   =>Nid Cursing

The nid curse is the verbal part of making a nidstang. You should not do this part until you have already carved the nidhing pole. On the pole you should have the name of the person(s) you wish to direct this at, as well as how they have wronged you and how you wish for the spell to effect them. Keep in mind, the nid/nidhing pole works by upsetting the landwights around the person- be careful not to drive them away!

Once youve done the carving, you are going to relax yourself- focusing on the person for whom you intend this spell to effect. As you visualize them, begin softly chanting and otherwise coming to a meditative state. Now begin reading from the pole, and stating the things you have carved: I set this nidstand against (insert persons name), for (insert reasons) and I hope that it shall (insert outcomes you desire)

Move in front of the pole and raise your hands slightly. This is the time when you call upon the deities you wish to help you make the curse more effective. Hel is a common one. Heres an example of how you would call a deity for this: I call upon Thor, to grant me his strength. Weild your hammer in my name and my defense! Be my protector and do this curse for me!. This part is optional.

When you feel you have done the verbal curse, prick one of your fingers and gently rub the blood against the teeth on the pole. This will wake it and set it in action. Then, simply turn it to face the desired direction and leave it for as long as you desire.

Heres an example of a nid from the Saga of Egil Skallagrimsson:

Here I place this nidstang (curse-pole), and turneth it against King Eirik and Queen Gunnhild - turneth I this against all the gnomes and little people of the land, that they may all be lost, not finding their homes, until they drive King Eirik and Queen Gunnhild out of the country.
