Having guidance always helps though . Maybe we should make a pagan thread ,for just asking questions in regard to pagan ritual and so forth.
People interested could get a few view points,and do what feels comfortable ?
In any case,my suggestion would be to read Lady Rheas book ,and try a spell .
You can modify them to your taste or need,and she touches on Buddhist,wiccan,and even Santeria workings .
It's a candle magick book .
The very first printing of this book ,which was very different that this incarnation ,was the book that influenced me the most ,when I started ,and its what I come back to ,when I just want something direct and powerful .
You can find it cheaper on amazon I think .
The Enchanted Candle,by Lady Rhea .
I also suggest you just start reading about what calls to you .
I think having a thread for it would be a good idea. I'm sure many people who come here (incl. lurkers) have questions about the various practices and concepts. I'm always interested in learning more about any spiritual /religious practice just for the enjoyment of learning.
