Lady Freya

I just wanted to share something about what Freya means to me. So often I see her from a male perspective where her death and warrior aspects are thought of most.

I hear people describe her as sexual, frightening and dark. Some are even afraid to work with her.

I am a woman and I find that Freya may work differently with women than with men. But I don’t see a lot about Freya from the female perspective.

When Freya works with women she often brings messages of female empowerment. How we are different than men and we should feel proud of that. Freya can help women get in touch with their bodies and feel more confident.

Yes she is sexual but I find her sexuality to be empowering for women (and even men) I feel her sexuality is confused for being a nymphomaniac who is constantly d.t.f.

Instead she shows you how to EMBRACE your sexuality. She is not a nymphomanic she is just proud and unashamed. She does not hide it. She does not have the sexual appetite of a man she has the appetite of a woman. She flings the covers off the myth that women have never wanted sex just as much as men.

Working with Freya in her love and beauty aspect, I have never felt more beautiful or empowered.

If you need more strength and more confidence in yourself. If you need to be able to gain the upperhand in relationships where you are taken advantage of…Freya can help. She’s been there she knows what it’s like.

She too is a woman.

What does Freya mean to you?

Freya is “like” family to me, we have a long history, not really in working together but I would say a bit closer than that, kind of like a sister. A little sister or older sister, eeeeh lol. A pretty strong willed woman.

I have literally been thinking about her all day.

Freyja is a bit of a vast concept/goddess for me. She is sometimes thought to be Gullveig, who was a seeress and sorceress who the Aesir failed to kill, because when they stabbed and burned her, she came back, more powerful than before, laughing at their foolishness, which eventually caused her to ascend as Heid, a goddess. As you said, she’s a goddess of female empowerment, sensuality, war and death among a few other things.

To me, Freyja is that timeless essence of the Völva, that can never be destroyed. That unconquerable power within every witch, warlock, etc. Amongst some other things that you will typically hear from other practitioners that aren’t degrading.

Of the gods who reached out to me, she was the first. She adopted me as her Sister, so to me she’s family. She encourages me not to give up on love, I’ve heard her voice before. It’s very…airy if that’s a good way of describing it. She likes cats, passion fruit tea, pink & red and books.

Just go with the flow and try to find a way to honor her that is fitting for you. Drop the lady stuff if she doesn’t like it. Just call her Freya or ask what she would prefer and see what she tells you

I met her recently but she’s always been a strong motherly figure to me. I still call on her for banishing and cleansing and often seek her guidance when I get rune and tarot readings (online).

Not much to be honest. I prefer more primordial forces when it comes to my goddesses.

Just had her reccomended to me for love matters and I’m already impressed but only by her Track record but it seems we may share a passion for the more intimate side of a person. Gonna have to keep looking though.

Where is she tought to be Gullveig?
I have not found anything that comes even close to that in any of the relevant texts.

This is other people’s UPG as well as general thoughts of other people based on some of the themes that go on between her and Freyja.

The only darkness there is regarding Freya is the one brought on by christian morals.

She is an enemy to me as she is related to the Aesir.

I wouldn’t say that either. She’s the goddess of witchcraft (known as Seidr in that tradition), sex/love, war and death.

All of those have a darkness to them, especially if you know anything about witchcraft.

She is Vanir originally, then joined the Aesir after the Aesir-Vanir war.

This has to do with a perspecitve that has changed over time.

If you look at traditional witchcraft (or rather Seidr) there is not anything inherantly evil or dark about it.
The thing with Seidr was that it could mosly be seen as unmanly.

When it comes to sex,love,war and death there was a diffrent wiew on these things that we have forgotten becuse our values has changed.

For the norse they where all natural part of life.
War was seen as something good (remember they where a warrior culture) and if you died in battle you got to go to valhalla.

She’s actually still a Vanir because the Aesir broke the first treaty when they exchanged hostages, it was why they created Kvasir whom they dwarves later killed and made his blood into mead.

Yes she married Odin, but even that marriage is being questioned in modern studies.
