Re: I can feel his emotions and thoughts toward me...

There is no such thing as a soulmate. The entire idea stinks of insecurity and fairytales. People claim to have met their soulmate then they get divorced... yeh, nice. I dont feel there is anything particularly special between you, simply that you are mildly empathic and he is overly expressive in h...

Re: Charms and charm bracelets

They mean nothing except what you believe they mean. A simple object with an ordinary, uncomplex shape such as circular or clover shaped is just a bit of plastic or wood. It doesnt mean or do anything just as me cutting up a bit of paper into some random shape doesnt do anything. However... if you B...

Re: which craft to choose?

Remember that wicca isnt witchcraft. I am nowhere near wiccan in any way, witchcraft is an action, much like a christian prays and asks for things a wiccan (or pagan) performs witchcraft to MAKE something happen. You can be a christian witch since witchcraft is an action, not a religion, you will st...

Re: Recurring Dreams Help?

Interesting... Sounds deeply psychological and like you said almost certainly related to past experiences. Often recurring dreams relate to a psychological problem or obstacle, a way for your brain to say "im not sure about this, let's practice it so that we can do something about it." I dont put *a...

Re: A strange thing I came across.

That absence of evidence against a theory does not suggest evidence FOR that theory. Lack of evidence for a theory however does suggest that theory is invalid.

There is no logic behind karma and it just stinks of psychology dreamt up by people who felt too weak to live in a a world without rules.

Re: which craft to choose?

you may choose wicca however wicca mandates a belief in a god and a goddess. You cannot be both christian and wiccan. You can be a pagan who believes in the christian god however you would not be christian and according to Christianity you will go to hell.

Re: A strange thing I came across.

You didnt sound rude, i see your point however there is a difference between learning about something and having it drilled into you. I dont mind learning about christianity, its roots, its beliefs, its characters. But i still do not believe a single letter of it's bile. Knowledge is impartial, i ca...

Re: A strange thing I came across.

The god/goddess thing really gets me, there is no such thing as far as i am concerned. Many wiccans present their views as absolute fact, i know i am guilty of that at points but i do try to say "in my opinion" etc... since I know that i may be wrong, though i believe i am right. The thing is, if a ...

Re: Do I have to have wiccan ancestors?

I think Traumwanderlin (can never spell that name, usually copy and paste but she isnt in this thread :D) meant a pagan center was a place where the majority of people were pagan. Every country has it's places where paganism is more accepted. here in the UK we have places like the New forest which i...

Re: Do I have to have wiccan ancestors?

Before the story of jesus was invented by some nutcase (and likewise for the various other imaginary prophets and gods) the WORLD was pagan. Since pagan is a loose term..

Ancestors mean nothing, to say that having "pagan ancestors" or not is like the color of my socks. Immaterial.

Re: Water soluble stones?

over such a short time period you dont need to worry, acid rain would take probably decades to have a noticable effect on a small bowl, expecially since the rain is now probably less acidic than it was a decade ago.

Re: Chakra

Chakras are something some, not all, pagans believe exist. You can imagine them as just parts of your spiritual body where energy of different levels collects. Those who believe in them claim they can link them together in order to access and use that energy and use the chakras to recharge. I am und...

Re: A strange thing I came across.

The issue i have with traditional karma is that it implies some god like being, even if that deity were karma itself, the universe needs some sentience to understand a good action from a bad one. Punching a mentally ill child in the face is consider a bad thing (usually, depends where you are) Howev...

Being "not yourself" does not mean reincarnation or anything similar.

Re: A strange thing I came across.

I disagree, what you are describing as Karma sounds more like an unconscious reaction to a situation. Like if someone went to punch you in the face and you ducked and punched their stomach, instinctive, but not karma.
