Hi! I'm new to this forum, but not the website. I've been studying wicca for about 4 years now. What really attracts me to wicca is how much different it feels to organised religion, which has never really been anything for me. I signer up here because i wanted to be connected to other people that belive in wicca (and paganism as a whole), which is really hard for me living in a really small town in Norway and not really finding any people in this country that actually practices it. Hopefully i'll be able to connect with people here  ;D

Saying I pick this God/dess is one way to go but just because you pick the one you like doesn't mean that one has picked you . Some who start on their paths think that they must only call upon the deities of​ that tradition . This is not so , sometimes the one you call on may not wish  to help you in your goal where another one will . Sure it would be nice to have the one we want just like it would be nice to be young and rich but things don't always turn out to be the way we want .


I things it is best for those starting out to place the call and see who answers. Yes you can call on any of them and do your rituals in their name just remembered that because you called does not mean it will be answered .


One thing to think about , you should never implore them . Don't whine , no one will like you if you whine . Kindness comes from strength and the ability to do what needs to be done no matter the cost .

You'll find cheese many who start out on one path change to gather a greater understanding of the nature of their beliefs . I know of one Lady that started out in the European tradition of Wicca and over the years has Incorporated aspects of Egyptian rituals into her beliefs that you would be hard-pressed to find any of the European ways in anything she does . A group of Freemasons have put their own slant on Druidism that is so elaborate it's epic in ceremony .


Learning about other paths​ and joining aspects of what feels right to you is common .Some people may tell you that combining different beliefs will be offensive to the true ways and they will be wrong , there are no true ways , just traditional ways from the culture that started them . The main thing is what works for you . It does not matter how you follow what you believe as long as it works for you . Remember that one of the main tenets of the paths of Magic and those that believe in it is to not judge others . Follow the path you wish and if you can't find one then make your own . Magis is very flexible , it bends but never brakes .

Hello Rocala, I have always loved eclecticism. I find it a good way to develop personal spirituality and since it is developed over time it's necessary to know where to start. Is this what you are asking? Many people start with Wicca for example and keep certain tools they have found there and then spread out to gather bits and pieces of other beliefs.

It would seem to me that there would be nothing wrong with following the parallel beliefs of Druidism and Buddhism. For you personally, only you can decide.

Wicca is a religion  and tho as Druidism has celtic roots they are each different from the other. If you find which one resonates more with you start there. Research is definitely important. Whatever path you choose it never stops evolving. I'm sure Oldghost can tell you more about Druids and Wicca. Best of luck on your journey.

Blessings

Just so you are aware, and so you know this is not falling on deaf ears; I am sitting in the background watching and I've been finding this all very interesting. Please continue to let us know how you are progressing.

My grove did the solstice celebration over the weekend (it’s more convenient with everyone’s work schedule – which didn’t matter as y’all will see).  Our grove is small – only six people.  And only three people made it to the solstice, me and the two leaders.  This was sort of a cool thing, as they stopped and explained many things of the ritual during the ritual.  Interestingly enough, my past life as a Catholic was very helpful.  I understand ritual and had already “peeked behind the curtain”, so to speak.  Creating a sacred space, respecting that space, and then creating an exit from that space is familiar to me as a liturgical musician. 

Shoot, there was even a sprinkling rite and incense.  I might as well been back in a Mass.  :P

They didn’t call on any particular deities.  We wrote intentions down for the year and burned them in the bonfire (and having a fire in midsummer in Louisiana?  Friggin’ hot, man.  Jeez.  Lol ).

All in all, it was interesting, energizing, and I’m looking forward to the next celebration.
