The path of Love is treacherous. Walk it blind, and you will only fall. It can break you. Sprint down it, and you will be lost. It can turn you around and lead you far and away.
Do not walk blinded. Do not race down it in a rush. Take the way with ease and sense, else suffer the misfortune of Love’s lost ones.
Decide what you want. Believe you can have it. Believe you deserve it and believe it’s possible for you. And then close your eyes every day for several minutes, and visualize having what you already want, feeling the feelings of already having it. Come out of that and focus on what you’re grateful for already, and really enjoy it. Then go into your day and release it to the Universe and trust that the Universe will figure out how to manifest it.

The answer to this that depends on a couple of different things. Are you interested in joining a Coven, or would you prefer to be a solitary Witch? Do you have a chosen sect (Wiccan, Neo-Pagan, etc) or are you seeking this more for spirituality than for a religion?
Witchcraft is unique in that it can answer many different needs of a person. When I was initiated, it was with two Witches whom I practiced with. While that experience is cherished and loving, I now believe that it was much later when I practiced alone that I really initiated myself to the Craft.
Truly, an initiation is an announcement to the Universe that you have claimed your Witch self (as I call her) and have given her a name by which the Universe and all its enormous power can recognize you. Your Witch is sacred to you, and should also be to your Coven if you’ve chosen to join one. My best advice is to take your time in this; define for yourself who you are as a Witch, what you both provide for and take from, and who you hope to be as a Witch in the future.
Regardless what sect you may be apart of, or if you are Solitary or in a Coven, I recommend providing offerings to the Universe (or deities/energies as you may recognize them) upon your initiation. Announce yourself in good faith with meaningful offerings; understand that you have begun to ascend a very, very high ladder and are only at the bottom…Pull the favors of the deities and energies you worship by being true about your purpose, and offering more than just spilled wine or woven wreaths. Offer something you care about or that you must think of every day; such as if you’re a smoker, forfeit the habit. It sounds juvenile, but these are the tasks that I’ve found more rewarded than simple physical-world things. Commit yourself to studying the Craft daily, or offer an oath to help the stray animals you see in the name/respect of your Gods/belief. Offer the Universe something real, something It can use to improve.
While all of the above may not have been what you’re looking for — but I hope it may guide you towards what you’re seeking. Remember that Witchcraft is what YOU make of it…No one can tell you the perform rituals this way or that. Your magic is yours and is sacred between you and your Gods; use it the way your soul is telling you. Meditate and focus yourself, or seek a mentor who may be able to help balance you.
Best of luck on your path, and write again if you’re in need.
