Some people go their entire lifetime and never pick a single spiritual base. By all means study, but don't limit yourself. If you have to force it, it may not be right for you. I once actually considered myself a Christian, but my interest and beliefs changed. Who knows, they may again. I might someday feel drawn to Buddhism, or Catholicism, or Voodoo. More often than not, in a mature and intelligent person, your faith and beliefs change and mature as you do. It is perfectly acceptable to draw what you consider the best aspects of any and all religions that appeal to you, and make them a part of your life and faith. Tread your own road, so to speak.
I do wish you the best of luck on your spiritual path!

I've been studying Wicca for the past 2 years. I'm 15 now, and have just committed to it a few nights ago with a little ritual. But, I'm so tired of borrowing my friends spell books and candles and such. My parents found out I was studying Wicca yet they are so afraid to let me buy spell books and candles. I'm not going to curse them, I love my parents to death. But I guess they just don't see that. I just think they're afraid that i actually committed to one of the religions i have tried. I really wonder if they're afraid of what power i have. I mean my friends are Wicca. They helped me out, well this year anyways. Before march of this year i was on my own studying Wicca. But now i have my friends who can help me, but they have to keep it a secret. Which i mean it really sucks for them, because my one friend's family is all witness stuff and they're totally into it. But, my point is...How can i get my parents to start letting me have more freedom of what i choose to do? and how can I help my friend out with letting her parents know that she doesn't want to be a witness?
PS- If anyone knows anything about alchemy, could you tell me please? Thank-You

However my main question is when do you know you are a Wiccan?
if you have plenty of anal lube then you are there!

By alchemy, do you mean Hermetics?

I like many others would love to hear you define the two? As well as describe the difference between the two.

It draws me to the difference between the words ascent and consent. There is a major difference. I am waiting with baited breath for the difference between Alchemy and Hermetics?

Please?

Before you even think of it, my face has been cut. My hand has been burn't. I have experienced a kiss on the cheek. I know your mistress, and you are just going to have to live with my questions. It is a "Goodly" thing.

I would like a more revealing photo. You mentioned you have a nice butt.

It was just a question of clarification. Don't know what the heck else you are talking about.

I'm 20 and still stuck in the broom closet cause I'm living at home while I'm at community college. My father works at a seminary (where they teach people to be pastors and stuff) and my mother is a pastor at her church.
I found wicca (honestly I heard about it first on Scooby Doo and then looked it up and found what it really was), and got some books out of the library when I was about 14. My parents found them and Mom started crying and Dad got really quiet and asked me why I was damning my soul. They were going to throw out the books until I pointed out that they were public property and even if they felt it was wrong it was was illegal for them to do so.
I have my wicca stuff hidden all over my room, and I'm lucky that they let me have Harry Potter stuff and just write most of my wicca stuff (my wand for example) as just Harry Potter fangirliness.
It's really depressing though, being a witch in a family that's so involved with church that God is every other conversation. My father knows about wicca and alternates between patronizing "they think they can fly" attitude and "they're selling their souls and don't know it".*sigh*
My sister is also seriously considering becoming a Catholic nun. I am so much the black sheep in the family I might as well be a llama.

Probably better being a llama in their eyes. Play along with them as best you can. You'll be on your own soon and they mean well. They were all indoctrinated, and that's a tough rut to break out of. Congrats on seeing the light out of that tunnel at such a young age... especially in lieu of all the dogma you're constantly surrounded with. Stop by here whenever you feel the need. Also you might want to check out Celtic Connection. http://wicca.com/forums/index.php . They're very good in answering questions and have more serious discussions going on than we normally have here. There's a lot of people your age there that are also seeking guidance. Good luck and be blessed.

You have made the first steps in your quest for self discovery, take your time and learn as much as you can.
Ultimately Wicca might prove to be just a gateway to something you yet know nothing of, something that is unique to you.
Respect the fact that your parents are what and who they are, eventually there will come a time when you are a little older and more experienced that hopefully they will respect you in the same manner.
Whatever happens you must always be true to your own feelings like many here have been before you, good luck and be forgiving!

You have decided christianity is not for you. But before committing to any path you should explore all paths to find the one that best reflects who you are and not to follow a trend... You are obviously falling under the "Pagan" influence, which as I am sure you know is an "Earth Based" religion, which Wicca falls under. If you are not aware, there are several paths other than Wicca that fall under the Pagan Umbrella. One in particular, I encourage you to explore is Pantheism. "The World Pantheist Movement" is an organization that welcomes and educates like non other I have ever seen. Just go to, Pantheism:the World Pantheist Movement and see what you think.

Sometimes, you can never really be completely out of the broom closet to keep family peace. My mother is a widow in her mid 80's, and a devout Catholic. I just never bring up religion with her if I can help it. I'd just rather have a relationship with her in her old age than get into a big drama.

I don't know where you live, but you should consider finding an apartment with a friend or getting a small efficiency as soon as you can. Yes, living rent free while going to college is wonderful, but you are paying for it in other ways. You're an adult - over 18 - and have the right to worship what and how you like, but it's up to you to decide what sacrifices you're willing to make to exercise that right. I don't know what your major is; hopefully you'll find a good-paying job in your chosen field right after graduation, and can move out.

I'm fourteen years old and i've been studying wicca for about a year now ever since i heard about it on a trip to Salem, Mass. I think it is really interesting, has better morals then Christianity and some other faiths, and i'm even doing a project on in school about it and tolerance of it. To me, the whole faith makes a lot more sense than christianity does.
I was never brought up with any religion growing up because my family never thought of religion as that much of a neccesity in life. I have been calling myself an atheist for a while now, but i kind of want to practice Wicca,((with of course, a lot more studies on it :])) but don't know if i'm ready to actually ..believe in something, because i've never actually believed in anything before to an extent in my entire life. Well, i already believe ((and kinda always have)) in Reancarnation, which i read is what pagans and wiccans believe happens after death.
So, what should i do?

Hi, Lauren
My advice is to just keep reading and studying everything. There is no pressure on you to choose a spiritual path right away. Believe what feels right in your heart.
