Reminder for Submissions for the Spring Ed. of the Journal of Apollon

Boosting signal.

Beloved in Light

Reminding folks that the deadline is approaching for the spring edition of the Journal put out by the Order of Apollon. I will need submissions by March 7th at the latest for a spring equinox release date. I highly encourage all those who are devoted to Apollon, or who otherwise give adoration to Apollon to submit their entry for the journal.

Participants are encouraged to submit a variety of things. Really only your imagination is your limit. Prayers, poetry, essays, art, reviews, new original translations, rituals, divination methodology, healing methodology etc. The preference is for material to keep mind to  the season of growth and fruition, but for some topics season is unlikely to be pertinent at all which we completely acknowledge.

My Life’s Top Priority

This!! So much this!
ALL the members of my Divine Family give me crap about not taking care of myself first. Not sure which One is saying this but I quote, “You can’t get beautiful music from a shitty vessel.”

The Road, the Walker, and What Comes Next

Almost fifteen years ago I gave oaths of loyalty, service, and affection to My Lord. This undertaking had more steps than I anticipated. When I first decided, “Yes, this is something I’m going to do”, He stopped me. My heart wasn’t in the right place. My motivation wasn’t right.

But isn’t this right? I asked. This is what you wanted from me. I’m just doing what you asked me to.

That was the problem and that was my very first lesson.

Love Song from Hermes

Tiptoe by Imagine Dragons

In the morning light let my roots take flight
Watch me fall above like a vicious dove
They don’t see me come, who can blame them?
They never seem to catch my eye but I never wondered why

I won’t fall asleep
I won’t fall asleep

Hey yeah, don’t let ’em know we’re coming
Hey yeah, tiptoe higher
Take some time to simmer down, keep your head down low
Hey yeah, tiptoe higher

From your slanted view see the morning dew
Sink into the soil, watch the water boil
They won’t see me run, who can blame them?
They never look to see me fly, so I never have to lie

I won’t fall asleep
I won’t fall asleep

Hey yeah, don’t let ’em know we’re coming
Hey yeah, tiptoe higher
Take some time to simmer down, keep your head down low
Hey yeah, tiptoe higher

Nobody else, nobody else
Nobody else can take me higher
Nobody else can take me higher
Nobody else can take me higher
Nobody else

Hey yeah, don’t let ’em know we’re coming
Hey yeah, tiptoe higher
Take some time to simmer down, keep your head down low
Hey yeah, tiptoe higher

Hey yeah, don’t let ’em know we’re coming
Hey yeah, tiptoe higher
Take some time to simmer down, keep your head down low
Hey yeah, tiptoe higher

Dedication Isn’t Supposed to be Easy-The Downsides to Veiling

YES!!

Horrific Knits

There are a lot of really amazing, wonderful things to come out of veiling. I have talked to multiple women about the ways that it is grounding, emotionally healing, and calming (more on that later).

And it’s hot, uncomfortable, and makes you a visible target.

Let’s be honest with ourselves-part of the reason that those who are drawn to veiling do it is because of the sacrificial nature of the act. You are taking on a requirement that sets you apart from your peers-even peers in your own belief set. This is an act that requires long term commitment and a need for follow through.

I’m by no means suggesting not to veil. Most everything has a downside as well as benefits. Veiling also isn’t for everyone and there is certainly no shame in the attempt and decision that you are best serving deity in other ways.

These are the…

Pretties

To be carried with me wherever I go, at Poseidon’s request. It was one year ago that we went to Cuba and I collected these. I had some pretty intense experiences there that are starting to take on more significance now that Poseidon is a fixture. There will be blog posts eventually.

Guiding Gods

I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed lately. As a young teen, when I left Christianity I left my interactions with Male Powers behind. I am not proud of it but I treated Them about as well as I treated mortal males during those years. I was struggling with the masculine parts of myself mightily at the time. Still do but that’s another blog post in and of itself. My fear of my own non-binary nature along with a giant bag of baggage from Christianity kept me from connecting with Them. It could have just been part of my journey I suppose, immerse myself in the gender I was assigned at birth(female), now it’s time to explore the others options.

It took a couple years for Himself to reassure me enough to let Him in. Since I’ve let Him it’s been a bit of a snowball effect. I’ve now had direct contact with five Gods in the last few months, including Himself. Odin is my Father in Heaven, Hermes is my Beloved Husband, Ares is a dear Friend, Loki is…well Loki. Then there is Poseidon. I’m pretty sure I’ve already written a bit about His amorous intentions. My Fibromyalgia is acting up really bad today so I has the dumb and not the brain power to look it up right now. When I asked the Menfolk why they were here, this song was my answer.

Which when you read the lyrics and such is really very funny and fitting with my feeling of entering a “Brave New World” (maybe I should read the book again?).

Hermes spoke with me yesterday about Poseidon, reassuring me that He is not upset about my feelings for Poseidon or for any interactions with Him. Himself reminded me that monogamy is really a “modern” human construct. He told me that He “sent” Poseidon to me because I need Someone else with me when He is away. It wasn’t like an arranged relationship or anything. It’s kinda like He gave His blessings I suppose? Kinda like when He asked Hekate to come help me with my visions and such.

Poseidon and I have been “talking” most of the morning. He talks in songs. Which is awesome. Hermes does too but Poseidon seems to speak more in waves of emotion and music, the rumbles of tremors and earthquakes and horse hooves. He played this song for me today in regards to our relationship, He had eluded to an idea like this when He told me to look up information on Amphitrite.

Now what He wanted me to pay particular attention to was this part…

“When you feel my heat
Look into my eyes
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide
Don’t get too close
It’s dark inside
It’s where my demons hide
It’s where my demons hide

They say it’s what you make
I say it’s up to fate
It’s woven in my soul
I need to let you go

Your eyes, they shine so bright
I wanna save that light
I can’t escape this now
Unless you show me how”

Unless you show Me how. The idea of being a Mortal that needs to Guide a God is scaring the shit out of me right now. I can’t stay way though. It’s time to jump in the deep end.
