Reminders for Witches with Mental Illness, Chronic Illness, Disabilities, or Disorders

  • Creating boundaries in your witchcraft is healthy, respect your own boundaries and don’t let anyone give you shit because of them
  • Taking care of yourself is just as important as researching your practice, you need to be okay before anything else
  • Making your craft accessible to your mental and/or physical disabilities is a right, not a privilege
  • Witchcraft can 100% be used as a coping skill for mental illness (as long as it is practiced carefully and realistically)
  • You do not ever need to disclose your craft to anyone
  • You are not less of a witch for having different needs than Neurotypical or Non-disabled people
  • Your craft is as unique as you are and that is a good thing

PLEASE DON’T LET PEOPLE TELL YOU THAT YOU ARE LESS OF A WITCH BECAUSE YOU TAKE MEDICATIONS. Please keep taking your medications IN ADDITION to witchy stuff. Never quit medications on your own without talking to a doctor first, that can be very dangerous and hurt you! You are NOT less magical because you take medications. I promise.

This is true even if you’re not a witch but part of the spiritual community. Even if you’re a medium or an intuitive empath; don’t let naysayers convince you that you are less spiritual because you need medication. Don’t allow anyone to make you feel bad for taking care of your health and wellbeing even if it requires medication. Plant-based medicine might be what was originally intended for us but until we come into a place of higher universal consciousness, conventional medicine is what we’re stuck working with. You’re doing the best you can with what you’ve got. We all are. 💖
