For those of you that are theists, I'm wondering about your experiences with gods/goddesses.

Did you have a sudden, unexpected experience with a certain god or goddess, or did you have to intentionally work to make connection with your deity? If you had to work to make connection, was meditation your primary method?


My experience is similar to Aisling's. Some of the Ladies I work with came to me when I was very little. I only just realized that Isis has been with me since I was a little girl-I've been serving her all this time, and I didn't know. I'm not a Kemetic, nor am I particularly interested in Egypt, but she doesn't seem to care much. She's nice like that, though. Kali called me in a very different way, I had no idea who she was for a long long time, but She is the deity I mainly work with for transformational work, and the magickal system I use most and am studying now is shakta tantra. I also recently found out that the Goddess I was dreaming about all last summer and who still turns up from time to time is Ix Chel, a Mayan moon, magic and fertility goddess, she is another manifestation of Isis energy. I also have worked with Kuan Yin since I was very young, as She was one of my mom's patronesses. think some of the reason for this extremely eclectic group of goddeses is related to previous incarnations, and work that I was doing for those specific deities at the time that is unfinished. Trying to tie up my loose ends, this time around, I guess.

I also used to work with Yahweh, and kinda still do, as I teach in a Jewish temple pre-K. I am on friendly enough terms with Him, although I don't really work with Him directly anymore. The Gods I work with now are Ganesh, Agni, Shiva and Osiris. And I went to them, unlike any of the goddesses I work with, who all came to me.

Goddess grant me:
  The power of Water,
  to accept with ease & grace what I cannot change.

  The power of Fire,
  for the energy & courage to change the things I can.

  The power of Air,
  for the ability and wisdom to know the difference.

  And the power of Earth,
  for the strength to continue my path.
