Witches - Are They Real
Yep, We Are Real
Most people will keep away from this blog simply out of fear. The old crone might put a curse on them or worse.. I have lost friends because of my beliefs. I wonder if even one of them took the time to educate themselves or if they simply decided to believe the rhetoric. The rhetoric that women hating men in the "Church" used to kill thousands. In the name of God.
In The Name of God
Long ago, Wise Ones (witches) lived on the outskirts of small towns/villages. These were usually women who tended childbirth, took care of the dead and administered such medicine that could be found in nature. They were the ones who settled disputes. They were the ones with the power. Power the Church wanted and had to have in order to rule. It is well known that Peter and Paul hated Mary Magdalene and all other women. Mary Magdalene was Jesus' favorite disciple. When Jesus left this earth He told His people to preach the truth. There were many who followed his teachings, not just those in the Bible. He did not call it Christianity, He was Jewish, who do believe in the mystical. He was trained in healing arts and all areas of the Jewish faith. He was probably black having been born in Egypt and I don't think He ever referred to Himself as King. He also had a nasty, wicked temper and forsook his family.
It is known that St. Paul and St. Peter made it to Rome and from them grew the Vatican. Good old Emporer Constantine set it all in motion. He brought all bishops and deacons to Nicea to discuss whether Jesus was one in the same as God and other organizational issues of the Church. No women were or have ever been of any substance in the church. The nuns simply do the down and dirty work. The great men live in the Vatican...Sell some of that stuff and take care of all the Somalians, isn't that what it is supposed to be about?
Pagan simply means peasant. Just poor farmers and the like. In order to bring the pagans into the mix and divesting them of hard earned money for the good of the Church and God they had to make the Christian holidays fall on pagan ones. They had to use pagan symbols, like the Christmas tree and the yule log to bring them along. They had to take the power of the wise ones. They had to make the people afraid. Christianity was already under way in Rome. No other religion was allowed. Even the God Ra was left out. Most then worshipped him as the God of the Sun. Polytheism was no longer. One God and One God only. The God of the Church.
Back to the Witch
Since witches were mostly women and pagan (peasant) but did wield the most power people were warned against us. They were told we would cast evil spells and slept with the devil. These are the same people who had been healing and birthing and taking care of the dead. The wise ones were the enemy. The ones who devoted their lives to study in order to help were the ones that were killed in the name of God.
Witches and God
Witches believe in God, probably more than most. We do believe in a male/female deity. Nature is God. Nature has given us all we need yet it is destroyed day by day. We are being killed though money and power just as we were deprived of the right to live as we wish with the advent of the Church. Money is the root of all evil. (Biblical) Not witches. BTW: Witches ARE NOT Satanists and I have yet to meet the devil, much less have slept with him.
Blame Has No Place on a Witches Shoulders
I have been researching the net and have found that people need to blame someone on the earth they can see and hate for their fate. Sometimes it is a witch in some form or other that gets the job. Santeria is a hateful religion that practices in some terrible ways. Satanism is another. In my humble opinion these people have psychological issues. I do believe in their power since we are all energy (another blog). But in life sometimes things just happen. Be good to your guardian angel (they are in the Bible). You will need that Dude or Dudette. Thank them and the God and Goddess often. Surround yourself with their white light and pray (meditate) on all you have been given and enjoy their protection. Wicca is not far from the biblical belief that we are here to help our fellow man and live up to the God/dess' wishes.
Wicca v Christianity
The church has its amulets and tools of worship. Let's say the blood and body of Christ. (You know, I have to wonder what He thinks about all of this, after all He turned water into wine and nobody called Him names). The cross is another, yet pagan symbol that is worn and kissed and adored. Let a witch bring out a candle or a stone for it's God given power and the sky falls down.. What I am saying is we all have "things" we touch (the rosary) or feel (the love of God/dess). Witches simply are in tune with nature and the gifts that are and can only be God/dess given. Self respecting wiccans will not hurt you, the motto of the witch is "Do as you will yet harm none.." Besides, it will come back on us three-fold. Religion has caused more wars and destruction than anything on this planet. But it is revered and God is on "both" sides. Yet, the trees grow and babies are born and people die. The world keeps turning and God/dess keep giving.
The true God given power is not in our wars and politics and money it is in ourselves wherein God/dess dwell. Saith the Wiccan.
