The other night I had a dream visit from Loki.
I was in a forest in front of a small cabin. I entered and found Loki and an ex-friend inside.
They were dressed in leathers and furs. Loki had a crown of crow and magpie feathers. I know many associate crows with Loki, I personally associate magpies with him.
They were there in the roles of shamans.
Loki bade us sit down in a circle.
The cabin was dimly lit by oil lamps and there was incense burning.
My ex-friend made some mystical, intricate movements with her hands towards me and chanted: “Shah, shah, shah, shah, shah!”
Then Loki made some mystical, intricate movements with his hands and chanted: ” Feh, feh, feh, feh, feh!”
I got the impression this was some kind of pre-initiation.
Then I woke up.
I was very ambivalent about seeing my ex-friend. I haven’t spoken to her since I cut her out of my life for being toxic several years ago. Maybe Loki wants me to befriend her again? I don’t know if I’ve quite forgiven her yet for saying that after I turned Pagan (that is after I found Loki; I was a Pagan for a couple of decades before that) I had turned myself into a monster. That was very hurtful.
