My practice and belief is made up of some of my wiccan beginnings, appalachian magic, some hoodoo, traditional witchcraft, shamanism, and whole lot of what seems to work for me. I believe in a god and goddess, a duality, a constantly shifiting balance, oppposite but equal. When I look at the natural world this makes sense to me. Light and dark, hot and cold. Even when these polarities exist in one they are still recocognized as two halves of the same or the mixing of two.

Spirits and other unembodied entities are everywhere, some that exist here, some that visit here, and some that are stuck here. Like all things the majority of these entities just exist, getting by as they do. Occassionally you come across some that are really kind and helpful, and you also have some that are just plain nasty. Modern thought would have you believe that ALL these entities exist solely in one of these two states. Spirits and magic affect more around us than what most want to realize. Ironically people are aware of it but for years have told themselves such things do not exist so they automatically dismiss them. People are unnerved by their connection to deeper reality. They associate it with danger.

I am NOT a good witch, nor am I a bad witch (well by how most folks define “good” and “bad” now a days), hell I am not even sure I am a witch either. I will cast spells to help people, bring me success, give me clarity, I also will cast spells against people when they really piss me off. To give them a little bad luck. To give the ass that cut me off a flat tire or engine trouble. Then again, I may get a vibe off some one that says they did not mean to do that, or they have an emergency, and I will let it slide. In the end I trust my connnection with the universe to guide me.
