You decide you want to be a witch and you’re a witch!
I define a witch as someone who creates intentionally in their reality with whatever tools they choose (symbols, rituals, herbs, sex, visualization, etc).
We are all powerful creators with a multitude of skills and knowledge or ancestral wisdom that we are born into this time/space/reality with. We all have access to Universal life force energy and knowledge that can be used to create entire our realities and entire worlds when accessed and utilized with intention and focus.
For me, the path of the witch is opening oneself to the knowledge and wisdom that we already have access to, that is innate within us.
Although we come into this world as open and pure channels of Spirit, through the process of socialization, we often become closed off to our own magic, to our gifts and wisdom, to our connection with Spirit.
Identifying as a witch is, to me, a commitment to reawakening, to reclaiming one’s magic.
So you wanna be a witch?
Claim the path.
Commit to yourself.
Commit to your healing.
Commit to your integration.
Commit to walking in your truth.
Commit to the full possession of your power.
I AM A VESSEL OF SPIRIT. I ALLOW SPIRIT TO CREATE, TO MOVE, TO SPEAK, TO LOVE, TO HEAL THROUGH ME. I RECLAIM MY GIFTS. I RECLAIM MY ANCESTRAL WISDOM.
I RECLAIM MY MAGIC.
