  • How familiar are you with witchcraft?
    I can't say I'm an expert witch. I mainly gathered tidbits from here and there, mainly when the situation calls for it. Therefore I'm better at spellcraft but much weaker on herbalism, since I usually solved problems by the former but have practical difficulties using the latter.
  • Have you explored other paths?
    I have explored, and am still on a psycho-spiritual path which has little to none to do with witchcraft. However, I'm fascinated by how tribulations dissolve before it, like a dream awaken.<br /><br />Oh and like many Oriental witches (if you call us this), I've dabbled in Taoist rituals . . . but that's not really Witchcraft, right?
  • Have you ever worked with Traditional Witchcraft?
    Yes, I have worked with Traditional Witchcraft especially in terms of ancestral work. I have been working with my ancestors since I picked up Trad Witch. It is surprisingly good for me, since worshiping ancestors is a highly common local practice, I don't need to hide at all and have an abundance of guidance.
  • What does Traditional Witchcraft mean to you?
    It means myself. The pivot around which I resolve in the world. The centre which I stay at while navigating the world in a ship of my own making. The root which I fall and return to.
  • How long have you worked with witchcraft in general?
    Nine years. However, I have been a lazy wiccan before I finally decided that it didn't click with me and discovered Trad Witch.
  • What brought you to our site?
    One day I was searching the Net for some information about witchcraft. And boom! This site was the first in my google search.
  • What do you expect to get from this site, and what do you expect to contribute to this forum?
    I feel I can contribute to the site by bringing information on Eastern traditions and how diaspora witches are doing.<br /><br />I hope to find support and a sense of community on this site.
  • Do you belong to any other online witchcraft sites?
    No.
  • What are your strongest points in witchcraft?
    My strongest point in witchcraft now is spellcraft, simply by dint of my practice. That said, it's just comparatively speaking . . .
  • What are your weakest points in witchcraft?
    Herbalism is chief among my weaknesses. It is a highly professional practice here in the form of Chinese medicine. I, though, am so bad at it that I don't even know how to make herbal tea that parents prepare on regular basis . . . Time to learn!

  1. Some inexpensive ways of finding jobs that I've found useful: 1. Pray a novena to St. Anthony for a job. You can find a lot of prayers online by googling novena St Anthony. Spread his name after you get a job. Alternatively, buy him a single white lily to state your request, and a banquet of lilies after it's completed. 2. Sigils. Make a sigil for an interview, And then another for success in that interview. 3. Buy a taper and stab nine nails into it to mark it into nine sessions. Burn one session a night. Buy a new candle if it burns out. Repeat until you find a job. 4. I bought the Get a Job oil from Quadrivium Supplies and found it extremely powerful. Highly recommended if you can afford it.
  2. Yes yes yes! Breath is crucial in my craft. If i can't breathe properly everything suffers. I cleanse myself with breaths and even activate sigils with them too. I also use my exhalation to influence others and have achieved satisfying results.
  3. Ah, I know where you're coming from. And yes, I read all three types of cards and I consider what I do fortunate telling, too. I ask some spirits to help when I read, but rather than help me "see into the future" I ask them to help me see what is lost to the querent and me, i.e. the blind spots. Perhaps I put too much focus on the present in my fortune telling. After all, I think the revelation of the blind spots is sublime and transcendental, maybe even better than simply knowing the future. And yes, I consider what I do merely reading the damn cards.
  4. I remember distinctly that in my 5th grade school picnic we went to a country park which was actually a hill. Some of my schoolmates (not the same class but the same grade) took away some barks on the ground and a student hurt his knee. I went "Oops we angered the spirits here and we should give them something." Some classmates and I buried potato chips as a compensation and prayed for forgiveness lol
  5. Recently I've been leaning more and more towards the chaotic side of things. However, I still have an aversion to anything ceremonial. Not that I think they are bad, just that I don't think it suits me. After all, the reason that I adopt more chaotic methods is they can answer my needs and the difficulties circumstances pose. That said, I still think I'm a trad witch at heart.
  6. Laughing my heads off lol The last point "Skulls." has a meme/verbal tic aura with it. Skulls. (Edited for the last two lines.)
  7. It has a sequence? Gosh what did I miss? Anyway I enjoyed the first one (not so much for the spin-off about Annabelle), so I think I will go and see the second.
  8. I don't know if it's a practice but I'm into stories, in all medium. I read a lot (and write sometimes). I enjoy hearing stories and telling stories. And yeah I play video games with good stories (or poetic experience) in them.
  9. I feel you. Every word you said. Since I'm also on a similar stage I probably don't have any worthwhile things to say. Lately, however, I started researching folklore, especially those with witchy elements in them, like shapelifting, plant spirit, and, of course, witches. They may not provide any practical advice, but the aesthetics alone reminded me why I chose this path, instead of others. Just my 2 cents.
  10. Agreed! And I especially love your reference to Jesus lol coz I think there are two theological schools of thoughts: one maintain that Jesus is the Son of God descended from Heaven, while the other Jesus was originally an ordinary person like us but trained himself enough to ascend to Heaven. I heard that the Church doesn't like the later school much since it hinders centralization of power. C. S. Lewis reportedly once wrote essays to rebuke that school as well, but I have yet to read his works. OK, before I go too far, what I meant was, if some deities became deities purely based on their own work and deeds, do they still need our worship? Ummmm, don't know. Note that this kind of deities is not restricted to Christianity. I also do believe that some deities are like that . . . created and strengthened by human beings. However, I have also heard about pure nature deities, usually gods or guardians of mountains or lakes or other sacred places, who not only do not need human worship, but hate any kind of human activity in their territory as well.
  11. I have similar changes in self-perception, but the most obvious one is that I no longer think I'm nuts when I sense things lol So in a nutshell, more confident? As for others, so far I haven't heard any report that I have changed or things. Could be because I haven't practiced enough lol. But I'm also the type of persons who are used to hiding themselves so . . . .
