  • How familiar are you with witchcraft?
    I'm quite familiar with witchcraft after reading my parents 'Man Myth and Magic' encyclopaedias at a young age then reading various books whilst at school. My first girlfriend practised witchcraft and was surprised when I wasn't shocked. I've met witches since then from different backgrounds including Romany and wiccan.
  • Have you explored other paths?
    I've never believed in gods so religion on a whole has never appealed to me. I come from a non-religious family anyway (both myself and my sister were never christened). I joined a couple of what I thought were witch related forums (turned out they were wiccan) purely out of interest and self discovery but I never felt at ease as they went against my personal beliefs. Also I can't stand all the blessed be, merry meet etc. I just can't see myself saying it, it's not natural.
    many years ago whilst looking through the occult section of a small bookshop in Robin Hoods Bay, the owner approached me and asked me if I would be interested in attending a Shamanism group - it appealed to me but was just too far away to attend which was a real shame.
  • Have you ever worked with Traditional Witchcraft?
    I've practised candle magic using a mirror (scrying?) which was shown to me by a Romany friend from my college days. I have also studied and used tarot cards for divination for myself and for others with varying success. I have had premonitions/recurring dreams of events which have later happened to me, some months in advance and one was near instantaneous which actually saved me from physical harm (if needs be I can go into detail if required). I used to use dream symbolism in my photography when studying for my degree and when I could I used to visit an ancient woodland and sit and meditate, often I'd talk to what I felt were spirits in the trees before carrying on with my photo projects (which usually turned out quite well).
  • What does Traditional Witchcraft mean to you?
    Part of the traditional craft to me is being able to do what you desire as long as it's for a higher good, the conscious act of focusing energy and will to achieve a desired outcome. None of this 3 fold stuff. If some one does something bad to you or someone close then you can reciprocate as long as it's justifiable and by using whatever power you feel is right and not feel guilt afterwards.
    Traditional craft is also being more in tune with nature as a whole. I was taught in Engineering Science at Tech College that energy doesn't disappear, it merely changes form I feel this is true in life also.
  • How long have you worked with witchcraft in general?
    I must have worked with witchcraft for about twenty years, probably not even realising it most of the time
  • What brought you to our site?
    I found this site after googling 'traditional witchcraft' after reading a description on trad craft on another forum. Before that I was asking the wrong questions and ending up on 'fluffy' sites.
  • What do you expect to get from this site, and what do you expect to contribute to this forum?
    I'd like to be able to get a better understanding of traditional witchcraft, I'm not after a teaching guide as I know this is not a teaching site and feel everything comes from within.
    I'd hope I can share my experiences with others and help if needs be with anything I've learnt over the years.
  • Do you belong to any other online witchcraft sites?
    No, I did belong to a few wiccan ones out of curiosity but that doesn't count and I no longer visit them.
  • What are your strongest points in witchcraft?
    I have an inquisitive nature and feel an affinity with my surroundings. I try to respect everyone and everything and am always willing to learn.
    I also tend to meditate on my actions I find it unwise to rush into things.
  • What are your weakest points in witchcraft?
    Lack of experience in magical practices as I am still a beginner on the practical side of things.

  1. I think my daughter would like that - not so much her mum though..
  2. How many grand high witches can you have? Do we set up a council :lol:
  3. Serendipity, was only thinking about this subject a few days ago. Nicely timed bumpage :)
  4. Probably buy it on kindle version, read his other books and love them. I find Peter's style is easy and enjoyable to read.
  5. What a year.. Not the only one CG Have to agree, there are things I need to put in my past New begginings and all that they bring forth, certainly a time growth and strength. Happy Winter Solstice and Yuletide greetings to all
  6. Was flicking through YouTube for EVH stuff (guitars mainly) and stopped to listen to this..
  7. Some excellent tips so far, great topic :) Can't really add much I'm afraid except maybe carry a couple of freezer bags/small plastic bags with you when out and about in case you pick anything up that may be poisonous/staining etc. that way you can put it in your pocket without touching it or muckying your clothing. You really don't want to be handling amanitas then go for a burger..
  8. My name isn't actually pronounced as it looks lol, found that out at school when we had a teacher from Wales for a while. When my kids were born I wanted to give my daughter an Irish name but my other half wanted something that she could spell (spoilsport)
  9. I've sometimes wondered whether to use my given birth name here or stick with my username (which I've had for a long time). My name isn't religious so to me is neutral in nature except for it being Welsh. One day I might change it but it makes no difference to who I am.
