Idling

Feel free to stay in the chat room as long as you please. This is called "idling" and is frowned upon in many chat rooms, but is welcome in Witches Chat. A lot of people make the internet their home and social life. Other people may connect to the chat room with mobile phones and stay connected for days or weeks. This is fine.


Color and decorative text

Both encouraged and welcome. If you have creative knack and technical know-how to chat in the room using elaborate color and special ascii sets, then please feel free to use it. Some chat rooms discourage colorful text because it does not translate well on some older chat clients, however the Witches Chat room understands them just fine.


Age restrictions

The pursuit of answers and communion with people is not restricted to any particular age group. Although most of the people chatting in Witches Chat will be over 18, it is not uncommon to see younger people in the chat room. Everyone deserves to be treated with respect, and young people are no exception. In no circumstances may you use the chat rooms to start or continue sexually suggestive dialogue with any member under the age of consent (whichever age is highest between any geographic region where the hypothetical parties are located).


Trolling

There are some people that spend considerable effort making other people unhappy, challenging their beliefs, and using falicies to put people down. This is unacceptable in Witches Chat.


Spamming

If you have a web site that is relevant to Witches Chat and the subject matter we chat about, then you are encouraged to share it with us. Posting URLs in the room is fine, as long as it's relevant to the conversation or the room, and it isn't happening every 5 minutes. It is in bad taste to advertise other chat rooms–please don't.


Bad language

Not suggested. Vassago, the room bot, keeps a count of the number of "bad words" used in the chat room, and he has been known to take action if that count is excessive. Please don't use inappropriate nicknames.


Sharing spells and rituals

While some Pagan chat rooms prefer you to avoid sharing your spells, incantations, potions, rituals, and methods, this chat room will not impose such limitations.


Private messaging

Do as you please, but be aware that some people take offense to being sent private messages without first asking for permission to do so. Likewise, if you receive private messages from people that you do not desire to receive, you have the option of ignoring them.


Religion bashing

Putting anyone down is not an attractive quality, regardless of the reason why. Remember the Wiccan Rede: An Ye Harm None, Do As Ye Will


Fighting

Please don't fight with other people in the chat room. It turns everyone off and dilutes the good vibe of the room. Sometimes it's hard to convey emotion or real meaning in chat, and so sometimes things are misunderstood. If that happens, forgive people, give them the benefit of the doubt, and let it go. Fights will not be allowed to go on. We have several web sites that tap into Witches Chat, and they expect the room to be a place that their visitors can chat in peace. Please help us strive for that ideal.


Witches Chat used as a dating/flirting/pickup-room

There are plenty of chat rooms that specialize in dating, flirting, and meeting up. Witches Chat is not one of them.


Sexualizing the chat room

Keep the discussion of sex out of the chat room. If you need to, take the conversation to private chat. In no circumstances may you use the chat rooms to start or continue sexually suggestive dialogue with any member under the age of consent (whichever age is highest between any geographic region where the hypothetical parties are located).


Debate about Wicca and Paganism

Witches Chat is not a room to debate the validity of Wicca, Paganism, spirituality, religion, faith, psionics, or Witches. If you question our beliefs, faith, or Goddess and God, please do not join the chat.


Atheists and Agnostics

Do not inject, hint, or suggest that our religion or any element of it is not valid. 99 percent of all bans are directed at Atheists and Agnostics. If you do not believe in a diety, or do not believe that good should prevail over bad, then PLEASE DO NOT ENTER. Witches Chat is not a democracy. In Witches Chat, Witches rule. Period.


Drugs

No. Just no.

  It's been a while since I took the time to write down a post for you all! I hope you haven't forgotten me in the past week, I certainly haven't forgotten you. I guess I don't have anything enlightening or encouraging to say today. Only that I am feeling very blessed, and have felt blessed for a long time. I feel in control of my life, and in control of my happiness because of my spiritual path. I feel powerful (in my own way), with many options in front of me. I know that not everyone here has been blessed the same way as me, and that many of you feel helpless to tackle the problems in your lives. I have to say, all the ups and downs that I have lived through, and all the light and darkness that have yet to come I face with courage everyday because I know that without the darkness we could not see the stars! The universe lives by a single law of order and balance in that what you receive good or ill will be balanced with good or ill. And I know this means that sometime soon I will trip and stumble and fall for I am living in the light at the moment, but I will hold the warmth of this moment in my heart to make it through the times when I fall down because life is beautiful in all its ruthlessness and all its sweet gentility.

  At the closing of my blood moon ritual I stood with my arms open red wine splattered the ground at my feet as I have thanks to the universe. As I stopped to hold my breath and take in the beauty I heard an echoing crackled high pitched howling moving through the canyon. When I finally drew my breath in I felt a sphere of energy sitting atop my palms. There was no fear in my heart as I accepted this infusion of energy and drew it in towards my body. The sound I heard was unworldly and unlike anything I have ever heard. I awoke the next day still infused and invigorated from my blessing.

If you and your friends are comfortable with the choice, go for it. As a hereditary witch, I
do not proscribe to the new age religions. They seem to borrow from Eastern Philosophy,
Christianity, and some seem to just make it up as they go.
As to the Harm none I don't follow it. Sometimes it is necessary to harm to heal.

  For our king by serenemoss enjoy! -note:- a small part of a huge writing process i am working on. =)

"The sun began to peer out from the horizon, many men gathered infront of a single man. Some men had fear written across their faces for they had no idea of what was coming. Clouds started to roll over the men. A storm has started. That single rider rode back and forth infront of the men, once he noticed them all watching he began to speak:

" Lords of these lands lend me your ears, for this DAY we shall win this fight.. Not from fear... but from power from our trusted noble gods! For they have given us the strength to make it, They look upon us for hope. Our enemy will Not be taken lightly, We shall not hold back!"

He reaches down to his side and slides out a emerald green sword gleaming from a single ray of sunshine, As rain begins to beat down on them.

"This day, Is for our KING, and the glories of our gods! Long LIVE OUR KINGDOM!!!"

The crowd of men cheer and draw their swords. Booming with power they charge swiftly into the enemy, Showing no mercy. With every slash, the thunder cracks fiercely and the howls of the winds roar for the mens power. one man falls off his steed and slams into the ground. Covering himself with mud. He looks up into the sky and sees a large shadow. As he starts to back up to make up an idea of what it was. One enemy flanks upon him. but as the man goes to slash his sword. A burst of flames ignites the withering grass, guarding the man. As he tries to back up and move away, a loud slam behind him, startles him into turning around and seeing for the first time a massive dragon. He quickly swipes his sword at the dragon, but the dragon just backs up missing the swing and gives the man a small push to the army and whispers:

"For our king...."

  The word demon was twisted by Christianity as all evil beings by time.
But the word came from the Greek "daemon",which meant guardian spirit!.
They resembled fairies in Celtic lore.Having their positive and negative traits.

mysticwitch_hp

The Ancient Greek word δαίμων daimōn denotes a spirit or divine power, much like the
Latin genius or numen. Daimōn most likely came from the Greek verb daiesthai (to divide,
distribute). The Greek conception of a daimōns notably appears in the works of Plato,
where it describes the divine inspiration of Socrates. To distinguish the classical Greek
concept from its later Christian interpretation, the former is anglicized as either
daemon or daimon rather than demon.

The Greek term does not have any connotations of evil or malevolence. In fact, εὐδαιμονία
eudaimonia, (literally good-spiritedness) means happiness. By the early Roman Empire,
cult statues were seen, by pagans and their Christian neighbors alike, as inhabited by
the numinous presence of the gods: "Like pagans, Christians still sensed and saw the gods
and their power, and as something, they had to assume, lay behind it, by an easy
traditional shift of opinion they turned these pagan daimones into malevolent 'demons',
the troupe of Satan..... Far into the Byzantine period Christians eyed their cities' old
pagan statuary as a seat of the demons' presence. It was no longer beautiful, it was
infested." The term had first acquired its negative connotations in the Septuagint
translation of the Hebrew Bible into Greek, which drew on the mythology of ancient
Semitic religions. This was then inherited by the Koine text of the New Testament. The
Western medieval and neo-medieval conception of a demon derives seamlessly from the
ambient popular culture of Late (Roman) Antiquity. The Hellenistic "daemon" eventually
came to include many Semitic and Near Eastern gods as evaluated by Christianity.

The supposed existence of demons remains an important concept in many modern religions
and occultist traditions. Demons are still feared as a popular superstition, largely due
to their alleged power to possess living creatures. In the contemporary Western occultist
tradition (perhaps epitomized by the work of Aleister Crowley), a demon (such as
Choronzon, the Demon of the Abyss) is a useful metaphor for certain inner psychological
processes (inner demons), though some may also regard it as an objectively real
phenomenon. Some scholars believe that large portions of the demonology (see Asmodai) of
Judaism, a key influence on Christianity and Islam, originated from a later form of
Zoroastrianism, and were transferred to Judaism during the Persian era.

  Wiccan misunderstanding of black magick:

First of all ,some wiccans understand black magick as a magick of disposing the negative(like the magick of the new moon cycle),some like to describe defensive magick as black.
Second,Wiccans mainly don't acknowledge the existence of negative energy.They have a light perspective of the world,although they believe in the balance off darkness if they don't embrace it.
They believe that nature has wisdom and everything is as it should be.
They believe that even if there is evil,it is only shortage of good.If there are demons ,they would exist only outside what we comprehend and perceive as reality.!
The cross roads in a comparison with Wicca,is that wiccans believe that magick is not white or black,its both because nature is both.The witch makes the magick white or black.Even the Gods are light and dark,some has an equilibrium of both,and the stage of misunderstanding something because its ferocious is over!!.
They mainly describe the white magick as healing,protective,magick for helping others in all affairs of life,although not in love ,but I'll explain that in detail later.
As for black magick,they believe it is malevolent.
Some Wiccans believe black magick -which is magick with the intent to harm others in order to expand your own power or have the life of others or cause harm on their expense for you to reach a purpose-is not true magick ,but it is sorcery.Because in this process it is isolation from the collective consciousness.
The results will be swift and fast,but even destructive and to the witch him/herself.
At that point they are right.
You see,wiccans believe true essence of magick is holy,it is from nature,but a magick coming from within the soul for personal selfishness or from demonic forces is draining and not real magick..
To some point they are right about the draining part,yet it is exactly like white magick has its dangers.A white love spell of magick according to wiccans can turn black,because you are controlling someone's will!.Although they allow love spells that rekindle passion in a broken situation,but not those that hunt a stranger against his will.Wiccans know that a spell to have a job can turn to black,because the universe is not a machine ,and someone can lose his/her job for your sake to have their seat!.Some one can die for a money spell in order for you to have money and inherit the deceased.
So,I think wiccans know that magick is grey,what can be thought as white can even turn black!!!! without the witch knowing.Simply because magick is not precise if your not careful what you wish for. some of them also say that black magick is a power that needs to be charged over and over,because its source is a draining spirit,but the true divine essence of magick is constant.
Nothing maybe constant in life.Magick is unstable.
A spell that one witch may try,may not work for another.Magick is not just about nature,itts about the will.
And the power of the will is the main aim of black magick,as for white wiccan magick is about harmony .
That's why the dark craft is empowering ,yet indeed it could be draining.
Its true though that if you are not ready for the forces you handle,inner or external,they can drain you,cause obssession.
But what WIccans need to understand that the black craft is not bloody.
Wiccans misunderstand the demonic,thinking of it in the same medieval pattern.
They don't know that black practictioners have rules too!!.
Wiccans have their rede.Im a witch ,but not wiccan ,yet I respect it!.
ALthough ,I think some of them should learn more about the dark crafts and its levels before judging,the same as they expect from CHristians about Wicca!.
I thin the rede is something we need in this age,human intelligence and nature is not pleased witth harm.Altthough if you ask me ,I think humans are the cause of evil,not nature.
If nature does something violent,its a reply.She is simply restoring her balance!.Who can question why the lion eats the lamb?? maybe our violence increased the defensive nature in animals!!!.Maybe anyway its about recycled karma.WHo is to judge why the black widow kills her mate after sexual intercourse??
It is the eternal wisdom of nature!!.
So ,dark witches learn from the dark,but it doesn't mean they wish to inflect harm.
Some oof them are vegetarians,they don't use blood sacrifices.
Indeed dark magick is dangerous.
I do respect WIcca,Really!.But there is magick deeper than chanting around a tree.
I do respect the life in nature,the wisdom of trees,the souls of ancestors in stars,the animal life,karma,light and life pleasures.
But also chaos,darkness ,ego is not something outsider or illusional.
Wiccan witches are more centered about that harmony,light,healing,but I've seen magick where you feel the entity of real beings,their touch,they even move things!.
Visions.
The light path is telling to run away from ego,chaos,darkness,but that will empower all these things.
Instead you should bring them to the light.
That is black magick.
The last thing is that dark witches have rules too.They do realize dark magick is destructive.Just like wiccans have their rede,in dark magick ,Michael W.Ford for instance in book of the witch moon says:"Do whatever you can get away with".There are limits to dark witchery.There is more caution that demands more wisdom than in white magick!!.
And again ,Wiccans themselves realize that destruction only gives place to new beginning.They understand that cycle.
Negative energy shouldn't be judged.But each to their own craft.Wiccans shield themselves with circles,to make a barrier with the unwanted,but the meaning of "Sorcerer" is in fact "to encircle".)O(BB.

Agree.)O(.

Elder

This is a hard one. There are other way than turning a check, but those ways don't necessarily have to come in the form of spite or anger. Imagine fire, it is a great power of change with the capability of warming your hearth or burning your house down. Use your anger or frustration to create avenues of positive change in your life and in the lives of those around you. So maybe you can't react violently, and maybe reacting in anger is counter productive to what you desire to achieve in your life- find a different reaction that gets you what you want with a positive outcome. In my faith, when I find myself in a particularly difficult or nerve-wracking situation I ask the divine for guidance. For me, It almost always comes immediately- either through a friend reaching out with some unexpected advice, or something new brought into my environment that makes a difference to the problem. Sometimes nothing happens at all, but because I am personally working towards a solution I manage to work it out myself.

You don't need to fight fire with fire, there exists in us particularly a great capacity for taking on the quality's of other elements. Just be open to guidance, and don't give up! Don't forget that you are not alone, and that whatever your dealing with- there is a support group here to help you through it.

  The greatest thing is.... Most people have told me to ask others about the Wiccan path. But more and more I do my own discovering the more I realize that isn't the case. You don't need to spend hours and hours asking people about the path. Usually they won't tell you much anyways unless you get tied into their coven. And only boosts up their ego. True wiccans of how The god and goddess are wouldn't charge you. Or make a fuss of whatever you needed to know. So instead of boosting others ego and making them feel like they are gods themselves. Please realize you already have the answers at your disposal. Plus your intuition. And if you get lonely like we all do "humans" then look to the stars and feel the greatness of them then you'll realize you don't need others to guide you, that is something no one would ever tell you. Like myself. No one told me I had it all along. Sounds silly but you do! No need to spend hundreds of dollars on Wiccan classes. Just read some good books. Be active in nature. Enjoy life. Make your own spells and harm none. Never settle for less than the best. From small things to your company. Stressed out. Find something to relieve it. Sad.. Do something fun you never tried before. Angry... Try to meditate. So much in life is already answered for you. So never put yourself down. Bright blessings! )0(

sometimes i have kool thoughts this is one i'd like to share.
i was staring out my window, spacing out, and then i saw like energy sparkles over everything-like the Tao or the Universal Energy and i sensed it pulsing like the blood in my veins. Then i thought well if it moves something is the origin for this movement-like the heart in my body-and then i saw this huge red heart that had golden rays coming out of it and i understood it to be the Source of this pulsing Universal Energy and it was love. So, i thought well how did this come into existence? And my next thought was that it felt love and connection to everything so fiercely that it willed itself into existence.

  Dance with me my darling,
Dance with me till morning.
We can still see the stars
Though the clouds above are storming.
And they may call us crazy
For dancing in the rain.
But we know every drop
Will wash away the pain.
Because in this moment,
This here, this now,
There is light inside us,
There are no clouds.
They say time heals all,
But hope is the bandage
That binds us together,
That helps with the damage.
And when nobody else wants to,
No one can see the scars.
Together we will battle,
Until the world is ours.
Dance with me my darling,
Dance with me till morning.
We can still see the stars
Though the clouds above are storming.
And they may call us crazy
For dancing in the rain.
But we know every drop
Will wash away the pain.

  I'm in a room so tall it seems to never end. It's outsides are furnished with antique seats; the wood hand carved and lined in gold. It is nighttime and the space is illuminated by candlelight and what seem to be stars. This room of sorts is so tall, the ceiling can't be seen. There's towering bookshelves that line the circular walls, only breaking for passage ways to other faraway places. There is elevated seating areas made out of dark sweet smelling wood that cast circular shadows on the library floor; these round study areas seem to be placed in a way that would resemble a spiraling staircase, just as the bookshelves become part of the walls and rise almost tilted inward. Bright turquoise and salmon coloured vases sit on tables made of stained glass and gold, and as if to protect it all, powdered gold and dust coat the floors and top the furniture, the particles sparkling like amber underneath the candlelight.

This was a dream I had this past December, I was very surprised when I could remember it almost perfectly.✨🌙⭐️
Though I still don't know if it means something...😔

  I am working on a second chat room. It needs a lot of testing. It will allow information from the website to the chat room to flow freely (like pentacles). It will allow people to post pictures in the main chat, as well as YouTube video's and wav/mp3 sounds. Currently, when you post the full URL to a wav or mp3, it will play it for everyone. When you post the full URL to a picture (jpg, gif, or png) it will display it in the chat room window. Same with YouTube vids--just post the full URL to the video and it will display the video and allow people to watch it and chat at the same time.
In the new chat room, I don't foresee a bot like our Vassago or Elphaba, but I will duplicate all of his current functions. Today I added the simple "hug" command. Type /help to see all commands so far.
I expect to continue working on it until all of vassago's commands are implemented as slash ( / ) commands. This chat room will allow graphic answers to commands like horoscope, trivia, runes, and so forth.
With broadcasts, it will be possible to watch the broadcast and upload pictures or share them with direct links.
This new chat room is accessible on cell phones and other mobile devices. It will not be accessible via IRC. To enter it, you'll need pentacles. This will greatly reduce trolls and proxy issues. It will very very slow going for months, I'm sure, but eventually it will prove to be a much more effective medium to chat in. If you'd like to help test it and report bugs, then look for the option on the neft sidebar called Chat Now (Testing)

  For those who seek healing through spiritual means:Before you start any alternative medical technique, be aware that many have not been scientifically evaluated. Often, only limited information is available about their safety and effectiveness. Each state and discipline has its own rules about how alternative medicine practitioners are licensed. If you decide to visit one, choose one licensed by a recognized national organization. Consult your primary health care provider and keep your doctor informed about the alternative medical technique you undertake.

  Today I hope to encourage you to face your fears. I'm referring to the ones that everyone gets when dealing with other people. The voice in the back of your mind that reminds you that its weird to laugh too long or that you might be judged if you speak your mind. As far as most of us can prove- we only have this one existence with this consciousness, and with these people around us. Don't hold yourself back- enjoy life, enjoy living. Surprise yourself by doing something you would never normally do because you were afraid. You never know what amazing opportunities will come to your door.

As you grow older, you realize if you are not yourself with other people are being dishonest.
I have always spoke my mind, never worried if I laughed to long because that is who I truly
am. If I have developed a fear, I face it. Never ran from my dark side, it's part of who I
am. Enjoy challenging myself. You will get to a point in life when you understand: the
people who matter don't care and the people who care don't matter.

  Desiderata

Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.

As far as possible, without surrender,
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly,
and listen to others,
even to the dull and ignorant,
they to have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons,
they are vexations to the spirit.

If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain or bitter,
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

Enjoy your achievements as well as you plans.
Keep interested in your own career, however humble,
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs,
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is,
many persons strive for high ideals,
and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love,
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment,
it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars.
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with your God,
whatever you conceive him to be.
And whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life,
keep peace in your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

Max Ehrmann

  Pagan Priesthood,magick and the service of gods:

Traditionally acknowledged and repeated fact,that (Pagan) means lots of things to many people.Especially with the revival of ancient religions,occultism and magick.And the three can be highly connected or separated.
Not all pagans are witches.Not all witches are pagans.Not all Pagan paths agree with the practice of magick,for instance the Norse believed that magick is a feminine craft,a man who would practice magick is blamed,ridiculed and considered effiminate.Loki ridiculed Odin for practicing magick.Modern pagans use Norse means of divination like runes.
The ancient Greeks considered magick to be irreligious.Although Greeks had all honor in battle,but in love they would do anything even the use of magick!.Greeks used magick in love,sex spells,curses,necromancy.
But despite of that all these ancient religions to some degree had belief in animism,or at least the idea of connection to all things.Although some of them refused magick,but the chants that were used were deities names!!.
Magick in ancient Egypt was defined as compelling the force of the Gods themselves!!!.Magick was equal to religion,it was not just used in funerals and the underworld amulets and rites,but in daily life.
Priests were magicians.They used magick for protection,healing.Also private practitioners who offered their service for money existed.
So the question asked constantly ,how to be a witch? is to be answered after knowing the affinity you have ,what is making you interested in witchery??
Modern witches believe in reincarnation,and that magick is a power and science holy above all.And that (Once a witch always a witch).Magick is sympathetic,it is inner power and divine to some traditions.
Its an inherited wisdom.By time your craft will shape itself,and also you will set your own rules and codes for practice and life.
Returning again to the matter of magick and its connection to the Gods,..Gods may or may not be essential to modern pagans worship.They may be real to some or symbolic.Your experience is the only judge that should judge your belief.If this is a personal path and truely spiritual,which modern paganism is supposedly is.
Pagan of course may mean ,Goddess spirituality to some,it may mean mother nature spirituality.
To some others it is animism.To some it is believing in many Gods and Goddesses.To some it is anything not abrahamic;Judeo-Christian or Islamic-any monotheistic religion.The word itself with no argue meant literally Country dweller!.
So Gods may or may not be essential.
To me they are.And from previous posts you may realize my view of them.To me being pagan is to worship old Gods.Gods are allies,though they must be respected.They are energy just like us.They become more powerful by the dominion we give to them through devotion.They feed on worship.Yet in a way they don't need us.They are ascended masters/heros.
They can take physical form,through you above all-literally-,at least if you believe so.But however,even if they are real,they are not like humans.So you have to know and recognize every God while dealing with him/her,know her myths,her stories.If the worship of this God is becoming draining or demanding,you can put your terms with the God.Or deal with him/her only on a limited level.There is always a choice for man to make.
All these secrets about dealing with the Gods were known among ancient priests.
The old paganism was centered around the Gods,unlike modern free spiritual paganism.
A priest in the old times knew all the secrets about his/her God /ddess.Including his/her secret name,which is source of power.So being a priest meant a consecration to a deity.A life of service,and according to the form of the religion or the identity of the deity,it may also be a path of knowledge and mysteries.
Modern spirituality wants to unveil these mysteries.Its why the special meaning of priest may be attacked.It is said that all people are priests,though I may disagree.Because the term itself may be interpreted differently ,to solitaries or covens.I guess also the Christian heirarchy may have caused this denial of labels or degrees.
The priesthood differed among many in old and modern times and throughout cultures.
A priest in ancient Egypt was a vizier.A minister to the pharaoh.The pharaoh highly regarded the priest's advice.The priest was anointed as one after many years of studying and perhaps celibacy,and a life of seclusion.The test was not by men ,but by the Gods.The priest was taken to a chamber inside the sphinx to be tested by the Gods,in a test in which its difficult to differentiate truth from illusion inside the dark room while having visions.!Oracles too were highly appreciated for their wisdom.Like the oracle of Delphi who was visited by people from all over the world ,because the oracle received direct prophecies/wisdom from Apollo.
The priests of Rome were part time or all time devotees and servants to their Gods.
A priest/priestess had many degrees of evolve,but by summing it up from many yet probably not all traditions,it was not a title,it was not just a religious task,it was a political duty ,to heal the community,to be an advisor.Much like shamans were seen in their community,they helped and healed through their knowledge of the spirit and the other world.The druids were a classy degree of priests in Celtic society,they were healers,teachers,poets,artists,philosophers.The priest was a vessel to graces of the Gods,an intermediate like the oracles were.The mythical character of Medea,the high priestess of Hekate was said to be gifted with prophecy.She helped her land and her father to protect the property.So in some cases,it includes gifts from the Gods.And this is something acknowledged in modern pagan community.That sometimes our paths chooses us.The Gods choose whoever they wish!.
The priesthood of Ishtar in Old Mesopotamia had seven degrees.
The degrees in modern paganism/wicca are three.
Modern priesthood can be of dispute in such a free community.Because of the openness of the community and the free will,many people can claim to be what they want.
Its what causes schisms among the sons/daughters of one tradition.
A third degree high priest can actually start building a path of their own!.
The pagan community may refuse labels,or one tradition refusing the definition of a label that another tradition has!.Its natural.But its all about what your duty means to you above all,that is if we are truely spiritual.90% of the spiritual are eclectic/solitary/non denominational.Which causes the gap,but creates the responsibility.Many practitioners call themselves what they wish.Be what you wish,but bear responsibility of what it means to you.Its the same as even some Christians say,they say the word of God can mean many things to many people.Interpret it but on your responsibility.
Labels are natural to humans,they in fact need it,its what rules their world even if they deny it.If people deny labels,it is only a claim in order for all of them to set their egos aside to be able to work together!.But people never give away what they are.Its also sad they rule by appearances.To me being a witch/pagan /priest or anything else,is not previlige.Its who Im.Its not separated.
Its what shaped my personality today.
I don't try to explain it to every person I meet.People are all busy in their own affairs.
Do what thou wilt,would include the free will to others too.
Actually in some traditions,you are not to reveal the secrets you know!,or answer the skeptic about the grace given to you.

  Taking the God/ddess form -Khepru:

Some Wiccans may not believe in the possibility of possession!,or what is known is taking the God form in modern Wicca.
It seems that WIccan witches may believe in the latter,and they practice it while drawing down the moon-when the witch acknowledges herself to be Hekate on earth-,but they deny the first.Which means they acknowledge both to be different.
Witchcraft is very wide,and Wicca is called the religion of witchcraft,although there is debate about being an old religion,the point is not all witches are wiccans,and so the matter may differ to other traditions.
Gods/ddesses in Wicca ,may be believed to be manifestations for one male God and one female Goddess.
But to the re-constructionists of specific pantheons and cultural pagan systems its different.
The celts refuse the idea,so does Hellenic polytheists.They acknowledge their Gods to be different from any other.Each God/ddess is independent,they are real literally!,they are unique in characteristics.
Although its true historically that some Gods developed to be other Gods.Serapis was a cultural combination of three deities,Dionysus,Osiris and Hades!!!.Greek and EGyptian Gods blended.
Isis was worshiped among the Greeks and Romans although she is Egyptian in roots.
The Romans realized that their Gods/ddesses were the same Greek Gods,but only with names varying;Zeus(Jupiter),Hermes(Mercury),Aphrodite (Venus),Ares (Mars).
So people may see Gods and Goddesses differently,and so deal with their energy and essences in different ways.
Some WIccans acknowledge Gods to be states of consciousness.Other Wiccans are even atheistic.
Possession for some practitoners experience and in Shamanic context is being possessed by mere energy,although you may still have sense of your personal consciousness.
The ancient Greek magick didn't realize taking the God form or transformation to the image of a deity,nor did they believe in compelling a deity!.Simply because even if the Gods can be approached ,yet there is a gap between the realm of the divine and man.
But ancient Egyptian magick believes in taking the God/ddess form.
In fact it is mainly an ancient Egyptian style.The Hermetic order of the golden dawn adopted it.
It is said that Hermeticism along with Gnosticism have high influence on modern occultism.
Its also believed ,though its a matter of doubt,that Egyptian magick influences all style of magick.
Any way,Egyptian magick,inculding many Hermetic rituals adopting Egyptian elements,acknowledge becoming the deity itself.The source of power and fulfilling the magus purpose is through affirming that the desired wish is already a reality!,and through affirming that he /she is a specific deity.
Im Amon!,Im Osiris.Or in the Hermetic LBRH: The sign of Osiris slain,the sign of the mourning of Isis,the sign of Osiris risen,while doing certain poses!!!.It is named Khepru among Kemetic re-constructionists .

  No matter what you think or may conclude about Greek Gods and Goddesses ,but they are not evil.
They weren't always,not all the time.
The ancient religions had a different perspective about Gods and Goddesses.A belief that may be of use in this day and age,instead of the modern Christian notion about what a God is- a man who is opposing himself,threatning by punishment to all those who don't worship him,but claiming to be all love-,or atheism which completely denies a higher power because of the opposing nature of God,yet it doesn't end evils in the same time.!!
Gods in ancient times were also feared,that's true.
Its only since the renaissance ,is when the revival of the worship of all Gods changed the belief about them to be neutral,according to how the worshipper approach them or conjure their power in his /her life.
Some reconstructionists ,neo-pagans,magis /witches say that by dealing with a spirit ,God/ddess ,the aim is to become him/her.
The ancients saw that the Gods were immortal,free to do what they want.And all powerful.Yet other than that,they may resemble humans .
There is a belief that the olympians were all mortals once.But deified because of their heroic acts.
Which would make these Gods more suitable to a needed modern concept of faith,and its starting to spread,even among some CHristian movements.Mormons believe that God is corporeal,and that he was once a man!!,we are to end up like him,we are here to live and find wisdom,to ascend to Godhood too,on this realm or on others!!!.
Ancient civilizations believed that despite of the Gods power,and despite that people back then blamed the Gods for evils,its even mentioned in some works of literature that to Gods we are wanton flies,they would kill us for sport!!!,yet there was a belief that the Gods can't give us anything which is not in our hearts.
Which leaves a space to reconsider the fact that Gods may be creators,but whatever we do,we have choices.
Greek Gods because of their complexity ,may have acted in semi-evil ways.But Gods like us have polarities,they are unpredictable,just like everything in the existence.
They may have been cruel,they raped mortals and kidnapped them for love!,they competed with each other for love of mortals or Gods,some of them used mortals as judges in divine competitions,and no matter the judgment was ,it was a trap for the mortal!!!.Some of them were vendective for not being invited to a party!!!.
But they have other reactions that proof they were kind and loving.
Aphrodite may have been full of pride,but she had compassion for lonely humans,she forced a mortal once to marry after pittying him.
Zeus,was a ladies man!,he also had gay love stories,he kidnapped a teenager because he loved him,and gave the boys father flying horses instead,and made the boy Ganemede the water bearer of the Gods and an immortal in stars( Acquaries),but Zeus was just,he drowned towns for the crime of one king!!Zeus never tolerated murder,even from a devotee.
Hera who was represented as evil,envious in Hercules myth,was not the same kind and caring Hera in Jason's myth.
Not to also mentioned that after everything she did to Hercules,as a jealous step mother,but she got along with him eventually!!.

The idea is you shouldn't judge a reaction .Especially not from the Gods.Not because they are higher,its not just it,we humans do worst than this,don't we??!!
But its because probably your standards and motives are different from theirs.They are not humans!!!.
They may seem careless about mortals,but they think different from mortals.They may seem to be acting in a mean way,but its just how their nature makes them do the action!!.
They may seem to be evil,but at some point they reflected an almost human pattern.

What is a Modern Witch?

Modern Witches are a diverse group of souls that aspire to live well and help others to live well by acting as catalysts for positive change in ourselves and for others. We come from diverse religions and spiritual practices; Wicca, North American Indian spirituality, Catholicism, Christianity, Taoism, Buddhism, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, and many others. Witches observe the natural calendar (wheel of the year), esbats and are aware of signs and synchronicities which help to guide us to inclusive solutions for every interaction we have with life. Witches are stewards of life and are servants to Mother Earth and her house.

We are experts in spiritual and natural medicine. All modern drugs that benefit life are extracted from the natural world. Likewise, our goal is to bring health to all living things so that the universe can continue to thrive. Witches are devoted and dedicated to protecting that which has not and influencing that which has, to deliver all life to its greatest potential, for we are children of the earth with duty to protect all things.

We preserve habitats and environments, and we create them at every opportunity. We understand that we have a special relationship with the Gods and that we are made from stardust and even the very earth we walk on. It is a calling to the modern Witch to be involved in the sciences and metaphysical practices that promote life ecology, natural resource management, community health, maintain biophysical feedback mechanisms, and sustain life-supporting functions that produce natural capital.

Ours is the path of peace, trust, and faith in others. We have reverence for people like Jesus, Gandhi, and Martin Luther King Jr. It is a blessing and gift from the Gods through Divine Providence that we protect and preserve life. The enemy of the Witch is none other than despair, which is the lack of faith in our brothers and sisters. Witches look for solutions, and seek to include, not exclude. Witches unite, not divide.

One of the primary objectives of WitchesChat is to encourage people to become the teachers and leaders that the new age will require. If you are interested in spiritual or religious leadership, teaching, or counceling, please join us. If you have been called by the Gods to be a priest or priestess, please consider sharing yourself with us--your wisdom and knowledge, to the benefit of the whole world.

The Charge of the Star Goddess

Hear the words of the Star Goddess,
the dust of whose feet are the hosts of heaven,
whose body encircles the universe ...
"I who am the beauty of the green Earth,
The white Moon among the Stars,
And the Mystery of the Waters,
I call upon your soul to arise and come unto Me.
For I am the Soul of Nature, which gives life to the universe.
From Me all things proceed,
And unto Me they must return.
Let My worship be in the heart that rejoices,
For behold - all acts of love and pleasure are My rituals.
Let there be beauty and strength,
Power and compassion,
Honour and humility,
Mirth and reverence within you.
And you who seek to know Me,
Know that your seeking and yearning will avail you not,
Unless you know the Mystery:
For if that which you seek you find not within yourself,
You will never find it without.
For behold, I have been with you from the beginning,
And I am that which is attained at the end of desire."

The Wiccan Rede

Bide within the Law you must, in perfect Love and perfect Trust.
Live you must and let to live, fairly take and fairly give.
For tread the Circle thrice about to keep unwelcome spirits out.
To bind the spell well every time, let the spell be said in rhyme.
Light of eye and soft of touch, speak you little, listen much.
Honor the Old Ones in deed and name,
let love and light be our guides again.
Deosil go by the waxing moon, chanting out the joyful tune.
Widdershins go when the moon doth wane,
and the werewolf howls by the dread wolfsbane.
When the Lady's moon is new, kiss the hand to Her times two.
When the moon rides at Her peak then your heart's desire seek.
Heed the North winds mighty gale, lock the door and trim the sail.
When the Wind blows from the East, expect the new and set the feast.
When the wind comes from the South, love will kiss you on the mouth.
When the wind whispers from the West,
all hearts will find peace and rest.
Nine woods in the Cauldron go, burn them fast and burn them slow.
Birch in the fire goes to represent what the Lady knows.
Oak in the forest towers with might, in the fire it brings the God's
insight. Rowan is a tree of power causing life and magick to flower.
Willows at the waterside stand ready to help us to the Summerland.
Hawthorn is burned to purify and to draw faerie to your eye.
Hazel-the tree of wisdom and learning
adds its strength to the bright fire burning.
White are the flowers of Apple tree that brings us fruits of fertility.
Grapes grow upon the vine giving us both joy and wine.
Fir does mark the evergreen to represent immortality seen.
Elder is the Lady's tree burn it not or cursed you'll be.
Four times the Major Sabbats mark in the light and in the dark.
As the old year starts to wane the new begins, it's now Samhain.
When the time for Imbolc shows watch for flowers through the snows.
When the wheel begins to turn soon the Beltane fires will burn.
As the wheel turns to Lamas night power is brought to magick rite.
Four times the Minor Sabbats fall use the Sun to mark them all.
When the wheel has turned to Yule light the log the Horned One rules.
In the spring, when night equals day time for Ostara to come our way.
When the Sun has reached it's height time for Oak and Holly to fight.
Harvesting comes to one and all when the Autumn Equinox does fall.
Heed the flower, bush, and tree by the Lady blessed you'll be.
Where the rippling waters go cast a stone, the truth you'll know.
When you have and hold a need, harken not to others greed.
With a fool no season spend or be counted as his friend.
Merry Meet and Merry Part bright the cheeks and warm the heart.
Mind the Three-fold Laws you should
three times bad and three times good.
When misfortune is enow wear the star upon your brow.
Be true in love this you must do unless your love is false to you.
These Eight words the Rede fulfill:
An Ye Harm None, Do What Ye Will

What Our Members Say

Witches Chat isn't a debate room, nor a room where people challenge each other's belief system to determine who's right and who's wrong. If you read something you don't agree with, let it be. If you believe differently, let your opinions be known, but don't tell others they are wrong.
