What Witches Can Do to Remove Blocks to Great Health

Are you facing significant health problems?

I’ve learned a lot about the process of dealing with significant health situations. I’ve learned to drop 50 lbs.* so I have avoided going down the diabetes path on which my mother struggles.

I am doing well in working with asthma and clinical depression symptoms.

Here are some things I’ve discovered along the way …

  1. Recognize what you get from the physical illness

“What do you mean, what I get from the physical illness?” my friend, Penny, asked. “I am forced to be stuck in my bed. I’m in pain.”

I nodded. I remained quiet. She would see it, or she wouldn’t.

“Oh … If I’m sick, I don’t have to go back to my parents’ house for Christmas,” she said. Considering the abuse she endured, her body seemed to have given her the only “correct excuse” for not going back to her parents’ home like “a good girl.”

Every situation is unique. This depends on the individual and their situation. For example, I take appropriate medications for my medical issues. Look to get support from medical professionals and mental health professionals as needed.

How does this relate to us, Wiccans? If you’re not listening to your body, you might have trouble listening to the Goddess. What does this mean? Look at the whole situation. Do you need to devote significant effort or attention to your health? Is it time for you to stop toxic situations in your life? Sometimes, it’s as if your body says, “Wake up. This way of living is not good for you.”

I suggest that you take a whole-life view of health and wellness.

  1. Willpower is a lie.

This comment sounds extreme. How many times have you heard someone say, “I just have to have the willpower to stop ____?”

If you think willpower is simply a matter of gritting your teeth, clasping your hands together and saying, “No! I won’t do it!”—you might have a bumpy ride.

My own husband hides cookies out of his sight (in a cupboard). Why? Because it’s easy for a person to fall into a habit of “see cookie—eat cookie.”

He’s not trying to rely on “willpower.” Instead, he’s using a strategy.

I know from personal experience that simply setting up “rules” for a diet can result in failure. You make up rules, sometimes impossible rules, to live by.

And when we don’t live up to those rules, we get mad at ourselves. This approach to willpower does not work.

What does this mean for us, Wiccans? Let’s move beyond trying to use willpower to make sure that we do a ritual or be active with the Craft. Instead, aim for making ritual an organic part of your daily life. Perhaps, you’ll do a ritual in the first 15 minutes after dinner (This is similar to how my husband and I have a routine of going for a walk after dinner.)

  1. Do you want it bad enough? – Why?

I note two types of want – 1) Want to manifest something and 2) Want to throw out something.

How deep is your want? This relates to how we Wiccans manifest things via magick. We need a powerful desire to manifest what we want.

If you do not have the deep, powerful emotional connection, your spell is likely to fail. That’s harsh to know. Still, this knowledge can empower you.

When you do a ritual, be sure to tap into your Deep Want.
Here are examples:

  • I want to be healthy so I can enjoy years with a new romantic partner
  • I want to be healthy so I can avoid diabetes that runs in my family
  • I want to be able to move, so I do NOT run out of breath going up a flight of stairs*

In summary, take a whole-life view of your health and wellness.
We, Wiccans, are fortunate in that we can integrate our spirituality with our being healthy on the earthly plane.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Can Get Their Inner Critic to Shut Up

Do you beat yourself up emotionally? Perhaps, you’ve heard of the Inner Critic.

I have an Inner Critic. She is loud and sometimes in charge. So many times, this Inner Critic not only whispers in my ear but screams at the top of her lungs.

Sometimes, she says, “You’re no good.” Other times she says “You’re too fat … and too stupid.” Too often, this Inner Critic flings me into an overwhelming hopeless feeling.

Maybe, you can relate to this?

One time, when I was feeling particularly down, one of my friends said, “I get it. You have clinical depression symptoms. I’m just wondering if you have some part of you that stands to the side. A part of you that is not caught up in self-hatred. Do you have an … Inner Nurturer?”

What about an Inner Nurturer?

Before that moment, I had never heard this idea, Inner Nurturer. Just imagine, a part of yourself who is on your side. Your Inner Nurturer holds your hand through the tough times.

Maybe, my Inner Nurturer is mirroring what the Goddess would say to me.*

I was intrigued by this Inner Nurturer idea. So, I asked my friend to continue. He said, “It could be like this: Your Inner Critic is like a cup of inky water.  And, the Inner Nurturer helps you by filling the inky-water cup with clean spring water. Over time, the ink runs over the edge of the cup, and you’re left with the clean spring water.”

How Can We Fill Up with “Clean, Spring Water”?

I thought about my friend’s story and realized the Inner Nurturer is the Goddess and God.

We reach the God and Goddess through meditation, ritual, and prayer.

Many times, I have let the Inner Critic run my mind. The solution is for me to connect with the God and Goddess more often. More times for meditation, ritual, and prayer. Then, I can banish the Inner Critic—even for a short time.

May these ideas support you on your journey.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

Look at Your Life with Goddess’s Eyes

How is life going for you? Are you feeling pressured with work, family, friends, and personal pursuits?

If so, I’m with you. It can be hard to prioritize what to do when obligations weigh heavily on your shoulders.

Then, I had an intuitive nudge. It’s embodied in this question: How would Goddess help me prioritize for my enjoying a fulfilling life?”

  1. Goddess wants you to grow

Goddess wants all Her children to grow. This means learning our lessons and conquering our fears.

What kind of lessons? This varies by the individual. You set up your goals for your lessons before you were born. These lessons can be things like forgiveness, handling fear, or finding love for yourself.

  1. Goddess encourages you to prioritize your health and safety

I realize that I have sometimes, faltered about my own health. Sometimes, I’ve hesitated to go to the Emergency Room when my asthma was overwhelming.

How about you? Are you prioritizing your health? Good sleep, good nutrition, time devoted to nurturing your relationships …

Let’s remember that Goddess wants us to care for ourselves. After all, our bodies are the temples of the Gods. Goddess wants us to be healthy and happy while we are on this earth.

  1. Goddess wants a better connection with you

Sometimes, I get the impression that Goddess might say, “It’d be nice if you called once in a while.” How? We can do ritual and have meditation sessions to connect with the Goddess and God. Even a 5-minute meditation session is better than nothing.

Along these lines, my new book Goddess Has the Answers to Life’s Tough Problems just debuted on Amazon. CLICK HERE to “look inside” my 9th book. For many of us, “9” is a sacred number, and I feel great about this book! I know that many readers will find support to grow and pick up insights that we, Wiccans, have discovered over the decades.

How to Cleanse and Charge Your Crystals or Stones—a Wiccan Perspective

“Why would I want to cleanse and charge my crystals?” my friend, Sandra, asked.

“Because you want to get rid of negative energies. Then you can effectively work with your magickal items,” I replied.

Cleansing and charging your magickal items comprise a simple process.

You use blessed incense and holy water.

Cleanse and Charge a Crystal or Stone

What you will need:

  • The crystal or stone
  • Incense and an appropriate incense burner
  • Kosher salt
  • Bowl of spring water

Bless the Incense:

Hold your incense in your power hand, that is, your dominant hand

Say:

I bless this incense so that it is pure and clean, that it has the power to cleanse all that passes through its holy smoke.

Light your incense and say:

So mote it be.

 Bless the Salt:

Hold the salt in your power hand and say:

I bless this salt so that it is pure and clean. So mote it be!

Take three pinches of salt and sprinkle this amount in the spring water. Mix the salt and water with your index finger and say:

I bless this holy water so that it is able to cleanse all that it touches. So mote it be!

 Bless and Consecrate Your Crystal or Stone:

Asperge the item with the holy water and say:

I cleanse you of all negativity.

Next, waft the smoke (blessed incense) around your item and say:

I bless you for the good of all.

You have now cleansed and consecrated your object.

Note: Additionally, you can place your object somewhere safe to be further charged by the full moon.

May this process help you in your Wiccan practice.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater
