Welcome to the Witchcraft 101 Course created by the Ancient Allies Witch.
This course will cover 6 topics that all new Witches should become familiar with.
It is designed for those who are new to the Craft. But certainly does not exclude those who have practiced for some time. I often learn a great deal from teachings focused on ‘Witchcraft basics’.
If you find yourself here, it is because you purchased this course via the Ancient Allies website. That purchase entitles you to free council from the Ancient Allies Witch (that’s me!), concerning course material, for 6 months following your purchase date. Questions, comments, and concerns can be emailed to AncientAlliesBlog@gmail.com anytime. They will be reviewed and responded to on Mondays & Thursdays before days end. Assuring you guaranteed access to a response by the Tuesday or Friday most closely following your inquiry. Keeping to this schedule is done so that you are assured I will have enough time to properly address your inquiries. If there were no schedule I would find myself quickly throwing together responses when life has me on the fly! This would not serve either one of us!
Questions and activities throughout the course are designed to assist you in developing your Craft. It is not necessary for you to share your answers or experiences with me. However, if you would like to receive feedback from me in these areas, please send them to the email above. I will respond to them on the schedule above as well.
Your presence here is greatly appreciated! And I would like for you to be aware, from the start of our relationship, that I do not find any question or concern too ‘simple’. The learning process is different for each person, and I am a firm believer that asking a question which may feel ‘silly’ is much better than leaving it unanswered. This is even more true of The Craft. There is a plethora of information out there which can be both confusing and misleading to ‘Witchlings’. It is better to clear up any misunderstanding or lack of knowledge from the onset. Rather than allow a misconception to cloud the learning process.
In other words, DON’T HESITATE TO ASK THE WITCH!
You should also be aware that due to the highly personal aspect of practicing Witchcraft I am only able to provide information from my own perspective. I practice Witchcraft on my own terms, as I believe you should. Therefore, because all course material has been written by me, it is a reflection of my beliefs, morals, and value system. It is up to you to choose what resonates with your inner-being and what does not! You should take ALL that you can from the material/interaction provided with this course, as it has been created in good conscious. With an effort to assist my Brothers and Sisters in the Craft as they travel along their spiritual path. But if there is something you completely disagree with, then by all means leave it behind. It is clearly not meant for you. And you should not carry anything along with you on your journey that does not belong.
With all of that said I suppose we should get started …
Below you will find a series of links to each section of the course. They have a brief description of their content with them as well. This description is not meant to encourage you to jump forward in the course. It is there to raise your excitement about what lies ahead of you. Of course, I can’t stop you from jumping ahead. That is outside of my control. But I STRONGLY advise you to be patient and stay on course! As the materials design is a ‘building block’ type structure. Lesson 2 will speak of things you learned in lesson 1 as though you already know them. If you have skipped ahead you will be missing the knowledge you need to fully understand the material.

💫🧙♀️💫How Magic Works💫🧙♀️💫
I find that many new Witches experience a very 'hit and miss' kind of result from their magical workings. Some of this happens as a result of the natural learning process, for sure. But some of it is due to the fact that they lack a fundamental knowledge of how magic works. Understanding the basic tenets behind the practice of the Craft is a truly essential element to the overall success of a Witch's magical practice.
In this section of the course, we will cover exactly what magic is and how it works.
💫🧙♀️💫Morals & The Craft💫🧙♀️💫
There is always a lot of buzz in the Witchcraft community concerning topics such as; cursing, interfering with free will, calling on negative energies (evil, if you will), etc ...
In this section of the course, we will cover the importance of maintaining integrity in your magical practice. And how to energetically manipulate the world around you without having to resort to working with negative energy.
💫🧙♀️💫Types of Witches💫🧙♀️💫
Green Witch? Kitchen Witch? Hedge Witch? Sea Witch? Eclectic Witch? And ... oh my ... how many more types of Witches? Witches go by many different names. But which type are you? And what is the difference between all of the different types?
In this section of the course, we'll clear up all of your questions concerning the often confusing issue of 'witchy labels'.
💫🧙♀️💫Tools of The Craft💫🧙♀️💫
A new Witch can very quickly find themselves overwhelmed by all of the magical tools that they read about as they begin researching the Craft. And who can blame them! The tools and how to use them are all pretty foreign to a Witchling. And if that isn't enough to make them feel disoriented, they are reading about practices that these tools are used for which they often don't really even understand.
In this section of the course, I will present the most common tools of the Craft to you. And I will provide you with a clear description of their most practical uses.
💫🧙♀️💫Cleansing & Protection💫🧙♀️💫
It is very common for a new Witch to feel uncomfortable, sometimes even unsafe, as they 'get their toes wet' in the Craft. And then others just charge forward on their path, without even a thought of any negative implications. Both of these approaches have drawbacks and merits. ALL Witches need to understand and actively practice cleansing and protecting themselves, their loved ones (including the furry kind), and their homes.
In this section of the course, we'll learn how to effectively cleanse and protect yourself throughout your day and while practicing magic. As well as how to cleanse and protect your loved ones and your home as needed.
Witchcraft is a lifestyle. Many who get involved with the Craft treat it as a practice, something they participate in when they feel moved to do so. I often refer to it as a practice myself. I've even made that reference in the text on this very page. But if you want to reap the full benefit of being a Witch, you need to learn to make the Craft a way of life. It should be part of all that you do. And it should have an influence over all of your decisions, actions, reactions, and definitely over all of your words.
In this section of the course, we will cover ways that you can bring the Craft into your daily life with ease. Basic tenets you can follow on a regular basis which will increase the presence and power of magic in your life.
