30 Days, Day 2: Beliefs — Cosmology

As I’ll discuss later, my views on the cosmological layout of the universe are a working model rather than something that I set firmly in stone. So when I say “it is this way” it should be interpreted as “I have found this to be a useful model for what I have seen/experienced.”

I work predominantly a 9-world cosmological model arranged in the spiral pattern that Kaldera uses in his Pathwalker’s Guide to the Nine World.

I have seen attempts to map these to the three-worlds system employed but a lot of shamans and shamanic practitioners, but have not found a clean 9-3 mapping that I like for that.

Connecting all realms is what we term the astral plane. There may be other astral planes, but there is one that I frequently know that I work with.

The worlds are:

  • Asgard
  • Ljossalfheim
  • Vanaheim
  • Jotunheim
  • Midgard
  • Muspelheim
  • Svartalfheim
  • Niflheim
  • Helheim

There are also other realms that are connected to these or to the astral plane which I visit regularly, such as the Fay Lands.
