How do you keep 'Pagan'?


I mean, how do you not just fall into autopilot about life? For example, many Christians attend church every week. It's very easy for that to be on there minds on a regular basis.

How do you "be Pagan" on a regular basis - especially for those who are solitary? And not just those that are well defined Pagans here. How do you keep to your spiritual ways, whatever they are?

Me? I don't...

Sigh. Need inspiration! I'm not a ritual person but I'm so busy these days and the weather is crumby so I don't even sit in relax in nature all that often. I'm feeling disconnected!

Every single [sign in to see URL] fail, I 'talk' to my Goddess, my Spirit guide and [sign in to see URL] thank them for my blessings..

And [sign in to see URL] make it a point to see something beautiful, be it a flower, tree, [sign in to see URL] even lizard, sunset, sunrise, the faces of people I [sign in to see URL]. I stop, and really [sign in to see URL] thank the Goddess for that moment in time when I was allowed to look upon one of her many gifts... emoticon

Re: How do you keep 'Pagan'?


Texas, I'm kind of where you are, at the moment. Since our classes stopped and our coven disbanned, it's like I'm lost all over again.

I've not spent nearly as much time outdoors this past year as I usually do and I think I'm feeling that loss some, as well.

Not totally sure how to get back to a good point. emoticon

Queeny, I think that might be one of the downsides of an atheistic [sign in to see URL]'s no one to talk [sign in to see URL] myself! emoticon Having someone to listen would certainly help me be connected.

I like your second thought though - find something beautiful every day. I will work on that!

Saijen, this has been mentioned here [sign in to see URL] coven! I have NO idea how to pull it off, but if in someway we could all inspire each other, it would be great. I don't care if it's learning specific Wicca things or what. In fact, it would be great to be super eclectic and let each of us teach other our own paths. Could be very mind opening! How the heck do we do it?!?

Yes, it [sign in to see URL] to answer "how do we do it?" I'm honestly not totally sure how we would go about it. I know that if you're a Traditionally trained Wicca, you are sworn to secrecy about many of the rites and [sign in to see URL] that would be really difficult to [sign in to see URL], maybe if some of that was mixed with other things, making it something other than [sign in to see URL] could work.
Something perhaps you, Firle and I can discuss and work on figuring out.

Re: How do you keep 'Pagan'?


I did a little research. I think calling it a 'coven' is wrong. It would just be an online study group. I'm thinking of some [sign in to see URL] a new thread about it soon!

We couldn't, technically, call it a Coven, anyway, because we are not all Pagan, nor are we all Witches. We CAN call it a study [sign in to see URL] give it a cooler name, [sign in to see URL] that would be, I'm not sure [sign in to see URL] I love the idea and I think we can make it work.

Well we could call ourselves...
[sign in to see URL].

F = Friends or Familiar

A = Atheist or Animism (the belief that natural objects and nature itself are alive and conscience.)

M =Magick or Mandala (object used to focus during meditation)

I = Inclusive or Invocation

L = Love or Logos (pagan greek term meaning "Word or Reason")

Y = Yin and Yang (Taoist belief that the Universe is made of pairs of opposing forces)

Queeny, I love the idea, but I don't think it would work for a topic name. I think what you came up with would be something we could maybe incorporate in a description of board.

We need something that indicates a study [sign in to see URL] calling it [sign in to see URL] group. LOL.
