Hello everyone, happy to be here!

I've been lurking around this site for some time finally decided to make my first post... I was led here by a long time interest in the paranormal and during searching discovered some information about Wicca. It didn't take long before I realized that it resonated with me in a way that my Christian upbringing never did, and I hope to learn more.

I'm not jumping into anything at present, merely studying and looking for information to find out if this is truly for me. It's a big decision to dedicate to a new path, I feel like taking my time is the best choice.

Looking forward to learning more, and talking to as many as I can who are willing to share their knowledge.

Welcome back Seeker, good to see you again.

I wouldn't worry about the old posts, we all have many cringeworthy moments in our pasts, and not just on fora. Try looking back on some older photos of yourself; I have too many I tend to keep turned face down in the album....LoL  ;D

If I may.

From my experience, an offering is a way to acknowledge something outside of myself.  For me, it's very easy to get greedy and think of myself as "one who consumes".  When I give money to panhandlers, it is a conscious decision to let go of some of my money to remind me that I am part of a greater whole. 

It feels like, in America, I can get very ego-centric, and making an offering of money, or, like I did this weekend, of fresh bread that I made from scratch - I feel like I am reminding myself that I exist as a very small part of a very large world.  And that world doesn't exist to serve me, rather I need to serve it.

But that's just my experience.  Your mileage may vary.

I guess I need to explain why I have so many posts.... 

I used to post here, quite often, and then drifted away.  I'd show up every few years to say "hi" and see what was going on.

Hope that clarifies things.


****and just like a newb, I post this in the wrong forum.  Sweet****

So, it finally happened.

A few weeks ago, my girlfriend went to "Drums in the Swamp" (a pagan festival outside of Baton Rouge, Louisiana) as a vendor.  Well, she ended up selling squat, so she closed up shop and went to a few shamanistic workshops. 

And... She fell in love with the whole thing.  So to speak.  As she was telling me about her experiences, I mentioned that I have several friends who are in OBOD, and I've considered joining, but I've never "pulled the trigger" on joining.  I mentioned that I've dipped my toe into paganism, but never made the plunge.  I mentioned that I'm reiki attuned (by a Catholic nun, if you can believe it!  :) )

Well, we ordered the OBOD introductory material a few days ago, and it should be arriving next week sometime.  :)

I've always been attracted to paganism, but it took years and years for my lingering Catholicism to fall away.  Looks like it finally has fallen away and I'm actually really excited about this next step in my spiritual journey.

Sometimes it is hard for those that are starting out to be able be find the truth amidst all the bull . There are those who's speal come over so convincing that people believe it and it's not just the con they fall for but their own need to find something more then what they have .

That is one of the many reasons why places like this site are important . Here one can find the truth from those that have experience​d so much . We can guide those that seek to understand the traps that those new can fall into .

Being a mentor or teacher or even a guide can bring one a reward greater then any monetary value can ever . To help those that come after us and to keep what we believe to continue to grow is worth the effort .
