How Witches Shift Out of a Defensive Posture

“I’m tired of people saying, ‘You’re too defensive,’” Ally, a friend, said.

She felt beat up by people at work. Ally also felt oppressed by the cruel comments and actions of certain people who are against witches.

“Of course, I’m defensive,” Ally said.

This echoed in my thoughts.

Here are three insights.

  1. Shift from “Defensive” to “Quiet Knowing”

Have you noticed that when you’re defensive, it seems that some negativity is attracted to you?

As witches, we hear a lot of negative things about our spirituality. It’s only natural that one may become defensive about our beliefs.

It helps to shift to “Quiet Knowing.” Start with your own heart. Know your own truth first.

Instead of arguing about something defensively, begin with your own heart. Have a quiet knowing and a quiet confidence.

From your quiet center, assess if the other person has any space to make a shift in their perceptions. You may discover that this is not a  “teaching moment” (a moment when the other person wants to learn).

Many times, in your Quiet Knowing, you realize it is time to let go of your desire to change the other person. You let the moment flow by like a leaf on a stream.

When the other person is not present to listen, let it go. You will be much happier and most of the negativity will flow right past you.

We, witches, remember to use a shield for negative energy. (For more about developing your shield click HERE)

Sometimes, you discover in your Quiet Knowing that it is important for you to speak up. My point is: Start from your Quiet Knowing and avoid staying in your ego. Your ego (which is made of fear) can get you into useless arguments.

From Quiet Knowing, you’ll direct your own steps on your better path.

  1. Let Go of Anger.

Have you heard someone bash your spiritual path as a witch? We know there are lies out there that cause pain. Have you felt angry about this?

Anger feeds pain. Painful thoughts and feelings.

Worse: Being defensive creates more negativity.

But what if they’re truly wrong? Pause. Are you dealing with someone who has any intention of learning?

If not, it helps to let it go. If it isn’t a teaching moment in which you could help them understand, let go of your anger. Just look at them as another misguided human being. Then, move on to better energy.

We, witches, do better in life when we avoid “walking around with a chip on your shoulder.”

Instead, go to your quiet center.

  1. Realize that the Goddess Knows Your Real Worth.

The God and Goddess know your true heart. They see you for you. They do not compare you with someone across the street.

You are so important to the Gods. As you learn every lesson, the Gods’ happiness grows.

Some days, it may feel like no one is listening. But The Gods are with you.

They do all They can to help you. If your life isn’t perfect, that does not mean that the Gods have abandoned you. They are by your side always.

Here is an example. Some years ago, I was in a car accident. It was bad enough. But it could have been worse. I feel that the Gods protected me from a worse outcome. Sure, I wish the car accident never happened. However, the car accident and other related details gave me a true learning experience.

When bad things happen, just remember, it could have been much worse if you didn’t have the Gods on your side.

When some people give you trouble and they try to belittle you, come back to the Gods. It may feel automatic or natural to become defensive. However, there is a better path. The Path of the Gods. The Gods put Their divinity in you. Ultimately, that divinity in you is strong and connected. On the essence level, your divinity cannot be “insulted” by some misguided human’s words.

Through prayer, ritual, and meditation, you have a direct experience of the Gods and your divinity.

Once again, realize that the Goddess knows your real worth.

May these insights support your path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Follow the Highest Advice from the Goddess

“My highest ideal would be to get more sleep,” my friend, Kiley, said.

We laughed about this. Still, I know she was using humor connected to a powerful quote…

“Keep pure your highest ideal; strive ever toward it; let naught stop you or turn you aside.” – Doreen Valiente, writing in the voice of the Goddess

I have three insights for you.

  1. Become aware of “your highest ideal.”

Do you know what your highest ideal is? What do you strive for? Is it to serve your community? Or is it simply about “Can I just be awake and on time for work on Mondays?”

Sometimes, it’s not obvious. We can struggle to find our meaning related to excellence. Your highest ideal is connected to excellence.

In another spiritual path, it is said that what is inside you can save you or destroy you. What I get from this is: If we don’t use our gifts, we might fall apart inside. That’s the idea of “destroy you.” You need to nurture your gifts and yourself.

What are your gifts?

  1. Take steps each week to support “your highest ideal.”

What does it mean to “keep pure your highest ideal?”

Imagine all the resistance you face when you simply want to be yourself and fulfill your life’s purpose as a witch. People just don’t understand our spiritual path.

As witches, we have a “highest ideal” for each one of us. It’s unique for each person. It is the one thing we are supposed to learn. We are meant to grow. You have a gift to share. By being your true self, you also help others on their paths. So how do you do this? With the Gods’ help.

Taking steps each week to support your highest ideal is about…

  • Identify your highest ideal.
  • Strengthen yourself with ritual, nutrition, sleep, and exercise.
  • Do actions that support your highest ideal.

For example, I write each week and create a podcast episode. These are steps that help me express my highest ideal of service to my readers and listeners.  

  1. Include the Gods in your journey for your highest ideal.

Completing your highest ideal can be quite a task. This is the reason I like to ask the God and Goddess for support. You can meditate and ask the Gods for Their help. You can say a prayer like this:

O Lovely Lady and Lord of the Fields,
May you guide me through my intuition.
Speak the sacred silent words of your wisdom into my mind.
Let me flow easily on my path like a rushing river to the sea.
Give me your strength O Lord to accomplish my highest ideal without hindrance.
Give me your wisdom O Lady to accomplish my highest ideal with grace.
May my path be free from useless difficulties.
As I so Will, So Mote It Be.

May these insights support your path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Use a “Spiritual First Aid Kit”

“I couldn’t believe it. No fully stocked first aid kit. They did have some isopropyl alcohol. I said to myself, ‘This is going to hurt.’ So, I poured the alcohol on my cut hand. Damn, it did hurt. That unstocked first aid kit had no Neosporin to avoid infection,” my friend, Abigail, said. She was complaining about her new workplace.

It’s important to have a properly stocked medical first aid kit. What about a spiritual first aid kit? Do you have one? Here are three insights…

  1. Create a travel kit—your Spiritual First Aid Kit.

You can put the elements of your Spiritual First Aid Kit into a small box or container for traveling. You can include healing crystals, an electric tea light candle, and a Tarot Deck (or another divinatory device). Perhaps, include a packet of your favorite tea, a small altar cloth, and an offering bowl.

  1. Carry supportive spiritual reading.

Carry words of wisdom in spiritual texts. You can use your favorite author’s books or poems.

  • Goddess Has Your Back by Moonwater SilverClaw
  • A Witches’ Bible: The Complete Witches’ Handbook Paperback–Illustrated by Stewart Farrar, Janet Farrar
  • A digital copy of your BOS (Book Of Shadows)

Include what you find nourishing for your soul.

  1. Carry a “Spiritual First Aid Prayer”

Perhaps, you’ll write your own prayer. That experience can be both soothing and inspiring.

You can use this spiritual prayer.

Spiritual First Aid Prayer

Gracious Lady and Glorious Lord,
Heal me and hold me for I am injured.
Help me shift my thoughts and energy.
Give me your energy to heal my mind and body.
You are my Source.
Sustain me in this difficult time.
Wrap me in your protection and healing light.
I deeply thank You.
So mote it be.

May these insights support your path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Protect Their Divine Essence

“Sometimes, people are too agreeable,” I said to my friend, Frieda.

“I agree,” she said.

We laughed about her response.

This conversation reminded me of the comment that unhealthy relationships are run by the least conscious partner.

“A healthy relationship will never require you to sacrifice your friends, your dreams, or your dignity.” – Mandy Hale

  1. Realize that the God and Goddess are inside of you.

Recently, I said to a friend that Wicca gave me the strength to leave a bad marriage. My friend asked, “How?”

“Because the God and Goddess are inside of me. And I shouldn’t be treated badly,” I replied.

“There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh.” – Jose N. Harris

  1. Stand for yourself.

In recent months, I’ve been helping my elderly parents a lot. I’m their private Uber. There are times when I say, “I will help you. And I also need to go home and make dinner…”

I’ve learned to be assertive when appropriate. I call it “stand for yourself.” It is not aggressive—as in stepping on another. Instead, I stand for my values.

“Everybody deals with situations differently. Some walk away and disregard, while others throw their toys out of the pram.” ― Charmaine J Forde

  1. Ask the Goddess for clarity in who you are.

Without clarity about who you truly are, it’s hard to stand up for yourself. Are you okay because people approve of you? How about when they do not approve?

This is where nice boundaries come in.

Here is a prayer to help you hold onto your boundaries.

Gracious Lady,
Guide me to set appropriate boundaries.
Let me stand for myself.
Let me celebrate the divinity You have placed in me.
So mote it be.

May these insights support your path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Can Find the Right Life Partner

“I’m ready to give up,” Kerri said. “You have no idea how many awful dates I’ve been on.”

I had a pretty good guess because I heard my friend tell me about the bad ones.

I realize that it can be tough to find the right life partner. I endured going through a divorce.

Over the years, I’ve learned to be quite specific about building a good relationship. My sweetheart and I are together for nearly 22 years.

I have three insights for you.

  1. Get clearer on what’s necessary to build a life together.

About eight years ago my sweetheart had a conversation with a friend. My sweetheart shared this idea: “In a life partner look for two things: Someone who is kind and flexible.”

What do you want in a relationship?

Here is an exercise you can do.

On a sheet of paper, create two columns by drawing a line in the middle.  

On the left, write the heading of Desired. On the right, write Undesired.

Now write two lists.

For example…

Desired                               Undesired

Funny                                  Mean

Flexible                               Rigid

Kind                                    Frustrates easily

Respectful         

Attractive

I have a question: “Is this a grape or a watermelon?” When I compare the items on the two lists, I choose which label per item.  The Grape and Watermelon Scale is about the importance of one thing over another. The watermelon is big and important. The grape is of little importance.

For example…

Desired                               Undesired

Funny – g                            Mean – w

Flexible – w                        Rigid – w

Kind – w                             Frustrates easily – w

Respectful – w  

Attractive – g

Now you can see which items on the list are most important to you.

  1. Embody What You Hope to Find in Your Life Partner.

When looking for a life partner, it is good to embody the traits you are looking for. Why? It’s because “like attracts like.” Kind people attract each other. Funny people find each other enjoyable … and so on. I realize that opposites can attract. Still, I suggest embodying your values. 

  1. Invite the Goddess and God to Shine on Your Path for Lifelong Love.

You can ask the Goddess and the God to help you find true love.

Finding the Right Life Partner Prayer

Gods give me Your grace and Your passions,
Lend me Your strength and Your focus.
Light my path so my journey be an easy one
That I may find a life partner who is my true fit.
Like a hand to a glove, like a magnet to iron 
May I find my true life partner.
And let us rejoice and be joined in Your names.
So as I will so mote it be!

 May these insights support your path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Attract Good People into Their Life

“Since I moved out of the state I grew up in, I’ve felt … well … lonely,” a friend, Norma, said.

“I hear you,” I replied. “It can be hard to connect with people who are on the same wavelength.”

“Work doesn’t help me. I don’t really connect with those people there.”

I reflected on this and talked with a spiritual elder.

A number of things are involved in attracting good people. For one thing, we need to take care of ourselves, so we have good energy, and we show that we are welcoming.

Here is a prayer to help with that.

Find Friends Prayer

Lovely Lady and Glorious Lord,

Let me be a magnet to meet the right new people.

May I radiate good energy all around me.

I will find new friends easily now.

New friends will be drawn to me like moths to my light.

May joy and lightheartedness be my path,

With people of like mind and heart.

So mote it be.

 

May these insights support your path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Use a Magickal Spell to Learn for Work or School

“So much to learn and so many tests for my new job,” my friend, Ellen, said.

“Sounds like a lot of pressure,” I replied.

“How do we use an appropriate magickal spell in a situation like this?” she asked.

I looked into the process.

Here’s the Spell for Learning a New Subject for Work or School

This is a simple candle-lighting ritual that you can do on a waxing or full moon.

 What you will need:

  • 1 Yellow Candle
  • Drawing oil (you can use extra virgin olive oil)
  • Your study supplies (books, notes, pen, or pencils)
  • An altar to set them on (a simple table will do)
  • Jasmine incense
  • Candleholder
  • Incense burner

Set your study supplies on the altar/table.

Cast Your Circle.

Cleanse and consecrate all your items by doing the following…

Bless the Incense

Hold your incense in your power hand, which is your dominant hand.

Say:

I bless this incense so that it is pure and clean, that it has the power to cleanse all that passes through its holy smoke.

Light your incense and say:

So mote it be.

Bless the Salt

Hold the salt in your power hand and say:

I bless this salt so that it is pure and clean. So mote it be!

Take three pinches of salt and sprinkle this amount in the spring water. Mix the salt and water with your index finger and say:

I bless this holy water so that it is able to cleanse all that it touches. So mote it be!

Asperge (sprinkle with the holy water) the candle with the holy water and say:

I cleanse you of all negativity.

Next, waft the smoke of the blessed incense around your candle and say:

I bless you for the good of all.

You have now cleansed and consecrated your candle.

Using the drawing oil, rub from the top of the candle to the base of it.

Put the candle in its holder. Place it in front of you. Meditate on what your subject is and then light the candle and say:

I ask you, Element of Air, that you be with me while I study.

May the material I need to know be blended into my mind, into my thoughts.

And be known to me during recall.

Light the candle and then take your study material and focus and study till the candle burns itself out … and longer if needed.

After your study session, do the Cakes and Wine ceremony.

Close Your Circle.


May this process support your path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Invoke a Spell for Healing

“It’s not fair. This daily pain is draining my energy. And with all this pressure, I need more energy—not less!” my friend, Andrea, said.

“I hear you. Pain can be truly draining,” I said.

Later in a conversation with one of my spiritual elders, I realized that healing and pain have several layers.

  1. Hear the message of the pain

If your pain could talk with you, what would it say? What might it teach you?

Sometimes, pain shows up and says, “Slow down” or “Pay attention.” Or “Now is not the time.”

Often, pain carries a message for us to pay attention to something specific. Consider meditating and “asking the pain” what you need to know. It could be as simple as “Stop lifting heavy boxes.” It could be saying, “Your current job isn’t good for you.”

Pay attention to the intuitive thoughts and feelings you encounter.

  1. Make space to adjust your daily routine to accommodate your pain.

When I am suffering from pain, I know I need more sleep. It’s time for me to pay attention to how much and what I eat.

Most of all, I need to slow down.

I invite you to realize that it’s okay to take time for yourself. We all need it.

How can you devote time to taking good care of yourself?

  1. Invite healing and the Goddess’ support.

Another important step is to invite the Goddess in for healing and support. The God and Goddess are always here for you. They desire to be part of your life. They want to support you to manifest your best self.

The God and Goddess stand by us all our lives. Even through the tough parts. Sometimes, the tough passages of life are necessary for us to learn certain insights.

Here is a candle spell for healing.

A Candle Healing Spell

Be sure to do this Candle Lighting Ritual on a waxing moon.

What you will need.

  • Your altar
  • A fireproof surface (perhaps, a plate) on top of your altar
  • Your tools (candles, pentagram, taper, athame, etc.)
  • Your written script of “words of power” (perhaps, a small prayer or rhyme talking about how you are now healed)
  • A script to cast your circle
  • One blue candle
  • Candleholder
  • Dressing oil (you can use plain olive oil if you do not have any)
  • Cakes and wine or juice for the ritual
  • A fireproof container
  • a photo of yourself

To cast the Candle Spell:

1) Cast your circle.

2) Flip your photo over to the blank side. Asperge (sprinkle with holy water) lightly on the back of the photo. Be careful with the photo so the image is not ruined.

Then cense the photo, that is, waft incense smoke around it.

3) Asperge the blue candle, and cense it.

4) Dress your candle

Dressing the candle is the process of putting your desire into the candle. Envision your desire for healing. Rub anointing oil (olive oil will suffice) on the candle. Spread the oil from the top of the candle to the bottom.

5) State the purpose then charge the candle.

You state the purpose of using the candle.

Lord and Lady, guide healing energy to me.

Send healing energy into the candle by holding it in your hands and drawing energy up through the earth, through you, and into the candle. The process of drawing energy up consists of visualizing energy (you might imagine energy strands) rising from the earth into your feet and so on.

6) Place your photo on the pentagram on your altar.

7) Place the candle in its holder on the photo. Use the taper to light the candle from the working candle.

8) Look at the flame of the candle while concentrating on your desire to heal yourself. Take your time with this step. This is a great moment to chant any words of power (if you have written some). Remember, these words of power could be a small prayer or rhyme talking about how you are now healed.

9) Keep focusing the energy into the flame of the candle and the photo under it. Focusing energy means that you continue concentrating on the flame. You focus your thoughts on the intention that you are healing.

10) Allow the candle to burn down completely. Warning: Be sure to place the burning candle in a fire-safe container (or, perhaps, in a cast-iron bathtub or sink). Make sure you do not burn the photo! Avoid leaving the burning candle unattended.

11) After the spell is finished, do the Cakes and Wine (or juice) ritual.

12) Close your circle.

May these insights support your path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Rise from Ashes to New Heights

Judgment from the Robin Wood Tarot

“It’s been a one-two punch. First the breakup and now the layoff. I’m hit bad,” Jinny, a friend, said.

It’s hard to carry on when life hits us with multiple blows. At certain times, I turn to the Tarot. I like to think of the Phoenix when I get a certain Tarot card called “Judgment.”

I realize that “Judgment” may sound harsh. Fortunately, when I view that card, I think about transformation.

Soon after talking with Jinny, I had a conversation with a spiritual elder. This elder shared an idea that people tend to take a journey beginning from powerless to empowered … and then with careful attention … to enlightened.

Here are three insights.

  1. See if you’re being called to rise from “empowered” to “enlightened.”

How are things going for you? Do you feel pushed around? Did something happen that knocked you down?

Or perhaps, things are going better. You’ve developed new skills, and you are empowered. You may feel that you have acted like a Phoenix who rose from the ashes.

I’ve noticed that life is a series of chapters. Surprisingly, it can feel heavy to be “empowered.” You may feel that you’re weighed down by all of the responsibilities that require your efforts, skills, and empowerment.

Fortunately, you can make a transition to something that gives you some freedom. You can transition to enlightened.

  1. Tune into the “lighten” part of enlightened.

What is enlightened? Part of it is to reach beyond your “small self,” which some people call “the ego.”

You have a Spiritual Self that is one with the Gods.

That’s how you get to “enlightened.” Your divine self and the Gods are bigger, stronger, and wiser than your ego.

How do you access your Spiritual Self? Through meditation sessions, rituals, and prayers.

So, talk with the Gods. They know your burdens and your struggles to be empowered.

  1. Invite the Goddess to help you lighten up your journey.

Here is a prayer so you can invite the Goddess to lighten your load.

Prayer for Lightening the Load

Goddess of the Stars
Lighten up my scars
Let me be unburdened now,
Gracious Goddess show me how.
Sun and moon lighten my journey,
Release my load in a hurry.
So Mote It Be.

May these insights support your journey.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Handle the Temptation to Send Out Punishing Magick

“Oh, that country’s leader is doing awful things. That person should be punished,” my friend, Allen, said.

“Whoa. Be careful,” I said to him.

The Three Times Law holds that whatever energy you send out comes back upon you multiplied. One of my spiritual elders said, “Send out positive energy, and you get more positive energy. That’s a good idea.”

Here are three insights:

  1. Realize that a human being does not know all the circumstances.

Since we are mortal, our perception is limited. We do not get to see the entire picture. Some circumstances may exist that we do not see. It’s understandable to hear of some negative action and to get angry about it. Still, it often helps to patiently gather more information about a situation. Sometimes, you hear someone say, “Oh, I didn’t know that. I probably should not have yelled at that person in that situation.”

  1. Pick an ultimate intention of benefiting the recipient.

My spiritual elders emphasize that magick is a tool for helping us grow and to get positive things we desire and need. It’s useful to step away from the idea of punishing any other person.

  1. Turn to the God and Goddess for clarity and to shift out of dark patterns.

I’ve learned that when I get upset about world events, I do better when I turn to the Goddess for peace.

Here is a prayer:

Lovely Lady of the Moon,
Hear my distress and heal me soon.
Show me my part to take action.
Let me not be lost in distraction.  
Guide me to live in love and expansion.
So Mote It Be.

May these insights support your path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater
