What Would You Say?


I was getting ready to post Today’s Daily Draw this morning and I happened to look at my comments after I opened WordPress. I don’t normally do that but I listened to my intuition.  πŸ™‚  Among the comments was one from AJ Dixon of the blog adamdixonfiction. It was an interesting question so I decided to put aside the post I had ready for today and answer his question.

What would you say to people who are skeptical about witchcraft and the supernatural in general?

This is a thought-provoking question. I will do my best to explain what I believe to be true. I also don’t want to affect anyone’s faith in what they believe, but if I can open your eyes and your mind, even a little, perhaps you will see this planet with a whole new set of eyes. Then maybe you will be able to see a little what I see everyday. There are days when I wish people could feel what I feel, just for a few minutes. When I see a bird flying, or floating on warm current of air, I can feel that birds delight. Birds Love Flight! That is magick! There is magick everywhere, in everything.

The word Witch is a tripping point for some people. There is a lot of negativity around this word and that is by design. If conventional religion can keep us away from what comes natural to humans then they have won and we will believe whatever we are told to believe. After a few generations the memory of what was natural is gone and that life is now thought to be evil.

There was a time when magick and the paranormal was normal. This was a time when we lived in complete harmony with nature. No one thought it strange that they hear you having a conversation with the apple tree as you pick the fruit from her branches. No one looked twice or thought it strange that the village medicine woman was following a rabbit through the woods because he is showing her the way to a herb she is looking for to heal a neighbor. There was a time when doing spells, divination and speaking with the spirit realm was a part of everyday life. It is who we are and who we were designed to be.

We as a species knew every plant and it’s uses. We honored nature because we understood that we are kith and kin. We celebrated the seasons of birth, growth, maturity and death. This was a sacred time and the life that witches today live. We strive to live a life as connected to the old ways as possible.

The coming of science, technology and religion brought many wonderful things but at a very high cost. We have lost who we are, who we were. So much knowledge is gone. For example there is no illness that is not absolutely curable, but we have lost our faith in plants and crystals to heal, as a result people suffer needlessly. To live a life connected to witchcraft, to the paranormal and to magick is who we were meant to be. It is a path I walk everyday.

Thank you for your question! Have a great day everyone πŸ™‚

Blessed Be ❀

      1. I believe that this shift contributed to the abandoning of the old ways as did religion. Humans are a curious species. I don’t think it can be said that any one thing caused the change. It is more accurate, I believe, to say that it was a domino effect of circumstances that turned us from the old ways.

      2. So you believe that witchcraft and magic predates religion? That is an exciting idea, and one which I will ponder. Thank you for taking the time to respond, it is very interesting to hear your thoughts and beliefs ☺ It’s always fascinating to hear a view from someone so passionate.

  1. Great post. You did an excellent job of explaining witchcraft and/or the supernatural. Do you think we’ve lost the knowledge because of the killing off of witches, shamans, and spiritual healers?

    1. I think that this is partly why. Just like in a family, when an elder dies so does the knowledge they hold. I think that the major change happened because people change. Science, technology and religion worked together to move us away from the closeness we had. Some did not go easily.


      1. Yeah, I agree. Native Americans used to pass down their traditions orally. Then came the White Man with Science, Technology, and their Dogmatic Religions that basically ruined a culture. They also messed with people’s minds with biblical scriptures such as Exodus 22:18: “Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live”

      2. My Fathers family was Native American on his Mothers side. So yes. what was done to the native Americans is beyond deplorable. A culture that is different doesn’t mean it is bad or backward. I have read the bible many many times and it is something that I have not fully come to a decision about. On the one hand I believe that is holds a great deal of truth brought to us from the Godhead. On the other I think it has been altered so many times to conform to whatever the current pope decided was necessary that the truth of it has been hidden. Then we have the councils of Nicea and Carthage removing books because the council decided the offending books didn’t agree with their idea of the truth.


  2. I think science and tech aren’t as to blame to us losing ourselves as our addiction to it and rejection of connection to the environment and realm around us. I also think that a lot of times what is magick and withcraft is just an expansion (albeit not anything that could be proven) of what science has observed. Expanded and given names. All my opinion, of course. Especially when you get down to the quantum level. This is what has allowed me to travel the path I’m on.


    1. Thank you for stopping by. I appreciate it and your comment. I think that over hundreds and hundreds of years we have become very dependant on technology and what it offers. As a result we have forgotten who we used to be and the connection we used to have. It takes a very short space of time to forget.

  3. Great post to a thought provoking question. Times have undeniably changed, there’s no going back to how life was and yes, we may have lost a lot but I still believe it’s the choices we make and how we choose to live that defines our path in life.


    1. As much as I love big cities, I need to be in a quiet place. Where I am living right now I have the forrest less than a mile away and there are many lakes an the river. Parks are nice but achers of natural country side is much nicer.
