My livejournal pseudonym is Mila Anie (my goddess calls me ‘child’ and ‘duckling’). I’m nineteen years old and I’m studying biological sciences / medicine in a rural university campus. I spend my life divided between living with my partner and several friends in my state’s capitol city when I’m not attending school and living with my parents (who live closer to my university’s campus) when I’m attending school for several days at a time. I would like to pursue paramedicine. I consider myself a writer, but really I have no interest in attempting to be published. I enjoy world music and I play the bass guitar.
I am a non-religious neo-pagan with no interest in coven-based work or a structured faith system. I’ve been raised in this environment and many of my beliefs are what I was told as a little girl, rather than what I’ve read in books. I’m owned by Kali Maa, who took possession of me almost a year ago. Until that point, I’d only been interested in deities as concepts, archetypes and the sources for interesting stories and mythos. I pay respect to Shiva because I feel that it’s appropriate, given my relationship with his consort. I’m intensely interested in shamanism, especially as it relates to my heritage; my maternal great-grandmother was part of the Lairmairrener tribe (Big River tribe) of Hobart, Tasmania and I feel that blood is an important part of shamanism.
I hope that I can find a few friends here, even if this community does seem a little bit, ah, dead ~
It’d be good to be able to get in contact with other pagans, as I don’t actually know any pagans ‘irl’ outside my own family.
