Witches and Personal Truth and Myteries

Religious witchcraft falls under the category of mystery religions.  In mystery religions the focus is not on worshiping the Gods through action and words but on having direct experiences with the Gods and the spirits.  Mystery religions are all about bringing forth the Gods from within you and becoming one with them.

Mystery religions are not religions of the book.  In a mystery religion it is not so much important on how the religion is practiced.  This is actually  a type of religion which is based on experience.  The lore and the rites of the religions are there to guide and direct you towards your interactions with the Gods and spirits and may even provide some context for the meetings.

The nature of these religions means that it is impossible for each witch or participant to ever have the exact same experience.  Even covens of traditional Wiccan practices like Gardnerian or Alexandriean while there is a core set of contexts and practices which provide a foundation for some what shared experiences, in the end each of the members of the covens have their own relationships and their own unique experiences.

Mystery religions can not be learned from a book.  With this statement one may be wondering why there are so many books out there on the market on witchcraft and pagan practices.  The answer is simple. The books provide key concepts and guidelines which can lead the seeker to having their own experiences.  With the books and the concepts within the books a witch is able to begin their understanding and practices for developing their own spiritual path.

This is ultimately the reason why two witches will never practice the same path even within the same tradition or base practice.  Each with must find their own way.  No one path is better than the other paths out there.  It is simply not the path for you.  Even if a path is not perfect for you there may be something in that path that will inspire you or have something to teach you.

Be open and let the spirits teach you.  Find your own wisdom and personal path.  Let your heart guide you and your path can do no wrong.  Go out there and experience life and what the spirits has to offer.  Play and go wild.  Don’t let other people tell you what to do.  This is your path and your journey.  Find your own truths and find your spirituality.

About loona wynd

Call me Loona. I am a part time model and an amateur writer. My blogs serve as my primary method of publication at the moment. These blogs are also a way for me to build an audience and get my name known. I have been involved with my spiritual path for half my life now. I have spent that whole time seeking and exploring every path I could find. While I will always identify as a witch and a Pagan, I do believe there are lessons that every path can teach me. When I am not writing, or modeling I spend my time watching science fiction (I'm a big Doctor Who fan as well as Warehouse 13, Eureka, Babylon 5, and other shows). I also enjoy shows like Ink Master, Bar Rescue, Hotel Hell, Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares. I also love Bones for the anthropological aspects. When not watching tv I spend time playing video games. I'm a retro gamer at heart. I would rather play a game on my NES than the newest game for my PC. I actually have more NES and SNES games than I do Wii, N64 or PS2. I do play Starcraft2, Everquest, Guild Wars, and random Facebook games. I also enjoy reading. My reading will often be in the spiritual or philosophical fields. This is what I enjoy to study. I also love to read science fiction. Anne McCaffery is actually my favorite sci-fi writer. Her Pern and Accorna series are my favorites. I currently hold an associates degree in Liberal Studies or Liberal Arts. My focus is on folklore, philosophy, classics of world lit, anthropology, and history. I do have a vast interest in Physics. I was actually happy with how much my physics teacher was able to connect modern physics with ancient and modern metaphysical philosophy.
