How to Become a Witch:
So many people have asked me this question. How to be a witch? What makes a witch? Maybe you have come here with some false assumptions on witchcraft. Maybe to you it is an array of tricks, a way to be dark and moody, a way to make your parents mad, or a way to get a boy to kiss you. Hopefully you are interested in the craft, and whether you consider yourself pagan, wiccan or a solitary witch who practices witchcraft and hopefully this will give you some accurate and understandable information on it all. Witchcraft is not evil and really should be taken seriously. This is a religion just like any other it takes some research, knowledge and study. It should be taken seriously and not as a preteen joke.
Before embarking on your pagan journey it is important to be well versed in the craft. Not an expert, but at least have a general understanding of the basics of Wicca, and a healthy respect for your mind, body, soul, the universe, and the power you posses in it.
It is important to be mentally, physically and emotionally healthy and as all of these things have an important role to play in your witchcraft success.
You can teach yourself how to be a witch (solitary witch) or learn with a coven or a group of people. Any way is fine. A lot of us are not luck enough to have people in our lives showing us the craft of old, so we do the best we can and learn the best we can by finding pagan communities online and off.
♦The best way to teach yourself how to be a witch is to read as much information you can. Use the search on the website to find just about anything you can imagine on the subject of witchcraft.
♠Ask others questions about witchcraft. Wondering how to be a witch? Reach out to other witches and ask them for some information if you ever get stuck or need additional guidance.
♣Practice the craft. Information is wonderful but actually doing magick and spell work is the best way to become a witch. You need to write spells, study nature, learn about the esbats, and sabbats but you can’t be a witch without doing magick.
♥Learn and grow in the craft. This journey is a wonderful experience that really can enlighten you and make you a better, stronger person than who you are now. Have fun and enjoy the wonderful things the earth has to offer you.

Sometimes my spells work and sometimes they don’t work at all.
I am really shocked at how often this seems to pop up in conversation (follow me on twitter @BallisticJW), this question has been answered millions of times but people still ask me about this almost daily. You would never go to your first piano lesson or ballet lesson and expect it all to be done perfectly and achieve perfect results instantly. You would expect to practice and learn the techniques to make your performance better. Magick is no different in this sense. You will have a spell turn out perfectly and you will have a spell that does not turn out perfectly. You should always keep a spell journal so you might be able to troubleshoot your witchcraft spells. Practice makes perfect in all things including your journey to know how to be a witch.
I think negative spirits are trying to contact me or become my spirit guide.
Just like in the physical world, you are never under any obligation to converse or entertain spirits who give you negative vibes, feelings or emotions. The universe will not force a negative guide on you. You don’t have a obligation or duty to communicate with negative spirits. Some people assume they are mediums, or it is their job to help this negative spirit, absolutely untrue. You don’t have to be in service to anyone. You are not put on this earth to be torture by some evil entity or negative force. There is no reason for you to put up with negative energies whether from a physical person or a spiritual energy. If you are having a problem with negative spirits then consider this “Like attract Like” the types of people you attract is similar to the types of spirits you will attract. They are attracted to you for a reason, bringing more positivity, happiness, peace, and joy will help you attract friends and spirits of the like. Learning how to be a witch requires such a strong mind, it will bring you much joy if you are content within yourself. If you are attracting negative energies then work on your own spiritual hygiene, aura cleansings and purification will help.
(If you have some more intense negative energies and you feel they are attacking you mentally and emotionally then seeking someone out to speak with, like a counselor, therapists or psychiatrist may be something you need to look into. I don’t deny that we communicate with spirits on a daily basis, but if it is harming you or making you mentally unstable then help may be needed.)
What kind of Witch should I be?
There are many different types of Wiccans, Pagans, Witches, etc. They follow different rules depending on the denomination. There exists Gardenarians, Celtics, Sumerians, Egyptians, and whole lot of others. I think it is important to be called on to the path you walk. Make sure you have the strength to learn, seek and see the truth. I am not one to pass judgment on any of the denominations. I just would want you to know and have the strength to retain yourself on your path in learning how to be a witch. There are always people out there who will try to control you, or get money from you, or even ask you for sexual favors, these are not the people you want to associate yourself with and these people aren’t accurate representatives of the craft. I always encourage you to use your mind, common sense will usually steer you in the right direction. Be on the lookout for spiritual nonsense. Get well grounded in the basics of the craft, your own magickal abilities and knowledge and the right coven, group or guides will come your way. This is how you will be a witch for real
