A few days ago I had a dream that some nameless, faceless power was telling me that I had to figure out what god/goddess I align with and I have to figure it out now!  It was a very powerful and vivid experience and I was wondering if anyone else has had anything similar happen to them and if so, how they went about figuring out how to start.

Currently, I feel that something is out there but I have no face or name to put to the feeling of power.  (I'm sure that's a common thing to hear...  Undecided)  I've read up on some gods and goddesses (before this happened) and I've never felt that click with any of them.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Are there any particular myths that resonate with you? When you look through a book on world mythology are there certain cultures that jump out at you or ones that you linger over, myths that you enjoy reading over and over? Did you grow up, as I did, reading "National Geographic" and become fascinated with the archaeology of certain ancient cultures? When you're riding around your town do you suddenly see brand names leaping out at you, like Mercury or hear songs like "I'm Your Venus" being repeatedly played on the radio (I'm just picking the Greek deities here because they were the first ones who came to mind)? Do you have dreams about a certain kind of landscape or find yourself longing to travel to a particular country, even one that is not representative of your ancestry?

The God/desses often will send you subtle hints, rather than hit you over the head with the equvalent of a 2x4.

I first met the Goddess Rhiannon in my teens. I was always horse crazy, read books about them, collected models of them, etc. I would also have dreams about them. The song "Rhiannon" by Fleetwood Mac was popular at the time. This was back when Stevie Nicks used to say before she sang the song, "This is a song about a Welsh witch." I read everything I could about witchcraft, which back then only amounted to the history of the witch trials, since witchcraft and Wicca were not popular yet. But I couldn't find anything about Rhiannon. I instinctively knew that Rhiannon was a Goddess, so I turned to Welsh mythology and there She was. A little after that I discovered Evangeline Walton's novels about Her. I was drawn to Her and She let me know that I was to follow Her. And I have never looked back. Like I said, subtle clues here and there.
