There are others in our religion who "sell" their Shamanic services for a price. Others who will read, or teach you to read, the Runes for a fee, or will certify you through a course to become a Godi or Godia for money. Once again I wonder how many of these places truly believe that what they are doing is the Gods work, and how many are just trying to make money. It is not something that can be identified easily, because it is hidden within the hearts and minds of the ones making the profit. Am I judging these individuals here today ? No, it is not my duty to cast a finger of blasphemy against these individuals. It is the Gods and Goddesses who will judge them in the end. For they know every thought and every intention that people have no matter how deep they try to hide the lie. They are the ultimate arbitrator.
Just for fun the other day I added up how much I have made off of our Gods and Goddesses. I figure that I have lost about 2000 dollars, buying a computer, paying for my site, my security software, paper, ink cartridges, research, etc... This does not even take into consideration the 1000's of hours I have spent the past two years writing my articles. BUT THAT IS WHY IT IS CALLED "SERVICE" TO THE GODS !!!! I am " paying " them back for all that I have received from them in my life, by doing what They have asked of me. And all they want from me is to help those who are looking for information and guidance about our religion and our culture ! There is no money involved in this relationship, just the love and respect we have between us.
Go with Odin's wisdom, Fryeja's love, and Thor's protection !
