UPG relitive in beg decis
Post # 1

As my horrible title might not have made clear, i wanted to kind of hear peoples idea on a question that i think we all consider or have considered when it comes to deity work.

Often times youll hear questions about "is this the right deity for me" or "is this a sighn from this deity or that deity" and a popular answer and in my opinion a correct one, is that only research and your own instincts can tell you that. But what i wanted to hear mass opinion on had more to do with genuine confusion on a topic.

I think weve all had those moments where we are pulling our hair out in confusion on something, not just something magick related. As i just said above, people often seek out those already following a certain deity.

So although i have my own developing opinion, id like to hear peoples thoughs:

Does UPG from another person apply to a newcomer whos actually done research and studied their instincts but are still confused? Because as we know everyone is different and really its hard for me to ask the question clearer than that.

Unverified Personal Gnosis is what UPG stands for.

I think in cases like what you mentioned, PCPG would be more relevant for someone wanting to reach out to those who know the deity. (PCPG being Peer Collaborated Personal Gnosis). Many people have differeing experiences, but PCPG tends to be a little more clearer- as it means several people have had similar experiences and results, which to me sounds more reliable.

In the end, like you had said, it really will come down to the individual though. No one is able to say 100% "yes/no that is what the deity meant" or interpret their actions for someone else.

The reason I asked the question, what is UPG, was to try to get posters to write what they mean in full; not with just initials. This site is world wide, and those letters may mean nothing to those for whom English is not their first language.
