I’m feeling so much love in my life today. My love for my Gods is a big part of that. They are my family. They are my protectors and my guides. I think I loved Them before They helped me. There was that initial attraction and joy. It has grown into deep relationships. I am so blessed to have Them in my life. For once, today I am content. Blessings to you all.

It has been a very long time since I’ve posted here, so this will be extremely rambly. It seems like a lot and nothing at all has happened over the last several months. I’m still working with Djehuty. He wants me to deepen my knowledge and share it with people. I’m not sure exactly how to go about that, but I’m sure I’ll find out. I’m trying to read as much as I can (not just Kemetic things). Maybe someday someone will find it useful. I’m thinking of asking Djehuty to help me look for a new job. My job isn’t bad at all, but I’d like different hours. Right now I work from 6pm-2:30am, but at least I get weekends off. I’m nervous to ask for His help, but He has offered to help me in that area if/when I’m ready.
Sekhmet-Mut is still around. She gets all of my Diet Coke offerings. ~_^ She has been very supportive. Like all of my Deities, She is encouraging me to do shadow work. I’ve been avoiding shadow work, but I know it would help me immensely. One of my goals for this week is to do a short session, even if it is really short. I need to work on taking small steps so that I can accomplish big goals instead of sticking my head in the sand because I feel overwhelmed.
I’m still a member of Kemetic Orthodoxy, though I haven’t been doing the rite of senut regularly. I’ve been honoring my Beloveds (Bast, Yinepu (Anubis)-Wepwawet, and Set), but I haven’t been working with Them. I would like to change that, but I need to increase the structure in my practice first. I don’t have a daily routine, and I miss having one. I have some ideas, I just need to focus on taking small steps.
I’m working with the runes a bit, though I have a long way to go. I feel a strong connection to Odin. I even ordered a custom-made Valknut necklace. I wouldn’t say that He is the most important God in my life, but I do feel like He has a claim on me. I think He will be with me for a long time. I have been honoring both Loki and Odin. I was going to bring Freya into the mix, but I haven’t as of yet.
There is a new Goddess in my life. I don’t want to talk about it too much because it may not go anywhere. It might just be a passing fancy and obsession of mine. If it turns into something, though, I’ll let you all know.
I’m still a member of Prairie Shadow Grove, an ADF grove. I am in the Order of the Red Grail’s student coven, the Red Oak Coven. I’m not Wiccan, but it helps me to be involved with the community. It is also helping me to better define my own thoughts and opinions about religion when I hear the thoughts of others. I’m a member of an oracular group, Spyre, that will eventually do public oracular sessions. I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to sit in the oracle seat, but just being part of the group is exciting. I’m slowly trying to learn how to trance.
This is a long enough ramble for now. I’m going to make more of an effort to keep this blog updated. I hope everyone is doing well.
