    Greetings, Heather,

    If by "believing in Jesus" you mean that you believe in him as the son of God and that you pray mainly to the Christian God, then your best bets are likely to be Gnostic Christianity or one of the Druid groups that accept people of all faiths, like OBOD or ADF. These groups will accept your Christian beliefs, incorporate your areas of interest, and will not require you to believe in or worship, other Gods or to exclude the Christian God from your spiritual practice with them.

    If you mean that you accept Jesus as a prophet, but not as a God or an aspect of God, and if you are willing to step away from worshipping the Christian God, then many more avenues will be open to you. If that is case, let me know and I will say more on those possibilities.

    And I would agree with Amora: knowing what your ancestors practised is a huge key that can reveal much about why things do or don't feel *right* or *good* to you, as well as which feelings are coming from you and which you might have inherited from the past.
    If you don't know know, try to found out everything you can, from both sides of your family.

    Hope this helps!

    Arrow Just thinking...

    Have you read anything on Shamanism ?
    That may be the path for you...?
    Are you meditating at all ?

    Meditation helps, I can only do guided meditations
    do to a head injury...can't stay focused for long
    that's why I'm really liking candle magic !

    No I havent read anything on shamanism. Hmm, I will look it up. Ive got a book on meditation. I just mainly focus on my breathing and with every breathe I relax my muscles more then when Im all relaxed I let my mind wander freely but avoid any troublesome thoughts. Very new to meditating.

    You might find it interesting to see if there is a Unitarian Universalist Church in your area. Many UU churches also have sub groups called CUUPS - Covenant of Unitarian Universalist PaganS.

    You could try exploring your roots. If anything, it could help you feel more connected with your family history.

    I begin to sing of Pallas Athene, the glorious goddess, bright-eyed, inventive, unbending of heart, pure virgin, saviour of cities, courageous, Tritogeneia. From his awful head wise Zeus himself bare her arrayed in warlike arms of flashing gold, and awe seized all the gods as they gazed. But Athena sprang quickly from the immortal head and stood before Zeus who holds the aegis, shaking a sharp spear: great Olympus began to reel horribly at the might of the bright-eyed goddess, and earth round about cried fearfully, and the sea was moved and tossed with dark waves, while foam burst forth suddenly: the bright Son of Hyperion stopped his swift-footed horses a long while, until the maiden Pallas Athene had stripped the heavenly armour from her immortal shoulders. And wise Zeus was glad. And so hail to you, daughter of Zeus who holds the aegis!

    people already my have answered this - my mind is too belh to read through pages of responses but....
    just by this little blurb - i would say youre an eclectic pagan or wiccan... in general - eclectic since you believe in jesus(what that means to you idk) with empathy and intreset in native american stuff alogn with other skills - sounds a bit eclectic to me.
    so i sugges just - reading up on the things that you like and dig your own path the way i will be...
    cuz yeah- there are things i like and things a feel but nothing that fits into one nice tidy catagory....

    for me - i love the celtic art and music, but the dietes dont resonate as much with me, possibly because the names are difficult :P but the greek ones do - atleast some of them , especially Gaia...
    so yeah - read, discuss, make your own thing and dont rush it

    blessed be
