A Wiccan Creation Myth
Long, long ago the universe slept in the arms of a dark void. From this place of nothingness, The Divine drew together and created the Goddess of infinite love. The Goddess danced among the heavens, her feet beating out the rhythm of all creation. Sparks of light catapulted from her hair giving birth to the stars and the planets. As she twirled these heavenly bodies began to move with her in the divine symphony of the universe. When her dancing quickened she formed the seas and the mountains of the Earth as her feet made the lands of the Earth. She chanted words of love and joy, and as these sounds fell to the Earth, the beautiful trees and flowers were created. From the pure, white light of her breath came the colours of the universe, turning all things into vibrant beauty. From the bubbling laughter in her throat sprang the sounds of the pristine running water of the streams, the gentle lapping vibrations of the lakes and the roaring screams of the oceans. Her tears of joy became the refreshing rains of the Earth’s survival.
And when her dancing slowed, the Goddess sought a companion to share the wonders of her world, the Divine created the God as her life mate and her companion. Because she so loved the Earth, the Divine made her companion half Divine and half animal, so that together they could populate the planet. The God’s power moved through her, and she showers the Earth and all upon it with her blessing. Together the God and the Goddess gave birth to the birds, animals, fishes and the people of the world. To protect and guides the humans the God and Goddess made the angels, and the animal spirits. These energies walked with them always, though the humans could not see them. To each bird the Goddess gave magick song, and the each animal the God bestowed the instinct to survive. The God is the master of the animal and vegetable kingdoms; therefore he wears the antlers of a stag crowning his great head. This aspect of half man, half animal shows his joy in both the human and animal creations of the Divine, and he revels in this image.
As the humans began to grow and prosper, The God and Goddess saw the need for healers among their own kinds. And so they drew forth energy from the realm of the angels, the realm of the animal spirits, and the realm of the humans to create the Witches. The Witches brought with them the wisdom of the Goddess as God, the ability to heal and the art of magick. The Goddess taught the Witches how to cast a magick circle and talk to the Divine. The God taught the Witches how to communicate with the elements of Air, Fire, Water, Earth and spirit, and how to commune with the animal and plant kingdoms.
At first, the humans accepted the Witches, and treated them fairly; but because the Witches were different, other humans began to fear the Wise Ones of the Goddess and the God. Thus the Witches became the Hidden Children, conducting their rites of positive energy in secret lest they risk capture and death at the hands of the fearful humans.
As the world grew darker with ignorance and hate of human creation, the Goddess took the body of the moon to represent the gentle light of her perfect peace. The God took the form of the sun as his symbol of strength in perfect love. And once a month when the moon is full, the Witches celebrate the blessing of their mother had bestowed upon them. They call forth her energy to help them take care of themselves, their families, their friends and their planet. Four times a year, as the sun cycles through the seasons, the Witches celebrate the festivals of fire and honour the God and his love for them. At the four quarters of the seasons, as the Witches honour the cycle of life and the gifts of the Earth.
The Goddess has many names - Nyx, Isis, Diana, Aradia and thousand more – and the Goddess walks within and beside each woman of every race. The God also has many faces – Erebus, Cernunnos, Pan, Zeus and as the Goddess there are thousand more faces of the God as well. He guards and guides everyone and resides in each man of every race. When thunder roars in the heavens and lightening cracks from the grounds, the Goddess and God dance the Divine myth of creation so that the Witches may remember them and know that they are never alone. When the sun rises each morning, they bask in the joy of his love for them, and when the moon moves through her phases, they understand the cycle of birth, growth, death and rebirth, as is the nature of human kind.
When it is their time, the Witches enter the Summerland. From the Divine that moves and flows through the Goddess and God, they continue to learn the mysticism of the universe so that they may return, life after life, to serve their brothers and sisters. In each lifetime the Divine guides them through leaning experiences, preparing them along the way for their individual missions. Sometimes they are born among their own kind, and in other instances they must seek out their spiritual family. Many of them do not remember their hosen path until they reach adulthood. Though others, from time to time, they form their own thoughts and know instinctively of their heritage.
They are the Witches, the representatives of wisdom’s growth on the beautiful planet. They are the Hidden Children, back from the dead. They are the People, the power, the change – and they have incarnated in every race and every culture. They are the angels of the Earth.
