This morning I met Odin in the shower. Yes, it was a surprise to me too…though, perhaps it shouldn’t have been.
Each morning I light incense for the Gods and toss out a Hail to everyone and all of the positive energy carriers in the universe some days…it varies. Then I jump into the shower. I did the same thing this morning. Halfway through my morning ablutions, after I had grounded and centered myself I got pulled…partially out. I was still feeling things in Mundania and generally going about my day, but interacting in a way I had only ever interacted with Loki before. I suppose for all intents and purposes the Godphone got a jolt, even though I don’t generally like referring to it as the “godphone”.
I got the sense of an older man, in his late 60’s or early 70’s dressed in a non-descript grey traveling outfit-very old, old, OLD world. He had a grey cloak and grey pants and everything about him gave off the same vibe as a good “notice-me-not” spell or someone trying to blend in. Only, he wanted me to notice him. He looked a bit grizzled with a long grey beard and a large, wide brimmed hat was pulled down low over part of his face.
Me: “You’re not Loki.”
Mystery Man: “Do I remind you of Yaweh like this?” (Genuinely curious.)
Me: “Ummm…More like Gandalf.”
Mystery Man: (A dry chuckle) “Try again.”
Mystery Man: “I’m Odin.” (In a wry sounding voice.)
Me: “Oh. Okay. Nice to meet you. Naked in my shower. Not that shower time isn’t cool and all…but…why are you in my shower?”
Odin: “I like to keep an eye on Loki’s projects, especially the ones he cares about a great deal.” (Smug grin, then poof.)
Me: (Alone, to myself.) “I’m a project?”
…Not really how I envisioned meeting The All Father.
…and I’m not sure how I feel about being a project.
Me: 10 hours later…
“OH-keep AN EYE on his projects. HA! Apparently Odin does puns!”
