“We should educate people that ‘Witch’ is not evil but ancient and positive. The first time I called myself a ‘Witch’ was the most magical moment of my life.”

What is Wicca?

The Wiccan religion is currently practiced worldwide by many people. It is more commonly known as White Witchcraft or Wicca (the old English term for witch).

Wicca is a religion which worships nature by performing Wicca spells, and it basically perceives all creation as very sacred. Within the Wiccan religion, worshippers pray to both a male and female deity who they believe created everything including the world.

Like most religions, there are many Wiccan holy days which are strictly observed by its followers.

Although many people today still perceive witchcraft, or Wicca spells, as a negative ritual performed by devil worshipers – this perception is nothing more than a negative stereotype, as the Wiccan religion is neither black nor white. It is a religion which respects Mother nature – and she is neither totally positive nor negative by herself.

Relatively, Wicca spells are commonly used by Wiccans who perform a series of rituals and prayers asking for divine assistance in any aspect of life. And it is required that all spells must compromise and adhere to the conduct code of the craft. This simply means that Wicca spells which can be used to harm other people are strictly banned from the religion. When using witchcraft, spells can be adapted to suit the personality of the Wiccan.

As I have outlined earlier, the majority of Wicca followers worship a God and a Goddess who they consider to be complimentary and equal beings. These two deities are commonly represented by the sun and the moon. And it is commonly believed within the Wiccan religion that the Goddess predated her companion since she is now the giver of all life and creation. It is also believed by many that both the God and the Goddess are capable of taking form in the Wiccan’s body during the ritual.

Another characteristic of the Wiccan religion is that the concept of the afterlife is rarely conceptualized and believed by its members.

Notably, the Wiccan’s religion most prominent text is the ‘Wiccan Rede’. This text states the following, “and it harm none, do what ye will”. Relatively, this means that so long as our actions do not harm others, we are free to pursue the Wiccan ritual. Additionally, there are the Law of Threes concept which many Wiccans adhere to. Basically this concept states that whatever positive or negative actions a person puts forward into this world will be returned in threefold.

Another text favoured in the witchcraft religion is the ‘Book of Shadows’. This text however is used by a coven or a single practitioner alone as it is a personalized religious text- for this text is too valuable and powerful to be portrayed in public.

The Wiccan religion and Wicca spells are similar to many religions as most religions including the Wiccan’s worship deities and also celebrate holy festivals. Nevertheless, Wicca spells are rising in popularity among many people in today’s society, as it is considered a reliable form of ritual in helping people receive positive and beneficial results in making their lives more worthwhile and comfortable.

    Hi, I am Cindy.. I really don’t know that much about the Wicca ways. I do know from little up, that I knew things. The last decade of my life has been a lot of sorrow. Family members passing away to losing my animals of old age and then myself passing away.. Upper resp. failure they called it from stress, that brought on my asthma.. I do remember passing and a couple of ppl working on me from the other side.. There were ppl standing side by side and two ppl working on my back where my lungs are.. The marks are still there.. Sometimes I feel like I am on a different plan then some.. Does any of this make sense to you? There was a time before my mothers passing that, I had butterfly’s come to me. Hundreds of them, on my familys mountain ground and the same thing happened to my mother? Then a few months later mom passed away.. I am trying to make sense of these things.. If you have any input it would be helpful.,. Thank You for listening….
