Deities need to be respected in their own spaces. Failure to do so may result in consequences such as painful electric shocks from a goblet of sacramental wine.
*laughs* I remember when I was a young teen witch and a rock on my altar actually exploded sending shrapnel throughout my room. I learned better after that.
Yeah, best not to poke at the hornet’s nest; some Deities can really hold a grudge. You doze off once during chants, never hear the end of it….
Once I tried to offer Inari-Okami a glass of ginger ale that contained ZERO natural ingredients (not even ginger lol) but I thought She wouldn’t mind, even though I got a bad feeling about giving it to Her… The glass slipped out of my hands and shattered on the kitchen floor before I could even pour the drink. Only natural things from now on, I learnt!
