Are you wondering whether you possess the gift to create real magic spells? To be able to determine this, you will want to first fully understand witchcraft and its rituals and how it affects the application of magic spells. People in general are misinformed about what witchcraft is. As a result, practitioners have endured everything from being cast aside to enduring beatings and of course, trial and execution.
So, what is witchcraft? How does it differ from religion? How long has it been around and does every culture use it? These are all questions that you, the novice Wiccan are likely curious about.
Despite its association with Christianity, it in fact pre-dates Judeo-Christian beliefs by hundreds of years. How it varies from religion is that rather than relying on faith to go through life and its ups and downs, Wiccans prefer to manage their own lives, their thoughts, feelings and actions by employing the powers of magic spells. Channeling the worlds between the known and unknown and life forces that exist between the sexes, Wiccans tap into this rather than dismiss it.
As it happens, most cultures embrace some form of witchcraft and utilize some method of magic spells to produce great things and have been for as long as people have existed. For the most part, the goals have been for the most part, benevolent purposes. Despite its long association with evil, largely "mass marketed" by the Catholic Church, Witches and Warlocks, in general, don’t believe in using real magic spells to inflict harm on others. This is not to say they are unable, but this is the exception, rather than the rule.
Additionally, long associated with witchcraft are images of Celtic people performing magic spells. However, in present day, the majority infuses traditions and rituals found in the teachings of the ancient Greeks, Babylonians, Egyptians, Indians, Chinese, Japanese, and West African as well Celtic.
One thing that all practitioners have in common is their belief of using rituals.
Whether you are preparing a backyard for planting trees or summoning the powers of real magic spells, respecting Mother Nature is paramount to your success. Working with her, rather than against her is the only way to achieve greatness.
There is a reason that farmers work according to the cycles of the moon. They determine a plant’s ability to grow or not. Using the same logic, the effectiveness of a magic spell can directly be attributable to where the moon is its phase. Interestingly enough, where a woman is in her cycle, or whether she’s pregnant or about to give birth, is just as real. Magic spells have a way of losing or gaining potency depending on the day of the month.
Another question you might be wondering is, why do Wiccans cast magic spells? Unlike those that rely on their faith that things will turn out the way they hope, Wiccans have long since learned that they can influence things along. Whether it’s something as benign as getting that "A" when you know the professor is a tough grader or pushing your boyfriend to pop the question. It's simply about manifestation. How badly do you want it and how good are you at making it happen?
Although many Wiccans still us herbs, tarot cards and chalices to affect the outcome of their magic spells, in reality, it’s unnecessary. Their just tools designed to help you with confidence.
Contrary to what you suppose, it is not appropriate to cast real magic spells on people for the intent of inflicting pain bring misfortune to someone. As a Wiccan, your gift must be used responsibly.
