A Liminal Period: Physically and Spiritually

When I first created this blog, I had the intent of writing semi-informed information of Heathenry from a newbie’s perspective. I told myself that I would ideally post once every two weeks. As you can see this didn’t happen.

Almost immediately after creating this blog, plans of change began to form in my future. I won’t bore you with the minutiae of it all, but I’ll give you a quick summary. I was born in Wales, moved to the US when I was 12, and now at 20 years old I’m moving back to Wales. It is not a decision I make gladly, but I know in the long run it is the best thing for me and my fiance. So as of writing this, I depart in around four months.

I would call myself a fairly optimistic person, so even though there is plenty of negatives to the situation there are also plenty of positives. I choose to focus on the later. I will see family I haven’t seen in almost a decade, I will experience living in a major city. A capital no less! I shall also be in the land where my faith originated, where my Gods came from. I plan on writing a separate post on that subject though. Hopefully it won’t be months before I write that one.

So that accounts for my physical change, but my spiritual change has occurred far more recently. I’ve been comfortable calling myself a Heathen for somewhere around a year. Anglo-Saxon Heathen for a couple months. But even though Anglo-Saxon Heathenry originated from one part of the island I am from, it didn’t feel complete. I still wanted something that took hold within Wales at some point in time.

This led me to consider Roman polytheism. It’s something I’ve never been sure about. But after a day full of UPG, I’ve began to slowly add it to my practice. I’m very new to all of it, and I am hesitant to add too much at once without the proper resources. Resources that are pointless to acquire until after I move.

So this is where I am right now. In a period of simultaneous liminality and stagnation awaiting a time to where I can devote time and effort into worshiping the Gods in authentic and correct fashion. So here’s yet another post all about me that no one has asked for. I promise that at some point I will write upon topics that do not include me. But for now, look to others who are far more knowledgeable than I.
