Forget everything you think you know about witches, psychics or shamans. Society, films and even the media, have brainwashed us to fear the unknown, but social platforms are slowly changing the way we view spirituality and old religions though individual stories. It might surprise you to know that people accused of being a witch were simply herbalists, healers and midwives. Today’s witches feel no need to hide, although some still choose to keep their practice private, making connecting with a likeminded coven a breeze. Instagram is one of the best places to highlight your work through photography and videos, network, and even get tips on becoming a witch or shaman yourself. When seeking a shaman or psychic nothing compares to one-on-one meetings, but social media allows us to cast a wider net. Whatever type of spiritual fulfillment or answers you seek, these Instagram accounts happily provide. We highlight accounts that help us get inspired, celebrate our differences and teach us to keep an open mind.
We present our list of Witches, Psychics, Shamans and Mystics to follow right now.

Bruja, artist, storyteller, Bri Luna, is the mastermind behind The HoodWitch. The HoodWitch grew into a brand that stands out and often gets recognized for creating an online community where there was none. As a Black and Mexican woman, Bri Luna did not see herself represented and decided to do something about it.
“Being a Black and Mexican woman, I always want to feel like I’m being represented, but that was missing. Classes and workshops that were available were primarily focused on Eurocentric forms of spirituality and Pagan traditions. Not so much African or Indigenous or Mexican.” — Bri Luna
