Anonymous asked: I am really self-conscious about my practice. I feel that I'm not a very good witch, and that I don't do spells well, and that I don't contribute anything to this community. I guess what I'm trying to say is I feel like a shit pagan and idk if anybody else feels the same because they all seem so confident in their practices.
I like a good sad, uncomfortable post. It does my heart good to see someone airing some truth. Paganism is not a path of all positive all the time; there will be bumps in the road. There will be ebb and flow, and trial with a side of error. There will be times when we’re completely limited by our belief and feel very down on ourselves, and there’s times we’ll think that we’re super witches.
Your only limit to being a good witch is how much you believe in yourself. If you come at it comparing yourself to other people, then you’re going to have a very hard time my friend. We are our own worst enemies when it comes to doubt. Doubt can making the simplest energy work fizzle away. Cast what you want to cast, make a note of it, and then drive it as far out of your mind as possible. When your wishes come to fruition thank the Divine and start over again.
