Balancing act

About a year ago it dawned on me that my spiritual practices were way outta whack. I was relying almost exclusively on masculine energy — in studying the runes (which I had considered to be an analytical pursuit) — and woefully lacking in feminine energies. About that time my mind turned to seidr for a reason beyond me. So I started reading up on that. I decided to incorporate more feminine energy on my altar.   I decided to include goddesses and disir in my blots. Basically give feminine energies a place in my life.

At first it was rough going. After 20 years of studying the runes switching gears to seidr was hard!  I guess everything had become wired a certain way and it had to be redone from scratch. But I was determined. So I kept at it. Every day I would devote time not to just the runes but also seidr.

After a couple of months I started to see results. I was going into trance easier.  The quality of my meditations increased. I thought to focus my attention on Freyja since she is the queen bee of seidr. Suddenly I was getting images and visions during trance. I was finding myself more balanced in my daily life (not easy for someone with MS LOL).  My relationships became richer and deeper. All the aspects of my life seemed to be touched.

As I’ve been doing this new balancing act for awhile I can say the overall results are amazing!  Simply by switching my focus a bit to be more inclusive I have reaped rewards I never thought possible. Including feminine deities into my spiritual practices. Studying seidr. Even my rune studies have become more reliant on intuition. Everything is seen through new glasses. I can’t wait to find out what happens next!

One thought on “Balancing act”

  1. Thank you so much for posting this! The “balanced femininity dance” has been more like a tightrope walk for me, and I really wasn’t at all sure *why*, given my situation. I am, unfortunately, also one of those people who constantly *overthink* and *overcomplicate* things–to the point that I can frequently *feel* Freyja rolling Her eyes at me. lol I read this post, got to that last paragraph, and literally had a Captain Picard-style facepalm moment when I settled on the word intuition: ah, that most feminine of gifts, and here I am, the Great Second-Guesser Of Mine! Sounds like I need to work on *not* doing that anymore! 😉
