How do I become a witch?

The word witch is a modification of the Old High German word Hagazussa (fence rider) and indicates a being who rides on the fence, walks between the worlds, i.e. with one leg firmly in real life and the other in the spiritual and mystical realm is rooted.
Some witches are born into a witch family, in which belief but also traditions, customs and knowledge, e.g. from grandmother to mother, daughter or granddaughter, are passed on.
Others find their way after a long search because they are or were aware that something is missing in their life or belief. These people have to fight hard for their knowledge, because you are not so easy to be a witch, you become a witch ...
Only since the Internet has existed have people who were not born in a witch family or who have a certain relationship with one, so numerous opportunities to obtain information on this topic, knowledge about the subject of witchcraft and belief gain…

Nobody is a witch just because he / she thinks you just have to wave a magic wand and tap a few cool sayings and what you want will happen ... Or because you happen to have one or the other gift such as clairvoyance , Empathy or healing powers ...
First and foremost, to be a witch means to learn all your life ... To be a witch also means to believe. To believe in nature, the goddesses / gods of our ancestors, to follow the old customs, to master the old knowledge of the connections, it also means to take responsibility for oneself, for one's surroundings, for nature, for one's fellow human beings.
If you want to be a witch, you should be in balance with yourself, know where your inner center is. First get to know yourself, learn to control yourself and your body, this includes breathing techniques and meditation.
If you want to be a witch, find out if you believe in the ancient path as we call it, nature, the goddess and the horned. Strengthen that belief.
Get to know the connections that lead to the whole, ie acquire a solid basic knowledge in all areas of magic ... I know, not everyone likes herbs, someone else may not know what to do with runes, and not everyone has to like everything , but a certain basic knowledge about the elements and how to draw a protective circle, for example, should already be available ...

It is NOT important which name you choose, no matter how great it sounds ...
How you dress is NOT essential, except for important rituals maybe ...
It is ABSOLUTELY NOT important whether your friends think what you think is cool ...

The only important thing is whether you believe that the old path and everything related to it is right for YOU and YOUR life.
