|I've always been interested in studying the Craft since a young age. I've always had strong intuition and premonitions. My mother has told me that our family is from a long line of Romanian Gypsies, who often did fortune telling along their travels. In fact she just gave me a deck of fortune telling cards that belonged to my Great-Grandmother, and are almost a hundred years old. My grandmother told me that our family also has ties to France and Austria, which might explain my being drawn to all things French.
My practice is pretty eclectic and I if I had to define it I would say I'm more of a Green/Natural Witch. I'm very interested in herbs, nature etc and most of the spells I do involved crystals, gems, herbs, candles and are mostly for protection, blessings and abundance/prosperity spells. I am a Yoga Teacher and Reiki Level II practitioner so other interests include meditation, chakras, angels, and I borrow from Buddhism and Hinduism. Some of the deities I work with are Lakshmi, Ganesh, Kuan Yin, Buddha, Archangel Michael, Archangel Raphael, Airmid, Apollo, and Selene.
I've always been drawn to being a healer, and it is what I am most interested in doing and learning. In fact in a past life regression I saw myself living in a small cottage outside of a village in 15-16th Century France. I was the local "healing/wise woman" and dispensed different herbs to the villages, as well as perform midwifery. Later I was burned at the stake for being a witch and a heretic. I know now that is where my interest and practice as a witch comes from.
I've joined here to find others to share with, make friends and learn more about subjects like herbs, spells, and divination especially the tarot and runes.
