Personal Bio

"Two roads diverged in a wood, and II took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference."

Robert Frost

Hi everyone! Just call me Pathless. I'm a pagan and beginner witch, looking to learn more about the craft.

I bit about me: I'm 16 years old, and I've always been interested in alternative healing methods (especially Eastern medicine and acupuncture). Before finding Wicca, I explored Buddhism, Hinduism, Taoism, and nonreligious spirituality. I was also interested in the hippie movement and still agree with most of its ideals.

About my username. My whole life, I've grown up with a path in front of me, paved by my parents. Get good grades, go to college, get a stable job in STEM, pass it on to your kids. But recently, I've begun to see this path as less of a predestined life and more of a game. The competition for college can be stressful, but not if you see it as a game. Is there an incentive to "win?" Yes. Is it the end of the world if you lose? No.

With this outlook, I can engage in the competition that all high schoolers go through while still being able to develop myself spiritually. I can roughly follow the path my parents want me to follow while still having the freedom to stray off the path, explore the untainted nature around me, wander at my own pace, then return to my otherwise regulated and fast-paced life, all the while remembering that the real journey is not the straight, paved path that everyone else blindly follows, but the adventures I have off the path, or on the path "less traveled by." Thus, my journey is pathless, and that is who I am.

Things on my list of things to learn:

  • divination
    • tarot
    • runes
  • dreaming
    • astral projection
    • lucid dreaming
    • spirit guides
  • rituals
    • important pagan/Wiccan rituals that I should know

Things I am interested but would rather teach myself:

  • herbal magick
  • candle magick
  • elemental magick
  • spellwriting

Things I know about:

  • Sabbats
  • esbats
  • moon phases
  • chakras
  • meditation

Yule has passed, and in many parts of the world, the earth is still dormant under layers ofsnow. The next time you go on a walk, appreciate all that is around youthe cold, the silence, the sleeping lifeand appreciate its beauty. You don't need tounderstand all of nature's secrets to appreciate her. May the God and the Goddess bless you all, and may your gods guide you in this winter season.

Ironic side note: My mom got me metal straws for Christmas because I was ranting about Zero Waste. Guess what? THEY WERE WRAPPED IN PLASTIC! And the back of the package explained why metal straws were environmentally friendly At least the plastic package was reusable. :/
