Freya

In doing some research about grief and loss of both death and loss of relationship, someone suggested Freya.  This resonated for various reasons but I have little experience with Freya.  Has anyone else bloted to Freya for this purpose and have any advice?

No, but I wpuld be interested to hear further on this topic. Sorry I can't be more helpful than that at present.

This situation is one of the loss of a significant relationship and someone pointed out to me that that IS grieving. In talking, someone pointed out Freya based on the logic of Odr, her husband, being away for lengths of time.

I have honored Freya twice before but for things closest to fertility.

I will try to post about what I do.

While I have little if any experience with Freya, I have experience with losing someone that I had loved romantically. I have had my heart broken.

I was thinking too, what about Frigga, Odin's wife? Didn't she grieve when he was out looking for wisdom? Then she got fed up with waiting for him to come home and she got with some other men?

Not sure if that's helpful or not. But that's what I remember of the stories. :P

I plan to honor Frigga for related reasons in a different way later. That also fits. Thank you.

One story I have heard was that Freyja fell in love with Od(Odin in disguise, perhaps) and when he disappeared/was killed- Freyja wandered the earth and her tears became gold and amber on the earth, and pearls in the ocean.

I've been very associated with Freyja, and Odin- and since both(Freyja is leader of the Valkyrie according to some mythos) are associated with death- and magic-

Thank you. I am currently looking at three blots over time for various reasons but will repost here as things progress.
