“Don’t you guys worship the devil?”
Well, no. That’s a common misconception.
Anyway, in this post, I’m going to talk about the reasons why I got into Wicca, and the benefits I see in it.
- I already enjoy a lot of the stuff related to it
Even prior to looking into Wicca, I already liked things that I later found were used in Wicca, such as:
- Spending time in nature
- Using crystal energy
- Using candles/incense to inspire certain atmospheres
- Paying attention to lunar cycles
- Setting intentions and taking control of my life
The use of magick/ritual to manifest positive situations that will improve our lives and/or the lives of others.
- Connection to a universal energy
For many years, I have sought a spiritual path and some sort of universal connection. For a while, I explored Christianity, however, I could not reconcile my own core values with the core values of the religion at large. I find that Wicca is a religion that promotes equality, acceptance, and oneness with nature and the energy that makes up our universe. This sits well with me.
- “An It Harm None, Do As Ye Will”
The Wiccan Rede sums up my moral system very well. It basically means, as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone (either others or yourself), do what you want to do. I very much believe in this and I believe we would all benefit from living this way.
