at this moment

I am grateful to Hermes and Sigyn especially in moments of despair. One showed me the flaws and fractures in my faith and the Other how to restore and strengthen it. For small miracles and Their patience…I am grateful.

    Im glad that you’ve gained insight from the gods, for a way forward. Sorry to hear of your despair. I hope it passes soon 🙂


  3. Hello Galina, I hope you are well. I’m no specialist and I’m just starting to learn and to walk the Paths of our Gods… but I feel there’s something going around, some kind of attack, I don’t want to sound paranoid, maybe I’m mistaken, maybe it’s just me… but I’ve been through so much lately… One little story: a Goddess asked me to feed some wild geese on a local pond some weeks ago and last weekend the local government killed about 1000 of these geese… only around 100 remained. The gov said that the birds were displacing other birds, they lied saying that they took them to other ponds… It broke my heart to check that the small group of geese that survived were precisely the geese that were most attached to me… these birds were the ones that used to follow me to my car and ask for more food (I recognized them for some special features on two of the leading males). Anyway… sometimes we just don’t know what’s going on and all we have to do is trust our Gods… They Know better than us.

    • Vanesa, you are not mistaken….i think there is definitely some kind of attack going around. we’re all called to be resilient and strong in our devotion and sometimes it’s hard….but you re right; Gods know better than we and that’s part of the discipline of devotion: learning to trust, to truly have that bone deep knowledge. I’m still working on that myself!

  4. Hail to Hermes! Hail to Sigyn! I find Hermes and Sigyn are very loving and protective ot Their devottees. Take good care.


  5. I have been having issues with finding motivation for devotional work, myself. Not doing devotions, leaving the last libation of tea just sit in the libation bowl,… and if you leave it too long tea starts moulding, and when today I finally poured it out in the garden and cleaned the bowl I saw there were indeed small patches of mould on it. Just now I did my first devotional activity in a week or so, just lighting candles, pouring a small libation to some Deities and offering a stick of incense. No hymns or anything, just very basic. Hopefully, I can keep that going and then start getting back into proper praxis again.
