Finding my true self

Hi, I am Bryony, I live in Spain. I recently discovered that I am a fourth generation witch through my birth mother who I never knew. She never got over giving me up for adoption and passed early so she could protect me from the other side which she did - admirably. I have always felt distant, not part of this world, drawn to nature and magic - now it makes some sense. Throughout my life people have seen my mother at my side, seen my purple aura, golden footsteps and finger traces - but I don’t see, I want to learn, I want to know my Mom and become who I was always meant to be. I want to be able to communicate with her.Thank you for listening


Hi @wendy20! I’m Amethyst from Southern West Virginia here in the States. Welcome to the forum! :infinite_roots:

No need to feel distant anymore. You’re now a part of our community. Have you found the courses yet? They are a great way to get started and I feel like the Meditation course will be a great start to connecting to your Mother.

If you have any questions just ask and someone will pop up to help. I look forward to getting to know you!


Hi Bryony, I’m Meadow from the states. It is so wonderful that you were able to learn about your mother and your family history. I am just a baby witch, but I have learned so much from this website. I agree that you should look through their lessons, they are so helpful and provide so much information. I sincerely hope that you will be able to connect with your mother and find your true self. I wish you luck in your journey!


Welcome to the forum @wendy20 :wave:

I’m sorry to hear that you never got to meet and enjoy the presence of your birth mother :people_hugging: but you’re finding your place and the path you’re meant to be on! I’m sure with time and practice, you’ll be doing all the things you’ve always dreamed of doing! :revolving_hearts:

Please make yourself at home – I look forward to seeing you around the forum!


Merry meet Bryony @wendy20,

I’m Bry, another moderator here in the forum and an Eclectic Witch- just wanted to pop in and say hello and thank you for sharing your introduction! It’s a pleasure to meet you :blush:

It sounds like you are already moving confidently in the direction you wish to go- congrats to you for embarking on your magickal journey officially! You’re among good company here- the coven is a very friendly one and we are always happy to help however we can :infinite_roots: :two_hearts:

If I can offer up a few resources for you, I would recommend exploring the Spirit Work tag in the forum- it will show you all the posts that deal with spirits, ghosts, and communication through the veil to worlds beyond.

There’s also a helpful guide about how to communicate with spirits that I will link here:

Wishing you all the best, Bryony, and I hope to chat with you more soon- see you around the forum! Blessed be :sparkles:


Welcome to the forum @wendy20


Thank you all so much for the welcomes and supportive messages. I have nearly completed the meditation course and and collecting PDFs for my Grimoire - I have been using crystals for many years now and talk to my Mom through a rose quartz pendulum which I wear for connection along with my protective labradorite. Instinct has drawn me to nature and crystals, I have seven crystal singing bowls and enJOY doing bowl sessions. I am a Reiki Master although that has all seemed to become a part of me instead a practiced ritual. This is a hugely exciting opportunity for me and I look forward to joining in.


Merry meet :hugs: and welcome home :infinite_roots: @wendy20

I’m Marsha, an Eclectic Solitary Witch, from Colorado. I’m so glad you have joined us, and I’m looking forward to getting to know you better. Welcome to the family :people_hugging:

With love :heart: and magick :dizzy: always


You’re very welcome, @wendy20! :heart:

Singing bowls are amazing! I’ve come really close to getting my own a few times now, but it never ends up being the right one. For now I love to listen to singing bowl meditations, there are a few on youtube that are really nice :notes:

Wishing you all the best with your studies! If you ever feel drawn to sharing about crystals, singing bowls, pendulum work, etc, please feel free to make a post in Witchy Wisdom - it’s a great place to share knowledge and inspiration around the coven! :books::blush:

Blessed be! :sparkles:
