Rose Ariadne's Chitchcraft Blog

Dear friends,

I have many people ask me what it means to be Wiccan and I must admit that I spend a good amount of time thinking about those things myself. Although there isn’t much in the way of universality when it comes to Wicca, there are some principles that we do try to adhere to. I thought now was as good of a time as any to talk about some of those.

1. Harmony
The world is made up of sounds and vibrations, creating a musical harmony. At the very heart of Wicca is the idea that we must have harmony with the natural world as well as with the rhythm of life, since harmony is one of the Truths.

2. The One Divine
Although we might talk about the Goddess (yin) and the fathergod (yang), The Great Mystery is truly genderless and even somewhat incomprehensible to our 3-dimensional brains. Within the universe, we might separate powers into feminine and masculine forms in order to understand them, but the actual truths don’t really add up to our own concepts of man and woman. They are omnipresent.
3. The Equality of All Beings
The Great Mystery is present within everything that exists. This means that the Divine is in every rock, tree, creek, and person. This means that everything should be treated with respect and equality.

4. All Is Sacred
Because the Divine exists in all things, this also means that everything is sacred and should be treated as such. Even our bodies should be treated as temples, since the Divine lives within them.

5. Nothing is Gone Forever
You can never really lose anything for good since everything is a part of the circle of life. Matter can change and energy can alter, but it can’t truly be destroyed. When the timing is right, everything will emerge again in a new form. This is one way of looking at death as well.

6. Bring No Harm to Others
Because we are all part of the same mystery, it is important not to bring any harm to others since by doing this we are also harming ourselves. Instead of harming others, we should try to serve our Purpose instead. All of our actions eventually come back to us again so living a life that does not bring pain to others is ideal.

7. Listen to the Heart

Since the heart acts as the voice of the Divine, we consider it our highest authority. (It’s difficult to rely on the brain.) When you follow your heart, you are following a guide that is true.

8. False Power is Not Real Power

If you gain power and use it for force, then it’s not real power that you possess. You risk violating the philosophies behind Wiccan beliefs if you try to accumulate power into your hands and use it for something that is detrimental to those around you.

9. Serving The Divine

Like most things, the Divine is ever-changing. In order to thrive, the Divine depends on us for balance. Living our dreams and fulfilling our potential is just one way of giving thanks and returning gratitude for all that we have received. It is important to use your talents to the best of your ability. You were given them for a reason.

10. Having Personal Responsibility

Each person is responsible for their own actions, words, and decisions. You are also responsible for your inactions. There is power contained in everything that you do, including your thoughts, and it’s important to take personal responsibility for the things that you do.

There are many more important principles to consider, of course, but there are certainly some of my favorites. I especially try to adhere to the personal responsibility and try to instill that within my own children. For awhile, when my oldest child was first learning to walk, whenever he would fall down or run into something we would slap that object and say, “Bad table!” However, I soon learned the folly of my ways. This was not teaching my child to be careful-it was blaming the table! That was not helpful at all.

As a parent, it can be especially difficult to try to follow your own path when you really just want what’s best for your children. It is important, however, to try to maintain some balance in that-to use your talents as well as provide food and shelter and stability for them.

I do hope that everyone is having a productive and peaceful week and that you are able to stop, take some time, and appreciate those that are in your life and the many blessings that you have. Sometimes, we get so busy and overwhelmed with the little things that we forget to stop and see the big picture.

Brightest blessings,

Rose Ariadne
