Advice for getting back into the craft?

I had chosen to not practice the craft until I turned 18 so that I would be able to give my all without fear from parental disapproval. That being said, it is almost my birthday and I have begun studying the craft so that I can gain more knowledge which is something I unfortunately neglected to do. I was a new witch when I stopped practicing so I still have much to learn. Any advice on how I can become stronger as I transition back into a very prominent spiritual life? :flyingwitch:

Take it slow, pay attention to what interests you or calls to you, remember to breathe.

I'm just getting back into my practice as well.

I think one main thing to remember is to ease in slowly. Take a little at a time, and don't beat yourself up if you don't do everything perfectly or even as well as you used to. Remember it's all personal and you are always changing. Enjoy the journey :-)

Personally, I'd just start again. If you left the Craft behind, you're probably a different person now when compared to the person you were.

Go slow,observe, and ask questions. Is there a Pagan's Night Out in your area, or a Pagan's Pride day? (check Witchvox).

Witchcraft is highly experiential by nature. The more you practice the more you learn. That being said i would start with some simple spells, learning to ground and center and direct your energy. Meditating will also help get you in the proper mindset. Take it slow and have fun

I'm just returning as well - but I have a few of my old research books / bos to get back into it easily.

When I decided to reactivate my inner self I started to read on the internet - I personally researched protection spells - picked up a notebook and wrote down what I found.

Just a few suggestions - Get some good books and learn about the Sabbats and what they are about so you can celebrate them. Meditate. Learn and understand about the elements and elementals. Practice casting a circle. Understand the correspondences and start to practice spellwork.
