Witchcraft is a very powerful form of sorcery that channels its power from the elements and forces of Nature. Witchcraft is described as the practice of psionic powers that encompasses many different activities including astrology, divination, spell casting, and spirit communication. It includes the practices of many cultures, nations, and religions as well as many books and writings from ancient times. Depending upon the individual, some witches practice their power by certain belief systems, such as Druidism, Shamanism, Wicca and a number of many other magical practices from countries and cultures all around the world.
The Threefold Law[edit | edit source]
The Threefold Law is a spiritual belief system based around the observations of the Cosmos and the reverence of Mother Nature. The Threefold Law is intimately tied to the metaphysical energies of the Universe and the idea that all things (i.e. animals, humans, plants, etc.) are all considered sacred, as they are all different aspects of Nature that are all interconnected. Contemporary witches would also agree that using ancient ceremonies, rituals and shamanic practices is the best way to attune themselves with the natural rhythms of the Universe in their efforts to obtain guidance and knowledge from Higher Powers. According to a rather intelligent witch named Lirio, the Threefold Law was created by the Old Gods as a means to ensure that the Natural Order remains balanced, informing Sarah Bailey that "Life keeps a balance all on its own".
