That quote was beautiful. =D> Um... I just wanted to say that I think that everyone should have a little bit of helpful advice and I think that your advice was very helpful to me. I have to wonder, though. What made you want to tell us that? You don't have to answer me if you don't want to. I'm sorry if I come off sounding like a therapist.

i despise Silver Ravenwolf. it just seems to me that she's really exploiting this "it's hip to be Wiccan" phase that middle and high school girls are collectively going through.

i adore this article, and the site in general.

All of this sounds very good. But I've experienced meeting young people -- seven & eight years old -- 'naturals', whose magical savvy was stunning -- and sort of scarey. Sort of took the esoteric "cook-book" approach out of the magical journey for me...


I don't understabd...

Sorry for jumping in, in the middle, but dragonflydrummer, what do you mean you "took the esoteric 'cook-book' approach. Just curious, I don't understand. :-?

Oh sorry -- I was being sort of oblique there. What I'm saying is that magic is not purely practical (the cook-book approach: eye of a newt, wing of a bat, stomp around in a circle and concentrate on a string of words until -- POOF!). I've come to believe there is a natural and perhaps a genetic predisposition (or whatever other ways one acquires an inherent ability) to magic -- particularly in its healing, divinatory, and visionary realms... although I suppose there are inherent aspects that manifest on the darkside as well... I am not so apt to study that mode of magic as I am the light.

Apologies for the cryptic earlier post.

I must agree with that statement. It is an annoying stereotype that a few chants and a wave of the hands can make anything happen... And frogs... But I must say that I agree and I am glad to be a part of this wonderful site.

I'm new to the board, not necessarily new to paganism and witchcraft, having been a solitary practitioner for nine years now (time certainly flies!)

I agree with everyone who has said that it takes perseverance and a desire to learn, because that's exactly what is needed to study this path. No one can pick up a spell book, open it at random, perform a spell haphazardly and then call themselves an initiated witch! It takes a lot more than that!

I'm looking forwards to joining in the discussions and sharing with others here :-) Solitary witchcraft is my true path, but everyone likes to share information and anecdotes with likeminded people on occasion :-)

wow it has been so long sence the last last person has made a post on this section.

I a noob at the craft.I found this place hoping to grow and meet new people.
It has been an intrest of mine for years but it has only been a couple of months where I really started to study and take in as much as I and i still know nothing...

well that is not all true I have learned alot about myself as a person.I have done no spell or rits os of yet.Mostly because I want to make sure I know what I am doing.I is so hard when you don't know about any resources in my area.

brightest blessings my new friends!! :-D
