I want to introduce you to someone that is very special to me – by the title of this post, I assume you think this is regarding my birth mother. In some ways, you are correct – she was there during my conception, the 9 months my physical mother carried me, and at my birth. She has been by my side my entire life.
Her name is Hecate/Hekate, and she is the Greek Goddess of the Crossroads.
Though I have not completed all the posts, I started a project of 30 posts detailing information about this Goddess. If you want to read the posts I have written, you can visit [+here] and find them, all neat and stuff. Any further posts will be here on this blog, but those first ones I wrote a bit ago.
The purpose of this post is to introduce you not only to the Goddess I have worked with most since I started down this path, as well as introducing you to the concept of a spirit family.
A spirit family can consist of your physical family, but generally consists of those spirits, ancestors, guides, and deities that were prominent in your spirit/souls conception, and are responsible in many ways for your existence on this planet, at this time. They are also the weavers of our spirits destiny – the lessons our spirit/soul learns in this life and any lives that have come before, and will come after.
We all have a purpose on this planet, and our spirit family is there to ensure we fulfill that purpose. It could be as simple as being as good a mother as we can to our children; it could be as complex as leading a revolution! Our destiny is very much our own, and with each choice/decision we make, we write the destiny we are supposed to have.
I can tell you right now that one of the biggest lessons my spirit family has laid out for me is the lesson of PATIENCE. I lack it, I lack it so bad that the most impatient of energies tremble.
So, that being said, Hecate is primarily responsible for my conception on this plane of existence – spiritually speaking. My physical parents are definitely to blame – haha – for my being here… But I would not be me without Hecates involvement in bringing my spirit/soul to the party at just the right time.
Because of this connection with the Goddess, much of my spirit work is with the Dead – I guess I would be called a medium, because I am capable of communicating with the spirits of animals and humans that have passed. I am a Devotee of Hecate, and I am proud that She is my Spirit Mother.
Remember when I was completely honest with you? Yeah, this is one of those posts that you can either gloss over, thinking I am crazy, or you can read it with interest. I don’t really care. My “crazy” doesn’t mean my photography is any less than it is.
