Hello readers, friends and family
today I would like to write about thouse hidden virtues and talents of us woman, that are feared to live freely or suppressed by themselves or others. I want to talk about the shaman, pristress, witch and goddess in ourselves. I want to encourage every woman in this world to be and live free her God given gifts as her heart content. And I want to encourage every emancipated, free and loving men to help us with it, specially because you know this virtues are in you too and you believe in equality. (Thank you very much to all our men that support )
I want to write for all tipe of Lifestyles, where woman can be themselves, everything is right. But I want specially point out the Lifestyle of the Witch, because it has the most resistence in our society.
“Everywhere in ancient times woman were shamans. They were always connected with divination and with the movements and currents of the earth, as if they could not be separated.
Woman shamans, witches, priestesses, etc. are frequently portrayed naked and grounded in the phisical body, openly sexual, chanting, singing, dancing to make rain, healing, girthing, playing musical instruments, waving, planting etc.
Old souls, protectors of the earth, defenders of the right, speakers of the truth, guradians of the animals, lovers of the rivers and oceans, worshipers of the moon, followers of the sun, seekers of enlightment, believers in equality, practitioners of magic, protesters for nature, warriors against darkness, fighters against ignorance, and voices for victims.
“Witchcraft… is a spiritual path. You walk it for nourishment of the soul, to commune with the life force of the Universe, and to thereby better know your own life.” –Christopher Penczak
“They tried to make us conform to religion, we clung to our spirituality. The tried to hang us, our spirit remained. They tried to burry us, they didn´t realize that we are seeds. They tried to burn us at the stake and drown us in wells, but they didnt realize that the elements are our friends.
In the end they called us evIl, not realizing that we are Nature and she is Divine.” -DJ Hinton
The pentagram is a five-pointed star with its lines often interlaced and enclosed within a circle.
It is a symbol of protection. The top point of the star represents the true Spirit or the Goddess. The other four points symbolize the elements of creation: Earth, Air, Fire and Water.
The star as a whole, symbolize the spirit bringing the elements into natural harmony.
Quite the opposite of its unfortunate reputation, the pentacle is a symbol of harmony, health and mystic powers. The Pythagoreans adopted it as a sign of health and the marriage of heaven and earth. As a sign of heaven, earth, as well as human body and mind, the pentacle holds great power. So much so, that it was used as a protective emblem among alchemists and magicians alike. Specifically, alchemists would press this symbol on hermetic books to emphasize the knowledge within as being protected and sacred. (Source: What Is Your Sign – Ancient Alchemy Symbols)
EARTH & NATURE BASED SPIRITUALITY
Celtic, Druididm, Gaia, Native American Spirituality, Australian Aborigne, Peganism, Shamanism, Shintoism, Wicca/Witchcraft; Buddhism etc. are under the umbrella of Earth & Nature Based Spirituality.
Everything is connected, God/The Creator, the Universe, the Galaxies, the Planets and Mother Earth with us all Earthlings.
There is not right or wrong. Everything we choose as individuals, as the expression of our inner selves and higher selves is right. As we need white, we need black… as we need inside, we need outside… as we need up, we need down… everything has a natural balance… as we need femenine, we need masculine.
Every expression we choose, if we are Christians, Jewish, Muslems etc. or Pegans (Earth Based Spirituality), is right, in all is God/The Creator meeting our needs and giving us an individual inspiration to express ourselves. But one is for all of us: respecting each other our different ways of expression and co-creation.
We all have Ayurveda (Living a healthy lifestyle according our biology), Astrology (Living according the Sun, Moon, Planets, Equinox), Meditation (Prayer, Spells, Wishes, encounters etc.) and many other things that connects us in some way of expression in our believes.
In all of the believes and religions are people with good intention and also bad intentions. At the End this is what counts, THE INTENTIONS. And to keep a balance in this Universe, we need both. Create and destroy, to build the new. Remember the situation, when someone have had “bad intentions”, that made you stronger or to take a different desicion that brought you to a better life or to your destination. All Creation is good.
There are no rules to choose your inner Goddess, or how to be a witch a shaman or a pristress, you can choose from everything and be your own, from the expression of your clothing, your believing, what you practice, from which source you learn, solitary or in a group and your own Lifestyle. We are not prototypes, we are INDIVIDUALS.
Being a Witch is not a hobby,
it is not a trend or style.
I am not going to grow out of it.
It is a way of life.
It is who I am.
ALWAYS TRUST YOUR INNER GODDESS.
MAGIC IS IN YOUR HEART.
Wishing everybody a wonderful Sunday!
