    Cooking for my family and just being here in case they need me
  • How familiar are you with witchcraft?
    Very. It is in my family. They are all gone now, I am all that is left, that knows about witchcraft in my family, except for my son, but I remember some things. And I used to practice before my parents died. I have gotten away from it all since then, but I am very lonely and looking for a place to call home. I mean I am looking for like friends. Since my Mom died it seems I have no one to relate to. Not a pity party, it just is what it is, you know? I live in a small town.
  • Have you explored other paths?
    Christianity, namely, many years ago. I probably know more about that religion then Christians do. lol.. Which make me sick. But, again, it is what it is. I've looked into Hinduism and Budism, but I feel if you were not born into that culture, you will not be "part" of it. I really don't belong anywhere. I am one of those people who just does not fit. But one thing has alway been a constant in my life. And that is what we know today as "witchcraft". It is on both sides of my family coin, and it is what I most identify with today. It is the only thing that feels right to me.
  • Have you ever worked with Traditional Witchcraft?
    Yes. I know that it is real. I have done some things that I am not proud of. But, I know that it is the one thing that has proven to me to be real. Actually, I'm wrong. What I have done was to protect my children, and those things have worked. And I am proud of that. When I take actions into my own hands, and it works, I am elated. Even if it hurts someone who has hurt someone I love. But, yes, I have worked with Tradtional Witchcraft. And I know that it is not something to be taken lightly. Some things I will not do again. But , if necessary, some thing I will. A cost I am willing to take.
  • What does Traditional Witchcraft mean to you?
    Reality. As close to Spirit as you can get. I do not look at witchcraft as a religion or a gift. I look at it as an inspiration and a way of life. It is a way of tapping into a realm of Spirit that we are not otherwise privy to, unless we are truly mediums, which most of us are not. It is also a way of absorbing Love into a volatile situation. A way of bringing about peace, when allowed to enter. And when there is no peace to found, only justice, then that is what it is, and justice will be served on a hearty platter.
  • How long have you worked with witchcraft in general?
    Well, this could go back to my childhood, when I used to watch my grandparents, or it could be when my mom and I used to do things together. But I will go with me personally. When I was little, I used to do spells (it was what I knew). I was attacked by a boy when I was in the third grade, he was in the fifth grade. A few years later, I learned that he was in football. I did a "spell" on him that he would break his leg. Well, I'm not saying my "spell" had anything to do with it, but many years later, he was playing in the NFL and not one, but both! of his knees were blown out and his football days were over! One of those things, you know. Might not have had anything to do with me, but just maybe it did. I celebrated, anyway, and remembered the day I hexed him. I just wished he hadn't had so many good years in between. Sometimes the universe doesn't work in our time.
  • What brought you to our site?
    I was really just looking for somewhere that I thought maybe I could talk to people. I am a member on my husband's football forum, but I am an outcast, honestly, being a female and not that much into football, lol go figure, and I was just hoping that I could find some folks that I could talk to. Other than nursing, I really don't know anything else but witchcraft.
  • What do you expect to get from this site, and what do you expect to contribute to this forum?
    I am hoping to develop a camaraderie with some people, maybe talk about some real life things, from the perspective of people who think like I do. I am not some yahoo, or some little girl who watches tv and thinks it would be fun to be "Wiccan". I am a 43 year old woman who has lived 10 lives. Or so it feels like. I expect to contribute as much to this forum as I get out of it. Which hopefully will be great conversation and advice, as long as it is reality, and not a bunch of this hokey smiley fantasy crap that I have seen on other sites.
  • Do you belong to any other online witchcraft sites?
    Not at this time. Years ago, I did. I do not consider myself part of those sites any longer. One of them shut down and the other one just got so "out there" and became, quite honestly, vulgar, that I didn't want to be part of it anymore. There was one other one, but the activity was so minimal that it wasn't worth my effort to post anything.
  • What are your strongest points in witchcraft?
    Keeping it real. Just keeping real. Knowing that anything I send out there might happen and it might not. One thing I have noticed, though, especially in recent years, is that the good things don't seem to happen. Only the bad things. I am one of those, you see. I am not opposed to bad things, when they are truly warranted. Perhaps I am just that kind of witch. I don't want to believe that though. I know that good things I cast Can happen, I just haven't seen it in a while.
  • What are your weakest points in witchcraft?
    Staying true to my nature. Just staying in the beat with it all. I truly can use the term "many moons ago". Many moons will go by between any works that I do. Actually, since my Mom died, I have lost track of the Moon's cycle, which I hate! Every month I say I'm gonna keep up with it, but every month I let it go. I need some inspiration. I have got to get back on track or I will never heal. I need to have some "like" friends. Someone to inspire me to get back into the flow in this universe. Someone like me. I am of no religion, so I have no one to turn to. There it is. This is me. I'm old and I'm tired. But I would love to make friends and help out where I can.

  1. Just stopping by to say Hi !

    Regards,

  2. Yes, they are. When the rhythm and the beat flow through your veins and your body, you sort of lose yourself. It can be very trance-like if you let it. ;)

  3. I'd love to try belly dancing. I admire professional dancers, contemprary and ballet. I didn't feel particularly graceful when I danced ballet. The more earthy dance forms seems to suit my body better. True, it's self expression and it's got the spiritual side too, transe states are quite easily achived through dance.

  4. Cool. Sounds very exotic and exciting! I was into Ballet when I was younger, taught dance to little girls, and mentored en pointe for a while. It was a great experience. As I got into my 30's, I got more into Oriental Dance, belly dancing, which was not only fun, but super sexy, too! Very hot! lol. Dance is a wonderful way to express yourself and clear your mind, too.

  5. Oh, I like forro too, it's a Brazilian couple's dance. Very joyful!

  6. I've dated dancers and choreographers in the past but always thought I could not move. The release for me was the Brazilian community. Yes, I can move even though I sucked at ballet when I was a kid! Afro Brazilian and samba is what I do actively. The Afro Brazilian is really an invocation of old African gods mixed up with ingenious stuff. I’d like to do some pure African too.

  7. Thanks, Betula, for adding me to your friend list, it's nice to add you to mine, as well. And hi to ya, too. What type of dance are you interested in?

  8. Checked out your profile, hello from another ugly duckling, if you get what I mean! Luckily, I found as I moved away from my home town, there are many outcasts out there and we eventually find each other! I'll add you as a friend, you're not alone.

  9. Went golfing with my husband and son today. I don't golf, just look at the beautiful trees, water, and wildlife. It's my game. I am coming back into my saddle.;)

      Heels down in them stirrups, hands light on the reins, you'll be just fine, and sit up straight and tall, no slouching when in the saddle, girlie.

  10. Just wanted to say hello to anyone who may look at my profile. Still getting to know my way around the site, still discovering things, as well. Like this feature. Is it okay to leave a comment on your own profile? lol

  11. To the original question, no we do not share the same beliefs. He believes in nothing now, but didn't always feel this way, before he just didn't give it any thought at all. Literally. And for years now, he has believed that you become nothing when you die. But lately, he admits that he may be beginning to believe in at least residual hauntings and also maybe in reincarnation, which he says he hopes is not true, because he does not want to come back to this world. He knows what I do, but does not care. I think he may think it is kind of cute, maybe a little sexy, and probably a whole lot of crazy, but he is cool with it, I guess. And he listens to me rattle on about this or that, concerning my beliefs and way of life. Now, I have not really done anything physical with spells or works for a while, as I've mentioned elsewhere. But, he does know of the one time last year that I attempted to "help" him with a "problem" at his job (the problem has a name, btw). It didn't work all the way, probably because I was out of sorts and out of practice, and going into it cold, with nothing but my anger fueling me. It did work partly, though, and the "problem" was nearly caught in his bad ways. So, once I clear my mind and get back into my rhythm, I will be revisiting this work with gusto and applying my skill (and I know that it will take more than one day's work, because this problem is firmly rooted at the jobsite, and will require much weeding out). And the "problem" will be solved. And I will have no qualms in telling my husband about it. As for my kids, I have one that believes and used to practice with me. The other is just here. lol. Doesn't care one way or the other, but chooses not to participate. Because of where we live, however, we have a rule at our house. "What goes at home stays at home." And this applies to everything, not just witchcraft or beliefs. Sometimes it is better to leave things unsaid in the public realms. It's not that we are ashamed, it's just that we don't want no trouble.
  12. I am more of a fiction reader. I do love the occasional nonfiction, but usually only if it involves a murder mystery. I love documentaries, as well. I'm not much into "how to" books, or teaching books, although I do have a fair share in my library that I have read in the past. But I am not into that at the moment, I am into entertainment novels. I am currently reading "Phantom Evil", by Heather Graham. It is a paranormal suspense novel. I just started it, so I don't know how it's gonna go, but it seems to be good so far. It is about a haunted house in New Orleans, that has some evil action involved. I will be back with an update on how good it was. I did just finish a book I loved, called "The Priest's Graveyard", by Ted Dekker. It was completely deranged, from beginning to end, and I loved it. lol. It's about good vs. evil, sanity vs. insanity, justice vs. murder, and how all of those things can collide inside the mind. It all gets twisted up, due to life circumstances. It shows how something that is bad can be considered good, if it fits your agenda, your own form of justice. Something I can relate to; not in this extreme form, but justice is as justice does, and it lies clearly in the eyes of the beholder. It was a great book, a fantastic read, and I give it 4 out of 5 stars.
  13. I love Ghost Adventurers! They are the most entertaining bunch on tv to me. They do have a frat boy style, though, that is an excellent way to put it. It makes them appear juvenile and unprofessional at times, but it adds to their charm, as well. I do think Zak is narcissistic, and it always seems like he has to be the center of attention. Like if someone else starts feeling something, he totally steals it from them and claims he is feeling it, too, then he makes a huge show of it, so the other guy won't get the camera notice. My favorite is Aaron. He is a big ole scared sweetie. lol. Like a little boy. I love the way he goes "...dude.." when he's scared, he sort of sucks in his breath. It's cute. But they do have the best investigation spots. My favorite was Poveglia Island. That place is wicked!! The Italian man that showed it to them pre-investigation made me laugh. He told them he was not going in that one building, they would have to go in by themselves. He was very calm, but you could tell he wanted to leave. The husband and wife team that join them sometimes are good at what they do, and I admire their skills, though they could probably be a little less on the trashy side. They always sort of look like they partied too hard the night before, they look like they could use a shower or something. But it my favorite ghost hunting show. I used to love Ghost Hunters, but after watching the crazy bunch from Adventurers, their investigations are just boring to me. I do love Steve, though. But the show is not the same anymore, and it just seems like none of them really want to be there. I feel they have been pressured by the producers to go in directions they didn't want to go in, and that they really just want to move on, but are stuck in a contract and can't. Grant is leaving apparently, so I guess I am at least partly right, but I don't really know why he is leaving, so... There is tension that is undeniable and they can not mask it. I used to watch Paranormal State, and occasionally I'll catch a rerun or two. But I agree that it does seem like a thinly veiled ad for Catholicism. I've never been able to tell if the show is reality or if it is just a fictional program. But it is still entertaining, either way. When they get to parts where the "exorcisms" take place, that is my cue to bail and switch the tv over to the WeatherChannel or something. lol
