“You said that if I want to prepare to do ritual on the astral plane, it helps for me to begin by practicing visualizing something as simple as a rubber ball,” my friend, Jessica, said.
“Yes,” I replied.
“How am I going to motivate myself to consistently practice visualization?” she asked.
“I have a couple of questions for you,” I began.
Here are three insights.
- Identify your tendencies.
We begin by looking into your tendencies. I talked with a friend who identified people’s reasons for taking action as falling into three categories:
- “For the team” person
- “I want to achieve” person
- “I want comfort above all else” person
Do you relate to one of these three categories?
Will you do more for others than for yourself? I find that I fit this category. I frequently jump to help friends and family members.
Do you really want to achieve something? Is witchcraft something that you want to master?
Do you want more relaxation and comfort?
The idea is to find out what your tendencies are. Then use what you learn to help you motivate yourself.
- Support your own path.
Learning and practicing the Craft is work. How do you get yourself to do work?
I found that if I make something a routine, I can get it done.
I also set my timer to remind me to do things—including the time for me to clean my cat’s litterbox.
My point is: You are unique. You will do better when you observe what patterns help you consistently do work … even the work of improvement in the Craft.
For example, I have my morning prayer on my laptop computer. I cannot use my laptop without seeing my morning prayer on it and reciting my prayer early in my day.
What will you do to set up a pattern, so you consistently practice elements of the Craft?
- Invite the Goddess to show you what can help your unique path.
Here is a prayer.
Prayer to the Goddess
Lovely Lady of the Moon,
Guide me to find my way.
Give me consistency and patience for my growth in the Craft.
Let Your light of intuition guide me to better self-knowledge.
Let me rise in my journey to know myself better with the Craft.
By Your Light may I be free,
So Mote It Be.
May these insights support your path.
