    Pagan And Proud

    I started out with Wiccan tendencies.  However, Wicca seemed a bit too dogmatic for me, so I'm rather an eclectic Pagan.  I relate to the Divine in a way that feels right to me.  That's about it for now, being that it's past my bedtime, lol.

    From one of my Astrologically minded friends, please find the story below. I was a tiny kid when the song came out and was gleeful in my twenties with the beginning of the New Age, knowing we were heading toward the Age of Aquarius, though it's about a 30 year long shift. Yeah...

    I Know There's More..

    ..than one god, so I am Pagan. I am not Wiccan (although I used to be), because I don't have the time to actively practice something. I can't dedicate myself to a religion if I can't give it my all.

    And It Isn't Over

    I wanted to share with you that persecution still happens in the legal system. My ex-husband is seeking custody of my daughter though he knows nothing about how I express my Paganism. He claims that his "Christian values" are superior to my values. With the exception of...

    My Eclectic Pagan Journey

    Before I start, I should state that I don't believe in labels. As a result, the definitions I have included here are very loose and I will attempt to explain as I use them. I became interested in alternative religions at the age of 18. I'm 27 now. As most of us do, my first...

    Former Wiccan

    No. Not a Christian story. Lol. I began research at an early age because of some paranormal experiences like seeing ghosts, having prophetic dreams, and memories of a past life. This led me to paganism and witchcraft, and ultimately Wicca. I loved the ideas and structure, and the...

    I'm not necessarily a practitioner. My husband, however, is. He teaches and mentors me in Paganism, and I still hold to some of my original Christian influences.
