I’m a polytheist who has relationships with and connections to multiple gods and goddesses. I’ve written about a few of them already, but I’d like to expand on that as well as have a place where those earlier blog articles could be easily found and referenced.
My levels of interaction can be sorted into two categories, really: intimate and through connection to another.
Those gods I work with intimately are ones I have taken oaths to, been involved with for a number of years, and regularly spend time with.
Those who I have through connection to another may be because they are gods that my boyfriend has a relationship with, or the god has a relationship with or connection to one of my intimate gods. For these gods, I utilize my intimate relationship as a means to connect with them.
I firmly believe that the gods are not simply names or associations of energy and I do not agree with teachings that say you can pull a god from any book or culture to call upon simply because you have a need and it’s handled by so-and-so. If you think that the same power is present in calling a god to help you as you could get with lighting a candle or mixing some herbs, essentially just using them as another correspondence item, then you should just stick to candles and herbs and leave the gods alone.
So here are the gods that I have a primary working relationship with and interact with regularly on some level.
Unlinked names will be the subject of future blog postings.
