Hello, I’m new to all issues pagan. I apologize prematurely if I take advantage of incorrect phrases or something. To start out, I’m not a witch, I’ve practiced yoga for nearly ten years, and I’m a 500hr Yoga trainer, I meditate recurrently, in addition to follow asana, I took advance research in Hinduism, Buddhism, and frivolously touched on Tantra. I’ve all the time loved the philosophy and lifestyle of Buddhism, however by no means noticed myself as one. I’ve all the time been drawn to nature, and feeling linked to the universe. I’m extraordinarily secular, and thought of myself a religious secularist. I used to be on Reddit my typical nightly routine, and I got here throughout this submit on Paganism, within the submit it stated Buddhism fell underneath Paganism. Which sort of shocked me becasue I’ve by no means heard of that earlier than. I do know little to nothing on the practices that fall underneath Paganism. I do know there may be Wicca, Witchcraft…and I’m positive so many extra. It lead me down this path of studying into Wicca, Witchcraft… so on. It lead me to the works of Gerald Gardner, Aleister Crowley, white magick/ darkish magick, an emerald pill, and sigils. Lengthy story quick, it lead me to this subreddit, again from as soon as I began. I used to be scrolling by this web page, and simply clicked on a submit about beginning an alter, I used to be like omg, I completely have one arrange in my home. To not the mindfulness and intentions which might be on right here, however I do. I do not do something with it, it simply was the one desk I had that collected issues. In yoga, you may have an alter, often with a deity, some candles, and maybe and intention, so I’m not naive to assume I used to be fully unaware of what was on my desk. It simply took a type of an alter by years of discovering rocks outdoors I believed the place fairly, good lighting for my herbs, and likewise a spot to burn incense that did not annoy my roommate, which all occur to be on this one desk. I discover myself each couple of weeks, rearranging the stones, to mud, rotating the vegetation to get daylight, and simply shifting issues round.
Is it truly potential, to have an alter, that you simply unintentionally made? Or is that this legit only a random coincidence, that occurs to resemble an alter. No matter what the gathering on my desk is or is not. I discover Wicca, and Witchcraft fascinating, and can proceed to learn into it.
