I have been christian all my life. I have been taught all the "don't" and "do's". I have been scared out of asking the "why's" and trained in hiding from the "witch's". But I guess with time and maturity you want to look for understanding.
I have been told by serval different mediums that I am very spritual, but with christianity I do not see that. I have had my fortune done, numbers done, astrology done, and all have said the same thing...but I can not see it, some times I feel it (if that makes sense?!)
I am sure that you have had alot of Chirstian's challenge you and that is not my intent, so please do not take this as another chirstian pushing their beliefs. While I do believe in God and that goes with that, I feel that there is more out there. That there is somehting else that I belong with but I do not know what it is.....
Ok now that I am sounding cazy, even to myself. I will ask my question. What is Wicca? (I know what I have been told by the church but what is it to you?) How do you know that you belong? What all is involved with Wicca? and finally Is it something that can call you?

By all means yes! If you feel the call to expand your mind, no matter where it is coming from, you should seek out the oppurtunity. Your subconsious is telling you something and that, my dear, you should definetly listen to.
Wicca, to be very vague (as there is more to explain than space on this page) is an Earth religion. We believe in one supreme deity divided into two bodies ,a God and a Goddess. The God creates life within the Goddess, and the Goddess births it. This is easier to imagine for humans because each of us has male and female characteristics. We believe that there is no absolute heaven or hell, because if there is a bit of good and a bit of bad in everything, there can be no place of perfect good or perfect evil. Instead of that system of belief we opt for reincarnation and karma, saying that you are responsible for your own actions and whatever you do comes back to you, good or bad.
One last thing, that I think may interest you very much. Wiccan's also follow the mindset that everyone has "psychic" ability. It has been proven that plants have got it (legitimatly), so why not humans:) It is thought that there is a collective subconcious from which passing information feeds. This is where your dreams come from..it is how all of us are connected. Wiccans, and a variety of other faiths, tap into this through meditation and focus.
....I was a christian once....and I know of the hole that you are talking about. I don't want to preach, or push my faith on you...but I feel one-ness. I was called to Wicca, and I fell in love with it. Now when I feel empty or low, the Gods really do make me feel safe and loved. If you really are having these feelings, at least research..I have a feeling you will like what you find...at the very least you will find it intriguing:) Blessed be!
