Pagan Blog Project: E is for Effort

Once again we have a weekly post for the Pagan blog project.  This weeks topic is all about spiritual development and practices.  Its about why they call it working magic and working rituals and not just reading the material.  Today we are going to talk about Effort and why Effort is so important.

Effort in spiritual studies

This is a lesson I have learned myself.  Spiritual development and the development of spiritual and magical skills are like every other skill set and practices.  You need to actually work at them and practice them to develop them.  You can read the theories and some of the exercises and gain a type of knowledge.  When you actually want to make the changes you need to do the actual exercises and work in order to have the experiences.

I’m saying that you need to put effort into the work.  You can’t just do a meditation once and get everything you need out of it.  You cant just do a practical exercise a handful of times and expect to get anywhere spiritually.  In order to really have mystery experiences with spirits and to really develop skills in meditation and mental focus you need to put in effort.

The more effort you put into your spiritual development the stronger your outcomes will be.  The more time you put into development of  your skills the sooner you will be able to see results.  There is a lot of work in spiritual development.  In many places you will have to face your darkest sides and deepest fears.  This is hard work.  This is why it is important to put your all into it.

Often there are meditations to meet Gods and Goddesses.  The more often you do those meditations the more you will learn from them.  The deeper your relationships will grow.  These are part of how mysteries are experienced and spiritual truths are found.  If you only do the meditations a handful of times your relationships will not be as deep as they could be.

Putting effort into your practice and into your studies is going to pay off in the long run.  The better you are at learning to enter a meditative state eventually you will be able to achieve the state any where and at any time by using physical triggers.  You will also be able to manifest thought changes instantly and be able to know how to train yourself to shift one emotional state into another through working vibrations and other techniques.

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.
