WiccanChat Recap How to balance Wicca and Life

 

Q1: How long have you been practicing Wicca + How did you discover it?

Answers from the Wiccan Community: 

  • “I have always been drawn to witchcraft. Childhood fantasy. Raised very southern Baptist so anything different is of the devil. Found the courage to get my first book teen witch by silver ravenwolf at age 18. Wicca was a gateway to my spirituality as it is today. I have been on my journey for 12 years now.” @UmbreonKitsune 
  • “21 years! I told my mom I wished witches were real and she said “Well, they kind of are?” and took me to the library to do some research.” @FatFeministWitch
  • “Practicing for 10 yrs I couldn’t connect w/ Christianity for many reasons and so my mom got me a book on Wicca.zPracticing for 10 yrs I couldn’t connect w/ Christianity for many reasons and so my mom got me a book on Wicca.” @autisticwitchy 
  • “I’ve been practicing Wicca for 17 years! I was happy to have been introduced to fairies and gnomes at a young age, but I first read about it as a belief in DJ Conway’s Celtic Magic!” @kiza_design
  • “Not so much entirely Wicca, but I’ve been practicing my blend of styles for 6 years now. And I got dropped into the vortex.” @BreakdownGraphx
  • “Disc in college, started practicing casually about 20 yrs ago, can’t say I practice it now. Led me to ancestor veneration.” @madrabanrion

Q2: How well do you feel you balance Wicca + life?

Answers from the Wiccan Community: 

  • “I stink at balance. I go weeks when I don’t surface from my practice, then weeks when I can’t seem to get back to it I have daily rituals though. They’ve become habit. I hang onto those when I can do nothing else. Winter is my active season.” @madrabanrion
  • “I get two bursts of wild witchy energy every year, January and then DEFINITELY FALL. ??? I also get witch-lazy in the summer “ @FatFeministWitch
  • “Pretty well, now! It used to be a weekend celeb. Now I’d say I tend to find the magick in everything! Every action, being” @kiza_design
  • “I strive to find the magick in everything. I experience and learn more through every day practice rather than long formal rituals.” @UmbreonKitsune

Q3: Why is it so difficult to balance Wicca + Life?

Answers from the Wiccan Community: 

  • “I struggle with being able to share witchcraft and magick with others. I either have witch friends or non-witch friends.” @FatFeministWitch
  • “I am easily distracted by needy friends, husband, news/politics. Tend to give myself away before taking care of myself.” @madrabanrion
  • “The hardest thing for me is loving in the heart of the bible belt. While I do not necessarily care about others view of me, I do not want their views to harm my son’s chances at friends and life For that reason alone I try to remain closeted But ppl know I am different.” @UmbreonKitsune
