A Day for Reading a Book


I have books that seemed to call to me to be purchased yet are rarely opened.  There are three books in particular that really “called” to me which I have slacked on reading.  Those three are:

  • The Temple of Shamanic Witchcraft by Christopher Penczak
  • Wicca for Beginners by Thea Sabin
  • The Witches’ Goddess by Janet and Stewart Farrar

Today I have been reading Wicca for Beginners.  It seems fitting after watching a documentary last night about how Gerald Gardner founded Wicca.  Although I don’t consider myself Wiccan, the religion does provide a foundation for modern witches to learn from.  There are also certainly aspects of the religion that jive with me.  Some of its basic principles that I connect with are:

  • Divine is too large and transcendent for us to fully comprehend.  Thus, Wiccans perceive Deity in different facets/aspects.
  • Psychic abilities are real and innate within each of us.
  • Magic is real.  To practice magic (or magick, as I prefer to spell it) is to create change in accordance with one’s will.
  • Sex is sacred.  Thus, sexual relationships should be approached with consideration.
  • An ye harm none, do as ye will.  Or in other words; Do your own thing as long as you are not behaving like a horrible person.

As you may have assumed, I finished reading the chapter on Wiccan principles before typing this post.  I believe I have read from the next chapter before.  It is about the fundamental energy tools of grounding, visualization, and and shielding.  I figure it will be good to reread that information.

I hope you are all having a lovely day.  Perhaps somebody else will be inspired to dust off a book and open it.


One thought on “A Day for Reading a Book

  1. I walked 3 miles today… was a bit to cold to go for 6. I caught a Gyarados. I was very lucky because the moment I stepped off the bus to get to a coffee shop (and warm up) it spawned right next to me. So I will be doing less book reading and more audiobook listening along with walking. My sister who lives in New York is flying in tomorrow. I will see if I can get her to walk with me. (She likes long walks too.) Tomorrow is supposed to be warmer in Ann Arbor and parts of the day will be without rain.
