Here at the Otherworldly Oracle, we would like to be as transparent as possible and make known our knowledge and experience in the craft as well as our educational backgrounds. In addition, let us be clear in saying that we indeed combine SPG (shared personal gnosis) with UPG (unverified personal gnosis) on every blog post and podcast episode.
Our Values here at the OO including the blog, podcast, and our FaceBook group:
Kitty Fields established the popular Otherworldly Oracle blog back in 2018 and has since dedicated her time and energy into building the website and podcast alongside her witchy sister and friend Allorah Rayne (Wayfaring Witch). We seek to educate all levels of magical practitioners and spiritual rebels in ancestor magick, astrology, mythology, modern magick, sabbats and much more. Without judgment, without “rules”, without restrictions. We leave YOUR practice and path in YOUR hands.
There are literally thousands of witchcraft blogs out there and so we know how difficult it is to locate authentic information. We promise, here at Otherworldly Oracle, that we do not hire writers who aren’t witches or magical practitioners themselves. And we also promise that you’ll never read something written by Artificial Intelligence. Only by witches for witches.
Kitty Fields (Resident Writer and Owner)
From a young age I felt a connection to nature that the people around me seemed to miss. My first love of nature came in the form of trees and plants. Instinctively, I knew to use aloe vera from my grandmother’s garden to soothe a skinned knee. I also knew spring onions made a tasty snack, as well as honeysuckles, sunflower seeds, and tomatoes right off the vine.
My grandmother taught me to identify wild mint and infuse it into sun tea. I had dream after dream of flying, going to other places, and talking to otherworldly creatures like trolls, wolves, and half-animal half-human beings. In my teens, I came across a book in a thrift store: Power of the Witch by Laurie Cabot. I quickly realized what I was and studied all I could get my hands on (which was difficult at that time because Wicca wasn’t popular nor encouraged in a small town in America in the early 2000’s). I taught myself how to cast a circle, draw down the moon, and communicate with nature spirits and ghosts resident in my home at the time.
When I was twenty years old, I was initiated into an eclectic Wiccan coven of 13. I enjoyed congregating with people of like mind and kindred spirit. We celebrated an entire Wheel of the Year together, then unfortunately, went our separate ways. Since then, I’ve practiced in secret, and more recently in the open, for the past eighteen years. I’ve taught others how to walk the path of the witch, and I’ve performed numerous house cleansings and past life readings. In 2016, I studied and became attuned to Usui Reiki and was certified a Level 2 practitioner. I use Reiki nearly every day on myself, family members, in my craft and in the garden. Today I enjoy studying the complex roots of witchcraft, Witch Trial history, American folk magic, folklore, and mythology. I am currently learning the Elder futhark runes and focusing on green and kitchen witchcraft. Spiritually, my practice is heavily based on my ancestors: honoring them with an altar and offerings, praying to them, and generally including them in my daily life.
Educationally, I studied Science and received my Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing in 2017. I’ve written 2 technical manuals, 2 nonfiction books, 4 fictional novels, multiple magazine entries, and over 500 online articles. I’ve won a few awards for my folklore pieces, as well as been invited to international writing conventions for my work online. If you need to contact me directly, you may email me at email@example.com. Or find me on FaceBook or IG under the name Kitty Fields, Otherworldly Oracle.
