Orders from the Morrigan

A couple of weeks ago I decided to bug the Morrigan and see if she had any wisdom for me. As my thirst for knowledge is unending I figured this was not a surprising quest for me. Little did I know…

So I went to my Grove. That’s always the starting point for any journey for me. Once firmly there I reached out to Llewelyn my Druid spirit guide. I told him my intention. He agreed to summon the Morrigan. Mind you some days he tells me no way. But that day he must have felt like being helpful. So he got the Morrigan to come.

She appeared to me as her white haired self. She asked what I wanted. I told her I was there for any wisdom she could offer me. And in a firm commanding voice she said “Study ogham. All your wisdom can be found there!”  And she wandered off.

Hmmm. Not exactly what I had hoped for. I had a set of ogham sticks and books on the subject. But I had yet to do any serious studying. Oh well. Some day. Thanks Morrigan.

Then just last week after still not studying the ogham I decided to see if the Morrigan was in a better place to offer me real wisdom. Off to my Grove I went. I contacted Llewelyn. He called upon the Morrigan. Once again she appeared as her white haired self. Again I asked her if she had any wisdom to share with me. And in her clear firm voice she said “Study the ogham. That is all the wisdom I will give you!”  Off she went.

Darn. Twice told the same thing. I guess I’d better start studying.

So I’ve been studying the ogham. Somewhat seriously. After all when a deity gives a command not once but twice it’s time to listen. Urgh!
