Being a Vitki is cool. Way cool. In all kinds of ways. I’m feeling a bit of that cool vibe myself today. So I thought I’d share a few of my perceptions on this matter. So here goes. And forgive me if I come off too big for my britches. But being a Vitki is cool because…
You get to communicate with the gods. Both through the runes and seidr work you gain relationships with the deities. And if you work on it strong relationships. They are the kind of relationships that just keep growing. The more you put in the more you get out. Just like relationships on this plane of existence. But with these relationships you can instantly gain knowledge and wisdom. And a lot of clarity on life issues. Just like a trusted friend the gods are always there when you need them most. And they have lots of tidbits of big issue insight. Get to know some deities. You’ll find out.
You get to read Runes. Whether for personal information or for others the runes are a great way to get a ball rolling. With experience people will begin to trust you with their personal stuff. And that’s humbling. It keeps you in balance when you know you’re being heard and trusted. Reading the runes is like a great conversation. You never want it to end and the topics never dry up. You get things going and sometimes finish a chapter with a good rune reading.
You get to be creative. Being a good Vitki means always being open to change. That keeps you on your toes and thinking and acting creatively. Whether it be coming up with new magical applications for your tools or a new layout for rune casting your mind needs to stay open and flexible. Being creative is the key. The possibilities are endless for a good Vitki.
You get to create change in the multiverse. Many is the time I’ve caused or been a part of something happening through magical workings. For example using a bind rune last January I asked for spiritual growth. This year I started the Vitki/Volva Forum. I started this blog. I took on new apprentices. I discovered a concurrent spiritual path to follow in Druidry. All this year alone! And I truly believe that it all was due to the energy I sent out through that simple bind rune. Big changes with just one small act.
Those are several of the ways being a Vitki is cool. There are many more. All you need to do is seriously explore this path. Then you can be cool too!
