How I Became A Polytheist

Polytheism is so much a part of who I am now that it is hard to remember a time when I did not believe in individual Gods and Goddesses, when I wrote Them off as impossibilities or as lesser archetypes not truly deserving of worship. Still, I will do my best to describe a profound … Continue reading How I Became A Polytheist

Physically (?) Seeing Energies And Auras

Recently the beautiful Bealtaine Cottage blog shared some pictures of energies being visible in the physical world, towards the bottom of the post. A materialist would say "lens flares," but I am not a materialist and--photography aside--seeing energies in the "physical" is something that I have experienced. It started about 17 years or so ago, … Continue reading Physically (?) Seeing Energies And Auras

Woodburning of The God Forseti

This is a Forseti woodburning I made four years ago. The scenery is inspired by pictures of Thingvellir. His name is a heiti for "hawk" in Old Norse, so one is included. The whalebone rune-staff, based on a find from Jirnsum in the Netherlands, is dated to the 8th century and is thought to have … Continue reading Woodburning of The God Forseti

“Forgiveness Is Not Essential To Love”

These words may seem very alien and jarring at first. Look deeper, and they are liberating. Demands to forgive seem to permeate the very air. New Age or "generally spiritual" sites are quick to imply or outright state that you are at fault if you can't, don't, or won't forgive. The pressure to forgive is … Continue reading “Forgiveness Is Not Essential To Love”

For The Love Of The Gods, Stop Confusing Autism With Sociopathy

It began innocently enough. I was looking up a question that interested me, as a middle-aged woman with Asperger's, and in response one of Google's top links was a site by alleged partners of Aspies who see everyone on the Spectrum as cruel, abusive, unfeeling robots. This sort of confusion pops up too on shows … Continue reading For The Love Of The Gods, Stop Confusing Autism With Sociopathy

A Great Book For Spiritworkers – “The Ghost And Mrs. Muir”

While the 1947 movie is a classic, here are a few reasons I prefer the original book "The Ghost And Mrs. Muir" by Josephine Leslie (R.A. Dick) written in 1945. To my mind, this is a must-read for certain types of spiritworkers. One of the first things to love about this book is that it … Continue reading A Great Book For Spiritworkers – “The Ghost And Mrs. Muir”

Energy Updates And Thoughts On “The Light”

This post is especially "woo." I think it is worth sharing some impressions of recent energy changes, from the view of a Polytheist and mystic. You'll find these discussions more often in New Age circles, but their assumptions are often rooted entirely in Monism or Monotheism. This may seem counter to all sense looking at … Continue reading Energy Updates And Thoughts On “The Light”

Forseti’s Ring And A Bad Night At The Police Station

Like many souls lately, I find that silence has grown very toxic. A dripping-acid cloak that must be flung off. This is my story about a bad night at the police station. I used to work as an entry-level judicial officer. Not a full judge, but I was the person the public would often see … Continue reading Forseti’s Ring And A Bad Night At The Police Station

Infinite Diversity In Infinite Combinations

If you are a Trekkie, this phrase is instantly recognizable. To me, it represents a great strength of Polytheism and also a vision that humanity worldwide will hopefully embrace more and more. On the Polytheist side: with many Gods (indeed, an infinite diversity of Them) we have a freedom to celebrate the Other, and Others. … Continue reading Infinite Diversity In Infinite Combinations
