I was an Armchair Witch

An armchair witch or pagan is someone who reads books but doesn’t do any spells or rituals.

I confess that I used to be one of these. I became a pagan ten years ago last Autumn Equinox. Then I was being treated by doctors for stress and was signed off work.

My concentration was shot and the only books I could read properly, from cover to cover, were graphic novels as they didn’t need much concentration. Other books I just flicked through, reading bits out of them that caught my eye.

It took me five years to be able to properly read a non-fiction book. During that time I really wasn’t doing anything apart from reading forums.

Today I often wish that I was doing more with my path, but I have to remind myself that I was unable to do anything much with the first five years of my path and I also have a full-time job.

    I was an armchair witch, with no real excuses at all for a while. Sometimes learning is the best way forward until we find ourselves able to or get that necessary push to move forward. 🙂
