Talking to some people on tumblr has revealed that I may be a hereditary witch or so. My mother did a LOT of rituals and things associated with witchcraft. Unfortunately, she died when I was seven years old. She lived long enough to teach me SOME things, but obviously not as much as she would have liked.
Interesting. I mostly attributed the rituals from the country as just a ‘country thing’. I was all fairly normal. Things like burying an egg after the chickens finished laying for the season. Leaving some produce behind in the garden. Mixing herbs together and hanging them up in the house.
I wonder what my life would have been like if my mother would have lived. What kind of things I would have known. If she had a Book of Shadows or anything similar, it was lost. A lot of things that belonged to my mother were kept by my father after her death. I’ve never been able to get anything more than a few pieces of jewelry that belonged to her.
I can’t speak for other households back in the country, but witchy things were normal up until my mother’s death. My grandmother who raised us never showed any indication of anything.
I outtah make a separate blog for this I reckon or else I’ll be spamming the hell out of my dashboard with all these random ass thoughts. Lol.
