Hi everyone :)

 

So i was wondering if anyone has a guide?! Do you believe in them!? How did you make first contact?! How did you know you had one? Was it signs or did you just have a feeling you werent alone?!

 

Im curious because ive been on other more spiritual forums and they talk about guides alot but none of them are Pagan. I was just wondering if guides play a big part in Paganism?

 

Thank you all in advance? x

I've got a Guide in the living room that's driving me spare, she's yours if you want her (just don't tell my cousin, I'll say I lost her on the way to the Guide hut).

 

Guides in the form of inner animal spirits or otherworldly beings are a part of many types of Druidry, used more as a sounding board or a companion for pathworking/journeying than in the Derek Acorah sense. It can be useful to have a regular character appear in pathworkings to act as a kind of spirit guide but I don't think many Druids believe these constructs to be much more than a way to tap into the unconscious.

I kind of have an inner guide, in the form of a pictish man (sort of). I am not sure whether he is a spirit (like what a medium contacts) but his advice has been pretty sound so far...

I believe I have lots of guides. A small number may stay with me through out my life but most will come and go.

 

I also believe that guides will not tell you how to live your life. They only ever guide you to yourself, and the best guide you can ever have is your own inner voice.

 

But like I said this is just what I personally believe.

      I’ve posted a link (in links) to a BBC article in today’s news just to illustrate a bit of the colourful side of Paganism.  Perhaps it will do something to balance my prosaic take on the subject. i know little of Witchcraft but I enjoyed the article and like her approach.

      👍 It's as good a position as any and better than quite a few.

      Yes, it was in Nettle's "Who are your deities?" thread. I said "I seem to have become an atheist. That was never my plan, but here I am." Veggiedancer later said it better than me - "I don’t exactly believe in deities as such. I think they come from  our minds. Archetypes, ways of identify or characterising the spirit/ magic/ life or whatever it is we sense around us. Ways our minds try to explain the unexplainable to us???"
    • Moonsmith
      I’m probably second guessing Nettle wrongly but it wasn’t all that long ago that you would have read posts about alters, magic, Shamanism, spells etc. I think it was either Teatimetreat or Drachenfach that had a hex on her handbag and her car.  When the car was stolen it crashed and the thief was caught. I agree and would very much like to see more of the colourful side of Paganism back here.  Quite right Ellinas.  I do not understand how anyone can claim to be Pantheist (or even pantheist) and atheist at the same time even though the most prominent Pantheists do exactly that.  As I’ve said elsewhere: why can’t they call themselves Panists.  The prefix “pan” means everything and everywhere as in “pandemic”.  The god’s name arose from the adjective so it wouldn’t necessarily mean a devotee of Pan. pee ess - it may be worth mentioning that there are a vast number of belief groups under the umbrella word Paganism.  Druids Witches, Polytheist and Shaman are only a small part of what the greater picture of Paganism depicts. Dunno and don’t care are probably the biggest groups.

      All the above, plus the impression of a preponderance of atheism is currently, as well as historically, inaccurate.  Certainly, I am no atheist.  I believe MS rejects the term as applicable to himself.  Stonehugger, I think, recently said he had headed in that direction, but I've not seen the other resident atheists for a while. However, our ideas of deity are not the same, necessarily.
