I have been a practicing witch since 2011. I was 13 then. I had just suffered from extreme abuse from my brother and needed an outlet, and that was when I got deeply rooted in the Old Gods. My favorites were the Eastern religions. I liked the idea of reincarnation and interconnectivity of everything and everyone. Then I actually began to pray to them. First, I only prayed to Kali. Then She introduced me to Shiva and Ganesh. As I continued down my path I eventually became deeply involved in Satanism and that is where I stand to this day. I have been a Satanist (officially) since i was 15. I dedicated my soul to him wholly.
