About disirdottir

I’ve been a Pagan for over 15 years. In that time I’ve been a solitary, a part of local groups and large organizations, and a leader of local groups, and gone through each of those three phases more than once. I’m currently a cross between a solitary and a local group participant, which is a good balance. Relying on a group to fulfill all of one’s spiritual needs rarely does justice to either the group or the individual.

My conscious spirituality started with a strong resonance with the energies of nature, followed by appreciation, respect and affection for my ancestors. Eventually I began opening myself to the possibilities of interaction with the divine and exploring mysticism through trancework.

While widely read in world mythology, spiritually I’ve focused on exploring a small number of pantheons and their associated cultures in parallel, with a predominantly Reconstructionist methodology.

My longest-standing connection is to the Egyptian tradition, established almost a decade before I was aware I was Pagan. My focus is on Old Kingdom practice as based in Memphis.

My Celtic studies and my conscious Paganism came about around the same time. In this area I gravitate toward a Welsh/Romano-British/Gaulish focus.

Within the past few years I have also felt called to work within the Heathen tradition. I don’t have enough experience here yet to be able to say I have a focus on any particular region or set of practices.

My family has a deep history in New England, which is where I grew up. After trying out living in quite a wide variety of places for short stretches of time, I came to Seattle. Nearly a decade has passed, and the Puget Sound area and I have come to the mutually satisfying consensus that this is home.

    Hi,

    I noticed you’ve got a link to my blog! That’s great, but you should know that I’m Pagan rather than Heathen. While I worship the Norse gods, I’m not a follower of Asatru or any other reconstructionist faith.

    Also, The Gods’ Mouths is not specifically a Heathen blog — Galina Krasskova is the only regular writer who’s Heathen. The rest of us are Pagans :)

    I’d be happy to add this site to my blogroll, too.

      Hi, Elizabeth. :)

      My apologies for the mislabeling – I’ve made a new category, “Mystical Pagan”, which I hope will fit better. I’m sorry for having not properly drawn the distinction; I am aware it is significant.

      I’ve really been enjoying reading your blog – led there by interest sparked by your contributions to both Galina’s and Raven’s books – and would definitely be glad to be counter-linked. :)
