Honestly, what can I say? The amount of new followers to my “blog” is staggering. I couldn’t be happier that I am getting numerous new followers each day!… In fact there are so many new followers I am beginning to wonder how many of them are “bots”. So I suppose I shall address those whom are not infact some sort of malicious attack bots. So with no furthure adu…

It’s nice to “meet” you.
Can I get you anything? A drink perhaps?
No? Well Ok.

But in all seriousness, what topics would you (non-bots) like to see me disscuss on this blog?

While I wait for the emails to roll in I shall answer the most frequently asked question that I have gotten in the past, and forgive me if it has previously been discussed within the archives of this page.

How I became a witch:

This is not an easy question to answer. More accurately it is not an easy answer.

First off let’s set aside any spiritual or religious affiliations between my beliefs and being a witch. I tried different Christian faiths growing up and feel to some extent they were pushed upon me by my parents, in my heart I now know I was born pagan. The way I interpreted religious texts always had a pagan undertone, and when I finally came out of the broom closet as a pagan in my mid-twenties my family actually said “why’d it take you so long to realize?” and “I know you are.” Through my studies I had tried casting spells, doing readings, attempting spiritual communication, and a whole host of other “witchy” activities, but was still trying to be a good little christian girl. It wasn’t until I found out I wasn’t alone in how I felt “God” worked, how the afterlife worked, how the world worked, that I realized I had never been a christian. I was Pagan! All those questions I had asked of my church leaders -those questions they couldn’t answer- had come from my not being christian at heart, but instead knowing the truth deepdown all along. So I believe I was born a pagan (it just took me a while to accept it myself). But being a witch does not necessarily have anything to do with your spiritual or religious affiliations. You can be any religion and still be a witch. I just happen to be a Pagan Witch.

As I said, I now feel that I was born a witch. I sensed ghosts, had premonitions, could cause things to happen (wished for something and it would) and other witchy things from a very young age. My earliest memory of these “gifts” was at age two and a half years. I believe it to be my first preminition. I was at a parade and the Hostess Munchies were there (based on that I’m sure you’ve figured out how ancient I am). They weren’t doing anything other then waving to the crowd at this point -as it had been a very long walk from one end of town to the other (where I was). Suddenly this thought just popped into my mind, “The blue one is going to come shake my hand!” Thirty seconds later the blue Munchie was shaking my very surprised little hand!

Now I have to point out two things: 1. I had not seen them approach anyone else in the intire stadium and 2. I was 2 years old, no one had ever shaken my hand before as I was just a child and not worthy of that type of respectful greeting (again, I come from an earlier time). So even as an adult I would never have reason to think that of all the people and especially children in that stadium I would have been approuched. So preminition?

My sister also has some of these gifts. Her’s manifests most in electro-interference. When she gets upset light bulbs will blow up around her, electronic devices will malfunction and even blow up. My father saw ghosts, both his parents did  well (WWII soilders have good reason to have seen them), my grandfather also had several unusual premenitions in him time fighting (but this could have been a ghost watcing over him).

Having said that, others would say I did not become a witch until I was 20 years of age, for that is when I began studying every witchcraft book I could find (I highly recommend books by Raymond Buckland). But I also studied books by people calling themselves Raven New-Moon and Sarah Silver-Broomstick and other such names. I’ve personally found the “witchier” sounding the name the less they actually know about witchcraft. I’m sure there are exceptions to that observation but they are few and far between. (Seriously, what respectable witch would claim to ride their vaccum around the fullmoon every Halloween?)

After studying for a year and a day, I was initiated into the Pagan faith via what most people would call a baptism. But as I mentioned before my religious affiliation really doesn’t define me as a witch, but only as a pagan. I personally believe, I became a witch the day I began sharing my premonitions, readings, spells, ect. with clients. By that I mean, there was now a distinct line between my religious affiliations with spells and readings and etc. and with performing witchcraft for others. I am not a witch because I do spells, I am a witch because I do spells for others. At least that’s how I define it.

However -and this is the great thing about being a pagan, wiccan or witch- you probably have your own definition of what a witch is, nd  ld love to hear about it.
