So I’m extremely new to paganism, haven’t really definitely decided what’s happening with that, but I’m curious as to how people figure out which deities they’re going to honor/worship/believe in?
I ask this because I had an experience… I think?
I was looking into figures for my fledgeling sacred space/altar/shrine/meditation focal point I’m working on in my house, and I chose a lovely little figure of Ceridwen (the aspect of paganism that draws me most is druidry, but that wasn’t a factor; I didn’t realize she was important in druidry… as I said, VERY new at this) mainly because she is related to knowledge and wisdom, and I like that.
Anyway, I was doing some visualization work where I was trying to visualize an ancient druid just in general (idea from a book I’m reading), and what unexpectedly and rather decidedly appeared was a crone figure with a cauldron (I’d been preparing to do this particular visualization for a couple of days, and I really thought I was going to see more of a maiden figure).
I connected the two later when I realized that Ceridwen is a crone figure with a cauldron, and got this “whoaaaa” kind of a feeling that I don’t really know what to do with.
So thoughts, ideas, etc., would be much appreciated. I don’t want to make too much out of a coincidence.
