What is Witchcraft?

Witchcraft is a broad term that varies culturally so is difficult to define with precision.  You'll find that the term witchcraft is deeply personal but at it's core, witchcraft is the practice of harnessing the energy of the universe to bring about your will.

The more you study and learn about witchcraft, and related religions or beliefs, you'll find that your journey is very personal to you as an individual.  I encourage you to take what feels right for you, not just from this blog, but from other resources you come across.  There is no set path, no "one size fits all".  It's entirely up to you what you bring into your own practice.

Happily, there is no such a thing as "black" or "white" magic.  It's entirely your own will and intention that dictates the outcome of your magic and spell casting.  If, for example, you wanted to harm a person who has done you ill then it would be your will that manifests and not a mysterious "black magic".

Many witches enjoy using tools like wands, athames, candles and more in their practice of witchcraft.  Whilst these tools can be helpful to focus your mind, to put yourself in a magical mood, they're not a necessity for practicing magic.  You can have as much or as little as you like when it comes to aids and tools.

As a witch, you'll discover a deep connection to nature.  The seasons, the cycles of the moon, animals, herbs, flowers and crystals can aid you in your craft.  Personally, this is what I love most about my journey so far, a love of, and connection to, nature and all it has to offer.

For those of you starting out on your witching journey remember to trust your own intuition and your inner power.  Every blessing to you!
