I’ve written in an earlier post how Loki came into my life and I’ve also written a little about how my patterns of devotion have been changing. Saturday has become the day I devote time and thought to Loki. Last Saturday I received an email that led to me writing something for Loki. This Saturday I feel I should post what I wrote on my own blog. The photo is of the candle burning on my altar for Loki as I write this post.
Words from my heart
Loki, you came unlooked for, unasked for into my life.
Bound one, your challenge forced me to face my bindings.
Shifter of forms, you lead me to change.
I honor You!
Burning one, you scare me still!
I don’t know what you see in me,
Why I interest you,
But I know you come calling.
Calling in the darkness
Shining in the silence
Mystery and Mischief
I honor You! I praise you!
I’ve even come to love you.
You, the disreputable friend!
The one that speaks truths no-one else will face
The one bringing joy in the madness
The one whose pain we turn away from
The one who forces us to see
The one who scares us in the night
The one who holds us when we cry
The one who gives us the blade with which to cut our bindings
If we have the courage to turn and take it
If we choose to try.
Uninvited, unexpected, uncomfortable,
Yet welcomed, honored, praised and loved!

Nice to see the bead mat being put to good use:)
All the bead mats are in use around my shrine areas Greg 🙂
