You're a Witch? But you seem so nice!! All joking aside, Witchcraft, the Craft of the wise, is a deeply personal journey. Witchcraft is a journey of self discovery, self empowerment and growing your intuitive gifts.
Witchcraft means many things to many people, but what is isn't, is dark, evil, baby burning or devil worship. You heard it straight from Sandra Bullock in Practical Magic. "There is no devil in the Craft". Speak that truth girl!!
A reminder to readers that Christianity, Buddhism, Islam, Shamanism and Witchcraft is all connected to Source - All that Is. None of us are separate. Race, creed, gender or age, spiritual practice or who we choose to love. We are all connected. Read that again.
I started my journey in Wicca in my 30's. It was the answer to my Souls longing. That journey lead to my journey into Witchcraft. As is true with all of us, my practice grew as I learned. My journey became an eclectic mix of Water/Dragon/Shamanic Crone Witch. I am also a Drum Carrier and respect the teachings and wisdom of the First Nations Elders. I am Two Hawks Woman. I owe to the Elders, the deepest gratitude for all I have learned and felt along the way. The teachings of Elders and Grandmothers have opened my heart to truly understanding love for ALL CREATION.

What is a Crone? The real meaning of Crone is the Old Wise Woman. The Wise Woman were often the oldest women in the village or clan. There was a time in history when Old Women were revered and respected. Crones were the healers and the givers of skilled council. Christianity distorted the Crone and with time Crone became a withered old spinster. A woman not to be trusted. It was a way to strip power from the healers, especially women. The Crone upheld traditions and offered leadership. With an awakening of the Divine Feminine, and rise in Witchcraft, followers of the Craft are reclaiming Crone. Women are stepping into their power and finding balance. That's why I wanted to start this blog. It is a way for women and men to come together and honour one another. It is a way to create a loving, supportive community.
