I'm mainly Pagan and identify as a Witch, a person who practices Witchcraft. I draw my spirituality from sources such as Wicca, Druidry, Shamanism, and Taoism. :)
As for what I believe happens after death, to be honest, I'm not sure. I have a few different "theories" that comfort me. I'm pretty sure that SOMETHING happens, but I also acknowledge the possibility of nothing happening. What I generally believe in is reincarnation, with a resting place in between lives. However, I also hold the Druidic belief of different worlds in which we can be reincarnated into, including worlds with beings with much more spiritual ability than humans. I also like the idea that, after some amount of time spent reincarnating, you can choose to become one with everything and stop existing as consciousnesses.

I don't put any "faith" in any fairytale a or happy endings . I do not believe in anything per se, I simply follow what science tells us. At this point, science tells us that when you die , you go braindead... without your brain you cannot experience consciousness as it is a result of complex interplay between neurons etc etc. So , when you die its lights out. The notion of some mystical or afterlife is the product of certain areas of our highly developed cortex. If there was a heaven and hell, all animals , all plants and every living organism would go there... as we are all derived from common ancestors. The only thing separating us from other organisms is humanity's  ego and delusion that we are somehow divine and special .  There is one good thing to look forward to, when I die ,I will decompose and my energy content will be released and fuel nutrient cycling/ survival / growth of other organisms. If only I could be requested to be thrown in the forest, no casket... nothing unnatural. The way it should be.

I think we are reincarnated. I've always felt I died in a car crash as a baby. This was way before seatbelts were even invented. I do think, also, this is why driving scares me so much I can hardly do it.
