Hi everyone. Hmmmm....where to begin? My chosen name is Raven. I went through a couple of names (Crystal-Lupa, Crystal Cougar) before I woke up one morning with the name Raven on my lips. I then knew that this is who I was.
My early life is the typical story. I was raised in a Roman Catholic family. Although there are many beautiful things about the Catholic religion I knew that something was missing and it just didn't feel right for me. I left the church and wandered around aimlessly for a few years not knowing which direction I was going in. My life wasn't going as planned and things were happening in it that wasn't making me happy. I was even to the point where I didn't believe that any sort of Creator, God/Goddess existed at all.
I had found Native American Spirituality and practiced it for about 7 years. A couple of years ago I realized that although the beliefs and spirituality that I had were very fulfillling, there was still something missing. Before my Native Spirituality I had found Wicca/Witchcraft and was intently interested for a while. For some reason, though I turned away from it. I guess it just wasn't my time yet. Two years ago my interest developed again and I started doing research and joining groups relating to Witchcraft. I had found the missing pieces that I needed to complete my path. Although it has been five years now I still consider myself a novice and still learning (I am sure that I always will be). My main interests are the Norse, Greek, Celtic and Egyptian Pantheons. My other interests are Crystals and Crystal Healing, Herbal Healing, Essential Oils, Candle Magick, Reiki and Divination (I have a pendulum that I am learning to use, a set of runes and about 5 decks of tarot cards that I will eventually learn how to use properly).
