Déjà vu?

(6 replies)

I experience déjà vu at least 3 times a week. Most of the time it's little things.. like a conversation I've had before or something silly like that. But I've also had dreams about people I don't even know. I had a dream about my current boyfriend about 6 months before I met him. At first I thought I was crazy and he did too. But last week I had a dream about an old friend of the family.. we were having a birthday party for him but he never showed. I had my mom call him.. his birthday was the day before and he was in the hospital after a motorcycle accident. It was the strangest thing ever. So what I'm asking… does this seem like the gift of premonition?

Does it matter what kind of sage I use for cleansing?

Does it matter which pantheon I choose: Greek or Roman?

(3 replies)

I noticed that Greek and Roman belief system is a lot alike and I'd like to work with deities such as Hestia and Hecate (Hecate being a only Greek Goddess), but I find the Roman pantheon to be a better fit for me because the heavenly bodies are named after the Roman Gods and I like that. Does it matter if I choose just one? Or mix them together? I guess it would depend on me (lol), but I wanted to see what your opinion was.

Does my crush know I'm contacting her spiritually?

(3 replies)

So I've been practice white magic to contact a loved one spiritually, emotionally, and in her dream spells. I kinda took it up a notch by placing a picture of her in the center of a pentagram I drew with two red ritualistic candles to call upon the gods. And I've noticed that anytime I spiritually contact her, she continues post pictures of her boyfriend (which she has issues with) like an hour or two later. Is she trying to push me out of her head? Is it a sign she knows I'm contacting her?

Does the use of methadone in the form of daily treatment block my ability to feel energies or move them, hinder my spell work or

(3 replies)

I am a beginner in wicca and I'm not sure if my long term (prescription) use of this medication is keeping me from being able to connect with energy and nature the way I should? My senses are very dull and even though I have been researching for months I have not connected with a diety. I feel a pull to freyja but when I meditate or pray to her I feel nothing. I feel no energy's other than when I chant during the few spells I have tried. It's a tingling happy feeling, but it only last a short time and then nothing. I don't understand what is blocking me and the only thing I can think of is possibly my use of this medication.

Do I have Witch blood?

(3 replies)

I always knew who I was since my childhood, even if at that time I couldn't explain it. But I always knew. My gifts, abilities, every inch of me has nothing to do with ''normal'', my days are not normal (to me they are but to others, it is all seen as weird) and all my gifts came naturally and effortlessly.

All my life I have been called a witch since childhood to my adulthood. And I never knew why people called me that. As a young adult, I am still learning how to cope with society. It's hard but I know am not alone. I am deeply connected to God and my ancestors, what increases my curiosity is, I have had more visions and dreams lately, but they were about women running away, I believe it was the witch hunt because, I saw how they have been killed and burnt. (horrible). Some of the women called me ''daughter'', and they showed me where they hid some things.

There was a vision where I saw a woman who REALLY looked like me, but she had very long wavy hair (almost feet length) while she was attached to a tree and being burnt, she was looking at me and showed me her cameo, it had a spiral symbol. Strangely, I found the same symbol in my room as a small medal. I remember I had this medal that I got in a magazine's gift, didn't know it was a sacred symbol but it's been years I had lost it so suddenly after that vision I finally found it again, I will put it in my grimoire or a jewel. And those visions are happening more frequently, I would be so happy to read your opinions about wether or not I carry witch blood in my veins. Even if I always knew who I was, I'm new to those ''Witchy'' things. I started to collect herbs, etc for my apothecary, I'm here to learn. I'm glad and thankful I found this website.
