Oppression and the Pagan Path

Have you recently felt the pain of oppression in your life? We, witches, often see how other people’s intolerance results in unfairness and worse toward Pagans.

When any government, or any church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, this you may not read, this you must not see, this you are forbidden to know, the end result is tyranny and oppression no matter how holy the motives.
– Robert A. Heinlein

With today’s political and religious climate, oppression seems to be the norm. Racism, sexism, and religious prejudice apparently surround us.

Have you noticed any intolerance in our own community of witches?

Racism

One year, at a certain Pagan festival, I heard someone express racist comments in the hallway of the host hotel. This made me feel truly uncomfortable. I even felt anger rising up.

I can’t even imagine being someone of color hearing such garbage! My own husband is a person of color, and we have had discussions about this topic.

What is going on here? We, witches, already know oppression. Why would any of us feel okay about expressing oppression within our own ranks?

As witches, we understand being oppressed. We remember the Burning Times. With the atrocities, the Church drove the Craft underground.

With our community still bleeding from such oppression, why would any of us be okay with oppressing another person? If I could talk to the person who expressed these racist comments I would say, “We are all children of the God and Goddess. They love us all, that’s right, all! Remember, we are all part of the Gods, and, the Gods are part of us. There is no color in the God’s and Goddess’s eyes. We are one!”

Sexism

The overwhelming misogyny of the Burning Times is plain to see.

However, misogyny continues today. It’s reported that women only earn $0.79 to every dollar that men earn. Why is this tolerated?

While I was reflecting on this, I realized something startling. In modern witchcraft, it appears that men are being marginalized. Many of us realize that “witch” is a term for both men and women. However, many people have the mistaken notion that a male witch is a “warlock” (wrong!). The word “warlock” is only used for people who break their oaths. And many male witches consider it a derogatory term, which it is. So, please don’t call someone a warlock.

Think about it. It’s October, and you go into your favorite costume shop and look for a witch costume. Have you ever seen a male witch costume? I know I haven’t.

Keep in mind that a male witch is just as important as female witches. Remember that the Goddess gets all Her power from the God. The God lays all His power at the feet of the Goddess because He knows She is just and fair.

Religious Prejudice

In the Burning Times, not only did our community face misogyny, anyone who thought differently than the Church was in jeopardy. This meant you could be charged for heresy if anyone heard your opinion and reported it.

Mostly women were affected, but men were also accused and killed (hanged/burned). Whole towns were wiped off the map during the Burning Times. Some have reported that leaders during the Burning Times used the accusations of heresy as a pretext to fulfill their political aims.

Even now, many of us stay in the broom closet. Why? Hatred toward witches persists to this day.

Many of us stay hidden because we don’t want to be targeted by others’ hatred.

There are forms of oppression and domination which become invisible—the new normal. – Michel Foucault

This isn’t just the witch thing either. It’s also a race thing, and a sexism thing. It’s oppression in its many forms.

As Witches, what do we do when oppression is expressed in our own community?

As witches, we need to reach out with understanding in our hearts.

Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding. – Albert Einstein

Compassion is more important than intellect in calling forth the love that the work of peace needs, and intuition can often be a far more powerful searchlight than cold reason. Betty Williams

So how do we reach understanding and compassion? With the God and Goddess, that’s how.

Through meditation and ritual, the Gods can help us look within and discover the truth.

That truth is that we are all connected, both to the Gods and to each other. We are all equal in the light of the Gods. We may look different, have different abilities, and have different personalities; but we all are one.

Even though, in many ways, we cannot control our world leaders and the destructive cultural pressures around us, we can hold our own culture to a higher standard.

Lead with love and compassion towards others.

So, when you look into the eyes of a stranger, see yourself, see the God, and see the Goddess.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How You Can Change and Release Yourself from Being Stuck – A Wiccan Solution

 

Have you had moments, like me, of thinking, “Change is hard.”

I like this quote:

“Magic is natural. It is a harmonious movement of energies to create needed change.”

– Scott Cunningham

This idea “magic is natural” can transform how you look at change.

Recently, I realized that the path of “harmonious movement of energies to create needed change” is a path that focuses on the pentagram and the 4 Elements plus Spirit.

As Wiccans we can use the Elements in magick to help us. Each Element is a step toward change.

In the process, each Element serves as a step to the next one.

  1. Air

The first step for making real change relates to the Element Air. Air represents thought. We need to know that we truly want to change in the first place.

Wanting change is not enough. In order to create real change, we need to know that change is needed in our life. This knowing helps us make a real commitment.

Simply wishing for change does not get you where you need to go.

Begin with the idea and firm it up. An idea is a powerful thing. Just like a seed has the potential to grow into a beautiful rose, an idea can manifest into something great.

A well-formed idea includes specifics. You want a target that is sharp like a tack. Something you can measure and see. I will use my weight loss of 42.3 lbs. as an example during this post.

In January, my doctor told me I needed to lose the weight. Now, usually just telling someone to lose weight doesn’t work. They need to want to lose the weight. They need to want to make a permanent change in their life. So where could I begin?

Meditation served as my starting point.

Try it. Burn some incense and meditate on your idea. (By the way, burning incense relates to the Element of Air.)

During meditation, let your mind flow. Ultimately, you take that vague idea you have and shape it into a solid idea.

Losing weight was too vague of a target for me. So, I brought it down to a solid number. I wanted to lose five pounds. That’s it. Just five pounds. It’s something small, measurable, and it can be recorded by tracking my weight on a scale.

  1. Fire

Having a firm idea is a good start. But you need the Element of Fire to get your will into the process. Fire helps give you that push, that extra oomph.

Fire gives you the passion to fulfill your idea.

Use passion to help you form a plan of action. For example, my plan was to focus on dropping five pounds. Using the passion of Fire, I did a Weight Loss Spell:

What you will need:

  • One seven knob, green candle
  • Banishing oil
  • Candleholder
  • Lighter

Warning: Be sure to do this spell during the waning moon.

Cast the Circle.

Cleanse and consecrate the oil and candle. Set the candle in its holder. Sit and meditate on your losing weight. See the candle as a representation of the excess weight. When you’re ready, light the candle and say three times:

Little knobbed candle of green,
With powers, great and unseen.

I light you in the vast darkness so,
Illuminate health for me to know.
Bad eating habits and lethargy, I rip out
Of my life within and without!
Let this my prayer be answered now! 

I pray that you will, I pray that you must,
For me to lose weight high water or bust!
As you my little green candle melts,
So too does my weight and waistline melt.
So mote it be!

Now sit and meditate on losing weight until the first knob is burned completely. Then put out the candle with a snuffer.

Repeat above spell for the next six days.

Do the Cakes and Wine Ceremony.
Close the Circle.

Taking action is a great step. Next, you’ll need to marshal positive emotion.

  1. Water

The Element of Water is associated with emotion. We’ve progressed from idea to passion to a plan of action.

Now, let’s be sure that you keep yourself emotionally healthy during the process.

Losing five pounds was all and good, but I could derail my efforts if I drove myself nuts trying to be perfect. To take care of myself emotionally, I created a tool for myself—the Goddess Style Weight Loss method. (See below for my Online Course Goddess Style Weight Loss.)

Take your plan of action and make a tool/method to help you emotionally.

Consider:

  • A weekly meeting with a friend to “rally the troops” and to keep you strong and consistent in your efforts
  • A pamper yourself day to help keep you calm. Or one simple, nurturing action just for you: like getting a massage once a week.

Consider the possibility of getting pastoral counseling from a fellow Priest or Priestess. Your fellow Priest of Priestess has a unique insight into your journey as a Pagan. This can be especially helpful. Doing a ritual together can be just what’s needed to have you move forward faster.

In some cases, working with a therapist related to emotional healing can help you stay on track. You may not realize that a past trauma may be influencing your behavior. I found that working with a therapist helped me deal with details from my past.

  1. Earth

Stay grounded through the Element of Earth.

Part of grounding is to keep silent about your plans when in the presence of naysayers. Guard your energy against intrusions by naysayers, who can ruin one’s magick work.

Imagine that you ground your plan of action into reality. Take the seed of your plan and plant it in the earth.

Let your seed of intention grow strong and create the change you desire.

At the core of Wicca—it is a joyous union with nature. The Earth is a manifestation of divine energy. – Scott Cunningham

This leads right into Spirit.

  1. Spirit

Spirit is an essential facet of your journey to create positive change.

With Air, Fire, Water, and Earth, you have stepped into a new life. You’re using the tools of change.

The last step is Spirit in which you manifest a permanent, positive change.

If that which thou seekest thou findest not within thee, thou wilt never find it without thee. – written in the voice of the Goddess (found in The Charge of The Goddess by Doreen Valiente)

Your Spirit is within you, always. Your Spirit is your true connection with the God and Goddess.

Change fundamentally comes from within. When we do our magick and create change, we don’t necessarily change the outer world, but we really change our inner world.

So, what do you want to change in your life?

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

The Wiccan Secret to Really Enjoying Your Life

Gourds

Ever hear someone say something that just sticks with you?

A mentor of mine said, “If you don’t devote yourself to the seasons in your life, you could let yourself fall into needless misery.”

At the time, I thought I got what he meant. Since that time, some other ideas have risen in my thoughts.

The Time of Harvest Is Here

As witches know, now is the season of harvest. Mabon just passed, and we are reaping the bounty of the earth with all its produce. But it’s not just the bounty of the earth that we can be harvesting at this time.

A number of Wiccans I know sowed magick spells at earlier times this year. It’s as if the multiple sessions of doing spells were like tending one’s garden. Wiccans traditionally start in the Spring and work on our magickal goals at that time. Working and watching until Fall, we see how all our hard work pays off.

Recently, I have been doing just that, harvesting. I’ve experienced a major shift personally, and it has invigorated how I serve others, too.

January 1st, I started a new lifestyle with how I eat, connect with the Goddess and let go of excess weight. I let go of 36.8 lbs. permanently and this journey inspired my book this year titled Goddess Style Weight Loss.

Later, I was up to 40 lbs. dropped from my body. And I realized that many of my circle would do even better with 5 weeks of support through my having an Online Course “Goddess Style Weight Loss.”

Here’s a Secret: Start where you are. Start with what your heart and what the Gods call you to do.

On January 1st, I just focused on opening a new chapter of life for me—for my own health. Now, God and Goddess are guiding me to expand how I help others.

What About You? What New Chapter Awaits You in Life?

Let’s come back to the idea of seasons. January was not a season for me to consider new projects. January was the season for me to take care of my health. Realize there are seasons in which we sow seeds, tend the garden, and later enjoy the harvest. Certainly, you’ll need to plant for new growth at some point, too.

Sadness and Feeling of Depression without Your Passion

Perhaps, you’re in a season in which sadness feelings are more visible.

Some people make their lives tougher. How? They have a lamentable story: “Oh, I don’t feel passion in my life. Passion is for other people. You know—all those movie stars, best-selling authors, business people. I’m just somebody who’s trying to get through the day.”

It’s just a story, my friend.

Reach out to the God and Goddess. You do not need to make a production of it. The God and Goddess greet you in whatever season you find yourself in.

An important point: Your Seasons may not follow the calendar year.

The God and Goddess guided me this year.

Some years ago, I didn’t know the God and Goddess. My depression symptoms ran my life. I had no passion. I was unhappy and lost in my emotions. Having nothing to reach for, I spiraled and sank deeper into the land of sadness, loneliness, and self-hate.

Then, I began a process of studying books on Wicca, meditating and conducting ritual as a solitary witch. Things shifted into a higher gear when I joined a coven.

You see, I am passionate about my relationship with the God and Goddess. They are now such an intricate part of my life. When I found the Gods, things changed. And I started to sow new life into my existence.

Having some passion in my life kept me from spiraling out of control.

I invite you to dive in and engage with your Wiccan practice. Find some passion for yourself.

 

Happiness Can Rise At Any Time – It’s Not Like Waiting for Summer

Remember as a child being desperate for the school year to end? Come on, Summer! Twenty minutes left of the last class. What’s wrong with that clock! The big hand is not moving!

Some of us live as if happiness is this unknown island in the mist of the future.

What is happiness? Surely, it’s different for different people.

I’ve learned, for me, it’s appreciating some cozy moments of each day.

Perhaps, the problem is: Many of us are looking for a fictional time when everything goes smoothly.

Instead …

A friend shared with me a quote:

“We do not remember days, we remember moments.” – Cesare Pavese

I invite you to reach to the God and Goddess and to develop more happy moments in each day.

The God and Goddess give us all sorts of opportunities throughout the whole year. So, don’t be shy on grabbing them. Keep in mind that the Gods are helping you by offering you opportunities to grow. Also, some opportunities don’t look like opportunities. Then come in the clothes of trouble or even hardship. But they will help you grow.

Remember, each of us lives in seasons: time to sow, to tend the garden, and to enjoy the harvest.

So, don’t let opportunities slip away. Grab them!

Grab them and follow your bliss.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

P.S. It is with gratitude for Goddess that I now offer Goddess Style Weight Loss Online Course. See this 1.3 min video.

You will learn to provide yourself with comfort in ways that connect you with Goddess. You will transform your journey so you let go of “being big” to be safe.

Keep from Spiraling Down into a Low Mood – A Wiccan Solution

“Are you keeping up? Look what the administration is doing that’s hurting Mother Earth!” my friend, Jeff, said. “I can’t help it. With looking at the world and how I’m getting pushed around at work, my mood is lower than low. I’ve hit bottom.”

Perhaps, you can relate to Jeff’s concerns.

Have you ever woken up in the morning and just didn’t want to face the day and all its problems?

Maybe you’re emotionally exhausted. A number of my Wiccan friends say, “Every time I see any broadcast news, I feel drained.”

Are you feeling sad? Feeling sad is normal. A rough day or a rough patch of life can inspire sad feelings. We are not going to try to put a bow or happy face on feeling sad. The idea is: You can experience some sadness and then, at times, shift into another state of being.

Three Steps to Help You Climb Out of a Low Mood

  1. Listen to Music – Chant – Sing

A big depression symptom that can knock me down is: Feeling that I have no energy. Sure, I know that if I could get myself to a coffee shop and sit with a friend, we’d have a good time talking. But the problem is that I feel that I have no energy. I’m having trouble getting out of bed.

What can we do?

Listen to music. In three clicks or less, you’re listening to music. You could sing along.

Or you could do a bit of personal chanting or singing. You don’t have to have great talent to do this. Just light a candle and express yourself. It helps.

The point is that music can lessen the burdens in your heart.

While listening to your preferred music, you could dance! Moving your body helps get the blood flowing and can shake out a bad mood.

Consider taking a walk while chanting, humming, or singing.

  1. Meditate or Pray (Talk to the God and Goddess)

A version of an old phrase is: “When you meditate, you listen to Deity. When you pray, you talk to Deity.”

Many of us Wiccans choose to connect with the Goddess. We pick a God or Goddess with whom we resonate.

Certain types of meditation can also help you beat a bad mood. Especially if you’re subject to self-deprecating thoughts.

However, some people have hesitations about meditation. They find it tough to sit in silence with their thoughts. Is that you?

My mother has to have the T.V. on as soon as she gets up until bedtime. Why? Because she desperately does not want to have silence and hear her own thoughts. She is so unhappy that staying in her own thoughts troubles her greatly. She needs a pacifier of the T.V. to distract her from her thoughts.

A Solution If You’re Afraid of Disturbing Thoughts During Meditation

Focus on a phrase that uplifts your heart. I use this phrase: “I am the Gods’ Love; I am the Gods’ Light.” I use this phrase for a mantra.

  1. Call Appropriate Friends – Get Outside

I’ve heard friends who deal with depression-symptoms say, “I’m a real actor. I pretend that I’m okay when I feel horrible.” So, at times, it feels like we can’t call people because we’re afraid of “bringing them down, too.”

Think about which friend is someone you don’t have to pretend with. Talking with a good friend can reduce stress and, for females especially, can create oxytocin, known as the bonding hormone. This hormone helps you feel safe and bonded into your personal community.

Wiccans need our community to feel heard and to feel we have a common identity. Talking to people in our personal witch/pagan community can lift your mood.

Wiccans talking and listening to each other is vital because there are times when some of us may be targeted with disdain or even hate. Find someone who will support you.

I’ve noticed that it is good to realize that you can have different “levels” of friends. Some friends are stronger and closer. They can be good listeners to your difficulties. They can give you the support you need. And they are there when you need them.

Also, just getting out of your home into the sun may be just what you need. Especially during the dark half of the year. Get some fresh air, and it’s better with a friend than without.

 ** Depression Symptoms Can Be an Alert to Other States of Being – Clinical Depression and S.A.D.

Those of us who deal with Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) find that this requires treatments like light therapy (phototherapy), psychotherapy and medications. Those who deal with SAD need to check with medical professionals.

The Mayo Clinic reports: “Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is a type of depression that’s related to changes in seasons — SAD begins and ends at about the same times every year. If you’re like most people with SAD, your symptoms start in the fall and continue into the winter months, sapping your energy and making you feel moody. Less often, SAD causes depression in the spring or early summer.”

There are other forms of depression, too. In these cases, you need to consult medical professionals for help.

About Clinical Depression

Every day, I deal with the symptoms of clinical depression. The Mayo Clinic reports:
“Depression is a mood disorder that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest. Also called major depressive disorder or clinical depression, it affects how you feel, think and behave and can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems. You may have trouble doing normal day-to-day activities, and sometimes you may feel as if life isn’t worth living.”

A “Combination Approach” to Dealing with Symptoms of Clinical Depression

I deal with all of the above problems. I have been fighting for decades to keep myself alive and well.

I’ve seen it in the eyes of people who are free of symptoms. It’s as if they’re saying, “Oh, you’re feeling sad. Just buck up and carry on!” These people are uniformed about the reality of clinical depression. I can describe it as trying to climb a mountain and you only have one pint of blood in your body. You have no energy, no resources … and at times, no hope. Oh—and don’t forget the associated anxiety!

I have used a Combination Approach to survive and thrive. I was lucky that I was diagnosed early in my life. An effective combination of medication and doctor/ psychiatrist /therapy and the God and Goddess has helped significantly in my life.

With the Gods on my side helping me, I’m leading a better life.

*  *  *

In summary, I’ve shared three methods so you can shift from a low mood. The goal is not to attempt to avoid all low moods. That’s not possible. The idea is to, perhaps, shift sooner out of a low mood.

Additionally, I suggest that you consider using a calendar to schedule your meditation (perhaps, make it daily?). Also, call appropriate friends and create reoccurring times to get together. Maybe, you’ll set up a weekly girls/bros night out.

As Wiccans we do well to schedule time for meditation, prayer and ritual to connect with the God and Goddess. Remember, They want to support you. The God and Goddess are there waiting to share Their wisdom and comfort with you.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

Depression and Food – A Wiccan Solution

“Don’t I deserve that cake?” I thought. “I worked so hard today, and I am so tired. I still have so much more to do! Besides no one cares, anyway.”

That last part is a depression-dripping comment. Having depression and trying to lose weight is a hard thing to do. Why? When you’re depressed, you look to find comfort in any form you can. Food is an easy outlet for feeling safe and comforted when you’re depressed. I should know: I have significant depression, and I have been fighting to lose weight for, at least, twenty years.

Why did I turn to food? When depressed, I looked for energy to do many things: To feel safe, to stay awake, and to stop feeling lonely.

In therapy for many years, I constantly worked on my self-esteem. During this process, I felt a big disappointment since I had gained so much weight. It was hard to feel good about myself.

I tried to lose weight many times. Joining a gym and even Weight Watchers at one point. Nothing worked….

Now I have let go of forty pounds. How did I do it? By turning to the God and the Goddess. I gratefully received Their gifts of vegetables, fruits of the earth, and Their love. I started to become the person They saw in me.

Before this, I only saw food as comfort. But now, I see food as fuel and something to be enjoyed in moderation. I see natural foods given by the Goddess as gifts to be savored and appreciated—not just gobbled down without thought or enjoyment.

1. Focus on the Gifts of the Goddess – A Simple Plan of Comfort During Weight Loss

Just imagine what the Goddess wants for you. She wants to give you health and happiness.

So, we begin with something simple: The Goddess gives us vegetables. I started eating vegetables for breakfast and ate natural proteins—not processed foods. And you know what? It worked! In the beginning, I dropped two pounds a week.

Now before you say, “YUCK!!! Vegetables for breakfast,” hear me out.

You can get your veggies and natural protein in a simple way.

I emphasize simple (and requiring little energy) because a person suffering depression symptoms experiences low energy. For example, omelets are a good choice. You can scramble two eggs in a bowl and then cut up some onions, red bell peppers and even add some spinach. Sauté the veggies first in olive oil.

Then pour the eggs into another pan and begin cooking your omelet.

2. Bring Goddess Into Your Cooking Routine

With deep gratitude, say aloud (while you’re cooking):

Thank you, Goddess for Your Bounty.
I’m grateful for how You help me.

At a certain point, add the veggies to your omelet, even a little cheese for some added flavor.

There you go: A healthy breakfast. Try it, you may be surprised at how well it works.

3. Another Way to Get Your Greens in the Morning

Into a blender, toss in frozen berries, a fist full of spinach, a cup of non-fat or low-fat milk, and half a banana. Blend this mixture for a yummy shake. I call it the Green Monster. One of these is really filling and healthy for you, too.

4. Keep Things Simple and Be Conscious About How You Turn to the God and Goddess

I’ve shared some details about keeping one’s food intake a simple process that requires a small amount of energy. I’ve noticed with my depression that my energy can be in short supply.

Now, I’ll share something vital about turning to God and Goddess for comfort. Do not make it a big deal and a big production. By this, I mean, address God and Goddess simply. Above, I shared how to say a quick prayer while you’re cooking.

Along this line, you could do a simple offering of a candle to the Goddess at dinner time.

You might imagine that “depression says, ‘You don’t have energy and you’re not going to feel better.’

Instead, by using simple prayers and simple healthy food preparation, you can get some real comfort from God and Goddess.

May Goddess give you great comfort.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

Are the Gods Angry?

As you see the broadcast news or news reported online, are you empathizing with people running from Southern Florida to save their lives?

Do you pause and ask what’s going on here?

Hurricane Harvey wreaked havoc on Texas. Now, Hurricane Irma, while at Category 5, stomped Barbuda. Irma now stalks Southern Florida—soon to make landfall. Mexico just endured an earthquake, considered the worst in centuries.

Wiccans I know are getting impressions during meditation that the God and Goddess are upset.

A number of experts suggest that global warming has a role in causing these severe hurricanes. Peter Spinks wrote, in his post, Global Warming Changing Tilt of Earth’s Spin Axis: “Having once tilted towards Canada, the polar axis is now drifting towards Britain at roughly 16 centimeters a year, the NASA measurements reveal.”

Some Wiccans suggest that the God and Goddess are showing their anger in how They are not moderating the devastation of hurricanes. The God and Goddess appear fed up with our pollution and carelessness for the Earth.

So, what can we do?

As witches, we are truly connected to our environment. We can feel the tides of the Earth changing. The seasons are not as they were before. As Peter Spinks mentioned, the earth is literally changing its axis.

Start with something simple.
Clean up our Great Mother whenever and wherever you can. Join the effort at litterproject.com. Or donate to help preserve the forests: conservation.org and animals: worldwildlife.org. Or pick another favorite organization.

Each of us can contribute to the efforts to undo the mess. We need to take responsibility for our actions.

As Wiccans, we have a connection to the God and Goddess. We can make amends and curb our destructive behavior.

We can actually deepen our connection with the God and Goddess. We can help Them in our efforts to take care of our home, the Earth.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater
