I think you have been watching charmed to much. Personally I think Gardners Wicca was just a way for a perverted old man to get his kink on.
Now the concept of being of wicce or of the Craft is different. That is all about Celtic Shamanism. To be one with the earth and use the power of the
elements to improve your basic understanding of life and the otherside. The problem with it is that because the mainstream does not accept it, the
entire movement attracts the fringe.
Until you have journeyed to the otherside through Shamanism you can never fully understand life and the spirit.
Personally I was a mindless consuming cheese chasing American Idiot before I discovered my path. I was a top car salesman and was the dealerships
television spokesperson. I was known all over the greater Lansing, Michigan area. I have been in management and then went on to be a loan officer for
a bank. I am now a Firefighter/EMT because I have realized after accessing the higher self money means nothing beyond basic survival in a modern age.
I gave up driving my Cadillac STS, my Crotch rocket and swimming pool and big house to be a low paid public servant.
I have saved many lives since.
An example of using my spiritual side in the real world. The worse personal injury accident ( a car accident that involves injury) I have been on. Two
sport utility vehicles hit head on at highway speed, neither vehicle even had time to break and hit brand emblem to brand emblem and instantly
canceled the others speed.
I was first on scene.
In one vehicle there was a three year old girl in the back seat in her child safty seat. Both of the childs Humerus bones (the ones that connect the
shoulder to the elbow) were broken just from the weight of her arms the impact was so severe. She had a neck fracture (the C-2) and was paralyzed from
the neck down. The mother was in the drivers seat with 6 compound fractures to both femurs (the largest bone in the human body) you could see them
protruding through her blue jeans. Another Firefighter took care of the little one while I began first aid on the mother. She had no idea what was
going on with her little one and it was all she cared about...kept asking me how her daughter was doing, all I could say was we are doing all we can
and the two of us need to focus on you (her and I) if I did not get her to calm down I was going to lose her.
When we finally got the door off we began extraction. When we backboarded her we had to do all we could to make sure we did not injure her spine and
had to ignore any pain we put her through by dragging her broken legs over the curve of the seat. The screaming was so loud my ears rang the rest of
The point is that the best first aid I did was held her hand, once we transfred her to the gurney she looked me in the eyes and I projected calmness
and well being to her. She stopped screaming and looked deep into me and I her. The energy going through my hand to hers was like electricity and she
She is now alive and able to take care of her paralyzed little girl.
Pretty silly you say...
I beg to differ.
Edit for errors because my hands were shaking recalling this scene.
It was so bad a Paramedic and myself hugged and held each other in the middle highway crying after we cleared the scene.
