The Wiccan View: How to Know Why You Are Here on This Planet

“So much doesn’t make sense now,” my friend, Jacob, said.

“I can guess some of what you’re referring to,” I replied. “Is there something specific that really bothers you?”

“I … I guess. I don’t know why things have to be so screwed up. I feel really bad,” he said.

This began an extended conversation that left me thinking deeply.

So much of what bothers us comes down to asking “Why?”

And then the big question: “Why am I here?”

I have often looked on the earth as a classroom.

So, then the question might take on a new tint, “What am I here to learn?”

The next thought is: “To find out what you must learn, think of… What triggers you? What makes you sad, scared or angry?”

Deep meditation holds the key to the mystery.

Triggers Meditation

Find a quiet somewhere you know you will not be disturbed. Turn off your phone and choose a place to sit comfortably. Keep your back straight.

The Meditation

[Consider recording the following words on your smartphone, and then you can play the recording back. In this way, you would be guided through the process by your own voice.]

First, close your eyes. Notice that the light begins to fade around you. Slowly at first, then it gets darker and darker. Until you are in total darkness, where you feel safe and secure.

(Pause)

Then, just as the darkness came, it leaves. The light returns, slowly at first. Gradually, it gets brighter and brighter. Notice you are in a new place—standing inside a great temple. In front, you find a large stone altar, and you step up to it.

On the altar’s right, you see a large cauldron. Within it, fire burns brightly. It is warm and soothing.

Turning back to the altar, you view three objects resting on the smooth surface. Each of these objects represents a trigger in you. They can represent any belief that keeps you sad, scared or angry.

Picking up the first object, you examine it closely. It is round and light.

(Pause)

You aim the object at the cauldron and continue to feel the warmth of the fire. Toss the object into the fire, and watch as it is consumed by the flames.

Smoke rises from the burning ball. You marvel as you see something in the smoke. Realize that this object in the smoke represents an unknown trigger inside you. Perhaps, it is the source of your sadness or fear—or anger.

(Pause)

Go to the altar. Pick up the second object. Examine it and notice it is round and light.

(Pause)

You aim the object at the cauldron and continue to feel the warmth of the fire. Toss the object into the fire, and watch as it is consumed by the flames.

Smoke rises from the burning ball. You marvel as you see something in the smoke.  Realize that this object in the smoke represents an unknown trigger inside you. Perhaps, it is the source of your sadness or fear—or anger.

(Pause)

Turn to the final object on the altar. Pick up this last object and examine it, finding it to be round and light.

(Pause)

You aim the object at the cauldron and continue to feel the warmth of the fire. Toss the object into the fire, and watch as it is consumed by the flames.

Smoke rises from the burning ball. You marvel as you see something in the smoke.  Realize that this object in the smoke represents an unknown trigger inside you. Perhaps, it is the source of your sadness or fear—or anger.

(Pause)

Step back from the cauldron. Notice something that you didn’t perceive before. Now resting on the left side of the altar, you find a small silver chest—about the size of a shoebox.

Feel something in your pocket. Pull out the object—the key of knowledge and truth. You find the place to insert the key into the chest. Upon using the key, you hear a quiet click, and the chest opens.

Inside, you see three new and different objects. Pick them up and then find a comfortable place to sit down. Realize that these objects represent three positive truths. These objects are the keys to learning how to grow beyond your old triggers.

(Pause)

Your time here is done. Place these new objects safely into your pocket.

Breathe deeply. One … Two … Three. Notice the light begins to fade around you. Slowly at first, it gets darker and darker. Until you are in total darkness, where you feel safe and secure.

(Pause)

Then, just as the darkness came, it leaves. The light returns, slowly at first. Gradually, it gets brighter and brighter. The light is back. Now open your eyes and see you are back from your meditation. You are safe, feeling refreshed.


May this meditation empower you to find your personal purpose.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

Mead—Mix and Make—the Wiccan way.

“What is it?” I asked.

“You’ll have to open it,” John said.

I opened the large box that contained my holiday gift. Inside, I found a brewing kit. “Perfect!”

When I was in my mid-20s, I brewed mead. However, I lost my equipment in the move from my childhood home.

It had been a long time since I brewed anything, so I needed a refresher. So, I purchased a book about mead-brewing.

I eagerly read the book—and that takes some doing since I’m dyslexic. Learning about Vikings and how they brewed mead had my attention.

Today, I am once again excited to try my hand at brewing mead. However, this time I am trying an open-air brewing technique I found in the book. It’s brewing done old school—like our ancestors did long ago. Along this line, Wiccans like brewing mead.

Instead of using commercial yeast, I will be harvesting wild yeast. This is something our ancestors did at the beginning of their brewing exploits.

So, I gathered up all the equipment and ingredients that I needed, including a rod to mix my brew. I would dedicate my mead-brewing efforts to the God and Goddess. I wanted to make the mixing rod a sacred tool. Therefore, I wrote a blessing to imbue my new mixing rod with the powers of the God and Goddess.

Mixing Rod Blessing

Blessed Be this Sacred Rod
May it Bestow with Healing Energies of the Gods
Let my Rod mix my brew
With Health, Wealth, Peace, and Joy anew
All who taste the brew mixed with this Rod
May Find Everlasting Blessedness from the Gods
As I will, So Mote It Be

In the next days, I’ll see how my renewed interest in mead-brewing goes.

Are you considering adding something new to your daily activities?

May your adventures go well.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

Real Comfort for Wiccans – Talking to the Gods

 

“I’ve got this lump in my breast,” I said to my husband. Shook up, he sat down in a chair. He’d been through the breast cancer journey with his mother. He had to hold her hand while she was having a lumpectomy under local anesthetic.

This was the beginning of my health-related journey.

My husband usually asks, “Would you consider doing ___?” But when he heard about the lump in my breast he said, “We need some other way of talking. I’m asking that you to do something other than ‘consider.’ Would you please take immediate action? Okay?”

I called at 7 AM the next morning to make an appointment. The staff took the situation seriously and set up my appointment at 2:30 pm that same day.

  • Communication with God and Goddess

As I drove to my appointment I prayed and asked the God and Goddess for Their input.

Suddenly I felt calm inside as They answered, “It’s not cancer.”

Still, the doctor examined me and said, “I don’t know what that mass is. Time for you to get your first mammogram.” 

  • Communication with People

When I got home, I told my husband that I didn’t think it was anything and told him not to worry. I learned later that my comment provided him with no relief from his worries. He later said, “I would have appreciated if you had told me that you had communicated with the God and Goddess. Why? Because when you said, ‘I think’… I didn’t know what that was. Maybe you might have been in denial.”

Telling people you love what’s going on is important. I could have relieved my husband from much of his burden of worry by just letting him know what the God and Goddess told me.

Ultimately, I had both a mammogram and an ultrasound test.

The results? Benign cysts.

Phew!

Still, I’m invited by my doctor to continue monitoring the situation.

In summary, remember to make good efforts to communicate with both the Gods and your loved ones.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Wiccans Reverse a Curse or Hex

 

“I’m concerned about curses. How can I protect myself?” one of my readers asked.

Here’s an easy Hex-breaking Candle Spell.

What you will need:

  • One black chime candle
  • One brown chime candle
  • One white chime candle
  • Sea salt
  • A picture of yourself
  • Cookie sheet or pan
  • Tinfoil

What to do:

Cover the cookie sheet with your tinfoil.

Start at the middle of the pan, and pour a line of salt, going from left to right.

Place your picture on the right end of your salt line.

Make a circle around your picture by pouring salt to create that circle. Make sure the salt-circle connects to the salt-line you previously made.

Set the black candle on the left side, at the starting end of the salt-line.

Place the brown candle in the middle of the line, and finally set the white candle on the end of the line, next to your picture.

Think of all the stuff that has been going wrong in your life. Really get your emotions into it. Once you have worked yourself up, light the black candle. Next, light the brown candle. Imagine all the muck draining away from your life.

It’s important to breathe deeply, as you focus on the bad stuff leaving your life for good. Take your time.

Once you have envisioned the muck completely vanishing from your life, light the white candle.

You can meditate on the good things you would like to see manifest in your life.

IMPORTANT: Let all the candles burn themselves completely out. And make sure to avoid leaving a burning candle unattended.

May this Hex-breaking Candle Spell help you move forward in your life.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How do I Create a Wiccan Daily Practice?

Often, I’m asked about how Wiccans can really support their relationship with God and Goddess and deepen their Wiccan spiritual practice.

I often share The Three Elements to Improve Your Wiccan Practice.

  • What do you want to accomplish?

The whole point in much of Wicca is being close to the Gods. All the ritual we do, all the meditating we do—it’s about getting to the ecstatic state of being closer to the Source.

Do you want to start a meditation practice? Or how about doing more ritual each week? In creating a daily practice, you first have to figure out what you’re going to do.

Maybe you want to hone your magickal skills.

Here’s the first thing to consider: Start with something easy. Avoid setting yourself up to fail.

Start with something simple. You could do a simple candle lighting ceremony, for example.

  • How much time do you have?

Here’s the good news: Whatever time you have, you can make your Wiccan spiritual practice better.

Some examples:

1 minute – say a prayer or chant (out loud)

3 to 5 minutes – Have a brief meditation session.

30 minutes – Do a simple ritual. Perhaps, include a candle lighting ceremony and some meditation.

1 hour – Do a formal ritual.

The more time you have, the more you can do. Just remember to pace yourself.

Even if you have only a short time to spare, you can still get big benefits. How? Practice will help you hone whatever skill/discipline you are trying to work with.

Even doing a three-minute meditation session will bring you results over time.

  • How will you log it?

Logging your practice is crucial. If you do not log your actions, you really don’t know if you’re making any progress.

Some people use a diary. Diaries are great to log what you did, the duration of your practice, and what the outcome was.

What if you don’t like to write? No problem. You can use your smartphone to record your progress. You can pick an app to log your efforts.

Otherwise, you can simply mark a paper-based calendar on the days you successfully complete your practice.

Wiccans also find that having another Wiccan as your “accountability buddy” helps.

*  *  *  *  * *

In summary, you can accomplish much even with a short time—when you do things daily. Use The Three Elements to Improve Your Wiccan Practice.

May this process help you.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Wiccans Revitalize When Feeling Overwhelmed

“I’m so tired. I’ve been working my regular job and trying to do my art on the side,” Jessica said, in an exhausted whisper.

“How’s it going?” I asked.

“I am just way overworked, and I don’t know what to do.”

So, what is a witch to do?

What really helps is a Two-Step Release and Recover Process.

We’ve all heard about draining out negative energy. It’s also important to take the next step and fill up with positive energy.

What you will need:

  • Consecrated, blessed oil (for anointing yourself)
  • Two candles
  • Incense
  • Salt
  • Cleansing Herbs
  • Nylon stocking
  • Lighter

Step One: Ritual Bath to Release Stress and Negative Energy:

Take an evening to just lounge in a ritual bath.

  • Place appropriate herbs into a sheer nylon stocking. Use the soothing fragrance of Lavender. (Perhaps, you might find other herbs that calm you.)
  • Pour a bit of salt into your bath water. Place your herb-bundle into your hot bath water.
  • Light two candles and some incense.
  • Recline into the water. Breathe deeply. Close your eyes and call on the Lord and Lady to help you release all the toxins into your bath water.
  • Let all your stress drain down and away—after your bath.

Step Two: The Special Ritual Anointing of Your Body to Revitalize Your Energy

  • Apply your consecrated oil onto your skin. Visualize that the Lord and Lady are embracing you with positive energy.
  • Say aloud (you can repeat this chant throughout the anointing of your body):

Lord and Lady,
Enwrap me with Your Love
Strengthen my body,
Revitalize my energy.
So, mote it be.

May this process bless your life.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How to Do An Extraordinary Prosperity Spell – The Secret of Whole Life Prosperity

 

“This is the time of increase?” my friend, Adam, asked.

“Yes. We’re getting close to Spring. This is a good time to cast a Prosperity Spell.”

Let’s look at what “prosperity” is. I don’t limit it to just a plethora of money. I am talking about your whole well-being. Prosperity is having an abundance of loving friends, family, good physical health, healthy finances and a good relationship to the God and Goddess.

Have you noticed that having some amount of all these things helps you feel more whole and happy?

I felt great when a sudden inspiration flowed to me from the Goddess to combine the four Elements in a coherent pattern that I call the Four Foundations of Whole Life Prosperity.

Here are the Four Foundations of Whole Life Prosperity in the terms of the four Elements/Directions:

Spiritual/East – Element: Air

Having a close relationship with the God and Goddess is key to a good and happy life.

Consider meditation as a helpful way to communicate with God and Goddess. In meditation, you can have your finger on the pulse with the Divine, which helps you create the balance your spirit craves. Your Spirit needs to be close to the God and Goddess. It hungers for a relationship with Them.

With this strong connection, the other Foundations of Whole Life Prosperity will come to you.

Health/South – Element: Fire

I’ve thought of the Element of Fire because the Spark of Life, as in good health, supports your prosperous life. Sleep enough, eat healthy meals and get appropriate exercise. After all, our bodies are temples to the Gods. Keep your body in good running order and cherish your body. Nurture your body by bathing regularly and do the rest to keep your body at its best.

We don’t need to fall for the media ideas of what a stereotypically attractive body looks like. You don’t need to be wafer thin. It’s reported that a number of models are actually unhealthy.

Take good care of your body—as the gift you have. Move in the direction of prosperous health.

Love/West – Element: Water

What does “prosperous in love” mean? I suggest we do what helps us have good relationships.

A friend asked, “What do you think is important to find in a romantic partner?”

My husband replied, “Find someone who is kind and flexible.”

I agree, and I’ve learned that it’s important for me to do rituals and meditation to keep myself strong enough to be kind and flexible. A dash of humor helps.

Taking good care of your relationships helps you support your overall prosperity.

Finances/Earth – Element Earth

A number of my friends complain and worry about their finances. I admit it: I get concerned, too. I’m doing fine, but I have this nagging concern about ending up a homeless person. My husband is ten years older than I am. How will things be after he passes on?

I’ve learned that meditation and rituals can bring about some peace of mind.

How about you? Would you benefit from doing rituals to enhance your peace of mind?

Doing a Prosperity Spell can bring in some income. Having the opportunity to do something nice for yourself (having a dinner, seeing a movie) can do wonders for your feelings and sense that we live in an abundant Universe.

Putting It All Together

Bringing together Spirit, health, love and appropriate finances enhances your experience of a whole and happy life.

Use this following is a spell to help you move forward.

The Whole Life Prosperity Spell

What you will need:

  • Altar and regular ritual tools
  • Image (as seen above)
  • 1 small rough pebble (North)
  • 1 unused easy light match (south)
  • 1 thimble of water (West)
  • 1 Incense cone and holder (Air)

Do this spell on a waxing moon, closest to the full moon. Focus on this spell to enhance prosperity in various facets of your life.

Cast Circle in the normal manner.

After cleansing and consecrating the items representing the four elements, place the graphic/picture (with this post) on the altar. Set the items (that represent the elements) on their representative cardinal points.

Meditate on your life being full of what you desire. Once you have a firm feeling about what you want, continue with the next steps.

(Light the match on the rock.)

Fire burns in my veins with health,

(Dip index finger into the thimble of water, touch the water to your lips, and say)

Water surrounds me with the love I desire,

(Tap the rock three times.)

Earth provides that I am financially secure, and I enjoy  financial abundance, 

(Light incense from the working candle.)

And Air sends this spell and my love to the God and Goddess.

Do the Cakes and Wine Ceremony

Close your Circle.

May this Prosperity Spell enhance your life and happiness.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater
