    "Saddle your soul and let it ride
    With blind eyes, you’ll surely find the way
    Draw your breath in – let your thoughts fly
    Let it out slowly – on winds you’ll ride

    The spindle spins, the thoughts entwine revolving sight
    The enchantment song lures the soul from its shape
    Out through the door, through the cobweb-veil
    Out borne on bare feet, a heavy burden

    Out in your innermost, a steep trail ahead
    High upon Healing-Peak, nine maidens await

    At the first stop where paths cross, you pause
    Leave clothes behind and all you own
    Where you are heading, they’ll be of no use
    The burden lightens, but heavy is the trail ahead

    At the second stop where paths cross, you pause
    Leave time behind, and weighty thoughts
    Where you are headed, they’ll be of no use
    The burden lightens, but heavy is the trail ahead

    At the third stop where paths cross, you pause
    Leave fears behind, let fall all masks
    Where you are headed, they’ll be of no use
    The burden lightens, but heavy is the trail ahead

    Naked at the top, the mountain knows you
    North waves an eagle-wing, the wind it draws
    The shadow-women dance about you
    They sing for you, chanting powerful runes

    Wounds and sickness
    Of marrow and blood
    Of meat and bone
    Of flesh and skin
    into weather and wind
    you fade
    I summon you into the mountain blue
    Where neither sun nor moonshine can reach you
    I summon you into the forest where no one dwells
    and out to the sea where no man rows
    Deep beneath an earthbound stone
    out of harm’s way
    Run through the rivers
    and roll with the ocean tides

    Into weather and wind you fade
    Neither sun nor moonshine can reach you
    Sink in the sea where no man rows
    Run through the rivers
    and roll with the ocean tides

    Healing-mountain stands for eternity
    It comforts the sick and the sore
    Each and every one who assails that rock
    Will find their lifelong ailment cured

    Leave it behind on Healing-Peak
    Where the rivers and streams
    dance northwards and down
    That mountain mends all those who climb"
    Wardruna - Lyfjaberg lyrics + English translation

    When will you climb the Healing Mountain?

    Very nice video. No mountains to climb here but just losing yourself in the natural world for even a short time is healing.
