    Eclectic Pagan Demi-goddess!

    Beauty And Magick All Around You

    I am a proud Pagan. I have been despite everyone who has ostracized me, threatened me, hated me, cried over me, prayed for me, left me, gave me odd looks, told nasty rumours about me, misunderstood me, the list goes on. Do you know why? It is because I have found...

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

    Umm,I have felt my calling all my life and was raised a extremist christian and everything that wasn't just exactly "good christian" was the devil. So naturally the path of a pagan would be the most devlish of them all. However I have never agreed with anything I had been taught...

    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...

    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...

    How I Became A Pagan Witch.

    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...

    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...
