I'm here to post up just some random stuff about my path as a native wiccan , seeing how theres not that many around , here in Saskatchewan , i have come across three others who follow the path of wicca (witchcraft) and im woundering if anyone else out there is one as well .
Where to start .... well i grow up in a small town saskatchewan and have been here all my life married and have started a family now, 30 yrs later i am finally free of pretending my life was anything different. i have studied wicca for 11yrs now and reading is what i like to do. So i try and find many books on the subject. be it herbs , spells, tools, setting up altars and so on, i have been seeking out a student and found one in a friend who shares the same interest. so i am teaching her as best i can.
There are so many similarities with the two "religions" that its easy to see. being first nations there was atime when a wiseman would look into a fire or look at a piece of scorched antler and
tell the hunters where the game will be. sweat lodges , the vision quest , and so on where ways of finding things out about yourself , smudging before these things was to purify you and get rid of all negitivity on you. calling to the great spirit for guidence and asking mother earth for good food and healing plants to grow , was a naatural way for my people to live. giving offerings to them was always done. and when going to see a elder in a near by "village" giving a offering to him or her was something we always have done as well.
So i wounder where it all came from.......
