I am often asked, “What is Witchcraft, and how does one become a Witch? Who is goddess, and do you believe in god?” I respond, “I’ve always been a Witch!” Consequently, following the path of Witchcraft is a personal spiritual journey…lead by spiritual intelligence (s) . I further explain that knowing goddess and or god is not some “person” removed from self; goddess and or god is a personal “energy” of multiple intelligence that gives us power over our own destiny and thoughts of wisdom; guiding and blending our psyche and spirit into an intrapersonal union.
Of course, a lot of people travel through life never really knowing how to connect to their personal power that belongs to the essence of who they are. Incidentally, through my own self-cultivation, I have come to understand that the first “key” to unlocking one’s quest toward self-actualization is developing an understanding of one’s own psycho-spiritual temple. Thereupon, the metamorphosis of self can begin.
Similarly, my own journey to further understand my psychological and spiritual choices has naturally led me into the study of Esoteric Magik. I have been aware of my calling since I was about 7 years old. I can remember making my first holy communion and coming home that day literally riding my broom in my backyard…still dressed in white. I often look back on that picture with wonder…because I realize that magik I connect with so much now…was starting to become my own Witch’s brew. Subsequently, my spiritual journey into Witchcraft helped develop, nurture, and explore new types of consciousness that have healed me internally. The knowledge I have gained through the “Craft” has turned my whole being into a supernova of continues possibilities. As a result, I am living within a labyrinth of consciousness; aiming to further understand the inner world of my human soul and dimensions. The awareness I have gained while searching for self has made one of several discoveries apparent; certain experiences in life alter our perception and change us forever.
As I continue to find my true self, my whole psyche is intoxicated off of an elixir of divine energy. In the same manner, in the past, as well as present, my best tutors have been my karma and free will; how I’ve reacted to positive and negative situations while on my journey. Thus, the challenges I met were, and still are, my greatest teachers. Moreover, what has helped guide me in my choices has been that “personal power” I spoke of earlier, accessed through Witchcraft. For example, this magikal practice moves natural and harmonious energies, one’s true self, to effect and create needed change. Witchcraft follows the cosmic law that all deeply felt desires will ultimately create the means for their realization; and these desires are essentially a mixture of thoughts and feelings, thus, one’s creative energies. Incidentally, as an artist, I tap right into this reality of self-expression.
Ultimately, the process has helped me discover who I am and why I am here on mother-earth. Furthermore, I willfully share this knowledge with my homeschooled children, my husband and I call’ it Pagan Homeschooling via Creolemagik. Incidentally, when my husband and I decided to homeschool our children, we knew that our main goal was to instill a strong sense of self into their psyches. We want them to make the connection between their physical bodies and their cosmic selves…between the moon and the stars…the sun and the earth…between the elements of air and mind, fire and change, between water and emotion…you know…all I see is part of me! There is no need to seek outside of self to find peace…it lies within…that is our family motto. For our family, “Witchcraft curriculum” involves healing, nurturing, evolving ones mind, body, and spirit…and most importantly, a ‘vitality’ philosophy…just to name a few!
The magikal world, to me, is this very projection of natural energies (such as personal power) …all to bring about that needed change. That magik is the balance created between mind, body, and spirit.
Consequently, in my own discovery of self I have come to understand and accept my different spiritual insights. I never was in the broom closet about the energy that dances within me. It still swirls and conjures up pure Fire! However, the older I have become…the more I have appreciated the ability to really know and find myself. Hence, I’ve dedicated myself to awakening the divinity within myself and my children…well …helping them find their own light is more what that guidance is about…I also find strength in helping others. My method (s) have been motivation and intention…and trust in what I say that those gifts go very far when desire and passion are wrapped up within one’s innate intelligence.
Thus, my knowledge and interest in Witchcraft evolved naturally. The reason being, through my own journey, I have come to appreciate that being a Witch focuses in on body, mind, and spirit connections for self-healing and expression, going beyond the personal ego to unfold the enneagram. My interest and burning desire to understand the thought process behind the archetype (s) of the psycho-spiritual self and its underlying behaviors, in regard to motivation, intention, self-expression, and becoming one with the divinity within, in order to heal this vessel, drives me to pursue my goals each day.
I have come to know that the physical world is one of many realities and that it is not the absolute highest expression…one’s Spirit is an ultimate force to unfold. I mean one of the most important and foremost priorities is to love thy self…you must start there…to accept oneself is a precious gift.
Ultimately, as a consequence of my spiritual and emotional intelligence, I feel the reality I continue to choose will answer my inner needs and desires, not the impositions of others. I aspire, each day, to further illuminate my inner light of imagination, self-actualization, self-determination, intellect, and divinity. This is psycho-spiritual growth, and, to me…what Witchcraft is to be.
