My name is Loona Wynd. I am 26 years old. I have been studying paganism and religions since I was 13. My mother raised me in the United Church of Christ. She was raised Catholic. I am like her in many ways in that I feel children should be exposed to and involved in spirituality. I was a member of my church’s junior choir for several years. I also assisted in Sunday School teaching.
I am a true scorpio. My birthday is November 7th.
Religiously I identify as a witch. I do not practice Wicca as I have not been initiated into Wicca (see my post on why I am not Wiccan). I am a dedicant in the Temple Tradition of witchcraft but I am a firm hard polytheist. I believe that all deities exist and are separate beings. To that extent I believe that the Roman and Greek deities are different as they mythology is slightly different as were the rituals.
I worship a God and Goddess that are five fold in nature. I also worship the Norse deities from time to time. My understanding of my deities is still developing. I feel that there is a lot I can still learn. I also feel that the deities I worship are different from the deities of other witchcraft traditions. I do feel that I can honor other deities through reading their mythology and acknowledging that they exist.
I refuse to worship deities that are closed to me. The Temple of witchcraft book series by Chris Penczak mentions Celtic deities from time to time. I will not worship those deities as there are some celtic deities that are bound by oath to only accept worship from certain people. The same goes for other cultures like the Japanese and possibly the Hindus and Voodoun. I can not ethically worship those deities. However if I were invited to a ritual that honored those deities by those people I would participate and honor them as well as I could. Aside from that I will not worship Gods of closed cultures.
I am also a college student. For many years I have gone down the psychology/social work path. I wanted to have my LCSW (licensed Clinical Soical worker) or any other sort of therapist. Due to my personal issues that have arisen in the past due to my training I have decided to leave that path. I am currently studying Philosophy and Anthropology. At some point I would like to own a metaphysical healing center where I can teach magic,occult, and philosophy, heal, and write. Studying theology, philosophy, and anthropology are things that may help me get to that point.
I have my first degree in Usui Reiki by Yvvone Thibedeau. I plan on training in other healing traditions and continuing my training in Reiki. I was unable to continue my training under my first Master due to distance. It was not practical for me and I have not yet been able to complete or pursue my training. I will at some point in time.
I enjoy performing. I have done several community theater and high school theater productions. I have been involved in Chorus since I was nine and in the third grade. I am a member of the College chorus. I was involved in Band as well. I played the flute. I still play from time to time when I desire to play music. At one point in time I did know how to play the piano, and like the flute it is something I would like to do more of.
I also like to write. I would love to get a book published at some point. Actually I would like to get a series of both nonfiction and fiction books published. I have started this Blog so that I may still get some writing done and out there. Who knows. Maybe at some point some of these writing will appear in a book. For now this is a place for me to write my thoughts out and get them down.
I have also studied the martial art of Jukado. I do consider myself a martial artist. My martial arts training has influenced my views on the world.
Any way that is it about me.
