I was in the process of learning to be a witch and getting ready to fully dedicate myself to my pagan heritage when I became involved with my husband. After the birth of my first child my husband insisted that my children be raised Catholic. I converted to appease him and to learn as much as I could to help raise my children as Catholics. My husband has been useless in this process and I was all in but it never felt right. I recently realized that I had given up a huge part of myself to Catholicism and I was not happy with that. I am returning to my pagan roots and re-learning everything I already had. It’s a frustrating process to re-learn everything because it was forgotten. But I’m here and I feel better every day that I honor this heritage of mine.
Merry Meet, Wendy!!

Its muscle memory! Its never forgotten! What’s within you, is never forgotten.
Merry Meet @wendy8! I had a similar thing happen and came back over the past summer. Re-learning everything is very frustrating. I completely understand. I had been away from it for 20+ years, so I lost A LOT of information. I hope you find this site easy to follow and it’s very helpful. Everyone here is wonderful and supportive of your path. I look forward to speaking with you soon!

Welcome back! I’m Christina, nice to meet you! I think you’ll like it here.
Hello, I am Wendy as well! Do you know you can be a witch and a Catholic? I have several acquaintances who are Christian witches. The Catholic Church celebrated our holy days, their saints, are our Gods and Goddesses (ex. Bridge to Saint Bridget). If you read the series by Ann Moura, The Green Witch (Vol. 1-4), you can see how her family blended the two to be accepted by family and community. Many witches are secular as well as pagan. I share this to show you that you do not have to reject your family. You can do both.
My name is Jeannie, I see your frustrations, when changes can be like a tidel wave! There are so many twist and turns! It’s wonderful you are her in the present with us! At least your claiming your heritage! That represents strength to me! I am so honored and blessed to meet you! I am here for you along with the rest of us!( As above so below) I just had a transition myself! I was Christian for along time and raised Catholic! I knew I didn’t belong! I had different views and my thoughts didn’t always line up with Christian values! Nor was I going to be a disciple!
Today I just hope everyone excepts Me for me! But I am so glad that you found a place where you can grow spiritually together! I am so happy that your in are on spells 8! At least know you will find everything will come back to you like the group mentioned! You will be teaching me a couple things giving me insight I bet! We all are here for each other! Doing devotionals, meditating, grounding ourselves, conjuring up energies, invocations,
“Fill yourself no glowing with energies of the universe. Center the energy given to you. Direct this energy into personal healing, Healing for others or for some other positive goal”, In the book magic cauldron!
Merry meet Merry part
