Hi, I've been having issues with my practice. Almost two years ago, I had a very strong connection to Loki, Sigyn and Hel, and things were going wonderfully. Then I met a few older practitioners that, at first, really inspired me. They seemed to know what they were doing and taught me quite a bit, before they broke my spirit. After that, I left my practice behind for over a year. Now that I've come to terms with it, I want to get back into it but I can't seem to have a connection anymore. Help?
I think it might just be a matter of patience and time, I’m not sure if I have any other suggestions, really. I would say that it’s possible that past trauma in that area could potentially act as a block, you said you’ve come to terms with it though, so it depends on if you feel that’s a possibility that could hold some weight.
Otherwise all I can think of is that you need time to get back into the groove of things; for myself i would say meditation would be the best way to speed that up – specifically focusing on what you remember of them and the feeling of connectedness to them. Doing any acts that you associate with them might also help relight the path a bit faster. And the last thing I can think of is trance, however you personally might be able to achieve that (for me sustained pain can work, so can firegazing, and a few other things too)
I hope you can find the connection again soon,
