Today I did a meditation/ritual for Odin. I drew the Eye of Odin and gazed into it. I had three candles lit around a glass of mead I made as an offering.
I’ve been having a couple of Odin related things pop up, as to why I did this ritual. I’ve been wanting to evoke a spirit for awhile, but didnt know who to evoke so I put the idea on the back burner. I suddenly started to get followed on a social media app by a company called, something to the effect of, Viking Apparel (workout clothes.) So I looked at their page and found everything literally had Odin written on it.
I didn’t think much of it at the time and went on with my day. Later, as I pulled into my parking spot at my apartments, i decided to pull up BALG and search the forums for the term “evocation.” Lo and behold, the first one that showed up was about Odin. I left at that exact moment to try my hand at finding some mead at my local liquor store.
I arrived and had no idea where to start my search. In some places mead is considered a “dessert wine,” but it’s always in a random location. I said, “Ok, Odin. If I’m going to offer you mead, you’re going to have to help me find it.” Not only did I immediately find it after saying that (which I searched for a good 15 mins before that), but I found already chilled mead. Perfect!
I want really sure what I was going to be doing ritual wise, so I basically just winged it. I felt that I needed to do one immediately, so I did.
Now (roughly 30 to 45 mins ago) I decided to meditate on the Eye of Odin again. I placed the sigil in the middle of the three candles, replacing the glass that was mead, and had a really hard time focusing. I kept getting distracted. I had my headphones on and was listening to Danheim to help with the mental mood, so to speak, but I kept gravitating toward my phone.
Suddenly, my phone screen went black in the middle of a text and the volume of my music got incredibly louder. I tried to turn it down on my headphones but the minus button literally did nothing. So I took the hint and focus.
I felt a really intense surge go through my body once I started to charge the sigil. I moved that up and down my body from head to toe three times. I wasn’t able to hear anything from him, but I thanked him for this feeling and soon after it vanished.
Anyone have any suggestions on rituals to do for him? I promised him that I would do rituals for him every Wednesday. And if anyone has experiences they would like to share, I would love to hear them.
