How Witches Find Balance that Makes the Difference


What is most important to you?

Have you, like me, been shaken up by the coronavirus and the unrest around the world?

Every day, I ask myself, “What is most important?”

Recently, a friend told me about his distinction between values and virtues.

I understand a value as something that is important. For example, I value my relationship with my Gods. I value my sweetheart.

Then, we talk about virtues. I want to demonstrate the virtue of patience toward my husband.

I strive to be of service—so I’m focusing on the virtue of service.

Recently, I was reading the 13 Principles of Wiccan Belief as assembled by the American Council of Witches.

We recognize both outer and inner, or psychological, worlds—sometimes known as the Spiritual World, the Collective Unconscious, Inner Planes, etc.—and we see in the interaction of these two dimensions the basis for paranormal phenomena and magickal exercises. We neglect neither dimension for the other, seeing both as necessary for our fulfillment. – The Fifth Principle of the 13 Principles of Wiccan Belief from the American Council of Witches

So, let’s look at this Fifth Principle in the light of values annd virtues. Witches value the spiritual plane, mundane plane, and magick.

This phrase “We neglect neither dimension for the other, seeing both as necessary for our fulfillment” points toward a virtue. I see that virtue as balance.

What Does This Mean for the Everyday Life of a Witch?

As witches, we can strive for balance with the spiritual and mundane sides of life. We walk between the worlds, and so, we have the power to manifest our desires. We have tools that other spiritual paths do not. We have spells, magickal elementals, and the Gods who help us.

Some spiritual paths appear to neglect the mundane or earthly side of life.

On the other hand, witches understand nature in its fundamental parts and how such parts work together. This helps us fulfill our desires and needs.

The Path of a Meaningful and Happy Life

Because of all the stress from the coronavirus and unrest in the world, I look to center myself and to create balance in my own life. A focus on both values and virtues gives me guidance on how to lead my own day.

I work with these questions:

  • How do the Gods see this?
  • How can I focus on service and balance today?
  • How will I make sure to complete my daily meditation session?
  • When will I take my daily walk?

May these insights support your journey.

Blessed Be,
