I am currently reintiating a long time believe in Wicca. I had allowed my life to interfere with my practice and want to reestablish my connection with the Wiccan path and the Goddess and Gods. I would appriciate any ideas on how to go about meditation, and contacting the Gods, and Godesses to help me in my chosen path of belief and study

Along with Choalayna's technique, I would also recommend "Pagan Ways: Finding Your Spirituality in Nature" bu Gwydion O'Hara. It's primarily aimed at beginners, but I think we're never "too old" for the meditation exercises at the end of each chapter.
Along that same line, I'd say take a day to commune with Nature. Take a walk on the beach, park, or any natural surroundings near your area that you are familiar with. Attune your Mind to the East in the early morning, your Will to the South at high noon, your Heart to the West at dusk, and your whole being to the North at night. If you have an altar at home (or even if you don't!), you can take some time at the end of the day to "center" yourself, to put together the lessons learned during this day...

Thank you so much for some real information. I was considering something like this. I am from Duluth Mn, and was able to commune nature easily there, now I live in a small Tx town and it isn't as easily done. I will certainly take your advice however. Jacque'
