Chill Midsummer Playlist (Spotify) And May/June Energies

I put together a Spotify playlist for the Summer Solstice, a.k.a. Midsummer. It has a pretty relaxing vibe. I thought others might enjoy it too. I get the most out of it on shuffle-play, personally. The link is below at the end. The energies have been very intense lately. I get the feeling of huge…

New Outdoor Freya Shrine

The past week–the end of April and beginning of May–has been very intense for me. There are huge energetic shifts in the air lately, and added to that was my beloved cat losing his appetite last week. If you know cats, you know this is a bad thing. Even 36 hours without food can be…

Some Pros And Cons Of Spirit Marriage

I have written a little bit before about my spirit marriage, which in my case is deeply rooted in an oathed spiritual practice of sacred celibacy. In this piece, I’d like to explore a few potential pros and cons we humans might experience in a spirit marriage with a Divinity. I’ll start off with a…

Interesting Energy Update From Jenny Schiltz

Short post, but some readers may find this energy update of interest, as did I: The references to Gods and to Giants both jump out here.

Odin, A Comforting God

One of my closest Gods is Wodan/Odin. He has asked me to write about the relationship we have and of His deeply comforting sides. I’ll begin with how I do not relate to Him–but after conversing with a dear friend since first publishing this, please let me clarify that my intent is not to take…

The Sentient Rune Spirits

I’ve been meaning to write about this for a while, but it is a recent gross abuse of a Rune that has pushed me over the edge. Let me get the bad stuff out of the way first, then we’ll get into some gnosis/UPG that I can share as a runeworker. The bad: there is…

Artwork For The Goddess Gerda

My own work. The female figure is based on a fairytale relief carving I saw in the Crimea about thirty years ago. Woodburning with paints.

Excellent Article On Animal Souls And The Afterlife/Afterlives

Today I found an truly excellent article about why the “group soul” afterlife idea for animals who have crossed over is so very wrong: The Blob: Group Souls For Animals? As a Polytheist, I believe in many possibilities for what comes next. Hence, I prefer to use the term Afterlives, plural. Wherever we may fare,…

Experiences With Asperger’s And The Myers-Briggs Personality Test

This post is more about first-person experiences of psychology and identity rather than the Deities or spirituality. Please feel free to skip it if that is not your cup of tea! Here we go… I’ve been interested in the Myers-Briggs personality type indicator for around 20 years now and recently had a personal revelation surrounding…
