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, oneiromancy. Hedge riding, talking to the fairy folk. Creative visualisation, magical daydreaming.
What are your weakest points in witchcraft?
Astrology, numerology, and similar systems.
My life has been a bit messy and I'm trying to consolidate my life going forward, maybe like assembling a patchwork from scraps.
