Little Witch In The Woods

I wouldn’t want anyone to click on this link and search from a database of thousands of free books, many of which are about witchcraft and occult practices…
Why You Should Never Ever Call Someone Your "soul mate, twin flame, etc." ...or Look For Them!
This is just my opinion on the subject but if you're someone in love with this idea then just hear me out real quick. Frankly, even if you believe deeply in this concepts, in my experience witnessing others it does so much more damage than good. It can/often does/usually does:
Set up false expectations that put immense pressure on the partner and relationship to be perfect
Often push people into relationships they normally wouldn't have entered because of a desire to have 'the one's ASAP.
Create unhealthy bonding attachments and fixations on the partner
Foster a sense of ownership and entitlement to the other person's time and attention. It's inherit in the idea that that person belongs to you and you only. A bit red flaggy that is.
And often give people a reason to hang on when they shouldn't
There's nothing wrong with wanting the perfect soul mate, but often when people come to me for tarot readings on their soul mate, twin flames, etc etc they are in deeply toxic and mutated relationships. Or it's a person fixated on an ideal of a person before they've even met anyone. Or worse- it's someone who's broken up and wants to magically force them back because it's their right as soul bonded individuals.
Give up on this idea of "the one" and I guarantee you'll have a better relationship for it, one that might even last your whole life. You don't need to have an iron grasp for that to happen.
Oh to be a cryptid living in the woods and randomly showing up in random places throughout the night and the locals tell storys about a witch that lives in the woods that will curse anyone who tresspass
I didn’t want to hear this as a beginner witch but that never made it less true:
You have to do research.
Chase down references. Chase down the references of THOSE references. Read books. Search the internet.
A tumblr post telling you the associations of herbs is only the starting point. Find what plant you’re interested in working with. Does it live near you? Are you able to sit with it and learn from it’s spirit? If it doesn’t, what plants that serve a similar purpose DO grow near you? How do you harvest them? Would that plant work better because of it’s connection to you and your land?
Do the research, your future self will thank you for it.
