That's right... I think I have forgotten to mention that I have taken on a student! It was in the (tarot) cards, and the opportunity presented itself. I feel funny sometimes thinking of myself as a teacher of magick. But it is really no different from teaching my sons, although with them it's more of an encouraging natural talent. Whereas teaching this young woman is more of helping her find her own connection and path to Truth.
In a sense, I don't believe that magick can be taught. Magick is something you have to FEEL inside you and nurture in order to bring it out. I can teach her the technicalities, lore, and why a Sabbat is celebrated. But no one can teach magick. Just like you can not teach a person to grow, it just happens. Not something you can force into being.
On that note.... I have a Surprise Zombie Apocalypse Party to get together for tomorrow. The eldest turns 10 on Tuesday! And yes, to him, I may just end up being the best mom ever!
