Initiation by the Ancestral Master Witches of one's Folk into Traditional Witchcraft is by way of Ordeal. The Ordeal is not scripted by any human. Self-initiation or any initiation by human intention (by a coven or incarnate Master Witch, for example), does however, alert the Divine Cosmic Folk Spirits (including the weavers of Destiny, the Norns) that one wishes to be initiated by these Spirits into the Mystery Tradition of the Ancestors. Witchcraft is ultimately a Mystery Tradition. The initiation itself is made manifest through an unscripted Ordeal (which may last years or even a lifetime) set into motion by the Cosmos, whether requested by the initiate (through self-initiation or initiation by coven or Master Witch) or whether chosen (not requested by the initiate) by the Ancestral Spirits of one's Folk. A true initiatory Ordeal radically transforms you.
