Walking With White Magick
Walking the magickal path is a joy, and one which connects us deeply with life, and love, and the wonderful cycles of our beautiful planet. It is empowering, but it also carries with it deep responsibilities; among them, to be ethical, respectful and to live, speak, and walk in integrity.
It is not a path for those who wish to dominate another, or who wish to ignore or remain blind to their own nature, conditioning, blessings and challenges. Nor is magick for those who wish to take more than they need. For true magick is at its heart about harmony, and about balance. Magick will reveal all of who you are, and in that revelation and honesty, balance, strength, joy and wisdom can be found, and worked with for your own self, and for others. Beauty, love, health, trust and acceptance are all side-effects of this wonderful path.
I am an eclectic witch (a practitioner who draws from a variety of belief systems and magickal traditions) who works with others, but most often as a solitary. I work with the word "witch" because its root meaning is to "change or bend" and "wisdom". Thus I see witchcraft as being a path of change and manifestation, from natural sources, and in harmony with natural cycles, and with awareness of the Laws of the Universe - which, to me, are wisdom incarnate.
I create workshops, and give a great deal of my time to speaking and teaching about witchcraft, which in my view is the ancient and indigenous path of Western Europe. It is consistently being reworked and recreated and my own experience has taught me it can be a very balanced path that acknowledges the earth and the heavens, and gives us the freedom to explore safely our full potential.
I call my path "white magick" to clearly differentiate it from those who practise black magick. I am not, though, denying the power of the dark and the light – they are, to me, quite separate things to “black magick” which is magick with malintent, that interferes with the free will of another, and which harms others, not simply humans, but all beings sharing the planet, and our Universe.
I believe our energetic patterns hold much of who we are, and that the quality of our energy will determine the quality of our physical, emotional, and mental lives.
