Firstly, Wow. I love this forum. I check in once and a while, and I'm always happy when I do. So many viewpoints, opinions, and experiences!!
Secondly, my thoughts on the OP: I'm new to this path. Officially following this winding road for a little over a year. I heard the term Eclectic Witch, and thought "That sounds about right," because I am often referred to as an eclectic person, in general. But now after reading all these posts I can see why it might or might not bother someone! I'm not bothered by the title personally.
As far as how I think of myself...I called myself a Witchician. Because it makes me giggle, and also, I think it's accurate. There is a lot of witchcraft and wicca that I just love, and really drives my rituals, but there's a bit of chaos magician in me that likes the idea of a practice completely removed from spirituality and religion and just uses my will to create change. Sometimes I feel spiritual, and sometimes I feel practical.
I also didn't know "high" and "low" magic was such a heated topic. Personally, I didn't think of it in those terms. I just, through trial and error, find out what works for me and what doesn't. I had heard the terms, but didn't know much about it. Reading Ashe's post that each is just a descriptor of if you are trying to commune with deity or not makes sense to me. I can't feel upset or offended, I supposed, because I didn't know there was anything to be upset about...(I had a similar experience with some choice curse words in high school after leaving a very sheltered homeschool life )
I think it's the words themselves that could put people on edge just by the fact that "high" (being above than) and "low" (being lower/less than) have attachments that might make one feel that one group thinks they're better than another. In my limited experience, magic practicing people have been pretty darn open-minded.
I guess the short answer is, I believe, there are an infinite number of ways to use magic and create change. People who follow very specific paths may find this "anything goes" approach awful, but if it works it works. Why does it matter how we get our results if we're happy and not hurting anyone? I've found that when I try to force it, or feel like "I have to do this thing on this day at this time" it doesn't feel right, but when I do something impromptu (not haphazard!) I find the whole process goes much more smoothly.
How about we all do what works for us, and not get bent out of shape when someone does it differently?
