I am quite familiar with witchcraft in the basic form. I started when i was young and was taught in a round about way by my grandparents. Mainly through folklore stories. I started with candle magic and writing spells on paper. Later I found Wicca and it was not witchcraft it was a religion which didn't sit well with me. I found the best witchcraft is from your heart and your own intent.
Have you explored other paths?
I started as a child between 10 and 13 years of age. I was helped by my Grandmother and Grandfather, Mother, and my Aunt. They came from the old country Poland. It was all kinda Christianized but it was still there. As an adult I started to explore and went thru Wicca, Huna, Shinto, Druidism, Norse, Pow-wow, and nothing feels right. Right ? What is right. From my young childhood until I was 24 I was all on my own. And it was the best time - my hodge podge of magic, rituals, and the folklore worked the best for me. My current stuff is full of my hodge podge of things with a lot of Polish traditions of the old country, working alot with eggs which is kinda like Pysanky, Decorated eggs, but I use them from healings to curses.
Have you ever worked with Traditional Witchcraft?
I would have to say no, I never called it Traditional witchcraft, didn't know it had that name. It was just witchcraft to me, plain and simple. Thats how I consider what I do. I just did what I did, sometimes with simple tools like paper and pens, herbs, spices, incense, candles, oils, eggs, pendulum, cards, and what nots. The wand is no better than my finger and I have no use of a chalice. I like my besom though. I have gotten into my Polish background and started to search out Polish witchcraft and use what I have found and incorporated it into what I do now, its brings back memories of my grandparents, mom and aunt who taught me things as a child.
What does Traditional Witchcraft mean to you?
Trad Craft is a way of life - you feel it stiring as a young child, always hiding in
the background, you work with without knowing, always growing, soon you embrace it, maybe not knowing, no rules, only you, it is your life, your breath,
and it just who you are. Also check out what I said in the beginning of the forum, in the Starting the Traditional path.. it really says it for me.
How long have you worked with witchcraft in general?
I have actively been working with it since I was 12 turning 13 that summer. It was when my friends and neighbors branded me a witch.. so since they thought so, I decided that I would actually start doing real spells, hexes and curses came a little later. But I believed in myself.
What brought you to our site?
It was a longing to find others like myself. I was searching out a site or two that had actual witches communicating with each other, not one that would test you, but one that you could be yourself on. Be able to talk to each other about spell, hexes, curses, for instance having blood in a spell and not get flamed over it, like on many wiccan based sites, or those so spiritual love and light ones - thats just not me, so I googled and found this place..
What do you expect to get from this site, and what do you expect to contribute to this forum?
I want a place to chill out, to talk to others with the same basic beliefs and ideas I have, to learn and share my experiences in witchcraft and other areas too, like herbs for example. I place where I can be me, and to grow with no repercussions. This forum is a wonderful diverse group of people that are happy to give you direction, advise, give ya a swift kick, all in a good way.
Do you belong to any other online witchcraft sites?
No, not any witchcraft sites, Actually I don't belong to any other groups anymore.. I play with one other witch like myself now a days.
What are your strongest points in witchcraft?
I think my strongest is my hexes, and my use of eggs in all kinds of spells.
What are your weakest points in witchcraft?
My weakest point is hedge riding, not that good. I also have seen where I go in cycles in doing things, I kinda go dormant and then go hog wild for a while, its up and down.
