Baby witch finding her way!

Growing up… and now… adulthood I had many traumatic situations which caused me to erase a lot of my memories. I do remember however having a fascination with Wicca and witchcraft at an early age. I remember feeling some kind of connection. Having experiences or feelings that I couldn’t really describe because it wasn’t really talked about at that time. All I ever heard was black magic and how bad it was and what it can bring. I knew “the wicked witch of the west” in the wizard of oz” or the very little we was taught in school about salem. Especially being in an Christian family that was not real. Only GOD was real. Although I always had different feelings and outlooks on religion, I never connected with any of what I was taught. I seen the bigger picture. My family did not.
Over years I still had some kind of connection with the spiritual world. I felt I had a few different spiritual calling to guide me to this path. Finally my third eye opened after being in an emotional and mentally unstable toxic relationship. Again I have found myself back here trying to find my place . I started with tarot. And now I’m learning crystals and herbs. And I came across this app. I feelj so excited to take this journey with people like me. I’m ready to embrace what I have been missing all this time. Any advice I love. Thank you you hearing my story. Can’t wait to see what is next In my spiritual journey!!! Blessings to all🤍

I’ve been practicing for less than a year, and have only been here about 8 months. Check out the Spells8 courses for a fast education. I also check the forum daily. Between the challenges and reading about others experiences, it has really accelerated my learning.

Welcome @cierra1, thank you for sharing your story with us! I’m happy that you found your way here & everyone will be very friendly & supportive of your path. I am Siofra from Cape Cod, also an Eclectic Witch here that leans heavily towards a Celtic path, but I draw from many places, ideas, etc. I work with Brighid :triquetra: a Celtic Goddess regularly, well, daily.

The courses are a great place to start as @Undomeher mentioned. There’s a little bit of everything & the section is continually being updated. There is a Tarot course, Green Witch/Herb courses, between the site & the forum the amount of crystal information & practitioners continually grow, so feel free to ask any questions & someone will get back to you & get you pointed in the right direction.

@Amethyst has written a poem for each of the cards in a tarot deck: :flower_playing_cards: Tarot Poems by The Gifted and Talented Kasie they include the Major & Minor Arcana.

Tomorrow a new Weekly Challenge starts, those are really fun & a good way to meet other people in the forum & get an idea of doing the challenges in a way that feels right to you. They are open to interpretation for how you participate & at the end, you receive a badge for your entry.

Thursday there is a (Group Ritual - Apr 14) :dollar: Thursday Money Magick that you can join whenever you have time throughout the day. Another great way to talk to other members. You don’t have to use tea, you can use whichever beverage you choose.

I look forward to speaking with you in the forum! :infinite_roots:
