A Wiccan Walks A New Path

Moonwater’s new book.

Do you ever think about how God and Goddess made everything? You look at a tree and you say, “That works.” You look at a waterfall, and you might say, “Ahhh, beautiful.”

“How about a diet?” my husband asked me.

“No! Humans made diets!” I said.

No wonder, diets don’t work. Why? I’ve noticed that a diet seems to be so much about punishment.

There’s a Myth that you can punish yourself into doing something good. Here’s what I discovered: I try to be good and eat only what is on the diet. And when I fail? I feel guilt that I wasn’t strong enough or good enough. I even went into self-shaming and self-loathing. I’m punishing myself for screwing up.

In meditation, I realized that Goddess doesn’t work that way. Goddess loves us. And that provides a crucial insight.

If diets don’t work, what does work?

Loving yourself works. You love yourself so much that when you choose what you eat and how you exercise, you feel that you’re totally worth it. It could even become easy to lose the weight.

How so?

God and Goddess have given us the bounty of the earth. Good proteins, fruits and vegetables to fuel our bodies to grow and heal, and so much more. The God and Goddess want us to be all that we can be.

December of last year, my doctor warned me that I had to lose weight. My extra weight was aggravating my asthma. More than that, I did not want to succumb to diabetes like my mother.

However, I’d tried diets before and had failed miserably. What to do? Return to the Goddess. This time I’d approach the whole process differently. My journey would be about natural food (letting go, most of the time, of processed food and processed sugar). I’d incorporate ritual, keeping my sense of humor, protecting my personal energy and more.

I choose a different lifestyle – one that honors the God and Goddess and honors myself. I choose the Goddess Style Weight Loss way of living now. And it works.

I have lost 36.8 lbs. so far, and I feel so much better.

What do you do when you have good news? You tell someone! So, I wrote a book to help others.

It’s time to choose. Love or myth – What do you choose?

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

Who Guards You? — A Wiccan Advantage

Moonwater’s Spirit Guide, Linda

Feeling alone plagues many of us. This relates to an essential question: Who guards you? You guard you, with the God and Goddess.

Spirit Guides can also assist you. (For more about finding your spirit guide, see my post here.) My Spirit Guide is Linda (visible in the image with this post).

The idea of who guards you is a big topic because a significant number of us have, at least subconsciously, overindulged in food to develop a big body as a shield.

Rita, a friend, said, “It was like I was saying, ‘See! I’m no longer a tiny girl that you can abuse!”

Think about it. With a big body, the scared, vulnerable you on the inside might feel safe.

As I write about Goddess Style Weight Loss, I observe the idea that dropping weight can be like dropping our shield. Why would we do that when the world proved to us that there are those who have hurt us—and others who might hurt us still?

In place of the big body, what or who will protect us?

The God, Goddess and Spirit Guides are with you always—24/7.

“But I don’t feel Their presence!” Rita said.

This is understandable. Why? Because we’re often under the assault of “The Monkey Mind.” That’s the part of our thinking that “chatters” with distractions and fears.

That’s the point. We don’t feel the presence of God, Goddess and Spirit Guides because we’re distracted by The Monkey Mind. (For example, I just felt the urge to check email on my smartphone.)

The answer is to step away from the chattering. For example, my husband meditates for three minutes every morning. Just today, he said, “I didn’t feel peace until about 2 minutes and 50 seconds into my meditation. But I did reach the peaceful experience.”

The next step is to identify when, where and how you can feel the presence of  God, Goddess and Spirit Guides. We see Their presence every day. From the grass between our toes to the rocky mountains that are Their cathedrals.

We can Cast a Circle and do a ritual which takes us out of our daily, Monkey Mind, routine.

But what about inside of us?

We are even distracted by feelings in our bodies.

There is a solution: Eat in healthy ways.

Eating healthy helps us run our bodies with the fuel they were meant to have. Goddess, through human history, has provided the bounty that sustains us. It’s only in modern times, when people have poisoned ourselves with processed, so-called food.

Realize that with healthy eating choices, our bodies will run better and with that comes a tighter bond in the ever loving arms of the Gods.

In this way we will be closer to Them, and we have a better chance of physically feeling Them within ourselves. It’s easier to connect with God and Goddess during a meditation if your body is not suffering from feeling bloated.

To bring this full circle, we’re been talking about who guards you.

You guard yourself by making healthy choices.

Even better, when you do things to reduce the distractions of the Monkey Mind, you open the door to the presence of God, Goddess and Spirit Guides.

Just like being in Circle, you can have a spiritual experience when you go Goddess Style: Eating from the earth and honoring the beings you consume.

The truth is: Having a big body can hold you back from experiences you really want. (I must say at 35 pounds lighter, it is easier for me to fit into a seat on a jet plane!)

Having a big body apparently was something I needed at one time.

Now, I’m focused on who really guards me—myself, God and Goddess.

Would you like to make the transition to feeling the presence of God, Goddess and Spirit Guides?

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

What about Witches and the Gods?

One reader asked, “Do I need to have Gods to be a traditional witch?”

My first reflex was to reply, “Yes!”

Then I paused and thought about it. What might this person be thinking that leads to this question?

Perhaps, he or she thinks that a witch is simply someone who wields natural energy to create change. (That would be a sorceress.)

Maybe this person thinks that witches merely do spells to heal people and attract prosperity. (Still a sorceress.)

On the other hand, traditional witchcraft is about honoring the Old Gods. So, by definition, the answer is: “Yes. You need to honor the Old Gods to be a traditional witch.”

Then, we look at what tradition attracts you. The Gardnerian tradition has its own particular pantheon of Gods. By the way, I won’t be writing here about which Gods these are. Why? This knowledge is Oath Bound. One needs to be an initiated member in good standing with a Gardnerian coven to eventually learn of these Gods.

Still, one could look into various pantheons.

Here are a couple of examples:

(There are MANY more Gods in the below-referenced pantheons. The below list is just to give you a “taste.”)

Norse Pantheon

  • Odin father of all the Gods
  • Thor son of Odin God of thunder
  • Freya Goddess of love and beauty
  • Freyr God of fertility

Greek Pantheon

  • Hera – Goddess of marriage and intrigue
  • Hercules – God of strength and adventure
  • Hermes – God of travel and commerce
  • Hestia – Goddess of home and family

 Celtic Pantheon

  • The Daghdha – God of weather and crops
  • Arawn – God of life and death
  • Belenus – God of sun, light, and warmth
  • Brigantia – Goddess of rivers and livestock

Egyptian Pantheon

  • Ra-Horakhty – God of the sun, ruler of the gods
  • Anubis – God of judgment and death
  • Bastet – Goddess of cats and vengeance
  • Hathor – Goddess of love, music, and motherhood

In summary, the traditional witch does multiple things: She or he honors the Old Gods and works with magick to create change.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

The Wiccan’s Salve In A Car Accident

A bright cheery day—I didn’t know what shadow would come my way.

I brought the family car to a stop at a red light. I glanced at my Dad. He was in good spirits. We just completed getting the car washed. We were homeward bound.

My car was in one of two left-turn lanes. To my right was a sedan car also preparing to turn left. The light signaled “green” for me to execute the left turn.

The sedan cuts off our car, making an illegal U-turn.

I brought the car to a gradual stop, giving ample time for the car behind me to respond to the situation.

CRUNCH–the car behind me rear-ended our car.

My neck snapped back.

All that I could do was think of the Gods. I prayed to the Gods that the outcome of this accident would not be as extreme as I thought it was.

I said something like: “Lord and Lady, may this not be as bad as it seems.”

I’m grateful to note that my father was not injured. Considering that my neck injury was significant, that was great news. Apparently, the headrest was set at just the right level to help him. Mine, on the other hand, doesn’t touch the back of my head so I got a serious case of whiplash.

I’m healing. But our car still needs work.

When unexpected trouble arrives, remember the God and Goddess are here to support you in times of need.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

When the World Around You is Crazy

What to do? Doesn’t it feel like the whole world has gone off the deep end? With people getting bombed to the political unrest in America, we now find ourselves in complete world chaos.

I am sooo stressed that I have been eating things I shouldn’t. Even my immediate surroundings are inundated with drama. For example, some of my friends have broken up their lifelong friendships.

Certain moments of the day, I feel torn apart. I need to be in three places at once: Helping my sweetheart … and … helping a friend with moving … and … helping another friend with a BIG project. Even my parents are having a difficult time.

I admit it. My cheat days are too close together. I was on a great trend of dropping weight, but in the last two days I’ve fallen back and gained 3 pounds!

So, when it feels like the world has fallen apart, what do we do?

It’s time to turn to the God and Goddess for strength. It’s important to do some real self-care. Why? When you’re a mess, you don’t have the energy to be helpful to anyone else. It’s time to slow down, meditate and find your inner calmness.

How do we do that? You can light some incense and play some pleasant calming music as a first step. Next, practice the process of grounding. Bring your awareness back into the quiet center in yourself. Concentrate on your breath and begin to meditate. Call upon the God and Goddess for the strength to not only endure, but, to thrive with peace in your heart and mind at this stressful time.

Once you have done this, you may want to take a ritual bath. In this way you will shed the unhealthy energy from your body and spirit.

Afterwards, eating something nutritious will also help you ground.  Take your time and enjoy the process.

Caring for yourself is a vital key to helping others. Find the peace that resides within you, and share such positive energy with other people.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

Wiccans and “Goddess Style” for Health and Happiness

“I’m tired of people saying that being fat is about putting a barrier up to protect yourself,” my friend, Rhonda, said.

“Do you think that it’s not true?” I asked.
“No. I’m just tired of it,” she said, with a weak little smile.

When I was a child, I was beaten by my brother. In my teens, my first sexual experience was terrifying. The guy forced me. Then, later, my boyfriend (later husband) forced himself on me, too.

Are you getting the pattern?

(By the way, I divorced that guy.)

We, who have had such experiences, don’t feel safe and so we eat—not just for comfort. Some of us eat and get fat so we can just avoid the whole situation of being sexually attractive. If you’ve been violated, doesn’t it make sense to take yourself out of a threatening situation. At a certain point with weight gain, predatory male individuals do not pay attention to you. It’s almost like disappearing.

Sometimes, we even feel like we don’t deserve to be happy. Think of how much shaming the mainstream media (including entertainment TV shows) does toward plus-size people.

Much of my weight problems stemmed from such low feelings (even though I would have said, “No. I don’t have those issues. I just want to eat what I want to eat.”)

With my experiences as a child and teen, I felt scared, vulnerable, unloved, and unworthy. Eating was the comfort I found. And I ate, and I ate, bringing me up to an unhealthy 278 lbs.

So, I suggest that for some of us eating is a psychological issue. It’s not just about willpower. In fact, relying on willpower is NOT a good plan.

Finally, I’ve worked with a doctor who brought an important detail to my attention: “Drop the carbs and the processed sugar,” he said.

I am glad to say that I’ve trimmed down 31 lbs. from the 278 lbs. I once was.

Weight Loss as a Spiritual Journey

I realize that my losing the weight also has a spiritual component. Just recently, I noticed that I had two “cheat days” in a row. My sweetheart asked me, “So two cheat days? Are you upside down?”

The answer was yes. I had been enduring lots of stresss, and I felt disconnected from my spiritual essence. That’s the part of me that IS really safe no matter what tough moments arise in my regular life.

When You’re in Trouble About Your Eating Habits …

To get to a form of inner peace, I lit a candle and said, “God and Goddess, please give me the strength to continue on my path of Healthy Eating.”

Taking in the Goddess – The “Goddess Style” of Healthy Eating

I call my new way of healthy eating “Goddess Style.” It’s about only eating what comes from the ground or a womb. No processed foods. No carbs and no sugar. Since most carbs are processed in some way, we avoid pasta, bread, and tortillas. We even avoid beans and rice (they’re still carbs).

You see, I eat only fresh veggies and unprocessed meats like whole breast chicken and so forth. I do eat cheese. (Yum!)

When you eat from the ground and the womb you are honoring the Gods. You are taking in the sustenance straight from Mother Earth. She provides real nourishment for our bodies and souls.

Some People Like “Advanced Goddess Style”

My friend, Nadine, is a vegan. Why? She says, “Eating abused animals brings on bad karmic energy.” Sometimes, I think of the vegan-choice as “Advanced Goddess Style.”

I also realize that plants can be tainted by pesticides. Try to eat local and organic if you can. Or even better, if you have the space, grow some food in your own garden. In this way, you will know for sure where your food has come from. An interesting article about growing fruits and vegetables indoors can be found HERE

In summary, when we take in “purely natural foods,” both our body and soul receive great nourishment. You might say that such natural foods also enhance our soul with good karma. The God and Goddess are in everything around us: The food we eat, and the world around us. When we take in natural foods, it is taking the essences of the Gods into ourselves. Undiluted, unfiltered, natural and healthy.

It pleases the Gods when we honor them with a natural lifestyle, what I call the Goddess Style of living. Our bodies work better, and we feel better.

If you choose to go Goddess Style, you will be healthier and happier.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

Healthy Eating – Goddess Style

Would you like to drop some excess weight? I’m glad to share with you that I’ve let go of 21 lbs. so far. “How?!”—my friends ask.

In a previous post, I talked about a new lifestyle I have been pursuing. It includes no carbs and no sugar (except for the occasional “cheat day.”) I’m now calling this new lifestyle: Goddess Style. You’ll notice that I don’t use the word “diet.”

Why do I say Goddess Style? Because everything I eat comes from the Goddess. I only eat stuff from the ground or from the womb, which the Goddess oversees. What can be more Pagan than that? (The opposite is shoving processed foods into ourselves, clogging arteries and doing damage.)

Now, we’ll add a Food Prayer.

Food Prayer

I thank You Goddess and God for the nourishment I am about to consume.
May it provide health and strength unto my body.
May it brighten my spirit with newfound wisdom.
May it bring joy to my heart.
By the Lord and Lady, blessed be this food.
So mote it be.

May you find some comfort from these ideas.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater
