I know some of us have memories from our Otherborn/Otherkin selves of past lives. Some of those memories involve religion. My most vivid memories were of a lifetime when I was a Winged Elf. In that society, I filled the role of a healer/priestess. I worked with herbs, medicines, salves, tinctures, etc. I also worked with prayer, ritual, offerings, and honoring of our Gods. The more I examine my current Pagan practice as a Hedgewitch, the more I notice that things I remember from "then" seem to bleed over into "now". I still prefer working with herbs, roots, etc. I still like to be in an altered, ecstatic state when I perform ritual. I still work with cthonic energies and like to feel the pulse of the Earth I'm on. The Gods I honor are very based in plants and animals. Does anyone else find that religious or spiritual overtones kind of leak through?
Hello. I am Ben Miller-Kilgore, and have recently begun to study magick. I have no problem with magick itself, in spite of my own beliefs about Jesus and God etc., but feel guilty for practicing Wicca while still worshiping a deity that inspired it's people to oppress witches for the longest time, and was wondering if there are any other people out there that could offer some advice.
Yule, Christmas, Hanukah, Kwanzaa, and various other holidays and New Years are upon us this winter. What do you celebrate, and how? I've always celebrated Christmas with my family, since it's what I grew up celebrating. Christmas tree, lights, traditional stuff and all that. Christmas eve is spent with @pastrybears , and Christmas day with one side of my family. I've also begun celebrating Yule a little, mostly on my own. I used to really think I was a Celtic Reconstructionist, but now I'm discovering that I identify more with a Druid path, which as opened me up to new ways of worship and thinking. Because I'm still "in the broomcloset" with both my witchcraft and my religion, I find solace in the subtler ways of worship, like taking a nature walk, and making little crafts from things I find. I'm thinking of making a birdseed bagel, since the weather is unusually warm this year, and there may be a few more birds around. Although I'm an ethnic Jew, I never grew up celebrating Hanukah, but I'd like to try someday.
