The most popular form of Theism in our world today
seems to be Monotheism.
Judaism, Christianity and Islam seem to agree (at least on this)
there is “One God”,
but this does not encompass the entirety of religions in our world today.
For those with a broader view of Divinity
I have created the Divine Duality Amulet.
The perception of the divine is an extremely personal thing.
Religion refers to the relationship
with what one perceives as a “higher consciousness”
whether it be a supreme being or a member of a pantheon.
In many Monotheistic religions,
one develops a personal relationship with as “personal God”
or a representative (Angel).
Although this can most certainly be true with Polytheism,
there are many forms that do not respond to a “personal” relationship:
tribute is offered or other forms of acknowledgment.
Among the Polytheists,
one could be Henotheist:
specializing in the worship of one particular deity
where as the Kathenotheists worship different deities
at different occasions:
seasonal or for specific kinds of blessings.
Among the Polytheists we find hard polytheism
views the gods as being distinct and separate beings
such as the Egyptian and Greek Religions
and parts of Hinduism.
Soft polytheism view the gods as being
a part of the greater whole such as forms of Hinduism:
Smartism and Advaita Vedanta.
For the Divine Duality Amulet,
I created a two sided piece,
one side of the God and the other of the Goddess.
For the Feminine Deity her face is prominent
surrounded by her hair emanating out and curling beneath,
hiding her neck in curls.
For the God side his face a partially disguised for his hair and beard.
I have included Stag Horns as one would find with the Older Gods
(horns are usually attributed to the variety of animal their society is dependent on:
the stag for northern European,
the Buffalo for the Native American Planes Tribes).
Having an amulet that includes both the God and the Goddess combined
is helpful to those why are devotees of both The Goddess and the God,
able to offer tribute to both simultaneously.
One may wear the Goddess visible between Beltane and Samhain,
while turning it over between Samhain and Beltane,
thus representing the duel aspects of the seasons.
It may be used as a tool to bring balance within oneself,
pulling together the needed aspects of the Masculine and the Feminine, Light and Shadow, Nurturer and Defender.
