You cannot appropriate Gods — Hellenic Faith

Χαίρετε ἀναγνώστες!

I wanted to quickly reblog this post since I find it imperative that people realise this. The Gods cannot be appropriated. They call whom They will call, They are not bound to our mortal concepts of “race” and ethnicity and nationality.

People who claim that worshiping Gods outside your culture or ethnicity is “appropriation” are, quite simply, ludicrous individuals, often crypto if not blatant atheists, whose “metagenetics” or “racialist” view attempts to posit that the divine limit Their interactions with “foreigners” outside of “the race.” This stance can be understood as atheism because it denies that […]

I call bullshit or Odin is not your babysitter

Gangleri's Grove

There’s a meme making its way around Facebook lately that presents us with the story of an abused child who dies and is taken to Valhalla. Everyone, especially Odin, comforts the child and in the end, that child brings comfort to another abused child who also ends up in the hall of warriors. It’s lovely. It’s emotional. It’s sentimental. It’s also utter bullshit.

Now before this piece gets spun by the tumblr crowd as “Galina hates abused children” let me encourage reading comprehension. Let me also point out that an abused child is a survivor. They are resilient and worthy of immense respect. They are not however, warriors. We are so removed from the realities of our ancestors, from the idea that a necessary and expected passage into adulthood was serving as a warrior or soldier, that we use terms like ‘warrior’ and ‘battle’ metaphorically. There is a role for…

Bit of a financial hiccup

Hello everyone,

A friend of mine who is an artist producing devotional art pieces celebrating the Gods could use some help. Hopefully, me reblogging this will make her and her Etsy-shop a bit more widely known to people who did not know her or her work before. She makes beautiful pieces, her paintings particularly are stunning, but she also makes really nice statuettes. I myself own a herm that was made by her, which I use in my doorway shrine to Hermes Enodios, and am very happy with it. So, be sure to check out her Etsy shop, and don’t hesitate to contact her if you have any commissions.

Beloved in Light

So I lost my phone this weekend. I had an insurance plan so I got it replaced….unfortunately this added 225.00 to my bill that I am already stressing on paying since our household income has taken a huge hit. Somehow I am going to have to scrape up 450.00

That said I am looking to do some business. Get good prices right now on statues and icon paintings so I can get bills paid. The more immediate concern being the phone!!

Also I can’t get into my Facebook right now so please email me any work requests! lykeiabotanica@gmail.com

Or message me via my etsy shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/lykeiasbotanica
