I have Plans for tomorrow (er, today; whatever I haven’t slept yet so it’s still tomorrow).
In my constantly evolving personal practice, I worship a Sacred Triad of deities: Brighid, Manannan, and the Morrigan. Each has a holiday: Imbolc, Samhain, and Beltane, respectively. (Each also has a shift of some sort — flamekeeping for Brighid in the cill, and seaseeking for Manannan and landbinding for Morrigan — but that’s for another post because I’m still not sure what the frak I’m doing for 2 of those three shifts.)
So today is Her day. And I plan on making it very special — just for the two of us.
[Also, as I was writing that I just got a very definitive answer to my question as to whether or not my relationship with Her as Her godslave is at all sexual — yeah, yeah it is. Holy crap. More on that later.]
I’m cleaning the house — giving it a good scrubbing. This is part of sovereignty work, reclaiming my sense of self: my keeping things messy is a way to keep people out. If I’ve reclaimed myself, my sovereignty, then I don’t need to keep them away. Also, I need to start respecting myself. And that means keeping the mess to manageable and quirky, not insane and eating-my-entire-life-and-causing-injury.
I’m doing a ritual that has yet to be written, but it will involve dedicating my new whip to sacred use and
probably using it.
And I’m cooking a roast, which will be the feast for Morrigan and myself.
I’m not sure what exactly else will happen. I’m going to let things develop organically. If I feel comfortable enough sharing the details afterwards, I will.
At any rate, stay tuned for:
- my infinite PBP catch-up posts, jeezy creezy (that’s F, G, G, H, H, I, for those of you not keeping score at home)
- a post on flamkeeping/seaseeking/landbinding, whatever the hells those other two are
- starting a once-a-week posting of the 30 Days of Paganism blogging challenge. I realize it seems like I can’t even keep up with the one challenge I’m doing, and maybe that’s true…but if I have one of two things to do, it’s more likely SOMETHING will get posted each week. And I am trying to continue to deliver quality content to y’all.
- a post about Thangkas (you thought I’d forgot, didn’t you?)
