I have a Poseidon problem

As such, I need to get this mini shrine kit to Poseidon out of my house a.s.a.p. I’ll even ship it for the cost of postage alone if it means he leaves me be.

Basically, he turned up during meditation a few months ago during one of my High Day rites, and then got pissed when I said no to him after he asked for the sort of intimacy I reserve strictly for the gods I serve as priest. I’ve never encountered him before then, nor had any significant relationship with him. I wasn’t opposed to having a relationship with him before then, but if that’s the way you greet a potential devotee, and then get pissed when they say no, I want nothing more to do with you. (I am still considering cursing his name anyway and having a good ol’ execrating, but we’ll see if this is all it’ll take before we resort to that.)

See, apparently he’s been sending spirits and other shadowy things to Bakhu to attack me. I fought one a while back and did some warding, but apparently it wasn’t enough and Hekate had to cocoon me (Her words) to protect me.  Which explains why I’ve been having so much trouble getting to Bakhu recently, because Hekate’s been stopping me from getting there. And now it’s come to a head and this shrine kit needs to go.

Someone else might just throw it out, and it might come to that, but I thought I’d at least offer it to any Poseidon devotees first. Please spread this around if you know someone who might be interested, and tell them to get in touch if they’d like to have it. Please help me get Bakhu back and stop him invading my space.

Shrine Kit – Greek God Poseidon – Sea Chest, Artwork, Prayer Beads – Gold and Blue

I was actually going to sell the beads separately, but I felt it made more sense to sell them all together, which is why the second image doesn’t include the beads. This is for those who have had better experiences with Poseidon than I have. But it is a beautiful kit, and would make for an excellent mini altar set-up for those with little space, or to take with you. Either the chest, or the art, could sit on a desk at work without drawing undue attention to themselves as pagan shrines.

This is a mini devotional shrine kit for the Greek God Poseidon.

The small papier mache treasure chest is painted with gold acrylic paint, and decorative paper has been used to embelish the box. It has a layer of varnish to protect it from damage.

The 4in x 4in canvsas is a paper art piece made with one of the same pieces of decorative paper used for the chest. This piece is titled, ‘The Gates of Poseidon’.

The prayer beads are made with turquoise, sodalite, and black onyx, with a silver dolphin charm. The beads were chosen to represent the colours of a stormy sea, and are beaded together semi-randomly.

In the chest, there is a small ceramic offering dish, a tealight, and two frankincense incense cones. There is enough room to fit the prayer beads inside, as well as any other little trinkets you might want to include.

The entire kit contains:
– one painted and embellished papier mache chest
– one 4in x 4in canvas paper art
– one set of prayer beads
– one ceramic offering dish
– one tealight
– frankincense incense cones

Everything will be packaged securely to prevent damage during shipping.

I have been making all the beads

Apparently it is prayer bead making season. I’ve made all of the above over the past fortnight or so. Which is good, I guess, because I sort of felt like I’d been making all the other things, and didn’t have enough prayer beads around. So I made some. Quite a lot.

The left photo shows prayer beads for Poseidon, Mars the Centurion, Hephaistos, the Dark Goddess (whoever She is), two for Isis, two for Heru, and one for Sobek. The set for Mars followed His guidelines for it. It had to have 100 beads for 100 soldiers, plus one for Himself as their centurion, and the red tassle, which echoed the helmet of a Roman soldier. Poseidon’s set was made with the sense of capturing the colours of the stormy sea; it has an unofficial title of the Rage of Poseidon.

The set made for the Dark Goddess wasn’t a set I was planning to make, but I found the beads all together in a little bag in my bead box, and wondered who I’d planned to make it for onceuponatime. I decided to string them anyway and not waste them, and the energy I got suggested a name of The Dark Goddess, whoever She is. She may be Hekate, or Kali, or the Morrigan, or some sort of darker death deity energy like that. I have no idea who. But that’s the perception I got as I was making it.

The second photo shows some of the more recent creations. With the exception of the rose quartz set, the other beads are for Sobek. The rose quartz beads were guided by Hekate; She said it is a set for healing, love, and peace. It is made with rose quartz and amethyst.

The other sets for Sobek are experiments, playing around with structures that could be used for a set prayer. I had a request for something like this over at Per Sebek, and thought I’d have a go and see what I could come up with. I wrote a prayer that might be used with the beads last week, and this was me trying to design some beads to go with it. I think I’ll refrain from listing those Sobek beads just yet, while I iron out the kinks in the prayer and how to use them, but they will turn up eventually. I want to spend some time using them myself, just to see how well it works, and figure out the best way to format the prayer, and make any tweaks to it, before I decide how I’m going to include it, and print it it out. I’ll probably post some more about that as I work on it, but that’s the plan, to have a set of beads for Sobek that go with a set prayer, if that’s the sort of thing you work well with.

Anyway, I have more things to do, and I want to get some of those beads listed this weekend, just so they’re up. I have a few things to retake photos of, but other than that, it’s a matter of sitting down and getting the work done.
