Is it time to come out of the broom closet?

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.”
