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

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!


I know how you felt. I'm doing the same thing right now, but nothing's really smacked me in the face saying, "Here! I'm over here!" Then again I don't feel that I've done enough obsessive research (although some of my friends would contradict me there), so maybe I haven't seen the right one yet?

There's been a bit of a pull towards Hellenism, but also a push away sometimes. Very confusing. Any advice from anyone would be greatly appreciated.

I wouldn't be too concerned.  I didn't really get any sense of any individual deities very strongly for many years.  Possibly because of a somewhat softer polytheistic mindset, possibly because I hadn't done enough 'obsessive research' either!   Smiley

Now that feeling I understand entirely.  I can't really advise you on what to do because I haven't resolved that completely yet, and don't know whether I can.  The deities I've had a sense of contact have been more frequently Hellenic, but not at first, and not always.  I suspect the feeling of 'push-pull' comes more from within than without in my case.

a lot of things helped me on the way to finding my path, but i found card readings to be the most useful.  i found that the more i wanted to know and the more effort i really put into discovering what i wanted to know, the cards just jumped at me.  don't give up.  it took me YEARS to get to the point where that happened.  good luck!!

I'm still doing my own research, so i think you are not the only one in this hard task, but I have found certain passion and enthusiasm in this search, it has opened the door to me in many ways and  I am enjoying it a lot. Wish you luck with your own search!!!
