    From Wicca to Witchcraft

    Merry Meet, All! I began reading about Wicca around 8 or 9 years ago, and I was not young then (in my forties).  I had been living my whole adult life trying to rid myself of the old Christian habits passed on to me by my parents and grandparents, and I knew nothing about...

    witchcraft is not good

    nor evil, it's how it's used, a curse doesn't have to be something horrible and deadly, it's normally used to correct bad behavior.

    Dragon Spirit

    In Celtic or Pagan beliefs, I am what is known as a Dragon Spirit. I am a guardian for the flow of magic. I sense it being used, both correctly and incorrectly. I am also empathic, so I can usually sense the good or evil intent of the practice.

    I'm constantly studying witchcraft

    but I am not wiccan as I am learning to use black magick/chaos magick to start. It is successful and I'm excited about seeing results and would love anyone able to provide further guidance in this path to contact me. Serious, witches only.

    The Elegance of Witchcraft People

    so misunderstand the craft of the wise. They get witchcraft all mixed up with Wicca and New Age Mysticism. I won’t go into the definitions, you can use Google for those. I will say that a witch is a man or a woman. A male witch is not called a “warlock” the old word for...

    witchcraft is a state of being,

    your being is a part of nature as a whole, and all that nature is within us. the greatest illusion we face is our own egotistical nature. the ego tells us magic is false, while magic truly is a chaotic event, our ego says "thats impossible" and it then becomes impossible. I...

    The only things I know about witchcraft is

    that it is a peaceful practice & that everything you dish out will be returned to you tenfold. Other than that I dont know much, but I like the idea of what I do know, so if anyone would be willing to teach me the basics of witchcraft, I'd be thankful!
