As with most other religions, tools are used in witchcraft to aid and enhance ritual worship. Most tools have no power in themselves, though they do have powerful symbolic significances. Their main purpose of tool is to help the magician focus his will and concentration.
There are specific tools for each kind of witchcraft.
In Wicca, the elemental tools represent the four elements of life: The Pentacle for Earth, The Wand for Air, The Athame for Fire, and The Chalice for Water. Some like the Wand and Athame (pronounced ath-ay-me) are used to invoke and direct whatever power we generate or pass through them.
-- Do not forget to cleanse the tools you mayu use of all negative energies and past use influences. To do this, clean the item physically and thoroughly while using visualisation. Then bury the item in the ground for a few days or put it in a bucket of water, thus allowing past associations to be dispersed and purified with earth’s energy or water.
