Heathen Practice - from slightly confused post

i was wondering if any heathens/norse deity worshippers could share with me how they practice their craft/beliefs. i am very new to my path and know some theory but not a lot of practical ;P

oh gee, what a question! :D

 

I know a lot of Heathens who are part of a kinship group (equivalent to a coven or a grove), and who do things as part of that group. Others of us are solitary. For a time I was part of a kin group - though we included non-Heathens (which does not appear to be normal practice).

 

what specifically do you want to know?

i would prefer to be solitary in my practice at least. what do i want to know, erm everything really, this is all new for me im used to wicca as a reference to most things so i know this is very different.

 

rituals? beliefs? celebrations? offerings and blessings?

 

sorry i know its a lot to ask, i am trying to read quite a bit, i suppose im just really excited and happy about my path :D

      I’ve posted a link (in links) to a BBC article in today’s news just to illustrate a bit of the colourful side of Paganism.  Perhaps it will do something to balance my prosaic take on the subject. i know little of Witchcraft but I enjoyed the article and like her approach.

      👍 It's as good a position as any and better than quite a few.

      Yes, it was in Nettle's "Who are your deities?" thread. I said "I seem to have become an atheist. That was never my plan, but here I am." Veggiedancer later said it better than me - "I don’t exactly believe in deities as such. I think they come from  our minds. Archetypes, ways of identify or characterising the spirit/ magic/ life or whatever it is we sense around us. Ways our minds try to explain the unexplainable to us???"
    • Moonsmith
      I’m probably second guessing Nettle wrongly but it wasn’t all that long ago that you would have read posts about alters, magic, Shamanism, spells etc. I think it was either Teatimetreat or Drachenfach that had a hex on her handbag and her car.  When the car was stolen it crashed and the thief was caught. I agree and would very much like to see more of the colourful side of Paganism back here.  Quite right Ellinas.  I do not understand how anyone can claim to be Pantheist (or even pantheist) and atheist at the same time even though the most prominent Pantheists do exactly that.  As I’ve said elsewhere: why can’t they call themselves Panists.  The prefix “pan” means everything and everywhere as in “pandemic”.  The god’s name arose from the adjective so it wouldn’t necessarily mean a devotee of Pan. pee ess - it may be worth mentioning that there are a vast number of belief groups under the umbrella word Paganism.  Druids Witches, Polytheist and Shaman are only a small part of what the greater picture of Paganism depicts. Dunno and don’t care are probably the biggest groups.

      All the above, plus the impression of a preponderance of atheism is currently, as well as historically, inaccurate.  Certainly, I am no atheist.  I believe MS rejects the term as applicable to himself.  Stonehugger, I think, recently said he had headed in that direction, but I've not seen the other resident atheists for a while. However, our ideas of deity are not the same, necessarily.
