How Witches Rise Above the Mundane World of Pain and Suffering

Free Yourself From Limitations

Does day-to-day life feel like it’s running you down? We, witches, know the mundane world has a large amount of suffering and pain. Just watch the evening news, and you can see it all. How can we heal in such a world?

This is when I think of the Goddess. Let’s look at The Charge of the Goddess by Doreen Valiente.

“If that which thou seekest thou findest not within thee, thou wilt never find it without thee.” – Doreen Valiente, writing in the voice of the Goddess, in The Charge of the Goddess

 The Goddess invites us to let go of looking to the mundane world for our inner peace and fulfillment.

This also reminds me of another quote:

“If you want to be happy, be.” – Leo Tolstoy

 The Gods put Their divinity within us. So, looking within is where we need to go for answers.  The Gods speak through that divinity within us to help us grow. We need to slow down, perhaps, for a meditation session or a prayer. We need to pause and be. Then we become aware of our inner divinity that Goddess placed in us. To be happy, we can pay attention and let our inner divinity shine.

 “In truth, there is only one mind.” – Erwin Schrodinger, Nobel Prize-winning Physicist

The God and Goddess have placed Their divinity in us. Pause for a moment. Let that sink in. We are connected with the God and Goddess. All that is good and uplifting is the one mind we share with the God and Goddess.

A Prayer

Goddess,
Help me feel deeply
That I am not finite
That You placed Your Divinity in me
That my soul rise above the mundane
And soar to the infinite joy in myself and You.
So Mote It Be.

May this process bless your journey.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Release Themselves from Body Type Shame

Are you, like me, feeling pressed down by the media stereotypes about beauty and an appropriate body type?

When I talk about body type, I make a significant distinction between what is healthy and the garbage of media stereotypes, showing fashion models who are actually physically sick and are too skinny.

We, women who are pagans, intellectually know that Goddess delights in many body types. However, the overwhelming pressure from the media to look in a certain, stereotypical way causes so much pain and suffering.

Let me express this from my heart. My own mother is morbidly obese, and she has serious suffering connected to her diabetes. She only walks short distances in the home, and she grunts in pain with every step.

Seeing my mother’s plight, I realized that I had to do something about how I exercise and how I connected with Goddess. I had to develop a way of eating so that I could stay healthy and avoid getting diabetes. With the help of spiritual elders, doctors, psychiatrists, and other professionals, I devoted myself (and a circle of team members working tens of hours) to create my online course Goddess Style Weight Loss.

At this time of Black Friday sales and all the commotion about these offers, I had some conflicting thoughts. But then I realized I had seen so many of my pagan friends running out of breath as they walked around at annual pagan events.

So, we’re talking about developing healthy habits so that you can support this wonderful temple—the body that the Goddess has given you. I took the inspiration that Goddess gave me to create my online course Goddess Style Weight Loss. And I am grateful that at this time of Black Friday sales that I’m able to, with udemy.com, create a coupon so that you can get this course for a dramatically reduced price.

How Witches Shift Away from Mundane World Lies

Does the mundane world feel overwhelming at times?

Here is a prayer to help you reconnect with the spiritual reality that the Gods support you every day and every minute.

I am loved in this moment Prayer

Lord and Lady,
Give me the experience to know
That I am loved in this moment.
To know that I am cherished and
Held dear to You.
Let me know I am cradled in Your hearts,
And release me from fear.

Keep me close in Your love.
Guide me to always remember Your
Embracing love for me.
So Mote It Be

Blessed Be,

Get Depression Relief this Thanksgiving-Yuletide…Black Friday Sale

Are you, like me, feeling that Thanksgiving and Yule Time is a trigger for feeling bad? It took me years and the guidance of spiritual elders, doctors, psychiatrists, and my own practice of Wicca, to learn how to cope and even feel okay during the holiday season.

Right now, everywhere I look, I’m seeing people say, Black Friday sale.

I had a few conflicting thoughts about this. But then I remembered the guidance I received from Goddess during one of my meditation sessions. The Goddess said, “Your fight may be someone’s light.”

So, what did I do about this? I followed the Goddess’s inspiration. I gathered a team around me and put together (it took tens of hours) my online course Spiritual Solution for Depression Relief.

I’m offering something to relieve the suffering of fellow pagans who are pressed down by depression symptoms. It is worth it to share the news—and during the Black Friday sale time.

Just recently, I noticed that more students joined my class. I felt some joy. (As someone with clinical depression, I know that is really something unusual). I remembered the Goddess telling me, “Your fight may be someone’s light.”

In the online course, I mention that it took me 16 years before I stopped calling myself “a depressed person.” I now think of myself as someone who is Not Broken. The Goddess put Her Divinity in me (and She put Her Divinity in you, too). I think of myself as a human being who deals with depression symptoms. The Goddess set me on this path for a purpose.

Here’s how you can get my online course Spiritual Solution for Depression Relief – for only $13.99 during the Black Friday Sale.

How Witches Shift Away from Worries

Are you worried? If so, I’m right here with you. Currently, my family is enduring some truly difficult problems. It’s taking my education from spiritual elders and experience in the Craft to help me cope with the worries.

Along this line, I’m sharing three insights.

  1. Focus on doing your ritual

Doing ritual is a way to really clear your head. Aim to standardize your Circle Casting. This routine will put you into a certain frame of mind. You’ll focus on the task at hand (your rite) and not the mundane-world problems you may be enduring.

A ritual can release you from a stagnant way of thinking and feeling. Consider this simple bathing ritual. See how to take a ritual bath here.

  1. Talk to the Gods through meditation

Taking to the Gods can help you figure things out.

A number of witches express how tough it is to settle into their meditation session. For that reason, I wrote my post How Witches Settle from Chaos into Their Meditation Session. That post’s suggestions can help you transition into your peaceful meditation session

Once you enter meditation, you can meet the God and Goddess and have a conversation with Them about your worries.

  1. Say a prayer for transformation

When they’re caught up in worries, witches often discover a need to experience transformation. A prayer can help.

A Transformation Prayer

 Goddess,
Shift me from worries
To possibilities
From fear
To new skills
From being stagnant
To Transformation in my life.
Let me not stay stuck in limited thinking
Guide my mind to open to new possibilities.
As I So Will, So Mote It Be

 May these insights help you on your journey.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Settle from Chaos into Their Meditation Session

“When I’m worried, I don’t want to settle down into a meditation session,” my friend, Jessica, said.

“What’s happening then?” I asked.

“If I settle down, then it would just be me and the worries—in the silence. I’d rather have my iPod on loud and stay busy. I want to be distracted,” she said.

I learned that a number of people have difficulties about settling down with a chaotic mind when they start a meditation session.

I have three insights you can apply to beginning a meditation session.

  1. Focus on your breathing

When you simply focus on your breath coming in and then flowing outwards, you can begin to calm down. The practice of slow, calm breaths can also help in other aspects of your life. The good news is that when you practice slow, calm breaths in meditation sessions, you can bring this conditioning to your stressful times with family or at work.

Anytime your mind wanders, redirect your attention to your gentle breathing in and out. Notice if your breath is fast or shallow. If so, slow down your breath and deepen it. Just concentrating on your breath will help you still your mind.

2. Repeat a phrase or mantra.
Once you have your breathing in a slow, deep, rhythmic pattern, you can then repeat a phrase or a mantra in your mind.

I’ll distinguish here between a helpful mantra and a stress-causing, old-fashioned affirmation*.

Here is an example of a helpful mantra: Goddess supports me in peace. This form of mantra is specific to this present moment.

(*On the other hand, a stress-causing, old-fashioned affirmation can sound like: “I am skinny.” This can cause stress if you feel a big gap between your present situation and your wish to have a different form of body shape.)

3. Begin with a set pattern
You can repeat the mantra while you meditate. Additionally, you can use another form of set pattern.

Here are some examples:

  1. Visualize that you’re walking down the steps of a staircase. This can help you go deeper during your meditation.
  2. Visualize that you’re standing in the middle of Standing Stones. For example, one set of Standing Stones is Stonehenge.
  3. Visualize that you’re sitting in a Sacred Grove of Oak Trees or another sacred spot.

Once you settle on a starting point, you can meet the God and Goddess there. In this way you can converse and devote time with the Gods.

May the above methods support your meditation practice.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Deal with “Tired of Being Afraid”

“How are you doing?” my friend, Sarah, asked me some time ago.

“I’m tired of being afraid,” I replied.

How about you? Do you find that much of your day is clouded by your feeling fearful?

  1. Identify the moments of “Calm Acceptance in this present moment.”

I’ve learned that much of fear is connected to focusing on the future.

I remember this quote:

“I have been through some terrible things in my life, some of which actually happened.” – Mark Twain

This quote reminds me that much that I’m afraid of is likely not to happen. For example, I was living in a particular location, and I thought that I would get kicked out. The truth is: I lived in that place for several years, and things were relatively peaceful.

In recent years, I’ve focused on this idea: Calm Acceptance. When I need to get to Calm Acceptance, I focus on the here and now. I look at this present moment and think about just taking one step at a time. My starting point is to realize I can only deal with this moment. Then I shift into the understanding that I am doing the best that I can.

  1. Shift to the focus on “The Gods will guide me to what I need to do.”

To help me shift to Calm Acceptance, I center my thoughts on The Gods will guide me to what I need to do. I ask the Gods to guide my actions for the best outcome.

Recently, I had a conversation with a friend who taught comparative religion. He noted that in some spiritual paths, there is an idea: “You are having a human life which includes just enough problems so you need to shift into guiding your mind to peace.”

Holding my faith that the Gods will guide me to what I need to do helps me to return to Calm Acceptance. Furthermore, I have faith that the Gods are guiding me with my purpose.

  1. Realize that the solution to fear is not about “just doing stuff in the mundane world”

When we are in fear mode, we’re often thinking about the mundane world problems in our lives. Just centering on the mundane world will keep you stuck. So much of the mundane world is about drama, agony, unsolvable problems, greed, apathy, and fear. Broadcast news and social media thrive on drama and pain. We, witches, must realize that we need to turn to the spiritual world for truth and the essence of the universe.

Witches realize that the spiritual world is just as important as the mundane one. Both have their part in our lives. When we focus too much on one or the other, we find that we get into trouble.

Keeping busy is one thing. But ducking reality in either the spiritual realm or mundane realm is inappropriate. We need balance. Doing ritual and meditation can help you rise out of obsessive thoughts on only mundane world problems.

Instead, you can focus on this prayer:

Goddess, nurture me to know that my fear
Is merely a signal.
Time for me to shift to Calm Acceptance.
Lead me, guide me
That my fears not cast me astray.
Help me focus on balance.
Let Calm Acceptance lead the way.

May this process enrich your life.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater
