About melshuster

  • Birthday 01/02/1974


  • Gender
  • Location
    Tennessee, USA
  • Interests
    Reading, writing, learning and my grandbabies
  • How familiar are you with witchcraft?
    Somewhat familiar with traditional (or not so much) definitions and practices. My knowledge is more experience based and less involved in study.
  • Have you explored other paths?
    Yes. I have explored several paths, including xtianity. Theism doesn't make sense to me.
  • Have you ever worked with Traditional Witchcraft?
    Somewhat....I have been involved in websites and groups and practiced some of what was taught there. But it just did not seem genuine for me.
  • What does Traditional Witchcraft mean to you?
    TW, to me, is a path/craft/lifestyle as opposed to worship, rituals and such.
  • How long have you worked with witchcraft in general?
    20 years, give or take.
  • What brought you to our site?
    Web search for NON wiccan occult
  • What do you expect to get from this site, and what do you expect to contribute to this forum?
    I hope to learn from others who have experiences different from my own. My contribution would be along the same lines.
  • Do you belong to any other online witchcraft sites?
    Yes. Heritage Witchcraft Academy and "sister" sites. These have been the only legit sites I have come across.
    ***In reading other profiles I have been reminded of other online communities that I have joined at some point. However, seeing as I had forgotten them entirely until seeing them mentioned elsewhere, I am not convinced they are relevant at all.
  • What are your strongest points in witchcraft?
    I am an empath. I seem to have a knack for influencing people around me.
  • What are your weakest points in witchcraft?
    Perseverance in daily practice...
  • Additional Information.
    I have requested membership previously and have been denied. I would honestly like to be able to interact with true witches and learn from them and their experiences. If I must be rejected once again, please let me know why.

  1. I am looking on amazon.com and finding mapacho "roll incense" but very little in the way of a smoking tobacco (other than some very expensive cigars). Can someone tell me the difference between what is sold as smoking tobacco and what is sold as incense? And where is the best place to buy mapacho for smoking without having to buy something already rolled up into a cigar?
  2. IVY / VINE The Ivy was sacred to Osiris as well as to Dionysus. Vine and Ivy come next to each other at the turn of the year, and are jointly dedicated to resurrection. Presumably, this is because they are the only two trees that grow spirally. The Vine also symbolizes resurrection because its strength is preserved in the wine. MAGICKAL ASPECTS: (VINE) Faerie work, Joy, Exhilaration, Wrath, Rebirth. (IVY) Fidelity, Constancy, Love, Intoxication. I wonder if the type of ivy/vine is significant. For example, grape vine vs. kudzu......kudzu is everywhere around here.....lol
  3. Happy birthday to you !!!!

  4. Happy Birthday!!!

  5. I often see images in the "patterns" on walls, ceilings, upholstery, clouds....just about anywhere. But I am not looking for images. I am not making any effort to scry in any fashion. Should I make a note of these images and maybe evaluate for some meaning?
  6. Happy birthday!!!

  7. This is very interesting. As a witch, I have always considered myself very "non" superstitious, if for no other reason than the simple fact that xtianity is steeped in the stuff. But I suppose superstitions permeate most every belief system in some form or another..... :huh:
  8. hahaha....my sisters tell me I am just weird....I love Khan Academy, Coursera and Udemy. I have a wall lined with math and algebra books. I used to love being around people. Lately, however, I prefer my alone time. People generally bother me.
  9. I have tried several methods. For me, the most effective scrying technique is to go into a light-proof room and stare wide eyed into the darkness. This eliminates all outside distractions to which I am seriously prone.....
