Re: Strophalos of Hecaté or Hekate's Wheel

As with all things Heketean, I would say that this thread both applies and doesn't do so, as we're working to define an abstract through its periphery. While that is, at times, less immediately fulfilling than jumping straight to the heart of any one matter, it can sometimes be necessary. Particula...

Re: Hekate & Her Mysteries

Thank you for sharing that with me here, Monsnoleedra. I can see why that would provide a stark contrast, as it reminds me of what I experienced when looking at the world through the perceptions of an individual in a coma. What they experienced was so very much like that, with interspersed dream st...

Re: Hekate & Her Mysteries

Got my curiosity up about Thurse so had to go look it up. Figure your using it in it's Giant definition most likely. Though it has a lessor definition of "goblin / Kobold / Elf" when it has more of a Nordic (Norwegian) influence. Both of those usages would fit with the earthly type of land...

Re: Hekate & Her Mysteries

I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on this. Though I'd pull this up here to the top. This is in reference to shamanic death and such. I once inquired if there was anything worse than death and got an answer to that actually. As I stated elsewhere I had died in my youth and had vague memories o...

Re: Strophalos of Hecaté or Hekate's Wheel

I was reflecting here a bit about whether this thread was still actually pertaining to the strophalos or not. Yet perhaps it's more along the lines of her wheel than we realize for we've certainly rolled across more things and brought more things into the discussion only to move onto other things. Y...

Re: Hekate & Her Mysteries

Shift away. Doing so fits with Hekate anyhow. There are times I think she purposely does that to make us shift our though process. I find at times I'll read something then it's like I have to go back and change the order I've read it in to appease her to make it make sense. Ah, I got you now. You'r...

Re: Hekate & Her Mysteries

I've heard that belief before, and the one who told me about it had said that he learned it in Turkey. I don't feel the same way or practice this, but the friend I heard this from was very sincere in his practice and I left him to it. It never resonated with me, but I do tend to have a notable affi...

Re: Strophalos of Hecaté or Hekate's Wheel

I concur, monsnoleedra, though I've found myself wondering how much of that is directly caused by Hekate's manifestations and insights within our respective worlds. She's been strongly present for me and pushing me to explore other avenues of magical practice as a means of coming to understand the ...

Re: Strophalos of Hecaté or Hekate's Wheel

Here's a short video of a Hekate's Wheel that has been reproduced as an actual wind chime type set-up. It's not very animated due to the heavy metal that was used and I think due to the way it is strung together. But it does give some hint to what the thing might be like if it was actually strung to...

Re: Strophalos of Hecaté or Hekate's Wheel

Excellent post, monsnoleedra and I've experienced the same. There are points at which that raw observance IS the lesson, too, which can be a little maddening. She's one of those beings that seems to love forcing a change in the way we perceive the universe around us and plays tricks with the light....
