First off, let me say how much the POTUS  genuinely makes me want to curl up under a rock and never want to face humanity again – but at the same time makes me think..HEY Maybe I am actually qualified for jobs I’m really not!! Go for it!! All jokes aside, the cheesy peach needs to get impeached.

While scrolling through the news feed on Facebook, I was shocked at the numerous ‘Witches Gathering to Put a Spell on Trump’ thing…. Ok..I understand wanting to do good (I’m Wiccan, f.f.s… I believe in causing harm to none and helping others).. but I see soooo much damage going on! Here’s some points I’d like to bring up:

  1. With the amount of energy – it’s hella potent at the moment- swirling around us, manifesting…do we –really– want to send out negative energy into the universe by focusing on him? A binding spell is in the grey, so to speak. Binding spells can go very wrong, very fast! The karma threefold law comes in effect plenty of times with this kind of spell. Instead , we should take advantage of positive energy by putting a protection spell on the universe and its inhabitants….no negative energy possible repercussions!
  2. How does it make us witches look? For real. We spent sooooo long trying to not look so wild in society in hopes to end the witch hunts,etc. That we’re going to fall back into those times where I will have to go back into the damn broom closet for my own safety. Once again – show them we use our magick for good! Not Bad that can snap back from binding.
  3. Being Wiccan and abiding by the rede and rule of 3, it really makes me wonder my fellow Wiccan friends…they do realize that some of the spell goes against our rede/beliefs…..right?
  4. Let’s stop putting so much negative out! You can’t fight fire with fire! Let’s instead drop some cool a.f. chill water over it and watch how much power we truly can take on.

Anyways…let me know your views on the matter! Blessed Be xx

After recently coming out of the broom closet myself after 5 years, I had to come across quite the challenge of the reactions of those around me.

Sometimes you will come across others in your life who will openly accept you for you when you come out as Wiccan, then there will also be the ones who are ignorant towards the matter. 

Luckily, My family I live with accepted me right away. My boyfriend accepted me. My best friends accepted me. Everyone pretty much did except for the die-hard bible pushers around me and two in the family.

Did it hurt to have someone in your family look at you as if you were less than them and their religious beliefs and think it was ‘just a phase’ and ‘oh, you’re not one of them are you?’ Yep it did. Quite a lot, actually. And you know what, too? Yes. Yes I am one of them. I am a natural ‘witch’ who uses my gifts and knowledge in natural healing to help those around me. I’m a good person. I respect others who are different than me and still love them unconditionally. Their belief doesn’t make them any more or any less of a person.

I was also told by said family member that my grandmother who passed away (Blessed be your soul Nanny E, I miss you with all my heart xx ) would not approve of me because apparently she contacted my other grandmother and said so. NO. My Nan loved me for me. She supported me and was there for me when no one else would. She never judged me when I came to her and told her what I saw. From the start she could see that I did have gifts of the sixth sense but still loved me and never judged me. Yes, she was Catholic, but she had respect for me when I was first into Wicca. She helped me and got me different books. She loved me for me. I can sense her energy and I even have consulted other mediums if she is proud of who I’ve become and they all say that she is and that I’m forming fine. THAT is what matters to me. 

Instead of yelling and lowering my maturity level down to bashing her religion, I instead gave some links of information to my family member and calmly explained what Wicca is. I know in my heart I am not evil. Sadly, some of the things  I see her church people do completely appall me. How can you go into a place and wear fake smiles with fake attitudes towards your fellow ‘friends’ then go back home with your little ‘clique’ and then talk smack about them? THAT is NOT family.  Respect and love each other. 

For those of you who have came out of the broom closet or are about to, here are some helpful links I found that I like to use to give to people who aren’t too nice or judgemental towards you.

Blessed be and don’t let them put out your shine. Glow, baby, glow.

This article came to me after doing a little bit of my own research. I know I follow Wicca for my religion, but never did I know I fell under a category/type. Really, I should have. Look at Christianity having many certain sub-groups such as Anglican, Catholic, Baptist,etc. Same as with Wicca. Recently I have found out that I am part of the NeoWiccans, and that I am an Eclectic Wiccan. 

What is NeoWicca? Well here are the differences between the old movement and the new movement.

 

 

NeoWicca/Spirituality is:

•Substance instead of Form

•Personal Experiences vs Dogma

•Heart felt, soul-led, creative expression vs Scripts and Rote rcitation

•Sharing power equally vs High Priest/ess or Hierarchical

•Inner Authority and personal Authenticity vs Outer authority making rules

•Self Dedication instead of initiation to become part of a group/coven

•Open vs being secretive about oneself

 

(Many thanks to http://www.wicca-spirituality.com for making such amazing informative articles on such topics.)

Here are some other kinds of Wiccans:

•Gardnerian

•Alexandrian 

•Seax 

•Dianic

•Blue Star WitchCraft

•Georgian

•British Traditional

•Celtic

plus many others!

 

A lot of times people wonder how they find out what they fall under. For me, this took 5 years- go figure. Sometimes you will find out after research that you fall under one or maybe even multiple types. 

A note for those who are NeoWiccan like myself: Don’t take the term “NeoWiccan” as an insulting term. You are still part of the Wiccan religion- you just study under a newer method. In the end, we are all witches/ Wiccan. 

Blessed be )O(
