Learning to Sense Energy

We can all sense the energy around us quite well; but many of us are unaware that we can. Have you ever walked into a room right after there was a heated argument in it? Could you feel it ?

It’s all a matter of remembering how to do what you’ve known all along.

Here are some things to try:

1. Visualize energy coming from your hands and forming into a ball. Hold this ball, make it grow, shrink it, stretch it, twist it - play with it. It is there and you will learn to sense…

Hákonarmál - Old-norse viking poem

https://youtu.be/BVA5fVe2rlk

“Unbound
towards the home of men
will Fenrisulfr fare
before we will see
a king as great
in his stead.

kinsmen die,
earth and land deserted
Since Hákon left
with heathen gods
many men are harried”

Within the coterie of initiatory lineages…
