It's like placing a phone call and leaving a message. Obviously if someone doesn't answer the phone, I either assume they're not there (which is impossible for a deity) or that they're not interested. But I leave a message anyways. Now if my phone call isn't returned, I move on.

Or, the machine screwed up, or they couldn't hear your number, or they had five million other things to do and only answer repeated calls.

I've done all of the above with phone & e-mail messages.  Roll Eyes

I don't know how you're trying to phone Odin, so to speak, but if you''re bound and determined for a personal relationship: have you tried a different method and seeing where that goes? I'm thinking a full evocation instead of prayers, or a guided meditation instead of dream work. Something more direct than offerings.


As an aside, I'd draw a distinction between being an agnostic Pagan and a not-working-with-gods Pagan - the former doesn't necessarily know what-all's going on with the universe (who created it, why gods exist, which gods exist, archetypes vs hard polytheism/separate gods, etc), while the latter has an idea and just doesn't work with deities.
