All Beliefs are Welcome Here!
I suppose I have been walking the Path for many years now. I have memories of knowing things in childhood. For instance, I knew many latin names for plants, and their medicinal uses, without ever learning it in the outside world.
Another instance, in 2007, the day before my third daughter was born, I saw her face in the clouds. At that point in my life I considered myself an open minded Christian. But I remember lying on my bed, looking out the window and looking into that beautiful face for what seemed like an eternity. I was so sad when the cloud dissipated, but i knew in my heart that I would see that face again very soon.
Only recently have I come to learn the Craft in depth and I am realizing that I have been on this Path for perhaps many lifetimes. I draw my heritage from places where Witches were well known (Ireland and Slovakia) and there are tales of distant ancestors who were fortune tellers and "Gypsies."
One day I was driving down the road and the thought leapt in my mind that the Earth herself is a Goddess. Until that moment I had spent many hours pondering the existence of a god or goddess and it was at that moment as I watched the trees breeze by me that I realized. The Answer was there all along, I just hadn't been able to see past my own perceptions.
