First of all let me explain, I am not an Initiate of a real life coven per-say and the little glimpse that I have been blessed to acquire, is coming from My Lady Mentor who places me at her right hand in helping her manifest her vision of transforming her online group to the likes of a Coven because of my tech skills. She is a Crone, Initiate and Teacher in her own real life Coven/Temple for many decades now and has earned her Crown. She is legit, the real deal and I've known her for many years now and we regularly converse on the phone. This ain't no fly by night person, someone whom I just meet, who is inexperienced and just wants to up and run a online Coven to fulfill some fanciful ideals of Witchdome.
So basically what I know, is only to what My Lady has shared with me; training me in order that I have this understanding, so I can then take her ideals and bring virtual life to them. I am nothing more than her magic computer genie, her wish is my command.
My Lady, has placed me at the helm of many things. One is being Gatekeeper. I have been given a seat in the process of new members/applicants. Which according to her Coven Tradition requires an application to be filled out and returned within a proper time frame, for all those who are interested in joining. This is not an unusual request in joining a Coven.
I have been place in such of a position, not solely for the use of my intuition but because of my technical know how and that's why My Lady choose me to be included in this process.
It is my responsibility to send out applications to interested candidates that were invited. I must say, that the amount of applications that I send out, a very small percentage if even that, bothers to return it.
Yes, I do understand the purpose of this process, but never less, it still gets my goat every time I send out an application and hear nothing back. I can't help to think what may be going through these individuals mind's once they lay eyes upon our application. Is it too much work? It is too personal? Are they just too good to answer these questions? Or is this just silly? All the while wasting my time, because I do have a life too, you know. Along with My Lady Mentor keeping me fairly busy with other business as well. We are not asking for bank account information, social security numbers, address or anything extremely personal. It's simply a way of getting to know you, because we know nothing about you. A good example of what you should do and expect when joining a Coven is found here:
This is standard procedure! So what's the problem? Not only will they not gain access to My Lady's online Coven, but no other Coven will give them the time of day either. Well then good riddance I say to those who want something for nothing!
Yet despite my gripes, I am humble before the Traditionalists and Coven Elders/Initiates here to say; that my second-hand knowledge and small experience in Coven workings gives me no grounds to truly bitch and rant about this, however even with my slight understanding, boy do I ever sympathize and will continue to support and give respect to you all!
p.s If by chance I have spoken on things that should not, then I will edit and/or remove this blog entry, if it is deemed so.
