Wicca is not only a religion; it’s also a lifestyle. Some of the simplest acts can be a ritual to honor the Gods. It may be difficult to find the spiritual nature in your everyday life. One thing is to try to look at the positive side of things. This can really help!
Instead of saying “I hate this job!”, say something like “This job may really be bad but it pays the bills, buys me food, or buys me nice cloths.” So the solutions doesn’t have to be doing more rituals. Just changing the way you view the world can be a spiritualy moving experience! Applying Wiccan principles to our everyday lives is a way to bring our religion to our life.
Try to take at least 5 minutes a day to have sacred time for yourself. The following is a list of my suggestions:
- Make an offering everyday to the Gods.
- Do morning and/or evening meditations.
- Do morning and evening prayers and sayings of thanks.
- Work on arts and crafts with a Wiccan theme.
- Listen to classical or contemporary Pagan music.
- Tend to or plant flowers and plants.
- Volunteer some of your free time to a good cause.
- Keep a journal of your involvement in the Wiccan Ways
- Correspond with other Pagans or Wiccans.
- Meditate using stones.
- Write new rituals.
- Experiment with different divination tools.
- Visit gardens and local parks. While there try to clean up any litter you may see.
- Listen to and communicate with animals.
See how simple it can be? Of course, when you rearrange your thinking patterns, this list can be expanded!
