Pagan, the simple definition is having a deep connection to nature and her energies; everything has energy whether it’s good or bad, plants and animals. This small bit of information is what led me to be the person I am today. I am not definite in my path; in fact I am new to the path, so I am still growing, researching and exploring. Through this blog I hope to share my knowledge and experiences with the readers. This never ending search of knowledge which can be found on the internet but primarily through books and within me. I hope to learn more about mythology in general; Celtic, Greek and Native American. I do not yet know what deities I follow but this will come in time. What I do know is that I believe crystals and minerals hold special metaphysical properties that may aid in spiritual and emotional balance day to day. I have a prominent Native American background in which I find much of my strength through my ancestors. Due to this I believe in reincarnation and that all life is to be respected. When we eat an animal or plant, or take anything from it, we thank the being for its gift, which sustains our own life. A brief background, I grew up in Pentecostal churches but also attended Methodist, Catholic and nondenominational churches throughout my life and I always felt out of place in one way or another. I sometimes felt the negativity people brought in with them and over time there were fewer and fewer positive beings, so I stopped attending, I felt uncomfortable and weighted down when I left, instead of uplifted. Looking back I always felt more at home in the woods, I found peace there and it’s obvious that my true happiness is within the bosom of our earth mother, comforting and knowledgeable. Ending on a positive beat, we all have the power to choose our mood and be happy. Karma is real and I choose to be genuine and help someone everyday with the gift of a laugh, a smile or a simple act of kindness. In reality kindness is a way of life which I hope is contagious and in some small way we can all change the world, one positive act at a time.
Merry Meet! I am Cara Darkthorn the High Priestess of this coven. I am a hereditary Wiccan. At the young age of ten my mother introduced me to the world she had been studying and living in. I gladly accepted it as my path of life. I am now 25 years old and have been practicing ever since. My beliefs run wide and while I’ve been on this path for 15 years I am still learning. I believe that the learning never stops. We hit points in our lives that we feel we’ve learned everything, then something new comes and blows you down that path. I primarily focus on Greek and Norse mythologies, but would one day love to learn of all different pantheons. Athena is my patron goddess, as I value wisdom, and creativity above all else. I hope you enjoy learning more about me and the others throught our journey here.
Hello, I’m Shayde. I’m 26 years old and a mother of one. My beliefs follow a more Celtic aspect, although I have been self taught through many books, websites, and my own intuition, so there are many influences. I’ve spent time looking at other religions as well, Abrahamic, Middle Eastern, and Asian philosophies. I find value and growth through exploring the possibilities and beliefs held by others. We are meant to grow spiritually and in this world we are all explorers in a vast forest. None of us have it all figured out but we can learn from one another. Many paths, one forest.
