The Bible tells your to mediate.it also speaks of advisors of kings who had "dreams". GOD gave use all a special gift it is up to us how we utilize. Before modern medicine, herbs were the main source of healing. Do what feels comfortable to you, your conscious won't allow you to against your core beliefs.m

first i just wanted to say that these are two different system,meaning how things work are totally different,meaning you can't really combine them,God system is operated by the word of God and faith,obeying plays a huge part in it too. when you operate in God system it leaves nothing to be desire, whatever you need/want can be receive by God system, remember what Jesus said if you desire anything ask in my name and it will be given to you. (john 14:13)God requires us to serve him with the hold heart,which means no other gods,not asking them for help or anything,but ask him pray to him only,next is meditation,we should meditate on the word of God,by reading God word slowly to grab the meaning,and repeating the verus,study it closely,ask God to help you understand the word before you start reading,it helps to hear yourself speaking the word of God aloud,when operating in God system you don't need spells, well hope this helped feel free to message me

Just choose what is right for you. everybody hits this wall for some faith or another and has to decide what feels right to them. do research on everything you can get your hands on then decide. who knows maybe neither work and you end up in a much older or newer faith.

I view all religions as following a higher power and we all may call that power different names under differing religions, but it is the same entity just different aspects of the higher source. If we look beyond the twists and turns all religions have put on the truth it is a miracle we can talk to and get responses from any deity. I know in my heart that God/Goddess is just an aspect of the same Power christians, buddists, moslems, jews,etc. worship. The trouble is christianity took the feminine aspect out of the religion because it scared the male dominated world at the time. Thats my 2 cents worth.

Honestly you can do both without stretching too far out of your faith. Gnostic and esoteric really embrace both magick and the Christian path. Kabbala is a excellent example of one path to go down especially with Jewish and Hebrew traditions. It honestly gets into duality and shows where "God" is both masculine and feminine. Like the "holy spirit " is often related to the feminine side of the divine. Just food for thought.

I know what you're going through, I believed in the holy trinity and accepted god, but i also practiced magic for it says nothing of magic in the new testament. But when people asked of my beliefs and i responded "I'ma trinitarian wiccan" most Christians would lecture and lecture about the evils of magic and how there are only 2 kinds of miracles(1s from god and 1s to deceive from the devil). I am very acceptive in peoples beliefs, but after many Christians lectures and quotes from the old testament i didn't like the idea of being apart of a religion with so many judgmental people. So i decided to take my path as a Wiccan. And i occasional pray to God and his angels. Since then I've never looked back, i love the freedom. I love the idea that only peace waits for everyone when we die.
... No they don't. True, when combining Wicca and Christianity you will end up with a new religion that is unlike either, but there is no reason under the sun why they must choose one or the other.
You can combine Wicca and Christianity just fine, you just need to acknowledge that the new religion you create will be neither Wicca nor Christianity, just related. This is not terribly different than how the Baha'i Faith, what is essentially a combination of Buddhism and Islam, is made from both but is its own religion, not Islam or Buddhism.
