I need some advice. I'm starting to gain feelings for a spirit, but I've already done things with a God. Now I feel like I'm making it up and being fickle. I'm not in a relationship or anything with anyone from Over There, but I still feel like I'm being pulled in different directions. Also, many people look down on those with relationships with their gods since Godspousing is some sort of trend now, and so I feel like I'm just playing pretend or something. What do you think I should do?

First things first, figure out if any of this is real.  If you feel like you might be playing pretend it’s up to you to decide if you are or not.  I can’t help you with that, it takes lots of reflection and self inspection. 

Once you’ve decided on the “real-ness” of your experiences its then up to you decide on your next step.  Do you want to move forward with this spirit? What exactly are your feeling for it? stuff like that.

But, above all, don’t let other people dictate your actions or thoughts.  Not people on tumblr, not people in your life.  Yes, the pagan tag hates on godspouses a lot, I’ve seen it though I’ve been lucky enough not to receive too much of that hate.  But you can’t let those people get in your head.  Pursuing a relationship with a spirit is a difficult undertaking, and you can’t let anyone else decide for you.

Is hedge crossing like meditation? Or journey work? I've also heard of pathwalking and I am confuse. I know going to the Otherworld is going to be intense either way, but what method would you suggest for someone who's never traveled?

Anonymous

Hedge crossing and journey work are similar, though since I’ve never really used the term “journey work” myself I’m hesitant to say they are the same.  The both involve going to what I call the Otherwords, what others have called the astral, the spirit worlds, Faerie; there are all sorts of different names for world which aren’t ours.  

Personally I’ve never heard of pathwalking, so I can’t say what it is.  

As for my methods I suggest you take a look at these posts:

And my Otherworld Tag in general might be helpful, it’s also full of pretty pictures that remind me of the Otherworlds.

Deredere.


Yes, with the right people.  If you’re on my short list of people I trust not to accidentally hurt me I can even be physically affectionate.

Dandere.


This is very, very true.  Though I can be very chatty online, I’m hard to draw out of my shell in person.

Which -dere do you think I am?

wessasaurus-rex:

psycho-chi:

Tsundere - Hostile outside, loving on the inside

Yandere - Sweet outside, obsessive and psychotic inside

Kuudere - Silent/cool, turns loving afterwards

Dandere - Usually quiet until the right person comes along


Kamidere - Just like tsundere but has a god-like complex

Dorodere - Sweet outside, messed up and disturbed inside

Deredere - Loving and affectionate

Himedere- Just like tsundere, but princess-like

TELL ME TELL ME TELL ME

Stupid Commuter Poem*

The city does not sleep
But it dozes
Fitfull and light On a Saturday morning
When the October light diffuses through the glass walls of a high rise.

No trees in this forest
but a million million leaves,
asleep in their beds
Or clutching blue and white paper coffee cups.

The golden light shifts,
A train rattles by,
and the city stirs,
moving from a dream of me to a dream of you.

A dream of life, of love, of adventure,
and of what’s for breakfast this morning.
Probably bagels.

*this is what happens when I work early on Saturday mornings.

Stop posting comics like “what if we treated mental illnesses like physical ones?” in order to highlight the struggles faced by mentally ill folk.

People do invalidate those of us with chronic, physical illnesses, on a daily basis.

Don’t erase our struggles in order to prove your point.

Especially if it’s an “invisible illness”

To all the pagans/polytheists that work with little known deities and have had to build their practice and UPG from the ground up, especially those without direct connections to deity (godphone etc): you are amazing and you have my love and respect.
