Hello. I'm totally new to Paganism. I've had an interest in it for many, many years. I think it was in the early 90s when late my friend told me of her mother's tarot reading skills. I studied this a little got a handful of books and ended up more confused as they all said different things.
Over the years I've crossed the paths of many people involved in various forms of paganism (mainly wicca) but when I ask them to show me more they change the subject. Again I've been out and bought books and learnt a little but there are many things on which I am, so far, totally clueless.
Meditation, I sit in a quiet room and banish all thoughts. This is as much as I know. I don't know what it should feel like or what I should notice
Raising energy, As above, I don't know if I'm doing it right, if I should feel anything drastic. Should I feel the hair on my arms standing on end or strange tingling, or should I just know.
I'm sure many more questions will follow but this will get me started for now.
