  • How familiar are you with witchcraft?
    I found Witchcraft (or rather Witchcraft found me...) about 20 years ago, but was practising without knowing or recognising that I was long before that..
  • Have you explored other paths?
    Many...but nothing resonates like the Craft.
  • Have you ever worked with Traditional Witchcraft?
    I have done a lot of reading and researched it. I'd like to learn more..
  • What does Traditional Witchcraft mean to you?
    It means the 'old ways' and not the 'trends' that seem to be 'all the rage' right now..
  • How long have you worked with witchcraft in general?
    20 years of practising all types but you never stop learning..
  • What brought you to our site?
    Intrigue..
  • What do you expect to get from this site, and what do you expect to contribute to this forum?
    I am always searching. Listening. Learning. Hopefully teaching as well along the way...
  • Do you belong to any other online witchcraft sites?
    No, I've looked at others but they are very Wicca orientated....
  • What are your strongest points in witchcraft?
    Quietly Listening...
  • What are your weakest points in witchcraft?
    Not practising enough as I would like, other pursuits getting in the way..

  1. I write a lot of notes in my books too, even the scrimped and saved for cherished ones - I think it just adds my personal energies to them (like marking them as my territory). I also have a book of magazine/newspaper clippings that I have found interesting and wanted to keep.
  2. This tribute is gorgeous and reminded me so much of the 'flame that was extinguished too soon' that was my Mum. I feel your pain - beautiful words xx
  3. Just a smidge of light entertainment for the upcoming Samhain: The day is wide and bright and real, but night is like the perfect meal, It makes me feel all full and wide, my magic does its work inside. The 'monsters' live inside the night, or so it's thought.... but that's not right. Real 'monsters' also live in day, but not like how the films portray. They prey on young, or old, or weak, and sex or drugs is what they seek. So next time someone sees the Witch, the Werewolf, Vampire... flip the switch. And spare a thought for us you might, the misjudged creatures of the night... _AAF9_
  4. I love the Eclipse of the Sun with Solar Flares. You've certainly inspired me, must get out my easel and start painting again. I recently moved to a place by the sea.....my favourite subject! Loving the Northern lights pictures too. You seem to have put an incredible amount of energy put into them. You can feel it x
  5. I agree. The fictional movies are pure escapism for me. A big bag of popcorn and a Coke Zero and I'm a happy bunny!
  6. My partner was always fascinated in my ghostly ramblings but he is very matter-of-fact and told me once: 'I'm not saying I don't believe that you see things, but until I see them I'll always be a skeptic'. So i respected his point of view and left it at that. Then one night he had picked me up from my workplace (I was working a late shift until 10pm) and we were driving home. It was a long quiet stretch of road and suddenly I got goosebumps - and almost simultaneously my partner screeched the car to a halt in the middle of the road. I was so busy checking to make sure there was no other traffic and catching my breath that I didn't realise how shocked he looked until he started driving again. I asked him what had happened, and he said 'there was a sudden blinding light that hurt my eyes for a few seconds and I couldn't see through it so I stopped the car for fear of driving off the road into something'. We got home safely and I forgot about the situation for a while, just putting it down to one of those nights. Then I was visiting with my brother (who also sees things) and we got talking about strange occurrences (as we so often do). He was telling me that he was driving along that same patch of road (this time going to work) and he had been the first on the scene to a motorcycle accident. My brother is a first-aider so he got out of his car and waited with the injured man until the ambulance arrived - but unfortunately the man died of his injuries. I asked my brother why had he never mentioned this before? He replied 'it was too traumatic and I didn't feel comfortable talking about it up until now'. I then asked him which part of the road had the accident occurred and he described the exact place where my partner had screeched to a halt. So I went home and told my partner. He has never questioned me seeing strange phenomena since..
  7. You would think I'm obsessed with vampires....I'm not! I quite like the films though. However, I'm not always so impressed by the way a lot of the vampire films portray Witches, but luckily this film doesn't portray any Witches, just down and dirty vampires. It's not glamorous, just raw and emotional.

  10. I used to have these dreams when I was a child, where I was running through forests with bare feet, with the wind at my back, up through winding hills, almost feeling the moist grass between my toes and smelling the night air....it was always night in my dreams. I've never tried to do any regression or past life hypnotherapy, but my dreams were so vivid.
  11. I'm an incense and candle junkie too! And gem stones/crystals. I know that there are some Trad Witches that don't subscribe to the use of accessories in their practising of the Craft, but sometimes it's nice to know that it's there if you need it. I have a wand - and I thanked the tree that I procured it from. But I haven't done a lot with it recently, apart from strip the bark from the wood. Somehow, with this pandemic always lurking in the background, time seems to move differently for me at the mo. One of these days I'll get around to putting a crystal on the end of it!
  12. Woah. Brings new and excruciating meaning to the phrase - 'ants in ya pants'......
  13. Two moles on my left leg, one looks like a nipple because they're both colourless. A triangular set of moles on my left arm that I can sketch a pentacle into. Amber/hazel eyes, and I've been told I've got 'gentle looking' eyes which is ironic because I am a dark and solitary Witch. (I just use it to lull others into a false sense of security ha ha!!). My brother and I also have the Witchy trait of having different coloured hair and eyes, he has light sandy blond hair with grey eyes and my hair is very dark (I dye it) and see above for the eyes - we look alike and get mistaken for twins and yet there's two years between us (he practises the Occult as well). And just knowing things, sensing when things happen...
  14. I know it sounds cliche, but I had a cat find his way into my life. He was very nervous of everybody else, but he would let me handle him and I made a huge fuss of him, gained his trust over time and eventually he would lie next to me while I was pathworking or appear while I was practising. He came into my life without ever being forced. But no one else....even my partner had a hard time trying to pet him, he gained some very sore scratches (my partner, not the cat). I came to look at him as a familiar and a pet. Our bond was so strong. I lost him to hyperthyroidism about four years ago, he suffered a massive heart attack after we tried medication from the vet (which only helped for a while). I was devastated. Our flesh and blood bond was broken, but I still feel him now. I regularly dream of him - I just wish it wasn't so painful. I don't know if I'll ever find that type of bond again in a living being, but we still have it in spirit.
