Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 Witchcraft is the use of magic to achieve a desired outcome. Magic is a neutral force, and witchcraft is a neutral practice. While there is no bloodline you must be a part of, witches and magic practitioners draw their energies from nature. #2 The modern belief and practice of magic in Western culture stems from Kemetic Greco-Roman, Celtic, and Judeo-Christian beliefs and religion. The root word for magic is Greek, and it comes from the ancient Greek word magoi, which referred to a Median tribe in Persia and their religion, Zoroastrianism. #3 Witchcraft is the intentional use of magic while upholding tradition and folklore. Tradition and folklore are different for every individual because they can be based on location, lived experience, and ancestry. The practice of magic involves offering yourself a natural focal point to engage with your surroundings and an intentional vision of your life. #4 The mundane is unavoidable, and because of that, manifestation is more than just a mystic practice. It has roots in reality, in the way we live. Gardening is an example of literal manifestaion. Whatever you'd like to manifest requires intent and care, like plants in a garden.
