Beginning Practice (Learn Wicca)

 

Hi there.

Chances are that you got to this page by accident.  Or, you know, you wanted to be here.  This page is meant for those just starting out in paganism / Wicca, who want some help or some good, solid resources.  There is nothing that I hate more than the blind leading the blind.  I promise, there are no dark shadows out to get you, or people trying to steal your soul.

I have published this blog for over 5 years now, and the entire time, I never taught.  I can, however, offer instruction now.  If you have questions or comments or want a guided structure on what to do to become a Wiccan, I can offer that to you.  I can also explain the Wiccan Rede and the 13 Principles of Wiccan Belief, the two major documents of Wicca. Because of the large amount of emails and comments I receive, I am unable to offer this guidance for free. Oftentimes, people comment or email and then never follow up with me, which means that I waste a lot of my time trying to help.  The best way to get in contact with me now is through Fiverr. Order a gig, and I will be able to help you (even if what you order is NOT what you need help with).

The best teacher is yourself.  However, often, we need advice, or guidance, or a push in the right direction.  As a pagan blogger, I have the responsibility to make sure that you’re headed the right way.  Or at least, the way that I think is right.  So here’s the deal.  This page has a collection of blog posts organized around a theme: Learning how to be Wiccan.  Or rather, learning what Wicca is and what it means to become a witch.

If you’re here for the first time, I suggest you read this blog post.  It will give you some definitions and some places to begin your search for truth.  But, before you do, there’s one more thing I have to say.  If you’ve read through the classes offered through this page, or you’re doing the exercises with a blog, please, comment and let me know!  I’d love to add your blog to the list (if that’s ok), so that we can share resources.

I don’t like to charge for my services. Here are previously published, freely available guides to various aspects of Wicca. I hope these lead you down the right path. Again, if you have questions, just contact me through Fiverr. I’d be happy to answer them.

  30. Hi Tasha –

    There’s nothing you are required to do to become Wiccan, although many people opt to do a dedication, which is a ceremony in which you declare, “Yes, I am Wiccan.” If you want more info, just let me know. 🙂

  32. hi……I googled beginning to learn about wicca….I saw this link about half the way down the page and for some reason was drawn to it. I of recent times, have been through, and are going through, a HUGE amount of things…..most…nearly ALL of the people I know don’t know how Im still here, how Im still surviving….I used to have a very strong faith in god, but always felt drawn to the wiccan ways. Ive tried to ignore it, having married a devout Lutheran, to which I was forced ON MY WEDDING DAY to be baptised into the Lutheran faith…it was not something I wanted to do. but I felt obliged to do so to be “part of the family”. now, I am facing a divorce, losing my two beautiful children, a hell of a shit fight basically….not to mention having found out I have CIN 3 pre cervical cancer and have to have surgery in 2 weeks, and I just for the life of me cannot believe in “god” and what that stands for anymore. I need some kind of faith, some kind of reassurance that Im not alone, that there are some kind of higher beings watching over me….watching over us…us all…that there is something I can believe in that makes my soul being here valid, holy shit, I don’t even know.

    I could go on typing for hours…but I wont bore you with that…..I will leave you with saying, Im going through an incredibly rough time, Im 31, I live in Adelaide, South Australia, Australia, I have 2 beautiful daughters, Holly Carol~Margaret (4) and Eden Aurora (2) and I just want something, someone to help me, to give me faith that things will turn out ok…..that there is more to this than what I see before me.
    Im really not sure what else to write.
    my cousin is pagan, but Im too scared to ask her about it un case she thinks that Im searching for something from her or that Im trying to “copy” her.

    ok, that’s all I guess. cheers,
    Monika

  34. hi ,
    i had always been interested in following the way of the wicca but sadly i have no idea on how to start and all the resources i have come across has just left me running around in circles . Would require a proper guidance . Thank you

  35. Hi, I grew up with some pagan belief system because of my mother, and it’s really helped me get through this transition into adulthood, I don’t know what it is though she says she’s wicken which I like, but I also like all the Greek mythology and symbolism, I also want to get into spiritual healing of some sort and also heal myself, I’ve had a long life and a rough journey, and this way of life and artistic view is helping me over come some of my fears in today’s society’s image, and I feel like I’m really getting into my family’s roots, I need guidence though. At this point I need to start a better way of life.. It’s very important to me. I don’t like the path I’m on, and I need to embrace the things others say are “different” about me, not get mad about it now that I’m showing my true colors

  36. Hello, I just started the Pagan religion. I have a friend who is also a Pagan though he’s been one for a long time now. He helped me realize that this religion is for me. I can feel it in my heart. My friend is a psychic/medium/witch. He’s helped me figure some things out like me being a witch. I was wondering what can I do to improve on my gifts/powers since they are weak?

  37. Hello, I was hoping you could ultimately “mentor” me in converting to the Wiccan religion. I’ve done my research, and read the philosophy of the religion, and I fully believe in all aspects of the peganistic religion, and are willing to go to the farthest extent to commit to doing so. I want to build myself, starting from the very bottom. I was really hoping you could help me with learning and practicing everything there is to know and do. Thank you!

  45. Hello my name is Patrick Bringe I have recently discover the Wiccan religion and find it calling to me more very day not as it does for most though it doesn’t call to me because I want to be different or rebel or be “cool” it calls to me because I have long wanted to live in harmony and a peaceful balance with nature and that is exactly this I realize that there is much about this religion that I do not yet know but I hope and I pray to the god and goddes that you may be able to change that for me so please contact me through email at that point I will give you both a number to call me at and also a number at which you can reach me by text I look forward to talking to you about this further please and thank you

  46. Hi,
    My name is Victoria and I am very interested in learning. I’ve been trying to learn on my own and have been asking my cousin for help she herself is also wiccan but its hard because she is very busy so I was wondering if you would have the time to help me out, please and thank you :).

  47. I would love more information on how I can become pagan/wiccan. I want to learn about herbs and what they can be used for. I want to learn everything about this because it’s always interested me, and because I know this is what I believe. Please email me?

  48. I am looking for dependable information on becoming wiccan and someone to answer my questions as they pop up. I have spoken to people about my beliefs on religion and they all said “oh, so you’re basically wiccan?”. I now want to look into this and see if maybe I am. I have never really thought about it before, but what I told these people about my personal beliefs that lead them to ask if I was wiccan does kind of line up with what little I have read about wiccans. Please email me when you find the time, thank you in advance!

    • Books! Read all the books! There are so many out there about Wicca.
      I’m currently reading Wicca and Witchcraft for Dummies and Drawing Down The Moon. These two books have helped immensely and I’m not even finished with either. There are so many different aspects to Wicca that just one area won’t be enough information.
      Hope this helps!

  49. Hi,

    Just like everyone else here, i too cannot deny that i myself are attracted to wicca in some ways and my bonus points is that ive got some folk culture believe in magick from my parents.

    What im trying to say is that ive already have a religion and its called Islam..and in our teachings we were not supposed to associate ourselves when it comes to witchcraft and the thing is ive always belong in this magickal path than the mainstream one.

    I live in brunei and yes the law in brunei does not tolerate with any magickal practices or we would be punished if we were caught.

    I feel like im living in the middle ages where one who practices such religion other than the mainstream one will be persecuted and to be made example to the public.

    In my heart of hearts i know for a fact that i love wicca but i do not have the resources considering i live in a land where religion such as this is widely banned harshly.

    I do not wish to announced myself as a witch or whatever in front of the public but if there is any help for me in order to practice it silently i would be obliged to do so…to the best of my abilities.

    • It is unfortunate that you are so torn. But as a beginner myself I can only suggest that you keep Wicca in your heart and silently give honor and praise. You love who and what you love and no one else can change that or even needs to know. Keep it sacred within yourself. This is the best I can offer.

  50. The best advice I was ever given on the topic of learning about Wicca… Read. Read everything. Do the year and a day study to empower your mind and your self. Just never stop learning, never stop asking questions, and never stop seeking answers.
