...I was just wondering... My grandma was a cunning woman, very canny. She grew many herbs, foraged wild plants and read the tea leaves. She would bless your coming and going by throwing herbs and flowers in front or behind you. My great aunt, her older sister was a psychic, laid-on-hands, read the crystals and was a midwife.
My whole immediate family is Wiccan, even my grown son who says that a male witch is A WITCH, not a wizard and certainly not a warlock, the word that in the Burning Times meant betrayer ! If you saw the movie " Practical Magic "---we are sort of like that : wacky, happy and very alternative !
Hmmm... Are there any from hereditary witch families on Cafemom ???

So while I have no admitted heredity, I definitely have one in my family.
It's also worth noting that I definitely have a spiritual heredity. Without a doubt I was "born a witch!" I know that statement upsets people as they start to think of fictional stories and shows like Charmed, where they are born with powers and such. But instead I'm referring to more of a "spiritual memory." Even as I was raised to be a strict Christian, and never exposed to any teachings about a Goddess or other Pagan teachings besides being told they were simply fiction, I knew something gravely different. I was just a small child when I openly denied the teachings of my family and embraced the belief in many Gods & Goddesses and started my walk on a Pagan Path...

As far as I know, I am the only one but there are several women who have "abilities". They just know things. I have that little talent myself.
