Hello to everone
« on: April 28, 2011, 04:08:55 AM »

Okay, I guess the place to start would be hello; so hello everyone my name is Erika, I know some people have a craft name, but i could never have the heart, i was named after a relative who died a few months before i was born, my mum was asked to name me Erika.

My introduction to Wicca came when my granddad died when i was twelve years old. I didn't believe what people were telling me, so i started reading and researching other 'explanations' if you will for what i was feeling. I began seeing and feeling him around me, people called me crazy and that i was imagining it, but in my heart i knew he was there. It was not long after his death i began to have dreams about my Nan's death, seeing he in a hospital bed connected to machines and really sick. In the dream her eyes refused to close, i was terrified by this. I told my parents and they said it was just a bad dream. 18 months later she died in a hospital of bowel cancer, i was told by my mum that she refused to close her eyes until she had seen each of her children.
I freaked and ran away, trying to run from myself mostly.

After about 6/7 months i tried to find my way back, to accepting her death and making my peace with that fact, so i began researching and reading books again and a few things began slipping into place for me.
When i was 16 i got extremely sick and was in ICU for 6 months, hooked up to all kinds of machines, i was told many times i should have died. I've been hit by a car that should have paralyzed me, but all i ended up with was a hip replacement. I'm not sure why i have survived everything that has happened and i do question why i did at times. But now I'm 24 and alive.

I am still learning the path and that is why i am here. I have many questions, but i am not sure of the words to say them. I am not looking for definitive answers, because i'll never get those.
People don't always accept me for who i am or what i believe, but i am finally glad i had the courage to come here and get the chance to talk to people with like minded thoughts and have had similar and different life experiences.

So that is pretty much Erika, I thank you for the acceptance.

Many blessings on you! 

Erika
