Purpose: to call upon the Norse gods
for prophecies revealed through immediate visions (sometimes these
arrive later in the dream state).
Fill a cauldron or large, black iron pot half-full of fresh water. Add a
handful of Buttercup or Marigold petals. Light incense of Sage (also used
for protection) or burn some Thyme. Stir the cauldron/pot gently three
times while chanting:
Into the threads of time I cast my thoughts,
To catch a glimpse of what will be!
O' Gods of Asgard, bring into my mind,
The lovely gift of prophecy!
Look deep into the cauldron and wait for visions to unfold. You don't
request insight into any particular matter using this method.
