How to Become a Witch and Practice Witchcraft

Author:

I am a writer of witchery and am interested in all aspects of religious history and expression.

What Is Witchcraft?

Witchcraft is one of the world's oldest spiritual traditions, yet it is also one of the most misunderstood. Television, movies, and comic books abound with stereotypes and misconceptions about what it really means to be a witch. Many people decide they want to become a witch because they relate to the witches and wizards in fictional stories, such as Harry Potter or The Chronicles of Narnia. However, the magic you see portrayed on screen is usually significantly different from real magick practiced by devout witches, wizards, sorcerers, and ceremonial magickians every day.

Though pop culture might indicate otherwise, witchcraft isn't just about black cats and pointy hats.

Though pop culture might indicate otherwise, witchcraft isn't just about black cats and pointy hats.

Okay, so witchcraft is often misunderstood. But what is witchcraft? To put it simply, witchcraft is the practice of magick. That's it. Contrary to popular belief, witchcraft is not a religion; it is a spiritual practice that may or may not be part of a person's religious faith. Witchcraft is often conflated with Wicca, which is an actual religion. It is important to remember that not all witches are Wiccan, and not all Wiccans are witches. Many Wiccans practice witchcraft, but many do not. Many who practice witchcraft are Wiccan, but most are not.

What Is Magick?

Magick is alive and well, although there is considerable debate as to what it really is. Some believe magick to be a purely spiritual power, while others believe that it is just as much of a force in the natural universe as gravity or electricity. One popular notion is that magick does not actually violate the natural laws of the physical universe, but is simply a law unto itself that we do not yet have the scientific means to understand.

Similar beliefs are held about psychic powers and other paranormal phenomena. From this perspective, magick is very similar to dark matter; we know it exists, but we just can't quite tell what it is or what it looks like. Witchcraft is the use of magick to achieve an end that cannot easily be achieved through normal or mundane means.

What Type of Witchcraft Should I Practice?

Before you cast a spell, you should spend a considerable amount of time researching witchcraft. There are various forms of witchcraft, and which one resonates best with you will determine how you cast a spell.

A Few Common Types of Witchcraft:

  • Green Witchcraft: This form of witchcraft is focused on earth, nature, and the elements. It often draws on the connections to the forest found in the folklore, folk religion, and folk magic of ancient cultures. Green witches typically use trees, soil, plants, flowers, and herbs for their magickal and medicinal values.
  • Hedge Witchcraft: This is a nature-based form of witchcraft featuring elements of shamanism as well as astral projection, midwifery, and healing. Hedge witches often serve as mediums between spirits and people, and "hedge" refers to a boundary (both physical and metaphysical).
  • Eclectic Witchcraft: This is a blend of various traditions including, but not limited to, other types of witchcraft. This individualized form of witchcraft can be tailored to suit the witch's needs and abilities and is characterized by adaptability and openness to other forms of practice.
  • Dianic Witchcraft: is part of a neopagan religion centered around a divine goddess with little to no emphasis on a male deity. Though it is named after the Greek goddess, Diana, Dianic witchcraft worships goddesses from many cultures and considers them to be various aspects of one Goddess.
  • Kitchen Witchcraft: This practical witchcraft is focused on the use of herbs and other natural specimens common to everyday life. Kitchen witches tend to focus on magick that can be used to help regular people. They typically garner high respect and are considered to be "wise women" once they pass middle age.
  • Gardnerian Witchcraft: This is a tradition in the neopagan religion of Wicca, which was founded by Gerald Gardner in the 1950s. Unlike the other witches on this list, to be a Gardnerian witch, one must be initiated by a pre-existing member of a coven.

What Do I Need to Cast a Spell?

Tools, or correspondences, are powerful items that can be used to draw focus and symbolize the power within yourself and within nature, but you don't need to go out and buy a bunch of things before you start practicing witchcraft. Some supplies can be gathered quite cheaply or even for free (such as flowers and herbs). In fact, some people argue that natural or homemade supplies are more potent than store-bought ones. Below, you will find a list of some of the most common witchcraft supplies and tools, both free and otherwise.

Common Witchcraft Supplies and Spellcraft Tools

  • Cauldron: This small pot, typically made of cast iron, is used to mix and heat potions for spellwork. It is one of the most popular witchcraft tools in existence.
  • Mortar and Pestle: This small cup, typically made of cast iron, is paired with a blunt grinding implement used to crush herbs and spices for spells and rituals.
  • Herbs: A variety of both common and rare herbs are used to add effect to rituals and potions. Sage is one of the most common herbs for spells and is used to purify and protect.
  • Flowers: Many spells call for the use of flowers for their powerful symbolism and beautiful fragrances.
  • Gemstones: Each gemstone has magickal significance and can be used as a correspondent in rituals or to provide healing. They are often used for protection, focus, and spells.
  • Crystals: Crystals are commonly used to purify a sacred space prior to a ritual, provide healing and protection, and to amplify the magickal properties of gemstones.
  • Magickal Amulets and Talismans: These are powerful symbols that can be used in spellcraft or worn for daily protection and magickal enhancement.
  • Wand: This stick of wood or some other material is used to cast a circle.
  • Athame: This blade is used to cast a circle of protection for spellwork and is also used within spells.
  • Salt: Commonly used to cast a circle of protection, salt also prevents evil spirits from entering a room and is used in other protective spells and cleansing spells.
  • God and Goddess Statues: These are used to draw focus to the God and Goddess during rituals, and may be used to call their presence to a ritual circle.

While all of these things can be used as important correspondences for spellwork, you do not actually need any physical item to cast a spell. Witchcraft draws its power from the user's intentions and the magick that is within the individual. If you are capable of using magick, you are able to do so with or without these tools.

How to Collect Your Own Witchcraft Supplies

The best and simplest way to begin practicing witchcraft and cast your first spell is to research. Learn as much as you can about the various traditions and find the correspondences (physical symbols of invisible qualities or forces) that appeal the most to you. A very powerful ritual can be performed without ever spending a dime. Go to your favorite spot in nature, such as a beach or the woods, and collect stones, shells, leaves, flowers, and other items that have some magickal significance to you. These items cost nothing and are every bit as powerful as pricey correspondences purchased online. In the end, it all comes down to personal preference, so you should do some experimenting to find what works best for you.

So How Do I Cast a Spell Already?

Magick is within you if witchcraft is truly the path you're meant to take. It sounds cheesy, but it's a simple reality. However, that doesn't mean that learning to use magick is easy. It takes lots of research, meditation, and introspection to find the correspondences, qualities, and traditions that work for you personally.

There's No Straight Answer

Witchcraft is a personal path. Many new practitioners get frustrated when they can't find any "straight answers" from seasoned witches, sorcerers, and ceremonial magickians on how to start practicing. Because witchcraft is so personal, it is impossible to tell someone exactly what they should or shouldn't do. Yes, you can find numerous spells from other witches online, but that doesn't mean that they will be effective for you. Just because a spell works for one witchcraft practitioner does not mean it will work for another witch.

Do Your Research and Be Prepared to Fail at First

Spells are highly personal, as well. Experienced magick users create their own spells for the greatest impact. There is no single "Book of Spells" that witches draw from, although many "Books of Shadows" are passed down through familial witch lines. If the person practicing the spell has not fully cast their personal intentions and energy into the spell, it will not work for them, no matter how well put-together the spell may seem. Googling "free spells" might give you some ideas, but you're better off researching these online spells and learning from their common themes and attributes rather than trying to replicate them exactly.

Once you are comfortable with the idea of spellcraft and which elements and witchcraft tools mean the most to you, you will find it much easier to cast your first spell.

Does Witchcraft Really Work?

Yes and no. Like anything, witchcraft depends on your intentions and perception. If your perception of witchcraft is a force that can be manipulated and used to twist the laws of reality to produce outcomes that are impossible through mundane means, then no. Witchcraft may not be understood fully, but it does follow the natural laws. The popular consensus is that, no, you will not be able to cast a spell to magickally teleport yourself from one end of the country to the other. Even the most powerful witch has to book a flight just like everyone else. Likewise, you won't be able to cast a spell on yourself that will instantly make you ten pounds lighter. Spellcraft obeys the same laws of physics as the rest of the universe, it just takes a different route to get there.

However, if you perceive witchcraft as a powerful and mysterious natural force that obeys certain fundamental laws and principles, then yes, witchcraft is absolutely real and spells do work. You get out of spellwork what you put into it. If you are sure of your intentions and you have chosen correspondences and/or magick words that you believe have the power to bring about the result you seek, your spell will work. If you are distracted or doubtful, chances are that your spell will fail.

Is magick natural or supernatural? Many believe that magick is as natural a part of the universe as dark matter or gravity.

Is Witchcraft Evil or Dangerous?

Witchcraft itself is neither good nor evil. Like any other tool, witchcraft can be used for evil or it can be used for good. Witchcraft is entirely dependent upon the intentions of the individual practitioner. For this reason, it is incredibly important to be sure of your intentions when casting a spell.

It Comes Down to Individual Intention

Magick itself comes from nature. Witchcraft is the use of magick to achieve a desired end. Magick is a neutral force, and witchcraft is a neutral practice. The vast majority of witches and magick practitioners draw their powers from nature. Some of us work with deities, and others do not. Some spells manifest in a physical change that follows the rules of nature, but others are emotional or psychic in nature. Some of the most powerful and dangerous spells are those which interfere with the free will of another person, a phenomenon which many call "black magick."

Depending on your path, spells that harm or hinder the will of another person may be forbidden and even result in severe consequences (for example, Wiccan witches follow the Wiccan Rede, which forbids using magick to harm another person).

To continue reading about this somewhat loaded question, read The 10 Most Annoying Things Christians Say To Pagans, Witches, & Wiccans.

The Rule of 3 (a.k.a. the Law of 3 or the Threefold Law)

Many witches, particularly those who practice the Wiccan path, believe in something called the Rule of 3. This states that whatever intentions you put out into the universe are sent back to you threefold, similar to karma. If you cast positive spells, you will receive the benefits of that positivity threefold. If you cast negative or harmful spells, you will receive the consequences of that negativity threefold. There are many different interpretations, and it is important to remember that the Rule of 3, while often quoted as if it applies to all magick practitioners, is largely a tenet of Wicca. Many of us who practice magick do not believe in the Rule of 3, and among those who do, there are a variety of interpretations as to what it actually means.

What Is Magick To You?

Closing Thoughts on Witchcraft and Magick

There is no one right way to practice witchcraft, but there are some pitfalls to avoid. You are not required to buy anything to begin practicing witchcraft, but there are plenty of cheap witchcraft supplies and tools that can make practice more effective. There is no unified path when it comes to magick, but there are common traditions chosen by many of the witches, sorcerers, and others who practice today.

Witchcraft is a personal path, a neutral practice that is shaped by the character of your intentions. Whichever path you choose, respect the force of magick and respect yourself enough to put the time and research into shaping your own path. Learning from other witches is essential, but only you can decide where this winding path leads.

Christina on April 12, 2020:

Hey, Alexandra, I'm in the same situation and I've contributed lots of thought into it. Witchcraft doesn't have to include worshipping deities and you can still be a Christian. I think in today's society we are advanced enough to be able to accept others as Christians and as long as you don't use it as a tool of evil I think you're fine.

kadence on April 11, 2020:

hi is it a sign your a witch if you keep having dreams of you being a witch because the dreams wont stop and im going crazy to know if i am a witch i've always felt different from a lot of people.

Stormy on March 15, 2020:

I am a baby eclectic witch but i am also Christian i believe all things are through god and that includes magic. It was placed here for us just as the animals and plants were. How you get to heaven and how i get to heaven don't have to be the same. As long as you belive in god and his son and that all things are through him then you are saved. Just like that.

Joey (author) on March 13, 2020:

To Ellen and anyone else considering witchcraft, I urge you to reconsider. I practiced for many, many years, a lot longer than most who are claiming I'm wrong about it being a dangerous path, and it only ever left me empty and searching for more. No matter what I achieved, it was never enough.

guys if u didn't read what she's saying is that she converted to God/Jesus and no longer practices witch craft

MoonFae from USA on January 31, 2020:

@arnold

I totally understand that feeling. That was totally me a few months ago.

I'd recommend picking a general pathway that appeals to you. I know there are so many paths and "types" of witches out there, but I'd start with a specific type of MAGICK that appeals to you. Not type of witch. Maybe you're interested in herbal magick, like me. Or maybe candle magick appeals more to you. How about crystal workings? Tarot?

But the most important thing is to study A LOT. I'm in a year-and-a-day studying period right now, where I generally avoid using magick and focus on acquiring background knowledge on witchcraft, magick, Wicca, and the history of witches. My favorite sources are learnreligions.com, exemplore.com/wicca-witchcraft, and YouTube videos from practicing witches (The Witch of Wonderlust, HearthWitch, HarmonyNice, etc.). I'd also recommend trying out spellsofmagic.com, but there's an awful lot of fake spells on that site..

I can't tell you where to start. The more you learn, the more you understand magick and the less you feel confused. It's only been a few months, and I already feel confident about witchcraft. I really hope this helps.

arnold on January 29, 2020:

I really want to start learning witchcraft but I don't know where or how to begin.

Maddie on January 29, 2020:

@joselyn Hi! I'm pretty much a baby witch right now, but I dont think you can be all of the witches listed as they differ so much from each other. Eclectic is probably what you are most wanting to be as it combines bits and pieces of all of them and allows you to characterize yourself. If you want to be a truly skilled and good witch, I think it is impossible to be all of them.

Joselyn on January 25, 2020:

Is it possible to be all of the witches listed and do the magick or can you only be one?

beth on January 20, 2020:

do u have to be a certain age to do witchcraft effectively?

Dani on January 17, 2020:

I’m very interested in the nature and inner workings of witchcraft and Wicca. If I want to start practicing, how exactly should I start? What should I do first?

Serenity on January 17, 2020:

- Hello, anyone can become a witch. It just takes dedication and time, your first step would be to doing research by reading books or researching sites created by experienced witches themselves, but remember that it's a personalized experience which is why sometimes witches do not give out spells as often but instead hand out tips/guides since spells may only work for certain individuals.

- Witchcraft is a practice while Wicca is the religion meaning they are different

- The Devil/Satan is necessarily NOT worshipped by witches, Satan is mainly a christian belief

- Witchcraft is associated with things such as Crystals, Mythology, Astrology, Tarot cards, Numerology, Nature, self care, and much more.

I want to be a witch and I feel a connection to things most people arent. How would I be able to be a 100% witch?

Dutchy on December 23, 2019:

The question is: Naturalism vs Beliefs.

There are many Beliefs out here.

Just to name a few:

Christianity

Hinduism

Buddism

Islam

Judaism

It does not matter what you believe is the true faith. In the end, it does not matter what you follow or practice,

What matter's is you are happy.

For me happieness is helping my familly in whatever way i can.

Not being a burden to my neighbors or fellow man.

If you believe in one God or what ever power is the one and only, you are wrong. This is what creates hate and envy.

Let's take this for an example:

I sit in a class room of 20 peoples. We sit in a circle and i get to say a scentance to the person on my left. This scentance must be passed along to the person sitting to the left untill it returns to me.

100% of the time the scentance i said does not return to me the same way. This is just an exaple of a story passed along over 20 peoples on a matter of minutes.

Let's say i said: I want to buy 10 apples.

It might come back to me: I want to buy 9 bananas.

This is just one classroom filled with 20 people.

Now inmagine this with any writen word of faith, re-writen and passed along over the centuries just so our evolving languages could understand.

Dutchy on December 23, 2019:

Hey there

I know i am a green witch.

I don't need to research this as you suggest, im a prodigy after all. I was slamming curses at my mom when i was 1 year old and now that i am 9 my vocabulary has really expanded.

( XD, the second part is bullshit, but i thought it was funny. Edit this how you see fit. I do think i am a green witch though. Iv'e always climbed the highest trees, used herbs to treat my brothers when they got burned from thistle or nettles or bug bites, without even knowing their names or application.)

Tasha on November 28, 2019:

I have some unexplainable birthmarks on my body and with the curiosity I came on google to find some results and then I came across marks that looks like mind interpreted “witch marks or Devil marks”. So I fine myself here and more curious while reading and wanting to learn more. I’ve always believe there are things in me that need to be explained or need answers to. I believe my using magick I can find answers to my all my questions.

I’m a Christian and I wish to practice witchcraft, but I’m not sure if I should because of my believe for God in heaven, Christ Jesus. Your article is really helpful, you say everything in details. And I’m happy for you being born again and know Christ Jesus now a Christian and that makes you stop witchcraft. I want to do magick and have no intention to hurt anyone or against someone’s Will but to help myself and know more of the possibilities of magick and spirit wold. And as a Christian I don’t feel good or comfortable calling other Gods or Goddesses or using their status in the name of doing magick, witchcraft, or casting spells. So I want an advice from you, as a Christian that you are and as a Christian that I am, would you encourage me doing Magick,Witchcraft?

Rogus McBogus on November 07, 2019:

Becoming a Witch is not difficult, but finding the right path and information can be. Witchcraft has various versions which this article covered, but the Gardenarian version is what Wicca is based on, though Wicca has evolved into a far more fluffy, glittery and expensive practice.

I practice a very Traditional form of Witchcraft, which is a little eclectic at times. I don't like tag names, but if I had to use one, i would say I am a Green Witch.

I don't need an altar or fancy items, I don't have gods or goddesses. I have myself and nature. I use herbs, stones, the elements and what ever else mother nature can provide. I connect with mother nature and use her energy, along with the sun, the moon and the four elements.

I am happy to help with any questions to those who have any.

I would really like to be a witch but i need help how to become one i am almost 13, i feel nervous bit at the same time i feel confident aboit this.

Luna on November 01, 2019:

Hi although I am almost 13, I feel very connected with witchcraft. I have been studying for almost 4 months. I found this website very helpful for my magick practice. I believe that magick is your own and that you can be taught more by wise Witches and Sorcerers. I find it difficult in my classroom (i attend a montessori private school) to keep my mouth shut when my teacher talks about the time of Puritanism and i find the word Warlock offensive. I myself identify as a lesbian and i am trying to figure out my ways in witchcraft while getting in touch with my own self

Bella on October 25, 2019:

You didn’t even show magik

Akko Parker on October 25, 2019:

I belive that your magick is your own. I myself are only 11 years old but i have started to notice mang changes in my everyday life. The way i found out was a spiritual connection within my self. Although some people msy find out differently. Also i found this website really useful for my future magick practice. I do reccomend reading it all through from the top because the you get a better idea of what this article is about. Best of luck to everyone who is just starting out! Hope this is useful!!!!

Witchcraft is not a sin. In fact, the Law of Moses’s apparent “restriction”on witchcraft actually translates as “thou shalt not suffer a practitioner of dark arts to live” or “thou shalt not suffer a poisoner to live”.

Magicians prove a spiritual world exists. Criss Angel says 'Believe'.

You are born a witch much the same as someone is born 'gay' you can't change what you are. You can reject your calling but then you are not chosen. Teleporting happens. Perhaps you should acknowledge the testimonies of witches whom have converted to christianity.

Hello, I have a question about Green Witches. Since they focus on the importance and most of the good in nature, would those type of witches still be considered sinners in God's eyes, even though they are just practicing the energies of nature?

@Ruby, first, I'm so sorry that someone took your wallet! I know firsthand what a stressful experience it is to lose something like that. If you will read the update to this article, you'll see that I am no longer a witch, so any advice I once would have given about spells would be in contradiction to what I now believe. However, I will say that as an Anglican Christian, whenever I lose something important, I ask St. Anthony for prayer to help me find it and that intercession has worked in every single case, 10000 times better than my spells ever did! Here's an article if you want to learn more about this powerful and sacred practice:

@Jordan Ofri, I'm not sure if you're talking to me or someone else, but if the former, read the update to this article and you will see that I am no longer a witch and I have converted to Christianity. If the latter, I can say that for all the wonderful believers who shared the Gospel with me and helped me see that practicing witchcraft is in disobedience to God, not a one of them used that verse to threaten me.

Taking Scripture vastly out of context and using it to threaten violence toward others is not remotely Christian. You may think you're speaking for God, but you're being used by Satan to spread his malicious lies that all Christians are hateful and violent. We can call out false teachings (and should!) and urge people to repent of sin without being hateful, twisting the Word, and threatening. I pray that you repent and let the Holy Spirit guide your study of Scripture rather than cherry picking verses to use as weapons against others.

I believe what you are saying. And I need your help and guide to do magick for my problem. I just don't want to hurt anybody, but I just want signs or means to let me know who got my wallet. Somebody took my wallet(important things inside). I want to know who got it, but I don't know how to do magick for this. Can you teach or give me an ideas? Thank you.

Jesus is back and you better hide under a rock... We are going to shut you down quickly. do you understand this. Game is over... pack your bags witch. Exodus 22:18

The content of the article is unchanged, save for an update added at the top. It has been shared as well as stolen and reposted on numerous sites over the years, so changing the title would just make things more confusing. I hope that explains my reasoning a bit more, and thank you for sharing your thoughts. I don't mean that sarcastically--it's not my intention to be deceitful in any way, so I'll add a note explaining this in the update as well.

Joey (author) on October 11, 2019:

Can they? Yes. Should they? I would say absolutely not. Even when I was a practicing witch, I was wary of all the TV shows and movies that target children, who aren't ready to open some of the doors that can't be shut once you've explored the occult. To anyone considering this, please be careful!

Can a kid practice witchcraft and start casting spells ?

Joey (author) on October 08, 2019:

Hi everyone! I'm glad you found my article, it has recently been updated to include a link to my testimony. I'm no longer a witch, and I don't stand by what I wrote here anymore. If you want to know why, please read the linked article at the top of this page!

Since I learned to read I would only read fantasy books and I fell in love and obsessed with becoming a witch but people are saying witchcraft doesn’t exist and their ruining my childhood dream

Chariot on October 05, 2019:

I’ve been obsessed with werewolves, witches, vampires, hybrids, (etc) but my mom never told me it was real and so I asked and she said “yes witch craft is real but very dangerous that everything comes at a price.” But then I was like every witchy thing comes with a loophole. But before I found out I always tried small spells to see if I was a witch or vampire (etc) but it never worked so now I’m hear so I need to do this, I want to do this.
