This is actually sorta long and rambling and mostly irrelevant to my path so it is going below the cut. Continue reading
Day 23 – Blessing
The cliche is, it is a blessing to work with the Morrigan. Perhaps it is simply the fact that she chooses to work with someone that makes it a blessing. When it comes to the Morrigan, she chooses who she works with more so than any other deity I have encountered. If she doesn’t wish to work with you, she will not condescend to work with you. She is very particular with whom she chooses to work.
And of her chosen warriors and poets, because that is really what her devotees are for her, she blesses them many times over. For me, those blessings are slowly being discovered. I have been blessed with her protection over the years, even before I knew she choose me to work with. She has blessed me with gifts I have yet to fully figure out.
But each moment working with the Morrigan as my guide, my goddess, my companion, my queen, has been a blessing on my path. Things have been clearer since devoting myself, though there are still periods of fogginess as to where my path is leading, but her blessing is that it will get there.
Day 24 – Comfort
To bounce off the idea of blessing, the Morrigan has been a great comfort on my path. One of her blessings allows me to feel that comfort that she gives. Her dark winged presence wraps me in a warm comfort that I cannot often fully explain, but it is there. I feel safe and protected in that embrace. I feel comforted in her nature and where she is leading me.
She does not offer a coddling comfort. Far from it. But her presence, her stern expression and directness of manner, her lack of enabling one to wallow in grief and self-pity, and her understanding all grant a deep comfort. I know not to seek pity and overt sympathy from her. To get otherwise would destroy that comfort I find in her. I do not go to get to be told everything will be all right and to keep my chin up and she’ll make everything better. I go to her to get upset and frustrated with her stoic composure that waits for me to realize that the things I don’t like can be changed if I get my head out of my ass and take charge to make the changes myself. And in that, strangely enough, is the comfort she gives me. She reminds me that I am in control of my own fate, my own choices, my own destiny and that gives a deep sense of comfort that can terrify the less prepared.
The end of the summer session of school caused me to get a little behind in things for this blog and my path. I have a bit of a break before the fall semester begins. I figured it would be a good idea to check in briefly with my plans and how things have been going.
I never finished the Month of Written Devotion for the Morrigan but I think that will be one of the things I do these next couple weeks. I want to finish that up for her and for myself. I think I may do a second one for Lugh. While I am not necessarily devoted to him I feel like it would be a good time of the year to do some work with him more and the MoWD may very well help with that. The Morrigan wanted me to work with for a reason before so I better keep it up some how.
I have a plan of what I want to write for my other, memoirish blog. I planned out some posts that I need to cover. It is going on seven years since my senior year began that created so many problems and issues and finally led to me being where I am today. It is really about time I wrote about all of it. My goal is to try to write one a week and right now, that will take about 30 weeks. >.< It may try two a week, depending on what those posts are about.
I have had a lot of really vivid dreams lately, but unfortunately I keep forgetting them soon after I get out of bed. They are quite chaotic of dreams too. I can’t even place a theme to any of them. But I know they are vivid. There is so much happening in the dreams that it leaves me in an odd state when I wake up. And I can’t remember them, which makes them particularly annoying to have.
I need to get back into doing my Tarot and divination again. It is still the start of the month where I can do my month ahead spread. I may or may not get back into doing a weekly spread, but we’ll see.
But anyway, I guess this is me checking in. Hopefully, you’ll get to see more from me again here. 🙂
