How Witches Use Movement to Create Magickal Energy

“When you use movement, you’re creating power,” I responded to a friend after she attended her first coven gathering.

“So, that’s what you and your coven mates were doing when you all pointed your athames to the East?” she said.

I nodded.

When I was eight years old, I naturally set up an altar in the woods. I also walked around and settled quietly. Birds would approach because they found my energy to be inviting and peaceful.

As I grew older, and spiritual elders taught me about Wicca, I noticed some details about Wiccans and movement.

Here are three insights:

  1. Movement creates energy

Some covens use instruments like drums to create movement and sound. People will clap their hands and sometimes use dance to create energy. Once you’ve cleansed the area, you can use movement to create the type of energy you desire.

  1. Your body functions better when you honor it by moving

Some spiritual paths focus on the rational mind. In such paths, we notice a big emphasis on scriptures and arguing about what certain passages mean.

On the other hand, Wicca honors nature, intuition, and the temple (body) we have been given. My habit of having a daily walk helps me raise energy better when I gather with coven mates.

  1. Having a sedentary lifestyle actually hurts your spiritual practice

Neuroscientists note that the brain likes to conserve energy. Making decisions uses up energy. In fact, researchers talk about decision fatigue. By the end of the day, a person can be too tired to take a daily walk. I’ve noticed that it’s like a machine that rusts by just sitting there.

Some people like to live in their heads. Instead, Wicca calls on us to move every day. I remember a spiritual elder said, “Be a good animal.” This reminds me that my body wants to move. It was designed to move. Earlier in my life, when I was 40 pounds heavier, being heavy enticed me to just sit and not move.

Now, I’m more conscious that getting in daily exercise is part of my spiritual path. I want my body to help me create energy in rituals.

May these insights help you on your path.

Blessed Be,
