Hello everyone! I introduced myself about a day ago, but made an entirely new topic because it got a bit long. My alias is Marigina, and I’m a 20 year-old who was raised Catholic but felt a different calling around the middle school years. This was around the same I time I slowly began to free myself from fear-mongering and dogmatic thought patterns while retaining the belief in a higher power.
I like various types of magick such as working with sigils, tarot divination (and other forms of divination), and Chaos Magick.
My current goals involve being able to use magick to help myself and those I care about while walking a path filled with self-improvement and gaining new knowledge. I know that I’ll be able to change my life and surroundings when I erase doubts and misconceptions about the world I live in, so one of my long-term goals is to incorporate magick into daily life to shape it in the long run. I also aspire to one day successfully be able to contact spirits both inside and outside of the dream world when I need to, and I’m willing to practice for as long as it take to be able to do this. I’ve already made some progress by coming in contact with Lucifer twice in the dream realm, and those experiences are positive ones I shall never forget.
My current struggles are living in a house that is not my own with family members who greatly disagree with the practices of the LHP. In this Christian household, I’m technically a “witch in the broom closet”. I have to maintain the facade of the “wholesome confirmed Catholic” to keep suspicion away, as this mask is the only thing I have to keep them from realizing that my preferences will clash with their beliefs.
Money also isn’t super abundant, but I’m working on saving up for various things I need with the job I have since I currently do not have many bills to pay.
I look forward to a fascinating and wonderful time during my stay at this forum!
