How do you draw abundance into your life?
A question as old as coaching or witchcraft.
Do I have the ultimate answer to it? Probably not but know some stuff that works for me and backfires on me whenever I forget it.
Before we get technical, abundance requires attitude.
First an attitude of gratitude. We can be thankful for the things we have from the roof over our head, over our loved ones to the fact that we woke up this morning able to see the world with our eyes and walk around on our feet.
Second, abundance requires an attitude of wanting something out of life and from other people. Defining that “something” and keeping it fair and reasonable in the sense of balanced scales is an art in itself but wanting something (back) is essential. It is important but not enough to let the universe know that you are willing to give something. It is also important to let the universe know that you want something back in return. What sounds like a no-brainer is more difficult for many of us than you might think. I was – and sometimes I still am – one of these people who forget to ask for a fair reward.
If you don´t want to receive either consciously or subconsciously you are f***ed up in the abundance game. That relates to self-worth. Words of wisdom from someone who spent nearly five decades figuring that out.
Now let´s talk a bit about spirituality and shamanism in the tradition of our Northern European and Central European ancestors, the Vikings and Germanic tribes. If you read my blogs or visit my website
You already know that a lot of my spiritual practice revolves around the runes of the Elder Futhark. For those who have not read my blogs or visited my website here is a very quick birds-eye view introduction.
Runes are containers of universal power and energy. They have absolutely nothing to do with Nazis or supremacist crap. If you are a fan of such ideas I ask you very politely to immediately leave this page and never come back. I have the family history to be absolutely disgusted by such ideas and do not support them in any way. Thank you!
If you are a reasonable and decent human being and have a suspicious feeling about runes, let me assure you once again that they have absolutely nothing to do with right-wing ideas. They are pure wisdom and power from times immortal, perhaps from the days when humans started to form coherent speech.
In the Northern tradition the rune that governs abundance and wealth in all forms be it spiritual growth or more down-to-earth money and gold is FEHU. The patron of this rune is Freya, whom the Vikings and Germanic tribes worshipped as a goddess of love, abundance, and warfare alike. Freya is a great sorceress and warrior queen and she is even greater when it comes to self-worth. She is the golden sorceress in every sense of the word and FEHU is the rune that encompasses all these qualities and some more.
So before we move on to the practical ways of how to draw abundance into our lives, let´s dwell a moment longer on the essential thoughts required to make it happen. They are really important to lay the foundation for that castle in the sky that we are about to build together.
Perhaps the single most important quality of FEHU is that it must flow. If we hoard abundance, in other words, if we get greedy and cling to our possessions – both material and immaterial – like Ebenezer Scrooge we pervert the idea of wealth and abundance. If we want abundance in our life and keep it flowing steadily you have to pass it on to others in some way as well. For example, I consider my spiritual teachings including this pamphlet here a form of passing on Fehu and keeping it flow.
The gratitude I wrote about earlier is another way. That is why the daily gratitude lists you surely heard or read about are really a good idea. It is a liberating feeling to write them down. It can really take a weight off of your chest. Gratitude lists are one way to signal to the universe that you want to keep abundance circulating within creation. Welfare, donations, social work, and generally helping others is also a way to keep the abundance flowing. Do what you can with reason and remember: “You can heal them if you bleed” So again, do only what you can. If you currently seek abundance from a financially challenging position then gratitude lists might be the point to start from.
Abundance is essentially the feeling and knowledge (both in the head and in the heart) that there is enough for all of us. If you are struggling with a business see if you can adopt a stance where you can feel and believe that there are enough customers out there for you and all your competitors.
Another key component of abundance (or manifestation) is trust in the universe / the divine / into karma – whatever you want to call it.
Yes, we are definitely called out to forge our destiny and be co-creators of our fate. However, co-creation means just that. A joint venture. Once you have done your best to achieve your goals, once you have said everything and done everything possible stop controlling what you can´t control. Flow with the tide and let the universe do its thing. And yes, I know it’s difficult but there is no point about being a control freak with creation.
In the words of martial arts legend Bruce Lee “Be like water, my friend.” Adapt to the shape of the riverbed and flow with it while doing the best you can, that which dep down in your gut feels right.
So you have gratitude checked and you have trust and adaptability checked.
Now check te4h box that you are a divine being “made in Thy image” and that you are entitled to a glorious life. Yes, it´s true. We are divine and we have the freakin´ obligation as well as the right to let that divine light shine instead of hiding in the dark corners of misery. If you seek abundance it is because you deserve it, because it is our natural right. We were more often than not raised in a wy to make ourselves small. But each of us is a spark from the fire of creation That is why I call myself the Firestealer and I stopped apologizing for it a long time ago. Like gratitude that is so liberating. I invite you to steal your own fire back above and beyond your financial goals. They are fine. Money makes us sleep easier but we are far bigger than that. Abundance is far bigger and that is why there is no end to it.
Sit with that for a while. Once you think you can check that box as well, you got a pretty good starting point for abundance.
Here´s a little teaser of what I have done for myself and others and what I would love to do with you if we work together.
FEHU – spiritual and energy work with the FEHU rune that is the very symbol of wealth and abundance. You can learn to work with that rune – actually any rune for that matter – to create wealth and value on many levels.
RICHES OF THE EARTH – This is straight-forward old school European witchcraft – a ritual to align you with spirits of wealth and abundance
