HOW DO YOU PEOPLE HAVE THESE PERSONAL CONNECTIONS TO THE GODS?! WHAT AM I DOING WRONG???!!!!!
There are a couple things to address with this.
First is that you may not be doing anything wrong. Developing these connections takes time, and some people are more adept at it than others. Placing blame on yourself probably isn’t going to help you, and I’ve found that the more your beat yourself up over it, or stress out over it, the less progress you’ll make. So the first order of business would probably be to calm down a bit. idk if your caps are for dramatic effect or because you’re really stressed over it, but I can assure you that not being stressed will help you more in the long run.
Second is that “how” usually comes from a lot of work and time and patience and trial and error. It took me years to be able to communicate clearly with the Unseen. And even though my “god phone” is pretty clear and works pretty well, I still have large periods where it doesn’t work at all, things are hazy and stuff straight up doesn’t connect.
Third- communication with the Unseen is not straightforward. Whatever you assume its like, its probably not like because the Unseen usually shits on everyone’s expectations. So I’d recommend throwing those out the window because it’ll save you hell in the long run. I find that half the reason a lot of people can’t communicate is because they assume it’s going to be a certain way and it’s really not. If you think it will be clear, concise, or plainly written out where you can see it- I can tell you that you will be disappointed, even after you do manage to communicate or connect.
Communication is usually garbled. It’s subtle. It’s coincidence and happenstance and “is that song aimed at me or am I making connections that aren’t there”. It’s “does that entity actually want this, or am I projecting my desires onto them?” It’s “wow I’ve seen that animal 349385 times today, is it a sign or am I just paying closer attention than normal?”
And even if you get clear communication, you’ll still likely question it. We all do. It’s part of the package.
I would recommend flipping through the big list of communication posts, and see what you can glean from them for ideas that you can try out on your own. Make sure you give it lotsssssssssssssssss of time, though. Anything less than a year of consistent effort, and you’ve not waited long enough (imo). I’d also advise you to try and find multiple ways to connect with your deity, and to focus on building the relationship, even if the communication isn’t very clear. The more you learn about your god, and the more time you try and spend around them, the easier it will be to pick up on whatever methods they use to reach out to you.
