A few questions, just wondering and all that. Smiley

1. For you, does general location affect the strength of your relationship with a particular God(ess), or how you work with a God(ess)? For example, would it be easier to connect with Manannan on the Isle of Man, or in Ireland, than places where the God isn't 'native'?

2. Also, does specific location matter? Say, would you only work with a deity in a place or situation relevant to their field? Is this preferable?

I tend to relate most to the "Great MOther" who goes by many names, so she is both Isis and Arianrhod, and transcends nationality and ethncity or culture.  My sense of her is that she takes on the form, name, language and clothing that any particular devotee needs or wishes to see her in.  So she will come as well in Ireland as in California.  However, she is connected to certain archetypes, so some landscapes and environments are better for being with her, than others are.  Hard, rocky, craggy and dry, windswept and hot places are not very good for meeting with her.  Better to find her in shady, green, moist and watery places, like forests and tender meadows, and not at midday, but early or late, or at night are much better. 

I have not had the opportunity to travel to Europe as an adult.  If I did, who knows,  I might find relationships with European cultural deities enhanced and have more of a relationship to specific deities.   

If you live according to an example, you live the life of that example.  There is only one way and that is your way.  You seek the path? I warn you away from my own.  May each go his own way....  ---Carl Jung
