Samhain was this past Wednesday and it was a lovely evening. We cooked and set aside a plate for our ancestors and we feasted. We drank a little more than we normally do (which isn’t saying a lot, we don’t drink much) and it was a festive mood, even if it was only the two of us. We talked about family who have passed, telling stories and laughing. It was nice. Continue reading “Spiritual Saturday”
After my mild rant last week, I find myself relieved to tell you that there is in the works within the Sinnsreachd community to codify their beliefs and way of life. I’ve read the document and find that it does, as I had hoped, fit well with my own beliefs. It’s a very basic set of codes, but it tells me that others have been led the direction I’ve been pulled – though they are much further along the path than I am! Continue reading “Spiritual Saturday”
This week is the last of the five-part series on my Gods and this week I’m going to talk about Lir. I saved Him for last not because He’s least – none of my Gods are “least” in my mind or heart – but in part because He was the last one that came to me and because He is the most difficult to find information about. Continue reading “Spiritual Saturday”
Today is part four of my five-part series on my Gods and today I want to talk to you of Manannán mac Lyr. Now, I’ve found that Manannán to be one of the more popular Irish Gods in this day and age and it doesn’t surprise me. Continue reading “Spiritual Saturday”
Today is post three of my five-part series. Today I’m starting on my new Gods with Brighid (pronounced Bree-id, She has requested), as She has come through the loudest and clearest. I’m still learning quite a bit about my newest Goddess, but the thing I know through my personal experience with Her is the brightness of Her heart. Continue reading “Spiritual Saturday”
Today is the second part in the five-part series I’m doing on my Gods. Today I want to share with you my laughing God, the(An) Dagda.
As I have said before, when I left Christianity, it was Danu who gathered me in, She who I was able to connect with. But it was Dagda that showed me a loving God and helped me to understand how a warrior God could be a God of joy. Continue reading “Spiritual Saturday”
Okay, so I totally didn’t start working on this last night. I got sidetracked. But I’m here now, so that’s what counts! ^__^
As promised, today I want to talk to you about Danu, my mother Goddess, and the first to come to me. Please note, this is not a “definitive” piece on Danu, this is simply who She has shown Herself to be to me. Continue reading “Spiritual Saturday”
Almost missed it! My sleep schedule has gotten a little off again, which means my 7-ish hours of sleep today were between 11am and 6pm. Guh. But I’m here!
So, I’ve only been moving down this new section of my path for about a week and I’m surprised to tell you that I find myself not with a single new Deity calling me to Them, but three. Seriously. I’ve spent the last 12 years worshiping one God and one Goddess, and suddenly I find myself being taken in by a Goddess and two Gods. It’s nuts! But it’s also completely amazing.
