  • Interests
    Solitude, music, dreaming, drawing, peace, witchcraft, video games, fairies.
  • How familiar are you with witchcraft?
    I've spent a lot of time meditating on the Otherworld and I consider myself to be intermediate.
  • Have you explored other paths?
    I had a few experiences in my childhood and youth with Catholicism and with Wicca, but I've discovered that I'm not a religious person or a person of faith, I'm atheistic and skeptical by nature.
  • Have you ever worked with Traditional Witchcraft?
    I use creatively visualised places and people in trance to interface and work with deep aspects of nature arising from out of my self. I also dream magically all the time. I have begun to dream about my trances. My practices are very much about the chaotic subconscious imagination. I'm a hedge rider, and an admirer and friend of fairy folk.
  • What does Traditional Witchcraft mean to you?
    I think Traditional Witchcraft involves deeply personally experienced practices of thought and ritual in the context of an inherited body of spiritual or magical knowledge, perhaps gleaned through direct ancestors, or maybe more broadly from culture, folklore, and exchanging ideas with other witches.
  • How long have you worked with witchcraft in general?
    In a serious way, it has been since around the time my aunt died in 2014. I have been interested in witchcraft from a much earlier age but I went through many times of questioning and suppressing my interest. After my aunt died she visited me in a dream and I obtained a conviction that "reality" is not only what is objectively observable.
  • What brought you to our site?
    I felt lonely and wanted to talk to others about my mystical experiences.
  • What do you expect to get from this site, and what do you expect to contribute to this forum?
    I want to think and reflect, and to exchange thoughts and ideas with others here in ways that can mutually enrich our practices. It is obvious to me that there are very advanced witches here and maybe in that sense I should expect to obtain more than I can offer.
  • Do you belong to any other online witchcraft sites?
    No, only this one.
  • What are your strongest points in witchcraft?
    I'm very interested in dreaming as a witchcraft practice. I am a highly imaginative person and I can sometimes be perceptively analytical. I tend to get obsessed with some idea and follow it somewhere productive.
  • What are your weakest points in witchcraft?
    I'm not very studious. I'm happy to go with the flow of fairyland at whatever pace the fairies take me. I think I could achieve a lot more if I studied harder at my practices. But I have a lot of mundane obligations.
  • Additional Information.
    I'm trying to consolidate my life going forward, maybe like assembling a patchwork from scraps.

  2. Nice work and welcome. I like the look of that curly broomstick ❤️
  3. Sounds like a good idea @Onyx. ♡ Sometimes I dream of music and then I write the music from my dream and that is the BEST feeling.

  5. @Sagefire I think it's cool that different types of people get to experience these beautiful wands you make. I guess I aim to be respectfully critical of Wicca in general, I'm glad my critical inclination doesn't stop me from enjoying ideas that might be associated with it. I think the Wiccan practice of casting circles is kind of silly but then again I do it in my own way every day. I don't really have any physical objects or tools I use consistently, it's not practical for me at my home life. But I visualise different objects a lot and develop them in my mind. I sometimes use a wand a lot like a seeking stick or dowsing rod or lodestone, to find my way around my own mind. I think if you have a practice relationship with the kind of tool it can be a very personalised kind of practice and work for you really well. A while ago @Zombee was sharing with me some interesting ideas about wands drawing energy, I don't think I ever would have thought of anything like that.
  6. i love your wands Sagefire and Onyx. Do you use all of them? It's surprising that people would think wands are fluff, maybe that's just because their image is so saturated in popular culture because I think that they're one of those things that the more you think about them, the more you learn about how many different things they can do.

  8. I've got an old Penguin that says on the back "Shirley is a complex and highly rewarding work, dominated by Charlotte Bronte's imaginative grasp of what is common to all oppression: the denial of the world of feeling." I read the book when I was about 20 and I hardly remember it but I keep the copy because I have thought about that quote a lot. Who knows who wrote it, someone on the editorial team at Penguin I guess.

    Ancestry

    According to records and family memory, my more recent ancestors all came from around southern England, also Ireland and Wales. All of that was some generations ago, my most recent ancestor to come to this country was a great-grandfather. A few years ago I did some professional research volunteering for Indigenous people where I live, to do with Indigenous language place names and meanings. I got a much greater sense of meaning in this country, but also of my displacement, a sense that I do not "belong" here but that I "belong" in England or Wales somewhere. I experience my personal identity fundamentally as being part of a diaspora of that place, and more like an accidental tenant of this place (maybe even a little bit of an unwilling hostile invader). Because of colouring in some of my family members which is sometimes called "Black Irish" I believe that further back, some of my ancestors were Italian. (I love Italy too, as you can tell by my username I really get into stories of Italian mythology, and could potentially see myself living there... in my dreams.) But apart from that I don't really have any reason to believe that my ancestors come anywhere else except the UK. My appearance at least, is very typically Anglo-Celtic. I'm your basic English-looking man. It's exciting for me that my ancestors come from there. I've always been in love with english language and I have a degree in english(es), I would like to learn more languages of that place like Welsh or Cornish or Irish Gaelic. I've read "Ulysses" and I really relate to Joyce's idea of challenges to the Imperial English center, but I think that I am also a very English person. I like to read about places around there and looking at pictures of old yews and ancient art. I love imagining that some of my ancestors could have been really ancient British people, some of the first modern humans to live there, I like to imagine that they were living right among fairies. I relate very much to that place and stories of fairies. I'm getting to a point in my life where I live more with the fairies than with flesh and blood people.
  10. I do a lot of magical daydreaming and in my imaginary stories and wanderings I came across a panther in the imaginary places I spend my time in, and I don't know why but although it didn't make a lot of sense I "realised" the panther was a cu-sidhe. I was happy and I thought it was a good sign about my progress, but I tend to go with the flow of my practices rather than spending a lot of time codifying arrangements, so I continued to go on with my other magical preoccupations and didn't necessarily dwell on the appearance or meaning of the hound or my relationship to her. Recently I encountered the panther in a dream that had become problematic and confusing, she lead me over a wall out of the dream and back to waking. It was a great surprise! In conscious trance I talked to her about her name and we agreed on what name I would call her by. I'm interested to spend more time with her in my conscious imaginings and I wonder if I could "conjure" or "summon" her during more lucid dreams if we became more familiar with each other.
  11. My mother momentarily convinced me that there was a giant spider on my shoulder.
  12. You sound like a very empathic person, Beautiful that your Mum is around you!!!! <3
  13. Just a couple of other thoughts from overnight. I have a couple of toy soldiers from childhood that I enchanted to guard me and keep any uninvited or unwanted guests at bay, or at least warn me. They have their own minds to some extent but they're loyal and they don't slack off at their job. They're grateful for their being and they guard my world well. They are also my friends now and help me in surprising ways. I think in magic nothing is purely "good"? It may be mischievous or a trickster... doesnt mean it intends harm, that it doesn't want to teach or help, or that you won't part on good terms or whatever.
  14. Thanks for the feedback and also for adding your thoughts, agree with what you wrote.
