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

How Witches Have Access to Ecstatic Experiences with the Goddess

Have you been trudging through your day-to-day life?

Do you sometimes wonder, When do I get to have joyful experiences in my life?

As Wiccans, we have a true gift.

Goddess offers us the opportunities to learn to access ecstatic experiences with Her.

How?

Meditation is one path. Holding a ritual is another.

Here I’ll share a Prayer to recite just before you begin a meditation session.

I was inspired to write this prayer as I was studying this excerpt from The Charge of the Goddess.

“For mine is the ecstasy of the spirit and mine also is joy on earth; for my Law is Love unto all Beings.” – from The Charge of the Goddess, written by Doreen Valiente, in the voice of the Goddess

Prayer for True Connection with Goddess.

Goddess,
Remove any distractions from my path
That separate me from the ecstasy of the spirit.
Give me my share of joy on earth.
Help me know Your Law of Love in my heart.
May I feel Your blessing on me throughout my journeys.
So Mote It Be.

May this process bless your life.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Deal with Having No Choices

“I have no choice about this,” my friend, Steve, said.

I immediately thought, Is that true? Does he have no choices?

Maybe you’ve been in a similar situation when you wanted to offer some ideas to a friend, but you could feel it … the friend just wanted to vent. They were not open to hearing new or different ideas.

The good news is that we can turn to the Gods when we, personally, feel confused or feel that we have no choices.

Here are three helpful insights:

  1. Invite the Gods to reveal your hidden choices.

Say a prayer and ask the Gods, “Please reveal to me some positive choices I have that seem hidden to me now.”

You can also use a divination tool like a pendulum or Tarot Cards. Ask the Gods to guide you while using the tool.

How to Use a Pendulum

You’ll use a chain with a stone attached at the end. Hold the end of the chain and have the stone (crystal, precious metals, etc.) dangle over a sheet of paper with your two choices inscribed.

Loop the chain over your middle finger. Hold still. Declare that if the appropriate choice is “A,” then the stone will rock vertically (flowing toward your abdomen and away). Also, declare if the correct choice is “B,” then the stone will rock horizontally. Ask the Gods to show you the correct answer. Hold still and see what answer you get.

  1. Invite the Gods to strengthen you when it is a tough but valuable choice.

The Gods care about you. They know of the path you need to tread. It may not be the path that is easy, and it may not be the path that you preferred.

However, it’s the path that calls you—if you can hear it. Ask the Gods to strengthen you and to remove distractions so you can hear the call of the path aligned with your destiny.

It’s important to walk your Destiny Path for your own personal growth. We have lessons here during this incarnation.

  1. Invite the Gods to walk with you.

Invite the Gods to support you and walk with you on your True Path. You can do this through prayer, ritual, or simply by talking (in your mind) to the Gods. Consider taking a walk in nature and enjoying such an internal conversation with the Gods. Ask what you need to learn on this journey. Ask Them to clarify your answer. Additionally, you can ask the Gods to move any obstacle out of your way.

May this process bless your life.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

Witches, Transform Your Inner Critic into Your Inner Helper

Does your Inner Critic ride shotgun? Do you wish your Inner Critic would just shut up and take the backseat for a change?

What if that’s not the whole story and not the good story?

Have you thought about what purpose your Inner Critic might serve?
Your Inner Critic is trying to keep you safe.

Let’s say someone has the thought to take a leap over a crevasse. The Inner Critic yells, “Noooooooo!”

Your Inner Critic is there to save you when you want to try stupid stuff.

However, the Inner Critic can assume too much power. You may want to take an appropriate risk—like giving a speech or asking for a promotion.

We, witches, even have new levels in our magickal life to explore.

So, how do we transform the Inner Critic into our Inner Helper?

Three Steps to Transform Your Inner Critic

  • Thank the Inner Critic for trying to protect you.

When you thank your Inner Critic, you get it to quiet down. That’s good because you avoid the Inner Critic renewing its resistance and interference.

  • Take the Inner Critic’s fear and turn it around into a positive action.

Perhaps, your Inner Critic says something limiting like: “You’re no good at learning new things. Do NOT even try to do a new spell.”

You could turn this around into a phrase like: “I’m learning new things. It is okay for me to try a new spell.”

Additionally, you can seek mentors to support you in your new learning.

  • Invite Goddess to Help You

Now, ask the Goddess to help you with your chosen new action. You can say, “Goddess help me do [positive action.]”

For example, you might say, “Goddess help me to learn this new spell.”

May you experience times when your Inner Critic transforms into your Inner Helper.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

Tame Your Inner Critic: A Wiccan Perspective

Ever find that your Inner Critic beats you up emotionally?

Some of us ask, “What’s an Inner Critic?” That’s the part of you that won’t give you a break. Instead of saying, “You made a mistake,” the Inner Critic says, “What the hell is the matter with you?”

The Inner Critic is a voice inside you that kicks you when you’re down.

Here is a Self-Affirmation Chant to help you exert your inner power.

Self-Affirmation Chant

Inner critic, listen up,
You don’t think I make the cut.
Listen now and listen good,
Just stop pushing “should.”
I silence you from ruining my day,
Now my Higher Spirit has the last say.
Confidence and good thoughts surround me,
As I so will, So Mote it Be.

May you guide your Inner Critic to quiet down.
Demote the Inner Critic to just a member of your committee of voices in your thoughts.
Invite the Gods to enhance the power of your Higher Spirit.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater
