This is how I’ve sometimes seen Loki in dreams and a few trance visions.

An interesting article:
”Loki, the Vätte, and the Ash Lad: A Study Combining Old Scandinavian and
Late Material.” by Eldar Heide, in “Viking and Medieval Scandinavia” 7 (2011); pp. 63–106.
“This article argues that post-medieval material is a key to understanding the enigmatic Old Norse god Loki. It seems that there were two Lokis: the mythological character and a vätte ‘domestic spirit’ living under or by the fireplace. The mythic character derived from this vätte, via the figure of the youth by the fireplace, parallel to the fairy tale Ash Lad who extensively overlaps with the Loki of myths. Loki and the Ash Lad are both indispensable super-providers yet unacceptable to the establishment; they are essentially ‘semi-otherworlders’. Hence there is no real contradiction between their beneficial and
I’ve met Jormungand briefly in a trance-vision last year.
For some reason I began to sing in my mind “row, row, row your boat” (in the Norwegian version, it’s about rowing across the North Sea).
I suddenly saw a small boat on the sea, and then Jormungand appeared. He undulated His body and made the little boat rock. He seemed to really like that song.
Then I was standing on a cliff, and He put His large head in front of me. I placed my hands on His snout and swayed from side to side, and He tipped His head from side to side; we were “dancing” together, while I continued to sing the song.
I heard this gurgling sound in my mind, and realised I was hearing Him laugh.
I am changing, very slowly. I feel I am becoming more sensitive to energies.
A few days ago, late in the evening, as I sat out on my balcony having a cig, I suddenly felt like I was being noticed and then watched. It felt like I could feel the spirits of the trees I was looking at, and a slow stirring of the landspirit.
The next day I had a feeling of a thin connection to the treespirits and the landspirit; there is a feeling of being watched, and a feeling of hushed anticipation. The latter I think is connected with the first rain of the year, and a slight feeling of spring in the air.
It’s like I can sense the spring energies; I feel like I am also waking up after the winter.
Loki has begun to send energies into my body again, like He did before I had my breakdown and got ill. It’s primarily the root chakra and third eye chakra He’s working on now. Sometimes I can feel energies in my heart and solar plexus chakras, too.
Loki is being very gentle with me, for which I am very grateful; I am still fragile after my breakdown.
Sometimes things feel a little surreal, like I’m not completely here. It feels like I have a toe in the spirit-realm.
As touched upon in the Kemetic Round Table article I wrote concerning ritual purity, we all deal with feelings of inadequacy in our religious and personal lives. At times, we don't feel pure enough, or "good" enough. We don't feel like we're doing enough. Something. Whatever it is . . . "It just isn't enough. Look at that person over there; their life and religious practice are so shiny.
This is what Loki looked like in a dream I had back in January 2011, where I welcomed Him into my little house, which represented my life and my self.
He didn’t have pointy ears, though, and less jewellery. This is one of my favourite images of Him, so I guess that’s why He choose this look.
