Heya!

Post by rjlatrans on Thu Apr 30, 2015 1:07 pm

Hey everyone! Y'all can call me RJ. I'm a known rambler so this will probably ramble a bit because I suck at these things.

I'm about 26 and have been working with Loki for nearly a year now (though I could definitely say that I've been inspired by and taking his lessons for nearly 2-3 years, but at that point was coming off 20+ years of really damaging spiritual experiences via Southern Conservative Christian Churches so was pretty much holding myself back from everything for a time to sort myself and try and detox. ~lifetimestory~). Thankfully I'm part Swedish and had the benefit of a Grandmother who made sure I was surrounded by Swedish legends and mythology and fairytales from the time I could be read to, so I kinda suspect my early fascination with the look of Loki in those books might have been inspired by something, but who knows. Laughing So I was able to feel comfortable with him pretty early on despite my baggage.

I consider myself a Eclectic/Universalist ('pagan' is too general, and I feel Universalist better reflects my overarching ideas about the universe itself), as I revere some divine figures outside of the Norse pantheon, though I do try and do my research and make sure to respect things properly as possible. I've just started working with Freyr which is a bit weird for me, since it was the first time I reached out to a deity vs them poking me first. But, whattya gonna do.

So, uh... I think that's it for a intro! Nice to meet everyone and I look forward to talking about Heathenry with y'all!

And thank you, Darkamber! Very Happy

Thanks for the welcomes, everyone! <
3 And lol seems like there are a lot of us southerners on here! (Good- we have the best drawl and food. :;
): )

@NJM - It's kinda exciting, isn't it? I finally got the altar set up (I currently don't live in my own house- so hard to find space/do it on the down low) and I feel like it's a fitting first step. Said altar is a mish-mash of stuff that will hopefully make sense once I buy more, but eh.
