Wicca: Breaking down Paganism

By Mavis Brown

Contrary to what those who choose to persecute or lie about Wiccans wish to believe, Wicca is a very peaceful, harmonious and balanced way of life which promotes oneness with nature and all which exists.

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. It is light and shadow and all that lies in between.  It is the song of the birds and other creatures of the wild.  It is being in the presence of Mother Earth’s nature and being humbled in reverence. When Wiccans are in the temple of the Lord and Lady, we are not prone to the arrogance of human technology as they touch our souls. To be a Witch is to be a healer, a teacher, a seeker, a giver, and a protector of all things.   If this path is yours, may you walk it with honor, light and integrity.

Wicca is a belief system and way of life based upon the reconstruction of pre-Christian traditions originating in Ireland, Scotland, and Wales.  While much of the information of how our ancestors lived, worshiped and believed has been lost due to the efforts of the medieval church to wipe the Wiccan existence from history, we try to reconstruct those beliefs to the best of our ability with the information that is available.

Thanks to archaeological discoveries, they now have basis to believe that the origins of the Wiccan belief system can be traced even further back to the Paleolithic peoples who worshipped a Hunter God and a Fertility Goddess.  With the discovery of these cave paintings, estimated to be around 30,000 years old, depicting a man with the head of a stag, and a pregnant woman standing in a circle with eleven other people, it can reasonably be assumed that Witchcraft is one of the oldest belief systems known in the world toady.
