Hey, everyone! I’m Wade, a 25-year-old trying to find his Way in rural Ohio. I’ve been lurking here for a few weeks, and have finally decided to take the plunge and become a more active member of the Spells 8 community.
I’m still VERY new to my exploration of Witchcraft and Earth-based spirituality. Even though I grew up in a relatively Christian household, it never really sat well with me (although, I have nothing against it), and once I discovered Witchcraft and Wicca (and Paganism in general), it instantly became clear why: I’ve always had much more Pagan-oriented spiritual beliefs.
While at the moment I tend to identify as a more Wicca-leaning eclectic Kitchen Witch, I am keeping an open heart and mind because I want to learn about everything life and the Universe has to offer – I don’t want to limit myself in any way.
My goal here is to learn as much as possible and to potentially connect with people who share similar (and different!) ideas and beliefs. I’m not currently out of the “Broom Closet” – or the “Closet” Closet for that matter. Well, actually, I’m out to my friends, but I haven’t come out of either of those closets with any of my family members yet. I’ve found it fascinating and encouraging that so many people in the Witchcraft and Wicca/Pagan communities are either members of the LGBTQIA+ communities themselves, or very LGBTQIA+ friendly.
Hopefully, I haven’t rambled too much – something I tend to do quite often
I hope you all are doing well and staying safe and happy. I look forward to interacting with and meeting y’all!
