My Beliefs – inspired by Sage Silvermoon’s Group Discussion

Leave a comment

This is just a little on who I am and what my beliefs are. I know there will be some who won’t agree and to be honest that’s fair I guess. This is my belief, I’m a unique individual.

Creation: I believe we came from the divine being known as the ‘All’ or the Universe. They shared their power with the Lord and Lady, who then shared it with us. They gave us the seed, all we need to do is harness growth and become a powerful yet wise tree. Not that we are trees, its based on all people being able to develop their personal growth.

God/Goddess/Supreme Being: I refer to them as the Lord and Lady, I don’t yet have any definitive names yet, but I hope to get there.

My chosen deities: So far, I call upon the Lord and Lady. As for the pantheons I follow the Roman and Greek pantheon. I have for some time now used Kemetic Wicca, so I also follow the Egyptian pantheon. I have looked into other pantheons and I don’t fully agree with the people who follow them. I am currently adapting my Buddhist beliefs into Wicca and other pagan worship, and as well as my Native American and West African and Caribbean heritage. I have also looked into Hinduism, due to my love for Yoga! I also participate in Tao (pronounced ‘dow’) and Xiolin (‘sh-oww-lin’) and Tai (ty) Chi classes due to my raising crane kung fu. So it’s a broad one, but I love it!

What happens when we die: I believe we leave our physical bodies behind and our soul’s then journey to Summerland. If we have unfinished business, then we have to sort it before we ‘pass on’. At Samhain, the void between the world of the living and the world of the dead thins dramatically, so much so we can maybe see, feel and/or hear our loved ones; hence the reason why we should burn lots of white candles at midnight. After we chill in Summerland for a couple days or a few years we then go back to the earth, to inhabit a physical body. Reincarnation to be exact, we enter humans, but you can also enter the body of animals and bugs.

Purpose of being here: To live and learn, to teach and to reach a level of heightened enlightenment, spiritually and physically.

Spirit Animals/Animal Totems: My spirit guide is the lone wolf. My grandfather (Arawaak Indian) has noticed that from the first time he met me he knew I was destined to have lots of acquaintances but not many friends. He always called me the lone wolf or ‘loner’. I never understood until one summer I flew out to visit him and he taught me ways to find and contact my spirit guide. It took several attempts but I found out it was a wolf. I hope in the future to get a dog to represent my canine guide.

Other beliefs:
-Magick is real. It is using the universal energy and directing it to a specific focus.
-Anything is possible if you truly believe. The problem is letting go of the restrictions we have in our minds.
-Do whatever you want to do, so long as you harm no one, including yourself. This is not just physical harm, but spiritual, emotional, psychological, etc.
-Time is infinite and circular, not linear.
-Mother Earth is pissed off at humans. We do not treat her well.
-Gemstone magick
-Elemental affinities and magick
———————-(Other beliefs are from Sage Silvermoon)
Here’s mine, I agree with the above wholeheartedly that’s why I copied them.
-Divination – important to show you how your future or answers to questions will play out, this isn’t to say they are a definitive answer, thy are only guidelines to get you to think on your feet!
-‘We have no time to stand and stare’ – William Henry Davies
-Consider herbal cures.
-Meditate when you can for at least 30 mins a day.
-Believe in yourself.
-Have fun, but remember ‘harm none’.
-Listen to your inner self.

I can gladly say after 9 years of practice I feel good calling myself a Witch, but not just any Witch, to be more specific an Eclectic Witch. After years of being tormented by an acquaintance for not doing the Wicca she does, I can sit back and say, ‘No, I’m happy with who I am, even if your not. Its your loss not mine!’

Em Hotep!
