Purpose

My name is Ren Anderson- and I am referred to as “The Lokean”- thanks to my prior blog HERE at http://www.hailloki.wordpress.com. Oddly enough, I am closer to Tyr and the blog was founded as part of an Oath I made to improve the reputation of Loki to Neo-pagans.

In real life, I am not so limited to just those two: work with and honor several deities from several patheons. At the time of this writing I also have altars to Rán, Hera, Eris, Woten, Freyja, Thor, Frey, and oddly enough, Inari. (My husband has altars to equally as many Gods of his own!)

I am legal, multi faith clergy. I graduated from Moravian College, Cum Laude, with degrees in Religion and Philosophy, and served as the Gythia for one of the oldest kindreds in Pennsylvania for the better part of a decade. I live with my husband, Edward, in a small animal sanctuary we created in Exeter, Pennsylvania consisting of four cats, two dogs, and two very large Flemish rabbits.

I donate my time to the pagan and Discordian communities as a crisis/grief chaplain, health permitting. I am not a big fan of weddings, but I will gladly help you with funerals or lending an ear where I can.

The former blog since evolved into a combination of Heathen UPG and fiction combined with a place to vent my spleen when my CPTSD acted up. I stopped updating sometime last year- I felt I had nothing to contribute. To my surprise, I my old blog gained an increased following despite my lack of updates- so here we are. I am honored that people find value in my work, and I am even more gratified to know that what I write occasionally helps people.

The other hat I wear is as a freelance journalist in the medical cannabis community- thanks to the kindness of the Gods and the Pennsylvania medical cannabis community, I have a successful website at http://www.greenbudgazette.com; there I track medical cannabis laws, regulations, price trends and medical advances pertinent to patients in Pennsylvania who rely on cannabis for relief of a number of medical conditions.

The prior Loki blog seemed to have improved my writing skill enough to be taken seriously as a writer- So, in a sense, my life is a fairly good example of how taking a commitment to our Gods seriously has unexpected, positive returns!

Since my conditions are Migraines, PTSD, and chronic pain- my ability to update regularly is severely curtailed- but I do my best. I find that writing in a non-technical capacity therapeutic- however, I only have a limited window of time every three months between my migraine shot treatments where I am able to concentrate fully on a screen and think clearly enough to write.

I thank you in advance for your patience.

Hopefully, by starting this new journal with clearer intentions will be even more useful going forward.

Hailsa-
Ren


(P.S. You can find me online under the screenname Tyrienne in most places. For example, on Reddit I am /u/Tyrienne and I am Tyriennethe Lokean on istagram. I am not on social media much, however.)
