What is your faith?

Who do you worship and through what framework? Are you a pagan or something else? Personally I am a Norse Heathen. At the moment I worship the Norse deities and I worship my ancestors and local wights through a Heathen format. I do have syncretist leanings and for some time have felt a calling towards a couple of Roman and Greek gods. However all my worship is done and will continue to be done through a Heathen format for the foreseeable future.

What about you? What does your faith look like? Or do you lack a faith? I am interested to know!

I hang somewhere between traditional Wicca and Folk practice, I feel closest to celto-germanic god*esses.

I wouldn’t call myself a pagan since I don’t have explicitly spiritual beliefs, but I like pagan communities, pagan literature, there’s something very appealing in the notion of build-it-yourself mysteries and symbolism as improvisational method of guiding ones own mind and emotions.

My ‘instincts’ run animate, the world feeling alive and filled with presence.

Being neurodivergent in pretty energetic ways, I feel a certain resonance with Odin as a patron of language and overwhelming emotion.

Cool! That sort of diy attitude is a big thing for me, I think that’s part of what I like about the eclecticism a lot of pagans explore. My practice is fairly reconstructive but also fairly eclectic, I try to find a good balance.

Animism is integral to heathenry so I definitely get that, for most heathens worshipping the spirits of the land and matter around us is a cornerstone to our practice. Maybe if it calls to you you might consider doing some kind of offering or other form of reverence for the spirits of the land.

And again, I’m with you there. As a fellow neurodivergent person who just started worshipping Odin I feel like he helps me understand the fury and ecstasy that can come with extreme mood states.

Solid! I find the labels I’ve adopted help me focus in on the aspects of faith I want to embrace, but for some labels can be a hindrance. I like your way of looking at it as a constant journey. I think, no matter what labels you hold or conclusions you’ve acheived, tomorrow always holds something new, and faith can always evolve.

If I may, do you worship deities?

A place for pagans of all shapes and sizes to discuss their faith and practice.

No bigotry of any sort will be allowed. That means NO FOLKISM.

Please keep the discussion respectful and pagan centric. You don’t have to be a pagan to participate, but you must respect its adherents and tenets and keep the discussions relevant to paganism. Paganism is an umbrella term for a very diverse range of religious and spiritual beliefs, so please be inclusive and accepting of people’s differing beliefs and opinions.
