Witches Explore Details about Goddess Brigid

Have you heard about how Goddess Brigid is worshipped during Imbolc?

She is known for her hospitality, healing powers, and feeding a lot of people.

Recently, I have been studying details about her. I realize that many Witches might focus on Goddess Brigid more during the time of Imbolc.

I had a thought that we can celebrate Goddess Brigid by emphasizing these elements in our own daily life.

  1. Hospitality

Brigid is known for her hospitality. The well-known Celtic tradition of hospitality includes how a householder was bound to offer food and drink to anyone who came to their home.

How can we bring this into our lives?

Hospitality can be demonstrated in how we talk on the phone and how we share ideas or resources (even links to helpful articles).

You can demonstrate kindness and generosity to family members and friends.

If you live with family members or a roommate, you can bring their favorite food to the dinner table.

In your own spiritual rituals, you can set a small plate at the head of the table for the God and Goddess.

You and your family may sit down and call on the God and the Goddess to be present. Serve the Gods first by placing food on the Their plate at the head of the table. While doing so, say thank you to the Gods for something that They have given your family.

  1. Healing Powers

Brigid has been called a master of healing. You can honor her by making sure you have the resources for healing. Getting appropriate sleep and eating nutritious foods will help you. Perhaps, you’ll take a daily walk to keep your body functioning well. Healing also arises from filling your thoughts with positive input. Minimize your interaction with negative media and social media. Consider adding meditation to your daily routine.

  1. Feeding people

In a number of accounts, Brigit is known for her powers of providing large amounts of things like bacon, butter, and milk. She turned well water into beer.

You might consider donating food to a local food bank.

Perhaps, you might honor Brigid by focusing on hospitality, healing powers, and feeding people.

May these insights support your journey of life.

Blessed Be,

How to Un-hex Yourself

Have you felt unfairly burdened?

Some people even feel hexed or cursed. What is worse is that some people have cursed themselves with no knowledge of how they did it.

Have you experienced bullying and hard times growing up?

Have you had a hard time since then? Perhaps, you’ve had a run of bad luck or you’ve felt the effects of depression or anxiety.

You may have hexed yourself.

This means a lot to me because I went through horrible things as a child. I was teased and beaten. Even though these things were done to me, my child-level brain converted the situation into self-hate. In effect, I accidentally hexed myself based on the terrible treatment I endured.

Is it possible that you have hexed yourself because of the terrible treatment you have endured?

You can use the following un-hexing spell to improve your journey through life.

Un-Hexing Spell

What you will need.

  • One reversal candle (Black on White)
  • Shot glass
  • Some rum, bourbon, or vodka*

(* If alcohol is not part of your life, you can choose some substitute.)

When to do it.
During the waning moon.

Ground and center. Once you have stilled your mind, ask the Gods to come to you. Feel Their love for you. Feel the truth that you are loved.

Pour your liquor into your shot glass. Light your reversal candle.

Say something like the following:

Now is my time to be un-hexed.
My path is clear and un-perplexed.
My history goes round and round,
My dignity sacred and sound.
Here I rise up and take a stand,
My line is drawn across the sand.
Courage and spirits uplifted,
My consciousness is now shifted

Notice any weight you feel in your soul. Now feel that weight lift off your soul. You’re now free of that weight.

Hold your shot glass of liquor. Blow (with your breath) across the liquor. (This charges the liquid.)

Place your shot glass back on the altar.

Continue by saying something like:

I am free, strong, and un-hexed.
Love and life that’s not complex,
Freedom I know inside me.
As I so will, so mote it be.

Let the candle burn itself out. (Avoid leaving an untended candle burning.)

Then drink the liquor and feel the power of the spell pass down and through your body.


May this spell support you and your strength of character. Be yourself and love yourself as the Gods love you.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Deal with Not Finding a Coven or Mentor at this Moment

Have you lost hope of getting a mentor or finding a coven to join? When I was starting my journey with witchcraft, I couldn’t find a coven or a teacher. I felt a loss of hope.

Here are three insights from my journey that may help you.

  • Start as a Solitary Witch

Start as a solitary witch and dedicate yourself to the Gods. That’s what I did.

I didn’t know where to start so I went into a bookstore and asked about the topic Wicca. (Now, we can go to Amazon. To be helpful, I’ve written 9 books)

I studied over a period of years. When I felt I was ready, I did a meditation. And the Gods made Their Presence known to me.

  • Talk with the Gods

During my meditation, I talked with the God and the Goddess and told Them my plight.

“When you are ready, the teacher will appear,” They replied.

This bothered me because I felt I was ready. However, with that response, I proved I wasn’t.

The Gods are wise, and I respect Their timing.

So, I continued practicing. I continued doing my own rituals, prayers, and chants.

The Gods have Their reasons. The Gods have more information than we do. Because of this, They know what is ahead on our paths before we do. They know what is in our best interest.

  • Keep Looking for Possibilities

Years later after that meditation session of asking the Gods for a mentor, I found one.

I moved to a new neighborhood, and there was my mentor. Soon, I was accepted into a coven.

In a coven and with a mentor, I discovered so much that was new to me.

Here is the truth: So much of the Craft is not written in books. The things one learns person-to-person are, to a great extent, oath-bound. That means that one is guided to leave such material out of books.

True dedication to the Craft is a life path. You grow into it. With a mentor and a coven, I learned the secrets of the Craft. Many times, I had experiences that were true revelations to me. And my practice grew!

Perhaps, the Gods wanted me to grow into the person who would truly understand and appreciate the secrets of the Craft. These secrets have a certain element of power connected to them. They must be shared with wise, dedicated people.

My years of solitary practice demonstrated my dedication and devotion.

So, keep practicing and show the God and the Goddess that you are serious, dedicated, and devoted.

May these insights support you on your journey.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Make Space for Simple Pleasures

Have you been busy recently and that has crowded out taking time for simple pleasures in life?

Simple pleasures can include slowing down, sipping, and enjoying a latte. Or relaxing outside with a good book and some wine or tea.

“…all acts of love and pleasure are My rituals. And therefore, let there be beauty and strength, power and compassion, honor and humility, mirth and reverence within you.” – Doreen Valiente, writing in the voice of the Goddess, in The Charge of the Goddess

Goddess gives us a whole spectrum of simple pleasures to consider.

Here are three insights:

  1. Open your awareness to a simple pleasure

I like taking a ritual bath. I’ve noticed that I have not made space for it. Soaking in water also causes skin difficulties for me, which would require me to take extra steps to protect my skin. My point is that I need to start with awareness and make space so I can take the time to focus on my needs and to connect with the Gods.

  1. Learn and rehearse saying No

If you’re constantly saying yes to other people, you won’t be able to fit in something that means a lot to your heart.

Lacey, a friend, always used to say yes when people asked her to do things. Because of this, she never had time for herself, and she ran herself into the ground.

Learning to say no is a good thing, and it’s part of setting healthy boundaries.

Setting boundaries in how you use your time and energy can help you save yourself from grief and trouble.

You could say something like: “That sounds like it’s a good project. My plate is full at this time. And I’m taking better care of myself. So, I’ll have to say no to participating in your project.”

Witches can realize that when you say no to one thing, you open your ability to say yes to prayer and ritual so you can communicate with the Gods.

Saying no helps you free up time for your own sanity. You can do meditation, ritual, or simply rest and just be—in the moment.

  1. Schedule time to be present with the Gods

Imagine communicating with the God and the Goddess. You can do this with meditation, doing ritual, or doing some sort of service in Their names.

You could volunteer, perhaps, at an animal shelter. This can be doing the work of the Gods, which can bring you into a closer relationship with Them. Or perhaps, you’ll take a walk in a park or somewhere that you can enjoy nature. The Gods are present with you in nature.

Each day, I devote myself to a short meditation session. That’s when I relax and talk to my God and Goddess about the day’s activities. I even ask for guidance.

Simple pleasures provide us with valuable support we need.

Imagine that you were supporting your best friend. You would likely say, “You love taking a ten-minute break with your latte. You deserve it. In fact, when we talk on the phone after your latte-break, you sound full of life. It’s worth it.”

Simple pleasures also help you show up better for your time to honor your Gods. The Gods placed divinity within you. They want you to support the divine flame in you. Ask Them for guidance about the blessed opportunities for simple pleasures in your life.

May these insights support your journey.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Feel Their Feelings and Grow

“It hurts too much. If I just had the right spiritual thoughts, couldn’t I just avoid this pain?” my friend, John, asked.

“I hear you. You’re hurting bad. I want to skip pain, too. But I learned about something called a spiritual bypass,” I replied.

Recently, I came across this quote:

“Spiritual bypass shields us from the truth. It disconnects us from our feelings and helps us avoid the big picture. It is more about checking out than checking in.” – Ingrid Clayton, psychologist

I realize that, many times, I’d like to avoid feeling pain. But if I try to just shift to the “higher point of view,” I may be denying something real … that I have felt a loss and the pain is something I just need to experience.

For example, I lost Steve, a dear friend who passed away. I didn’t sit in the grief. I tried to shift to thinking he was in a better place and that was it. But I never truly dealt with the feelings of loss. That is, until I shifted back to my grief and felt it fully and explored what was going on with my feelings. I honored the pain of the loss. In this way, I processed it in a healthy way.

I have three insights about grief, loss and how to grow.

1.Say something aloud about your feelings.

I have learned that talking to a friend and saying aloud how I feel about something is truly healing. It helps take the burden off my back. If you are the friend, just listen. You don’t have to fix it.

2.Ask the Gods for clarity

Doing meditation can help, too. By going into meditation, you can ask the Gods to help you understand the reasons and situations that led to the loss. You can ask for healing. The Gods are great listeners.

“There is no coming to consciousness without pain. People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own Soul.” – Carl Jung

It is true that in witchcraft we strive to know one’s self.

Knowing yourself is the true focus of the Craft. Knowing how you deal with loss can be a big step to understanding you.

3.Express the Feel It and Move Forward Prayer

Here is a prayer to help.

The Feel It and Move Forward Prayer

Lord and Lady help me dig deep.
Light the way to all that I seek.
My feelings now I do give space,
To feel it all and weigh my case.
Give me light on my path to peace,
To help me move on in one piece.
Stitch by stitch mend my broken heart.
With Your support, I make my start
As I So Will, So Mote It Be.

May this prayer help you heal and continue growing on your journey.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater
