Yep it's that time again when I have to think of something to write about that follows my life and honours the Pagan Blog Project and today I'm going to have a little bit of a waffle.
One of the things that bugs me about this Path is the amount of people that adamantly tell you that you are doing something wrong if you don't use the right colour candle - or that you can't possibly be a 'serious' Witch because you read Silver Ravenwolf .... I don't want to get into a debate on this - I like her work - I like the way she writes ..... now, does that make me a 'fluff bunny' - probably - and do you know what the people that give me that label know absolutely nothing about me and have no idea what makes me tick!
I know how to have fun, I enjoy walking my Path and the last thing I want to do is have a theological discussion on the merits of my Craft because at the end of the day ........ it's MY path and no one has the right to tell me what's wrong or right about it ..... and that includes the authors I read and the books in my bookcase!
I keep thinking lately about when the world was a much less commercially aware place to be. Would our ancestors have cared if they lit a blue candle on a Tuesday ......... would they even have HAD a blue candle to burn ???? Would they have cast their spell with what they had to hand, wearing the clothes they had???
Don't get me wrong - I have and will continue to support traders in all things Witchy and my dream day would be unlimited funds and a trip to Glastonbury.......... but do I NEED them to get the spell done ????
Nope, not at all and that brings me again to the dissenters within the Craft .... what is wrong with using what is to hand? Will the spell work any better if I am wearing the latest robe???
I work with my Shadow, I read anything I can get my hands on, I do my research, I believe in the fae and love a good laugh ......... so, let me ask this ................. what exactly is a 'fluff bunny'???
