Embracing the True Power of Being a Working Witch in a Real-Life Community

When I think about what it means to be a working witch, my mind immediately turns away from the digital world of Instagram and TikTok, with their carefully curated aesthetics and hashtag-laden content. Instead, I find myself grounded in the tangible, the real, and the deeply personal interactions that happen within my own community. Being a working witch isn't about flaunting my craft online for likes and followers; it's about living my truth, sharing my magic, and building genuine connections with those around me. It's about the powerful energy that comes from real-life engagement and the profound impact we can have when we lift each other up, face-to-face, heart-to-heart.

The Digital Illusion vs. Real-Life Connection

In today's world, it's easy to get caught up in the digital illusion. Online platforms can be a double-edged sword, offering both a place to share knowledge but its also a breeding ground for toxicity. The competitive nature of social media often transforms what should be a sacred, personal practice into a spectacle of ego and comparison. I've seen too many witches, myself included, fall into the trap of measuring their worth by their follower count or the number of likes on a post or by how the "popular" witches react to my content.

But there's a stark difference between an online presence and real-life practice. When I'm in my community, the magic isn't just something I do; it's something I live, something I am. It's in the conversations I have with neighbours and customers, the rituals I share with friends, and the workshops I host or attend. Out here, magic isn't performative; it's participatory. It's a shared experience that builds bonds and supports a sense of belonging.

Empowerment Through Real-Life Engagement

In my opinion, true empowerment as a witch comes from the ability to connect with others on a deeper level, to share our knowledge and experiences in a way that uplifts and inspires. There's a unique strength in being able to look someone in the eye, share your story, and see the spark of understanding and excitement in theirs. This kind of connection can't be replicated through a screen.

When I attend an event, the energy in the space is palpable. We create a sacred space where everyone feels safe to express themselves, ask questions, and explore their own magical path. It's a collaborative effort, a community-building exercise that strengthens not only our individual practices but our collective spirit.

The Joy of Encouraging Others

One of the most rewarding aspects of being a working witch in a real-life community is the opportunity to encourage and support others. When I see a fellow witch struggling with self-doubt or feeling overwhelmed by the noise of the online world, I make it a point to reach out. We talk, we share, and we remind each other of the power we hold within.

Helping others find their footing and confidence in their craft is incredibly fulfilling even if its helping them become a working witch themselves. It's not about being better than the next witch; it's about recognising that we're all on this journey together and that our paths are interconnected. When one of us thrives, we all benefit.

Creating a Supportive Environment

I am proud of the fact that in 2024, I have been able to cultivate a space where witches of all backgrounds and experience levels can come together and feel supported. Whether it's through monthly meet-ups, our personal conversations, or market events, I focus on creating an environment where everyone feels valued and empowered.

This sense of community is essential. It provides a counterbalance to the isolation often experienced when calling yourself a witch but also from the competition often found online. I want to celebrate each other's successes and offer a shoulder to lean on during tough times. We share resources, exchange ideas, and work together to deepen our understanding of the craft.

Living Authentically

Living authentically as a witch, to me, means embracing the full spectrum of our experiences and using them to enrich our practice. It's about being honest with ourselves and others, acknowledging our strengths and weaknesses, and continuously learning and growing.

In my community, authenticity is key. I no longer hide behind filters or curated personas and scripts that use fear and ego as a control tactic for likes and views. Instead, I present myself as I am, flaws and all. This openness fosters trust and deepens our connections. It allows us to support each other more effectively and to celebrate our individual and collective journeys.

The Power of Personal Interaction

There's an undeniable power in personal interaction. The energy exchanged in a face-to-face conversation, the warmth of a hug, the shared laughter and tears—all these moments create a tapestry of connection that can't be replicated online.

When we gather, the energy we raise is magnified by our collective presence. We draw strength from each other, amplifying our intentions and creating powerful magic. This communal aspect of the craft is what makes it so special and so effective.

A Call to Action

For those feeling disillusioned by the online witchcraft community, I urge you to seek out real-life connections. Find a local group, attend workshops, or start your own gatherings. Reach out to fellow witches in your area and build your own supportive network.

The power of a real-life community is transformative. It grounds us, empowers us, and reminds us of the true essence of our craft. By stepping away from the digital noise and focusing on genuine connections, we can rediscover the magic that lies at the heart of being a working witch.
