Natural Witches

Dear Brother Ron

Is there such thing as a 'natural' witch? I ask this, because I have never practiced Wicca or spells in my life... however I've had numerous persons (strangers) come up to me and say I am a 'natural' witch. I have also had so called 'religious' persons in my family say that things that I have been able to do are not 'human' and only powers that the devil can give (idiots). Have you every had such occurrences occur to themselves as well?


Dear Darque

Actually, all real witches are "natural" witches. It just means you have the perception to be attuned to nature's forces. It is very similar to my ear for music. I can hear any song and recreate it within a few minutes. Obviously, not everybody can do that. Just as I have an ear for music, you have an ear for the Spirit. This is a good thing.

As far as your power coming from the devil, you might remind them that Jesus faced the same accusations:

Mat 9:32 As they went out, behold, they brought to him a dumb man possessed with a devil. Mat 9:33 And when the devil was cast out, the dumb spake: and the multitudes marvelled, saying, It was never so seen in Israel. Mat 9:34 But the Pharisees said, He casteth out devils through the prince of the devils.

Don't let it bother you. Your powers come from the same God your family worships. If you are a true witch (as opposed to a Satanist), you have no belief in Satan or dealings with him. Christians are always getting them confused but they are two different things entirely. A true witch will observe the Rule of Three. The Rule of Three (also threefold law or law of return) is a tenet of Wicca. claiming that whatever energy a person puts out into the world, be it positive or negative, will be returned to that person three times.

In other words, whatever good or evil you project to others will come back to you three times over. Who in their right mind would use their powers for evil knowing they would get three times as much evil thrown back at them? It's kind of like the Golden Rule with an assault rifle.

Hope this helps.

Best always
Brother Ron
