Who doesn’t want to know the secret behind magic and spells? But, what if you find something that is nothing but “magic.” You may won’t believe, but there are some who claim to experience true magic; a magic which is beyond time and science. One of such forms of magic is “Wicca.”
Wicca is actually a pagan religion, which is based on diverse ancient pagan religious theories for its ritual practice. It is primarily and traditionally centered on worshipping Horned God, Moon Goddess and the concept of gender polarity. They have partial faith of spirits and demons, and believe in the nature’s energy. People following Wicca culture,, work with natural energies to help, heal and improve lives of the people or the surrounding. Though Wiccans claim to pose powers, they are strictly against its use to harm other or any living being. They further believe that “whatever we do, gets tripled and comes back to us,” which means an evil deed or wrong action will make you suffer three times more than the deed.
In Wiccan culture, the name “witch” is used for the person, who loves nature and uses spells to bring positive changes in people’s lives. He/she uses healing herbs and believes that God is present in every man and woman. They do not act as the descendants of Satan of follow its evil rules. Person or anyone who works with energy or magic to help or save lives is a witch in itself, but a person, who makes wrong use of the energy, loses the right to be called a “Wiccan.”
There may be many misconceptions about Wicca religion. Most of the times, the Pagans are considered to be Anti-Christ and lack moral or ethics. Wiccans clear this myth by saying that “We acknowledge all the deities, who have been worshiped since thousands of years and work in harmony with the nature. We belong to the Pre-Christian religion, not Anti-Christian.”
Wicca religion do not support animal killing or sacrifice and believe in three major components of life: magic- enlightenment and spirituality. They spell “magic” as “magick” to differentiate it from the stage magician, which includes healing, spell-casting, psychic development and divination. Teenagers and many adults often get attracted by their mysterious attire and jewelry and get admitted to a center or any place to learn the Wiccan magic, completely unaware of its actual motto and knowledge.
In said in few words, Wicca is not a cult, but a religion that believes in God, his powers and his creations. They do not do seminars or gathering to increase followers, neither they pressurize or influence anyone’s thoughts to follow the religion. They simply believe that they can make establish contact with the divine and his angles through using their skills and powers for good cause.
