My wife and I have made profound changes in our lives through green Paganism and simple, ecological living, which have resulted in unforeseen, yet very positive opportunities for peace, joy, laughter, and success. In fact, these opportunities have been so powerful, that I was stirred to share them with others, and not keep all these amazing discoveries to ourselves. We 'unplugged from the matrix' that is the cause of so much distraction and busyness in our lives and created a magickal Pagan homestead. I will share some of these discoveries of how, as a Pagan, you can simplify your life, while living more in sync with your purpose, nature and open up an incredible world of opportunity and possibility.

Join Me for a Stroll

It's been a few years since I left "the world of work" and embarked upon this journey with my wife. So many friends tried to talk us out of it, and some even stopped calling or coming by; many called us crazy, some called us brave. I guess it's not every day someone you know announces they're going to leave a good paying job, and the city, along with all its amenities, and move hundreds of miles away to start living a simpler life involving growing their own food, self-employment and getting back in touch with nature and their gods. Now that I think back, it was a crazy thing to do, but that's exactly what my wife and did.

Since then, we've also done other "crazy" things like become debt free, grow our own food, discover a much deeper connection with nature and the Divine. I'm excited to share some of the things we've learned so far on our journey, including the unforeseen challenges, spectacular failures and wonderful successes we've experienced along the way so far. If you're like me, you probably felt a strong urge to simplify your life because you feel like you've been missing something. For me, I felt as if I was just going through the motions, but wasn't actually living a Pagan lifestyle. Through this wonderful opportunity to reach out to you on PaganSquare, as well as my own site, I hope to not only provide you with useful information which you can apply to your own lives, but also the inspiration to become an example, in your own way, of how we can make a large positive change in the world, by making small, easily accomplished changes in our lives.

I'm not saying that everyone has to leave the city, plant some tomatoes and raise some chickens and goats in order to be Pagan or live a good life, how silly would that be? What I'm suggesting is that by sharing some of our experiences with you, I hope to help empower and inspire you to mold those experiences into goals and actions you can apply to make any similar changes that you wish.

Come join me for a stroll along this winding path.

Peter is an American of British and German ancestry who lives in Missouri with his wife Mary, where he is (re)discovering his connections with nature and the Gods. When he's not tending to their homestead, which feeds his family and provides an expression of gratitude and work in veneration to the Gods, he writes for several blogs, and works as a freelance artist/graphic designer. Having many years of experience in various forms of occult systems, including Asatru, Celtic, and Dragon Hollow Wicca, and Witchcraft, Peter finally found what he had been looking for all his life in a blend of Traditional Witchcraft (the nameless art), Heathenry and personal gnosis/exploration (vision/mystic).
