A Wiccan Walks A New Path

Moonwater’s new book.

Do you ever think about how God and Goddess made everything? You look at a tree and you say, “That works.” You look at a waterfall, and you might say, “Ahhh, beautiful.”

“How about a diet?” my husband asked me.

“No! Humans made diets!” I said.

No wonder, diets don’t work. Why? I’ve noticed that a diet seems to be so much about punishment.

There’s a Myth that you can punish yourself into doing something good. Here’s what I discovered: I try to be good and eat only what is on the diet. And when I fail? I feel guilt that I wasn’t strong enough or good enough. I even went into self-shaming and self-loathing. I’m punishing myself for screwing up.

In meditation, I realized that Goddess doesn’t work that way. Goddess loves us. And that provides a crucial insight.

If diets don’t work, what does work?

Loving yourself works. You love yourself so much that when you choose what you eat and how you exercise, you feel that you’re totally worth it. It could even become easy to lose the weight.

How so?

God and Goddess have given us the bounty of the earth. Good proteins, fruits and vegetables to fuel our bodies to grow and heal, and so much more. The God and Goddess want us to be all that we can be.

December of last year, my doctor warned me that I had to lose weight. My extra weight was aggravating my asthma. More than that, I did not want to succumb to diabetes like my mother.

However, I’d tried diets before and had failed miserably. What to do? Return to the Goddess. This time I’d approach the whole process differently. My journey would be about natural food (letting go, most of the time, of processed food and processed sugar). I’d incorporate ritual, keeping my sense of humor, protecting my personal energy and more.

I choose a different lifestyle – one that honors the God and Goddess and honors myself. I choose the Goddess Style Weight Loss way of living now. And it works.

I have lost 36.8 lbs. so far, and I feel so much better.

What do you do when you have good news? You tell someone! So, I wrote a book to help others.

It’s time to choose. Love or myth – What do you choose?

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

Who Guards You? — A Wiccan Advantage

Moonwater’s Spirit Guide, Linda

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?

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

What about Witches and the Gods?

One reader asked, “Do I need to have Gods to be a traditional witch?”

My first reflex was to reply, “Yes!”

Then I paused and thought about it. What might this person be thinking that leads to this question?

Perhaps, he or she thinks that a witch is simply someone who wields natural energy to create change. (That would be a sorceress.)

Maybe this person thinks that witches merely do spells to heal people and attract prosperity. (Still a sorceress.)

On the other hand, traditional witchcraft is about honoring the Old Gods. So, by definition, the answer is: “Yes. You need to honor the Old Gods to be a traditional witch.”

Then, we look at what tradition attracts you. The Gardnerian tradition has its own particular pantheon of Gods. By the way, I won’t be writing here about which Gods these are. Why? This knowledge is Oath Bound. One needs to be an initiated member in good standing with a Gardnerian coven to eventually learn of these Gods.

Still, one could look into various pantheons.

Here are a couple of examples:

(There are MANY more Gods in the below-referenced pantheons. The below list is just to give you a “taste.”)

Norse Pantheon

  • Odin father of all the Gods
  • Thor son of Odin God of thunder
  • Freya Goddess of love and beauty
  • Freyr God of fertility

Greek Pantheon

  • Hera – Goddess of marriage and intrigue
  • Hercules – God of strength and adventure
  • Hermes – God of travel and commerce
  • Hestia – Goddess of home and family

 Celtic Pantheon

  • The Daghdha – God of weather and crops
  • Arawn – God of life and death
  • Belenus – God of sun, light, and warmth
  • Brigantia – Goddess of rivers and livestock

Egyptian Pantheon

  • Ra-Horakhty – God of the sun, ruler of the gods
  • Anubis – God of judgment and death
  • Bastet – Goddess of cats and vengeance
  • Hathor – Goddess of love, music, and motherhood

In summary, the traditional witch does multiple things: She or he honors the Old Gods and works with magick to create change.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

Wiccans Dropping Excess Weight and Taking the Spiritual Path of Greater Health

seven day candle

Like many souls this new year, I heard my doctor say, “You must lose weight. The health problems are too severe.”

So, in my first week, I ate nothing but veggies and protein. (Okay. I had a little, itty-bitty piece of dark chocolate … each day. Oh, then there was the peanut butter …)  I was hoping to shed the pounds and be healthier. I exercised every day and ate what the doctor told me to.

However, when I went to the scale to my terror I had gained weight!

Ugh! What a horrible feeling!

So, what can I do?!

Here’s a Weight Loss Spell.

What you will need:

  • One seven knob, green candle
  • Banishing oil
  • Candleholder
  • Lighter

Warning: Be sure to do this spell during the waning moon.

Cast the Circle.

Cleanse and consecrate the oil and candle. Set the candle in its holder. Sit and meditate on your losing weight. See the candle as a representation of the excess weight. When you’re ready, light the candle and say three times:

Little knobbed candle of green,
With powers, great and unseen.
I light you in the vast darkness so,
Illuminate health for me to know.
Bad eating habits and lethargy, I rip out
Of my life within and without!
Let this my prayer be answered now! 

I pray that you will, I pray that you must,
For me to lose weight high water or bust!
As you my little green candle melts,
So too does my weight and waistline melt.
So mote it be!

Now sit and meditate on losing weight until the first knob is burned completely. Then put out the candle with a snuffer.

Do the Cakes and Wine Ceremony.

Close the Circle.

The Next Steps

On the subsequent day, simply burn the candle and meditate before it. You’ll complete your session when the second knob has melted away.

Continue this process for the next five days.

*  *  *  *  *  *

For those of us who are letting go of extra weight, may this Spell be helpful to you.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

P.S. I have let go of 7 pounds so far. I am happy about this.
