As I’ve only been on the druid path a little over a month, much of the time dedicated to this path has been used for studying. And study I have! I never realized the amount of information I was going to be dealing with. Here’s what I’ve studied so far…
Many books. I am reading and studying four books at a time. Right now it’s The Feast of the Morrighan, Celtic Golden Dawn, The Path of Druidry and also Our Own Druidry. I spend time with each book daily. Good thing I don’t have a TV!
I’m learning there is much more I need to learn. I have studied about the three rays symbol and it’s meaning. The one thing all of the books I’m reading agree on is that one of the rays stand for knowledge. That I’m getting!
I’ve learned that the goddess who called me is really more like three goddesses. The Morrigan. What I’ve been able to ascertain in that regard through trance work is that I have been called specifically by Badb. She is assisting me in prophecy and magic in general. Two of my personal strengths and interests. Funny I had no idea that those were her realms when she first called me. I have only discovered her ties with those through my research. It never ceases to amaze me how things work out in the esoteric realms. But that was my experience in the past so I shouldn’t be surprised.
Nature. It’s all about nature in many ways. As I have MS walks and excursions in nature are pretty much off the plate for me. But I do have a large indoor garden that I tend to. I have been working to get to know the different energies of my plants. I even did a trance session where I became one of my plants and experienced life through its eyes. Pretty powerful perspective!
And I’ve started using the crystal ball for divination. The Morrigan assists me there. I’ve had some good results so far. I’ll definitely keep at it.
Then there’s the three realms. I have had experience working in other worldly realms before so this I was mostly a matter of learning new labels to attach to my discoveries.
Whew! Not bad for someone who’s only been dedicated to this path for a month and a half. I look forward to the next revelation. Keep studying!
