THE GREEN WITCH
A Green Witch is much more than someone with an affinity for herbs and a green thumb. The natural world surrounds us every day and lends its abundance to us is ways that most people never even realize. Everything from the food we eat to the air we breathe to the water we drink is a gift from the green earth, and Green Witches are moved so much by this process of daily renewal that they feel led to work with the energies of plants and spirits of the earth mother as their craft.
Green Witchcraft is all about opening yourself up to the natural rythims of nature and allowing those energies to permeate all that you do. If you love to be in nature, honor the forests, listen to the quiet streams and understand the energetic qualities of herbs, Green Witchcraft may be a natural choice for you.
HOW TO GET STARTED
WHAT IS GREEN WITCHCRAFT
A Green Witch is someone who works with herbs, foods, the elements, earth spirits and has a deep love and learned understanding of the natural world. A green witch is not born with a gift, but rather dedicates time and energy to better understanding nature and how it can be used to improve their lives and the lives of their community as a whole.
Green Witches raise energy with the help of herbal allies such as plants, trees etc, and through connecting with the interconnected web of life as a whole to accomplish work that benefits them and others.
Begin to learn more about the common herbs available to you and connect with nature as you would a close friend to see how receptive you are to this path as a whole.
WAYS TO PRACTICE 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.
