  1. I have never asked about this online before but after something extreme happened once again I figured it is time to find out what I'm dealing with. So, the story in short is as follows: I have been a bit different for as long as I can recall, attracted to what most people call darkness yet I don't see it quite that way. It feel normal yet as the years passed by me as a kid I understood that it sure was not normal at all. I was very extreme in my ways when young, very young, before my teens, I was basically looking for spirits, demons...and then something changed, and it was sudden and it was amazing, I should say "scary and horrible" but I did not, and still do not ,feel that way but I really want to figure out what this is. What I know is a word or name that sounds like "Ynix" and a shadow that seems like a horned being, not quite antlers but a large ︶ shape on the head. It takes a "offer" everytime it does something for me. And never a small one, it is a sacrifice and not something I decided, it just takes something. And it can do unspeakable things. Anyone know what it can be ? I have searched and thought about this for about 30 years now. Thank you so much in advance, I assure you, this is not crazy, it took a lot of pondering over if I should or should not ask to even think about posting here. I do not take drugs and do not have an illness that makes me see and experience something that isn't there. I had myself tested a few times over the years just to be certain. If nobody here have info maybe someone knows about a forum or person, FB group or any other serious suggestion to where or who could perhaps have an idea what's latched on to me for so long. At this point I see it as just another day as I am so used to it, but the last time something very extreme happened after I asked for it I started to look for answers.
  2. I have been into ancestry since I was about 8, that was the age when many questions needed an answer and my all things supernatural go-to person adviced me to look into my ancestry. She was incredible, I could call her anytime and she would explain everything to me. Only issue was that back then it was very hard, no internet. All I knew was what my mom told me, she had a paper, from my her father's mother, where she wrote about her history. I finally discovered where my gifts came from - my grandma on my father's side, and also Icelandic roots on my mom's side, way back. So I am Norwegian/Swedish with old Icelandic roots. Funny, as that had been my craft since the beginning. Traditional Scandinavian mixed with Icelandic craft. Let's just say that coincidence isn't a believable cause around here .
  3. NRK is the larges newspaper and TV channel in Norway and it still reports about witchcraft. Especially in the north where I live people still believe and fear cunning folk of all sorts. "Ganning" (or also "Ganding or "Gand" ), a Nordic form of "magic" (I have a bit of a issue with the word "magic") is still very much alive up here, even the biggest football team fear it, but..my point is, use Google translate and read about some of the recent articles about Nordic witchcraft here: https://www.nrk.no/sapmi/pasienter-er-redde-for-a-snakke-om-ganning-1.15012234 https://www.nrk.no/kultur/ganning---bare-overtro_-1.4261014 https://www.nrk.no/sapmi/xl/troen-pa-_djevelpakten_-1.14864591 https://www.nrk.no/sapmi/overgrepoffer-ble-truet-med-ganning-hvis-hun-fortalte-om-overgrepene-i-tysfjord-1.15013932 And if you are Scandinavian speaking, here is a podcast: https://radio.nrk.no/podkast/tett_paa/l_b70694c3-b296-4112-8694-c3b2962112a4
  4. I just discovered it was based on a book series but I bet they are better, that's usually the case. The series was recommended to me because of the herbs and witchcraft content, it is a entertaining series but the love scenes last forever and is utterly mushy. Not a fan of stereotype anything. I have finished season 1, with some trouble, but I enjoy historical drama with an eye for detail. I bet many here would enjoy the series.And as snow came back today my work in the garden will once again be put on hold.
  5. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3006802/ Just wanted to tip you all about this series. Just give it some time and you'll see why it fits in. Herbs and witchcraft, history and folklore 🌙
  6. I've been disappointed before and want to find the best books about the story of Lilith, and Lilith in general - have you read a good book about her ? Could you please recommend and tell about your fave Lilith book(s). Thank you :vhappywitch: I don't want to dig through a shelf of religious scriptures but a book just about her or something similar.
  7. This is such a love / hate relationship for me - I have connected with a solid small group of wonderful practitioners who are very talented and even though we share common ground we also have our own individual style. Howeverrrr...finding such gems is a pretty annoying experience on IG. If you search the most popular tags like witchesofinstagram you'll find a seemingly never ending stream of posers. And one of the things I highly dislike is posers - people who do not have the talent/interest etc. to actually become what they pretend to be. All they are able to do is take boring selfies and staged "rituals" as well as bragging photos of their "occult" books and "tools" etc. I have zero tolerance for this and block such insufferable nobodies if I have the time to do so. And then you have the usual attention seekers that add a bunch of people who they think might add them back so that they can appear popular/successful and if you don't add them back (something I don't unless I actually enjoy their posts) they unfollow. Wow..people never fail to misunderstand life. But, if you manage to crack the code - as in figure out the right hashtags you'll find some really fine people on there. Even though it is a mess to try use IG to spread info - very unfriendly to write long descriptions and messages - it is easy to connect with people you have something in common with. There are many good sides to IG, and many bad, but for now I find it worth while. I can't, and don't even want, to spend every day on social media but it is nice to have a place to go to connect with people of similar interest if you feel like it.
  8. I just had to reply to this old post as I saw Hemlock mentioned. This plant was one of the first I learned about through Norwegian Trolldom, witches ointments - of course - and I recall being in awe over the properties. I was much too young but luckily careful and I still have some foliage of the very first Hemlock that I picked for over 30 years ago. Many might argue that its power is long gone but it depends what you want to use it for. For very special occasions I use a little bit of what's left and it stil doesn't fail to deliver. I get all giddy and child-like thinking about those memories, how exciting it was to learn all about these forbidden plants *sigh*
  9. I've bought lots from them through the years and have always been very happy with everything. Fast shipping and good items - thumbs up !
  10. I tried to order a while back but nothing happened. Ended up with a refund from Paypal -- too bad because the selection was good.
  11. I got a message from my teacher from primary school a while back, she asked me if I remember how I used to pick thorns from the hedge and put them in the tip of my black gloves. Yes, I said - But what I didn't say was what they were ment for. I was trying them on to see if I could make poisonous thorns of them for self defense. I studied herbalism and witchcraft from very early on and had a few intense experiences from lack of control. Too much too soon. There really ought to be a Hogwarts for children like me :wasntme:
