If you're not a Wiccan, how can a Wiccan be your creator, please?

Could you explain what you mean? It's a little confusing.

I'm a realist and very spiritual as well. Not to offend any one but who and how can any one say that they are so great as to have the all knowing power or knowledge to be able to catergorize an intangible unseen being or deity? I'm soo sure there is something, there has to be. ive seen and done things that cannot be logically explained. Though labels of christianity, buddism, wicca and the rest are just human invented to make us feel that we have a grasp of things when we really don't. But I have used incantations and spells (not praying to any particular god) that have followed through, so much to wonder.....

It is a little offensive- but I think it's offensive because it isn't what we're saying. Ignoring what we're saying and stating something completely misleading and exadurated and then addressing that rather than what is being said is a bit like the Chewbacca Defense.

I think those labels are used to communicate different ideas quickly.

And I think that's good. But that doesn't make it Wicca.

i know a necro is a necromancer.
Necromancy is a form of magic in which the practitioner seeks to summon the spirit of a deceased person, either as an apparition or ghost, or to raise them bodily, for the purpose of divination.

I Do Have a question on the matter of initiation, origionally in the Old Practice the rite of initiation was symbolised by the Skyclad ceremony under the full moon at the equinox. poor rich and all were welcome and stood as one body together, the initiate would then "derobe" as a symbol of the joining, however the The Goddess Said "Come to me my children as you are called for all are welcome" so in a sense could you not technically induct yourself by profession of faith and consecration of yourself to the goddess under the full moon, by making a vow to her?

Necromancy comes from the greek roots of Necro meaning dead Mancy- meaning the way of or the spirit of. so the literal translation is the path of the dead or the spirit of the dead. and no it's not related to wicca in fact wiccan's despise the raising or calling of the dead with the exception of samhain, and only then because the dead are close to our worls and the god is leading the procession.

As a Seeker my take on this is that call those who are called to be Wiccan will find the right coven- that isn't quite the same as suggesting self initiation.
