Working with Energy

  Quite often in Witchcraft many people talk about working with energy but explanations are often vague. I wonder if it is because it is something that you can not see and is difficult for most to define. From my perspective, it is like air. You can’t see it so it is invisible, it isn’t concrete so you can’t grab it or pick it up, It is generally silent so you can’t really hear it with your ears and it doesn’t have a distinctive smell. Or Does it? Energy like air can be felt with your senses if you...

The Importance of Ancestry

For this post, I would like to step inside my own opinions and beliefs. I feel there are many different ways of thinking about the importance of ancestry. Some say it isn’t at all important and some say it is very important. I believe there is a lot of power in connecting to one’s own ancestry. I am not referring to being a hereditary witch or about specific traditions of witchcraft being passed down from one generation to the next. I am referring to genetic lineage. Of course, I don’t believe that one ONLY receives power from one’s own...

The Call Of The Patron

Some people experience the call of the patron god or goddess. I can not stress enough that this is a very personal experience.

I recently discovered that there are people who believe you can’t use magick for personal gain. Until recently, I have only heard of that on the television show “Charmed”. Although I have to say I am a big fan of the show and I find it completely fun and entertaining, a lot of the basic principles of the show are just that, entertainment. The Charmed ones don’t really exist and magick doesn’t really work that way. There are no lightning bolts flying from fingertips, spontaneous explosions or people appearing or disappearing in real life. If any of those things...

A Solitary Witch in a Christian Family

For many, it is difficult to be a solitary witch, especially if you don’t have any other experienced witches to talk to about it. When I was new to witchcraft, the first thing I did was explore the concept with lots of books. Life was so hectic and I didn’t have any support to explore the subject. In fact, it was the opposite. My boyfriend at the time tried to push me in the opposite direction although he claimed his path was of the Pagan variety and had been calling me a “Natural Witch” for years. I found I...
