All Nordic healing techniques should first begin with Eir. Invoking her is the first step toward recovery. Here’re two methods of healing for which I have called upon her for assistance.
First there are psychological healings. A broken heart for example. First I get the client into a comfortable position laying down. Next I light incense. Then I pull out my drum. Drumming in a given rhythm I start to invoke her. Saying her name along with the drumming forms a type of light trance. I fall into the trance state and hopefully my client does too. Then the work begins.
Using my third eye vision I explore and examine the Hyde of the client. I’m looking for holes. Dark splotches. Sudden eruptions in the energy field. Now I can start to remedy the imperfections. Using myself as a conduit for the energy of Eir I fill in. I smooth out. I fix stuff. Once things seem complete and whole again I restart my drumming. The drumming serves to help me return to ordinary consciousness. Once fully back in this realm I go over what I’ve accomplished with the client. Then I give them a runic amulet or some stone for them to use as a focusing device. I instruct them to spend some time every day with the object in meditation. That’s about all there really is to it!
Physical ailments can be addressed through the use of herbs. Every Vitki should have some solid knowledge of the use of herbs. Getting to know them will give you a good idea of dried herbs to have on hand. Crushing them together in a mortar and pestle gets them ready to give to the client. I pray to Eir over the mixture so that they have the desired affect. Of course you shouldn’t dispense or prescribe any herb until you have a solid training in their uses. To do otherwise is reckless.
There is scant little information about Eir in the lore. About all we know is that she was the doctor to the gods. All I know is that no healing work I undertake is complete without her aid.
