The Two Powers exercise went well. I allowed energy to spread through my body, so I spent longer period of time with this exercise. I watched the sun rise as I felt the energy. When I was done, took hands off the mug and out of the bowl and shook them to cut off flow of energy. I’m glad I am getting better at this! I may need to spend time with each Power getting to know the individual energy.
For my omen-taking, I asked if I should honor Freya as a Patron.
Jera–year (the year ahead); harvest, hard work, generosity from the Kindreds
Kenaz–torch, ulcer; cheer, pain, death
Ansuz–a beginning point of a journey, god, communication
Looking at these runes I’ve drawn, it’s pretty clear to me that I should honor Freya as a Patron for now (a year, perhaps, because of Jera). Jera is a rune of harvest; Freya is Goddess of the harvest. Kenaz can be torch or ulcer, bringing cheer or pain (or death); Freya is Goddess of love, but also of war and death. Finally Ansuz is a rune of wisdom and of communication from the Divine. It’s also a rune of new beginnings. So, honoring Freya as my Patron for now is wise (and I will probably receive wisdom from Her). Honoring Freya as my Patron is also a new beginning for me, and a new beginning for Her to be my Patron.
I will offer to Her when I make coffee. She deserves something. It means a lot to me to have found a Patron, if only for a little while.
Some great things are happening on the spiritual level!
