A Common Misconception About Those Of Us That Are Witches

The Myth of Witches


Over the years of being classified a "witch" due to my Pagan beliefs and being a High Priest in a coven, I have gotten a ton of requests about myself performing magic and/or spells for other people.

First of all, we witches don't run around advertising to do spells and magic for others.  Those that you see that do so, well, in this author's opinion, they are hustlers and con artists, that are out to play with people's emotions and money.

Upon some seekers who may reach out to me, if they are sincere and realize what all is encompassed in helping them reach a goal through magic or spell work, then I may consider their request. Not for a set fee, or any fee.  All such requests are open for donations only if one feels obliged to offer such.

Now to the misconeption.  Many people, thanks to the media, think that we witches live by magic, spellwork and ritual first in all that we do.  That is incorrect.  As a last resort, I turn to magic, spells or ritual to help in aiding the results of something I may dealing with. 

We do not lived "Charmed" lives as the television show of that name professes we may.  Nor, for those of you who remember, do we live the lives of Samantha in the series "Bewitched."  Basically, we live normal lives. We certainly don't get up in the morning, planning our whole day, based upon the art of witchcraft. (No, we DO NOT look like the person in the image I am including!).

There is a second misconception as well. I know, I only have "A" in the title, however, the other is just as important from my perspective. Witches can be female or male.  A "warlock" is NOT a male witch.  Any who may be curious can do a Google search and find a reputable source to find what a warlock really is.
