Greetings
« on: October 23, 2014, 09:25:06 PM »

Greetings to all who wish to read this,
A little about me first. For now I will withhold my name if that is ok, I am a male. I was born on Oct. 23rd, 1990. Yes today, 24 years ago. I am glad today of all days I was accepted to the forums. I often like to sketch and meditate. I find it most relaxing to meditate outside or in a forest. Forest mostly because I tend to see things others can't. I used to love to astral travel, mostly while I slept. I run daily until recently, I had to have surgery to remove my gull bladder because it was causing my liver to fail. Recovery is moving fast. I feel a lot better now.
The path I have chosen is uncertain at this moment. I feel a strong connection to Wicca. But there is a story behind that, that I will tell to explain it. I never had problems meditating. Going to my meadow. Feeling free. Connecting with myself and nature. I started having issues with finding my meadow. It seemed to change. Then I was visited by a shadow. Gender less to my sight, but after asking a few friends(they claimed to be Wiccans) they informed me "he" was a figure called "The Master". He would give me insight, encouragement, and knowledge. He taught me a lot and did give me all these things while in my meadow. Then I started seeing him outside my meadow. It was strange to me because every time he would appear, it would scare me, only because it was unexpected for him to appear so abruptly then vanish. Again my "Wiccan" friends said it was because he was trying to get my attention. Then while I was attending school in Kentucky for a year, I started to see a what my friends also called the lady in white. She always appeared to me while I was awake. I would see he walking through the woods, always glancing at me but never approaching me. I asked The Master who this woman was. He explained she would try to take my body if I astral traveled when she was near. And try to convince me to commit suicide. This struck me odd because she seemed so peaceful and inviting. He told me that was the lure. To get draw in her prey. So I stopped astral traveling and haven't since. About 2 years now. Then recently I have been feeling like something is clouding me. My mirrors have changed. Its harder for me to concentrate to enter proper meditation. So I traveled to Hampton, Va to visit my mom who wanted me to visit this shop called Kindred Spirits. So we went and I met a lady I explained this same story to and she insisted my friends were wrong. And this figure was a dark force. And the lady in white was indeed the Goddess. She explained to me a little, I mean little about The Goddess and The God. Instantly I felt a strong draw and interest in them. Like a darkness and been removed. So I have been doing a little research and I am to the conclusion now that Wicca may be what my heart has been missing. I also came across this forum. I feel I can learn a lot here. Hopefully I will be accepted. And hopefully I can find out who or what this shadow is and a solution for it. It has shown me somethings that are starting to trouble me. Maybe someone here might know or have information on something like this. I will also search the forums as well.
I haven't followed or research for that long. But I feel this is right, wholeheartedly. Like a new found energy has grown in me.
I currently live in Virginia. It's small city called Winchester. Not to to big but not really small either. I go to skyline drive often to try and ground myself. Skyline drive is a national park. Tons of places to hike and camp.
My mom supports that I have chosen to follow Wicca and its history and teachings though she do not. She follows witchcraft but doesn't fully follow Wicca. I have asked why but she refuses to explain.
So that is a lot about me but if there is anything I have missed or if there are questions please feel free to ask. I am open minded and a open book. Hope everyone has a good night/day. Stay safe.

P.S.
If there are any spelling errors. My apologies.

Welcome!
I am new here as well.  If you have questions I am well versed in the involvement of negative entities on someones life and I'm sorry to hear that you had one influence your want to astral travel and meditate.  There was a generational one that attached itself to me for about 10 years controlling my physical body.  Best of luck finding your path and a speedy recovery! :)

Love and Light,

Thank you both for the kind replies. As for the dark force. For long time I didn't feel it was a dark force. It is always kind to me. But I question some of the things it says and does. Again I am not sure it its evil or bad but I am working on finding that out.

Be safe.
