For developing relationships, the deities are usually pretty good at guiding that along.  I suggest making a point to do a monthly ritual/offering to each and a nice gesture.  Also, the deities know that the other is also in your life.  Which two are they?  If they are conflicting in nature, that may be part of the problem.

So to sum up, try not to worry so much.  They chose you, so they will make themselves known in your life as they see fit.  If you are still concerned, try talking to them about it. 

Nimue, you make good points.  I don't think that these deities in question are at odds with each other. It's a feeling I get, but I can definitely do a little more prayer/soul searching to find out.  Two at least I feel are laid-back... the third, maybe not so much, but I can't imagine that they are in conflict.

And I'll do more talking with them about trying to hear individuals, not just a big, godly lump. Heh.


SUNFLOWER... I never thought of it in that way.  I guess that makes sense.  It's always nice to have it clear in one's mind, though... as in, I'm not just trying to convince myself that it's okay to do "X thing" when it might not be or whatnot. Sometimes it's nice to know that there's someone else out there being supportive or saying "No, don't do that!" other than myself.  So it makes sense. It's a healthy way to think, to live your life.

Unfortunately, I am a persistent worrier and someone who has to pickpickpick at every thread in every mental garment. Heheheheh.
