How to Know If You Are a Witch

If you feel a little different from other people, if you don’t quite fit in, if your interests seem to veer wildly from those of people you are close to, if animals are drawn to you, if you feel at home in nature and comfortable in the dark . . . it’s quite possible you might be a potential witch.

What Is a Witch?

This is a difficult question because there are literally hundreds of different kinds of witches, and witchcraft traditions can vary wildly from place to place and person to person. However, the kind of witch I am talking about is pretty straightforward: a witch is a wise woman (or man) who uses energy to make things happen.

Be aware that people are rarely born into witchcraft, despite what some people claim. Witchcraft is a path you choose to follow. Even if you have all the characteristics described here, that doesn't mean you have to tread that path. It's all about choice.

Signs You Might Be a Witch

  • You dislike crowds. The energy of all those people seems to swirl and eddy around you. You might get a headache or feel grumpy or slightly ill if you get stuck in the middle of a large crowd.
  • You have always been able to rely on your intuition. Whenever you've needed to make a snap judgment, your intuition has kicked in to guide you. If you’ve been unsure about someone’s motives, your intuition got you right out of that situation. If you’ve anguished over a decision and, in the end, decided to go with your gut, you were following your intuition, and I expect it was spot-on.
  • Death and what happens after we die have always fascinated you. You often feel as though people who have passed haven’t gone anywhere at all. They are just behind a thin veil and have their quirks and characters just like the living. At the same time, you know we are all part of one whole.
  • You are a sponge for knowledge. You love to read and discover new things constantly. You love to be awed by the simplicity and complexities of the Universe.
  • You feel energy. Literally. Whether it is in your hands, flowing through you, or swirling around you, you know it is a real thing. Just because we can’t see it doesn’t mean it’s not there.
  • You can identify the energy of any place you visit. You can "read" the emotions that have been impressed on a building in the past. Sometimes, you just have to leave if it becomes too overwhelming. Other times, you feel you can exert a calming influence. Occasionally, it seems as though you have visited a place before, even though you are sure you haven’t.
  • You’ve always been attracted to the ‘Dark Arts,’ perhaps tarot, astrology, spell work, or healing. You believe there is so much about us—and the world—that we don’t understand, but the more you learn about witchcraft, the more you want to learn.
  • Nature feels natural to you. When you are in nature (walking in a garden, the woods, on the heath, or in a park), you feel like that’s where you belong. Nature restores your very being through connection with grass, trees, oceans, and rocks.
Witches feel particularly at ease in nature.

Physical Signs or Characteristics of a Witch

There's no way to simply look at a person to determine whether or not they are a witch. However, some of a witch's inner characteristics might cause visual clues.

  • You like to wear black. Seriously, witches can wear anything and the black clothes thing? Well, that’s just an affectation. These days, modern witches wear what they like. However, black and red stripy tights are a must... just kidding (says the woman with two pairs in her hosiery drawer).
  • You prefer silver to gold. Witches like silver because it is the color of the moon. Silver is soft and gleamy, whereas gold is brash and loud. Silver whispers; gold shouts.
  • You’re always collecting things. Unusual pebbles, shells, strange twisted sticks, bird feathers, bones, coins, scraps of fabric or paper, old stuff, things other people wouldn’t give a second glance to. And cats or other animals.
  • You are drawn to animals, and they are drawn to you. You have a natural rapport with creatures. Not only domestic animals but wild ones, too.
  • You accumulate objects that reveal your witchiness. The books on your bookshelf, contents of your cupboards, animals that surround you, and other random objects and curios you collect all hint at your inner truth.
Witches feel connected to the moon emotionally, physically, and spiritually.

More Clues You Could Be a Witch

  • You are observant. You take notice. You are always using all your senses. You hear, you see, smell, taste, and touch. You can’t pass by an interesting tree without touching it. You can’t ignore a herb garden without getting your hands right in there, with your nose following close behind. You hear birds and insects. You acknowledge their existence and are grateful for their presence on the planet.
  • You respect boundaries. You know instinctively when a person needs a hug or when they’d prefer not to be close. You know when to shut up and when to offer advice.
  • You are attracted to quirky, interesting, and unusual people. You are bored by many, but when introduced to someone who doesn't seem to conform, you make an instant connection.
  • You can keep a secret. Forever, if necessary.
  • Storms and lashing rain excite you. You’d love to get out there and be part of it. The visible force of nature gives you a rush.
  • The Moon seems to be important in a spiritual way, but you’re not quite sure why. Sometimes her beauty takes your breath away. You always notice the full moon, and your heart lifts when you see the crescent moon peeking through scudding clouds.
  • You feel connected to the elements: fire, water, earth, and air.
  • You’re reading this and you made a connection. You know that this is you. Even if all these things don’t apply, you just feel it. You are a witch.
Through grass, trees, oceans, and rocks, witches connect with nature.

After You’ve Determined You’re a Witch

Well, possibly nothing. If you don’t want to be a witch, you can carry on just as you are, with the added layer of knowledge that you are slightly different from those around you. Or you could choose to discover more about the path you’ve unexpectedly found yourself treading.

To develop your natural inclinations further and explore your own witchy potential, you could research the various traditions out there, including Native American, Celtic, Norse, and British Trads, Wicca, Voodoo, and Fairy and Solitary, to name just a few. You may want to find others like yourself and maybe embark on an initiation path, which is like a college degree for witches. There are many choices before you.

For now, though, I recommend you take it slowly. Read all you can, and find out where your interests lie and what makes your heart sing. Above all, enjoy the knowledge that you could be a witch. Do remember what I said earlier: Witchcraft is a path you choose to take. It's not compulsory.

Many people have been asking what's the best way to proceed. I've written another article to attempt to answer this. If you have any other questions that I can answer with an article, please let me know in the comments section.

Note: I get a lot of questions asking the same thing: What do I do next? The answer is right there in that section and the additional link above. Please read through all the answers and comments to see if I have already given the answer you're looking for.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I learn to practice witchcraft?

Witchcraft, the practice of magick to achieve an end that cannot simply be achieved through normal means, takes a lot of practice. To start learning how to use energy to make things happen, read 'How to Become a Witch: 30+ Resources to Set You on Your Witchcraft Path'.

If I'm a witch, how do I begin doing all the things witches do?

Along with studying, researching, reading extensively, and learning about spells, there are many practices you can incorporate into your daily rituals. Read '50 Ways to Be a Witch Every Day' and pick one or two rituals to add to your routine.

What kind of witch am I: green witch, white witch, hedge witch, word witch, shaman, etc.?

Part of every witch's education is learning about all the different types of witches there are. Read 'What Kind of Witch Are You? 60 Witchcraft Traditions' for more information.

How can I spot a modern-day witch?

You can't. She might not wear black; she won't carry a broom or wear a hat. She'll look just like you or me or anyone on the street. "She" might even be a man.

How do I know if I'm a wizard or a male witch?

We don't usually use the term "wizard," as it is a different thing altogether. Neither do we use "warlock" or "magician." A male witch is basically a male witch, though there aren't many, and the signs listed above would apply to them, too. They would probably also describe themselves as Wiccan or pagan.

Is being a witch the same thing as being Pagan or Wiccan?

"Pagan" is a broad term that describes anyone following an earth-based spiritual path. "Wiccan" is a specific religious path that falls under the umbrella term of witchcraft. So some pagans might be witches, but all Wiccans are witches. If you think you might be Pagan and want to learn more, read '7 Signs You Are a Pagan'.

No, you don't. Despite what some claim, people are rarely born into witchcraft. It is a path you choose to follow, not a hereditary thing.

Am I too young to be a witch?

To become a witch, you need to have life experience and maturity. I strongly discourage children from attempting to practice witchcraft. If you think you want to follow the path when you are ready, read 'Can a Young Teen Be a Witch?'

I have dreams and visions that come true—am I a witch?

No, it means you are experiencing premonitions while in a dream state. Witchcraft is a craft; it's something you choose to do. Psychic dreams are exactly that—a psychic gift. More information here: 'I See Things in Dreams that Come True'

Questions & Answers

Question: As a little girl, I felt like I had power inside of me and I was always interested in witchcraft and more. Do you know about that power and can you help me get it out so I can use it?

Answer: What you feel is a strong connection to universal energy. And, yes, you can learn to tap into it at will and control it for your purposes. Read these articles for more information:

Question: My love spell did not work. Did I do something wrong?

Answer: Love spells are tricky. It's always best to keep them general. If you are trying to get a certain person to fall in love with you, then that is manipulation. Attempting to change or direct another person's actions may not be in their best interests. It may also set off a chain of events that you didn't anticipate.

However, if you are trying to attract love, that's okay because the spell is focused on you. I recommend you use the second method and allow the universe to work out the 'who'.

Remember that manipulation magick can come back to haunt you forever. Always make it clear that you want the result to be in everyone's best interests.

'And it harm none'.

Question: I have been casting the same spells for several months. I don't know if it is working. What could I do to make it work? Does it take a while?

Answer: Sounds like you have been trying too hard and are too hung up on the outcome.

Question: Most of these characteristics fit me, but what about seeing ghosts or spirits, or interpreting if they’re good or evil? What kind of witch would I be then?

Answer: Someone who sees spirits is generally considered to have psychic abilities. You can choose whether to be a witch and use those skills in your witchcraft work. Or you could ignore witchcraft and focus on being a psychic.

Question: I've always identified myself as a Pagan & Empath, after my Dad died I feel power surges. What could this be?

Answer: So sorry to hear your Dad has passed. It's possible that he is 'hanging out' with you. I think you'll find that the sensations will fade as time goes on. Try talking to him, or conversing with him in a journal.

Question: I'm 54, am I too old to begin trying to learn about being a witch?

Answer: Absolutely not. Mature people make the best witches. You have plenty of life experience and common sense.

Question: My mom is about to have a baby and I want to protect it so nothing will happen. What do I do?

Answer: You sound too young to be casting spells, so don't. What I recommend you do is to silently call upon the Goddess (you can think of her as Mother Earth, if that helps) to take care of your mom and your new brother/sister.

Question: I'm an empath and sensitive as well. I've always been extremely drawn to witchcraft and slowly learning. Is the combination of the three a wise decision?

Answer: Well by definition an empath is sensitive to all sensory stimulation and witches are encouraged to pay close attention to their senses, their intuition and everything that goes with that, so I'd say you have a head start. There's no problem as long as you are able to manage it.

Question: I once heard voices in my head and I started to get scared but then I figured out if I make wishes they'd come true. Do you think I could meet some other witches in the world and they can teach me?

Answer: Voices in your head aren't usually anything to do with witchcraft. I suggest you spend some time researching and studying before attempting to contact witches. We like people to demonstrate that they are serious.

Question: I have a good friend who is a Wiccan. Ever since I found out, it has interested me but I don't show many of the signs that she does of being a witch. I dabbled very briefly with her and believe I felt some kind of connection to it but don't seem to be able to see what she does or have the senses that she does. Is it still possible I am a witch, or that I could be a witch if I wanted to?

Answer: Firstly, Wicca is a very specific branch of witchcraft. It is a religious path and many of the practices are common to all branches of Wicca. Some find it too restrictive or that they have difficulty relating to the various deities. You might find it more comfortable if you just start with some gentle practices on your own.

Question: Would you please explain how manipulating energy works?

Answer: Here are some articles that will help you understand:

Question: I'm in my early teen years and witchcraft truly fascinates me. I tried the test and got 77%. But I'm not sure how to start on my new journey. Do I start by reading books about it?

Answer: Being so young, it's best if you start by embarking on a year or so of study. I have some other articles to help you get going.

Question: Does it mean anything if I feel more powerful, more awake, when I am alone outside on the dark?

Answer: It means you feel more powerful and more awake in the dark. Don't go wandering far, though.

Question: Does a witch have to follow a deity or can they just perform spells or learn a craft like herbalism, working with crystals and such?

Answer: No, witchcraft by itself is not a religion. You can choose to make it so if you wish but it is not necessary. Wicca is religious and does involve working with deities, but most non-Wiccan witches are secular, i.e. non-religious.

Question: Can I be a witch if I don't feel energy and don't feel okay in the woods alone at night?

Answer: You shouldn't be out alone at night in the woods anyway. I would never recommend that. You can learn to feel energy simply by practicing. If you are very young, you should wait until you are older.

Question: Once I dreamt about my sister being pregnant, and it came true. Does that make me a witch?

Answer: No, of course not. One dream, which may or may not have been based on conversations you may have had or heard, does not mean anything. Witches practice witchcraft. Predictive dreams are something completely different.

Question: I think I'm a witch but I don't know what type I am. What should I do?

Answer: You might find out what kind of witch you are by visiting this page. It details sixty different types of witchcraft. And don't forget, you might well be a mix, in which case you'd be an 'eclectic' witch.

https://exemplore.com/wicca-witchcraft/What-Kind-o...

Question: Are there any particular books on witchcraft that you would recommend to beginners?

Answer: I would suggest anything by Lisa Chamberlain, although she writes mostly about Wicca. There are lots of academic history of witchcraft books available, and later, you should read one or two of those.

Question: I have a strong faith in God though I cannot deny the fact that the moon has had a pull on me since I was a child. Everything you wrote here is me. I guess I am just confused about what to do next? If I am a witch, how can I use it to help others?

Answer: Being a witch does not mean giving up your faith. If you think of a witch as a wise woman or man, then you get a different sense of what it means. Why don't you study some healing modality, such as Reiki or touch healing? Learn how to bring energy into your body and then how to direct it into a person who needs it. Everyone is capable of doing it.

Question: My family has never been open to witchcraft. I want to travel this journey and learn all that I can. My family comes from a line of mediums. What do you suggest I look into to find more on traditions and rituals and what style of witch I am?

Answer: I have just the article for you. It describes sixty types and traditions of witchcraft so you may find that you resonate with one or two of them. I've also got a whole bunch of beginner-type articles.

https://exemplore.com/wicca-witchcraft/How-to-be-a...

Question: I have decided to look further into witchcraft and the study of it and would like to cast a protection spell first, would you have any suggestions?

Answer: My advice is not to cast any spells until you are confident enough to know what you are doing. However, that doesn't mean you cannot invoke some psychic protection. Have a look at this article for suggestions: https://exemplore.com/wicca-witchcraft/Psychic-Pro...

Question: As a little girl I was always drawn to the moon but never knew why. I was also very creative and enthusiastic at a young age. When I was ten years old I suddenly started go through these on and off phases of crying for no reason. It was almost like a depression because I would have suicidal thoughts but wasn't suicidal. It stopped a year later, almost as if it was something I somehow learned to control. Could this have been depression or the manifestation of some power?

Answer: It sounds like depression or PTSD to me - something you came to terms with and made a decision that you were not going to allow yourself to think or feel that way any more. It was a psychological manifestation and not anything to do with witchcraft. Witchcraft is something you have to learn and practice.

Question: Is there any significance if I awoke last night while the moonlight bathed my skin, for some unknown reason, I raised my hands and repeated “incantata” and had this tingling feeling? Further, I did answer yes to all question determining if one is a witch. Thank you.

Answer: A cantata is a piece of classical music written for vocalists. An incantation is a chant, often used when casting spells -- maybe that's what your mind was reaching for?

Question: I have always had a very strong intuition, to the point that it scared me when I was young. I have learned to trust my intuition and I have started using oracle cards but I am really struggling to connect with my spiritual side. Do you have any pointers for me? I’m very new to this and I’m definitely still trying to figure out my path.

Answer: You might try keeping a journal. By recording your intuitive experiences, revisiting the entries and updating them, you will strengthen your abilities.

Question: What is the shadow man with fire red eyes?

Answer: Keep listening to The Black Tapes podcast and you'll find out.

Question: A couple of times I made things up, and they ended up being real. Is that related to witchcraft?

Answer: No. You may be tapping into the 'collective unconscious' via your intuition. Probably means you have psychic skills. It's called 'precognition' and is the ability to predict the future.

Another school of thought is that you are experiencing Law of Attraction. Your thoughts and words hold a certain vibration and if they are in alignment with the event you are 'making up' then it will come true. That's known as 'manifestation.'

Question: I've always been interested in life and death. I'm also the girl who wears black a lot, but I want to be a good witch. Does this mean I'm a witch or not?

Answer: You're not a witch until you practice witchcraft. Being a witch means being one of the wise. It takes hard work and a deep knowledge of self, and the human psyche in general. You could design a course of study for yourself, or maybe join a training group if you would prefer the interaction with others.

Question: Does seeing ghosts have to do anything with witches?

Answer: No, nothing. Seeing ghosts or spirits means that the person is clairvoyant. They could choose to be a witch, or not. Their gift would still be present.

Question: I read an article that said: visualization equals imagination plus willpower. Could you explain how this works? Have you written articles on this that would help me with my spells and magic?

Answer: Hmm... for me visualization is only imagination. You can forget about willpower. Probably, the author meant 'intention.' So before working any kind of spell, you need to set your intention or your 'will' (not willpower, which is self-control). All it means is being ultra clear on what outcome you desire. Also, before you start, you have to be certain that this outcome can happen. You have to know it with every cell in your body.

Once you have that nailed, then you go on to work the spell and include the visualization as you chant or whatever you have decided to do.

Question: Ever since I was young something wasn't right. I never fit in. I see things before they happen, sometimes years down the road. Animals are drawn to me. I can tell if a person is good or bad when I first meet them. In rare cases I have to touch them first. Same with houses, if I get a good feeling I go in; if I get a bad feeling I leave. How do I use this for good without magic?

Answer: You are claircognizant. Nothing to do with witchcraft unless you choose that path. You don't have to combine your gifts with magic.

More information on claircognizance here: https://exemplore.com/paranormal/Claircognizant-Tr...

Question: I'm eleven-years-old. Am I too young to practice witchcraft?

Answer: Yes, you are too young. Witchcraft is something you are free to read about, but you can't decide until you are older if it is something you should pursue.

If you are serious about it, then you should learn all you can about nature, the seasons and the moon cycles. Study science, especially about planet Earth. Learn the names of the trees and wild plants. Find out about the habitats of animals where you live.

You need a good foundation in these things to become a true witch. Read all you can. When you are seventeen, you can decide if you are a true witch. Good luck.

Question: When I think about things in the moment and say them to myself, they often happen. I’ll say watch me burn myself and I do despite being careful. One day I watched a lady putting her hair in a ponytail and I said I’m sure her hair tie is going to pop, and sure enough it did. Could this be a sign?

Answer: It's certainly a sign that Law of Attraction is working for you. My suggestion is that you keep practicing with small things and keep a journal of the results. If you want to be a witch you have to learn how to do witchcraft as well.

Question: When I was just a kid, there was this boy I'm whom I could not stand. One day, I picked a flower from a bush in my neighborhood, held it in my hand and said I wish I wish Jacob would move away to a place far, far away. The next day on the school bus, he told me he and his family was moving. Why was I able to do that at such a young age and how?

Answer: The family would have already made the arrangements to move before you make your wish, so perhaps you simply tapped into that sequence of events? However, time doesn't matter so much, and maybe you were able to manipulate energy in exactly the right way without even thinking about it.

Question: Where is the best place to get my altar set up supplies? I have been looking for candles and haven't spotted any. I am tempted to make my own.

Answer: I find what I need in the woods and on the beach. My candles are ordinary tea-lights. After all these years, I learned that none of the expensive trappings are necessary.

https://exemplore.com/wicca-witchcraft/Simple-Witc...

Question: How long does a spell take to work? Will it take longer for a new witch than one who has been doing it for awhile? What could I do?

Answer: Spells vary hugely in when the desired outcome occurs. A lot depends how well, and how much energy you put into it. If you merely follow instructions, it's unlikely to work.

Question: What resources can help me learn more about Wicca?

Answer: Read everything you can. Understand the basics of the Wheel of the Year, the Sabbats, etc. There are some great books available.

There used to be lots of excellent Wiccan study websites. They're harder to find these days, but there are still some good ones out there if you are prepared to search beyond the first page of Google results.

Nicole Canfield has a fabulous collection of articles right here on Exemplore: https://hubpages.com/@kittythedreamer.

Question: How would I know if I’m really a witch if only half of this happened to me? I want to know why I have dreams that predict the future, and why I have dreams about weird symbols?

Answer: You know if you feel it. 'Witch' is just a label after all. What you have (like most people) are certain gifts such as precognition. And it's up to you whether you want to develop them or suppress them. I can't tell you why you get the dreams you do; perhaps you could do some dream research? Meditation would probably help you get some answers.

Question: Is blurring vision on demand a witch thing?

Answer: No. It's something you've practiced.

Question: I know I'm a witch. But I possess another attribute. I can move things when I'm angry or upset. Is this part of witchery? I have never studied it before.

Answer: No, it's telekinesis, sometimes called psychokinesis. Psychic gifts are what they are and not connected with witchcraft. People with such gifts can be witches, of course, but not all witches are psychic. Witchcraft is something you choose to do.

Question: If I am a witch what am I meant to do now?

Answer: You can do anything you like. You will only become a witch if you study and practice witchcraft. So if that's your choice, do some exploring... you could start here: https://hubpages.com/wicca-witchcraft/What-Type-of...

Question: I get weird feelings before something bad happens. I can't sleep and I can always tell when something is not right about someone. I've never understood why. What type of witchcraft could this be?

Answer: It's precognition. Being able to sense the future. Also feeling the energy of another person is called empathy.

These things are psychic abilities and come in many 'flavors', such as clairvoyance (clear seeing), claircognizance (clear knowing), clairaudience (clear hearing). They are not limited to witches and not all witches have these skills in a developed form.

Question: My mother had a very strong sixth sense. Sometimes I talk to my pet cat and also have done the same with my other cats. I love nature and at time can sense things about people. Even though I go to church I often refer to myself as spiritualist instead of as Christian. Often I find myself reading about Wicca and have collected crystals for healing and positive energy. My favourite colour is light purple. And at times I can see auras around people. Would that make me a witch or Wiccan?

Answer: I'm afraid none of those things make you a witch. However, it sounds as if you have a strong intuition and latent psychic abilities so you could become a witch if you chose to do so. Wicca is a religious branch of witchcraft, and has numerous off-shoots of its own. Again, you would have to choose to follow that path.

Question: Does having a connection with nature make me a Green Witch?

Answer: If you don't practice witchcraft, you are not a witch. Everyone on the planet is connected to nature... it couldn't be otherwise. However, witches have a special connection because they recognize the importance of cycles in life, from birth to death, growth, and decay. Everything in nature is cyclical.

Question: Because I am native to my country, I’ve always had that spiritual connection to the land. I have a connection to those in my family who have passed away. My Grandmother is into crystals and things that involve witchcraft. Would these things relate to the possibility I was born a natural witch?

Answer: The best person to ask would be your grandmother. She probably has a lot of knowledge and wisdom she can pass on to you. Don't forget, witchcraft is a path you choose. Your gifts will help you, but you won't be a witch unless you learn and practice witchcraft.

Question: How am I different than everyone around me when 98% of the people on here believe they are or could be a witch?

Answer: Because not everyone on the planet is looking for this information, just the ones, like you, who feel a little different. Remember that witchcraft is a choice, a path. It's not necessarily something you are born with.

One person may read this material and resonate with it and choose to follow a witchcraft tradition. Another may feel that it all applies to them, but decide that witchcraft is not a valid choice.

Also be aware that there are a lot of young people commenting and asking questions who have gotten their idea of witchcraft from TV and the movies. It's not like that at all.

Question: Even though I'm not a witch, can I cast spells?

Answer: Anyone can work spells. But you must be aware of any negative ramifications. Avoid spells that are intended to manipulate other people's feelings and behavior.

I have written a short guide to basic spellcasting here: https://hubpages.com/wicca-witchcraft/How-To-Begin...

Question: At what age can I become a witch?

Answer: It depends on the person's level of maturity. Messing around with magick (energy) can cause problems in later life so it's really important that the person learns as much as possible before he or she starts to practice witchcraft.

Question: How do you know if someone put a spell on you?

Answer: You can't tell most of the time. However, if you are having a run of bad luck, then you can do a general protection spell, building in a 'return to sender' clause to send back any negative energy. You don't have to know where it came from.

https://hubpages.com/wicca-witchcraft/How-To-Begin...

Question: Is witchcraft a taboo thing? The Bible states that it is a practice frowned on by God. I want to know if you believe this, or if you have something to say to this? I want to be a witch to be able to defend my family against negative energies, but I'm afraid to do so because living in a Christian household. I was raised with different beliefs. Should I practice witchcraft?

Answer: I can't tell you what you should or shouldn't do. It has to be a personal choice. It seems that only mainstream religions have a policy of issuing orders and diktats. Witchcraft is much more free and easy about things. Do it if it pleases you and harms none.

You can read more of what I think about this issue:

Go to the section that is headed, "So Why Does the Bible Say, “Thou Shalt Not Suffer a Witch to Live”? https://hubpages.com/wicca-witchcraft/Witch-and-Wi...

https://hubpages.com/wicca-witchcraft/Is-There-Suc...

Question: Are there negative consequences or karma if a natural witch chooses to go down that path?

Answer: As long as you are sensible, grounded, kind in heart, maintain a positive vibe, and work the odd protection spell, you'll be fine. There's nothing out there waiting to leap upon you. You will only experience bad karma if you do bad things. Look up the Law of Threefold Return.

Hi Selkhis, that's the way it is :D Once you've felt the pull, it's hard to ignore it.

Lots more info here: https://exemplore.com/wicca-witchcraft/How-to-be-a...

Selkhis Lilth on August 25, 2020:

Ty for your article. I've always known i was a witch/ vudu priestess at heart. But being raised in a Haitian Pentecostal home, that was a no no. But i would read, and read about the dark arts, magik etc. Until a "pull" occured and i knew i was delving too much, i was not mentally strong and let it go. But i always feel the "tug" the attraction of it. Even casted simple spells. I will continue to read.

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on August 05, 2020:

Hi Maya,

You simply have to research and study all the things you feel drawn to . I can't tell you how to handle your energy, apart from direct it into those things that make your heart sing :)

Maya on August 05, 2020:

Hi. After reading the article,I feel I'm a witch, I knew there was something about but wasn't clear..I can tap into nature's energy and sometimes can control the breeze..I know it's me doing it..also I'm into tarot, palmistry and my dreams are quite insightful and my hunches 90%right.. pls advise me on how to handle my energy

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on July 03, 2020:

Hi Lindsey,

Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I'm not quite sure what question you want answered but I have a whole lot of resources that might interest you. Feel free to ask any questions on any of the individual topics.

https://exemplore.com/wicca-witchcraft/How-to-be-a...

Lindsey on July 03, 2020:

Oh my, there are a lot of questions there and many things I’ll need to read. I hope this isn’t something you’ve answered already and that I could have read, but here goes... I see witchcraft itself is a choice. I’ve realized that I may have more than one spirit guide. My God usually communicates through others. I’ll ask Him and find my answer through many things, but mostly people. I seem to have another that communicates through physical things like feathers or images of them, sometimes coins. Even a character on an unrelated game as I’d been pondering had said something that stuck out “Use your ears” (he was in a cave with his son and it went dark). A coincidence other times, but I felt that one. Many things are said between I have some gifts unrelated (some clairs) and it’s helpful, that I have a choice in this to maybe I don’t have a choice. It’s like I’m being told that even if it’s something I want, I won’t get away from it either way. I’m just not understanding what it all means, like I’m being lead (or even pushed) somewhere and I don’t know where it is or why. Like, do I even have the time to figure anything out. It’s a bit of a relief to know that I’m not just weird. I’ve kind of always known even without identifying the term and I’ve always been drawn directly to this in some sense or another. It just feels like now I’m being contacted by so many things or just in so many ways and they just won’t let up. I sense it would make me happy to practice, but it’s like there’s something else there. Any references are much appreciated! By the way, I got a kick out of the silver to gold bit. That’s been my reasoning since I could remember. Silver is simply present vs gold screams a “hello”

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on June 29, 2020:

Hi Vicki, there are many Christian witches around :)

I have two articles to suggest:

https://exemplore.com/wicca-witchcraft/How-to-be-a...

https://exemplore.com/wicca-witchcraft/Psychic-Pro...

Good luck.

Vicki Carroll from Birmingham, AL on June 29, 2020:

According to your questionnaire, I am a witch. But I'm not sure how that fits in with the fact that I am also a believer in God. If I am a witch, I am definitely a good witch. Unfortunately, my only experience with witches is a coworker who claims to have cast a spell on me. Two weeks later I had emergency back surgery. I'd like to see more about good witches versus bad witches and how to avoid the spell of a bad witch.

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on June 08, 2020:

What a lovely comment, Natalia. Glad you have rediscovered your path.

Natalia on June 08, 2020:

Well, for sure my grandma used to tell me I'm a witch, and asked me Simple questions and clues like this article. Even as a kid (I'm 21 now)

She would show me how to project my energy and stuff, how to relieve pain with my palms, (she had the thing with knees as well, so I learned by practice), she taught me about dreams and meaning and how to tell a vision from a "normal" dream.

Lots and lots other stuff I enjoed thinking it was just a way to keep me occupied and calm.

And now I read this for fun, remembered I actually am a witch with all traits written above. :')

Thanks for reminding me who I am and maybe I consider practising again, now that I know it' s not just my grandma's vast imagination.

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on May 12, 2020:

Yes it's okay to be Catholic and be a witch at the same time. Many people equate Mary with the goddess. Witchcraft doesn't have to be religious though.

Witchcraft is just one way of accessing the laws of the universe and more specifically, manipulating energy. It's in all of us, but only some feel able to use it. Organised religion was one way of preventing the masses from accessing the magic.

Ann on May 12, 2020:

Is it okay to be Catholic and practice witchcraft?

Where does it come from...God or the Devil or Nature?

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on April 30, 2020:

Hi Brittany, it can be hard to deal with a reaction like this. My own was more of a "At last I found where I'm supposed to be and who I really am." It was a relief.

Anyway, I have a ton of articles here that you can browse through. Take your time, there's no rush. Breathe, absorb and see how it goes.

I have always feel different since I was young. And weird things always happen in my life like consequences. I have some sense about place, ppl, moon. Now I’m about to turn to 23 many things happen around me like someone try to tell me something but I don’t know what. Yesterday 29 April 2020 finally something responded me and it’s the thunder they answer my questions with the light of thunder and sound of the storm. And suddenly something I thought I was going crazy. And it lead me to your article. I didn’t pay much attention on it at first because I wasn’t sure this is real until today 30 April 2020 there is big storm and rain and all thunder things and I can feels them. I start to sit on my knees and all energy from the thunder lightning, I don’t know what is goin on. my body start to getting hot and my hand are shaking, suddenly I’m cried for no reason. I don’t know this thing is real or not but if your article was right about it I completely lost and really don’t know where can I find the answer of what happen to me. I can’t help myself to created this account with curious feeling. just hope that I will get some answer and what I should do next.

Sheetal gurung on April 14, 2020:

As we know we are temporarily in these world. Nothing is permanent here. It makes me worries. Why I'm here in earth for what reason? I dreamed about afterlife and i got panicked. I feel like i have to do it before i die but what's the thing that makes me worried about dying. I'm very much intrested in witchcrafts. I want to learn. I'm very much different. I love animals more than humans. Humans are very cruel to animals and nature. I'm very sensitive. I'm not a witch but i want to learn witchcraft. I believe in supernatural powers. I'm always been a curious one. I'm much more fascinating in witch crafts. I feel kind of energy through moon. I like to see full moon. It makes me connected. May be its because i was born in fullmoon. Its weird. Why I'm feeling different from others. Always curious about supernatural powers. That's y i want to learn.

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on April 01, 2020:

I can't answer that, Marilyn. You may be the first in your family, or it could go back generations. You'll have to do a little detective work :)

Marilyn on April 01, 2020:

I've always known I was a different from the rest of the crowd.nothing made sense. Always been the curious one. And it's when I got my early mid teens is when I was for some odd reason was interested in the dark arts. having putter body experiences, intuition, and deja Vu. Extremely odd unexplainable dreams. Was petrified at first cause I didn't understand what was happening to me. Overtime I've learned to except it and welcomed it. Now I know who and what I am. Always have been. My question is to you: how far does this go in my ancestry?

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on March 23, 2020:

Hi Marta, it doesn't mean anything in itself, other than you love nature. If you want it to mean that you are a witch, then you have to do witchcraft :)

Marta on March 22, 2020:

Ever since I was 5 I have this strange connection to nature I never want to leave outside I feel drawn to the stars and moon and I have this strange connection with animals I was wondering what it meant

Megan, I've given you a website that will help you find others with your gifts.

If you are really worried, then you should rule out possible medical conditions, so go get checked out.

Megan Dennis from chattanooga, Tn on February 22, 2020:

Im the same megan that already told you about my family, past, and my invisible full sentences that i see everywhere. Please help me.

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on February 22, 2020:

Megan, I've just answered your question in the Q&A section.

Megan on February 22, 2020:

I'm lost. No explanation. Since I remember I have seen they dead, spoke, heard, and feel; but lately things have been different. I'm not hungry, I cannot sleep. When I was 12, I flipped a switch and tried to stop being open. Now, that I'm almost 21, I've unconsciously flipped it on. My cousin can project herself to have unwanted guest out of her house, but that's it. The new issue with me, I'm more open than I ever have been, I can see full sentences on my body and everyone's body. It doesn't stop there, walls, cars, actors on tv, and I don't know what it means. No one does.

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on February 12, 2020:

Hi Hannah,

Your mom is right to stop you doing witchcraft. You are too young to manipulate energy (cast spells). However, it's brilliant that you feel this way... all you need is patience. Wait until you are old enough, but don't stop learning or looking at the moon :)

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on February 11, 2020:

Hi Perkashi, start with anything by Lisa Chamberlain. Her books are straightforward and geared towards beginners.

Perkashi on February 11, 2020:

If you are under 18, Damini, you are unlikely to find someone who is willing to mentor you. You can try social media for groups in your area, or for those who run online training.

Damini on February 08, 2020:

Hi, I'm damini. I read up the article about different types of witches and I don't really know what kind I am. How do I also find myself a mentor who I can fully trust and will guide me?

Hi Katherine, it's just a very common type of birthmark. It doesn't have anything to do with witchcraft :)

katherine nauta on February 07, 2020:

I feel very much as you describe when I was 2 I developed a birthmark mole like but called a strawberry type birthmark on my nose just to the left of center and the doc said it would go away and it did by the time I was 5 it was gone had to wonder if there was any information on markings from the past

Hi Angela,

Sorry, I am no dream expert. You'd need to visit a page or site which focuses on dream interpretation.

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on January 30, 2020:

Sorry to disappoint, but this is an article for people who may be looking for such information. It's not supposed to be about the meaning of symbols and colours. If you want to go deeper, try Quareia's free course.

Also, this article might be of interest: https://exemplore.com/wicca-witchcraft/Witchcraft-...

Nova on January 30, 2020:

This article doesn't satisfy me . The is something beyond the surface . I think the average modern person who claims they are witches don't understand it and are more of fans than a true magician. Ether that of the are on entry level magic . I connected with this but again I'm not satisfied. I want to know the truth. The meaning of symbols and colors and how this frequency get manipulated. Science and magic are one in the same but today it has been split . I know I got intense magical powers but again I can't stress this enough this article is baby stuff. What is the super natural truth . Where do I find it ?

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on January 28, 2020:

Raunak, you have to have a look on Amazon. Try anything by Lisa Chamberlain, especially if you are interested in Wicca.

Oh, I've had a half-written article sitting on my laptop for about four weeks now. Time just gets away from me. x

Verlie Burroughs from Canada on December 31, 2019:

Oh! That was fast. Great. Better get a move on here. I haven't figured out the artwork yet. Got bogged down for hours looking at my own photos, and that was a bit of a waste of time. Now it's so late 1:30 a.m. and I have to work tomorrow, so it looks like it could be a couple of days before I get it on the page, but I'm happy that sounds good to you. Any tips for finding 'witchy' artwork anywhere?

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on December 31, 2019:

Hi Verlie, that's so lovely! And I'd be so pleased to have the link, of course. Usually it's fine on HubPages, but if they snip it, it doesn't matter.

Please come back and give me the actual link to your poem - can't wait to read it. xxx

Verlie Burroughs from Canada on December 30, 2019:

Hi Bev, I wrote a poem awhile back inspired by your witch writes, a very light-hearted poem about being a hedge witch (or imagining being a hedge witch) and I'm now wanting to post it on Hub Pages as part of a small collection of poems (only one of them about a witch) and I'm wondering if a link to this page would be appropriate? Or maybe if you see the poem first, after it's published you could let me know if a link would be okay (just wanting to give you credit for the inspiration). Happy New Year Bev!

So I’ve always felt very at home in nature and water it’s really calming and before a big storm hits and after I’ll feel calm and like the world is really at peace um I also have this sort a thing you’d call like a sixth sense I guess I can feel others emotions and sometimes my emotions change to fit theirs and I also have this little thing that when someone I no gets hurt before I even no that they’re hurt a part of me will hurt or I’ll get hurt just like them um my best friend we used to call each other soultwins she had this back problem and her whole right side of her back was swelling up well the next day I ask her if her back is hurting because I can’t even hardly stand up so I feel others pain idk what you’d call that but I’d like to no what you think I am spiritually and if I am a witch ??

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on December 10, 2019:

Hi Luna, you can be a witch if you choose to be one. What you describe are mostly psychic experiences. You can find a practicing group by looking on social media to see if there's one where you live. Just be careful, okay? Not everyone out there is who they purport to be.

Good luck on your magical journey.

Luna Love0333 on December 09, 2019:

I have always since a small child have had dreams where I’m like a fly on the wall. At the location my dream is taking place The dreams repeat 3 time. Each night changing slightly. I wake at the same time. I see the dream come true the next day when I wake the 3 dream had become reality. I also just know things b. I can’t explain why, I just do. I believe I’m a witch. I have not wanted to tell this to anyone. A couple of my children now know because they experience the same thing. I want to be in a coven (how to find one) and learn more and practice to sharpen my skills. Any thoughts or am I just a wishful thinker that I’m a witch?i I have read your comments to others and 1 stood out. I have SAVED the links you posted the answer. I welcome more. Thank you in advance!

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on November 18, 2019:

Hi Izriana,

No, lucid dreaming and astral projection are not witchcraft by themselves. Although they can form part of someone's witchcraft practice.

The other things you describe sound as though you are an eclectic witch - I have no advice for you other than keep doing the things that make you happy :)

Hi Jade, this article might be of interest:

Jade on November 14, 2019:

So I’ve always felt more than a sixth sense within my bones, I never really fit in at all with anyone not even with the queers as lovely as it sounds life has a way of among decisions for me I feel like somethings is guiding me making my own decisions for me, I’ve always been alone and had no problem with it, I predict things through déjà vu whether I like it or not. There been multiple accidents where I unharmed unnaturally, two weeks ago I was in a car accident where my friends car rolled, fell off a cliff entering Sierra highway she was diving I came out without not even one scratch but she was severely bruised, Iv had dreams where as weird as it sounds that Satan, morning star is in my dreams and I’m usually talking good things about him in my dream kinda odd to me doesn’t frighten me but In my dreams he’s good to me he’s nice to me. And I’m always awake at midnight I always fall asleep at 5:00am all the time it’s annoying it’s more than insomnia to me. I don’t know but I feel something happening in my life. I can also hear spirits talking to me sometimes I can’t see them I can only hear them a glimpse of their voice I didn’t know what necromancy meant until I had the voice of an elder women whisper into my ear at 2:00am as I am falling asleep.

Blessed be

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on November 06, 2019:

Hi Izriana, it sounds to me as if you have created a wonderful spiritual practice. You have combined your psychic gifts with many things that witches do. You don't need any advice, just keep doing what you are doing and enjoy the journey. And... you don't need any labels in order to validate what you do :)

Izriana marshea on November 06, 2019:

Is dream walking and astral projection witchcraft, if so what kind? I have always been able to change my dreams and watch them from an out of body experience. I have read your article on the types of witches and I can manifest things into existence. I also pray to the Arch Angels as well as the universe, God, gods, goddesses, and the earth and when I do this I usually get what I ask for. The kitchen calms me and I'm a homebody, but I also like being in nature and look at all creatures as equals. I use crystals for protection and meditation, I believe in spirit guides, I have Oracle cards and rune stones, and tarot came natural to me at the age of 13 due to me being an empathy and a Clair. I have attempted making moon water but I don't think it worked, and I want to get into candles and herbs but my heart really isn't in it. Although I just learned about jar magick and it seems pretty cool. Do you have any advice for me or know what path I'm on or if I'm even a witch at all or just into divinations I'm really not sure if manifestation and meditation are considered witchcraft.

Hi Martha, What you describe is the psychic gift of empathy. You are picking up on the energy of others and perhaps the thoughts of one particular person that you have a strong psychic connection with.

You are a witch if you also practice witchcraft. This article explains the difference: https://exemplore.com/wicca-witchcraft/I-Have-Psyc...

Martha on October 15, 2019:

I have many dreams and they come true. Sometimes it takes up to a year for it to happen. I can read people and feel thier emotions when im around them. Im alao some how connected to a man. I dont know why. Ive tried so hard to let him go but I can feel him even when he is thinking about me. My son even dreameant of me meeting my husband I have now. Ive always wondered if I was a witch. I loved being outside as a child! I felt so connected. Sometimes I can even hear peolpe talikng about me. Strange right. What do you make of this?

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on October 08, 2019:

BlackRaven111 on September 29, 2019:

I got a 100 on the quiz. I always knew I was different my whole life. I’m obsessed with animals and nature. I’m one of those people that can see things before they happen. It freaks my sisters out because I will say something and it will happen that day. I’ve always been down to people that I find interesting and other people find them weird. I love history. I work at a Renaissance festival. Now where to begin this witch journey?

Hi Alice, deja vu is extremely common and nothing to do with witchcraft.

Alice on September 16, 2019:

I always get deja vu's (is that how you spell it?) and there won't be a single week without one...wait...are deja vu's even considered as predictions? Because they kinda give me an idea in advance what kind of noise I'll be hearing in class....

Millie on September 16, 2019:

Since I was a teenager I could predict outcomes, swell bad events, and when I focused on something good in my life, it came true. Every question presented was on point. I could not believe that I answered yes to all of them. I never did much with herbs but have a huge collection. I get angry in crowds, it's like the noise is too much for me. I can not focus in a noisy environment. Then there's the moon. The moon entrances me. I even have a 3D replica of the moon that is my prized possession. I'm a Witch!

Hey Jennifer, just enjoy the exploration. You'll soon work out if it's something you want to fully incorporate into your life.

Jennifer on July 31, 2019:

I got 100%

I’ve always tried to put this part of me aside. I’m not a loon, or a groupie or anything like that. I am sincere and was sincere in your questionnaire. I’ve felt this since I was a child but being raised in the church I never explored it. My children are getting older now and I am curious and ready to see if this is just my imagination.

Hi MagicalEyes... LOL! Where did that come from? Witches are no different to other people. We have families, partners, some live alone, whatever. Just a section of the human race an' all.

MagicalEyes on July 13, 2019:

Hello. I was wondering if this can be a true that most or all witches are lonely?Thank you.

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on July 12, 2019:

Karla, you don't have to do anything at all.

Witchcraft isn't bad; only people are bad.

Hi Bev G

Thank you for explaining it to me I think I am a eclectic' to I do different witchcraft technique traditions. You are saying it is all right to all types of training in witchcraft they all are right.

Thank you again

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on July 08, 2019:

EMSS, I just do my own thing :) I'm an 'eclectic', but tend towards British traditions, rather than Wiccan. xx

EMSS on July 08, 2019:

Hi Bev G

Thank you for getting back to me what British traditional techniques do you do I would what to learn? Are they the same techniques that you written in your article ? Your article and, advice have help me a lot in my witchcraft training

Thank you

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on July 05, 2019:

Hello EMSS, hope you are doing well.

I'm afraid I don't use those techniques regularly; my witchcraft is more of the British traditional kind. I have tried both of those things, but I'm not an authority. You can probably find information via a search.

EMSS on July 05, 2019:

Hi Bev, G

Could you please explain about opening your hand Chakras, and about opening your third eye for magic. How to do this work, and how it will help a witch in their magic training. Did you write any article on theses subjects ?

I hope you are enjoying you summer.

Thank you

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on June 24, 2019:

What you describe are psychic experiences, clairvoyance, clairsentience and claircognizance. They can be combined with witchcraft so that you become a powerful witch. However, becoming a witch is something you can choose to do, or not.

As to whether your experiences are normal, well, let's say they are on the psychic side of normal :)

Im curious on how to enhance my skills. My grandmother performed excorcisms and is known within her community. Only females in our family are able to either to see in the past, present, or future. I tend to somehow have a lot of Deja Vus and as well every 2 years i run into extraterrestrial lifeforms. Is this normal? I'm sorry,know this is a lot but i want to reopen more because I do also see spirits a lot

Fallen_knight, your dreams aren't connected to witchcraft.

Silent Nathan on May 13, 2019:

Even though i do some practices in witchcraft, I still find it interesting to know or even meet others out there who practice in the craft...

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on May 06, 2019:

Hey Cathy, you don't have to go anywhere. All you need to do is read and research until you are sure of your path.

Tons of free information here: https://exemplore.com/wicca-witchcraft/

Cathy on May 06, 2019:

I really feel like I am a witch, even though I was raised Christian. I have always been drawn to Wicca! I don’t know where to go from here. I do believe in God but, I feel like there is more that I am missing! Please help me!

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on April 16, 2019:

You are welcome, Bee :)

Have fun and fascination on your journey.

bee on April 16, 2019:

do you realize just how helpful these articles are? i've been trying to do my own research for about a week, and was even misinformed by someone telling me that wiccan/pagan witches were the only "real witches" so i began stressing out over what books to read, if a coven was necessary, etc. until i made a new friend and she told me that the practice of witchcraft doesn't have to be so complicated! i don't have to convert to a religion, and i can practice on my own & in a comfortable environment. these articles are guiding me further into a much clearer path, and it's definitely not as stressful as it was for me initially! thank you so much!

it's well-written, and very easy for me to comprehend. c:

Hi Trista Jean,

What you are describing are psychic gifts, not witchcraft. Do some research on clairsentience and premonitions.

I have one or two articles that might help.
