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

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

Depression, Suicide, and A Wiccan Path to Healing

Tulips

He had been tossed out of a branch of the armed forces. Why? Poor performance of his duties? No! It was his sexual orientation. A couple of years later, he killed himself. Often, every month, I remember my dear friend.

None of this is a theory to me. I’ve attempted suicide myself. The first time—when I was 8 years old.

Wiccans acknowledge that winter is the season of death. Death does not always mean the end of life. In the Tarot, the card “Death” also means change.

I know from my own journey that feeling the urge to kill oneself is a call for change—and a call for love.

During the winter, a significant number of people struggle with seasonal affect disorder.

For many of us who are enduring difficult times now, here is a meditation from my book Goddess Has Your Back to help you.

Self-Love Meditation

Close your eyes.
Breathe in and out deeply . . . Relax.
Keep breathing.
Breathe out the stress of the day.
Breathe in relaxation and peace.

(Pause)

You are still aware of the light that is in the room.
Now the light begins to fade.
As it fades you feel total comfort. You feel safe and secure in the darkness.

(Short Pause)

Now, a new form of light blossoms. It surrounds and wraps you in its loving energy. This light is the light of the Gods.
It is a light of love and compassion. Take it in.
As you take this light and understanding in, you can now see with the Gods’ eyes.
You can now see yourself as they see you, pure, beautiful, whole. You are a masterpiece of their creation. You were made with love, and you are a manifestation of their love. You are love.
This understanding fills you.

(Pause)

With this new understanding you are now ready to return to the physical world.
You know that even though you may leave the light at this time it is never truly gone.
It’s a gentle transition as the light begins to fade around you.
Slowly at first. It gets darker and darker.
As it fades you feel total comfort. You feel safe and secure in the darkness.

(Short Pause)

Then a familiar light returns, the light in the room where you started.
It gradually gets brighter and brighter.
You are back in the room. You have brought the calm and peace and happy feelings back with you.
Now, gently open your eyes.

I hope you find comfort with this meditation.

You can also meditate and ask the God and Goddess for help. Meditate on what the Gods see as a helping answer for you. Remember, the God and Goddess are always on your side.

If you’re in distress, please call the Suicide Hotline at: 1 (800) 273-8255

Yes—I have attempted suicide more than once. But now my life is good. It’s really worth it to endure the pain because life CAN get better.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How to Raise Your Low Self-esteem Through Wicca

“How can I let go of the feelings of sadness and low self-esteem?” Alexandra asked.

I’ve talked with many people who, like me, suffer from times of low self-esteem.

Here is a meditation to help those of us who need to raise our self-esteem.

Find a nice quiet spot, somewhere you will not be disturbed. Light a candle and burn some incense if you like. Turn off all of your electronics, and get comfortable.

In the below meditation, you will identify a worn, harmful belief. Then you will represent such a Harmful Belief as one “difficult-word.” For example, if your word is “can’t”—soon you will place it in the fire (in your mind’s eye). It will transform. For example, “can’t” can transform into “I CAN learn what I need to learn.” This is a New Belief.

Meditation to Raise Your Self-Esteem

Close your eyes.  Be aware of the light that is in the room through your closed eyelids.

Breathe in and out deeply … Relax.
Keep breathing deeply. In … and … Out.
Breathe out the stress of the day.
Breathe in relaxation and peace.

(Pause)

You are still aware of the light that is in the room.
Now the light begins to fade.
As it fades you feel total comfort. You feel safe and secure in the darkness.

(Short Pause)

Now, a new form of light blossoms around you.
You look down and see a cauldron.
Flames are fluttering from within the cauldron, and they rise to about four inches above the lip of the cauldron.

Pick one thought or memory of sadness or “I can’t do it.”
Now identify a word that represents the difficult thought.
See how the “difficult-word” appears to break down.

The difficult-word is now old and worn out.
You know in your heart that you no longer need the word.
It is time to let it go.

(Pause)

See your difficult-word. The flames in the cauldron
are flickering behind your difficult-word.
Now with your mind, push the difficult-word into the flames.
The difficult-word catches fire, and the fire completely consumes the difficult-word.  

(Pause)

The difficult-word disappears and soon a green colored smoke rises from the cauldron.
It starts to form your New Belief—which is in the form of a sentence.
This New Belief helps you and supports you.
Breathe in deeply and absorb the green, supportive New Belief.

(Pause)

The New Belief is now part of you, and you have gained its attributes.
Feel it. Know it is so.
You now return to the physical world, and you always know you have that positive attribute no matter what anyone says.

(Pause)

Coming back is a gentle transition as the light begins to fade around you once more.
Slowly at first, it gets darker and darker.
As it fades you feel total comfort. You feel safe and secure in the darkness.

(Short Pause)

Then a familiar light returns, the light in the room where you started.
It gradually gets brighter and brighter.
You are back in the room. You have brought the feelings of higher self-esteem and happiness back with you.

(Short Pause)

Now, gently open your eyes.

Use the above meditation as often as you need to. With a lot of practice, soon all of the bad thoughts about yourself can transform into the green smoke of renewal and higher self-esteem.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

See the Truth

Blind

“Now, do you believe?!” my sweetie said to me, as the plane lifted from the ground.

“Yeah, I do,” I replied.

For months, he said that we would take a plane, cross the country and then take a ship and finally walk on the ocean floor.

Because of dealing with depression symptoms, it was hard for me to really believe that our trip would actually take place. In a way, you might say my depression symptoms blocked me from seeing the possibilities.

This reminds me of the classic story in which blind men gathered to experience an elephant.

“It’s a pillar,” said the blind man embracing one leg.
“No, a hand fan,” said another holding an ear.
“You’re wrong, a rope,” said another.
“No, a wall.”
“A solid pipe,” said the one holding the tusk.

A wise man approached and explained, “You’re all right. You all experienced a part of the elephant. The elephant is all that you said and more.”

Finally, the blind men stopped arguing.

The same, I believe, is true about Deity. Everyone has a piece of the ALL. And what they don’t see is that it is all connected. It’s the same ALL that everyone else has. But they are experiencing the ALL in different ways, and this selective experience creates different practices and beliefs around the world.

So when I hear someone say that he knows the one and only God, I pause. I think of the elephant which is more than the sum of the parts.

Yes, I believe the God and Goddess are part of the ALL. But still I realize that Deity is more than my momentary perception.

And I’d invite anyone else to consider that other people are experiencing Deity in a way that suits them at the moment.

Let’s celebrate our shared opportunity to grow in spirit.

Blessings,

Moonwater SilverClaw

Secret of How to do Magick

What Makes People Believe?
What Makes People Believe?

  Secret of How to do Magick

When I first started doing magick it was really hit or miss, most often mess. My spell work was just not as effective as I wanted it to be. What was I doing wrong?

If you have wondered the same thing, you have probably done similar mistakes. For example, I’d do a money spell, but I’d just get new problems!

The real problem was, like many people, I just wanted a big payday. What I didn’t know was that this is really the wrong way to approach a lack of money.

Many, if not most, spells written today are focused on the external opportunities or even requesting gifts from the Gods. Focusing on just the external can create new problems.

What if I could tell you a Secret of how to do magick – in a way where your avoid ethics issues about money?

I have mentored a number of people about this Secret. Now I will share with you this Secret.

A phrase from the poem by Doreen Valiente entitled The Charge of the Goddess tells us how to do magick well. But many of us, like my younger self, just don’t see it. The line I’m talking about is: “…that if that which thou seekest thou findest not within thee, thou wilt never find it without thee.”

This line invites us to look within as we approach our magickal work.

Instead of focusing on how to get money from outside sources, focus within. How? Instead of asking for a handout from the universe, ask, “How I can create more energy in myself to obtain my desire? How can I make myself open to more prosperity?”

Let’s get more specific. You have been laid off and need a new job pronto! Bills are pilling up fast.

Let’s use a sigil for this purpose. (You can learn more about sigils in my sigils post.) Remember the Gods are here to help. You can call on them for inner strength.

How to phrase a sentence for a sigil to get a job:

  • All blocks I have put up, known and unknown, dissolve so I am a good candidate and my future employer hires me.
  • Help me express the inner strength, skills and energy so I can acquire a job of my liking.

Here are phrases for those who have an interest in an entrepreneurial path:

  • I find new ways to serve others successfully so money comes to me naturally.
  • All blocks I have put up, known and unknown, dissolve so I can create abundance in my life.

Can you see how each sentence or phrase focuses on inner change, not the external “give me, give me”? With these phrases you are not looking for a handout. You are creating the abundance by changing you.

This can be applied to the rest of your magick as well. Another example is love spells. Focus your magick on being more loving, or more open to love. Never do love spells upon a particular person. Instead do a spell to attract love to you in whatever form is appropriate by creating yourself as more loving.  

By focusing on inner change and developing our inner strengths, we can achieve our desires.

Blessings,

Moonwater SilverClaw
