Subtle Reminders

Two posts in one day! Shocking, I know. But I just had an experience I have to share.

I neglected both meditation and rituals this week, and I’m pretty sure my patron, Manannán mac Lir, just chastised me for it. I frequently make an offering of incense to him, in part because it seems appropriate and in part because I like the reminder of his presence in my life.

Tonight, during my meditation time after making my offerings, the incense would not stay lit! Once I realized what was happening, I promptly apologized and made an additional offering of brandy to him.

The incense is now burning happily and filling my bedroom with its odor… and making me sneeze for the first time ever!

Okay, okay, I get the hint: I won’t neglect my devotionals again.
