I am an American metaphysical healer and author from Martinsville, Virginia in the USA now based just outside Athlone in Ireland for over a decade. I have published four books with Book Hub Publishing and am completing my fifth.
A little information on how things are seen in Virginia.....
The Land Beyond the River
Back home in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, folks often used to refer to other folks with ‘the gift’, as white witches. Black witch…bad. White witch…playing with fire, but not as bad. Witchcraft, in actuality, is a belief system with a focus and respect for the divinity of nature, and is often associated with the use of supernatural practices and abilities. Those using their skills in benevolent forms, such as healing or creating spells to help people, were referred to as practitioners of white magic.
