Hello and blessed be lovelies! I’m really excited to share this post with you all because I’ve gotten a lot of question from beginner Wiccans on how to merge your practice into your everyday life.
Wicca shouldn’t just be celebrated on the Sabbats and full moons, although that is a big part of it. Living Wicca everyday, that’s the goal! It’s a way of life, a way of being, a way of living that is so rewarding and fulfilling.
Even if you aren’t Wiccan but you’re a witch, magick is the same way because we’re all magick!
I know this is really difficult, especially for those who are just starting out but once you get into a groove everything will work itself out.
This post will, hopefully, give you some ideas and inspiration on how to live in your daily practice and connect with the energies all around you everyday of your life!
If you are a total beginner or new to my blog you can check out my post All About Wicca which is an awesome overview for people just starting!

Do I have to do something Witchy everyday? What if I forget?
You certainly don’t have to do a gigantic ritual every day, I mean even I don’t have that kind of time. But I would recommend connecting yourself to the world around at least once every day.
I’m going to give you my entire routine but here are a few more examples that you can use in your daily life:
Carry a crystal with you
Take a walk
Stand in the sun
Stand under the moon
Make an offering to your deities
Write in your book of shadows
Draw a tarot card or do a spread if you have time
Read a book about Wicca or magick
Light a candle and meditate
Eat and be mindful
Touch a tree
Journal about your path
Tend to your garden if you have one
Feel the wind
There are a million other things you can do as well as these but this is just to show you even the smallest thing is spiritual and magickal if you want it to.
So what do I do everyday?
I have a full-time job as well as running my blog so I have to get up early, unfortunately, usually around 6:30.
The first thing I do everyday when I wake up is pray. Some Wiccans may not agree with this, but prayer is essential to my practice. Some days I’ll do a more involved prayer and use my rosary, but most days I just light a candle, which I keep next to my bed, and say a quick one.
“Oh gracious goddess, oh gracious god,
Thank you for my many blessings.
Keep me strong, safe and positive throughout the day.
Guide me on my path.”
After that, I like to brush my teeth. When the water is running I think about the water, its power and how necessary it is to life. I imagine it purifying me.
At this point I sit myself in front of my computer and attempt to get some blog work done before I have to go to work around 7:30.
Before I leave I’ll slip a crystal in my pocket, most of the time it’s amethyst or lapis lazuli and put my Virgo amulet on.
Every time I go outside and the sun is shining, I take a moment and revel in the God’s light and power shining down on me, energizing me.
Once I get to work I eat breakfast. I say grace before I eat and I try as much as possible to stay mindful of all the things that had to happen in order for me to able to enjoy the food in front of me.
At work, everything is pretty mundane but sometimes I will light a candle and meditate which gives my eyes a rest from staring at my computer screen.
On my lunch break I’ll eat, of course, but I’ll also do a small tarot spread. Usually a three card spread.
Once I’m home from work I take 30 minutes and I journal, usually about how I’m feeling but also if I felt any messages that day from my deities.
I’ll also read from whatever book I’m stuck in that day and make sure I write something in my book of shadows even if it’s just my tarot reading for that day.
Then I will go back to working on my blog for around 4 or 5 hours. During this time I listen to pagan music, my favorites are SJ Tucker and Celtic Sands.
Once the sun goes down I like to take a walk down the street and look up at the moon. Sometimes my boyfriend will go witch me since it isn’t always safe for a girl to walk alone at night.
Then I’ll come back upstairs and shower, this is probably my favorite part of the day. I imagine I’m standing under a waterfall and the water is purifying me. Taking away all the negativity and stress from my body and pushing it down the drain. I picture the goddess, her light and power uplifting me.
Usually this is the time I get ready for bed. I pray and then I’ll light a candle and visualize how I want the next day to go. I visualize positivity and productivity. I visualize happiness. I visualize the goddess and god and then I extinguish the candle and pass out.
That’s all for my everyday routine. Sometimes I will do certain things and sometimes I won’t. It really depends on how I’m feeling that day.
What if I forget or I’m too tired?
It’s very important to remember that the goddess and god do not punish us.
You aren’t going to get in trouble or offend them if you don’t meditate every day or you forget to say a prayer before you go to sleep.
These things are just ways that we can grow closer to them.
You aren’t a bad Wiccan if you don’t do a tarot spread everyday or if you don’t always carry a crystal around with you.
Honestly, by just acknowledging the energies and the power that surrounds you you’re already having a ritual, and that is already bringing you closer to the goddess and god.
Does my routine have to look exactly like this?
No, of course not.
This is how I practice Wicca and how it fits into my life, but we are all different and that’s okay!
You shouldn’t try to force your practice to look like anyone else’s. Just try out the different things that speak to you and use what works and forget about what doesn’t work.
Prayer is important to me but irrelevant to others. It’s all about finding your path and what works for you.
Where’s the magick???
To me, the magick is in life.
Yes of course there are spells and sometimes I will cast a spell if I need to. But most of the time I try to find the magick in the mundane.
A flower blooming. The wind rushing against my window. The light sprinkle of rain or the heavy fog in the morning.
All these things are of the goddess and god, of the divine and are, by definition, magickal. Just like me and just like all of us.
To me that’s what it’s like to live your practice. To see the magick and divine in everything.
How can I get started?
Well that’s up to you.
I would recommend picking one item off the list I gave at the beginning of this post and try doing it everyday for a week.
Don’t beat yourself up if you forget, or miss a day because it’s all about learning.
As the weeks go by pick another thing off the list and another and soon you will start to realize what you like doing and what you don’t. Keep what you like and forget what you don’t.
And always remember to look for the magick in the mundane, I promise you it’s there.
Well loves I believe that’s all for this post!
