I've always wanted to be Wiccan but my parents won't let me. I've adopted many elements of Wicca into my life, secretly of course. Once I'm out and about, Wiccan I shall become! (I'm a lesbian and possibly transgendered.)

I'm more of an atheist myself,however i believe in the supernatural.I've read many many books on pagan religions especially WICCA and i think it's very nice how nature takes a huge part in it.Actually it is all about nature.For me nature is my 'god' but i wouldn't want to join any groups,i think it's something personal.

Paganism is often left up to the individual as to what exactly the practice entails. (we dont sacrifice small children and animals though). I believe a lot of Wiccans are somewhat Matriarchal in believing in a goddess however most of the time it is split between a goddess and a god.

There is no set canonical text because originally many traditions were either passed down orally, as with the druids, or some ancient texts were lost or previously destroyed, as with the egyptians aztecs and other highly advanced societies. But as with almost all pagan religions the original roots are in fact usually very old and that aura of mystery is often what may keep practitioners coming.

Some pagans do of course have a belief in magic, either theirs or the worlds own personal force. But either way it is something that can be used and is in no way shape or form evil. And Whether it is truly unexplainable or not we have yet to find out seeing as most of the acts are mind related. But I'll be the first to openly its verity.


Thank you very much for writing this. It is exactly how I feel I just couldn't find a way to explain it.
Code:

I believe you hit my nail right on the head. Wiccan and Paganism leaves one pretty much to you own study and no direction as to how and when to whorship. There is the rub.
I need guidance and direction as I find Christianity a false belief other than Jesus was a very good man who spoke truth and love.
