Is it acceptable?

Post # 1

So I'm walking the path of Norse Paganism, but somethings nudging me to start looking at the Egyptain Patheon as well. Is it acceptable to worship Norse Deties and Egyptain deities?

Blessings.

Absolutely yes. Make your path your own. Customise it to your needs, wants, and likes.

I agree with Quixote. Follow your souls calling. Even though all the gods are seperate and have their own personality I believe that all things are born out of the formless energy of the universe so no matter what gods you choose to honor you will never be wrong. The one thing you should be careful of is having altars of gods together who are of opposing pantheons. This is not to say you cannot honor and work with them it is just saying do not have their altars or offerings in close proximity. With norse and egyptian you should not have this problem but if say for example you would want to honor both norse and celtic you would want to keep them seperate because even though historically they have influenced each other they do have a history of their followers battling and being at odds with each other. I follow both fine by hkeeping them seperate. Sometimes you have to make sure to keep gods and spirits in the same pantheon seperate too if they are at odds. Just do your research and you'll be fine. Be true to your soul

I don't think it is acceptable to ask random people on the Internet whether they think your choice of path is acceptable. As long as you are happy with it, that is what matters.

Not if you want to be taken seriously by either of those paths. Its considered blurring the lines. Unless you slap ecclectic in front of your title and develop your own beleief system which you keep to yourself. In my experience.

I'd say it's perfectly acceptable. I'm walking the path of Kemeticism, but I work with Norse deities on the side. So why can't you do the opposite?

My suggestion is only that if you build altars/spaces for them both, you separate them some. Some of the things that the Norse deities like as offerings, Kemetic deities won't necessarily like. For instance, blood. Odin might enjoy a blood offering, while Min spazzes out about it.

I'd also suggest that you learn about the deity you want to work with (and their culture), before you begin working with them. For instance in the above, Odin might be okay with possessing your body and working through it, whereas Min spazzes out that you don't have the right equipment. Min's equipment is a big part of his personality, so removing that or not having is bad. Whereas Odin might not care as much because it isn't a big part of his personality.

I hope that makes sense. :)

I'd just keep both paths separate,instead of trying to blend them together.

I'm going to say that it is 100% acceptable. Who made up the rules that one path can't involve gods and goddesses from another if it meets your need? Your path is only as limited as you choose to make it. Those who can't see past the fact that other gods and/or goddesses may be needed by you are what I would call narrow minded.

Sataset said it perfectly, in my opinion.

When working with deities from multiple pantheons, you might take some time to "ask" both pantheons if they are okay working together and get a feel for the answer to that.

The only time it might get tricky is when it comes to labeling yourself and your practice. If you are wanting to consider yourself a Heathen, you'd likely lean more towards the eclectic side of Heathenry with a touch of Lokeanism (since I know you honor Loki). But hey, labels are labels, don't worry about them. Do what you want to do.
