Volmarr’s daily spiritual rituals and practices

This is shared so as to inspire others to perhaps take up a similar set of daily practices. It really does help a great deal to have such a daily practice, and it is the key thing in making ones religious practice truly spiritual.

Every day I do the following and in this order:

Short invocation prayer to Sunna, which comes from Northern Tradition for the Solitary Practitioner, page 53.

A Hammer hollowing ritual to banish negative energies and invoke protection and positive energies.

Short devotional ritual to Freyja in which I offer incense and candle flame, and draw one rune for the day. The ritual used is the one from Northern Tradition for the Solitary Practitioner, the morning devotional page 161, adding my own invocation at the start of it, and not doing the oil consecration part.

A set of short prayers related to most of the gods/goddesses (Aesir and Vanir). They are some of the prayers from chapter 5 of Northern Tradition for the Solitary Practitioner. That book says to do the prayers using prayer beads, but I don’t see any need for the beads, just go through the prayers I like each day. The ones I do are section I, section V, and the first part of section IX stopping at and including Njord. You can find those on pages 110-115.

Daily offering blot of grape juice to the god, goddess, or wight of the day. Fridays I offer separately to both Freyja, and Freyr. On Saturdays I now offer to Njord since he does not have his own day, and also to my ancestors. Other days the god, goddess, or wight whom the day of the week is named for. This daily blot is simple, I step outside with a horn filled with grape juice, raise the horn, speak the invocation, drink half the juice and pour out the rest for the god/goddess/wight.

On Tuesdays additionally in honor of Tyr I read through the thews (virtues) which I follow which happen to be the Vanir Virtues

15 minutes sitting silent meditation.

At night I do a short nightly devotional ritual to Freyja, similar to the one I do in the morning. It is the one listed in Northern Tradition for the Solitary Practitioner, as the evening devotional page 162-163, adding my own invocation at the start of it, and not doing the oil consecration part. In that ritual I thank Freyja for all positive things that have happened during the day. Thanking your god or goddess for positive things that happens helps to encourage more of similar things to happen in the future for you.

All of this may sound like a lot but it takes less than an hour to do the morning part, more often around 40 minutes, and makes a huge difference in how I feel in general and in greatly improved events for the day. The night part only takes 5 minutes if even that long. I even do that part in the middle of a moment I have woken from sleep if I happen to fall asleep before doing it, and then go right back to bed after.

About Volmarr

★・・・・・・★・・・・・・★ Merry meet! Blessed be! 🌛🌝🌜 。・:*:・゚★, 。・:*:・゚☆   。・:*:・゚★, 。・:*:・゚☆ ☆Magickal Bio: I am a male Pagan wizard. I work with Norse deities mostly, but sometimes some of other pantheons such as Hindu, African, Greek/Roman, Buddhist, or Celtic deities. Even since my youngest days I remember sensing the magick in nature, and I had a strong knowing that witches could be either gender, and that most witches were good. Halloween has always been my favorite holiday. I first got into Wicca, tarot, and magick back around 1991. I went on to study the runes, and got strongly into Asatru (Norse Paganism) for a number of years. Later I focused on Hinduism, which is in many ways the eastern version of Wicca. I also had a Buddhist phase. I've also dabbled in astrology, Tantra, Voodoo, and yoga. Finally recently back into Wicca again after all these years. The spiritual journey is a path that can lead in many directions. I've always had a love for knowledge of spiritual topics, so have studied many things over the years. I really am fascinated by the older traditional forms of Wicca, but mixing in some modern innovations. I much prefer working skyclad. I see the beauty in the Charge of the Goddess, and feel it is also important to balance this with a Charge of the God. I love that traditional Wicca draws upon the potency of the sexual alchemy of attraction between female and male energies, represented as the loving union of Goddess and God, symbolized in the Great Rite. I feel that magick is an important tool in spiritual development. It is a potent way for any spiritual seeker to transform themselves in ways that foster powerful spiritual growth and self healing. Traditional forms of Wicca focus on this, on the development of the individual as a process. Wicca in it's more traditional forms is a powerful mystery school system. I also enjoy certain elements of more modern innovations within Wicca, such as solitary practice, and being able to learn how to become a witch through books and the knowledge to be found online, without needing to rely upon a group, since covens are not accessible for all people. 🌛🌝🌜 。・:*:・゚★, 。・:*:・゚☆   。・:*:・゚★, 。・:*:・゚☆ ☆More About Me: I am a non-smoker. I am vegan. I only mostly drink alcohol within rituals, rarely otherwise. I don't do any substances. I mostly prefer to use natural body care products. I like to eat organic and healthy as much as I can. I like fitness and exercise. I am child-free by choice, and that is something I don't plan to ever change. I am like a substance-free spiritual hippie with some gothic influences. I enjoy BDSM. My orientation within BDSM is as a Dom. I am unmarried and enjoy dating women of like mind. Other things I like: yoga, history, travel, camping, astrology, and online virtual reality (such as Second Life) . 🌛🌝🌜
