Green Witches (MC)

Post by Vorrin on Thu Apr 16, 2009 9:39 am

I did not see a Wiccan or witchcraft board. So I put this here. I know some things, about whitch craft, earth craft. I see MC lists herself as a green witch. Can someone enlighten me as to the differences and what other color witches there are ? It is new terminology to me and I am curious.

Can't speak for her; not completely sure, but I thought it was kind of an environmental thing.

Actually, at least in my case it is a focus on natural spirits, out in the Green, Hedge Witch is similar. Although I interact and have reverence for the gods, (Especially my own) My focus is to interact and learn about nature Spirits. Tree Spirits, Spirits of the glen.
And the over seers of Nature.

Herbalism and Wild crafting, Shamanism Sort of a mix. I have focused my Witchery around the blessings that come natural, hearing trees and seeing nature Spirits. When they permit.

If I did not label my self Witch I could be mistaken for a Spiritualist, except that it is the Spirits of nature that I make my main concern.
Although all Spirits are of sincere interest to me.

I try to attune to them, And when I meditate more often I can. Trees talk to me anyway. I am truly blessed. So in a way it is environmental.You feel the pain man causes on nature. (shielding is so necessary).

I hope some of that made sense. Embarassed

In Asatru we would say that describes a Vanatru, or one sworn to the service of the spirits (wights) of the land. If modern paganism has a fault, it is that it came out of the Christian centuries with the god-heavy focus that was alien to our ancestors.

Honestly, the little spirits of the land and waters have far more intimate contact, and far more relevance for most folk. Hedge witches have never really disappeared in the back country, Catholicism concealed quite a horde of perfect pagan household and farmcraft magic under its bizarre mantle for many centuries.

When you get down to the basic spirits of the land, the similarity in practice between a whole lot of disparate faiths becomes really startling. I have faith that thousands of years from now, similar rites will quietly continue on whatever shores humanity steps to after this world.

I clearly work with the earth spirits that surround me. However I consider myself shaman and not witch.
For me there is no god or goddess. Just the universe that we are all a part of. While I do work with a lot of spirits, wild animal, local area spirits and plant spirits, rock spirits, and even a couple of ancestral (really looking for a better name) spirits. I don’t consider them some how above me (i.e. god, goddesses). I simply hear them and see them and interact with them, different but equal.
Of course shamanism is rife with animism. But in my own journey work (the reason I refer to myself as shaman) I wonder if it what I am working with are really differing vibrations of source energy?

I have no idea if this added anything to this thread?

Red Frog you always add something. That is how I view the natural world of Spirit or unseen beings. I revere them, I am in incredible Awe of them.

I have never thought about them being better, or not. thats just me I guess. But I am in Awe of them all of them Smile

And I suppose I really do see it in the way of the Shaman, which I study towards. Can't you (generic you) be a Shamanistic Witch ? Wink

Very Happy

I don't see why not???

A shaman is defined as "one who journeys" and/or "one who sees" if I am remembering correctly that is the original translation of the siberian word shaman.

I personally associate the word witch with god/goddess worship. Which is why I don’t use that reference myself (BTW, I did at one time). But of course shamanism is in no ways exclusive to that.
You are a polytheist, I am a pantheist. If you engage in intentional journeying then you are shaman.

Hey, Cap! Totally O.T., but when you finish Jane Eyre (that one got me all gooey!) may I suggest Villette by the same marvelous woman?

Is "gooey" a good thing or a bad thing? Smile

Gooey is sentimental and teary, at least in my case, but it is because you so deeply feel the circumstances in the book. It is like you are there experiencing it with the characters.

Hmmm.. you didn't really answer the question.. but I'll assume gooey is good, though. Wink

I was just playing with you, Maine. I knew what you were saying. No need to ask for forgiveness. Embarassed
