Replacing the worn broom
« on: September 14, 2020, 06:02:33 pm »
I recently had to put aside the besom broom I use when gardening as it needs a new head. This got me thinking as I understand it can also be useful for sweeping a circle in ritual and casting situations and I wondered what would be used as a fast alternative - hoover? leaf blower?
As you can tell it was more a humorous thought than a serious one ( although, for all I know, they could work great ) and I thought I'd open up a post to see what great, useful or even crazy funny alternatives you can think of to replace ritual objects in a hurry?

Only for invoking work.  For banishing, you'll want to use a weed eater. :)
