No magic

That witchcraft is magic is probably the most widely accepted untruth around. Shadow witches do not do/perform/create magic.

Magic is the use of the Will to bend reality, energy, or however you like to put it. Yes, a simplistic explanation, but enough for our purpose.

There is no doubt that you have heard of the concept of sin. In Judeo-Christian terms this is an evil or wrong doing. Basically, it is morally defined.

In Canaanite, Phoenician and brujeria terms, the closest we come to is imbalance. We do not believe in moral sin that is against the will of a god. The idea of balance and harmony is very popular in neo-paganism and is very, very loosely based on traditional witchery.

The ‘sin’ is to create imbalance of the natural order of things. You can probably see how this is what magic does – bend the natural order of things. We do not, not do magic because it is wrong. No, we do not do it because it is simply our way due to our deeper perception of the world as it is – reality.

So what is witchcraft, or do witches do? I hear you ask….. *cackle*
