Hi, I’m Teighe!
I’ve spent my life developing, researching, and practicing theories in religion, spirituality, and modern psychology to figure out how they all relate to living a fulfilling and infinitely magical life without feeling forced to adhere to fear-based dogma. That’s a mouthful, isn’t it? In a nutshell, I want to know what works and why so that I can strip it down or build it up according to my own customized life needs.
I discovered, as I became more and more open about my research and practices, that many other people also feel this same desire to get away from enforced structure and instead, get to the root of spirituality and magic that WORKS. With all the traditions and religions available to people, it can be hard to find something that fits, and even harder to sift through the structural elements of those systems to understand how and why they work, both on a psychological level, and on a metaphysical plane.
While I’m initiated in both modern and ancient traditions that practice witchcraft, and have studied and practiced many more, I came to realize just how much modern psychology factors into successful magic… That psychology and spirituality are just two branches of the same tree that bears life-changing fruit, and suffers from being segregated in study and in practice.
Trance, for example, is an incredible tool for creating powerful shifts in a person’s life and is induced in everything from ceremonial magic to meditation to watching TV, so I became a meditation fanatic and eventually certified in hypnosis by the National Guild of Hypnotists. Likewise, I uncovered the power that words have in ritual practices and in everyday life, and so became certified in Neurolinguistic Programming, the science of behavioral and language patterns.
I did this all in the spare moments I had when I wasn’t developing my animation agency and trying to survive gradschool. Finally, in 2016, I founded CityWitches with the intent of sharing my experience discovering the intersection between witchcraft and modern psychology for self development. A tiny Facebook group and a poorly managed instagram account swiftly developed into a huge community of witches and people searching for the answer to how to make their lives more fulfilling without having to sign on for all the “other stuff” that sometimes comes with religion… if they don’t want to.
I invite you to join the CityWitches community and share this adventure with me and the brave CityWitches learning, questioning, and evolving real magic.
Much love, Teighe
