It can be difficult to meet new people, but when you have Loki’s magic at your fingertips, you’ll win everyone over! Loki is the Norse trickster god and son of a frost giant. A powerful shape-shifter, he wasn’t afraid to celebrate his unique gifts and enjoyed playing tricks on the other deities.
CONFIDENCE CRISIS CONFIDENCE CRISIS SOLVE IT A couple of days before a social occasion, where you’re likely to meet new people, place a pinch of sunflower seeds in an ice cube mould. Fill the mould with water and freeze overnight. The seeds symbolise new friendships, and ice is often associated with this god, because of his frosty parentage. The following day, light a red candle and place the ice cube on a dish in front.
Say, ‘As this ice melts, so I melt each heart. People warm to me right from the start’. Once the ice has melted, you’ll have a pool of water and some seeds. Scatter them outside and say, ‘I sow the seeds of friendship, new bonds I make with ease’. TRICKSTER TIP If a bout of shyness hits while you’re out, repeat the affirmation from the ritual: ‘I sow the seeds of friendship, new bonds I make with ease’.
