When I really want or need something to happen, Herakles WILL make it happen.
This is a reason I have to be careful about the things I wish for, whether I outwardly wish for them or if I wish for them deep down.
My temper usually gets the best of me and when I am wronged by someone, I have to step away. Just like today.
The Internet is paid up until June..it has been since January..why does it never work?!
It honestly feels good to have people on my side. Seriously.
|Anonymous Want's to know:
Don't bother with a knife, If I were you I'd literally crush that bitch's mind into a pile of pudding.
That’s not nice, Anon.
But honestly…I’m already the one everyone in my family believes all of these bad things about. Sometimes I wish I could do the things she’s done to me back to her..then I realize that won’t make the pain go away, and all it’ll do is make me look like a bad person. It’d be different if these things I said were only problems of the past..,but they aren’t.
Thank you for your message though. It shows me that someone cares about what I have to say. :)
When I was younger, my grandmother would watch me while my father was at work. She was abusive (physically and emotionally) and she would always play the victim to family members who knew nothing about everything that was going on.
One day she started an argument (like always) and called a bunch of people telling them I’d done such and such. She called me about a million different names and just made me feel like no one wanted me (I was in maybe 7th or 8th grade). I had already started cutting by that age, so out of hate for myself and having a bunch a blame put on me, I went down stairs into my kitchen and got a knife to cut myself with (I’d been using glass and other sharp things around the house).
I was facing the sink (the doorway to the kitchen would be facing my back) with the knife in my hand, I turned around and moved to a corner in the kitchen, trying to breathe and calm myself. The point of the knife was facing me. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to stab myself or cut myself, I was just taken to a point where I wanted to die and I didn’t care about who saw me.
My grandmother, was at the top of the stairs still yelling and came down stairs into the kitchen, she saw me with the knife and since then she’s been telling everyone I “pulled a knife on her” I was 12 or 13 years old CRYING WITH A GOD DAMN KNIFE FACING ME.
Don’t you fucking dare turn my pain into clutch for you to play victim. That was a night where I wanted to end everything and a night I felt hopeless. I felt like I deserved to die and that I wasn’t loved because I was stuck with an abusive person.
She tried to bring up that old lie again and I wasn’t going to fucking let her. She will never take me to that hopeless place ever again.
Someone somewhere is playing games. First I pull the exact card I was thinking of, then I do it again and this time it’s paired with a card where the deity is seen again.
I don’t know what signs I’m getting, but you’re going to have to be more direct.
Seriously, things like that just fly right over my head.
This is my set of daily prayers, performed in the evening. I’m publishing it here in case a newer Hellenic Polytheist needs something to use as a framework for writing their own daily ritual. This is a strongly reconstructionist ritual and will not be suitable for non-Hellenic polytheist purposes. Please do not attempt to incorporate it into a Wiccan, eclectic, etc practice; it will not work. Also, I will sigh angrily in your direction. Don’t make me regret publishing this.
THE GREEK DEITY HEKATE IS NOT A TRIPLE GODDESS
let me repeat
THE GREEK DEITY HEKATE IS NOT A TRIPLE GODDESS
Let me teach you a thing, folks.
So you’ve got this ancient Greek deity, Hekate. And She’s responsible for witchcraft, necromancy, the night, crossroads, some associations with wayfinding and dogs, etc. She’s also scary as fuck. None of this “harm none” bullshit; the brand of witchcraft She presides over is quite simply using witchcraft to destroy people who deserve to be destroyed. Rah rah curses, rah rah FUCKING NECROMANCY, all of that.
She’s also a maiden deity. Let me repeat that. Maiden deity. Maiden. Not mother. Not crone. Maiden. Period. There’s some UPG out there that She’s got a bit of a thing going with Hermes, but even then. Not mother. Not crone.
She is also not triplicate. Let me show you a picture.
Bam. Hekate. You see the torches? Hekate. You see how She’s not pregnant and not old? MAIDEN DEITY.
Let me show you some more pictures. Fucking ancient pictures. Because, you know, this is an ancient deity you’re running your mouths about. She existed long before you were able to portray Her as pregnant and barefoot and peaceful on the internet.
Here She is SETTING A MOTHERFUCKER ON FIRE. Note how there’s still one of Her and She’s not old or pregnant.
And here She is again on the left, SETTING A MOTHERFUCKER ON FIRE with Her torches. Yeah, real love and light. More like, She loves to light motherfuckers on fire. Notice again how there’s ONE of Her and She’s a young woman without pregnancy.
Are you getting the picture yet? Is it beginning to sink in yet that She’s not a triple goddess and she sure as hell isn’t a mother goddess or a crone? Are you beginning to realize being all-loving and all-light and “don’t cause harm, guys” is NOT HER FUCKING JOB?
Now let me show you where you fucking ignorant history-hating uneducated peasants got this “triple Goddess” idea from.
Hekate is the Goddess of Crossroads. As in literal street intersections. And ancient Greeks fucking loved to put statues out to watch over shit like that. Look up what a Herm is sometimes. It’s literally Hermes’ head and a dick. And they put that thing FUCKING EVERYWHERE. Ancient Greeks loved that shit.
So sometimes they set up statues of Hekate to watch over crossroads. And they needed some way to show She can watch over all the crossroads at once. So they’d go to places where three roads intersected at the same place and they sculpted three statues instead, so no matter which road you were coming from, Hekate would be watching you.
You see this? THIS IS CALLED A FUCKING METAPHOR.
First, note right off the bat the statues are identical. One isn’t pregnant and one isn’t old. THIS IS NOT A MAIDEN/MOTHER/CRONE IMAGE. Because Hekate is not a crone deity or a mother deity.
THERE ARE ALSO NOT LITERALLY THREE OF HER. THIS IS A METAPHOR. It symbolizes that She’s watching all roads. It’s like how in sculpture Moses is depicted with two spikes on his head. Is it saying he LITERALLY has horns? NO. It’s a metaphor for a fucking halo.
METAPHOR, YOU IGNORANT BABOONS. FUCKING METAPHOR.
Wanna learn about THIS Hekate? OUR Hekate? I recommend this page.
Y’all are welcome to worship a Maiden/Mother/Crone trio. That’s your right. You can even call her Hecate or Hekate or fucking Snoopy for all I care. But it’s not the same deity as OUR Hekate. Not if it’s a peace-loving, “harm none” promoting, love and light spouting, baby-birthing, old age looking Triple Goddess.
You might as well say that Zeus is the Triple Goddess.
don’t fucking anyone say that or I swear to god someone’s getting cut
