Message from Minerva ?

Most Pagans /Wiccan’s choose their own personal Gods /Goddesses from a huge pantheon of Greek,Roman ,Egyptian or Norse ones,they choose them for personal reasons and keep the same ones all their life or they swap and change depending on the spells or rituals they are conducting.

The ones I relate to most are Cernunnos the nature God and the Goddesses Freya (because of my Norse heritage) and Athena because she symbolises wisdom and is accompanied by an owl.

Well,you can laugh at this if you want but last night I had to vacate my bedroom due to a HUGE spider that seemed to have some kind of egg sack attached to it *shudder* ,I lost the spider and because I had no idea where it was there was NO WAY I was sleeping in the bedroom !! So I camped out in the living room with my cat Goddess Freya,who was most puzzled to be in a different room for bedtime 

She didn’t know what to do with herself !!

It was so uncomfortable for me ,having to sleep on a two seater sofa with my fibromyalgia,hip and spine problems ,but I will be sleeping there again tonight because I am not going back into that room until it has been gutted and cleaned out,while I am at it I am going to de clutter and re arrange the furniture, which is long overdue.

Anyway, I have heard of Pagan /wiccan people being contacted directly by their chosen God or Goddess but it has never happened to me…

Until last night,I was in one of my weird sleep States (that a sleep clinic confirmed is where my brain is wide awake but my body is paralysed) I could hear a woman’s voice over and over again just saying the word “MINERVA”

I wondered what that was all about ,then when I was awake properly and up and about I realised… Minerva is the Roman name for the Goddess Athena

I have four Athena owls on my altar, I collect owl things but these are the only Athena/Minerva related ones I have

Athena’s owl was a “little owl”

Proper Athena owls have the letters AOE on them

The Goddess of poetry,crafts and wisdom…my living room happens to be the room where most of the things I have made are kept because they are mostly altar items ,and I used to write poetry,but mostly I think the message was about WISDOM because it is not long ago that I found out that I am an INFJ and a big part of being one of those is wisdom !

So was it Minerva actually talking ? Who knows but I am sure that if it was my mind putting the voice there I would hear Athena instead,as I never refer to her as Minerva.

Athena

Its strange how you can get drawn to something for years and not know why,

This is particularly weird because I am scared of statues (yes,even though I specialise in graveyard photography and lots of graveyards have statues)

My very first day at photography college I did a photo of a statue in the college grounds,it is a replica of the statue on the town hall roof

My college photo way back in 2000

The one on the town hall

I was not Pagan then and I was still terrified of birds ,so I was certainly not an owl fan !

When I became Pagan I learnt about Athena and her little owl

Then I discovered the owl is my power animal, this is a little owl,at the bird of prey sanctuary my husband volunteers at,their Latin name is Athena noctua

My grand daughter meeting a little owl with my hubby

My husband psychically found this in a charity shop

Very like the one I stumbled upon on Google

I psychically found this one

Typically found on Greek coins

A typical Greek tourist ornament.
So it seems I was meant to be Pagan,I was meant to have the owl as my power animal and maybe Athena should be my personal Goddess alongside Goddess Freya !
I do not approve that the Athena statue in town doesnt have an owl though !
