Brick wall

Sometimes in my Vitki work I run full force face first into a wall. The wall could appear in any of the areas I work in. Contemporary Seidr. Rune readings. Whatever. But suddenly I’ll hit this brick wall and bust my nose in the process…

At times like these I have to stop. Literally. The multiverse just won’t let me move forward. And so I have to ask myself “Why?”  Why is the multiverse putting up this stopping point?  Why am I not to keep moving forward?  What the Hel is going on?

Normally upon reflection I find that I need to simply slow down. Let myself catch my breath. I move at such a frantic pace most of the time. But there are times when the multiverse sends me this message to just stop. So I stop. Do a little breathing. And reevaluate what I’ve been up to that caused this phenomenon.

I understand that walls can be good. They protect us from the bad stuff. They provide structure. They offer boundaries that I often am in need of. Walls can be my friends.

But then there’s the other times when a wall is just a big old obstacle to achieving a goal. Then it’s not my friend but my enemy. The wall is bad. And those walls are meant to be burst through.

So how to tell if a wall is a friend or a foe?  That’s when I do a Contemporary Seidr session to souse it out. A good old fashioned trance session can shine a light on the goings on that are troubling me. I can rely on the gods to set things aright. They rarely fail me. I don’t believe the gods get anything out of watching me flail around. They provide the ways back to the path I’m meant to follow. I just have to trust that the gods have my back. And they most certainly do…

Walls. Good thing or bad?  I trust in the gods to let me know. And for that wisdom and guidance I am eternally grateful…

One thought on “Brick wall”

  1. Well it’s like that dream I had about the bears blocking me from getting into the house that I told you about. Introspection. When we hit a wall, we should revert to ourselves. I went back to honoring the gods in a way I understood from the beginning. They have started showing up again. You taught me this and now I see this message everywhere! It’s so important to get in touch with ourselves because it’s about our path and with that comes purpose. Patience, calm and quiet, reveals our purpose…which leads to intention. Walls are good.
