The Ninth….

Posted in Uncategorized on January 10, 2019 by HowlingFire

Each January 9th I devote to Odin the 9th day of the year…..

This year it fell on Wednesday, so I had the Rite planned for a couple weeks.  I didn’t know exactly how it was going to go, but I knew it would be a powerful day for me, and I was not disappointed.

It was also a Snow Day here at the Temple.  There was about 4 inches of snow when I awoke.  A perfect day for a day in the Temple in meditation, work and Ritual.

First I honored Frigga. As a HomeMaker, keeping the Temple organized and clean allows me to do more of the spiritual and emotional work needed for such Rites. The morning was spent clearing and organizing the food stores. Then moved onto the craft items and lining up the next few craft projects. Then onto the bedroom, furniture rearranged, clothes hung and cared for and new lights hung on the wall.

I hosted a Sumbel here at the temple on Monday evening, so there was also clean up after that event.  Clearing Cleaning and Crafting…

The Old Man appreciates my sensual nature, and I His, we are not shocked at this…; )

Dancing, singing and yoga were all on the menu, as well as a long, hot, luxurious bath.

The thing I find about Holy days is to leave energetic space for anything that can happen, and to not fine tune too much what you want to do on these days.   Whatever your Holy Day is, remaining open for Communication from the Gods and the Ancestors are crucial.

I was blessed with a surprise phone call from a dear friend and lover.  It had been a long while since we had talked, I felt his call a physical manifestation of Odin making himself known to me.

After an intense and sensual evening, I crawled into my freshly made bed a happy and fulfilled Odin’s Woman…..

A Dark and Stormy Yule

The rain pounds upon the pane

My Heart pounds, my flesh warm

Eyes flood with tears

Heart flutters

Blood boils

A long dark night begins

Despair

Ecstasy

Short Days

Long Dark Nights…..

Mani keeping a close eye on me

Twinkling stars say hello

Wrapped in nostalgia

Sadness for Family lost

Joy for friends found

Spiral in…..

Keep going….

 

ah…they call this “help”

“When was the rape?”

“When was the rape?!?!?!?”  a voiced shouted in my head, “which one?!?!?!” She was pissed….”like fuck you lady you have no idea, I don’t need this bullshit, we’re fuckingout of here!!!”…..

But what came out of my mouth….”well I used to say I was raped and beaten for a living….(I laugh and shift positions)  “Well”, I went on< “my first boyfriend was very abusive, it was that way for a while…it kinda all just blurs together”.

 

My day asking for help.

Tick the boxes, tell of all the deep, darkest horrifying moments on a scale from 1 to 5
