What is Spirituality ?

To start off Many people have a different perspective on what spirituality is so technically there is no right or wrong. Also everyone’s journey and experience of it is different and unique. Spirituality is something very personal and intimate to many people. I like to think that Spirituality is a practice not a religion. Meaning you can believe, worship and work with who ever you want to and be a spiritualist. Then, Spirituality is a open practice so anyone one from anywhere is welcome to start their spiritual journey. Next, to better describe what spirituality is its like being able to see more than what your physical eyes allow you to see in the physical word. also, it can be defined as following ones spirit, we discover our correct path in life, our true gifts, and a deeper understanding of ours elf and purpose.

What is Witchcraft?

It is the practice of magic, sorcery and anything out of the normal like the supernatural. Witchcraft is a semi open practice because there are different types of magic and witches so you really would have to research on the kind that your interested in to see if its open or not. Then, If its not to make sure to see if it can apply to you. Witchcraft is not a religion but a practice so like spirituality you can believe, work, worship who ever. Now witchcraft actually has a bad reputation around it. Many say that witchcraft is evil, dark, and who ever practices works with demons and worship Satan. Even though witchcraft is dark and can be negative…..Many witches, pagans, or wiccans do not believe in Satan or a Hell. What is not talked about is how witchcraft can be good and positive. Yeah there is different types of witches that you may be considered bad because they practice dark , blood, necromancy, sacrifice magic but there are good witches if you may consider that practice, healing, green, white magic. The craft is different for everyone and you have the right to explore and discover what fits you best. Witchcraft is not what they made you to believe.

Basics Of Spirituality

When starting your spiritual journey be open for difficult times. Spirituality is not only happiness and being at peace. Being happy and positive 24/7 is fake because something will always be going on. Its okay to not be happy or at peace always. Then, Its okay to not always be positive. Believe it or not we all can be negative in one way or another. What is important is accepting yourself and every part of you even if you don’t like some parts. You will eventually learn to be comfortable with yourself even the dark inside you not only the light.

Basics About Witchcraft/Brujeria

Some basic things that I would recommend for individuals that want to get started in witchcraft but don’t know where to start. To start off I am no expert and I did not make a profession out of this but…I have practiced it and I do continue to practice it so I do have knowledge and experience of it. I would tell you to start researching about open and closed practices, cleansing, grounding yourself, meditation, history of witchcraft in other cultures and in your own culture, types of magic, and types of witches. These are the basics That I plead for people that are getting started. I also, Like exaggerating that it may be boring and a a lot but research is crucial and important. You need to know what your doing and what you are getting yourself into. Get in the habit to research before performing anything because if you don’t research then you don’t know what you are inviting into your space, home, and life.

How spirituality and Witchcraft can Tie together

Personally I Practice spirituality and Witchcraft. This means you can practice both of them together and separately, remember its your journey and craft. But, I do consider myself to be a Christian witch. I sounds crazy right like HOW? Well first like I mentioned before witchcraft is a practice not a religion meaning you can believe in, worship, work with anyone you desire. I believe personally in God, Jesus, Holy Spirit, holy trinity, and angels. Those are who I work with, believe in, and worship to. Also, I am Latina and there are many Latino brujos (witches) that are either Christian or catholic because of how our culture is. How my craft can also be different is that in my verbal spells I use bible verses and I pray before I start anything too. Also, because I’m Christian I hold myself back from any kind of magic or practice that does go against my principles and beliefs like for example dark/black magic, blood magic, necromancy, curses, hexes, sour jars anything negative. I do not touch those things. This is how spirituality and witchcraft can tie together and also if you had any questions on having a belief or religion already but your interested in the craft. You would have to research about the two and not only one.
