Modern Witches. A Study in Photos, Part Two.

modern witch

I am so excited about today’s post, part two of our study of modern witches. Although the plan was to post these monthly, I fail epically at delayed gratification. So when Alison (oh, yeah, this is Alison everyone!) agreed to let me photograph her yesterday I knew already I’d be posting today. This project is so dear to my heart, and I do believe we are doing some small good here, too. Witches do not deserve the stigma, fear. and doubt (all depending on who’s doing the judging there) that we encounter. We are simply women who are connected to our own strength. Well, that and the myriad personal beliefs that make us each witches in our own way.

I’ll now step off the soapbox and we can focus on Alison.

Modern Witches. Alison

As it happens, Alison is a dear friend of mine. She is also, one of the more powerful witches I’ve met. I dare you to sit in a room with this woman and tell me you can not feel it radiating from her. She is also, as warm and wise as those eyes would lead you to believe.

Modern Witches

Bubble & Brew: What does the word “witch” mean to you?

Alison: “To my own ears and soul, the word “witch” is a recognition of a woman who has embraced her natural powers and all their consequences.”

Modern Witches

Bubble & Brew: When did you openly share your witch status?

Alison: ” I’ve never declared myself a witch, as I don’t use social media and rarely seek out others. Those close to me have always been aware, and I’ll proudly tell anyone who inquires.”

Modern Witches. Alison.

Bubble & Brew: How did you know you were a witch?

Alison: ” A woman in a shopping mall called me a witch when I was a young child. My mother chased her off and told me it was a gift, not a curse, to be different.”

Modern Witches. Alison.

Bubble & Brew: What, in your experience, in the biggest misconception about witches as a whole?

Alison: “As a grey witch, I accept mother nature’s cruelty and glory as they are. Witches can have ill intent or radiant generosity – both widely recognized concepts. People have accused me of both, and have been right.”

Modern Witches. Alison.

Bubble & Brew: What is your center, spiritually speaking?

Alison: “The moon has ruled me since day one. Learning to love unconditionally for the first time (my partner), has made me a more centered lunatic.”

Modern Witches. Alison.

Bubble & Brew: Use three words to describe yourself as a person

Alison: ” Sage, savage, and therefore paradoxical.”

Modern Witches. Alison.

 

Thank you so much, Alison, for being part of this project. We are honored.

Modern Witches. A Study in Photos.

What makes a witch

Welcome to the very first instalment “Modern Witches”. Each month we’ll be visiting with a different witch to experience the vast array of beliefs, practices, and people who call themselves “witch”.

We think it’s crucial to be out of the broom closets and sharing ourselves with the world at large; if only to demystify/un-demonize who we are collectively.

This month we met with Erlinda, a beautiful & warm soul. Nurturing practically seeped out of her pores. But enough with this rambling, let’s see what she has to say about being a witch.

Bubble & Brew: What does the word “witch” mean to you?

Erlinda: “A healer. A women who gets shit done. Takes care of herself, her children and her tribe. She tends to those who are in need. I also seen the most amazing IG image: W.I.T.C.H Woman In Total Control of Herself. At 35 that is ME!”

Erlinda Smiling

Bubble & Brew: When did you openly share your witch status?

Erlinda: “As soon as it hit me witches were not evil and that I was actually one myself. Maybe about 6 months ago.”

Bubble & Brew: How did you know you were a witch?

Erlinda: “I’ve always been a healer and lover. I knew I would be a wife and mother and I would forever be responsible for tending to the needs of those around me.”

Bubble & Brew: What, in your experience, in the biggest misconception about witches as a whole?

Erlinda: “That we are evil. Society has taught us that strong and smart woman MUST be evil. 10 years ago I would never consider myself a witch nor would I associate myself with a woman who said she was a witch. The concept scared the good Catholic girl in me.”

Bubble & Brew: What is your center, spiritually speaking?

Erlinda: “God. God is woman, man, life and death
> God lives in my core and when I sage my house or hold my crystals and stones I am praying to God for guidance and healing”

Thank you so much, Erlinda, for sharing with us this week!

We are so excited about this project, and we hope you are, too. If you’re a witch living in Southern California we’d love to talk with you.

Bright blessings!
