I have just started reading a few Pagan books. One is called "Magickal Self-Defense" by Kerr Cuhulain. In it he states that you don't really need tools in magickal workings. He's not totally "against" them, he just says that magickal tools aren't really necessary. He says your best defense is your mind and how you use it.
Do you use alot of tools in your workings? Or do you just do your magickal workings "on the spot" so to speak sans stones, candles and athame?
I wonder too if stones and all the tools used in ritual are kind of like "magickal training wheels" that once you are an adept you no longer need them. I personally find my stones to be very protective, along with a smudge stick for cleansing and have a triple Goddess Necklace from a dear friend of mine that I never remove.
Your thoughts?? I guess i'm just curious to see how others view their magickal tools when it comes to doing ritual.
