A few questions...
Post # 1
I have a few questions for experienced Norse Pagans.

1. Odin spoke to me once, but I don't know how to speak back to him. How can I?
2. My parents do not know about me being a pagan, and if they found out, they'd hate me. How can I build an altar that my parents and curious little sister won't find?
3. How do I give an offering to the gods and goddesses?

Thanks in advance!

1.) Start working with him and praying to him. I had a similar experiance, except he didn't speak to me. he looked at me and it sent a surge of energy through my whole body. 'Twas wonderful.

2.) This is always a difficult task. Ask Odin for his guidance and protection when informing them of your newfound religion. They cannot force you to convert to any other religion. That choice is yours and yours alone. If they don't accept your religion, do not get discouraged. Odin and the other gods will be at your side when you need them.

3.) Normally, an alter is required to give an offering. When I offer to the gods, I invoke them and we usually share. But when we don't, I set the meal on their alter and after I feel like they're done with it, I throw it out or eat it.

I hope this helps! If you have anymore questions, feel free to mail me!

1. You could always try meditation, trance and divination for this as well.

2. Altars don't have to be the sterotypical altar you're thinking of. You could make an offering-jar, which is like a movable small altar. We typically fill it with things the deity would like, symbols that represent them and what they stand for. To anyone else, it just looks like a jar full of "stuff". Easy to move, easy to hide, easy to use. Win/win.

3. Depends on which God or Goddess you wanted to give an offering to. All of them have their own likes and dislikes. In Norse tradition, it's common to "blot" for a God. Wherein you give them verbal praise of somekind, normally offer them up food and drink if you are able. Sometimes it can be as simple as putting a small piece of your own dinner back into the earth as a way of offering it up.
