How familiar are you with witchcraft?
My first knowledge of witchcraft unfortunately came through the media in my early teenage years. Although not the best information, it peaked my interest enough that I began looking at books on witchcraft. Nothing particularly fit well at the time. I now know that I was looking at wiccan books and though they claimed to be the same as witchcraft i am starting to learn that witchcraft and wicca are two different things. What a relief.
The only thing that stuck many years ago was tarot reading. It was something I got a grasp of very quickly and still use today. I began reading up on wicca again recently and i found myself frustrated at the complexity of it all. it didn't feel natural and i had real problems with the use of deities. Though I am now understanding the meaning of deities in witchcraft. Very recently I've had the opportunity to look at my past more clearly and discovered much more of my 'truth'. I am starting to connect and define who I am better which is very empowering. Realising that I was connected to a path long before i knew it.
Have you explored other paths?
Brought up seventh day adventist till about the age of 7. Looked into witchcraft/wicca in my teens. My husband follows a buddhist philosophy so i've read up on that. Now feel that I am ready to embrace the traditional craft. Feels like home.
Have you ever worked with Traditional Witchcraft?
I have used intent, visualisation and some tools. Most successfully i've used mirrors for work i find most important. Helping people reflect on how they are behaving. somewhat like a slap in the face to make them wake up. Without realising it i have had contact with spirits but I'm still coming to terms with this. Its been happening since i was young but i have blocked a lot of this out. A lot of what has stopped me is being scared of succeeding. A common thread in my life. But i'm ready now.
What does Traditional Witchcraft mean to you?
I'm a big believer in natural flows of energy in the world and a balance. Energy that flows through us and that we do have the ability to physically and mentally enact change. Trad Craft to me a lot about my connection with these energies. Its my truth. Its so intrinsically part of me.
How long have you worked with witchcraft in general?
I have had an interest in witchcraft for over 20 yrs

What are your strongest points in witchcraft?
identifying when i am getting a message and paying attention to it. My relationship/bond with animals is getting stronger. Symbolism, connection with nature.
What are your weakest points in witchcraft?
my knowledge base is limited, just trying to go with what feels natural to begin with. Not sure if its a bad thing but i feel rather know.
