Let's face it, the books, movies, and TV shows have built up witches to be pretty damn awesome, what with their superhuman powers that we all covet. Here's five magical abilities that make witches awesome and that we all secretly wish we had.
Love Potions and Other Spells
Holy hell, how friggin awesome, right? Whip up a quick spell to make the man/woman of your dreams fall head over heels gaga in love with you? Or a money spell to make you rich? Or how about just a simple healing spell? Sure, there's repercussions and consequences that come back at you threefold, and yeah, that clingy boyfriend/girlfriend will get ridiculously frustrating far too quickly, but hey, you live and you learn!
*Some Pagan religions study for years and practice the art of spellwork, so this is NOT intended to insult those who practice spells with respect to Mother Nature and the universe. This is purely for entertainment purposes and is a demonstration of extreme circumstances.
Manipulating the Elements
Again, I say Holy hell! The ability to control fire, water, air, earth, and spirit? Yes, please! Could you imagine it? Someone cuts you off on the freeway, you get pissed, and suddenly...BAM! The ground surges up around that car and swallows it - and that rude ass driver - with it. Or maybe you're standing in line at the grocery store and this really hot dude/chick walks by, and you summon the wind to blow their clothes off, thus exposing their sexy as hell body and doing a public service. Yeah. That just happened.
Fly on a Broomstick
What a way to get around! Brooms are fairly inexpensive (way cheaper than a car or airplane), and you can get from Point A to Point B quicker than walking. You're totally in charge of how fast or slow you go. You don't have to suffer through traffic jams. You can go anywhere on a whim. You can fly to exotic places without dealing with customs (UGH!) and go as often as you want! I'm getting pretty excited about this! Where can I sign up?!
I don't know a person in the world that wouldn't want to control someone's actions at one time or another (but then again, I don't know everybody in the world...). Seriously, go to McDonald's or any other food restaurant, and use your mind control to get whatever food you want for free! Use your mind control to convince your significant other to give you a foot rub or back rub. When standing in line at the grocery (or your favorite ride at the amusement park), mind control can make that line suddenly part for you and get you right up front! The possibilities are endless!
You know those pretty blue orbs sparking with electricity? How would you like to summon one of those at the flick of your wrist and hurl them at your enemies? Or maybe use them for good in instances of war, defending your country from the foulest of foes? Or just stun your family whenever stupid drama breaks out. Your imagination is he only limitation!
There are a TON of other magical abilities you're sure to want, these are just my top five. What are some of your favorites? Share in the comments!
