Information on finding your path and sticking to it.

"Can you help me find my religion?"

This is a very common question. People are unsure of what path to take and how to find the information needed to make that decision. Almost everyone has been there and can sympathize, but choosing a path to follow is a very personal thing. This is a choice that only the person in question can take.

With that said, here's a guide on how to make that decision:

1. Decide what sort of things you are looking for in a religion.

Does polytheism appeal to you? Do you believe in Faeries? Do you want a strict moral code or are you hoping for something a bit more lenient? Figure out what things would be important for your religion to have, and keep those things in mind when you go on to the next step.

2. Research.

Google lists of religions, and then google the ones that seem interesting. Read a little about different religions, to expand your knowledge and to get a feeling for the religion. When you find one that calls to you, you're ready to move on to the next step.

3. Commit to your path.

Be ready to read books, meditate, take notes, memorize the names of various deities, etc. Be prepared for the things that your religion calls for.

If you can't find a path that feels right to you, worry not. There are people who combine two religions; people that take bits from dozens of various traditions; or people that even practice things that no one else does. There are people who simply call themselves pagan, and practice many different neo-pagan beliefs. There are wiccans who view the Triple Moon Goddess and Horned God as symbolic, and some who view them as real and literal. There are even witches who worship no deity and view magick as their religion.

The point here is, there are many options out there. It might take some time, but you'll find what you're looking for.
