You guys really need to get informed lol. The collective consciousness, infinity, the dreaming body, the tree of life, etc...
It's the way THIS reads that turns a lot of people off to the possibility of investigating alternate frameworks of the world.

Possibly you didnt mean to, but you come across as being "superior and knowing something others do not".

I run into this attitude with many wiccans, mostly as a justification to their different stance and a need to feel superior.
NOT because the science or practice is "different".

In the end its nothing more than another version of a framework human beings use to make sense of their world and keep the tenuous grasp on what they see as control.

But this attitude that accompanies wiccanism these days is quite frankly what is keeping it from blossoming into a beautiful thing.

More thorns than flowers from what is often presented.

Re: Pagan/Wiccan/Occult Relationships

I've been a practicing neo-Pagan for about 10 years. There are very few people in my real life who are aware of it, and I regard my spiritual practices as something deeply personal and private.

When dating I look for people who describe themselves as "spiritual but not religious" (or some version thereof) and I describe myself similarly. I don't really care what kind of spiritual they are, or actually, if they're agnostic or atheist. What would make me incompatible with a person is their being very devoutly anything. I steer clear of guys who mention their devotion to God or their worship habits in their online profiles or on first dates. I don't object to those things at all, but I wouldn't be compatible with someone who wanted/needed me to participate in their worship with them. I also "next" anyone who is openly intolerant of others' beliefs. I don't want to convert anyone, won't put up with anyone who wants to convert me, but also wouldn't be comfortable with anyone who felt the need to let me know they consider people with faith (of any type, or of a type not their own) to be misguided/wrong/sinners/idiots.

I like what someone said about wiccans/pagans looking/feeling superior than others. I see this attitude lot, even in myself sometimes, but I understand it. It has to do with the destruction of ego and self-importance, putting self first, becoming nothing and knowing that everything we experience in this world is a direct reflection of ourselves and our knowledge (we call a tree a tree because we were taught that a tree is a tree when in reality, it's just a label). Sorcerers break habits, break egos, and don't usually care about other people. That's why they come off as such..(but it's a good thing). We must evolve individually before we can collectively!

For myself, I can't date christians/catholics or atheists. The formers worship a lie (read the book of enoch or the lords of the left hand path for some hard truths) and atheists are quite simply, unaware of their energy bodies (and a lack of faith or witnessing in/of the divine self). If that upsets you, there is a reason! That reason is called attachment.

Anyways, I am totally going to digress so I'll stop now. Thanks everyone.

It's good not to care about other people?

No thanks!

You stick with rocks I'll stick to guys who care.

Re: Pagan/Wiccan/Occult Relationships

Sandie...you totally don't understand but that's ok. I am literally rolling on the floor laughing!

Of course it's "good" to care about others but there are definitely degrees of caring and in my context it was more a long the lines of vampirism. Most people let other leech energy off of them and they don't even realize it. That's all I wanted to point out.

When you see energy, you cannot disprove it. It is there and it is real. Children see aura's all the time and yet they are often dismissed. You can call it skitzo if you really want, but every single human is capable of perceiving energy directly.

I care a lot about my friends. More then most people in fact, but if someone sais something negative, it doesn't phase me like most people. It's all cristism and I respect it, honor it and don't let my ego get in the way. Most people let their ego's get in the way.

I'm sure you have seen the typical male ego at some point in your life.

All that matters is love. It is the language of the universe. Maybe let's just agree to that

Pagan/Wiccan/Occult Relationships

Well, I'm a Christian but pragmaster is certainly entitled to his views. And I'm not so sure he will have too much trouble finding like minded souls. The theory of energy transference is not new and at least partially accepted by many. Take this photo for instance. I don't know what it is but it has never been discredited or explained away. I trust that someday God will enlighten me when He calls me home.Pagan/Wiccan/Occult Relationships-uploadfromtaptalk1428528458640.jpg

The ribbon of energy across the picture.

The picture is of Laurie Cabot's witch coven taken in 1979 by national geographic magazine.

Interesting. I met Laurie Cabot a long time ago. I think I have one of her books that she autographed for me.

I met Laurie Cabot as well. Interesting is a very good word.

Re: Pagan/Wiccan/Occult Relationships

I guess lately I have been pretty down and feeling lonely. I have a few pagan friends but in a city of bible thumpers, we are the outcast.

Debated moving to a city with more hippies or spiritual folk. Is that so crazy?

Re: Pagan/Wiccan/Occult Relationships

Nope, and speaking as a herbal hippy type, I can testify because I live near enough to Eugene, OR to visit regularly and they have a market during better weather where it is "normal" to be a freer spirit wearing tie dye and patchouli. Having the chance to enjoy others who are of a like mind, and the drum circle of course, is relaxing and feels peaceful.

If there is a city nearby that is more "hippies and spiritual folk" you may find some rest within yourself.

I love the smell of patchouli.
