Slavic paganism shares many features with Voodoo, including rituals and magic spells. This tradition involves calling on demons and spirits to perform specific tasks. Many of the ideas from this ancient religion were incorporated into organized Christianity, including demonology. Various Slavic deities were also worshipped. In addition, Slavic witchcraft also incorporated ideas from the natural world. Some of the herbs used in Slavic witchcraft had medicinal properties, so they were considered useful to everyday life.
The first Slavic witch was a woman who went mushroom picking one day. It was raining, and she quickly stripped off her clothing. During the rain, she was approached by a horned god called Veles. Veles approached her and offered to teach her the ways of magic in return for her help. Afterwards, the woman began to hide under a tree. The horned god then began to speak to her and taught her how to practice Slavic witchcraft.
In Slavic mythology, demons often took the form of women. These included old witches, “besom – baba-jaga” and night demons. Water nymphs, which posed as beautiful creatures, were often believed to be the ghosts of lost girls. They were often associated with female witches, particularly those who had drowned in the past. It is difficult to say whether or not this fear is a factor in the rise of Slavic witchcraft today.
Slavic witchcraft has roots in ancient paganism. People have been manipulating energy since the beginning of time. Although most Slavic nations were under communist regimes that indoctrinated them in atheism, the practice of witchcraft continued in the rural communities. It was often hidden and largely ignored until the fall of the Berlin Wall. However, the tradition of Slavic witchcraft has survived centuries and is growing in popularity in the western world.
The Slavic native faith is passed down from generation to generation. There are three ways of inheriting it. Children who have the “witchblood” will often have a long tailbone, crooked pinky fingers, or a nose. In addition, if the child has a specific day of birth, such as May eve, the witch will be able to tell. The tradition is also alive in legends about shamans.
Slavic witchcraft ties belladonna to the feminine tree Rusalki. Witches often infused their homes with bitch water, a liquid that was believed to attract the energies needed for exorcism or purification. The plant’s leaves were believed to be antiseptic, while the sap and bark of the tree relieved muscle pain. This plant was used as a medicine and is associated with Slavic witchcraft.
Slavs also believed in mares, or two-headed deities. One such deity, the strzyga, came from the souls of early dead children. Unmarried children were said to be the most powerful. The souls of young children were believed to be tainted with a poisonous substance. Despite the power of the tainted blood, slavic witchcraft practices continued until the fifteenth century, when Christians began to take over the countryside.
