Things that don’t require posts of their own – Dreams, allotments and books!

It’s been back to the grind this week, so I haven’t had much time to write about anything of substance, but here are some disjointed thoughts and updates from the past few days.

1. This flat is awesome. I am sure people will get bored of me saying this, but I really do have more privacy and space available to me for spiritual things than ever before. When I wake up in the mornings I can greet the gods properly in a short ritual and spend time meditating and centering myself for the day before my shrines.  To me this is a big thing!

2. I have been keeping a dream journal recently. I started a few months ago but never kept it going. I miss a lot of useful and significant information by not paying attention to my dreams. Interestingly a lot of Celtic themes have been popping up recently that I wouldn’t have correlated if I hadn’t written everything down. I’m not sure what any of it represents or even if it’s significant, but it’s interesting all the same.

3. Divination is becoming a lot easier for me, and I am picking up on signs and omens much more quickly. I am more ‘wired in’ these days, and that is good.

4. I went back down to the allotment today. It’s coming along really nicely. In a couple of weeks time the allotment group will be having a private ritual there so we spent the day making the ground level and safe for a bonfire and a circle. I saw the largest bumble bee I have ever seen in my life groggily crawl out of the ground when I was working.

We have plans to erect a small shrine to the land spirits at some point too.

5. Being back at uni means I have access to the library! I had a little spare time last week and so I wandered around and made note of some of the books I would like to read for myself. The first book on my list is ‘The ritual process‘ by Victor Turner, as it looks quite interesting. Firstly I have to finish ‘A storm of swords’ by George RR Martin; it’s the third in the ‘a song of ice and fire’ series and I am completely addicted. Everybody should check them out for the intricate storyline and top notch writing! There are even some pagan themes!
