All Beliefs are Welcome Here!

Being aware of other cultures as a witch and practitioner

Be respectful and aware of other cultures .  Just because you 

love another culture and their religious beliefs and clothing as

your own .  Unless people from that culture invite you to 

participate in their ceremony or you attend and event ; you 

should always ask first as to what is appropriate or not . 

Some cultures view certain things as very sacred like white sage

and headdresses and do not like when those items are appropriated . 

Be mindful and always  educate yourself before you want to try something new !!

I have always believed that the `magic` of the place, the `genus loci` deity/energy is the one that works best with those who reside in that place?

For example, if you live in Celtic Wales, the obvious deity and magic that should be most potent and connectable to those who live there is not say `Egyptian ` magic with its Gods,correspondences and rites and rituals, but Celtic?

Its very popular to be `eclectic` and take a little from here and a bit from there to work and cobble together into a magic for the individual, but by its nature, the magic then can have an  opportunity to be disconnected and not fluid?

A bit like being at Stonehenge on an `open Solstice` with 25,000 people crushed around you and trying to work a circle among them, the energies would be too haywire and disconnected.

Relocate your circle to a time at Stonehenge when there are perhaps 4 or 5 other people with your circle group inside Stonehenge, and the circle and magic would be more effective and fluid and focused.

That purely an observation from the past times.

As you rightly say, respect other cultures and be aware of them, the differences and therefore the limitations and possible problems if misappropriating rite/ritual or correspondences different to those of your own.
