|Hail! I am Ciarrai, and I've been studying the occult since I was a wee lad. It all started with Astrology, and blossomed into much more over the years. I am not on any particular path, but I'm currently working with local Heathens in my area and am learning the Northern Mysteries. I'm concentrating on the Runes of the Elder Futhark at the moment, as well as getting to know the Aesir, Vanir, Wights and ancestors. Thor has been with me all my life, for I was born on his day, he is the namesake of my Norwegian ancestors (Torvestad, or house of Thor), and our strikingly similar childhoods of being subject to bouts of uncontrolled rage only to master them by adulthoood. While I have been studying Heathenry, I wouldn't call myself a Heathen. I have also studied Wicca, and to a lesser extent (though I plan to fix that) the Celtic Druid tradition. I've always been more hesitant to start practicing magick, as I feel it is not something to use until better understanding and knowledge is gained. I understand that magick is not something to be trifled with, and take it very seriously.
As for my personal life, I'm happily married for 5 years now. I have always worked in the culinary field, and currently I'm assisting a local bean to bar chocolatier for my work. I am very blessed that I grew up with such a wonderful mother, she has her Master's Degree in creation spirituality, is a Reiki Master, and a serious student of Astrology. She initiated me in Reiki as a child and am going to complete levels 2 and 3 when I see her next, and according to her I'm a natural healer. My studies have been on again and off again since I was young, and as of late I've had a call to really concentrate on my spiritual development. I'll be the first to admit I'm still very ignorant on many of the deeper, less frivolous aspects to magic and spirituality and hope to gain insight with knowledgeable members, and share what I know as well.
I'm interested in learning: Seidr, Galdr, Astral Projection/Shamanic work, energy work, magic in general, Lucid Dreaming, and much more! I'm in pursuit of knowledge and wisdom.
