I’ll be doing four prompts a week, on Wednesdays, tagged #WitchyWednesday on Twitter. I’m happy to clarify anything and respond to any questions or comments. Feel free to contact me as well! As for the prompts, they’re originally from a Tumblr post by user Baduhennasraven.
Here’s this week’s prompts:
- How do I believe magic works?
- What do I believe happens to us when we die?
- What rules, if any, do I live by when it comes to witchcraft and magic?
- Which things about witchcraft worry or scare me?
How do I believe magic works?
This is an interesting one. I believe that everyone has the potential to create their own future and magic is just one tool to use. It’s another form of prayer, and a bit of self-manifestation.
What do I believe happens to us when we die?
Literally? We decompose or get burned or buried, whatever way is considered personally best to wish one off the mortal coil.
Metaphysically? I believe in reincarnation, and the Summerlands. And ghosts, too, but that’s another topic all together. I believe we return to the All; that our consciousness moves on after brain activity ceases. We have souls, I think, and we are part of something larger than any one individual.
What rules, if any, do I live by when it comes to witchcraft and magic?
Rules are hard to say. I pretty much follow the “do no harm, take no shit” philosophy.
I used to be a stickler for “harm none”, but life is full of gray areas where it isn’t always possible to do that and be safe one’s self.
But other than to try and improve my life and leave the world a better place be it through magical or mundane ways, I don’t have many rules.
Which things about witchcraft worry or scare me?
I don’t know if anything proper “scares” or “worries” me about witchcraft. I think the potential to seek magical means when mundane would or should do can be a concern. If you broke your arm, you should go to a hospital first, then do a spell for faster healing or less pain.
That’s all for this week!
