“Years ago, it used to bother me when some of the spirit worker folks would relate their own doxa about Her and I would realize that it didn’t match mine, at all. Now? I figure the gods can tell Their stories differently, and show Themselves differently, to different people, just as They please.”
Yup. If it makes you SO! VERY! ANGRY! that someone has an experience with a deity that differs from how you understand that deity, then it’s worth figuring out where that anger is coming from. Is it actually anger that you’re feeling? Or is it fear and insecurity? And how do you think you look if you let that fear and insecurity control your actions in a public forum?

Thanks for sharing this. I don’t know exactly how, yet, but this has helped me in some way. You’ve been very brave to share this. I’m not a heathen, but I know the community can be intense. I’m a daughter/priestess of The Morrigan, and while I’m not HER, I know there is a piece of her within me, which makes me hers. I don’t know if this is exactly what you’re experiencing, but your UPG sounds at least similar. Blessings to you!
Oops, sorry. I meant that comment for the original blog post. Thanks for sharing it here, though!
