100 Ways to Live a Magickal Life Every Day

Do you ever feel like your life and spiritual practice just don’t live up to the magickal vision in your head? When you look at all the ridiculously beautiful altars and grimoires on Pinterest and Instagram, do you get a major case of witch-envy?

I totally know what that’s like – whether you prefer the simple, cottage aesthetic or the over-the-top, maximalist vibe, there’s an Instagram hashtag for all your witchy inspo. But inspiration can quickly turn to toxic comparison on social media.

If you’ve been feeling like your practice just doesn’t measure up or like your windowsill altar of a few crystals and a half-dead succulent isn’t magickal enough to be a “real” altar…


Just stop. Stop going down the road of comparison and shame.

I promise you:

🔮 Your practice is magickal enough.
💜 Your altar is beautiful enough.
😍 YOU are enough.
