I come from a Mormon upbringing, it was light at first and then got heavier as I got older and my Mother became more religious. Even at a young age I noticed that my mother and I both had the uncanny ability to know when things were going to happen, but I didn't know what it was then and Mom never said anything about it, it just was. I tried being Mormon but it didn't suit me, I looked into the Catholic (sp?) church and that didn't suit me either. When I got old enough I finally understood why none of the Christian churches suited me, I was different, I was a witch and no matter how far or how long I looked into Christianity it was never going to suit me. I decided to follow my own heart and began where I'm pretty sure just about everyone begins with Wiccan and while it seemed closer to my heart the strict forms and guidelines that you have to follow and the Threefold Law just didn't ring quite true in my heart either, how can you see a person who deserves to have a taste of their own medicine and you can't do anything about it lest you want it to come back to you threefold? Seemed a little silly to me. NOT that I would deliberately hurt anyone, I don't believe in that either. So I searched, trying to find a place where I would fit in, a label I could give myself (lol I'm Capricorn to the CORE!!!) I joined forums and asked questions and still none of it has rang true, it's gotten me closer to the truth in my own heart but never something that said 'hey here it is here is where you belonged' and I was starting to get discouraged. Then the other day as I was reading a
What does Traditional Witchcraft mean to you?
I'm a scholar at heart who's finally found the right spiritual path, and to me being a Traditional Witch means having the freedom to explore it. My mother would've been a pretty powerfull psychic but she's built up a mental block against it, her being Mormon pretty much explains it all. I have the gift through her, but I have also built up a mental block against it and I'm hoping that maybe here, in these forums, I'll meet some great people that I can learn and grow from and maybe a few suggestions as to how to get over my personal mental block. I know in my heart I'm a Witch, I'm just looking for a place where I can be around like minded people.
What do you expect to get from this site, and what do you expect to contribute to this forum?
Good people, good discussions, tidbits to add to my own personal knowledge, maybe be able to share the little I know with others. Hopefully some good suggestions on how to get past my mental block.
