Your Goddess/god - How do you pick, or do they pick you?

:unsure: MM everyone.


I have a question about how to find a particular Goddess/God. First, do you think its important to have them identified e.g as Isis and Osiris, or Baast and the Green Man? Or do you think because they are multi-faceted its ok to just have a female and male figure? I really would like to identify a Goddess and God, but because of my mixed up and busy life, I don't feel that I have had time to meditate and be properly rawn to them and they haven't made an appearance to draw me to them. What are your thoughts, should I just give it time or do you have any tips advice on what kind of things I could do to bring them into the light?


Thanks :lol:

That's up to you really. Some people believe that all gods and goddesses are aspects of the one (or two) supreme divine being(s). Others believe that the deities are separate and distinct beings in their own right. Work out what you feel comfortable with, and what you understand to be how it works. It may take a while. I wavered between different ways of understanding it for a long time before finally coming to a conclusion that made sense to me.


It sounds like you already know how to identify if you have a connection with a deity- you say you haven;t had much time to meditate and think about it, so I think you'll probably find some of your answers when you do start going through that process

Thanks for your advice, I guess everything in its own time, in the meantime I will just continue as I am and wait for the Goddess/God to make themselves known to me if/when they want too.

      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???"

      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.
