Nyx, daughter of Khaos, the Primordial one, wrapped in a cloak of stars. She who illuminates deep within the darkness and holds the mirror that shows us who we are. Our hopes, our fears, the very fabric from the cosmos that created each of us. Feared by Gods and men alike, for she is truth in its purest form.
My Work with Nyx
I have sat for many days, pondering. Even I am not immune to things such as self-doubt and impostor syndrome. It is within the moon’s gaze that I have begun to understand that there is still much work to do. So with her I have sat, listening, unraveling, discovering.
It is within this process of discovery that I have had reflected back at me the parts within myself that I really rather don’t like. Perfectionism, procrastination, doubt, that I am diving deep to root out the source and banish it from my life. This time, for good.
Creating the life we are meant to live
There are lessons within all we do and it is through her wisdom that I am learning how to let go. You will shed tears, so many tears. Yet water is cleansing catharsis. There are people who have walked out of my life that I have been grieving for far too long. The time has come to step past that hurt. It is not me that is broken.
Nyx’s stars have shined upon me, always. When one such as she places you in her gaze, it can be overwhelming at first. You want to “live up to” some sort of extraordinary standard that takes root in your mind. While our Divines expect us to live up to our potential, they don’t expect us to just know how to do that at a moment’s notice.
Meeting her in her domain
Working with Nyx is a process and one worthy of doing well, not necessarily quickly. I urge you to stand beneath the crescent moon, the starry sky, and even the sky filled with inky blackness. Hold a moonstone in your hand and just…listen. Breathe and listen. Lose yourself in the twinkling of the stars of her cloak. Her voice is within the shadows and upon the wind. Think about what it is saying to you. The path toward creating a life worthy of you and all you have to offer. Once you know the way, move forward and don’t look back.
