With the exception of my candles, wand, crystals, moon water and incense, this witch is All-Digital-All-The-Time!! I rely on my devices for enrolling in magickal instruction, keeping my library of books on witchcraft, for staying in touch with my coven and for keeping my Book of Shadows. Spells 8 alone has made my techno-witchery journey resplendent! For a witch in the broom closet, It’s a portable and private way to keep everything at hand. My bathing rituals are always accompanied by positive energy music stored on my mp3 player. Car rides are always accompanied by Audiobooks on witchcraft. Currently listening to: " Scottish Witchcraft: A Complete Guide to Authentic Folklore, Spells, and Magickal Tools".
I would love to have a beautiful leather-bound BOS to flip through and write in, but I just can’t have those things out in the open right now. There’s a wonderful thread comparing and contrasting keeping a hand-written BOS vs. using a computer to do so on our forum: Handwritten or Printed
I know that technology might seem less personal than other traditional tools of witchcraft, but these devices are so full of personal energy! We carry them around and channel energy through them all day. Not to mention almost all these devices contain a quartz crystal for controlling the timing of the computer chips! I think this little fact is such a witchy-fun one!!
It’s amazing the vast amount of information I have learned and stored on my devices that I could not have acquired or accumulated as quickly without. I guess that’s stating the obvious, but I say this as an expression of extreme gratitude!! I was not fortunate enough to have grown up with parents or grandparents who could pass down the traditions of the Craft and came to my practice late in life without a teacher in my proximity. And most importantly, I couldn’t have found all of YOU without technology!!
I love that we share links in the forum and discuss topics so far reaching across the web! At the moment, I am enjoying an in-depth study of the Tarot via an online course: https://www.biddytarot.com/
This course includes some wonderful soul meditations on the major arcana and some creative ways to connect with these cards. For instance, if a tarot card was a famous person, who would it be?
It’s all Techno-tastic!
