Wiccan Chat Self-Care Rituals

Self-Care Rituals: Your #WiccanChat Recap

This week on #WiccanChat, we asked our beautiful Sisters and Brothers what they’d love to chat about! They chose Self-Care! We don’t realize how important it is to care for ourselves in today’s hectic and distant lifestyle; after all, we can’t heal others if we aren’t healthy, ourselves! Our Sisters and Brothers of The Craft answered questions and shared their favorite self-care rituals and more on Twitter as part of Plentiful Earth’s Wiccan Chat! This was our fifth Twitter chat, and we look forward to seeing our Pagan Twitter community grow!

Read our magickal recap below, and feel like you were part of the magick! Follow us on Twitter, and be sure to join us on Twitter every Wednesday at 11am Central time! We cover a new Wiccan topic every week!

  • “A1: When you’re exhausted you’re already past the point of needing some you time. Regular self-care rituals will help prevent or lessen  he burnout. It is critical that we take care of ourselves to always be replenishing our inner well of energy” @wickedwitch1987
  • “A1 I find that if you tend to take just 10 min to root yourself or meditate it will be refreshing for body and soul. #Wiccanchat”@Wicca_BluMoon
