My parents are very nosy and this is the only place I can go they won't follow. I want to learn more about Paganism and see if it's right for me. Can you help me understand it more?
I have loads of information on this blog.
1.) Paganism is an umbrella term. It is a name for nature based/polytheistic religions. Wicca, witchcraft, neo-paganism, Celtic, Roman, Greek, Egyptian, Native American, these religions sometimes fall under this umbrella because they are not adherent to Abrahamic religious ideals. Abrahamic: meaning not Christian, Catholic, Jewish, or Islamic. Religions that are popular, so to speak. This doesn’t mean you can’t follow one God/Goddess/deity.
2.) There are many paths. Each person has a varying way of worshiping/following Paganism.
3.) Finding your own path is a personal journey, people can help guide you but you walk down the roads.
I know that this is pretty generic, but there is a lot of different ways to receive information. Try books at your local library, things of that nature. Hope this helps and good luck!
