I Was Told I’m A Born…

Wolfwitch by Springwolf 2012

Am I A Born Witch, Wiccan, Healer, Shaman?

Witch, Wiccan, Shaman, etc…

The popularity of the Full Moon Friday the 13th brought in a huge number of people to my blog and my websites. Along with those visits came a huge amount of eMail too. And I thought it was interested out of all the eMails, there was a recurring theme in about 20% of the bunch.

People have been told by someone, the someone varies from person to person, but someone has told them they are a Born Witch. A naturally born Wiccan or Shaman. A naturally born Healer or  Psychic. And few other things I’d rather not define here.  ;-o

I’ve answered each of those eMails on a personal level, but with the large pattern of recurrences to that question I thought I’d share some information here on the blog about that topic.

The simple answer is.. No, you’re not.
I’m sorry, you’re not a natural born witch, Wiccan, healer, shaman, or anything else like that.

Being a witch, Wiccan, shaman etc.  is a choice, not a birth right or predestined path. There is no witch DNA strand, or Wiccan chromosome in the human body. No magikal cell that can identify you as exceptionally different from any other non-witch, Wiccan, Shaman, Healer or anything else in the context of this question. Those are spiritual paths that one selects to follow, learn about, understand through practice and exercise. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: The Sun – Inverted

The Sun - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Ask why you’re trying to shine so bright? Is it for pride, self-sufficiency and a sense of self-worth? Are you holding onto a healthy ego with confidence because you’ve accomplished goals you’ve set for yourself? It’s ok to be proud, you’ve earned that right. Or is it a strong desire for success and popularity because you want to be admired? The latter requires work, warmth and compassion. Pay attention to your actions and reactions today. Too much confidence creates a sense of entitlement and arrogance.


Additional Insight:

Too much ego creates arrogance and those who might normally look to you as an example of success, will be turned away with no desire to get to know you at all. Don’t let your physical condition (being tired or achy, etc.) change your personality so much that you become aloof and uncaring to those around you. You’re not the only one who’s suffering with lack of sleep or aches and pains. And your attitude maybe mistaken for a sense of arrogance and entitlement, instead of the fortitude trying to make it through the day.

Yellow is the color of success, and the sun has much to offer in that regard. But you must be cautious that the pride you have in your accomplishments doesn’t swing your pendulum to far in any direction. Not enough confidence and pride in your accomplishments can get you over looked. Too much and you might gain some negative attention you don’t necessarily want either. Continue reading
