“If that which your seek, you find not within yourself, you will never find without” =Doreen Valiente The topic of initiation has been a hot button issue for some time now in the witchcraft community. There are some who believe that “only a witch can make another witch,” meaning that in order to be a… Continue reading On Initiation… What makes one a witch?
I’ve been a bad witch. No, I’m not hexing, cursing, or infringing on the “free will” (insert sarcastic eye-roll) of others. I’ve been a bad witch because I haven’t been doing the things a witch does.
