How I came to Paganism and Honouring Gaia

My first guide and inspiration will always be Gaia.  She is the personification of the Earth, the very land we stand upon.  She nurtures us and supports us.

How I came to Paganism and Honouring Gaia

Before I became Pagan I became a conservationist at a very young age.  Our house had a large garden and beyond were fields and woods.  So nature was just right outside the door.

It was a tiny dead sparrow on the side of the road that brought me to conservationism.  I found him when I was about 6 years old and I couldn’t understand why he was there.

My uncle explained he had most likely been clipped by a car and been killed.  We took him home and buried him.  This little death shocked me.  The idea that this beautiful soul had just died randomly because of a car seemed so wrong.

This led me to read and study and search.  I poured my passion into doing what I could for nature, wildlife, the environment.  When I finally found Paganism this all just seemed to fit.

Gaia, the Great Mother, the Earth.  She had been what I had been protecting and fighting for.  The collective energies of every living thing.

These energies were given names.  They were personifications of attributes and values.  So I found myself drawn to the divinities known as Artemis, the Huntress.  To Isis, the Egyptian Goddess.  To Epona, the Horse Goddess.  To Hecate, the Dark Goddess.  Bast, the Cat Goddess

But not just to the feminine energies, but to the masculine as well.  As our world is a duality.  To Herne, the Hunter.  To Anubis, the God of Death.  To Odin, the All-Father.

I now walk the Crooked path.

So dear readers, what brought you to the Crooked Path?
