Eir ("mercy") is a Norse Goddess of Healing. She knew the secret powers of herbs, with which she could even resurrect the dead. Patroness of shadow workers, called on against sickness or injury. She gives both physical and psychic means of healing; shamanic healing, especially, falls into her realm. Eir is a companion of the goddess Frigga.
The Norns - Norse - govern fate, Urd - what has been, Verdandi - what is, Skuld - what is to come. They spin the threads and weave the tapestry of fate for each person's life. The length of the thread is the life span, even the Gods have their own threads but they are hidden. Everything is predetermined by destiny.
