From the few resources I've found, I am aware it is a practice and not a religion, that it is a reconstruction of pre-Celtic British practices, and that no two Trad Crafters hold the exact same beliefs or practice in the same way.
Have you explored other paths?
I was raised in the Episcopal Church, and although I have nothing against it, I found it wasn't for me in the end. Like many people, I turned to Wicca; I found it was incredibly limiting and restrictive, for a group of people claiming to be more open and accepting than Christians.
Have you ever worked with Traditional Witchcraft?
I'm not 100% sure yet what you would consider to be Traditional Witchcraft; I've cast a few spells in my time, including sigils. To date, they have always been effective. Maybe this doesn't count, but in the past, I have silently wished things on people that have frequently manifested in the physical world.
What does Traditional Witchcraft mean to you?
To me, Traditional Witchcraft is connecting to nature, the spirits, and to an integral part of yourself. It means bringing out your innate abilities and creating what you desire. It could be through an actual spell, or it could be astral travel, meditation, or some other form of exploration. Or it could be as everyday as cooking or crafting something meaningful. Or even through deliberate thought.
How long have you worked with witchcraft in general?
Ever since I was a teenager-- when my spells started to work, I got kinda freaked out and took a hiatus from witchcraft. I went back to dabbling in my twenties. So 15-20 years, on and off.
What brought you to our site?
It's the only site I've found so far that doesn't seem fake or superficial. No neopagan fluff here.
What do you expect to get from this site, and what do you expect to contribute to this forum?
I hope to get ideas and inspiration as well as a little direction. I plan to contribute my own ideas, interpretations, and thoughts on witchcraft.
Do you belong to any other online witchcraft sites?
I've received articles and weekly updates from Blue Moon Manor. I used to belong to a Wiccan site, but I've long since unsubscribed.
What are your strongest points in witchcraft?
I think mine is the power behind my intent-- when I desire to manifest something, the full extent of my passion and life force goes behind it.
What are your weakest points in witchcraft?
My lack of knowledge, both regarding spells and resources.
