A while back I mentioned trying broom magick. If you remember, I said I always thought of the broom as being just a tool until I read an article that treated the broom like a living thing, putting the broom in the same category as a familiar. I pondered this concept here and there. I finally decided that I didn't want a special broom reserved only for magick. The broom should be multipurpose; it should be used for both cleaning and spell work. After deciding that worked best for me, I had to resolve my next problem- where to keep it. I wanted the broom in the open where it was easily accessible. That eliminated both my household broom I keep on the porch and the small brooms and dustpans I keep under the sink. It seemed as if I would need a decorative broom after all. Then I noticed that not only do I have extra broom, but it resides in a place of power.
So today's plan is to clean the fireplace and then try to awaken my broom. I'll write a post later on how I do it, or even if it works. I may need a different plan. This also begs the question of if the other tools in the set can be used for magick. Could the shovel be a banishing tool? I intend to find out. After I find out what works I'll be able to write about what spells I'm able to do. Stay tuned.
