Keep The Connection

Keep The Connection

My muscles ache and I’m wobbly on my feet. My Dad and I walk on a wooded trail in Pinecrest, California. My only thought is: Can I make it to the car?

On the drive back to our campsite, I think, I really need to go hiking more often. My muscles are just not in the condition I’d like them to be in.

Without enough hiking I lose valuable muscle mass and tone. And, without enough vigorous exercise, I’ll lose bone mass or even get a “flabby” heart, a cause of other health problems.

How does this connect with Wicca? We see something similar: without enough practice, you can lose your competency in the Wiccan path. Just as muscles become weaker due to lack of use, so does your proficiency in Wicca.

Out of practice in Wicca, your spells will not be as effective. They can even go bad because you’re failing to channel your energy to your desired goal. Such errors can cause undesired effects.

Fail to practice your faith and you may separate from nature which Wiccans hold so sacred. If you don’t pay attention to the cycles of nature (the cycles of life and the seasons), you may lose compassion for others who are going through personal cycles of growth and sometimes personal pain. Human beings live in a cycle of puberty, aging and other personal challenges.

Separating from nature, you may even lose compassion for yourself.

On the other hand, you can be diligent in your practice. You can exercise your Wiccan muscle just as you would support your body through physical exercise.

When your “Wiccan muscles” are in tune, you’ll take good care of yourself and stay aware of the Three Times Law.

Be good to your spirit like you’re good to your body through exercise.

Keep a diligent practice. Then you can avoid many situations of unintentionally hurting someone else. Through diligent practice, you are stronger and calmer. You have more patience.

So let’s flex all of our muscles to be both spiritually and physically healthy.

Blessings,

Moonwater SilverClaw is from the San Francisco bay area where she grew up and still resides. As a child, her connection with nature was strong as she played for hours in the field with animals. When she first heard about Wicca, she discovered that she was already doing many practices already! SilverClaw has been practicing Wicca since the early 1990’s. She has had many years of self study as a solitary, but eventually entered a coven and is now a high priestess. SilverClaw posts weekly at her blog. She felt called to write the blog even through she is dyslexic. SilverClaw is very grateful to her team of editors who help her communicate her knowledge to others through her writings. She says, “I wish to educate those who don’t understand what the craft is about. Some people may not yet identify themselves as pagan, but they’d like more information. I wish to be as open as I can to those who truly wish to learn.” Moonwater SilverClaw is a member of the Covenant of the Goddess and also a member of the NewWiccanChurch. She has given workshops and has addressed college students in Comparative Religion classes for over ten years. She lives with her cat Magick and her sweetheart of many years where she enjoys knitting and photography. Moonwater SilverClaw can be found on Facebook and LinkedIn and Referralkey.com/.
