  • How familiar are you with witchcraft?
    I am just beginning to explore witchcraft and the many paths it can lead. I've read books on different paths as well as internet research. I'm still developing my own path.
  • Have you explored other paths?
    Wicca, eclectic, hedgewitchery, Stregharia, norse pagan, feri and probably a few others.
  • Have you ever worked with Traditional Witchcraft?
    No, I have not. I am just beginning to explore the many faces of witchcraft.
  • What does Traditional Witchcraft mean to you?
    To me it means a continuance of folk magic practices passed down without ties to formal religion or worship. I have never been impressed with any religion even though I was raised Catholic. Other words I would use for Traditional Witchcraft are ancestor work and nature centered.
  • How long have you worked with witchcraft in general?
    15 years.
  • What brought you to our site?
    An article sited on one of my Facebook pages which peaked my interest.
  • What do you expect to get from this site, and what do you expect to contribute to this forum?
    I would like to learn more about traditional witchcraft and get away from the Wiccan based info which is so prevalent in my readings. I don't know that I have much to contribute now, but would like to think one day I might have some insight that could advise/help others new to the craft.
  • Do you belong to any other online witchcraft sites?
  • What are your strongest points in witchcraft?
    I don't think that I have strong points as yet. I have had communications with ancestors through dreams and would like to learn more about it.
  • What are your weakest points in witchcraft?
    Well, as my journey is still in its early stages, my weak points are several. I'd like to become more familiar with herb lore, healing, and spell work.

  1. I definitely get visits from my sweet cats who have passed.
  2. A clear coat of paint will make it last even longer.
  3. Lucky you to have so much land. I have always wanted to have my own patch of earth. One day it will happen. Welcome back.
  4. Balefire, I too, for a long time, didn't refer to myself as a witch. I am always pleasantly surprised when I say something slightly 'witchy' that other people often ask if I am a witch. More times than not they also share that they are a witch as well. My circle has grown through this rather unusual path. In addition people who don't share my own views have always commented positively.
  5. I have been contemplating getting a tattoo for years. I have now settled on a few designs I like, but have yet to do it. As an aside, it took me 3 years to decide on a paint color for my living room. Then another 2 years to actually paint. I put a lot of time into the decision. What that says about me is up for debate. I know that a tattoo is permanent and I want it to reflect my decision.
  6. I lost my Mother to lung and brain cancer on March 9th. Her sister, my aunt in January and my cousin in February. I have never dealt with this level of grief and loss before.

      I just saw your post, I am so sorry to hear of your loss.  Too many to mourn, I cannot even imagine the pain you are going through.  It will get easier to cope with time.  Talk to them, it helps a little.  I'm sure they will hear you.

      I am so sorry for your loss. I’m always here if you need to talk. 💕

      Thank you. I do appreciate it. 

  7. Tarot of Marseille is my go to, but I have recently discovered the Deviant Moon deck.
  8. I've had numerous people comment on the color of my eyes. I can change the color of my eyes depending on eye shadow and color of my clothes. My eyes range in color from green, blue, gray and a color nobody can quite describe. My mother's eyes are green with quite a bit of yellow. I have been told to 'stop looking at me like that'. I honestly don't know what they mean, but many people have asked this of me. I think what happens is that I tend to stare intensely while thinking of just about anything. An ex of mine once told me I have alligator eyes. Still not quite sure what that means. I've seen alligators up close and don't see the resemblance. LOL. I have also been told that my laugh scares the crap out of people. Some even commenting it sounds evil. I suggest maybe they should think hard on why it sounds that way to them. Others have joked that my laughter is 'witchy'. How they define that is never quite clear. I'm good with all of it.
  9. Throughout my life I have had odd experiences. When I was 8 and asleep. I was pinched so hard that I yelled and woke up my mother. I have had recently departed people come to me in dreams within days of dying. The only exception was an uncle who was killed in Vietnam who came to me in a dream 30 years after his death. I have had dreams of an ex boyfriend being sick or getting hurt. He never got sick in real life. I would find out later that my dreams coincided with him being seriously ill or having an accident. I never get this type of dream ahead of time. It is only afterwards that I find out the timing was the same as the incident. I have had several occasions where I thought I was dreaming of a dark threatening figure in my room only to realize that I was awake. This was terrifying. I was so scared that I could barely move. If I even think about them I get freaked out.
  10. Duduk meditation. Shireen (witchpop). Tautumeitas. Omnia. Wardruna. Any Nordic inspired traditional music.
  11. I agree with you and have had a similar experience. From a young age I was aware that I was different in a good way. I too could concentrate and make things happen. I just didn't 'know' what it was. After a few years I began to do some research. The only direction (so it seemed) was towards Wicca. I had a friend who liked to dress up and play witch who was into Wicca. This all seemed really silly to me. As I dug deeper I began to realize that Wicca with all of its constructs was not for me or what I was seeking. I have since gotten rid of all the gadgetry and have undertaken the traditional path. I am still learning and will continue on this path.
  12. Following. I don't know much about the bracelets, so would be very interested in this topic.
