Why can’t I fly?

I love birds. I had pet parrots for years. I love the way they think and act. I especially love the way they fly.

Wild birds also have a special place in my heart. They are undoubtedly the best fliers. They can soar past your field of vision into the clear great beyond in an instant.

I wish I could do that. Just take it to the wing and fly. I’m not really sure where I’d go. I think it’s just the act of flying that is the goal. No destination. Simply flight for the sheer joy of flying.

I have ideas. And thoughts. I try to share these with others. I have this blog. I’ve written two books. I share my stuff. And most of the time people respond in a positive manner to it. When I’m busy sharing ideas I feel almost as if I’m flying. As if I’m leaving my MS-riddled body behind and being one with the sky. It’s a powerful feeling. Addictive even. It’s why I write in the first place. To fly.

I hope while I’m flying I’m leaving interesting patterns in my wake that others can follow. Perhaps even grow from. The words I put down are my way to leave a map to the sky. A map that others can follow if they choose. It’s not the only map of the sky out there and maybe not the best but it’s mine. That’s what I leave behind in my flying. A map of the sky as I’ve experienced it. It’s the best I can do.

So maybe I do fly after all. And hopefully my flight brings you a map of sorts to the sky. All that’s left is for you to fly on your own. Go ahead and use my map as a guide and depart to places I hadn’t even imagined. Make your own map too.   Fly.

Cursing out

I admit I don’t generally do curses. I prefer to keep my magic positive. But recently I have done a curse sending. It’s the first in years. But I feel it was well deserved.

The person I cursed was someone who was gaining power and influence by getting others to be their minions. Then they would suck the life and energy from their “followers” and cast them away. I was made aware of this behavior by two people who had first hand experience with it. They had experienced this behavior. This person was in effect acting like a spiritual vampire. I find this sort of behavior very disturbing. I felt I needed to act.

So I decided to do a bind rune sending to in effect disturb this person’s ability to act in the ways that would bring them new followers. I constructed a bind rune of murk stave aspects of several Runes having to do with words and communication. I then sent the bind rune to this person for it to take effect. Did it work?  All I know is that shortly after sending it this person was blocked from posting on several Facebook groups. Their ability to communicate was cut short. I called that success.

Before you decide you are going to curse a person there are things I strongly recommend you do. First examine your motives. Why do you want to place the curse?  Is it to hinder others from doing a behavior that negatively impacts others?  Or is it for material gain or personal glory?  Make sure your motives are pure and for the betterment of the multiverse. If so than I say you have a green light to place the curse.

Best to not curse if possible. Best to just let the multiverse work it’s own magic against the person. But if fate needs a little boost…

Let your gods decide if a curse is in order. Do a Contemporary Seidr session on the subject. Do a Rune reading. Get in contact with the divine and try to get their take on the subject. That’s always the best way to decide.

Serious work to be approached in a serious manner. Keep that in mind before cursing someone out.

Lessons I’ve learned

September marks the two year anniversary of my beginning my trip down the Druid path. I felt this was a good time to reflect on what I’ve learned so far. Here goes.

The lore is a living breathing thing. It’s not just some stories that were recorded to simply entertain. They are tales of things that have wisdom for us as much today as it did for the ancestors. If we take the time to study the lore it’s not a very far stretch to see what these stories have to say to us today. We can all benefit from the real life application of the lessons to be learned in the words.

The gods and goddesses are talkative. Very. A little meditation or trance work opens up dialogues with the hitherto unknown. This is a way to directly experience the other realms. Our hearts and minds are opened with a little effort to make the connection with the deities. These conversations are great tools in the regards of self transformation. If you have yet to make an effort to connect with these entities I strongly recommend you try. You won’t be disappointed.

Trees are people. Trees have a life cycle just like humans. They are young and sprightly and become old and wise. Trees are in touch as we all should strive to be in touch with the rhythm of the year. They bloom and wither all in the course of a year. I try my best to be as in touch with these cycles as my tree kin are.

I have learned the value of quiet contemplation. As someone who has a brain that is always in overdrive I now know the power of silence. I can rest and relax with a simple crystal in my hands. Trying to be in touch with nature slows me down. These are the times you cherish most.

Those are a few of the lessons I’ve learned. There are more. And as I continue on this path I look forward to learning much more.

Words

I am a Vitki. I am a writer. I write about Vitki stuff. I have this blog. My books. My Facebook page A Contemporary Vitki. I write almost daily. That’s a lot of words. But words for the Vitki are power. Words can change the multiverse. Words can make a difference.

Think about the words you use in a magical sending. Whether they be Rune names or stating your intention words are the tools we use to bend and shape our reality. In this way words definitely have power.

The words you use in communicating with others have power. Facebook is a great example. The posts and comments we make all help others form a picture of who we are. Many friends in social media we have never truly met. Yet because of our words they can become as important as any other friend. This is why we need to choose the words we use with care. They help create a picture of who we are for the world. Think about this the next time you comment on a post!

Remember words are power. Use your words carefully. Build for yourself an image of who you are through the careful use of words. Words are within your control. Make the most of them!

And now for a message from Freyja…

I did a Contemporary Seidr session this morning. The gods haven’t been speaking to me much of late. But I tried again. This time it was Freyja who showed up. With her cats. She said to me that I am doing the work of the gods. What they had planned for me. This blog. My books “Vitki Musings” and “On Contemporary Seidr” ( which are available exclusively through Amazon!). My work with my apprentices. All of this she told me was the god’s work. The work I was meant to do. Being a Contemporary Vitki is what my life was always striving toward.

Good to know. I like the fact that the gods have chosen me for this work. And it’s good to know that the gods seem to approve of what I’m doing.

This whole journey has been quite a trip. All the stuff I’ve studied and read and practiced all these years has finally amounted to something. Something big. Something that makes me useful to my clan. That is the highest calling. And I take this duty with humility and sincerity.

Hopefully those of you reading this are on your own path. All I advise you is to keep going. Pick up the clues the gods place in your path. Work. Study. Practice. You will find your life filled with magic and wonder. Your life will be rich.

That is my greatest hope for you. Freyja told me so!
