Does anyone have any tips on finding which God/Goddess you are destined to worship, if any?

I struggle daily with my beliefs for many reasons, I'll go in to a couple of them not too deeply here:

My mother brought us up as non-denominational.  We were taught morals etc, she told us she believed in Jesus, as in he was a good man who did good things, and we should follow that.  We since learned she is (quite) Christian, she just never imposed those beliefs on us.  She is incredibly accepting and I think if I told her outright "I am a 'insert religion here'" she would just accept me, however I would still feel (even at 30) funny telling her.

My partner is Catholic, fairly strict, but clearly not too much so, we live together out of wedlock!

My siblings again are very accepting, though cynical/critical (probably due to a hard life lol!).

I think a lot of it is more to do with what general society perceives would be other peoples reactions, rather than what I feel their reactions would be, if that makes sense?

My point is that it's hard for me to find the time and space to spend finding out where I am going.  I draw a tarot each morning for guidance and I try to mediatate a little on waking and sleeping.  I also spend time breathing in the fresh air and appreciating the world around me, but I would not feel happy setting up an altar just yet, though I have done in the past, my ex husband worked away a lot.

I also try to find time each day to sit in peace and if possible meditate.  I don't work at the moment due to a bad accident last year, so I have the time for this.

I guess what I'm asking is does anyone have any suggestions on who to call, or at least how to find out?  There are so many Gods and Goddesses, I just don't know where to start!  I suppose it would help if I knew exactly which path I was going down...  I feel somewhat drawn to Wicca.  I also feel a strong need to heal.  But I don't know if the former is because that is what I already know more about and if the latter is because I just feel a need to help others; or whether they are really the paths I am drawn to!

My apologies for going on and being a bit confusing!

Thanks in advance, Neme.
