Most often, people seek healing when they
are in crisis. Crisis reveals cognitive dissonance or duality of mind.
It is within the discomfort of this duality that we find out which threads of oorlog need mending. Our world, the Earth is in crisis. Healing ourselves is healing the whole.
We are a globe in post-traumatic stress. Every one of us has been cut off from our indigenous spiritual traditions and ancestral folk ways. This manifests as Inherited Cultural Grief (IHG),known also as Historical Cultural Trauma, Ancestor Grief, or Unresolved Historical Grief, and is the phenomenon of passing unhealed trauma from one generation to the next. IHG presents as dysfunctional behaviors sometimes so mild that we think they are natural to the culture such as passive aggressive behavior or self deprecation. Sometimes the behaviors are extreme such as addiction, abuse, and suicide.
In Norse tradition we believe that the individual is the summary of their ancestors. Oorlog (meaning primal law) is the Old Norse word for something like "karma." The accumulation of ancestral inheritance: thoughts, feelings, beliefs, DNA and genetics, talents, temperaments and dysfunctions passed from one generation to the next defines who we are. This is the oorlog that can not be changed.We also believe that the present moment is where we determine our future.
The use of Völva Stav to ground and center us in the present moment, creates a state of seidr consciousness within which we can begin to heal the emotional body surrounding trauma. Through song vibration that energizes the web of wyrd we can create new patterns of functional and healed oorlog for the next generation.Listen to my radio show about IHG for International Womens Day, March 2007
Other tools for healing include:
Traditional and culturally based ritual with stav and runes coupled with modern healing modalities.
I accept individual clients and work in group settings. These teachings are part of Völva Stav.
