Wicca, Witchcraft, & Magick the introduction
What is Wicca?
Wicca is a relatively a religion based on pagan practices and principles which have been passed down for centuries, originating in Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales. The word Wicca is originally an Old Times word, meaning "wise one".
Followers of the old path of witchcraft are in tune with the forces of nature, and are respected healers who educate others with their knowledge and understood how to work with the natural energies to affect everyday reality. Most Wiccans believe in the term "An it harm none, do what ye will".
Wiccans honor and respect the Earth and all its inhabitants, and we treat every plant, animal and human as an aspect of the Divine but some do not follow that path but turn to the darker arts such as "Black Magic". When wiccans perform witchcraft, they do so with the utmost respect, and with the intention to harm none.
So what are magic spells? A magic spell is a ritual which is performed in order to bring a desired change in our lives be it for good but some use it as a revenge tool such the name is called A "HEX". A spell can involve incantations, visualizations, herbs, candles, amulets, talismans, Magic spells are a way to communicate with the energies influence the spiritual energy that is all around us.
This spiritual energy is the physical world that we live in, and when we affect the spiritual, we will soon see changes in the physical. Not all Wiccans practice magic, and not all who practice magic are Wiccan and there are many magic traditions all over the globe. How do magic spells work? Magic works by concentrating and channelling your own spiritual energy, which then has the effect of moving larger energy currents in the area where you wish to see a change.
Anyone can perform magic it is just a matter of awakening your innate magical abilities and practicing them in order to increase the skills as you progress in becoming a witch. Focus your mind on an intention, sensing and working with energy, and communicating clearly with your Higher Self are the main skills that you need in order to practice successful witchcraft.
