  • I stopped breathing once and I saw her. She was in a green meadow with her arms opened. She had golden hair that was up but cascaded down her back. She held me and kissed me and told me it wasn't time for my next soul and to go back.

  • I always felt closer to the female deity. The male one just always seemed so distant. That is what put me on the path to research religions in the first place.

  • Having my son was what really put me on the pagan path. There was just something so spiritual about the act of giving birth that I realized there had to be a feminine divine somewhere.

  • The first time I felt Her prescence, I was totally lost and just started researching Wicca. A friend told me to pray, and if I was meant to be Her's, She would make it known. So I did, and it was like the whole ROOM filled up with this warm, loving energy and I was enveloped in an embrace. It felt just like it did when my mom held me when I was little. I even smelled the perfume my mom wore when I was really small. I started to cry and I asked if this was real, and I could HEAR her in my head and in my heart, telling me "Of course, I was just waiting for you to be ready to see me." As if, all my previous religious experience had just been "fake it till you make it" and that moment was the first moment in my life I'd truly been ready to believe there was something bigger than myself, and to experience it. I felt humbled, but comforted. Safe, but scared.

  • When I became a mother I became more aware of the powerful maternal and feminine forces in nature. I also felt Her as a part of me. I feel Her when I need strength and She guides me.

  • I feel Her daily, but I am overcome with emotion when listening to music about Her, or doing anything relating to my Pagan path. I also strongly feel It when I help others. I truly believe it's my calling life, and I am surrounded by a wonderful, fulfilling sense of love and warmth every time I do.
