“NOW IS THE TIME, THIS IS THE HOUR, OURS IS THE MAGIC, OURS IS THE POWER!” -The Craft
If the title of this page sent electrical pulses of excitement or the yearnings for re-awakening through your spine then you’ve come to the right place. There has been a multitude of inspiration sporadically peppered through out my life such as the movie, The Craft, the scent of incense billowing from a local magic store in my teens, my first witchy book, Scott Cunningham’s “Wicca for the Solitary Practioner,” however none have been more powerful for the reclamation of the word itself, the SHE power behind it and the sovereignty granted by the ownership of it than the following quotations and books from inspirational teachers and their writings.
WITCH by Lisa Lister
“Unleashed, Untamed, Unapologetic,” and that pretty much sums it up 🙂 but if you’re looking for more here is another quote from her book. “Let me tell you instead a different story. It’s a story where you no longer fear the word witch. A story where you discover that the fear you’ve experienced has been part of a 3000+ year old patriarchal plan to keep you from your own innate feminine power. A story where you’re invited to reclaim the word witch. To own it. Fully.” -Lisa Lister, Witch.
Woman Most Wild by Danielle Dulsky
Anything and everything she teaches or writes is liberating and earth shattering. This is a quote from the above mentioned book: “I see you now, a woman whole in her soul, body mind and spirit. Crouching in the shadows of the triple-locked broom closet you are. You may feel it is not worth the trouble to stand firm on your muddy bare feet and use those three keys you hold in your left hand. You may fear condemnation. You may want so much to be in control when you have a bone-deep knowing that your most authentic self is limitless, untamed and ancient. In these pages I will show you how to open the door that keeps your spirituality so neatly and apologetically contained. Unlock this closet carved with the claw marks of your inner Witch, and liberate Her soul, and I will call you out as a Woman Most Wild.” -Danielle Dulsky, Woman Most Wild.
RISE WITCH RISE | RISE WITCH RISE | RISE WITCH RISE | RISE WITCH RISE
Repeat until you feel your entire being buzzing with power of it, with the more than okayness of it, with the ownership of it and then sit back and smile. You could imagine yourself with me in my first circle hosted by Danielle Dulsky, a beautiful little fairy looking creature that suddenly morphs into the most epic space holding crone you’ve ever seen as she shouts in a deep throaty voice those words, her mantra (yes this is Danielle’s mantra, but it is also very much OUR mantra, your mantra) at you in a small space and container full of power, floor shaking (literally), witches hissing and ecstatically swaying to the words…. “RISE WITCH RISE, RISE WITCH RISE, RISE WITCH RISE, RISE WITCH RISE!”‘ …and so it is! Sha!
