How Witches Find Their Personal Form of Spirituality

At 14 years old, I was sent on a spiritual retreat. The group leader said to find a spot in the forest and read a letter. That’s when I found out that it was written by my parents. Years later, when I thought about this process, I realized that my parents and their spiritual group were attempting to push me to see the world in their way.

Instead, while I was out in nature, I found my own understanding, and it wasn’t of their God, but of the God and Goddess.

This brings me to thoughts about how we, witches, find our personal form of spirituality.

Here are three insights:

  1. Discover how spirituality comforts you.

Have you had a moment in which you prayed to the Gods and felt support? Spirituality can be of great comfort. When we are worried, we may call on the God and Goddess and find comfort and often guidance.

When my depression symptoms flare up, I try to concentrate on the Gods and how They love me. They care about me every day. I try to slow down and take a few deep breaths in and out—and talk with the Gods. I tell them how I am feeling, and They send comfort and understanding. They are great listeners.

  1. Use your spiritual tools for great decision-making.

When I need to make a decision, I use my spiritual tools to help me. My favorite tools are the Tarot and meditation.

I also use a process I call “If this then that.” Here is how it works.

Samantha needs to make a decision about taking a new job. She goes into meditation and asks the Gods for a sign. She says, internally, “If this new job is a great match for me, please show me a red balloon.” Over the next days, she stays alert to see if she sees a red balloon. (You can choose whatever object feels appropriate to you.)

When it comes to using spiritual tools, sometimes, the Gods give you a completely different sign than what you asked for. That is when it’s valuable to keep up your meditation sessions. Over some days, you may receive more guidance.

  1. Nurture your personal growth and connect with the Gods.

As witches, we realize that personal growth is one of the most important things on this spiritual path. Working with the Gods helps us grow.

How do we nurture our personal growth with the God and Goddess? It’s about devoting time with Them.

We can connect with Them in a meditation session, a walk in nature, or by doing rituals.

Doing rituals dedicated to the Gods helps strengthen your bond with Them.

I’ve noticed that when I’m connecting with the Gods, I step out of daily worries.

When you’re feeling low energy, you can decide to do a brief meditation session, a prayer, a chant, or a simple ritual. Enjoy the resulting feeling of support and being personally nurtured by the Gods.

May these insights support you on your life path.

Blessed Be,

How Witches Receive Validation from the Gods

“Don’t worry about it,” I heard Donna say. In the middle of our phone conversation, Donna called out the “don’t worry” comment to her husband. The problem was that Donna did not truly listen to her husband.

It’s likely that her husband wanted to feel validated about his tough feelings and concern he had with a work-related situation.

Have you noticed that many times we try to soothe a friend or family member by saying something quick and simple? We say things like “It will be okay” – “You’ll find another job” – “There are more fish in the sea.”

At those times, our friend or family member just wants to be heard and assured that their uncomfortable feeling is justified. The person also wants to know that you empathize with their plight.

As witches, we know that the Gods provide us with real validation.

Here are three insights:

  1. Set up a potential encounter with the Gods for validation.

When I was a teen, I had a meditation session in which I met the God and Goddess. They enveloped me with love and care. This gave me the validation I really needed since I had grown up in household, tortured by my older brother and neglected by my parents.

This uplifting and validating meditation session took place after I had begun my study of valuable books on Wicca. The God and Goddess gave me clear validation that I was on the correct spiritual path for my life.

Will you set up a regularly scheduled meditation session for your daily life?

2. Find the clues of the Gods’ validation in your daily life.

In my life, I have experienced several clues. For example, I recently went to a medical center for a blood test. I stepped up to a machine and pulled the ticket that revealed your number in the line. The ticket read “9” – and that’s a sacred number. I felt reassured. One day later, my blood test revealed a healthy outcome.

I’m grateful for that clue.

Have you been experiencing truly rough moments recently? Sometimes, receiving positive clues from the Gods can give you the comfort you’re seeking. The Gods’ validation via clues can assure you that you’re on the right path.

Here’s a method. You can ask the Gods for a specific sign. You might ask the Gods, “If I am on the right path, please show me ____ today. If I am not on the right path, please show me ____ instead.”

For example, some time ago, I was baffled about a project. I asked the Gods, “If this is a project for me to get involved in, please show me a white rabbit.” The next day I went to the Filoli House and Garden for the first time and saw a white rabbit statue. That was reassuring.

2. Validation is valuable even when you don’t feel good.

I deal with depression symptoms. My husband frequently says supportive things that validate how I’m feeling.

I’m disappointed that I often cannot feel the warmth of his supportive comment because the depression symptoms block my positive feelings.

Should my husband give up and stop making the effort to say supportive comments to validate my feelings? No. Because if he did not say the loving, supportive comments … on some level, I would miss them. There would be a hole in my life.

My point is: Giving validation is still valuable even if your friend or loved one cannot take it in at this moment.

In summary, the Gods give us true validation. Additionally, the Gods placed some divinity in each of us. I suggest that your divinity can be kind to others and offer them validation, too.

May these insights support you on your life path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Reliably Access Intuition

In a moment, the lamp would explode.

I didn’t know that, but I felt something in my chest and head.

It told me, “Get out of here!” I ran from the kitchen to the patio.

In the next moments, the explosion of the camping lamp caused a fire in the kitchen, which sent my brother to the hospital with third-degree burns.

I was seven years old. In my household, my thoughts didn’t count. Besides, I only got the message a brief time before the explosion. I did not know what was going to happen so I didn’t have words to tell family members. I just received a warning of “Get out of here!”

Would you like your own intuition to warn you and to guide you to improve your life?

Here are three insights:

  1. Find the “space” of your intuition.

As I mentioned, I felt the intuitive message in my chest and head.

I think of this space as my intuition space. It’s the location in my body where I feel that my intuition communicates with me.

So, where is your intuition space? Where do you feel your intuition? Some people feel it in the pit of their stomach while others feel it in their heart. Others feel the tension in their shoulders or neck.

The point here is that we pay attention to how we feel and where we feel it.

  1. Allow the “time” of your intuition to manifest.

Do you ever wish you could just get an answer from your intuition now? I wish it worked that way, and sometimes it does.

But most of the time I find that it takes time to access your intuition.

So how do I get my intuition to manifest? I give it time. I may take a walk, get a nap or a night’s sleep, or at least take a break.

On occasion, I talk with people. I’m not just looking for their guidance. I’m looking for how I personally feel as I talk about a situation. It takes time to have appropriate conversations.

  1. Discover the Gods’ Perception of intuition.

A friend told me that he looks on intuition like his friend.

Consider this: If you give a friend guidance and they use it, you will feel good about giving more guidance.

The Gods have placed divinity in you. I suggest that your intuition is part of the divinity They placed in you. That divinity is related to your creativity. That creativity and divinity are where the God and Goddess communicate with you.

This is where your intuition is a bridge to the Gods. The Gods talk to you through your intuition.

The important thing is to remove the distractions so that you can pay attention to intuitive impressions the Gods give you. You can do this with a daily 5-minute meditation session. You can do a longer session if that fits your daily routine.

Other methods include doing ritual or taking a break for deep breathing. Find your own way to get yourself into a relaxed state. Or at least find a way to quiet down your experience of the moment. For example, I have a friend who assembles jigsaw puzzles.

Your intuition can be a wonderful guide in this chaotic world.

May these insights support your life path.

Blessed Be,

How Witches Open Themselves to the Power of the Gods’ Love in Their Lives

Has your mind been spinning with tough thoughts?

Some of us face so many worries that we feel like we’re drowning.

Martial arts masters, yoga instructors and philosophers say, “Empty your mind.”

For many of us, that feels that like a steep mountain to climb.

I’ve learned in discussions with spiritual mentors about possibilities of emptying one’s thoughts and making space for positive power.

Here are three insights about how to “empty then fill with power”

  1. Empty your mind of self-defeating thoughts

The Gods gave me an intuitive thought that has changed my life: “I am not broken.”

During my life, my experiences with dyslexia and depression symptoms have often felt like shackles.

For decades, I truly felt broken. Dyslexia and depression symptoms felt like injury plus insult.

Fortunately, my relationship with the Gods opened new doors for me. In my online course Spiritual Solution to Depression Relief, I mention that after 16 years, I finally stopped equating myself with depression.

I replaced saying, “I am depressed” with “I am dealing with depression symptoms.” I finally found myself to be a “whole” who deals with depression symptoms.

You see, it is not my spirit that is dyslexic or depressed. It is my body. My learning disability relates to my brain. My depression symptoms also arise from an imbalance of chemicals in my brain.

My brain is not me.

My brain is like an interface between my soul and the world.

I came to a new understanding of myself and my soul while in a meditation session, in which I met the God and Goddess. They flushed out my misery and replaced it with peace and love towards myself.

If you have self-defeating thoughts, try talking with the Gods. Perhaps, seek to experience a number of meditation sessions. Taking with the Gods can potentially help you release certain limiting beliefs that fill you with negativity.

Meditation and the Gods can help you empty yourself of such negativity.

  1. As you experience empty space, find out what positive thoughts you want to take in

Once you have talked to the Gods and flushed out the negative junk in your head, pause. Take a look at how They see you. The Gods don’t make junk.

How would you see yourself in Their eyes?

Heroes and sheroes come in all shapes and sizes. For those of us who deal with depression symptoms, getting out of bed in the morning can be a heroic act.

Have you thought about what makes a person heroic or courageous? I realize that a hero is someone who does not give up.

I trust that you’ve found yourself holding on—even in real tough times.

My understanding of how the Gods see me is: Here is a woman who does not give up. She gets help. She avails herself of therapy, medication and her spiritual practice.

If you feel up to it, you can try this exercise: Write down two things that bother you about yourself. Now, take in a breath.

Say this chant:

God and Goddess,
Lift the veil and open my eyes.
Let me see the sacred prize.
Show me how You see me.
Show me my gift of divinity.

Now, writing in the loving voice of the God and Goddess, write down six positive things about yourself. Pause. Breathe these loving thoughts into yourself.

  1. Ask the Gods for Their help.

Asking for the Gods for help can be as simple as going to someplace where you won’t be disturbed for five to ten minutes. Place a piece of paper and pen in easy reach.

Close your eyes and simply talk, internally, to the Gods. Breathe deeply and slowly. Allow yourself to calm down.

Once you are in the presence of the Lord and Lady, you can ask Them questions and seek Their guidance and help.

After you open your eyes, write down any positive thoughts or guidance that has arrived.

The Gods are there for you. They will help you and guide you to the answers you seek.

May these insights support you on your life path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Transform a Limit into Limitless

Has someone told you, ‘No, You can’t do that’?

Worse yet, did you believe it?

As witches, many of us have been pushed down and even reviled.

Here I want to share some ideas that startled me.

I was talking with a friend recently. He had just read a screenwriting book by a man with dyslexia.

My friend felt stunned. He read a book by a man who had not read all the screenwriting books due to his dyslexia. Still, the book author earns a good living as a screenwriter.

And Bonus: the dyslexic screenwriter’s book was … wait for it … easy to read.

My friend said, “This author transformed a limit into limitless.’”

That phrase sticks with me.

I have three insights for you:

  1. Work with the limit and find new possibilities.

First, we look at “what’s a limit?” It’s a perception. At about 10 years old, I had the feeling that I’d like to be a writer. But year after year, teachers would use “the red pen of death” upon my papers. They said that I needed many writing classes. It was so hard to read.

The teachers did nothing to show me that one can be a writer while dealing with dyslexia.

They said nothing about the separation between “writing, editing and proofreading.”

As I got “Ds” and “Fs,” I thought, “How am I supposed to do anything with this?”

In 2012, the Gods repeatedly gave me intuitive thoughts. It was not a sentence in my mind. Instead, it was Their message to me—sent as a feeling. “Start a blog.”

Huge fear gripped me. I talked about this with friends, and I said, “Dyslexic. Hello!”

How could I start a blog?

How would I write material that was clear enough?

I needed help. So, my sweetheart and friends said that they would help me.

And this leads up to the next step …

  1. Discover truth in collaboration.

What is truth in collaboration? It’s different in each individual and each particular situation.

I notice that intuition provides different answers to different people.

For example, I know two screenwriters. They’re good collaborative partners. One talks a lot! He’s good at writing dialogue. The other one comes up with a compelling, big idea for a story. Together, they push each other to make the writing better.

When do witches collaborate? They talk to each other about spells and magickal techniques. They share what has worked for them as individuals.

Coven members often work together. They help each other learn and grow. When you work in a coven, it helps when the coven members specialize in different areas. For example, one may focus on herbs. Another specializes in The Tarot. A different member might emphasize potions. (Warning: Always take special care about anything that may be ingested.)

The truth is because I’m dyslexic, I’ve needed to collaborate with others. It’s helped me improve as a writer and grow deeper as a person.

My thoughts about “transform a limit into limitless” include:

Limit: Dyslexia –> Limitless: Writer of 9 books (with editors’ support)

Limit: I cannot read a script aloud –> Limitless: I’ve recorded material and used audio editing. I have 102 podcast episodes (each one is 6 minutes or less) that have inspired nearly 14,000 downloads of the material.

If you asked me 10 years ago if I could imagine writing and doing podcast episodes, I would have said, “Other people can do that. Not me.”

Now, I know that collaboration is a sound path to travel.

  1. Experience true collaboration with the Gods

Where do great ideas come from? They come from within you and from the Gods. The Gods give us the intuition and the knowing.

What was a good idea that popped up in your thoughts? How did you experience this?

Sometimes, we really do receive inspiration from the Gods. I’ve noticed that you will repeatedly receive the idea. It just does not leave you alone.

Does the good idea point you in the direction of doing something positive that will help others?

Earlier in this post, I talked about how the Gods pressed me to write a blog.

I didn’t think it was possible. But I got help. Soon not only did I grow as a person and as a writer, but I also helped others.

This is how the Gods can collaborate with you. They can guide you, so you do things that uplift your life and the lives of others.

You may want to gain clarity by also using divinatory tools like The Tarot. Consider meditation to open a communication channel with the Gods. Have Them guide you. This is how They can help you on your path. Additionally, this is a great way to collaborate with Them.

May these insights support you on your life path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Handle Counter-intentions in Their Spellwork

Have you done spells and found them to fail, or worse, give you the opposite of your intention?

How does this happen? Many of us grow up with authority figures who program us with beliefs that are harmful.

When we do spellwork, we begin with an intention. We want something good for our lives.

However, a subconscious counter-intention can cause havoc to your spellwork.

A counter-intention can be a negative internal push that is against or is opposing your positive conscious intention for your spell.

So, what can we do to save our spells from counter-intentions?

Here are three insights:

  1. Identify and make a list of harmful ideas that authority figures pressed upon you.

Take a journal or piece of paper and write down the harmful ideas you were programmed with as a child.

Here are some examples:

  • We can’t afford that.
  • All rich people are bad.
  • You can’t do that.
  • You’re not good enough at ______.
  • You can’t make a career out of doing ______.

If you have trouble unearthing the harmful ideas, you may want to do a meditation and look for them within. You can use the Tarot to help you along the way as well.

2. Identify your true intentions.

Once you have identified some harmful ideas that may be holding you back, it’s time to look at them and consider something different.

Consider the opposite of a harmful idea.

I have a friend who has a father who thinks every rich person has done something bad to get rich.

What can be an opposite idea to that?

You could think about: “What can I do that is good and which creates value for all involved?”

My friend met Richard Carlson, the author of Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff. My friend said, “Richard Carlson was a man who helped people as a psychotherapist. Then he became prosperous with his series of books. There was no crime in that. He helped people.”

So, my friend cited Richard Carlson’s life experience as evidence that a person can do good things and open the door to financial abundance.

What good ideas can you focus on?

3. Use the Tarot to understand it all

How do you make sense of it all? This is where your magickal tools come in. The Tarot or another divinatory tool can help you clarify what is going on.

For example, The Tarot can help you identify some hidden belief.

Use your Tarot cards or other divinatory tool and ask questions like:

  • What truth am I hiding from?
  • What untruth am I defending?

Additionally, you can identify a hidden positive intention in yourself. You can ask a question like: What can I learn to transform my subconscious counter-intentions and improve my spellwork?

Such information may help you pick a new direction to travel for your life path.

May these insights help you on your journey.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Become Good at Receiving

How good are you at receiving? I’ve learned that when you really want your spells to work, you need to look carefully at your comfort at receiving good in your life.

Do you receive things like compliments well, or do you say something to dismiss them?

Your habitual ways around receiving can make the crucial difference related to a spell working or not.

I’ll now share three insights:

  1. If you are not good at receiving, your spells may not work

Working spells is hard enough, but if you don’t let in the magick, the spell will most likely flop.

By “let in the magick,” I’m talking about being open to receiving gifts from the Gods. For example, if you dismiss compliments, you’re doing something that may feel like snubbing the compliment giver’s efforts.

Be careful to avoid snubbing the gifts the Gods are trying to send to you. This can create not only a broken relationship with the Gods, but your spells may sputter out.

I have personally fallen into a trap of discounting a compliment, on a number of occasions.

Someone would give me a compliment like, “Good work.” I would say, “Oh, anyone could have done that.”

How would you feel if you were the person who gave the compliment?

I’ve learned to simply say, “Thank you.” I say nothing that discounts the gift of the compliment or the kind observation.

The Gods want a good relationship with you and that involves you graciously receiving gifts from Them.

  1. Pay close attention to your blocks related to receiving

Have you faced a problem with feeling “I’m not worthy”? I can relate to this. I learned that staying in a space of low self-esteem can create blocks. These blocks can create problems with your magick.

Think of such blocks as functioning like a barrier or a shield. Blocks can deflect your magick and make it flop. This terrible combination of a block and your magick can even create negative consequences.

Additionally, it’s difficult when a block may exist on the subconscious mind level. Some people grew up in families in which talking about money was a taboo. Or the parents repeatedly said, “We can’t afford that; put it back” to children exploring toys in a retail store. Such incidents can cause a person to feel insecure about money.

Meditation, rituals, and prayers to the Gods can help you get on the path of being more comfortable about money and receiving.

  1. Keep the cycle of giving and receiving flowing along.

Giving back to the Gods is important. How? Lighting a candle or giving offerings to the Gods is a great way to say “thank you” for the gifts you have received through your magick.

You could even dedicate a chant, poem, or an act of kindness that you gave someone—to the Gods.

At one point, I dedicated my work at an animal shelter to the Gods. And, the animals had a good time, too.

You might choose to give to a charity of your choice. Just use your imagination and your intuition.

May these insights support you on your life path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Take Ownership of the Transitions in Their Lives

Have you recently gone through some type of transition that was rough?

I’ve noticed myself and friends going through transitions at this time. Often, it feels like one is a piece of cork buffeted on the ocean.

Then, I realized that, as witches, we can choose to make the meaning of our transition. Transitions happen to everyone. And as witches, we can make these situations more profound.

Sometimes, a transition can cause us to wonder: “What does this all mean?”

Here is a prayer for helping you squeeze the meaning out of a transition—as if it were a metaphorical orange.

A Prayer During a Time of Transition

Magnificent Lord and Gracious lady,
Let the meaning of this [transition] be revealed.
May this transition cause me to be healed.
Breathe in the love and exhale the hate,
Let in the message to invigorate.
Stich by stitch I now make myself whole once more,
Sewing myself together whole to the core.
Growing through this transition through and through,
Finding my true self through this journey, too.
Thank You for all the blessings.
So Mote It Be.

May the above process support you on your life path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Create an Energetic and Spiritual Reserve

“I almost can’t believe it. Every time I hear the news, something else is going wrong. Sometimes, I don’t feel I can’t take anymore,” my friend, Amanda, said.

During our conversation, I realized that many of us are just existing on the edge. There’s an old phrase that many people are just one paycheck away from disaster.

We all need reserves in our everyday and spiritual lives.

 Here I’ll talk about developing your own energetic and spiritual reserve.

  1. Take care of your body

Make sure to get enough rest and eat nutritious foods. Even just drinking a glass of water can help. I had a family member getting ready to do a live online show. He didn’t feel so well. After just one glass of water, he was in much better shape. Now that the fires are subsiding (at this moment: only 26 major wildfires remain) in California, I’m back outside doing my daily walk.

  1. Take care of your spiritual self

Devote some time to meditation. Even a five-minute daily session of meditation is helpful.

You can make up your own phrases to focus on.

Here is an example of phrases to use for focusing:

Powerful Lord and Gracious Lady
Grant me a spiritual reserve
And help me keep it and preserve
Inner peace and energy
I’m not alone, I can see.
So Mote It Be.

  1. Develop new contacts in our spiritual community

Gathering in an online conversation with fellow members of our spiritual community can lift your spirits.

Talking with someone over a Zoom call or a standard phone call can help ease a burden of something that is troubling you.

Devote time, perhaps once a week, to talk with certain friends or family members.

You might create a “buddy system” pattern. I have a family member who talks, on the phone, with a fellow novelist three times a week. They provide each other with real support.

Talking with a friend can help you ease your stress. This support you’re feeling is a reserve of energy.

This eases a sense of feeling alone.

May these insights support your life path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Deal with Fear in Crafting Spells

“I’m afraid about crafting my first spells,” Andrea, a new acquaintance, said to me.

This began a significant conversation.

Sometimes, I look at crafting spells like cooking versus baking.

If you’re cooking and experimenting with a recipe, you can take it easy and try things. Maybe you’ll add a bit of pepper. Or a bit of spice. Things that may not need precise amounts. However, some spell components need to be precise.

I call this the difference between Experimenting Spellwork and Critical Spellwork. If you’re doing a simple spell just to enhance your prosperity, you might be in the area of Experimenting Spellwork.

However, if you’re dealing with something you will consume (like certain herbs), then you’re in the realm of Critical Spellwork. I note that Critical Spellwork is similar to baking because baking has chemical reactions involved (for example, a roux).

Remember some herbs are poisonous. And herbs have chemical compounds that may not be safe. When working with herbs, stay with the ones you know. Be sure to investigate reliable sources as you do research. Remember some herbs may be safe for some individuals but not safe for others. Certainly, be careful about whatever you ingest if you’re pregnant or may become pregnant.

Questions to ask are:

  • Is this poisonous?
  • Can this be dangerous to consume?
  • Will I or someone else have an allergic reaction?

Make certain that you ask these questions if you consider working with advanced spells or possibly some form of hazardous materials.

Here is a Vital Part of Spellwork – the Safety Clauses

In my own spellwork, I use these clauses:

  • For the good of all involved
  • This or better

Safety clauses help keep you (and others) safe from harm. Safety clauses also protect you from the possibility of a spell backfiring on you. Safety clauses also create boundaries that will not be crossed with your spells.

An example:

For a money spell, include something like: “May no one be harmed and for the good of all involved.” (You’re guarding against the situation of a favored relative dying and then leaving money behind.)

May these insights support your life path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater
