Welcome to the Witchipedia's "Ask the Witches" section. Here you will find a number of questions that have been asked by many people regarding magick, witchcraft, the occult and Pagan and Heathen religions. If you have an answer to their questions, you are encouraged to share it by clicking first on the question's link, and then after reading the entire question, scroll to the bottom and click on the "add a comment" link to provide your answer.
Please ask your question by entering it into the box below and clicking "Ask this question". Keep it brief, you will be able to add more details in a moment. Your question will then be put to the community!
Don't be shy. Chances are, someone else is wondering the same thing.
Here's a few suggestions for the best experience for all.
- Please keep your questions on topic. (The topic is witchcraft and magick.)
- Please do not ask questions along the lines of "Is there a spell for this?" The answer is yes; there is a spell for just about every purpose. (Note: You can contact Dawn directly for help with this.)
- Please do not ask overly personal questions or include the real names of other people in your questions. These will be deleted without further consideration. If your question is personal, you may wish to contact Dawn directly.
- This is not the free psychic network. Please do not ask for predictions or readings. Questions of this nature will be deleted.
- Please search keywords related to your topic on the Witchipedia (search is in the upper right hand corner), peruse our glossary and look through other questions on this page before asking your question. It may have already been answered.
- This is not the classified section. We don't have a classified section. I suggest http://www.witchvox.com . If you are looking to connect with folks, that's the place to go.
- Please restrict your punctuation to the grammatically required minimum. The number of exclamation points and question marks you can manage to fit into a title or paragraph is not proportional to the speed or accuracy of our response.
If you require personal assistance, you may speak with Dawn Black directly, subject to her availability and a small fee for her time.
How can I tell if I'm really a witch? I have some special abilities and I feel truly alive when I am in nature. I think I may be born into witchcraft, but I'm not sure.
I live in New Zealand and the date given for Imbolc, a Winter festival, falls in the middle of my summer. Are the dates different here?
I've heard how salt rings can trap spirits, and wards get rid of negative energy, but specifically, what materials, if any, are meant for weakening and/or disempowering magical entities? I'm writing a book, so I could use this for inspirational reference.
How do I learn to see Auras, I have tried and tried. What am I doing wrong. Thank You and have a blessed evening
this witch is a friend of her family and she really likes her and she says that my friends make the ghost angry she said that the ghost doesnt like teenagers my friends are in thier 20s is it true or possible?
In one day i was at a jewerly repairman because some of my jewerly where broken and some of them i gave to him and he gaved me some rings that he had on a napkin. I noticed an evil eye, but i already achived the rings, and my mother observed the eye and said that if he can give me that one for free…for my surprise he agreed.
When i got home i felt so anxious and angry, and after that someone told me that is because of the eye…i really liked that eye because it looked different, not like those usual evil eyes…so when i felt the moment to trow it away, i went on the street and i saw a homeless woman and she asked for money and i put it on her hand…i don't know if it was just my mind that played things on me, but now i know i don't have it, and i'll never gonna see it again.
I was thinking of doing several spells with a group of people at our next gathering. Would it be better to do them separately?
I think it would be so awesome if I could so ,umm, do You think that is possible and if You do, tell me how?
It is like the nature is reacting on me and some things a dream or think about happends. I am kinda scared about it.
Do you think this is possible?
Or I just have to give up?
That is my dream…to be able to control fire :D
Can I use dried plants/flowers for all spells, or do I have to use fresh? Or does it depend on the spell?
I have been researching this concern, before attempting a spell that requires any time of plant, in case the possible outcomes can be different.
I've found a few spells I would like to try on the Internet and in a few books. I was reading somewhere that using someone else's spells requires you to share energy and their intentions mixed with yours. Is this true? Would it be pointless to use someone else's pre-made spell?
It's a rune that keeps recurring in my dreams. It looks like a capital T with a < in the middle. It is often carved, but I have seen it written in blood at times too. Please help put this question to rest!
What is the Theta State of mind, and are there any good articles to read about it?
I have never met my mother and when I finally found her she had passed. I feel her, I can summon her presence but not messages or sounds. Should I go to a medium? Or is there a better way to communicate with passed souls?
How can we improve this section?
