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!

I agree with Moondog. I too am a solitary without a lot of contact with other witches. I am estatic that you are opening your own shop. I find, when working with others who drift towards the more pagan practices, that they are just like anyone else. If they give you a creepy feeling, they're problebly creepy. Just keep an open mind, and be your self. trust your gut feelings, and concentrate on keeping your lower three chakras open. This will help because they are the seat of your intuition.
