  • How familiar are you with witchcraft?
    I have practised varying forms for witchcraft all my life, although haven't always called it that. As I live in an atheist/christian house hold I have always kept my craft hidden in the mundane.
  • Have you explored other paths?
    I have studied (todifferent extents) many beliefs, religions and traditions. I am an animist and an empath. I believe everything/one is connected I don't believe everything in fate, I believe you should take charge of your own life. I don't believe that 'magic' and science should be kept apart.
  • Have you ever worked with Traditional Witchcraft?
    Not a predefined tradition. I love reading folk stories and lore on herbs that's were i first came across what i did being defined as witchcraft.
  • What does Traditional Witchcraft mean to you?
    For me witchcraft is where science, rationality, and the logical mind meets the supernatural (for want of a better word) and that which needs 'blind' trust. The recognition and manipulation of the energy around me weather it’s the radiation from the sun or that of emotions.
  • How long have you worked with witchcraft in general?
    As above
  • What brought you to our site?
    I have followed this site for a couple of months and there is a great sense of community.
  • What do you expect to get from this site, and what do you expect to contribute to this forum?
    I want to explore new ideas and talk to like minded people I hope to share my opinion, my knowledge and my art when i have the time and inspiration to do it.
  • Do you belong to any other online witchcraft sites?
    No
  • What are your strongest points in witchcraft?
    I can 'feel' the energies around me
  • What are your weakest points in witchcraft?
    Trusting my instincts
  1. I defiantly agree with it having too faces and i'm finding that they affect my reading of the runes the few times I've used them in divination. I hadn't really considered the effect of the original making of the glass, that's another layer that would be interesting to explore thanks for your comment

    Soaring by the Sea

    There isn’t really a point to this post other than me collecting my thoughts. I have never had a very strong relationship with the sea. Trailing the beaches for washed up treasures was always the highlight of my family holidays, to sit on the rocks in the coastal winds and I’ll happily go for walks in the rain bare foot down the beach, but being cold and wet in the sea just makes me feel groggy and shivery rather than refreshed and grounded. My new rune set, which I posted earlier in the week, took me by surprise with its strong connection with the sea. Not sure why now looking back of course they would have, each one having been forged by the sea , theydon’t carry energy from another living creator or plant (like shells or woodsdo) the energy is purely of the sea and very primal. I expected the energy to be more subtle, gentle and calm flowing energy that I associate with water, and sunny beach days, not stormy seas and waves crashing against rocks. Today I crossed the English Channel on a ferry and got to see the amazing agility of the gulls as they dived and swerved to catch the bread people were throwing them. They rode on the currents of the westerly wind blowing over the ferry following us over to France. I am a glider pilot (although not very in practice I’ll admit) and watching them I felt a familiarity withthem and their life by the sea. Now I’m driving in land away from the cost and towards what is familiar, but maybe next time I go to the sea I’ll give swimming a go and see if I can connect with its energy.

    New Blog!

    Finally I’ve taken the time to work out how to use the blog on here! I will admit I’m not the best of bloggers, nothing ever really happens in my day to day life, but as I’m currently holidaying in the French countryside and have been experiencing a lot of change lately I’m going to give it ago even if it is only for the next few weeks… … although from past experience it will soon deteriorate into rants and ramblings.
  4. I loved reading this thread as knot magic my favorate way of doing 'spells'... It's just so practical I spin (using my trusty little drop spindle) my own yarn using wool fleece from my aunt as she keeps sheep. In the past I have used menstrual blood to 'dye' my wool before spinning it ,I've also spun in hair, strips of cloth, feathers, ect and used it for poppets and charms. I find the act of spinning the dyed wool 'locks' in the energies of my blood and stops it weakening when the blood dries and goes brown. These cords I store for when I need them, I usually keep a couple handy. There are two ways I use them for knot magic, either I tie a knot to trap a thought or energy with the intention of burning or burying it. Usually though I use them to store energy, I do this by looping the yarn through its self (crochet chain stitch) while saying myintent, visualising ect. Then when I need it I can just pull the end and theloops unravel releasing the energy again. I have never used blood from a pin prick this way only because I can prick my finger whenever but I have to wait up to amonth for menstrual blood. I've also not used menstrual blood as a sacrifice for the same reason.
