While Unverifiable Personal Gnosis is a significant part of Wicca, it is also important in many other religions and spiritual practices. When I was a practicing Christian, specifically Roman Catholic, I had many moments of epiphany that other Christians did not and would never resonate with, one of which was the moment when Mary, the Virgin Mother of God, spoke to me during an intense moment of prayer revealing to me her true nature. It was epiphanies such as this that ultimately led me away from Christianity and onto my current Wiccan path.
I believe that Wicca is as verifiable as Christianity is, though I am acutely aware that many others will disagree with me, claiming that there are historical accounts within The Bible and other texts that Jesus Christ did exist and is the prophesized Messiah. While it may be true that Wicca has no sacred book to consult when we have questions, nor a holy text to check for verification of a spiritual belief, what we do have is shared experiences and unverifiable personal gnosis. And if you are a person who does follow a religion with such reference material as The Holy Scriptures, how do you come to the belief that the sacred book or holy text that you readily consult is indeed the inspired Word of God? Isn’t that unverifiable? Is it not through personal gnosis that you gain this understanding?
For myself I find that I am able to verify my Wiccan beliefs, truths, and reality to my satisfaction by communing with the natural world around me. There I am able to witness the beauty of the sacred feminine in all her magnificent flora and greenery. I am able to feel the power of the sacred masculine in the weather and natural forces of the Universe that surround me. I can observe the cycle of life that dictates the path of all living beings that inhabit the Earth with me. Because I believe that Wicca is based in the understanding of the life cycle as I experience it, it is based in the reality I manifest for myself and the reality I create with others of like mind. It is the truth that I live each day here on the physical plane of Earth that we, you and I, have co-created. I come to these conclusions through unverifiable personal gnosis just as you have come to your beliefs through your own communion with Deity.
