Let’s face it. Asatru often is a cold and heartless path. All the warrior mentality. But the lore is filled with love. Love of the land. Love of spouses. Love of clan. Love of honor. So with so much love being spread what can we as Vitkis do to take it even further?
First I think I need to state my definition of love. For me love is not a fluffy bunny emotion. Love is a strong and powerful force. Love can overcome fierce obstacles. It can be the driving force behind acts of war even. But the love I experience is a strong solid emotion. Nothing fluffy at all!
Love can consume you. Not just romantic love. But love of many different things. Love of Esoteric work is one way this emotion can manifest. I can honestly say I have a true deep love and reverence for Seidr and the Runes. Both disciplines have brought so much to my life. That fact alone is reason enough for me to love these processes. It is a true two way relationship. I put much energy into these disciplines and get much in return. How much more of love can you ask?
The use of the energy of love in magic is powerful. Every act of magic should have an emotional energy behind it. That energy is what sends the spell out into the multiverse to do your work. Isn’t using love to send out your intentions better than using anger or hate? For me the emotional power of love carries the day. I’d rather put out a positive emotion than a negative one.
I recently did a candle sending. I created my bind rune and carved it on the candle. As I loaded the candle with the Rune energy I focused also on the sturdy emotion of love. I added the emotion to the Runic energy I was sending. Instead of feeling worn out after the act I felt light and full of joy. That is what love can provide your magic!
So think about using the energy of love next time you’re doing a magical act. Try focusing on this positive emotion. Let the stable foundation of love serve you well. It has done so for me!
