There are many myths about witches out there. One of the most prevalent myths is that witches must be born a witch, or have some innate power. I’m here to tell you that isn’t true.
The simple fact is that anyone can become a witch.
Witchcraft is a craft, a skill that is learned over time through practice and study. It’s like woodworking or painting. No one is born knowing how to build a house, but with practice and training anyone can do it.
Of course, not everyone finds it easy to practice witchcraft, just like not everyone wants to be a carpenter. Some people have no interest, some find it boring, and some people just don’t want to or can’t believe in magic. Those people will have a hard time practicing witchcraft.
That’s the personality element. Not everyone has the personality to be a witch. Someone that is a militant atheist that thinks any spiritual beliefs are stupid can never be a witch until they soften their views.
Being spiritual is an essential part of being a witch. I don’t mean that you need to believe in a deity or be religious, but if you don’t believe in some kind of energy or spark within us, how can you use that energy to change the world? You need to be able to believe in some kind of energy within all people and in the universe that can be changed by your magic.
Being too skeptical will stop your magic from working, no matter how good the spell you perform is. So if you can’t believe in magic, you’re better off not trying to become a witch.
Similarly, if you are a nervous person that overthinks the consequences of their every action, you may be better off not trying to practice witchcraft. Negative thinking can cause you to curse yourself, leading to disastrous results. Better safe than sorry!
But can anyone become a witch? The answer is yes. We are all born with a divine spark or energy within us, and that energy can be manipulated or be used to change the energies around us. Witchcraft is about tapping into that energy to control ourselves and our fates.
