    Demons In Church

    I went to church yesterday after a long while and it made me realize why I didn't go there any more, why I made the choice to sever ties with society becoming a hermit instead... I felt like a stranger on unknown territory known all to well and as the anger built up inside I saw...

    In The Shadows And Out

    I discovered Paganism when I was very young. It was a relief for me to find that this nameless "thing" in my life and spirit was given a title. Many things made sense to me, as it usually happens with others. I didn't share my new found beliefs with my family at first. I studied...

    I was born into a Catholic family. I was raised Catholic but....I feel like I always was a witch you know? Not a wiccan, a witch. I was tickled by the knowledge of the Occult and witchcraft. I dipped into it every once in a while until my mom found out. You know what happened...

    I'm proud of my heritage,

    my beliefs and my ethics. I will always be first to admit I'm no saint, I'm certainly no hero or priest (In the since of someone of the cloth/infallible) I've tried Christianity for over 12 years and I watched good people suffer for no reason; including my own grandmother who...

    Eclectic Pagan Demi-goddess!

    Deeper And Deeper

    I fall deeper and deeper into myself, looking for the meaning of life, wondering about who I am and how I came to be. I look to my Goddess and ask her a question; just between the two of us, when the sun has yet to break the horizon to begin the dawn, I ask her who I am. She...

    I've been a Pagan since the 1970s.

    I won't get into my life's journey here but it seems Christianity and its message has been hijacked by conservatives who are using it attempting to control society. My Pagan faith is a refusal to fear "others" be they LGBT, foreign or other non Christian paths. I am a Pagan...

    Merry Meet!

    Since I was a little girl, I knew there was something odd about me: I had premonitions, I saw ghosts and I could read palms, I used to dressed up as a gypsy, etc. Unfortunately, I was born among Jehova´s witnesses and this was a nightmare. My family often accused me of having a...

    I Love Who I Am And I Love Who We Are Together.

    Hundreds of years ago the abrahamic faiths

    tried exterminating our ancient traditions. But they failed and now every year christianity loses more followers then gaining new ones. While more people are returning to the old gods and true spiritualism.
