The natural world envelops us every single day. Its abundance and temperance flows in and among all things that are willing to interact with it, and everything from the food we eat to the air we breathe to the water we drink is a gift from the green earth.
The Green Witch is moved by the cycles of nature and much of their practice is centered around learning and becoming attuned to the flows of energy that the earth brings.
If you are a beginner witch, inspired by the natural world, find yourself enamored with plants, or are simply excited to learn more about yourself by studying the natural world all around, Green Witchcraft may be a path that you can benefit from.
Here are 4 ways you can begin to explore the deep and wide path of Green Witchcraft.
UNDERSTAND YOUR ENVIRONMENT
Green Witchcraft is all about the connection to earth and life itself. What better way to learn how things work together in your area than to go experience nature yourself? Go on a walk, take a trip to the mountains or simple choose a park to spend time in as you learn to feel your connection to the environment more deeply.
LEARN & WORK WITH HERBS & PLANTS
Herbs are often the best place to start, as there are many every day uses for them. You can use them in food to help with digestion, tea to improve the body, and as decoration and in your home as magical talismans. There are many books on the subject of magic and herbs. Go try it out!
GROW A GARDEN
Plant things and watch them grow! It’s okay if you don’t have room for a full garden, use the space you have to plant sunflowers, herbs, lettuce and even veggies that you buy from the store to see how they grow and flourish.
WE ARE ALL CONNECTED
We often can’t see how we’re all connected by a universal web of life. It’s easy to assume that one tree has one set of roots, but in fact, many trees produce many more trees from a single sysemt of roots. The more you work with to understand and engage with this interconnected energy, the more power your Green Witchcraft will have.
