This helps a lot of people feel better about themselves and their future.

White witches are lightworkers, casting brightness into the darkest of shadows.

White witches would never hex or curse anyone.

They will always approach their path with positivity and radiance.

Like all paths of witchcraft, you do not have to worship a deity.

If you choose, you can worship Goddess, be it a specific goddess from ancient mythologies, or the idea of a vague higher power.

If a higher energetic being is too much for you to digest, that’s no problem!

You can also find worship in their earth, something that is tangible that you can see.

If the earth isn’t what moves you, find yourself as your higher power.
