#witchychallenge2018 Day 8: God/esses. For most of my path I wouldn’t have had much to write as I worked with the idea of disembodied energy.
I was surprised that a couple yrs back I started feeling a real need to put a face and name to that concept.
For some this is maybe hard to understand as it was a change of perspective for me too.
My belief in universal energy hasn’t changed, but I came to think that humans find it easier to accept an embodied form and I believe (from @neilhimself) that this belief builds up around an archetype and sticks. To me this isn’t the same as a living breathing God walking round and caring about my life, rather a vessel for energy through belief, like a temple is a vessel of belief and it holds that energy.
Anyway, I researched for a while and was mostly put off until I read about Danu, and I laughed. Yep, I knew his was what I had been looking for: a creatrix beyond gender, with no real mythology to colour my thoughts but enough to feed my imagination. I didn’t push myself to believe but it all just felt right and I’ve had some beautiful experiences working with ‘her’. And again I’ve been surprised in the past few aka to have Cernunnos showing up and it led me to do some real healing work at my altar around my perceived problems with the fire element and with male archetypes. I’m really excited to see where this goes and again, I’m not pressuring myself but it’s all falling into place so quickly and easily. I’d love to bear from@anyone working with these too, especially Danu as she’s so elusive :) #goddessdanu #cernunnos #witchesofinstagram #witchychallenge #mygods
