What is a ‘Witch’?
A Witch (a gender neutral term – if you prefer enchanter/enchantress ) is someone who uses his/her will in order to bend reality. Etymologically the word ‘witch’ comes from the germanic word: weik which means to curve, to bend. We are all born with Magical Powers. There are however some of us who recognized this potential since childhood. Hence, this individual might be called ‘a Natural Witch‘ or ‘Born Witch‘.
A Natural Witch
Another definition of the Natural Witch could be the one who uses the means and powers of Mother Nature in order to cast magic. However, this list will provide insight for the ones who are wondering is they have somehow “inherited” magical powers (via bloodline or spiritline).
How many of these traits do you have?
1. I’m such a ‘look at the Moon’ person
Although Witches, Mages and Sorcerers use both the power of the Sun and Moon, there’s something about the night of the Full Moon we cannot easily explain. We somehow can feel the power of the Great Lady even if we live in the most developed city and we cannot easily catch the moonlight.
Natural Witches are deeply affected by the Moon. Their sleep circle is affected by the phases of the Moon. This means that the power of the Moon grows and wanes inside of them. This affiliation gives great potential to those individuals. After all, the Moon is associated with all types of Magic. Artemis(Diana in Latin) – sister to Apollo – Goddess of the Moon, was the mistress of Magic and Divination in Ancient Greece.
Are you an Empath? (See here if you are). If yes (!) then you have another powerful quality. ‘Empaths are people who are very sensitive to the energies/vibrations that surround them, both thoughts and emotions, of other people, animals, plants and even that of spirits. This sensitivity seems to stem from the ancient belief that everything is connected therefore it is easier for some people to make this happen- tap into the energies that surround us and become one with them.’ Emotions are the Fuel for True Magic!
If you have the natural ability to sense the energies around you, it means that you are more capable to focus and use them in order to achieve what it is you want. Empathy is a very strong quality and a proof that being “sensitive” shows Real Power and not weakness.
3. Attracting Animals
How common is it to be followed by all kinds of animals? Is there a dog keeping you company while you get back home? Are cats attracted by you? Have you noticed that birds fly around you and your home all the time? It’s not secret that Witches love the company of Animals around them. They do not even exclude them during the Magical Rituals. Ever heard of the Witch’s familiars?
Animals “see” different kinds of vibrations. Especially some animals like cats and dogs can clearly see the energy of people around them. If animals are attracted to you it means that there is an unmistakable energy imprint on your aura. This is what animals have noticed. They feel safer with you and they know that you speak the same language. Emotions is magic.
4. Not afraid of Thunders
Do you love thunders? Are you excited during a Storm? Then you are a Wizard… Harry! Thunder is considered the most noble form of natural energy, one that cannot be tamed. This is why it’s the Weapon of Zeus, kind of the Gods (along with Thor).
Thunder is in fact excessive and concentrated magical energy. If you feel magic in you growing during thunderstorms you have a natural incline for pure magic!
5. Natural Healing or Destructive abilities
This usually comes from a painful experience. Do you remember a time, when someone of your beloved ones was sick or injured and you felt terrible about it? Do you remember that you wished him/her well, or touched him/her and after few hours s/he was healed or feeling better?
Or of course the exact opposite. You wished him/her harm and something terrible happened to them. This doesn’t mean you’ve got a demonic nature. It means that you didn’t direct your emotions in a beneficial way. Now you know better. Harming others – is harming ourselves. We are all connected. Always remember this!
