Howdy thar. :P Qen here! I would like know how you got into the Pagan religion and how has it changed your life. Why do you prefer this path over the former path you took?
I'll explain my story here:
A few years ago, I was pretty clueless on religion after leaving Islam. I found out things that were pretty unpleasant to me in that religion,so,I never bothered to go back. One time, I was taking a bus to school and met a girl. We hanged out with each other frequently and got to know one another. During our friendship, she told me she practiced witchcraft or Wicca( I think that's what she said). At first, I was scared but through her explanations, I managed to demolish my fear. She handed me a scrap of paper with a list of candle color meanings when doing candle magick. To make a long story short, I did hard research on Paganism,Satanism, and witchcraft. I attempted spells and most of them had worked for me. Everything about the path just amazed me and I wanted to be apart of it.After years of practicing witchcraft, I realized that I have control over my life. I can do anything if I put my mind to it. :) I'm currently a poly atheist green witch but I respect highly of Pagan religions. I prefer my practice over Islam because I can do my own miracles without a deity,I don't have to confirm to what a female should be, no book telling me how I should feel about something or do and other reasons.
Hello thar,TallawahKaBast. :D Awesome posssum. And I shall do the same. I enjoy my practice and I love exploring things I never encountered before in witchcraft. Have you ever astral project? I tried to do it. I was so close. >_br/>
I come from a Christian background, I was always drawn to the 'esoteric', but had to hide it as these interests are frowned upon. As an inquisitive child, I frequently asked questions about passages in the bible that did not sit well with me, the priests answered my questions with "because it just like that", which as you can imaging did nothing to satisfy my curiosity.
I have also had various supernatural experiences and sense that there is something beyond the physical plane. Battling with years of instilled conditioning by Christian churches, I finally made the decision to take the plunge. I have not cast any spells of sorts, just blessing and if you will purification rituals. I prefer to practise alone due to the traumatic experiences of the church.
I am still on my life long learning curve and I am loving any minute of it.
My path is kemetism, but I am also exploring hemetism, which is the parent of kemetism, and other paths.
I shall go wherever my spiritual path leds me.
OH. :o Really? I thought astral projection were safe to do... Hm. Yes. I would do hard research on this too.
