Life As a Solitary Green Witch!

Hi, I'm Laurali! I live in a tiny, seaside fishing village in Florida where I nurture my plants, go hiking in the woodland, and wear flowers in my hair.

Life As a Solitary Green Witch: What It's Like

I live my life as a solitary green witch and today, I want to talk with you about what that's like for me! I'm one of those people that kind of fell naturally onto the path of witchcraft, with very little effort on my part. As it turns out, nature is my muse!

It's the flowers, trees, and grass that connect me with the craft. It's the natural healing herbal remedies and botanical style mix that send my heart through the roof and over the moon!

What does all this really mean? It means that the natural wonder of mother nature has helped me to build a strong connection with the faerie realm and the goddesses that work within it. It means that I live a slower lifestyle than your average person and that this is done intentionally on my part.

By slowing down and smelling the roses, so to speak, I've been able to build a solitary green witch lifestyle that suits me really well. There was a time in my life where I never thought I would become a witch, let alone find myself talking about it so openly, but here I am with bells on!

I'm at a point in my life where I'm owning who I am and coming out of the closet. I'm a witch! I've been a green nature witch since 2013 and it was right around that time that I had discovered that I already was living as one, only this time it flowed more naturally to me.

I was already living a magical lifestyle and doing magical spells and incantations without knowing that's what I was doing. I was already doing shadow work and astral traveling, without knowing that there was a name for it. I was already on the pathway to becoming a green nature witch and a faerie shaman unbeknownst to me.

Around that time, my daughters did a sacred ceremony and became witches officially. My youngest daughter and I really embraced it at first! My middle child is afraid of it, so she has backed her magic into a corner for the time being. I'm still convinced she'll come back around to it someday!

What's cool about it is that my youngest daughter Chloe is a Pisces water sign so she has always been good at working with water spells, potions, and elixirs. I mean, the girl has a gift when it comes to working with the watery realm of the moon!

Me, on the other hand, really embraced the element of fire and earth, which often go hand-in-hand together! At first, many of my spells were a shot in the dark.

I would light sparklers or burn incantations over the sink during a full moon as I called on Goddess Isis for guidance. Goddess Isis is the Egyptian Goddess of the moon and death life cycles and she works intensely fast! I mean, this goddess just burns up the energy and charges the air during a full moon cycle.

Unfortunately, my spells worked a little too fast or a little too good at times. Like, I did a love spell with her, and the next day, went to the hospital and got hit on by a male nurse. Luckily, this lead me down the path of realizing that I wasn't ready for a relationship yet at that time in my life.

Whatever the case may be, I've always done witchcraft my own way and usually in solitary confinement. There have been a few times I've done spells with my daughter Chloe and I'm not going to lie, the girl just radiates powerful magical energy!

For the most part, I like doing my witchcraft alone because I'm not really alone. At the end of the day, I'm working with the nature spirits and the fairy queens. I work with moon goddesses and the like on a daily basis to aid my craft.

So, I'm not really alone! I feel like this allows me to stand in my power and truth, without another person putting doubt into my head about the context of my spell. I feel like that's really important when it comes to finding your own personal brand of witchcraft.

My witchcraft journey has evolved naturally over time, as it should be. It's become the heart of everything I say and do, whether it be spending time in the forest to ground my energy or building a life around my tarot cards.

I start my day with magical morning hikes in the woodland where I spend my time communicating with nature spirits and gathering wildflowers for spell magic. I always try to end my day on a positive note, by saying good night to my houseplants or bathing in the light of the moon.

In all the spaces in between, I wear crystals in my bra and wear flowers in my hair to try to amplify the magic within me as I go about my day. Whether it be writing my blog posts so that I can connect with my readers or simply listening to the voice of my own intuition, I'm always harvesting more magic and weaving it throughout my life!

I have come to find that real-life magic is within us and all around us! It beckons us to come to play. It is neither complicated nor subdued, but a free-flowing waterfall of natural healing energy that makes its way into our hearts and lives.

Life As a Solitary Green Witch: What It's Like

What I like about being a solitary green witch is that I get to live life my own way, which is really important to me! I'm a free spirit and I don't like to be bogged down by rules and plans. I'm the type of person who lives life very much in the moment!

Therefore, being a solitary witch makes perfect sense for me as a person. I like to craft my nature spells on the go and spend hours in the butterfly garden snapping photographs of bumblebees and botanicals. I like to take my time with everything I do and there's something about working with herbs that makes you slow down and appreciate the enchanted forest even more.

Why did I choose a solitary path versus joining a coven of witches? Again, I don't like groupthink when it comes to rules and regulations. I like knowing at the end of the day that I only have to answer to myself. My spirit helpers are only here to offer me guidance but at the end of the day, it always comes down to following my heart and taking a leap of faith!

Working alone allows me the freedom to let the spells that I want to work come to me freely, unbidden in my mind. I've always been kind of a loner and a non-conformist so this style suits me best when it comes to the craft.

I feel like when choosing a witchy path to go down, it's good to stay within the confines of your personality. If you're an extrovert, I think a witch coven could be a great boost for your spellwork! However, if you're an introvert at heart, it's best to stick with what you know and where you feel most comfortable in your environment.

Why did I choose the path of green nature witch? For me, it feels like the path of green witch chose me! It was a natural fit for the slow living lifestyle that I already had going here in Florida.

Being a green witch means that I get to spend more time with my herbs, healing crystals, flowers, and plants. It gives me a direct link to animism, which is at the core of my belief system. Animism is where you believe that every rock, flower, and blade of grass is ensouled.

Working with botanicals has proved my belief in animism to be true! I put a lot more deliberate thought into how my plants are feeling, if my crystals like the spot they are sitting in, or if the flowers want to come to join me and live in my hair as part of how I wear whimsical style in the woodland!

It feels like when I found my personal brand of witchcraft, in turn, I really found myself! This is the first time in my life where I feel I am living my true life authentically and standing in my power.

It was like this was the person that I was always meant to be, only this time I'm stepping into my power and my truth. I'm embracing kinfolk style, slow living, and claiming it as my own.

Life has become something of a dream to me at times. I find that using seashells to hear the ocean or making a spell from graveyard dirt comes as natural to me as breathing. Sometimes, it feels as if I'm floating on a feather!

Al of this has really made me love, appreciate, and understand my signature witch style even more. Being a solitary green witch has rekindled my childhood love and fondness for nature. It's made me become the person that I was always meant to be, filled with the magic of my own making!

What's interesting about magic is that when you first start witching responsibly, you feel utterly and completely helpless. That's why many of us come to witchcraft in the first place. Performing spells helps you take your power back, helps you to feel in control in a world full of chaos.

For the very first time in my entire life, I feel like life isn't just happening to me. It feels like I have some control over what happens to me and I use high magicks to make things happen. Finding my path has been a lot like finding myself, after groping in the darkness for so many years.

It's a beautiful thing to behold to find your true, authentic self. It's a wonderful thing to live a magical life and incorporate the elements of magic into your green nature witch time capsule wardrobe. It makes you feel powerful and in control, like the magician of your own destiny and fate.

What's not to love about that? At the end of the day, that's what we're all looking for. A pathway filled with fairy lights that will always light the way for us, illuminating truths along the way.

Where will the path of nature witch lead to?  I'm hoping that someday the path of the solitary green witch leads me to be able to help others with my spellwork.  In fact, in so many ways, I already see that happening in my current reality.

It sounds so cheesy, but I really do love helping other people.  It fills my heart with so much love and gratitude to help a fellow student on the journey to spiritual awakening.  

Whether it be through tarot readings, energy healing letters, or giving sage advice, helping people is at the core of what I love to do.  After all, what's the point in having so much power if I can't help the people that come into my life in some small way?  

I really do hope to make a difference in the world by developing free content with loads of charm and value for people that are meant to walk similar paths in life.  I always say whoever is meant to find my blog, will find my blog!

In addition to that, I plan to always be learning in the school of life!  I throw myself passionately into whatever falls in line with my path, whether it be feng shui, reiki healing, or vinyasa flow yoga.  I feel like we are meant to come here and learn and be students of life.

This especially proves true if you are walking a witchy pathway.  There's more and more spiritual growth to be had and spells to be made.  

This year, I joined Witch Academy, and it has really boosted my witchcraft to whole new levels of awakening.  I can't say enough good things about Avery and The Traveling Witch blog!  She is truly following her path with ease and grace.  

My hopes and dreams for witchcraft are to be able to help people and to continuously deep dive into my spiritual practices!  It feels good to be in a good place, but I never sit on my laurels for very long.  I like to always be growing as a spiritual person and I feel like that's what I came here to do as a green witch.

Life knows no boundaries when you're a witch!  You find your path, you get into alignment with the universe, and you follow your heart to where it meanders.  And, that my friends, is my life as a solitary green witch and what it's like for me.
