Sometimes a post comes along that gives one pause for thought or reflection; this may be one of those for me.

Upon reflection, I realise (if that is the right term considering) that I have been Pagan most of my life. I was a Christian brought up in the Baptist faith, I followed the tenets and even was a member of the youth group etc. wrote and performed songs along with some of the members. However, during this time I also had, what was considered to be, a morbid interest in things occult in nature. Admittedly, much of what I learned was hype or pure rubbish (we didn’t have Charmed etc. back then) but a lot was genuine info. Being young and following a Christian path, my gleaned knowledge was somewhat disjointed, and I had the underlying “Fire and Brimstone” teaching lurking in the background. I grew to doubt many things, trying to puzzle out how certain teachings worked with certain contradictions, and various other Christian beliefs that didn’t seem to tie in for me, no one could give me answers that worked for me either.

It was much later before I became a confirmed Pagan, but all that I had learned before was always there and I was able to sort out the “wheat from the chaff”.

So in answer to the original post, I can’t say that I was brought to my path by any Deity, I can say however that I have stumbled and staggered my way to where I am now, I still have the bruises to show for it too. I am also an Agnostic, which kind of makes the question a little more complicated……

One thing more however, I won't say Deity didn't bring me here either.

I was commuting to work, years ago, and heard an interview with Isaac Bonewits that absolutely fascinated me.  I communicated with him via email for a little while; about the same time, I found a site called Spirit On Line, where I met Scottish witch who taught me about the craft, and a Christian who taught me about energy work.  I was never Wiccan. 

While I would currently call myself a Christian, it wouldn't be in any traditional sense.  I subscribe to no religion; I believe what I wish based on my own life, philosophy, and spiritual and historical research.  I practice as I wish according to my own very personal set of ethics.

Most important, I strive to take responsibility for my own actions, which ever way I choose to go...

Thank you guys so much for the replies! Its so great to be able to talk about this! I have seen a lot online but I'm wary of what I read online, as people can post any nonsense they make up on the internet and make people believe its legitimate. I'm just trying to get myself to a point where I'm very well educated and can choose the best path for me


This is not something to be rushed, take your time, learn what you can and let your path reveal itself to you. Some of us have changed our paths along the way, and that's okay, sometimes it has to be that way so we can learn what we need to. Remember; there is no race and no time limits, we all move at our own pace.

Welcome to the pack Nightfire. Feel free to check out the threads. The search feature here is pretty good and can help you find information on just about anything Wiccan/pagan. What you can't find, the members will be more than happy to help you with. The best (and most given advice) is read, read, read, read, and read some more.

Hello all! I'm excited to be here and learn from all of you.

A bit about me, I suppose: I'm a laid back female from Wisconsin. I've been interested in Wicca for about 10 years now, learning as I go. I never really knew where to start, so that's why I'm here. I've always felt more at home in nature than with other people. I've always identified strongly with wolves.

If you'd like to know more, just ask. I'm pretty open. Thank you for having me, and I look forward to getting to know everyone.

Welcome to our Forum Rain.

Oh, don't worry about the Dragon. He might look fierce and scary, but he's a pussycat really. If you ask nicely, he'll even share his cookies with you.......

Alchymist

Only the broken ones....LoL
