Day 30: Make a Commitment to Yourself
What practice are you going to continue past this month? Take a few minutes today to write about your journey over the last 30 days and see how this challenge has affected your spiritual practice. Are there things you want to keep from this challenge? How have your thoughts changed about yourself and your Craft?
Although it took well over a month, I have really enjoyed getting back to performing some sort of spiritually or witchy nourishing thing each day. It’s funny, because as I look back over the 30 days of things to do, the first ones are the most important to me: grounding & centering/breath-work. I think those have always been important for how I handle myself not only in spiritual situations, but just everyday situations as well.
I always think that I’m not doing enough, and it turns out that actively thinking about all the things that I do do… well, it’s enough. Being spiritual doesn’t have to be a big dramatic thing every day. That’s what creating a ritual is for. Even spellcraft doesn’t have to be dramatic, mine usually never is. It’s quiet words spoken over candles, incense, herbs, and crystals deep in the night, and soft music in the background.
I do enjoy more formal ritual, but I have to finally admit to myself that I enjoy it much more if I’m with people (how I miss the Cov <3). So this whole process has really just let me see that I already am doing what I need to do to keep my foundations strong. That I have a lot of power within me, and can work with the power inherent in everything else just as easily. With many thanks, of course.
Thanks so much to Plentiful Earth for this wonderful challenge! ❤
