This posting is intended to follow on naturally from the previous one where I touched slightly upon the issue of symbolism.
A symbol is worth a thousand words for it is a means for direct communication with the Collective Unconscious in the same way that a trance or a dream can be viwed as a portal to this world. The Unconscious uses a different form of language than the Conscious and at the same time is a deep reservoir of ancestral and ancient racial archetypes and imagery.
This fact was well known by the mystics of the Third Reich who deliberately manipulated the holy signs and symbols of the pre-christian Germanic peoples and used them both during their spectacular mass festivals but also in everyday life. Not only did the Volk become accustomed to these symbols but in many people they evoked a certain emotional and psychological response, something which in most cases could not be adequately articulated but had a direct effect upon their Conscious mind. The exposure on a daily basis to these symbols, whether they be runes or various forms of the swastika/fylfot/Hakenkreuz started to condition the individual minds and the collective mind of the masses to a certain folkish predisposition.
Even those people who were not ardent National Socialists or were even cynical of the regime and idelogy nevertheless responded in a certain way to these symbols if they ethnically belonged to the Volk.
This is a lesson for us to learn today. We must start to play our apart in exposing the masses to our holy symbols and indeed those of us who have children should also ensure that they are also exposed to these symbols. Initially exposure in itself is sufficient. Later on when they are old enough to understand on a conscious level we should start to explain the teaching and lore behind them.

There is an urgent need for Wodenists to step up our spiritual warfare a notch. Here in England we are beginning to witness a folkish awakening of sorts, ill defined and vague no doubt but an awakening none the less.
Now more than ever we must continue the struggle in spiritual realms. If we do not win the struggle in that realm then any exorteric work and effort will be wasted.
One way in which we can do this is to spiritually charge our many sacred sites up and down the length and breadth of England with Wodenic energy.
Whether these be burial mounds, megaliths, henges, hills, wells, groves or whatever we must charge these sacred centres with avataric energy.
It may be helpful to visualise England as having hundreds of sacred energy points, wheels or chakras. These energy points all connect with what are commonly termed as ley lines. They resemble a web, a web of Wyrd in fact. By charging these sacred centres we are actively engaging in a magical work that can determine the course of events. The Rune Magician engages in Rune magic in order to impose his will upon the natural order. In our case it goes beyond the will of the individual Runester. We are in fact putting into effect the will of the Rune Lord Himself, Woden.
By engaging in this esoteric work we are strengthening the avataric force and preparing the indigenous people of this land spiritually for the coming of the last Avatar.
The exact nature of the rituals to be enacted I will leave to the individual to formulate for his or herself. This is a work that we all can and must participate in.
This work will help the folk to become receptive to Woden.
The use of symbols is highly important. We only have to consider the effect of the general and daily exposure of the masses to the ancient symbols and Runes of the Germanic peoples in 1930s Germany. One sacred symbol is worth a thousand words and we must never forget that. Before we engage the intellect of others we must first work upon their receptivity to the archetypes dwelling in the racial Collective Unconscious which knows only symbols and images not words and linear thinking.
Ancient and sacred symbols such as the Runes, sunwheels and fylfots speak to the Unconscious mind and this in turn will gradually affect the Conscious mind.
A folk is tied to its soil as well as its blood. By awakening the `soil` we will have an effect on the blood, awakening the folk gradually. Once our folk has been roused from its deep and long sleep then woe betide those who have sought to shackle the folk and betray its blood and soil! We can each one of us work to bring about the salvation of our folk from the genocide our enemies have planned for it and create a new Golden Age.
Because of the importance and urgency of this message I have decided to post this on 3 of my blogs.
