It’s very interesting how things are brought into our paths. For example, for 30 years I have been studying the use of herbs and natural medicines as well as using natural elements in cleaning products and self care. I have used essential oils for decades to take advantage of their given powers. I am one who feels the energy of other people and of objects so strongly that it makes me very uncomfortable to be in chaotic situations such as bustling shopping areas or noisy restaurants or to be around people who have chaotic energies which portrays as loudness, attention seeking and boisterous characteristics. It has only recently come to my attention that this is just one more weird thing about me that not all humans experience. As I started trying to understand what makes me different, the topic of magick – with a K – started showing up as well as witchcraft. Of course I never ever considered myself a witch so it felt wrong to even look at such material. When I did look at it, I realized I do have a lot of the traits of such beings.
So, that led me to the “witches” who were burned at the stake in the Middle Ages. When I researched what led people to accuse certain women of being witches, I found the following to be the most common reasons for such a classification. If a woman could read or write, she was a witch. If a woman who was not the designated and titled healer in a kingdom used herbs and tonics to heal people, she was a witch. If a woman searched the forest and fields for herbs with healing or “magickal” properties, she was a witch. If a woman believed in signs from nature and made predictions from such signs, she was a witch. For example, if she examined the markings of the wooly caterpillars in the fall and predicted a harsh winter which then came true, she was a witch. Any of these things could easily have led to her being burned alive at the stake. It was so easy for the people within a settlement to cause mass hysteria. All they had to do was point their finger and yell “Witch!” to stir up a huge mob mentality event that would lead to a conviction without anything resembling a speedy and fair trial. With all of this going on, it’s no wonder these kind, nature loving beings who happened to be in tune with the signs and wisdom of nature started hiding their craft. Hiding the craft just added to the overall sense that if it had to be hidden, it MUST be evil. This is where the whole persona of the evil, black magick witch came from. Mass hysteria led to a false narrative that made all natural healers appear to be monsters.
When I looked at this list it didn’t take long to recognize that I would have been a crispy critter long, long ago. So why were these women who were gifted in the arts of nature so feared that they had to be exterminated? Again, it all goes back to control by the ruling class. If there were people out there, especially women, who could heal people and predict upcoming weather conditions, there would be no need for the ruling class to dominate these arts. By controlling these arts, the people were forced to depend on the ruling class to heal them or tell them what was coming. It was, and still is, by forcing the people to look at the ruling class for salvation that enables the ruling class to remain in control.
Let’s step forward a few hundred years. After the witch burning thing cooled down and the practice was stopped, the people with the earth arts were still seen as a threat to the power of the ruling class. In the very early years of the 1900’s the ruling class again stepped forward to put an end to the earth arts. Up until about 1910, the medical schools that existed were based completely on the earth arts and had been since the dawn of humanity. The ruling class decided to once and for all eliminate the earth arts as medicine. They needed a way to control the people and to profit from the people. If ill people could go out in the woods and gather their own medicine, there was no control or profit available for the ruling class. So they introduced a “science” based medicine. They started by manipulating herbs and natural elements in their laboratories to create science based medicines and procedures. An example of this is how they created the miracle drug – Aspirin. The pain relieving element in aspirin comes from the bark of the white willow tree. These scientists extracted the pain relieving portion and made the drug from in. What they didn’t do is also extract the element from the bark that buffers the pain reliever which makes it harmless to the stomach lining. In the laboratory created Aspirin, there was no buffer in the beginning so people who used Aspirin started developing bleeding ulcers in the stomach. This is why buffers eventually had to be added to Aspirin to make it safer for repeat consumption. They thought they were making a good thing better when in fact, they hurt people by messing with Mother Nature.
Then, just like burning the witches at the stake, they put an end to the teaching of natural medicine by cutting off funding to the natural medicine schools. They put out a survey to all the schools which was tasked with determining which schools could be manipulated into following their “new science” path. Those were the schools they funded. All the funding to the other schools was quickly cut off. This made it impossible for the natural medicine schools to continue. To make the demise of natural medicine complete, the masterminds behind science based medicine grabbed the loudspeaker of the media and started their propaganda campaign to ruin the reputation of natural medicine forever. They were almost completely successful. They made the people believe that 6000+ years of natural medicine history was all quackery and anyone who followed natural medicine was a fool. The people bought the propaganda hook, line and sinker. This was nearly the end of natural medicine – until recently. Over the past few decades, there has been a rising number of natural practitioners who have gone back to the craft despite being called all kinds of names for doing so. The practice has risen with such a force that now you can find natural herbs and remedies in main stream drug stores. Most everyone takes some sort of natural supplement despite being told by their doctors how harmful they could be. Hogwash!! Have you ever looked at or listened to the list of harmful side effects that come from their science based drugs? Good Lord!!! Now who are the crazy ones?!?
Now let’s look at what is going on with this new and supposedly life threatening thing that is going around. There are proven natural cures that defeat the bug in as few as 24 hours but the ruling class has made it illegal for doctors to prescribe them. If we can cure ourselves, why would we agree to live in a perpetual state of fear so they can continue to rule over us? The funniest thing about all of this is that this whole debacle has lead to a new generation of those of us who practice “witchcraft”. This group is leading the way out of the matrix and on to a higher level of living which will usher in New Earth and 5D reality. As this is happening, the ruling class is crashing and burning. They are no longer a reality for those of us forging the way. We have turned our focus on living in a better world. What we focus on becomes our reality. As one of these people, I am choosing to leave behind the term “witch” and all the negative connotations associated with it and instead am labeling myself as a Wisdom Crafter. If it is acceptable for people to self identify with all kinds of different pronouns, animals and beings, it is perfectly OK for me to identify as a Wisdom Crafter and so it is and shall be in New Earth and beyond.
Thanks so much for being here. Please feel free to share this post with those who might find it up-lifting.
Love to all!
