The Wiccan Path of Freedom and Happiness

One of my friends, Glenn, said “Something really bothers me about religion.”

“What?” I asked.

“I just want to grab certain people by the collar and say, ‘Stop terrorizing little kids!’”

“What are you talking about?”

“Hell!”

Wiccans have nothing to do with the notion that there is a Hell where people are said to be sent to burn for eternity (This is a proclamation of certain sects of Christianity).

Imagine. In Wicca, we’re free of the terror that one can sin and be forever condemned. Is torturing a person forever the plan of a loving God?

If you’re not terrified by the thought that you’d burn, you may have more room for love and happiness in your life.

How so?

If you’re not afraid of being punished and worried about being bad, you’re probably going to be a happier person. You’d feel free and have a better relationship with the Gods.

You’re not going to be afraid to talk to Them. You’ll connect more often with the God and Goddess. You will take comfort in having the Gods in your life.

In a conversation with some friends, I listened to how some religions focus a lot on “rules.”

“Why?”

One friend replied, “Because the people are scared. If they follow all the rules, the people think they’ll be okay.”

Wicca talks about how mistakes lead to consequences—but without all that “judgment for eternity” stuff.

Make a mistake. Make amends. Do better. Perhaps, you might continue to make amends in your next incarnation. NO eternal damnation.

Therefore, life (or this incarnation) is a classroom. The God and Goddess are supportive guides and teachers. Wicca is a loving and kind spiritual path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

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

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.

How To Walk the Wiccan Path and Deal with a Family Member’s Discomfort

How To Walk the Wiccan Path and Deal with a Family Members Discomfort  

Do your friends know you’re Wiccan? How about your family?

Do you have to keep your beliefs a secret at your workplace?

I am fairly open about my practicing Wicca.

Unfortunately, I do have a family member who suggests that I keep a low profile when I attend a work-related event with him. He works in an industry that includes people who speak out a lot about their Christianity. So I turn my talisman with a pentacle around when I’m at a work-related event with him.

Many times I have argued that this form of “hiding” impinges on my freedom as a witch.

At one point, we had one of his friends, a born-again Christian visit, and we kept the door to the room with my shrine closed.

All other times, I wear my pentacle jewelry with pride and talk openly about my beliefs.

I observe that, in America, one does business with a significant number of people who profess that they are Christian and that they hold conservative beliefs.

When I’m in a business situation with my family member, I honor his situation. I am NOT dishonoring the Gods by turning my talisman around, and I am honoring my family member’s concerns.

I am still a witch. Now if someone asks me about it, I will tell them the truth. I am a Wiccan High Priestess. I will not cower in the corner, but that hasn’t happened yet during my family member’s work-related events. I still wear my pentacle; I just do it incognito.

As a matter of fact, I always wear my pentacle. It brings me comfort, and I feel it gives me protection.

Those individuals who are Anti-Wiccan appear to be ignorant (definition: lacking knowledge or awareness in general; uneducated in the subject at hand) about Wicca.

It bothers me when a person chooses not to learn, then the situation may become dangerous. When does the price of silence become too much to bear?

At present, we’re at a junction.

First, it is a blessing that many of our predecessors have hacked a path in the wilderness of fear and ignorance that other people have about Wicca. When a significant number of Wiccans openly express the beauty of Wicca, more people in this world start to appreciate who we Wiccans really are.

Fostering this appreciation is one of the reasons that I write this blog.

At this time, I have found my own path. I stand ready to share Wicca with others. And still at my family member’s work-related event, I do not broadcast my beliefs (I keep my talisman turned around).

As I continue to write this blog and my books, I’m encouraged to see other Wiccans continuing to have a positive influence in the world. May we all continue to express the beauty of Wicca.

Now, I invite you to share with us. Have you faced opposition in some form of conservative community? How do you deal with the situation?

Blessings,

Moonwater SilverClaw
