Heather Freysdottir, blogger and acquisitions editor of Burning Heart Press, and Seren Lebannen, blogger at Bonfire at Midnight discuss their experiences with godspousery, a form of mysticism and devotional relationships. Their discussion is within a modern Pagan context, but there are monotheistic examples in the form of  St. Teresa of Avila and Blessed Bernardo Francisco de Hoyos y de Seña, and there are also examples across varying classical polytheisms, including Zeus and Ganymede, Meera Bai and Krishna, and Freyr's mortal bride mentioned in the Ögmundar þáttr dytts.
