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.
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.
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.
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.
