Lately, I see a variety of people posting similar questions within FB groups and other community discussion groups. The questions I repeatedly see go like this, “How can I bring more magick into my life?” or “How do I become a Witch?” and “What do you do to feel Witchy?”
Personally, I LOVE to see these questions. It means you are curious! Curiosity is what drives learning, and through knowledge, we build a solid foundation for our craft. We all practice our crafts differently. What better way to learn about the different practices under the umbrella of Witchcraft than to explore them? Through exploration and learning, we gain understanding. There are plenty of things you can do each day that will help you draw more magick into your life. In conjunction, taking time each day to do something magickal is how one learns to practice the craft.
BUT the one ruler over it all will always be your attitude. The mindset you keep will be the one deciding factor in what kind of magickal life you lead, as well as the type of magick you allow into your life.
The repeated postings of these questions got me thinking about my path and how I got to where I am today. I explored and sampled as many paths as I could before I realized my path. The path I follow today is vastly different compared to how I practiced 20+ years ago. I encourage exploration. This is how you discover what works for you and what does not.
In light of this, I decided to offer you something that will help guide you. Below are 28 daily activities that will help you bring more magick into your life. These activities will also help you learn about how the craft is practiced by others. Take one day at a time. Take time to explore! This is how you learn and grow stronger within your convictions.

This 28-day journey only scratches the surface of the craft. You can take each of these days and stretch them out over a year and more. I am merely giving you some suggestions to get you started.
I hope you will comment on your experiences and how you felt each day. Most importantly I would love to hear how you feel after the 28days are complete. Did any of these activities change your perspective related to Witchcraft? Do you feel like you are stronger on your path? Did any of these activities help you feel more stable and balanced on your path?
I will leave you to it with one final note. Sometimes we become too serious on our journey. I want you to enjoy the journey. This is about self-discovery. This path should be enjoyable and meaningful. Yes, sometimes there is a need and place for seriousness, but not all the time. Live your path, love you path and laugh often!
Wishing you luck and many bright blessings!!

Thank you so much! This is perfect for me as a newbie. I will definitely do all of these though I have already done some of them. 😊
I try to do something similar every day, it keeps me connected to my path and helps me grow.
Very helpful. I can’t wait to try these out!
This was so helpful. Researching various topics for the calendar tasks has led me to some amazing sites, people, and even podcasts. It’s become a rabbit hole of enchantment 😊
I wish to express some appreciation to the writer just for bailing me out of this particular circumstance. Right after scouting through the world-wide-web and finding ways which are not beneficial, I thought my life was done. Existing without the presence of strategies to the issues you’ve resolved by way of your good guide is a serious case, as well as the ones that might have badly affected my career if I hadn’t noticed your blog post. The natural talent and kindness in controlling the whole lot was helpful. I’m not sure what I would’ve done if I had not come upon such a stuff like this. I can also at this point relish my future. Thanks a lot very much for the skilled and result oriented help. I will not think twice to endorse your web sites to any person who needs and wants counselling about this subject.
Thank you very much. I am so glad you found my blog. My goal is to help those who need my insight and experience. Often I am not sure what I write or do matters, then readers like you remind me! As long as what I do helps, I will continue. Blessed Be!
Any suggestions for witchy music?
Some of my favorites are Danheim, Loreena McKennitt, and Beats Antique.
I love this! Thank you.
Thank you so much for the time and effort you put into this! <3 I look forward to printing the calendar and implementing the suggestions each day!
I appreciated this post. I have recently begun acting on my desire to learn about and develop my own path into witchcraft. I was happy to see that I have already done a lot of the things on this list over the past month which adds some “validity” to the steps I have taken!!!! Thank you! I am feeling very excited to continue learning and growing!
