The Real Way To Rid Yourself Of An Entity (dark, or otherwise)
#21
No, and as a Northern pagan I have a lot of leeway when it comes to which holidays I celebrate. I only really do 3:

Walpurgisnacht (Mayday)
Winter Nights (Halloween-ish)
Ostara (Easter)

Occasionally I'll toss in a prayer of party on another holiday, though.

What's the main difference between being pagan or into witchcraft?

Witchcraft is a form of magic. Paganism is a religion. Witchcraft has no Gods or philosophy, while paganism (or neo-paganism rather) draws from ancient sources for information on Gods and philosophy.

I guess in witchcraft you are your own god. In your pagan religion do you set up an altar to the God or Goddess of your choice or to a nature spirit?

I don't have an altar, but I have a wight house set up for the house spirits. Basically a tiny altar.

I still honor Gods, though. I pray and make offerings (among other things) to Odin and Nerthus, and I tried to make a connection with another Goddess in the past but she didn't seem to like me much.

I also work with nature spirits, especially an oak in my backyard.

The Goddess was jealous, you know how women are. I knew a pagan couple down in Tampa and the looked and acted just like free spirited hippies. They both had long hair and the husband had a crazy wild beard. They didn't eat meat but they chickens for the eggs. They grew their own vegetables and they had an oak tree in the back yard that had the shape of a naked woman, naturally. It grew like that. Well, that was their altar. She used to play a homemade flute the husband carved out of bamboo. He had a banjo. They were always nice to us children, and they let us play with their chickens. I moved away but I never forgot them.

Punky you said earlier about smudging and sage being new age-y but it's a very ancient Native North American tradition rather like your tradition.
I will add that for me it's really about the intent not the deed!.Smile

Really? Did not know. I was never one for Native American culture.

Although to be fair, chakras are an ancient Indian concept, but I wouldn't touch those with a 10-foot pole because of how little I know about Hinduism and the fact they are randomly tossed into peoples practice.

LOL...that's something I love about this forum...we all have different paths yet are able (hopefully and usually) to add to the knowledge. I would love to know more about your path, I know a little of Norse mythology but....!Smile
My philosophy the more knowledge the better and then go with what suits you.
