With this blog, I hope to share my stories and tips of being a witch in today’s world. Being a Witch comes with lots of questions, judgements and of course the stereotypes. Like any religion today, there are a lot of misconceptions and judgements that follow the stereotypes. I experienced a lot of those while I lived in middle Tennessee for four years. Most of the experiences happened at a certain job- I will not reveal the company for many reasons.With middle Tennessee being a Bible Belt area, there are a lot of Christian beliefs there that are rooted in their ‘Jesus is coming’ talks. I was accused of putting a curse on an entire department of older ladies. This came about because some coworkers and I were discussing some similarities and differences in our own beliefs while on break. These older ladies, who were a couple tables away, took it as we were putting curses on them. Honestly if I were to have cursed them, or anyone else, it sure would not have happened while I was at work. On top of that, I had no reason to curse them- they never did anything to make me want to curse them. Another time I was told I was going to hell because I did not believe in Jesus and was not ready for when he came again.
The biggest judgement I have gotten though, is from other witches. I have been told I am practicing wrong, that being solitary is incorrect and I have to find a coven to be a proper witch, etc. I have told those people off. No two paths are the same, no two people are going to have the same identical beliefs. You may have very similar beliefs and ideas, but that doesn’t make any one persons beliefs better then another’s.One of the best questions I have gotten was from another witch who asked what kind of witch I am. Being the smart ass that I am, my answer was that I am the magical kind. She was inquiring about my path more then anything.
