Wheels of might. The Nordic chakra system. I’ve been dying to know if such a thing existed. Apparently Runic John was inspired with such a system. Here’s a brief run down of what I’ve learned.
Having some exposure to the chakra system of 7 wheels I was surprised this Nordic system only had five. But that’s all he wrote.
The first hweol is the foot wheel. It is located just below your feet. It’s color is brown. It oversees your physical body and vitality. The rune is uruz.
The hype hweol is at your groin or hips. The color is blue-green. It governs creativity and sexuality. The rune is othala.
The Midgard hweol is at your navel. The color is a swirling rainbow. It governs the conscious mind and ego. Isa is the runic affiliation.
Next is the heorte hweol located at the center of you chest. The color is red. It looks after emotions. Ehwaz is the Rune.
Last is the hafela hweol. It is located just above your head. It’s color is white. It is in control of the growth of consciousness. The rune is Ansuz.
There’s more of course but I just wanted to give a brief introduction to this school of thought. I admit I was a bit skeptical of this. But I figured I’d give it a try. I’ve worked with it for several days. It’s growing on me. The Book of Seidr gives exercises to work on. I admit they’re pretty powerful. But don’t take my word for it. Use this system to create your own meditations and exercises. That’s what being a vitki is all about — creating!
