Hi there Kayla,
I would just say... read around & inundate yourself through readings, experiences from others & your greatest gift, your intuition.
Thank you so much, I will save you E-mail. :)
There is a ton of information out there that can make your head spin. I am currently reviewing different aspects of pagan paths and may be able to provide some answers on the different paths if you like.....
If I can make a few recommendations? Start with Cunningham's "Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner", if you haven't already. If you ever consider working with a group IRL, I would also recommend Amber K's "Covencraft" - at least the chapters that pertain to finding a group.
And feel free to PM me! :)
When you first start in the craft, its not always a good idea ti find a teacher straight away, maybe have a look round the web read a little and have a think, joining a group or finding a teacher isn't always the best option for that person. During my life I have been in a few teacher student relationships, both as teacher and student, the effectiveness is very much dependent on the people involved and the expectation of both.
Just be careful of accepting someone eases truth as your own without making sure it sits really nicely with you. As other people have said Scottt Cunningham A guide for the solitary practitioner & Raymond Bucklands Complete book of witchcraft are all well worth a read. you can pick up a copy quiet cheaply now.
Just use your common sense and that good old six sense, you'll not go far wrong.
Hope that helps
