Based in the very small demographic of the universe that is my apprentices seidr is extremely popular. Compared to the Runes more people want to study seidr. Why? What makes seidr so popular? And why would people turn to me to learn it?
First of all it’s what seidr does. Seidr opens up the multiverse for you. Suddenly with a lot of practice you’re able to travel to different realms. The Nine Realms in particular. There is a whole vast network of information to be had in these Realms. Everything from wisdom of your ancestors to direct communication with the gods seidr has you covered. All of that wisdom there for the taking. It’s a powerful enough urge in most folk to get them on the track of practicing seidr. That alone could explain the popularity of Seidr. But there’s more!
Through seidr you get a chance to discover things about yourself. Things you might never have imagined before. There’s quite a bit of joy when a totally concrete thinker suddenly opens up to things beyond or even in themselves. And that realization that you can encounter archetypes and gods within yourself brings some people. You can uncover much knowledge about yourself through Seidr practice. Like I never realized how mentally strong I was before taking up Seidr. It was through the vigorous practice of mental exercises that I discovered my mental prowess. I thought I was mentally weak. Not so! I was able to get through exercise after exercise with a little gumption and a lot of sticktoitiveness. Mental strength was shown to me.
Being able to see most likely outcomes of situations is another big draw. Like the runes Seidr gives us a glimpse into what may most likely occur. This gives us a chance to choose wisely to make the foreseen future occur or avoid it entirely. This hint at choices gives a sense of power over our fate. This is a great feeling. One that again draws people to study it.
Those are a couple of reasons I’ve come up with to explain this trend. Add to that the chance to serve your tribe is it any wonder it’s so popular? Keep studying and keep coming up with reasons to learn all about seidr!
