Hello all, so my spirituality is ummmmmm, strange. So I've been on a quest to find my god/goddess. Don't confuse that with looking for a religion. So, can anyone help me? I've tried meditation and come up with a strange combo of nonsense letters. I do feel I'm being called, but by whom?
This said, I suggest meditation and finding your still point, keeping an open mind, reading about different types of spirituality, gods/goddesses, and going to spiritually strong places if you can. I mean hereby the Camino pilgrimage, or even religious houses (churches, etc.). Sometimes, even going to a mountaintop, the sea/oceanside, or a forest will help. Going alone will be infinitely more powerful as well.
I realized that I had a strong spiritual experience years after it happened, lol. It's been a journey and little by little the pieces are falling together. All the best in finding your deity.
For years, I've said that "Asphaltis" (that's a variation on "asphalt") watches over me, and helps with good parking places, safe trips, anything to do with driving. It's sort of a joke (I'm agnostic), but so what.
I believe that all named dieties were created by humans, some made very long ago, others more recently. So go ahead and make up your own.
Ann-Marita. I deleted my usual signature due to, oh, wait, if I say why, that might give too much away.
I wonder if we go to the same UU church... we have a coming of age program for 9th graders where the kids have a series of classes and retreats and a vision quest in order to develop their own credo.
I noted your location and I would say that that is a very accurate description of the location of my UU church
thanks for the tips. I may be to lazy to make my own though I'd like to get an alter set up, maybe it will have to be seasonal. I have to say that the day I posted my question was bizzarely bad. Cat pooped on the bed, toddler walked through it, cat #2 peed on the clean clothes, had to wash 3 loads of poo/pee laundry, and I set my planter on fire. All while hubby was in Miami.
