Casting Directions for ‘Helheim Travels’
Begin by finding a quiet and dark place to relax. You do not want to be disturbed as you work. When this is discovered, sit in a comfy position and drape the dark cloth around you like a showl. Set the black candle to your left and the white candle into your right- then light both of these. Instantly light the incense as well set the bones inbetween both candles and sit back.
By working towards meditation/trance, start. An easy way to do this is to focus on a beat, or pay attention to your breathing. Breathe in for four counts, then exhale for four points. Continue this process until it’s all you are focused on. Let nothing else interfere with this state of mind. Breathe, exhale. Do this for roughly 10-20 minutes or until you think you are ready to proceed.
Feel yourself drift away from the body. As you travel elsewhere, begin to seek Hel and Helheim. Push forward, imagining a field. When you reach this area, call out to Hel or the spirits you wish to communicate with. Be cautious, but open as you proceed. Now imagine Hel or the ancestor/spirit you wish to communicate with. Picture a presence approaching yourself, and will yourself towards it. When you think that something is near, talk what it is you would like to understand or have questions about. One way of receiving the answers to your question would be to ask the spirit for a dream soon after you leave: The answers to these questions should come to you relatively fast. When you’re happy with this, thank the spirit that spoke to you and start to leave. Stretch yourself backward, leaving the field, and heading towards your body.
