I Am...

I am a Witch, not a Wiccan.

I was born into it.... but my upbringing didn't have much to do with it. I have been blessed with many gifts (esp, mediumship, seeing spirits, stuff like that), as well as a deep knowledge of things I could not have possibly known at the age of five... when I would create a "bubble" (cast a circle) so i could talk to "the lady" (hello Goddess) and kind of make things happen with nature (I once requested to the lady for purple flowers to grow everywhere at my grandmother's house... and they did, and she never did get rid of them, tore up the lawn and everything... c'mon, I was 6)... I think I'll add my own story about that though.

I learned and developed other gifts as well... not spells, just ways to understand the flow of things and how to make that work for me. Never had to read a book about it to learn it, I just always knew things. Although I did stumble across a book (literally) when I was 12, and from then on realized who and what I was. -seriously, I was in the liabrary on the way to the fiction section. I bumped into a shelf and knocked a book onto the floor and tripped on it. I had to pick it up :P

Sorry, I don't remember the name of the book, that was almost 19 years ago.

These days, I share what I know, and try to help others develop their own gifts.

It's good to find someone like me who actually knows it. Sometimes I run into someone who is but they don't acknowledge it in themselves. More often I find people who claim to be "practicing witches" or "practicing witchcraft". I'm not exactly sure what that means. I am a born witch. The word is not mine. I only know that I have had an innate understanding of how certain things work since I was a small child. I use the term to describe myself because I know historically this word has been used in a derogatory manner to describe/condemn/cast dispersions on women like myself and in honor of all those that suffered for just being what they were I claim and reclaim this term as an honor. I hope to be able to chat some more with you.

LOL yes, I know what you mean ;)
