A witches true power

RE: A witches true power
Like all matters and the various aspects of the Paranormal, such as psychics; pre-cognition; Telekinesis; ghosts and demons, etc. I believe that probably about 95% of the claims on ANY of it are bogus. They are either products of flat-out fraud; or just simple ignorance or misunderstanding.

Some people claim it for attention; some for money; some to convince themselves they are more than just a tiny speck of matter spinning around an unfathomably-sized Universe on a pebble that is orbiting a ho-hum middle-aged star.

But, like most complex questions in life: there is no one easy, simple answer. In the field of psychology, we sometimes refer to the perfect medication for a particular mental disorder as a "silver bullet cure."

There is none of that here either. Sorry. LOL

I believe that, yeah, a very small cadre of people have the talent of psychic or paranormal ability. Some can indeed "cast spells" or foresee events happening. Some can meet a person and "see" their past, and also perhaps what lies ins store for them.

But these people (I like to call them "Clears") are few and far between.

There might be one or two on this entire forum. Maybe.

I think this ability is comparable to, say, a talented athlete or musician, or maybe artist. They have an innate skill; one that can sometimes be improved upon through hard work.

How do they do it? Cast spells? Hmm..I do not know, but I feel it would have to do with utilizing a specific part of the mind, a part we use to plan our everyday activities, or decipher a complex problem or math equation or balance our checkbooks, or what have you. (This is usually all done in the pre-frontal cortex, btw). And the amygdala of the Limbic System in mid-brain are, comnversely, the seats of our emotions.

(That's is, btw, overly-simplified for the sake of brevity and clarity here).

So yeah..anyway..some people have the ability to turn this thinking process "inside out" as it were, and they use it to apply to external rather than only internal events.

I dated a Witch once for a few weeks, several years ago. I saw her make flowers die, and bring dead ones back to life. (THat is if they were only recently killed: like within a couple hours.)

I saw her light candles and extinguish them from five feet away. And they were MY candles in my house so they weren't any sort of "trick" candles. When she did these things, I could feel a slight change in the ambient room temperature. Things seemed to heat up a couple degrees, and I would get a very faint "humming" in my ears.

I perceived this to be some sort of frequency vibrations, most likely on the quantum level, which she could "externalize" instead of just imagining doing it like you or I.

It was pretty cool. And totally baffling. I have only told a very few people of this, as I know most would not believe me. SO why waste the time. Hell, I would not believe you if you if you told me the same story. (Well, perhaps I would if I got to know someone well enough to know they were being honest; at least in what they THOUGHT they saw. LOL

RE: A witches true power
My experience has been that Wiccans are the "Jehovah's Witnesses" of the Magik World.

That is..they are always sure that they have the right answers! LOL.

Jesus H.Christ on a popsicle stick: didja ever try to tell one of those women anything? Useless.

They, I think, are also too involved and limited to White Magic. I like to call it "fluffy bunny magic."

They ignore the Dark Magic, I believe, at both their own peril, and are doing themselves a grave disservice as well. As it limits their so-called powers.

Never met a Wiccan I couldn't bring to her knees--actually I dated one for a couple months and brought her to her knees a LOT! LOL--by calling up even a low-level Demon. And I mean one of Master's pikers, like a Yellow Smudge.

But I reckon the world of magic has a place for Wiccans. And some of them are pretty decent folk.

RE: A witches true power
TA,
There are MANY people who identify as Wiccan, Just like MANY call themselves Christian, in either case FEW actually are of the group they claim.

I think the few and far between is a bit higher then you do. I feel alot of people have the potential to varied degrees just like with being Empathic. Maybe 10-15% will realize the potential, but because they are of varied talent most will never be much at all. Perhaps 1% maybe less will be able to really use it.

As for this forum there are more then one or two here who have realized at least some of their potential. The truth is seen by those who are similar.

RE: A witches true power
I have pagan beliefs, but I was raised as a spiritual Christian (meaning my mom never took me to church, but occasionally I would go with my granny and granddad, my mom prays and says taking care of your spirit is more important. I was also raised on superstitions.) It is possible to have faith in both worlds. Pagan is a vague, vast word and has many branches of beliefs in itself. One of my co-workers is pagan and she noticed I had beliefs in that area. She asked me if I'm a witch and what I call myself. I was uncomfortable, for one, because it is a work place. I just told her I don't call myself anything but pagan and that I have my own beliefs. I don't belong to a coven or any group, I just go about my life and have my faith. I don't do much of the bells and whistles stuff. I don't have the time or will for it. I just use it as inspiration in everyday life. I have read parts of the bible. I went to bible camp, unwillingly, and I did not like it. Everything was stuff down my throat. I was going to go into a rant, but will talk about this another time. Anyways, I have different views on Christianity. I don't take the bible too literally and I don't see the point in going to church.

"...and I did not like it. Everything was stuff down my throat."


Ahh...I see you have something in common with catholic altar boys!

Ouch. Sorry. Bad joke...couldn't resist.

But seriously....you are probably the most common type of Wiccan, I think.

Very few of them do the whole coven or Sabbat thing, and most simply use some of the Wiccan beliefs and practices to augment their spirituality.

After all, at it's core, I believe, Wicca IS merely a "nature-centered" philosophy. (I hesitate to call it a "religion.") A Wiccan is basically a Pantheist with a dose of fluffy bunny magic powder sprinkled on her.

I have found too that it differs not so much from most Native American religions.


Far be it from be to defend the christian church, but even though you say you cannot see the point in going, it should be noted here that many fine people are christians--especially they of the Ecumenical persuasion, and they do in fact glean some Spirituality from their respective churches.

RE: A witches true power
Traditional Wiccans are a force to be reckoned with. They may not curse you, but many of the older one's have a well-thought out retort for any attack you can throw at their religion. And although they, as a general rule, do not harm others, I've noticed that there is no public discouragement of ordeal work. Who knows what kind of stuff a mystery religion does behind closed doors?
