Becoming a Witch isn't something we acquire. The Witch is already within us. She is someone we become ready and willing to embrace. Someone we realize we ARE.
When a woman embraces her inner witch, she finds new strength. She is overtaken by true serenity. She creates order where there was none before. Her eyes have now been opened.
Witchcraft is the magick of the Earth itself. It is the essence that can bind life together.
Witchcraft is more than just a practice, it is a way of life. A way of looking at the physical and spiritual as a collaborative source of manifestation. We are in tune with nature, in tune with ourselves and in alignment with our all-knowing inner witch.
Witchcraft involves being willing to understand and embrace your true self. It is about exploring your light and learning to celebrate your darkness.
A wise witch knows the shadows come from the light.
Witches seek the sacred knowledge the rest of the world has already forgotten.
Witches work with the truth of the Earth itself.
A Witch awakens within herself qualities of the elements and forces of nature.
Witches escape to the forest to listen to the whispers of nature itself...
Some of the best advice you will ever hear will come from the forest.
Magick is an art; using reality and the world as its canvas.
An experienced witch does not rely on karma. She relies on magickal justice.
Cursing and healing. Left Hand path and Right Hand path. Black and White. Desiring and Repelling. They are all part of the same circle. All interlocking forms of spiritual, magickal and transformational work. Human energies in the spiritual, coming into the material world through perfectly natural means.
There is no such thing as White Magick or Black Magick. If you are participating in magick, you are interfering with the natural order of how life would have developed without your hand in it. You are manipulating reality to suit your own personal needs. Regardless of whether you perceive it as "positive" or "white light", you are manipulating life. If you are afraid of this responsibly or are intimidated by this statement, I encourage you to reexamine your belief structure. Witchcraft requires confidence and courage.
There is nothing more powerful than a witch who knows how to contain her power. Standing comfortably within its mystery and allure.
Our deepest fear is NOT that we are incompetent women. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond physical measure. It is our radiated spiritual strength that most frightens us…
And empowers us!
You are the most powerful tool in your life. Use your energy, your thoughts and your magick wisely!
