In my earlier video all about paganism I mentioned that I had come to paganism from a background of being a strong Christian. I totally get if it seems weird that this happened to me – or maybe not so weird? After all, the two faiths seem so different. There had to be some strong motivation for me to make the leap from one to the other. And there was.
Trust me, at the time the change it seemed unexpected, but looking back I can see how the seeds were planted years before. I had been unhappy for a long time with all of the dogma that I was being taught, and my conscience was telling me that a lot of what I was being told about my place in the world wasn’t accurate. I see now that for a long time before I switched, I had set my mind to change. And when we set our minds to change, it can’t not happen.
Since then I have met many people – many of them women – who have also left a Christian background to pursue a nature-based spiritual path. Exactly why so many of us do this is probably best left to another video. But my point is, I know I’m not the only one who has done who has had this experience. I am not saying at all that Christianity is bad. Quite the reverse; many of the problems I had were to do with people, not with this particular religion. However, for me and many others, adopting paganism has been the right thing to do. Allow me to elaborate.
So now I would like to hear from you. Have you had a similar experience in feeling unsatisfied with a traditional religion? Do you also believe that humans are not the centre of creation? Or do you disagree completely with me on everything I’ve said? Let’s chat below!
