Blog changes

In an effort to get this blog back on track I have simplified it, deleted some of the attached one-topic blogs
and focused on Sabbats and Esbats, which was the original intent.
Other writings will be in 'stumbling upon the path of the goddess'
and the Borrowed Book of Charms is still active.

Are you a witch?

Do you self identify as a witch, regardless of whether you ever use that term to describe yourself to others?

Why do you?  What makes you a witch?  Or why don't you?

Send  me your answer at pagantapestry@gmail.com
I want to print the answers I get as a group in a post.  I will remove all names except my own and I will give you my answer too.

  1. Shamanic healing focuses on energetic and emotional "spring cleaning" and then on bringing a person back to wholeness. We often travel through life dragging all our emotional baggage with us, but this is not necessary! We can leave it all behind us and move forward into a life of happiness and freedom, and liberate ourselves from our past through Shamanic healing.

  2. às vezes sim. Acho que todas as mulheres são um pouco bruxas, com suas poções mágicas, encantamentos, mesmo que só em pensamento.

  3. I am going to use a line from 'Witch' by Lady Isadoa. "I call myself a Witch because a Witch is what I am." I haven't always been so though. I was raised Christian. I think I converted to this path when I was a teenager but didn't know it yet. I began practicing the Craft about 4 years ago. About two years ago I finally felt comfortable calling myself a Witch, because that is what I am.

  4. I would send you a very detail answer if you leave my name attached to it, or if you explain why you will remove it. I like people knowing that I'm an Eclectic Witch and what that means. I believe that spreading the word about the beauty of our practices would remove some of the stigma. Email me and let me know magalyguerrero at live dot com.

  5. Magaly Guerrero, I would be glad to leave your name on what you write if you wish. I was just trying to encourage those who self identify as witch but do not want to declare it to the world to share their thoughts.

    i would say i am a witch, because when i look at the ordinary in life, it becomes extraordinary, magical, and enchanted. it makes my life magickal. hence i am a witch.

    blessings and light

  8. I think of myself as a witch, but don't call myself one to others. I feel that it binds me in a single word with my 'ancestors' who could also feel the sacred in mother earth... it feels like it gives me a history I don't have in my own path... I was raised a Christian, but never felt it in my blood and bones the way I feel the pagan path I walk today.

  9. I noticed this post, a couple of weeks ago, and thought it was a really good question. But I'm a man, and therefore a bit slow to come up with an answer.

    In my view, witches are necessarily women, so I'm ineligible to answer the question properly.

    But I did have a think about what the word means to me, and have posted an answer on my own blog, here:
