I'm super new to all of this but I'm extremely interested. I am very open minded and since I was old enough to think for myself I knew that traditional beliefs and religions were not the way for me. I am 34, 3mo pregnant and I have a 14yr old daughter who is also interested. I have been a licensed nurse for 11yrs (LPN) Where do we start? Any ideas? She actually approached me with this when she was no older than 10yrs old. Again I'm very open minded, her dad is also and we are raising her to follow her own path without influence from us. Any advice is welcomed.
Thanks in advanced!!!
Welcome to the site. It would be a bit easier to help you with where to start if we knew exactly what you are interested in. Is it spell work you are primarily focused on? One of the specific magical paths such as Alchemy, Witchcraft, Ceremonial Magic, Wicca, etc? Talk to us a bit more about your and your daughter's interests and we'll be happy to get you started.
Some good, all-around basics to get started with would be to explore meditation, energy-working, and general philosophy. The topics are pretty universal when it comes to applying to particular paths and practices, and help to give a pretty solid foundation to draw from later. Especially if you want to cultivate a practice of self-improvement and healing. ^_^
