My friend Heather Awen has been making shrines and some prayer beads for her beloved Deities. What makes this all the more special is that she has Lyme disease and Multiple Chemical Sensitivity. This means she is severely limited not only in energy and health, but also in the materials she can use. As you can see, from this and her other posts, she has found various ingenious ways to create shrines and prayer beads that she can use and enjoy seeing daily.

Spotted this while rummaging through the yard of an antiques centre today.
Sometimes I feed my worries, negativity and confidence issues to Ammit. She seems to deem them a suitable enough offering and consumes them for me. She is usually friendly; there is a familiarity between us. She told me not so long ago that a lot of people don’t approach her through fear, or they don’t deem her approachable or worthy of worship.
Ammit deserves to be honoured, and has a place in the modern world. She is the ‘sin-eater’ for the modern generation. She will devour the fear, negativity and loathing we keep in our hearts, just as she devoured the hearts deemed unworthy in Ancient Egypt. All our issues of self-esteem can build up, all those knock-backs and self-doubts chip away at who we are. She will take them into her.
In giving our negativity and the fear we harbour to Ammit our own hearts can be somewhat lightened, and we incorporate her into our lives in a positive, proactive way. Then we have no reason to fear her, but to embrace, honour and love her. Ammit is our ally.
Today I’m introducing Samantha J Chilton. She is an artist living in the UK. She does paintings and makes mini statues, including Norse Deities. Her Odin Allfather piece is a limited edition of 30, so if you want him you’d better not leave it too long to order.
She has an Etsy shop and an ebay shop.
