I have been a practicing pagan for 5 years, but I have practiced alone, without coven. I am opening a shop, and I'll be carrying tarot cards, wiccan jewelery, and other items which will bring other witches into my shop. Here's my problem. I'm afraid I've been alone too long! I'm not sure I'll know how to protect myself from witches who intend harm, and invite friendships with white witches. This is a tough-y for me! I don't want to be so open, that I invite in the wrong kinds of energy, but I don't want to be so closed that I keep potential friends out!

Blessed Be! Your concerns are very close to my heart. Last year I ended 17 years of being in the closet (broomcloset) and opened a small shoppe. Aside from the normal small business concerns, my clients caused much havoc in my life. Daily, prior to entering your store, surround yourself with white light. Place stones of protection at your business door. Meditate on the people you meet. Trust first in yourself. Be strong. I encountered some negative energy but I met some wonderful people. There will be balance.
