13 Goals of a Witch

Posted by ☯ Orabelle Noreen ♆ on May 13, 2013 at 1:55 PM Comments comments (0)

The Thirteen Goals of a Witch:

1. Know yourself

When you truly are in tune with your inner self, that will reflect to others. You'll be trusted, confident and sure of your path.

 

2. Know your Craft

Only through your understanding how to use the Craft for helping others and yourself, will you build your relationship with the God and Goddess, Lord and Lady. Respect the rights of others, and "ye do no harm, do what ye will."

 

3. Learn

The more you learn about Wicca, the Craft and becoming a witch, the more you'll understand that you know nothing. There is a vast amount of knowledge available for any who seek it.

 

4. Apply knowledge with wisdom.

Though you know how to create and maintain a binding spell, does not mean you have the wisdom to administer the spell. Wisdom takes years of working spells, magick and communing with other witches to fairly and justly administer magick to those in need. Learn all the Craft you can, then learn to practice those skills wisely and with love.

 

5. Achieve Balance.

You will have other interests that seem to pull you away from the Craft or Wicca. You shouldn't feel obligated to stay within the boundaries of what you believe a witch or Wiccan should be every day. Feel free to express yourself with balance. Join a group to clean up the beaches to keep gaia clean and beautiful. Volunteer at a hospital to assist the elderly. Balance in your life will make you a better person and a better witch.

 

6. Keep your words in good order

"Speak little, listen much", "Think before you speak" are good goals for a learning witch. The elders have much to say and you should learn to listen as you grow in the Craft.

 

7. Keep your thoughts in good order.

There is no revenge, or evil intent in the Craft. When you're feeling overwhelmed by others, wish them great success. Remember the power of three will return to you when you send your white magick toward those who verbally abuse or have the desire to harm you.

 

8. Celebrate life

Enjoy every moment that life brings to you, whether a brief moment of pain or joy. Take part in events and ritual to celebrate the God and Goddess, make new friends who share your enthusiasm. Surround yourself with those who emit a natural positive energy and bring a smile to your lips.

 

9. Attune with the cycles of the Earth

When the sun goes down, your body may say it's time to rest. Listen to the natural circadian rhythm of your body. You were born on this planet and when the moon is high and full, changes in gravity works on your bodies chemistry. Denying your animal instincts and inner self that recognizes gaia's cycles will work against you.

 

10. Breathe and eat correctly

Live where you can breathe in clean air and have access to food from natural sources. Treating your body as the multi-tasking, super-machine at work and play takes a heavy toll. Filling up with sugar, fat and massive amounts of alcohol will dull the senses and quite possibly make you ill.

 

11. Exercise the body

A strong healthy body at any age; maiden, maid or crone will serve you well.

 

12. Meditate

This is an important tool for the witch who wishes to divine or commune with the deities. To conjure or make your spells work, you must be able to reach deeply and connect with gaia, the Goddess and God.

 

13. Honor the Goddess and God

All things are possible when you embrace the feminine and masculine parts of the faith of Wicca. One is as necessary as the other in nature and so mote it be.

 


Wiccan Rede

Wiccan Rede

Bid the law ye must,

In perfect love and perfect trust.

Live and let live, fairly take and fairly give.

Form the circle thrice about, to keep all evil spirits out.

To bind ye spell every time, let ye be speak in rhyme.

Deosil go by the waxing moon, singing out ye witches rune.

Widdershins go by the waning moon, chanting out ye baneful rune.

When lady’s moon is new, kiss her hand times two.

When the moon rides at her peak, then ye hearts desire seek.

Heed the north winds mighty gale, lock the door and trim the sail.

When the wind comes from the south, love will kiss thee on the mouth.

When the wind blows from the west, departed souls may have a rest.

When wind blows from the east, expect the new and set the feast.

Nine woods in ye cauldron go, burn them fast and burn them slow.

Elder be ye Lady’s tree, burn it not or cursed ye’ll be.

When the wheel begins to turn, soon ye Beltane burn.

When the wheel hath turned to Yule, light the log the horned one rules.

Heed ye flower, bush and tree the Lady blessed be.

Where the rippling water flows, cast a sure and truth ye’ll know.

When ye have and hold a need, harken not to others greed.

With a fool no season spend, not be counted as his friend.

Merry meet and merry part, bright the cheeks and warm the hearth.

Mind ye threefold law ye should, three times three times and three times good.

When misfortune is anow, wear the blue star apon your brow.

True in love ye must ever be, lest thy love be false to thee.

In these eight words the Wiccan Rede fulfill,

‘An ye harm none, do what ye will.
