What is a pop culture witch? Well 6 months ago I couldn’t have told you. But once I learned what it was it somehow responded an “aha!” from me.
Why? Because I’ve always incorporated similar thinking into my path! I never thought there was a name for it.
From what i understand, a pop culture witch, is someone whom incorporates modern deities, characters from stories, movies, or TV shows into their practice as well as any magick they resonate with that is found in written or televised entertainment. Including video games even.
For instance, are you a witch & you love the mythology of Melisandre (Fire priestess) & her Red good, Rhllor? Dont sweat it! You can work one or both into your practice!
Are you a witch& you resonate with the mythology of the daedra inthe video game Skyrim? Work it in!
The point here is that there isnt a difference between the deities of ancient mythology compared to modern mythology. Intention is all that matters.
All characters that are written about exist on some level or another. However some are older than others. Some arent exactly as you know them to be. Some are sleeping, some are awakened and their own will is very developed.
Some have little power, some have great power. It all depends on them. This is why and how we are able to create servitores. And how thought forms can develop a will of their own.
But with this truth also comes the opposition. There are entities that humans didn’t create and were here prior and will be after. They do have the most control as they are rhe watchers, guardians.
They are nameless for reason. Knowing an entity’s name gives you influence upon them. Not control. Influence. And very little. Enough to get their attention.
The point of this post is to remind everyone of the power they hold with simply their imagination. Tread lightly. Not with fear but with the desire to learn and take responsibility.
For instance, I have a strong connection with the character, Eric Northman, from True Blood. I have rewritten his backstory and the Character feels “alive” to me. As much as a vampire angel hybrid can!
I will have to share this backstory with all of you one day! It is amazing, indeed.
You can develop a partnership with any character from novels, movies, TV shows, and otherwise that are modern and you feel a connection to.
Life energy isnt only present in us, animals and nature. It is present in what we create as well. Because many times those realms or worlds were channeled to be expressed and shared with others.
And other times those realms we’re created by our own will or influenced. Always respect the imagination. For it has a power most of us do not understand but will be very soon!
Mark my words.
