Today I want to discuss discovering and opening yourself up to your path of becoming a witch. A witch’s message is one of self-love and earth-love. It is about the importance of aligning with the phases of the earth and moon. Pretty simple, really. I knew something was different about me in a magical sense while I was growing up.

I was always diving into metaphysical books whenever I went to the library. My parent’s religion was Catholic, but they often pulled me away from it, saying it was not something they would tolerate.

Are You in Touch with Your Magical Side?

When I had my place, I started diving into crystals and found excellent books on white witchcraft, Wicca, paganism, and everything you could think of.

I started on the path of Wicca and learned a lot from it. It was a great stepping stone, but I eventually broke free. I knew who I was and who I was becoming, being a woman and a witch, obtaining knowledge through everyday practices.

Wicca is a great stepping stone. It is something that can get you on the right path. Eventually, you might want to break free if you do not feel comfortable with it.

I felt satisfied with being a solitary witch, connected to the cycles of Mother Nature and everything that comes with it. Because I didn’t like following the guidelines of religion and the idea of hierarchy. I enjoy experiencing and reading knowledge from multiple faiths and don’t want to limit my thoughts or beliefs to one book or belief system.

I’m proud to say I’m just a human like the rest of you.

What do I practice?

I practice being genuine, honouring the cycles of everything in nature, the beauty of life and death, and how we can harness the energy from that and transmute it through our strength.

When we practice with all of our heart and all of our beliefs, we can become closer to the divine. We realize that we can harness this energy through the power of magic and the power of faith. We learn how powerful the mind and the heart are.

So, if you’re starting out on your path now, I want you never to doubt yourself and never stop having belief in yourself.

How to Find Those Books That Will Bring Magic to Your Life?

I don’t often give book recommendations because I think you find books you are intuitively drawn to. That is how you should find your path. Follow your heart and feel the books when the timing is right for you.

So the books I read were connected with my path and were presented along with my journey from the Cosmos. When you are walking through a bookstore, looking for the right book, something will draw you along to the right book.

Trust your divine guidance and intuition. Always keep yourself open to the possibilities of the Universe, and the books you need will find you then.

What Is the Difference Between White, Black, and Gray Magic?

Your intention—not just what you say or do—matters. Some magicians subscribe to the following definitions:

  • White magic is performed to connect with spiritual forces in the universe to gain wisdom, insight, or enlightenment.
  • Black magic is done to harm or manipulate someone else.
  • Everything else falls into the grey area. (Source)

When starting your path to witchery, avoid anything that brings you fear. The energies that we bring in from nature are all neutral. There is no white magic or black magic until we make it that.

So, don’t do it if you’re working from a place of fear and believe that God will punish you for casting a spell. Better start with less intimidating tasks to your belief system, like meditation or just taking nature walks and listening to

the elements.

You have to unlearn everything you learned as a child, make peace with it and understand there is nothing evil about witchcraft or becoming a witch.

It is all something beautiful, and it’s from nature. So if you firmly believe in the system of God, then you will know that everything in life was created by God or the Cosmos or Source or whatever you want to call it.

Whatever you believe, it’s all created. It’s all there for us to use, so how can it be evil in any way, shape or form? Once you make peace with that knowledge, you can grow exponentially. It will be such a beautiful path for you!

What Is the Meaning of Magic Circle for You?

Stay away from blogs or books that bring this negative connotation to witchcraft. Sometimes you might read something that takes you back. I remember when I first started, I read about casting circles.

People often ask about how to cast a circle. I feel that if you create your sacred space to be a space of pure love and energy and every day you bless your house, making it a positive space, you don’t necessarily need always to cast a circle.

In my opinion, casting the circle is perfect for helping you get into that mindset, especially if you’re going to cast spells. It’s beautiful to create a bubble of protection around yourself to keep your own or drive all the energy surrounding your body through your hands and into the intent of whatever you’re working with.

When I first read about casting circles, and I was diving into Wicca and witchcraft, I read somewhere in a blog that when you cast a circle, you will feel the presence of these entities around you. It was scary because then, in my mind, I envisioned shadow people sitting in the corners of the room checking out what I was doing. So I stopped doing the circle casting and focused on going outside.

At that time, I felt safer going outside than being locked away in a room casting spells. I would go out and read books. I like to chill with some tea and some candles and create this magical space from the outside.

What do I realize?

Then I realized that it was all in my head, and I was creating this negative connotation of casting circles. I realized I felt better outside with crystals and working with different resins, blessing tools, and consecrating things.

When I became drawn to that, I was continuously casting magic outside. I started making a little-sacred space in my tiny yard at the apartment. My fear actually pointed me in the right direction.

That is why again, I always say: follow your intuition and lead with your heart because, eventually, you’ll learn. You’ll learn from your mistakes, and you also will learn from the negative or the bad stuff. Do not forget that everything is a lesson.

To Be a Solitary Witch or to Join a Coven?

If you’re seeking a path of witchcraft and want to join a coven, be mindful of who you are participating with. You share a lot of deep energy with the people you will collaborate with. Knowing them before you start working magic with them is a good idea.

Who are they as a person? Do they consume much alcohol or drugs, have low energy daily, or are they highly vibrant? What energy are you trying to attract into your magical work and life? Because whatever you put out, you’re going to get that.

So, if you want to work black magic, you will receive that energy back. If you work a neutral path and do a kind of grey magic, you’ll receive that energy back. The same goes for white magic.

The magic is neutral. The people you will bring into your life are neutral until you get to know them. If you’re looking to join a coven, do some research. Do some hanging out and get to know them well. Make sure that your friends before you start doing things with them.

Because you don’t know what kind of energy they’re bringing, and you want to be mindful of that at all times. You don’t know what they might be doing outside of your magical spells, and you want to be insightful.

I stress this a lot because it is essential. It’s like when you’re in a relationship with someone. You want the people you’re in a relationship with to be terrific in heart. To be good in mind with pure energy and to match your energy levels. You need the same if you’re going to be practising magic with someone.
