[Monday] Brief Hiatus

While I get adjusted to my new work schedule, posts will not be put up (from me). Hope to be writing again soon!

[Monday] Idea of the Week

Small flowers.

Confidence is not something inherent. Confident people are not always confident. Confidence involves both skill, repetition, and performance. Acting confident *can* help us become confident.

[Wednesday] Technology Spirits

Small flowers.

Technology is complicated. It can act as oppressor and resistance, often at the same time.

[Monday] Idea of the Week

Small flowers.

So, for this week, I want to suggest people contemplate what it means to *perform religion*. What does it mean to act religiously?

One thing I’ve noticed is that we have yet another Friday the 13th this month. I’m considering what role that date can have in the faith.

[Monday] Updates & Links

Small flowers.

Happy Monday. Sorry for not getting last Wednesday’s post on initiatory orders up. That was for a variety of reasons. One – work means I didn’t have much time to write it!

[Pagan Experience] Canon & Headcanon

Prayers from a devotional book.

Within the context of modern religions like the Otherfaith – in which everything we do would count as ‘UPG’ – the term is worse than useless.

[Monday] Assorted Links

Small flowers.

Later this week, I’ll be closing out the month with a post on the initiatory orders of the gods. If you have any questions about these, please send them to me or comment on this post, and I will try to cover them in the Wednesday post.

[Pagan Experience] The Spirit Althea Altair

Althea Altair serves as an initiator for those seeking deeper devotion to the Laetha. She initiates spirits and Other People into the initiatory order of Nix. Like her order, she represents negation and restraint.

[Wednesday] February Holy Days

IMG_1825

Witch spirits in the faith are spirits particularly adept at manipulating energy, both from the landscape and from other spirits. They may partner up with powerful spirits who carry lots of raw energies and make use of those energies for various spells and purposes.

[Monday] Contemplation

Small flowers.

I recently felt a bit of longing for the times when I would bury myself in the spirits’ world.

[Pagan Experience] Earth & Stars

I often question if the Otherfaith is an ‘earth-based’ religion.

[Hawthorne & Heather] Death & Slaughter

This piece will deal with animal death and killing. If those are distasteful to you, you will not want to read farther.

About the Faith
The Otherfaith is a modern polytheistic religion. We are urban-centric, technology-loving, and always keep our eyes to the future. We were born from the modern Pagan and polytheist movements, and from them we have grown and become new, modern, evolving - a new faith. In 2015, we go into this our fifth year and seek to create more solid practices and structures for the faith.
