A Month of Devotional Thought — Hera, Day 31

On this, the last day of the month, the topic is what advice I would give someone who was just beginning to learn about Hera. I would advise looking at all of the mythos surrounding Hera, not just the portion that people use to “support” the two-dimensional view of her that is most common. Also,…

A Month of Devotional Thought — Hera, Day 30

Today’s topic is any interesting UPG that I may have on Hera. First however, I would like to go over what the term UPG means it means Unverified (or Unusual) Personal Gnosis. While gnosis does mean understanding or knowledge, the┬áPERSONAL part is often just as important as the gnosis being unverified or unusual. Sometimes a…

A Month of Devotional Thought — Hera, Day 29

Today’s topic is about Hera and what I wish I knew about her and do not. And for me, I wish that I knew more about how she was worshiped in the Mycenaean and Early Classical periods in Ancient Greece. I am especially interested in how she was worshiped within the home instead of in…

This is a perception that, in my opinion, really was thrust into prominence by…

A Month of Devotional Thought — Hera, Day 27

Today’s post is about how my relationship with Hera has changed over time. And this is both an easy one and a difficult one to write. When I first started being “called” by the Hellenic Gods, it wasn’t any of the daughters of Chronos who were doing the calling, it was Athene — who later…

A Month of Devotional Thought — Hera, Day 26

Today’s topic is about a time when Hera refused to help. And this is about a time when I needed to get MYSELF out of a bad relationship that had actually been emotionally abusive from the very beginning, even though I hadn’t ┬árealized it from the very beginning. She allowed me to realize over time…

A Month of Devotional Thought — Hera, Day 25

Today’s topic is one that I had to do some serious thinking about to narrow down to just one. It is a time when Hera helped me in particular. Interestingly enough, it was a time where I hadn’t asked her to do so, although I have been thanking her regularly for since. It was for…
