The gods had a plan for me. They made sure that for the last 7 years I’ve been able to dedicate my life to being a Vitki full time. They made sure my MS would prevent me from having a regular job and be able to go on disability so I had all my time to dedicate to being a Vitki.
What does it mean to be a full time Vitki? For me it means most of my days are filled with Vitki stuff. Rune readings, Seidr sessions, sessions guiding my apprentices, writing this blog. Plenty to keep me busy. And I’m thankful to the gods that they keep placing opportunities in my path for me to act on. There never seems to be a dull or empty moment in my days. Every day is filled with spiritual purpose. And I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Of course there’s also the time spent serving my tribe. My circle of tribe members is pretty big. I’ve been involved as a Vitki in the lives of folks from Dubai to Australia to my mentor in England. And of course the folks in the USA. Before technology I would have been limited in my ability to reach out. But thanks to the phone and internet I’m able to serve those far away from me physically. What a blessing this has been!
I’m able to currently fill my life with Vitki antics. I do a lot of prep work and personal studies to be able to serve my tribe. My nose is always in a book. I keep myself busy with learning. Who knows where the next great idea will come from? It’s that hunt that keeps me reading.
Do I think a Vitki must dedicate themselves full time to be effective? Absolutely not! There are many excellent part time Vitkis out there. I admire those who are able to juggle their Vitki work with a career and family besides. I do have a family as well. But they all know full well I’m a Vitki and will as such will have weird hours! It’s not just a part of who I am. It IS who I am.
If you’re interested in keeping up with me lately you can get a copy of my book “Vitki Musings: Runes Seidr and Esoteric Asatru” from Amazon. Kindle edition also available. Or apply to become one of my apprentices by PM contacting me on Facebook. Or watch my YouTube channel A Vitki Gothi Speaks. Those will give you a good idea of how this full time Vitki spends his time. Hail!
