Merry Meet Witchlings,
There has been so much going on my life, magickal wise, lately!!! I must say I am excited about it all! First off I am in the process of creating my own path. This is proving to be fun and challenging. Yet, it helps me to find where I want to be in this beautiful religion of ours! With that being said, here’s what I been up to! I am working on creating my own Wiccan Path that is heavy in Green and Kitchen witch practices. I call it “The Path of the Green Kitchen Witch” I wouldn't go into much detail because this is my personal path and I do not intend on making it a tradition with initiation and so forth, but I would say it is absolutely joyous to be creating my own path! I will post another post on the resources I used to create my own path on a later date (maybe even tomorrow).
I have also chosen my God and Goddess! This is super exciting for me as I have always loved the Idea of having a Goddess but was never pressed on having a God. No God to up to the point of last night spoke to me and made me feel that warm and fuzzy feeling inside. However, it happened last night! My Goddess is Freya (A.K.A. Freyja) and my God is Freya’s twin brother, Freyr! They speak to my heart and give me such and uplifting feeling when I am reading about them!
Freya is the Norse Goddess of Love, Beauty, Magick, Sex, Fertility, Wisdom, and War.
I think what draws me to her is that she has a soft and loving side, yet she can also be a destroyer if need be. I can relate to this somewhat because I am very kind and loving but can get really “nasty” when it comes to defending myself and my family.
Freyr is the Norse God of Fertility, Harvest, Sun, Rain, Peace, and Success/Prosperity.
I am drawn to him because the uplifting feeling I get when learning about him (as mentioned above). His gifts are also necessary for life on this earth!
As I was reading about choosing the right god and goddess for my green witch path, I came across the name of Freya and Freyr and my reaction was “YESSSSS!” when I read what they were about. I jumped out of bed and headed to my laptop. Can someone say, RESEARCH TIME!! After that I was up for about 2 hours researching Them, learning about Them, and deciding if they were right for me, guess what? They are (I am going to do much more extensive research). I am thrilled to have found a Goddess but even more thrilled to find a God!
Finding my Lord and Lady also got me into reading about Norse traditions and customs which lead me to learning about Asatru. Asatru is the religion of worshiping the Old Norse gods. This lead me to learning about The Nine Nobel Virtues that are the moral code of Asatruar (people who practice Asatru), they are courage, truth, honor, loyalty, hospitality, industriousness, perseverance, self-discipline, and self-reliance. I thought what better way to honor my Norse God and Goddess than to adopt these moral codes into my practice and try my best to live by them.
Lastly, because this has become a lengthy post, I have had a magickal name change, so no more Yemaya Dreamcaster. My new Wiccan name is WaterLily Pixie (Yes, I purposely capitalized the “L””. This name suits my Green Kitchen Witch practice and I recently found out that it adds up to the same number of my birth name, 5. That’s probably why I loved it so much when I created it!
Blessed Be Witchlings,
