Genetic Evidence of Anglo-Saxon Dominance in the British Isles

An interesting article which demonstrates the dominance of Anglo-Saxon and thus Germanic ancestry in the British Isles. My readers are advised to ignore the almost mandatory (these days) politically correct comments by the article author.

An Esoteric Understanding of the Einheriar and Walhall



For a long time I have pondered on the true meaning of Walhalla as the way the concept is presented in the Eddas makes very little sense when taken literally. This is a timely reminder that great truths are normally obfuscated in sacred literature to ensure that they are only properly understood by the Initiate. This is common to most religions which have both an exoteric and an esoteric interpretation. It is even the case in Christianity. I recall many years ago-about 32 years ago I attended a Church of England Bible study group and the Curate who led it made the ridiculous statement that "Jesus taught in parables to make it easier for the people to understand."  I found his statement incredulous and told him so, pointing out the words of his master in Mark 4:11:

"And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables: that seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them." (KJV/AV-the underlining is mine for emphasis.)

Only the Christian fails to understand this which is probably an indication that at the time of my spiritual search in the 1970s and 80s I was never truly a Christian. Christianity was simply the starting point of my Faustian quest, having been born in a nominally Christian country. Eventually I heard and responded to the Call of the Blood which is one and the same as the Call of the Gods for our Gods in a sense reside in our blood, in our DNA (represented by the Anglo-Saxon Ing Rune) and in our Collective (racial) Unconscious: the Blood Memory.

From a magical perspective it is significant that at any one time Jesus had to have 12 disciples-or Initiates. Those who are familiar with the New Testament will recall that with the betrayal of Jesus by Judas Iscariot and his suicide he was replaced by Matthias who was chosen by lot-generally regarded as a heathen practice by the Church! So there had to be 12 + 1 (The +1 is Jesus, whether on earth or ascended). In effect this was a coven of sorts. I fully appreciate that there is a zodiacal interpretation as well.

Going back to my argument regarding parables; Jesus taught in parables so that only he who had the spiritual capacity to understand would do so. The message behind the parables was never intended for mass consumption, contrary to the teaching of the Church. When challenged by me the Curate had no answer! The reason why I am recalling this episode for my readers is by way of illustration in terms of how we should approach the Eddas. The greatest danger is that we take them as a literal revealed truth in the way the Jews, Christians and Muslims regard their scriptures for this is the way of dogma and spiritual sterility. THE truth resides in our blood and although we may lament the near destruction of our lore by Christian zealots and traitors (frequently kings and tribal chieftains) the lore may be recovered from our Blood Memory so nothing is ever permanently lost! It can be recovered from our collective psychic hard drive! Furthermore we must understand that underneath many of the stories related in the Eddas there are spiritual truths that can only be understood by Initiates who figuratively have crossed the Bifrost Bridge and returned to Midgarth.

Returning to the issue of Walhalla which as an aside I have mentioned before is an anagram for Allahlaw just as Wulf Ingessunu has demonstrated that Ragnarok is an anagram for Korangar (spear of the Koran). These two revelations are an indication that we are approaching the end of this Kali Yuga and the revelation of Widar Wodenssunu, Der Starke von Oben. Let us read again what is revealed about Walhalla in the Eddas:

"Five hundred doors and forty,
           I think there are in Valhall;

           eight hundreds of warriors will go together from one

          door

          when they go to fight the wolf.

         "Five hundred daises and forty,

          so I think Bilskirnir has in all;

          of all those halls which I know to be roofed,

          my son's I think is the greatest." (Grimnismal 23-24, Elder/Poetic Edda, Larrington translation)


"Five hundred doors, and forty eke, I think, are in Valhall. Eight hundred Einheriar will at once from each door go when they issue with the wolf to fight.

           Five hundred floors, and forty eke, I think, has Bilskirnir with its windings. Of all the roofed

           houses that I know, is my son's the greatest." (Grimnismal 23-24, Thorpe translation)


The 'son' who Odin refers to is of course Thor and Bilskirnir is His hall. Bilskirnir has 540 floors whilst Valhall has 540 doors. I have discussed the significance of the numbers 540 and 800 in earlier articles but I intend to revisit the issue in the future as there is more to reflect on and examine. The Einheriar are Woden's elect 'warriors' but I use the term guardedly. We need to remember that the myth of the Einheriar and Valhall was framed in the post-Viking age and accords to the cultural norms of that period. Odin had gained a warlike aspect and had developed from the earlier Woden/Wodan. Thus there is likely to be a certain amount of distortion in the Eddas, especially as they were compiled by Christian or Christianised scribes.

The Einheriar are specially selected fighters who serve Odin, having been selected by Him to reside with Him in the celestial abode of Valhall, which may be interpreted as 'hall of the slain/dead' and/or 'hall of the chosen'. The two are not necessarily mutually exclusive as when He chooses us He blesses us with death which is merely a portal to a higher realm of existence. Let us see what the Eddas have to say about the activities of the Einheriar:

"Odin is called All-father, for he is father of all gods. He is also called Val-father [father of the slain], since all those who fall in battle are his adopted sons. He assigns them places in Val-hall and Vingolf, and they are then known as Einheriar." (Gylfaginning, Younger/Prose Edda, Faulkes translation).

"Odin is named Alfadir (All-father), because he is the father of all the gods, and also Valfadir (Choosing Father), because he chooses for his sons all of those who fall in combat. For their abode he has prepared Valhalla and Vingolf, where they are called Einheriar (Heroes or Champions)." (Blackwell translation)

The Blackwell translation expresses Odin's name or function quite well-'Choosing Father'. He chooses His servants but they should not be viewed as warriors in the literal sense of the term. That is the exoteric interpretation which we will leave to our brethren, the Odinists! To us, folkish esoteric Wodenists it should mean something slightly different. We are His Einheriar and have been so for countless centuries, returning to Midgarth to fulfil His will. We know that we belong to Him for we are AWARE; we have AWOKEN. An Einheriar should and must be aware of their mission and purpose in this life or they simply are not chosen by All-Father. We are not warriors as a superficial understanding of the term implies, ie fighters with sword or gun etc but esoteric fighters. As servants of Woden we use esoteric and magical means.

Let us look further at the activities of the Einheriar:

"All the Einheriar fight in Odin's courts
          every day;

          they choose the slain and ride from the battle;

          then they sit the more at peace together." (Vafthrudnismal 41, Elder/Poetic Edda, Larrington translation)


"All the Einheriar in Odin's halls each day together fight; the fallen they choose, and from the conflict ride; beer with the Aesir drink, of Saehrimnir eat their fill, then sit in harmony together." (Vafthrudnismal 41, Thorpe translation)

Logically, superficially verse 41 makes no sense unless and until we apply an esoteric understanding. Once dead the Einheriar cannot die and rise again each day and fulfils little purpose until we interpret the falling and arising as a metaphor for the repeated incarnation of the Initiate in Midgarth which after all as one of the 9 worlds is surely part of the 'courts' or 'halls' of Woden? We incarnate repeatedly and follow the Listian formula: Arising-Becoming-Passing Away to New Arising. A single lifetime is insufficient for us to fulfil the work and obligations granted to us by Woden. We fight but in an esoteric sense as did for instance the Master Miguel Serrano, who should be a model for us to emulate. To suggest that all those who have ever died in a physical battle will reside in Walhall is ridiculous for the following reasons:

.Millions have fallen in battle over millennia!

.Walhalla has no place for those who are not biologically children of the Gods, ie Teutons or Aryans at the very least.

.Can one imagine a Christian or a Muslim warrior being accepted into or willing to reside in the hall of a heathen deity?

No, we must apply an esoteric understanding when examining the Eddas and not take them literally as do the slaves of the monotheistic Abrahamic religions.
   




Parliament Broke its Own Rules-UnPC Petitions on Immigration and Israel Not Debated

Parliament breaks its own rules and prevents debate on immigration despite a petition signed by 463,501 UK citizens! The threshold for debate in the House of Commons is 100,000 signatures. So much for western 'democracy' which has at its heart the oppression of the native European populations and the flooding of our lands with millions of unwanted immigrants.

https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/107516


Just in case any of my readers doubted the iron grip that Zionism has on western 'democracies' the following petition was not debated either:


https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/105446


The following petition was even rejected by Parliament which concerned "Protect Free Speech and our right to criticize Israel without fear of punishment."


https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/128949


The following petition about Israel was also rejected with a similar weak excuse "Suspend military aid to Israel until Human Rights Abuses fully investigated."


https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/111367


A petition calling upon the unfair imprisonment of a Palestinian child by Israel was likewise rejected:
"Free 14 Year Old Ahmad Manasrah From Israeli Prison."


https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/129959


A petition calling for making Israel accountable for its war crimes was rejected: "Make israel accountable for war crimes and crimes against humanity."


https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/107625


The 'Mother of all Parliaments' will not even discuss the ongoing Isreali holocaust of the Palestinians:
"Stop the holocaust in Palestine".


https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/130589


My readers will note a pattern emerging here. Not only will Parliament not debate issues regarding immigration despite hundreds of thousands of people signing these petitions when it comes to Israel they will not even consider a debate and reject the petition before it is launched and the typical excuse is "It’s not clear what the petition is asking the UK Government or Parliament to do.
We can't accept your petition in its current form as it does not call for a clear action from the UK Government and Parliament." This is despite the petition being very clear what it expects Parliament to do!

"THE UK MUST BOYCOTT ISRAEL UNTIL IT COMPLIES WITH INTERNATIONAL LAW"


https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/123451


Parliament also refuses to impeach Blair for war crimes: "Impeach Tony Blair and make him stand trial for the illegal war on Iraq."


https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/159516


Clearly we cannot expect parliamentary 'democracy' to safeguard the interests of the indigenous populations of these islands.

An Interesting Article on the Aryan Origins of European Fairy Tales

A fascinating article on the Proto-Indo-European (Aryan) origins of European fairy tales:

http://www.ancient-origins.net/news-general/brothers-grimm-story-proven-right-many-fairy-tales-stem-ancient-oral-traditions-005220?nopaging=1

This article with the table attached to it gives detailed analysis on the types of fairy tales that have survived in specific Indo-European language groups, thus providing supportive evidence (should anyone need it!) of the Aryan theorem.

The original academic article may be found on this link:

http://rsos.royalsocietypublishing.org/content/3/1/150645#F4

How important it is that we teach these fairy tales to our children along with the myths contained in the Eddas. They are all part of our cultural inheritance as Aryans. What is needed now is more analysis of these tales by Aryanists in order that we may uncover more important aspects of our ancient Aryan heritage.

Sword of Wayland: a Review





Firstly I would like to thank Mr Southgate for his publication of 45 articles taken from Woden's Folk exoteric magazine, Sword of Wayland. All of these articles are fairly recent having been published in the magazine over the last couple of years. Two articles that really stand out for me are Steed's "The Solar Path: Afterlife Ambitions in the Ancient World", quite a long article being 10 pages in length. It clearly sets out and compares the Left Hand Path view of survival against the Right Hand Path or lunar way of the masses. Each time I read this article I gain something new from it. The other article which is deserving of special reference is Wulf Ingesunnu's Summer Finding 2015 publication of the Law-Codes and Codes of Conduct of Woden's Folk along with his interpretation of the 33 stave English Rune Futhorc. This article which is magazine length is 35 pages in total.

This volume would make a useful introduction to the Weltanschauung of folkish Wodenism for any Germanic heathen and gives one the opportunity to gain an insight into Woden's Folk's work prior to subscribing to their magazines. Although I have read these articles before, reading them again in this volume gave me an opportunity to re-examine some very important material.

The following articles have been included: The Woden Männerbund; The Cosmic War; Folk Customs of Kent: The Hooden Horse; Ten Years Ago: The Awakening of the White Dragon; Heathen Lore; The Sacred Centre & the Sound of Creation; England's Dreaming; Future of the English; The Faravahar; Saint George the Wolf's Head; Beowulf the Geat; Hama - Fire from Water; Galdor-Cræft; The Eðel-Project; The Aryan English; English Resistance; Preparing the Way for the Last Avatar; Woden's Folk: Our Work; The Primal Aryan Myth: The Dragon-Slaying; Wodenic Priest; Widukind; The Polar Tradition; Information Wars; The Problem with Wicca; The Wolf-Fury; King Raedwald & the Leader of thje Wild Army; A Warning; Origin of the Martial Arts; The Hælweg; Parsifal: The Third Wave; The Reawakening; The Spiral; Beyond the Known Universe; The Awakening of the Valkyrie; Runic Postures; The Saxons in India; The Solar Path: Afterlife Ambitions in the Ancient World; Wodan id est Furor; Germania!; The Cosmic War; The English Warrior; He Who Returns; Idunn: the Goddess of Regeneration; and the special extended edition from Summer Finding 2015.

The contributors to this volume are Wulf Ingesunnu, Hamasson, Wotans Krieger, Steed, Offa Whitesun, Siegfrith and Siegmund. It is available for purchase on Amazon and directly from Black Front Press.

Heathen Elements in Wagner's Lohengrin




The tension between xtianity and the old Germanic heathen faith is present in all of us of Germanic ancestry and this is the consequence of the forced conversion of the Germanic peoples to this alien desert religion, often the result of the lack of faithfulness and downright treason of their kings and chieftains. Those of us who have children and raise them in the spirituality of our ancient Gods will thankfully not transmit this inner tension onto our sons and daughters who will grow to become genuinely free heathens, not exposed to the direct or indirect xtian indoctrination that more often than not occurs in schools. By home schooling children or failing that, taking them out of worship assemblies and Religious Education classes we protect them from the tyranny of monotheism.

This inner tension as I term it may be found in the operas, or more correctly, the music dramas of Richard Wagner. Whether this tension between the two religions was consciously or unconsciously woven into the fabric of these works, I am unsure. One particular work that has occupied my attention and meditation the last few days is Lohengrin. This is one of his earlier works, first performed in 1850. This was during Wagner's revolutionary phase; revolutionary in the political sense of the term.  Of course we know that Wagner was a music revolutionary as well!

Lohengrin unlike some of his other works was grounded in history. It was a skilful blend of German history and elements of Germanic mythology although one must look beneath the surface a little bit to understand this. In Act 2 Scene 2 we have a scene which focuses on a confrontation between the heroine of the work, the obviously xtian Elsa who was to marry the swan knight Lohengrin, the son of Parsifal. Ortrud is portrayed by Wagner as the scheming wife of  Friedrich von Telramund, Count of Brabant. In essence in this scene we have the conflict between the new and alien religion of xtianity and the heathenism of the pre-xtian Germanic peoples as Ortrud calls upon the ancient Gods:

"Entweihte Götter! Helft jetzt meiner Rache!
Bestraft die Schmach, die hier euch angetan!
Stärkt mich im Dienste eurer heil'gen Sache!
Vernichtet der Abtrünn'gen schnöden Wahn!
Wodan! Dich Starken rufe ich!
Freia! Erhabne, höre mich!
Segnet mir Trug und Heuchelei,
dass glücklich meine Rache sei!"

Ortrud invokes the Gods Wodan and Freia. It should be noted that Wagner chose the Wodan form of Wotan, quite possibly because the Duchy of Brabant is situated in modern day Belgium and is mainly Flemish. It was part of the First Reich or the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation. The First Reich included within its borders all of Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Belgium, parts of Eastern France, northern Italy, Slovenia and western Poland so much of this empire was genuinely Germanic. Wodan was predominately used by Dutch, Flemish and Platt Deutsch (Lower Saxon) speakers. Freia amongst the continental Germanic tribes embodied the attributes of the Norse Frigga and Freyja as it is believed by many scholars that this deity was once regarded as a single unified Goddess and I am inclined to agree.

The concept of the swan knight is rooted in both Germanic and Celtic mythology and it is interesting how this theme is melded with the concept of the Grail which is rooted in Celtic mythology and ultimately Proto-Indo-European.

"Its manifestly prominent role in the solar cults of Bronze Age Europe, for example, doubtless helped to establish its permament position in the mythology and in the literary legends of later Europe."(Pagan Celtic Britain, 1967, Anne Ross).

In Germanic mythology we may recall the stories of swan maidens such as in the legend of Wayland the Smith. It would appear to be an inheritance that is common to both the Germanic and Celtic peoples and thus probably signifies a joint inheritance from Proto-Indo-European times.

"The impressive weight of evidence for the perpetuation of the motif of the chain-bearing, music making, boat-or chariot-pulling swans of Urnfield and Hallstatt Europe in verbal form in some of the stories current in mediaeval Ireland and in Germanic literature, is one of the most satisfactory illustrations of the extraordinary longevity of cult legends which had their origin in pre-Celtic Europe. The persistence and frequency with which motifs, clearly derived from earlier cult practice, are found in the literatures of the early Celtic world is noteworthy. The Germanic 'Swan Knight' legends, having obvious affinities with the Celtic material, probably stem independently from the same cult source, although in all probability reinforced and given a fresh stimulus by contact with the Irish Church during its missions to Europe." (Ross)

 The swan solar motif is not confined to the Celto-Germanic cultural area but can be found in other lands settled by Aryans such as India:

"The Irish gods and the Celestial Rishis of India take the form of swans, like the swan-maidens when they visit mankind."(Indian Myth and Legend, 1913, Donald A. Mackenzie)

Some scholars seek the origins of Lohengrin in the Anglo-Saxon myth of Skeaf, the culture-bringing hero of the Anglo-Saxons.

"Scholars are now universally agreed that the origin of the Swan-Knight story is to be found in the myth of Skeaf, the reputed ancestor of the Anglo-Saxons. This legend relates how to the shores of these, our own ancestors, there drifted a rudderless boat, in which, cradled on a sheaf of corn, and surrounded by arms and treasure, there lay a sleeping child. To the child the Angles gave the name of Skeaf, from the sheaf of corn on which he lay. Grown to manhood he became their king, and from him they learned the arts of peace and of war. At length the king died, and obedient to his will they bare the body to the seashore, laid it again in the ship which had brought him hither, and the vessel and its burden drifted away into the unknown distance. From Skeaf sprang a mighty race of kings, and the folk were fain to believe that this mysterious ancestor of their rulers had been in truth a god." (Legends of the Wagner Drama, 1900, Jessie L. Weston)

Recently on rereading an article by Wulf Ingesunnu's in the newly published Sword of Wayland (Black Front Press, 2016) I saw a reference by Wulf which linked the God Hoenir to the stork who in fairytales is responsible for delivering new born babies to their parents. Jessie Weston also links Hoenir to a bird but this time both the stork and the swan:

"Some scholars hold that Hoenir himself may have been a personification of the swan, or stork, the white water-bird, and translate aurkonungr as 'lord of the ooze.' Cf. Corpus Poeticum Boreale, Introduction, p. cii. The origin of the myth is certainly extremely ancient, and involved in great obscurity." (Legends of the Wagner Drama)

She relates a tale from the Faroe Islands in which a peasant, playing a game of skill with a giant has to forfeit the life of his son if he is unable to hide the child. He calls upon the aid of Odin, Hoenir and Loki. It is Hoenir who is successful in hiding the child by transforming him into a piece of down and concealing him in the neck of a swan. she consider that Hoenir is a spring or light God.
