My family keeps interrupting my rituals,spells,meditation,grounding,EVERYTHING MAGICAL!!!! I ask for privacy,but nothing. I live in an a apartment in a city,so no forest or backyard for me. I can't tell them that I need privacy and silence because I'm a witch,because they're hardcore Christians.
Magic and witchcraft don't have to be the same thing. I have nothing against witchcraft but you might consider telling your family that you need the privacy for meditation. Meditation is an ancient Christian tradition too and if they ask why tell them it is something you are doing to be closer to God. It isn't even a lie. The power I use comes from God, the Creator of everything. It is a common misconception that Christians can't practice magic. I am a Christian and I practice magic too. Some of my most powerful spells are given to me by the angels.
It's a small matter of semantics, but it might get your family to give you the space you need. And that way you don't have to feel like you're constantly hiding your spellwork from them. Just don't call it witchcraft. There are many names for magic. Prayer is one of them. What do you think people are doing when they pray? They're applying their will to the energies of the universe and asking for help from a spiritual force in making something happen. What is that if not magic?
