13 Goals Of A Witch





13 Goals of a Witch

Merry Meet :))) Today I wanted to go over something I feel is very important and should be included in every Book of Shadows; the 13 Goals of a Witch. These are goals that we should try to incorporate into every day life as we walk our path. When you begin working with these, you may want to start out working with one for a week or two so that you may focus on it properly. When you feel you are incorporating it into your life consistently, add the next one. If you follow all of them, you will see a difference in your path. So let's take a look at them.

1. Know Yourself:

One of the most important things I've learned on my path is the journey of finding your true self. So many of us run through life and we really don't have a solid foundation on who we truly are. Every one of us is different and that's part of the beauty of mankind. So what makes you you? Take time to learn about yourself. Start keeping a journal to record your thoughts. Start a board on pinterest and start pinning things that you love, you'd be amazed at the insight you can gain from this. Try to take a good look at yourself. If you have negative habits, all of us do :P :))) Don't hold them against you. Acknowledge them and either choose to embrace them or change them. This is a personal spiritual journey that you are on, and the base of it needs to be getting to know you, for that will help you determine how to move forward


2. Know Your Craft: 

 In the next goal, we will cover learning. You must get to know your craft. It's not enough just to read about it, make sure you are putting it into practice as often as possible. When you work with something you will get to know it. Sure we can read books upon books about how to work with stones, for example, however when you hold that stone in your hand and feel it's energy, that contributes to your working knowledge of the craft for now you are forming your own interpretation. Take in as much information as you can, adopt what you like, leave what you don't, but interpret it and learn to work with it.

3. Learn:


There are so many different areas that you can study in the craft. It's part of why I absolutely adore being Wiccan. There are just so many things I want to learn and see and do. We are fortunate enough to live in a time where the knowledge base accessible to us is absolutely profound. So try to learn one new thing each day to do with your craft. You've already made the first step by joining me here on Daily Magick! :)))) You can read an article, read a book on a topic related to the craft, ask a question, take a class, try something new, you get the idea :))))) Look for things that interest you within the class, the topics are absolutely endless. Here's a few to get you started: Rituals, Spellwork, Energy Work, Healing, Chakras, Intuition, Angels, Herbs, Crystals & Gemstones, Deities, History, and the list goes on and on. You must realize that no matter how knowledgeable you are of your craft, there is always something more that you can learn.


4. Apply Knowledge With Wisdom:


The more you learn the easier it will be for you to walk your path. You will find that instead of getting frustrated in life, you will have the answers for what it is that you need to do. You need to use wisdom to make the best decision possible. If you are unsure, take a moment or the time you need to make the right choice. Realize that no matter how wise we are, there is always something more to learn and when others offer opinions, make sure you listen. You don't have to agree, but realize that they have their own perspective and path and honor that.


5. Achieve Balance:


It is important that we balance everything and I do mean everything. You need to make sure you balance everything in your personal, professional, and spiritual life. Make sure you never spend too much time in one place for all are necessary to achieve that proper balance. Look for other ways you can balance things, if you take something, can you give back something in it's place? When your life is balanced you will know it as your emotions will be balanced the majority of the time.


6. Keep Your Thoughts in Good Order:


One of the things we do is work with energy. Your thoughts are imperative to the energy you work with. You need to realize that the more experienced you get, you will start manifesting your desires just by thinking about them. The more sensitive you become and open to your gifts, the quicker this can happen. So you need to train your brain. If a negative thought creeps up work to replace it immediately with something positive. Am I saying never have a bad day? No. We are all going to go through tough times. Take the time to let the emotions out, ground, and start again with the realization that you control your life by controlling your thoughts. It's extremely important you master this skill.


7. Keep Your Words in Good Order:

Words are so powerful. You can cause changes in others lives with the words that you say. Every time you speak you need to realize this. Your words carry power, and you need to always treat them as such. Whatever you put out there will come back to you, so you need to be very mindful of what you are putting out there. Before you say something always consider the impact it will have on the other person. Now are you never gonna mess this up? Nope lol :))) When you do, realize it, and apologize then try again. The more you do this the easier it will become. For those of you who are empaths, this is likely a very big lifestyle for you as you will be aware of your impact upon others the minute you speak. For those of you who are empaths you need to realize that there is a fine line here. If someone is hurting you, you have every right to say no politely and walk away. That goes for anyone. I try to minimize arguing. If I see one coming I will ask for some time to cool down and revisit it. It's better then trying to have a discussion when emotions are high as you can cause unintended pain to someone else.


8. Celebrate Life:

Look around you! :)))) It's a beautiful world filled with amazing people, animals, trees, and life. Realize that each day you are here you have a precious gift and treat it as such. If you are not having fun in life then change your life. It will be worth it when you do. The divine want you to enjoy life and be able to appreciate the precious gifts that are all around you. Make sure you live your life


9. Attune With the Cycles of the Earth:

Most of you will find that you have a natural affinity for the cycles of the Earth. As you walk your path start learning about all the Sabbats and Esbats. Learn how each turn of the Wheel of the Year affects you and the lunar cycles. Note your experiences with them and how they affect you. Compare your results with others for you will find similarities ;)


10. Breathe and Eat Correctly:

Deep Breath. Ready? :))) Good. I tell you it's one of the simplest things but something I find gets overlooked the most. If you are stressed come back to center and breathe. One deep breath can really make a huge difference in a situation. You need to eat correctly as well as that can have huge impacts on your personality. You may find you get easily angered if you are hungry or low on a certain vitamin. Your body is a temple for your soul in this life and you need to treat it as such. It will literally impact every area of your life


11. Exercise the Body:

This is soooo important! You can walk, run, do jumping jacks, swim, whatever you like just move. When your body is in shape things will come easier, you will have extra confidence, and you will just all around feel better. Almost any form of exercise is grounding as well. Something stressing you out? Don't sit there, go for a 20 minute walk and then come back to it. More often than not, you will have the solution when you come back and it beats sitting in one spot replaying it through your mind 60 times for that answer. In doing this you are honoring the gift of you that the divine have blessed you with.


12. Meditate:

When we mediate we quiet the mind and focus our thoughts allowing us to receive messages from our guides easier. It reduces stress in our lives and gives us the ability to think clearly. Many of you have said that you don't have the time to meditate or have problems mediating. If this is the case try going for long quiet walks or taking up something creative like painting that quiets your mind and allows you to listen to your true self and your guides.


13. Honor the Goddess and the God:

Honor the God and Goddess whenever you can. A simple idea for this is simply giving thanks each night as you fall asleep. Honor them through celebrating the Esbats and Sabbats and celebrating them in any way you can. Realize that you walk hand in hand with the divine and they are there to help you :))) Make that connection and allow them to, and then thank them for their assistance. 

Much Love and Many Blessings,
