5. I practice witchcraft because it’s as much a part of me as breathing. It’s my therapy as well; I could be in the shittiest mood, but 30 minutes of going through the motions makes me feel right as rain.
8. Sometimes, when I’m too lazy (gasp! yes it’s true) to create a whole ritual. Othertimes when I feel like I have a greater connection just by lighting a candle and maybe some incense and saying a prayer. Sometimes it’s not about who you’re talking to or how you’re doing it, it’s about just getting the words out there — creating the energy and putting it out there thereby creating a strong, instantaneous connection to…whatever/whoever.
14. I do. I honor my dead. I feel like anytime I create something and incorporate them into it, I’m honoring them in the highest regard.
17. I have been practicing since I was 9-10 years old, so….ugh, 15-16 years. I’m fucking old.
First, I'd like to say that I love your blog. Second: 1, 15, 20!
first, I’d like to say AHHH! Thank you! second:
1. I havent had to use any, ever…but I cant say I would be against it if a situation was serious enough to warrant it. I’m not scared of the “darker” side, it’s as much a part of me as the “lighter” side is.
15. I’m not for it, I think it changes the whole energy. If someone comes to you for help, you’re supposed to give for the joy of giving. I’m also of the opinion that by charging money for services, it has added fuel to the proverbial fire in terms of witchcraft stereotyping. On the other hand, I understand that our materials arent cheap and if someone one comes to you needing help I dont think I would be above asking for money to cover the materials (if they more than I could afford on my own). Though, I wouldnt charge money with the intent to make a profit.
20. I dont think it’s real cool of people to do that. I would understand if your personalities didnt vibe, but to exclude someone for the sake of being exclusive…not cool bro. Everyone’s gotta start somewhere.
“Witchcraft … is a spiritual path. You walk it for nourishment of the soul, to commune with the life force of the universe, and to thereby better know your own life.”—Christopher Penczak (via wiccanwayoflife)
