Merry Meet

This blog is a work in progress. Not only am I learning the finer points of earth-based religion and practice, I am also learning how to manage a blog as well.

I decided to start this as an online method of putting together all of the bits and pieces of wisdom I find across the internet and other places. I want a book of shadows that is open to others, in the hopes that not only may I share some knowledge along the way, but I hope to meet others walking similar paths, with similar knowledge to share.

I guess a good place to start is a little introduction. My name is D and I am a….hmm….well, that’s the million dollar question, isn’t it? I know that I have a lot of pagan in me, and I think I am moving in a witchy way. However, I have much deep respect and love for prophets/messiahs of other religions. I was raised Christian and a part of me will never lose my faith in Jesus. So how can I be pagan and Christian?

Darned if I know. Its just what happened, I guess.

Briefly, the way I look at the world is that God is great and mysterious and also not only male. The easiest way to view that is to break God into God and Godess. Jesus, Buddha, Mohammed and the rest were sent here by God/Goddess to help us find our way back to the original Source.

Now, because God and Goddess are infinte, our little human minds need to break them down farther, into a size that we can understand. Hence, the many pantheons of dieties, all with their own attributes and wisdom, but all generated from the same Source. That God/Goddess from which we as well, sparked off from.

So all Gods are one God, and my Goddess is the One as well. And all of us are chips of light from the same source.

Lately I feel a strong pull towards Goddess energy. I want to find a way to relate to the female spirituality that absolutely MUST be there (somewhere!), and in the process maybe learn a little about myself.

Before you run away thinking that this blog is all about religion, I ask you to wait a minute. The religious aspect is given here just to give you, Dear Reader, an idea of how my thoughts work. This blog will have so much more. I am learning much about Wicca and spellcraft and kitchencraft, and I plan to add all that into here. I also will add lots about the various psychic issues I have dealt with and which I am learning about. So please stick around, I promise it will get real good here!

Well, there you have it. I guess that’s a good enough intro as any. Please click on the links to the right to get started reading, and please let me know what you think.

  1. Thanks for an interesting read! I have some wonderful Goddess books listed on my blog and I also work with a Goddess Zodiac oracle deck that I created myself!

    Merry Meet!

  2. I’m learning a lot from this site. Thanks.

  3. Well hi,
    Just stumbled across this site. It’s all very fascinating and encouraging. I am a UK based C of E priest, but I am now a freelance writer and magician (illusionist). I use magical illusions to awaken folk to the reality of the real magic that shimmers through all things. If you check my website (www.magicofsoul.com) you’ll see that my latest book is very ‘Christo-Pagan’. It is called The Path of the Blue Raven and tells the tale of my own journey into Druidry.

    Hope we can chat.

  4. I once walked the Christian Path, but now I walk the Pagan Path. For me, the Christian Path was leading to nowhere. The Pagan Path that I am now on will lead me to many worlds and lives. I came from a life into this life and I will go into another life after I leave this life. I now have a direction, not confusion. I’m proud to be walking the Pagan Path.

  5. what’s crazy is you sound soo much like me! Grew up Christian and finally just recently, after 10 years of just being nothing, i realized i’m totally wiccan! great site! blessed be on your path!

  6. Sooooo good to see you again.

  7. Greetings,
    just found you through twitter, I’m new to that… We are in the founding stages of the creation of “The Black Hat Society” and are looking to promote the site the best we can. This will be an international organization for all those who follow the paths of truth and light. Please visit and join the mailing list.
    Blessed be

  8. Hi. I stumbled upon your blog while searching for the Blessing of Book of Shadows by Silver Ravenwolf. Like you I was also raised as a Christian, a Catholic to be more specific. I am also trying to find a reason why the Wiccan path called me, hopefully I’ll know the reason soon. I’ve been learning a lot from books and things I find online, and know I’ll bookmark your blog and read it from time to time.

    Blessed be.

  9. The Goddess is the Great Mother of all, and she is infinite.

  10. I stumbled upon your site in a Google search & I have to say that I found myself very much relating to you and your path.

    I grew up in Catholic school for 8yrs where I never felt like I fit in. I did raise my children Catholic for their entire childhood because the Church was changing some of their teachings at that time (ie: that God loves all, forgives all and is not to be feared). However, the teachings & changes still just didn’t jive with me so we went without a formal Religion for years. That is until the Religious Ed Director of our previous church, who had dedicated her life to the Catholic Church (even joined the Convent for a time) had decided to complete her Doctrine in the Metaphysical at the age of 67.

    She began to teach me things that actually made sense to me and it felt refreshing! I was like a sponge! I wanted to know more, experience more and that is how I was led to this path. Once I found this path, my life improved tenfold, but then I endured some health issues (3, one right after the other), that struggling through a very difficult divorce of (now) 3 years and I kinda lost my faith for a lil bit while I sorted out the old teachings in my head and the new that lie ahead.

    I am happy to say that I am back on my path and I have that renewed feeling all over again. I am happy and light of heart and my outlook is brighter. So knowing the difference I feel in myself just proves that this is my chosen path and I am very excited about it.

    I am definitely going to bookmark your page and I am glad to have stumbled upon it (there is a reason for everything, now isn’t there?)

    Bright Blessings~

  11. So glad to come across your site. I to was raised a Christian & am trying to blend my belief in Jesus with my study of earth based religion. Blessings to you.

  12. Daughter of the Moon,

    I found your site by accident while researching scent meanings thru Google. Thank you for being here.

    It is interesting how often the theme of leaving or supplementing Christianity comes up when cruising the net. Most of us born in Europe or the Americas were raised Christian. It is important to us as individuals to know we are not alone in our search for a truer meaning then is found in organized monotheism.

    I struggled with religious doubts while serving overseas and witnessing mans inhumanity to man first hand.

    My journey started with an introduction to the Tao (Way) of Lao-Tzu while in the Navy, then study of western philosophy and ethics in college, till finally returning to the Tao to learn how to live in order that you might find your own Way.

    I studied eastern religions then Wicca before finally finding peace with a form of life based spiritualism. By that I mean I celebrate the spirit inherent in all living things and the ecosystem that creates and supports them. With minor adjustments to reflect my being a Pagan Wizard (or Shaman) rather than a Wiccan Witch, I strive to adhere to the 13 Goals of Scott Cunningham.

    I continue to find my Way, one day at a time, using the joy of solitude of my current life to read and think and write in hopes that my spirit will strengthen and maybe even discover some small wisdom for other spirits to draw on.

    I read your Thoughts on Loneliness. I hope you have found a way to relieve it with the joy and companionship of your family.

    I will visit again.

    Merry Meet!

    Right now I am going thru the same thing. I don’t feel that christainty is fully for me there are a lot of things I do not agree with, but some I do. I have always been drawn to wicca in my short life. So it is amazing to read the thoughts of someone who feels alot like me. Thank you for putting this up!
