MY STORY

​Hello there!

I am Debiparna aka the Cosmic Sea Witch of the Mystic Coven. I am a secular occult practitioner, bringing here all my eccentric woo-woo beliefs (aka subjective personal gnosis) under one umbrella. I promise to try and demystify the occult, cut out the bullshit and always be transparent with you. I am not in the business of selling solutions in a bottle that will magically sort out your life. I am here to help people discover their own inner magic to manifest their own miracles.

 

Some of you may know me for my work as a journalist. But now, as you can tell, I have strayed away from the corporate way of life. I still write because that is what I love to do. However, my 20s were all about chasing after and achieving all the fantastical dreams child-me had --- become an entertainment journalist, review films for a living, accidentally find myself in the spotlight that I eventually shy away from to live a quiet life of luxury. I literally manifested the dream life I had imagined would make me happy in my 20s.

However, as clichés tend to go, once I got almost all I thought I wanted, I realised I needed only one thing to truly feel fulfilled --- a quiet life of luxury with the ones I love is now simply the basis of it all. I wanted to help people in whatever way I could and finally the Universe was able to knock some sense in my head and help me follow the hitherto unseen path lying right ahead of me.

I delved into the world of astrology and other occult topics fairly young. My grandfather was an astrologer of repute ---- from filmmakers to politicians to doctors and even men of shadier persuasions with deep pockets were members of his extensive clientele. He quit his job to pursue something he enjoyed (and found fulfilling) at a time when it was unheard of to give up a pension. He dabbled in different things before figuring it out for himself. I would like to believe that maybe he and my maternal grandpa (who loved me dearly but was only in my life on this plane for a very short while) have guided me in their own ways to follow my happiness from some other corner of the Universe.

I also added my father's services to this website after a few months after many of my clients requested to book appointments with him. He started dabbling in astrology post-retirement, even though much like me his forays into the occult started fairly young. (You can book a Vedic astrology reading from him here). I've learnt as much from him as I've from my mother's unique approach towards religion, spirituality, and inherent knack for standing up for what is right. She developed her own belief system despite growing up with a rather doctrinally devout mother (my maternal grandmother who taught me plenty about ritualistic ceremonies in her time). My mother is a sceptic who still has faith in a higher power. She always told me that she doesn't fear ghosts but people as they can do damage no supernatural entity can, so that is a good thing to remember if you happen to be a Witch or Occultist who works with entities and deities of any sort.

I am eclectic in my practice because my Maa guided my thoughts in that direction from early on. A healthy dose of scepticism is always required to stay grounded in reality when delving into the occult. It is also helpful when you need to tell apart between the whispers of the Universe and anxiety-riddled thoughts. There is no place for delusions and false sense of grandeur in the world of the occult unless you want to remain an ego-driven self-serving maniac.

I am who I am today because of the guys, gals, and non-binary pals who came before me in my family. It is their struggle that enriches my will to help others who may be struggling. I remain fierce in my softness because of them. I remain kind in the face of harshness because of them. We are our ancestors' wildest dreams come true, after all. I try to embody that daily. And I like to impart that knowledge to others too. So, join the Coven right here!
