  • How familiar are you with witchcraft?
    I have had an interest in witchcraft since i can remember, I was facinated by traditions and always asked why we do things, I remember asking my mum about why we throw salt over our left shoulder when i was very young and religiously doing it and looking behind me in the hope to catch the spirit!

    Witchraft is inside me, there is no escape! I practice rituals, spells, divination and i read! It is simply who I am.
  • Have you explored other paths?
    When i was 16 i fell upon the books of lewellyn and cunningham and was enchanted by what they wrote although it felt a little made up and dreamy. I took what i needed and discarded the books. I found a real interest in herbs and their properties.

    I believe there are many aspects to the powers that be, separated by personality types and energies etc but essentially all boil down to the femenist and masculine parts of one great power, nature!

    I believe by utilising different aspects of this powerthis helps to bring your needs to manifestation.
  • Have you ever worked with Traditional Witchcraft?
    Casting spells by the river or the sea for my needs and divining often.

    I met my husband through spellcraft and discovered he had a great knowledge about traditional magic and spellcraft. He is from Iran, and i have lapped up all his tales from his grandmothers about spells, mysths of simorgh, jinn, giants, deevs, snake magic, fae folk as well as traditional customs to dispell negativity and 'bad eyes' that his grandmothers developed. I have summoned jinn, khodams, fae and the like but I need more practice as my Farsi i think is a barrier as many of them work in farsi not english!

    Since having my little boy i have used spells to calm him, using crystals, herbs etc to cure him of ills.

    I am currently exploring more about protection, curses and hexes etc
  • What does Traditional Witchcraft mean to you?
    Traditional witchcraft is the age old practice of magic, be this divination, spellcraft, summoning of spirits or beings. It is about connecting with the world around you, being at one with nature, knowing it is where you are from, and where you are going.

    Traditional witchcraft is in your blood, it is powerful and does not go away no matter how much you try to live a 'normal' life!

    Knowledge is passed down from one generation to another, for me i had great instincts and sought out what i needed to know, then through my husbands family my knowledge of TW in Iran has greatly developed.
  • How long have you worked with witchcraft in general?
    I would say all my life. For example when i was younger, if i wanted something i would often write it on a leaf and place it in a stream knowing that if you ask you will get. I would look at signs in nature for an answer to something.
  • What brought you to our site?
    google!! And the thirst for knowledge.
  • What do you expect to get from this site, and what do you expect to contribute to this forum?
    I hope to get some support, i am not looking for spells, i am looking for discussions on how things can be acheived or done.

    I am entering a new phase, I can see my path has made a sharp turn! And i am a little unsure of myself on this seeminly new path. I am trying to get past the whole wiccan rede 3x3 teturn thingie, It always made so much sense to me, but slowly i am changing how i feel about it. This is the first time i have cast magic that will knowingly cause harm and although i know it must be done, and i indeed must do it I am interested in how others have coped with this knowledge.

    I do not know how much i will contribute at first, i would prefer to read rather than speak at present. I do however have a good knowldge about witchcraft in the middle east and would share what i know of this if the time is right.
  • Do you belong to any other online witchcraft sites?
    I have limited access now to the other trad witchcraft forum!
  • What are your strongest points in witchcraft?
    Instinct, i go with my heart and i think if you are in tune with your instincts you can go wherever you want.

    You need no tools to practice witchcraft you only need to know what you want, you must know what cause this will have and be prepared to face this consequence.
  • What are your weakest points in witchcraft?
    time! I find it hard to find the time to do as much as i want, Atash (my little one) is only 16 months, i work full time and time with my family is most precious to me.

    I need some support, a friendly face whom i can turn to when i feel a spell didn't go as well as it could have, or indeed when something amazing happens.

    ...Not neccessarily a teacher but someone i can bounce ideas off so to speak!
