Has anyone come out to their family about being a Luciferian or a witch? I don’t want want to break my family’s heart but I am so tired of being prayed for. On the other hand, I don’t know if they will pray even more for me if I disclose this.
No and I don’t advise it. No pearls before swine: it’s a waste and causes problems you don’t need.
Not saying your family is “swine”, that’s how much they understand, and the Christian religion teaches them to be desperately afraid of non Christian concepts, and frightened people are unpredictable and dangerous, just let sleeping dogs lie, especially if you live with them.
That sound like a you problem tbh, not theirs. They mean well, after all.
Maybe try some shadow work to discover and release why this bothers you, so that it doesn’t. Only you are responsible for how you feel, and “nothing is good or bad but thinking makes it so”.
I think that would be a happier long term solution for everyone.
Thankyou for this great advice.
I made the mistake and told my parents. My dad would try to force me to do the sign of the cross outside the church and say a prayer before dinner.
My mother took it as a joke. When she realised that i wasnt joking she called me immature and that i shouldnt be taken seriously.
My cousins try to bring me back to christianity… and as far as it comes saying it to non spiritual people, they get scared of you and they stop talking to you, they make fun of you or they dont take it seriously.
Other type of witches like wicca will try to make you take seriously the bad karma you will get.
Oh and i have one person who is trying his best to convert me to islam.
Please disclose it only to people who you suspect follow the same path and are friendly. There are some witches who will try putting spells on you too to see you get destroyed.
Thankyou for sharing your experience and I won’t tell them nothing.
I don’t think so, because for one prayer may send unwanted energies your way, and on another note it just feels unnecessary like you “need” that kind of help.
I don’t think you should make it the poster’s problem just because you don’t agree with it.
I was concerned that by allowing “prayer over my life,” could offend the demons I work with.
I am still pondering over how to handle this but I won’t let them know my workings.
To be honest, I had this exact same conversation last night and what I feel is this, you shouldn’t really tell them because you honestly don’t need their help, and if people say otherwise it’s because they feel like somehow you need their help or your path wasn’t good enough on its own.
People are judgmental idiots and will try to demonize anything just because it’s different.
However, for your problem, you don’t have to worry about the demons being offended, however they might tell you you should cut yourself off energetically from the religions and energies of your family.
You may be guided to do a ritual to get them to stop if it’s enough of a problem energetically.
Ok, thankyou for the advice!
Honestly, unless there’s a chance you’re going to reneg and become very Christian again, so what? I think the demons are just gonna laugh it off.
“Oh look…they’re doing it again. ”
I mean, those people are gonna pray one way or the other.
If they don’t know your practice and are just praying for your good health and wealth, etc…well…why not take that blessing? Lol
It’s free energy
You’re operating from a victim mindset where they afflict you with their Christian prayers.
When you could say, “hell yeah, give me all the good useful energy and vibes and I’ll leave the rest…”
You’ve made some good points thankyou!
I was blessed with a very accepting extended family. Anyone outside…not so much.
I tell literally nobody about my beliefs or lifestyle. It’s no one’s business.
If only I had that kinda mentality…
To me, it’s on the same level as my sex life ie private and personal. I don’t feel any need to tell people who I’m having sex with, so why would I tell anyone about consorting with spirits?
No and I don’t plan on ever doing it. They won’t accept it and I don’t need to be drug into another prayer circle nor am I interested in any impromptu “casting out the demons” sessions.
I understand they’ll never accept my lifestyle and that’s fine. There’s no need for me to cause unnecessary issues/problems/drama with them. Them not knowing doesn’t affect my craft. And for them, ignorance is bliss.
I don’t really hide it but i don’t really walk in dancing and singing this is who i am i think the advice you got from others here is pretty solid and there’s really nothing to be gained.
I was going to reply the exact same thing. Never told my family and even close friends I don’t talk to them about it. No one’s business but my own.
I did tell my close circle of friends and my mother. I don’t know why, but I had a strong feeling to do it… and it didn’t turn out badly at all. First of all, I am incredibly lucky and secondly, the country I live in (Czech Republic) is very atheistic and magic is seen differently here. My mother has her reservations, but she doesn’t stop me from doing my job. Anyway, this matter is very individual and depends on many factors to be considered. If you are not 100% sure that everything is in your favour, don’t tell anyone and enjoy yourself in the shadows.
My family thinks I am a Wiccan. It allows me to practice magic and they never question it.
