Rose Ariadne's Chitchcraft Blog

Dear Friends,

While it is true that true magick lies within us and is contained in us wherever we go, being what I call a “portable witch” is something a little different. While I do primarily perform the majority of my magick in my own home or on my own property, there are occasions while I am out and about and find myself in need of some of my ritual tools for something that has popped up.

For that reason, I have a little portable ritual kit that I like to carry with me whenever I leave the house. Just as most people keep their car stocked with emergency items, I do too, however some of my emergency items include the tools I need to work a little magick! My portable kit consists of just the basics and is in no means comparable to the items I keep stocked at home, but I have found it to be suitable in just about any situation I am placed in while on the road and have never found the need to make any adjustments to what it contains.

My portable kit consists of a small travel bag that I picked up at a garage sale for a few bucks. It is not so big that I have a hard time finding room for it in my vehicle, but it is large enough to hold the tools I want to carry and it is strong and durable so I don’t have to worry about my tools being damaged if it falls apart. (Which can happen if you use something like a thin cloth bag or a cardboard box.)

I have a handful of tools that I keep in the bag that are basically a mish-mash of objects that I find work well together but also travel easily. I have a good size quartz crystal stone, and a tiny wand that I made specifically for my portable kit that is only about 6 inches long. There is a large clam shell that I can use to hold water and salt for cleansing, and of course salt to be used in the shell or for other purposes. I keep the salt in a simple plastic container with a tightly sealed lid so I don’t end up with salt all over the bag.

I have a small package of mini-taper candles in a variety of colors because they are more easily transported than large candles. If you cannot find mini-tapers, small tea-light candles or even a package of birthday candles made for birthday cakes will work just as well. I prefer to keep the candles in a little plastic storage bag, that way if they melt I don’t end up with candle wax sticking to everything and damaging any of my tools.

Finally, I have a small athame that is no more than three or four inches long, and a variety of different stones that I can use for various purposes. Most of this gets wrapped up in a small altar cloth that I made which is only about one square foot around, and then everything gets placed in the bag.

There is no way I could begin to tell you how many times my little portable witch kit has come in handy to me. I will say that I do not leave it in my car permanently as I would never want any harm to come to it, but I do take it with me every time I leave the house. Over time it has become such a habit to me to grab it as I head out the door, I rarely ever forget it. It is an invaluable set of tools to me, and something that I think no witch should leave home without. A portable kit is something that is very easy to throw together, and will help you in more ways than you could ever imagine.

Brightest Blessings,

    This is a great idea, I never thought to have one myself, I should make myself one also, the only thing that I thought so far to bring with me when I leave the house, was some stone and talisman in a pocket that I bring with me, but this is a very good idea, dear Rose, thank you. :smile:
