WHAT IS A WITCH?

Post # 1
kk. Now i want everyone to write what they believe a witch is. I dont want any sillyness. And i dont want any1 saying Bagging out any1 elses response. And i dont want an answer from a dictionary. I want ur personal opinion.
Ill go first.
I believe a witch is a being that worships iether a god or goddess or both or many gods and/or goddesses. This being also has the power to wield the forces of nature and the energy surrounding everything.
Thats wat i believe. They need not cast spells to be a witch. They need not have the tools of the trade to be a witch. and even if ones practices witchcraft i dont believe that they r nescisarily a witch. I wouldnt say im a witch becuase i dont worship any god And/or goddess. I dont worship anything. But i practice witchcraft and magick and other things mysterious but i would still not classify me as a witch becuase of the fact i dont worship a higher being.

Now ur Turn^^

I believe a witch is someone who can control the energies within and around them. They respect nature(dont have to be a vegeterian or anyting.). Also, I think they start to see the world differently(I definately did after I started studying magick)

I see a witch as a term, a term for someone who practices a wide and vast thing that has several terms itself.

I believe a witch is someone who worship's and respects the Earth. And a God and Goddess. Since it is our home. You don't need to cast spells, you just need to feel the wonderful energy surrounding the mysterious world and universe. Just be happy.

To be a witch one must have a faith and understanding of magical workings. They are a person who practices energy workings with the universe and all things included in it.

A good witch has acceptable outcomes of there magic in their opinion and a bad witch is one who has unacceptable outcomes to their magic in their opinion. Therefor when you have an energy working that goes awry it can mean you had a bad witch or a good witch moment depending on your perspective :)

I have come to think a witch is someone who simply wants to look further.

Weither for the worse or the better, just someone who has an understanding of farther and higher forces that link things. That those forces can be controled at some degree, of belief usually. To bend what the majority would consider reality as their own sharper, more magnificent, mysterious and full reality.

A witch or a wiccan?

I ask because witchcraft and wicca have long been used interchangeably and don't mean the same thing, although many people attribute the same definitions to both.

Witchcraft is used to describe a number of low magick practices from all over the world and although its use by modern pagans appear to indicate that all witches are pagan, it is not entirely true.

Practitioners of witchcraft may be from any religious or spiritual tradition and some claim to be atheists. The term was used to describe those who engaged in malicious magick, even in the classical world and witches were vilified by the priesthoods of ancient Greece, Egypt and the rest of the classical world. Of course by the time of the dominance of Christianity, witches may have well been Christian themselves.

(Note: The belief that witchcraft was a continuation of the ancient pagan religions of the pre-Christian world is a theory mostly put forward by Dr Margaret Murray, a good Egyptologist but patchy historian, and is no longer considered to be valid. It's a lovely thought, but there is very little evidence to support it.)

However now, due to people like Margaret Murray and Gerald Gardner, the word 'witch' has come to be associated with the modern pagan movement. Many witches have pagan spiritual beliefs and are wiccan as well. Some call themselves 'Wiccan Witch', 'Pagan Witch' or just 'Witch'.

If you practise witchcraft, you are a witch, regardless of faith or spirituality.
