Is there any specific pantheon that you're drawn to? Or any specific culture that you're interested? If so, then you might want to begin to look into the religious beliefs of that culture. And within that pantheon, see if there's any specific God/Goddess that you're drawn to.

Only to the point that I am Welsh by birth and feel I should go along the Celtic lines, but I've always been wary of even going down that path in case it's not for me.  Perhaps it's my wariness that is stopping me?  I did once look through the Celtic Gods, but perhaps it just wasn't the right time for me.  I will try it again and see where I follow...

I started researching different paths, looking at how other people viewed the world and the divine, I did a lot of soul searching about what I truly believed and how that fit into my life, and somewhere along that journey I found Kemeticism.  It was like a light had turned on in a part of my life that had previously been hidden in shadows.

My advice would be don’t rush the process, it isn’t a race, you’ll find out where you belong it just may take some time.

Hmm, maybe it's my impatience, because I'm very impatient!  Even though I know it's not a race I'm nearly 30 (in a few days, *gulp*) and I've been searching all my life.  Sometimes I actually envy children whose parents put them on a specific religious path lol!  Except that means it's often harder to leave and truly follow your heart...

Thank you both of you.  Just writing it has helped me think it through a little, and believe it or not I've just had a fairly "deep and meaningful" with my other half, who has just stated it's "fine by him" as to where I want to go with my life.  I genuinely do feel blessed to have so many accepting people in my life.  As I said before, I think my fears with regards to telling people stem more from society in generals reactions, rather than the likely reactions of those of the people closest to me.
