Initiated Into Witchcraft: Feminism Is Rooted in the Occult
author | Mack Major
The feminist movement has direct ties to witchcraft and the witch-based religion of Wicca.
Some of the more popular feminists have openly spoken and written about the importance of reviving the archetype of the female witch to promote the cause of and to coincide with the rise of the feminist movement.
In Berkeley, California two college roommates began exploring their shared interest in Goddess Spirituality and the occult. This was in the late 1970's when feminism was in its prime. After undergoing a supernatural experience involving visions of goddess energy and what they both described as a transmission of ancient wisdom, Karen Vogel and Vicki Nobel awoke from their experience and shortly thereafter created their own tarot card deck. (Tarot cards are used as a tool of divination, where spirits are believed to guide the drawing of the cards in the deck which are then interpreted based on the images shown to reveal a person’s destiny.)
This particular tarot card deck created by the two newly anointed prophetesses of feminism was made specific for the female gender. They named the deck Motherpeace Tarot. And it's been a highly popular divination tool for feminists ever since.
One person in particular who loved the Motherpeace tarot cards so much that she wrote a glowing public review of them is the famed African-American author Alice Walker.

You might remember Ms. Walker for her groundbreaking work of fiction which later became an iconic film, The Color Purple. Alice wrote concerning the tarot deck:
"The Motherpeace Tarot has been a wise and loving oracle. A clear mirror, also, that constantly shows the truest face."—Alice Walker www.motherpeace.com
IN AN INTERVIEW WITH FEMINIST.COM, Ms. Walker revealed a few interesting things about her own spirituality:
”Well, I learned transcendental meditation when I lived in New York and after a divorce. And it was so much like the way I had lived as a little child, which was just completely merged with nature. So much so that I didn’t know I wasn’t the tree I was looking at, you know? It was just a complete oneness—that sense of oneness and the ego goes somewhere else temporarily. And so that became the foundation of how I could move through the world, do my work, balance raising a child, and being on the road a lot—out of necessity, really making a living—teaching."
"And I have maintained some form of meditation, yoga, a lot of walking. Tonglen, which I learned some years ago, because it’s a practice that thanks to Pema Chodron we get from these amazing, ancient Tibetans who figured it all out. That you don’t have to just drown in your sorrow and pain, that you can actually learn to live with it and to accept it and to take it in, make your heart really super, super big to hold it, and then to send out to yourself and to the world whatever it is that you would prefer. And lo and behold, I found that the practice worked."
"And in general, I find that the practices like Native American drumming, for instance, which I also do, chanting, sweats—all of these things really help us. I also am very fond of the Motherpeace tarot deck and have used it for, I don’t know, as long as it’s been in existence I guess. And also the I Ching. The I Ching I consider one of the great, mysterious, magical gifts to humanity. It is such a divine oracle it comes close to being a living being, like a tree or something."
Tonglen is a Tibetan Buddhist meditation where a person opens their heart and mind to receive inside of them all spiritual beings—good and bad ones—showing them compassion, and calling on them in a time of need.
The I Ching has been described by some who practice black magic as one of the most powerful streams of occult energy in existence.
MS. WALKER FURTHER STATED WITHIN THE INTERVIEW: "So I think that for many of us, what has happened is that we have perhaps taken some parts of the religions we were raised in, and we have incorporated them into our belief systems—with gratitude. You know, like the teachings of Jesus I really love, and I love the Gnostic Gospels and the Nag Hammadi scrolls, sermons, or whatever you call them, parables I guess. But we’re making a new religion. Religion is going to be more self-styled. It’s going to be less and less a group thing, because we’re all taking from various traditions, and we’re all also open to divinity just as who we are! It’s a very one-on-one kind of thing. And once you realize that you are just part of the whole thing, then you just kind of worship that, and yourself, and everything—all is one."
There you have it. The woman who penned The Color Purple was and still is heavily into witchcraft, shamanic practices and occultism.

Someone needs to let Ms. Walker know that you cannot love Jesus AND the occult. Jesus isn't a cheap lover—you can't just treat Him like some sort of spiritual floozy!
"You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons. You cannot partake of the table of the Lord and the table of demons." [1 Corinthians 10:21]
The Color Purple and the subsequent movie with the same title directed by Steven Spielberg lit a flame of animosity towards black men that caused feminism to spread within the black community like a Texas brush fire. Where do you think the spark of inspiration to create such a divisive force in the black community came from?
Alice Walker continues to write and to be a prominent voice for feminist ideals. She currently sits on the advisory board at feminist.com. Now let me ask YOU, how many of you love, enjoy and list The Color Purple as being among your all-time favorite movies?

Now let me ask an even deeper question, What if Alice Walker essentially channeled that story through one of those spirits she's been welcoming into her heart and mind all of these years?
Have you unwittingly placed yourself under the influence of someone who uses occult witchcraft power to produce works of entertainment—and if so have you been set free yet?
