Hi there....thank you for your question, as this one really got me thinking.
Can other people tell we are witches, even before we tell them? And how? How do they know...?
Now somebody who isnt a witch, has recognised you as one. This raises a few questions of my own which may change the context of your question.
Firstly, how do you know that they aren't a witch? For all you
know they could be just like you, not showing the world their gifts or beliefs, for many reasons. Did they tell you they are not a practising witch or have you assumed that they are not?
Who told you about this non witch knowing about your magickal side? as you say in your full question "I was told that a 'non' person knew I was a witch'. How does the person who told you, know this other person is a 'non' witch? Do they know them? Could they have mentioned something in a conversation
about yourself, not in a gossipy way of course, but I myself know how easily things can slip into conversations that don't seem too important, but can be. Could this
'non' witch have heard in passing about you, maybe within the witchy community, or possiby seen you at a witchy event/gathering, which would all point towards you
havin an interest of some kind in this path? There are lots of ways that they could have found out. But as you have asked, lets look at the possibility of somebody
who isn't a witch...'knowing' that you are one, without being told so.
Last night I asked a very close friend of mine what it is about me that makes it obvious that I am a witch? (aside from my pentagram hanging at my throat) and their
answer floored me! they told me that they had always known, that even when I kept it all a secret and didnt tell anybody about any of it, that it was obvious. They
said that there had always been 'something' about me that was different to other people they knew. that I always seemed to know when things werent right with them
or when they needed help, and I always knew what to do or say. they said I 'felt' different to them than other people, that when they are around me they feel calmer,
happier and more positive about things that are happening within their lives. they also said sometimes being around me is like having a shot of energy drink! because
they could be in a mood and not feel very good about themselves, but then when I get there, they said its like everything gets brighter and they lose all the moodyness
and begin to feel like they could take on anything! this all shocked me, as I had no idea that just by being around my friend, I was effecting them like this. (but at
least it was all positive). After speaking to my friend I decided to ask some fellow witches what their take on this was. what did they think about other people who
might not be witches, being able to figure them out without anything being said. most of the people I spoke with all said the same things....our Energy is different to
people who don't practice magick often, that as we are more intune with the gifts we have, we kind of outwardly project this 'intunement' without realisinng we are
doing so. That we give off this 'Aura' of otherworldlyness, of being wiser than we appear and pretty much giving off a magickal feeling. it i hard to put it all into
words, as describing a feeling is not easy at all...but they all said pretty much the same things....that people have just been able to 'sense' that we are different
or sometimes the things that wew have done, have pointed it out a little. kind of like knowing who will call before they do or getting those 'gut' feelings that there
is something wrong with what you or friends are doing so you tell them to go somewhere else or do smethning else, which leads to them missing being caught in a traffic
accident, or hurting themselves in a freak accident! all these things point towards us being a teeny bit witchy....and as witchcraft has become more accepted within
the world now, and is mentioned all over books and magazines and the internet, it is easy for somebody to look at us and 'connect the dots'.
if you are not ready for other people to know about you being a witch then maybe you could speak with this person and politely ask them not to mention it to anybody
(well, thats if you have confirmed your witchy status to them that is) also I would suggest speakingh with the person who it was that told youu about it also, so that
you can be fully sure of what was said within the conversation and also that this person isnt going to tell other people without your knowledge or consent too.
But...from speaking with others....it is apparently not what we say or do particularly that kind of gives us away as witches.....its the Energies and Aura that we give
off! so we are pretty much unable to fully hide who we are, even when we try to!
I hope this helps! and feel free to contact me again if you need any more help/advise!
