“Both the Völva and Vitki, as skilled Seið practitioners, are mentioned in a singular galdr with Jötuns: Iotnar allar fra Aurgelmir komnir. Jötuns all from Aurgelmir come. What participation, if any, does Seið have with Jötunic energy or origins? In our beginnings, in our origin lore: There was Ginnunga-gap, the Great Screaming Void, and from…

Lineage is best to reveal the road a man should go towards – and understand the greatness of his mind. Better good fortune and esteem in an unknown place – than a man should be wretched. Lineage is best to reveal the road a man should go towards – and understand the greatness of his…

You are aware of only one unrest; Oh, never learn to know the other! Two souls, alas, are dwelling in my breast, And one is striving to forsake its brother. Unto the world in grossly loving zest, With clinging tendrils, one adheres; The other rises forcibly in quest Of rarefied ancestral spheres. If there be…

Hail Day! Hail Day’s Sons! Hail Night, and Her Daughters! Look upon us with kindred eyes, And grant us Might all our long years! -modified to create galdr, by V.

Yet another reason why Seidr is no longer upheld among Heathens today .. In Western fairy tales, legends, and myths, the sorcerer is predominantly associated with the dark side of magic. Similarly, in uprooted tribal cultures that have lost the wisdom of tradition and their conection to the natural cosmos, black magic takes the upper…

Under all circumstances the Folk Mother must take care that her children, that is, Frya’s folk, shall remain as frithful as possible. This is her most important duty, and it is the duty of all of us to help her in performing it. –Oera Linda Book 6:18 ~ ~ ~ Would You Know More, And…

The exhortations of madness in magic are centuries old and well-founded. I have concluded that ‘abnormal behavior’ leans more towards blessing than bane. To step aside from societal norms has become passe, and on occasion, displays of indifference are ways to avoid engagement rather than true disassociation, but to genuinely forego accepted reality, is rare….

I have long pointed out that Heathenry is not a religion; and as with all revolutionary ideas, this perspective has been met with opposition.  In that most Americans are raised in a Judao-Christian society, embracing a tribal or folk concept is genuinely alien, so understandable.  All the more reason when deciding to forego religion for…

“By and large, magic, or specifically, Seiðr was the realm of women, in several capacities. Some women did magic solely to benefit themselves or other women, while others did so to benefit their brothers, fathers, lovers or husbands. In many examples, these magic-women assist or hinder the hero by bolstering their strength or endowing them…

Ancestor Worship is an idea based on the belief that deceased family members have a continued existence, take an interest in the affairs of their family’s life, and are able to influence family members. These practices are not to be confused with the ritual significance of dying and death found in other world cultures. The…
