About Green Witchcraft

About Green Witchcraft Cover Green Craft is an herbal, practical, self-empowerment type of Craft that has three basic approaches. Green practice as folk art, personal magiks and religion. Sometimes it is called the old religion as it has passed through the Celtic-Iberian generations. The green witch is a natural witch, a hereditary witch, and most usually, a solitary witch. A green witch finds the woods and nature comforable and a safe-haven for quiet time.

The green Craft also has a lot to do with the lore of Greenwood. I study and practice with a familiar as well as a companion from the Other World. Other People (also known as Faerie Folk) can be sought out through meditation and befriended along the way.

A green witch uses the dark powers as well as the light powers. This is not the same as a white magik and a black magik. That is a common misconception. Black magik is most commonly known as the "evil intent" in the heart when working with the Craft. Using the dark powers in the craft, and keeping balance in the All, does not mean that you use it for evil intent. The dark aspect can be called upon just the same as the light aspect, and used to better yourself for unselfish reasons and to help and protect those around you. The only way a dark aspect would be "bad" is the same as in all paths of the Craft, if you have evil in your heart.When using the dark powers, you can journey to new places that you've probably not explored in only using the light powers.

Green Craft is similar in a lot of ways to all other paths in the Craft. The basics are the same, as well as the religion aspect and beliefs. I find that Green Witchcraft suits me best because I am completely at home in the woods, I could probably even live as a hermit, and would LOVE it. I also know that being a kitchen witch, this aspect of the Craft suits me best.

Well this is the basics of Green Craft. I hope that it opened some doors for some of you! Most of my material knowledge came from the Green witchcraft series by Ann Moura...if anyone comes up with some good green reading, let me know!
