Finding My Way on the Crooked Path

I am sad to admit that my magical practices have been few and far between since leaving Wicca. I do a sprinkling of kitchen witchery, candle magic, and not much else these days, unless I can count divination.

Getting back on track with my spirituality has been my priority and the ADF dedicant path studies have more than adequately filled my time. But as I am about half way through the dedicant path, and feeling a lot more stable with my spiritual and devotional practices, I’m starting to think more about my future magical plans.

I’m struggling to find good resources for non-wiccan witchcraft, but there are a few gems out there. Many of the traditional witches I have come across online are adamant that the traditional crafts can’t be learned from a book. As idealistic and poetic as that sounds, I like books. Not for everything, mind you. But I have a hard time starting something without an introductory source text. I’m the sort who won’t touch any new technology (with some completely random exceptions) without reading the manual first. Is this an Aspie thing? I dunno, because I don’t think its very INTJ of me. *Shrug*

I’m strongly considering the Magician’s guild study program, also offered by ADF, once I finish the dedicant path. The ADF programs all seem to offer the structure I need while encouraging a healthy amount of independence. I want my cunning arts to be my own, I just need some guidance as I find my way.
