* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

How did you start on your Path?
 
How did you become involved in aspects of witchcraft, hoodoo, and folk magic?


LaVeyian Satanism started my magical path.  Been an Instinctual Chaote since about 1996.  And I read just about anything I can get my hands on about the subject, to see what I can do that works better.

One of favorite links that I have shared with my students is below.

My beliefs are my own.  I do not speak for anyone else.  It is my personal perspective.  
I am not the Way or the Truth.  No Man or Woman can reach their God/dess through me.


When people ask me, "What give you the right to suggest standards for others?",
my answer is, "If I don\'t, someone else, perhaps less qualified, will."
History has proven that qualification is based on acceptance. The end justifies the means. - LaVey

Personally, I was raised Pentecostal and began to look into other religions during high school. Yes, my mama warned me and threatened with hell-fire and brimstone. However, I began by considering myself Pagan. As time went on I began to feel associated with Wicca, but that didn't last long. Those of you that have followed me have seen that I am slowly but surely transitioning into a path, which I refer to as, Religious Witchery. Basically, I do my own thing and follow the guidance of the Deities/Spirits and Nature. Anyways, more about that in the "What Kind of Witch Are You?" thread . . .
 
Now as I go along and mature within my Craft, I just go with whatever comes to me and work with that which feels as if it fits and meshes with my own desires/practices.

 
In high school I began actively searching for something meaningful and attended different churches and I was reading myths and ancient history and such. But I wasn't exposed to anything pagan or witchy in my small town library. It was a close cousin, sister in effect really, who, in my early twenties, gave me an introductory Cunningham book and that started me on my path.  I've long since moved away from Wicca and more into folk magic since finding Lucky Mojo online some years ago.
