  • Why Jesus Would Like Wicca * Wicca-Spirituality.com
    disciples Don t tell others what to do and don t judge anyone else Work out your own shortcomings Search out what is inside you He said If you bring forth what is within you what you bring forth will save you If you do not bring forth what is within you what you do not bring forth will destroy you Gospel of Thomas 70 It is necessary in Witchcraft to know yourself and to polish your rough edges to hone yourself to be a clearer vessel for the Divine It is that practice that makes magick and ritual powerful And so it s a necessary component of Wicca Be Like Children And You ll Be Close To God Jesus said it is only those who can be like children who will come to the Divine Children have two characteristics that are vital to spiritual pursuit They are humble and don t think they know it all They look on the world as the magical wondrous Divine place it is Wiccan mystics specialize in both We are constantly in awe of the wonder of life and death and rebirth And we know that what we know is only a tiny fragment of the whole Truth This way we come to perceive the Divine It is true that many who follow the Wiccan religion can be pretty judgemental about how to do things right and what the rules are and who is really a Witch etc But in Wicca Spirituality humility and openness is a cornerstone of the practice All Are Children of the Divine Jesus tried to point out that the so called differences among us are nothing The tale of the Good Samaritan says that everyone is your brother not just people who are like you We are all children of the One God the Divine that is the foundation of the whole Universe Wiccans understand this clearly And we also understand that it s not limited to human beings All creatures are brothers and sisters children of the Divine Heaven Is Here On Earth Wiccans believe that Heaven is all around us and all we must do is become aware of it Mostly we do that through celebrating the seasons of life and the seasons of the Earth We know that it is our perspective that lets us see Heaven or not And that it is through our actions and specifically through our choice of viewpoint that we find Heaven The Christ also tried to tell us that Heaven is right here right now He warned us that people who say Look here for Heaven look there for Heaven are misleading us And what that basically means is that the Divine is all around us Not waiting somewhere far away in space and time but here within us and within everything and everyone else As Wiccans we try to live that awareness Everyone Has Their Own Way To God Jesus said that Heaven had many rooms Not just

    who attack us in ironically his name Plus there is probably no one more misquoted and misunderstood than Jesus Christ And with disastrous results It s time to set the record straight 3 Wicca Reveres All Spiritual Sages I respect Jesus as an avatar or highly enlightened being And many Witches feel the same way Much of what he taught scraped free of the barnacles of Christian power mongering is as valid to Wiccans as to any spiritual seekers The Wiccan perspective on Jesus has much to do with this fundamental philosophy Truth is truth no matter where it is found or how deeply it is covered over with lies 4 Jesus Would Like Wicca Spirituality When you look at what he really taught and the spiritual meaning behind it Jesus could be from Wicca Spirituality The core of his real teachings is not far from ours 5 For the Christian Witches There are many people synthesizing the two traditions into one spiritual path Christian Wicca These reference will be particularly of interest to this group of Wiccans Many people are naturally a little allergic to Christianity having had it shoved down our throats so persistently Help Send The Message Out Find Out More But only a religion can afford to ostracize other teachers and sages Spirituality is by necessity inclusive of truth in any form Please don t let it offend you You can simply skip over those bits if they bother you With Bright Blessings Next Article If you liked this article please give it a thumbs up in Stumbleupon Sharing the good stuff with other seekers is a way of paying it forward Thanks so much From Christian to Wicca Articles From Christian to Wicca What You Need To Know From Christian to Wicca What You Can

  • A Christian Speaks On The Faith And Path Of Wicca * Wicca-Spirituality.com
    be judged Condemn not and you shall not be condemned Forgive and you will be forgiven cf Luke 6 36 38 Is it not clear Anyone who fails in these things will calling himself a Christian save him Anyone who obeys God in these things will being unbaptized condemn him Jesus said Not everyone who says to Me Lord Lord shall enter the kingdom of heaven but he who does the will of My Father in heaven Matthew 7 21 In addition to these words from the Gospel let us look at the words of Micah the Prophet centuries earlier who wrote He has shown you O man what is good And what does the Lord require of you But to do justly To love mercy And to walk humbly with your God Micah 6 8 Where in any of this does it say what doctrines one is to believe or whose teachings concerning reality one must accept All these things speak on how one ACTS how one lives one s life the kind of person one s actions gradually bring into being Yet it is not by good works that we earn our way into heaven because there is no way we can earn the free gift of God s mercy and grace which alone can save us But it is clear that it is not by faith in the sense of sharing the Christian faith that we are saved either The faith which saves us is not faith in the goodness of our works nor faith that we have the right theology and or belong to the right church Rather it is faith in God and in His mercy So then it is not of him who wills nor of him who runs but of God who has mercy Romans 9 16 But the Wiccans you will say do not have faith in God Yet by their own theology they certainly do Those who call them Satan worshippers are entirely wrong They do not worship Satan or even believe that Satan exists Instead they worship a Goddess and a God whom they understand as manifestations of a higher and unknown Deity Now if you are a Christian this will sound familiar to you and it should In the Bible we find the following Then Paul stood in the midst of the Areopagus and said Men of Athens I perceive that in all things you are very religious for as I was passing through considering the objects of your worship I even found an altar with this inscription TO THE UNKNOWN GOD Therefore the One whom you worship without knowing Him I proclaim to you Acts 17 22 23 The Wiccans worship the Unknown God as manifested to them in the form of a Goddess and a God Therefore our Bible tells us they worship the same God we do and if they do not know this we should know it For those of us who are unable to

  • Difference Between Religion And Spirituality
    by people who wanted to pursue spiritual evolution It is meant to point the way to enlightenment that is union with the Divine The trick is you can t understand let alone explain spiritual enlightenment unless you ve been there yourself So religion tried to explain spirituality without understanding the crucial bits What we re left with after you remove all the important bits of spirituality is religion Religion is an attempt to point the way to spirituality Where Religion Went Wrong Unfortunately this doppelganger was mistaken for the real thing thus becoming like the evil twin of spirituality And nothing good can come of devotion to a fraud This is why they say If you see the Buddha on the road kill him Because the Buddha you can see and understand is NOT the real Buddha The true Buddha lives inside of each of us That is the Divine is within you not outside of you This is where religion has gone wrong It has mistaken the image for the truth This is like going to a restaurant and eating the picture of pasta rather than the real thing When Moses raged against the worshipping of idols this is what he was talking about Religious people commonly mistake their idea of God for the actual God This is a complex issue But we could sum it up as we paint a face on the All and then forget the All and worship the face Thus a gulf is created between those who pursue spirituality the All and those who follow a religion one face of the All The Religion Spirituality Conflict Religion eventually comes into direct opposition to spirituality Such conflict is inevitable If you tell people that their literal word of God is only a metaphor their hackles are going to go up It s a challenge to their beliefs which feels like an attack at the very core of their self image Religion insists that there is only one Right And True Spirituality knows that it s all Right And True So spirituality can encompass religion with no distress but it rarely happens the other way Religion Can Be A Container For Spirituality For many people religion serves as the container for their spirituality This is the purest use of religion For others religion acts as a pseudo spirituality relieving them of the responsibility to actually live a spiritual life Religion at its worst reinforces ego self righteousness tyranny prejudice hatred etc But at its best it can be the gateway to spiritual enlightenment It s a Continuum In fact you could see it not so much as a difference between religion and spirituality as they are two points on a continuum The continuum is the level of experience of the Divine Religion is the starting point for most of us And spirituality is just advanced religion Religion and spirituality are not really contradictory ideas They can complement each other in the search for inner peace With

  • Energy Healer Dangers * Wicca-Spirituality.com
    illness or need and attempt to process it within your own energy field But your human body is too small a vessel for that vast amount of suffering It s Too Big For Any One Person A comparison would be trying to process all the sewage of say New York City through a household water filter What s going to happen to the filter Not only can it not do its job but it will be ruined Now consider that you re taking on the sewage of the entire world Unconscious Protections There are also unconscious ways that you may be protecting yourself But many of these band aid solutions are harmful in themselves such as smoking drinking drugs addictions in many forms I suspect that most addicts are highly sensitive people The ones I ve known certainly are Sleeping excessive hours is another way your body can compensate for unconsciously doing this work Excess body fat often serves highly sensitive people as a buffer from the energies around them as well as a storage battery for the power they are not yet consciously directing out to the world So this kind of unconscious protection can be even more harmful than the unconscious energy work The Danger To Others The other danger is that if you are sensitive to energy fields you are contributing to them as well Everything you feel for good or ill is a vibration that you are sending out to others in the world If you are not conscious of being an Energy Healer you will often be sending out very strong negative vibrations Without consciousness you have a lot of power to lower the vibration of the planet and increase the fear and pain of all beings on the Earth If you are conscious of your role as an Energy Healer this gives you incredible power to shift the energy balance in the world toward Love How To Be A Positive Force In The World So there is no difference between helping the Earth and helping yourself When you are aware of how the world s energy fields impact you and how you impact them you will liberate yourself from an immense amount of suffering When you learn to protect yourself and use your sensitivities in beneficial ways you ve taken a HUGE step in creating a healthier happier life for yourself And a healthier happier world So What Should You Do To Protect Yourself This isn t to say you can t or shouldn t work to heal the world s energy fields In fact you probably can t avoid it But it does the world no good if you re too ill or dead to help What all this means is that the most potent tool you have to heal the world is to heal yourself Although it sounds selfish there is no more radical act of service Take care of yourself first Then consciously explore how to safely be a channel for

    encompassing countless life forms and stellar bodies But when you re aware of them you can begin to work with the flow instead of against it This yields more successful action and happier feelings Planetary Event Energy Fields When major events happen on the planet everyone is affected in some way I think this is part of our fascination with disaster stories from around the world ie newscasts Subconsciously we know that we feel the effects too 9 11 is an example of this Energy fields are not affected by time either Many people prior to this date were feeling increased levels of stress I ve spoken to vets and animal trainers who said that the animals were exhibiting all kinds of stress reactions before 9 11 and immediately calmed down afterward In contrast to what the human mind does with the event which is to escalate it into terror and war When they say that violence toward one person is violence on all people this is even more true than they think Not only does everyone experience increased fear after violence but even those who are unaware of the attack pick up the energy field of danger that permeates the world This has become commonplace unfortunately so we don t recognise it like we don t notice the weight of the atmosphere around us But one of its manifestations is a feeling that the world is a dangerous place and it s out to get us In other words whenever you feel a lack of faith and trust in life you are caught in the planetary energy field of violence Genetic Line Energy Fields These are likely to be a specialized morphogenetic field but that s not certain Genetic line issues may be passed through the DNA or some other way that information is handed around the genetic tree The interesting thing about genetic line fields is that they don t just go one way With DNA it seems that the children are hapless recipients of whatever the parents have got for genes But on the energy level information travels both ways In other words whatever your parents and ancestors haven t dealt with will linger in your energy field to deal with and your children after you if you don t heal it AND whatever you deal with you simultaneously release it from the field of everyone in your genetic line backwards and forwards All your ancestors as well as all your descendents will be free of that issue If you watch you can see this in action It s not apparent to everyone because there are other factors involved Time lag for one And resistance for another The more resistant a person is often associated with their age the longer it takes for changes to filter through It s much more apparent with children and pets So who gets included in genetic line fields This is where it gets interesting Obviously anyone you are directly related to
