I am just learning how to use this website, and I have a lot to learn. I like to help people when I can, but I tend to keep to myself. I am a very compassionate and sensitive man.I like most animals and respect them, but I do not like snakes and spiders very much. I feel the same way about people, and I respect people. I am fairly intelligent, but I earned my G.E.D instead of a High School diploma. I attended a local College of Wicca from June 2007-October 2009, when the college closed for good. All of my classmates and teachers went their own ways, and I never heard from them again. One very cold January day, my class went to a local Wildlife Preserve to check it out. We went on a bus tour, and the weather was bitterly cold. We were able to see some animals, especially a small herd of Bison. Then, another warm February day,my class/coven got together for an Imbolc ritual. During the ritual, we shook jars of cream until they became butter. We would always have knowledge quizzes to win prizes and cool items.I really loved attending my classes until the school closed in 2009. Since then I have been solitary, attending rituals with a good friend when I can. I once went to a "Drawing Down of the Sun", which was quite an experience. One of the priests channeled one of the Old gods. Another time, I attended a "Drawing Down of the Moon", and that was also quite an experience. I used to have a friend who was a High Priestess,but I have not spoken to her in quite a while. I do not know if we are still friends or not. I have another friend who is also a High Priestess, but I have not heard from her in a while either. I do not have many Witch friends at all, and I really hope to make more. I would love to attend another college of Wicca; perhaps online. Transportation is a big problem for me, and I would need to find a local Wiccan College or something. Tuition is also a problem. I was never even able to take my "Year and a Day" studying period yet. I am a huge fan of Science-Fiction, and I have been for my entire life. I know a few spells that I use often, but I seldom attend rituals. I am not sure that I fit in with the Universe of Witchcraft. I am also the only non-Christian in my entire family; surrounded by Christians and near a Lutheran church. My mother is also a Lutheran, but she tries to support me and my non-Christian ways. I am not sure that I belong with the Christians either. I guess that I really am kind-of lost after all. I am seeking Spiritual Enlightenment, trying to open and activate my Chakras. I seldom have the chance and the time to meditate, however. I probably need a little help with that. I do not know who to turn to about that.My mother knows very little about such things and I never hear back from my local friends. I just do not know what to do. If anybody has any suggestions, please let me know.
