Witchcraft is a word that, for some, may inspire fantastical images of women flying through the night sky on broomsticks and shooting sparks out of glimmering wands. Others mistakenly associate those who practice witchcraft with the dark arts - believing witches go around hexing people or practicing black magic to cause trouble for people they dislike. Of course, none of these notions is accurate - they are rooted in old fairy tales, Hollywood movies, and stubborn, persistent misconceptions that still cloud many people's understanding of this timeless and magical way of life.
The truth is, witchcraft is not fantasy and is not inherently malicious. I ask you to leave these misconceptions at the door. When you've done this, you're ready to embark on a journey to understand the truth about witchcraft - that it is a vibrant, nature-based spiritual practice that is alive and well in our modern times, just as it has been for longer than we've been recording history. Rather than "hexing", witches work their craft to enhance their lives and the lives of those around them. If you feel like your life is missing something, a little bit of magic could be all you need to give you a push in the right direction.
