Hmmm...thought I'd maybe make a post about my beliefs, seeming as how this is kindof what the community is for, ne?
I'm Pagan. Haven't really figured out a different term. I take aspects from so many different Pagan religions, so I suppose one would call me "eclectic." I've just been calling myself a witch.
I believe in karma, and believe that it plays a huge role in everyone's life. I also believe in immortal souls. Yes, everyone does have a mortal soul that dies and progresses onwards, but I think that everyone also posesses immortal souls. Immortal souls aren't really your past lives, but I suppose they can be. My immortal souls carry on lives of their own, and whether it be in dreams, visions, or memories I am able to see parts of their lives. Not many other Pagans believe in immortal souls, but I have met a few here in St. Cloud, who's immortal souls are actually connected to mine in some way, shape, or form.
I also believe in spirit guides and totem animals. I believe in the fae, elves, gnomes, dragons, etc, and believe that everyone in this world carries attributes of one of these creatures. My elements are Earth and Air. More Earth than Air however. My pantheon is not limited to one. I use/borrow dieties from several pantheons including (but not limited to) Native American, African, Celtic, Welsh, English, Lithuanian, Italian (not Roman), Japanese, and Korean. I do believe that I have a patron God and Goddess, but I have yet to figure out who they are.
I consider myself a solitary practitioner in a way, but not fully because I am involved in casting circles and doing rituals with some of my friends and fellow Pagans. I do spells, yes, and love to write my own. I am pretty advanced in the ways of manipulating energy and creating shields. I love making energy balls (and throwing them ^-^). I'm working on being able to see auras.
I'm looking for some friends who may or may not share my own beliefs and whatnot. Just interesting people to talk to. This community was a kick-ass idea, because so many "Pagan" communities out there are centered mainly on one type of Paganism. Yay for dreamingbeyond!
