I’ve been reworking my article on fylgias. What is a fylgia? “Fylgia” is a fun Old Norse concept which can indicate either a guardian spirit (for a family or an individual), or the shape a person’s spirit takes while traveling. Some people have one or the other; I have both. Though they seem to be uncommon nowadays, my personal opinion is that more people have one than are aware that they have one.
Fylgias are highly useful and all-around cool things to have. I’m blessed to have become aware of mine, and I wish everyone else all the luck in finding and connecting with theirs. Consider it a rightful part of your inheritance.
