I always thought that “magical” names were stupid. Silly. Childish. I mean, what’s so wrong with your given name? Why come up with a special name just for magical purposes? It just seemed ridiculous to me.
I started asking some friends who had magical names to explain them to me. Most said they really didn’t know why they chose a special name for magic uses. To them it was just something you did. Not a good enough reason for me.
Then I asked one more person. She said some things that finally made some sense to me. She asked me if I believed words have power. Yes I do. Using that logic, wouldn’t it make sense that the word we use to identity ourselves would also have power? I suppose so. So why not pack as much power into the name we use for ourselves?
Finally I was understanding what all the uproar was about. I decided to do a trance session to find out whether or not this idea would work for me.
I expected nothing of relevance. I figured it would just be a nice quiet trance session to rest during. I settled myself into trance. And then things started to happen.
I saw in flaming runes a word. Ondsvin. That was it! I had a vitki name. I liked it.
As I researched my revelation I started to see how this name made perfect sense for me. Ond is the all-pervasive force of the energies of the universe. The charged air of all that is. Vin means friend of. So I am a friend of the energies of the multiverse. Pretty cool. I certainly wouldn’t have come up with it consciously.
So now I use my vitki name in performing all my rituals. I also use it for runic energy workings. I find it empowering. It lends a certain gravity to the proceedings of my spiritual life. I now encourage you all to discover your own personal vitki name.
