Sometimes you don’t have the money to buy the fancy ingredients needed for spells or to buy the nicest spiritual tool for your altar, and that’s okay!
Every now and then I’ll see some major shade and judgment thrown around online in regards to “cheap” tools to use in your spell work or practice. Sometimes referred to as Dollar Tree Witches.
In this YouTube episode (audio can also be found on The Goddess Life Podcast), I’m talking about this very topic. I use the analogy of preparing for and cooking a meal to preparing for a performing a spell.

Spring is all about new life! New endeavors and manifesting! Here’s a fun and easy ritual you can do for Ostara and the first day of spring! Even your kids can take part!
🌸 Take an egg (a symbol of fertility..seed..manifesting) and write on it what you are going to be manifesting in the coming months. Write it in the positive, like it’s already happening. For example, I am successful…not, I will be successful. Claim that dream!
🌸 Next, bury your egg outside (or in a pot) with seedlings or a new plant on top. And voila! Literally planting your fertility seed of manifestation!!
🌸I personally like to up the ante with essential oils. I breathe in the aroma while I hold the egg and visualize all my goals coming into fruition. Elevation to keep those vibes HIGH, Orange for success and confidence and creativity and patchouli for prosperity and a little grounding.
How to use a pendulum…Pendulums are an excellent tool! They actually aren’t as mystical and mysterious as you may think. There’s real science behind how pendulums work!
So how does a pendulum work exactly? Well, pendulums are a tool that you can use to connect to your intuition and subconscious mind. There is a term called “ideomotor response”. This is used a lot in hypnotherapy for the hypnotherapist to communicate directly with a clients subconscious, while the client is under hypnosis. Basically, while under hypnosis, your conscious mind is preoccupied or “asleep” in a sense. This leaves your subconscious mind more able to communicate. The hypnotherapist will ask the subconscious to show a sign for responses such as yes, no, I don’t know. The subconscious mind will send little nerve signals to the fingers and the fingers will give slight twitches in response to the questions being asked. In this state, the hypnotherapist can get answers from the clients subconscious mind that the conscious mind, or ego, may not be aware of.
Pendulums work in much the same way! When using a pendulum, you’re occupying your conscious mind with the task of holding the pendulum still. Even though your conscious mind is working hard to hold the pendulum still, you subconscious mind will be sending little nerve signals to your arm and hand in response to the questions being asked. Science! Pretty cool huh?
So in this way, you can use the tool of the pendulum to tap into the answers and knowledge you already have deep within you, even if your conscious mind isn’t aware of it. It’s quite literally a tool to connect to your intuition and subconscious mind.
