This is a work of fiction. All the characters in it, human and otherwise, are imaginary, excepting only certain of the fairy folk, whom it might be unwise to offend by casting doubts on their existence. Or lack thereof.
I am currently reading The Heart of the Initiate – Feri Lessons by Victor and Cora Anderson and there is so much resonance with my own experience already, halfway through this 78 page book. I like that it is short and I love that the writing is succinct. The lack of ‘waffle’ is distinctly refreshing and un-American. This is the real McCoy.
What made me really pause and think is the claim that the Gods are real. Yes, they are archetypes too (so are you and I!) but they are also real Spirits and it would be unwise to have dealings with Gods that are not yours according to the Andersons. My mind has wavered on the ‘realness’ of Gods and still does to a certain extent.
Yet I cannot deny the visitations and divine messages I have received. Hence the Gods that are definitely ‘mine’ would be Nephthys, Hel, Jesus and Melek Taus (not mentioned in order of appearance).
Have you been claimed by a Path/Deity? Were you visited and shown things about the nature of existence or about yourself? My most recent communication was with Melek Taus and he said ‘Nothing is as it seems’ after showing me my animal self… It was how the Faery Path claimed me. I didn’t go searching – it came for me!
It is so easy to dismiss visions and visitations as fantasy. We are encouraged to do so and even drugged (fluoride) in order to become less receptive. I think it is time for you and I to reclaim our power and our divine right to be in direct communication with our own Gods and Goddesses!
