I have been a studying pagan for 20 years now. For a long time I felt Wicca was my calling. As I have gotten older however I realize that I want magick woven throughout my day, I don't feel the need for lengthy rituals for simple magick. I want to create magick with my art, my crafts and my life. I feel like terms like hedge witch, druid, kitchen witch and green witch fit me closer then "Wiccan" does. I was curious about covens on this site and resources that more knowledgeable community members may have to help direct me onto a path I can finally feel at home on. Thank you in advance!
Others may disagree with this but I personally believe that a person cannot just choose a path. There has to be something more to a spiritual connection than I think I want to be a xxx today. Some of us are born into a faith as part of our heritage, others convert because they are dissatisfied with their connection to a faith because it doesnt fulfill them. The analogy is quite simple. Choose the path that speaks to you, fulfills you and fits well with your morals, ethics and the way you live.
Another important aspect is does your faith represent you? Do you believe in it to the point that it is a source of personal pride. If asked, can you proudly answer Yes, I am a xxx and I feel deeply connected to my faith. If this cannot be done. perhaps the path you have chosen will not work well for you.
As for having magick as a part of your daily life, it is either there or it is not. Rituals, altars, incantations and the like are secondary to belief that magick exists.
You are right about this, you will need to unleashed the beast in you, to know what you are capable of, I know of someone who can help you unleash what ever you want to become and you need to do is to believe
What do you mean by " whatever you want to become ",Thespirit18 ?
Regarding your situation, Firaleen, we sometimes all feel disconnected. People that have been studying their paths for decades sometimes feel disconnected, and like there's just no more miles to run. It is normal to feel that way. You can change your paths, as long as you're not jumping from one to another.
I do agree with what was stated above, choose a path that calls to you. Take your time, they won't run away.
Hi my name is brian,keep on studying and researching there is a path for everyone,i mean there is a path that suits you better and you will find it as long as you do not cease your research,sturdy and practice..i started as a wiccan witch and practiced wicca for many years wicca felt as my final destination but through research i came to discover that theistic satanism suited me even much better,wicca as greatly helped me in understanding the universe and in discovering a higher path.dont forsake your current paths they are stepping stones to discover what truly suits you.
I have found that i have always had a hidden source of power in me, it feels like a wave of energy that needs to be released yet i do not know what it is or how to use it but i feel like deep down i am Wicca. i do not know how i know this yet its what i feel. does anyone have advice on how to help me on my journey?
I think you should take the path you desire most.I'm similar to you,a practice of mine is.I create magic thru my arts,I paint.The type of paintings I do are prophetic or psychic.By psychic I mean I paint paintings that give me insight into situations or people.Good luck finding your true path.
