How Witches Elevate Their Self-Respect

What are you waiting for?

For years, I waited for some feeling of calm, confidence, and self-acceptance.

Can you relate to that?

“To think that we will wait for another life
To drink the wine from the horns and leap the fire.” – from Elegy for a Dead Witch by Doreen Valiente

During Beltane, one leaps the fire to inspire fertility, purification, and protection.

Do you feel you are a person who deserves purification and protection?

I ask this because self-respect is important to me. Why? My own depression symptoms put me down daily. I continue to learn how to support my own self-respect.

Here are three insights.

  1. Learn the value of self-respect

Have you felt the pressure that exists because many societies slam scorn upon us witches?

Self-respect is essential to each of us as individuals.

The definition of self-respect is –

“Pride and confidence in oneself; a feeling that one is behaving with honor and dignity.” — from Oxford Languages

Realize that the God and Goddess are in you. In having divinity within, you deserve to feel the positive energy of honor and dignity.

What happens when you operate from a foundation of self-respect? You create positive experiences in your life. You let go of unnecessary stress. You move with the energy of kindness and strength.

  1. Ask yourself “Is this how I would treat my good friend?”

Do you find that you constantly berate yourself?

What does that create?

Do you feel exhausted?

More than that, notice what a terrible habit berating is.

Would your best friend put up with that?

Again, remember we are one with the Gods. Treat yourself like the God/Goddess you are.

At least, treat yourself with the kindness and support you show to a good friend.

Why? You need positive energy to be good to others. Plus, when you are kind to yourself, you have the strength to “do no harm.”

  1. Ask for the Goddess’s guidance to get your past stuck points.

Are you stuck? Do you fail to see the goodness that you contribute daily?

Were you taught to treat yourself in a shabby manner?

If you are having a hard time, you are not alone. Many people struggle with this.

Realize your loving Goddess stands by, fully willing to help you heal and move forward. Goddess will give you guidance and help you see who you truly are. Through prayer, meditation, and ritual, experience the Goddess celebrating the divinity within you—that She put there!

May these insights support your path.

Blessed Be,
