Keeping silent may be the hardest bit about Witchcraft, especially if you’re the chatty blogging sort. However, as you mature in your practice, silence can be a relief, a welcoming thing.
Last night I attended esbat for the May moon. From the outside looking in, everything went fairly smoothly and was pretty normal for an esbat. Ritual was lovely, weather was warm and people were just friendly and amazing. However, I had an unexpected spiritual experience.
No, dear reader, I have no desire to tell you about it because it is personal to me. To talk about it would scatter it’s energy uselessly. There’s no expectation of testimony in the Craft and that is such a relief. Quakers and Pentecostals feel they must speak when moved by Spirit, but Witches mull their experiences in silence for a good while before, or if, sharing them.
While silence may be somewhat unique to us, the joy of a spiritual event is not. May your journey be full of joyful revelation and deep mysteries.
