|Of the many Names....

So, I've been thinking a bit lately about how I relate to the Aesir at this stage of my life (largely how I relate to the goddesses, since I guess I am not your typical female heathen--if there is such a thing!). One thing that has not changed--and I find this very comforting--is how I relate to Odhinn. To me He is still the father I never had, the wisest of teachers, and the Giver of Clue-by-Four Smackings. :) He is also Grimnir, and my work with Him and Hel has cured me of my death-phobia. As an artist and mystic, I can't forget those aspects; as a librarian, I honor Him as a seeker and keeper of knowledge...I guess I see Him best as Svipal. As I find myself changing a lot in the search for authenticity, I have taken the name Svipalsdottir to reflect this.|
So, anyway, the point to my rambling is this: what aspects of Him do you relate to best? Do you find that this changes, the longer you follow Him?
