Am I a Witch? Signs and Characteristics That Explain Why You Feel Different

Author:

Born in deepest Cornwall, now living in wild Wales, Bev has been practising her personal brand of eclectic witchcraft for years and years.

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 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 has 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 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 . . . What Next?

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: I Think I'm a Witch; What Are the Next Steps? If you have any other questions that I can answer with an article, please let me know in the comments section.

Note: I get 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.

How do I know if I'm a wizard or 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: How can I become a witch?

Answer: You need to study and learn everything you can. It takes a lot of time and application. You can't suddenly wake up and say, "Today, I am a witch." This page will help: https://exemplore.com/wicca-witchcraft/I-think-Im-...

You have to research about what makes a witch a witch. You have to decide what path of witchcraft you are drawn to. You have to learn how to use and direct energy (spells) otherwise you could do yourself a lot of damage. Read my article--I've given a lot of suggestions.

Question: Can a witch also be an empath?

Answer: Of course. Being an empath is a well-developed form of intuition. You feel what others are feeling. Being a witch is a path you choose. You might compare it to someone born with a gift for music who also chooses to climb mountains. One does not exclude the other.

Question: Why can I feel energy constantly moving through my hands? How can I use it?

Answer: I can't tell you why. Try some healing sessions. If someone you know has a headache or injury, place your hands on them and visualize the energy flowing from your hands into them. Picture the person as healed and feeling and better.

Question: I am eighteen years old. I'm a simian a.k.a a perakee (meaning my heart and head line is merged). I was born on Halloween and I can feel energy buzzing through my veins. My senses are quite enhanced, e.g. my hearing. I can astral project and I can see something, I call them fragments. Once, I heard my deceased family member cry at his funeral. Please tell me what to make all of this?

Answer: You have psychic/sensitive abilities. That doesn't mean you are a witch, although you can choose to be if you want to follow that path. You can develop and learn to control your abilities and use them to do good.

You need a community: https://psychicelements.com/blog/psychic-experienc...

Question: The spells I have been casting are not working. What should I do so the spells work? Should I do them in the morning and at night?

Answer: Perhaps you are not ready to work with energy. You sound as though you are very young. You should wait a couple of years, then try again.

Question: My parents named me after someone with powers. Does that mean I get to have those powers as well?

Answer: Not generally speaking. For instance, if I call my son Spiderman, it's unlikely he will develop spidey senses. However having a powerful name can be helpful for your confidence.

Question: How can I get a wand?

Answer: You can make your own wand. It can be as simple as picking up a suitable piece of driftwood or cutting one from a living tree. Here are the instructions:

Question: I come from a strong Christian background, but I have always been "left field". I have always been drawn to things not accepted by "normal people." I try to ignore these things and study the Bible. I noticed that all the points you mentioned have a natural existence in me. Could ignoring these feelings become a problem in my life? (thinking about these things makes my stomach turn and my body shake).

Answer: First of all, you don't have to abandon Christianity to have a deep connection with nature and an appreciation of all the things I mention. Secondly, there are many Christian witches out there. Witches don't do all that worshipping the devil stuff, so don't worry about that. For a while try to reconcile your Christianity with your feelings, after all, if you believe in it, you'll know that God put them there.

Witchcraft doesn't have to be about faith or religion, although some people prefer it that way. Witchcraft is just a way of life. It might incorporate a little magic (remember that Jesus used magic), perhaps you'd be interested in herbalism or something like that?

Question: I pick up on feelings good and bad, even to the point of hearing whispers. I studied a few paths but not quite settled with one. I can feel healing energies and I have an affinity to animals. I feel there is something trying to get out. When I’ve been for treatments and been asked my religion I’ve always said Pagan without prompt but I feel it’s much more than that. Would really love to discover what I’m meant to do, to help me settle if that makes sense?

Answer: It sounds to me that you are psychic and empathic. I can't tell you what your path should be - only you can decide. I have two articles that might help a little. The first is a discussion how psychic gifts aren't necessarily anything to do with witchcraft, and the second one is all the witchcraft traditions that I know - one of them might resonate with you.

Question: Ever since I was little, I've always been to feel the energy around me. I have also been gifted to see ghost and demons, my grandmother was a witch and she told me that I was one as well, but my mother does not want me to become like my grandmother. What should I do?

Answer: You are describing psychic abilities, not witchcraft. Many people get confused between the two. Witchcraft means that someone actively practices witchcraft. There are psychic witches, but you do not have to be psychic to be a witch or vice versa. You do not need to do anything. It's up to you whether you choose to develop your abilities. This article may help you:

https://exemplore.com/wicca-witchcraft/I-Have-Psyc...

Question: I always hated being called a witch. I still do. What people don't realize is that God blessed certain people with gifts. My question is why not mention God as the focal point of origin? Is it taboo to acknowledge God and his gifts?

Answer: No, it's not taboo. However, most people who follow the path of witchcraft do not subscribe to the Christian version of God. Some are atheist, others, like me, believe in a great ocean of universal energy. Many prefer to rename God as the Goddess. Or as a duality of both. In witchcraft and paganism, there is no agreement on what this source energy should be named. And that's how we like it.

Having said all that, there are many Christian witches who have been able to reconcile their faith with their path and acknowledge the Christian God as the source of their power.

You mention 'gifts'. Every single human has gifts of one kind or another. If you are referring to psychic abilities, that doesn't make someone a witch... it makes them a psychic. They are only witches if they practice witchcraft.

Question: What is a witch's mark?

Answer: A witch's mark is any mole or large freckle or scar on a person's body. They were deemed to prove that a person was guilty by the witch-finders during the times of the witch hunts. As every human on the planet has some kind of mark on the skin, it was an easy way to condemn anyone they wanted to. It was completely false 'evidence'.

This article will help explain more: https://exemplore.com/wicca-witchcraft/What-is-a-W...

Question: I have read that the moon will give a witch more powers to cast their spells. When I do spells on the night of a full moon, I visualize the energy coming into me as white light. I feel strong energy and then I do the spell. Is this right? Could you explain more on moon energy?

Answer: The moon's role in spell casting is not really connected with a witch's energy in a direct way. When we look at the full moon, we feel emotion. That is the power behind any spell. It doesn't come from 'out there.' It builds within you. The moon helps us connect and feel that energy of emotion. Then you send it out to do its work. If it helps to think of a white light moon energy, that's fine.

Question: I scored 100% on the witch test. I always felt different and like I was a loner and loved outside. Even dreamed I was a witch as a child. Does this mean I’m a witch?

Answer: Those things don't automatically make you a witch. However, you could become one if you chose to do so. Your results indicate that you have the right qualities to make witchcraft a way of life. The next steps are up to you.

Question: How can I guide my twelve-year-old daughter in becoming a witch? She is the most pure of heart person I have ever seen or known. Is there a guideline for her age?

Answer: It sounds like you are doing well as a parent, so keep doing more of the same. If she is definitely interested in witchcraft, there are tons of books and resources available to you. Remind her she is too young to be messing around with spells, but there is so much more she can learn.

This article might be of use: https://hubpages.com/wicca-witchcraft/What-Type-of...

There are some links and a book recommendation in it that might also be helpful.

Question: Does turning into a witch affect your health and make you sick?

Answer: No, choosing to be a witch does not make you sick; in fact the opposite. As you learn to manipulate energy and becoming the best witch/person you can be, you also learn to tune into natural cycles.

As a witch, you keep an open mind about everything, including health and sickness. You never blindly accept claims that allopathic medicine is always best. You are willing to explore all the options available.

Question: What if you're young and mature and have some life experiences but not all the experiences? Can you still do witchcraft?

Answer: You can do it when you want to. However, as always, choose your spells carefully and do your best to work out what any negative consequences may result. I wouldn't advise young teens to work with energy until they have reached the age of 17 or 18.

Question: How young is too young to become a witch?

Answer: There are no specific age requirements to become a witch. However, a sign of a true witch is wisdom. A potential witch knows that she has to attain maturity and life experience before she can call herself a true witch.

So my advice to you, as I have given to others here, is to start by accumulating a wealth of knowledge about nature and its cycles. Learn the names of herbs and what they are for. Do good things to help people as often as possible. Remember that a witch is a pillar of her community.

As you do all these things you will grow into the role of witch easily.

Question: I am thirteen years old and have always felt like I stood apart from everybody else. I recently found Wicca and am trying to connect with a deity. Do you have any advice? As a side note, my parents are Christian and don't approve so I havent told them. Do you know of any way to have an altar without them knowing?

Answer: If your parents are against it then you should respect their perspective. It's their home and they decide what goes on in it. You won't be 13 forever, so be a sensible witchling and cultivate patience.

As far as deities are concerned, I don't have one. Wicca isn't my thing as I find it too restricting. Maybe instead of trying to connect, you simply allow one to reveal itself over time. Again, patience.

You can have an altar... all you need is an item to represent the four elements plus spirit. So, an LED tealight for fire, a feather for air, a small cup for water and a pebble for earth. It's up to you what you use for Spirit. You could keep it in your head/heart. No-one will ever think that a small collection of objects like that has any religious connotation. Keep them in drawer.

Question: Is there any way I can get in contact with a real witch? I have a lot of questions regarding why the things that I experience happen.

Answer: You could look for groups on social media. There are lots of online communities that might be useful to you. I don't know of anything specific, but a search around Facebook should prove fruitful.

Question: When I was a little girl I always looked at the night sky but I don't know what I was looking for but I couldn't wait for night to come so I could look at the sky. Winter is my favorite time of the year because it's dark and I get to wear black. I'm 50 years old and I still feel the same way. I now want to leave my husband and grown children and live in the woods in the dark. What's going on with me?

Answer: I guess you are going through what many of us do at this age. You aren't the only one who feels like retreating from all the stresses and strains of modern life and yearning for a place in the woods, or by the ocean, or on a mountain. However, this doesn't mean you are a witch - that involves action of a different kind. What you could do is build in some 'escape time', and do just what you'd like to - spend some time every day, week or month just walking and sitting in the woods.

Question: Is it a must to use offerings like juice or wine and cakes or whatever in my rituals?

Answer: No, I'd only do that after a long complicated ritual and then only if it was in a group. However, I do recommend that you eat and drink something in order to ground yourself if you feel a bit woozy or out of it after meditation and raising energy. My offerings to nature are practical things like leaving birdseed under trees and on branches.

Question: If I build an altar, will my witch tendencies become more apparent? Is it a good first step?

Answer: It will make you feel witchier and how you feel is the most important thing. And yes, it can be a good first step.

Question: Do witches have to hide that they are a witch? I had a friend who told me so, but that just sounds odd. How do you know who else is a witch if you keep it a secret?

Answer: They can keep it secret or not. It's a personal choice. There are many witch gatherings, called 'moots', that people can attend to meet others. There are also a lot of online communities where witches can contact other witches.

Question: I'm intrigued with crystal healing and chakra. Am I considered an Eclectic witch because of my interest in crystal healing and chakra?

Answer: Those two paths probably wouldn't be considered eclectic - they are fairly close together. Eclectics have a wide range of styles and practices. You really don't need a label - but if you must have one, call yourself a crystal-energy witch.

Question: Is it possible to be a witch, empathic, Oracle, and healer, all in one?

Answer: It's possible to be an empathic, healing witch. An oracle is something else altogether. You may be referring to divination, reading tarot, etc. In which case, yes.

Question: I want to renounce witchcraft. Is that possible?

Answer: You just did it. There's no compulsion or mandatory rule that says you can't just stop being a witch.

Question: My mom hates witchcraft. She says that it is satanic, and that I would go to hell. I am thirteen and certain that I am a witch. How do I deal with this?

Answer: Firstly, your mom is coming from a place where your protection is her priority. And that is her job.

However, witchcraft and Satanism are different things. Satanists are those who believe the Christian teachings but have decided to take the opposite stance. In other words, they believe in the Christian God, Jesus, the Devil, hell, and the Bible.

Witches do not believe that there is one God. Some don't believe in any god at all, while others believe in a Goddess and a God, a mother, and a father. Witches are very fluid about their faith or lack of it. They don't believe in hell. Some think that Jesus was the greatest witch who ever lived. After all, his teachings, his miracles, the circumstances of his death (including the predictions he made), and resurrection are very magical.

At thirteen, you are far young to be practicing witchcraft, and if your mother forbids it, you must abide by her rules. When you are older, you can do what you like.

There are a whole lot of questions here from people asking similar things to you -- have a read through.

Question: When I am mad at someone, they get sick. Most of the time they develop some form of allergy or something bad happens to their loved ones. I don't even wish it. Am I a witch? If so, what kind? I'm afraid to get angry or express myself because of this.

Answer: It's unlikely that it's anything to do with you. Ill-wishing and malevolent magick generally take a lot of effort.

And of course, you can get angry and express yourself. Just be aware if you are directing your anger at someone. Perhaps you could work out a strategy to deal with it. When I get angry, I clean the house.

Question: I am eleven-years-old, when do you think I should start studying to be a witch?

Answer: You can start studying whenever you want to. However, do refer back to previous answers to other young people. You need a good dollop of life experience before you can call yourself 'witch.' Meanwhile, read all you can. Acknowledge the moon cycles. Practice gratitude, and you'll give yourself a good start.

Question: I am 22-years-old. I've always loved nature and the moon. I especially I feel connected to fish. I don’t know the reason. My sun sign is Pisces. Why do I feel connected to fish?

Answer: I suppose you are attracted to fish in the same way as some people feel and affinity with birds, or horses, or dogs. The fact that you are a Pisces may also have something to do with it. Perhaps you could consider studying ichthyology in your spare time?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ichthyology

Question: How do I know which kind of witch I am so I can study that tradition?

Answer: There's no sorting hat in witchcraft so you get to choose what kind of witch you want to be. Have a look at this article:

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

You can combine and tweak as much as you like. You don't have to label yourself anything.

Question: How can I activate my magic powers?

Answer: You misunderstand what witchcraft and spellwork is. It's not about any 'magic powers.' It's about learning to work with the energy all around us. There's no switch that turns you into a witch. It takes long years of study and practice to become a responsible witch.

Question: As a little girl, I knew I have been different. But what caught my eye about my being a witch is a few times I have had a dream, and it came true. I had a dream about a bird being in a wall and woke up to it being true. And another time is I had a dream about my aunt putting up her pool, and she did. And the last one was last night. I had a dream that we would be going to the airport to pick up my cousin's husband and we did. Does this mean anything or is it just a coincidence?

Answer: What you describe are precognitive dreams. They have nothing to do with witchcraft. A witch practices the craft, which involves study and living like a witch. S/he may or not have similar dreams. This article will explain more clearly:

https://hubpages.com/wicca-witchcraft/I-Have-Psych...

Question: I know I'm different from others. Do witches have different personalities?

Answer: Of course witches have different personalities. We are human beings like everyone else. We just believe in a certain way of being - and that also varies from witch to witch.

Question: I'm 9-years-old and I'm 100% sure I'm a witch but I'm scared of telling others. They bully me for it. What do I do?

Answer: At nine years old, you are far too young to be a witch. To become a witch a person needs to have a lot of life experience. It also takes many years of study. It's best not to tell anyone that you believe you are a witch because of your young age, and in any case, it's not actually true yet. When you are older it will be easier. Meanwhile read up as much as you can. Here's another article that may help:

https://exemplore.com/wicca-witchcraft/Im-a-Young-...

Question: I'm a man, and I’m drawn to both witchcraft and shamanism, 100% according to your poll. Is there a problem with being both? I’ve never had a course in witchcraft but have taken two shamanic courses. Healing, herbs, and animals are my passions.

Answer: Of course not. I think that the problem is that most people want to fit into a category or give themselves a label. Most forms of witchcraft are based on some other tradition. For instance, Wicca incorporates a lot of Celtic, or what they believe to be Celtic, influences. High Magick is based on Egyptian rituals, you get the picture. So, being a modern witch, you get to be whatever you want to be. Scrunch up that label and throw it away.

Question: What does it mean to glow in all my pictures? It is a golden glow. I can relate to almost everything in this article.

Answer: Is it when your photo is taken with all cameras, or just the same one? If it is all cameras, then it means you have an extremely bright aura and are literally radiating energy. Read up about auras, you might find information that resonates with you.

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: I am highly intuitive, I love nature and the night. I got %100 on the test. How do I fine tune these gifts into witchcraft?

Answer: It's up to you. You can choose your own path if you wish to pursue a witchy life. I have some other articles that might help.

Question: I’ve moved things with my eyes, and can’t control it. What do I do?

Answer: You learn to control it by doing exercises. Practice deliberately moving things, and you will automatically learn how to control it. Do some research on psychokinesis because that's your gift. Another name for it is telekinesis. It doesn't mean you are a witch.

Question: My parents don't know about me being a witch, and since they're Christian they don't believe in my practices, and they don't allow spell books. What should I do?

Answer: You don't have to make a big deal out of being a witch while you are young. The best thing to do is to study and research as much as you can. There are very many resources available on the web.

Meanwhile, there are lots of small, unnoticeable rituals you can incorporate into your daily life: https://hubpages.com/wicca-witchcraft/50-Ways-To-B...

Question: I get so much energy from the sun. I can't even explain my attraction to the sun. I feel and just know I'm different, but I keep reading about how as a 'witch,' you're drawn to the moon. Have you ever heard of this before?

Answer: It's not unusual for people to be more energized by the Sun. I would think most people in the Northern Hemisphere are pleased when the sun is shining. We are not called 'sun worshippers' for nothing.

The moon is still influential because humans are made up of so much water, and the moon will affect even an oyster that has been transported a thousand miles from the sea. So her cycles are bound to affect us too.

Question: What spells are very good for beginners?

Answer: I have some suggestions for areas to work on in this article: https://hubpages.com/wicca-witchcraft/How-To-Begin...

The thing to consider is how this might affect another person. Be careful with your wording. For example, wishing for money and then you receive a sum because a close relative died, they may well have died anyway, but there will be guilt. So make sure you always add the clause, "And it harms none," or variations of it.

Things like protection rituals are always a good place to begin. Small amounts of money, good results for exams, improved health, etc. I've had success doing lost pet spells, and 'getting my laptop fixed' spells.

Question: Can I curse a spell?

Answer: If you mean can you block a spell, then yes, you can. Spells are merely the manipulation of energy. So, if you think someone has placed a spell on you, you can perform a counterspell which should cancel out the original and return it to the person who cast it.

If you mean can you add a dose of hatred to a spell, then yes, you can do that as well. I would advise against it because, as I mentioned above, it can return to you with additional force...and you wouldn't want that.

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: 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.

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/Psychic-Pro...

Good luck.

Vicki Carroll from Greater Birmingham Area 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.

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

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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:

Hi Bunga Rin, if I were looking for a group, I'd try Instagram and Facebook - you may even be able to find like-minded people close to where you live.

Thank you for your kinds words. x

Bunga Rin on October 08, 2019:

Hello im new to this, do you know where i can find witches community online where i can chat and sharing with other witches? Thank you, i love your articles

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?

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on September 22, 2019:

The great thing is, Jing Sun, is that you get to decide. I can't read a few sentences and determine who you are. Only you can know yourself.

Jing Sun on September 22, 2019:

I believe in karmic law. I like essential oils. I am a rescuer of cats and dogs. I am a nature defender also. I love trees. I love silver. I listen to Erutan and Enya's songs. I know there is something in me. What am I really?

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on September 21, 2019:

That's something you have to work out, Linda. Discovering your spirituality is a path only you can choose.

Linda Howard on September 21, 2019:

I scored a high 80% I know I'm empathic with animals I'm really drawn to tumble stones and I can only breath when in the country side What am I and how do I discover more about myself

Wifi S. Excellent. I shall follow you. And thank you for your kind words.

Wifi Student from New Delhi on September 16, 2019:

I love the way you write. Your thought and imagination inspires me a lot. I am also trying to write articles like you.

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.

Bev G (author) from Wales, UK on July 13, 2019:

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.

Karlapoleth on July 12, 2019:

Hello bev!

ive always felt different and out of place, i got an 88% what do i do now im confused. And growing up ive bee told witchcraft is bad. HELP!

EMSS on July 09, 2019:

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 :)

Nemo on June 24, 2019:

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

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

Fallen_knight, your dreams aren't connected to witchcraft.

You might find your answer here: https://exemplore.com/wicca-witchcraft/I-Have-Psyc...

Fallen_knight on June 18, 2019:

So I have these dreams at night had them since I was a kid but they always feel real and always come true iv seen and heard voices since I was a kid too can u help me I need to know what's going on.

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:

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

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.
