182 - Charlie’s Spiritual Growth

This was the last week on Our Pagan Opinions but the video upload failed several times. I decided to give you guys something to watch and upload it on my personal channel. :)

[09.29.] Religion, Spirituality, and Science

First off, I am so sorry for the length of this video!! It was longer but I cut 10 minutes out of it. I am discussing the difference between Religion and Spirituality and then I discuss the relationship of those two concepts to Psychology (specifically the brain, dreams, and extending out into Near Death Experiences). The website I reference is: www.nderf.org (Near Death Experience Research Foundation). I have to make it know that I believe Spirituality is extremely broad, and you do NOT have to believe in a deity/God/Goddess in order to be Spiritual.

What is Wicca

Wicca is commonly described as a Neopagan faith, though Isaac Bonewits, the influential Neo-druid, has claimed that early
Wicca (at a time when it was still called “Witchcraft”) was in fact a Meso-Pagan path. Wicca as a religion was introduced by Gerald Gardner in the 1950s.
Wicca is a deep appreciation and
awe in watching the sunrise or sunset, the forest in the light of a glowing moon, a meadow enchanted by the first light of day.

Wicca is the fall of colorful autumn leaves, and the softness of winter snow.
Wicca is a belief system and way of life based upon the reconstruction of pre-Christian traditions originating in Ireland, Scotland, and Wales.
Wiccan believe that the spirit of the One, Goddess and God exist in all things.

Wicca is essentially an immanent religion, and for some Wiccans, this idea also involves elements of animism.
Wicca is a belief system and way of life based upon the reconstruction of pre-Christian traditions originating in Ireland,
Scotland, and Wales. Wiccan practice tolerance and acceptance toward all other religions as long as those faiths do not persecute others or
violate the tenant of “Harm None.Wiccans have great reverence for the Earth and for their Goddess and her consort, the horned God.
Wiccans do not recognize an all-evil deity or quasi-deity like Satan.

Wicca as a religion was introduced by Gerald Gardner in the 1950s. Wicca is not an ancient religion, but Gardner did incorporate
some old esoteric knoweldge into his original tradition, including Eastern mysticism, Kabballah, and British legend.

Wicca does not embrace the concepts of sin, heaven or hell, the evils of sex or nudity, confession, Satanism, animal
sacrifice, or the inferiority of women.
Wiccans do NOT believe in hurting people, taking drugs, killing animals, telling lies, doing sexually perversive acts, drinking animal’s blood, stealing, summoning demons (they don’t believe in demons) or performing Black magic.
Wicca is not traditional folk magic and all magic is not necessarily Wiccan, anymore than all people who pray belong to any particular religion.

How To Find Information For The Beginner Wicca

While flipping through television channels three years ago. A news report about a man who followed Wicca caught my eye. He said he had a premonition the night before buying the winning ticket that he would win. So he went to the local mart and bought a ticket and sure enough he won.

I had heard about Wicca before but now I was intrigued. What was the power of Wicca that this man attributed he good fortune to it?

I turned on my computer and began surfing the web to learn all I could.

One thing i figured out , is that it is very difficult to find good information about Wicca, because unlike Judaism and Catholicism, Wicca has different meanings to different people. There is no book like the Bible or the Torah. In my mind this is a good thing as I never believed that there is one set of rules to follow when it comes to religion.

The next problem I encountered in my search for answers was Wicca has attracted many people who simply want to take advantage of people like me. These so called experts spread miss truths and use false knowledge for power and control. Wicca has been underground for so long because of persecution it made it easy for these people. There are however many good people filled with knowledge and they are just waiting for you to find them.

How do you find them?

Finding good information is no longer hard. All you have to do is search on Google and you will find many communities filled with good knowledgeable people. Sites like these tend to weed out the people trying to spread misinformation. In these communities you will find people at every stage of learning from beginners like me to life long second and third generation practitioners.

These communities will welcome you with open arms and be filled with useful information. Following Wicca no longer has to be a solitary pursuit.

Blessed Be.
