Asked Oshun a favor…

I need to have something resolved in the most diplomatic way possible, and she said she’d help, and then the bill came for that help. Expect a weekly Oshun post! To prepare for these, I get to re-read every single thing I own on Herself. I get to make her a crown. I get to do so many things for Her! 

My relationship with her is a little less solid than I like. I was planning on leaving my House (group of Orisha worship) for an entire host of reasons, and I was asked to leave before I got the chance for failing to be as “chemical free” as they wanted me to be.

Now, my House had it’s issues, and I can’t say I was getting my needs met there, but at least I had a monthly gathering to go to to connect with the Orisha, I had brothers and sisters in the faith, I had community. Now, with the move, I wouldn’t have that anyway, but the Orisha are a tricky batch of deities to worship alone. 

That don’t mean my Oshun altar ain’t a fabulous piece of work, mind you. It doesn’t mean I don’t take my initiations seriously or that I shirk my obligations.

Its just that, I can only bang one drum at a time.

I’m fully aware that if and when The Lady wants me to have community, I shall have it again.

But for now, surrounded by rivers and waterfalls, I give gratitude that She has called me home and holds me in Her arms.
