I highly recommend practicing ten minutes of witchcraft a day. Only ten minutes: don't pressure yourself to work above that (at least not yet).
I can already predict commenters arguing that this approach is lazy. I beg to differ. When you're lazy, you decide to do nothing because practicing too much effort. Performing magic ten minutes a day is doing something, even if you don't want to do it. That's the opposite of laziness. It's dedication.
Before you decide that ten minutes doesn't add up to anything, let's lay down the math.
10 minutes x 7 days a week = 70 minutes. That's over an hour of practice each week.
10 minutes x 7 days a week x 5 weeks = almost 6 hours of honing your magic skills.
Ten minutes isn't too much pressure. It doesn't intercept too much of your day. It's doable. It provides enough time for practice and reflection. And putting in the time lends you the motivation to continue the habit in the future.
Here's how to employ the ten-minute practice.
I've been applying my scrying skills using the ten-minute practice and I've already noticed an improvement. I hope this post motivates you to tackle your witchcraft goals.
