How Witches Uncover the Real Secret

Recently, I was studying The Charge of The Goddess, written by Doreen Valiente—in the voice of the Goddess.

“And thou who thinkest to seek for Me [the Goddess], know thy seeking and yearning shall avail thee not, unless thou know this mystery: that if that which thou seekest thou findest not within thee, thou wilt never find it without thee.” – Doreen Valiente writing in the voice of the Goddess

The above quote seized my attention. Why? Because the Gods are not separate from us. The God and Goddess are inside of us. Divinity is inside us.

So, if we’re feeling alone or afraid, we’re distracted from the essential truth that the Goddess wants us to know: She can be found within us. And Goddess Has Your Back.

I’ve found, many times, that when I’m meditating, I connect with the Goddess. At that moment, it’s a relief! It’s a connectedness.

One thing I’ve learned about meditation is: We need to practice. It’s like making a path in the jungle. The more you walk the path, the more you make it clear and unobstructed.

When you meditate often or blaze the trail often, it’s easier to connect with the Gods.

Witches know that the Real Secret is: Pursuing everything on the outside is not going to yield the peace you desire on the inside. So, go within … meditate.

May your path be unobstructed.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Connect with the Feeling of Wonder and Awe

“Oh, I don’t want to turn into my mother,” my friend, Anna, said.

“Anything in particular?” I asked.

“She’s so bitter. I even think she’s bored,” Anna replied.

During our conversation, I found myself thinking about a central choice we can make: fall into bitterness or stay open to new possibilities in life.

Here are three helpful insights:

  1. Looking at nature brings you in connection with the Gods

When I feel down and even feel a little bitter about life, I look to nature to reconnect with the Gods. When I look at a tree, I don’t just see a tree. I see a fellow being, traveling on this plane of existence.

It’s like a big neon sign saying that the Gods are here. They embrace me in feeling awe.

Think about it. Look at a leaf on a tree. It has a vascular system where nutrients flow into the tree. Each cell is working in harmony with the others, just like cells function in our own bodies. It is the blueprint of life; it is the blueprint of the Gods.

The tree is of the Gods. You and I are of the Gods.

  1. Listening to Music opens moments of connection

Take a moment to recall your favorite song or tune. Perhaps, this music fills you with energy or it’s just so beautiful that it takes you to a fragile moment.

We notice that music can invoke feelings of wonder, joy, sorrow, awe and more. When I listen to my favorite artists, they create a whole palette of feelings to paint my soul with. Such tones inspire an orgasmic plethora of emotions. With music, you can flow with the ecstasy of the God and Goddess.

  1. Opening the Door to Your Intuitive Flow

As an artist, I find that flow, is the Gods expressing joy through me. That sacred connection is the God and Goddess expressing Their life force through me.

Even if you do not call yourself an artist, you are creating every day. You create a flow of activities. You find some way to fit in people you care about while you fulfill the obligations you have. You create and participate in life.

You even create the situations that bring you some good feelings—perhaps, pulling together a good mix of friends for an enjoyable meal. Notice that when you make space for your intuitive flow, the Gods guide you with gentle nudges.

May these ideas open new pathways for you.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

Don’t Psyche Yourself Out Related to Magick

Looking shaken, my friend, Tracey, walked up to me.

“My prosperity spell went upside down. I even lost money,” she said.

I put my hand on her shoulder. “I hear you,” I began. This was the start of a valuable conversation about magick and avoiding the mistake of psyching yourself out.

Here are three insights:

  1. Beware of getting stuck in “I wonder if this will work?”

You probably have had an experience when you were focused and in the moment. It can happen while playing cards or in a basketball game. People say, “I just kept winning over and over.”

That’s a great state of being to be in. That’s the opposite of being psyched out.

We can psyche ourselves out related to magick when we let the idea “I wonder if this will work?” to take over. Doubt kills magick. If you doubt yourself and your capabilities, this will affect the power of your ritual. When you doubt, you put up a wall between you and what you desire. You’re sabotaging your own efforts.

The solutions for this situation include—first, devote meditation sessions in which you imagine and experience your goal as having already come true. Second, work with an elder. Perhaps, start small, and you’ll develop some evidence that you are getting better with magick. An elder can lead you through exercises.

  1. Don’t tell others about your magick

Watch out that people can fill you with doubt because doing effective magick is completely outside their understanding. They may fear the process you’re in. Some people even mock what they don’t understand. Additionally, doubters can block your magick with their negative energy.

  1. Beware of the psyche out element of making you feel small and powerless

When I looked up details about psyche out, I came across a story about a boxer who uses belittling taunts to psyche out his opponent. It bothers me to say: part of me, the Inner Critic, psyched me out several times.

At least now, I’m paying attention. When I have psyche out thoughts or doubt-filled thoughts, I pause and look for a positive thought to hold front and center. For example, when I had a big disaster with a hard drive (I must have brushed a trouble-making key), I shifted away from “I’m an idiot!” to “It was an accident. I’ll check cnet.com for recovery software.”

Similarly, you can choose your own positive thought to hold front and center.

May these insights help you along your journey.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Change for the Better

“Oh, dear Gods, I’m an idiot!” I said. Out loud. Why? Because I had tried to reformat a thumb drive, but I possibly brushed a key and … The computer reformatted the main hard drive!

Disaster. Years of data gone!

Instantly, I was absolutely furious with myself.

Later, after calming down and beginning a 26-hour ordeal of working to get some of my data back, I thought about how I’d like to change for the better. I’d like to stop beating myself up emotionally.

Have you thought about how you could do better if you could make a healthy change?

I went on a quest to learn about change.

These two quotes seized my attention:

“The greatest and most important problems of life are all fundamentally insoluble. They can never be solved but only outgrown.” – Carl Jung

“… let there be beauty and strength, power and compassion, honour and humility, mirth and reverence within you.” – Doreen Valiente writing in the voice of the Goddess—in The Charge of The Goddess

I had a couple of insights about changing for the better.

  1. Develop Calm Acceptance

At a certain point, after the hard drive disaster happened, I shifted to a moment when I told myself, “It’s gone. All I can do is recover what I can.” From this moment, I experienced a bit of calm acceptance. Then, I started to methodically lookup on cnet.com the possible software program I could get to recover the data.

  1. Pray to the Gods

I prayed, “Dear Gods, help me find a way to recover the data. Stay with me through the process.” The Goddess talks about combinations like “honor and humility.” I’m reminded of how we can all make mistakes, and compassion is necessary.

I also learned something else. It’s good to develop a “Big Trouble Tool Kit.” Recently, I was reflecting on this situation, and I realized that I didn’t think to do a Candle Lighting Ritual. It would have been good for me to have something written down. It reminds me of “In case of fire, break glass.”

So, in case of big trouble, here is a Candle Lighting Ritual Prayer:

Dear Gods, I feel devastated.
Guide me on the path to calm acceptance.
Guide me to take appropriate actions
For a better outcome than I can see now.
Thank You.
So Mote It Be.

May this process support you.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater
