Modern Day Witches

What do you think of the word Witchcraft and how would you define a witch? Is it something that infuses fear, something that is dark and mysterious, something you better stay away from and be careful with? Well it looks like according to current quotes and beliefs, I am a modern day witch.

To be a witch is to be a healer, a helper, a teacher, a seeker, a giver, a warrior, a protector of all things. Witchcraft is a deep love of nature and the ability to see magic in places where most do not. A witch believes in alternative medicine and makes her healing potions herself with the support of Mother Nature. She believes in energy and vibrations, the power of healing with her touch or through the divine. She is peaceful and law abiding while honoring various practices. Smells, touches and feel’s are some of her closest friends. She loves crystals and certain aroma’s. Incense and candles fill her space. Other magical artifacts surround her place of comfort. She’ll sit and gaze at the night sky for hours and the sun, stars and the moon are all part of her family. A witch is likely to be an empath who cares deeply for others. Symbols, Runes, Sigil’s, and Pentagrams are just few she holds important. Their energy is her guide, as are Oracle cards and Tarot.

These are just a few suggestions and not all inclusive of how to spot a modern day witch. If this path is yours, and you relate, may you walk it with honor light and integrity. And may you always be proud of being one of the chosen ones. The ones that feel just a little extra. The ones that make difference and the ones that are here to create a new earth.


We are the co-creators of our life and the time is now. More than ever are we needed to support Mother Earth and each other. Together we discover and explore our unique gifts in times of strengths, in times we lean on each other, and in times when we learn from each other. This blog started as an outlet and what I ultimately called my “Warriors Journey.” It was a way to document the ups and downs of my life, sharing my hardships as well as my successes. It showcased the struggles, but more important the ways of how to overcome them. Although we are warriors each and every day, I realized that having to be a warrior, comes from a place of pain. I decided to rename this blog, and “Phoenix Rising” now stands for the story of overcoming such a painful place. My motivation for this blog hasn’t changed and I hope to share inspiration and hope, to create a sense of belonging, a space of being heard, and connecting with like minded beings who instill a sense of oneness. We are never alone, and we are unstoppable in the pursuit of what sets our soul on fire. Who I am in a nutshell... 
I am an energy healer and Reiki Master. I am surviving a chronic disease that I’ve sent into remission three times since my initial bout, 15 years ago. I continuously challenge the status quo and by doing so I change my stars. I am a believer that anything is possible. I am a hopeless romantic and I believe that true love exists on various levels. I am an optimist that will always see the glass as half full. I am a dreamer, believing in endless possibilities. Not even the sky is the limit. I have jumped off of the hamster wheel, and I am writing a new chapter. I am chasing my Nirvana to support my most authentic self. This is my story, I am that Phoenix and I am rising from the ashes. Namaste 🙏🏼💙🦋

  1. You are surely, what I will call a positive witch, dear Rhapsody.

    By experience, I do know, that the less positive kind also do exist. They often claim to be working in the light, even they don’t, told shortly. They are dangerous souls to be around.

    I do often use the term light-worker, as we don’t have anything to hide, no hidden agenda, only wish to help and support other souls in our world.

    Send you much love and healing ❤

    1. Thank Irene and as always you are completely right. And yes there are the less positive kind as well and you could think I am naive or always living in positivity, oblivious to the other side…the negative. Unfortunately these bad witches exist and are dangerous and it is most helpful to be aware and prepared. I like the term light worker as well and you described it beautifully.
      Thank you for your thoughts, your love and your healing. I have improvements to report 😘 and you are part of the reason as to why. Stay tuned 💙🙏🏼

      1. Why thank you kind lady…but beware…that unknown poem ‘Reason, Season, or Lifetime’ is in full swing, I may say or do something terrible to shatter your heart. I almost have already by eating all the chocolate and having not shared a single block…I think my bad side has escaped its prison already 😂 🤣 ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋

    1. I think it’s because many are uncomfortable with what’s foreign to them. Some simply have to belittle others and put them down so they can empower and lift themselves. It’s sad, really, when we have to characterize and put others into a box. A great lesson not to do it ourselves. 😘
