How Witches Clear Their Thinking and Free Up Their Future

“Oh, Jessica, you’re so cynical,” my friend, Amy, said.

“I’m not cynical. I’m skeptical,” Jessica, my other friend, replied.

The difference between cynical and skeptical is important.

To me, cynical has a negative connotation. It’s like you won’t give an idea some true consideration. You have already made up your mind about the idea. On the other hand, skeptical is: You are willing to listen to the idea and more information. You really think about it. You are willing to bring in more evidence. I’ve noticed that some people take a certain cynical approach that shuts down the conversation.

I’m concerned that cynical can lead to a “negative self-fulfilling prophesy.” For example, Susan,  as a young child, was told that she was fat. Even though she was quite thin. She totally believed that she was fat. She became cynical. She wouldn’t even let in the idea that she might be an appropriate weight. Later in life, she gained a lot of weight. Having a habitual cynical approach, Susan didn’t even try to change her habits because she already believed she was a lost cause.

This reminds me of the Thirteenth Principle of The Thirteen Principles of Wiccan Belief.

We believe that we should seek within Nature that which is contributory to our health and well-being.” The Thirteenth Principle of The Thirteen Principles of Wiccan Belief, assembled by The American Council of Witches

Now, in the present, Susan has a new choice. She can listen to the Gods. Unfortunately, listening to cruel human beings during her youth created a sour, cynical approach in Susan.

Let’s remember that whatever happened in the past is like an early chapter in a book. Something new and better can happen in your current, new chapter of life.

Now, Susan can listen to the Gods. She can focus on natural foods that the Gods provide. She can shift her choices about junk food. She can look to the natural world (echoing The Thirteenth Principle of Wiccan Belief) for healing. She can ask the God and Goddess for guidance. This is something I discuss in my online course Goddess Style Weight Loss.

Looking at the example above, we can see how a cynical mind can cause a lot of suffering.

I invite you to consider dropping cynical in favor of skeptical. Skeptical can be valuable for us to check out the data and evidence. We will also need to try new things and make decisions based on our new experiences.

I’ve noticed that taking a cynical approach can, at times, lead to a closed mind. Having a closed mind can cause much suffering and fear. You close off any new data when you are cynical. In effect, this stops your growth as a being and an individual.

You are here to learn. Assess if you’re being cynical or skeptical.

So, remember to listen to Nature—“the teacher” of our class. Look to Nature and learn.

May these insights support your journey.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Find Balance that Makes the Difference

Meditation

What is most important to you?

Have you, like me, been shaken up by the coronavirus and the unrest around the world?

Every day, I ask myself, “What is most important?”

Recently, a friend told me about his distinction between values and virtues.

I understand a value as something that is important. For example, I value my relationship with my Gods. I value my sweetheart.

Then, we talk about virtues. I want to demonstrate the virtue of patience toward my husband.

I strive to be of service—so I’m focusing on the virtue of service.

Recently, I was reading the 13 Principles of Wiccan Belief as assembled by the American Council of Witches.

We recognize both outer and inner, or psychological, worlds—sometimes known as the Spiritual World, the Collective Unconscious, Inner Planes, etc.—and we see in the interaction of these two dimensions the basis for paranormal phenomena and magickal exercises. We neglect neither dimension for the other, seeing both as necessary for our fulfillment. – The Fifth Principle of the 13 Principles of Wiccan Belief from the American Council of Witches

So, let’s look at this Fifth Principle in the light of values annd virtues. Witches value the spiritual plane, mundane plane, and magick.

This phrase “We neglect neither dimension for the other, seeing both as necessary for our fulfillment” points toward a virtue. I see that virtue as balance.

What Does This Mean for the Everyday Life of a Witch?

As witches, we can strive for balance with the spiritual and mundane sides of life. We walk between the worlds, and so, we have the power to manifest our desires. We have tools that other spiritual paths do not. We have spells, magickal elementals, and the Gods who help us.

Some spiritual paths appear to neglect the mundane or earthly side of life.

On the other hand, witches understand nature in its fundamental parts and how such parts work together. This helps us fulfill our desires and needs.

The Path of a Meaningful and Happy Life

Because of all the stress from the coronavirus and unrest in the world, I look to center myself and to create balance in my own life. A focus on both values and virtues gives me guidance on how to lead my own day.

I work with these questions:

  • How do the Gods see this?
  • How can I focus on service and balance today?
  • How will I make sure to complete my daily meditation session?
  • When will I take my daily walk?

May these insights support your journey.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Deal with the Mundane World Pushing the Opposite of Goddess’s Vision

Have you been feeling under pressure? Are you only seeing scarcity? Recently, I had a conversation with a friend, and we noticed that so much of the Mundane World is about pushing a story about scarcity and lack.

So much of the media that push products on us is about the message: “There’s a reason you feel bad. You don’t have [product]. Only if you had [product], then you’d feel better about yourself and your life. … By the way, don’t you deserve to have [product]?”

I’ve noticed that the Mundane World messages of scarcity and lack come across as the opposite of Goddess’s vision.

  1. Goddess Wants You to Call on Her

“Whenever ye have need of anything, once in a month, and better it be when the Moon be full, then ye shall assemble in some secret place and adore the spirit of me, who am Queen of all Witcheries.” – Doreen Valiente, writing in the voice of the Goddess in The Charge of the Goddess

The Mundane World says that you are not enough and that you need to get things in order to feel happy. On the other hand, Goddess has already given you what you really need: Your senses, this Earth, your body and your spirit. Goddess has placed divinity within you. Still, she says “whenever ye have need of anything … assemble in some secret place and adore the spirit of Me.” So, the answer is not to buy more stuff, it is to support your relationship with the Goddess by gathering and doing ritual.

  1. Goddess Wants You to Be Free

“And ye shall be free from slavery.” – Doreen Valiente, writing in the voice of the Goddess in The Charge of the Goddess

You can be a slave to a lot of things. One bad form of slavery is to be beholden to trying to please everyone. I have a big problem with this one. I want to make my loved ones happy. But on some level, it’s impossible to do this. Because this is impossible to do, I fail. With clinical depression symptoms, it is easy for me to spiral down into self-hate.

Instead, from this moment forward, I want to focus on this prayer.

Prayer for Real Freedom

Goddess,
Cradle me in Your arms
Like the Loving Mother You are
Teach me to stay on the path of love and appreciation
For myself and others.
Let me remember that my mind is my own
And my will is my own.
Let me realize that the Mundane World’s messages of
Scarcity, lack and “you are not enough” are illusions.
Let me feel in my heart
That You are the Gracious Goddess
Fully supporting me.
So Mote It Be.

May these insights support you on your path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Rise Above the Mundane World of Pain and Suffering

Free Yourself From Limitations

Does day-to-day life feel like it’s running you down? We, witches, know the mundane world has a large amount of suffering and pain. Just watch the evening news, and you can see it all. How can we heal in such a world?

This is when I think of the Goddess. Let’s look at The Charge of the Goddess by Doreen Valiente.

“If that which thou seekest thou findest not within thee, thou wilt never find it without thee.” – Doreen Valiente, writing in the voice of the Goddess, in The Charge of the Goddess

 The Goddess invites us to let go of looking to the mundane world for our inner peace and fulfillment.

This also reminds me of another quote:

“If you want to be happy, be.” – Leo Tolstoy

 The Gods put Their divinity within us. So, looking within is where we need to go for answers.  The Gods speak through that divinity within us to help us grow. We need to slow down, perhaps, for a meditation session or a prayer. We need to pause and be. Then we become aware of our inner divinity that Goddess placed in us. To be happy, we can pay attention and let our inner divinity shine.

 “In truth, there is only one mind.” – Erwin Schrodinger, Nobel Prize-winning Physicist

The God and Goddess have placed Their divinity in us. Pause for a moment. Let that sink in. We are connected with the God and Goddess. All that is good and uplifting is the one mind we share with the God and Goddess.

A Prayer

Goddess,
Help me feel deeply
That I am not finite
That You placed Your Divinity in me
That my soul rise above the mundane
And soar to the infinite joy in myself and You.
So Mote It Be.

May this process bless your journey.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Shift Away from Mundane World Lies

Does the mundane world feel overwhelming at times?

Here is a prayer to help you reconnect with the spiritual reality that the Gods support you every day and every minute.

I am loved in this moment Prayer

Lord and Lady,
Give me the experience to know
That I am loved in this moment.
To know that I am cherished and
Held dear to You.
Let me know I am cradled in Your hearts,
And release me from fear.
Although the mundane world tears at my sense of worthiness,
Keep me close in Your love.
Guide me to always remember Your
Embracing love for me.
So Mote It Be

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Use Time Management So They Connect with the Gods

“What’s most important to you as a witch?” I asked my friend, Jessica.
“To connect with the Gods,” she replied.
“You look concerned,” I said.
“I’m just not doing it. I’m not showing up for ritual,” she said, frowning.
This began an important conversation.

I’ll share three insights here:

  • The distractions and obligations of everyday life can strangle your spiritual practice.

Fear can exacerbate the situation. That is, many of us are buried in fear-inducing problems with the job, the kids and more. We live in a chaotic world. Not knowing what to do can stifle or even completely stall your spiritual practice. So many of us say, “I just can’t find the time.”

When you pause, you can realize that even just five minutes of meditation can calm you down and clear your thinking. That’s how a spiritual practice can be a lifesaver in the mundane and chaotic world.

  • Gathering with your Coven will give you a safe space for ritual.

When I am with my coven, I feel deeply supported. We support each other and raise each other up. We are a strong group. Being in a coven is having a chosen family.

This family can encourage your spiritual growth. This can be especially good if you don’t have a supportive family at home. If you gather with your coven, someplace outside your own home, you can find it to be an oasis from your mundane surroundings.

  • Pick your morning or evening as your sacred time.

I had a conversation with a friend who is a time management expert who authored three books on the topic. He noticed that time management is not really about lists, it’s about making great choices.

Have you noticed that your only “free time” is in the morning or at night before you go to sleep? You may want to choose one of those times as a designated sacred time. Mornings may work for some better than others because one can be fresh from the night’s rest.

However, if you are a night owl, you may prefer evenings.

I find that evenings seem to be the time I can spare. It may be better for me in the morning, but, at this time, I find that doing a brief meditation session (with my husband) before bedtime helps us both.

Don’t wait to have only an “ideal time.” Three minutes in your parked and locked car (someplace safe), may be helpful. You could recharge before going into your home for “family time.”

Remember, time management is about making great choices.

Choose to connect with the God and Goddess. Even a daily 5-minute meditation practice may truly brighten your life.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How the Goddess Supports You When You Feel No Hope

My husband looked so anxious. He was helping me finish my new online course. I felt unsettled, too. Why? At any moment, PG&E (in California) could shut down the power in my city. 

Sure, they were not going to interrupt service to San Francisco, but the small town I live in was at risk.

The first day, they said that they would shut down power to many locations at 12 midnight. Then 12 noon on the next day, then 8 pm. 

I had some thoughts about hope–and about how hope is connected with feeling that you don’t have any control.

Then I realized that the control we have is not over future events.

I had no control related to what the PG&E company might do. They might shut down the power right in the middle of my uploading my material to the online course website. That could wreck my hard drive.

My control was where I direct my focus … in this present moment.

Here is a prayer:

Gracious Goddess
Hear my prayer
Give me hope
And not despair.
Guide me on my true path’s course
Being gentle with no force.
Gracious Goddess
Hear my prayer.
Give me your guidance
With all Your care.

May this enhance your life.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Integrate Ritual in Their Lives

Casting Circle
Have you found that feeling tired—or having no extra time—has kept you from doing ritual?

We, Wiccans, know about holding an Esbat ritual during the full moon each month.

We also have the Sabbats that occur at specific times. They follow the Wheel of the Year.

Here’s a real solution. Connect your moments of worship of the God and Goddess with something you do as a natural part of the day.

For example, I have a friend who does daily exercises. Just before he begins his back-stretching exercises, he says, “Thank you, God and Goddess.” It just takes a moment. He tells me that it blesses his life.

You can use a ritual of massaging your feet with oil while you say a prayer of thanks—before you go to sleep for the night.

Here is a prayer you can use just before you brush your teeth in the morning.

Prayer of “Thank You for This Day”

Bless me, Goddess, this day
Guide me on my way
May I stay on the path
And grow in the Craft
May I express my best
‘Til night when I rest.
Thank you, Goddess.
So Mote It Be.

May this process bless your life.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Make a Choice Related to a Big Risk

“Take a new job? Start my own business? I don’t know what to do,” my friend, Alicia, said.

My first thought was about how people often think that a choice is “binary” – this or that – yes or no.

We had a good conversation that stayed with me.

Here are some insights when you face choices involving risk:

 

1.Consult an Elder

When taking a risk, consider seeking the counsel of an elder.

In many cases, if you talk with an appropriate elder, you’ll find someone who has walked the path before you.

(I will make an important distinction here: If you want to do a particular thing in the mundane world, choose an elder who has personally done such tasks.)

An appropriate elder has seen the road and the dangers ahead, and they can guide you on the correct path.

Witches honor the sage counsel of our elders. We see them as representing the Crone aspect of the Goddess. The Crone has wisdom and can help on the path before us.

 

2.Consult the Tarot or another Divination Tool

If you have a big choice with a significant risk attached, it is good to consult your divination tool. I have consulted my Tarot cards when I needed guidance on the path for my own choices.

 

3.Consult the Gods

You can ask the Gods for help in choosing to take the risk. Meditation is a good way to invite a conversation with your chosen Deity.

I ask the Goddess for help often in meditation and in prayer.

You can ask: “If it’s best for me to choose ‘A’, let me see a _____.”

You can suggest a timetable like: “If the answer is ‘A,’ may I see three blue cars this afternoon.”

Here is a prayer for asking for the Gods’ guidance:

 

Guidance Prayer

May my choice be clear.

Let me not fear,

for the Gods are always near.

So Mote it Be.

 

May this process bless your life.

Blessed Be,

Moonwater

How Witches Deal with Having No Choices

“I have no choice about this,” my friend, Steve, said.

I immediately thought, Is that true? Does he have no choices?

Maybe you’ve been in a similar situation when you wanted to offer some ideas to a friend, but you could feel it … the friend just wanted to vent. They were not open to hearing new or different ideas.

The good news is that we can turn to the Gods when we, personally, feel confused or feel that we have no choices.

Here are three helpful insights:

  1. Invite the Gods to reveal your hidden choices.

Say a prayer and ask the Gods, “Please reveal to me some positive choices I have that seem hidden to me now.”

You can also use a divination tool like a pendulum or Tarot Cards. Ask the Gods to guide you while using the tool.

How to Use a Pendulum

You’ll use a chain with a stone attached at the end. Hold the end of the chain and have the stone (crystal, precious metals, etc.) dangle over a sheet of paper with your two choices inscribed.

Loop the chain over your middle finger. Hold still. Declare that if the appropriate choice is “A,” then the stone will rock vertically (flowing toward your abdomen and away). Also, declare if the correct choice is “B,” then the stone will rock horizontally. Ask the Gods to show you the correct answer. Hold still and see what answer you get.

  1. Invite the Gods to strengthen you when it is a tough but valuable choice.

The Gods care about you. They know of the path you need to tread. It may not be the path that is easy, and it may not be the path that you preferred.

However, it’s the path that calls you—if you can hear it. Ask the Gods to strengthen you and to remove distractions so you can hear the call of the path aligned with your destiny.

It’s important to walk your Destiny Path for your own personal growth. We have lessons here during this incarnation.

  1. Invite the Gods to walk with you.

Invite the Gods to support you and walk with you on your True Path. You can do this through prayer, ritual, or simply by talking (in your mind) to the Gods. Consider taking a walk in nature and enjoying such an internal conversation with the Gods. Ask what you need to learn on this journey. Ask Them to clarify your answer. Additionally, you can ask the Gods to move any obstacle out of your way.

May this process bless your life.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater
