I want to take a few minutes today, and share my writing altar for Cerridwen.
So with some great advice, I began to create another altar. How many does one girl need... right? But this one holds specific intent for divine inspiration. It honors Cerridwen, who is the goddess of the bards. She keeps the cauldron of knowledge and inspiration.
Each of the items I have included hold meaning and depth. The statue with the candle is a goddess representation. Yes I am aware it looks nothing like Cerridwen. But maybe my muse is young, beautiful, and has wings.
I pay tribute to the process. Tea is an important aspect. I fill it with an offering of hot tea. The book mark keeps me grounded by reminding me of what good reading is all about. The pen is symbolic of my duty. The pen is mightier than the sword after all. The Starbucks napkin and cup sleeve remind to keep it real. The four elements are personal. You’ll just have to trust that they mean things to me.
Just knowing that I honor the goddess with this altar is enough information. I seek to maintain my creative inspiration and that I am vibrating at a level where my fiction speaks from a place of love.
