That's a good question. I've often wondered who has given me favor in life.
I don't automatically assume divine intervention in most cases.
Ancestors and land spirits are closer and take a more active interest in daily goings on.
This twerked my interest, gratitude is one of my central beliefs.
I like to slant my thinking that way, finding the cup with anything in it and call it good!
So, it seems in my life to follow that the more grateful I am the more of my needs are met without angst of uphill struggles.
I don't know any direct benefactor for my good fortunes; still, something's afoot.
I whisper my thanks whenever the wind picks up ~ with a request that those winds carry that for me, to where it needs to go.
"So, it seems in my life to follow that the more grateful I am the more of my needs are met without angst of uphill struggles."
I can relate to this.
Took me many miles of stone kicking roads to get that far Enigma!
I'd like the rest to be on soft green side of the mountain, grading easy into the valley.
It is said the "Voice of the Winds" is the voice of Faery...
We call it Voex Woinds , in my Tradition...;)
R. Hewitt , you can do a general gratitude blessing...
( some deities , or Faery , do not like to be "thanked" ,
yet appreciate a co - working oath , for the betterment
of yourself , and the world around you )...;)
On the other hand , if one chose the path of chaos magic ,
I would choose two "Deities" , to give gratitude to , in your
1. The Great One of Armchair Travelers
( the one who watches out for all during their journeys )
2. The Great Vulture God , The Spud Buzzard
( he who replaces , and recycles , old furniture , so one
may attain , or continue to keep the title of couch potato )
Just a thought , for the cosmic data bank !
Where exactly did your gods intervene in this transaction? Thank the guy that listed the chair for half price. Are 'the gods' also responsible for your couch breaking?
If you feel somebody sent the chair your way, why dont you simply try a general thanks prayer and trust the being will hear it
