  • How familiar are you with witchcraft?
    I have been a practicing witch for five years. During those years I have studied a number of paths including Alexandrian, Cornish, Wiccan, and Gardnerian. I love to collect information on the history of witchcraft around the world.

    In addition I am a solitary practitioner, but I love sharing information and learning about the craft online.
  • Have you explored other paths?
    I have studied a number of paths including Alexandrian, Cornish, Chaos, Wiccan, and Gardnerian. Although I have explored those paths, I am certainly not Wiccan in my practice or path.
  • Have you ever worked with Traditional Witchcraft?
    I have some experience with traditional witchcraft, I work with elements from nature, spirits, and hedge magic. However, I am still learning and hope to add new skills to my practice.
  • What does Traditional Witchcraft mean to you?
    Traditional Witchcraft means following the path of the old ones. Looking for old lore, using chants, charms, rituals and spells from documented and historical sources. My definition of Traditional Witchcraft is not static and I am sure it will change over time.
  • How long have you worked with witchcraft in general?
    I have worked with general witchcraft for over five years. However, I studied general occult and pagan paths for two years before I was serious about my practice.
  • What brought you to our site?
    I found this site by searching for traditional witchcraft source on Google. Afterwards I started reading the forum and finally decided that I want to contribute to the community.
  • What do you expect to get from this site, and what do you expect to contribute to this forum?
    I hope to further my understanding of Traditional Witchcraft and make some friends with fellow practitioners. I also hope that I can add to the knowledge of this forum from my own experiences in Witchcraft and magic.
  • Do you belong to any other online witchcraft sites?
    No, I do not belong to any other online witchcraft sites. I am very excited to become part of this community.
  • What are your strongest points in witchcraft?
    The strongest points of my witchcraft is my ability to meditate and visualize my intentions when working a specific ritual or charm.
  • What are your weakest points in witchcraft?
    My weakest point of my witchcraft is finding specific components for some of my charms and incense recipes. In addition, I think I have a lot of learning to do in regards to invocation and communicating with spirits.

    Now I think my weakest points is finding information regarding traditional paths. There's a lot of crap out there on the web.
  1. Thanks for the insight Sagefire, its helpful to have some fresh perspectives!
  2. I could use some friendly advice regarding my current path. 
 
 A little background:
 
 I was raised in a protestant church, parents took me "religiously" every week. As a pre-teenager I was exposed to the occult through my own curiosity and fiction. I practiced sporadically during those years as most teenagers do living in a religious family that was entirely set against anything related to the occult. That practice was mostly nature focused (not Wicca). 
 
 Fast forward a few decades and I have mostly fell out of practice, but still retaining the role of the "armchair practitioner" (insert sarcasm). I have since returned to the christian church, Roman Catholic to be specific. I thought that it would this decision would be the best. I completed the RICA. However, through most of the rites there are quite a few including an minor exorcism, I did not experience anything no enlightenment, holy spirit etc. even when the priest performed a laying of hands and anointing.
 
 I don't know if my previous workings in magic had anything to do with my experiences (or lack there of) in the church so far, but it has not lived up to my expectation. I can't seem to leave the occult and magic (traditional path) alone. The church would consider me damned I sure for my practice. I have a lot of cognitive dissonance over this issue.
 
 Does anyone attend a christian church and still continue a solitary practice? Is it easy? Hard? 

  3. I am always conflicted in buying kindle books. They are so much cheaper, but you don't have a physical book.
  4. Here's one that a friend of my owned: Wicca Spellcraft For Men by Aj Drew Wicca. I'm sure it turned a lot of potential pagans way from the craft.
  5. Oh my I remember that book as well. Didn't buy it though :P
  6. Which Hogwarts House Do You Belong In? You got: Gryffindor You have a heart of a lion. You never give up, never back down and give everything 100%. Good things happen to you because you fight for them. You stand up for yourself and for your friends because you believe in what is right. Your energy is magnetic and makes you a natural leader.
  7. <hr /> Very cool mix, I especially like the piece by Lisa Gerrard.
  8. Right now Sava and Emian. Always on the look out for new bands so I thought I would give the thread a Bump! :witch_bounce:
  9. Completely agree, as usual the writers have done very little research on magic. A show like this needs good consultants with a good background in the history and magic. Most viewers want all of the flashy stuff...
  10. Thanks for the answer WhiteRaven, this makes much more sense now. So you were referring to the entity's gender. :)
  11. That's interesting WhiteRaven, I have never felt a particular gender to the energy of a thunderstorm. Could you be more give me some more detail? Thanks!
  12. IMO there's always a lot of energy "up for grabs" during a good thunder storm. You can work with it if you take initiative, however don't get struck by lightening :P
  13. I just started Azoetia by Chumbley. Definitely thought provoking...
  14. That's really intersting RachelLiz, have you been to the graveyard yourself?
