Witchcraft is a time period that’s used to cowl a broad spectrum of beliefs. It’s usually wrongly thought that everybody who makes use of the time period witchcraft is into Black Magic or Satanism. This isn’t true!
Witchcraft itself has many ‘denominations’.
Wicca as an example is outlined by many as being the outdated pagan faith of Britain coming from an Anglo-Saxon phrase which means ‘the craft of the clever.’ Others say the unique phrase meant ‘depraved’. Wicca rejects the Christian God, preferring to personify the life power as female and male, recognized variously because the God and Goddess, Lord and Woman, the Horned God and the Silver Woman and so on. The feminine is at all times dominant as a Mom Earth idea witch supplies.
There exist two fundamental varieties of magic used as we speak in witchcraft and occult societies. These are Conventional Magic ( People Magic, wicca and so on ), and Ceremonial Magick ( Excessive Magick ).
In up to date tradition, occultists usually make reference to white and black magic. White magic is claimed to be the supply of energy for good or blessing. Whereas black magic is also known as the ability from demonic spirits that’s used to hurt or exert ones will and take away one other’s free will.
With few exceptions, these in Wicca would consider that they by no means get entangled with curses that might hurt individuals i.e. they’re by no means concerned with black magic.
It’s my very own private perception after years of examine and investigation and as a practitioner of Wicca, Voodoo and Black magic that this perception within the distinction between white and black magic is the creation of authors and Hollywood and barely really seems within the historical past of world magic.
Ask any white witch, who claims to apply white magic solely, if they might be capable to hex somebody who has upset them. The reply is doubtless sure, which leads properly to the query if a white witch practising white magic makes use of a supply of energy for good / blessing then how can they hex somebody? Hexing depends on evil spirits to execute one’s sadistic will, due to this fact black magic.
It’s my private opinion that there isn’t any main distinction between white magic and black magic with one sole exception, the intent with which the magic is solid. Magic solid with good intent turns into white, magic solid with unhealthy intent turns into black. The supply for each white and black magic is similar.
Whereas I agree that there are different minor variations i.e. within the rituals and so on between White and Black Witchcraft, the basis of the ability is similar?
Most arrive (like myself) on the Black arts by way of one of many many types of White Witchcraft. These in white witchcraft deny the God of the Bible and so their energy should come from one other supernatural ‘god’. As already defined the truth that this energy seems to do good is the ‘angel of sunshine’ syndrome, which has an evil energy at its root.
There isn’t a distinction between White and Black magic, besides within the self-deceit of the White magic practitioner. In custom, White magic is carried out for good functions, whereas black magic is used for self-gain, private energy, and evil functions. Is there anybody in existence who has undertake a course of examine or a job with out ego gratification and private energy as a aim
