How Witches Deal with the Signs Are Pointing One Way, But You Disagree with Them

Have you sought guidance from the God and Goddess?

Did you receive some signs, but you are uncertain or even in disagreement with where the signs are pointing for you? This can be a common problem.

Here are three insights:

1.  Look for the source of your resistance

The source of your resistance may be fear. Change often requires going into the unknown. Are you afraid you will lose something? Or maybe you’re afraid the new chapter of your life will require you to be more skillful or courageous. Gaining more responsibility may feel scary. If you look at what fear may be present, you can stretch and grow. You might have to take conscious action to increase your skills.

2.  Listen to the Gods Again

Maybe, you’re not really hearing Them, or you’re stuck in your own misinterpretation of the signs.

Go into a meditation session and ask the Gods to help you have a clear understanding. You might ask for a new sign to give you a specific idea of your next step. You could ask, “Dear Gods, please let me know… if you mean ____, show me a white rabbit in the mundane world. Or if you mean _____, show me a red balloon. If you mean something else, show me a purple flower.”

If you get the purple flower, you can begin the process again.

3.  Ask the God and Goddess for clarity and for direction

As some people age, their bodies become rigid. The former gymnast might, as he or she gets older, find it hard to walk ten steps. Flexibility, like walking, is something that you can lose if you don’t use it.

Sometimes, when we’re in so much pain, we fold in on ourselves like a folding chair. This is a good time to ask the God and Goddess for Their help in developing our own clarity and flexibility.

Here is a prayer you can use to help in the process.

Prayer for Clarity

Lord and Lady,
May I have a sign, a beacon of light,
As the sun rises and brings warmth and illumination to the land
May this prayer create illumination in my mind
To shine upon my true path.
So Mote it Be.

Then you can follow up with a meditation session and see what guidance the Gods give you.

May this process bless your journey.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Stay Energetic During the Holiday Rush

Do you feel like you’re running on empty? During the Holiday Rush, we, witches, need to take extra care so we stay balanced.

Here are some helpful insights.

  • Get enough rest

How is your sleep? Do you get enough?

You probably have heard of sleep hygiene, which includes habits and practices that help one get great sleep daily.

Related to sleep hygiene, here are some details you might consider:

  1. Have a cup of chamomile tea. Chamomile is great for helping you relax.
  2. Go to bed at the same time and get up at the same time—every day.
  3. Say a prayer for sleep.

A Prayer for Sleep

Lord and Lady, I ask for peaceful rest,
That my dreams be pleasant and enjoyable.
Let me sleep long and deep for maximum rejuvenation.
So Mote It Be.

  • Get enough exercise

Walking in nature is a wonderful way to get your exercise. I walk every day and talk to my Gods to share how my day is going.

Walking is a gentle form of exercise. It’s especially good for me because I deal with asthma.

Don’t have a lot of time? Walk during your lunchtime or coffee break.

As witches, we know that keeping your body in shape can help you raise energy. Your body will function well and that makes it easier to raise energy.

  • Remember to do ritual

Perhaps, you’ve noticed this: Witches know that doing a ritual can raise our personal energy, but many of us do not feel we have enough energy to do a ritual. This feels like a bad dilemma.

I’ve found a solution: Pick the easiest and simplest ritual … and do it now! This sounds basic, but I’ve learned that it’s important to go into action as soon as you think about doing a ritual (if this fits your life).

Something as simple as a candle-lighting ritual to give thanks can go a long way to replenishing your energy.

My constant readers know that I emphasize meditation. Again, I suggest simple and easy. Consider starting with just a 5-minute session.

I’ll add one more detail about making meditation easier. My husband has finally found a position in which he does not strain his back. He lays flat on his back with his knees up. Now, he avoids dreading a physical strain to accomplish a brief meditation session.

Usually, I avoid suggesting that one recline on one’s back because one may fall asleep. As the old phrase goes: Your mileage may vary.

May these details support your life.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Connect to Goddess’s Secret about Life Lessons

“Another freaking learning experience!” my friend, Sara, said, disappointed. “Why are life lessons so hard? I’m tired. I don’t want any more tough lessons,” she said.

During this conversation, a thought arose in my mind: Goddess wants us to be strong and happy.

“I am the Gracious Goddess, who gives the gift of joy unto the heart.” – Doreen Valiente, writing in the voice of the Goddess in The Charge of the Goddess

The Goddess is gracious, and she wants us to be happy. So, she gives us gifts. What gifts? Strength, joy, love, courage, happiness and more.

Perhaps, we don’t like the wrapping paper around the gifts, which are the life lessons. We must go through the wrapping paper to get to the gift.

The life lessons help us grow; and ultimately, they help us experience happy moments. I say moments because we notice that life is ever-flowing.

Perhaps, like me, you’d like to see the nugget of happiness in the gift. That can be hard when you’re feeling miserable in the moment—in the middle of a life lesson.

Here’s a helpful prayer.

A Prayer

Goddess,
Help me see the light in the darkness
To know that life lessons are the springboard to my happiness,
To know Your gifts of love and strength for me.
May I see that each rung on the ladder of lessons provides
The path to eventually give me peace, strength and above all true happiness.
So Mote It Be

May your life lessons bring you true happiness.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

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 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.
Although the mundane world tears at my sense of worthiness,
Keep me close in Your love.
Guide me to always remember Your
Embracing love for me.
So Mote It Be

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

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 the Goddess Supports You When You Feel No Hope

My husband looked so anxious. He was helping me finish my new online course. I felt unsettled, too. Why? At any moment, PG&E (in California) could shut down the power in my city. 

Sure, they were not going to interrupt service to San Francisco, but the small town I live in was at risk.

The first day, they said that they would shut down power to many locations at 12 midnight. Then 12 noon on the next day, then 8 pm. 

I had some thoughts about hope–and about how hope is connected with feeling that you don’t have any control.

Then I realized that the control we have is not over future events.

I had no control related to what the PG&E company might do. They might shut down the power right in the middle of my uploading my material to the online course website. That could wreck my hard drive.

My control was where I direct my focus … in this present moment.

Here is a prayer:

Gracious Goddess
Hear my prayer
Give me hope
And not despair.
Guide me on my true path’s course
Being gentle with no force.
Gracious Goddess
Hear my prayer.
Give me your guidance
With all Your care.

May this enhance your life.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater
