Riff

This is a riff. An entry about nothing in particular but maybe about everything. Here goes.

I love the Runes. I love the structure they provide. I did a reading today about something that’s on my mind. And as ever I was given insight and direction that I would never have thought of before the reading. It’s always that way for me. If something is bothering me I’ll grab the Runes. And presto! Instant wisdom. A wisdom that’s far deeper and more meaningful than my own brain is capable of having. So I love the Runes.

I love Seidr. How else would I be able to communicate with ancestors I’ve never even met! Not to mention that I can talk to my spirit allies about stuff. My allies are my best friends. I can totally be myself with them. Unfiltered and honest. No need to worry about agendas either. They expect nothing in return other than my gratitude. That’s a small price to pay for such open dialogue with an otherworldly being.

I never know if my Vitki work is “good enough”. No matter what kind of feedback I get on things I’ve done I’m always second guessing myself. What could I have done differently? What did the client really want? Was I honest enough with the client? These are thoughts that run through my mind after I’ve done a session. But on the upside I believe these sorts of doubts help to keep my ego in check. I will never consider myself a “powerful” Vitki. A good one yes. But great no. I’ve encountered many Vitkis who think more of themselves than their work merits. Let them have the ego. I’ll just keep plugging along.

Being a full time Vitki is always an adventure. I rarely know each morning what the day will bring. Sure there’s the structure provided by my work with my apprentices. I know how much prep time I need to do to have a good session with them. But I also need to remain flexible to their individual needs. This definitely keeps things interesting!

And that’s my Musings for tonight. Hopefully I didn’t take up too much of your time!
