The 2 Most Common Mistakes New Witches Make And How To Avoid Them

The 2 Most Common Mistakes New Witches Make And How To Avoid Them

New witches have the tendency to all make the same kinds of mistakes. It's hard not to! We're all swimming around in this information soup trying to figure out what's important and and what's true or not.

It can be SO overwhelming!

Today I'll be talking about the 2 biggest mistakes that I see beginner witches making and what you can do about them.

Mistake #1 - New witches learn things in all the wrong order

This one is HUGE but we hardly ever talk about it!

People in witchy communities are always hearing the mantra of "learn as much as possible!" over and over and while that is great advice for beginners it's often more of a bandaid than a real solution!

The problem comes when more experienced witches get asked "how do I get started?" and they immediately think back to how they started. I don't want you to start how I started! I don't want you to start how most of us started!

The majority of more experienced witches learned through just gulping down anything and everything they could find about the craft. Over a long period of time you learn to separate fact from fiction and you can be pretty sure that you haven't missed anything crazy important.

This takes YEARS though.

And in the meantime while you're sorting through all of that info you're confused and lost and quite possibly missing some super vital pieces of information! After all you can't know what you're missing if you don't even know it exists!

Why on earth would I want to tell you to do that when I already know what a beginner absolutely must learn to get a solid start in their craft?

This is the #1 reason why I decided to create my new course. I have been through this process, it bites. I want to give you a resource that will boost you through those initial learning phases not in years but in WEEKS.

I want you to be able to get to a place of confidence and comfortability without the confusion, the struggle and the endless amounts of research hoping you're finding the information that you need.

Skip the struggle and let me show you everything you need to get started!

Mistake #2 - New witches end up trying to learn in a vacuum

There's nothing worse than learning something completely by yourself. Often finding your way into witchy communities can be super hard. You may not know where to find them and then if you DO find them they can be pretty darn unfriendly to beginners!

Social media can be great but it can also feel like talking into a void!

What's the point of even asking a question if all you're going to hear back is crickets?

So instead you end up trying to figure things out all by yourself and without anybody to help it can feel like groping around in the dark for something that you only kind of know to look for.

Talk about frustrating!

In my traditional witchcraft course we circumvent these problems by giving you a community that is open to beginners and run by experts. You'll have a place to ask questions, talk about your craft and interact with other witches right from day one!

You get real interaction in a safe environment with out the hassle.


My goal is to help YOU become the confident, badass witch that you want to be. This can be such a difficult undertaking but it doesn't have to be!
