Do you believe in it?
Are you a "witch"?
Do you collect crystals, do spells, and believe tarot, or any of those neo-pagan stuff?
Or do you think witchcraft is something to take more seriously?
Do you have any stories about witchcraft, brujas, rithuals, shamans, and the like?
Is "witch" a female-only term? What do you think about the story of witchcraft and women?
Post everything related to this here. It doesn't matter if your only experience is playing with a ouija board in 7th grade, just discuss.

I don't believe in it and dont practice it, but i like the aesthetic.

the dark rooms, decor, smell of herbs and plants, the artwork.

I'd like to think if it were real i would be some kind of plant witch. Love my houseplants.

I wish it were real but I think it's past its time. It's cool to read about historical sort of things, you know paganism, especially the maenads/Bacchantes.
picrel is a painting which always makes me think "women supporting women" lmao. The regular women from this place Amphissa protected the maenads from being preyed upon in their sleep. The maenads in general have great lore surrounding them like tearing apart a creepy man for hiding among them in disguise.
Sorry if that's ot, but I wish that insane, dedicated pagan shit was around today. I'm not really serious since they were violent and unhinged etc etc. Still it's a lot cooler than "witches" nowadays who to me are clowny larpers but I definitely see the appeal. Sadly it doesn't make sense to be a witch or pagan anymore.

>Do you believe in it?
Yes 100%, but also 0%
>Are you a "witch"?
I'm a female magician or mystic, so you can put it like that. Though I feel like "witch" is something more earned through wisdom and time.
Also, schizo posting helps getting around censors.

>Do you collect crystals, do spells, and believe tarot, or any of those neo-pagan stuff? Or do you think witchcraft is something to take more seriously?

How is that not taking it seriously if someone does believe in it? Also what is doing a spell? You first have to define that. Doesn't writing words conjure up images, don't images conjure up feelings, doesn't it influence what we perceive as the real world? Isn't art a spell or form of magic? Isn't science not just a word for some of the great things the magic of imagination and invention has brought us? Isn't it magical that life imitates art? Isn't it true that especially for women, the mind has a great effect on our performance in what we perceive as reality? Mere words spoken before an experiment can change the outcome like an incantation. Our imagination has been especially repressed by the powers of the status quo, so it's no wonder.
>Do you have any stories about witchcraft, brujas, rithuals, shamans, and the like?
After the first time I tried magic mushrooms, all intrusive despondent thoughts disappeared and haven't come back since. Every few months to once a year I plan another trip, to gain more insight.
>Is "witch" a female-only term What do you think about the story of witchcraft and women?
Technically no, but men appropriating it feels very tone deaf either way. I think men labeled a lot of their magic "science" and we've only recently been allowed to be a part of that. And the witch hunts were after real witches, as in women who practiced magic. Healers, mathematicians, literate women, all in an effort to stifle women's magic and preemptively exclude us from the institutions they would set up.
For me calling a lot of things "magic" is also a form of reclamation.

Idk. I've been autistic about mythology/occultism/weird philosophy since early childhood and it's kind of just culminated in me becoming a mildly schizo mystic. I think I'm kinda similar to >>826783

>Do you collect crystals, do spells, and believe tarot, or any of those neo-pagan stuff? Or do you think witchcraft is something to take more seriously?

I like tarot cards and I keep an altar in my bedroom. I don't think having crystals and stuff means you're "not taking it seriously".

Don't believe in witchcraft. I find most of it to be, quite frankly, just people trying to make themselves seem more interesting or doing it because wicca is trendy right now. Quite frankly, I find (some) of it disrespectful to women who were put to death for 'witchcraft.' A lot of those women weren't claiming to be witches, they were simply old women who were easy targets to blame for the latest crop failure, and seeing 15 year olds romanticize that sort of thing feels a bit iffy.

I like crystals, I think they're pretty, though the idea that they're exclusively witchcraft related is a bit more recent (they've always been an element of certain branches of wicca, but they seem to be automatically associated with the religion now).

I definitely think 'witchcraft' should be taken seriously in a historical context. The history of medicine is very intertwined with the history of witchcraft. Take the Ancient Roman witches for instance. Much of what they did would be, in modern day, considered medical treatments.

It is theorized that one of the many, many motivations behind the witch craze of the 17th century could've been the result of the rise of the medical practice. As medicine was taken more seriously, it became a men's profession, and one that brought prestige at that, with physicians beginning to come out of the academy.

When one looks at the history, many of the witches who weren't just random women were those brewing tonics for various ailments. Makes one's university education seem a little less prestigious when the old woman down the street is running a more successful practice than you. What better way to get rid of the competition than claim they've made a pact with Satan and must be executed?

One of my friends became a witch when we were teenagers. She's a lovely girl, though I don't know if she still identifies as one (I haven't seen her in a long time). She struggled with a lot of problems, and I hope she found purpose in wicca. I might not believe in it, but provided you're not hurting anyone and it makes you happy, I'm okay with it. Despite some personal misgivings, there are far worse things in the world than wearing crystal necklaces and forming covens.

>Do you believe in it?
I do but honestly on and off. I’m falling out of it from time to time but I have been interested in it since I’m 14.
>Are you a "witch"?
I do believe so. Although saying it out loud would make me cringe.
>Do you collect crystals, do spells, and believe tarot, or any of those neo-pagan stuff?
I have a few crystals. Amethyst, clear quarz, rose quarz and some for chakras. I also really like black Turmaline because it’s naturally magnetic so i feel like it’s a good absorbant.
>Or do you think witchcraft is something to take more seriously?
Definitely, I think if you look at social media, tiktok, amino there are lots of egos floating around who just need attention. It’s sad.
>Do you have any stories about witchcraft, brujas, rithuals, shamans, and the like?
I mean I have nice memories celebrating sabbats but one really emotional experience was during a meditation. I tried to see if i could meed the goddess and god and just hang out with them and it was really amazing and I just cried? I never thought i could get so emotional during something like this.
>Is "witch" a female-only term? What do you think about the story of witchcraft and women?

i have been some kind of pagan since child because my parents and overall environment was like that and i honestly believed in all kinds of pagan stuff from my country. nowadays i guess i consider myself some sort of secular pagan lol, because even if i'm not full on collecting crystals and practizing witchcraft kind of pagan i still hold different kind of magical beliefs about nature and stuff. i don't follow any sort of specific movement i just do stuff that feels right and have magical thinking.

I've mentioned in the last confession thread that I'm still on the fence about witchcraft and I do like some aspects of it, my favorite being how unapologetic women oriented it is. I also love the nature elements, it's really beautiful aesthetically and I feel like it's respectful to our home, as corny as this is. I just get a real feeling of sublime and insignificance in the best way when looking at nature, especially the sky, so I feel very… Grateful? Towards it.

I already also like some elements of it "for fun", like tarot, manifestation, pretty rocks. What would be a way to get in it "deeper", but not too deep all at once? Dipping toes and all that.

Also one thing that I think is really funny is that in my country we have a "watered down" and full of catholic syncretism of spells, they are called "simpatias" but they are literally just spells with a Christian prayer at the end.
For example, I saw this one for getting a job: you'd right your name and wanted job position with ink on a paper, get a key and fold the paper with the key in it. Then you mix sugar and cinnamon with water, put the paper and key inside it and let it for a week on top of a very tall cabinet or the liking for a week. Afterwards, you throw away the water (preferably on plants) and pray a Lord's Prayer.
It's funny (and annoying) to see boomer aunties doing it but looking down on witchcraft.

> What would be a way to get in it "deeper"
How about celebrating the sabbats? Picrel

It’s definitely also a lifestyle however you don’t have to do a spell daily or some shit like that. I do like to do different activities matching the season to appreciate nature, like collecting fallen down acorns or leaves. Maybe if you have an altar or a ~litte corner~ you can decorate it.

One topic i find really interesting is ~cultural appreciation ~ is this a thing? I’ve seen people “borrowing” traditions and practices here and there and apparently using a smudge stick is stealing from the natives of America or something

what dangers exactly am i facing when i collect rocks and pinecones from the woods? i mean sure i am potentially putting my health in hazard when i collect bones and other dead parts of animals, but what horrible danger does this behavior put women under? the stupid hysterical girls need someone to guide them? how exactly does your moral panic over witchcraft differ from all the idiotic think pieces how gone girl and midsommar ar bad for women because we stupd, stupid girls might not know the differnce between right and wrong and now we might get sucked into neo paganism over science or whatever because we women just are so fucking stupid apparently.

i really am only interested in traditions of my own country's origin because that's what's familiar to me since childhood and since i don't really feel like follwing some random rules ai just do stuff that feels right and traditions i fel connected to. honestly it's the reason why i have never gotten into crystals because i really do not see any spiritual sense in taking some random mass producted rocks from other side or the world, like what do i gain from it. i feel more spirit in just common rocks i notice in the nature, because i feel that they have lived there and "seen" their environment, and are connected in that way to the surrounding world better than some rock i could buy from a store.

Hey anon guess what not everything everyone says is about you. no one is talking about or cares about you collecting animal bones (??), what's bad for women (and people in general) in the real world is when they are easily persuaded into retarded political or financial desicions (like routinely paying for sessions with a psychic or medium etc, buying crystals or other ~magic~ items, using their pension to go to lourdes etc). In general, being open to believing irrational things makes you easier to control. Women in catholic countries were kept uneducated and completely controlled by the church for centuries, for example after women got the right to vote in my country they all voted for the same Christian party because they didn't have access to any knowledge besides whatever their priest was telling them that week

Anon did you see a TikTok and think that's actual magic kek.
Classical astrology (birth charts, repetitive events in history corespondending to planet positions), psychology (tricks, dominance displays, manipulation, etc), and herbal medicine (rich ppl all have a holistic/Chinese ancient medicine Dr) were all witch craft, they're useful skills. The moon water shit is just zoomers playing make believe.
For example https://www.smithsonianmag.com/science-nature/astonishing-medical-potential-soil-northern-ireland-graveyard-180973741/
Just because ppl don't understand how something works, doesn't mean that it doesn't work. These sorts of things were considered witch craft, and once we understood how it works we call it science. I'd wish scientists would get around to trying to disprove/approve stuff like crystals having healing properties, if we never test it then how can we know if it works or is just placebo.

>One topic i find really interesting is ~cultural appreciation ~ is this a thing
I've always firmly believed that magic is most potent when it's practiced by people native of the culture it belongs to. I could research and practice indigenous African witchcraft, but it would never be on the same level that a native African would achieve. Another thing I've personally experienced - I'm born and raised in Eastern Europe, but currently live in a Western country, and while I am indulging in ancestral worship it never feels as "right" as practicing it in my native country's lands. It feels more watered down. Of course some people could view this as "problematic" because they believe every form of witchcraft should be open practice regardless of ethnicity/race or maybe they want to practice their ancestors' religion while being born in a different country. It's just my personal view, you could learn everything about a culture and speak their language but you will still be at the end of the day weaker connected to it than a native.

I'm similar to >>826783 and >>827465 like I do believe in magic and at the same time I don't. It's a very weird feeling. Maybe now that I'm older I'm more sure it's real kek. I'm still at the "seeker" stage, and I think I'll always be.

I wouldn't call myself a witch though: I mean I'm not practising it that much, it's more like a mentality or a world view that I have. I never have participated in elaborate rituals, I've just made little offerings etc. small scale stuff. To me, magic is making your will come true and you can achieve that in many ways.

I don't collect crystals, they're just pretty little trinkets to me. Tarot works, if you put your mind to it and have a certain goal (this could be said about anything of course).

I feel the difference between female and male magicians/witches/whatever is that males tend to have weird motives behind their will to do stuff with magic. Like for example look at the myriad succubi threads on 4chin. Scrotes gonna scrote I guess.

I love that the "pagan/witchcraft trend" has become a thing personally, because it's made it so much easier to learn and find things than when it was a more niche topic. Especially the interest younger women have today in the herbal/healing/scientific/psychological aspects of it.

In my opinion, "witchcraft" is a healthy female-oriented alternative to the boys'" clubs" that gatekeep education, tradeskills and business. The more girls and women who unify and learn the old knowledge that still works (like medicine), the less we as a society will have to rely on artificial, patriarchal means. If women build communities where they grow their own food, practice herbal wellness and take care of each other the less dependant they are on other means that may be predatory or for profit.

>inb4 imaginary friend
I think feeling the real presence of another entity in the room with you can turn any skeptic into a believer. I've had psychic experiences like dreaming of a certain song only to hear the anouncer on the radio start the song just seconds after waking up.

I also know what it's like to be under a full-on psychic attack by demonic entities. These beings can turn you psychotic and schizophrenic. I've seen a full pack of Dragon's Blood incense disappear right before my very eyes and they even stole candles from my ancestral deity, the Buddha, and my guardian angels. I later found these candles in a different part of the house.

I guess that works as a catch-all title, but I don't call myself that and I get a little sus of people who introduce themselves as such.

>Do you collect crystals, do spells, and believe tarot, or any of those neo-pagan stuff?

I collect crystals because I think they're pretty and I like the #aesthetic, but I don't personally believe they do anything for me aside from being good worry stones. I read tarot cards because I think of them as a tool to assess your psychological state in an abstract/visual form. I have occasionally done sigil work and sympathetic magic. I don't have particular interest in worshiping pagan deities, but I do believe in petitioning. I have absolutely zero interest in modern Wicca, its derivatives, or any theories perpetuated by that con artist hack, Gerald Gardner.

>Or do you think witchcraft is something to take more seriously?

I think taking it seriously can be about as useful as learning any trade in life, but it takes a long time to git gud, there is a significant amount of misinformation out there, and everything you learn about it should be taken with a heaping spoonful of salt (no pun intended) and critical thinking.

>Do you have any stories about witchcraft, brujas, rithuals, shamans, and the like?

I had a really interesting experience with a 'haunted house' investigation conducted by a local ghost-hunting organization, and also done several 'spells' that seemed to work (and really reinforced my belief that specific wording is key in whatever you go about trying to do). Other than that, I've hung out with people who really…ran the spectrum in whether I thought their witness testimony of supernatural events was believable or no. I also have a member of my family who's suffered from psychosis before in the past so if allowed to ask questions, I'm usually able to tell when a story sounds like it was the result of some kind of mental illness or whether it was something else.

Is "witch" a female-only term? What do you think about the story of witchcraft and women?
No, they used to commonly be called 'cunning folk', and 'witch' even used to be a gender-neutral word up until something like the 1700's iirc. I do think 'witchcraft' was a way back then for the people who were the most powerless members of society (usually poor, single women) to 'get justice', whatever way they could, and that's the reason why their existence was so frightening to people. The idea that the lowest-status individual of society might have the power to punish others for the wrong-doings they'd inflicted on herself or others was anathema to every man guilty of abusing his power. It's still an idea that people are attracted to, which is why I think we've seen this BOOM of interest in the occult over the past decade or so - people feel more powerless than ever right now and are looking for whatever allows them to feel like they are 'doing something' to fix their lives or the world around them.

Anyone here do deity work with goddesses outside your culture? I've done LHP with goetic angels for most of my life because that's how I was raised, but I'd like to branch out and learn from other entities. Most pagans in my area stick to Greek or Norse gods due to pop culture exposure, but I don't feel comfortable with any of them. Picrel is the only goddess I've found so far that feels, I dunno, right somehow? But I wasn't raised Hindu or Buddhist and wonder if it's even okay to work with her.

I haven't really found any religion that has suited my beliefs to a T, but I guess witchcraft is the closest. I like nature, herbalism (using it for spells and healing), and follow moon phases and think both sun and moon have abilities, like the rest of nature. Also, celebrating the sabbats has been fun and healing.
I wish I could belong to more of a religion rather than being spiritual though, I guess just so there was somewhere I could belong with like-minded people. I've looked into Wicca (since it's nature-based), but my belief of angels/demons/ghosts conflicts with that religion. But reading some of the posts in this thread, believing in spirits seems to be in line with witchcraft.
I've been recovering from being raised in Catholicism for years (not my choice). Took a long time just to accept appreciating nature and using it for craft. I just couldn't participate in a religion that had so much disdain and hate for women and had animal sacrifice in its books. For example, reading that menstrual cycles matched the moon cycles was a much nicer belief, rather than literally being told growing up that my period was "a punishment for being a woman".
What is ironic is like what >>893804 mentioned, there is a lot of what you would consider spells in Christian beliefs. Even down to there being "deities" (saints) for certain spell work (prayer). That aspect was interesting, but I'm trying to separate myself.

Incoming schizo thought but: do you think it’s possible to be a witch and not know it? Over the last several years, I’ve watched a lot of people that I perceive as having wronged me have absolutely shit luck happen to them later down the line. I’m talking car wrecks, injuries, illness, job loss, all kinds of shit. And I feel kind of weirdly guilty for it sometimes. Did my a-logging these people accidentally put a curse on them?

True and real power can only be rhythmically practiced and carried on by a covenant with land or blood. It is most potent through multiple generations. You cannot use herbs that are grown by someone else, plucked by someone else, and shipped to your local co-op as a substitute for plants that come from the dirt your ancestors (or sworn members) toil.

power is holistic, yet closed. much like how store bought herbs cannot be used, a spell cannot be shared on the internet and be expected to work in the same facet. A spell is knowing the true name of something, and it's the true name that is only known through the covenant that has either been left to you or created by you.

I've a question for you out of pure curiosity, not hostility: if these things are real, why do they seem not to be? You'd think it would be obvious with how badly people try to get what they want and the lengths they'll go to (or not go to, if they can find a shortcut). Shouldn't it be self-evident if magic, demons, and so on are real? Wouldn't more people be getting results? So often it's self-proclaimed practitioners of magic who are miserable, unfulfilled people so I have to wonder. To you guys is it that it's something about the nature of it being more difficult and hidden than that by virtue of being occult? It's just interesting that I've never found someone who gained something meaningful out of it, or who was well-balanced and not at least halfway a cow. To be fair I suppose you'd have to be a little wonky to go off the beaten path.

I'm sorry that shit happened to you, anon. Ari Aster will always be a faggot moid, and we all know why.
Hereditary was weird to me, because the obvious defense was never even brought up. If you're an atheist, and you're being attacked by demons, then your worldview has effectively been smashed, and there's really no option but the obvious. We can't even just say it "doesn't work", they fucking hate it and leave you alone in short order if you actually hold conviction in your words and actions. This is my "thing" in general, re: demon attacks. What I'm about to say is meant in no offense to you. IMO, it makes sense to cooperate with all sorts of entities, but why neuter yourself in the process? It's not even something outside oneself, really. Are people scared it looks like they're pussying out? Is it in hopes of not offending them and/or others? Because if you're being attacked, trying to appease your assailant or beg them to show mercy is a very bad move

Women are unironically better at these things, but they're also socialized to hold men's opinions above everything and try to browbeat eachother on whether or not they "look good" to moids. This isn't just the case for anything regarding spirituality or witchcraft, you see this "OMG you make all women look bad!!!" shit when it comes politics (feminism being the biggest example, see: libfems and pickmes who rage at radfems for being too misandrist), sexuality, fashion/makeup (or lack thereof), even the way you fucking sneeze or cough. It's just the hyper-rationalized version of the need to "be ladylike", whatever "ladylike" means in the given context
Men, on the other hand, are unapologetically schizo when they're not denying anything they can't control. They dive headfirst into researching and trying to understanding as much shit as they can to make up for their innate limited ability, and they barely waver even slightly when shamed or called "schizo" by those outside their field of interest. On top of that, both powerful men and women do their weird fucking rituals that most of their predecessors and family members have also practiced, while "skeptics" nervously laugh and go "T-Those crazy rich people doing crazy rich people things…Means nothing….".
tl;dr: A lot of women need to realize that "schizo" doesn't actually mean the same thing as "wrong"

I will spell this out further.

>I have no money or land

Land is not always the land beneath your feet. I stated you can also start a covenant with land. Dirt is land. You can grow plants in your home. If you can afford to buy herbs in a store, then you can start planting. This is the first step to building conviction and rhythmic practice. Your plants will die. You will try again. You do not get the fruits of your own labor immediately. It's about building principle and allowing the environment to trust your knowledge and intuition. Some of the most knowledgeable practitioners had nothing to their name, were slaves, recluses, or were women tossed to the curb in society.

>I have no witch ancestors

I said the covenant that has been left to you or created by you Someone must start a cycle. Or someone must reconnect to an ancestor who once did know the true names of things in your line. We are all connected to a black sheep somewhere in our heritage. Knowing your ancestor's names is not necessary in becoming familiar with them either. Getting to know yourself is literally getting to know them.

A covenant that is left to you is not always blood family. I said blood, and then I said "or sworn members." Many movements had covenants with one another regardless of literal blood lines.

True power cannot be commodified like food or fashion.
When I say you must build I mean it will take time. Sometimes years. That's what true power is.

Hylics stay seething. Also I never answered the questions in the OP
>Do you believe in it?
Yeah, but not in the commercialized sense. Mostly, I believe in not following the modern cult of willful blindness, paying attention to one's grandparents, and learning about different cultural practices (especially those close to home, if possible).
>Are you a "witch"?
Not exactly, but I think occult stuff is pretty fascinating.
>Do you collect crystals, do spells, and believe tarot, or any of those neo-pagan stuff?
I think tarot is a great tool.
>Or do you think witchcraft is something to take more seriously?
Depends on what's meant by "seriously". r/witchesvsthepatriarchy stuff and "hex the moon" BS is too cringy for me, but I feel like anyone who doesn't come from a very milquetoast family has enough anecdotal evidence in their life to consider it. I think what opened my eyes the most is the Wiseman/Schlitz experiment, things about the CIA investigating astral projection, Nikola Tesla's thoughts that still have some people seething, and the observation that families more successful than the average person unironically believe in these things. Also, the more I learn, the more "placebo" seems like a cope for the fearful. People who call everything retarded, schizo and fake just make me roll my eyes, because more often than not, they seem to speak from ignorance (deliberate or not) to all sorts of concepts and their own emotional investment in said ignorance than from knowledge on the subjects they want to debunk. I've never seen a person who's like "I've researched this in excruciating detail, and here's why it's all lies, all of it", but I've seen the exact opposite a lot.
>Do you have any stories about witchcraft, brujas, rithuals, shamans, and the like?
Yeah, but for whatever reason, I don't ever feel comfortable sharing them with people I don't know well.
>Is "witch" a female-only term? What do you think about the story of witchcraft and women?

Yes but not like a religion I constantly have to remind myself to follow, or the "like to charge reblog to cast" meme social media corruption
>Are you a "witch"?
No, but only because I know I do not do the things I should. I'm always distracted but I always have believed in it through various intensities.
>Do you collect crystals, do spells, and believe tarot, or any of those neo-pagan stuff?
I collect crystals as shiny room decorations, I do spells very very rarely. I "believe" tarot in the way that its a little game way where the results can bring up some points that do relate to your situation, make you reflect, then change.
>Or do you think witchcraft is something to take more seriously?
Yes 100%, but no religion/ spirituality is 100% serious. And crystals,spells, tarot doesn't mean you don't take it seriously.
>Do you have any stories about witchcraft, brujas, rituals, shamans, and the like?
At 15 I used to try "charging" a crystal in the sun/moonlight on a windowsill. It was completely covered by blinds but every time I came home/woke up it would be somewhere else like the desk. Here's the part where I'm called crazy for thinking a ghost or demon moved it. Surprise, I knew it was one of my family going in my room and moving it for whatever reason! Bc of that I have never sat down and done a real genuine spell read and researched from a book due to lack of money and fear of being called a crazy schizo, reinforced by my family calling my uncle's Wiccan wife insane (never knew her). Meanwhile he was a shitty druggie husband and there are multiple orthodox families getting their daughters married off at 18 and buying a house for her future 10+ children where I grew up. So who is the real crazy…
I used to feel very connected to a goddess but never did anything for her even after promising in my mind I would if she supported me in getting through anxiety and learning. I always and still feel so unmotivated to do anything but lay down and relax with my cat, outside of random bursts of motivation that go away hours later. She's been in the backdrop for at least 5 years, I have to work on genuinely changing myself to properly connect with her again(I don't think I ever really was sadly), even deluding myself we already are would give me that short burst of motivation, then I'd fall back again. It's a sad cycle I know kek, I'm going to begin putting more of the animal she's associated with around myself as a start. There's also another goddess from the country my mother is from with the animal but idk if it would cause problems.
>Is "witch" a female-only term? What do you think about the story of witchcraft and women?
Yes to me it is. Ask someone or yourself what comes to mind when you hear the word "witch", 99% it is of a green, hook nosed woman on a broomstick. That is proof that even in the watered down, jokey, many times offensive modern depiction, an elderly woman is what you think. And guess what sex and age of person held knowledge of spirits, natural medicine, childbirth issues, beer, remedies brewed or baked or boiled in a cauldron, etc. ?
Also because men should be excluded for once and witchcraft in women's history is extremely based.

She is a form of Parvati. Hinduism is pretty open, but I believe the tantric forms of the Goddess need to be worshipped by people who follow a certain lifestyle (no meat/eggs, alcohol, drugs, etc.). As long as you come to the Goddess with pure intentions and respect Her, I believe you will have a positive experience. Make sure you do your research and know what you're getting into, particularly with Tantra and Tantric forms of the Goddess…

I'm not born Hindu, but married into it & live in India. Hindus here are really excited whenever foreigners are interested in their culture/religion.

As for experiences with "foreign" deities: I had a cool experience with our neighborhood God, a large cobra.

When I first moved here I went to his temple and asked not to see any snakes.

That night was a full moon and I was on our roof.

The moon became covered with clouds. The image in the clouds was a snake going up a mountain path. The clouds shifted became an old man with one hand up, very obviously a Rishi. It looked like a photo. It was so realistic. I had my journal with me and immediately wrote it down.

I am leaving the country and I really wanted to see the giant cobra God all the neighbors talk about. I passed the temple (can't go in this time of year due to rains) and asked to see Kariya Baba before I go. Less than a week later a 7 foot long cobra was in our front yard. That boi was THICC as hell too. I have NEVER seen a snake in the years I've lived here until I asked to see him.

Yes, I do. I got into an argument with this crazy bitch on 4chan for pointing out that she isn't an empath. The argument carried over to two threads. I tipped her off telling her that the darkness she detected from me is from my ex- practicing (retired witch now) She didn't believe me about the Nordic runes and herbalism, saying anyone on youtube can do that shit. I told her she messed up the energy around me and she should be more careful whom or what she pisses off since "muh high sensitivity empathy" and that she'll have issues with her love life now.

Crystals worked, spells backfired, believe tarot but don't own it, use eggs to check curses, jars to make well-being spells, and I collect pine cones, stones, plants and colored candles.

>Or do you think witchcraft is something to take more seriously?

Honestly yes. I tried breaking the arm of someone who betrayed me. For one second I doubted my protection on my family, and the next week my grandma broke her arm.
I was always too scared to try the Bloody Mary in the mirror, kek.
Also I am vary of doing any negative spells. If I am pissed off I am better off sending negative energy and protection from certain persons. They then have very shitty days. If I try to be specific with a spell, the universe says, fuck you, and puts it on me while giving them good luck.

>Do you have any stories about witchcraft, brujas, rithuals, shamans, and the like?

My grandmother told me about some demons. I have vivid memory of my mother(?) rubbing shit in my eyes and chanting Beelzebub. This must be absolute horseshit unless another universe exists.

>Is "witch" a female-only term? What do you think about the story of witchcraft and women?

Witchcraft requires insane amount of intuition and feeling. Women naturally have more of this, so they have more power from it. Sexism also played a role in calling everyone a witch, but women were more capable than just using a mother's instinct to protect their children. Imo witch is only a female term. Men have.. wizard for that.

Oh no I forgot to fill this in the other day, sorry nonas!
>Do you believe in it?
Yes and no. I believe that most gods/spirits/whatever are personified concepts that humans made up in order to better understand those concepts. I also believe that most magic amounts to behavior changes in order to achieve a desired outcome. Doesn't make it any less "real", just gives it less unwanted power over me and others.
>Are you a "witch"?
Probably? I've been part of multiple druid groves and still do divination practice. I don't do a lot of active spells or deity work these days because I don't have as much need to.
> Do you collect crystals, do spells, and believe tarot, or any of those neo-pagan stuff?
I collect rocks because I like rocks, and do tarot both for fun and to facilitate advice. I do spells through singing and music because that's how I best connect with anything spiritual. I used to have a pendulum that worked well for me, but had to retire it when my health deteriorated.
> Or do you think witchcraft is something to take more seriously?
It's as serious as someone wants to take it. Personally I don't get along with "serious" practitioners. It often feels like a battle of "my imaginary friend is better than your imaginary friend!" and it's exhausting dealing with self-important witches who think that their way is the only way. I'm also an irreverent person and will joke-insult my deities as a form of affection because they're big enough to take it and that's considered distasteful in my local community.
> Do you have any stories about witchcraft, brujas, rithuals, shamans, and the like?
I did LHP with goetic angels for years because I was raised in an adjacent tradition. Real schizo shit where I'd see and talk with them, and they'd help out with parts of my life. An older practitioner lent me a peacock feather to make one of the angels happy and it was the best wand I've ever had. It's so swishy and fun to direct!
> Is "witch" a female-only term? What do you think about the story of witchcraft and women?
I didn't think so growing up but I definitely do now. Every mixed grove I've been to has been an uncomfortable experience because of the men there. I left my first grove because one of the arch-druids kept pushing me into a priestess role to invoke the goddess which I didn't want to do at the time. He was pushed into accepting his masculine "priest" energy by the group's leader and figured I needed the same treatment in order to grow. It's laughable that a man tried to teach me how to invoke the goddess when all I had to do was just get older and let that energy come naturally. Across multiple cultures and time periods magic and higher reasoning were restricted to women, and I think there are reasons for that. Perhaps men have a place in witchcraft, but in a support role to a female practitioner and never as a soloist.

I guess, but I would never actually call myself that out loud. I'm more of a theistic Satanist.

I do spells when I need to and read tarot as an introspective practice, but I think a lot of neo-pagan stuff is hokey and too capitalist.

>Or do you think witchcraft is something to take more seriously?

I don't believe in the 3 fold law or anything but you have to think long term about what you're doing and what consequences might be there. I really hate seeing teens online buying shitty Hot Topic witchcraft books to make spell jars and call it a day. And please stop saying "baby witch".

>Do you have any stories about witchcraft, brujas, rithuals, shamans, and the like?

I was always drawn to witchcraft but didn't get serious about it until after my mom died and I got into some very fucked up, schizo ritual shit. It became more important to me and allowed me to see things in a new light and bigger picture. I've mellowed out since then though.

>Is "witch" a female-only term? What do you think about the story of witchcraft and women?

Yes. Men need to stay out of witchcraft. Witchcraft is about creating, something women naturally know how to do. Men are incapable of tapping into that ability. It's not for them.

Wicca normally has three main branches for the main religion. You have gardenia and Crowley. Then dianic. Dianic was not started by the moids that started Wicca. It was started by a women who is a terf (according to trans people) and she personally has said things against trannies.
The other branches tend to focus on the god and goddess. Dianic focuses on the goddess. There are no male practitioners of any kind. In Dianic. There’s some books you can read inspired by their mostly by eclectics who aren’t part of a circle and never learn the inner workings of the practice. So take it with a grain of salt.
As for reclaiming start with the WITCH one it’s the best I can think off as a starting place.

Ariadne's Thread is another good one. There's a lot of forgotten 2nd wave feminist witchcraft books that may/may not necessarily fall under Dianic wicca but has similar themes and go into reclaiming & stuff like that. If you have a secondhand bookstore near you that has a new age/wicca section, there's usually funky forgotten books there for cheap that are great doorways. If I remember any other titles I'll come back but definitely try googling around for Dianic wicca books, that's how I found out a lot of info and there's usually pdf or epub downloads available if you can't afford to buy the book/it isn't available.

(Something that tells me respect.) his book of practical magick has a lot of breathing techniques and hands and setting intent work to add in with the Wicca and focus on Dianic. I found a copy of witch online last year so I think you can find it and like the another anon said above a lot online if you look for books. As far as circles do you have any witches hours or drum circles at local metaphysical stores or coffee shops. Places to meet other potentially practicing women that’s how I found most of the other magical women I know.

I’m late to this but literally the only reason I don’t share more yet is due to future legal proceedings. This person is genuinely a fucked up degen so there’s no possible way they’re going to get away with it. There’s a reason all their posts are weirdly specific and vitriolic, and their ad-libs aren’t random and are actually based upon very specific events and actions. It isn’t schizophrenia, and I’m not having delusional persecution fantasies. I am just sick of it, and watching the people who are complicit to it. Cannot even fathom how they have been vocal about the Johnny Depp trial given the person they are and what they do. I don’t care if vagueposting about it looks crazy, I’m laying the groundwork. This is to foreshadow. There’s a reason there’s 20 thousand followers yet not a single hint at their identity, or any actual identifiable information or other accounts linked for that matter. Normally someone would link their main, right? This person is so calculated and manipulative in what they do. I guarantee you that they’ve already seen the lolcow posts or one of their shitty little terminally online lackeys screengrabbed, they used to camp here for inspo on how to mimic users typing styles etc and likely still are. I wouldn’t be surprised if they’ve already been cultivating an empty fake schizoposter twitter account meant to look like a real, unhinged person for future damage control to argue with themselves when this begins to circulate more. They’re very good with photoshop and manipulating screenshots as well. Lastly I will add that I will never interact with their posts, but I promise they’ll try to create a “woman” that does and try to deflect from everything. They might even use some Blaine-esque persona to derail this and make it seem like a random schizo has latched on to them, but they know the truth and continue to sneer and mock the women they’ve harassed, stalked, and victimized. This is my last rant about it unless it escalates enough, or til after I know it’s perfectly safe to dox them. They love to drop fake red herrings anytime they fear being exposed, or pretending to be aloof about it. If there’s ever any word salad posted about it on here, it will without a doubt be them attempting to discredit me. Their posts are much creepier with context.

I’m a practicing witch who mostly works in folk magick. It’s more of a family/cultural tradition and using herbs and things than doing actual spells, but I do those as well. My practice has allowed me to delve into my culture and pay respects to those who passed before me. I interact with my ancestors by leaving them food and drink out, but a lot of it entails little customs passed through the generations. I wouldn’t call myself a bruja per say (it still has a lot of negative connotations in Mexico where people still believe they eat babies) but I do use hexes, spells, charms and cleansings. It’s interesting to see the mix of indigenous and colonist beliefs blended into one over arching belief system, since Catholicism is a big part of Mexican culture and many spells include people like Mary. I love reading up the history of witchcraft and the origins of certain practices, I think everyone should pick up a book or two just because outside of magic I find them interesting reads. I think the history of certain mystical/religious practices helps understand certain cultures better. Many of my friends were non believers in magic until they came across me and started experiencing weird stuff. I don’t really care about men or larpers on tiktok claiming the word witch because I don’t really interact with many people as is, and I don’t use tiktok. People will still do whatever they want including using closed practices so I just ignore them. I’m happy just doing my own thing and being the weirdo who rubs an egg all over my sick friends.

It's interesting when you mentioned Catholicism mixed with the indigenous beliefs because I always grew up with a mixture of that magic. It's really fascinating how in Latin America the imagery is so mixed with christianity and is so unique.
Recently, I started to think very hard if I have some sort of Witch ancestors in my family or if I may have some sort of clairvoyance or some sort of connection to the realm of magic. Is there any way that I can know about this?

Hola nonita! Yo también vivo en los EU! My Spanish is actually shit I’m so sorry

I think everyone inherently has the ability to perform magic if they learn about it. I see people who practice witchcraft in the same way I see doctors, they’re never actually done with learning despite getting a degree. Reading about the things you’re drawn to can definitely help. I feel like our ancestors were always performing magic whether they realized it or not. Even in Catholicism there are elements that could technically be considered witchcraft when you describe it literally. Worshipping a god by performing a ritual where you consume his flesh and drink his blood is pretty damn pagan. Continuing your spirituality journey I think will help reveal more to you, like creating a dream journal or sitting in prayer/meditation. I am a big proponent of reading, so reading things like histories, rituals, and herbal practices makes a connection stronger to the ancestors you are tying to get to know. Understanding their perspective vs a colonist perspective helped me connect a lot as well (like how Guadalupe wasn’t a catholic saint to the natives but another goddess to venerate and an easy way to pretend to be catholic while still maintaining your culture). Sorry for the super vagueness, it’s just kind of a hard question to answer? I’m not sure how it worked for others, but this is what helped me. Also listening to stories from older people in your family might reveal something you didn’t know. Apparently my aunt is clairvoyant and my family has seen some fucky shit. You’re already there babe, just go out and absorb knowledge!

I don't believe in witchcraft, but I do think collecting crystals and reading tarot and such is inherently harmless. I just wish that people who did it didn't refer to is as witchcraft because it feels disrespectful to the history of witches and what women who were accused of being them went through. I think performing witchcraft as a religion like wicca isn't much better than believing in any other kind of religion, plus the pagan gods are inherently misogynistic. I hate the trend it has become, but since it's such a source of empowerment for young women nowadays it's hard to speak up about my frustrations with it. It's like we took something inherently meaningful about our past and reduced it to cute tik toks and expensive alternative clothes with fake crystals on them. People are free to practice this stuff, but don't grab a bunch of fake crystals from a shop reeking of incense and call it witchcraft.

When i was in Uni we went dumpster diving with my roommate because people were often throwing away wooden borads and stuff like that you can paint on. One time there was a gypsy family throwing away things and i found this small book of magic that was came out in 1920. I didn't even know there are books with lietral potion recipies, i thought it was just some astrology bullshit but it was full of things like: Wings of flies, pidgeon foot, raven liver, a whole bat and cook it on that particular day with the moon shining over it…. Some parts of the book are missing now. Anyway when i brought that book into our flat i started to have weird dreams about an angry ghost and supernatural shit was happening in there sometimes…so i wonder if that had anything to do with it. Couple of years later notohing weird is happening and i still have part of that book, it's pretty neat but written in an old fashion language so it takes me time to undestand.

Okay I got you. Let’s start with the easy stuff:
>> Salt and Ashes and Charcoal make black salt, ash makes it unsafe to eat. Put this in front of your doors to the outside to protect your entrances. Add red pepper for extra kick.
>> Brick dust keeps those meaning you harm from crossing the threshold good for old haunts.
>> Bells cleanse the air. Spirits can’t stand the high pitch ringing. So witch’s bells (bells) hanging on your doors to cleanse the air everytime the door moves. You can also put wind chimes outside.
>> flip your broom upside down to send company away.
>> if you want you make sigils for protection and draw or carve them into things.
>> use your preferred protection herbs to make a cleaning wash and wash your walls windows and doors
>> take white chalk and write protection runes on your doors, mirrors, hearth, and windows.
>> visualize your energy source in your body. Imagine it expanding to cover you like a layer of light entirely protected. Then push it to fill a room. Basics of protection work right there. Get good at it. It’s your will against whatever it is.
>> Bowl of water or salt under the bed to absorb bad. Change regularly.
>> Big spiky plant. Give it offerings and let it represent you and your home. Let it’s aggressive self protection give you protecting energy.
You can go for protection amulets and talismans. You could even make your own.
Do you need more or is there specifics?

No. 1346243

>>1346232
Adding because I thought of more
>> say hello and thank you when you enter and leave your home. You’ll make good with the house spirits that way.
>> slam the motherfucking doors if you have a ghost problem. They hate it and it will make most weak spirits flee
>> don’t name a poltergeist you give it more power and identity and it will use it.
>> shadow people don’t give a fuck about protections. Getting rid of them is stubborn will and telling them to fuck off and mean it.
>> you can give offerings to the local spirits. Do the ones that help and say thank you. The ones just passing through and thank them for being peaceful and respectful. Then one to the baneful and ask that they take it as a truce and sign of apology. Sometimes it’s not a malicious thing it’s just very “particular” and short tempered.

This is so fascinating for me to read. Are spirits and skinwalkers actual things or just metaphors for health problems and such? Are they related to christianity?

I have never done any of these things or ever encountered anything supernatural, but reading this I'm curious as to what people have experienced that gives them a need to protect themselves. Will spirits naturally only go for people who believe in them, or am I as a non-believer unsafe too?

also my mother taught me to say "You're not welcome here" to any presence that isn't welcome here, it might not work on nasty shit but at least it will send away non-harmful spirits that were just making you uneasy by mistake, which probably happens more than we realise, we're very sensitive to changes around us and not everything is as scary as it seems, like a mouse might alarm you a lot but its just running to its next destination and not actually there for you, if that makes sense.

I am the anon of this: >>1346202

Maybe I should explain my situation more? I feel regularly watched (since over 8 years, maybe even 16, idk). Funny thing is that I don't have this feeling everywhere, but I honestly think some ghost is messing with me (it got better, but a few years ago my room door would always open and close without a reason as the only door in the whole apartment, I feel only in some rooms and streets watched, some of my things were moved to spots I did not put them in, my things were until last year always pushed to the edge of my shelves etc. and this only happened to me. As I said before the messing with me got way better but it still happens sometimes). I feel in certain streets (especially some near my apartment) really unsafe (especially when it gets dark, even if the streets are not the bad ones). An old lady also died in my apartment (but I am very sure that I was being watched way before this) and I sometimes hear weird things (footsteps, but mostly the floor creaking) and see some shadows here and there

>>1346232
thank you so much for your help! Just asking in general if there is a good website for sigils and runes (because I don't want to accidentally write something down, which is wrong and maybe is harmful). And can you recommend any protection amulets or talismans, please? I googled it and so many different ones show up and I have honestly no idea and am a total noob

the old lady is someone I did not know though. I saw her only like 2 times and she was not really sane when she died (and she was rather miserable. Her husband probably also cheated on her but I doubt she knew it). She also died like 2 years before I moved into the apartment with my family. Also, the feeling of being watched existed way before she died. I also don't think I am cursed (or at least not badly?) but my father for example also experienced a lot of weird things (and a lot of unlucky things since like day 1) and I just want to be sure, it is nothing harmful. I will look up what a guardian imp is, thank you for your opinion

No. 1346366

>>1346310
Sounds like a poltergeist as far as the old lady. Like an echo. I’d leave her be and ignore her. Like a roommate you pass in the hall but don’t ever talk too.
The one talking about imps is the tranny, anon. Don’t listen to them. Algiz is the standard rune for protection. Looks like a bird foot kind of. It’s Norse. But I practiced traditional witchcraft in European and Celtic roots so it might very.
Chances are if your dad was sensitive so was are you and if you know it exists it knows you exist. The watching could be a lot of things anon. I’d start protecting and warding and building good relationships with the local spirits and work from there.
Sigils are very easy. Write out a phrase that makes you feel protected. Then only keep the distinct unique letters. The. Write 1-9. Write the alphabet in order under the 1-9. Match the letters to a number. Keep only the district numbers. Then make a clock with 9 numbers instead of twelve, a circle. Draw lines in order of the numbers in your phrase. That symbol is your sigil charged with your statement.
Do you mediate at all? Or have a way to read your cards or runes or bones or something?

Yes and no. I’ll answer anon. You seem nice and respectful.
Spirits tend to go after easy targets. People sensitive are easy targets. People depressed or mentally unwell or over tired. People on the brink of death. People that aren’t sensitive or are too strong will probably never run into anything unless it’s strong enough to “interrupt “ you. Some people live in a straw house. Some people live in a brick house. You won’t feel the wind in a brick house. But you’ll feel it when you open the window or an earth quake shakes the house. Same thing here.

You’re welcome anon ♥ and your mother probably did you a favor. There’s a lot of wonder and joy in magick and this side of the world but a lot of unsettling and potentially dangerous stuff too. Even in the mundane side of magick with herbal work and such.
If you want to exp the little “wonder moments” occasionally you’d probably need to go somewhere with high enough affinity/energy but go positive not negative. I can’t recommend haunted house ghost hunting for fun. But maybe a long hike on a mountain. Once you reach the top sit and see what the woods have. The sky. The sun. The breeze.

I would like a good luck charm or satchel for reassurance, either to attach, sew on, or leave inside, so I don't have to worry about losing it and freaking out over yet another thing. I always get anxious when experiencing new things and am not used to them yet, or thinking of what might go wrong between getting there/ throughout the day/ coming back (having to Uber with some random male 99% of the time does not help at all). Any suggestions what I should plan out? I'm thinking a satchel or embroidered border of significant things to me. I have fallen whiskers and clipped claw tips from my cat, natural fiber thread, rosemary from my plant, dried mint, and a bunch of pressed flowers.

Maybe make an effigy of you. Something that represents you to tuck inside? Your hair, a fingernail, a photo, whatever. Basil is also good for love, luck, and protection and bay leaves. If using a bay leaf write your intention in it before putting inside. Do you have a relationship with any spirits or anything if so five offering and ask for their blessing. You could make a sigil to embroidery on with the other things if you’d like.
You could make ones for different purposes. Make one that stays zipped in your purse. One for your car. One that hangs from the front door. Or just one total for general protection. If it’s small enough it can go in your bra.

Hey so i have nowhere to ask this and i know im probably going to get judged by anons and i know its weird so spare me the snarky posts but i just moved to a new city , where im lonely, have no friends, no partner and the people are awful here.

Ive been thinking of creating a ….imaginary friend to cope with the loneliness and depression. The thing is im kinda worried of the safety risks that come with getting a imaginary friend, because im using subliminals to manifest him faster and in the past i tried using a liminal for that and listened for a week and nothing happened so i was like ''this shit doesnt work'' but then a day later some weird stuff happened like my closet randomly opening or my arm being touched while i was sleeping, so im a bit worried what may attach itself to me if i fully try to create a imaginary friend.

These are the subliminals im planning to listen to, let me know what you think

I want to chime on this imaginary friend talk with saying that
> im still worried about getting something attached to me or losing my mind
As long as it is a fantasy and you know it is a fantasy, without trying to manifest that idea into reality, you will not lose your mind. You do not need any subliminals or techniques for it, just use your own imagination and daydream. Source - someone who literally spent their entire childhood and teen years in their fantasy world surrounded by imaginary friends. It is so natural to me, I even still have them (as sad as it is).
Imo tulpas are where it gets dangerous and can make you go coocoo cachoo. As a kid I researched it and wanted to make one too, but often tulpas just go sideways with their "independent" life and become a burden on you. You never know what will happen. Your tulpa can just switch on you and start shitting on you 24/7. I agree with other anons on that you shouldn't use manifestation or tulpa-tier techniques for imaginary friends though. Just keep them strictly imaginary lol

No. 1353585

I like your reasoning. I also had a bunch of imaginary friends throughout my childhood and early teens. Even now when I need to reason with myself, calm myself down or think through difficult decisions, I will pretend to have a conversation with an imaginary friend which really helps me sort myself out. I think that's very common and nothing to be afraid of, considering you're just talking to yourself in an elaborate manner.

I hope that I do not sound insane but I am begging for advice on something I really can’t ask people about..
how can I let someone go who has a hold on me? Lots of strange things have happened this year for me and I want to start my life but I feel as though something evil is holding onto me.

I’ll make a long story short but;
About last year I was asked to give a necklace of my blood to a partner of more than a decade, because we’ve been together for so long and was told it was a way of showing my love for them after months thinking it over and being bothered about it I finally gave In and did so and when my ex finally got what they wanted they left me and my life was hell.
This ex was toxic, controlling and a cheater but I ignored all of that because they were the only one I had, they wouldn’t allow me to have friends and put me down about everything. Every now and then I feel my chest is heavy and something is following or watching me I do a cleansing and that’s when I get random messages from my ex after months of not being messaged, they only do so when I can feel a bad vibe and cleanse myself almost like they know I can feel it or want to see if it’s working.
I admit I felt so scared that I did a “return to sender” and later that month after doing so I got the message “ did you wish me bad luck?” Which was strange.
Am I paranoid? Is it all in my head?

Another thing that has happened was when I was depressed I went to someone who did a reading for me, they told me that I would find someone who would act as my guardian angel, I shrugged it off not believing much then two months later I was randomly approached by someone who told me they felt as though they were my guardian angel..we hit it off and now I couldn’t imagine life without them.

I don't want to make you feel worse, but you should have never gave in and given them your blood.
