I did my first ritual to Apollo yesterday night….yes, I shall go by this name since this is the most familiar to me, and it was quite a strange event/result.
I started with my normal pre-ritual routine and everything felt normal.
Then I started the rite while focusing on his symbol with my mind and I took in alot of things; energy from the ritual was pleasant, not like a lighting bolt but a gentle afternoon sun.
I went to the 2nd part of the rite and I kept being distracted by this “bug” that came out of nowhere, then after trying to get rid of it – “it” finally disappeared – don’t know what that meant…
I then re-started where I left off on the rite and I was bombarded by a vision of some sort of monster, I felt very antagonistic and animalistic towards it – like i met a rival or an enemy I had to take out no matter what.
Once that sensation disappeared and the vision was gone, the energy sensation I felt before came back and eventually, I fell asleep.
For the most part, I felt the ritual was a success and the connection towards Apollo was instantaneous.
After doing some research on this entity/deity; I finally felt like I found an entity I can relate to, which is kinda funny since Solar entities has tried to reach out to me before (i.e: Solar Olympic Spirit). I am hoping to integrate his energies towards my practice and hopefully achieve a certain level of rapport.
This might be the first step to a different path!
I think I mentioned before that while I work well with angelic/demonic entities, I never felt comfortable working with them. Maybe it was due to my religious upbringing and my rebellious clash against the powers that be, maybe I am just more fond of Greek deities because of how I was exposed to them in my childhood.
*FUN FACT* One of the first books I read was about the Illiad.
Overall, it looks like interesting times are coming……
