Abilities That Go Unnoticed By Our Society, And That Women Themselves Often Do Not Fully AppreciateIf Every Woman Were To Listen Closely Enough To Her Own Secret Song Not Simply With Ears, But With Eyes All Three , Loins, Breasts, Heart, Spirit, And Soul She Would Discover A Power That She Has Carried Within Since Before The Beginning Of TimeI Call This Power WitchTo Be A Witch Is Not To Be Green, Have A Cackle, And Wear A Tall Pointed Hat In PublicIt Is Centuries Of Men S Fear Of Women That Has Defined Witch In This False And Pejorative SenseThe Word Has Mysterious Origins, But Is

Wych Meant To Bend, Turn, Or Shape, As Did The Indo European Root Wic And WeikThe Germanic Wit And Witan Means To Know Or To SeeThere Are No Other Known Origins For The Word WitchThe Oxford English Dictionary Tells Us That Witch Is A Celtic Word Exclusive To The Celtic TribesIt Does Not Describe Seers Or Wise Ones In Any Culture Other Than The Celtic CultureWhen Scholars, Anthropologists, Religionists, And Sociologists Refer To Other Magical Systems, Such As Voodoo Or Satanism, As Forms Of Witchcraft, They Misuse And Abuse The TermThe Early Celts Considered The Word Witch An Honorific Or Desirable Form Of Address That Would Automatically Precede A Person S Name, As In Witch Morgan Or Witch BridgetUsing Witch In This Way Conveyed Social Superiority And Prestige And Was Understood To Mean The Good People Or The People Who Followed The Customs Of The LandAs Explained In The Introduction, I Am Speaking Of The Witch In Archetypal Terms For The Purposes Of This BookI Define Witch As

A Woman S Subtle, Inward Knowing, Her Dream In The Middle Of The Night That Magically Comes True The Next DayWhen A Woman Is Aware And Respectful Of The Witch S Voice, She Can Successfully Rely On Her Magical Nature To Solve Problems, Face Up To Challenges, Or Sense And Avoid DangerThe Witch Within Gives A Woman Infinite Possibilities For Fulfilling Her Life S ChoicesShe Is A Powerful Flow Of Energy Carrying The Water, Soil, And Sun Needed To Make Precious Dreams Come TrueIt Is At Great Expense To Women That Today The Word Witch Triggers Our Fear Of The Occult Or Evil Magic, But Rarely Evokes Its original MeaningWomen Who Do Not Understand Their Witch Heritage Are Cut Off From Their Inherent Magical NaturesWithout The Witch We Feel Out Of Sorts, Off Balance, And Uncomfortable With ChangeWe Feel Foolish And Childish For Having Intuitive Thoughts And FeelingsWe Lack Confidence, Direction, And Drive In Situations That Require Exactly Those QualitiesWe Frequently Feel Sick Or Not
