So, I have this tradition of offering food to Hekate during Dark Moon -i used to do Hekate's Suppers the classic way, but it's been impratical with me having no car and living in a small town.

When i noticed i had accidentally missed last one, i felt mortified like i had forgotten someone's birthday and i asked the goddess, via Oracle cards as we often 'converse' through that, if she would like something in particular so i could make up to Her. I received an answer along the lines of 'tend to your garden and take care of its fruits'.

I assumed it meant i had focus on a personal project She encouraged me in past, and i've been slacking about in those last few days.

But...this night, i had the strangest, vivid dream ever with cookies of every shape and kind possible sprouting all around me, and me eating them. It amused me, but i didn't give any particular significance to it. Browsing over internet during the course of the day, i found what it seemed a pretty easy cookie recipe and i remembered it was long time since i did any handmade cookies. Thinking back to the dream, i considered it could be fun to play with the original recipe adding some lavander and cinnamon to imitate my favorite recipe.

To make a short story shorter, i baked and it didn't make any kind of blessing on the cookie dough but... when i finally tasted the result of my labour, although cookies were far too sweet for my personal taste... i started feeling all glowy and happy, the way i occasionally feel after working a spell. For a moment i truly thought i was experiencing sugar high, because it was really an unusual thing but... retesting the cookies a couple of hours later, i had the same feeling crawling over me. Weird, honestly, because i did not like the new recipe that much.

I'm having a bit of difficulty to process the fact that Hekate possibly had a craving for cookies but i'm going to offer some anyway - it can't hurt, even if this ends being some strange byproduct of my imagination.

Yet, the episode got me thinking - have you ever experienced something similiar?  I'm referring to peculiar requests or responses coming from above, and how did you recognize this was the real deal?
