I have readers in Chile, Portugal, Greece, France, Ireland, Philippines, Indonesia, and from several states in the USA. Awesome! Apparently blogging about paganism brings in a wide variety of viewers. Merry meet to you all!
Blessings to you! I’m new to this path and was raised Catholic in the Midwest. I think we have much in common.
Hi! I’d love to hear your story!
I grew up Catholic but, once I was exposed to world religions in college, I realized that not everyone could be right when they all claimed to be the “One True Religion.” I lost faith and stagnated spiritually during my 20s and 30s. I have now reached the age where I’m starting to lose family members, and this caused some soul-searching on my part as to whether there is an afterlife or not.
Since I have some openly pagan friends whom I met through my geocaching hobby, I decided to look into Wicca just out of curiosity. Long story short, the more I read and understood, the more I realized that this was the path for me. My connection to Spirit that had been absent for my life for so long suddenly came flooding back once I opened my mind and my heart to the Goddess. Like you, I am working through the exercises in the book Paganism: An Introduction to Earth-Centered Religions by Joyce and River Higginbotham (great book!). There is so much to learn about subjects that I never took seriously before — Gods and Goddesses, crystals, magic, drum circles, yoga. Each book I read opens up new areas of study and new ideas to be considered. I feel like I’m in college again, but this time the course of study is more like a Hogwarts correspondence class, lol
I’m glad you’ve find where you belong! 🙂 Love the Hogwarts reference, haha. I had to return the Paganism book to the library before I finished working through it, but I need to get it again because it really was helping me. Such a wonderful book! Do you have a blog or anything like that?
No blog. I enjoy reading yours and am keeping a private journal for now. Keep up the good work!
