Starting over is never a bad thing

I made witchcraft harder than it had to be.

I kept forcing a lot, expecting immediate results, feeling like a failure at every turn.

Labeling myself a “green witch” didn’t feel right anymore, everything was confusing and mixed up — I just threw my hands in the air and gave up.

I want to start over. Figure out what I want to start with first. I know there are basics that every witch should know:

  • Grounding
  • Centering
  • Protection
  • Cleansing
  • Introspection (haven’t tried this one yet)

Overall, we should always look into our practice and see what we need to change. Take out or put in what works for us.

Every time I want to write, the blank screen makes me nervous.

No ideas pop into my head.

I go to find external inspiration from other writers when it comes to witchcraft, but then I end up comparing myself to them.

“They have more experience than I do”

“I can’t write about this because I’m nothing but an amateur”

“How can I teach someone about witchcraft when I still don’t know what I should be writing? Even if I did, will they care?”

These are my thoughts when I want to create anything. Impostor syndrome takes over and makes me feel inadequate. It sucks.

So all I can do is just write about whatever I find when I research.
