I want to become a Wiccan & study Witchcraft.
Yeah I get that Witchcraft & Wicca isn't about flying broomsticks and love spells etc., but I want to know what the real intent is of those who study and practice it.
Like, do you have an internal power after doing rituals, or making herbs etc., like you would if you opened your third eye?
Is it not just a mental trance your putting yourself in? And do witches/wiccans know this, or do they genuinely believe that it's the spirit world contacting them?

Wicca is the biggest hodgepodge of hokum I've ever come across.
I've met people with power. And they were not the wanna-be's that are the average "Wiccan".
i have to agree with this.

that depends on what you consider to be real for yourself? belief is one of the strongest things in the universe.

First off, I have been studying wicca a d paganism for a year now.
Is there proof? Well, I could ask you for proof of Christianity outside of the bible. It's all about what you connect with spiritually and what you believe on a personal level.
I don't believe it is an "occult" path. At least not for me. I would describe it more as esoteric than anything. To me, occult implies you're dealing with the paranormal. I'm sure some wiccans do, but most of them don't.
As far as intentions....for me it is more about going back to the basics. Being more in tune with nature and natural energies. It's also about personal responsibilities. You create your own destiny so to speak. Not god.
Although wiccan is more of a modern pathway, it is steeped in mythology and folklore.
You can pm me if you're interested. I don't have all the answers, but I could probably point you in the right direction.
MAGICK is the Science and Art of causing Change to occur in conformity with Will.*
* In one sense Magick may be said to be the name given to Science by the vulgar.
i thought the point was that "belief" was the most important thing. Guess you proved me wrong.

The "Necrinomicon" yeah you're a pro! Oh GAWD! That's funny, you get the cake!
Just fyi, that's Necronomicon and fiction based on Lovecraft. To distract the weak minded. But go ahead, you might also want to try Princess Lillifee
