Hello everyone Smiley

Since I was about 12 years old I have felt drawn to Wicca.  I didn't know what Wicca was at the time, but I knew I was drawn to nature.  There's something very special about watching the sun rise or sitting out under the moon on a clear night.  I started to research Wicca aged about 15 but veered of the path for various personal reasons. 

I'm 21 years old now and have started reading about it again.  I want to share with you all how excited I am!  It feels so right!  I've been reading and talking to people and i've discovered that everything I believe in and feel passionate about all falls under the Wiccan umbrella, and I feel so at peace and get a sense of fullfillment just from doing my research.  I really feel like I have found my path, and this time I am able to start to walk it.  I just need some help to light my way.

I have to wait until next payday to increase my Wiccan library but I have seen a book on the internet called 'The Real Witches Handbook: A complete intro'  By Kate West.  It looks like it's really informative.  Has anybody read this book?  Anybody know of any other particularly good books which are easy for a beginner to grasp?

For now i'm just reading and lurking around on here, satisfied that i've found the path for me.  I'm a bit stuck on what would be my next step?  Is there anyone out there in the same boat as me?

I think we've bumped into each other on here before! :] Im about a year younger than you, and in the EXACT same boat!  Im just finally reading up on Paganism and finding out what fits me best.  One of the things I learned whilist worrying about which path to take, another Pagan (I think she was Hellenic) said, "The easiest way to start is to ask yourself what you believe in.  Not who, but what."  I think what she meant is things like, reincarnation, and just generally the universe and how things work.  I think that would be a good place to start!

As for that book by Kate West, no I havent read it, but I have seen it in the bookstore.  Currently I am reading Scott Cunningham's Wicca: for the solitary practitioner.  I dont think I can call myself Wiccan...I think for a while now I have been leaning towards Eclectic Pagan, but I am also searching this site for Heathen, Hellenic, and Druid links. :]

Oh, I hope my post helped a bit.  Good luck on your path! Feel free to PM me if you ever just wanna chat. :]
