Since my teens i always wondered about it. But never had anyone to learn from or to support the different way of thinking. But 2 years a good friend of my wife sparked the idea again. My wife also wanted to learn that was a great set up. But my wifes friend had issues of her own and she disappeared as quick as she came in to our lives. I was 38 years old when I first started to learn so that's 38 years of more traditional stuff that has to be worked with. But my mind is always open. I am 40 now i really want to learn more. Guess that's why I'm here.

Asatru as far as I know wants you to be asatru only ~ I guess christians are the same way ~ I don't like to be tied to anything as I tend to get around

My path to syncretic Neo-Paganism was a slow one, I decided to be a Neo-Pagan at age 14 by my path there took place earlier because I was taught stories about Germanic and Slavic myth as well as from Greece. Slavic mythology was told to me as I asked about what the Slavs were because my last name is Slavic so I learned about their cosmology, Baba Yaga, and the crusades against the Slavs and other conversions. I was told these stories because my parents thought stories were important as stories and they never enforced any religion onto me so I could choose on my own. As a result of hearing these stories though I didn't really believe in the deities emotionally I felt them sacred so at first I started more as an "Atheo-Pagan" and for many years I slowly learned more about Germanic and Slavic paganism but only slowly because I was concerned with my work as a Highschooler dealing with my special needs and trying to figure somethings out. Then after Highschool I noticed I had a lot more free time even as a community college student with a part time job that I can catch up on what I missed having missed a lot. I then realized that I am less of an Atheo-Pagan and more of a Neo-Pagan because that is how I feel, I felt that paganism was sacred to me because of what it teaches so I knew through this feeling that I very much believed in the gods. As of early 2021 I began to actually practice my beliefs so only recently over this seven year journey, I am a syncretic of Germanic and Slavic pagansim who also worships Athena(My dad is a giant fan of Athena even though he's an atheist).

okay I found a better link that isn't poisoned with too much politics and personal opinions ~ maybe I was just looking at the wrong asatru group

When I was on my path I was drawn to Runes, and then everything kind've fell into place.

I guess you could say this.

I was raised in a strict Irish Catholic household. I was made to believe I was put into this world to suffer and pay for my sins.

I kept a close relationship with the lord, but I slowly started drifting away from the Catholic church myself.

I have a close connection with the lord, I truly do, but I noticed my beliefs started branching out to different realms.

I was invited to a Hare Krishna temple in Boston. I was exposed to different religions and realized my fear was over nothing. The people welcomed me with open arms. This was around 18 years old.

The largest thing for me was the idea of the karmics and twin flames, and reincarnation of souls. That does not belong to the Bible, but I've had way too many coincidences to explain off what I felt. I knew I met my twin flame, and you know it when you do.

Bumping into a woman multiple times in my life at grocery stores and coffee shops. Not being able to escape our presence. Feeling like we've known each other for our entire lives without even saying a word. She moved next door to my grandmother's childhood home. We drove the same model car and liked the same music.

Every time her presence became near, I would look at the clock and it would always be angel numbers. Especially 11:11. I'd have dreams about this woman before even meeting her. I really don't make this up.

We had our separation to, and for some reason when we were separated, it felt like I had grown closer to her. We were communicating the entire time, even though we were separated.

I began very interested in Celtic traditions. I'm not going to call myself a devout pagan. I still celebrate Catholic holidays. I still have a close relationship and pray to the lord. I do believe that the teachings of the church are somewhat limited.

When it comes to paganism. It's not that I became a pagan. I was already practicing a lot of pagan and Hindu beliefs and I didn't know it. Pagan culture is just very spiritual, and it gave me a connection to my universe that the church could not.
