Recommended Posts

A Vanic Priestess Initiate, who has been called by the Lady Freyja and feels ready to embrace her fully, is kneeling in a stone circle during one of her Rites of Ordination as a Priestess of Freyja, which is a mile stone on her Priestessly Path.

The Priestessly Path is an incomparable journey of personal growth and spiritual evolution. It opens the portal of one's heart, deepens one's knowing of one's purpose, enables one to come into our true power, expands one's reality, and promotes one's verisimilitude.

Hm, I am curious to know more about the initiation process for Vanic Priestesses. Could you tell me a quick overview of how that process goes?

A High Priestess wishes to convey to His Grace that there are seven stages in the process of becoming a Vanic Priestess. Each of those stages, except for the seventh and final stage, lasts at least thirteen moon cycles.

 

The seven stages of Vanic Priestessly Initiation are:

  1. Fledgling;
  2. Novice;
  3. Temple Handmaiden;
  4. Sacred Voyage Lady;
  5. Priesstess Trainee;
  6. Priestess Initiate;
  7. Priestess.

Stage 1: Fledgling

A Fledgeling is a female who enrolls in a temple of a Vanir God or Goddess of whom she should like to become a Priestess. Such Lady must upon joining the aforesaid temple take vows of secrecy. Fledglings are under the direct supervision of a Fledgling Mistress.

 

The newly Vanic Priestessly Initiate shall in this part of the initiation process serve as a temple attendant. She shall also train in the sacred arts of the Ancient Ways - such as yoiking, dancing, spinning, archery, meditation, yoga, and gardening as well as study recipes, artwork, poetry, songs, prose, prayers, rites, rituals, spells, ways to connect and commune with the Vanir, and practical Divine wisdom put together by countless generations of Vanic Priestesses, all in preparation for her future ordination.

 

Stage 2: Novice

When the temple leadership is satisfied that a Fledgling has gained sufficient knowledge and skills they may create her a Novice. This occurs in a special ceremony.

 

Novices may assist Priestesses and more senior Vanic Priestessly Initiates as temple attendants with rites, rituals and ceremonies as well as other duties, tasks and functions. They also keep enriching their knowledge and skills, especially their ways to connect and commune with the Lords and Ladies Divine. Novices are under the direct supervision of a Novice Mistress.

 

Stage 3: Temple Handmaiden

A Novice who (already) has received the Gift of Fertility and is able to reach the Higher State of Mind may, through a special ceremony, be promoted to Temple Handmaiden in the event that the temple leadership deems such Novice worthy of such rank. A Temple Handmaiden is assigned a (senior) Priestess as a mentor.

 

As a Temple Handmaiden the Vanic Priestessly Initiate makes her first voyages to Vanaheim - the home world of the Vanic Lords and Ladies Divine - to get acquainted with that Sacred Realm, takes for the first time - under supervision of her mentor - part in sexual rites and rituals, and may also with the guidance of the aforesaid (senior) Priestess preside over rites, rituals and ceremonies.

 

Stage 4: Sacred Voyage Lady

After having successfully completed the stage of Temple Handmaiden, this once again to be determined by the temple leadership, the Vanic Priestessly Initiate becomes a Sacred Voyage Lady.

 

A Sacred Voyage Lady is required by Vanic custom ancient beyond the memory of woman to accomplish a seven-year working trip, which is called the Sacred Voyage Lady Years, in which she travels throughout the world from temple to temple and from sacred site to sacred site to gain more knowledge, insight, skills and experience.

 

The Vanic Priestessly Initiate also pays several visits to Vanaheim to meet, commune and work with, and learn from the Lord or Lady Divine she wants to devote herself to in a much deeper way.

 

The purpose of a Vanic Priestessly Initiate's travels as a Sacred Voyage Lady is to allow her soul to mature into an appreciation of what it means to truly walk as a Vanic Priestess.

 

Stage 5: Priestess Trainee

In this stage the Vanic Priestessly Initiate enrolls in a temple of the Vanir God or Goddess she wants to become a Priestess of and also chooses her Priestessly specialization such as scribe, healer, teacher, initiatress, Seiðkona, wisewoman, etc. etc.

 

As a Priestess Trainee the Vanic Priestessly Initiate makes several more voyages to Vanaheim, may take independently part in sexual rites and rituals, and may also on her own preside over rites, rituals and ceremonies. A Priestess Trainee is assigned a senior Priestess as a mentor-promoter.

 

Stage 6: Priestess Initiate

This phase of the initiation process culminates in ordination as a Vanic Priestess. The Vanic Priestessly Initiate is, with the assistance of her mentor-promoter, to go through thirteen different Rites of Ordination, all in accordance with the ways and personality of the deity she wishes to devote herself to.

 

If the aforesaid efforts of the Vanic Priestessly Initiate please the Lord or Lady Divine he or she shall, in accordance with the provisions of the Ancient Covenant, appear to affirm the Vanic Priestessly Initiate as a Priestess of him or hers, exchange the solemn vows of sacred fealthy, and confer the full Priestessly Powers upon his or her devotee.

 

Stage 7: Priestess

After the affirmation, the exchange of the solemn vows of sacred fealthy, and the conferment of the full Priestessly Powers, the Vanic Priestessly Initiate has become a full-fledged Priestess and shall serve, while walking her own Priestessly Path, the Vanic God or Goddess she has devoted herself to at a temple or as a wandering Priestess.

Your High Holiness,

 

Allow me to say that this brings back many memories from days long gone by when I was a Fledgeling at the Vanadís Temple in the Royal City of Freyushavn in Freyja's Necklace. :)

Most interesting to read! I would like to ask what "sexual rituals" mean. Could a Priestess please explain? :)

 

A High Priestesss wishes to convey to the Lord Jonathan that to the Vanafolk sex is the Supreme Sacred Act and in appreciation by the Vanic Lords and Ladies Divine it has always been far above all other Acts of Worship for being given sexual energy by the worshipping Vanakarls and Vanakvinner through sexual rituals contributes massively to their power. This because of the fact that sexual energy is the most potent form of energy by a country mile for it creates and sustains life.

 

Sexual rituals are rituals in which sexual energy is raised for the purpose of using the sacred and magical energy of sexual arousal or orgasm to reach a desired result. Such result can be: promoting peace and tranquillity, contributing to the power of a God or Goddess, wellness, healing, or any other good (spiritual) goal.

 

Those sexual rituals can be performed solitary, in pairs, or in groups. They include, but are not limited to, vagina worship, sexual intercourse, erotic dancing, penis worship, Töfranudd and other forms of sexual massage, erotic yoga, and sexual meditation and visualization.

 

For those of you who worry about pregnancies or diseases, we have got a special spell to determine whether it is safe to engage in sexual activity with a person. If such spell is cast directed to a woman, a glowing nimbus of blue light will appear around her when it is safe to have sex with her i.e. she is not her her fertile period and she does not carry any STDs or communicable diseases; the nimbus will be green if the Lady is healthy, but in the fertile days of her moon cycle; in the event that a female is not safe for sexual activity, the nimbus will be red. When the spell is cast towards a male the glowing nimbus of light will either be blue (safe) or red (not safe).

A High Priestess wonders whether the provided explanation is sufficient and clear to the Lord Jonathan?
