Is one born Wiccan or can it be taught?

How do you become a wiccan or are you born being one?

Merry Meet Seeker! 

Thank you for your question. First I want to clarify something and that is that anybody can become a Witch! There are essentially only two requirements: The first requirement relates to your heart, your soul and your character. The second requirement relates to training. 

Let us look at the first requirement. Witchcraft is a positive, earthy religion dedicated to worshipping the Goddess and the God. Us Witches respect and honor all of Creation as an expression of the Divine. We are responsible, humble, caring and tolerant towards others. Witches are self-disciplined in their daily lives, spiritual lives and magickal lives. Put simply, this is the set of rules according to which Witches live. 

The second requirement is knowledge and training. You can get your training in three ways.

1. Attend a Wicca 101 course – either in person or on the internet. Should you decide to attend an internet based training course, choose one where you can interact with your instructor and other students.

2. Self-training. You can obtain information from either books or from the internet.

I recommend the following books:

Wicca: A guide for the Solitary Practitioner by Scott Cunningham ISBN 0-87542-118-0.

Solitary Witch by Silver Ravenwolf ISBN 0-7387-0319-2.

3. Join a coven. Just make sure that you are comfortable with the practices, the ethics and the interaction between coven members.

As I said before – anybody can become a Witch, provided that they hold love and light in their hearts, accept the theology of the Craft and that they are committed to study and persevere.

May your journey be blessed, dear Seeker, and may you find what you seek.

In Love and Light! Blessed Be.

    I have found your website very interesting.
    I am 16 and I always have wanted to do spells, if anything White magick is my main point. For some reason I feel there is the power within me to do magick, because when I think of a spell I want to do, or I close my eyes to think of one, I get this feeling in my veins, like some sort of power. But I can’t seem to do it, the only thing I am able to do but never call on and can’t control is when time speeds up for me, everything goes fast, it has gotten weaker from when I was younger but it still happens now. I would like an email from you if you think there is a way to help me become a witch and control what I can do. (I am not 100% sure if the time speeding up is caused by me)
