I'm a Dabbler. I'm still fairly new to witchcraft and paganism; this world was only opened up to me a few years ago. And so I dabble, looking for what rings true to me.
I primarily work with the Celtic pantheon, but Ganesh and Shiva have places on my altar. There's a prayer to Kali on my wall. Raven as the Trickster speaks to me often. Odin speaks strongly to my husband. And Grandfather Thunder, well, he has a place in my heart as well.
I work with candles, oils, rocks, poetry. I have several Tarot decks but have yet to find the right one. I like using astrology as insight to people's personalities, but don't use it as a divination tool.
It's a little of everything, and I have yet to find out where precisely I fit in.
For a while I thought "oh! Kitchen Witchery! I love to cook!" But I don't cook potions, I cook dinner. My husband works with the weather on occasion (well, rarely, as the weather patterns tend to snap back; equal and opposite reactions and all that) but while I love weather - I can't affect it. I've performed a ritual or two, but I can't help but feel silly while doing so.
How does one find the right path? Is there a right path? I'm still searching, and enjoying myself along the journey, which I think is an important part of it. I will continue reading, and learning of others' paths, and incorporating what I like into my own. That's one of the most amazing parts of the internet; the ability to learn about other paths, other religions, other lifestyles, other cultures. To dabble.
How did you find your path?
