    Beginning worship.

    Hello everyone, My name is Colin and I have just recently became a Eclectic Pagan. Last night I performed a rite to find my patron deity. After I completed the rite I felt like I had hellfire in my body but yet I was not sweating, I was then compelled to grab my ancient Greek coins, I was also compelled to speak with my girlfriend about pouring wine into the ground when I get married. I believe that this was Hades speaking to me. I am looking for some prayers to Hades that I can perform. Please help!

    Okay, breathe.

    There's a lot going on in this post. So, how about you break it down, huh? You just want prayers for some reason...?

    I'm sorry. I am looking for a path in general, I wrote this in a haze after a long night. I need a form of guidance as I am fairly lost in this world. I was an atheist for a very long time. Recent events such as the passing of my grandmother and the feeling of an old friend (presence of a spirit or god ) in the room has re ignited my spiritual flame. I have decided that Eclectic paganism and Wicca are the path for me. I need some help finding my way.

    Okay, one thing you should always remember as a beginner is that you don't have to nail yourself down to a path right away. Explore! Read! Try stuff!

    That said, I'm gonna direct you to Jenett's site here. There is a lot of good information there geared towards beginners. Take your time and poke around there and also here on the forum.

    Nobody here is gonna have all the answers, or be able to direct you to the 'right' path for you, but by just reading and talking to people I can promise you'll start to develop your own sense of where to go.

    I second Mama Fortuna. Take your time! There's no rush, no reason to dash into a specific path. Paganism is like a spirituality mall: grab a latté, pick up some candles, browse the gods, check out the meditation lounge, try that spell that pushy guy at the kiosk is hawking (but probably don't buy the spell kit, y'know? Those kiosk things are mostly gimmicks). Chill in the massage chair with that witchy book you bought. Drool over the athames (they may not be your thing, but hot damn are they cool). The store selling divination tools is the sort of place you can spend forever in. Sure, you don't really NEED the glittery Gandalf hat, but it was on sale...

    Nobody's going to make you nail something down ASAP. Have fun with it!

    (Also, this paganism mall thing needs to exist. Seriously.)

    That sounds like everything a metaphysical fair has ever aimed to be, only better, bigger, and permanent.

    I know, right? I starting writing it as a total metaphor, and got halfway through and was like OMG I WANT TO GO TO THIS.
