First Principle of Belief: All Gods Are One
Energy cannot be created or destroyed. All that exists at the present has always existed. If the Goddess is the source, than all life is one life, all gods and goddesses are one. By whatever name and by whatever gender gods may be recognized, we believe they are one being with many facets, as light that pours through a prism or crystal. Though there appears to be many different lights shining from the crystal, in actuality there is only one.

Second Principle of Belief: The Sacred Law Governs All
We recognize the existence of powers beyond our comprehension at work in the Universe. We believe in balance through Karma, the existence of Fate, and the non-existence of coincidences. Everything happens for a reason. Treat others as you would be treated and the Universe, through the Divine, will provide.

Third Principle of Belief: Ethical Practice and Self Responsibility
It does not matter how one practices their tradition as long as they are ethical in their ways. The true matter lies in why one practices. Power will not be given to those who cannot better their world without the appropriate karmic repercussions. The Universe owes you nothing if you have never given back to the Universe. When expecting a desire to manifest, you should also expect to pay for that desire. All actions have consequences.

Fourth Principle of Belief: Nature as Sacred Guide
We believe that Nature is sacred and the guide through which the lessons of the Goddess are revealed. From the moon, the sun, the stars, the earth, and the entire natural world; we honor the Goddess by honoring Nature.

Fifth Principle of Belief: Betterment of the Mind and the Soul
The mind is vast and powerful. We believe it should be used to learn and to educate others as well. Study is important no matter what the subject. But always remember that knowledge cannot replace imagination. All talents should be embraced and encouraged. Every soul has a greater purpose.

"Imagination is more important than knowledge." - Albert Einstein
