4/29 A new beginning?

Ive been slacking.  I havent had the time nor inclination to write anything more fluff except  for once or twice  in the last few weeks.  Sometimes in the past I  would just  write silly things just to have something to say.  Which in thinking about it I believe is contrary to the original intention. So ive been thinking about revamping it  and not forcing myself to write every day especially if I dont  have anything to say.  Im not trying to get out of writing  it completely, but I think Id me more apt to write things of substance a few times a week then force myself to write fluff more times then not if I try to do this every night . And who knows I might go back to every night.

Moving on, I have thought and meditated more on Hel.  Ive read folks blogs, poetry, stories, and songs to try to learn more about her and I feel like ive only scraped the surface about her.  Overall Ive felt rather directionless spirituality wise, not sure exactly what to do about it, but  eventually ill figure out a direction to go

Hel Veil2Hel Veil

The scarf that im going to use as a veil for Hel came today!

Its on my altar now, but ill have to take some time later to sit with it and meditate.  Ill have to come back and write about that later since lack o sleep is catching up with me.  NIght all

Last night and today I said several prayers to Hel to allow Sir’s Dr’s to have clarity, and for Sir to have the best outcome, and a few other things.  A friend of ours had given Sir Prayer beads for Hel, with representations in the beads of a ritual we did in dec.  He asked me to wear it during surgery, and all day long as i was praying to Hel I would hold and rub those beads, it helped to have something physical to hold and feel so I could be more focused.And when we were going back to see him, I said a quick prayer in thanks for Hel, and to the universe.

Sir also had a good idea, when I was leaving him last night to go crash for a few hours, he whispered in my ear that before I fall asleep that I should ground center and shield twice and as  Im meditation go thru my vision of what day should be like, and if im feeling stress or anxiety  to redo that meditation to calm myself down

Havent had alot of time to write or research with the driving ive been doing, but I have been thinking alot about  how I can support Sir with his Work with Hel.  Ive finally got a chance  to order a scarf that im going to use as a veil for her part of my altar, but im slightly at a loss as where to go next to do research to learn more about her.  I was planning to do meditation tonight to release some stress, tension, and some emotional buildup, and ill add in some time for meditating for Hel, even if I cant figure out right away what direction to go  at least im spending time trying.

I will say a prayer tonight to Hel, before i go to sleep, just a little thank you.

Quicck observation: on the way home from baltimore there was a very clear half moon guiding me home, and i said a little prayer in hopes the moon would guide Sir back to our house soon

I may not be the best writer but its from the heart.

A prayer to Hel
Lady of flesh and bone, wise, strong, I make a request, help clarity to flow to help the one i call Sir, and the doctors taking care of him, take the best course of action, to allow him to continue his work for you.
I will continue to support him in his work, and am continuing to keep my promise to you.

I kinda feel bad that I havent posted in a few days  but really ive been super busy driving back and forth to baltimore and really didnt have anythin to write about spirituality wise. But today, i brought some things in to set up the mini altar at work , theres a shelf  essentially above my head and it now it has a small starfish charm and blue pebble that reminds me of the ocean for La Siren, some rose petals for freya , a jeweled heart patch for erzulie freda.  Nothing for Hel yet I just found something appropriate yet and id rather wait till i do.  On a break i took a few minutes to set it up, and say a prayer to those the items represent, to help me get thru the crappy job i have, and thanked them for the guidance they have given me, did some centering breaths and felt a bit calmer.

Daily or not fire 4/13

So yeah i skipped 2 days but ive been driving back and forth to bmore and lack of sleep has left me little quality/well focused time to reflect.  I did barely start the voodoo/hoodoo book, and so far what ive read is interesting. The author is not a practioner of either but it isn’t  a “scholarly” or theses work. The author as a child grew up in area where these practices were common and for the most part respected. Ill be writing more when i get a chance to read more

Daily fire 4/10

Dont really have much to say tonight other than im about to start a book on voodoo and hoodoo that i found unpacking a box, ill have to write about if its good or bad and if i learn anything new

earlier today the freya statue  caught my eye, and after having a very stressful call with the cell phone company i decided to meditate and shut off for a few minutes and I started to listen to trance music and started to think of her and her beauty and sexuality, had some really hot and interesting visons/daydreams/etc and wanted to say thanks to Freya for them.
