I’ve had this sitting in my drafts for a couple weeks now because I’m really bad at starting something. But when I get going, I just go on and on, so hopefully a janky beginning will be the start of something good!
I am a practicing witch, and have been since I was in middle school. The first deity that spoke with me was Hekate. I had been slightly panicking because Mom was dangerously close to finding a small wall of dirty laundry tucked behind and beside my bed (I don’t know why, I was weird). I have always, always had an interest in the occult/supernatural/arcane/magickal, for as long as I can remember. So, at random I threw out a quick little prayer to Hekate, saying if Mom didn’t find my mess, I would do the dishes with no fuss that night. She never found it, and I did the dishes, saying all my thanks while I did so.
That was my first touch of working with deities, and I have always found it fitting that it was Hekate, the Goddess of Magick first and foremost, who gifted me the start of what I have now. Since then, my deity companions have swelled, and each I am grateful for, so I share their name in thanks.
Hekate. Skadi. Hades. Tsukuyomi. Svetovid. Nyx. Dinlas.
Some have been with me for a number of years, and we are well acquainted with one another. Others, we have forged a bond that cannot be broken, and will only grow in the years. I look forward to spending my life with these deities, it is a comfort to know they are there.
That all being said, I want this particular space to be dedicated to sharing what I know and learn on my journey. There is no wrong way to practice the Craft, but I like to hope that by sharing my journey, others will be inspired, or at least learn something.
Blessed be! ✨
