Online Magic Tip #4: Don't Get Too Attached to Your Tools

Learning how to use magical tools such as the Wand, Athame, Firebowl, Chalice, and Plate is such a wondrous process. For some of our students, using magical tools is their favorite part of the Basic Magic course (now available online). Magical tools enhance our energies. Magical tools can direct, focus, and increase our energies.

Every practicing magician should have his or own set of magical tools. And, the more you use your tools in your practice the more they become "keyed" or personalized to your energies ... making them even more effective.

So magical tools are wondrous, but ... don't get too attached to them!

"Why?" you ask. Because you may find yourself in a situation where you need to perform a magical ritual in which you normally use one or more magical tools. What do you do?

Luckily, in most cases you can still perform the magical ritual, either by using your body as an energy conduit or by finding a substitute for your magical tool. For instance, the night time blessing ritual normally calls for a "keyed" Chalice, meaning a Chalice that has been personalized to your own energies using the Firebowl. If you need to do the night time blessing ritual--to settle a fussy child for the night, for instance--but you don't have your own Chalice handy, you can do an emergency "quick key." Simply flow water blue energy through a handy water goblet for a few minutes, which temporarily keys the goblet so you can do the ritual.

So use your magical tools--key them, charge them, personalize them ... just don't get too attached to them. Practice doing magic rituals with and without your tools so that you don't find yourself in a bind when you need your magical tools but don't have them handy!
