Can I use witchcraft in my everyday school life?

How do I successfully incorporate spiritual witch craft and magic into my everyday work/school life?

Like any spiritual path, Wicca should be a part of our everyday lives. The rituals and spells aren’t the only elements of Wicca. We can’t- or shouldn’t- honor the god and goddess, the elements, our own spirits, or nature only when we are in need of something and only when we sit or stand at our altar for a ritual or spell.

We should shift our focus in our everyday lives. The actions aren’t purely physical. Taking a shower, going to school, going to work, taking a vacation, paying bills, washing the car, feeding your pet- all these things can be an opportunity to explore spirituality even deeper than rituals and spells will allow.

When you wash anything, focus on the powers of the water. Feel it’s energy and recognize its abilities. When you are at school, be more in tune with your consciousness and find the spiritual aspect of lessons you may learn. When you are out in the world, you come in contact with other people. Try to feel the energy of other people who are around you. Don’t just look at your contact with them as being superficial.

I recommend reading Living Wicca by Scott Cunningham. It shows that Wicca is a way of life and not just a religion. Our rituals, our celebrations, our spells- are all important to us. But, our spiritual path should be influencing our actions and thoughts in our everyday lives as well.

*This is true for ANY path you decide to follow, not just Wicca. No matter what your lifesyle, you should learn how to live according to your beliefs, not just speak of them.
Here are some things we can do each day to focus on Wicca as a lifestyle:

1. Honor the god and goddess daily- say a prayer, make an offering to them with incense or light a candle for them.
2. Write about your journey in your Book of Shadows.
3. Plant and tend to a garden or keep potted plants around the house.
4. Meditate daily. Just take some time when you are free.
5. Take a walk outside- go to a park, walk in the woods, walk in the moonlight and be aware of the spirit in the trees, grass, all parts of the earth and nature.
6. Experiment with divination.
7. Interact with other Wiccans. If you don’t know any, find a Wiccan chatroom or message board online.
8. Write new rituals and spells. Write chants, poems.
9. Listen to Pagan music.
10. Make an herbal satchel.

These are some things we can do each day to stay in touch with our spirit and the spirit around us. There are many more things you can do, and you might develop your own daily routine. You don’t have to incorporate ALL these things into every day. But you should include the things that are important to you. Remember that all time is sacred, we just need to start experiencing it in the right way. Make Wicca your life, and your spirituality, not just your religion.
