Look at Your Life with Goddess’s Eyes

How is life going for you? Are you feeling pressured with work, family, friends, and personal pursuits?

If so, I’m with you. It can be hard to prioritize what to do when obligations weigh heavily on your shoulders.

Then, I had an intuitive nudge. It’s embodied in this question: How would Goddess help me prioritize for my enjoying a fulfilling life?”

  1. Goddess wants you to grow

Goddess wants all Her children to grow. This means learning our lessons and conquering our fears.

What kind of lessons? This varies by the individual. You set up your goals for your lessons before you were born. These lessons can be things like forgiveness, handling fear, or finding love for yourself.

  1. Goddess encourages you to prioritize your health and safety

I realize that I have sometimes, faltered about my own health. Sometimes, I’ve hesitated to go to the Emergency Room when my asthma was overwhelming.

How about you? Are you prioritizing your health? Good sleep, good nutrition, time devoted to nurturing your relationships …

Let’s remember that Goddess wants us to care for ourselves. After all, our bodies are the temples of the Gods. Goddess wants us to be healthy and happy while we are on this earth.

  1. Goddess wants a better connection with you

Sometimes, I get the impression that Goddess might say, “It’d be nice if you called once in a while.” How? We can do ritual and have meditation sessions to connect with the Goddess and God. Even a 5-minute meditation session is better than nothing.

Along these lines, my new book Goddess Has the Answers to Life’s Tough Problems just debuted on Amazon. CLICK HERE to “look inside” my 9th book. For many of us, “9” is a sacred number, and I feel great about this book! I know that many readers will find support to grow and pick up insights that we, Wiccans, have discovered over the decades.

May these ideas support you in your journey.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

Goddess Is the Source of Your Certainty

 

“Why is it getting worse?” my friend, Stephanie, said.

“I know there’s a lot happening. Anything in particular?” I replied.

“More violence in this country!” Stephanie said. And, this began a significant conversation.

What if Goddess Serves as Your Source of Certainty?

Is it possible to be certain of anything, anymore? Some people complain, “Unbelievable. I could not even imagine that people in leadership positions would be so … disgusting.”

I’ve learned that there is value in seeing ourselves as “spiritual beings having a human experience.”

As many of you know, I believe in the Summerlands, a place of love and peace in between the times we incarnate. We return and incarnate into a new body, and the lessons begin. We use our bodies as a user-interface for our spiritual being to learn lessons on this physical plane.

I realize that it can be tough to see this spiritual level when we’re in the midst of suffering and confusion. It’s as if we’re wearing “human-tinted glasses.” I suggest that we pause and consider looking at our lives from Goddess’s perspective. Goddess knows.

A Source of Comfort

Sometimes, I return to The Charge of the Goddess for inspiration and comfort.

“Let my worship be within the heart that rejoiceth, for behold: all acts of love and pleasure are my rituals. And therefore, let there be beauty and strength, power and compassion, honor and humility, mirth and reverence within you.” – Doreen Valiente (speaking in the voice of the Goddess—from The Charge of the Goddess)

A couple of meanings rise up for me with the above quote.

Notice the phrase “all acts of love and pleasure are my rituals,” and see that the Goddess gives us the answer. We can derive comfort in honoring Her with our compassion, reverence, humility and more. Acts of kindness and beauty honor the Goddess and make us feel good.

A Prayer

Dear Goddess
Release me from my stale, limited beliefs
And give me compassion and mirth in heaps.
Acts of love and Acts of pleasure.
I honor You in this way forever.

May the ideas expressed here comfort you and invite you to listen to your heart. May compassion for others flourish in your heart.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

When the Tarot Gives You a Bad Reading — What You Can Do

“So, I put the Tarot spread down, and then I caught my breath,” one of my Wiccan elders told me.

“Then what happened?” I asked.

“I knew that it was going to be tough to express what the cards were saying to my friend,” my Wiccan elder said.

I understood the situation. She was going to have to tell her friend something that she did not want to hear.

A significant number of people are concerned about having to face a “bad reading.” It’s tough enough to talk about it. It can be even harder to face a tough Tarot reading that applies to you.

Here are three steps to help you work through the dark waters of bad news.

  1. Postpone Being Upset by Doing a Meditation

Go into meditation and ask for Goddess’s Viewpoint on the matter. You may be surprised! Some events that look bad at first glance are actually good news.

I have a friend who taught college students. She worked at many different colleges to make ends meet. One day she was doing a reading and saw that she would stop teaching college students. She was devastated.

Then, she did a meditation and asked the Goddess what to do …

  1. Do Another Spread the Next Day

She asked the question “If I do _____, what is the outcome?” When she read the answer, she was puzzled. It gave her the same answer as the day before.

So, she repeated the step of meditation to ask for guidance and to see the situation clearly.

She also talked with her Wiccan Elders and other trustworthy people.

  1. Take Positive Action and Add Meditation

The next day she did what she hoped was a positive action related to her situation. She signed up for a Toastmasters group (a group where people practice public speaking)—based on a vague notion that she might become a life coach and giving speeches would help her find clients.

She now says that she gets to work with clients who really want her help—which is quite different from teaching required college classes. She is now free of half-hearted efforts from a significant number of college students. (She hated giving out bad grades.)

So, the “Bad News” that she thought she had received turned out to be a blessing to help her make a transition into what she was meant to do.

Doing meditation sessions and asking for Goddess’s viewpoint can really open up possibilities in your life. Not all endings are bad—although they might include pain at first.

May these three steps help you as you discover your next chapter of life.

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 Wiccans Free Themselves from Limits

“I’m stuck. I keep ruminating on how that person betrayed me,” my friend, Leena, said. “If I could just get past this—get beyond this.”

I listened with concern for my friend.

Becoming a High Priestess, I worked for years to learn oath-bound rituals to transcend my earthly concerns. It took a lot of work, but with private rituals, I have discovered how to deeply connect with the Goddess.

Wicca is a path of transcendence, which refers to “existence or experience beyond the normal or physical level.”

Beyond the normal … are we referring to positive or negative experiences?

Perhaps, like me, you’ve experienced some downright horrible events in your life. The good news is that, through Wicca, we can move beyond darkness to that which includes love and light. We have the power to use magick, and we can invite the God and Goddess to help us rise above the darkness of our negative past experiences.

Maybe, you’ve heard the term transformation a number of times. To transform however is to change in character or condition.

I have looked upon transformation as something that requires a lot of effort.

Remember, transcendence is something different. As we noted, it is beyond the normal or physical level. Think of it like this: Transcendence can happen in an instant. For example, some time ago, in the middle of one of my meditation sessions, the God and Goddess appeared to me. This was not something I “forced” or “transformed.” Instead, it was an experience that just manifested. I flowed into beyond the normal or physical.

So, what does this all boil down to?

Transcendence is something you invite, and you do not force.

Here is a prayer that you can use to create transcendence in your life by changing bad experiences into good emotions.

Transcendence Prayer

By love and light,
By Old Ones’ might!
I ask for Transcendence of my (name of difficulty) in Your Name.
May You take it and make it tame.
That You turn it into love and light,
So I will be all right!
Let there be a shift in me, from darkness into light.
Let transcendence lift me and take flight.
By all the powers of the Sun, Moon and in Old Ones’ Name,
Keep me safe and keep me sane.
Keep me above the dark waters that I tread within my mind.
Let me leave my heartache and sorrow behind.
Create growth for me and my life with no end.
Through every hill and bend.
Pain and fear from (name of difficulty) abate,
So I have only a good fate.
This (name of difficulty) does not define me!
It does not hinder or take me!
The love of the Lord and Lady ever fills me,
As I so will, So Mote It Be!

May this prayer carry you forward and help you transcend that which held you back.

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 You Can Interweave Wicca with Your Daily Life

Savvy Wiccans learn to interweave their practice in the spare moments of daily life.

  • Read and study during your lunch break.

You can bring your e-reader or book wherever you go. If you’re uncomfortable about people seeing the cover of your paperback book, use some paper and make a simple cover. Study during your breaks during the day.

Catching five minutes and ten minutes here and there can keep you on track to grow in the Craft.

  • Take five minutes in the morning for the God and Goddess.

Meditation is a great way to start the day. Communicating with the Gods and checking in with Them can keep you on your track for a closer bond with Them. It’s important to keep the lines of communication open with the Gods. Even a five-minute meditation session can make a real difference.

  • When cooking, choose foods based on their magickal benefits.

Many of us cook daily, anyway. So, it’s a good idea to enhance your Wiccan practice with how you make good choices about the foods you eat.

For example, if you’re looking for love, cook a meal using basil. Basil can be used for attracting wealth, too. Talk about a double-benefit!

Need protection, try garlic. Make some garlic bread to go with pasta. Many Wiccans use garlic for healing, too. Consider adding garlic to chicken soup for a wonderful taste. This works well for healing from colds and flus.

Create your own cooking style.

  • Take a daily walk around trees.

Even just a ten-minute walk can give you an experience of communing with nature and feeling the healing from the Gods.

Walking around in nature helps scrub your aura. Furthermore, such a walk drains negative energy out of your body. No wonder doctors have started prescribing walking in nature—now called “ecotherapy.”

In summary, here is an example of how Laura incorporates Wiccan practice in her daily life. She wakes up 10 minutes early and gets in her 5-minute meditation. She walks in a park while listening to a Wiccan audio book during her break. She eats her “prosperity soup” during her lunchbreak.

As we’ve discussed: There are numerous ways to weave your magickal life into your mundane one.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

Goddess Style Weight Loss: Wiccans — Happy, Healthy and Confident

“Moonwater was telling me about her weight loss program, and it sounded like something I could do that didn’t cost me more than the normal groceries I buy, anyway. I started with an egg omelet in the morning with mushrooms and spinach. … In two weeks, I lost 7 lbs. I had a couple of days of eating what I wanted but not overeating. Then right back to Goddess Style. I feel great and eat what the Goddess gives us.” – Denise Kopplinger

Thank you for helping me see I’m not some freak because of circumstances throughout my life that have caused the blocks, and that i need to stop hiding from or burying them and face them one step at a time. – Crystal Sparks
