Most Witch's have been asked "can I see a magic trick?" from people who do not understand our lifestyle. Or maybe you have gotten more of a sly remark like; "If you are a Witch, than show me your magic". So lets clear up these misconceptions!
What is magic? Magic is defined as 'The power of apparently influencing the course of events by using mysterious or supernatural forces'. Which means that you are making it look like you have powers that are not natural to being a human being. Magic is created by a Magician in front of crowds for entertainment purposes and is usually done using misdirection, but can be a lot of fun for those who do not understand how it works! Magic can be something that a witch has interest in and does, but it is not what is meant when we say we are a Witch or perform Witchcraft.
So what does the Witch do? (and yes I sang that like 'what does the fox say'). A Witch performs what we call Magick. Pronounced the same, but meaning something quite different. Magick is the personal practice and art of using natural forces and focused awareness to bring about a desired change. When a Witch does a spell, they are reaching to a higher consciousness for guidance on how to make that want a reality. It is all about harnessing the energies of the universe and the mind to create the life you wish to have and become the version of you that you want to be. It is not something that is viewed by others and gives them that wow factor, but is very magickal to those who perform it and see the difference it makes over time!
I wish you the Brightest and most Magickal Blessings!
