Witchcraft is a form of Pagan religion that worships the Goddess and horned god and has no connection with Christianity or the devil. It also only used for good not for harm.
Witchcraft uses the inner preparation of the mind which is of more important that getting the right correspondences. Visualization is necessary for magic the energy comes from within from spirit from your higher self not from a ritual a tool, candle colour or any other material object which are only tools to reach the right frame of mind to perform magic.
Bide by the law of cause and affect, for every action there is an opposite and equal reaction
The search for spiritual truth, a seeking within.
Thyself–what is it? It is consciousness; it is also the heart of the universe. Thyself, that self which is the same in thee and in me, in you and in all others, which is not different in any one of us, as compared with any other one of us. It is the ultimate self, the spiritual oversoul; and therefore it is the one self, the heart of the universe. It is the consciousness in you which says simply "I am," and that same consciousness is in me and in all others: in the Teacher, in the chelas of the Teachers, in the Teachers of the Teachers, in the Silent Watcher of our supernal sphere–that overself is the same in all entities comprised in any hierarchy.
But while that overself is the same in you, and in me, and in all that is, not different anywhere from what it is anywhere else; yet this does not comprise all there is of us psychologically speaking. There is something else within us, not different from the oversoul but a ray of that oversoul, so to say, and this something else in each one of us is the individual ego: that part in each of us which says not merely "I am," but "I am I," and not you.

Wicca is a Neopagan religion, that is also often referred to as Witchcraft or the Craft by its adherents, who are known as Wiccans or Witches. Its disputed origins lie in England in the early 20th century, though it was first popularised during the 1950s by Gerald Gardner, a retired British civil servant, who at the time called it the "witch cult" and "witchcraft", and its adherents "the Wica".
Wicca is typically a duo-theistic religion, worshiping a Goddess and a God, who are traditionally viewed as the Triple Goddess and Horned God. These two deities are often viewed as being facets of a greater pantheistic Godhead, and as manifesting themselves as various polytheistic deities. Other characteristics of Wicca include the ritual use of magic, a basic code of morality, and the celebration of eight seasonally based festivals.
The term "Wicca" was introduced by one of Gardner's rivals, Charles Cardell, in the 1950s, who based it upon the Old English word wicca, which referred to male practitioners of sorcery. There are various different denominations within the Craft, which are referred to as traditions; some, such as Gardnerianism and Alexandrianism (which are collectively often called British Traditional Wicca), follow in the initiatory lineage of Gardner, whilst others, such as Cochranianism, Feri and the Dianic tradition, take primary influence from other figures and do not always insist on an initiatory lineage. Some British Traditional Wiccans believe that the term "Wicca" should actually only apply to themselves, however others take Cardell's original view that all traditions can be considered to be "Wiccan"
The Correllian Tradition considers itself to be 'Nativist' a word roughly synonymous with 'Pagan' a form of 'Wicca' using the term as synonymous with 'Witchcraft.
What is meant by Witchcraft in this connotation is a relatively unorganized Pagan religious practice involving magic and spiritualism.
Wicca is not primarily about magic, though it does use it. Wicca is about your place in the Universe and your evolution as a spiritual being. Wicca is about moving forward on your personal spiritual journey, about learning, growing, and becoming the most you can be. Wiccan is a religion a way of understanding and interacting with Deity and the Universe. It is a life affirming path of growth and expansion.
Not everyone will have the same understanding of Deity, because not everyone is in the same place, or able to understand from the same level or perspective. Because of this no one has a right to judge another persons relationship with Deity, because each person is different
