Living a Magickal Life
The witch's world is rich and rewarding. Now that witchcraft has “come out of the broom closet” and people around the world are sharing their knowledge openly, the field is growing ever richer. Everyone's experiences contribute to the development of the whole. Wicca and witchcraft are not static ideologies; they are constantly evolving, just like the women and men who are part of these wisdom traditions.
Once you put on the witch's mantle, your entire perspective will change. You'll never again see the world as you did before. You realize that nothing happens in a vacuum and nothing happens accidentally. You become aware of your connection with all life on earth and with the universe, the physical and the nonphysical. You know that your thoughts create your reality, and everything you think, feel, and do affects the whole.
As Donald Michael Kraig writes in his book Modern Magick, “Magick is not something you do, magick is something you are.” For a witch, magick is a way of life, a way of thinking, feeling, and interacting in the visible world as well as the unseen one.
Being a witch means living consciously, in harmony with the rest of existence to the best of your ability. It also involves using your will responsibly to produce the results you desire for yourself and others. According to Aleister Crowley, “Every intentional act is a magical act.” As you move through the world as a witch, you'll notice that everyone you meet is your teacher, and you in turn teach something to everyone you meet.
Magick transforms you. Magick exists everywhere, all the time. You are part of the magick.
