I am finding that immhaving a hard time putting my selfi out there as I know I need to in order to truelly belong here. This is in large part because I am highly dyslexic and know that my posts can be hard to read and I worry about being misunderstood. I am not naturally as outspoken as so many of you, a quality I greatly admire by the way but it is at odds with my up bringing where silence is seen as being more desirable.
I grew up around NA medician women my grandmother and great grandmother were bolth respected wise women a status I hope to achieve some day. For me being a medician woman was for told so some of my earliest memory's are of reading nursing texts with my grand mother and gathering plants. The way I have been taught is very traditional in that it's oral history passed down from the older generations to the younger. I grew up spending so much time with my grandmother and great grandmother that I have a hard time talking to others because I was supposed to be learning by listening not talking lol. That doesn't mean I couldn't ask questions or talk about what ever just that I was naturally a quite child anyway and being raised around old Indian women didn't help that.
I love practicing my craft, though I probably aproach it differently than a lot of people. I don't worry about setting up circles or alters usually because I find nature usually provides what I need. I'm also very lucky to have a spirit familiar who can protect me from most things that was handed down to me from my great grandmother. I find my self almost driven to follow the path at times others a wonder and learn new things and discover the other types of magic that I have not learned. One of the things I have learned here is how very knowledgeable all of you are and how much work you put into really knowing your history and roots I love that and find it so great that there are so many well read people here. I have browsed through so many old threads and found so much great information that I don't quite know how to thank you all. I don't believe your path to wisdom ever stops so it's great to be around others who feel the same way.
I will confess I have very little experiance with wiccans or fluffy bunnies lol love that term. I have never read a silver raven wolf book or anything like them I gather I'm lucky though lol. However because of this I'm pretty sheltered from a lot of experiances that might have been good to learn from. I want to learn from all of you but I know that is not something you just ask for because the knowledge we each has comes from a lot of time tears and blood so just saying hey you seem like a really great witch mind if I steal some of your knowledge I would rather find away to share. Though that brings me back to being dyslexic and how hard I'm finding it to put myself out there. Though I think I've taken a step forward with this blog at least I hope so.
