do you see where i gave up on colouring

New Witches

So you’re a new witch and wondering where to start, after all it is a massive topic, with many associated religions, paths, practices, where do you begin?

🌙 Read and research: pdf’s, library books, Amazon, there are now thousands of books at your disposal, have a browse and see what you can find that interests you.

🌙 Learn basics skills: generally there are some skills used regularly by practitioners: meditation, visualization, centering, grounding, energy manipulation, it is good to at least have some knowledge on each topic.

🌙 Look for correspondence lists: You can find them online for herbs, crystals, teas, candles, candle colours and more, and they are a great place to start.

🌙 Wait before you cast: I know of many new witches who gave up because their first few spells didn’t work. In many cases for a spell to work, it takes knowledge and if you haven’t learned enough yet, your spells may not work, you will know when you are ready and you may have amazing results if you take the time to build a foundation of knowledge.

🌙 Find a community: Whether it is a group of online friends on Tumblr or a real life group of witches, there are many safe websites to help you share knowledge, bounce ideas and grow as a beginner witch. (Real life covens are not recommended for beginners, some are questionable and many require long-term practitioners).

🌙 Don’t buy everything: To be a practicing witch you don’t need anything, only yourself, tools and other items can be bought gradually as you want them, you don’t need to buy everything all at once. 

🌙 Relax: You don’t need to be casting a spell every day to be a witch, you don’t need a witchy aesthetic, or to drink herbal teas, wear black, have a cat, be a woman, etc. Some witch’s cast only when necessary, others love carrying crystals constantly as their only form of witchcraft. Everyone’s practice is different, so don’t worry about fitting into a category.

🌙  Have Fun: If you hate what you are doing, don’t do it, learn something different, try another path, witchcraft shouldn’t be a chore, it should be something you enjoy.

Do you think the colour blue is a collection of everyone’s sadness?
One time I looked up & saw a little boy falling for the first time on razor-blade grass & there was no one to pick him up…
I’d build an entire universe with my hands if you wanted but what good would that do?
A world with silver rivers & no shoe laces because I know how much you hate tying them…
A world where space is just dark water & coloured dust & you can see seahorses swimming to different planets like you told me happened in your dream…
One time I looked up & I saw you…
Would you believe me if I told you I haven’t forgiven the moon for that time he kissed me in the corridor then disappeared the morning after?
When you think as cyclically as the mossy rocks the breaking tides gave birth to, it’s so easy to have your heart broken…
But she sees the scum on her babies- which is partly her fault, & she comes back…
Oh she comes back,
She always does…
I wish you’d do the same…
