Hi group,
Used to be on here a long time ago and dropped off when life got in the way, or I got in the way of life. Have been working solitarily for almost two years now on my own path which I wouldn't really pin into a title, a little bit of this and that. And then, one day after a wonderful realization, I've decided to stop secluding myself and reach out. I just decided to reach out to my community here in Arkansas and found a Pagan/Earth Based group and decided to come back here to continue my growth and sense of security with the path I chose! Looking forward to conversations with all!
Welcome back! Hope you find what you are looking for and be willing to share what you have learned. BB! MW

Thanks for fixing the link Drac. I love the links. Both are very informative. Its enjoyable to learn about the different phases of the moon not to mention the different names, where they came from and the time frame the name originated.

From the time I was a little child. I use to tell everyone the moon was MY moon. I would stare at it for a long time at night. Or when ever we would be driving somewhere at night. Was always a comfort to me.

BB! MW

Hey Ashe I was referring to self dedication and self initiation. I just don't talk about the difference between the two anymore. Seems to
cause upsets and so I leave it alone. We had a new member that liked to bait anyone about it and I argued with him re: the meaning of dedication and initiation. It was a long time ago, I was at one time quite a brat. I hope I have mellowed.

Every once in a  while the subject comes up, I just tend to shy away from it and let someone else tend to the answers. I have to admit
I was misdirected on the subject.

FS stated my feelings well in his statement above. But it is a touchy  subject to many and I understand the difference between
self dedication and initiation re: Wicca.

The Shakespeare references brought a thought to mind... "What's in a word?"  If you call the same thing by 15 different names, does it change what you're looking at?  People always argue about which one is right, but really why does it matter, beyond personal preference?
"
FS it doesn't matter, that has always been my opinion.

It may not change what you're looking at, but it can change the dynamic. At the risk of starting a feudal dog-pile, consider earlier issues we've had with "self dedication" and "self initiation". I believe the whole crux of that particular issue was more to do with the wording and not so much the "act"; it was misconstrued possibly through misdirection.

Drac this issue did have it's uses at one time. But for the sake of harmony it's been laid to rest.

Blessings
Which issue do you mean?

I get it, Lady of Shallot.  I really do.  But there's a key difference to bear in mind.  Christianity teaches there's one true way to salvation and the different denominations are convinced everyone. should believe as they do.

Trad Wiccans don't give a rat's patoot what anyone else believes, including other pagans and witches. We only ask questions if you call yourself Wiccan because that label  has a particular set of practices that defines it.  We certainly don't believe Wicca is the One True Way.

I think this point is often missed.

Completely agree, Ashe, thank you for pointing this out. I think it's one of the reasons I find my seeking so enjoyable. I'm free to find what works for me, and no one here has ever had anything but helpful suggestions,  no judgements!

So does this mean Alchy is your grandson? XD Y'all are the coolest surrogate invisible family ever, haha!

I wonder how I'll explain that to my grandparents .... I can see it now, me asking for coal and bacon and her questioning me. "Oh just, you know. Gonna feed my little dragon friend." She already laughed at me once for going outside and finding a stick from our Japanese maple that had fallen. I currently have three long sticks in my room that I'm waiting to carve up for a wand. Have to keep my grandparents from tossing them because they come in and fuss haha!

When I was younger I tried to do the worm once and I basically just went splat. Spread eagle with my forehead on the floor because I failed miserably XD

Hello everyone,
I have decided my Yule resolution for the year will be this...

- I plan on learning more about my craft. To spend a ton of time with the Deities and learning more of who I am.
- To learn more about machine quilting. Maybe to sell a few of them, eventually.
- To finish the sculpture I have been working on. Then I want to complete at least 4 to 6 more this next year.
- I also want to go on at least 2 vacations. Not sure where yet. Just go with hubby for some long over due time away.

These are a few of my resolutions.
Hope everyone has a safe and happy Yule! MW

KittyKat , we are your surrogate invisible family , you can hear us you just can't see us . Nice to have a granddaughter .

Leave a treat for Romeo on the outside widow sill , get a piece of coal and wrap it in bacon . That should bring him around more .

If you fall on the floor and can't get up do this , push your jaw hard on the ground and then bring your legs up to your chest , lift your head and lurch forward , it's called doing the worm . Looks really funny to anyone watching ............heehee .

Glad to be soul siblings with you Alchy! :P I'm pretty sure I've always been bonkers, I'm just finally realizing it!

I just imagined us all being in a mental institution in straight jackets running around trying to play tag. But since our hands and arms are tied to our bodies we'd lose our sense of balance and just fall everywhere then roll around on the floor because we can't get up.
