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?

Merry Meet Anon...I'm sure that how you feel is just the beginning to a world of learning and growth. If you feel that you're missing something, then you are. I always felt that way...not that I didn't belong, but that there had to be "more" out there. I've never had a bad experience with the church or Christianity, but I've seen too many so called "Christians" lie, cheat, steal, do imoral acts. There have been wars faught in the name of Christianity...it would seem to me that humans are missing the point. I believe that we're all spiritual beings having a human experience. When you think about what's in the Bible, it urges you to be dependent on a higher power. Well, I truly believe that much of that book is missing...it was reconsctucted by King James to suite his own path. What they're NOT telling you is that GOD (or whatever you call your higher power) has givin us all the capacity to be independent. We're all healers...we're all seers...we're all able to see the past, present and future. You just have to develop these gifts..and they are gifts. Most people discount the most basic of these...intuition...as just coincidence...It's a Spirit given power...use it. When your kids fall and hurt themselves, where do they go...to their Mothers who have healing hands...use them. Have you ever had a dream and it came true..remember your dreams. The more aware you are of everything around you, the more power you have to change the negative aspects of your life. There's so much more to be said...Find a good book and read it...practice your healing touch..be aware of your own personal power. Merry Part, Stargazer44_99@yahoo.com
