The Wiccan Path to Let Go — and to Invite New Energy and Abundance In

“My home has exploded,’ Mary said.

“What?!” I asked.

“My place is getting new windows and there is sooo much stuff to move!” she said. “I really need to start letting go of things. Even things that have a hold on my heart.” She sighed.

Are you inundated with an overwhelming number of things in your home? Need to pare it down a little?

Just like Mary, I can do with less clutter in my home. So, this weekend I’m doing a major paring down of my belongings.

If you’re called to clear out some clutter, here are some helpful ideas.

Ask yourself:

  1. Have I used this item in the past twelve months? If the answer is no, then you can donate it or recycle it.
  2. Hold an item in your hands and ask, “Does this truly make me happy?” If so, keep it. If you have a so-so feeling, then chuck it.
  3. Look at an item and consider whether you could sell it on the internet or at a garage sale.

I’m using these ideas as a guideline this weekend. I’m noticing that I need to have enough energy to tackle this big process.

Here is a simple chant to help in the process.

Get Rid of Things Chant

E-ho eee and E-ho woe
Help me get this stuff to go!
Clutter, clutter go away,
Never, ever come my way.
As you shrink, my space expands,
Throughout my home, no junk may land.
So bye, bye, and never come back,
Goddess, get my grace on track.

One of my mentors noted that when we let go of stuff, we open the door for more peace, grace, and abundance to flow to us.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

The Power of the God of Summer

“I’m feeling edgy,” my friend, Janet, said, during a phone call.

An hour later, my husband said, “I’m really energized. I’m on my way to finishing a draft of the book I’m working on.”

I reflected on this and noted that these two moments actually tune into something occurring on the cosmic level. To our ancestors, Beltane celebrates the beginning of Summer. As the Wheel turns to Midsummer, the God is at the peak of His Power.

Traditional Witches emphasize having a balance of male and female energies. Still, we can take advantage of the seasons and the surge of masculine power or feminine power. Since this is the time of the God, this is a time of more masculine power.

Since every human being has both male and female energies in them, women can take advantage of this time, too. For the sake of our conversation, let’s look on “masculine energy” as a “let’s go!-energy.”

Here’s a chant to help you embrace this time of the God.

For this chant, we embrace the “doing energy” as embodied in the element of Fire.

The Sun gains power,
This is my hour.
Actions manifest desire.
As bright as a bonfire,
My Will, the multiplier.
In Your Great Hour,
Lord, lift me higher.

So Mote It Be.

May this chant empower you to take action and improve your daily life.

P.S. In celebration of Beltane, I will be gone for a week, celebrating this time with friends and family.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

Reach Out to God and Goddess in Stressful Times

A number of my Wiccan friends (and other friends with other spiritual paths) are stressing out now. Can you blame them?

Just today, one of my friends sent this information to me:

“Some of the bills that are up for a vote in the U.S. House of Representatives are:

  • HR 861 Terminate the Environmental Protection Agency
  • HR 610 Vouchers for Public Education
  • HR 899 Terminate the Department of Education
  • HR 370 Repeal Affordable Care Act
  • HR 354 Defund Planned Parenthood
  • HR 785 National Right to Work (this one ends unions)
  • HR 83 Mobilizing Against Sanctuary Cities Bill
  • HR 147 Criminalizing Abortion (“Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act”)
  • HR 808 Sanctions against Iran”

I have Wiccan friends who are terrified about what will happen to them when they lose the healthcare provided the Affordable Care Act (which is stated to have provided roughly 20 million people with health insurance who did not have it before).

I am deeply concerned, and I participated in a rally (staged in front of Congresswoman Anna Eschoo’s office) to emphasize our request for continued healthcare coverage. I was even called up to speak briefly at the microphone.

That afternoon, for a brief time, I felt my worry quiet down. Why? I was participating. My concern is that, although we can participate in activism, we still live much of the time with intense pressure.

With the negative changes, many of us feel like our inner self is being squashed. What can we do? Sometimes, a good cry may help. Still, the God and Goddess are there for us. It’s time for us to reach out to Them.

Asking the Gods for Inner Peace 

  • You can meditate

A number of us can use meditation to go into a deep trance and meet the God and Goddess. Ask for Their guidance. You’ll often find comfort.

A number of Wiccans have asked God and Goddess to quell the fire of fear that resides inside.

Consider the practices of grounding and centering to relieve much anxiety you may have. (See my article on grounding.)

Grounding can help us get to a point where we’re calm about those things we cannot control. We’re not feeling good. Still, we’re okay. I’ve seen authors write about the difference between acceptance and approval. I certainly do NOT approve of those actions that hurt people. For a moment of peace, I can accept that, in this moment, I am okay.

  • You can do this Inner Peace Ritual

What you will need:

  • White candle
  • Candle holder
  • Gardenia Incense (for peace)
  • Gardenia oil (you can use extra virgin olive oil if you can’t get gardenia oil)
  • Regular ritual tools
  • Cakes and wine

Cast Circle in the usual manner. Cleanse and consecrate the white candle. Then as you dress the candle with the gardenia oil, visualize how you want peace. See in your mind people respectfully talking to each other and agreeing. Place the candle in the its holder–in middle of your altar.

Light the candle and say three times:

Goddess
Help us see
Our graceful connection.
Bless us with your clarity
Turn hard hearts to charity.

Sit and continue your visualization as you watch the candle burn. Let the candle burn down until it has been fully consumed.

Do the Cakes and Wine Ceremony. Close the Circle.

You can repeat this ritual to support you and the world around you.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

A Prayer for Healing from a Cold

altar

If you’re not feeling well, I feel real empathy for what you’re enduring. I’m holding on through my own difficulties with a cold at this moment.

So here is a prayer to help speed your healing.

Light a candle and recite:

When the fever takes hold, may the Gods loosen its grip.

When the chills come over me, may the Gods warm me gently from within.

When the aches and pains torment my body, may the Gods relieve me.

I ask now for Your strength and the healing, Gods! May Your healing be swift and complete unto me.

So mote it be.

May you be happy and well this winter.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

In Just One Moment, Connect with Goddess

 

Lily2

“I was so happy a day ago,” my friend Anna said.

“I hear a ‘but’ coming up,” I said.

“But then I found out my project is going to cost three times more,” she said.

“That sounds tough to hear,” I replied. “What were you happy about?”

“Our project had a new donor,” she continued, “But now, we’re stuck.”

I empathize with Anna’s situation.

The strange thing I notice is that Anna did not immediately invoke her Wiccan knowledge. Why did that happen?

You see, your ordinary, daily life is NOT separate from your spiritual life.

What could Anna do—in just a moment or two—to help her feel the Goddess’s love?

  1. Turn Your Thoughts to Goddess

Shift to your feelings and thoughts about what you’re grateful for. Use this chant:

Gracious Lady of the Moon,
I thank you now for this boon.

  1. Light a Candle per day

You can light a candle as an offering to express your gratitude for what you do have.

On the first day, Anna could have lit a candle to express her gratitude for the project donation.

On the second day, Anna could light a candle for Goddess’s Guidance.

Use this chant:

Goddess,
I don’t know what to do.

Grant me strength to find a solution.
Guide me with Your Divine Inspiration.

Grant me strength to find a solution.
Guide me with Your Divine Inspiration.

Grant me strength to find a solution.
Guide me with Your Divine Inspiration.

So Mote It Be.

The third day would be time to do an offering after what you want has manifested.

  1. Find some humor.

When we do things, we’ll face some resistance.

I was talking with a friend recently and we came up with this little phrase:

Goddess,
I thank you now
I thank you later
Do what You will
to straighten out this hater.

My friend and I laughed about this one.

Remember, you can connect with Goddess in just one moment.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater
