Have you felt, at some time during the current worldwide crisis, somehow disconnected or isolated?
Some spiritual paths create more isolation. How? These spiritual paths suggest that human beings have “dominion” over the natural world. To have such dominion means to be set apart or set above.
Fortunately, witches realize that our interaction with nature is not about dominion. Instead, it’s about cooperation. We are not separate from nature; we are part of it.
Witches are freed from getting caught up in “competing” with nature or trying to subdue or control nature.
Here are three insights:
- Let go of thinking humans are above everything
Have you noticed how much chaos arrogant human beings are causing? I’ve heard people say, “We need people to stop treating the environment like a garbage can.”
The animals and plants are our brothers and sisters of Mother Earth.
Let’s pause for a moment and think about how aspirin comes from willow bark. What a wonderful situation we have: Nature in many ways supports us. Often, nature nurtures us.
- Connect with nature to get outside your ego
Take a walk in nature and connect with your brothers and sisters of the natural world. You can pause for a moment next to a tree and project your thoughts to it. I know fellow Wiccans who receive feelings or insights in return from a tree.
My point here is that when you connect with nature you lift yourself out of feeling small and vulnerable. You’re part of a family; you’re not alone.
On the other hand, the ego is that part of you that is made of fear and feels small.
I’ve learned that when I walk in a forest or park, I feel one with the Gods.
- The Gods express Themselves through nature
The Winter Solstice is now approaching. This is the time of the rebirth of the God. Wiccans have a deep connection to the seasons. We notice the cycles of life, and the Gods also go through Their own seasons. For example, Ostara (March) is a time connected to fertility and renewal. The world and the Gods become new again.
My point here is that we, witches, have opportunities to feel supported and enriched by the flow of seasons.
We are not alone. We are not stuck. The natural flow of the seasons and the power of the Gods are deeply part of our lives.
May these insights support your life path.
