Born in to witchcraft

Post # 1
So quick question how many of you were born in to witchcraft and how many of you weren't. Someone had just told me as stating "facts" that you can only be born into witchcraft now from what I believe anyone can become a witch as long as you believe that magic is real. Magic is no easy task and can take a lot of energy especially from a new witch like myself. It takes a lot of practice and a lot of focus. I would like to know what everyone else believes.

I wasn't born a witch! I was taught witchcraft by a witch. And yes, it took a long time, about fifteen years.

But really, you never stop learning. I was still learning things from my teacher for about fifty years!
I'm still learning now from this site!

To my knowledge, none of my family practice or have practiced witchcraft (although my grandma had somewhat of an interest in occult things she never took it beyond a book or two and a Ouija board) so I'm certainly not "born into witchcraft." As far as I can tell from general observation, whether or not your parents or grandparents practiced magic has very little to do with actual ability to cast or divine or whatever. The advantage (if there is one) seems to come from early exposure as a child and having someone to take you under their wing. Also, sometimes families have unique traditions that you wouldn't be able to find online or in a book.

Kids are predisposed to do as their parents do and to copy them. It's one of the primary ways we learn as infants. So, yeah, people who had witches as parents might have an advantage but the bit about having to be born into witchcraft is pure fluff and you should pay them no mind.

I was raised a baptist, found witchery as a teenager. None of my family were witches. My grandparents had some folk practices (Ozark & Roma respectfully), but that's very far and tame compared to witchcraft as we tend to know it.

Whoever this person is would have to discount practically every single person whose practiced witchcraft in the last century save for a small handful of people. He or she is outright wrong.

I was born into the Shinto religion; My mother and Father both forge weapons and 'enchant' them, however I was not 'born into magic'. I was raised Shinto and encouraged, yet I could have not studied.

I have heard of people saying that as well, that 'Born witches' and 'True-blood magic users' Exist, when in all reality, magic is energy; you cannot transport that by blood!
