I did share it, lmao. That’s the graveyard story. Obviously skimped on detail, but that’s the meat and bones of it!
I don’t think being skeptical negates practice! I’m not super committed to witchcraft - it’s more like now and then I’ll dust off the tarot cards for a wee reading session, or I’ll find some cheap sage in a spiritual shop and do a whole gaff cleansing, or I’ll be so stressed out over some real life situation that I’ll put together a whole elaborate spell just to put my mind at ease. I don’t necessarily fully believe that the tarot cards hold all the answers, or that sage will really get rid of negative energy and entities, or that the spell will really sort all my shit out. It’s kind of just therapeutic for me - it might do something, and that’s enough to calm me down or give me confidence when I need it.
I take the same approach to other religion. I’m not set on what I believe yet, and sometimes I lean more towards Christianity than witchcraft. I’ll go to church one Sunday, read some chapters of the Bible, pray for a little while. Am I dead set in my belief that God is real and He’s looking out for me? No, not really! But it still makes me feel better to do all the proper things and know that, maybe, He will help me out and this has made me a better person in the grand scheme of things.
RE: the supernatural experiences, then, the graveyard incident and the times I’ve had conversations with a ouija board or pendulum and whatnot - I don’t know if I really believe it’s anything more than just subconscious muscle movements and a vivid imagination. But, just in case it is, I want to be totally aware of what’s going on, be cautious, and then tell the story later because it’s always fun.
