How has your relationship with this deity changed over time?
Oh my relationship has changed greatly. Odin is no longer a deity that is just kinda there and I kinda sorta pay homage to him. Odin is the one I turn my thoughts to and the one I put most of my energy out to. He watches over me in his way, making sure that I know he listens and that he sees me through the sighting of his birds.
I am nothing like a 'god phone' or one of those people who has constant contact with their deity. I've read posts by others who see deities constantly, have those long conversations, and so much more. I am not fit to be a godspouse (I am honestly a little frightened by the idea, I love my Grendal).
I have opened up communication with Odin through my thoughts and offerings. I think shedding the neediness that I had and the constant want of validation has helped. I have grown in my relationship and it is for the better.
