New to the site but not the life

Good day, all I’m Charlaine from Washington state. While new to the site I’ve been on my journey for a few years. Sadly my alter and everything was destroyed last year when a wildfire blew through the town I was living in far too fast for me to gather anything. My home along with much of the town was lost. The high priestess I was learning from sadly had to move away and we are no longer in communication. I’ve been a self practioner for some time now and am trying to finally rebuild my Grimmore and everything else. That’s how I came to find the site. Due to medical issues I have a hard time writing for printable pages that are decent mean a great deal to me. In time i’m hoping to have things back to where they were before the wildfires. As i begin to practise again. Thank you all in advance for support and understanding.

Hiya @charlaine,

A very warm welcome to you from Perth, Australia. So happy to have you here with us and that you have reached out to the coven.

I am so sorry to hear that you suffered such a tragedy and you lost your home along with so many of your treasured possessions. My heart goes out to you and all those in your town that were affected. Sending you so much love and light to you all as you try to rebuild and start afresh in life. I have seen the devastation of a wildfire, here in Australia they’re more commonly called bushfires, they are merciless in a lot of ways, but the beauty of the new life that comes after the devastation is always a miraculous thing to behold, truly Mother Earth healing herself.

I’m so sorry to hear that you are suffering on going medical issues that make adding to your Book of Shadows a little more difficult. I know a lot of people in the coven can understand that battle of medical issues and a lot of people will know exactly where you are coming from. I myself have taken full advantage of the printable pages. You’ve actually just inspired me with a thought to plant a tree in honor of my BoS.

I promise you that you have come to the right place. You will meet some of the most amazing people. I have been lucky enough to make some truly wonderful friends.

If you ever have any questions, please just reach out here and someone will get back to you as soon as they can.

Looking forward to getting to know you and learning so much from you too,

Jess

I’m so sorry to hear about the tragedy that took your home last year. I am, however, very glad that you are safe! :heart: Thank you for sharing your lovely introduction and I want you to know that you are very welcome here in the forum :infinite_roots:

You mentioned printable pages, so you may have already found them, but just in case- the Printable Pages Collection and BoS Divider Pages really are great for building a sacred book! :open_book: :sparkles:

You are warmly invited to join any activities or discussions you come across- please make yourself at home here! And if you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out :blush:

Looking forward to talking with you more soon- Blessed be!

Dearest Charlaine,
It is we who are blessed by your presence. We welcome you with love and understanding.
Sometimes it’s the smallest loss we feel most profoundly.
Here, at Infinite Roots Coven you will find a growing group of like minded people literally from all around the world.
One of the best things about this site is the support and encouragement we give each other. As such we welcome you as a new member to our family.
You may find that replacing some of your precious papers can not be recovered but can somewhat replaced.
Francisco (He is our GURU, he’ll laugh about that.)has made this site people friendly (Which is great since I can be cpu challenged.)
You can start at the beginning on the lessons page. There are so many downloads for spells and general information, your BOS and Grimoire will take shape in no time. It won’t be the same, but will become wholly yours when you tweak and add to it.
Be bless, be safe and know you be loved.
Garnet
