My mother follows both Pagan and Wicca beliefs. She's raised me with those beliefs since I was probably in the middle of elementary school. Now, about three years ago my parents split and I stayed with my dad. I got a stepmom in a matter of a few months. This stepmom viewed the my beliefs as a "taboo" and took my witch "privileges" away. So, I have not been able to keep an active life acting upon my beliefs.
Well, the reason I am excited is... I'm moving in with my mom in a matter of days. I will be getting my "privileges" back.
I do have a few worries though. After not been being connected for so long, will it be hard to reconnect? Especially if I have changed as a person.
Not at all, in-fact you will find that many of the stuff you think you forgot will come back again. Magick is not something you can simply "forget", even though you may think so. By the way, congratulations on you going back to your mother's house!
Congradulations dear! Life should be much easier now that the step mom is out of the picture, well this aspect. Magick, since you have been away from it, my be eager to get you back, and as such will expand your learning faster ;).
Wicca, Magick and Paganisn are like riding a bike. You will never loose the connection, the power and even if you get a little rusty on the knowledge you will be able to find wonderful resources that will help you on your way.
Magick is wonderful like that, it senses our intentions and send our energies into the universe to attract whatever it is that we want.
Make sure you get a good book of shadows and journal to document you progress.
I feel a lot more comfortable knowing that my connection hasn't been lost because of things I've forgotten. And, I can't wait to reconnect!
My first step to get back with myself was to get a book of shadows. :)
We can never go "back." We are where we are, and from what you said of your mom, she already knows that, and will help you along in whatever you do. It's great that you are excited! Enjoy the opportunities. Cheers.
