Is Witchcraft Real? What is Witchcraft?
To answer the question simply, yes witchcraft is indeed real. Witchcraft is defined as the practice of or use of magic. Of course, this still all sounds like it’s not real without hearing the long answer.
Witchcraft is not a religion, albeit there are still rules and structures that need to be followed. Witchcraft encompasses many religions, though it is mostly thought of in association with Wicca. It is a learning and understanding of universal forces and consciousness, and how to connect to these things in order to impact change in your reality through them. That impact, the thing that happens when practicing witchcraft, is called magic.
We’ve mystified and obscured the truths and nature of these things over millennia, mostly done by religion and religious figures intending to maintain a place in hierarchical societies that held some semblance of sway and power.
What is the Meaning of Witchcraft?
When brought to its bare and most basic nature, witchcraft can be seen as a set of universal structures and rules that magical practices (spells and the like) are bound by. Often it is believed that magic is some mysterious unknown hidden in rituals and shadowed corners, but this is not the case. Magic itself is simply energy imbued with intent.
Witchcraft is simply a way of understanding the means by which you can imbue universal energy with personal intent, thereby actively shaping and impacting personal reality. Everything from the light/wave/particle that rays of light consist of, to the largest planetary body in the universe…holds energy.
How Real is Witchcraft?
We ourselves, though not unique in the quality, project a field of bio-electromagnetic energy around our bodies, observable through Kirlian photography, which we often hear referred to as an “Aura”. Kirlian photography itself was an accidental discovery that led to the finding that we can photograph electromagnetic energy fields and their variations and movements even when taken in a series.
Through focus and intent, it is possible to use this field in much the way you move your muscles, allowing for the gathering and focusing of external (universal) energies. The next step from there is to then imbue the energy with personal intent and personal energy, and ultimately release it back into the world.
Witchcraft is Real
Things like “The Law of Attraction”, which teach you to focus on positive energies to draw positive things you desire into your life, are based on the use of this energy. It’s not a New Age, newfound practice by any means, being founded on an understanding of synchronicity which has been a naturally occurring phenomenon for ages.
This and many other practices that are burgeoning into our daily lives through cultural mixes, like meditation and Tai Chi, and yoga, all have their basis in the understanding and manipulation of personal energy, the foundation of understanding of any and all magical practices.
So if you believe in any of these things, or already incorporate them into your life, you are already halfway to doing magic….already practicing the quite real witchcraft.
