Basically I am incredibly new to wicca and witchcraft. I got very interested in it because of a few books I got for general research of the Wiccan religion.
I have been eating these books up, becoming more invested in Wicca and witchcraft and feeling more of a connection than with any other kind of belief or practice.
I soon went online and found youtubers such as Harmony Nice, Owlvine Green and of course the lovely Witch of Wonderlust <3
The thing is, the main book I bought which really got my into witchcraft and want to start learning more about wicca is called “Wiccapedia“ by Shawn Robbins and Leanna Greenway. But today I found out this book, my main source of inspiration, is in fact full of misunformation and incorrect uses of certian words and is generally terrible, which I did not know since I am a complete novice.
So I am right now, just sitting on my bedroom floor with a false, half read book, kinda feeling deflated and like I lost all motivation. It sounds weird but it feels like a really big betrayal now I am really nervous to study any more, in fear it’s false and again going through putting a lot of passion into something only for it to be lies.
The other book I got called “The Wicca Handbook” seems okay, I did some research and no negativity to what I could find but I am still hesitant.
This really sucks because I finally found a path I really resonated with and this instance just kinda killed it for me.
I am kinda at a low point, this journey brought me out of a bad place but now I feel like I have been thrown back in ten fold.
I am sorry for how long this post is but I am just looking for some advice, guidance or anything really? I feel like I am overreacting but none the less, the feelings are still there.
Thank you for reading <3
