Witch - Unleashed. Untamed. Unapologetic. by Lisa Lister
On the Back of the Book
A witch is a women in her power. She's wise, a healer, someone who is aligned with the cycles of Mother Nature and the phases of the Moon. Yet for so long, the word 'witch' has had negative connotations - being used as an insult, a slur and to perpetuate fear. In this book, third generation hereditary witch Lisa Lister explains the history behind witchcraft, why in past centuries the word 'witch' has led women to be tortured, drowned and burned at the stake, and why the witch is now waking once again in women across the world today.
This book will help women to remember, reconnect and reclaim the word 'witch' and its power. It provides an overview of the many different versions of witchcraft and their core principles and practices, and shares ancient wisdom made relevant for waking witches, including how to:

Being a witch and practicing witchcraft is a way of life, not a religion. It's based on a belief in nature and the desire to follow the Old Ways. Witches recognise the divine within themselves and have many strands of belief and tradition. They're ordinary people, not scary beings with strange, mystical powers, and have the same abilities as everyone else. However, they encourage the development of extra skills, such as spells, healing and psychic abilities, and it's these activities that are often misconstrued.
Being a witch hasn't always been an easy task. From the 13th to 18th centuries in Western Europe, witches were regarded as being people who misused supernatural powers. They were often seen as servants of the devil, with a scary and harmful way of life. Witches became persons to be fearful of and many suffered the trauma of being burnt at the stake for their beliefs and abilities. When the witchcraft hysteria was in full swing, witches got blamed for every unexpected occurrence, from crop failures, to droughts, floods, accidents and numerous natural disasters.
Witches beliefs are diverse and depend on the particular tradition they follow. However, some common principles include:
The three fold law - that one's actions return three times over. For example, an act of kindness produces three times much as kindness.
The idea that everyone is responsible for his or her own actions.
Just as with other beliefs, witches have their own special celebrations. There are eight major events in the year, termed sabbats (Beltane, Litha, Lammas, Mabon, Samhain, Yule, Imbolc and Ostara).
Despite many misconceptions, witches don't fly broomsticks and aren't always accompanied by black cats, although many of course do choose to have furry feline friends!
