Right where I am destined to be!

Merry Meet! I wanted to introduce myself. I am so grateful to be accepted here! :blue_heart: My name is Beth, well my birth name is Elizabeth and everyone calls me Beth. However, I am wanting to rename myself for the sake of my spiritual journey. I live in northern NY, near Canada.

For as long as I can remember I have been interested in learning the craft. A natural calling to learn. Even as a child, I wanted to know everything about nature. I always felt a connection to the woods. In my early teens, I read anything I could off the internet. I just didn’t have the means or the proper guidance. I was given my first tarot deck at age 15. It just comes naturally now. I have picked up a few other decks over the years, including oracle cards and chakra cards. Now that I am an adult, I’m 36, i am able to devote my time to studying to be the witch I am meant to be! I have never felt more fulfilled in my life than when I am chanting at the full moon! This is exactly what I am meant to do!

On this beautiful journey I believe we need friends to guide us along the way. Mine are few and far between. I would LOVE to gain a penpal or 2! We can exchange books, crystals, knowledge. I’m not sure if that’s allowed. I apologize if its not.

I am always open to learning from a teacher if there is anyone willing to offer advice. I can always use guidance.

May you all have a blessed day!

Merry Meet, Beth! My name is Ben. I am from the American Midwest.

I was started learning about witchcraft when I was 15. I didn’t embrace my path until last year - 25 years! :open_mouth: One of the true blessings of this group is we each get to play teacher and student at different moments and to different people. Every person has a unique story to share and knowledge they have gained along their journey. Here we have a safe place to share those stories. :grinning: You have definitely come to the right place.

Spells8 has numerous courses for those with large appetites to learn. :wink: It’s one of the things that attracted me to the site. It also has a section on Tarot Spreads, if you are interested. There is something for everyone in the forums s- if you have any questions feel free to ask. I look forward to learning more about your journey in the future.

Merry Meet Beth! I’m Amethyst, from Southern West Virginia. Welcome to the coven!

I think a lot of us had pagan leanings as a kid. It’s something we’re drawn to. I was fascinated by Greek Mythology myself. Couldn’t get enough of it.

If you’re looking for friendship you’ve come to the right place! Keep an eye on out Activities category here on the forum, there’s always something going on there. On Mondays @TheTravelWitch posts a great newsletter thing called the Merry Meet Monday- Forum News which is great to catch up with what’s going on in the forum and each other’s lives.

Speaking of activities, we just had a challenge where part of it was to find your magical name. The great @MeganB did a post about it that might help you out. It’s here. Then one of the people more knowledgeable than me can help walk through changing your name. LOL.

I hope this helps you as you join the coven! As @Garnet says, if you have a question just ask and someone will help. I look forward to chatting with you soon!

Merry Meet and welcome, Beth! :wave:

Thank you for such a nice introduction, and this was a great idea:

It would be fun to start a witchy swap, sharing books and tools with other members!

Looking forward to seeing you around the Coven! :sparkles:

I’d love that! I have …I really can’t remember the name of them but they’re the oils for dressing candles. I have a box of them that I don’t resonate with and I can’t stand to see them just sit.

Blessings! I really want to find my magickal name. I resonate with dragonflies. In fact 8 believe they are my spirit animal. They seem to follow me. I would like my name to include Dragonfly but it feels like there should be something in front of it. There is so much information here that I get excited and don’t know where to begin! I spend hours learning! I love it! I have found where I belong.

Blessings! I am really interested in doing some kind of exchange. I would even be willing to go first lol. But I am a crafter so I might want to make something special for the person I’m gifting.

Glad you’re happy to be here! Don’t rush so much on your magickal name, it’ll come to you in time. I’m glad you found the courses, and have gotten good information from them. Welcome to the coven!

Welcome to the community Beth. Its a great place to learn and teach. As @praecog29 mentioned, at times we are students and at other times we are teachers. I’ve been on this path almost a year now and know in my heart that I’m in right direction-spiritually…

Blessed be.

Welcome to the Infinite Roots Coven! I absolutely love your enthusiasm- it is such a pleasure to meet you :blush:

Amethyst shared a great recourse about finding your magickal name- and it looks like you already have a direction to go in, following after your spirit animal Dragonfly :sparkles:.
