  • How familiar are you with witchcraft?
    Fairly familiar, though there are serious gaps in my knowledge on certain things. I a hoping to fill those in as time goes by.
  • Have you explored other paths?
    I was raised in a fundamentalist Christian household. I left that at 21. I briefly toyed with atheism and Wicca. Very briefly. However, I came over to the witchy side of things pretty quickly.
  • Have you ever worked with Traditional Witchcraft?
    Yes, I tend to work spells and rituals using the typical tools of Traditional Witchcraft, especially herbs, stones, and oils.
  • What does Traditional Witchcraft mean to you?
    Basically, I think of Traditional Witchcraft as the practice of dancing with the seen and unseen. I think of it as a deeper way of engaging with life.
  • How long have you worked with witchcraft in general?
    I have considered myself a (non-wiccan) witch for about nine or ten years, though my practice had foundered for several years. I am just now starting to make a concerted effort again to move my practice forward.
  • What brought you to our site?
    Seeking fellowship and more learned thoughts than mine.
  • What do you expect to get from this site, and what do you expect to contribute to this forum?
    I hope to have a place to bounce ideas off of those who have far more experience than I do. I have enough of a background, that I believe I can give thoughtful helpful in certain areas, especially for those newer to the Craft.
  • Do you belong to any other online witchcraft sites?
  • What are your strongest points in witchcraft?
    I am generally able to trance easily.
  • What are your weakest points in witchcraft?
    I have many, but probably communication with the dead.
  1. While I have not gone ghost-hunting myself, I have had far too many experiences and I appear to unfortunately be a medium. I do not enjoy it. "Seeing" for me is mind's eye for the most part. I get a lot of sensations that tell me what I need to know, and sometimes I get auditory communication as well. I think there are a pretty wide variety of spirits that have made themselves known to me. Some are maybe the dead. Mostly what I come across seem to be either local spirits or traveling spirits, along with a handful of nasty beasties. As for first responders, I suspect many have weird experiences. In fact, I currently live across from a quite old building that is being renovated as apartments. I cannot tell you how often fire trucks have been called there during the night. There's never been anything as far as I can tell, and based on the first responders' demeanor, they also know there is nothing there. I'm pretty sure the construction crews have really pissed off the locals. Can't say I blame them either.
  2. Solanaceae, that's what I was wondering. I wasn't sure whether it was in the poisonous category or not. I will be putting it off for a while for myself since I'm still nursing, but this is exactly the kind of information I was looking for. I like the burning or sleeping with mugwort to start. Thank you for that. FT, WOW! This information is amazing. Thank you! I feel like I can make some judgement calls on dosage and duration once I'm ready to start experimenting. And never the EO. Honestly, with little kids around, I'd be afraid to even have the EO in the house. I forgot bay laurel! It's been crucial in my work for the past couple of years.

    I don't specifically do aeromancy, but I pick up images in random places regularly. I have ended up feeling that we are being given messages that only we can interpret, which may be why it's so difficult to find information. Working on intuition in general may go a long way to making it easier to interpret the images we are given. I don't know. Just my random, kind of sleepy thoughts.
  4. I do like to work with herbs in my work and have a lot of favorites. Lavender and rose are probably my top choices though. I've found them to be extremely versatile, for me.
  5. I love this idea. Can you tell me how you went about making the mugwort cold infusion? Also, is there a safety limit on consuming mugwort? I've just recently got some mugwort and am wanting to carefully and respectfully experiment with it.
  6. OMFG I cannot stop laughing. :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: I'm pretty sure doing the FUCK OFF SPACE EGG spell would actually make me feel better about my life. LOL!
  7. I have had music come to me in those states. Definitely not silly in my book.
  8. I had something along those lines, but not with a video. It was a reddit thread I read all the way through but shouldn't have. I had to do some of the most intensive banishing I've ever had to do. It was a very ugly presence. The members on this forum actually did a lot to help me get rid of it.

    Yuletide Divination

    Interesting about the spiders too. In the past year and a half, spiders have been a bad omen for me too, which is interesting because I'm not particularly an arachnophobe, and I typically leave spiders alone to do their own thing. They have been something entirely different for me lately though.

    Yuletide Divination

    I have never done yuletide divination, but I like this idea and may try to do it next year. Hopefully I will have a place to burn a yule log of my own. As for your xmas eve divination...I'm going to guess you two are the only ones who will be able to divine that. I'm not getting anything right off the bat, but I feel like if there is anything there, it will jump out at you if you sit with it during meditation or similar?
  11. I have definitely had things go missing. When we have a consistent issue, we figure the "beasties" need a present. We will usually set something out for the house wights (how we view them), and our missing stuff will show back up and/or things will stop disappearing on us. Your experiences are particularly striking and obvious though. At least the house spirit is helping you out and making the ornery one give things back. LOL!
  12. Is it possible you don't want to believe what you are reading and as a result are just not understanding what you are seeing? That probably sounds harsh, but I bring it up because this is very much what happened to me a year and a half ago. I'm still reaping the consequences of my obtuseness. Alternatively, if it was me, I would take a little break and maybe come back and try a different form of divination? Or even a different deck if you find one that speaks to you.
  13. There you go. Autumn Moon has it down. Thank you for the clarification and knowledge! Your explanation makes way more sense than what I was talking about.
  14. Definitely need to consider what kind of cough you have, but honestly I think you should consider going to the doctor at this point. You do NOT want to be walking around with bronchitis or pneumonia. While you get that appointment in order, you could try inhaling steaming water with a towel over your head. You could also add eucalyptus oil to that water right before steaming, but make sure you keep your eyes closed while you do so. What exactly are your symptoms?
