I would suggest you simply call the Sacred, rather than a specific deity, or your "higher self" if you prefer, and ask for guidance and direction.  You may not find you wish to work with individual deities.  Thing is, spirituality is an ongoing process of discovery, your beliefs may change along the way, and there's not necessarily "destined Gods/Goddesses".  I find the Gods call to those they wish to work with.

You might consider doing a study of various Pagan paths to see if any other "feel" right, though I would trust your instinct if I were you on that, rather than second-guessing.  Still, it can't hurt to, say, try the Belief-o-Matic quiz to examine and consider beliefs and get basic info - http://www.beliefnet.com/story/76/story_7665_1.html - or check out the Pagan Primer here on the Cauldron - http://www.ecauldron.com/newpagan.php - or simply read the articles at left in the sidebar under Article Library to learn more about various Pagan paths.  Drawing Down the Moon is a good overview of various Pagan paths as well; it's even available at my library so maybe is at your own.

That's what I was wondering, whether you actually do have to find someone in particular, or whether S/He will come when needed.

I've looked a little at other religions but tend to find I learn not a lot, mainly because I don't feel a draw or a pull to them in any way, which I'm taking as a sign to mean they are not the path I should be following.

I intend to register at the library tomorrow (I've only been here two years, tut tut...), so I will have a look for that.

Thank you Smiley
