The term “witchcraft” brings to mind a distorted image of black or dark magic being performed with a cauldron of boiling liquid spurting hot drops at you, a human skull by its side and a witch evoking sparks from her wand and such other things. All that is simply hogwash.
You would be pleasantly surprised to know that witchcraft developed from a neo pagan religion of Wicca which is a very peaceful and an earth-based religion that reveres nature and considers all of nature’s creations divine and strives to protect nature from all harm. The practitioners of the Wiccan religion are known as witches. Wicca is a religion just like any other religion that we practice today such as Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism to name a few. Even they have their set of beliefs and rituals and worship their Gods. Magic is not the whole and sole of this religion, just a part of it. That is why not all wiccans are witches. But, for them, magic is nothing of a supernatural stature; it is a way of life for them.
