You all know, daily life ain´t no easy feat. You wake up everyday and got tons of things to do: get dressed, take a shower, brush your teeth, hear some crazy ideas from your husband or kids, all of this mixed up and not necessarily in this order!
Only those who have patience to do simple things perfectly ever acquire the skill to do difficult things easily.James J. Corbett
So yeah, the daily grind can sharper anyones edges, and it does. That´s why I threw you a happy quote above, so you can catch your breath and dive into the interesting subject we´re gonna talk about today: the life of a witch!
Witch daily routine
Every day we go through so many things, we have to do some magic to keep up the good spirits and hold our horses not to go around taking it out on others, right? That kind of behavior is not just unnecessary, it´s also rude.
So let´s check out the 5 great things we can practice and try to put on our lives to make it great for us and our loved ones:
- Take a deep breath
- Put yourself in others shoes
- Do some exercises
- Drink coffee
- Think about the age of the universe and how insignificant the little problems become in such a gigantic timetable
Take a deep breath
I know this is cliché, but nothing can replace the steadiness of your breathing. It´s incredible how basic this is, being the most urgent of our biological functions, but even more incredible is how little people ACTUALLY focus on their breathing rithm.
Let´s get crazy here for a moment and delve into some ancient instructions about it:
3.38 – By self-control of the nerve-currents utilising the lifebreath, one may levitate, walk on water, swamps, thorns, or the like.The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali – Translation by BonGiovanni
3.39 – By self-control over the maintenance of breath, one may radiate light.
How about that for witchcraft?! It doesn´t get more exoteric than this! I wonder that the broom so often associated with flying witches is actually a result of “self-controlling the nerve-currents utilising the lifebreath”? That´s an interesting hypothesis right there!
Coming back to more mundane levels, people nowadays resort more and more to sedative drugs, while simply taking a moment to calm your breathing would be equally (or even more) beneficial, not to say cheaper! 🙂

Put yourself in others shoes
Easier said than done, right? But how rejoicing it is when WE get that feeling of being understood and respected! So what we gotta strive for is to spark the same joy on others, but not like an easy smile fool: it´s paramount to develop genuine empathy, otherwise it will just look and feel fake and won´t do any good.
