This update was the Storyteller update. Initially, I thought there wouldn't be anything for me in this theme. I'm not much of a writer, I mostly live in written worlds rather than create them. But I do write for school, the little writing that I do is research oriented. Hopefully, one day I'll be writing about my own research.



With that I hope, I stumbled upon this beauty. Since I was a little girl I've been fascinated by ancient Egypt and their Pharaohs, mythology, religion, and priests. But I've also felt a connection with their scribes. I kind of see myself as a scribe, writing down our history, as an archaeologist. I feel like this completements one of my other glamourkins so beautifully.




I also found this gem. I've come to think of this journal as a Book of Shadows/Mirrors. A place where I keep everything sacred to me. To me, Polyhymnia represents more than just hymns/sacred poetry, She also represents all sacred writings. For a few months now I've been drawn to the idea of veiling. The Veil is Her emblem. I've always dressed modestly and have always leaned more towards conservative clothes/fashion. But I've been wondering why I've been having this strong urge to veil, now I'm starting to think it's Her nudging me. I think, at least to start with, I'll start veiling when doing ritual. I don't do much in terms of ritual, but maybe I'll start carving out more time to at least meditate more. I think veiling while meditating would be such a grounding and lifting experience. I don't know that I'd ever veil in public, but maybe that's not what She's calling me to do. I'll just have to answer Her call and see where it takes me.

This update there was one Glamourkin that I absolutely fell in love with and I decided to get a book glamourkin from a past update that I've been wanting since it was posted up.


When I saw this glamourkin my heart melted. It was as if it was made for me. I love everything about it: the picture and the simplicity of the word and the strength it represents. I've talked about this theme before with a previous purchase.


 

I love these book glamourkins. I actually have quite a few favorited that I'm just bidding my time with. To me these little books are like a Book of Shadows, they hold the most sacred parts of my spirituality within them. This particular one I hold so dear to my heart. It will be a constant reminder that I am sacred, as well as everyone and everything else. Growing up it was engrained in me that as a human, and specifically a woman, I am sinful and base. Since I left Christianity, I've discovered the Divine within myself. I also believe that everything has a soul and should be treated with respect and reverence. So the words as well as the fact that the picture is a plant makes this piece absolutely perfect to me.

ETA: I looked up the Goddess Iris. <33 I knew a little bit about Her, but not much. I have come to love Her so deeply. <3 She will definitely be going into conjunction with Psyche. Simply for this: Iris links the gods to humanity. So having the iris in this glamourkin has given this piece so much more depth for me.
