Just joined, and I’m really excited about this!
My name is Eleonora (Ellie in short), I’m 34 and I live in London.
I was born in Rome, Italy and I’ve been walking this Path since I was 8 - so more or less 26 years now.
I was raised in quite a strict Christian family, going to see the Pope every Sunday and having my bedtime stories read from the Bible.
This helped me asking the right questions since I was a child, and also gave me the knowledge to understand how everything is connected.
My family wasn’t happy, of course, but I was a solitary child and this helped me a lot with my studies.
When I started internet was a quieter place, and basically if you wanted to know something there was only a place to be: the library.
I’ve started reading about other religions, then found small books on Celtic studies and lore and the only book I could find at the time on witchcraft, the Scott Cunningham’s book on Wicca.
I realized I’ve found what I was looking for, but again I was only a child in a really catholic city, so wasn’t easy for me to find more information on the subject.
When I was 16 I first moved out of my house and start traveling… Europe, UK, Ireland, Australia and everywhere I went was an amazing discovery of cultures and folklore, legends and stories.
I bought more books than I can think of, and I came back with more information and knowledge I will ever be able to use
I’ve never stopped learning, and was actually until my 20 that I started actively practicing spell work and potion making.
I love history, candle magick and oil crafting. I create my own tea blends. I do Reiki, crystal energy healing, tarot and runes (just started on this last month)
I can be a b***h if you are ignorant and think you are right, and a darling if you don’t know something and are actually ready to listen to a different idea than yours… and if you want to teach me something I don’t know - which is loads!!
My biggest dream is to join a real Coven, but I’m really shy so I’ve never been to a gathering or an open day kind of thing.
I’ve never been in a witchy forum before! I’ve lately joined some groups on Facebook, but maybe I’m unlucky 'cause, let’s put this in a nice way, they weren’t what I was looking for… Unfortunately.
I feel this could be the right place to meet really interesting people!
Much love and light to you all
