Freyja’s Fridays - Vordr

Vordr or “Wardens” are guardian spirits otherwise known as a wraith. They dwell beneath the roots of a families Vardtrad or “Warden tree,” situated in the yard. Usually a linden, ash or elm tree. At times, the warden could reveal itself as a small light or as the shape (hamr) of the person. The perception of another person's warden could cause a physical sensation such as an itching hand or nose, as a foreboding or an apparition. The warden could arrive before the actual person, which someone endowed with fine senses might perceive. The warden of a dead person could also become a revenant, haunting particular spots or individuals.
