Alchemy

Alchemy. The act of turning lead into gold. Magic indeed. But what does this mean for the Vitki?

Turning a base material into something precious is truly the heart of all Vitki work. As Vitkis I t falls upon us to be ever mindful of this task. We are the ones who through our work create transformation. Transformation of Self. Transformation of others. Whether it be through insights of a rune casting or a full blown seidr session  we are in the business of bringing about change. Transformation.

These transformations may take time. Or they may occur in a sudden blast of insight. How they occur matters less than the fact that they do indeed occur. I’ve seen it for myself. Whether in my personal life or on the lives of my apprentices changes occur. And once the transformation is complete there’s no turning back. You can only move forward. Forward to the next transformation.

That’s one of the funny things about this alchemy. It always leads to more alchemy. It’s a never ending spiral of growth. We can think we’re done. That we’ve achieved all there is to know. And suddenly a little light will flicker. A light leading us on to the next series of changes. The possibilities are endless. We can always learn and grow and change. We are continuously in a state of performing alchemy. If we’re doing the true work of a Vitki.

So I would challenge you to this task. The task of alchemy. Where and when can you change and transform into something greater? Something purer? More refined?  I say the time is now. The place is right there where you are. It’s the best time and place for magic. For alchemy.
