Fornekja, which means "old one," is an authentic traditional ancient Old World European (reaching back in time into the remote Messinian Age of prehistoric Europe when Graecopithecus freybergi roamed Europe), Northern Old Germanic, Scandinavian, Northwestern European Isles (especially the Orkneys and Western Isles) and Icelandic witchcraft. As described in the folklore of my ancestors, Fornekja is a natural type of witchcraft which partakes of a stream continuous consciousness and memory; this continuity of consciousness and memory are communicated to us in tradition as having "archaic roots in deep time". As tradition informs us, this condition confers operative spiritual power to the practitioner (and is passed down the ancestral bloodline). This type of ancient witchcraft is the inheritance of the Völva (a witch in the manner of old world ancestral tradition). Initiation as a witch into this particular kind of witchcraft, namely Fornekja, comes through one's Ancestral Folksoul, one's Ancestors, the Master Witches of one's People.
I am a witch in the particular tradition of witchcraft known as Fornekja, by ancestral birthright and through an authentic spiritual inheritance from my Ancestors. This spiritual inheritance flows through me through the organic ancestral 'River of Blood' eternally linking the generations of my People throughout time. Fornekja is a witchcraft of essential being and eternal soul craft transcending lifetimes. Fornekja develops and evolves consciousness, fuels mastery of the mind, and catalyzes psychosynthesis. It's broader goal is evolution of the Tribe, the Folk.
