I’m quite a spiritual person but I have been searching for guidance for a while now and often feel I am stumbling in the dark but it’s not meant to be found in a day. The journey, the pilgrimage is part of life.
N.B. No I don’t want the Alpha Course I am not that way inclined.
I just unsubscribed from a mailing list:
There is an awful lot of information out there and an awful lot of good but you have to filter out the crap, your intuition is a good start.
However when something becomes popular however good or bad the price escalates out of all proportion. Yeah people make a living but when you have a room full of say 20 people who pay up to £1000 – How much are they raking in? Nice way to make a living!!
There really should be a limit, there should be some way of checking up via reviews to filter out the bullshit
I know there is cheaper stuff out there. I’m happy to pay expenses and a little more but a 3 day course -40% discount still costing $650 ????. I really love and rate your work, your books and your CD collections but WTF??
There are free options and one must wait for the teacher to come yeah ok but what to do in the mean time? Bumbling along in the dark for the last 15 years. I’ve learnt a lot of stuff on the way (most of its common sense) but people feel the need to pay serious amounts of money for something that is not vetted and sometimes complete bullshit.
From talking to some people who have been on some of these courses it frightens me the bullshit they have been fed. Basic fundamentals and safety and protection methods completely left out.
So called expert Modern Spiritual magazines are including articles that bare no resemblance to reality and contain little history or extensive research.
It drives me crazy that the common practice is to call all modern witchcraft Wicca. Um I’m sorry I’m a witch but I’m not Wiccan. There is a difference. Study it. Wicca of the worlds media is a vanilla boring fluffy thing shying away from the real witchcraft.
I personally hate labels due to everyones different opinion of them. If you are going to use them please understand what a word means and where it comes from. I am Pagan I am not a Satanist etc.
By all means go with the flow and take what you want from each path and craft that works for you but do not just take what you are told as gospel. Yes this ‘Teacher” is worth listening too but don’t just listen to them. Question them. Look into them. Look at the bibliography of a book, research things yourself. Talk to other people and use your noggin . Explore the history of your own land and your own space. Study the folklore of the people. Research. Its fun Listen to your spidey sense. If it feels wrong get the hell out of there.
I’m going to build a list of courses, teachers and sources of information that I would trust. Take of it what you will and go in Peace,
edit: remember that email I sent?
I got a reply . They are taking a holiday on all the money they made
