  • Anyone who uses a physical act, imbued with emotional connection aka "energy" in order to achieve a goal.

    Favorite example:

    Making chicken soup from scratch from your "secret recipe" and hoping it makes a loved one feel better - witchery!

  • Anyone who tries to harness energy to bend the laws of nature and/or the supernatural to their benefit or the benefit of others--hopefully without harming others.

  • "What is a Witch?"...ME!!!

    An Individual (male or female) that can connect/harness/use in and outer (surrounding) elements/energy.
    And individual who uses herbs/natural resources for the practice of Witchcraft.
    A Witch is a male or female (no difference except in ways of practice), can be young, old or middle aged...
    Red,black,blonde, brown hair/eyes... can be short or tall...

    And a Witch could be your neighbor or your child's teacher or the dr you just seen the other day...
    But as many Witch or not may believe in not hurting/harming anyone or thing, Witches hold themselves
    higher on the Karmic law and the Harm None Rule than most ppl...

  • A witch is a person who uses their personal energy and the energy of nature to help aid them in spell craft. We use herbs, stones, crystals, feathers....anything Mother Earth gives us to help clear obsticles so we can see solutions and follow the path it makes.

  • Me!! One who feels at home with the Earth in all Her splendor. A witch is one to have more respect than most others for the Earth. A witch is able to understand the teachings of the ancient and arcane beliefs. A witch believes that they are the master of their own fate and they don't always leave it up to the Sisters to weave their lives.
