An eclipse experience

I had been looking forward to the solar eclipse for over a month. My excitement grew each day in anticipation. I was planning a big ritual for it. I was going to use this event and it’s energy to rededicate myself to the vitki path.

Yesterday finally arrived. I got myself and my ritual tools ready. The time came. Here goes!

I lit incense. I  centered and grounded myself. I stood at my altar arms raised. I started to feel the energy growing. I called upon the Aesir and Vanner to hear my oath. I could suddenly feel a charge of electricity as I called them. With the assembled gods in my presence I made my oath. I oathed to continue on the path of the vitki. I asked for their guidance in this matter. I offered myself to do the work for my tribe. I made a vow to be available to those in need.

Then I stood quietly letting my words and my oaths reverberate through me. I let myself stay quiet as the darkness of the eclipse descended. I closed my eyes. As I stood there letting it all sink in I had a vision. It was a tree. A tree with three huge roots. I knew instinctively it was Yggdrasil. As I stood there gazing at it it started to grow. Rapidly. I started to grow as well. Within moments we were too large for my building and we burst through the walls and roof. Still we grew. Up and down and every direction we could. Soon we were sky and earth. We were the elements of the multiverse. We were everything. Then I was snapped back into ordinary consciousness.

I finished my ritual thanking the gods for the message. I believe the message was that I am to grow in this path. Grow beyond my expectations. Grow in every aspect of a Vitki. May it be so!
