Have you belonged to a really good energy working Wiccan or Pagan group?

by Pleiades:

I’ve visited a few, I’m generally more interested in healing, and psychic/channeling, etc. but picked up Cunningham’s book and found a surprising flood of energy (esp. addressing elements/directions, standing in the kitchen using a paring knife as a stand in). Started looking into local groups…haven’t found anything like I’d imagined a practicing group to be, mostly interested in “playing witch”, or recreating “ancient” ceremonies, trying to be practitioners of past times and different locals…(I’m critical, but practical). Have you ever belonged to a working group that really wanted to develop energy and community? And avoided the silliness that can come with some of the shallower writings? Am I being unrealistic?

I have been disappointed every time I check a group out. Silliness is the name of the game. My spirit guide informed me to go it alone. If I need guidance of some sort from someone I’ll encounter them.

There are groups that are serious and groups that are silly. Don’t worry, there is a group out there that will suit you, or at least, there are others who think as you do. Maybe it’s up to you to start the group! And as someone said, don’t limit yourself to Wicca. You might find what you’re looking for in Druidry or Hellenism, but I’m inclined to think that your local Shamanic Cirlce might be right up your alley.

It takes time and work to find a group of people you feel comfortable sharing that type of energy with. I have been lucky to find several groups over the course of my path that just clicked fantastically together. It will be difficult at first to find a group, but once you do wow, the feeling is unbelievable.

You can always start your own, you’ll get the feel for people that are on your same vibe or not. Be picky, this is your energy you are sharing!

Yes, you’re being unrealistic. No Wiccans have powers, no matter how much they calim to. I used to be a solitary Wiccan myself. Maybe you should read about the lives of famous occultists: http://usminc.org/famous.html Then decide if it’s worth persuing. If you want to wind up broke and forgotten, go for it! In the 19th century a romaticizing of things Pagan began. Godfrey Leland forged a spurious book called Aradia:Gospel of the Witches that implied that witches were pagans who worshipped Diana (and Lucifer). He plagarized materials from two previous books he wrote (Etruscan Remains and Gypsy Sorcery). Although the… Read more »

It’s hard to find enough people with a low “fluffy factor” to form a solid group. Such groups are out there, they’re just a bit rare.

I wouldn’t call your request unrealistic. Sounds like you’ve got high standards, which isn’t a bad thing, despite what some people in the community might tell you.

Check out this link for like minded individuals in your area. http://www.witchvox.com/ Yes, I have been in a cohesive group of practitioners. Those kind of groups take quite a bit of time to develop and usually when they achieve it they are not interested in inviting others in as it can upset the balance that was hard achieved. You are not being unrealistic, I do think you may not be viewing all facets of the gem. I suggest you look into psychic fairs and more new-age type activities to find others like yourself.

All of the religion stuff including pagan is worth very little IMHO. There are so many questions about hell and damnation. Then you have the freaks who are convinced that the Bible says we are in our last days etc. My suggestion is to relax and have a Coke and watch television until some of this compulsive religion leaves your body LOL.

I haven’t. Would like to be a part of one though.

You’re not being unrealistic, only a little narrow-minded.
Don’t limit your search for a healing/spiritual community to Wicca.
