Witches are the brand new "it" thing in paranormal fiction as well as on television, but the average person knows hardly any about this ancient art and what's portrayed in gossip columns and tv is way from reality. You'll find terms like "white witchcraft" and "black magic" being thrown around, what can they mean? Exactly what is the difference between regular witchcraft and the what are named as "white witchcraft" that some claim that they can practice and where does the so named "black magic" go with doing this?

The concept of witches and witchcraft have been shaped as to what we have seen in movies and tv as well as what we should read in children's stories as a kid. But is actually the truth?

The word "witch" has lots of meanings instead of all of them are negative. In fact, before the word was used on practitioners of folk medicine. In the past, there were few doctors and people who did practice medicine were so expensive that just the very rich could afford their services. It was for that reason that individuals began to find their particular cures in the herbs and plants that grew near their villages plus a meditation type of prayer.

Those who mastered this art, became practitioners of folk medicine. It's from all of these practitioners that the references to "good" or "white" witches are derived from and also the terms "dark", "black", or "evil" when their cures failed to work. When a cure failed, it had been thought that the healers "familiar" or "animal guide" had been demonized.

In the time the witch trials across Europe, many healers were found guilty of witchcraft. In fact, more than one 50 % of the accused witches in Hungary have been healers of some kind. In France, many healers were also charged with witchcraft.

Following your witch trials, there is a popular thought there was witches that practiced true "white witchcraft". It was considered that these witches strictly helped people and that there was never malicious intent or even a wish to do injury to anyone. White witchcraft, unlike malicious magic, was tolorated and in many cases accepted by the people in spite of the churches still opposing it. On the other hand, the method of dark or black witchcraft was strictly forbidden legally.

Today, many neopagan witches identify with the concept of "white witchcraft" and the thought of harming nobody. They dismiss the concept of "magic" in it's popular definition as fiction.
