Thank you for the clarification, I got it. But I wouldn't say those things are considered myth by neopagans or 'modern' witches. It's all the same things just with different names. For example some call it astral projection, some OBE, some witch flight. The same applies to a lot of things. So I don't really get the point of secrecy. This also implies everyone can do it if you'll tell them how. If not, again, why hiding it?
Oh, kiddo, that’s just the basics.
What about shapeshifting?
What about things that people call ‘hollywood’ because they’ve never known anyone who could do them? Be creative, think about it, and question.
There are witches who have learned to do things that no one else needs to know even exists. There’s a reason that the really good ones don’t talk.
Or, there are those who lie and claim to know nothing of the sort. The same reasons apply.
Again, you miss the point. The understanding comes after sufficient power and skill has built. Before then, it literally will make no sense.
There are things I still don’t understand. And I won’t until I reach a point that the spirits feel it necessary to clarify.
The fact that you have to keep asking and making assumptions shows me that you wouldn’t be ready to understand these things. I’d tell them to you and you’d think I was joking.
There is no clean cut instruction because that’s not how these skills are handed down. It comes with a combination of testing, guidance, and intuitiveness.
Those secrets, all those terribly tantalizing secrets, are reserved for initiates in most traditions. Working in a spirit initiated tradition is no different. You really think that gods, spirits, and witches are going to be giving out their best secrets to just anyone? Really?
