So I am getting ready to teach and am rereading a lot of begining witchcraft books and notes. I am realizing that You don't have to have a fancy athame, wand or cauldren to be a witch. Everything we do starts with our greatest tool ourselves the other tools just help us focus our energies. I am loving going through the basics doing everything I would ask of my students and learning a new thing or two from the Spirits.
I have reread the CHarge of The Goddess and this sticks out for me:
You shall be free from slavery, and as a sign that you are really free, you shall be naked in your rites; and you shall dance, sing, feast, make music, and love, all in My praise. For Mine is the ecstasy of the spirit, and Mine also is joy on Earth; for My law is love unto all beings.
Which is so true keep it simple and I will hear you just as well as if not better than the person with the millon dollar athame. I hope to help other help themselves even if it is a stick for a wand a kitchen knife for an athame and a blanket for am altar.
May you all be blessed and loved who read this.. WillowStar
