I’ve spoken about my mental health on this blog and the numerous struggles I’ve had with it. Though the medication I’m on seems to be working well for me, it doesn’t work well for me in every situation. The medication does well with my day-to-day anxiety, but for extreme bouts of anxiety caused by certain situations/scenarios, the medication does nothing. Lucky for me, the extreme bouts of anxiety have been far and few between, though the last month and a half has been ridiculously rough for me. My mental health is really hurting right now and I’m not sure how to start feeling better again.
I read this book awhile ago and honestly, I wish I would have remembered it while everything was going because I feel it would have aided me greatly. I know the word Witchcraft still holds negative meaning to some people, same with the word Therapy. Combine the two together and I’m sure some people will clutch their pearls in horror! But in my experiences, I have come to find both Witchcraft and Therapy to be helpful and have helped changed my life in positive ways. So coming across combining these two things made me feel like this book was made for me!
Many of the spells/rituals/witchy workings are only that way because of the ingredients involved in them. Most of them don’t even require anything witchy to do them and would be considered completely normal to do if found in any other book! One of the daily rituals is for becoming grateful and all you need for it is a few spare minutes in the morning, a notebook, and a pen or pencil, THAT’S IT! You don’t need to cast a circle, invoke the Goddess, or anything else, making this ritual something anyone can do whether they’re into witchcraft or not.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned with my experiences with The Craft it’s that witchcraft can be a calming and transformative experience. Witchcraft, like therapy, can be used as a way to grow and heal. Just as regular therapy gives you coping skills and ways to deal with life’s every day twists and turns, that’s what this book offers the reader- just with a few added ingredients and the word Witchcraft attached to it.
I can’t recommend this book enough. I feel that this book would be a great aid to anyone in need of some extra help on their mental health journey. I know extra help on my mental health journey will always be appreciated. So I hope you’ll consider giving this book a read or a glance through at the least. I found this book at Barnes & Noble on a day when I was looking for self help books and it just seemed to appear to me when I needed it the most.
Have you read any good self help or witchcraft related books recently? If so, what were they? I am currently compiling my list of 13 Books I Want to Read in 2022 list and could use some recommendations! I hope everyone has a great week!
