Is it time to reclaim the word “witch”?
Is it time for practitioners of this ancient ancestral practice to “come out of the broom closet”?
It’s a word — and belief — that has been embraced by some… yet mocked, feared, ridiculed, and worse, by others.
But for many practitioners, it simply represents an earth-based spirituality… living in alignment with Nature…. using Nature’s pharmacy for their well-being… respecting all creatures… and more.
What do YOU think?
If you identify as a witch (or any other term to describe your earth-based spirituality and practice), how do you share your beliefs — or explain them — to the uninitiated? What do you say to those who may have misconceptions about the history and practice of your form of spirituality?
I love Paulo Coelho’s definition:
“To me, a witch is a woman that is capable of letting her intuition take hold of her actions, that communes with her environment, that isn’t afraid of facing challenges.”
