How familiar are you with witchcraft?
I'd like to think that I have a good knowledge of witchcraft but that I am always learning new ideas that I haven't explored before into the many different "shoots" of witchcraft
Have you explored other paths?
I was brought up by a spiritualist mother who had many of her ideals in the witchcraft area but was more spiritualist and when i was 18 i studied it further and found my calling was in witchcraft.
Have you ever worked with Traditional Witchcraft?
Now that I have a better understanding of TW I have been working this way most of my life :D I've never liked the rules and restrictions that the wiccan books out there have imposed, nor have i felt the need to gather all the tools that they say you require for simple spell work. I like to work simply and with what's around me as well as taking time to gather ingredients and do complex work when i feel the need but not be restricted by certain 'steps' in order to acheive my goal.
I'd rather just sit and do the spell than take time to draw a circle, then call the quarters etc.....it's a long drawn out process that i feel i have no need of, my end results are just as efficient because i'm putting more of me into it.
What does Traditional Witchcraft mean to you?
Traditional witchcraft means to me a getting back to your roots, communing with nature and celebrating life and the divine in all things. It also means to me being part of a community with other like minded people who share ideas and thoughts and sharing these same themes with generations to come and to hopefully help the nasty stigma that has surrounded witchcraft for so long.
It also conjures up a homely feeling of being part of a family and being welcome :)
How long have you worked with witchcraft in general?
pretty much all my life without really knowing it. My mother would always challenge my views and she was always so non conforming and she taught me a lot about believing is seeing, not the other way around.
I would also say that i delved more heavily into finding out more about witchcraft and forming my own place about 10 years ago.
What brought you to our site?
I was just getting so frustrated with all the other 'fluffies' on the other forums i was on, my views were constantly put down and if i had to hear how i was 'lost' and someone would light a candle for me for merely challenging someone else's nasty viewpoint one more time - i was going to chop some heads! So i used google and found here - best thing i ever did!
What do you expect to get from this site, and what do you expect to contribute to this forum?
A place where my knowledge and ideas are welcome and also a place where i can learn from others because i don't believe that you ever stop learning, share new ideas and hopefully meet some new friends.
Do you belong to any other online witchcraft sites?
What are your strongest points in witchcraft?
My empathic abilities, divination, meditation and grounding - but i'm always learning new skills
Energy manipulation seems to be a new strength that i have discovered lately. I find that I am able to draw and use energy a lot easier and better than I have over the years.
What are your weakest points in witchcraft?
divination readings for others, working with tools
