What’s the big deal about seidr anyway?

Seidr is a big deal for me as a Vitki.   After rune work it comprises a large portion of the work I do. My apprentices are mad about it. Why?  Probably because of all the cool things you can accomplish through seidr. Like what?

Direct connection with the gods. If you want to have a chat with an entity in another realm seidr is your ticket. Building relationships with the gods should be a primary goal for a Vitki. That way you can count on them to assist you when things get a bit sticky. Many is the time a particularly thorny issue has been brought to me for resolution or clarity. My relationships with the gods has definitely helped me wade through. I may not have close relationships with all of the gods but I am on a first name basis with many. And their assistance can prove invaluable.

Talking to departed ones. By using seidr to travel to visit Hella and gain the opportunity to talk with the dead you can gain very interesting insights and perspectives on issues that may be troubling you. Or just get road signs to help you find your way. For example in one seidr session my father came and uttered one word to be that snapped me bolt upright into ordinary consciousness. That one word started me on a new spiritual adventure that I am finding immensely powerful. That is just one reason I do seidr. Who knows what the dead will say next?  I want to know!

Clarity and wisdom. Whenever an issue is perplexing us it’s good to go somewhere someone can help. Often I travel to Asgard with the intention of being open to speaking with whatever deity can assist me best. Leaving the gate wide open. Sometimes Odin will amble by. Sometimes it’s Thor bursting in. Whoever shows up I’m sure to get wisdom and guidance. By being open I’m able to get help from whoever is best suited to a situation.

Those are just a couple of ways that doing seidr work is so valuable to me as a Vitki. I’m sure you will find new ways in your practice!

One thought on “What’s the big deal about seidr anyway?”

  1. This makes me wonder if the real reason I can’t find the interest to learn seidr no matter how hard I try is because I’m clairaudient enough I can communicate with the gods extremely well on this plane of existence.
