Monday, November 8, 2021


I’m sure some of you know what an Eclectic Witch is and some may not know what it is. In this blog post, I will talk about what is an eclectic witch and why I choose to call myself an eclectic witch. Let’s see what google has to say on what each word means.

What is an Eclectic Witch?

An Eclectic Witch is someone who is constantly evolving and who incorporates many different traditions, cultures, and influences into their path. An Eclectic Witch will ensure that all tools and traditions used in their craft fit together harmoniously. They will make sure to research and to be open and accepting of many different cultures and traditions. 

Their craft will be a blend of many different paths, cultures, and beliefs. Over the course of their journey as a witch, they will blend what they have learned from other crafts to make it their own unique path. It’s an ongoing process of trying new traditions and learning about how they might fit into the witch world.

Finding Your Own Eclectic Path

There’s four ways to find your own eclectic path and that’s; 1. Experiment, 2. Research, 3. Validate, 4. Blend. Each one you have to do on your own because not one patch is the same. Something that calls to you may not call to someone else. So it’s best to do your own learning but you can always ask for help from others. Don’t limit yourself when it comes to learning and expanding your craft. 

1. Experiment

As you come across different beliefs and traditions of witchcraft, devote to giving them a try. Engage in the tradition and look within yourself to decide if it is something that you’d like to add into your practice.

2. Research

Always do research on the path you are taken. Research the culture and traditions and learn everything you can about the craft you want to add into your practice. Don’t just surface over a few things. Dive into learning what there is to learn. Read books, search on the internet, ask others in that culture, watch documentaries, and so on.

3. Validate

After you’ve learned what there is to learn about that culture and craft, give yourself time to validate that it is working for you. Keep a journal on what is working for you and add what you need to into your grimoire.

4. Blend

Once you know what calls to you from that craft, add it into your own practice. Blend it into your craft and make sure that it works well with your other transitions and spell work that you do.  

What does this mean for this blog?

For this blog, it will mean that I will not only write about crystals, herbs, etc., I will also write about the things I will learn from other paths I will take. I am a Christian Witch but I’m also many other types of witches and eclectic just fits for me.

I’ve also been speaking with my parents and I want to learn more about where our family comes from. Being from south Louisiana and America, I’m a blend of so many things but I do want to know my heritage. I know that my moms family was once in Nova Scotia and traveled down to Louisiana. I also know that my dad’s family are both British and French. I’ve always wanted to go to Canada for as long as I could remember and maybe that’s part of my soul calling me back home. Either way, I’m going to research that area and the people who live there. It’s a starting point that I’m very grateful to have that will help me on my path as a witch. 

I’m hoping that bring all of this to you, will help you too. I want you all to join me as I learn new things and add it within my practice. It will be a slow going process but I know it can happen.
