I have been going through some things today with a spirit I am trying to work with and it gave me an idea for this topic.
Question what type of offerings do you like to use? Intuitive offerings where you work closely with a deity on discovering what offerings it likes, or do you look up lists of offerings for specific deities.
I ask because I work with deities that are or seem unknown. Like how some feel connected to Anubis, the deities I feel connected to are spirits I encounter. They are not deities specific to any pantheon though some seem to come from differing cultures, but I merely get the feeling of a culture, no specific deities.
This isn't easy to explain. Seeing how I work with non specific spirits I have come to rely on intuition with my offerings.
I wonder if others work with spirits in this way?
What brought this topic up for me today was that I had set out some Ryolite stones for a particular spirit I am trying to forge a relationship with, but it just hadn't felt right and the offering did not seem to be accepted.
I did a spiritual jewelry cleanse and charge today and kept the salt I used in the cleansing.
I relaxed for a bit. Finally I decided to use the Ryolite in a small spell bag to be carried around.
Once the Ryolite had been taken away from the altar and used the space felt empty. This did not set with me.
I gave up and watched a youtube vid and the idea struck me to try and use my leftover salt as an offering and see how that would go.
Now everything feels so much better. I suppose that was all it took.
The spirit is not fond of Ryolite or perhaps stones in general, but is satisfied with salt?
What has been some of your experiences with similar things if you all don't mind?
