How Witches Find the Spiritual Energy to Stay Open to Good Moments

“It’s a tough choice,” my friend, Amanda, said.

“Which one?” I asked.

“Not giving up,” she replied.

I nodded. I’ve learned that life can be so tough that it’s hard to remember the good parts of one’s day.

“Let My worship be within the heart that rejoiceth.” – The Goddess speaking in The Charge of the Goddess, written by Doreen Valiente

A definition of rejoice includes “feel or show great joy or delight. (Oxford Languages)”

The question is: “How can we keep the door open to good moments?”

How can we keep our hearts in the place of rejoicing and being grateful?

I have three insights for you.

  1. Communicate with the Goddess for your needs.

“Whenever ye have need of anything, once in a month, and better it be when the Moon be full, then ye shall assemble in some secret place and adore the spirit of me, who am Queen of all Witcheries.” – The Goddess speaking in The Charge of the Goddess, written by Doreen Valiente

This phrase “whenever ye have need of anything” captures my attention. How often do you ask for what you need?

Some of us hesitate to ask. Why don’t we go to the Goddess and God more often?

See if you relate to this. I often feel tired and lack energy.
I cannot let myself get stuck.

Perhaps, similar to me, you need to set a real intention to connect with the Gods.

  1. Release yourself from tiredness and connect with the Gods.

I have learned that a vague idea does not move me to action.

Here’s a better plan. 

A. Set an intention.

Identify how many times a week you’re going to connect with the Gods

B. Make a schedule.

Set a time of day. Identify how long you will devote to connecting with the Gods. Decide how often you’ll connect with the Gods.

C. Make your action into a routine.

Start with something simple and easy. (I began by saying a prayer every morning before I opened my laptop computer.)

  1. Make a shrine.

Making a shrine to the God and Goddess can create good feelings.

With your shrine, you make offerings and pray to the God and Goddess. These can be happy and good moments in your day.

Be creative in your design. It doesn’t need to be big and flashy. You can see an example in my Mobile Shrine blog post.

Have fun. Your shrine will serve you well. It will be a focal point for your prayers. Place your offerings in your shrine.

Your shrine will help you stay connected to the Gods and give you happy moments while communicating with Them.

Here is a big benefit: Your shrine helps you develop Spiritual Energy to stay open to good moments—during the rest of your day.

May these insights support your path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Strengthen Themselves Through the Sacred Number 3

“Really? The number 3 is sacred? How?” my friend, Devin, asked.

Part of an answer includes the Triple Goddess. The Triple Goddess contains Three Aspects: The Maiden, the Mother, and the Crone. Each has Her advantage.

Here are three insights.

  1. Come up with 3 possible solutions.

I realized that the Sacred Number 3 can also relate to how I make decisions. I seek a “third alternative solution” to simply thinking “yes or no” or “on or off.” That is binary thinking. It is limited.

When you come up with the third alternative solution, you avoid the problem of “black and white thinking” or “yes/no thinking.” A classic example is that teenagers often default to “yes/no thinking.” Alicia, 18, thinks, “Either I put up with Alex’s bad actions or I dump him.” She does not think of the third alternative which can be “I’ll ask Alex if he wants to stay together. It will require us to see a counselor and some changes.”

Sometimes, we get stuck in black-and-white thinking just like Alicia. Instead, we can connect with the Goddess and ask Her for guidance toward a possible third alternative solution.

  1. Realize “3” is Sacred in the 3 Aspects of the Goddess.

As I mentioned, the Goddess has Three Aspects: Maiden, Mother, and Crone.

Imagine that you can experience the Three Aspects in your daily life.

  • Like a Maiden, you can wake up to a new day with curiosity in your heart.
  • Like a Mother, you can create something and express yourself. You can be creative in solving problems and producing at work or school.
  • Like the Crone, you can harvest new lessons and gain knowledge during your day.

In prayer, meditation, or ritual, you can call on the Three Aspects of the Goddess.

For energy to clean the home, you can ask the Maiden for help.

For help with children or family matters, you can call on the Mother.

For sage council, seek the Goddess in her Crone Aspect.

  1. Align yourself with the Sacred Three.

Here is a prayer to align yourself with the Sacred Three.

Maiden, I call upon your youthful vigor to charge me with energy for the day.
Mother, I call upon your creativity, productivity, and bounty so that I may get things done.
Crone, I call upon You for wisdom. Guide me and help me know my true self.
I call all Three to me,

So Mote It Be.

May these insights support your path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Endure the Unendurable

“My mother looked so small and wretched in the hospital bed,” my friend, Susan, said.
Her mother has cancer, and both mother and daughter are enduring this terrible time of life. Her mother endures pain. Susan endures the agony of wanting to relieve her mother’s pain, but she can do nothing. She holds her mother’s hand. She tells stories, and at times, her mother laughs a little bit.

So many times in life, we just hold on during what feels unendurable.

Here are three insights.

  1. Ask for the trouble to stop.

This is the natural response. We pray to the God and Goddess to stop the unendurable pain. And sometimes the answer is “not now.” That is, we must continue to endure the awful pain.

Perhaps, we must learn something. Or by going through a tough time, we’ll have something to teach another person.

God and Goddess know the reasons for what we endure.

  1. Ask for a connection to fleeting good moments.

Do you experience some moments in your day that feel good? For example, my friend, Steven, works in a retail store. Many customers are impatient and rude. Then, like a ray of sunlight, a kind customer says, “Take your time.” Steven told me that this is a “fleeting good moment.”

When you pray, consider asking the God and Goddess to help you to be fully present in the good moments of your life.

Here’s another example of a fleeting good moment. My friend Susan bought a lovely fleece blanket for her mother. Her mother smiles every time she snuggles in this blanket. That’s a good moment.

It’s important that we feel loved and grateful in a fleeting good moment.

  1. Ask for appreciating the whole picture.

Yesterday, I saw a dark cloudy sky. But the sun sent golden beams of light down from behind the dark clouds. At that moment, I asked the Gods for insight into how to endure the day. The beams of light gave me hope. I felt it was a sign that things may be dark now, but that a lighter path waits just ahead.

Here is a prayer.

Goddess,
Guide me to see the whole picture.
To fully immerse in the fleeting good moments.
To feel gratitude flow through my veins for my blessings.
Strengthen me to endure pain and to rise into my new path.
So Mote It Be.

May these insights support your path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Know Differences Between Asking for Help from the Gods versus Asking a Person

“Life is so hard. It seems designed to force us to ask for help,” my friend, Lindsey, said.

That felt like a powerful, truthful idea. I reflected on this. And I talked with a spiritual elder.

Let’s look at the differences between asking the Gods for help—versus asking a person.

Here are some thoughts.

When You Ask a Person:

A) Specific

Be specific so the other person knows exactly what you are asking of them. If you are not specific, you will not get exactly what you want. People need specifics. If you really want a red birthday balloon, be specific. If you don’t, you’ll likely feel let down, and the other person will feel like they failed.

B) Simple

Make your request simple. If the request is simple, the other person will feel like it’s easier to help you.

C) It’s okay for them to say “no”

Make an opening for the other person to say “no.” Why? You need to honor the other person’s freedom of choice.

D) Say, “Thank you”

People like feeling appreciated. Say, “thank you” and you keep in good standing with the person. Also, be specific in how you express “thank you.” Instead of a general, “thanks for being kind” say something like: “Thank you for being so thoughtful and remembering that I get nervous before giving a speech. I really appreciate that you listened to me rehearse two days ago.”

When You Ask the God and Goddess, You Enter a Whole Different Space:

A) Specific – with “or better”

As you ask the Gods for help, try to be specific. Most importantly, express to the Gods that you are open to “this or better.” When you leave it open to “or better,” you may get pleasantly surprised. Why? The God and Goddess know you better than you know yourself. Their perspective is cosmic and expansive. The Gods can surprise you by manifesting something that is truly better.

B) What you request can be hard to accomplish 

Unlike asking a person, you can ask the Gods for things that are hard to accomplish. They are after all the Gods. They do miracles.

C) Build a relationship with a God or Goddess with offerings

Here’s a metaphor: Imagine that you go to some random person and ask them for something big. They don’t know you. They probably would not be inclined to help you.

On the other hand, the Gods want a relationship with you. In a relationship, for example, a friendship, both people offer help and gifts, receive, and express appreciation. That’s how you build a relationship.

Wiccans give offerings to the God and Goddess.

You can even donate your time to support something a particular Goddess cares about. For example, Bastet is depicted as a cross between a cat and a human. Bastet cares about cats. You could donate money, time, or items to a shelter that specializes in cats. This may be a process to create a relationship.

D) Say, “Thank you.”

Expressing “thank you” is a good start. You can also demonstrate appreciation by donating your time, money, or efforts toward a worthy cause that a particular God or Goddess cares about.

May these insights support your path.

Blessed Be,

How Witches Elevate Their Practice – Getting Stronger

Offerings
Offerings: picture by David O.

“How do you stay so cheerful?” a customer asked my friend, Sarah.

“Discipline,” Sarah said.

I reflected on this. Sometimes, elevating our spiritual practice feels hard to do.

I have three insights for you.

  1. Have practices so you can truly focus.

Having a daily practice is important. Repetition helps us go into a trance-like state. 

When you cast a circle in the same manner, the practice becomes part of you. You engrain the motions, words, and feelings. This process helps you enter something I call “The Ritual Zone Mental State.”

  1. Realize that there are times when “it’s just work.”

For many of us, doing a process is “just work,” until, through practice, we can reliably enter The Ritual Zone Mental State.

It takes time to hone your skill when starting something new.

Repetition is just part of the process.

My friend, Sarah, said, “If you have some routines, then you don’t need to push yourself so much.” The idea is: “Make the decision once. Then you don’t need extra energy or willpower.”

Once you pick a specific ritual and specific time, things become automatic. For example, many of us simply brush our teeth at night as an automatic routine.

  1. Ask Goddess for guidance so you can put in routines.

Asking the Goddess for help is important. Sometimes, you need that extra help to get things done.

A Prayer for Routines That Make You Stronger

Lovely Lady of the Moon,
Guide me to create routines to
Deepen my practice.
Let them be consistent and powerful.
May I build myself ever stronger.
So Mote It Be.

May these insights support your path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Remove Limits to Their Happiness

“Oh! Careful with that container,” my friend, Sarah, said.

She carefully took hold of the plastic container and smiled. She said, “Macadamia nuts and chocolate— my happy place!”

Later, I thought about happiness. Some of us have rules that prevent us from being happy in this present moment.

Here are three insights.

  1. Listen to the hidden rules you have about happiness.

Have you heard a friend say, “When I get the new job, I’ll be happy”?

Really? One has a rule that one must have a new job to feel happy?

When you put rules on when you can be happy, it’s like putting up a brick wall between you and happiness.

I have learned that I can be dealing with problems—and still, I can experience happy moments.

This is where we can turn to the Gods.

  1. Ask the Goddess to help you let go of your “requirements” before you’re happy.

Letting go of your requirements can be daunting. We have such strong opinions of when and how we can be happy. We tell ourselves that we will be happy when [fill in the blank].

It seems like we just don’t allow ourselves to be happy—in this present moment.

On the other hand, here is a prayer for the Goddess to guide you to let go of those barriers.

 A Prayer for the Goddess to Help You Remove Barriers

Lovely Lady of the brilliant Moon
Guide me to my happiness real soon.
Help me remove my barriers one by one.
Every one of them till I am done.
May happiness flow through me
For now, and always.
So Mote It Be

3. Realize all that you have been given by the Gods for your life at this present moment.

Because I deal with depression symptoms each day, I struggle with being stuck in a dark place.

With all my blessings, one would think I could just notice how good things are.

I have many good things in my life. I have food. I am not in a war zone. I love my husband, and he loves me. I have a roof over my head. I have friends and family who love me. And there is more.

I have a friend who writes down five things that he’s grateful for each night. He writes in a journal. He says that this helps him “go to sleep happy.”

I realize that it’s time that we count our blessings and acknowledge them. Better yet, we can do a ritual to thank the God and Goddess for Their gifts.

For example, earlier today, I did a candle-lighting ritual to thank Squat, the Parking Goddess. I was grateful for Her support.

May these insights support your path.

How Witches Create Real Closeness in Relationships

Hands of different color

“How are you doing?” I asked my husband.

He stopped. He blinked like he had not thought about his own internal state of being.

Then he spoke with heartfelt thoughts.

I was glad I had really paused and listened.

I have three insights for you.

  1. Realize different perceptions and different sources of comfort.

Years ago, I heard an idea: For comfort one person, Susan, ate chicken soup. She disliked tomato soup. Her partner, George, was quite different. He depended on tomato soup. A real problem is no matter how much tomato soup George prepares for Susan, it will not comfort her.

People are different in their perceptions, needs, and sources of comfort.

George needs to ask Susan what she finds comforting.

How about your relationships? Have you asked a friend how you can support her in the way she prefers?

  1. Engage a prayer to reduce distraction.

I’ve noticed that life is so tough for many of us. We’re dealing with our personal problems. We’re distracted.

A Prayer
Lord and Lady, quiet down my own distraction,
So I can listen to the other person.
Quiet my mind,
So I can hear.

Open my heart,
So my [friend] knows I care and I love them.
So Mote It Be.

  1. Invite the Goddess to elevate your relationship.

I’ve learned that the Goddess truly wants to support us.

“I am the Gracious Goddess, who gives the gift of joy unto the heart.” – The Goddess speaking in The Charge of the Goddess, as written by Doreen Valiente

A Prayer
Gracious Goddess, please elevate my relationship with [friend’s name]
Strengthen us so we can comfort each other
Open our hearts to opportunities to show we care and love each other.
So Mote It Be.

May these insights support your path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Deepen Their Interaction with Magick

“Tell me about your first experiences with magick,” my friend, Alexie, asked.

“I was 7 years old, and I spontaneously set up an altar in the woods near my home,” I replied.

“I saw some birds gather. A feeling of love washed over me. I realize now that I was connecting with the natural energies of the earth and the God and Goddess,” I said.

I have three insights for you.

  • Honor the Craft and the experience of wielding magick

I appreciate the term “magick” because it is a clear distinction that is different from “magic” as connected to “stage magic.” Stage Magicians like David Copperfield, Doug Henning, David Blaine, and Penn & Teller use “stage magic” to conduct illusions or tricks that the audience finds entertaining.

On the other hand, magick is a sacred practice. We, witches, use magick to change our inner and outer worlds. Witches use the natural energies of the Earth, Sun, planets, spirits, deities, and themselves to change those worlds.

With our careful and appropriate practice of magick, we elevate our daily lives.

  • Magick requires practice and patience.

It’s a process to develop your skills in magick and spellcraft. You raise energy and direct it toward a goal. Raising energy may include singing, chanting, and/or dancing. Magick requires you to use precise language and do things in a certain order. It is helpful for you to log your progress. And that includes the need for patience.

  • Remember to hold to appropriate ethics regarding magick.

“Ethics are moral principles that govern a person’s behavior or the conducting of an activity.” – Oxford Languages

The ethics of magick include:

  • Do NOT perform magick on anyone without their permission. (This even includes a healing spell.)
  • Avoid negative practices and intentions related to magick. (The Three Times Law holds that you could get a three-fold backlash upon you for negative energy you place into the universe.)
  • Remember the Wiccan Rede: “An’ ye harm none, do what ye will.”

May these insights support your path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Enhance Safety When Casting a Circle

Casting Circle
Casting a Circle

“That’s when the apartment flooded?” my friend, Yolanda, asked.

“Yes,” I replied, after sharing with her an incident in which a witch forgot to dismiss the Element of Water. This witch cast a Circle in the usual way. But she did not follow through and use the proper steps to dismiss all the Elements that she had summoned.

I have three insights for you.

  1. Operate from a printed script.

Many witches use a script to do their rituals. Casting Circle is no different.

I use a script so that I don’t forget any steps. A script helps you keep track of where you are in your ritual.

Airplane pilots use a checklist. Similarly, you can use a script, and then you can avoid being concerned with remembering each detail.

  1. Walk through the script before you perform it.

Before you start, walk through the ritual noted in your script.

As I have worked with coven-mates, we have done a walkthrough before doing a ritual. This helps everyone have clarity about their roles and required actions. Before you start, sit down with everyone. Go over the steps. Identify who is going to do what action and when they do it.

An extra benefit: When you walk through the ritual (using the script), you can double-check that you have all the steps.

  1. Be sure to dismiss the Elementals and other entities you summoned to your Circle.

As you progress with your walkthrough, be sure you have a section on dismissing any entities, elementals, or spirits you may have called to your Circle. You don’t want any nasty surprises after you take down the Circle.

May these insights support your path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

Goddess Has Your Back – No Matter What

 

“I can’t believe I let it happen again!” my friend, Kelsey, said.

“What?” I asked.

“I trusted Max to show up and support me,” she said.

“And he didn’t.”

“He didn’t call. He just said he was too tired. After the fact.” Then she cursed like a sailor.

About reliability, I think of the Goddess.

Here are three insights.

  1. Goddess is Reliable Beyond a Human Being.

As human beings we have faults. We’re centered on our own desires and needs. Even when we want to pay close attention to loved ones, sometimes we can’t. We may be in real pain. Or we’re distracted.

On the other hand, Goddess is not caught up in the human ego. She focuses on our well-being. She doesn’t have the frailties that even our well-intentioned human friends and family members have.

  1. Goddess Practices Nonjudgment Beyond a Human Being.

Goddess experiences the whole of who and what you are. Even our closest friends don’t have that experience. In fact, some of our finest characteristics may not resonate with certain people. They can’t see it. It’s not about us. Many times, it’s about someone else being lost in their own self-centered vision.

Goddess sees us across all time. More than that, Goddess knows our best intentions. She knows what we were striving for, even when we fail. Goddess knows our potential, and She wants to support us in expressing our full potential.

Beyond human judgment and cynicism, Goddess knows us and loves us.

  1. Goddess Provides Guidance Beyond Human Perceptions.

With human perceptions, there are barriers. Due to their limitations, human perceptions can often lead to incorrect conclusions. Do you recall a time when even someone who cared about you completely misinterpreted your intentions and actions?

Goddess starts with full belief in you. She wants you to live with joy, happiness, and purpose. When you do ritual, meditation, and prayer, you can tap into the love and guidance that Goddess provides.

May these insights support your path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater
