Reading books about Wicca will allow you to become competent in the basic elements of witchcraft and basic understanding of its foundations. You need to start to be curious about the earth, creation and the beauty of the sky and the solar system. You need to respect and be one with mother natural and all the amazing elements of the earth.
First Order of Action?
In your book of shadows, on page 1 at the top write down the question “Why do I Want to be a Witch?” and answer it. This book will be your private book of shadows, so it is important to be honest with yourself. You will refer back to this as you learn more about the craft. You will see how your reasons for becoming a witch have stayed the same or changed as you learn more about the craft and the crafts abilities.
Second Thing to Do
Write down in your book of shadows below your reason for becoming a witch the follow phrase. “I will always respect nature and the elements of witchcraft”. At time you will lose site of this, but it is very important to always remember this.
Things to Start to Learn
1. You must start to pay attention to the phases of the moon and your energy levels under each stage. Each moon phase will have a different energy level and your body will respond different to each moon. Your natural vibrations will also be affect by the moon. It is very important to be one with the moon and feel the changes in energy.
2. You must begin to meditate and use meditation to calm yourself and become one with your surroundings. This is going to be a core skill for casting. You will need to learn how to harness the power of the elements of earth (sun, moon, water, fire) and use this power in your casting. You will harness these powers by entering a strong meditative state. You will also be able to feel and interact with the spirit realm in a deep meditative state.
