You’ve found your god or goddess, but now what?
Paganism and the Gods
You’re new to paganism, and maybe you just recently discovered your god or goddess. Maybe both. While there are many forms of paganism and having a god or goddess in your religious practice isn’t required, for many it is something that comforts and helps them through troubling times. It also gives them a sense of peace and hope knowing their god and goddess are in their corner. Protecting them. Healing them. Working favors for them.
Having a god or goddess in your life is the same as a Christian having Jesus or God in their lives; however, you don’t have to “worship” your pagan deities. More often than not, pagans say they “work with” their gods and goddesses. Your relationship with your god or goddess will be more like a friendship or a working relationship, but can also feel like they are your father or mother too. The point is that the old gods and goddesses don’t need us to worship them. They have everything they need and don’t need people bowing down before them. They’d rather have you smiling at them as a friend would instead.
So you’ve found your god and goddess, but now you’re left wondering what’s next? How do I start this relationship with my god and goddess? Everyone’s relationship with their gods will be different and special in their own ways. Don’t feel like you have to follow a strict set of rules to work with your god or goddess. Do what you feel is right and true to you.
