I am wanting to restart my journey into Wicca. I know this is what I want and what I feel is right for me. I used to be but bc of a few people I left. But I am feeling called back and it is what I feel I must do. I know it is right for me. But I fear my wife's reaction. We have 2 kids and another on the way and I fear she will tell me to leave. I know it is a possibility. I just want to know if anyone has any tips on telling your spouse. I want to restart my wiccan journey but I want her to be apart of it. I am prepared for the chance she will reject, I don't wanna hide it from her.

Last night she found out I was researching Wicca. And I was forced to talk about it and she was hurt. Reminded me of pain that happened last time I started my path back in 2011. My mentor went mad and opened up the door to a lot of bad spirits.
Not sure how a mentors mental health issues 'opens doors to bad spirits' or gave you pain. U both might want 2 considr that mentor, being mad, didn't give you a good impression of Wicca. Research might help you both with misconceptions and fears.
It's more complicated than 250 characters can allow. But I understand what you are saying
I agree it's more complicated, you might want to consider a forum post rather than using the answers format to get a good discussion going.
She told me that if i go down a wiccan path she can't have it around the kids. She is afraid. And reminded me of my experience last time when my mentor went mad and many bad spirits were oppressing me.
Refuses to go to counseling. Tried
Hon you sound like you have bigger problems than religious differences here and definitely need to look into marriage counseling. And you definitely want to find a better source from which to learn Wicca than a person having mental health issues.
Thank you Mackenzie
