Witch

I have been a spiritually and magickally minded person my whole life but never knew the word for it until I was six years old.  When I realized the word Witch applied to me it was a feeling of coming home.  I am somewhat solitary in my practice and while I do not consider myself Wiccan, I have utilized some information or recipes from Wiccan books and other similar sources. 

Indeed, gathering knowledge and magickal practices from several cultures can make a person into a rather well rounded Witch.   Truly to be a Witch, means you are a person who uses magick in your life.  It is so much a part of you that there is no separating one from the other.  Strictly speaking, you do not need to believe in any gods or deities of any sort to be a Witch.  You simply need to believe in yourself. 

To me, the practice of witchcraft is a very personal one.  No one does it exactly the same way and all of us are capable of living magickal lives.  I don’t go in for painting any particular version of the craft as more valid than another.  The one that speaks to your own heart is the one for you!
