    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...

    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...

    Christianity is a religion with its roots in

    Egypt. It is an offshoot of Judaism, descended from a blending of two fundamentalist Jewish lobbies. It gained global precedence because of it's linking to the Roman Empire. In Northern Europe at about the same time there was a deepening growth in the religion of the Norse...

    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.

    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.

    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...
