Episode 3 is ready to go! Laine and Jan are very excited to get episode 3 recorded and published. Please download Gifts of the Wyrd from Podbean.

In episode 3, we have a discussion about divination and gnosis in modern practice.

During the divination segment, we have a candid discussion about the use of runes and segway into Spae/Seidh. As rune workers and spae walkers, we talk about how these aspects of divination are part of our practices today.

The discussion then led into a segment we will likely call “Modern Practice.” This time we talked about gnosis (for our purposes gnosis refers to spiritual knowledge) and its place in today’s practice. Is UPG (unverified personal gnosis)/SG (shared gnosis)/PG or MUS (Made up sh – er stuff) valid today? What if it isn’t in the eddas or the lore? Is gnosis that is received today valid and useful to our practice? Have a listen and let us know what you think.

Gifts of the Wyrd

Welcome to Gifts of the Wyrd. I’m working on the technical side and looking forward to a vibrant outreach of an amazing part of following the Gods and Goddesses of the Northern European regions.

With the integration and movement of people around the world today, there is a wonderful interaction of experiences, identity, and understandings (gnosis) of the Gods, wights, and entities and their interactions with humans.

Finding myself very much in attunement with the Vanic Gods and Goddesses, I experience their relationship to Midgard through magic, shamanistic style work, seidh, divination (oracle work), and connection to the land.

Gifts of the Wyrd is a place to experience that together.
