Understanding Witchcraft Techniques

 In various anthropological, historical, mythological and religious contexts, term witchcraft is used to describe certain kinds of magical or supernatural powers.  Using the power in order to inflict damage or harm to the other people or their property is also referred to as witchcraft.  Wicca is the old English term for the witch, and was used when the witchcraft was practiced as a religion.   Witchcraft is the religion that respects Mother Nature, and is neither completely negative nor totally positive.

 Spells are the series of prayers and rituals that are used by Wiccans, and are performed in the witchcraft to seek divine help in various aspects of life.  Wiccan Rede is a witchcraft code of conduct, and all the spells used to dominate, manipulate or control any person are forbidden.  In Witchcraft, the spells can be adapted or changed to suit the personality and wishes of Wiccan.   While performing the witchcraft and casting a spell, the witch takes on the responsibility on to herself.
