Seidr and personal transformation

One of the most powerful ways to use Seidr is to use it for personal transformation. This is easy enough to accomplish if you have trance skills. Let me give you an example.

First let me restate my definition of Seidr. For me in my practices any trance work done with a northern tradition as its backdrop is Seidr. Traveling the nine realms qualifies.

First you need to determine what you would like to change about yourself and your thinking or behaviors. This could require some introspection. It’s time well spent though.

Once you have a plan in mind it’s time to journey. For transformation purposes some of the most powerful allies you can have are the Norns. They are the weavers of Wyrd and help control our paths. Whenever I have a change that needs to occur within myself I travel to the well with the Norns.

Next I ask them to see the weaving they are doing of my own Wyrd. If they agree to show me I look for something in the weaving that may correspond to the change I would like to have occur. Many times this appears as a dark or black strand in an otherwise colorful weaving. It looks out of place. I then ask the Norns to cut this thread and continue the weaving without it. If they agree then great. Mission accomplished. If they don’t agree to this request I simply go back to them at another time and it always seems to get done.

Next I return to ordinary consciousness and make a game plan of what I can do myself to bring about the change. This is something else I always ask the Norns. They generally give me a good idea of what I can do beyond their changing of my weaving. This always takes the form of good solid steps to take. It’s up to me of course to follow them!

This technique has worked for me many times. Whether it’s a habit I need to change it a relationship that I need severed I go to the Norns for their aid.

This is just one way to use Seidr for personal transformation. There are many more. The uses are only limited by your imagination. Dream it then do it with the help of the Norns!
