It’s all in the details. The bits and pieces of our work as Contemporary Vitkis. Exploring this concept is the challenge that has been placed before me by the gods for this season of introspection. As days are shorter I shall endeavor to explore this concept.
What do I mean by details?  Things like what kind of incense to use for a ritual. The color of candles to use. Is there a better day or time of the moon to do a ritual. Stuff like that. I admit to being woefully ignorant of much of this information.
I’ve always been a big picture guy. Thinking about the intention and end results of a working. But I’ve often rushed over the details to get to the end product. I have been told rather sternly that I’m to cut that crap out and get down to the details now. This opens up a whole new realm for me to explore. Things I’ve never thought of are coming to mind.
I will spend this season of thought thinking of these issues.   I have been told that if I get the details right the big picture will take care of itself.
Why this hasn’t occurred to me in all my years of practice is beyond me. It seems so obvious. It’s the old forest seeing the trees thing. So it appears I have my work cut out for me.
Does this new realization negate my years of work so far?  Hardly. But it does put it all in a separate place. There will be my work before this understanding and after it.
As is always the case when I’m faced with a huge new concept to explore I am thinking “Where do I start?  What do I do?”.  Very valid questions to be sure. But I need to fight off the urge to become paralyzed by it all. I need to get into action mode.   So what kind of incense goes best for a manifestation ritual…?
