To achieve this overarching goal there are a couple of things I would like to work on.
- Read and Review a Pagan Book (hopefully 3)
- Create and Compile Grimoire and BOS
- Set up Altar
- Learn Tarot
- Cast Runes Once a Week
- Build Blog
After identifying six ways to meet my goal of spiritual growth I began breaking down some of the large goals in to manageable chunks using my My Goals app from the GooglePlay store. Reading one pagan book and reviewing it and casting runes once a week are pretty straight forward. However, there are several steps and actions I need to take to accomplish the others.
Create and Compile Grimoire and BOS
I want to work on compiling a hard copy of my Grimoire and start a Book of Shadows. I used to keep a BOS, but over the years it has collected dust and honestly, I don't even know where it is since we moved. To achieve this goal, I broke it up into chunks.
1. Find and purchase journal for BOS
2. Create or purchase Grimoire binding. I want
to be able to remove pages and rearrange
3. Setup Grimoire sections
4. Add at least 20 pages to Grimoire
5. Participate in the 2016 Grimoire Challenge. I
won't be able to do it everyday so I plan to
knock it out on the weekends.
Set up Altar
This is something I have never done because I don't believe in any deities. However, I think it is a beautiful way to honor the Earth and the Wheel of the Year while bringing magical energies into the home.
1. Find altar table
2. Find altar location
3. Decorate altar
This is pretty simple, but it has steps none the less. Plus it makes you feel awesome to check off easy things!
I have always wanted to learn tarot but have never gotten around to it. I find it fascinating.
1. Research tarot decks
2. Learning meaning of tarot
3. Purchase tarot deck
4. Practice reading tarot cards
I want to work on building my blog and expanding my audience not only to benefit you, my readers, but to help continue my learning and understanding through teaching.
1. Post 4x a month (set up goal in GoalTracker
2. Research best posting times
3. Set up contest
4. Post 6 witchy tips
5. Obtain reader feedback
6. Create watermark
7. Review 1 pagan book
8. Review 2 pagan items (hopefully I'll be able
to sign up for Sabbat box)
With everything still pretty crazy in my life, I know completing these tasks may be difficult, but I believe I've made each manageable and achievable. I also believe all of these will help me break free of the awkwardness I often feel performing magic and discussing it with others.
