Real Ones~ )O(I have been attempting to locate real live witch persons to associate with in my area for decades. I have met with mostly "Mr. or Mrs.Tom Foolery" I have yet to meet ONE true "down to earth" ethical, sage, real witch woman (or man) in my local area that I can sit with over hot coffee and warm knowing smiles.
It's not that I am hard to please, nor am I a snobby witch. It's just that I am not a vampire goth or a pot head. I'm not a real hippie....I am a real reading studying daily devoted practicing witch, I don't even call myself Wiccan, I am simply a plain ole garden variety witch! Yes, Alice, there is a differense!
(By the way, if you don't already know this, we witches are not Satanists, we cannot be, this entity is not part of our spiritual reality) We witches are all about nature, the old ways, the ways of the ones that came long long before us. The ones that understood the wheel of the year, the turn, the bend, the wisdom of the natural truths of birth, life, death and rebirth. "As it is above, so it is below" there is an ebb and flow, a natural order to all of life.
Perhaps it's the word W I T C H? Is it this? Does the wonderful old beloved word conjure all manner of false impressions and gloomy stereotypes? I admit it, sometimes (especially at Samhain) I do play into the whole Halloween imagery just a bit with my black boots, striped socks, black capes and my black cat Salem. Let us not forget my big black cone shaped hat with it's feathery brim. Alright.... but come on, can't I have just a little fun? Who wants to be a "wise woman" all of the time? Sometimes I am a child too!
All I want is a handful of real witches to share the wonders of this path, to enjoy the glory of a full moon rite, or perhaps a handful of beloved sisters and brothers to celebrate the sabats (holy times/days) with. Just a few warm hearts beating in unison upon this strange and wonderful planet. Is this too much to ask?
If it were not for my precious EP witch sisters and a few non witch EP friends that are especially caring, supportive and kind, (and a couple of wise man brothers) I would be a very frustrated and somewhat lonesome witch woman, bless you all!
