I must admit, I fear I will fall into the traditional and perhaps copy-pasted introductions but alas, I’m not exceptional with words. Especially in the Internet. In fact, this is the first forum I’ve really found myself keen on joining and actually taking part in due to the number of likeminded individuals and fascinating advice I have stumbled across during the lurking phase.
That being said, I shall begin!
My name is Realta. I am 26, from Scotland and have personally felt drawn to the metaphysical and such from the age of about 11. I was raised a Catholic and even attended faith schools but I felt this constant state of unrest within that rather oppressive environment and began to study other paths but realised that first I needed to work on finding my own self first instead of following the cookie cutter life that was previously imposed upon me.
Occasionally, whenever I have come across others on this path, they have often stated that i have some spark about me that would prove useful on my journey, however this was during my teen years so I never felt able to either question these statements further nor was I in the correct headspace to pursue anything.
I am now.
Within the past 4 years, I have practiced in both alchemy and herbalism as well as enchantments however I wish to dip my toes in further.
I have an interest in evocations and conjuring in particular and have just begun to work with Duke Dantalion (to whom I am very grateful) to assist me on acquiring knowledge among other things and I wish to spread deeper into other realms.
The bottom line is that I want to become the best I can be and pour my mind, body and tentatively soul to achieve my fullest potential.
It’s a pleasure to be here and greetings to you all!
