Okay. So, this is my first blog post and first time expressing Pagan interest publicly. Two birds with one stone!
I think I should first start out by saying that I was first exposed to
Paganism when I was 16, two years ago, by my good friend V. It was
something TOTALLY new I’d never thought imaginable and back then I
thought it was the perfect spirituality for me; I still think so to this
knew that the “Christianity” I was growing up with wouldn’t cut it.
First, our family wasn’t really Christian because we never went to
church. Well, maybe the occasional Christmas Mass, if we were lucky and
our parents had everything finished for Christmas day. But outside of
that, nothing. I had no real connection to this God. So I decided to
drop it and wait until something else more suitable came along and so it
before I was introduced to Paganism I realized something wasn’t “right”
with me. I kept hearing my name being called when no one was to be
found. I kept having to double-take when looking at people because I
thought I saw colors hovering above them, and I always questioned why I
felt the way I did sometimes when I knew I was completely fine.
shrugged it off until that fateful day I was cleaning up V.’s front
lawn and learned about the Jar of Dirt (without dirt). After Sam and V.
mentioned it I was curious and decided to ask but they dodged the
question until my persistence paid off and they cracked. And that’s
when I knew I was on the right path. We went for a walk down Frog
Hollow, where I had never been before, yet felt oddly welcomed by some
unseen force, and I told them of the odd events that happened shortly
after my 16th birthday.
my long story they taught me about grounding, centering and shielding
and I was rather quick to learn it and put it to good use. Looking back
at it, I’m extremely thankful for that lesson! It not only has helped
me protect myself from spirits, but from other people as well.
that I participated in whatever rituals I could get in on and have
learned from every one of them, no matter how quick they may have been.
My favorite part of them was the look on V.’s face when we were done
with them; slightly concerned, but only because I acted like I had three
of the biggest, most bad energy drinks out there!
in all, I have a basic understanding of a certain type of Paganism,
Wicca, but would definitely like to expand upon it. I find comfort in
stones and water, and would like to explore healing, ritual, magick, and
other spiritual methods with these elements in particular. I would
also like to be exposed to more spiritual activity as well; personally,
because I REALLY like meeting new people and spirits are no exception.
not exactly sure what specific type of Paganism is right for me, but
the religion as a whole seems extremely fulfilling to me and I’m sure
whichever one I choose it will be right for me. There’s even a
Czech-based one! I’m pretty heavy in Czech with my heritage, which is
why this is relevant, by the way. So
if anyone has suggestions, please
let me know! Although I still live in my parents’ house so things will
definitely be restricted as to what I can do… But I’ll try nonetheless!
pretty much all there is to know about me as of yet. But if you have
any questions, don’t hesitate to ask! I generally check my email, firstname.lastname@example.org, daily. So yeah… Thanks for reading!!
