A Few Words on Othila’s Medicine

View this post on Instagram

Your #ancestors blood runs through your veins. Their joys, sufferings, knowledge & experiences are all encoded in your DNA. It's all there, inside, for you to tap into, for you to #reminder and (re) awaken. And yet you are not your Ancestors, your #fate awaits your own #becoming. 'Odal represents the security of what is well-known, but also points out the need to #gobeyond and #outgrow our #tradition in order to develop to the full. It also shows that we first have to be familiar with and master our own tradition before we can #transcend it, #interweave it with other traditions and #create something new. ' From *#rune Magic & #shamanism' by Jörgen I Eriksson #othila's Medicine is a powerful one, intrinsically #enterwined with #ancestralwork. I will be discussing its #healing aspects on a physical, emotional & spiritual level (along with my beloved #herbs) in my upcoming #runic Curriculum. #futhark #uthark #runes #urd #wyrd #northernshamanism #shamansofinstagram #metaphysical #spiritual #paganism #pagansofinstagram #europeanshamanism

Mastering Wunjo in Midgard

I think this method is a great tool because ultimately it’ll bring mastery in Midgard – which is our physical realm. I plan to use it in conjunction with shamanic & oracular work.

I will not discuss here the meanings of each Rune because this type of information can already be found everywhere all over the internet (and there are also countless books written on the topic). But I’m all about inner work & inner alchemy, and anybody who’s been using the Runes for some time knows that their interpretation becomes more personal with practice.

However, I will help with the correspondences between each of the 9 worlds and our inner realms. The author’s own interpretation is very helpful but I don’t always agree with him on the meanings (as I said earlier, interpretation is personal):

Please keep in mind that this is a 2D representation of the Multiverse

  1. Midgard (in the Middle) represents the Physical Reality, the Earthly Plane {WUNJO}
  2. Vanaheim (in the North-West) represents the Realm where things take form, the Manifestation from the Etheric planes to the Earthly plane {PERTHRO}
  3. Asgard (in the North) represents the Moral Ground, one’s Ethics & Values – including one’s spiritual values {KENNAZ}
  4. LjosAlfheim (in the North-East) represents Social Interactions & Behaviors {INGUZ}
  5. Muspelheim (in the East) represents the Realm of Imagination & Possibilities, the Mind’s Potential, the Creative Unconscious {OTHILA}
  6. Niflheim (in the South-East) represents the Realm of the Ancestors, Dreams, Intuition & Primal Consciousness {BERKANA}
  7. Helheim (in the South) represents Death & Greater Consciousness {URUZ}
  8. SvartAlfheim (in the South-West) represents the Realm of Realm of Mystery, of one’s Shadow Side, Choices, Dark Potential & Dark Enchantments {NAUTHIZ}
  9. Jotunheim (in the West) represents the Realm of the Future/the Possible Outcome, the Consequences of our Planned & Unplanned Actions {SOWELO}
