Dear Melunia,
Merry Meet!  Scott Cunningham is an excellent introduction to the elements, energy manipulation, and white magic!  Especially his early works.  I have also found everything by Ellen Dugan very helpful over the years.  Although I have also studied (not practiced) what I, personally, consider to be the "darker" side of magic,  sticking with the "light" paths of positivity have always found me in good stead.  3 times 3.... Ellen Dugan is very positive in this way. 
Bright Blessings,

I was wondering if people would like to share their experiences that convinced them of the existence of a divine/spirits/magic etc. This may not apply to everyone, depending on personal belief, but if you're comfortable with sharing I was curious about other people's experiences of these things that gave them the conviction to believe. Many people would argue that there isn't enough evidence for belief in divinities or that gut instinct and intuition isn't enough to justify a belief. I have no opinion on this at the moment, but wanted to see what others in the community thought of it.
As for some background: this also comes from a recent issue I have been facing in my personal life, one when due to a confrontation I now feel the need to justify my own belief. Although I have my own reasons for faith, they feel a little shaken now, and even though I'm sure I'll recover I was looking to reach out into the pagan community for some guidance or reassurance.

Anything you can contribute at all, no matter how small it may seem to you, will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks to any and all replies made!

I did not experience the same parental control as you Amber. There are times when I look back and i'm amazed I didn't get in more trouble than is normal for a teen-ager. I think my parents were easy on me coz I had depression as a teenager. I know now there were times they were very frightened for me and did give me a little nudge one way or the other. But my parents were never oppressive. I miss them both very much. I did the best I could to be a good parent, just as we all do.

Amber I think you have given a wonderful gift to your son.

Dear Spirit,
I don't know the situations of which you are referring , but you are right in this: I am growing old, I have earned it.  And who am I to challenge the "Omniscience of Youth"? 🔑😃  Be well, and I hope you find what you seek...

Spirit,, if you want us to understand then just write what you really want to say . It's not like we are there with you think of it as writing to yourself as in a dairy. Say what you mean metaphor 's don't work with people who don't know you. So why don't you start again and keep it plain.

We do want to help,

I agree with both of you, Marisol and Mystik Witch, but at the same time I still remember what it is to be that age and have parental control over me be irritating and oppressive. As nice as it is to have people concerned for me, and my son knows  I am for him, I absolutely hated feeling like my mom was trying to control what I did. Perhaps that comes from more or less raising myself and my sister and brother since our parents divorced when I was still single digit in age. Both parents worked full time and Dad was pretty non existent and Mom too tired to be too involved until we hit our teenage years. Suddenly Mom decided we needed far more supervision when we were coming of an age that we should be exploring, making our own decisions and learning to live with consequences. Even then I realized that was necessary and yes, in that context. Maybe I'm a bit more optimistic than I should be but I feel unless there is a serious mental instability of some sort that teens and young adults are capable if we just leave them to it with an open door to just bounce ideas or advice if needed.
