    I would guess the majority of MW'ers would identify as eclectic, whether they say "eclectic Pagan", "eclectic Witch", etc. :D

    You are not alone, nor is this phenomena related solely to witches. I heard a professor of religion speak and his entire discussion was regarding this. There is a trend occurring in American society, whereby people are doing religion buffet style. A large percentage of the population defines themselves as 'spiritual' now, rather than by any specific denomination. They are taking bits and pieces from many different faiths, and incorporating these ideas into their own beliefs and practices. Some interpret this trend as being part of the age of Aquarius, where individual spiritualities become the norm.

    I guess I am O.o I don't really have much of my path figured out yet, so I just kinda do what feels right (or what I'm shown that works). I'm just trying to find a path right now

    I'm definitely Eclectic.
    Mostly self taught... pick things up here and there.

    I've met a few people that looked down on me for being 'pathless' whereas I embrace it fully. It doesn't get to me anymore, but it sure used to bother me. I usually just don't discuss my spirituality outside of MW and a few other places online.

    I don't know a whole lot of Pagans or Witches in person either.

    Magically, I am definantly eclectic, as I will take what works and use it, religiously, while I think the Sumerian one is for me, I wouldn't mix and match, that said, I do hold some personal spiritual beliefs that probably weren't a part of the religion like I'm also an animist, I believe everything has some kind of spirit and/or god in it, everything in nature is alive to me (and I don't just mean trees, stones, mountains, etc, I also mean cities, things that aren't defined as "natural" such as plastic, and concepts, etc).

    I'm eclectic in my Witchcraft, not as much with religious devotion, but to a degree I am. I don't tend to wrap my Witchcraft into the religious aspect of my life any more than it is intrinsically so.

    Absolutley, I'm eclectic. Although I do, because it's the path I identify the MOST with, call myself a Christian Witch.

    "I believe in the fundamental truth of all great religions of the world. I believe that they are all God-given and I believe that they were necessary for the people to whom these religions were revealed. And I believe that if only we could all of us read the scriptures of the different faiths from the standpoints of the followers of these faiths, we should find that they were at bottom all one and were all helpful to one another.

    I have my eclectic moments. I generally stay within the Wiccan format, however, when it comes to witchcraft, and with Kemetic deities. Occasionally Greek.

    I used to be very eclectic, but that was before I sort of discovered my way.
