Intro to wicca
When someone first hears the word witchcraft or witch, they think of someone who performs magic and rides around on a broomstick. 

For those of you who think that way, please read on so that I may help dispell the myth of witchcraft. Whatever you call it, Witchcraft, Wicca or "the Craft", (I prefer Wicca) it is a religion and personal belief. 

All religions are structured around a Deity (God). Wicca is no exception. We believe in a God and Goddess. They are equals, complimentary, neither is higher or more deserving of respect and they are omnipresent throughout the Universe. 

If you think Wicca is just magic, think again. Wicca and magic are not the same or one. Wicca is a religion that embraces magic. Magic is the projection of natural energies to produce a needed effect.

  Those who follow Wicca do not worship the Devil or believe in animal sacrifices. We do not wish to harm nature because we are one with nature. We are born from and will return to the earth. Therefore the core of Wicca is a union with nature. 

I hope that this dispells some of the rumors and mystery that surrounds Wicca and gives you a deeper understanding of it.
