Hello, I am Holly,I am just starting my Wicca path and have a strong love of nature. I was partially raised in a Pagan home as my dad was a practising witch until I was about 8 or 9yrs of age. Although I continued within the Christian church until the age of 17 ( I am 19 now) I didn't feel comfortable anymore with the church. I discovered Greek Reconstruction and decided to try my hand at this path, but for me it only led to a dead end. I have researched into other Pagan paths and although hesitant ( I found Wicca to be too new due to it's starting in 1952) I decided to research Wicca. What I discovered is that it is simply the old religion brought into the modern world as with most neo-paganism. This being said for the past 2 days ( Yes I really am THAT new!) It has hit me in ways I have never felt before, I had cleansed all my dad's former tools with the goddess candle, and after wards all I felt was pure happiness in an energy I have never felt before in my life. I will admit, although I have cast a circle of protection around me for personal tarot readings I have not done any witchcraft as of yet, but it does interest me immensely. Anyway, I would thoroughly appreciate any messages helping me in any way you feel possible, I also love to discuss Wicca and/or witchcraft.

Merry Meet and welcome. Although my beliefs are a little different, I am mostly Wiccan and Native American Shaman (looking up my ancestors as I am part Abenaki and have had shamanic experiences).

Greetings, I have also found it difficult to define a path as I always found fundament things I disagreed with in every religion. Magick can just be a means to an end but for me there's also a spiritual path to follow. Might I be so bold as to suggest eclectic paganism if you're looking for something a little more flexible.
