I think it applies to most witches when I say we like to learn. We like to strengthen our minds and spirituality. We acquire tools (knowledge and tangible tools in some cases) to assist us in magickal workings. So why does it seem some witches are not using those tools with maximum intent to change a situation that might seem undesirable? There are a few possible answers to that question.
- They know there are good aspects of that situation and they don’t feel ready to let go yet. I live with my Dad while I am nearing 30 years of age. Some people would think I should be moving Heaven and Earth to move out. I am comfortable here though. I am a Daddy’s girl, and I want to enjoy my time in his house instead of rushing to get away. Sometimes people focus on what they see wrong and don’t see what is good. Witches often see what others do not, so it is best to be slow to judge.
- Divine might be helping them by not granting what they ask for. Sometimes what we want and think we need is not what we actually need. We can do spellwork every week with no results if our Matron and Patron deem that to be in our best interests. For example, struggle forces us to learn and be stronger. You might look at a witch and think she must not be true to her path if she keeps circling into depression. However, that depression could be helping her to grow. Every time she steps out of that dark cloud, she has an opportunity to reflect and figure out what heals her. Her strength is increased because she reaffirms she is a surviver. Her experience enables her to relate to others who are suffering, and thus she becomes better able to help those people. When she finds herself in that dark cloud again, she has to ask herself what has brought her there in order to regain balance and avoid that cause in the future.
- Being a wise one doesn’t mean we have everything figured out. It means accepting that figuring things out will be ongoing in life. It takes some people longer than others to figure out what works for them. Some witches learn a lot about what doesn’t work before they learn what does work. There is value in both categories of wisdom.
There could very well be more possible answers to the above question. Hopefully this has provided some insight. Blessed be, y’all.
