* "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.

Seeking Pagan Practice / Spiritual Mentor
« on: July 20, 2020, 10:46:06 pm »
Hello Beautiful People,
Vita here! I started practicing when I was 13 (I am 19 now) and I have had the feeling of being directionless and not knowing where to go with my practice and how to go about keeping my practice alive during stressful or busy times. I am humbly seeking an experienced mentor who would be willing to help me out so to speak. Let me know if you feel our paths are meant to intersect in this way  :D. Thank you so much to everybody that read!

Hello Beautiful People,
Vita here! I started practicing when I was 13 (I am 19 now) and I have had the feeling of being directionless and not knowing where to go with my practice and how to go about keeping my practice alive during stressful or busy times.

Hello there.

I think lots of us here can sympathise with that directionless feeling and especially with practicing when busy &/or stressed, too.

In terms of finding a specific mentor, though, I think you're going to need to find a way to compare and contrast your outlook with those of prospective mentors, first off -- this is because most people are going to want a mentor whose outlook is at least partially similar to theirs (and I suspect most mentors would largely wish for mentees who are following a similar path, too).

So may I suggest that you set about some independent research first of all, to begin to zero in on some sorts of practices which may appeal to you?  You don't have to restrict yourself to just one prospective path, though, you can explore several at once.  And although starting out on your own independent research can seem daunting, actually you can just start by browsing around all the (many, many) old threads right here on TC for ideas and inspiration (which is pretty much how I started out).

Another great thing to try, though hampered for a lot of us at the moment due to the whole coronavirus situation, is seeking out local groups and events where you can chat to fellow pagans (hopefully that's something which will become possible again before too long in most parts of the world).

Good luck with it, and keep us posted from time to time with how it's going  :)
