Fixing and Compiling My Path

It started with a word document named Wicca, and I put a lot of stuff in there. Then I tried to make it organized, which didn’t work. Now I’ve erased that and opened a new document, which I’m now calling My Path. And I’m calling it that because I’m not wiccan. Partly because I’m not relating to wicca 100 %, partly because I’ve not been actively studying and being spiritual long enough to call me that. And I have respect for people out there who are true wiccans, that I won’t call myself that. I don’t wanna bee seen as one of those people who calls themselves wicca after two weeks.

So I’m now sitting and compiling things that I believe in, and that I have with me in my path. People sometimes call Wicca the New Old Religion, and I feel like that, in a way. I’m not new to paganism, but I’m new to try to actively know and practice paganism and witchcraft. I’m currently taking things I’ve learned and writing it down in a word document which currently is my Book of Shadows, while listening to a video by Witchontherocks on YouTube about customizing your spirituality.

I know it will take a while to get into my spirituality and grow in it. It’s one thing to gather knowledge, it’s a totally other thing to know the knowledge. I’m not in a hurry, but I can admit that I’d like to know things now and do things now. But I’m also mature enough to know that’s impossible and won’t get me anything.

So I’m reading, learning, but most importantly I’m trying to go my own way.

“it’s not what you say, it’s what you feel and believe inside. Anyone can spout off words. You know anyone can just spew bullshit. That doesn’t mean it’s gonna manifest or mean anything. And reading shit from a book. These *holding up a book* are examples, people, these are not what you’re supposed to live your life by. Or live you entire spiritual path by.”  – Witchontherocks

Now I’ve rambled enough, check out this video, and blessed be.

A Try At Meditation

So, I’m sitting on the sofa next to my boyfriend and I’m trying to meditate. It’s working good enough, since he’s sitting next to me shouting at the game he’s playing on his computer. But it breaks my concentration so I gave up. I listened to some meditation music on YouTube and tried to keep in mind what I’ve read and heard about meditating.

This was more an exercise for me than a true meditation. I thought about clearing my mind and grounding myself. Since I’m not very good at concentrating at things, I’ve got a short attention-span, it’s difficult but I’m determined to learn how to clear and ground myself. I think I would feel physically and mentally better and more at peace if I do.

I was able to relax and get that almost floating feeling, but I couldn’t seem to center and ground myself. I keep my concentration by physically looking straightforward on the insides of my eyelids. If I do that, I feel more centered and “there”. Some people imagine their chakras while centering and grounding, but I’m not sure if that’s working. Perhaps I just need more practice and understating of what I’m doing.

I’ve heard and read of people grounding by thinking of themselves as trees. That they ground themselves by imagining roots going into the earth and branching stretching toward the sun. It kind of worked for me. I could pull up a picture of myself sitting by a tree and sunlight shining. But I can only conjure the image from a 3rd point of view, I can’t center the image on myself at all.

It worked better when I tried imagining a tree made of blue water in a pond for some reason, probably since I’m a water sign. I’ll experiment a bit more, but when I’m at my own place and my boyfriend isn’t sitting about 40 cm from me and shouting at a computer screen, bless his heart.

Youtube Video: So You’ve Found Wicca, Now What?

So I found this Youtube channel, Witchontherocks, and this video really spoke to me, I love this girl’s view on wicca and witchcraft. She talks about wicca and being really radical and straightforward about it.

Take a look and tell me what you think!

The Goddess And The Weaver

Min favoritlåt just nu som jag alltid har på hjärnan!

The Goddess And The Weaver

Arachnia weaves
And she weaves so well
She weaves a passage
Where the Gods will fly

Athena laughs as
She casts her spell
While she watches
From her loom on high

Athena
Athena
Goddess-born lady
You’re a jealous one

And Arachnia knows
That you are watching her
Watching for her work
To be undone

Athena
Have you set the quest
Will you take the weave
And will you break the weft

Or will you let this lady
Spin her tapestry
Of the tale untold
And then set her free

Arachnia weaves
And she weaves so well
She weaves a passage
Where the Gods will fly

Athena laughs as
She casts her spell
While she watches
From her loom on high

Arachne
Arachnia
The Goddess Athena’s
Got a quest for you

And you must weave a
Story of the Gods that rule
In all their mystery
And you must tell it true

So Arachnia’s woven
The seven moons
She’s spun the silver thread
Upon an apple wood loom

And she’s told the story
Of the gods that rule
In all their mystery
And yes, she’s told it true

Arachnia weaves
And she weaves so well
She weaves a passage
Where the Gods will fly

Athena laughs as
She casts her spell
While she watches
From her loom on high

So Athena came to earth
Disguised as a crone
To gaze upon the tapestry
This mortal woman’s sewn

And in and out of the fabric
That was stretched across the loom
The sins and the secrets
Of the Gods were shown

Athena
Athena
Goddess born lady
You’re and angry one

And as you spin your
Spell around Arachnia
To shift her shape
Into a weaving one

And as Arachnia sits
And weaves upon her web
She casts her mind back
And remembers when

She told the story
Of the Gods that rule
In all their mystery
And she told it true

Arachnia weaves
And she weaves so well
She weaves a passage
Where the Gods will fly

Athena laughs as
She casts her spell
While she watches
From her loom on high

Arachnia weaves
And she weaves so well
She weaves a passage
Where the Gods will fly

Athena laughs as
She casts her spell
While she watches
From her loom on high
