Here’s a snapshot of what I believe, and things to keep in mind as a reader of this blog.
- I believe in the Seven Principles of Unitarian Universalism. (You can read these here.)
- I believe that magic is real and can be used for change both good and bad.
- I believe that multiple Gods and Goddesses exist, each with their own distinct personalities (commonly referred to as hard polytheism), and that they are both within the world and beyond it (a theological perspective known as panentheism).
- I believe in faeries and other spirits of nature that can be perceived in various ways.
- I believe the Ancestors are important beings that deserve respect and veneration, as they have gifts for us.
- I believe in the notion of an “Otherworld” where spiritual beings reside and perhaps interact.
- I acknowledge the cycle of death and rebirth of all living things.
- I acknowledge and celebrate the eight Pagan holidays throughout the year as important markers in the Earth’s seasonal cycle.
- I acknowledge the reality of climate change, and feel that as a Pagan, I must do my part to help the Earth.
- I don’t believe in the concept of original sin. I believe that we are each born as intended, which must be celebrated.
If have any questions about my beliefs (or non-beliefs), please feel free to ask in the comments below. However, please do not try to convert me to your own belief system; we each must respect others’ views.
