An Update…

In the light of
What happened to me
During this #samhain,
What was reawakened
From a long slumber,
And in order to #honor
#ancient promises & allegiances,
I have decided to add
Another chapter to the #runezine
And share another thread
Of my personal tapestry.
However, as a citizen of
The #nineworlds,
I remain aware that
What matters to me
May or may not
Matter to you…

Relationships with Entities & Spirits

We all have a different view on spirituality and our relationship to the divine. Some people are into worship, some have a more experiential approach while others may be very superstitious.

I have always considered Spirits as allies. They may train you, guide you, teach you, test you, challenge you, protect you…etc, but it’s never a one-way relationship. It’s very possible that some of them might have an agenda. But in a relationship, there is no hierarchy, no sense of ‘I’m in charge and you just follow’, it’s more like a trade-off: I do something for you & your spiritual growth/path and you do something for me/us. Most of the time (at least in my case) the other part of the ‘deal’ is not verbalized, but I am aware of doing some of the work while sleeping (even if I can’t remember it), just like I am when I do readings or heal people. I dwell on the threshold…
