How Witches Connect with the Feeling of Wonder and Awe

“Oh, I don’t want to turn into my mother,” my friend, Anna, said.

“Anything in particular?” I asked.

“She’s so bitter. I even think she’s bored,” Anna replied.

During our conversation, I found myself thinking about a central choice we can make: fall into bitterness or stay open to new possibilities in life.

Here are three helpful insights:

  1. Looking at nature brings you in connection with the Gods

When I feel down and even feel a little bitter about life, I look to nature to reconnect with the Gods. When I look at a tree, I don’t just see a tree. I see a fellow being, traveling on this plane of existence.

It’s like a big neon sign saying that the Gods are here. They embrace me in feeling awe.

Think about it. Look at a leaf on a tree. It has a vascular system where nutrients flow into the tree. Each cell is working in harmony with the others, just like cells function in our own bodies. It is the blueprint of life; it is the blueprint of the Gods.

The tree is of the Gods. You and I are of the Gods.

  1. Listening to Music opens moments of connection

Take a moment to recall your favorite song or tune. Perhaps, this music fills you with energy or it’s just so beautiful that it takes you to a fragile moment.

We notice that music can invoke feelings of wonder, joy, sorrow, awe and more. When I listen to my favorite artists, they create a whole palette of feelings to paint my soul with. Such tones inspire an orgasmic plethora of emotions. With music, you can flow with the ecstasy of the God and Goddess.

  1. Opening the Door to Your Intuitive Flow

As an artist, I find that flow, is the Gods expressing joy through me. That sacred connection is the God and Goddess expressing Their life force through me.

Even if you do not call yourself an artist, you are creating every day. You create a flow of activities. You find some way to fit in people you care about while you fulfill the obligations you have. You create and participate in life.

You even create the situations that bring you some good feelings—perhaps, pulling together a good mix of friends for an enjoyable meal. Notice that when you make space for your intuitive flow, the Gods guide you with gentle nudges.

May these ideas open new pathways for you.

Blessed Be,

How Witches Find the Gods Within

On a camping trip with friends, I had a surprising, spiritual experience. One afternoon, I told my friends that I was going to take about an hour to have quiet time by myself. I walked about fifty yards away from our campsite. Alone, I heard a gentle rustle of trees in a gentle breeze. As I sat in a beautiful grove of redwood trees, I decided to talk to higher power (I was not Wiccan yet.) So, I quieted myself down, breathed in the mossy fragrance in the nice cool air, and put out my intention. Then … I felt this Presence. In my mind, I could sense the presence of The Horned Lord.

I wasn’t expecting this at all. I wasn’t afraid. All I felt was compassion and love.

Are you intrigued about having a direct experience of the Deity?

Here are three key practices to help you approach and achieve this connection.

  1. Meditation

Meditation can bring us down deep to our inner world. We can explore the workings of our subconscious mind. Through that door, we can meet the God and the Goddess. In Doreen Valiente’s Charge of the Goddess, she writes in the voice of the Goddess and says,

And thou who thinkest to seek for me, know thy seeking and yearning shall avail thee not, unless thou know this mystery: that if that which thou seekest thou findest not within thee, thou wilt never find it without thee.

In this excerpt of The Charge, we find a key insight: We find the Goddess and the God within ourselves. And the tool witches use to go within is meditation.

  1. Diet

Having a healthy body is also important to help find the Gods within ourselves. Eating from and of the Earth is the healthiest way to do this. I have written on this with my book, Goddess Style Weight Loss   I also offer a modest priced (during Udemy’s discount hours) online course Goddess Style Weight Loss at Udemy.com.

When you eat in a mindful way and do the rituals I share in my online course, you enhance your personal energy. This is a great way to facilitate how you connect closely with the Gods.

  1. Exercise

Did you know that a fit body helps one meditate? How? Sometimes, we get distracted and forget that having a healthy circulation system assists in brain health.

Wiccans know that having a fit body can create a lot more energy than the feeble attempts with an ill body. Our body is a temple to the God and the Goddess. Having it in good running order honors Them. And eating healthy food and getting appropriate exercise is part of having a fit body.

I’m using the words fit body with care. Wiccans know that having a model’s body (significantly thin with ribs showing) does not equate to health.

Our body is our vehicle. We keep it tuned up for our travels to the Gods.

May these insights be helpful for your journey.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater
