…Not just any witch, but a Christian Witch. Sound a bit contradictory? Yes, but they are out there.

I’ve been kind of ‘toying’ with the idea for a little while. I’ve always been fascinated with the craft of witchcraft (LOL), but having been raised Christian, it seemed wrong somehow to even entertain the idea. As it stands, I still cannot let go of my monotheistic background, and a large part of me doesn’t want to.

Still, after doing a little research, I discovered there was a sect of witches known as Christian Witches. They still worship God and Jesus, only they use the rituals of the craft in order to enhance (is that the right word?) their worship.

Many witches are polytheistic in their rituals, but instead of making altars to and offering prayers to different Gods and Goddesses, I’d just be praying to the Trinity of God. God has three different parts: God the Father, Jesus the Son and the Holy Spirit. While there calls for a feminine aspect of many of the rituals, I don’t believe the Holy Spirit has a specific gender. Technically God doesn’t either since He’s God and omniscient and all, but He’s been given the Father title, I felt I should continue to see Him as the masculine side. Jesus is His own person, the human part of God.

Anyway, I haven’t told anyone I’ve been contemplating this since many still see witchcraft as something evil. I think I’d prefer to be surrounded by good witches and Wiccans over many so-called “Christians”. I do have a few friends who are Pagans, but I don’t know if they’re necessarily witches or not. I reached out to one of them for a little advice and hopefully, she can help.

My belief is that God created everything on the earth, and why wouldn’t it be infused with some of His spirit and life force. I think it’d be a respectful way of honoring God and His creation with ceremony and rituals.

My one problem is that I have no money to get the things I’d need, like for the altar and the spells et al. So, I might have to practice “in theory” for the time being. I know there are some who make travel altars to take with them and I may do that, once I find the tin and the other things I’d need. I especially can’t do it while I live with my mother. She’s pretty open-minded, but I doubt she’d be as understanding with this as she has been about my sexuality and my political stance.

I have to back-burner things for now, but I hope once I am able to get a steady income that I can get started on doing the necessary things I’ll need to do in order to become a full-fledged Christian Witch. So I have a secret Pinterest board on the various rituals and materials needed for witchcraft. Wish me luck!

Oh, And I think my witch name would be Amethyst Moon. I definitely feel like a Moon Witch.

A bit of a change is coming to where I work, but it’s of the good kind.

We. Are. MOVING!

Yes, we in the PFS (Patient Financial Services) Department are moving to a new building on June 1st. This is good in many ways because the building we are in now is kinda crappy. Mostly due to mold and mildew. Lest I forget the whole ‘paint the ceiling tiles to cover the water stains’ fiasco…

Plus, another good thing for me at least is that this new building(s) are only 15 minutes away from where I live! Cause it’s kinda a pain to drive to the neighboring city in order to go to work, lemme tell ya. There are a few people where it would be farther since they live closer at present, but let’s be honest… I don’t care about them… ;D

There are a few concerns I may have about this move however, so I will go over the pros and cons using the tried and true +/- method:

+ closer to where I live.

+new building, cleaner and (presumably) less mildew.

-potential lack of privacy. One thing with where I am now is that I am pretty much in an office by myself which I kinda like. I don’t have anyone with their strong scented lotions and whatnot to bother me. I dunno what the seating arrangements will be like.

-EVERYONE in the whole department will be there. Granted, they’ll be split among three buildings connected by a hallway, but it makes for a lot more people and the lack of privacy I mentioned above. Plus, there will be supervisors there. Last thing I need are random people looking over my shoulders. Let me work in peace.

-having to pack up all of my shit in order to move it to a new location. While I could use a little cleaning out of my desk drawers, it’s still a pain in the ass.

-space issues. I might now have the same amount of space I have now.

+/-a break room. While we have a break room currently, it’s very small and there is no place for people to sit and eat their lunches. This is why we currently sit at our desks and eat. But that also means we don’t need to clock out and that adds to our hours which means I get off early on Fridays. See the conflict there?

While it looks like the minuses are more than the pluses, I have to keep an open mind about all of this. I mean, some of the minuses may turn out to be pluses! So who knows? I did drive by the place today going into work and it does look like a decent set of buildings. I guess we’ll have to see. I mean, we need to go somewhere. The lease for the current building is up this year.
