Everyday shamanism

seidrrrskjelett4seidrrosebergdronning
This month has been incredibly busy, and I feel as though I have put up a pretty strong mental shield to keep my energy levels high enough to work through it. Being conscious of  one’s health can be quite the challenge at times, especially since we live in a world where there is constant movement – a crash of energies all times. Everything has to happen at such a high speed, and I am pretty sure that this is not something we are meant to be doing. Stress is the root to all evil (my personal opinion). Also – Stress is cited as a common contributing factor of many mental and physical health issues. Taking time to slow down – moving at your own pace is very important. Remember to do that. It took me many years to really take time to do this. This year has been a year where I had to – I have worked really hard with energies, – how to stabilize spiritual, physical and mental health. It is all connected. Through working with both ancient medicine, and school medicine – I have found my formula, and battled something that had to be tackled. (Last year was a hard one). What I am trying to say with all these words is simply; Take care of yourself. You have one body -and  your soul is stuck in it (at least for a while). Love yourself and feel that you are deserving of the attention you give yourself. Also; To work with shamanism is to control your own self – your own energies should be balanced when entering energy work. As with everything in life, it is that easy and that difficult. You need to know what you are doing. 

This is my second post that is (only) tapping into energy work, norse shamanism. To some of you, this might seem strange (which is totally okay). To me, it is completely natural and a conscious part of my life. To those of you who are interested; What would you like to know more about within this field?

Seiðr

The forest called to me, and I answered. December. Leaves, smoke, soil and candlelight. I felt grounded, I felt at one with the elements. And I took the time to breathe- Breathe with intention. 

Seiðr is ancient norse shamanism, connected to The Old Norse religion. Seiðr is a spiritual practice, a craft that involves ritualistic energy workings. True mastering of the craft is only acquired through experience and wisdom. Books can only take you so far. You have to get your hands dirty- and only you can do this; This kind of work comes from within.

(I posted this on instagram in december and it became the most popular pic of “2016”.  I remember thinking that people would think I looked ugly when I posted it -but none of that matters to me anyways – so I thought why not. I have seen some recreations of this “look” already which feels …weird, but fun!)

I will be doing more looks like this one this year. Honestly – I can’t help it… I HAVE to.
