I’m drunk and you’re sexy.
Folllow me maybe?
When you have to hold school children captive to promote your religious views, maybe you should rethink your religion.
Northwest Rankin High School in Flowood, Mississippi is under fire for allegedly forcing its students to attend and listen to Christian lectures during three assemblies held in April alone. Worse yet, students were barred from leaving and teachers blocked the exits to prevent any of them from doing so. One student was able to film one of the assemblies. As a result, a lawsuit has been filed on behalf of the students by the American Humanist Association. The organization filed the suit on Wednesday.
I had a vivid dream yesterday. It started with a large cafeteria full of people. We were all being handed special books with strange writing on the binding. We were told that if the writing glowed after we touched it that meant we were one of the 12 chosen. It did not matter which book you touched, if you were chosen it would glow. My book glowed. Someone asked how they would know if their book was broken and I explained that it’s not the book that is special. I reached over to show him. As I touched the binding of his book, it glowed, but it wouldn’t for him. Then the 12 were put into this trivia/scavenger hunt thing. I answered some questions and then things turned dangerous. We had things hunting us. Meanwhile I was searching for a book. I searched through an entire library. I was looking for The Book of Demeter. I tried using a computer to search for the Book but every time I tried to type ‘Demeter’ it would come out ‘Dmter’ or ‘Demtttr’ like I couldn’t press the right keys. Finally I tried searching the Arts section of the building/museum I was in. I found a large tome about a foot wide. It had a red cloth covering with yellow and blue flowers. It was huge. I found what I was looking for. As I went to open the cover I had to hide suddenly - someone was coming. Then the book was gone. Later a small blonde woman came up to me and handed me a book so small it fit in the palm of my hand. She said that she had to take The Book to protect it and she had to carry it on her back. It was very heavy so she shrunk it. That is when I woke.
Now I’m searching for what it all means, and for this mysterious Book.
It’s the most straightforward dream I’ve ever had. Most dreams kinda jump around but this one stayed on topic. It was like watching a movie, but being in the movie at the same time. It’s still bugging me.

Alright then, enjoy being an ignorant little egocentric teen.
Parts of this sound familiar… Was it posted on tumblr originally?
Reblogging Amber Drake’s most excellent post on the myths surrounding Loki and His worship.
It has recently come to my attention that a few Lokeans are spreading complete and utter BS about what you have to do to become a Real Lokean™.
There was a post about this last year (I think) in the lokeans group on Livejournal.. I thought it was a freak occurrence, but apparently it’s still going on.
The bullshit list:
- You have to Oath to Loki for life, ASAP
- You have to marry Loki and become a god-spouse, ASAP
- Lokean god-spouses are special/better/more worthy than any other kind of devotee
- If Loki really loved you, He would marry you
- Lokeans are specifically targeted for spirit attacks
You do not voluntarily Oath to a god before you have spent some years getting to know the god, and the religion in general.
Oathing is serious business, and the gods do not look kindly upon oath-breakers.
You do not have to marry Loki to follow Him. God-spouses (and god-slaves/-servants) are rare. It looks like there are more than there actually are, because some of the new ones write about it on the internet.
Also it’s the deity who asks the mortal to marry them, and even then you don’t have to, and even if you do choose to marry, you can have an option for a divorce in your marriage oath.
Don’t let anyone tell you what kind of relationship you have to have with Loki. It’s between you and Him. And He is perfectly capable of letting you know what kind of relationship He should want Himself.
God-spouses are not in any way better or more worthy than other devotees.
It’s not exactly something to yearn for, either, since the gods demands much more of their mortal spouses when it comes to Work. And studying and training to be able to do the Work.
I firmly believe that the gods love all their devotees.
Spirit attacks are rare. From what I know, violent “Poltergeist” type attacks areextremely rare.
There is no reason to go around being scared and worrying about being attacked.
The only thing you should do to follow Loki,
is to love Him, honour and respect Him.

I think that one of the huge challenges facing modern heathenism in its various forms is the lack of diversity in secondary sources.
In any given branch of heathenism, there are a handful of really influential writers. Granted, most of them reached that position because of their work and…
Any idea how hard it is being an unwilling
I want to believe in something more than myself yet I want that ‘thunk in the head’ so many Pagans speak of. Am I not worthy? Or am I just to dense to notice?
I guess I’ll just stick with chaos magick until I figure shit out.
Loki is a deity who singlehandedly orchestrates Ragnarok, which includes the death of most of the gods, the near extinction of mankind, and an infernal BBQ of all 9 worlds.
And you want to have a deep and personal trusting relationship with this guy?
I realize he is a complex dude. I dig…
Zeus used to rape women by turning into other things yet no one paints him with the evil brush. Lot’s of deities have a darker side but they are not nearly as looked down upon as Loki. People also worship Lucifer but I don’t see people griping about that.
How about you worry about yourself and let people walk the path that is right for them? As Pagans we ALL have enough finger wagging directed at us. Let it go.
A white wolf or husky dog walking along the road (in the same place my radio did that weird thing I posted about a while back!) and
The moon was blood red.
Now the moon thing was really weird because I didn’t see it the whole drive until a couple miles from my house. It’s only half moon and it was blood freaking red. I was hoping I could grab my camera and get a picture but it disappeared (behind some clouds I assume) right after I noticed it and there are too many trees around my house to see it even on a clear night. It was not bloody yesterday I know that much!
Does the moon look bloody to anyone else tonight?
Why do all the interesting Heathens blog at night? *angst*
So much to read, eyes to tired to get with the program!
(snipped for long)
The only thing that amused me, is the timing of her rushing in my room, and also how earlier today when I had meditated I had heard Loki…
Not a Lokean, because I don’t exclusively work with Loki (and he’s not the primary deity that I work with anyway).
But from my experiences with Loki, it seems very unlikely that it’s him. In my random chats with him (because he pops in and out as he wants/is convenient), he’s more likely to irritate the hell of Lucifer for shits and giggles, than threaten me and the people I love. However, Lucifer’s always somewhere nearby if Loki’s near, which can either say much about Lucifer’s protectiveness, or much about Loki’s ability to cause mayhem, depending on how you’d like to interpret it.
He doesn’t seem the type threaten without carrying it out, and he doesn’t even need to threaten. He’s a god, they don’t just talk, they do. It just seems like something else is there, pretending to be Loki, and is play-acting at being powerful until it gets enough fear and submission to begin to actively dominate the person. (Mhm, I’m speaking from experience at how these things work, because I’ve had that kind of shit before.)
Again, it’s probably time to reaffirm that it’s up to the practitioner to set the boundaries as to how far it goes. Being threatened is not okay. If you’re being threatened, you have to stand up and say “this shit stops here, right now”. Deity or demon, it’s an entity, and as far as I’m concerned, the power (and responsibility) rests with the practitioner (Ancient Chinese teachings say that a person has 10 parts to their soul [or 10 layers] and negative entities only 1 and that the yang energy of a person is always enough to overwhelm the yin energy of negative entities in normal situations.). You have the responsibility to yourself and your loved ones to cut it off when it’s at the lower stages, instead of waiting until it escalates and spreads. You don’t want to wait until it gains momentum then flail around for help, because not everyone will be able to, and even then, whatever it is may just return. Negative entities feed off your fear, and the more afraid you are, the more trapped you feel, the tighter their grip.
Also, lessons in identifying entities and differentiating them wouldn’t go amiss either. Each deity has their own series of identifying signs, that are likely to be common to a group of followers (eg, Luciferians I’ve spoken to says that Lucifer tends to give an ache or numbness in the left arm/shoulder region, and Loki’s followers tend to agree with me that Loki is associated with chartreuse/green). There are other entities that are talented in mimicry (eying you, Loki), but even if the “voice” is the same, without the identifying signs, hesitate and be cautious. Even if all the signs are there, but it seems out of character for them to say that, use a different medium to confirm (tarot, runes, whatever floats your boat). My first experience with Loki was him taking on Lucifer’s voice, but the color in my mind was green, instead of blue, and his voice gradually shifted to his own.
And for your own sakes, always be cautious. This isn’t a fuckin’ playground. I’m not scolding you, Gods know I was the very same as an inexperienced little idiot, and I’ve paid my price for it. Keep your head down starting out, and you might even avoid being mauled by negative entities and nightmares that follow you into bright daylight. And things seem to be using the internet to get around these days; I’ve met one very nasty and malicious person who used the internet to send nasty things into my home (by-passing the ancestral shields; fml) and into the homes of my other friends. It’s been 3 years, and I still can’t look into mirrors and have to have a light on whenever i travel around my apartment at night, that’s how horrific it turned out.
Last but not least, this isn’t a love-fest, your deity doesn’t love you, especially if it’s actually them saying shit like that. Deities have their own agendas, and your interests mean little to them. So please, watch out for yourself, even if it is your deity. Don’t sign contracts without reading the fine-print. Don’t even sign it at all if you can help it. Sometimes you can be a free-lancer (working with different deities as their and your needs coincide), but your deity won’t tell you that if you don’t ask. They’re mostly masters of half-truths and outright evasions.
Basically, the TL;DR here is to use your common sense. Treat your deities as highly dangerous individuals you can’t tell the motive of.
And… that’s all my rambling, I think. I’ll not even go into how problematic the whole event OP recounted is.
Thank you very much!
In my own short stint as a Lokean, I got a lot of shitty feelings. I have a big hunch that there is someone else (maybe many someones) feeding off all of the attention Loki is getting recently.
This is really good advice, dudes.
Also may want to consider mental health as well. Blaming something on a God, any God is just like saying “The Devil made me do it”. We have to remember that we are in control of our Will. When a voice is making threats it is time to put up barriers and if that does not work it’s time to step back and think “Is this an outside force or do I need to seek (mental) help?” I think a lot of times, people forget that sometimes the Gods are talking to you, and other times you are just talking to yourself. It sounds like there are some family issues with the OP so I recommend the OP see a doctor.
Psych student in me coming out again sorry.
