If you want to submit a request for a prayer, poem, or song to be written to you privately or to be posted on this blog or my Patreon for a God, Ancestor, or spirit, sign up for the Ansuz and above level here on my Patreon. This prayer was requested from my first Ansuz patron for Freyja.
Rock, rock, rock
The body thrashes
The soul parts loosen
The eyes roll
The breath quickens
The body flushes
The oðr rises
The Way to Urðr opens
The rock, rock, rocking brings sensation
Thought unfolds from taste, touch, tongue, tempo, truesight, trained movements unfold tapestry
This is the way you showed me, O Holy One
To open up to embrace ergi and þver nature
To open the skull and body to regin, megin, vaettir
The pulse bounding in my veins
Yes, You whisper
This is the Way you seið
This is how you open your eyes and let your soul loose and your hands to work and hamr to fare
This is how you take up power and are taken up by power
O Holy Seiðmóðir!
O Holy Seiðkona!
O Holy Seiðregin!
It flows from ground through the body, spikes through the soul and out the mouth
It flows from the heart and rage and hope and love and whisper
It flows from the lips with incantations and wrath and words and hum and Rúnspiall
Then it is over, heat rushes through the lyke, hamr comes to rest, coals of oðr banked, vili empowered, megin increased
Your careful hands that took me on steady me
The power pools and readies for its use once more
I shake, not from the cold, but the lightest taste of Your Might
O Holy Lady!
Thank You for showing me one of Your Ways
For knowledge and power
Gebo is kept
