Sacred Balance: Wicca Spirituality Energy Exchange
If you follow Wicca Spirituality on FB or Twitter, you've seen the previews of the Wiccan Way.

At last, here it is in final form!

What is it? How did it come about?

Well, it started with the long version of the Wiccan Rede. That's a collection of tips (sort of) on Wicca and magick.

But there were a lot of things I felt were missing from the Rede -- specifically, the more spiritual aspects of Wicca. So I wanted to add these elements, since in my opinion the spirituality is the most important part!

Page copy protected against web site content infringement by Copyscape Taken together with the Rede, the Three-Fold Law, and the Charge Of The Star Goddess, I think it gives a very complete outline for anyone who wants to know what Wicca Spirituality is really about.

The Wiccan Way
~ by erin Dragonsong © 2009

I keep this wisdom as I may

To follow in the Wiccan Way

The Wiccan Rede — the vital one:

Do as I will, an it harm none

Following my Inner Light,

I do that which I deem right

The Silver Rule I shall sustain:

My heart shall lead; my soul shall reign

With loving care I heed and tend

My body: Temple, Guide, and friend

I'll study well a year and day

Apply the wisdom of the fey,

Attend all that the Earth proclaims

Ere a Wiccan I be named

Though all for naught, unless I see

The Pentacle inside of me!

My subtle sense I cultivate

For energies that emanate

I trust the Voice inside that knows

What eyes may miss but Goddess shows

Four Powers of the Witch fulfill:

Know, Will, Dare, and then Be Still

The font of my authority

Is earnest authenticity

With and through my thoughts and speech

Into action I must reach

For Wicca is a living art

In every day, in every part

Nature is my Temple free

The Earth and Winds, the Sun and Sea

The Moon I bless as Goddess' throne

Being Maiden, Mother, Crone

I meet the Days and greet the Nights

With joy and thanks for all delights

I dance the seasons' spiral round

Til wondrous awe and love abound

That Earth is Heaven, 'tis a fact

Hell is made by human act

The God as son, lover, king --

His life to serve, yes, everything

I honour in my heart the arc

Of Divine Light and Sacred Dark

'Tis by the Sun that life be won,

And by the Moon that change be done

So I fear not the door of death

Where life continues beyond breath

Nothing lacking, nothing lost

All lives within that I love most

God and Goddess, all are One

Beyond the Moon, beyond the Sun

For that Divinity to know

These qualities I'll seek to grow:

Loving Kindness, Harmony,

Creation, Generosity,

Self-awareness, Presence, Bliss,

Beauty, Oneness — Goddess is

Hence self-righteousness is fraud;

None can stand 'twixt one and God

To Her, emotions point the way:

Am I on track or gone astray?

For as I live with least of strife

I free myself, and bless all Life

The Gods need us, as we need them:

To learn, to grow, to live again

My deepest dreams--Divine decree--

Reveal what Goddess wants of me

I think, I say; so life will go

For good or ill, for high or low

And my ideals are treasured maps

To guard me from fear's subtle traps

What I send out will be returned

That life's true lessons may be learned

Love and hate bind equally

Their targets tightly unto me

Anger makes a poison cup

And none but fools would drink it up

For enemies prove in the end

To be my soul's most valiant friends

When I wish to be more blessed

I rejoice in folks' success

For anything I wish to find

Is summoned when I give in kind

By my actions be I known

Regardless what I'd like be shown

Be kind to all; give all I can

Thus tend the Balance life demands

The Goddess blesses those who aid

All the children She has made

Furred and feathered, leafed and scaled:

Thus Divinity is veiled

Respect and peace in mind and heart

Strengthen me in Magick Art

Serving Life empowers me

Above, below, and three times three

I'll achieve all I desire

As ego burns in sacred fire

Magick is the means of Life

And Goddess is its Source and Knife

This birthright passes unto me:

As I do will, so mote it be…

From countless choice, one I distill

With clear intent and strength of will;

Passions fuel and charge the spell,

Then in the Void I plant it well:

Know that it is One with me

And soon in life so it must be.

To purify the path to will,

I practice that my mind be still;

What good be Craft without true sight?

No good is done without this Light!

Because I choose this sacred Way

By this measure all I'll weigh:

As wise as snake, as soft as dove

I'll know myself, and live in love

Forever will I heed the call:

Serve blesséd Earth, and be the All.

With Brightest Blessings,
