Invocation to Freya

 by Beatriz Prat

Freya14We call upon the Great Goddess of the Vanir 
Who is also known as Vanadis.
Freya, Shamanic mistress of Magick 
And the art of Seidr,
Teach us as you taught the All-Father Odin.
She who flies through the night 
With her falcon-feathered Cloak,
And who rides her chariot 
Driven by cats and her boar Hildisvini,
Shapeshift our lives to embrace your mysteries. 
We invoke your powers as warrior 
To help protect our hearth and home.
Grant us prosperity and riches, 
Surround us with gold and jewels.
She who wears the necklace Brisingamen, 
Gifted by pleasure, 
She who is wanted by Giants and men 
For the power of sexuality and fertility,
Grant us beauty and love. 
Show us how to honor our bodies 
As we honor yours.
Embrace us as you would your daughters, 
For we are your children.
We praise you, we worship you, 
And we welcome you into our lives. 
Grant us your presence, 
Hail Freya!

For the first time since the Vikings sailed, the Icelandic public are worshiping classical Norse gods like Odin, Thor, and Frigg at a public temple built in their honor. "The worship of Odin, Thor, Freya and the other gods of the old Norse pantheon became an officially recognized religion exactly 973 years after Iceland’s official conversion to Christianity."

An Icelandic association called Asatruarfelagid, which promotes faith in the Norse gods and is headed by high-priest Hilmar Orn Hilmarsson, raised sufficient funds and received permission from the government to construct the first such temple in 1,000 years. Observers wonder how the rise of neo-pagan traditions will affect the reception of Christianity.

Professor Luke Timothy Johnson of Emory University says early Christians frequently misinterpreted virtuous gods as demons:

"Christian mission has always positioned itself as a rescue operation, that people were in desperate straits, were indeed under the influence of demons. ... It is impossible to read the reflections of Marcus Aurelius ... and not recognize a profound mode of religious expression. ... It is impossible ... not to recognize that [paganism] is the furthest thing possible from the demonic. It is indeed a form of religious expression from which we can learn much, and at the very least we need to respect."



Iceland's Norse temple will host official ceremonies like weddings and funerals and be dug 13 feet down into a hill that overlooks Iceland's capital, Reykjavik. Hilmarsson said his organization's purpose is not to dispute any Christian traditions, but simply reflect Iceland's complex spiritual history.

Hilmarsson said: "I don't believe anyone believes in a one-eyed man who is riding about on a horse with eight feet. We see the stories as poetic metaphors and a manifestation of the forces of nature and human psychology." Membership in Asatruarfelagid has tripled in Iceland to 2,400 members, out of a total population of 330,000.

Introducing "The Voyage", a brand new AYP design. Setting sail beneath the moon and stars, ancient Viking mariners relied upon their intuition as well as their five senses to explore and conquer new worlds. Here's a link for more info: www.askyourpendulum.com/proddetail.asp?prod=PND-VOY. Drawing upon these legendary old Norse talents to venture into the great unknown, this design is called "The Voyage". It's created to help you navigate and explore the vast and ever-shifting currents of life - and undiscovered realms waiting just over the horizon. Also known as Blue Labradorite or Black Moonstone, this is Larvikite, a natural gemstone (named for a region in Norway), rich with silvery blue, labradorescent feldspar "flash" (and sometimes even a smattering of pale lilac).

The weight-stone's shape is a squat orb set between attractive, sturdy sterling silver mounts from which dangles a tiny secondary "pendulum" in the shape of a spike. Suspended on a detachable sterling silver chain accented with shimmery Rainbow Moonstone, Larvikite and sterling stars, The Voyage is topped with a sterling silver filigreed fob (the fob is the holding piece) in the shape of a Viking long-ship, complete with dragon-head bow, full sail, lapping waves, and even eight tiny oar-holes along the vessel's side.

Larvikite a protective, grounding stone that comes from Norway. Because it shimmers and flashes like other more well-known feldspars (such as labradorite and moonstone), Lavikite is often called "Blue Labradorite" or "Black Moonstone". It has a strong connection to the energies of the earth and can be used to bring its holder back into the physical after meditation. Larvikite fosters patience, inner vision, psychic ability and adaptability. It facilitates stronger vision in past life regression work and helps its holder see themselves through the eyes of the higher self.

Moonstone is keeper of the feminine mysteries. It promotes intuition and empathy and fosters motherly love, support, encouragement, and ancient wisdom. It calms and soothes emotions with its powerful feminine energy. It gently opens the mind to serendipity and synchronistic events. It facilitates new beginnings, invokes patience and allows you to see cyclic patterns. Rainbow Moonstone is excellent for clearing the psychic senses. It gives you psychic protection while working on the intuitive level and helps clear and/or ease emotional trauma.
