Mirrors & Spheres

A couple of years back, I had been working with various entities, and I called up one, and She gave me a sigil, symbol, pictograph.

I have learned that many Feri initiates considered the Guardians initiatory knowledge, lore only to be shared […] … Continue reading…The Guardians: Part One
