Hi, I've been on this site for maybe a week now. Sorry for not doing an intro earlier. I'm kind of quiet & keep to myself. My name's Stephanie and I came here because my future husband decided he believes in magic and that this s the path for him. I grew up in a somewhat strict Christian family but I declared myself an Atheist at 5 years old, and have spent most of my life as an Atheist & skeptic. Even though I have had several paranormal experiences, part of my childhood was spent living in a haunted house, and I do have my beliefs, they're just random & varied and don't fit with any other belief system. As I look more at this site though, I can see a lot of stuff that I am interested in, (even if I don't believe in spells or magical powers, please don't kill me!) like healing & crystals and such. I used to be into shamanism some years back, into learning about herbs and natural medicine but fell out of it. I never considered that I might have been more so a follower of a Pagan lifestyle all along than being purely an Atheist. Anyway, I'm eager to learn a lot more.
