  1. 1)Ignore the fundies saying you’ll go to hell and are opening yourself up to demons. They don’t believe in either.
    2)Get the book: Wicca, a Guide for the Solitary Practitioner by Scott Cunningham (Amazon.com used books is a great resource)
    3)Avoid Silver Ravenwolf, DJ Conway and most Llewellyn books
    4)Do NOT pay for lessons over the internet. You can’t ask for references. Do NOT give out personal information to anyone over the internet. Get a PO Box.
    5)www.witchvox.com http://wicca.timerift.net
    6)Learn and keep learning about various paths in paganism.
    7)get the book: “Drawing Down the Moon” by Margo Adler (an older book that’s a little dated, especially concerning Asatru but a good resource) – it gives an overview on a lot of pagan traditions.
    I’m not a good resource beyond these suggestions. I haven’t been a Wiccan since 1992 and I left Heathenism a year ago.

  2. Just find something and start worshiping it, like an old bent nail or whatever. Then there will be absolutely no difference between you and the highest priest in the most magnificent cathedral in the world. It’s all the same thing: crap.

  3. I recommend reading broadly and deeply. Pagan is a rather broad term, after all, and the more you know, the more able you will be to choose a specific path that calls to you.
    Start out with general overview type readings on modern Paganism, and then explore the various specific paths that your reading bring your attention to.
    I hope you’re willing to put in a fair amount of effort and at least a year’s time!

  4. There are so many different Pagan religions; if there ar any specific ones you have in mind you should consult people of those faiths.
    If you mean generically Pagan (non-denominational, no specific established tradition), then there is no offical church to go to, no official place to sign up. If you identify as a Pagan, it’s enough.
    Read and learn, attune with nature and the Higher Power. Celebrate holidays that hold meaning for you (a lot of Pagans adapt some version of the Wiccan Wheel of the year). Do what feels right– listen to Pagan music, take a weekly nature walk, plant a garden… do what feels right, what feels spiritual, what helps you feel that connection.
