Devotional to Odin 3/8/17

For this devotional, I said this prayer and offered Lord Odin beer instead of incense.  The scent of Odin’s incense bothers my husband.  It still seemed to be well received, though.  I asked, “What blessings does Lord Odin offer me today?”

Here’s the draw:

The rune on the left is Gebo, gift.  This is an indication that my offering was well received.  The rune in the middle is Dagaz, day.  This is the rune of new beginnings.  The rune on the right is Kenaz, torch (although it can also mean ulcer).  This rune speaks of light and warmth.  All together, I think this draw is saying that I have a bright future ahead of me.

Devotional to Freyja 3/3/17

I didn’t actually do this devotional on Friday.  I was tired and so I had gone to bed, but woke up a little after midnight today (Saturday) and decided to do devotional (which actually helped me sleep).

Lady Freyja was my first Patron, so this devotional could be seen as the most crucial, though they are all important to me.

I lit Lady Freyja’s candle in Her special candle holder before saying this prayer:

Hail to the Lady of amber.  Hail to the Lady of steel.  Hail to the Lady of passion, Bringer of luck, Bestower of wealth.  You are the envy of all the Gods, the treasure of the nine sacred worlds.  Freya, mighty and magnificent, We praise Your name with our Passions.  Ignite within us an awareness of our own creative fire.  Ignite within us hunger, to burn through the pale shadows of our lives and to find integrity:  in all we do, in all we dream, in all we are.  Bless us, Freya, Lady of the Vanir, and we shall hail You, always.

(prayer by Galina Krasskova)

I then lit a stick of Freyja incense (again from the same shop) from Her candle as an offering.  While stirring my runes in my bag, I asked, “What blessings does Lady Freyja offer me?”

These were the runes I drew:

The rune on the left is Raidho, the journey rune.  The middle rune is Eihwaz, the yew rune.  This rune represents Yggdrasil, the World Tree.  The rune on the right is Gebo, the gift rune.  This rune speaks of reciprocity and hospitality.  All together, I think these runes are saying that I will soon be embarking on a journey of a spiritual nature.  Gebo usually says to me that my offerings are accepted, so Lady Freyja appreciated the incense.

Hail Freyja!

Blessings, Victoria
