Likes: Merry Meet~!! There are many likes that I have. I enjoy nature, self-reflection, music (a wide variety but these days it's been of the foreign nature. Korean pop) , writing, drawing, photography. I like giving, the open-minded; I like learning. And yourselves?
Dislikes: There's not many things that I dislike, but: self-depreciation, pessimism 24/7, and alarms, definitely. I can't think of much else.
Hello. I want to start off by introducing myself. My name is Sierra, and I am now currently 19.
I've "Tagged" myself as a Wiccan for roughly about 8 years now. Though, I honestly must admit that I do not know as much as I should know. I have studied bits and pieces from here and there, and I enjoy reading from different people's opinion of this very subject. I had the whole shared-parenting deal growing up; one week with mom, the next with dad. My mom is Agnostic. Staying with her, religion was never brought up in any way at all. There was always an air of indifference. "Eh, if there's a higher power, good. If not, well, that's also okay." That kind of thing. Pretty carefree. Living with my dad however, I wouldn't say he was a fanatic or anything. He'd started off a Christian and then switched to being a Muslim; dragging me along in with him. It was a cool thing, honestly. Getting to try out-- get a feel for both Christian and Muslim religion. I was able to decide whether or not it were something I wished to commit to. Although religion was a big deal with him, there was also an air of indifference. As for myself, I'm just floating around, taking in new information on different religions. I can sit and listen to those of other religions without complaint, just as much as I can listen to those without. Soaking it all in like a sponge.
I met my first pagan in eighth grade. Back then it wasn't really to be taken seriously-- not at the start, anyway. It was almost as if it were taboo to us at the time. A whole new ball game. This girl's parents would have a fit, most unnamed in my family would explode. When she'd mentioned to me about Paganism I had no idea what the hell she was talking about, haha. Along the line, though it was still a game, or 'phase' to her- I'd started to feel at home. Comfortable with the things her and I studied together. I've always been attuned with nature. I've always felt more at peace with myself when I was in it. After my father passed away, I'd gotten more and more involved in the studying. Into the readings; and when my mom had noticed my interest, she kind of just shrugged and said, "well, alright."
Well... I think the main reason Paganism calls out to me, is because I feel a certain sense of hope and strength in it. To me, I don't think it's about magic, or any of the voodoo mess. I've always thought that words were the mightiest weapon you could use. And to create a chant, a 'spell', I believe that's what calls out to me. I feel as if the rituals and castings are food for the soul itself. Hm. I don't disbelieve in the possibility of God/desses. But I can't say I completely believe either. Kind of like with my mom, it's just if there is a higher power, that's great. Perfect, really. But if there isn't, that's also fine. Because there's this. Belief and hope. Faith and strength. At least, that's what I see anyway. And I think that to be good enough a reason as any to continue down this path.
Well, I'm not sure if I can rightfully explain this.... Hm...
Ah! Well, I assumed that there had to be something better out in this world for me, you know? The life that I was living previously was... Well, it was depressing. Seriously depressing. And for a girl my age-- It's not really healthy for me.
I felt connected to Nature. I felt as if the only place I belonged was next to a tree. Not only that, but even though I was depressed, The world was undoubtedly beautiful. I found pleasure in looking at the small things. The wondrous things.... And then I heard about Wicca.
And that simple a name felt like home to me. I decided before I did ANYTHING, I would read. Just read. Read until my eyes hurt. I'd go to the library, and flip through tons of various books, with various Authors opinions, and theories, and ways of doing the Craft. I took some theories and activities and mashed them together to make a new, better activity/theory that best fit myself.
And even now, I'm still reading. Though, I'm now starting to actually PRACTICE, and create little small, cute spells that I believe to work the best for me; Magic is not the only beautiful option with this religion. And I hope that some of those who believe that it is, gets the chance to experience their own beautiful piece.
Well... A pleasure sharing...
Merry Part and Blessed Be~!
