Fornekja - Icelandic Natural Witchcraft

Fornekja, which means "old one", is Icelandic witchcraft and one form of traditional Icelandic magic. Specially, fornekja is a natural type of witchcraft linked to the idea of having "deep archaic roots in time" which confer operative magical power to the practitioner.

Fornekja - this is the type of witchcraft I most truly practice. This is the kind of witch I am. I don't yet know the Icelandic word for a female practitioner of this type of witchcraft, so if anyone reading my blog does know, please share.

According to Roots for Real (one lab where I had one of my mtDNA ancestral genetic motherline tests performed) found 16 matches for my mtDNA - one of them was in Iceland.

Ancestral genetic motherline match for me in Iceland.

I've shared many poems and stories on this blog pertaining to my preincarnate (archaic) memories which stretch back to the ginnungagap (magically charged void in Scandinavian cosmoloy). This is one of those poems.

and reflecting then
on the thought, shaking my tail
vowing remembrance

of my own story
through the fire river around
the world I came in

remembering back
before, how I can I tell it
my whole story, how

contemplating how
feeling this what, suddenly
who, is here with me

asks from the head who
around in circles I turn
unwinding myself

turning turning I
looking I pause to do what
who is here with me

in this darkest place
cool water in night, winding
around me your voice

spiraling about
binding me up speaking some
what say you to me

I trying turning
looking pausing to hear you
what say who to me

where have you rested
in wait for me, only me
you waiting for me

struggling down through worlds
into edges of edges
hearing your voice call

me into being
binding me about voicing
here I am, I am
