Witches Never Die, They Just Get Recycled

What is this life about and why are we here? Is there an afterlife? I get asked these questions a lot, especially by teenage witches who are curious to know the purpose of life and death. I usually answer by saying that a belief in an afterlife is a personal thing to each and every one of us, so you need to explore as many options as possible and then listen to your soul to find the truth for yourself.

Most witches throughout the world have a deep belief in reincarnation and the afterlife. Common sense tells us that living a life span of approximately eighty years and then just disappearing forever would be pointless. What could we possibly learn from that? Nothing–and so the modern-day witch tends to think along the same lines as many other religions and faiths, taking comfort in believing that our spirit lives on after we die.

Imagine that your body is an automobile and it transports your spirit around for the duration of your life. Just like an automobile, your body occasionally breaks down and needs repairing. A little tune-up  every now and again will keep it in peak performing condition, and of course, you’ll need to put the right gas in the engine in the form of healthy food. But no matter how good a caretaker you are, the body that is your vehicle can’t possibly last forever. Once it takes its last drive, your soul steep right out of it and after a little rest with your loved ones in spirit, gets back into another vehicle. This is the crux of reincarnation your soul gets a new care to drive around the Earth in again, so to speak.

What Is The Purpose of Reincarnation?

Some people really don’t understand reincarnation; they wonder why we would want to keep coming back over and over again. It’s a bit idealistic to think that we can have just one life and then retire to a fluffy pink cloud for the rest of eternity! You may well get to the ultimate resting place someday, but before you do, you have some work to do.

There are three reasons for reincarnating:

  •   To work on overcoming your faults
  •   To experience every human emotion possible.
  •   To eventually become a part of the Divine Power

When a soul is born, it begins a journey of spiritual development. With every incarnation on Earth, we learn valuable lessons that help us on the journey and go on to make us the true individuals we are. It’s a bit like being in school. Sometimes the lessons we face are painless and we can sail through them with ease. At other time, they can be hard-hitting and difficult making us face arduous challenges head-on.

Take, for example, a person who seems to experience trials and tribulations on a constant basis. From a spiritual perspective, what is this all about? Once you have undergone a lesson and have learned it properly, you won’t have to go through it again. That chapter of your life will be over and you will move on to other lessons. You might think that it’s unfair to have to go through problematic situations, especially if others around you seems to have it easier, but each lesson we face gives us an internal strength that can never be taken away from us. Call it character-building. These lessons enhance our inner wisdom, which is what we are all ultimately striving for. This is how it goes, life after life, until you’ve learned all you need to know.

Reincarnation relaxes the Soul

We are all reincarnating at different rates. This is why some people are truly wonderful and some are, well, not. Those who seem incredibly sensitive and loving are probably way ahead of the prickly, spiteful people in the reincarnation process.

When you meet lovely, kind, and caring people, it is probably that they have reincarnated many times. their endless incarnated many times. Their endless incarnations have raised their spirits’ vibration, so they automatically show patience and strive to do everything right in their lives. People who are mean, selfish, and egotistic probably haven’t reincarnated as much. That isn’t to say that these people are wicked; they simply haven’t learned all their lessons yet. Think of them as bratty adolescents and the sympathetic ones as the grandparents of the reincarnation process–regardless of their age!

Learn Your Lesson Well While You Can

While life is a series of tests, no one gives you a report card upon your death. Your reactions to situations are watched very closely to the spirit world, but you won’t be chastised if you slip up a few times. Witches know that before we finish reincarnating, we need to experience every single human emotions, so it’s safe to say that by the time we reach a state of perfection, each of us could have lived a thousand times!

From here on in, try to do at least one nice thing for another person every day. Smile at the postman, check in on that elderly neighbor or take a few minutes out of your day to ask how someone is doing. Once you get into the habit of being pleasant to others, it will beyond second nature, and your vibration will be buzzing with positive energy.

Take my word for it, it is fantastic!**

**Disclaimer**

All the information that has been provided on this page is accurate. Witchcraft is a very serious Religion. What we know and what some do has not occurred overnight. We have had to study and commitment our lives to Witchcraft. This is what Witches and Witchcraft are really like. If nothing else, remember, the snapping of fingers or a nod of a head isn’t going to make Magick happen. Witchcraft is work but the rewards are bountiful.

    Wiccan Magick is founded on the four elements… Fire, Air, Water and Earth. These four Elements correspond to the four instructions of our real world, the four quarters of the universe, the four winds, and above all the four quarters of the magic circle.

    • There are four elements that we always acknowledge. Like you mentioned, Fire, Air, Water and Earth. There is another one that is not so readily recognized, Spirit. As far as Wiccan Magick being found on the Four Element, I don’t think so. Magick is found within the individual. It is in all of us. Some of us just come to recognize that we possess it. Those that do, learn to control it, harness it and then use it to the benefit of mankind. We call the Four Elements to our circle to watch over us and aid us in our magick. Then we dismiss the Elements and thank them for Their presence and aid. Magick comes from within.

    I live here in Sequim, Washington. I would like to hear from you and come an meet all of you. I really need to sit and talk with someone about what I have been going through for years. Maybe you could help me understanding what I am suppose to be doing in my life. I have many feelings about who I am, and where I am from. Things that have been kept from me for some reason. Thank-you Sue

    • mistressofthemyst

      Greetings Sue,
      We would love to meet you but do you know where we are located? We are about 5,000 miles apart, maybe I have over or underestimated. I am awful with distance and mileage. But we are in Kentucky. You can discuss and handle some situations over the net just the same as a face to face. I know some think that they sit down and look into our faces the magickal answer is going to appear. We are just like any other person. We all have powers and are glad to use them to help people like yourself. All you have to do is let us.
      May the Goddess Bless,
      Mystie

    Somehow my name has been dropped off the WOTC distribution list. I didn’t think of this simple answer to why I hadn’t been receiving WOTC posts for a couple of weeks, and jumped to an alarming conclusion that you were either ill or something had happened to put WOTC off the air. Actually I did panic a bit about this and sent you an ‘I am worried’ note to your other email address. I am now pleased to see that I may have panicked unnecessarily. Please let me know that you really are OK.

    Lady A, you are special to me, so I worry about you.

    Would you mind putting me back on the distribution list?

    Sincerely,

    Graham

  26. Thank you for everything ya’ll do. This is such a truly amazing website. My go to for all

  27. I’m interested and want to know the best way to start my learning process whitch books to read what actions to take etc.

    • Congratulation on your new Path, Christopher. There are several books I could recommend but I don’t like their authors. They seem to beat around the bush too much for me. I have two favorite authors, Dorothy Morrison and Scott Cunningham. Both of these authors tell it like it is. They are contemporary authors. Ms. Morrison, I love her because she give you ideas that are simply and you probably wouldn’t think of. For instance, use a coffee maker to brew your brews in. She is very practical and also shows you do not have to break the bank to practice magick. Mr. Cunningham, is a very down to earth practitioner. Some Witches do not like him but he is a favorite of mine. Any of his books are well worth purchasing so are Ms. Morrison. There is one other that I do occasionally like to read on a dark, stormy night, that is Raymond Buckland. He has a book called “The Only Witchcraft Book You Will Ever Need.” It is pricy but well worth the purchase. I believe if you pick any of these authors to start with, you will be off to an excellent start.

    Do you have a place to join here or do you just post? I just came across this and its awesome.

    • What I love it is so simple. All you have to make a comment then send it. If the Spam eater decides it is not spam, it is them forwarded to me. Then I approve it and it post for all the world to read.

  29. Michelle

    Thank you for sharing this information. Love and Light

  30. I have been a solitary witch for almost my whole life. And I was looking threw the web and seeing the usual non-sense witchcraft pages that cater to mostly young teens. And I have never really found a true “witchcraft” site. But I happened upon this page, and it is simply the best site I have ever found. And the honesty and helpfulness on this page is undeniably the best I have seen. I think you for putting up this site and helping new witches. As well as reminding us elder witches of what it means to belong to our great religion.
    Blessings be,
    Mist~~

    • Thank you so much, Mist. I believe that is one of the best compliments we have received in a long time. I appreciate your comment very much. It is good to hear others’ opinions and ideas about the site. I hope you come to think of us as your home away from home, dear sister.
      Blessings to you & yours,

  32. Lady A~
    I am impressed and amazed at what you have accomplished here. Informative, truthful, insightful and proud. Thank you for representing us so very well. I am proud to count you as a friend.
    Hawk

    • It is about time you showed up. Now it is starting to feel like home again. Thank you coming from you that means a lot. It has taken us 3 years to get this far. I am hoping we have 3 more years. But to accomplishment what I am suppose to accomplish might take a life time. We have been trying to put on some Dragon Magick but it doesn’t seem to fly too well here. We will try again and see what happens. I really enjoyed talking to you. It had been way to long. Like I said I had been “stalking” you on FB and was worried about you. I am very happy things have turned around for you. You deserve all the happiest the world has to offer. I hope we keep in touch and you occasionally drop by. I am not crazy about FB, why I don’t know. I guess this place is my home and I feel like I belong here instead of over there.

      Anyway I am going to run for now. I hope to hear from you soon. Stay safe, Hawk!
      Love ya,
      Lady A

  33. Rowan

    I have been a solitary witch for many years . We used to have a local coven that would hold open circles for the sabbat rituals, but sadly that is no more. This site is remarkable, thank you for all you do!
