A Supportive Response to People Seeking Love and a New Chapter of Life

Recently, I have received multiple e-mail questions from women who wish to transition into a chapter of life with a loving partner. They speak of devoting all their time to working and taking care of family members like siblings and an older parent.

They sometimes say that they were stupid in failing to devote any time to healthy dating. They also complain of encountering commitment-phobic and abusive men. All of these details are truly serious, and I had multiple conversations with spiritual elders.

It breaks my heart to read emails in which the writer says that she wants to stop feeling empty and scared.

All of these issues and problems are deep and can be quite complicated. Here I will share some links to my relevant podcast episodes (Goddess Has Your Back Podcast) that might be supportive to people who find themselves in any similar situation. I am including these podcast episodes so you hear my friendly voice as support.

Episode 191 How Witches Use the Secret of Comfort.

How Witches Learn the Right Lessons

“That’s it. I give up,” my friend, Kelsey, said. “The lesson is that I’m no good in a relationship.”

As I listened to her, I wondered if that was the real lesson about her latest relationship disaster.

Was there something else to learn?

Here are three insights.

  1. Your first guess about the lesson can be wrong.

At 18, I got married. Big mistake.

But if learned the wrong lesson—like giving up on relationships—I would have missed my current, blessed marriage.

Neuroscientists note that people’s brains do not fully develop until age 25. Until this age, the prefrontal cortex that helps curb impulsive behavior is not fully developed.

So, you guessed it. At 18, I made a rash decision.

Some covens do not allow younger members. In part, this relates to the ability to approach spirituality on another level.

The right lesson for me to learn is related to taking your time and getting to know someone.

  1. The right lesson empowers you.

Years ago, my sweetheart said, “I’m tired. I’m rushing like a racehorse.”

“Run in better races,” I replied.

The wrong lesson would be: “You’re tired so quit.”

Instead, my sweetheart learned the lesson to be selective. He learned to accept certain speeches over others. These decisions helped us get to Thailand and New Zealand—where he gave speeches.

  1. Invite the Gods to guide you

Often, the wrong lesson is the assumption that you don’t have what you want at this moment, and this means you’re doomed to an unfulfilling life.

However, the Gods know that so much in life is cyclical.

“The birth and rebirth of all nature,
The passing of winter and spring,
We share with the life universal,
Rejoice in the magical ring.”
– Doreen Valiente in The Witches Creed

It’s important to do meditation sessions so that you can listen to the Gods and intuition. Then you realize where you are in a cycle. If you’re creating something, are you at the beginning? Is this the Spring of the journey?

You can even look at this in terms of certain friendships. Some friendships are shorter. Are you in a time of winter? Has a particular relationship run its course?

In the following prayer, you can ask for the Goddess’s wisdom.

A Prayer

In moonlight’s bliss
And Goddess’s kiss,
May my path be right,
This moonlit night.
Let my decision
Have precision.
May I learn the right lesson
And know the true reason.
So Mote It Be.

May these insights support your path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Find Internal Energy to Consistently Practice the Craft

“You said that if I want to prepare to do ritual on the astral plane, it helps for me to begin by practicing visualizing something as simple as a rubber ball,” my friend, Jessica, said.

“Yes,” I replied.

“How am I going to motivate myself to consistently practice visualization?” she asked.

“I have a couple of questions for you,” I began.

Here are three insights.

  1. Identify your tendencies.

We begin by looking into your tendencies. I talked with a friend who identified people’s reasons for taking action as falling into three categories:

  1. “For the team” person
  2. “I want to achieve” person
  3. “I want comfort above all else” person

Do you relate to one of these three categories?

Will you do more for others than for yourself? I find that I fit this category. I frequently jump to help friends and family members.

Do you really want to achieve something? Is witchcraft something that you want to master?

Do you want more relaxation and comfort?

The idea is to find out what your tendencies are. Then use what you learn to help you motivate yourself.

  1. Support your own path.

Learning and practicing the Craft is work. How do you get yourself to do work?

I found that if I make something a routine, I can get it done.

I also set my timer to remind me to do things—including the time for me to clean my cat’s litterbox.

My point is: You are unique. You will do better when you observe what patterns help you consistently do work … even the work of improvement in the Craft.

For example, I have my morning prayer on my laptop computer. I cannot use my laptop without seeing my morning prayer on it and reciting my prayer early in my day.

What will you do to set up a pattern, so you consistently practice elements of the Craft?

  1. Invite the Goddess to show you what can help your unique path.

Here is a prayer.

Prayer to the Goddess

Lovely Lady of the Moon,
Guide me to find my way.
Give me consistency and patience for my growth in the Craft.
Let Your light of intuition guide me to better self-knowledge.
Let me rise in my journey to know myself better with the Craft.
By Your Light may I be free,
So Mote It Be.

May these insights support your path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Set Boundaries with Goddess’s Help

“They called me in for work real early again!” my friend, Arianna, said.

I had nothing to say that could help her. She knew that it would be good to have a good boundary and say, “No” at times. But she didn’t do it.

I just listened with empathy in my eyes.

I have three insights for you.

  1. Be aware of the importance of boundaries

I see many people with inadequate skills related to boundaries. I certainly need something like a refresher course. I know we want to help everyone. But we also need to help ourselves. We need to take good care of ourselves so we can help others. So many times, I’ve been on a plane and heard the flight attendant say, “Put on your oxygen mask first before helping others.”

What is an “oxygen mask” in your daily life? What do you need?

We all have responsibilities. But there are several people who will pile on us—if we let them.

What is a healthy boundary? How about getting people to show some respect for your reasonable needs for time off and rest?

      2. Practice saying your boundaries

Do you know what are your boundaries? If not, think about it. You can even take a piece of paper and write down some appropriate boundaries.

I went through a self-defense course called Model Mugging. This is where you practice full force on an instructor. You shout out NO! and do self-defense moves, full force, on a padded attacker.

The same concept can be taken to boundaries as well. Once you have identified a boundary, you need to practice. Say it firmly out loud.

Perhaps, you say something like: “No. I cannot stay late here at work tonight. I have family details.”

Maybe, you might say, “No. You gave me no notice, and I have prior commitments.”

When it is appropriate, state your boundary with resolve.

Need more help? Ask the Goddess for support with your boundaries.

     3. Ask Goddess for support with your boundaries

Here is a prayer to help.

Boundaries Prayer

My Gracious Lady,
Give me Your strength to set up and strengthen my boundaries.
Encircle me with Your protection and guidance to enhance my boundaries.
Teach me better boundaries so that I may remain strong, and I can help others and myself.
So Mote It Be.

May these insights support your path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Truly Cast Effective Spells

“You mentioned 5 elements of casting an effective spell,” a reader said. She went on to ask, “Of the five elements (intent, visualization, concentration, meditation, or willpower), which is the hardest and why?”

Intent

To do successful magick, you need to understand several things. First, you must have intent. You need to know what you want to manifest. You must be specific. You want a car? For what? Perhaps, you want something nice but economical. You don’t want a piece of junk that will break down on you every chance it gets. I suggest you go shopping, perhaps, on the internet. Get to know what you want and like for your car.

Having a solid intent is your first step before you do any magick. Once you have that cornerstone set you can continue with the second thing which is concentration. During your spell, you will need lots of concentration and visualization.

Visualization

When you imagine the car you want, get truly specific. What color? What gas mileage? Or is it an electric vehicle? Here’s an example, if you desire a convertible car, you imagine the wind blowing through your hair as you drive with the top down.

Concentration

This is the process of focusing and then refocusing your mind on your visualization task. In essence, you concentrate on the object and on the images in your mind that are specific for your desired manifestation. You will find that you may need to consciously redirect your mind to focus on the visualization object again and again

Meditation

Some Wiccans begin with a meditation to clear the mind before using both concentration and visualization. Consider doing a simple meditation in which you focus on your breath.

Willpower

When it comes to successfully perform magick, willpower, to me, means the driving force of desire for some form of change. So, I focus on the power of “I will.” This is an important distinction because many people think of willpower as only the ability to avoid temptation. Using your will is deeply rooted in your desire. Lack of will just creates another belly flop.

I’ve now shared with you the five must-haves (intent, visualization, concentration, meditation, and willpower) for doing magick that works.

Let’s return to the question: “Of the five elements (intent, visualization, concentration, meditation, or willpower), which is the hardest and why?”

  • For many people, visualizing is truly hard. Some of us actually tune into sound more than images. If you’re doing “visualizing,” you may need to “talk your way through.” You can say something like: “I now drive a blue Toyota 2015 Corolla that was lovingly cared for by the previous owner.” (This is merely an example. Working the words takes effort, time, and care.)
  • Because many people get intent wrong, it can be the hardest part. The easiest way to get intent wrong is to think in terms that are too broad and too general.
  • Several people find that meditation is nearly impossible for them. Trying to sit quietly can feel awful. Some people find it better to do a walking meditation.
  • Willpower can fall apart for several people. Why? When I talk about focusing on the power of “I will,” this may bring up many forms of self-doubt. My friend, Kelsey, said, “I will? Who am I kidding? I’m not strong, and I don’t deserve good things in life.” In this situation, Kelsey has an active ego that is sabotaging her willpower and spell-casting efforts.
  • In today’s society of massive distractions including social media and more, developing the skill of concentration is thwarted. My friend, Fred, mentioned how he found it necessary to practice piano every day to achieve a good level of playing skill. Learning to concentrate takes planning, effort, and practice. This can be so hard because many of us return home from work exhausted. You need the energy to develop your concentration skills.

What do you want deep in your heart? Are you willing to pay the price in attention, effort, training, and practice?

May you identify what can elevate your real happiness.

May these insights support your path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater
