A Witch In Training.......
Often I am asked this question because I have such a love for witches….not witchcraft but witches. I did my thesis paper on witches when I was in college and it opened up a whole new world for me…one that had been shadowed with many mis-conceptions and superstitions created by our modern day media…..Here is a simple definition:
Witches believe that the God and Goddess energy is contained in all things manifest and non-manifest. Witches see themselves as part of the all encompasing energy that surrounds us.
A witch believes in one universal energy that is polar and balanced. This energy is a mix of masculine and feminine energy. It can be referred to as the God and the Goddess, and through the marriage of these two energies, the perfect whole is created. Everyone is a part of this energy and it is through tuning into it that the knowledge of others can be obtained.
This knowledge can be then passed on for the good of all, creating greater insight into life and its many mysteries. For a witch this energy is the cornerstone of their work. Many spells and rituals have been formed to work within this energy. I hope with this short definition it will help give everyone an idea about what lies in the heart of someone who claims to be a modern day witch. Peace is a HUGE part of their practice and being one with our earth. Holistic medicine is also a common practice with witches. With everything in life balance is necessary and there is always bad with the good….I like to look for the good!
