**Please read and comment i need feedback from our community it will only take five minutes out of your time to read and comment***
As from being a witch who finally opened his mind to the idea there is more to the witchcraft that fits the eye i would like to share a bit of information to maybe help someone else.
Being a witch is a pleasure we all take for granted because were simple humans that make mistakes just like everyone else, the only thing that makes us different is we follow the path of the ancients and attune our souls to nature and the unknown mo matter what you practice we all use the same energy no matter what type it is. Take time out of your day to be alone and meditate, shut your mind to the outside world and step into your soul and truly find your path, it wont be given to you, its taken me years to understand alot of things, as taking your time in the craft should. Yes its great to have mentors but in the end we need to learn magick on our on personal levels.
I have been hearing from our community alot of witches are changing in a way they cant explain (Trust me when i say i know a lot of witches). I have no real explanation to why this is going on nor do i know for a fact everyone is feeling this change, just ahunch. I just know if you are, your not alone. But i meditated on the subject and the only thing i know is, its not a bad thing. Were all connected to this world and what it has to offer, so when our world is changing we can feel this.
As being Witches it is our duty to protect this world, its time we finally come to the aid of our community keep a open mind and show the world we are just trying to be understood in this modern world. Honestly i don't think we understand that the world is being killed, and i believe its slowly killing our natural connection. Coming from a long line and knowing a little about our history we dont have the power Witches did ages ago. We have lost many great books , and people that should have been passed down and our modern world just isn't the place for us anymore unless we get our community as one again. Just one person makes a difference. Start a small group, help your community with anything that need attending, its the least we can all to give back to this beautiful earth for opening us to a whole new way of life.
Thank for your time i hope just one person understands where im coming from,

2013 is going to be an important and transitory year for us all. It doesn't surprise me to hear that witches are the first to take notice.
I believe that 2013 marks the beginning of a new era of religious and spiritual thought. People will be more receptive now than they have been in a long time to the creation and flourishing of new ideas, so if you haven't "left the broom closet," so to speak, now is the time.
Be open, be proud, and be the best representative of your respective faith you can be - the impression you leave now will have a profound effect in the long-term. This will result in two things:
- We will realize there are more of us out there than we ever knew, especially in local circles.
- We will discover more people who, while not practitioners themselves, are curious to know how it works. Nurturing that curiosity will help disperse many of the falsehoods and stereotypes perpetuated by many Western religious adherents (i.e. traditional Christianity).
I'm looking forward to it all.
Thank you for your inspiring post, Darkbarron. Blessed be.

This understanding and openness isn't as wide spread as you may think. I just got done not to long ago talking to a bunch of people who said if they ever found out somebody was a witch they would beat then to nothing. Witches are hated now a days just as much as they were, but the chances of you dieing are slimmer. I'm not a witch so I'm going to ask some questions to the witches. Why are you guys so eager to share your craft with the world? You don't think magick should be kept in secret circles like it's always been?

Thank you for your feed back.
I agree they are either ready or not, if each and every one of us played his/her part this could be done. We are either united as one or were not. Show them how much this world means to us, by finally ignore the names, the hate, and step from the shadows. Seriously were like not doing nothing in our communities to even show we care and that were not evil. One person at a time, one hour a week to volunteer time in animal shelters, highway clean, anything at all, to help us get a better reputation.
I do not know about the rest of you but im tired of living my life in shadows, when i know this modern world can handle what we have to offer.

I believe 2013 will be the start of a new era. The reason we all feel a weird feeling and our powers aren't asthey were years ago is because the world is getting darker. Now since the new year I have only heard one name while mediating... Samael. Samael is the archangel of justice and punishment. I have never heard of Samael until I started to hear his name while mediating. Then of course I looked it up.
Ergo the world is getting darker and we may have to all prepare for it.

Sweet Jesus. The angel Samuel/Samael is ancient. You hearing the name doesn't mean all that much.
Why is everyone reading so much into 2013? I absolutely fail to understand the hype.
If you don't want to live in the "shadows," don't. But spouting pride in one's faith is just as bad as all of the oppression others might inflict. Better to just do your own thing, speak up when it is necessary, and do the right thing. Spouting religion is obnoxious.
