The Path of Paganism provides practical advice and support for living an authentic Pagan life in our mainstream Western culture. Witches, druids, polytheists, and other Pagans will discover an experiential guide to the foundations and practices of these deeply meaningful traditions.
For John Beckett, practicing Paganism means more than adopting a set of books, tools, and holidays. Practicing Paganism means cultivating a way of seeing the world and your place in it. It means challenging the assumptions of mainstream society, keeping those that prove true and helpful while discarding those that show themselves to be false. It means building a solid foundation from which you can explore the nature of the universe, the gods, your self, and your community while learning to strengthen your relationship with all of them.
Random thought as I lay in bed last night contemplating the shiny I’ve won in one of Sebastian Lokason’s giveaways – the prize is Vanir related but I won’t know which of the prizes I’ve won until it arrives later in the month -and the amber hair dodad/bracelet (made by Ember at EmberVoices) that I won earlier this year.
Something is afoot. And not just the funny shaped thing on the end of your leg.
Anyway, ignore the terrible joke, I do have a point.
The god known as Frey, Freyr, Ingvi Freyr, or Frea, has a personal name, recorded a Ing. ‘Frey‘ and the variants mentioned above are titles meaning ‘lord’.
The goddess known as Freya, Freyja, Freo, Frowe, on the other hand does not have a recorded personal name. Her ‘names’ are titles, all meaning ‘lady’. So the question arises, does She have a personal name and if so, what is it?
