White Magick vs Black Magick  

Posted in ,

If I am asked ONE MORE TIME, "do you use white magick or black magick?" I just may scream! Personally I don't believe there are 2 kinds of magick. It's just magick.

I am not a 'white witch' or a 'black witch'. I'm a Witch. I believe in intent. If the intent is pure then great, if it's not, then be prepared to deal with the consequences in this life or the next.

I believe in personal responsibility - when I sit down to do spellwork I need to make a conscious decision as to what path to take and if I decide that my intent is going to take on a darker side then I must be willing to accept responsibility for that and be ready to deal with the backlash.

I'd love some thoughts on this. What do you believe?

I agree wholeheartedly. I just heard someone say "I'm a White Witch" and I actually cringed. I feel that if someone declares they don't practice "black magic" they are only a "white witch" what they are is extremely closed off to the cycles and power of being a Witch. They are not a witch but merely a new age groupie. :-P

Oh it is very annoying and I agree with you - those who are like that are closed off to the cycles and power of being a Witch.

Well, I suppose it's the same ignorance when "Glinda the good" ;) asked a certain young girl, "Are you a good witch or a bad witch?" and what did Dorothy say, "Why, I'm not a witch at all..." I say, if people are so quick to label as "dark or white, good vs. evil" there's nothing we can do, except know who we are and stand tall.

Totally agree -- I don't ask them: do you practice White Christianity or Black Christianity? Are you a Good Jew or a Bad Jew. Are you a Good Human or a Bad Human? Oy!

Hey everyone - sure seems we all feel the same way! GreenWheel - you made a GREAT point and one I forgot to mention! "White Christianity or Black Christianity? Are you a Good Jew or a Bad Jew"

I think the comment about the White Christian or Black Christian is perfect! Why do there need to be distinctions with Paganism? Personally, when people ask, I answer that I'm a Green Witch. My faith is built around nature and all of its beautiful grey areas so that's the colour I most associate with :D
