Freya and the Dwarfs - No Guilt, No Shame

  While reading through the myths about Freya, I kept coming upon the story of her ‘necklace’ and how she came about it. I put necklace in quotes because no one is sure if it was a necklace. The basic story goes along the lines of the married Freya was wandering about and came across 4 dwarfs creating the most beautiful piece Freya had ever seen. (This is where the necklace is assumed…because a goddess must have a pretty necklace. Why couldn’t it be a breast plate or a belt?)She offered to buy it from the dwarfs. She was willing...

Surprise! Freya’s here!

Surprise! Freya’s here!

  Freya’s been calling me for a while. She tugs at my heartstrings and pulls me toward her.  Yet in spite of years of her tugging and teasing, it wasn’t something I could force. She and she alone would decide when we should work together. Last year I made a list of Goddesses I wanted to work with and then plugged them onto a calender. I suspected that I was being a bit ambitious; I often felt like a new goddess every month was a little overwhelming. Sometimes, I feel like 8 would be more workable, but I had 12,...

Persephone's Message - Emerging from the Darkness

  What can I tell you about Persephone?  It’s been a busy month, She’s spoken a couple times but that wasn’t the focus of this month. This month, my focus has been the website and marketing plans. I suppose it’s been appropriate topic for Persephone to oversee. We all know the story of Persephone. We know she was abducted by Hades and taken to the underworld. We know how her mother, Demeter, raged and mourned and withheld the sun’s light so the world went cold and barren. We know how Zeus bartered for her return but Persephone herself, chose to...
