About me

AWitch Alone . . . yet not.


blessedarethewitches

I thoroughly define myself as witch, a student of the Old Ways—the Old Religion if you will—a celebrant of nature, a child of the God and Goddess and an explorer of the ways of my ancestors. As I’ve stated on more than one occasion, I feel you need to know where you’ve been to know where you’re going.

I’ve been called a Zen Witch, a Green Witch, a Kitchen Witch and eclectic. I guess I’m all of those, as I’m a witch by what I like to call, an innate vocation. By that, I mean I enjoy studying the many different facets of all religions, and when I find something that resonates I refashion it to fit my own personal path.

It wasn’t anything I planned or just decided. And for a long time, it wasn’t anything of which I was even aware. It just always was. The Goddess called me to Her. Even as a child I did pagan/witchy things. I talked to the moon and adored Her as if She were my mother. I took notice and relished the changing of the seasons, chatted with animals and plants—even rocks and trees—all the while feeling quite certain within myself that this was the correct way to behave and believe. Even so, I chose not to reveal any of this to my family, nor would they have accepted it if I had.

In this space of time, I feel that I’m where I am on my path to continue studying, learning and to reiterate to myself the Old Ways by means of teaching others, so as to keep these practices alive and pass them on to those who would stop and learn. My strengths are my convictions in knowing what’s right and correct for myself and to follow my own heart, the ability to convey those beliefs in a positive manner, to be able to see the light that shines in all people and respect their viewpoints and principles for what they are—their own viewpoints and principles—and to know that we all have free choice in all situations as well as consequences for those choices.

Here is Webster’s definition of a witch.

Witch: noun-Date: before 12th century
1 : one that is credited with usually malignant supernatural powers; especially : a woman practicing usually black witchcraft often with the aid of a devil or familiar
2 : an ugly old woman
3 : a charming or alluring girl or woman
4 : a practitioner of Wicca

It’s interesting that Webster gives the most accurate definition last and the least correct first, in fact, the entire sequence seems to be backward. It’s essential to know that although nasty lies and rumors persist in running amuck,

Wiccans, Witches and Witchcraft have absolutely nothing to do with the Devil or Satanism!
