Just what is witchcraft, spells, and magick?
Twenty years back, I asked myself those very same questions, and I’m still finding out the answers. My journey began at 15 years of age, with a very understanding mother and a check out to New Age Shop. I keep in mind entering the store with a sense of wonder, and instantly being put at ease by an incredibly sweet aroma that hung over the bookcases. Yet, out of all the potions, oils, and books that filled the place, the something that stood out to me the most was the male behind the counter. He looked more like George Clooney than something out of Halloween Fairytales, which was my very first lesson. Witches look much like everybody else. Obviously you might encounter the occasional witch who looks more fiction than fact but other than those, many are simply your average Joe, the bulk tend to pick to blend in as much as possible. Why? Not everyone is armed with 21st century thinking, and in some cases, witches are put into the very same classification as Satanists, heathens, and simply generally bad people.
I eventually took more interest in spells, and magick, oh and not my spelling of magick. Witches refer to spells and divine aid as magick, not to be puzzled with magic, which we consider to be what you would see at a show, a magician sawing a woman in half, card techniques, and so on. Magick, nevertheless, is spiritual to all Wiccans. Ah yes, back to my story, I eventually took more interest in magic and at the age of 35 acquired an old building in New Jersey and turned into one of the state’s only Wiccan Foreheads. I presently live at home with my 2 terrific kids and my familiar (other half as a lot of individuals call it) delighting in life and being at one with nature.
