“Throughout time, mirrors have been thought of as a tool that bridges a portal between the world’s of material and the spiritual. Many Witches immediately think of the classic black Witch’s motor made from a piece of clear glass with black paint on the black paint on the back. Those special mirrors are use for scrying, a technique for a visions psychically. Usually, the black mirror is set up in a dark room so that there is no reflection on it’s surface, and the Witch gazes deeply into it while focusing on the question at hand.
Sliver reflective mirrors can be magical tools as well. Mirrors can be used on the altar to double your spellwork, and many Witches place a candle on a mirror as part of an uncrossing ritual. Mirrors can also be a tool for reflecting on negative energies away from you. Place small mirrors in the window facing out to keep baneful vibes away from your home, or wear a mirrored jewelry known as a hexenspiegel to reflect and return psychic darts back to the sender. A mirror can be magically empowered to bless and protect you by radiating light and grace throughout your Witchy home.”

The outdoors is my temple/church. Mother Earth and Ra (Egyptian Sun God) are my guides as I travel the path of my spirituality. I look to all positive beings alive or dead to keep me company on this journey. The animals, birds and reptiles are also my brothers and sisters on the path of enlightenment. The trees, flowers, bushes, etc all give me something beautiful to look at no matter what season it is. My Spirit Guides, Totem/Spirit Animals, my Protectors and ancestors keep my safe and lead me in the right direction in life (when I listen).
What travels with you on your spiritual path?
Remember this well – Whatever type of energy you send out into the Universe it will come back to you three times as strong.
Remember being a Witch is not just all about doing spells, making charms and the other magickal parts; it is also about how you live your life.
Two rules to follow as you live your life and walk its path.
Do as ye will less it harm none.
Remember the threefold law – whatever you do comes back to you three times as strong.
Also keep in mind it is not the destination you reach at the end of this lifetime but the journey that takes you there, it should be loving and peaceful towards all people, other living things on Mother Earth and honoring your ancestors that have come before you.

We as Witches and Pagans are in a unique position to help others learn how they in a small way can make a difference in keeping our Mother clean and help restore her to health. Take a small bag with you when walking and pick up trash left behind by others let other people walking along or driving down the street see what you are doing. It just might make spark a thought in them to either do the same when they are about and about or better still not to litter at all.
If a Witch only has two tools they should be the ones that are most personal to any Witch. One being a Wand and the other their Book of Shadows. With these two tools a Witch can always cast a circle to perform all types of magick, have something handy to read and add to when out on a “nature” walk.
