This is again another goal that applies to every single person on Earth and is generally good to be followed, but it plays a very special role in every Witch’s life. Witchcraft, especially Natural Witchcraft, which is what we talk about here, means to attune one’s energy within to the energy without in order to use it towards a goal. The energy without is the Natural Energy, the Universal Energy, no matter how you choose to call it…Chi, Prana, Ki etc As you can easily imagine, this energy is the energy of the Earth, the planet that we call home and that we so often forget to thank. The most immediate vibrations we receive are those of Mother Earth, and then those of the stars and other planets. We are part of this energy…Actually, this is the energy that keeps us on and alive.
We receive this energy through breathing, this is why breathing is so important to be conscious and calm. My Yoga teacher, says that breath and mind are interconnected and I couldn’t agree more…A calm mind helps us breathe calmly, while calm breathing helps us get rid of anxiety. Breathing is vibration, it is the universal language we all share and through which we all communicate to a level. Breathing can tune us to the natural rhythms around us, and that’s the reason it can relax us and even heal us. It is vital for human beings, all human beings, to be attuned to the Natural rhythms. They still play a huge role in our lives, as it is only natural. Have you ever felt more tired during Spring? Do you feel the need to be more extrovert during Summer, while during Winter you feel more introvert? Do you think this is a coincidence? All living beings follow Earth’s rhythms. Just a look around you will clearly show it.
Witches, as pagans, attune to Earth’s rhythms-or should- every single day. Moreover, there are the Sabbats that every witch celebrates. These Sabbats follow the turns of the wheel and the changes of the seasons. We will refer to the Sabbats later on more analytically. A witch respects all living beings, being them animals, plants, crystals…Through communication with everything around, we can attune ourselves more to the Earth’s vibrations and rhythms, as every living being vibrates. Being in the flow is a phrase that has been heard a lot in the last years and it holds a very important truth. In Antigone, Creon says “The most persisting horses are the ones that are more severely tamed” and the story about the reeds that try to resist the power and flow of water and at last break. Being in the flow of life, noticing and accepting the changes and moving on is the only way for even the difficulties to become easier.
So…Take a deep breath and feel the vibrations! Tune in, be happy!
In Love and Light always,
