I'm 13 years old and Wicca has drawn me in like no other religion I have down a few bits of practice here and there but I am scared that I am going to attracte dark or bad things for example bad spirits. This keeps on worrying me and I don't know what to do

When I was a child I had many dreams and unusual occurances that I never fully understood. To my mothers dismay I was always barefoot (I still love being connected to the earth like this) dancing, often naked, strong willed, and loved being amongst nature, the moonlight, stars, water and having complete freedom any time day or night. It was only later in life when I discovered books on spirituality, and material on the invisible world that I'd always felt connected to, and was more real to me, than the world we live in. I have only recently started reading about Wicca, The Book of Shadows, by Phyllis, yet I recognise it. This is natural for me and I would love to be guided to find a group in my area of the world.

I realized that these were words to describe feelings and experiences that I already had as a natural part of my day. I think we often become intimidated by words and concepts that have been portrayed as foreign or even laughable by the dominant culture...

Thank you Phyllis for your courageous, inspirational and wise spirit. Your books taught me how to respond to the voice in my soul. Yes, over the years, I have learned that I am the sacred space...the sacred creation. Blessed Be )O(

I used to be a witch, I grew up with ritual magic as part of my family, and since Ive "practiced" both "white" magic and "black" magic..I can tell you that there is no difference btwn the two and that many of you may mean well and start off with the best intentions, but you have no idea what you're dabbling with. It may feel good now, but trust, that the "daemons" are one stop ahead of your feeble, human minds, and they are munching on your souls in hades:) Thank you Phyllis, for adding more suckers to the line...

I remember the day I saw Book of Shadows on the shelf in Barnes & Noble. I had bounced around churches for several years as a teen, trying to fit in with my friends and their 'thing' but it never quite fit. It felt like there was a piece missing. I read this book and I knew that I had found my thing. I am a witch, I am the goddess, I am her child, I am the mother, and the crone. I am all parts of me I don't even know yet. And I am so glad we live in an age that we can share these ideas and these practices with each other. There may still be persecution, but it comes from fear and these days we have a stronger voice than ever before to teach, to communicate, to help dissipate that fear and encourage community and spiritual tolerance. Thanks Phyllis, I have never met you, I may never meet you in this life, but you are a kindred spirit and I honor you for that. Blessed Be.

In 1999. I was very unsatified with my experiances with the religion I was part of. I belonged to a book clubcalled "One Spirit" I did not care for the monthly selection that was offered soI looked through the catalog. I spotted anoffering called "Bookof Shadows" I had been attracted by Witchcraft for many years. I ordered the book and when it came I sat down and read it at one setting. I decided I would investigate more. There was a local store called Crone's Cupboard. I took my year and a day and was iniated into The First Degree" Iam not asactive as I was but I ama Wicca or as I prefer a Witch. Oh and I'm 71

I recognize the presence of God/dess through all things because I feel the presence now. That's how I worship them- that which is inside me and that which is in the external world. I used to question the concept of "opening" myself because it just seemed to be too New Age, too contrite, to silly. When I was in seminary I spent a lot of time going to the place of Deep-In Dwelling, and I was pretty smug about worshiping the Creator- but not the creation- and I now know that's a denial of what has been created and given to us as a gift. I cannot see God/dess without looking at the things around me, and I cannot see the beauty in my Life and the World without seeing the Creative Source also. "Opening" is simply dropping the mask, the boundaries and the pretense and being a naked spirit.

Why worship the earth and it's beauty when you can worship the One who created it?

Absolutely, I used to think it was very odd and even scary when people talked about things like "spirit", energies and chakras. Eventually, I realized that these were words to describe feelings and experiences that I already had as a natural part of my day. I think we often become intimidated by words and concepts that have been portrayed as foreign or even laughable by the dominant culture. But like Phyllis, I felt called to explore and stuck with it and the understanding unfolded in a way I could never have imagined!

100 percent. I used to be that guy that never believed anyones calling or transformation. I thought it was you either A. waking up one day and deciding that you heard god, when actually you had bad indegestion or B. it was a ploy for money. Now that I have my own awakening of sorts, I don't feel that way. I am genuinely inspired by videos that involve men and women like this, because it really is a beautiful thing to have this happen to you. Millions upon millions of people walk the earth daily and will never allow themselves that opportunity. So at one time I questioned and mocked everyone or anything having to do with any kind of faith, belief, system, etc I cherish that I am allowed to see and hear that person.
