Yule 2014

I keep meaning to write here, but never really seem to get around to it. Now Yule has passed, I’ve been away, but I still want to write a bit of my Yule celebrations.

I managed to hold my celebration on the day of Winter Solstice this year, I had the day off, and enough time on my hands to prepare a bit.

The ritual went very well. Everything felt very present, and it was slightly intense. I’m not going into details, but I felt so good afterwards.

After my ritual, it was time for a nice meal. I had made a vegan nut roast with all the trimmings (I’m a vegetarian, after all). Yum!

It was a very good celebration indeed.

A new start

Although I’ve known I’ve been a pagan for a long time, and although I used to practice (I even was in a coven for a period), the last few years have been kind of “dead”. At some point I kind of lost a piece of myself. Hard to explain, so I’m not going to. Besides, it’s not very important.

I now feel like getting back into doing the things I liked so much, to start doing what I deep down inside my heart know is right for me. And I can hardly wait! I’ll start with celebrating Midsummer. I know most pagans call it Litha or the like, but for me, I prefer the more time of year names, like Midsummer, Midwinter etc.

This is going to be my Book of Shadows. That’s why it will be anonymous, sort of. People who knows what I am might get the link, though, but I don’t want it to be super open, and show up if someone should search my name on the big web.

So, that’s all for now. I want to get this BoS to look a bit better…
