How do you put your thoughts into words about what you believe in, when it comes to explaining your spiritual path to others?
Particularly if you are eclectic in nature and don’t follow one definitive creed that others can easily recognise.
Obviously I won’t be able to cover my entire worldview in this blog post but it is my intention that by sharing what I feel resonates at my core, may help you to identify what feels good for you.
Everything in this post is based on my personal understanding. Don’t accept anything as true for you just because someone told you it is ~ even me! Take it into your heart and see how it resonates for you.
My spiritual practise is eclectic based on my personal experience, practice of magick and nature based values which are somewhat shamanic in nature. Thus I choose to call myself a Hedgewitch. In short, I do what feels right for me intuitively.
I consider my path a living philosophy rather than a religion and I have no interest in any traditional or formal aspects of the Craft (no offence to anyone following a specific tradition). Truthfully, I don’t take to anyone telling me what to do, how to do it, when to do it or whether I can do it.
My God-Source is not an isolated superior entity from me. We are one and the same. I don’t require an intermediary for what I am capable of doing myself.
In this incarnation I am expressing my divinity in a physical, sensorial plane. Just like you. There is nothing to fix for I am already a whole divine being choosing to find expression in a human form.
While I respect the ancient forces of nature, the cosmos and the Collective Unconscious, I worship none. I work directly with creative Source energy, in short, pure life force, a perfect amalgamation of the sacred feminine and masculine.
I do not work with gods and goddesses in any formalised manner whatsoever such as a specific pantheon, neither am I devotee to a patron/matron deity. I firmly accept that worship on any level is placing the power outside of myself and giving it away to something external as perceived separate from me.
We are all interconnected as we stem from the same Source which flows through us all the time as life force. I maintain a relationship with Spirit Allies through meditation and when I pray I commune with Spirit/Source directly.
Connecting and aligning with the natural rhythms and cycles of Earth keeps me grounded, energised and creates a sense of fulfilment within me.
At times I will evoke a specific energy to assist with a ritual or spell which I consider archetypal; something that epitomises the essence of what I am creating. This could be an elemental or celestial energy, a symbol such as a Rune or Tarot card.
At other times I enlist Magickal Allies like an archangel, overlighting deva of the mineral or plant variety or an avatar (embodiment) like Khutumi or Pallas Athena. I also work with fae and ancestral spirits. Either way, they are just varying expressions of original non-denominational Source energy shaped by our perception across time.
Archetypes are etheric imprints that exist in our psyches; not limited to human form and originating from the Collective Unconscious which holds all of humankind’s experience and knowledge generated throughout time, which we are all able to access upon asking.
Archetypes are the language of the mind and can often convey that which the verbal and written cannot.
Conjuring the assistance of archetypes is actually you extending your ability to perceive through fragments of your deeper self. When you summon them you are collecting information from the Collective Unconscious and widening the reach of your magick. You are simply re-membering an aspect of yourself and restoring it to wholeness within you.
It’s like enlisting a creative team that glides along sentient energy to draw people, situations and circumstances that yield in your favour into your realm. These energies weave strands of the matrix together for synchronicity to occur and are fuelled by the Collective Unconscious through our memory and solicitation of them.
Those who are not remembered or called upon fade out of existence because there is no life force energy flowing their way to sustain them.
I am committed to creating better for myself, impacting others positively and to contribute to the evolution of the entire universe at large. I choose to be in service from a soul level not to serve as a subject to any one master. I do not bind myself to any restricted form of this because my spiritual path shifts and expands with my consciousness.
