Many popular religions talk of conversion, some with an emphasis on it. Paganism is not one of those religions. First of all, “paganism” is not really a religion; it is an umbrella term for a collection of spiritual paths and traditions which share common themes and values. Many people do call themselves religious and pagan, and Wicca can be considered a pagan religion. Most people who call themselves pagan discovered it as part of a spiritual journey.
There are many ways one can discover that they are pagan; they become disillusioned with their current religion, they want a spiritual path which connects them to nature,
, they feel a connection to the feminine divine and want a spiritual path which reflects it,

, just do not yet have a name for it; and want a community which they can be involved in. Some are pagan and don’t know it.
Discovering that you are pagan is always an individual journey. Some additional signs that a pagan path may be right for you are:
