So, I'm coming to a point in my spiritual and magical path where I feel the need to light the proverbial fire under my ass. I've fallen way behind in my rune studies, and have never really studied seiðr. I've always had an affinity for the runes, and really do ken them, but I hit a point of non-progression a few years back. I've also always had a strong desire to learn about shamanism, especially as it pertains to Nordic culture. So I was thinking that I should start looking to Freyja for guidance. I asked Oðinn to send Freyja into my life, that I might learn seiðr from her, as he did. Since then, I've been thinking that these are not the Christian "give me stuff, Gods" type of gods, and that I need to work towards this goal myself, and seek Freyja out, rather than beseeching her to come to me (or worse, ask Oðinn to send her... OOOOPS!)
I'm not sure where to start, however, and talking to myself via this website (and probably LJ) will be my recourse.
So here we are, at phase one, commitment.
I, Beowulfe, son of Oðinn, do hereby declare my intent and devotion to the study of seiðr, wheresoever that that course may take my Path.
