Re: Can you punish someone without using black magic?

Well first of all there is no black magic. Magic is magic, all that changes is the intent of the user. Instead, I would probably call it baneful or harmful magic. That said, in my belief system, if I am in the right (and if I'm not sure, I will check with my gods first) then I am free to curse as I ...

Re: Please, don't do this guys

where Manshin, you seem to be talking about closed cultures, and others are discussing much more hypothetically about "what if" one were to get a call from a different deity (despite the fact that most people here actually do draw inspiration from "open" practices, like Kemeticism, Wicca, Hellenic ...

Re: Conflict with Honoring my ancestors.

Honoring your ancestors isn't a huge thing like that. Basically the ones that retained their christian afterlife will hiver around you as "guardian angels" anyway and if they don't want to be a part of your venerations, they simply won't be.

Re: Please, don't do this guys

There's a lot of general responses, so here are just links and bits of articles as to why cultural appropriation is always wrong, I don't care if the "god" from that CLOSED tradition calls to you, you are able to tell them no. And you shouldn't be listening to something that could possibly be your i...

Re: Please, don't do this guys

Totally agree. I'm actually very glad to see this topic broached here because most people are too wary in a neowiccan forum. Cultural appropriation needs to be discussed in every pagan sphere because it is just SO rampant. People making "smudging" kits, people worshiping gods from closed traditions ...

Re: Four Quarters

I honestly don't see why not. That's your culture, your blood sings for it. It isn't wrong to adapt your heritage to your neowiccans beliefs.

Re: What can jade and amber do

I primarily work with jade as it has high importance with my culture. It can protect the wearer from catastrophic incidents, like vehicle crashes. It will be break from it, typically. The spirit inside grows stronger the more you wear it, so most people will only take it off to clean. You can also l...

I often become a dragon when I Astral travel. I think you simply entered the plane and shifted. Plenty weirder has happened in the astral tbh.

Re: Your Path

I participate in my culture's indigenous tradition (mugyo). I am a manshin (eg korean sorceress/shaman). I do rituals and worship korean gods. My spells tend to focus on korean folk magic since I am not professionally trained (instead I learned through my family and ancestors). I am also a Shemsu wi...
