About my altar

So my altar is pretty full as you can see from the picture I added here. It’s definitely evolved over time to the place it is today. I’m sure it will continue to evolve as I evolve in my spirituality. But for now…

The first thing most people notice are the statues. I was given most of them by my hubby for my 40th birthday twelve years ago. They came from Sacred Source if you’re interested in acquiring some of them for yourself. That group includes (left to right) Freyja, Tyr, Odin, Baldur, Thor, Frey, a Valkurie, and the Willendorf (not from the Norse pantheon but I needed more feminine energies!).  The wooden one next to Freyja is Hela. That’s the group of gods I honor most frequently.

The plants are for my work with the green wights. I “was told” in a seidr session to work with them. Not having a green thumb makes it a challenge but I haven’t killed them yet!  The candle holders were made for me by my late father. The box in the center is amazing. It has a galderstaf for journeying on the lid. It has another one on the inside lid for assistance in runic studies. Also inside are the names Odin and Freyja in runes. On the back is my magic name Ondsvin also in runes. A very cool box!

Of course there’s a drinking horn!  Some crystals and candles complete the top of the altar.

Below are spaces for my gands, my drums, incense, rune sets, extra candles and of course books!

 

The banner hanging on the wall shows a man looking up at the sky at Odin’s two ravens. That was a thoughtful gift from my daughter.

Everything I need is all right there in one place. Very important to me when I’m doing my workings.

It took me twelve years to get to this point. I’m pretty well satisfied with it. For now!
