I just wanted to say hello to everyone and introduce myself. my Screen name (Dianthe Liese Shakti) was given to me by another Pagan, the actual name she gave me was too long so I had to shorten it... But anywho, I'm new but I'm not new on the path.I've studied what I could, in secret because of my family being super judgemental and even now. I still hide it somewhat from my Mom because she condemns me to her false hell. I am not Pagan, Wiccan, or any type of religion, though I am spiritual. I also recently found out that my Grand Fathers Mom practiced Benin, which is from West Africa.. Known in America as Voodoo. So I've recently acquired books to learn about it also.
But I'm really here to learn as much as possible from like minded individuals. I do not want to be spoon fed information... I prefer guidance being pointed in the right direction. Or if I misunderstand what I read for it to be sort of cleared up for me... Again Thanks for having me... I have a feeling I will be able to develop more and enjoy myself while doing it here! And I look forward to developing friendships and etc here!
