Stepping Back From Blogging For Now

I have been feeling a pull away from words. At least, words in English. A pull towards quiet and towards a local focus… tea with friends in the neighborhood, the enchantment of my garden, and–most of all–the wellspring of turning inwards and back home to the heart, where the Voices of my beloved Gods and…

Rage Is Not “Lower Vibrational”

Rage is not “wrong.” Rage is not “lower vibrational.” Rage is our birthright. It screams through our bodies with a storm’s ferocity as a natural result of gross injustice. Rage is wise. It knows when the harm done has crossed beyond all words. Smiling agreeably, keeping silent, looking for a civil discourse, forcing ourselves to…

God-Marriage

An Egyptian God who is also a beloved friend, Djehuty (Thoth), specifically suggested that I write a general post about marriage between humans and Deities. It’s an interesting request coming from Him. While my understanding is that Djehuty has a number of mortal spouses, I myself do not have that sort of relationship with Him….

Channeling And Mediums

My first exposure to a channeled entity was in early 2010, when I was part of a short-lived but enjoyable “mysticism play group” that met at a local library. I was not yet Polytheist at that time and the group ended shortly before I became one. There was a meeting in which a channeler was…

The Life-Changing Magic Of Fantasy Worldbuilding

The first half of 2022 has not flowed easily or smoothly: for reasons both personal and collective, these times have felt heavy. Many things seem to take at least three times the effort they’d “normally” require. And so, I’ve been reflecting on how I got through choppy waters before. Now, you won’t see this on…

Outdoor Freya Shrine, Recent Changes

Recent changes to the outdoor Freya shrine. It’s funny, I did not plan the heart shape. The large reddish stone was a donation from Her father taken from my “Njord hörgr” further back in the yard. It worked perfectly with the rose quartz. I really love how this turned out.

Some Very Hard Lessons I Learned From Being A POA And Estate Administrator

This post is a huge divergence from this blog’s normal fare. I don’t enjoy getting into negatives, but it is also high time we had honest discussions about what administering an estate can entail.

Djehuty Leather Bookmark: Devotional Art

Acrylic paints and Dremel engraving on leather. He asked for artwork in the form of a wide bookmark. A few elements are based on a dream I had of Him last year.

Spirit Marriage When You Are Naturally Monogamous

Here’s a question: what if you are called to a spirit marriage, but your natural orientation is monogamous? I honor and support the many orientations that exist between respectful, consenting adults. Love is love is love! But I know that for myself, I am not wired for polyamory or anything of that nature. I am…

“What Patch Would I Be Wearing In Your Concentration Camp?”

There is only one question decent-hearted people who worship the Old Gods should ask when National Socialists appear: “What Patch Would I Be Wearing In Your Concentration Camp?” That is it. The beginning and end of any “discussion.” I write this because I see full-on dialogues. I see a person who blogs about Frisian language…
