How Witches Handle Regret

“That’s when I felt dumb and stupid,” my friend, Alicia, said.
“Have you ever been able to let it go…for a time?” I asked.
“Not really. I wish I could,” she said.
This conversation really gripped me. With my depression symptoms, I have endured several times when I was angry with myself. I felt terrible.
I needed to look at positive actions that I could take.
Here are three insights.

  1. Prevent Regret

Do you listen to yourself? Do you pause and think about how you might feel in the future about a present decision?

Sometimes, I pause. I reflect on the situation. I say to myself, “If I don’t do this, I will regret it.” This can get me into action.

I learned about “rocking chair regrets.” Picture that you’re older and in a rocking chair. Will you regret certain things you did not do?

“I’ve had a lot of worries in my life, most of which never happened.” – Mark Twain

I have a friend who made a feature film. Did it make money? No. Does she regret doing the film? No. Why? It was an adventure, and it led to good things for many people in the cast and crew.

“It’s better to look ahead and prepare, than to look back and regret.” – Jackie Joyner-Kersee

So how can you tell what you will regret when making a decision? Think of the rocking chair. How will you feel when you reflect on your life?

Carefully make choices and consider appropriate risks for you to have a good life.

  1. Handle the regret you have.

What is life? Learning and growing. If you have a regret, think to yourself, “What’s the lesson I can learn from this?” Mistakes are for learning. The classic comment is: “Wisdom comes from bad decisions.”

“Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.” – Maya Angelou

That’s part of handling regret. Tell yourself: “When I know better, I do better.”

I have a friend who says, “I don’t go backward.” He is an artist. He completes projects, moves forward, and starts the next project. Some of his projects fail to get the response he’d like. He does not get stuck in revising his old work. He focuses on building a collection of his work.

I talked with a screenwriter who said, “A smart screenwriter has one screenplay put into the marketplace…one screenplay she is finishing…and one screenplay she is starting. She is not afraid about having only one project. She avoids regretting that she did not take action.”

  1. Invite Goddess to help you handle regret.

Goddess and God stand by to support you.

Here is a prayer to support you:

Goddess of the Moon and Lord of the Sun,
Help me let go of regret and use the lessons learned to do better.
Infuse me with the energy of calm in this present moment.
So Mote It Be.

May these insights support your journey. 

Blessed Be,

How Witches Work with Energy

The night shook with the cold wind from the West. Inside the home, people I knew were waiting for me. Because I deal with depression symptoms, I have limited energy. Going to this gathering required me to ground my energy and effectively use a protective, energy shield.

I have three insights for you.

  1. Ground excess or negative energy.

Grounding yourself can change your energy instantaneously. When you do the grounding process, you can flush out bad energy. You can also release excess energy. One process is to envision that you’re taking unsettled energy and pushing it out through your feet into the ground. Such energy dissipates harmlessly. Another step is to envision pulling in energy from the Gods through the crown of your head. You fill your body with such elevating energy.

  1. Before you walk into a gathering, form your personal shield.

In a gathering, people’s energies are emanating and colliding. Often, other people’s energies can be negative, scattered, or disruptive.

When you put up a personal shield, you place a form of protection from unwanted energies. For more information on shielding, see my post here. 

  1. Define your shield properties to allow positive energy to enter.

In a gathering of friends, you likely want to let in certain loving energy. As you form your personal shield, you can direct the process by saying something like: “This shield only allows true and positive love to enter. And, all negative and disruptive energy is kept outside.”

May these insights support your path.

Blessed Be,

How Witches Learn to Escape Being Controlled by Fear

I was stunned. There it was: The sign I had prayed for. The Gods had given me this sign.

A white rabbit statue. To make the correct decision I asked the Gods for a sign of a white rabbit. Standing inside the Filoli Gardens, I had a confirmation of the Gods supporting me.

I have three insights for you.

  1. Ask yourself: “Am I making a decision based on fear?”

Dealing with clinical depression symptoms, I am often impacted by fear, worry, and anxiety. I have learned that I must pause and notice if my first thoughts are fear-based.

Here are three actions for separating yourself from being controlled by fear.

A. Ask the God and Goddess for help.

You can ask through meditation, ritual, or prayer. The Gods are always here to help us.

B. Meditate to help you rise above.

When you meditate, imagine that you rise above the situation. Perhaps, you visualize rising in a helicopter. You step away from your first perception. Now, you can view the situation with fresh eyes.

C. Do a reading with some form of divinatory tool.

Using a divinatory tool can help you experience a new perception. Our plan is to separate from the first fearful thoughts. The divinatory tool can help you create some space and distance from the initial fearful experience of the situation.

  1. Ask yourself: “How do I make space and quiet to hear my true self?”

Consider taking a ritual bath. This form of bath helps you get rid of negative thoughts and feelings that shackle you.

Light some candles. Place appropriate herbs into the heated water.

Rest and soak. Give yourself some needed space and quiet. Observe what new ideas arise.

  1. Combine prayer and asking for a sign.

Ask for a sign from the Gods and invite Them into your decision-making process. They can help you see a situation from a new angle.

The Gods can support you to shake free of limiting perceptions and beliefs.

May these insights support your path.

How Witches Discover the Surprise Lessons from the Gods

Photo by Karolina Grabowska on Pexels.com

“What is a lesson that the universe has hit you with multiple times?” my friend, Sandra, asked me.

“Don’t believe what they say,” I replied. Now, that started a conversation.

At this moment, I invite you to consider what lesson God and Goddess would like you to learn.

They want you to grow and thrive in this incarnation. But some people may not want you to thrive.

We, as witches, need to be careful about whose advice we accept.

I have three insights for you.

  1. Ask yourself: “Does this person really want anything good for me?”

Sometimes, it’s hard to tell when someone is really on your side. I like this old story:

One terribly cold winter, a rabbit crawled through the woods. He collapsed and froze on the ground. A moose came by and dropped some dung on him. The frozen rabbit warmed up. He felt warm and happy. Soon, a bear ambled by, discovered the rabbit, dug him out, and ate him.

Moral of the story…   Not everyone who craps on you is your enemy. Not everyone who gets you out of crap is your friend.

So how can you tell who is a friend and who has something of value to contribute to your life?

First, stay observant. Slow down. Pay attention. Pray to the Gods for insight.

Ask yourself:

  • Does this person want anything good for me?
  • Does this person have experience, knowledge, or insight that is relevant to my life goals?
  • Does this person have the space to push past their own negativity to be kind to me?
  • Is being in a relationship with this person healthy for me?

Carefully consider your own heartfelt answers to these questions.

  1. Ask yourself: “What lesson have I been ducking?”

The Gods want you to grow. It can be painful. But in the end, you bloom into a new you. Stronger and more capable.

So how do you know you are failing to learn a lesson?

  • Does the same situation keep coming up?
  • Do you always avoid certain situations?
  • Do you feel stuck in this chapter of your life?

As a child, I was constantly teased and berated. Can you relate to this?

This bad treatment happened over and over. I didn’t learn my lesson until much later in life.

That lesson was to stand up for myself and to speak up.

To this day, I must employ the lesson of standing up for myself and my family. Recently, I have been standing up to a vendor who has done unfair things. I will not stop until the situation is fairly resolved.

How about you? Have you ducked a life lesson?
How can you improve your own life?

     3. Learn what the God and Goddess want you to know.

Talking to the Gods is important. The Gods want to speak to Their children. Talking to Them is a great way to learn and grow.

You can talk with the Gods through prayer, meditation, and ritual.

The Gods can give you good insights.

Ask Them for illumination and guidance.

May these insights support your path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Cultivate Inner Strength and Power

“That did not go as I expected,” my friend, Sandra, said.

“Was that a good thing?” I asked.

“It was … just different,” she replied.

How are you with expectations? Do some things just not measure up to your expectations? Do you feel disappointed frequently?

Recently, I went to see the film Avatar: The Way of Water. I tried not to expect too much. I just decided to let it be—to be whatever it was. I must say that I remain a huge fan of the original Avatar as directed by James Cameron. So, going to the theater to see the second film in the series was a big thing for me.

I also made sure to see no movie reviews of the new Avatar movie before I entered the theater.

I have three insights for you.

  1. Let expectations flow by like leaves on a stream.

The idea is to let the thoughts that contain expectations flow past you. Why? Certain expectations can cause anxieties to rise. I know this well. Often, I’ll ask the God and Goddess to help me find peace in this moment.

  1. Appreciate what is there.

Witches cultivate inner power by connecting to the beauty and goodness in this present moment. I often find walking in nature to be a truly empowering experience. Why? I appreciate the glorious beauty Goddess has created.

  1. Remember the Goddess’s Wisdom

“For I am the Soul of Nature, who giveth life to the universe.” – The Goddess speaking in The Charge of the Goddess, as written by Doreen Valiente

What do we notice about Nature? Seasons and cycles. Birth and death. Warmth and cold.

The Goddess knows that certain parts of our lives blossom in a cycle like flowers can blossom in nature.

It helps to step back and imagine Goddess’s perspective. She sees how all things fit together.

May these insights support your path.

How Witches Strengthen Themselves During the Stressful Holiday Season

Does Yule time bring up extra stress for you—especially as a witch?

Recently, I was talking with a friend. Concerns about pagans dealing with other people’s pushing about “the holiday season” came up.

These specific topics arose:

  • It feels unfair
  • You get treated like an Outsider
  • Details appropriated—like the Yule tree

I’ve thought about these details over the years. Why? We witches cannot escape the stresses that arrive with “the holiday season.”

I have three insights for you.

  1. Own the blessing of the Yule Tree.

Let’s look at the Yule Tree. Evergreens were seen as proof of everlasting life. Our ancestors saw that evergreen trees were the one source of life that continued to live and stay green throughout the year. Even in the deepest winter. They didn’t die with the rest of the plants during the cold months. They were special.

Our ancestors celebrated this. They and we, modern Pagans, consider the Yule Tree sacred.

This is why our ancestors’ brought evergreens into their homes and decorated them with small gifts to the God and Goddess. Candles were placed on the bows of the trees (Please avoid this due to the fire hazard). This is where Yule trees come from, and yes – Christians have adopted the Yule Tree as their “Christmas tree.”

Still, we, witches, can say to ourselves “Our Yule Tree!”

     2. Realize the stress of meeting with family, and focus on your Chosen Family

An old comment is: “If you think you’re enlightened, just attend a family reunion!”

Do you ever dread going to family reunions?

For Pagans, family reunions can be an extra burden. Many of us, for good reasons, must keep our Pagan path as our own secret.

Many of us fear being outed as a witch/Pagan. We hide our pentacle necklaces and other jewelry to conceal our true selves.

So, what is the solution?

Devote Time with Your Chosen Family

In a few days, I’ll be attending gatherings with friends who are Wiccans. What a relief! Being with like-minded people can really help with the loneliness/alienation/fear that comes with being around non-pagans. Especially this time of year!

Finding a place where you can share common ground with support can be a lifesaver. Really!

     3. Return to the roots of gift-giving

For Pagans, exchanging gifts, at this time, is really about celebration. How?

Think about it. Why do you give gifts in the first place?

The first gifts were exchanged by our ancestors as a means of expressing joy for the Sun God’s return.

Small gifts were hung on the branches of the Yule tree for the God and Goddess. Now, we give gifts to each other, too.

You can think “small and meaningful.” Even giving a printed-out photo, placed in a frame (from a “dollar store”) can be a good gift.

In summary, Yule has always been our time. Smile to yourself and own it.

May these insights support your path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Energize Themselves to Create Solutions and Wonders

Have you ever beat yourself up and put down your own work?

I often put myself down. I say about my artistic work: “Other people can do it better.”

My depression symptoms function like a filter.

My husband’s praise of my artistic projects often cannot get through my depression-symptoms filter.

He told me, “You make beautiful necklaces and pendants.”

“Other people can do it better,” I reply reflexively.

At this moment, I see how this drains my energy.

I have three insights for you.

  1. Focus closely on what you like.

Creating art can be an in-the-moment journey. I suggest you choose an empowering focus. I say, “Focus on what you like.”

I invite you to focus on doing your art.

This is your art. This is your moment.

For example, I’m writing this material now. Later, my editor and I will talk about adjustments to this writing. So, at this instant, I am focused on writing—that is, doing this art form.

Realize that creating something is a process.

To focus on what you like is the opposite of looking outside yourself and saying, “Other people can do it better.”

Think of the Mother Aspect of the Goddess. The Mother creates. The Mother nurtures. She is caring of Her offspring. She creates life and, with the God, creates all around us. This is part of Her true essence.

As you create something, you are an artist. We’re not talking about whether someone outside of you “likes” the art. That’s a different topic and focal point.

You are an artist.

       2. Focus on your true essence.

What is your true essence? Do you default into calling yourself something which refers to people outside of yourself? Do you say daughter/son or mother/father? Do you describe yourself in terms of your job? As many people say, “That’s not what I am. That’s what I do.”

Let’s go back to true essence. One time, my husband was asked by a possible employer: “Who are you?” My husband replied, “Creative energy.” He added details about how he writes text and marketing materials. He mentioned how he edits videos and writes for social media.

The potential employer was surprised by my husband’s comment “creative energy.”

What is the true essence of a witch? Witches like to work with the Elements.

Witches enjoy good relationships with the God and Goddess.

You are not a human being having a spiritual experience. You are a spiritual being having a human experience. – Dr. Wayne Dyer

As a spiritual being, you are creative. You could say, “I am a spirit who is doing art—in this moment.”

For readers who do not do traditional artistic work (painting, writing, and more), it’s still important to realize that you are a creator. You create the moment when you hug someone. You create the moment when you listen to a friend. You create solutions to life’s daily problems. You are creative.

    3. Use a chant to create solutions and wonders.

I often write and use a chant to get to the essence of some aspect of life.

You can use this chant to energize yourself. This process can help you create your art and your life.

The Creation Chant

Thread in needle,
Paint on brush.
I focus on the deed
I’m in no rush.

Now beauty be seen,
By others and me.
Light this flame in me.
So Mote It Be.

May these insights support your path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

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
