Dark Rites And Marble Slabs

September 3, 2009

If the title drew you in ‘hook, line and sinker’, excited you and made your interest rise then I apologize for getting your hopes up, you have read too many books and watched too many films. This is reality, and the truth is far less dramatic.

Yes the scene is one of ritual, and the use of a marble slab would thrill most of us, however a ritual is simply the witch way of creating sacred space and then being in communion with the Goddess and communicating one’s intent, an altar is lovely but not essential.

As a witch the most frequent question I am asked is “Are you a black witch or a white witch?”

This makes me cringe as I do my best not to take offense, for I am well aware none is intended however my hackles raise………..

A gun or knife is only as good as the motivation of the hand that holds it; yet this question is not asked of the police, armed forces, or the medical profession?

It would seem that the ‘church’ has done an incredible job of character assassination over the past millennium, that now the whole world presumes witches to be a risk factor. The word ‘witch’ is Anglo Saxon, and it simply means ‘wise woman’, and back then every village had one, it was an esteemed social position, and she was relied upon her for all manner of help, from guidance as to when to plant crops, to assisting at births and performing the Last Rites. Before Papal influence reached our shores witches were valued members of their communities, intelligent and independent ‘thinking’ females.

Since then much water has passed under the bridge, and at last the world has seen fit to value intelligent , independent free thinking females once again, so isn’t it time peoples attitude towards witches moved into the 21 century and stopped dwelling in the Dark Ages!

So I will answer this million dollar question- black or white?

A witch is as good or bad as the person within; a witch works with the energies of the earth, which are an equal harmonious balance of positive and negative; therefore both energy sources are available and a witch can choose, as can we all, to do right or do wrong!

So my answer is “I work for the light; for the betterment of humanity”

As a witch I follow a code that has been practiced for 30,000 years, the respect and love of Goddess and I work with her ‘light’ energies to help and heal. I am not anti Christ, Jesus was/is (for me) another piece of the vast jigsaw of knowledge that has been gifted to us over the centuries, and he is one of the most recent, only a mere 2,000 years ago. I do not believe in the Devil, he is an addition given to the Christian faith about 1,700 years ago because the Christians felt the need to personify evil thus giving focus to a counterbalance to God; to have good opposing evil, God opposing the Devil.

But please note, by not believing in the ‘devil’ I do not discredit evil, it is most definitely present within the world; however I do not think it has the form of a cloven footed entity running around tempting folk. I perceive the evil of this world to live within the hearts of those who do not daily denounce it; we are all capable of allowing the traits of negativity to take root and grow within us. It is our duty each and every day to affirm our connection with the light and to live accordingly.

Recent conversations from friends and family, who have reported back to me, the views they have heard voiced by their work colleagues and neighbors, causes me much concern for it illustrates the level of total ignorance that still exists within the general public. It would seem that they either refuse to accept that we do exist, and continually think anyone calling themselves a witch is acting, or just a weirdo; or that we are anti-Christian.

Please if you are one of these aforementioned misguided souls and formally ignorant let me assure you most of us seek to help and heal not to harm. Most of us are quite happy to co exist with all other aspects of Divinity, for it is our profound belief that the spiritual journey one makes is a personal experience of growth and knowledge, that each must embrace in their own way.
