Merry Meet :)))
I get lots of emails from all of you and messages on Facebook. One of the questions I get asked the most, is what should you be studying? Most of us grew up in a society where organized religion was the norm, and many of these religions had structures for you to follow. Part of what I love about Wicca, is that it doesn’t.
Wicca is a very eclectic religion and it is much about finding yourself and your personal path. That being said, what might be right for one person to explore and study, is not necessarily right for the next person. I always recommend reading and taking classes as those are pretty obvious places to gather information, but when you do so, read and take those classes that appeal to you. Don’t worry about how they fit into your being Wiccan and your path, for what may seem chaotic and unorganized if you’re going in many directions like I typically do, you would be amazed to find out how it all comes together like pieces in a puzzle down the line. I love those “aha!” moments I have as work over the years will all of a sudden come together in a concept that makes complete sense to me and helps me in my path.
I always suggest going to a bookstore and perusing the New Age section. Where I am, I frequent Barnes and Noble and am known to spend many hours there surrounded by stacks of books with a Macchiato tucked into one of those giant squishy chairs. Every time I do this, I read what is meant for me at that time. I look at the books and see what “calls to me” on that particular day, and it no longer surprises me when I find myself nodding my head, knowing that what I am reading is in fact a message from my guides to help me on my path.
You can also do this with art. Look on photo sites such as pinterest, 500px, tumblr etc and make note or pin those pictures that interest you. Before long you will have a collection going and it may just provide the inspiration you need to research that next subject on your path. For instance if you have a lot of fairies, perhaps you next want to look into the fae, or if you find yourself collecting and being drawn to Egyptian pictures, maybe it’s time to peruse the history of Egypt and some Egyptian deities. Your guides are always there to help you and give you the clues on where you need to go next.
We are all one, yet we are all unique. Honor what makes you an amazingly beautiful person, and follow your personal path for it is there you will find yourself and the Magic of this wondrous world we live in. <3
Much Love and Many Blessings,
