ok, this is something confusing to me.
i always thought if you believe something and live it , then that is what you are. right?
but then i hear about these "self-initiations" for solitary witches, and group or coven initiations.
and im wondering....do you have to be "initiated" to be considered a witch??
is this a common practice from far back in time?
or is this just something that people CAN do to make them feel more accepted as a witch?
or is it like a final transition thing?
like they worked so hard to get to a certain spiritual point and this like confirms it for them??
is it a MUST?
or is it a casual thing? like you can do it if it makes you feel more like a witch, but if you dont have it done then it doesnt make you any less of a witch kind of thing?
what do other people feel on the subject?
