Paths
By:
Post # 1
I'm still new to Magick, but have read up on Wicca & Pagans, but am not sure which way to go. Do I have to choose a specific path and follow it? Or can I go down my own path and find my own way of doing things?

I've read quite a lot about the different paths and feel like I need just a little bit of advice on how to find myself.

Thanks!

Magic is not taught from a textbook, you must understand the magic itself, feel it, know the will of the universe and the goddess, can your spell change fate? For better or for worse? When in doubt about what path to take, soulsearch, meditate, contemplate. There is no set way, yes there is training, but it all comes down to how you want to learn magic.

Wicca and Paganism aren't the only paths. here are literally thousands of different kinds of paths you can take.

A lot of people put a few different paths together to make one. An example of this is Paganism, and Norse Heathenism.

For me, it took me nearly eight years to find my true path, and I just did what I felt was right. So my advice to you, is to trust your intuition, and follow your heart.

Good luck.

Thank you - both of you - I knew it would take time to find the right one, I'll keep looking into it and will hopefully find where I want to go eventually.

not saying that you have to choose this one path, but it's a good starting point.
Shamanism.
shamanism is not the same as wicca or paganism, it has themes from both but relies less on the mercy of god/gods and more on herbs to heal. You still pray, but live a lifestyle much more in harmony with nature. Not setting out a path for you or anything, just saying, it's there as a good place to start looking.

Thank you, I had seen discussions about it but hadn't looked into it yet. Will have a look now!

It isn't mandatory to choose a path and go with it, you may continue with your own path/religion and still practise magick. There are no restrictions in magick regarding paths. Hence, you may continue with your own path or if you feel like choosing a specific path, go for what you like.
You may also take up and derive certain practises and workings from different paths, in which case you may call yourself "eclectic". In the whole sense, it's a personal preferance!

Well at the moment I don't have a religion or anything like that. I think I'd rather be eclectic, taking things from all different places sounds like the one for me, at least for now anyway..

For a long time, I didn't follow anything at all. I still do not follow any specific path. I've been a solitary witch ever since I started the craft. Everyone has their own touch and own way of believing. Eventually, you'll find a path that jumps out at you.

Yeah, I understand what you mean :) I think for now I'm gonna take the eclectic route and do what fits with me then one day, hopefully, something'll jump out at me!
