My mind is a mess

I’ve been going through a phase were my mind is an absolute mess. A jumble of Contemporary Seidr sessions and Runes and no one thought gaining enough traction to stick. A jumbled mess. So what to do?

I know from experience that during phases like this I need to do something physical. So I cleaned. That helped. Now it’s time to turn to the work of being a Vitki. That almost always helps.

The act of focusing on an Esoteric task gives me focus. I can zero in on a Rune reading or Contemporary Seidr session to keep my mind occupied. Or more likely to keep my mind open to the multiverse. I know however that I need a filter to keep the useless thoughts at bay. Doing the work offers me that filter. All the other thoughts seem to vanish as I focus on the work at hand.

This is just one of the ways Vitki work is important to me. It gives me something to grab onto when I  feel myself slipping. Spending so much time in other Realms has its dangers. You could spend up unintentionally in Asgard when you need to be right here in Midgard. So I practice my grounding quite a bit to remain solidly in the here and now when needed. There’s a time for journeying and a time to be present. It’s the balance that gets tough…

So I think I’ll do a rune reading on the topic of “What can I do to successfully get through this phase?”  Then I’ll do a trace session to get some ancestors to offer me wisdom. Those two things should help me regain control of my messy mind. Wish me luck!  Here goes…
