As this has progressed, I’ve noticed that Helios isn’t just the shining sun blinding my eyes, burning my skin (sometimes), and being annoying in the mornings when I want to sleep in. He’s become more…involved…as the rituals have gone on. I’ve started noticing a presence listening when I was doing the “prayers” , even when I wasn’t calling him forth (with the same intent) beforehand, like one would with a petition. As this has gone on, I’ve felt him (androgynous) more.
Lately, I’ve been thinking of targeting a specific POS that would drug people and… That behavior, free of consequences, doesn’t fly with me. For some reason, I felt I should “sit” on it, despite having entities available to task it to. After some time my fire was still up, but I wasn’t feeling any particular pull from a specific entity or two to task it to and felt I should delay a little longer (which really isn’t my style when guilt isn’t in question).
Finally, I (literally) felt Helios’ rays come to me, despite being done with the day’s rituals long before.
H: “A (worthwhile) target”
M: “It is. (I already knew he was interested). What do you require (offering-wise?)?”
H: “That you continue.”
(Of course I will continue, but a seven month process for whacking an asshat once or twice upside the head a few dozen times is asking a lot, given I could ask other entities)
H: “No, continue (with your path, this was separate, but added into the conversation). For that task, (I desire that you) sing and speak to me honestly. Tell me you desire, call me by the names, speak to me plainly.”
So I went outside after making and eating dinner. The sun was still low in the sky, but even if it hadn’t been, Helios was there and listening. Most of the conversation wasn’t relevant to this task, as I was given some understanding as to why I was on this path.
But it turn back towards the task. I stated in plain language the case I was making. A lot was said. Most relevant was the task at hand, the “justification”, and how I felt I should approach him towards it. I stated how I wanted the perpetrator to suffer, the type of suffering I wanted to see, and, true to myself, I made the condition that no children would be harmed or traumatized because of this request (that other mechanisms should be found, in place of that).
I also make it clear that I would act on my own if it wasn’t handled, but, with conversation, I was persuaded that things would be met. This type of thing was part of why I made the above post about doing other things that may cause issues. There are a few other scenarios, but this was the main one.
So, in appreciation, I blooded some incense, dedicated it to Helios, lit it, and went back inside. Now it’s time to let the Sun scorch who it will.
