Witch After Wiccan: Help
By:
Post # 1
Blessings,

So, this is a topic I really would like feedback for. Please read and try to understand.

For a while, I've considered myself as a Wiccan. In my time exploring Wicca, I never really felt like polytheism was right for me. For me, polytheism is too broad to go by. I see the pantheons and different god/dess personas as different faces of the same Divine mystery or being, whatever it is. But, I've gotten interested into the science of the universe and now I'm starting to view the existence of a higher being as nothing existing at all. I'm leaning towards agnostic. As much as I do like some Wiccan concepts, at this point in my life I feel that it is too hard to believe in any interpersonal being(s). I also cherish the spirituality witchcraft offers. The lifestyle is something I never want to leave me. I have been studying all of this officially for nine years, but I'm in my times of spiritual doubt.

This is the question: how does one develop a 110% pantheist approach to witchcraft? How does one USE witchcraft in itself to explore and find better suited beliefs for their self? I know the choice of what I believe is for me to create on my own. I just need help in understanding how to work with this new idea of exploring my spirit through just witchcraft that isn't attached to much religion.

I hope this all makes sense. Thanks for your time.

Witchcraft has nothing to do with religion! There are many devout Christians, Muslims, and others. who practise witchcraft. One of the great English alchemists, and a true witch, was Sir Isaac Newton; he did a lot more than just discover Gravity! And he was a most devout Christian.
Witchcraft is the experimenting, and use of, magic. I could show you magic; but nobody has ever seen a God!

In my experience, I've found it's best to not worry about the Dione dude of tgibgs. Your beliefs will form with your continuing work within witchcraft. A concept which was very difficult for me to grasp was the concept if no divinity existing in witchcraft, but in the Traditional Craft only the Devil is recognized, and the Devik isn't even a divine being, but nature. Nature is the Devil. Basically, revere all of nature, the grotesque, nasty, and nauseating included, and you'll begin to recognize your own divinity. (Keep in mind this is just my view. So e view the Devil as the actual Christian Satan)

Thanks for the replies.

I couldn't see it as the Christian Devil. I personally don't believe in that concept.

Oh no, I was just stating something I do as an example XD basically it's best to flesh it out on your own how you feel about divinity and whatnot.

It is okay to change aspects, that is why your you. With that note, religion is varied in terms of practices. Christians, state it's evil, Catholics, state it's a sin, Muslims state, It's dishonouring the community, ect. Witchcraft is not followed in all religions. If you feel more connected to witchcraft, then do so. If your still in love with wicca, keep at it. Either or, you have a choice.

Live your life the way you see fit. I had a teacher who was Catholic but agreed with and followed many Buddhist teachings. You can be an atheist and still be a witch, witchcraft is used as a foundation by many. 'true Wicca' combines masculine and feminine energies, hence the God and Goddess. I believe you would be called 'Eclectic' but you could still follow some Wiccan teachings [though witchcraft is probably the better path]

Regarding how can you be 110% sure, you can't. Everyone from Atheist to Zoroastrian looks at what they've discovered and draw their own spiritual conclusions. No one is right and no one is wrong because there is no 100% proof. Whether we go to heaven/hell, reincarnate, or simply end, we can't tell for certain until we die. Do your best to live and whatever the outcome you won't regret the life you lived. [Of course if we do just end and there is no afterlife you can't regret, but you get my point]
