Was it just a dream? Perhaps I am deluded...
Hello, I am new to this site, this is my first posting. This may not be the proper forum for my question, but I will ask it anyway. If it is the wrong place, please let me know and I will correct it in the future.
I want to know if you all will share with me your knowledge of Asherah.
I want to explain why I am seeking. I never did fit into the xtian mold. When I was young I turned away from it, intuitively knowing that the three major religions really were bunk. I began by studying runes and Asatru and also the Celtic movements. I have been for lack of a better term, a solitary practitioner, sort of searching out my own path. I was ill for many years, and static. I was diagnosed with a pituitary tumor, and not long after the resection of it, I had a very unusual dream. In it, I was talking to a beautiful woman, but for some reason we were interrupted, and I was being pulled away from her, and I was wanting to stay a dasking her name. She was saying to me, "Ashara, Ashara!" I was startled awake by almost the feeling of breath in my ear as if someone were in the room with me and I actually sat up in bed. I'm a very calm sleeper and the dream disturbed me for a long time.
I have been confused, by the many names and different deities that this name could've possibly been tied to. It is now my belief that what I thought was, Ashara, or Ishara, was actually, Asherah.
I'm confused by this, why I would have this very startling dream, which pulled me down a completely different path of study, when I have never before been drawn to this pantheon and which from everything I have read so far ties her to Yahweh. Although I suspect she was co-opted by the Hebrews, and was probably older than that
I appreciate any responses, and please be kind, I am new. :)
