It is quite surprising that Witchcraft continues to be considered as an evil deed, even in this modern world. It is also believed that people practicing this faith worship either the underworld or the devil. However, this is the farthest one can get from the truth. Just like any other aspect of life, a few bad points can be present almost anywhere. But that does not mean that one should shun the entire faith as an evil path.
In totality, Witchcraft is an extremely fun and gentle faith. One will never come across any practitioners of this faith making efforts to convert you to Wicca. They are content in going about their rituals in their own unique ways. If any one wishes to join the practice, they are not judged in any manner and are welcomed warmly. Besides this, one is not forced to discard one’s previous beliefs to carry out this faith. You can take your time and make up your mind. Also, this faith can be worked upon at one’s own home; there is no need to join a coven.
The practice of witchcraft is based on Nature and completely correlates with it. It does not involve any black magic. It is true that magic is involved, but this is the magic of the universe. It strongly believes that no plant, animal or human must be harmed in the process of the rituals.
The reality is totally contradictory to what one watches in the movies. In reality, witches don’t fly on brooms or change their form. They cannot resurrect the dead. An inverted pentagram is not witchcraft’s symbol. It is quite sad that people believe everything that they watch in movies. In fact, the symbol of witches is an upright pentagram in which each edge represents an element of nature, that is, water, fire, wind, earth and yourself.
An ignorant person can be considered to be dangerous for himself as well as for everyone around him. So before criticizing another faith, it is important that one does proper research. After they do that, they can voice their opinion. There is a large number of websites dedicated to the subject of witchcraft. So it is better if one reads up and gets information before judging a religion or faith.
