Title: I'm Faith :)
Post by: Lunamo on January 21, 2011, 03:06:53 PM
Hi my name's Faith. I'm extremly new to Wicca and havent yet proclaimed it as my own religion. however, I'm very interested in doing so, I would just like to learn more before i just jump into a hot tub thinking its a pool.. i havnt renounced my current/previous religion either... I would love to discuss the religion but I'm fairly ignorant about it.. I did read a bool called "the Wiccan Handbook" by Eilleen Holland so i do know a little but  I'm still not very well-versed. Any helps or just talking will help and hopefull I'll find some stuff out on my own in the forums but Anywho. Thanks  ;D

And what religion is it that you haven't left behind?

Why are you considering changing?

What about Wicca, specifically, calls to you?

What other paths have you researched?

I agree with this moderator, your introduction didnt exactly specify why you chose wicca or what is wrong with your previous religion. I don't really want to know myself, but I find it useful if people explain things like that to others, it tends to help the individual understand their own reasoning better.

-personally i was thinking of waiting till my 75th post to make my introduction  :-p

welcome.  ;D

I'll just have to hack the forum server and make it your first post then.....

I mostly ask those questions for the OP's benefit.  Help them start sorting.

well i suppose if you really want I could post an introduction. There really isnt much to say about me that cant be read in some of my posts.  :-p

To be honest, it never struck me that you never did an intro post.

Myself, I could care less.  Keep hammering away at the keyboard.  Intro or no.

To be honest, I never felt the need, for an intro, but then again it wasn't until my 40th post that I realized I didn't make one. I just read a lot of topics, and post to what seems interesting enough to entertain me, even the slightest bit.

How are we even supposed to take you seriously without an intro? Just log off the computer and give up right now! >:( >:( >:(

Well, I suppose that would depend on entirely what I post. If I type something that was clearly meant to be sarcastic or even appears to be then that is likely how i intended it, if it is something serious then i would have it come off that way. :-p :-p :-p

I am honored by your kind words.

I hope Faith comes back soon.

@Rainman: you've mentioned elsewhere that you don't speak of your craft, why not?

And look at that: only 14 more posts before we get an intro from you.  ;)

Back to Faith:

The more you put in here, the more you'll take out of the experience.  Just gotta get that first step taken and the rest get easier.

I do not speak of my craft until I am positive of the intent of the person I am speaking to or for that matter writing to. I have met several people who call themselves Wiccan because they practice black magic, then they have turned to me for further training and advice.

Only those who show me that they have positive intentions, and genuine love in their hearts are the ones I  discuss my specific craft in great detail.

I have been studying wicca in detail since 2006, but in that time I have only has one student, and one person who turned to me as a guide.

But where's the fun in that??  Sometimes it's good to be bad.   ;)





Oh, I would so rip you to shreds...figuratively, not literaly....................unless I had good reason to...

Well i havent left behind Christianity.. I guess because its all I've ever known.. Im considering changing because I dont really feel complete in it if that makes any sense. I like Wicca's Natural path and I have researched buddhism a little and pagan paths but then i came here for more answers. :)

And thank you for the welcome :)

Feeling incomplete seems to be a reason a lot of people change religious/spiritual paths.  And it's a perfectly valid reason.  Your spirituality should help you feel more complete, not the opposite.  And you'll find a lot of good answers, as well as references here.  If nothing else, we can help by being a "jumping off point" as it were.

We're good at that.

The more you participate, the more you'll take out of your time here.  As you come across questions, search out the answers on the forums.  If you don't find your answer in an existing thread, start a new one and ask yourself.

You've obviously never blown stuff up just for the sole purpose of blowing stuff up...   ;)


What I also meant by my earlier post is: a lot of what I practice, and the spells and rites I have, would make the goodie-goodies crap bricks.

Thats very amusing snake. No I have never blown stuff up just for the sake of doing so, I pride my self in having and keeping a very strong sense of emotional self discipline.

It's hard to have emotional self-discipline when you're holding a stick of dynamite and a lighter.



I take it you've also never shot off fireworks on the 4th of July??  <--blowing stuff up for the sake of doing so.
Title: Re: I'm Faith :)
Post by: rainman657 on January 29, 2011, 06:52:51 PM
well, i have done the 4th of july thing, but it never gave me any kind of evil satisfaction, other than the talks about how much that 2 minute firework cost.
