QU’EST-CE QUE LA WICCA?

L'article ci-dessous décrit comment la Wicca s'inspire des anciennes traditions de la sorcellerie. Alors que c'est vrai, nous voudrions simplement préciser que la Sorcellerie et la Wicca, tout en étant similaire à bien des égards, ne sont pas les mêmes. One can be a Witch, sans être un wiccan, tout comme une personne peut être chrétienne, sans être baptiste. Wicca is a recognized religion, alors que la sorcellerie elle-même n'est pas considérée comme une religion. Ainsi, La Wicca pourrait être décrite comme une religion moderne, basé sur d'anciennes traditions de sorcellerie.

Contrairement à ce que veulent croire ceux qui choisissent de persécuter ou de mentir à notre sujet, La Wicca est un endroit très paisible, mode de vie harmonieux et équilibré qui favorise l'unité avec le divin et tout ce qui existe.

La Wicca est une profonde appréciation et admiration pour regarder le lever ou le coucher du soleil, la forêt à la lumière d'une lune rougeoyante, a meadow enchanted by the first light of day. It is the morning dew on the petals of a beautiful flower, la douce caresse d'une douce brise d'été sur votre peau, or the warmth of the summer sun on your face. Wicca is the fall of colorful autumn leaves, and the softness of winter snow. 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 Earths nature and being humbled in reverence. When we 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, un enseignant, un chercheur, un donateur, and a protector of all things. If this path is yours, puisses-tu le parcourir avec honneur, lumière et intégrité.

La Wicca est un système de croyances et un mode de vie basé sur la reconstruction des traditions pré-chrétiennes originaires d'Irlande, Écosse, and Wales. While much of the information of how our ancestors lived, adoré et cru a été perdu en raison des efforts de l'église médiévale pour effacer notre existence de l'histoire, nous essayons de reconstruire ces croyances au mieux de nos capacités avec les informations disponibles.

Grâce aux découvertes archéologiques, we now have basis to believe that the origins of our belief system can be traced even further back to the Paleolithic peoples who worshiped a Hunter God and a Fertility Goddess. With the discovery of these cave paintings, estimé à environ 30,000 ans, représentant un homme à tête de cerf, et une femme enceinte debout en cercle avec onze autres personnes, it can reasonably be assumed that Witchcraft is one of the oldest belief systems known in the world toady. These archetypes are clearly recognized by Wiccan as our view of the Goddess and God aspect of the supreme creative force and predate Christianity by roughly 28,000 années, ce qui en fait un simple bambin dans le spectre du temps tel que nous le connaissons.

La sorcellerie dans l'histoire ancienne était connue sous le nom de « L'artisanat des sages » parce que la plupart de ceux qui suivaient le chemin étaient en harmonie avec les forces de la nature., avait une connaissance des herbes et des médicaments, gave council and were valuable parts of the village and community as Shamanic healers and leaders. They understood that mankind is not superior to nature, la terre et ses créatures, mais au lieu de cela, nous sommes simplement l'une des nombreuses parties, both seen and unseen that combine to make the whole. As Chief Seattle said; « Nous ne possédons pas la terre, we are part of it.” These wise people understood that what we take or use, nous devons rendre en nature pour maintenir l'équilibre et l'équilibre. Clairement, modern man with all his applied learning and technology has forgotten this. Ensuite, nous sommes actuellement confrontés à une catastrophe écologique et à une éventuelle extinction à cause de notre soif de pouvoir et de quelques pièces d'or.

Depuis plusieurs centaines d'années, l'image de la sorcière a été associée à tort au mal, paganisme, and unrighteousness. In my humble opinion, ces idées fausses ont leur origine dans plusieurs endroits différents.

Pour commencer, the medieval church of the 15th through 18th centuries created these myths to convert the followers of the old nature based religions to the churches way of thinking. By making the Witch into a diabolical character and turning the old religious deities into devils and demons, les missionnaires ont pu attacher de la peur à ces croyances qui ont aidé au processus de conversion. en deuxième, alors que la science médicale commençait à faire surface, les hommes qui ont participé à ces études initiales avaient une très mauvaise compréhension de la physiologie féminine, especially in the area of a women’s monthly cycles. The unknowns in this area played very well with the early churches agenda lending credence to the Witch Hunters claims and authority. The fledgling medical professions also stood to benefit greatly from this because it took the power of the women healers away giving it to the male physicians transferring the respect and power to them.

Unfortunately these misinformed fears and superstitions have carried forward through the centuries and remain to this day. This is why many who follow these nature oriented beliefs have adopted the name of Wicca over its true name of Witchcraft to escape the persecution, harcèlement et désinformation associés au nom de Witchcraft and Witch sans parler de la mauvaise publicité que la presse et Hollywood nous ont donnée simplement pour générer un profit.

Qu'est-ce que la sorcellerie:

La sorcellerie est un système spirituel qui favorise la libre pensée et la volonté de l'individu, encourages learning and an understanding of the earth and nature thereby affirming the divinity in all living things. Most importantly however, it teaches responsibility. We accept responsibility for our actions and deeds as clearly a result of the choices we make. We do not blame an exterior entity or being for our shortcomings, weaknesses or mistakes. If we mess up or do something that brings harm to another, we have no one but ourselves to blame and we must face the consequences resulting from those actions. No ifs, des et des mais et pas de pleurnicherie…

Nous reconnaissons les cycles de la nature, the lunar phases and the seasons to celebrate our spirituality and to worship the divine. It is a belief system that allows the Witch to work with, pas en supplication aux divinités avec l'intention de vivre en harmonie et d'atteindre l'équilibre avec toutes choses.

Les sorts que nous faisons impliquent la guérison, l'amour, harmonie, sagesse et créativité. The potions that we stir might be a headache remedy, un tonique froid, or an herbal flea bath for our pets. We strive to gain knowledge of and use the natural remedies placed on this earth by the divine for our benefit instead of using synthetic drugs unless absolutely necessary.

Wiccan croit que l'esprit de l'Un, Goddess and God exist in all things. In the trees, pluie, fleur, la mer, in each other and all of natures creatures. This means that we must treat “all things” of the Earth as aspects of the divine. We attempt to honor and respect life in all its many manifestations both seen and unseen.

Wiccan apprendre et vénérer le don de la nature de la création divine en célébrant les cycles du soleil, moon and seasons. We search within ourselves for the cycles that correspond to those of the natural world and try to live in harmony with the movement of this universal energy. Our teachers are the trees, Rivières, lacs, prairies, mountains and animals as well as others who have walked this path before us. This belief creates a reverence and respect for the environment, et toute vie sur Terre.

Nous vénérons également les esprits des éléments de la Terre, Air, Fire and Water which combine to manifest all creation. From these four elements we obtain insight to the rhythms of nature and understand they are also the rhythms of our own lives.

Parce que les sorcières ont été persécutées pendant tant de siècles, nous croyons d'abord à la liberté religieuse! We do not look at our path as the only way to achieve spirituality, but as one path among many to the same end. We are not a missionary religion out to convert new members to think the same as we do. We are willing to share our experience and knowledge with those who seek our wisdom and perspective however. We believe that anyone who is meant for this path will find it through their own search as the Goddess speaks to each of us in her time and way. Wiccan practice tolerance and acceptance toward all other religions as long as those faiths do not persecute others or violate the tenant of “Harm None.”

Ce que la sorcellerie n'est pas:

More information about Witchcraft is available in the Frequently Asked Questions section, mais en attendant, voici les points principaux.

Witchcraft or Wicca is not a cult. We do not proclaim ourselves to be spokespersons for the divine or try to get others to follow us as their leaders.
We do not worship Satan or consort with Demons. Satan is a Christian creation and they can keep him. We do not need a paranoid creation of supreme evil and eternal damnation to scare us into doing the right thing and helping others. We choose to do the right thing and love our brothers and sisters because it IS the right thing and it feels good to do it. I suppose it is a maturity thing.
We do not sacrifice animals or humans because that would violate our basic tenant of “Harm None.” Anyone who does and claims to be a Wiccan or a Witch is lying.
We have no need to steal or control the life force of another to achieve mystical or supernatural powers. We draw our energy from within, notre relation personnelle avec le divin et la nature.
We do not use the forces of nature or the universe to hex or cast spells on others. De nouveau, « Préjudice Aucun » est l’ensemble de la loi.

Witches have a very strict belief in the Law of Three which states that whatever we send out into our world shall return to us three fold either good or bane. With this in mind, une "Vraie Sorcière" hésiterait à faire de la magie pour blesser ou manipuler une autre parce que ce boomerang que nous lançons finira par nous revenir beaucoup plus gros et plus fort que lorsque nous l'avons lancé.

Cela ne veut pas dire que les sorcières sont parfaites, we are human too just like everyone else and make mistakes and errors in judgment. Just as there are parents who love and nurture their children, there are parents who abuse their children. As there are many who devote their lives to giving and helping mankind, likewise there are those who devote their lives to taking advantage of and using people for their own gain. Unfortunately the same flaws in human nature applies to witches too.

La plupart d’entre nous s’efforcent continuellement de considérer tous les résultats potentiels de nos pensées et actions en s’arrêtant pour envisager sérieusement les conséquences avant d’entreprendre un rituel, spell or rite that could go astray. It is when we follow the path with the love of the Goddess in our hearts and adhere to the basic tenant of the Reed that our works are beneficial and we achieve harmony and balance with all things.

The heart of Wicca is not something summed up into a few short words and can often take on different meaning to each since the Lord and Lady touch us in different ways. To gain a fuller understanding of the Craft, I urge you visit the other pages on this site as well as following the links to a select group of exceptional Wiccan and Witchcraft sites. Through the wisdom and words set down through the ages, you will find that you are able to understand the basis of our beliefs and how they may apply to you. Your inner voice will also quickly let you know if the intent of what you are reading is for superficial purposes to benefit self instead of working to benefit the whole. Remember to read with your heart, car c’est quand vous voyez la vie et le monde avec votre cœur et votre esprit que vous comprenez vraiment ce qu’est la Wicca.

Béni soit!
