Witchy Habits for 2020
I do hope that 2020 has been treating you well so far! From New Year’s Day, we often spend January planning things we want to achieve, actions we want to drop and projects we want to take up. Witchcraft is no different, so I have prepared a couple of Witchy Habits to help see you through 2020.
First thing first readers… we all need to stop doubting just about everything, but most of all ourselves. The choices we take, the food we eat, the dreams we aspire to, the tarot card we have chosen… all these things are doubted by millions across the globe every day, and there is no need to worry so much. You have decided something for a reason, don’t let it bring you down.
Trust your intuition
This next habit can only be achieved once we have stopped doubting everything that we do. Once we allow ourselves to go with the flow, we can then truly tune into our own gut instinct. Listening to your gut instinct however, is only one step. You then need to trust it and act upon it. Your body and sub conscious is telling you something for a reason – don’t ignore it.
Find magic in the little things
Growing up, and even now, I loved looking out the window and just looking at the world around me. I used to have a tree behind my house, which never looked the same every day. That in itself is magical. The nature around us adapts to live and thrive in the world it is in, as do we! There is magic all around us, and finding magic in the most mundane things can sometimes be the most inspiring.
Light a candle
My last habit for 2020 is lighting a candle everyday, or at least every week. Candles, even when not performing rituals or candle magic, provide a place of comfort, warmth and focus. Even lighting a tea light first thing in the morning or last thing at night, gives us a routine where we can meaningful do something to bring light into our lives. I often like to visualise or give thanks when lighting my tea lights – that is conquering two habits in one!
As you may see, none of these are particularly “witchy”; nevertheless, they are all as equally important to massive 3 hour long rituals if that is what you like to do. As I mentioned previously, it is the smaller things that can bring us ever closer to our dream life and spirituality, not to mention that we cannot expect ourselves to perfectly perform much harder things if we have not yet mastered the small tasks.
