Hello Everyone

I made a decision to seek out a forum, because now feels the right time to join with others on this path.

I'd say I have been on 'a' path since I was young, but just never knew exactly what it was. I have always been alert and sensitive to my physical surroundings and those around me since I was a child, but it was only through my learning of the tarot fourteen years ago, that I became more open to it's uses. I now see my compassion for others as a gift, but something I must continually work at.

I enjoy to walk amongst nature, never feeling alone with the trees, birds or rain. In recent times, I have read more about both witchcraft and wicca, finding the story of the sabbats beautiful; and now, I want to immerse myself in them as the wheel turns. Yule will be my first real festival for celebration. As I say, now seems the right time to bring everything together.

But I am still very new to this. I want to take this new journey slowly and appreciate every detail. I want to really 'live' the seasons and look around me with open eyes at the world and what I can do to influence it for the better (I believe that the best first step to help change the world is to change oneself for the better).

For the moment, I am reading books from my shelf. I own the 'solitary practitioner' book by Cunningham, which I have had for some years, and was recently gifted a book called 'Solitary Wicca for Life' from a friend. I am expecting some cards to inspire me on my journey also. But generally, I am trying to live each moment with good intent and am currently thankful for the wonderful changes in life that have been bestowed on me. I am thanking the god and goddess in my thoughts and through my actions.

Does this sound like the right first steps to be taking? I don't want to get involved in too heavy rituals or spellwork just yet; with little knowledge, I think they will not hold so much meaning for me at this early stage.

Any tips about where I might be going wrong or what else I could do would be greatly appreciated.

Yours kindly
Pien Opi Koko

Welcome! Your journey sounds very exciting...its sounds as though you have put much thought into traveling on a new path. One that many of us share : ) I would encourage you to listen to your heart, listen to the trees, feel the pull of Mother Earth, and the guidance of the Goddess. I would also keep a journal of your adventure. There is so much to discover...

Hi Pien. Take some time and read the posts in the Wicca and Pagan threads here. Lots of good, robust discussions to consider :D
