I apologize if this is posted twice. Computer had a glitch!

I couldn't have said it any better. After reading this post from top to bottom. I have to agree with you both og and Alchymist. Each of you have said exactly how I feel about my path. I just never felt like I belonged with my family's beliefs and their religion. I felt like I was on the outside looking in. I was always reading something that was to do with witchcraft or energy. ( I had to hide it or my mother would ground me and lecture me on the devil). Sundays were very hard for me to deal with. I dreaded Sundays. I finally refused to go with my family to their church. I would rather stay home and have be forced to clean the house then go to church and deal with that. It just wasn't right. The more I study about my path of being a witch. The easier it is becoming for me to understand why I have been drawn here from my earliest childhood years.

Everyone says its like coming home. In many ways, yes, it is. That warm feeling in the pit of your stomach. The calm that comes over you when you ground and center. The knowledge that the deities are with you, (what ever deities you believe in).

"In a way those that are drawn to any kind of Magic appear to have a internal compass that points to the energy of Magic and like a magnet it pulls us in the direction we need to go to get stronger. Some only feel the pull a little and some feel it much stronger. It's with one all the time, we just have to want to find that source of the pull." quoted from og

But most of all just being content knowing what I am studying and learning, somehow some where, I have learned it all once before. Finding my path and what is new to learn each day is a tremendous gift to me.

As Alchymist said, "You know you're a witch when you know you're not anything else."

Fortunately for me, I was left to my own and only taken to Sunday Skull until I didn't like it.  (that didn't take too long)
I naturally moved towards free-thinking and embraced a Bohemian lifestyle so was very easily able to open up just about anything which I felt strongly enough was good, pure and true. 
Unfortunately drugs and Philosophy got in the way of that and before I knew it I was getting to damn close to stuff which I can only describe as 'evil' -- though at the time, I just thought it was a 'pull'   -- it was but the very wrong sort of 'pull'     
I ended up getting sweet into a vortex of emotionalism and before I knew it I was riding the roller-coaster of happy-sad-happy-sad until eventually I became disenchanted (much Sunday Skull) and drifted away eventually finding my way little-by-little into a state that I think is beautifully described in the U2 song "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For"  -- it's great to be open and honest and follow the 'pull' of 'One Love' -- so many great leaders have shared this insight - - Bob Marley was really an amazing force of Nature who has continued to spirit me up! 
I love reading Sri Caitananya's 8 verses (new to me) and also enjoy the romantic story of Krsna and Radha -- so beautiful -- the union of love and lover -- magical 
As to spells, I've only tried once and felt a little like I was imitating one those B-Grade witch movies and laughed it off - I guess I have a bad taste in my mouth for any form or repetition -- including "Hare Krsna, ...."  -- I just like the idea of the 'pull' but more so the essential nature of being a witch and that is to be a 'seeker'

Blessed be

In a way those that are drawn to any kind of Magic appear to have a internal compass that points to the energy of Magic and like a magnet it pulls us in the direction we need to go to get stronger . Some only feel the pull a little and some feel it much stronger . It's with one all the time we just have to want to find that source of the pull .

Thank you for your insight.  The word 'pull' was one I remember hearing in some of the sermons by the late William Marion Branham.  I suspect that most great callings are accompanied with a strong compulsion that this is good, right and positive and one aught to avoid those which generate fear in one.

Solitary and in the closet  ::) I would love to safely meet others..can't see that happening, am too afraid..might not be who they say they are  :o

This as well, by the time found someone i trusted enough to open to, they moved.

I feel the same Valerie. But alot of my problem is in the distrust of any stranger I might meet. I've always been a bit of a loner. Past experiences color a lot of my mistrust and I try to be friendly to people I meet. But if they push to hard and are overly friendly I tend
to turn and run. This applies to all areas of my life, not just the closet. :)

I agree with you completely. I don't share myself with others. It has taken me 35 years to allow my husband to understand what I really am. He still doesn't get it even after I have told him and given him a couple of books to read. Still, I don't share with anyone unless I am completely comfortable with them. There is only one person I have opened up to and share my experiences with. TCC has been a huge blessing for me.

Blessed be! MW

I agree with you too Valerie. What I'm a bit afraid of is meeting someone who is an incredibly fluffy bunny and not being able to get rid of them. I imagine them pulling out this 32 page booklet that explains everything you could possibly want to know about Wicca, and telling me how experienced they are after 3 1/2 weeks of practice. Enthusiasm is fine, and a bit of eccentricity is tolerable as well, but people who are as og says, "off their rockers" scare the willies out of me!

Bluedjango I apparently misunderstood your question. I have to say my answer would relate more to the when I knew I was different from other people. I was very young when I felt the pull towards beliefs that were not my family"s. I was lost for many years, not knowing what to do with these feelings. I read all the books I could find at that time about witchcraft, but they just were not enough to satisfy me. When a friend gave me a book about Wicca I was amazed. From then on that is what drew me to witchcraft. That was the path that gave me entrance to what I was looking for.  Now I know who I am, although solitary I'm not alone.

So Alchymist and og have summed it up.

Blessings
