    It all depends what branch of witchcraft you are studying/practicing these days. In some circles Traditional Oath-Bound Wicca stuff has lost it's influence. In my opinion it's because a lot of it doesn't translate well today. People are choosing different types of witchcraft with different original sources. (ie Traditional Witchcraft variations that draw on Folklore)

    Well that is good to know, it has been a while since my Searching days.

  2. I may be stirring the pot here, and I do not mean to, but do Wiccans still read Raymond Bucklands "Complete Book of Witchcraft" (The Big Blue Book)?  It was one of the many books I read as I was searching. Another was A Witches Bible, by Stewart Farrar.  Both gave the basics of Ritual, and the like. The latter book was a bit over my head at the time I read it, but there was good information contained in both, if one is searching.

  3. I prefer the term paranormal, meaning outside of what we know as "normal" . Spirits, ghosts (I feel that there is a distinction of the two terms) demons, djinn, fae, etc, would fall into my idea of paranormal. The temr supernatural, in my opinion would be reserved for things like Deity (and if this is what was what the op was referring to, then I stand corrected.)
