"White Magic is something we practice every day without realizing it. Some say that there is no difference between white and black.
Others say that white magic is good. Actually everything is good control of energies, which are those that suit us and bad are those that hurt us."

White magic, also called natural magic is magic that is used with good intentions. The opposite is black magic. Not everyone makes a distinction between these forms of magic: so, for example, many Christians reject all the magic and find bad.
White magic is historically linked to pagan nature worship and fertility cults in which gods and goddesses conveniently had to be voted for a good harvest. Modern pagan religions like Wicca practice they say only white magic.
White magic is in our time often associated with stereotypical feminine concepts like that of a mother goddess, nature spirits, unity with nature and the worship of the goddess.

spell caster and practitioners of magic for different purpose, but what
I see is many of us do not even know what is magic. So today we will

used in today modern world.
According to the usage magic is classified into two categories, the use of super natural powers or what is known as white magic and the use of paranormal powers or what is known as black magic, however white magi is considered to be the good part and the brighten side of the dark magic or black magic. White magic is considered to be harmless and is considered to be used for meaningful and self-defence purpose. White magic practices the traditional pagan nature worship and hence is also known as the natural form of magic or natural magic.
White magic all started from the Palaeolithic era. During this time the religious views were such in tend that people started to believe in spirits and deities. They started believing that communication with different forms of spirits are possible, and that the blessings from these spirits would keep them fertile and would help them cultivate more agriculture, thus from this period onwards people started worshiping many forms of god and goddesses who were offered offerings on a hill top based shrine. People thought of that praying to these god and goddesses would keep them fertile and help them with more vegetation. The existence of white magic can also be traced back to the ancient Egyptian time and it is also believed that the early Jews had seen the worshiping of different forms of god and goddesses before the Roman Empire arrived.
In the late 1400 era, the Catholic Church also gave importance to white magic and thus white magic was a much talked about topic between the upper class, with guidance from Marsilio Ficino who proved that the existence of spirits is true, people came in more light about white magic. However Ficino concentrated more on natural magic which did not required any invocation of spirits neither the same was used for harmful activity. Like already mentioned the early Christian also believed in supernatural powers, and the star is one of the proofs of the same, even the bible has many verses which talks about white magic. White magic grew to be more well-known during the era of the inquisition and anti-witchcraft time. It was such that a time came when white magic was known as the high magic and black magic was known as the low magic.
Later in the modern era, as we all developed and more researches were done. White magic was broadly defined by many by stating that white magic is a super natural form of magic used for doing good to someone. According to Robert Place, all prehistoric shamanistic magic that was practiced was a form of white magic used for helping others.
In some researches and readings it has been also found that basically those who practiced white magic used to worship goddesses than gods, different forms of deities where worshiped by the practitioners of white magic. It was such believed that worshiping the different forms of goddesses would keep them fertile, wealthy and healthy, for each and different problems they had a different form of deity to praise and worship to.
Today white magic is practiced in many forms; one of the forms much known to mankind is the Wiccan religion or the practice of Wicca. Witches who practice Wicca are said to practice white magic and that they use the natural powers present in the nature to heal and cure. Many parts of America, Australia, Africa and France have got this religion and are practiced; even Asian countries are also adopting the practice of Wicca. Wiccan followers believe in the threefold effect and would never use the white magic to harm anyone for any reason, rather they perform rituals to communicate with the natural spirits present specifically during the day time and take help from them to heal and help others.
