Learning and Living The Old Ways: Wiccan Lessons, Rituals, Rites of Passage, |
Author: Rowan ViviAnna
Category: Witchcraft & Wicca Level: All
So “YOU” think being a Witch is cool and Witchcraft is for you… hummm. Guess I got my work cut out for me…
It is easy to say you are a Witch, anyone can do that but to live it on a daily bases is quite another matter all together. If you are going to commit yourself to following the path of the God & Goddess then you must learn that it is not a lifestyle but a way of life. I have run across so many in my lifetime who truly have natural gifts. They are either too busy or do not understand the level of devotion it takes to walk a path as complex as the Craft really is. It is not just wearing a pentacle, casting spells, and saying, “blessed be”. This is not the movies kids.
The Craft is a way of life that is based on reverence for the Earth and all its inhabitants and the ability and responsibility to harness the forces of the Universe.. It is spiritual and magickal, but it is a part of the mundane world in which we all live. A true Witch follows his/her path of the Craft every day, in every act, deed, and thought. This of course, is my definition, my view of a magickal life, but then, I can give you no other. It is a way of thinking and looking at the world through purple colored lens…. My Grannie always said if you choose to walk the path of the Goddess then be prepared to give yourself fully, this is no part time job. As soon as you think it is, she will remind you of the commitment you made to her with a tap to the back of your head....
As I teach my beginning students if you don’t have the time to commit to yourself to walk your path 24/7/365 then maybe you should re-evaluate why you started your search in the first place. You need to be able to set time a side for daily study, meditation, and be ready to open yourself up to find what lies deep within you even if you don’t like what you find, that my friend is the first lesson you must learn. Find out what set you upon this path in the first place what were you searching for that you have not been able to find in the mundane world.
If I can get across anything to you, I do hope it is the fact that you always must be true to yourself and to your Deity’s… no matter what.
Author's Notes: I am 61 year young Mom, Grandma a and practitioner of The Old Ways. I was raised as a Witch-child in the 1950's in my Grannies Coven. I am now raising my Grand-kids with the same Family Traditions.
I feel it is important to remind the New Generation what the Older Generation when through so they could be out of the Broom closet everywhere, including our Military. We still have a few issues but I do feel like it is getting better. Thanks to websites like WitchVox, Pinterest, Facebook, and Youtube.
