Ok, so I have Pagan beliefs but, have never practiced it; read up on it when I was younger but, my family wouldn't have been ok with me having an altar or doing spells in thier home. I still have the same Pagan belies but, have never celebrated the Holidays or done a spell, etc. Is it ok to just jump in & do say "minor" spells for protection, guidance, & cleasing & gather items for my altar as I happen upon them? Should I study more before doing any spells or rituals & have a completed altar or is ok to gain knowledge form more "hands on" means in a more free formed way? I in no way take practicing lightly & mean no disrespect but, I'm just a go with the flow kind of gal & trying to figure out my next step. Also, I am decidely Pagan yet have not yet felt drawn yet to a specific pantheon on set "path", is that ok, too?
Any guidance & suggestions from the wonderful Pagans here is warmly welcomed!!

Study is always beneficial, the more varied the sources the better. But it is OK for you to do anything that feels right to you. Think very carefully about anything you do & make sure you word things just the way you want them to be. There is nothing wrong with jumping right in & feeling your way along your spiritual path, it will just be easier when you illuminate your path with knowledge.

Just as many before me has said...
If it feels right and YOU feel it's the right time, then do it...
But I recommend reading what you can get your hands on... ask questions all the time ...
You do learn and retain information as you go, but don't be afraid to fall back on a book or your BOS or any other information you have...
Good Luck on your path
