Living Wicca
 
 
Wicca is not just magick, it is a life-style. Some of the simplest rituals to honor the Lady and the Lord are actions we take in our day to day lives.
 
Try to take at least 5 minutes every day to have a sacred time with the Lady and Lord. Here are some suggestions for bringing Wiccan ethics into your daily life. These are only suggestions. Use common sense and don't take on more than you can comfortably stick with. A little done consistently is better than taking on a lot all at once and then dropping it all as being "too much".
 
1.   Make an offering everyday to the goddess and god.
2.   Do morning and/or evening meditations.
3.   Do morning and evening "prayers" and giving of thanks to the goddess and god.
4.   Work on arts and crafts with a Wiccan theme.
5.   Listen to classical or contemporary Pagan music.
6.   Tend to or plant flowers and plants.
7.   Volunteer some of your free time to a good cause.
8.   Recycle.
9.   Keep a journal of your involvement in the Wiccan Path.
10.  Correspond with other Pagans or Wiccans.
11.  Meditate using stones.
12.  Write your own rituals.
13.  Experiment with different divination tools.
14.  Visit gardens and local parks. While there try to clean up any litter you may see.
15.  Listen to and communicate with animals.
 
 
What makes someone a Witch?
 
It is not sufficient to say you are a "witch" or to practice magick. You must also live as a witch.

Do not look for excuses for why you cannot follow the path. Accept responsibility for your failures as well as your successes.

Celebrate the phases of the Moon and the changing of seasons. Do so not because it is part of a ritual calendar, but rather because these acts keep you in tune with Nature and Spirit.

Honor Spirit or the Goddess, but recognize that the spirits of all entities in the Universe are equal.

All life is sacred; all acts are ritual. Your actions should reflect your own divinity and that of all beings.

Achieving balance with the Earth is essential for a magickal life.

Responsibility toward the environment and the Earth's inhabitants should be evident in the activities of your daily life.

Do not take more from the Earth than you need to live. We are mere visitors here; the Earth is eternal.

Wealth and fame are not necessary ingredients for a magickal life.

Know that the joy of life is a gift. Know it as a cat knows it, in his bones and blood.

Power is a sacred gift and must be used wisely and with humility. Pride in ones power will ultimately cause failure.

Power should never be used to prove your ability or in any form of competition with others.

Power should be used to create happiness, not sorrow.

Be certain of your intentions when performing any act of magick. Magick is neither good nor evil, positive nor negative. The intentions of the magician determine the path it will take.

Act always with honor and accept responsibility for your actions. It is honorable to protect your loved ones, but be willing to accept the consequences of your actions with honor as well.

Words are sacred, use them wisely.

There is honor in truth.

Your word is sacred. Others must know that they can depend on you absolutely.

Learn to forgive yourself and others.

Knowledge is the foundation of the Craft. Never believe that you know enough.

Teach those who truly wish to learn, but take care that you do not teach those who only wish to serve themselves or harm others.

Teach the Craft with pride, but not to enhance your own pride.

Recognize that even the least knowledgeable of students may offer you lessons you need.

Live your life in a way that is above reproach to the rest of the world. In doing so, you will bring honor to all witches.

Do not be drawn into the feelings of hate and anger expressed by others.

Be able to look into a mirror and be truly unafraid.
