I have not heard anything bad about claiming to be natural witch. To me, it means you naturally already have gifts you can use. This is what started my search and me finding this site, and others. I wanted to know how to use them more effectively.
Now about the guide, true it does not babysit you. Your guide will come to you when needed, not before. You have the power to learn things on your own, do things on your own, and frankly don't need a guide to help you there. A guide is just that; a guide. If you are going in wrong direction, a guide may come to help. If you are in danger, magickally, your guide may show up in vision or dream. Mine came in dreams. You are strong and capable. Learn to depend on yourself. Hope this helps. Blessed Be...
