I am a Völva. Völva is Old Norse for “staff carrier,” the traveling spiritual guide learned in the ways of my European/Scandinavian Folk Soul. Like Thorbjorg from Eric the Red’s Saga, I am invited into communities to lead ceremony, share information, impart wisdom, and perpetuate the folk ways through song, story, and dance. I heal oorlag at it's source and read wyrd for individuals and groups.

Rune pull for Spring Transitions

The journey is long and arduous but the horse is swift and sure. I am about to journey, so, yes, this is the correct rune. Off to Scandinavia I go to sing my Volva songs in the land of my ancestors. When I will return to Minnesota, no one really knows. It could be weeks, it could be months.

This rune is to me the journeyman stage of my process. Indeed I have learned my songs, practiced and considered and now it is time to hit the road and prove myself.

I will miss Minnesota in the Spring.
I will sing to you all from the fjords and valleys, a low kulokkr, a great wyrdlokkr, and learn new songs from the land spirits to bring home.

uff da mei

A lovely weave before me
started long ago
some ends are frayed and winding
and I don't know where they go

Follow soft, not pulling
fingers always combing
seeing where they're going

singing as they're showing
winding like a fiddle
back into the middle

Strong ends now am I braiding, tying off and staying, straight and tight and holding
my weave so fine
