Hello Friends!
I’m coming back this week with an out-of-time article. While writing articles about Witchcraft, I realized how much vocabulary may be challenging for those of you who don’t know much about Witchcraft yet so I decided to make a dictionary on this article to help you. I will regularly complete this article so consider it as being in construction all the time and don’t hesitate to check it often! This being said, let’s get started!

Affirmation: a positive mantra, often repeated daily in order to attract what you wish into your life. An affirmation is a kind of manifestation but used to convince yourself you can do something instead of directly asking the Universe for it.

Angels: most witches who believe in angels are Christian witches. These angels, however, are not like guardian angels (see (Spirit) Guides) but more in charge of all Human Kind, Justice, etc. They can help us when we are in difficulty but they don’t look after people daily and protect many people at a time.

Astrology: divination method based on the positions of celestial bodies in the sky the moment someone was born. This method is a bit different as it also gives understanding of one’s personality.

Aura: energy field surrounded the body.

Banishing: (spell) act to remove spirits, people, emotional obstacles, or even bad habits from your life.

Charm: a simple spell performed to give some properties to an object, often in order to protect it or the bearer of the object.

Clairs: these are the people possessing one or more psychic abilities. The expression “clairs” is personal to me to englobe all people sharing these gifts which start by the prefix “clair” such as clairvoyance (seeing), clairaudience (hearing), clairsentience (sensing / feeling things), claircognizance (knowing), clairalience (smelling), clairgustance (tasting), clair-empathy (feeling others’ feelings), clairtangency (touching).

To Ground: grounding yourself is basically enters in total consciousness of all things happening around you or even being conscious of the time flowing. It can be done through meditations, getting closer to nature, etc.

(Spirit) Guide: just like the idea of a “guardian angel”, a spirit guide or guide is a light being who works with you personally. Everyone has some. Some stay for your whole life and others come and go. They can be souls of people you knew in the live or others who passed away. They guide you, help you go through hardships and understand lessons and protect you when needed.

Higher Self: the divine part of your soul that remembers everything you lived and has all the answers about your life and past lives, soul contracts and times between lives.

Intention: an intention is the goal you want to reach. Intentions are important during manifestation as this is the result you wish to obtain.
