I had some philosophical issues with magick and spirituality in general in the past but recent events have come about that caused me to seek out a path where I can use my intuition and instincts. Coming back to the community just seemed like a natural fit.
While I'm a member of the Unitarian Universalist church and seek to uphold it's tenants (within reason, of course) I primarily self-identify as a natural witch. Magick comes easy for me. If I had to give my path a name it would be Pantheistic Witchcraft. I see magick as a force of nature. I won't pretend like I know it exists, I just feel it like one feels awe or fear or pain or elation. I respect the interdependent web of life to which we all belong. To me, that web in sum is deity and each individual strand is magick. Deity is in the mind but the mind is our reality. We make deity and in turn it makes us. I try not to overthink this stuff. I just do my best to honor the cosmos.
The web of life or the cosmos in sum. I don't look at deity as a person. It's beyond bodies and words. It's something you feel, not something you say.
Universalism, Pantheism, Witch
My name is Merywen (mare-uh-wyn). I am a 24 yr. old solo witch in Knoxville. I'd been in and out and all around but I think I've finally found something emotionally grounding in practicing that will keep me hear for some time to come.
