  • How familiar are you with witchcraft?
    I have always been interested in witchcraft since childhood, I started officially practicing 2 years ago. Since that time I have been digesting everything I can about witchcraft.
  • Have you explored other paths?
    Yes, prior to beginning my practice with witchcraft I followed a shamanic path and I still do. My ultimate goal is to forge a path that borrows from both shamanism and witchcraft. Both have a lot in common and i believe they draw from the same source. I am very interested in Mexican witchcraft, they really blur the lines between shaman and witch!
  • Have you ever worked with Traditional Witchcraft?
    I am sure some of the practices I have engaged in have a lot in common with traditional witchcraft. I do not call upon deities but prefer to work with spirits of nature that I have seen or felt in vision or in nature. I call them my spirits or guardians. I have 4 or 5 strong spirits I normally call upon. I do honor the 4 directions and their connection to the elements. I see the elements and directions manifest around me in everyday life. I don't cast a circle but I do offer tobacco to each direction and element to begin each working. I have successfully worked many spells with positive results, which encourages me even more to continue to learn.
  • What does Traditional Witchcraft mean to you?
    To me it means forging your own path in direct connection with the spirits and being guided in an intuitive way rather than book learning and copying others rituals and spells. This is exactly why I am attracted to traditional witchcraft.
  • How long have you worked with witchcraft in general?
    Witchcraft 2 or 3 years, before that I walked (and still do) an intuitive shamanic path for about 10 years.
  • What brought you to our site?
    The desire for community and other witches to share my ideas with and also in order to learn more about witchcraft.
  • What do you expect to get from this site, and what do you expect to contribute to this forum?
    I hope to make connections with other witches, I would like to learn the ways in which others practice that it might make my own practice stronger. Wouldn't mind learning some juicy spells either :).
    I believe I also have a lot to contribute. Through my experience with shamanism I have learned a great deal about using plants to heal and journey. I have experience with many hallucinogenic plants and have knowledge of how to use them properly in ritual for spiritual growth not recreational use. I know there are many varying attitudes on the use of plants or drugs in witchcraft but I do feel strongly that for some who are inclined to their use entheogenic plants have a lot to teach. I have been called an encyclopedia of herbal knowledge. I would be happy to share it when welcome and appropriate.
  • Do you belong to any other online witchcraft sites?
    I do not, I have recently been searching for one though and browsed through several. I like the idea of traditional witchcraft as opposed to being Wiccan, so I decided this was the one to sign up for! I sincerely hope you grant me membership, I will at all times be respectful.
  • What are your strongest points in witchcraft?
    To not only do things mechanically but to understand and use the mechanisms at work beneath the surface of spells and rituals. To learn intuitively. My spells seem to be very successful. Good at journeying to receive answers and guidance from the spirits.
  • What are your weakest points in witchcraft?
    Because my practice is intuitive I feel like perhaps my path sometimes can lack clear direction and focus. Also due to lack of total knowledge I worry that when working spells I overlook things that could come back to bite me in the ass
  1. Yeah lifelong commitement is a really big deal, definetly no harm in not jumping right at it. I think you should be with someone for years before doing anything like that! I speak from experience lol
  2. I watched it. Nothing spectacular compared to the last episode, but still overall something i will definetly continue to watch. I cant wait till harvey becomes a witch hunter and they are pitted against eachonther lol
  3. What was the sudden turn of events? if you dont want to share I understand, but i often think in a relationship, eventually trying circumstances always happen, so its something you must be willing to accept sometimes, instead of just turn away, Then again i dont know the circumstances, im sure you know best but wanted to throw it out there sometimes it is worth it to stick it out
  4. I still really love your northern lights painting, amazing the colors create the vibe for me! looks pro!
  5. Your just getting back into the "flow" of what the universe wants for you and what you should be doing! no worries its natural to feel better when you are more closely aligned with source ;)
  6. so dark..... it sucks your soul right up!
  7. And if structure and pattern are useful to you then dont be afraid to work with them. You could take certain things you learned in your previous practice, and do away with the theology and beliefs surrounding it, and use the systems you already know as tools and dont be afraid to modify them as you see fit. A big part of the traditional craft from my understanding would be listening to intuition, inner guidance, and of course messages recieved from the spirits and or unseen forces. This goes hand in hand with forging your own path! THat said i agree it can be immensly helpful to have some information and practices to extract knowledge from. For that were all mostly in the same boat. researching forums blogs books having conversations with people etc. The most important thing i think is to listen to the call of the spirits and to get down to business and feel the power. if you dont feel the power or see affirmations, try other things till your in the right flow
  8. I dont have the jackolantern on me and it may have decayed by now (ill check and post pic if i can) but i did carve a pumpkin with my daughter. A dragon in front of the full moon. (she loves dragons we love to hunt for them in the woods) and it was a great bonding experience so cute!!
  9. Im currently watching it sometimes on netflix. I find it to be fun and enjoyable to watch, after all im a sucker for anything witchy. I also dont like the whole satanic association. That witches must sign their name in the dark lords book, but still i find parts of it enjoyable and will continue to watch it.
  10. I have been known to be interested in the occult and shamanism for years. what they dont know is im a full on spell casting witch! and no one needs to know either, that is my advantage i will keep to myself... I have discussed it only with my best friend who is a shamanic practitioner and generally very helpful and supportive of my path My ex wife knew, and had a habit of bursting in on me during times of ritual, even when she was asleep, i would go off and she would somehow wake up and find me, just give me a dissaproving look and walk off. not good mojo about it from her. Sometimes she was interested and other times thought it was bad. She comes from a highly christianised household and her father is always telling us to find jesus lol. throughout our relationship i never once casted a spell on her, and am very careful to cast spells on people but rather prefer to cast spells that improve myself. That said one time i got into a bit of an affair like relationship (not sexual intercourse but everything else) (deeply regret this action) with this girl who was singing with my band. she was also interested in witchcraft, and i discussed withougt much detail the fact that I am a witch. Things went sour when she began to interfere with relationship with wife, and cause all kinds of angry and jelous feelings. I had to banish her presence from my life. I did a pretty hardcore ritual for this. nothing hexing against her, but just to remove her presence and all communication from my life. It worked, no kidding 1 week later she actually hitched a ride out of town and has been gone ever since. fast forward 1 year.... Until my wife left, then despite my better judgement, i actually reached out to her again. she came back to town to visit, but our metting did not go well lol.... wonder if some of the lingering effects of the spell had anything to do with it. it was ackward and she left after a few hours instead of staying the weekend as planned. but her feelings on the matter matter not, im on my own path now! sorry for all the unrelated to topic stuff. just wanting to explain myself to you witches
  11. Is it bad if i actually do have a bunch of skulls and bones everywhere? :unsure:
  12. Loving your art. My favorite is definetly how the northern lights began. just awesome!
