It psychological suppositions is however the same: seidhr is based upon the conception of the souls working at distance, its potential possibility to emancipate from the body and in a materialized figure make its actors will and intent set to work.
Most of the magicians were women and seidhr was on principle regarded as a feminine art (in myth this is expressed as Freja as the one who taught the art of Seidhr, to Oden).
Seidhr was often used to read in the memory of nature, the akasha chronicle, and to see what karmic forces that lead to a man's current life situation Seidhr is not of ecstatic character because the seidhr couldn't go on "soul travels".

Seidhr is generally connected with the Gods and Goddesses, called the Vanir, and especially with Freyja, whose name is really the title "Lady".
Seidhr is connected to the concept of "Chaos" in the sense that the theory upon which Seidhr works is very similar to that upon which Chaos Magic works.
Seidhr is a magic of this world, for gaining effects in this world on the level plane of existence.

 He Seidh/She Seidh-On the Metaethics of Oracular Seidhr
The term "seidhr" has been used primarily in the late twentieth century America to denote the oracular practices of Northern European spirituality, for which the proper term would actually be "spae" or "spá" craft.
Seidhr, then, generally denotes those acts of oracular magick practiced traditionally by women, although increasing modern interest and practice by men is well noted.
Seidhr, properly practiced and fail-safed can be as true a blessing to those whom it serves as any ecstatic practice.

 Wat is Seid? (Seidhr)
Nu dat is vastgesteld dat het word zonder twijfel behoort tot de Oud Noorse taal, is de volgende vraag hoe we de betekenis zo precies als mogelijk is kunnen vaststellen.
De kunst van het seid is niet geleend van het ‘echte’ shamanisme van de Lappen uit de Artische streken, die trommel-dansen en cataleptische trances gebruiken, maar het is meer ontstaan vanuit een — meest waarschijnlijk Scythische-Sarmatische — zuidoosterlijke subarctische 'shamanisme op kleine schaal'.
In de tijd van de Vinkingen werd de noordelijke vorm van seid (IJslands: seidhr, oorsprong onbekend) bijna uitsluitend uitgevoerd door vrouwen, en soms door vrouwen en mannen samen.

 Seidhr for Spirit Rescue
Those seriously interested in learning oracular seidhr may contact Diana Paxson at Box 5521, Berkeley CA 94705 USA or d.studebake1@genie.com; and by the way, she will be doing a seidhr workshop soon right here in Lexington, Kentucky (probably in Spring 1998).
In the Summer of 1996 I had the occasion to adapt oracular seidhr to help a number of ghosts pass on from a local 200-year-old farmhouse which has been in the same family for over 200 years.
This is seidhr for spirit rescue, or as I've been known to call it, "seidhr for de-ghosting." My guide while I was in seidhr-trance and going into Hela's realm was a local Neopagan psychic and trance medium whom I had previously briefed in seidhr techniques.

 seidr
Seidhr is Wyrd consciousness, or the penetration of profound consciousness - the exploration of transpersonal reality - a science or means ‘to know or understand’ experiential awakening.
Seidhr is mistakenly linked to the word ‘seethe’ and is sometimes mentioned in regards to contacting-raising ‘powers’ or energies that appear to facilitate fjolkyngi (such as spae or galdr); 3).
Seidhr can be seen in Old Norse speja, “to see; to speak; to sing”; according to Grimm (III:1047) this may also mean “to seethe.” Relatedly, Old English spyrian, “to investigate”, seems to have evolved into French seance.

In the druidical world of the Taelshore, the Seidhr lay dead to rest, make sure their spirits are transported safely into the afterworld, and fend off dangers that come from the Spirit World or the Fey.
Seidhr are atuned to the spirit world and may purchase feats with the Spirit descriptor.
Seidhr encounter the fey in the wilds, are familair with their nature, and may purchase feats with the Fey descriptor.

 Seidhr Index   (Site not responding. Last check: )
To be more specific, for many, Hrafnar's Oracular Seidhr and other uses of trancework for divinatory/information-gathering purposes is properly labelled "Spae." I use the label "Seidhr" primarily because Hrafnar does, based on its use to describe the Seidh-woman and Seidh-session in Erik's Saga.
Oracular Seidhr is the use of trancework to gain information from the Dead, from the Norns and other Deities, and at times from other Beings of Norse Heathenism, such as Landwights, Elves, and Disir.
I urge those who feel a call to this to think long and hard about it first, do their research and self-evaluation very carefully beforehand, and be aware of possible health and legal consequences.

 Multicultural Polytheistic Hearth - excoboard.com
Seidhr is the name for practices the Vanir brought to the Aesir after the war between them; seidhr was carried by Freya and was, by and large, considered a woman's area, as runes were considered a mans, though some crossover could and did happen.
Discussing this with another group that does seidhr, I discovered I was as unnerved by their attitudes as I had been by the dog & pony show.
My focus with seidhr is, and I hope I don't come of as egotistical here, to get skilled enough that I can ask the gods their stories.

 Magic
Another important type of magic is called seidhr, which seems to have been a "shamanic" tradition within ancient Asatru.
We know that Freya was a skilled practitioner of seidhr and that she taught it to Odin.
Although today most persons exploring seidhr are women, there is no such prejudice against men interested in it.

Rezension “Seidhr Handbuch” in der Zeitschrift “Herdfeuer”, Heft 14, 4.
Hier wird auch schon deutlich, warum sich das Seidhr Handbuch von anderen Büchern ähnlicher Couleur unterscheidet: Stucken versucht strikt zwischen wissenschaftlich-historischen Grundlagen und darüber hinausgehende Erweiterungen und Anlehnungen an andere magische Traditionen zu trennen.
Anhand der Quellen, insbesondere der Sagas, wird das rekonstruiert, was unsere Vorfahren unter Seidhr verstanden.

 Freyja: Goddess of Magic
In addition to shape-shifting, she also was the goddess of seidhr and could magically control fire.
It is interesting to note that it was not, presumably, Freyja's liking for gold itself which so stirred the Aesir, but perhaps the intensity of her avarice, or desire.
Davidson (op cit), discusses the Volva, a seeress or sooth-sayer, who entered into a divinatory trance at festivals, and was able to answer questions put to her by those present.

 Seiðr, Spaecraft and Leechcraft--Beliefnet.com
seidhr, by contrast, is the performence of some action.
So, like the rest of my family, I assume they are interested in what I'm up to and happy to lend a hand when the can, even if I haven't asked for it.
In the translation of the Voluspa I'm looking at, it says "she performed seid, wherever she could, she performed seid in a trance." I think that translation supports the same interpretation.

A lot of her analysis seemed focused on how she reconciled the differences between herself as a heathen and as an academic.
This is not an instructional book, but an examination of different viewpoints, and as such it is invaluable to anyone interested in the subject.
I bought this book out of hope, and have been left disillusioned at the future of seidhr if individuals like Blain are at the reins.

 Wights
The swan-coat seems very similar in description to Freya's falcon-coat and the entire issue may be something related to the practice of seidhr.
Freya is called the great Dis and there may be some linkage here to her position as a seidhrwoman, but the reference is sufficiently brief to remain cryptic, and open to different interpretations.
We know from the sagas that Seidhr was involved with talking to various spirits (including the dead) and its possible that this is the source of Freya's name.

 Seiðr, Spaecraft and Leechcraft--Beliefnet.com
What would be considered "sorcery" and how does that fit in with seidr and spaecraft?
myself, i see this as one of the things that distinguishes seidhr from shamanism.
i think this list is fair game as a place to discuss magic practices from the same cultures as seidhr practices.
