Checking in Again and Sharing More Videos

I realize that my youtube channel has taken over just a bit. I haven’t forgotten about blogging. I have posts planned, and plenty of Dedicant material I still need to get up. But I have so much going on right now that it’s hard to keep up. I have several personal projects going on and my temporary job taking up my time.

I really want to do my Dedicant Oath during this year’s Lughnasadh ritual, so I need to get to writing and catching up! Good news is that I am keeping up with meditation, so that’s something.

I held my Charming of the Plough rite yesterday. I am so excited to start planting my garden. I hope hope hope, really hope, that I can successfully grow something, haha.

Well, anyway, here are my most recent videos: One is about Aspergers and assorted aspects of my identity, the other is for week 9 of the YouTube pagan challenge.

ADF Dedicant Path: Fifth High Day Recap (Imbolc)

IMG_7414.jpg

My grove celebrated Imbolc on January 30th. We honored Bride as patron. Manannán mac Lir was the gatekeeper. I am feeling increasingly more comfortable around the people in my grove and, for this reason, feel more spiritually connected than I did during the first few High Days I attended with them. I brought my own praise offerings and spoke my praise out loud as I did last time. Even though I waffle over whether or not I believe the Powers can hear our thoughts, speaking out loud results in a more powerful experience for me. A particular highlight of this ritual were the tea candles we were allowed to take home with us. One of the grove members brought a candle that had been blessed at a shrine to Bride/St. Brigid in Kildare, Ireland and used it to light the tea candles. I could definitely feel Bride’s presence during the rite. The omens drawn to know whether or not the Gods, and Bride specifically, accepted our offerings were positive. The omen drawn asking for Bride’s word of wisdom to us was the rune, Elhaz, which I took to be more of a blessing than imparted wisdom, though it could be either.
