As others have said theres is an overload of info out there. Especially when you are searching. It is confusing.
You may want to find a group for awhile and see how it fits.
I have grown into the idea that a witch is born not made. If you have ever been initiated, it is a ceremony of re-birth, thus born again pagan/witch! And anyone who finds this paths works for them can be born into it. Sometimes it feels as though the literal sense of things are getting umm, too literal.
We all do not know the fine details of our lineage back 2 thousand or more years. Once upon a time practices (well call it magic) were the way of life. I imagine everone has a dab of ancestral whatever in their blood. It's especially sweet when a direct or close relative passes on a tidbit from auntie whoever wo got it from greatgrandpa so-and-so who learned from his second cousin Bacchus, but it doesn't matter. Because we are all connected, here there and everywhere. And what happens to the web happens to all of us no matter what craft you practice, bottom line is know thyself, and be excellent to each other.
some of us got blond stringy hair, some a real talent for rocket science, others can see between the worlds, then a few have green eyes, it's what we were delt. But even with all those additional dna attributes which also can be accepted, or not, all have a connection to Spirit (which manifests our magic) whether we realize "the force within" or not, some sense it stronger than others, and it can be nurtured or it can be rejected.
