How Witches Inspire Courage in Themselves

“What was the turning point?” my friend, Bea, asked.

“When I began, I went to a Barnes and Noble bookstore. Fortunately, I talked with someone who turned out to be a Wiccan person. She placed a stack of Wicca-related books in my hands.” I smiled at the memory. “It was when I had the courage to be myself. To follow the Wiccan path.”

My family would never understand if I told them of my Wiccan path.
So, it remained my secret.

Here are three insights.

  1. Resolve to make a shift away from looking for approval.

“Measure by your heart, not by others’ approval,” Tom Marcoux, the author, wrote.

I followed my heart and the Gods, into a new reality. My family’s disapproval (if they ever knew) would not hold me back. They had dragged me to church. But they would not shackle my heart.

On the Wiccan path, I was happier than I had ever been before. I let go of ever seeking my family’s or society’s approval.

What about you? What does your heart tell you?

  1. Realize that courage comes from “fullness.”

Wicca and witchcraft created fullness where only raw emptiness reigned before.

The scorn of certain rigid and bigoted people is from fear.

Instead, the love of the God and Goddess is fullness.

Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the assessment that something else is more important than fear. – Franklin D. Roosevelt

  1. Invite the God and Goddess to shine a light on your path of courage.

Here is a prayer to support your path.

A Prayer:

My Lady of the Moon and Lord of the Sun,
Illuminate the path of courage for me.
Show me love and compassion where fear once resided
Let my courage fill the space where once a plea for approval took hold.
Let the fullness of Your Love guide me and protect me.
So Mote It Be.

May these insights support your path.

Blessed Be,
