There won’t be a “Life As The Witch” section today. I am getting ready to cover it right here. I know I will probably make some angry because it seems like every time I speak, I do.
“Life As The Witch,” it seems so romantic, so exciting, doesn’t it? I believe that is why so many people are attracting to Witchcraft. The thought of being able to have anything or anyone you want. All you have to do is wave that magickal wand and “Woops, there it is!” If only that were true.
When you stop to tell an individual how the Craft really is. It sort of dulls there excitement. In fact, some of them tell you to your face, forget it. Why? They don’t like the idea of Witchcraft being a Religion for starters. They don’t like the idea that the Craft is a very ancient Religion. One founded on faith in a Higher Being. There is a certain Path you have to follow. Witches just don’t run helter shelter all over everywhere casting spells and doing what they want. Traditional Witches might but we don’t. We don’t teach that. We teach there is a Higher Being named the Goddess. She is our all. You must have found Her first and foremost before you can ever think about doing Witchcraft. The Goddess is the essence from where all our power and being comes from. Without our Mighty Mother we are nothing. But first they are told, you have to have been called by the Goddess or born into the Religion (and now freely accept it as your own). The being called might upset some but I do not believe people come to the Craft by shear luck. I believe the Goddess touches their heart, spark an interest, then they find the Craft. I believe the Goddess choose everyone that comes knocking at our door. We have plenty that knock, but only the chosen stay. The chosen do not run when you tell them that Witchcraft is a true Religion. A very proud Religion dating back to the beginning of time. When you tell them about the Goddess, you can see it in their eyes. They have been touched by Her Love. Their eyes sparkle and they want to hear more about our wonderful Mother. They don’t run when they hear about the year and a day worth of studying and learning that is required. They don’t flee when they found out you have to have patience. The Goddess will reveal wonders to you, when she know you are ready. They don’t run when they find out, Magick and Spells are just a small part of Witchcraft. That there is so much more to our Religion, that you might only think about doing a spell once in a while. You will be consumed by other things more greater than spells. You will be engulfed in the Love and Beauty of Witchcraft.
After the initial process is over, those who stay do not realize what awaits them. I believe when all of us first started out we never knew what was in store for us. I do have one piece of advice for anyone considering taking up our Path. Realize first and foremost, our Religion is a Religion. Then Craft is a very spiritual journey probably one of the most spiritual journey you will find anywhere. I believe the mainstream Religions are as spiritual as Witchcraft. Next, you have to have patience and be willing to learn. Our Path requires Faith, Devotion, Love and most of all individuals who know and believe in what they are practicing.
We have many who knock but we have who few stay. For those that do, a wondrous world and Path awaits them. Stay strong in your believe and never get discouraged. The Goddess has a plan for you or else She would have never touched your heart.
