magickal methodology

The diverse denominations which abound within the Northern Traditions are but varying aspects of a solid religion foremost in and of themselves. Yet they all seem to be comprised of basic similarities which are the practical application of honour and self-worth. Such diverse aspects as superstition and prayer or what are known to us as "respect" and "bidden" as well as the use of magical skills are no less sacred.
It is through the actions of giving or "offering out" solely through the joy which it brings unto others wherein one finds a feeling beyond description. Yet, it is through the use of magicks wherein one seeks to gain for purely personal needs, be they for oneself or for others, which none the less requires a steadfast and stout heart.
In short, there are two distinctive styles within Northern magicks, that of Galdr and that of Seidr. The foremost being along the lines of studied esoteric sciences and disiplines, the later more along the lines of inherant abilities and shamanic practices. The general guide below conveniently provides a few known examples of each.
