I believe in a cause. The cause of making the world a better place than the day before. To raise the collective wyrd of the human race. I dedicated myself to this cause decades ago and the flame burns no less bright today.
I believe in service.
I believe the only way for my life to get better is to help better the world I live in. I believe that the tug of wyrd can bring down the gods themselves. If my community suffers, I suffer. This has come up more and more these days as I watch the American Empire fall. Things are only going to get worse for a lot more people, it’s time for me to face my fears and take my places among the community to help heal the wounded.
I am not a warrior, I do not seek to go a-viking. I am bound to Frigga first and foremost, my job is to make sure when the dust settles those who are broken and bruised can return home to a safe place to heal and continue the good fight another day.
To those that are called by the Norns to walk the warrior’s path please know that I am here for you. I am happy to hold a safe place for you as best I can. I will speak with the spirits and twist good spells for you. I will seek boons and forge a good alliance with The Powers That Be. I will teach you to find your own strength. You will be strong so you are prepared for the challenges to come. I will do this for you so long as you honor my boundaries and remain a good guest. May my boundaries keep out all those who would break the frith of the community and destroy our good work.
My call is to serve, but that does not make me any less vital to the cause. Service is not weakness. Strength is required to follow this path.
Hail to Frigga, wise and knowing goddess,
great lady of Asgard, mistress of Fensalir,
whose guiding hand pulls order from chaos,
whose keen eye sees the patterns of existence,
whose presence makes our footing firm.
Beloved Frigga, fair one, judicious one,
wary and watchful, perceptive and aware,
guardian of children, defender of family,
holder of harmony, heart of the home,
we thank you for your blessings. Hail Frigga!
