How To Become Wiccan: The Myths And Truths Of Adopting A Magickal Life

Choosing to become Wiccan is not an easy decision for some. With all the benefits of living a Magickal life comes potential opposition of friends and family.

Once you've made the decision to pursue Wicca, don't let anything stop you. There are ways of explaining it that can soothe any reservations outsiders may have. If you ask me, it's well worth it... but it's something you have to decide for yourself.

...were you born with the power to do Magick? Find out...


Question #1:


Are you a man or a woman?




Witchcraft (the big umbrella that encompasses Wicca) at it's core, is the belief in the power of nature...and that everything is connected by a web of energy. It is the believe that everything shares this same energy... or life force.

Other than the practice of Magick...and adopting the belief system, there's nothing you really have to do to become Wiccan. Of course there are formal "dedication rituals" you can perform to solidify things in your mind... but you can become Wiccan today by starting the study and practice of it.

Let's go through some of the beliefs and "rules" most Wiccans have in common. Though there's no official "process" to become Wiccan, it's important that you at least see eye-to-eye on the main system of beliefs.

The first one is a biggie: Live life as you will... as long as you do not harm anybody, or any thing.

There is no room in Wicca for adversely effecting anyone else through spells or other actions. It's all about cultivating and releasing positive energy...and taking great care not to "accidentally" hurt someone else as a by-product of your spells.

The second is: the energy of the universe is the only energy/life force...and it connects everything.

Yes, there are deities... but they are all a product of the energy of the universe, and it is this energy that powers Magick.

The third is: Magick is real. Believe that changing your future is as simple as changing your thoughts, emotions, and actions.

If these 3 beliefs line up with your true self... if you feel a mystical connection with the world around you, and have always had a curiousity about Magick, and what is possible... it's time to educate yourself.

Read every book you can on Wicca... the rich history...how to cast spells... how to live a Magickal life.

Keep a journal of your thoughts, spells, goals, beliefs... this is your Book Of Shadows. Write in it daily.

Learn about the process of casting a spell...why spells work... and how to cast successful spells.

Learn more about yourself...and exactly what inside of you draws you to Wicca.

Define a set of goals for your practice of Wicca. What do you want to achieve in your life...and how can Wicca help you get there?

When you're ready, think about doing a dedication ritual...to initiate yourself into Wicca, and solidify the belief system into your mind, heart and spirit.

Here's a simple one you can do... to make it as "official" as it can be...even though it's not required.

Rose's Simple Self Dedication Ritual

Your goal in doing this self dedication is to get closer to the Divine...and solidify your connection to Wicca.

What you'll need:

* A quiet place (private and free of distraction)
* Blessing oil
* Half a teaspoon of salt
* A white candle

STEP 1: Sit quietly and "ground yourself" by finding inner peace, clarity of thought, and relaxation. Try to remove all things from your mind. Focus on tranquility.

STEP 2: Sprinkle the salt on the floor, and stand or sit on it.

STEP 3: Light the candle... feel it's warmth. Look into it's glow and visualize the goals you will achieve on the Magick path. Think about why you resonate with Wicca.

STEP 4: Say: "I am a child of the Goddess, and I ask her to bless me."

STEP 5: Dip your forefinger on your right hnad into the blessing oil... rub a little on your forehead with your eyes closed. You can trace a pentagram on your forehead with the oil if you wish.

STEP 6: Say: "My mind is blessed, as I accept the wisdom of the Goddess."

STEP 7: Gently, and carefully, touch your finger to your eyelids and say: "My eyes are blessed, so that I can see my spiritual path clearly."

STEP 8: Touch the tip of your nose and say: "My nose is blessed so that I can breathe in Divine energy."

STEP 9: Touch your lips and say: "My lips are blessed so that I may speak with wisdom and respect."

STEP 10: Touch your chest and say: "My heart is blessed so that I can love myself and those around me."

STEP 11: Touch your hands together and say: "My hands are blessed, so that they can heal and help."

STEP 12: Next, say: "Today I dedicate myself to the God and Goddes. I walk with them, because I know they will guide me on this journey. I will honor them, so that I may be closer to them. So mote it be."

STEP 13: Meditate for a few minutes, and feel the energy of the divine around you.

Next...open your mind and heart...focus on bringing more love into the world.

You are Wiccan. :)
