Natural Witch Abilities: Were You Born With Magical Powers?

A topic that causes debate in the witchy community every time:  are we born with natural witch abilities or are they learned and cultivated? I believe certain people are born with magical skills or abilities that others might not be born with. Some might have three or four, some might only have one. And some witches have none but learn these magical skills over their lifetimes. Either way – it’s okay! However, I’ve found that nearly every witch I’ve met was drawn to the craft because of one of these natural abilities they already possessed. I’ll bet you have at least one if not more of these natural witch abilities!

Do You Have Any of These Natural Witch Abilities?

They say there’s no such thing as a “natural witch”, but I’ll bet even the naysayers possess one of these abilities since their childhood!

1. The Clairs: Psychic Abilities

Clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience, clairsalience, clairgustance and claircognizance are all natural witch abilities. Some are born with one or more. Clairvoyance is the ability to “see clearly”, meaning you have the ability to see spirits or auras around people or things. It also means you could receive flashes of images in your mind’s eye or visions. Clairaudience is to “hear clearly”, the ability to hear spirits or gods talking to you. You might even be able to hear people’s thoughts. Clairsentience is “clear feeling” and means you feel in your gut or in your body that something’s not right. Clairsalience is “clear smelling”, which often manifests in the form of smelling spirits when present.

Clairgustance is “clear tasting”, which manifests as tasting something that isn’t actually in your mouth. Maybe a food someone cooked recently, sulphur or cigarettes, etc. Again, mostly in relation to spirits but can be experienced in other situations. Claircognizance is the ability to “know clearly” and means you know things without having an explanation. Maybe you knew your friend was going to get into a car accident and warned her right before it happened. 

2. Animal Connection & Manifestation

I know a few natural witches who have a deep connection with animals. This doesn’t just mean you love animals, this means you have the ability to communicate with them and manifest them. What do I mean by manifest animals? You think of an animal you’d like to meet in nature and BOOM that animal shows up. Or maybe you’ve been longing for a new pet and a stray cat shows up at your door the next day. You understand animals better than anyone you know. Animal connection and manifestation are natural witch abilities. 

3. Human Connection

Maybe you’re not great with animals or have psychic abilities, per se, but you are empathic. An empath is someone who can literally feel the emotions and/or physical feelings of other people. They also tend to take on the energies of those around them, which can be overwhelming and emotional at times. Another form of human connection is telepathy – the ability to hear other people’s thoughts or send your thoughts to someone else’s mind. Human connection in these ways are natural witch abilities that can’t be denied. 

4. Healing

Many witches have the ability to heal. Natural witches are often born with the ability to heal themselves, others, and even animals. Sometimes this comes in the form of herbal remedies, sometimes it comes in the form of energy healing. Healers are drawn to holistic medicine, including herbs, Reiki, and crystal healing. Do you have the healer’s mark on your palm known as the Samaritan sign? This is indicative that you’re a natural born healer. Click here to find out. 

5. Dreaming

Since a young age, I remember having very vivid dreams, many in which I was flying away from things or over the landscape. In one dream, a friend taught me the ability to “fly” which as an adult I realized was the ability to astral travel. In my teen years, I got really involved in lucid dreaming and taught myself how to become lucid in my dreams on a regular basis. One of the natural witch abilities is dreaming. But you don’t just dream, you remember your dreams, you learn things in your dreams, you even travel to other worlds in your dreams. You will also have the ability to astral project or travel and control what you’re doing in your dreams.

6. Green Thumb

The ability to help things grow is a natural witch ability that I was NOT born with – I had to learn it. HOWEVER, I know one witch in particular who has always had the natural ability to grow things. It seems like every seed she plants grows into a strong, healthy plant of some kind (no matter where she lives). Everything in her garden is ALWAYS green and full of life! Her plants adore her! The green thumb isn’t a myth – it’s a reality and especially for some natural witches who are lucky enough to be born with this skill. 

7. Weather

Last but not least, some witches are born with the uncanny power of weather prediction. Perhaps this is also a learned technique, but there are some natural witches who can look at the sky and know when a storm will come (before a cloud is visible in the sky!) Some know when it will snow before watching the weather. I’ve only met one person like this my entire life, but she was ALWAYS right about the weather! It’s like they can feel it in their bones and have a deep connection to the sky and weather patterns. Some natural witches even have the ability to call on the rain, snow, and sun.

Are we born with natural witch abilities or do we learn them?

I believe all witches have a natural ability of some kind, whether they admit it or not. I also believe these abilities can be learned with practice over time. And yet again, there are people with these abilities who don’t consider themselves witches at all, and that’s fine too! If you have any of these natural witch abilities, your life is bound to be enriched…if you learn how to control them and not let them control you! For example, some empaths are so weighed down with their ability sometimes they refuse to leave their house. Some say they wish they never had these abilities, that they’re more of a curse than a blessing. This means this person needs to learn how to control their ability.

Magical Powers of the Natural Witch

    As a young child, between the ages of about 5 and 7years, I became aware of the fact that I was able to call upon the wind to blow anytime I wished. I believe it was the innocence of a child that allowed the connection with the power of the Universe. I remember thinking how neat this was and I would test it often. I live in the south and summers are hot, so I would often call on the wind to cool me off. It was not a loud request; most times just a quiet “wind blow” that would bring the wind. I was always very aware that it was not my own power, but a benevolent power that humored me. I was always very grateful for this ability/blessing. I recall that around the age of 7 or 8 years old I was no longer able to call up the wind. I remember being very sad and feeling as though I had lost something. I cannot be sure, but I have always equated the loss of this blessing with the indoctrination of organized religion and/or the contamination of my soul by an adult. It makes me sad to this day that something exterior to my innocent faith was introduced into my conscience/awareness and destroyed that original, pure relationship I had with the Universe. I long for that connection again. Thank you for reading.

    For some plants I have a green thumb. Others… no. I can easily tap into my intuition whenever I want. I’m also clear-tasting. Animals like birds don’t fly away or hide immediately from me, which they don’t do the same with my family, and many times, they stay where they are and are fine with me. Humans? I am easily forgiven- except for when it comes to my siblings. Every dream of mine has been lucid. But I am also in control of all of mine, and can end a dream at will. Whenever I go on a tennis court (10 degrees hotter) I don’t know exactly how hot it is. I thought it would be 88 normally and 98 on the courts. It was. And lastly, I have ALWAYS been drawn to natural medicine and herbalism.

I would want a article on dream walking just for clarification, but I use the underworld to travel through dreams. I talk to my friend a lot. Can anyone else dream walk?

      I have the same powers and some others too. I have a lot of dreams that happens the next day the exact same way. I tough that it was just coincidences but I entered puberty and I feel way more connected to everything so I decided to do some researches so now I’m pretty sure I’m a natural witch so I started meditation and I m trying to control my abilities.

    I’m an air element and ever since I was young when I got (still happens) mad, some kind of powerful storm picks up somewhere. When I got mad at my father one time, a day later people were saying “Here comes huriccane delta.” I don’t know if I caused it!? I can also drive away storms, and summon the wind. I wasn’t born a witch but I stated learning witchcraft at 11. Can you be born a witch and have no witch ansesters?

      February 28, 2021 at 4:42 pm

      Yes you can. I am one cuz I’m pretty sure that I’m the only witch in my family. I can predict weather, feel and see auras, control my dreams and make it rain or be sunny. I also feel like a huge connection with nature, animals, humans and the moon. Since like forever I could feel physical and emotional pain of my surroundings. I remember that my mother used to have a lot of headaches and every time she had one, I had one too. My parents told me it’s probably my imagination making me feel pain but now I know it’s witchcraft for sure

    Clairvoyance, a little bit of animal and human connection. I can feel pain of others and sometimes animals, also can feel the pain my grandma goes through, and I’ve always had a connection with animals and I’ve also had animals who love everyone else but are nervous of me. I also believe a dark entity or some kind of negative thing attached itself to me when I was younger.

      Me too! I’m 36 and completely (well technically speaking, completely) sane, but I have always remembered “dreams” I had as a young kid, probably ages 7-15 in which I was taken from my home in the middle of the night by what my memory always recalls as 4-5 “aliens” and I’d wake up in the morning with scars or marks in places there were none the night before. It’s always strange to me now that in my memory, my mind Says they’re aliens, when what my eyes clearly remember seeing in the dreams was human beings, 4-5 of them, in white, lab-style clothing, carrying me away on something… Mattress…? Stretcher…? And now at my age, I’m sometimes in a group of “random” strangers when, for just a split second, I have a flash of what feels like real memory in which I once knew or played with All of these total strangers when I was young…. But just as quickly the memory flashes away and I cannot get it back again and recall where it when I knew them from no matter how hard I try. But the familiarity lingers forever.
      Anyone else or am I maybe a little crazy?

    Ever feel like you had some abilities as a young kid, that you discovered you could bend anything to your will… i have flashbacks of this feeling from when i was a kid and i feel like something was taken away from me. I have always had an inclination for this kind of thing, my sense of intuition has always been very keen and street lights coincidentally turn off constantly when i pass under them. IDK i feel like something was forced out of me.

    So I’m not a natural born witch, and for some reason though, it’s like I have a connection to the wind. When I get angry, the wind picks up, when I’m calm, there is usually a slight breeze or nothing. So what does this mean for me. Also I have been having my friend help because she is a hereditary witch and a green witch.

      As of now, I know things before they happen and can feel other emotions and pain. When I was younger I had wild dreams. I would dream of things before they happen, and get weird vivid criptic messages. I also used to be able to hear strange things and heal myself very quickly. As I got older these things faded away. Why is that?

    Hey, my name is Lavender. I have a problem.. So, I know I’m a witch, natural born due to my grandmothers side of the family. And ever since I was a kid, I always had this feeling I was different. It was only when I was probably 10 years old and I got angry , leaves began to circle around me and the wind picked up pretty heavy. When I calmed down everything stopped. As I grew, I realized my powers grew as well. When I get angry, people get hurt and cars go off on their own when I’m near them. And not just one car, but all of them. Also, I took a trip to North Carolina to meet another witch, with my sister in law, who is also a witch. But, the witch I met in North Carolina said that I have a lot of power for a witch my age, that it scared her. My sister in law also said the same thing. That was when I was 20, now I’m 21 trying to seek control over what I got. I know my father, was part of group of people that did dark magic and they always had rings. Is it possible that what my father was a part of also has to do with my present today?
    I don’t want other fellow witches to be scared of me… What do I do, to get this under control?

    This is fascinating information! I always felt that my family passed on traits of magick and I can clearly remember specific incidents when strange, but miraculous things would happen. I have always loved to be outside and in nature and I am the most awake and focused when the moon is out, 100% a night owl. No matter how tired I am during the day, as soon as it is night and the moon comes out I am awake, and full of energy. I have always been fascinated with space, the moon, the planets and the unknown and I am always seeking knowledge or insights. I have also, always said if I had a superpower, it would be empathy. I have stopped saying if and now accept it as a real skill that I possess. I am very good at feeling the emotions and knowing what people are sensing and thinking around me, but I have begun to practice control when I want to feel these emotions and when I want to turn them off. I am a teacher and I was just always exhausted when I went home after a day of feeling the emotions of my students around me and I needed to block some of it for my sanity. I also am not a big fan of large groups and feel tense, drained and exhausted in them. I have always had a connection with Ancient Ireland and Scotland and just learned that part of my heritage hails from Ancient Scotland and an ancestor surname on my Mother’s side was Faye, which could be linked to their healing abilities and being given the name (My dad’s side surname was MacTavish changed to Thompson). I used to think these feelings and insights were crazy, but I am beginning to embrace them as real and am looking into officially converting to paganism. I have never felt comfortable in a Christian church or even discussing Christianity with others. Several family members are agnostic and atheist and others are strict Catholic, but I am wanting to change my path. I feel comfortable and even relaxed when I think about converting to a neopaganism. In the past few weeks in my research I have felt an intense energy and have even started seeing numbers. Most often the repeated number 1. 1:11 and 11:11 yesterday. I looked up the meaning and 111 means following the correct path, which made me feel great. Thank you for the post!

    when I was younger, I don’t know when, I started to be able to hear peoples thoughts and see auras and spirts. at first it scared me but I learned that it was not something to fear. now I am 15 years old and I discover that I can do a few more things like Astral project, Clairvoyance, clairaudience, and healing. I think this cite is great for witches that don’t know that they are yet. But if you do have these powers don’t fear them.

      When I was little I would hear voices in my house and when I was out and about. The most vivid memory was when I saw a lady whispering to my dad at stone henge *back when you were allowed to walk freely around* and he began to cry and demanded we left. My parents took me to a psychologist and they coined that my mental health was normal and that perhaps it was just the vivid dreams I was having. I hear people sometimes still and I believe they are spirits, I have vivid dreams that often come true and I can sense when things aren’t right.
      You’re definitely not alone in this!

    I have all of them but two aren’t as strong as the others; “Green Thumb” NOT, predicting weather, hit or miss. I am not a practicing witch. I was born just “knowing”. I really didn’t get started on my “path” until my middle 30’s ( I am currently 66 soon to be 67). I have a strong connection to Ireland, Scotland, Wales and England. My ancestors are from Ireland, possibly Wales, and Scotland (My father’s Dad was born in Scotland, his mother in Ireland but grew up in England). While visiting England in 1985 I had very strong psychic and past life experiences while touring the country side; especially in Avebury and Wales. I cannot do a family tree as most everyone is gone now and I am the “oops” baby from a family of 5. Only 2 of us left – me and my sister 12 years older than I and she has dementia. We just buried the last of my aunt’s on my father’s side this year, she was 95! My mother’s side haven’t a clue where they came from but I’m thinking Ireland. I’ve had a long of past life dreams, regressions and just this uncanny ‘knowing’ when something is about to happen. I walk into a room and right away I can feel the vibes. As far as witchcraft — I KNOW I WAS ONE and was murdered for the practice of healing. Thank you for posting this wonderful information because it helps me to understand myself that much more.

    I was raised in a confused, conservative, christian household. Mind you I did also say confused. I have been back and forth with my faith for years now. Trying to justify believing in something that I am not sure is real or not, versus following the path that has come naturally to me since I was a child. I know this will sound like the active imagination of a child, but when I was a young child…..I could will the wind to blow. I did it many, many times and I tested it over and over. I loved that by just asking the wind to blow, I could have a nice breeze whenever I wanted. I guess I first noticed this ability when I was about 5 years old, and then when I was around 8 years old, this ability left me. I recall that it became harder and harder to get the breeze, and eventually it no longer came. I felt like I lost a connection with something. There was a lot of turmoil in my family like at that time and I think maybe that could have had something to do with it, but I am not sure. Even being raised to believe a certain way, and never being told how to will things into being, I just knew that this approach worked. I wasn’t allowed to watch television up until about the age of 10, so I was not influenced by that either. I have always just felt naturally intuitive and had a connection with the wind and the moon. I have always been taught that being a witch is unacceptable and there have been times when I rebelled against the religion I was raised in, but I went back. There is always that fear that has been fostered in me. I believe that I have a strong natural gift, but so far, I have been forbade to use it. I just needed to visualize my dilemma in text. It helps to confide in others who will understand. I have never taken this opportunity before. Thanks for listening.

        Ever since I was a very small child my mother said I was intuitive, by 9 months I was potty trained and walking by 1 I was talking in full sentences and reading, as a child because of my unique name people would joke that I should bring rain when I’d come see them and sometimes it would rain when I’d come, I have dreams that come true and I can feel others emotions and even feel their past by touching them, I see auras and I can sense danger and when the spirit world is watching, I’ve never thought of myself as a witch or ever having powers just deja by or coincidence and even just plain paranoia but as I have learned more at 21 things keep happening that I can’t control and people now walk up to me asking if I am a witch I grew up in a very Christian home and have never even dared to look into these things

      ASTA, your story is so similar to mine!!!! I can also make the wind blow and rain too, I was recently told not to mess with the weather because mother nature is a force not to be reckoned with. It’s a long story but I had something wind damaged after playing with the weather, it was all really strange. My husband thought maybe raccoons had something to do with it and I just giggled and told him I thought I did it. Anyway thank you for posting this, I was meant to read it. I’m a bit confused right now and wondering what to do now because I’m getting really powerful all the sudden.
      P.S. this just happened last night.

    I’ve been drawn to witchcraft since childhood but since I was raised in a hardcore conservative Christian cult I was never able to pursue my interest. I have had reliable premonitions, usually of people’s impending death, since I was a teenager. I am almost always right when I get a vision of someone dying. They die. It is a hard thing to live with. I also predict the weather very reliably, my grandmother was able to do this as well. I am a healer and I spend a great deal of time learning about native plants and their medicinal properties. I have the ability to know what other people are thinking and feeling with decent accuracy, but this is an ability I try to block as I do not like to be around people and the constant input of information is overwhelming and over stimulating.
    I am scientifically minded and very sceptical though, so I have always struggled to accept the things that happen to me. I recently experienced astral travel, with the help of cannabis. The things I saw and the beings that spoke to me helped put things in perspective. Even writing this sounds kooky and crazy, but it is real and has happened to me.

      Rachel – It doesn’t sound kooky or crazy to me. These and similar things have happened to me my entire life!

      Hi, it was really nice reading your comment. I am a healer and empath. I was raised in a strict christian family as well and could never talk about anything I was dealing with. I am just not begining to embrace my abilities and see them as gifts and not curses. You are welcome to reach out anytime if you like. It’s always nice to have a kindred spirit to commune with.

      Rachel I just read your text. I honeslty thought there was something wrong with me. I dream of someone dieing and it actually happens. It happened so strong one time for me. I was never able to talk about it. I thought I was crazy. I’m glad I’m not the only one. Ever since that last time I have been trying to figure out why.

    I am a Nigerian, since my childhood I have been having very strange dreams of spirit beings, angels and demons too, they talk to me and give me information sometimes, other times they attack me. I am scared but I believe there’s more. Other times I have very strong intuition to know when something is about to happen in my family. I need answers, especially for my dreams where I have travelled to other countries and even to space. I am scared and I need answers…. Thank u

      You cannot be scared. The more scared you are the less likely you will travel to find the meaning and your inturpurtations of dreams. Embrace anything and everything that comes into your dream. Just go with it. If you fear it, seek it as an adventure.
      Your spirit is not supposed to easily slip in and out of dimensions, universes, astro project, etc. you have to prepare yourself. Once you are able to let go of all fear and trust in your mind, dont let it afraid to go places. You will learn so much about yourself, this world, everything will change. With practice it makes perfect. After a dozen times you will be able to control your spirit while your mind is at rest.

      I’m new to all this. I had a great great aunt who was accused to a witch because she could predict things in detail before it happens. I had not heard about her until my mother and sister woke up on the same night with a terrible feeling that something was wrong which was correct because someone had died that was very close to us. That’s when I first started hearing about how it’s believed you be a gift passed down through generations. Is this possible? Unlike my sister, mother, and great aunt I could never make predictions but spirits have been present my entire life along with almost every characteristic on this list. For a very long time I thought I was crazy because I seen things others couldn’t that’s why I came looking for this article. How can I be sure? Is it possible to be sure? I have so many questions

        Just because you have a psychic ability or are able to sense spirits doesn’t make you a witch. But it does give you abilities. You’d have other reasons to be a witch – a deep love for nature, interest in all things supernatural, alternative methods of healing, etc.

    I display characteristics of many of these, but by far the strongest is claircognizance. Over the years there have been many things I have just “known” and the skill is becoming stronger as I get older. I’ve learned to not over think things and just go with what I feel without question. As my relationship with the Universe evolves so does my level of inner peace and contentment.

    I, not knowing what it was at the time, started a grimoire when I was 15. It only has two spells in it, a fairy summoning spel I once saw in a book and really liked and an essential oil spell for love. I worked at a natural health pharmacy and took to essential oils and herbal health like a house on fire. I grew up in the country surrounded by nature and animals, especially cats. I also used to wake up with tiny spiders in my hair and my family and I like looking at the full moon. When I met my husband I was obsessed with trying to get his parents to like me. They loved my brother in law’s wife and I wanted their acceptance too so I tried to be like her, aka modern and materialistic. I became depressed because I felt lost. So recently I started a herb and veggie garden and addopted a few cats. Collected some candles, and dug out my old spell book. And I feel more centred than I have in a long time. Am I a natural witch?

          Just because you’re connected to animals and have abilities doesn’t make you a witch automatically. And being a witch isn’t a bad thing.

    For years I’ve thought I was just weird. I’ve always been the only person I knew who could control their dreams. Everyone told me I was crazy. I’ve been an eclectic pagan for 20 yrs. Can’t believe I’m just learning this. Think I’m going to put more focus and research into this. Thank you, Blessed Be
