I'm new on the site, but have practiced more than half my life. If you are curious as to what I practice, I would define myself as a irreverent Druid. I'm not a devoutly religious person, and my castings are rarely invoked with assistance from my gods. Do I acknowledge them, yes, do I pray to them, occasionally, do I think my power is a gift from them, hell no. Gods demons and other spirit beings are never black and white versions of good or evil in my experience, always a shade of gray.
I started out in a pretty standard way, trying tarot cards and ouiji boards for fun. Then my tarot readings became a little too accurate for people to deal with. Suddenly my friends were scared to be around me, convinced themselves I was faking it and had been spying on them. So I clammed up and practiced without others. From tarot I shifted to runes, from runes to stars, and from stars to auras, I'm very alert and aware of things that occur to or around people I speak to. If you want examples I have several, if you think I'm a fraud then go fly a kite, and if you want my knowledge, earn my friendship.
