Riahgirl, you don't just "go get" powers of any kind. It may be hard for a child of the Internet Age to believe, you actually have to learn some things outside of the computer. GO TO A BOOKSTORE or a LIBRARY. No, I did not say go to Amazon.com, actually walk into a building that houses books, and "gain" a book on Wicca, Paganism, or Spirituality, whatever strikes your fancy. Although I think Tim was a bit harsh, he's somewhat right... the kind of powers you are looking for don't exist. Take some time to learn about your own natural power before looking for extras.
From my experience people who want to be witches, warlocks, have "superhuman" powers, be an angel etc are some of my favorite people. I find them so interesting, some how they have managed to keep a portion of the innocence of their youth that many... read more
if you do not have the gift it is unlikely you will find it. if you open doors to the spiritual realm in your life, be prepared for the consequences of your actions. if your looking for the left hand path look up Crowley learn to dream walk, and walking with the dead, get the grimiores and study them. wicca is fluff. Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law. but don't say i didn't warn you.
Becoming a witch or 'gaining witch powers' as you say, is not as easy as uploading software into your brain as they did in the Matrix and voila, you're a witch.
When you want to learn anything, the best approach is to study. Study whatever folk practices you can get your hands on - European folk magic, Siberian shamanism, modern and even ancient religion. Reading books is all well and good but after a while the only way to learn witchcraft is to live and practice it. Just as astrology was in the middle ages a precursor to the sciences from which it emerged, practicing magic is trial and error. Its about making mistakes (and you will) and learning from them (there's no guarantee that will happen though).
But you need to know that everything comes at a price. If you decide to walk down that road, you had better be able to deal physically, psychologically, and emotionally with the repercussions of your actions.
I see that several people have written to you about how they think you can achieve your goal, but, I have questions for you.
What do you think a witches powers are?
Why do you need this?
*sigh* Ok, I'm going to be nicer than the Tim dude, but I gotta tell ya, that made me wanna *headdesk*. But hey, we all started out as newbies at some point, so bear with me, ok?
You don't GAIN "witch powers". You're born with them. And by that I mean EVERYONE is born with them; it just depends on whether or not you're going to choose to develop them or not.
But if you're wanting "witch powers" so you can make like "The Charmed Ones" and go zapping demons, you might as well just hang it up. It doesn't work that way. You can't shoot sparks out your fingers, and looking at the chair and saying "Wingardum Leviosa!" and expecting it to rise up is just going to get you funny looks if anyone's around.
In other words, delete from your brain everything that Hollywood shows to be "real" witchcraft. About as close as it's gotten was a few things from the movie "The Craft" and even then it was just a huge lesson in what NOT to do. The witch who runs the store that the girls go to, who tried to teach the red-head some of the ethics and the Rule of Three was actually accurate. Other than that, nah.
And speaking of ethics, are you just wanting to learn magick so you can cast love spells to make a specific person fall in love with you or are you actually wanting to learn the ethics of magick? 'Cause if you're just another dabbler, then the hell with it. Dabblers don't do anything but make trouble. They're like toddlers with a loaded gun that ends up shooting everyone else and then themselves because they don't know how the hell to handle something like that.
Magick should NEVER be used to manipulate, cause harm, or ANYTHING negative. If you do a spell for someone else, you ALWAYS get their permission first, because you NEVER do any magick on someone without their consent. Manipulation is a HUGE no no.
You wanna start learning about Witchcraft? Start with Silver RavenWolf "To Ride A Silver Broomstick" and Ellen Dugan "Elements of Witchcraft: Natural Magick for Teens". Also "Teen Witch" by Silver RavenWolf is a good one. They're great books for beginners.
And just know that if you're serious about it, it takes WORK. Anything worthwhile takes work. If you expect to accomplish anything, you're going to have to work your butt off.
These powers are within. It takes true study and belief for them to come through. A word of advice- do not be commercial and do not advertise too much! a private journey
Well first, you must subject your body to a a powerful transformation. You see, in order to be a witch, it is essential that you be made of wood. Without this incredibly important prerequisite, you can never gain the powers of a witch.
p.s. if you have any sense of humor you should know exactly where this information is coming from. I'm going to assume that you are not posing this as a serious question unlike everyone else that answered that seems to believe you are simply a misguided and somewhat intellectually bereft teenager. Wait...all teenagers are misguided and intellectually bereft...Well anyway, have a nice day. Turn someone into a toad for me will you.
okay...i have been a practicing witch for years. let me tell you something. these are NOT the things you see on tv. you are not
going to fly or become invisible. witches do NOT have "powers"s
this is something that is in all of us. these are things controlled by the power of the mind and the power of your faith. the tools used are to help with the concentration of the process. now to let someone tell you witches dont exist...dont listen to that crap. that is pretty much like saying that there is no such thing as catholics....
Hey, I am in the same situation as you. But being an "apprentice" witch means that you need to STUDY! *laugh* okay but seriously study helps alot. Lets you connect better with the elements. I , also, suggest some mediations and find a local coven and get and elder in the coven to help you!
First : start not to loose energy for rutine things and learn how to safe your energy!
Second: Try to think positevly
Third: You will sense the third spet provided that you have passed through the first two! Listen to your soul!
The First Rule of the Wiccan Path : You do learn to become a witch, you are born one. Don't be in such a rush to attain power, before you have a chance to learn the power of your own inner wisdom. It will come if you allow yourself to grow and learn naturally. Trust in yourself, and you will know thyself.
Ok. So having read some of.the responces here I wanted to pound my head against a wall for an hour. REAL witches do have powers. Wiccans are mostly what real witches call.witch practitioners. They have the knowledge but not the power. Wicca is nothing but the bastard child of real paganism and christianity and is scorned by real practicioners oc the old ways. You can not "gain" a witches powers. You are either born with them or you are not. Its just like hair color. Witch practitioners love to say that everyone is born with the ability but its like a red head going to the salon to become a blonde, false and fake. This is not to say the religions of the old ways are wrong. Not everyone that followed them was given the task of performing magic. The ones that were became the priests and priestesses. Do not be fooled by Hollywood or these fake wanna be witches. If you have the power it will manifest. If not, it won't. Good luck to you.
It's simply energies. Beware of advice you get from those who use the art of witchcraft as a faith for they can only see the energies around them. That's petty gypsy play used for mind reading and tricks. Only some can manipulate the energies around us. Once you learn to see and feel these energies can you tune them out? It's hard to focus on what someone is saying with a strobe light in your face. This same concept applies to opening up to a 6th sense. Learn to see these energies with any gypsy or pagan wannabes. If you move them it'll be felt by other true witches and we'll find you.
