Normally not a good idea ever to post your cap online you are going to try and sell, but in this case there is no harm since even if you did steal it you could not finish it.
Suffice to say there will be a lot more in the finished product of the first chapter.
The book will be called Cat’s Guide to being a Witch and Witchcraft.
So you want to be a witch, to use witchcraft, cast spells and do magic? Well that fine, that’s what this guide is for, this book will teach you witchcraft and how to be a witch without all that nasty religious Wicca stuff getting in the way. Do not get me wrong, I am a Wiccan witch myself, but I learned my stuff on my own through trial and error pretty much, and I never limited myself in my studies to only Wiccan stuff. And it is that style I will present to you. If you want to learn Wiccan ritualistic magic put the book down, this is not the droid you are looking for, If you want to learn magic, simple effective magic then continue reading, because that is what I shall teach you.
Okay first thing I am going to break you of if you have it is your expectations of magic. There are no poofs, no flashes (unless you add something to a fire) and no zaps, sparkles or anything else for that matter. If you are lucky perhaps nature might grace you with a gust of wind, but don’t count on it. Mostly when you finish a spell you feel nothing, nothing happens, and the world around you remains unchanged; and yet, it does not. When a spell is done you have released forces (energies to be precious) that will then work towards your ends in the ways you have guided them to, or in ways you did not say they could not take. And then, things happen, often things that you wanted to come about, things that seem like coincidences, and they may well could be, but, perhaps they are not, and in time you will see just too many coincidences stack up to be ignored and you will know then that your spells work, and that magic is real.
Now, what is a spell? Well to be a spell an action that you take must fulfill three things.
1. You must build up, or gather energy.
2. You must direct that energy towards a goal. (And most often prohibit it from reaching it in certain ways.)
3. Release said energy to do as you have willed it to do.
Simple huh? Well if it was you would not need this book. But if you thank you can do it n your own go ahead, do try, after all my words are not going anywhere. Just be warned that the best thing that can happen when a spell goes wrong is that it does not work. Still with me? Good. Because a witch must have restraint, confidence without arrogance, and a willingness to accept they do not know everything and must learn what they do not know, even though there is no way to learn it all, ever. If you want off for a few months and just came back, don’t feel bad, some people need to touch fire before they learn it is hot, you seem to be one of these people.
Okay, first thing we are going to work on since you now know what a spell is, is ethics. If you are going to be a witch, you need some, period, no question of that. This is a non religious book, so you will have to find your own ethics and a system of them, but if you are a little lazy about it try this one. “Balance in all works.” Basically it means that you do not have to strive to do only ‘good’ spells as the Wiccans might (probably would) have you believe, but you should strive for balance, do not go around cursing some poor fool who doesn’t deserve it in your opinion, and be ready to pay for your actions in every spell you do. It is fine to protect yourself and those you love by whatever means you choose, but perhaps you should spare the poor misguided fool who chooses his or her words poorly with you. Uncle Ben once said “With great power comes great responsibility.” And those words are true, and guess what? By choosing to become a witch you just signed up for both. That is why this a guide on how to become a witch not just how to use magic.
