How Witches Settle from Chaos into Their Meditation Session

“When I’m worried, I don’t want to settle down into a meditation session,” my friend, Jessica, said.

“What’s happening then?” I asked.

“If I settle down, then it would just be me and the worries—in the silence. I’d rather have my iPod on loud and stay busy. I want to be distracted,” she said.

I learned that a number of people have difficulties about settling down with a chaotic mind when they start a meditation session.

I have three insights you can apply to beginning a meditation session.

  1. Focus on your breathing

When you simply focus on your breath coming in and then flowing outwards, you can begin to calm down. The practice of slow, calm breaths can also help in other aspects of your life. The good news is that when you practice slow, calm breaths in meditation sessions, you can bring this conditioning to your stressful times with family or at work.

Anytime your mind wanders, redirect your attention to your gentle breathing in and out. Notice if your breath is fast or shallow. If so, slow down your breath and deepen it. Just concentrating on your breath will help you still your mind.

2. Repeat a phrase or mantra.
Once you have your breathing in a slow, deep, rhythmic pattern, you can then repeat a phrase or a mantra in your mind.

I’ll distinguish here between a helpful mantra and a stress-causing, old-fashioned affirmation*.

Here is an example of a helpful mantra: Goddess supports me in peace. This form of mantra is specific to this present moment.

(*On the other hand, a stress-causing, old-fashioned affirmation can sound like: “I am skinny.” This can cause stress if you feel a big gap between your present situation and your wish to have a different form of body shape.)

3. Begin with a set pattern
You can repeat the mantra while you meditate. Additionally, you can use another form of set pattern.

Here are some examples:

  1. Visualize that you’re walking down the steps of a staircase. This can help you go deeper during your meditation.
  2. Visualize that you’re standing in the middle of Standing Stones. For example, one set of Standing Stones is Stonehenge.
  3. Visualize that you’re sitting in a Sacred Grove of Oak Trees or another sacred spot.

Once you settle on a starting point, you can meet the God and Goddess there. In this way you can converse and devote time with the Gods.

May the above methods support your meditation practice.

Blessed Be,

Witches Break Down Barriers to Get What They Want

“My recent two spells failed,” my friend, Rachel, said.

“It may be happening because of internal barriers you might have,” I replied.

“Barriers like what?” she asked.

This began an important conversation about how you can release yourself from inner barriers to manifesting what you really want.

One barrier relates to the idea “I don’t deserve good things.” Many of us have heard extreme messages from our parents or guardians about how we’re not good enough. Our subconscious mind takes that in. Then it becomes an extra burden: Your spell is competing with resistance found in your subconscious mind.

How Do We Release Barriers in Our Subconscious Mind?

I have developed “The Self-Love Meditation” to help you move beyond self-esteem related blocks.

You can hear the meditation at

Itunes to Episode 1 “The Self-Love Meditation”

OR

Podbean

In this year, 2019, I’m scheduled to guide fellow Wiccans during a presentation in New Zealand (in a few months).

Here I want to emphasize one important point:

  • Meditation can help us with inner blocks that hide deep inside us, keeping us from our goals.

The good news is that we can use meditation to explore our inner being. Then, we can shine a light into the depths of our souls. Often, it truly helps to have an elder/mentor guide you. Having proper guidance during your journey will help you deal with those blocks more effectively.

Consider developing a consistent meditation practice. Why? Proper meditation helps witches find their truth. It’s like the can opener to the mind. When we have access to our subconscious mind, we can make great things happen for ourselves.

The subconscious mind is where a lot of our programming took place. For example, as a child, Susan was severely chastised when she spilled milk. As an adult, to this day, she cannot stand milk. The subconscious programming can really shackle us.

That’s the reason it is vital to use meditation to connect with deep and positive aspects of your spiritual essence. That’s when you become free.

In summary, meditation is a powerful tool that we can use to access our subconscious mind and reshape it to assist us in successfully performing our spells.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

Goddess Is the Source of Your Certainty

 

“Why is it getting worse?” my friend, Stephanie, said.

“I know there’s a lot happening. Anything in particular?” I replied.

“More violence in this country!” Stephanie said. And, this began a significant conversation.

What if Goddess Serves as Your Source of Certainty?

Is it possible to be certain of anything, anymore? Some people complain, “Unbelievable. I could not even imagine that people in leadership positions would be so … disgusting.”

I’ve learned that there is value in seeing ourselves as “spiritual beings having a human experience.”

As many of you know, I believe in the Summerlands, a place of love and peace in between the times we incarnate. We return and incarnate into a new body, and the lessons begin. We use our bodies as a user-interface for our spiritual being to learn lessons on this physical plane.

I realize that it can be tough to see this spiritual level when we’re in the midst of suffering and confusion. It’s as if we’re wearing “human-tinted glasses.” I suggest that we pause and consider looking at our lives from Goddess’s perspective. Goddess knows.

A Source of Comfort

Sometimes, I return to The Charge of the Goddess for inspiration and comfort.

“Let my worship be within the heart that rejoiceth, for behold: all acts of love and pleasure are my rituals. And therefore, let there be beauty and strength, power and compassion, honor and humility, mirth and reverence within you.” – Doreen Valiente (speaking in the voice of the Goddess—from The Charge of the Goddess)

A couple of meanings rise up for me with the above quote.

Notice the phrase “all acts of love and pleasure are my rituals,” and see that the Goddess gives us the answer. We can derive comfort in honoring Her with our compassion, reverence, humility and more. Acts of kindness and beauty honor the Goddess and make us feel good.

A Prayer

Dear Goddess
Release me from my stale, limited beliefs
And give me compassion and mirth in heaps.
Acts of love and Acts of pleasure.
I honor You in this way forever.

May the ideas expressed here comfort you and invite you to listen to your heart. May compassion for others flourish in your heart.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

The Tree of Life Meditation

The Tree of Life Meditation

Meditation Exercise–“The Tree of Life”

Slowly breathe in and out. Breathe in the energy of love and peace (envision this as white energy). Breathe out all stress and negativity (envision this as black smoke). Keep taking deep breaths in and out. Concentrate on the white energy being breathed in and filling up your body with loving energy. Then let go and breathe out the negative energy you see as black smoke. As you do this, release the stresses of the day. Repeat this breathing cycle at least three times until you are comfortable and relaxed.

As your body and mind begin to relax, continue deep breathing and focus on this image:

Envision roots made up of energy sprout from the bottoms of your feet. With each breath, extend the roots farther and farther down toward Mother Earth.

Extend them down through the floor, down past the plumbing of the house, and down, down deep into Mother Earth’s body. Go down to her core, to the center of her heart.

Once there, with each breath in, pull up the energy from Mother Earth. Breathe out the stress, and breathe in the blue-green energy of Mother Earth.

Pull the energy up through your roots, up past the plumbing of the house, past the floor, and into your feet. The energy feels clean and refreshing.

Breathe in deeply. Pull the blue-green energy up into your legs and past your knees. Pull it up, up into your Root Chakra at the base of your spine. Let it fill your body, going up, up into your Sacral Chakra and continuing to your Solar Plexus Chakra. Breathing in deeply, draw the energy up  into your Heart Chakra. Let the energy flow down your arms and into your hands. Feel your body relax as the energy fills it.

Breathing in, draw the energy up into your Throat Chakra.

Concentrate on the blue-green energy filling your body. When you are ready, with another breath in, breathe the energy up into your Third Eye Chakra.

Using your breath, draw the energy up into your Crown Chakra. Feel the energy flow throughout your body.

With another breath in, pull the energy up and out of your head. The energy forms like branches toward the Sky above you. Continue and let the branches flow up to the universe and out into the cosmos.

Draw down the golden energy of the Sky and universe into you. Continue to let the Sky energy intermingle and mix with the Earth energy that is already there. Pull it down through your body and into your arms.

 Continue breathing deeply, mixing and pulling the energies down to your Heart Chakra.

Breathe in again, pulling the energy of the universe down into your Solar Plexus Chakra.

Continue pulling in the energy. Let it flow into you. Pull it into your Root Chakra. Breathing deeply, pull it down your legs and down to your feet.

Feel the energy from both the Earth Mother and the Sky Father that is within you.

Now focus on pulling this mixed energy out from the top of your head once more. But this time let it cascade down all around you like a waterfall until it completely surrounds you.

With a deep breath in, take the energy and push it out in all directions into an egg shape around you. This is the Cosmic Egg of Protection.

Keep breathing and as you do so, push out more and more energy into your egg.

Your egg gets stronger and stronger.

And when you are satisfied with the strength of your egg stop and relax.

In a moment or two, slowly start to pull your branches back within you, pulling them in with each breath.

Let any extra energy dissipate through the roots that you had placed into the Earth from your feet, keeping the egg intact.

Now breathe the roots up, and back into your body just like the branches that were above you. Give yourself over to the total relaxation you now feel.

In a moment or two—and when you are ready—open your eyes.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater
