    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...

    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...

    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'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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

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