About Amber

  • Birthday 11/15/1967

Converted

  • Location
    Kent, UK
  • Interests
    Painting, photography, tarot, my dogs, reading, writing, dancing, spending time in nature
  • How familiar are you with witchcraft?
    Very familiar (of sorts!). I have had an interest in witchcraft since childhood and was raised in an open minded family, where my grandfather was a natural medium and my parents were Spiritualists.
  • Have you explored other paths?
    In my early 30's I began seriously read/study what I 'thought' was witchcraft - meaning Wicca. I was initiated into a coven after one year and realised that as time went on, this was not the right path for me. The concept of Wicca didn't make sense in many respects. However, a friend who also left the coven at the same time, was very close to a 'traditional witch' and we spoke often about traditional witchcraft. It made much more sense to me in many ways.

    I left the coven for various reasons, but mainly because it made me unhappy and seemed to be consumed with ego/ceremony and reading vast scripts of ritual which took away the 'magic' for me. I felt cheated, there was no 'energy' - just lots of boozing and learning lines!

    For the last 5 years, I have simply been by myself, becoming aware of nature properly and felt somewhat disconnected - I know for sure that I wouldn't go back to working in a Wicca system, but have found myself feeling lonely and would love to speak to others who are likeminded, who worship nature, connect with spirit.

    I am a trained aromatherapist and healer, who now is a full time student, studying art and photography.
  • Have you ever worked with Traditional Witchcraft?
    No, I haven't worked - unless you mean by casting magick that feels intuitive rather than by long scripted rituals. I've never worked alongside or trained with a 'trad' witch - although would have loved to!
  • What does Traditional Witchcraft mean to you?
    It means a connection to nature and spirit which is respectful. It means to work magic if and when necessary and be responsible for your actions, whether you have worked magic, or made a decision in your every day life.
  • How long have you worked with witchcraft in general?
    I would say 10 years - although as previously mentioned this was in Wicca for about 3 years.
  • What brought you to our site?
    I googled Traditional Witchcraft because although by its nature, traditional work is kept to families, I reasoned that there MUST be groups out there!
  • What do you expect to get from this site, and what do you expect to contribute to this forum?
    I want to learn more, be able to be friends with others and help out with whatever knowledge I may have.

    I do really miss being able to actually chat/write to people with similar interests and beliefs. I think that's vital for growth.
  • Do you belong to any other online witchcraft sites?
    No - apart from a traditional witchcraft site on Facebook that I joined today.
  • What are your strongest points in witchcraft?
    I love being creative, writing, visualising and meditating. I feel I have a good connection with spirit and nature.
  • What are your weakest points in witchcraft?
    Not being consistent when being alone all the time and not sharing ideas and networking with others who are likeminded. It's very hard to keep feeling connected when your life is so heavily weighted with all the 'every day stuff!'
  • Additional Information.
    I'm a peace loving hippy on the surface, I'm all for love and forgiveness. Until someone hurts those I love and care for. Then, the wild, screeching woman from the depths of the 'cavern of depravity' errupts, spitting blood and poison. It's not often though... most of the time, when I walk by, birds whistle and flowers bob their heads. :D LOL!

  1. Thanks for that wonderful review on here for the Cornish Witchcraft book.. I've been pondering as to whether I should buy it and now I have! Thought I'd treat myself as the end of my exams are drawing near :grin_witch:

     

    Hope you're having a good day - and the weather is lovely in Hampshire! It's gorgeous here (for a change!)

  2. Hey Rosie... good to see you online.. hope you had a good bank holiday! xxx

  3. I love poppets... and plan to use them more. There's something great about having a shape and form to use. :wickedwitch:
  4. I am fine thanks. you know the usual one bit goes good and is balanced with the bad - can't complain though.

     

    Did my stall last week it was really funny I tried to get pics of some of the outfits - i.e size 22 upwards in bright yellow knee high socks short black skirt and a tight yellow t shirt- nearly wet myself - got to love teenagers they're always good for a laughxx

  7. No problem, thanks for accepting!

  8. Thanks for adding me as a friend DP!

  9. I'm glad this thread has started... I've never read anything fiction regarding witches, apart from Witch Child, mentioned above. I shall have to have a look at some of these that have been mentioned.
  10. Awesome, I look forward to reading it!

  11. Hi Patrima... I don't see why not! :D

  12. Hi Amber- your dissertation sounds extremely interesting. Any chance I could read it when you are done, happy with it, and have done your defense? (I did my grad studies in Art History instead of Fine Arts...)

  13. I can only speak personally... but have tattoos on my wrist, the back of my neck, my upper back and my lower back. I'd say my lower back hurt the least.:banana:
