When you decided to follow the Wiccan path, you probably didn't say to yourself, "I'm doing this so I can be physically, emotionally, and mentally healthy!"
You must have had another main reason for becoming a Wiccan. But good news — practicing witchcraft is a huge health benefit in itself!
Let's discover 6 reasons why being Wiccan makes you live happier, healthier, and even longer.
Grounding is the act of linking your personal energy with the Earth's, while centering is locating the source of your personal energy, and then harnessing that power. What is unique about Wicca is the belief that nature has infinite energy that you can tap and absorb. The Earth generously gives. It is like a fountain of power from which you can drink and become strong.
Conversely, grounding can also mean releasing an excess of energy from your body. Whenever you're feeling restless due to anxiety or anger, take a moment to connect to the ground on which you are walking. By doing this, the Earth will absorb this excess energy and will rejuvenate you with a fresh supply of positive, radiant power.
A lot of Wiccans practice meditation. Meditation has been proven to lower stress and mitigate anxiety and depression. It has also helped people with high blood pressure and digestive problems. You can do daily meditation to achieve these health benefits, or you may use it as a way to connect with the gods or goddesses.
There are two basic types of meditation: concentration and mindfulness. The first one entails you to focus on a single thing, like an image, thought, a piece of music/mantra, or even your own breathing. The second type will let you become fully aware of all your thoughts by becoming detached and just observing them as they pass.
Many Wiccans are witnesses to the sheer power of their amulet. The amulet, which ancient Egyptian warriors wore during wartime, can be a necklace, bracelet, ring, or anything that you can wear and has been cleansed, blessed, and charged. Having one gives you the affirmation that you have the power to carry on your day!
When choosing your modern-day amulet, you must first know which type of jewelry you'll work best with. This depends on how visible you want your amulet to be, or whether you're comfortable enough when wearing it.
Once you've decided on your amulet type, you should make sure that its source is dependable and credible. You wouldn't want to be getting an amulet that breaks easily, because it's made from low-quality materials. Or one that arrives at your doorstep already charged with negative energy, because the person who shipped it might have been having a bad day and transferred those bad vibes to your amulet.
Here at The Moonlight Shop, you can rest assured that our jewelry is made from materials of superb quality. The material is hypoallergenic, stainless, and isn't prone to tarnishing easily. Of course, we make sure that the folks who do the packing and shipping only sprinkle in positive energy on your package.
If you don't have your personal amulet yet - something you wear to always remind you of your power - then it's high time you get one. You'll be amazed at the limits that you'll be pushing once you realize that you still have so much potential to unleash.
