There are many opinions about what it means to be a witch. Merriam-Webster defines her as a woman thought to have magic power or who practices it as part of a religion .
She could be a very unpleasant woman or credited with malignant supernatural powers. Most certainly she is practicing black witchcraft with the aid of a devil or familiar.
She is an ugly old woman. She is an alluring young girl with extreme beauty. And look out she is a practitioner of Wicca (which is about as white as it gets). Well now that seems to cover every woman I have ever met. So I guess according to the dictionary to be a woman is to be a witch.
Now I’d love to shout that from the rooftops
but there’s a problem.
It’s Not True!
What is true? While every woman has it in her to be an enchantress, she is not truly until she believes she has access to power and makes the conscious choice to use it. It is then she earns the label. But even then, it is only a label.
As witches we are no more than any other man or woman.
Or are we?
Our choice to take on a label like witch and to use such power makes us different from those who can’t even admit it exists.
The Witch is the one who can see and feel magic. Once she can she will use it, she is witch.
Yes every woman has the potential to be one and at some point in all our lives magic presents itself to us. The difference is, most look away and try to ignore it. But the witch pays attention, welcoming mystery power and wisdom into her life with an open heart.
