Can you teach me to become a witch?

I would like to become a witch and cast spells & was wondering if you could tell me how to become a witch. -Heather

Hello there Heather, Well my dear, there is no one tried and true path to becoming a witch or to finding one’s road into the faith, per se. Like many things out there, the experience tends to vary from person to person…. Being a witch is a matter of faith and belief, just like with any other system of beliefs. Being a witch is about a lot more than simply casting spells. It is much like any other system of beliefs in that the trappings and rituals are only small portions of the overall whole. And thus, much like taking the Eucharist does not make you a Catholic, intoning a spell does not make you a witch…. Becoming a practitioner of the wise craft requires a very real level of commitment and dedication. It is neither a quick, nor easy road to undertake and I would never suggest it to anyone who is going to take it lightly. So, if you think you might be interested in one of the many belief systems associated with being a witch (I personally am a wiccan) then I would suggest you take the time to do a bit of research and learn a bit about the dogma of the beliefs…. Perhaps look for a bookstore in your local town that caters to such things and go and speak to the people there about their experiences and how they went about finding their faith….

    Hello Heather,

    Just wanted to comment a bit on your question…I note that if anything you mentioned wanting to be a witch to cast spells. I’ll say up front, you don’t have to be a witch to cast spells. Rose explained being a witch excellently and I will add that it can take years. I personally studied for about three years before becoming a 1st degree witch. Like Rose, I too am Wiccan. It’s a belief system,a way of life. It’s been about 5 years down the road now and I’m still learning, especially about myself. I can tell you this begins there within you. Books can be FYI and a good start but ultimately the magick (with a ‘K’)is right there inside of you. If you can remember being a child and pretending and making believe it will be a beginning. It’s that innocence that is lost and corrupted in adulthood that you must recover. Thereafter…be still in your mind and steady in your heart…and listen.Be at peace and quiet in your mind..and listen. It will come to you. May the brightest of blessings be with you.
