  • How familiar are you with witchcraft?
    I have been dreading answering this question. As a result, I have delayed signing up for several months. Even though I have been working with it for about 5 years I still feel as though as though I have barely explored the tip of the iceberg.
  • Have you explored other paths?
    By saying explore you mean learning about and not practising, then yes. I like to have a general understanding of a wide variety of belief systems. As far as practising, my introduction to magic, outside of dabbling as a clueless teenager came in the form of, for lack of a better term, ceremonial eclectic paganism. It put me on the path, but left me longing for something more earthy and natural feeling. That led me to wicca, but it didn't jive with my belief of "deity" being a universal energy. Then of course, looking into the history, well...
  • Have you ever worked with Traditional Witchcraft?
    I may be overcomplicating this question, I have a tendency to do that. I would have to say that a lot of things I have always done in my day to day life before I ever had a label to put to it, could be considered traditional witchcraft. Things like spirit work and divination are fairly new to me within this last year, and I only started ancestral work in the last few months having been a foster child for all intents and purposes, I needed to work on personal growth before I started on that path.
  • What does Traditional Witchcraft mean to you?
    For me, it is about practices that I naturally gravitate towards when no label exists. Things that I naturally do without thinking about it. It's about the things that stir up interest create a desire for me to delve into further research. It's about who I am and what my heart tells me is true after taking a personal inventory when not trying to fit into someone else's mold or trying to fit my beliefs into someone else's ideas.
  • How long have you worked with witchcraft in general?
    The day I actually started getting serious about practicing instead of sitting and overanalyzing things in my mind was February 27 2011.
  • What brought you to our site?
    I was doing research into 1734 tradition.
  • What do you expect to get from this site, and what do you expect to contribute to this forum?
    I have already gotten quite a bit out of the site as I have been reading on the forum for a decent handful of months. I have received a lot of inspiration on ideas to further my research.

    I don't know how much I truly have to contribute. I love to discuss and debate ideas and philosophies, although I am probably lacking in the area of knowledge that comes from personal experience.
  • Do you belong to any other online witchcraft sites?
    Not really. There is a wiccan website that I am technically a member of, but I have never posted. I do occasionally find the site useful for information on working with herbs and other natural remedies.
  • What are your strongest points in witchcraft?
    My husband would say it was my fondness for research and healing. Personally, I would say that the area I feel the most proficient and comfortable in, would be dream work, such as lucid dreaming, dream interpretation. I have strong visualization skills and a vivid imagination that lends its self well to specific tasks.
  • What are your weakest points in witchcraft?
    Questioning my senses instead of trusting in them when it comes to sensing different energies and such. Being hesitant to explore different things without researching them to death first.

  1. This is exactly what this humbug needed! My kind of holiday music indeed!
  2. Shame, I can't see it. 404 error. I love working with polymer clay, but I learned from experience that even with sand, polymer clay is a no go for for incense burners.
  3. I am so sorry about your dog, have you found him? If not I hope he comes home safe and sound quickly. Mercury is in retrograde right now and in my experience I have found VOC always has a impact on my spells going wrong. I avoid doing spell word during VOC moon after a nasty mishap last year. However, your attitude towards your new town is probably a factor. I understand moving away from an environment that you feel connected too into one you don't. My husband calls me a mountain snob because I am biased towards the mountains I was raised in. Now I am in a dessert environment. Beauty can be found in any landscape. Even in a dirty city. Keep trying to connect with the land. Pick up litter, or find other ways to show that you care about the land. Work from within to find something to appreciate in your new environment.
  4. I am not recommending anything just to be clear, but milk thistle is used for liver problems. I can tell you that my husband successfully got rid of his gall stones using applied kinesiology and lot's and lots of lemon juice in warm water. You can research it and come to your own conclusions. We have found it useful but that is just our experience.
  5. Those books were game changers for me. Like you I skipped past a lot of basicis too and so somethings just wweren't coming together.
  6. I think we share the same beliefs for the most part. Sometimes, I find it very difficult to pinpoint my husbands exact beliefs because there are some things that are private to him. He is very supportive of my craft and will get involved when I ask, but he also has his own practices. I learn far from his facial expressions what I call his "head nods of knowing" than I do his words. I think he is more knowledge, while I am more action.
  7. You made it farther than I did Duchess. Do I dare go back and look? In my experience people who love to spout those lines turn out to be sociopaths. Well, this introvert is off to go do something unauthentic like read a book.

    O- Blood

    I am A+ but my mother was O-. I know there was a reaction when I was born as my mother kept a previous pregnancy secret. For all the talk about the reaction, the denial was strong. I love the willful medical ignorance I have green eyes but they don't match. One eye has the yellow star around the iris, the other has a triangle shape brown heterochromia above the pupil. It is getting lighter as I get older and is more yellow now. The both hare more bluish towards the out ring. When I cry my eyes get more of a sea green.
  9. I love this thread! Perfume bottles for my oils. Tea bags for my herbs that I am unlikely to find in that area. Powders could go in travel size baby powered bottles. I can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with.
  10. It all depends who it is. My husband knows and is very supportive and join me in workings if I ask, but he tends to be more knowledge and less practice these days. I met my best friend at a metaphysical shop.There are a handful of people in my apartment complex that know because we recognized similar paths in each other. Then of course, people in my local pagan community. I don't go around advertising, but I am not super closeted either. The majority of people don't know. The person I want to tell the most is probably the one person I will never tell. It would wreck their world. Although, it is so tempting though to say, "I appreciate all the time you spend praying for my immortal soul, but I am everything you feared I would become, so please stop asking me what church I am attending, the answer isn't going to change." No one would benefit from it.
  11. I am struggling without having the large garden I have been used too. Even though I am in an apartment I am making the most out of my balcony space. Already planted is garlic, onion, calendula, amaranth, chamomile and lemon balm. Next is lettuces, kale, broccoli, zucchini, peas and cabbage. I have a strawberry hanging planter and a thing for growing tomatoes upside down, but I have to ask my landlord about that first. It snowed last week and I had to cover everything, so I have been hesitant about planting.
  12. I love my hair and it is a source of pride. I think feeling good about it, no matter how you keep your hair is going to give you more magical oomph than what ever length you keep it.
  13. That is great, tonsillitis is hard as a child, but a real nightmare as an adult. Manuka honey is a favorite of mine.
  14. Good point! My thinking was limited to very short spurts but I didn't specify that, which I should have. I was completely unaware that it was something to be avoided for people with seizures.
