Something interesting happened  to me that I thought I’d share. It’s about how I experience the trance state for my Seidr sessions. Everyone’s experience in this regard are different. So I figured I’d let you know how it goes for me.

I was taking a nap. No big whoop. But as I awoke from the sleep stare I stayed in that zone between sleep and awake. The Twilight Zone. It’s the state where I’m consciously aware of what is going on in the ordinary consciousness world but still somewhat detached from it all. Never one to miss an opportunity I decided to add an intention to my state of being to journey. So I made my intention to travel to Hella to speak with my father. I hadn’t done that for a while. So off I went to Hel.

I threw the dog some meat as an offering and called for Hella. She appeared and I made my request to speak with my father. Soon my father appeared. I asked him for wisdom for my current life. He told me to do my thing. Be a Vitki. There is a need for me to be doing this work. So his message was to keep at it. I told him thanks and left that realm behind.

The way I experience a trance state is I know I’m in a trance when I feel or sense a shift in my consciousness. It’s a subtle shift. Just like slight buzzing of energy. I sense this buzzing energy and ride that into trance. It’s an easy transition for me after years of doing this. But it certainly wasn’t easy when I started!  I had to find a way to draw that sensation to me. For me it was a combination of controlled breathing and drumming that did the trick. Most of my apprentices have success with just the breathing. But everyone needs to discover what works best for them. Experimenting is all part of being a Vitki!  Trying out different techniques is part of the fun. Keep experimenting till you find what works for you. Perseverance will pay off.

Or you could just take a nap..,
