Feeling alone plagues many of us. This relates to an essential question: Who guards you? You guard you, with the God and Goddess.
Spirit Guides can also assist you. (For more about finding your spirit guide, see my post here.) My Spirit Guide is Linda (visible in the image with this post).
The idea of who guards you is a big topic because a significant number of us have, at least subconsciously, overindulged in food to develop a big body as a shield.
Rita, a friend, said, “It was like I was saying, ‘See! I’m no longer a tiny girl that you can abuse!”
Think about it. With a big body, the scared, vulnerable you on the inside might feel safe.
As I write about Goddess Style Weight Loss, I observe the idea that dropping weight can be like dropping our shield. Why would we do that when the world proved to us that there are those who have hurt us—and others who might hurt us still?
In place of the big body, what or who will protect us?
The God, Goddess and Spirit Guides are with you always—24/7.
“But I don’t feel Their presence!” Rita said.
This is understandable. Why? Because we’re often under the assault of “The Monkey Mind.” That’s the part of our thinking that “chatters” with distractions and fears.
That’s the point. We don’t feel the presence of God, Goddess and Spirit Guides because we’re distracted by The Monkey Mind. (For example, I just felt the urge to check email on my smartphone.)
The answer is to step away from the chattering. For example, my husband meditates for three minutes every morning. Just today, he said, “I didn’t feel peace until about 2 minutes and 50 seconds into my meditation. But I did reach the peaceful experience.”
The next step is to identify when, where and how you can feel the presence of God, Goddess and Spirit Guides. We see Their presence every day. From the grass between our toes to the rocky mountains that are Their cathedrals.
We can Cast a Circle and do a ritual which takes us out of our daily, Monkey Mind, routine.
But what about inside of us?
We are even distracted by feelings in our bodies.
There is a solution: Eat in healthy ways.
Eating healthy helps us run our bodies with the fuel they were meant to have. Goddess, through human history, has provided the bounty that sustains us. It’s only in modern times, when people have poisoned ourselves with processed, so-called food.
Realize that with healthy eating choices, our bodies will run better and with that comes a tighter bond in the ever loving arms of the Gods.
In this way we will be closer to Them, and we have a better chance of physically feeling Them within ourselves. It’s easier to connect with God and Goddess during a meditation if your body is not suffering from feeling bloated.
To bring this full circle, we’re been talking about who guards you.
You guard yourself by making healthy choices.
Even better, when you do things to reduce the distractions of the Monkey Mind, you open the door to the presence of God, Goddess and Spirit Guides.
Just like being in Circle, you can have a spiritual experience when you go Goddess Style: Eating from the earth and honoring the beings you consume.
The truth is: Having a big body can hold you back from experiences you really want. (I must say at 35 pounds lighter, it is easier for me to fit into a seat on a jet plane!)
Having a big body apparently was something I needed at one time.
Now, I’m focused on who really guards me—myself, God and Goddess.
Would you like to make the transition to feeling the presence of God, Goddess and Spirit Guides?

As a Wiccan I found this an inspiring read. Written in a way that makes it accessible to everyone irrespective of their current knowledge. – Shona Cathro
I don’t generally write reviews on books I’ve read…but this time i feel lead to. This book spoke volumes to me, as if the author knew exactly where I’m coming from and what I’m struggling with. It’s not often a book can make me cry, but this one did by making me see the many blocks I’ve put up in my life. I knew they were there, but I’ve gotten skilled at pretending they’re not. 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

Ms. SilverClaw has written a book that is really great for the beginner wanting to learn about Wiccan or wants to start practicing the art of Wicca. I found this book wonderful, easy to read, and extremely helpful and informative. It covers everything from what Wicca is, the history of Wicca and how Wicca became misassociated with evil, along with how Wicca can help/save people’s lives. Ms. SilverClaw also discusses practicing Wicca either in a Coven or Solo, and all the things you need in order to have in order to perform your ceremony, and she explains what each item means. She explains how to create spells and gives examples to use, and explains the pitfalls of creating certain types of spells. Ms. SilverClaw has truly created a book that is a cast all net the seems to cover everything that I needed to know to begin practicing Wicca. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is searching for their first book on the topic and wants to start practicing the art of Wicca or is just curious about the topic. This is truly a Must Have book. – Tamra L. Shipman
This is a terrific book! It is like talking to the author over a cup of tea like one of the bloggers says. – Kitri
