Hey Celt, could you help a beginning Celtic (read: white) witch out? I'm wondering if you've identified magical practices that have been really obviously (or subtly) appropriated by white witches that I need to be sure to avoid? I don't want to invade any closed spiritual/cultural spaces.
The really obvious one that springs to mind is smudging. Smudging is part of closed Native American practices, that involve a lot more than simply burning sage, which you’re not privy to unless you’ve been initiated in that culture. For those of us that are not part of that culture, what we do is smoke cleansing, or ‘censing’ if you’re after a more esoteric term for it.
Followers, any other appropriated practices to watch out for?
