How Witches Blossom with Beginnings, Endings and Chapters of Life

Rainbow

Are you going through some time of ending—at this moment?

Maybe, part of what hurts for many of us about Valentine’s Day is that we’re aware of what we don’t have or even what we do have that will end.

Many things end, including our childhood and our innocence. Many of us seek to find some way to deal with endings so we can become stronger.

I have three insights for you:

  1. Savor the sweetness of that prior Chapter of Life

For example, PantheaCon on February 14, 2020, has its 26th and final incarnation. The first time, I felt overwhelmed by the feeling of kinship with the attendees. PantheaCon is where I learned the Tarot and where I made many new friends. Each year, I came home to PantheaCon and saw individuals I otherwise did not see during the year. I learned much from so many people there. I met one of my Spirit Guides during a ritual conducted at PantheaCon.

Now, I realize that I have these sweet memories. And, from February 14th to 17th, I am blessed to make a few more sweet memories.

  1. Make space for your grief

Over the next couple of weeks, I might find myself having tears as I think about PantheaCon fading away like something in your rearview mirror.

I expect to go to the closing ceremonies of this final incarnation of PantheaCon. That will be a way for me to fully experience the process. I remember attending the funeral of a friend. I had tears. I made space for my grief.

In the next couple of weeks, I’ll light a candle of thanks for the many great moments I’ve experienced at PantheaCon.

  1. Look to the horizon for what’s next and carry your lessons

One thing I learned during my first two times of attending PantheaCon was the wisdom to ground my personal energy. Being around so many like-minded people was invigorating. I needed to ground my energy so I could comfortably fall asleep each night.

As I look to the horizon for other possible pagan gatherings, I retain what I learned. For example, I wear a hematite necklace that helps ground energy around me.

May the beginnings and endings of Chapters of Life bless your journey,

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Follow Goddess into New Possibilities

Path in the woods

“Well, that was harsh,” my friend, Alicia, said. She had just heard family members tear apart her dreams of owning her own business.

“How can I pick myself up after that?” she asked.

“I’ve learned that people only know what they know. It helps to go to Goddess for support and guidance to see what is really possible,” I said.

People are just doing what they feel is best for you. But most of the time they really don’t know what your True Path is, and they can only hurt you more by shutting you down. The only ones who know are the Gods and you. And sometimes you have a hard time seeing it by yourself.

Here is a prayer I call Goddess Open My Eyes.

Goddess open my eyes to see
All wonderful, new possibilities.
Far and near
To the side and more
Let me see
All open doors.
Support me to move forward
Although I’m uncertain.
Goddess, you know my path
Beyond all burdens.
So Mote It Be.

May these insights support you on your journey.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Connect with Their Creative Energy

As a witch, do you feel that you’re dancing to your own music while other people are moving at a different rhythm?

We can connect with our freedom to be creative and imaginative.

However, if we get caught up in the mundane world of fear and chaotic energy, we can lose an important part of ourselves. This can be tragic. As witches, we live on the level with magick and the Gods we honor. It’s a multi-spectrum world of color. But if we succumb to the mundane world, we fall into the monochrome world of cowens or mundanes (non-magickal people).

So how do we avoid putting on monochrome glasses?

  1. Devote time to read your sacred texts

You can refresh your mind with your handed-down BOS or a book by a favorite spiritual author.

You can create your own sacred text—your own BOS. Place your spells, your dreams and so much more about your magickal life into your personal BOS. Add colors, pictures and photos. You can go beyond simple, handwritten notes.

  1. Get into nature

As I mentioned in my recent post, make movement part of your daily life. This helps you have more energy for conducting your rituals.

Movement in nature, sometimes called Forest Bathing, can give you a wonderful, renewing experience. You can expand your powers. Not only do you work your body, but also you clean your aura when walking in a forest.

Natural landscapes and animals help you not only uplift your spirit. They also help activate your intuition and your second sight. You can communicate with trees and animals. Sense the energies they put out. All these things will help you grow.

  1. Attend Pagan Gatherings

Get out of your mundane world and attend a pagan gathering. You strengthen bonds with others and your Gods. You can learn from fellow witches and other magickal people.

Many witches find that at gatherings, they can express themselves as their creative selves. Some witches find it uplifting to offer a workshop about something they really love about being a witch.

May these insights support your journey.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Use Movement to Create Magickal Energy

Casting Circle
Casting Circle

“When you use movement, you’re creating power,” I responded to a friend after she attended her first coven gathering.

“So, that’s what you and your coven mates were doing when you all pointed your athames to the East?” she said.

I nodded.

When I was eight years old, I naturally set up an altar in the woods. I also walked around and settled quietly. Birds would approach because they found my energy to be inviting and peaceful.

As I grew older, and spiritual elders taught me about Wicca, I noticed some details about Wiccans and movement.

Here are three insights:

  1. Movement creates energy

Some covens use instruments like drums to create movement and sound. People will clap their hands and sometimes use dance to create energy. Once you’ve cleansed the area, you can use movement to create the type of energy you desire.

  1. Your body functions better when you honor it by moving

Some spiritual paths focus on the rational mind. In such paths, we notice a big emphasis on scriptures and arguing about what certain passages mean.

On the other hand, Wicca honors nature, intuition, and the temple (body) we have been given. My habit of having a daily walk helps me raise energy better when I gather with coven mates.

  1. Having a sedentary lifestyle actually hurts your spiritual practice

Neuroscientists note that the brain likes to conserve energy. Making decisions uses up energy. In fact, researchers talk about decision fatigue. By the end of the day, a person can be too tired to take a daily walk. I’ve noticed that it’s like a machine that rusts by just sitting there.

Some people like to live in their heads. Instead, Wicca calls on us to move every day. I remember a spiritual elder said, “Be a good animal.” This reminds me that my body wants to move. It was designed to move. Earlier in my life, when I was 40 pounds heavier, being heavy enticed me to just sit and not move.

Now, I’m more conscious that getting in daily exercise is part of my spiritual path. I want my body to help me create energy in rituals.

May these insights help you on your path.

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 Veteran Witches Can Avoid Traps that Stunt Your Spiritual Growth

“What are real traps that veteran witches can fall into?” my friend, Amanda, asked.

I thought about this over a couple days, and certain ideas rose into my thoughts.

  1. Avoid becoming stale in your practice

It’s understandable that many of us fall into a comfortable pattern. This is a path created by not trying new things. Instead, consider writing your own rituals and spells. In my books, I’ve shared a number of rituals, and you can use prewritten rituals as inspiration—on your way to creating your own original rituals.

  1. Avoid getting stuck in comparison patterns

I’ve talked with a number of fellow witches. Sometimes, I get surprised at how certain people compare themselves with spiritual elders. One of my friends said, “I cannot even breathe the same air as [a particular spiritual elder].”

I’ve noticed that all we get from such comparisons is misery. It also restricts us from even trying to expand our spiritual practice. Instead, I suggest that you focus on your own path and get into a place of acceptance that everybody else is on their own separate journey. How soon and what we learn is an individualized experience.

  1. Step away from feeling superior to a novice

In different circles, we hear about certain authors or teachers who seem to come across like they feel they’re superior to their readers or students. This is a trap.

When we get stuck in any focus on our own ego, we’re basically putting a restriction on our spiritual growth. Over the years as I’ve answered many questions, I have found it truly helpful that students will ask me things that will spark new ideas.

At times, I need to do research or talk with spiritual elders so that I can provide useful material. This is an example in which a student can bring a fresh approach that can uplift us all.

I’ve learned that having a healthy approach with humility clears the path to spiritual growth.

May these insights help you on your path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater
