Have you felt alone or like you’ve hit bottom? Would you like to experience the Goddess’s Breath of Life?
When do we really need the God’s and Goddess’s love and light?
Every day? Yes. And in particular, when you’re feeling sick. I just had another coughing jag that almost split me in two. I keep reminding myself to let the Gods’ love and light in.
Their healing breath of life can soothe and heal even the most broken parts of us.
When we look at the word enthusiasm, we realize the Latin origin of the word includes “theos (God)” and the meaning “inspired by God.” Inspire means “breathe life into.”
Three Common Blockages That Can Keep You from Receiving Goddess’s Breath of Life
Here are Three Blockages you may experience:
- Distraction from Your Essence
- Feeling Unworthy
- Loss of Hope
- Distraction from Your Essence
When I think of the meaning of “Your Essence,” I think of Your True Self, which is what the God and Goddess meant for you to be. This about your True Path.
We all have a True Path in life. It consists of the lessons and goals we set up before we incarnated here on the physical plane.
If we’re distracted from Our True Self, we can feel certain forms of pain. These can manifest as feelings of being alone and unworthy. These feelings create blockages to our True Path.
Many Wiccans connect with their natural state of peace and comfort while meditating, chanting or doing a ritual or breathing process.
- Feeling Unworthy
With this blog, I’ve shared part of my journey in dealing with symptoms of clinical depression. With these symptoms I can feel unworthy of love and kindness, even from the Gods!
So, how do we transform this feeling of unworthiness to happiness or even enthusiasm? Meditation is a great way to start on the road to the God and Goddess.
Many Wiccans find that focusing on the breath can be helpful, too. Here is an easy Breath Exercise to help remove blocks in your way to the Gods.
As you take in a long, slow breath, say silently,
“I breathe in Light and Goddess’s Love.”
As you breathe out slowly, say silently,
“I breathe out pain and distraction.”
- Loss of Hope
During the recent political events in the USA, many people feel hopeless. Then, something good happened. Recently, there was a big turnout of African-American women voters in Alabama. They voted to make sure an alleged-pedophile candidate did NOT get elected. (I feel he should not have been allowed to run in the first place.) This resulted in the first Democratic senator to be elected to represent Alabama in 25 years.
This positive outcome reminded me that we have a choice to focus on the good moments of life. In this way, we can nurture hope within our heart.
So, if you feel a loss of hope, see if you can find something good to focus on. This helps open the door so that you can receive the Goddess’s Breath of Life.

“Moonwater was telling me about her weight loss program, and it sounded like something I could do that didn’t cost me more than the normal groceries I buy, anyway. I started with an egg omelet in the morning with mushrooms and spinach. … In two weeks, I lost 7 lbs. I had a couple of days of eating what I wanted but not overeating. Then right back to Goddess Style. I feel great and eat what the Goddess gives us.” – Denise Kopplinger

Thank you for helping me see I’m not some freak because of circumstances throughout my life that have caused the blocks, and that i need to stop hiding from or burying them and face them one step at a time. – Crystal Sparks

2 thoughts on “Wiccans and the Breath of Life of the Goddess”
Hello Moonwater. We have spoke before. What do you do when hope itself hurts? When every supposed blessing is nothing but a reminder of futility. I certainly feel most distant from the Goddess and gods.
Your question hits home for me.
I have often felt that “hope hurts too much.”
I’ve even told friends: “I won’t believe that I’m taking a trip until I am ON the plane.”
So, as we acknowledge that “hope hurts” for many of us at various times, the next question is: “What do we do with that?”
I begin with the thought: “God and Goddess wish the best for Their children. And connecting with Them will bring me comfort.”
A process I would suggest is:
* For some of us, the message arrives even days later.
Some of us find that we dread “quiet time” because all of the painful thoughts and feelings rise to fill in the space of silence. So, perhaps, meditation may not be useful to you at this time.
I find that going for a walk, listening to music, or doing some other calming activity can “fill the void.” For example, for a time, I went to yoga class. The idea of taking a class (or having a daily practice of listening to music) is about having a portion of your day when you have a break and can experience some form of inner peace.
Shawn, in dealing with my clinical depression symptoms, I also struggle with having painful thoughts and feelings. I have felt a separation, at times, from the God and Goddess. I just keep up my Wiccan practice. Eventually something clicks, and I feel myself reconnect with God and Goddess.
Shawn, may you be blessed to receive such comfort,
