A prayer poem: Song of Byggvir

I am the son of the soilMy feet are in the dirtMy bones grow downwards like rootsMy soul reaches up high,Where Mother and Father waitAll Their children’s return My body comes from the soil,From the lovely body of Jord, I was bornMy soul comes from Oden,He breathed me to life,Gifted me with spirit and mind,AsFortsätt läsa ”A prayer poem: Song of Byggvir”

Since we’re on the topic of weaving…

I came across this and was reminded how we are all co-weavers of She Who Weaves Existence: May She bless us all with good thread. The book is ‘The Monk Within: Embracing a Sacred Way of Life’ by Beverly Lanzetta.

Knowing Freya. Part 7: Frigga and Freya

Frigga and Freya are two Goddesses with a lot in common. They are both skilled practitioners of seid, They both have the hability to transforms into falcons and the names of Their Husbands (Odin and Odr) are near identical (meaning ‘Lord of frenzy’ and ‘frenzy’, respectively).

Knowing Freya. Part 4: Her Husband and Children

I was originally planning on writing one post about Freya’s Husband and one about Her Children but there is so little information about Them all that I might as well write one short post instead of two very short one. Let’s start with the Husband, as He’s the one we know the most about. WhatFortsätt läsa ”Knowing Freya. Part 4: Her Husband and Children”

I’m not really one to have new years resolutions and I haven’t made any for 2022, at least not in the sense of things I’ve promised myself to do.

The Gift of Simplicity

I’ve been planning on writing more on my semi-monastic path but I haven’t known quite where to start. Truth be told, most days it really isn’t that interesting.

Types of relationships you can have with the Deities

Those of us who come from an Abrahamic background were taught to only see the Divine in the form of a Lord or a Heavenly Father.

Today, I wantedFortsätt läsa ”Types of relationships you can have with the Deities”

Bugs and bones

Today I went with members of my family to pick chanterelles in the forest. We only found a few but what we did find plenty of was animal bones. The area is one heavily frequented by hunters, so this wasn’t much of a surprise. It’s been way too long since I was in nature. ProbablyFortsätt läsa ”Bugs and bones”
