« on: August 01, 2006, 04:15:46 AM »

Thank you all Monstrous people!!!!

A compulsion or need to perform it that I have had all my life from the begining of my memories.
Kind of like the need to express a talent.

pretty much, but it's hard for me to make it so simple...i had a lot of influence in my younger years through my father's side of the family...but i didn't actually claim the title of witch until years later, after i sought what i needed on my own...i think a person who can work with naturally occuring energies, manipulating them into manifesting personal improvements and desirescould qualify as a witch.

I agree with jordyn but sadly, so many people give themselves the title of witch just because they read books or know some spells by heart. Like one author in perticular that I will not mention  :x . Because there are natural witches (people who don't need rituals or lessons for things to happen) and those who learn. You don't have to be designated by a priestess or mage or whatever. It's like anybody can do it IF they have the "spark" in them. Because some try and try and never succeed. That's my opinion.

it's sort of entertaining how many people fail to seperate witches from wiccans though...i don't know if popular media is a blessing or a curse, on one had it shows witches aren't whore's of the devil hell bent on destroying humanity, but so many now view us as some light, fluffy "charmed ones" that can wiggle our nose and have it done, as long as it harms none.  :roll:

Hm, and when someone makes you sad, then suddenly something bad happens to those people? Or when the storm comes you can just smell it? And enjoy in thunder, just go out with this ....urge to dance and chant? And when, as a teenager, I was very upset, stuff falled of the walls, and cats just .....start to surround me and meow in that silent way, just staring at me? Or when I go to woods then some weird energy starts to surround me, like it was alive and ...  almost humanoid? But nothing big happens, only this small details I see when no one other can.....Where do I put  that?

well, it sort of fits the bill...;)

the difference between natural abiliies and actually being a witch however is that the witch aspect requires some sort of study, an attempt to understand and control such abiliites...while finding other energies to keep you balanced...it's pretty scary when things are imbalanced and out of control.

first you should decide what you want to have faith in...you apparantly have the abilities, but until you find a path to master them, it's just raw talent.  I'd suggest looking into some general new age material, they talk about dealing with the abilities, and focus on grounding and centering through meidtation, and have have a less occult like approach than many specific artists.  Go to a book store and browse the new age section, see if anything jumps out at you, an exploration into psychic abilities may help you figure things out to, once you decide on your spiritual path, it'll be easier to focus on a specific area of study.

Ok, this is what Im currently doing:
meditating, studying the occult initiations, keter, and train will. chokman, higher visualisation, balance, awarness of self, imagination, wish, mantring my kundalini mantra, body awarness...that kind of training, but it all stays in some peacefull trail, I go to the nature a lot, walk barefoot on forest land...the problem is I dont know the exact start, I just feel the urge to train, and to help

You had the advantage of having too many "bad" influences in your childhood. While I had to fight everything they taught me about magic about how it was evil, unnatural, required cruelness, can never be used for good etc because my heart screamed out that the information they were forcing on me was WRONG.
And people wonder why I rebelled so hard.

 *<:) Oh yeah? Check this out, when I was a child, my mother used to tell me horror tales before bed! Why? Because they made me laugh! At school, my favorite doll was a latex skeleton! I've been told that my great grand uncle had framed pictures of coffins in his livingroom and when he had guests, late at night he would get up and trow metal plates in the basement to scare them! I come from a weird family...our last name should have been Addams...

i think smith is appropriate...for my family, it's sort of infamous in the town i grew up with...everyone has a smith kid story or something one of my parents did, i don't understand why my mother couldn't relate to the things we pulled off, she was just as...wild.  :roll:

gotta love small town living, and meeting old friends of the parents in a bar.  :-o

I'd rather not go into it. Lets just say I had an interesting childhood.
