  • Welcome to our "Non-Wiccan" Community!


    WARNING!  ADULT CONTENT
     

    This forum is for those educated in one or more craft traditions, and is not an appropriate forum for those totally new to witchcraft. Go forth to seriously read and learn before applying for membership.

    This site is intended for a more mature audience of 18 years or older (21 in some states).
    If you are underage or offended by strong language, tough debates and hot banter, please leave now.

     

    We both collided with each other online in 2006 and since that day remained the very best of friends.  We decided to do something for the Traditional Witches out there so please note this is a site purely for Traditionals. If you are looking for "New Age" Wiccan/Gardnerian 'Traditional' Witchcraft then we are sorry but you are not welcome to join.
     
    If you are already a Traditional Witch (practising the Old Craft before Wicca) or you are on a different Traditional path, which embraces working with a variety of energies, and wish to mingle with like minded folk, then please stay a while and browse around and feel free to join.

    Our forum is absolutely packed with some very interesting debates, discussions and opinions amongst our ever growing members.
     
    There are not many sites purely dedicated to Traditional Witchcraft as Wiccan sites have really taken over the internet. Although Wicca and Traditional Witchcraft are a similar path, they are actually entirely different in the way of working and beliefs, hence this is NOT a Wiccan site.  Unfortunately, on many Wiccan sites a Traditional's point of view tends to create an odd atmosphere and we end up feeling like outcasts.

    All Traditionalists who work open mindedly and can embrace the dark as well as the light are welcome here! This site is intended to be a portal for information and interactivity with other Traditional Witches and other Traditional Crafts.  You can have your say and post here as much as you like without fearing your beliefs will cause any biased comebacks by others on an alternative path.  

    Most of the main articles and information will be based on our own thoughts and beliefs and what works for us but you are more than welcome to submit your own articles too.  Please note that some of the Festival and Ritual information gathered in the main menu are not followed by all Traditional Witches but they have been provided as an information or reference resource.
     
    In our experience we have found that many Traditional Witches' beliefs and ways of working can vary considerably, so we ask that you do respect ours and others personal opinions and views, as you too are more than welcome to also share your own Traditional beliefs and ways of doing things

    This site is a COMMUNITY site and filled with non-wiccans, worldwide.  If you are looking for purely intellectual sparse nitty-gritty conversation, then you won't enjoy it here. We  have a very laid back and friendly forum, which is exactly what we aimed for and will continue to promote. 

    Once again, welcome, and we look forward to getting to know you.

    Sandy and Brian

    • I have touched on this subject before, probably the only interesting addition to this topic as far as my story goes, when I started out I got into EVERYTHING occult and one of my main interests was ghosts. Being just a kid I didn't know what a ghost was exactly but it sounded awesome..so..ouija, rituals, scrying..anything, just to gain contact. And I did, very easily so. It was frightening ! I still remember so much from that day, it was not at night, not in the dark, not anything that you would expect. It was that one day when I did not follow any ritual or ouija. Me and my friend at the time who was also into anything spiritual was in my room messing around with my "witch bag", I had a bag that I kept my herbs, crystals etc in. A really cool bag that you can wrap out like a cloth - I have posted photos of it on my IG - anyway, I use the bottom for divination. Point being, in the beginning apart from the scary first meeting and the constant feeling of being watched during the following months or so things started to get really interesting. It sound pretty cliché The Craft (all though this was way before that movie..) when I say that my "spells" started to REALLY work. They had prior to the meeting as well but nowI felt a bit like I wasn't quite in control but I could make bigger things happen. However, it was always a price to pay. Fast forward 30 years my path is pretty much the same, I have always been open minded and added whatever feels right to my craft, be it trad. norwegian, shamanistic related, rootwork..anything that feels right. But the one thing I want to change is the entity. I have been thinking about the possibility of changing it, trading it for another. I know, what is she saying ? Basically I want to find a specific spirit, demon, call it what you want, and hopefully give my services to that in order to trade.  have never heard of such a thing but then again I have experimented with unheard of things before with often good results. I'm rambling..recently I have been studying demonology whenever I have a spare moment trying to find a entity that feels right. I know chances are slim but, anyone else been in a similar situation ? Maybe I sound ungrateful but trust me, I can feel it getting worse, I think I am next at some point if I don't suck it up and put on my big girl boots and kick this demon bastard out of my life.(in trade of another one...😳  ) So, that's the change I've gone through the last 30 + years. 
    • Haha, yeah, that was one of my ideas last night, and I set up a "exercise room"...in my "witch room"..I have guest room with a hidden shelf and all my goodies scattered around  looking like interior.  I still have my altar in the living room but there is a limit to what I can load on it as gifts/sacrifice..I mean,  if it ain´t remotely related to incense or look like interior nicknacks then I can't put it there..and we all know how picky some of our friends are, right ?      "Hey, gimme bacon!!" - lays bacon beside the oil burner. BF sees bacon laying casually on top of the radio.."What is this, GF ?" ..."Ooooh..uuuhm..incense...?"    Yeah, not exactly perfect set up.  But yeah,I have a work project dealing  with demons, magic, ghosts, creatures from folklore, and luckily it includes sigils ! So, I can sit and read books and take notes in the open without it looking like I'm planning a trip to Blåkulla.
    • How is your eye?
    • I can sympathize with you there,  I am never alone either.  However, I have an Art Room to which I retreat to and can do some things in private.  Writing in my Grimoire, research and some preparatory work.  My Altar is in full view though, so I am discrete using that and all people see are lit candles and incense. NorwegianWitch, just tell people you are doing research.
    • I basically live two lives -- the real me hidden from everyone and the public me. I keep my craft away from the public eye because of negative experiences. I also find it more comfortable to be private about it. It is for me alone.  Clearly it is obvious that I am interested in the occult, as most people would call it, but as I am a historian and a hobby botanist it is quite easy to keep reality hidden from family, friends etc. But a very good reason to keep it private is my professional life - I deal with people from all over the world and many are not positive about witchcraft, it could easily make it difficult for my work if everyone knew me - what I'm really like. It is stupid to have to hide like this in 2021 but that's the way it is !  Another thing that's been on mind a lot last year is how hard it's been to practise now that I am never alone. I find it hard to slip away to do anything. Not even tarot, like a quick read. I just never have time for myself - anyone else feel like this ?
