Private Blót

In order to make an offering to Eir for the sick or wounded person in your life, first pour yourself a horn (or glass) of mead or other beverage and say:

“Eir, goddess of healing, hail!
Goddess of mercy, hail!
Handmaiden of Frigga, hail!
Odin’s Valkyrie and she who is considered the best leech, hail!”

Drink some of the mead or beverage and pour some out into the bowl for Eir so that you may help her through this offering to help heal the person who needs it. Light the candle and say:

“Physician of the Gods, the Merciful One.
I ask you to speed medical healing, to speed the recovery of a person you overlooked be born—(insert the name of the person here).
I ask you to inspire the doctors to do no harm, and to do well in treating the one whom I pray for.
Inspire the doctors to have mercy, as you have mercy.
Their loved ones need your help, magic, skill, and healing.
Inspire (Name of person) whom I pray for to be patient and hopeful.
Hail Eir, Greatest Physician!”

Order or cook yourself a special meal. Give some of your food and drink to Eir with the thought of giving her the strength and energy she needs to heal, not just the person you performed this personal blot for, but all those others who need her gift.

Throughout the meal, think of it must require of her to heal others who need her blessings, to be a handmaiden to Frigga and devoted to healing. Pour some more mead or other beverage in a final simple thank you to Eir outside to a tree or a personal outside altar if you can and say:

“Spirits of the sky and the plentiful earth, spirits of running water and plants of field, forest, mountain, and ocean, ancestors of old and to the gods and goddesses: Accept this offering, my gift unto you.”
