FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS SPIRITUAL GUIDANCE?
In these modern times, there is a growing trend towards eclectic spirituality as opposed to organised religion. It offers individuals the freedom to individualise their experience. However, eclectic paganism can sometimes be a lonely journey; especially for those who wish to keep their beliefs under wraps. Spiritual guidance is for those who could benefit from counselling and support on their journey, especially when they are just starting. Spiritual guidance also benefits those who have experienced an adverse life event, or those who have simply just lost touch with their practices and wish to "stay on track". Above all else, facing life's challenges feels much easier when you have a good witch in your corner.
WHAT RELIGION DOES DESPOINA FOLLOW?
Despoina does not ascribe to one religion. Respect and love is nurtured for all ideologies, as long as none are harmed. Loosely, the rituals and practices we follow reflect modern paganism. This mostly encompasses Wicca, herbalism and many other practices which have been adopted and adapted throughout the ages.
WHAT DOES SPIRITUAL SUPPORT ENTAIL?
In these modern times, it is easy for the spirit's flame to dim. Many of us have lost contact with our roots, our guides, our connection to Mother Earth and the magic that was so apparent when we were children. Most of us have had our hearts broken, and lost pieces of our soul over the years. You may have lost connection with your inner child, your younger self, or your spiritual guides. You may feel under attack spiritually or emotionally. You may have found yourself lost, disconnected and not caring for your soul. We offer the tools and guidance to reconnect you to your magical self once again.
Ongoing support is only available to existing clients, and is subject to approval.
WHAT IF I AM NOT SATISFIED WITH DESPOINA ARCADIA?
If you are not satisfied with your initial session with Despoina, a full refund is granted with full respect and gratitude. Unfortunately due to the nature of spellcasting, spells cannot be refunded or undone.
IS THIS DARK MAGIC? OR A CULT?
A resounding NO! Despoina works with white light, love and positive energy. The love of the craft and for others is the source of power, it is not made; only gently re-directed. Despoina will not support any decision that may harm another, either directly or indirectly.
WHY DOES DESPOINA WEAR A VEIL?
When one takes the veil they begin to understand the many biases we hold as human beings, particularly towards others we may judge on "face value". We should all love, regardless of gender, colour, background or age. Also, many modern paganists and white witches prefer anonymity. Clients are welcome to take the veil if they feel more comfortable to do so.
