Daily Witchcraft Challenges

Maybe you are at home with nothing much to do, perhaps you have slipped a little in your practice and don’t know how to get back, see my blog here for Lost Connection

Or perhaps you just like doing little challenges.

There have been a few monthly challenges floating around social media, some asking for photos, drawings or writing.  We ran a witchy one recently in our Kitchen Witch facebook group that was focused around the moon phases for a month.  I have included the challenge below with some adjustments and additions.

Set it to the moon phases, or just pick and choose the challenges that take your fancy.

Start each day by stepping outside and taking a deep breath in. Feel the energy of the day.  What feelings, thoughts or keyword do you feel for the day?

Some of them are quick challenges if you are short of time but I have given longer ones if you prefer.  Work with either or both.

The Challenges
