The Teuton and His Relationship with the Wolf

Fenrir, the monstrous wolf referred to in the Poetic Edda, the Prose Edda and the Heimskringla (Hákonarmál) is generally regarded with fear and/or loathing within heathen circles. However we must delve deeper, dig below the surface of things to begin to grasp the esoteric meaning of this creature and the myths associated with him.

Fenrir or Fenrisulf is the offspring of Loki from the giantess Angrboda. He features in two myths; the fettering of the wolf by Tyr and his unleashing at Ragnarok. What intrigues me the most is why the Aesir tolerated the presence of the wolf, why they bothered to fetter him instead of destroying him straight away. There must be a reason for this. Our Gods are not stupid: they are far wiser than us, their  descendants. Woden in particular has great in-sight and knew that the wolf would be the eventual undoing of the present race of Gods and at the climax of the age will cause His death-or rather His transformation.We know that He knew this for it is clear from Vafþrúðnismál when Woden questions Vafthrudnir that He already knew the answer to the question He was asking for this was a contest of wisdom, something that is not unusual in the Eddas and is worthy of analysis in its own right.

"Much I (Woden) have travelled, much have I tried out,
           much have I tested the Powers;

           what will Odin's life's end be,

           when the Powers are torn apart?"

          "The wolf will swallow the Father of Men,

            Vidar will avenge this;

             the cold jaws of the beast he will sunder

             in battle." (52-53, Larrington version of The Poetic Edda)

The Aesir thus chose to contain the Fenris wolf, to keep him close to their side. In Gylfaginning in the Prose Edda it is written:

"The Aesir brought up the wolf at home, and it was only Tyr who had the courage to approach the wolf to give it food."

So not only did Fenrir reside with the Aesir but he was fed by them! This is a strange thing to do when there are other options available. However this is a very human way of looking at things and the Gods are wiser, far wiser than us. Gylfaginning repeats what we already know from the older Poetic Edda:

"And when the gods saw how much it was growing each day, and all prophecies foretold that it was destined to cause them harm, then the Aesir adopted this plan, that they made a strong fetter which they called Leyding and brought it to the wolf and suggested he should try his strength with the fetter."(Faulkes translation)

The 'prophecies' that Snorri refers to undoubtedly include the ones concerning Fenris in Voluspa:

"The the second grief of Frigg comes about
            when Odin advances to fight against the wolf,

           and the bright slayer of Beli against Surt;

           then the beloved of Frigg must fall.

         "Then the great son of War-father,

           Vidar, advances against the Beast of Slaughter;

           with his hand he stabs his sword to the heart

           of Loki's kinsman: then his father is avenged." (53-54, Larrington translation)

Aryan antiquity viewed history or the movement of time in cycles. It was never viewed in a linear sense. This distortion appeared with the xtianisation of our ancestors and has no place in a healthy Aryan life-centred, rather than man-centred cosmogony. Woden knows this also. He realised that it was necessary to keep the agents of destruction, ie Loki and Fenrir close at hand for not only was the end inevitable but Loki in particular on occasions would prove to be of use to the Aesir because of his sheer cunning and intelligence. It is only as we approach Ragnarok will the Loki influence be fully unleashed, no longer restrained as Fenrir and  Jörmungandr will no longer be confined. Indeed we see Jörmungandr doing his work today with the increasing volume and intensity of earthquakes and tidal wave flooding throughout the world, all in accordance with Eddic prophecy and the prophecies of Woden's Initiates alive today.

Now whilst I am NOT an advocate of the worship of Loki what I am saying is that this force or influence in itself is not necessarily 'evil' in the sense that man views evil. May I make the point here that when we talk about  'good. and 'evil' these concepts are more associated with the judeo-xtian-islamic world view than a healthy Aryan Weltanschauung for these words are suggestive of moral absolutes and it would be a mistake for us to be influenced by these concepts. For this reason I tend not to use these terms in my writings. Loki and his offspring are indeed at the end of each cycle of the ages catalysts of destruction and thus agents of CHANGE or development. Let us pause here and note a great truth: without change there can be NO life for change is the necessary dynamic of existence and without it there would be no life to begin with. We as physical beings change. We are born; we develop, we mature, we decay and we die. This all part of the Listian concept of ARISING-BECOMING-PASSING AWAY-NEW ARISING. Even the Gods are subject to these very same universal laws.

Thus our world has known multiple Ragnaroks but the Ragnarok which we are facing has a special dimension to it. It is a religious and indeed also a racial Ragnarok for it has been revealed by our Folk Warder that in this age Ragnarok=Korangar and as I myself have revealed we have the choice in the era of Ragnarok between Walhalla/Allahlaw. We see this being currently played out on the world stage. In the aftermath of the global conflagration between the two destructive Abrahamic religions-Islam and the pseudo-xtian 'New World Order' we will step into the power vacuum that will be left. Thus we must do all we can exoterically and esoterically to bring this about. In folkish Wodenism we are not concerned with the exoteric struggle-we will leave that to the youth but we are concerned with the esoteric struggle and we need to take this struggle into other dimensions, other worlds or planes of existence outside of Midgarth. In a Europe destroyed by Allahlaw we will usher in the Widar God force of Walhalla as the natural racial alternative to the slave religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Not only will our peoples be freed from spiritual and racial contamination but the whole of nature will be rejuvinated as we are told in the Eddas:

"Without sowing the fields will grow,
            all ills will be healed, Baldr will come back;

            Hod and Baldr, the gods of slaughter, will live happily


            in the sage's palaces-do you understand yet, or what

            more?" (Voluspa 62, Poetic Edda, Larrington translation)

The Thorpe translation words this passage slightly differently:

"Unsown shall the fields bring forth, all evil be amended;
           Baldr shall come; Hodr and Baldr, the heavenly gods, Hropt's

           glorious dwellings shall inhabit. Understand ye yet, or what? (verse 60)

In addition to the Fenris wolf there are other monstrous wolves which make their appearance at Ragnarok, namely Skoll who pursues the sun whilst it is on its course in the sky and Hati who likewise pursues the moon:

"Skoll a wolf is called who pursues the shining god
            to the protecting woods;

            and another is Hati, he is Hrodvitnir's son,

            who chases the bright bride of heaven." ( Grimnismal 39, Poetic Edda, Larrington translation)

Snorri states in the Poetic Edda:

"High said: 'It is two wolves, and the one that is going after her is called Skoll. She is afraid of him and he will catch her, and the one that is running ahead of her is called Hati Hrodvitnisson, and he is trying to catch the moon, and that will happen." (Gylfaginning, Faulkes translation)

 Indeed even mightier and more monstrous than Skoll and Hati is Moongarm or Managarm:

"Then spoke Gangleri: 'What is the origin of the wolves?'
High said: 'A certain giantess lives east of Midgard in a forest called Ironwood. In that forest live trollwives called Iarnvidiur. The ancient giantess breeds as sons many giants and all in wolf shapes, and it is from them that these wolves are descended. And they say that from this clan will come a most mighty one called Moongarm. He will fill himself with the lifeblood of everyone that dies, and he will swallow heavenly bodies and spatter heaven and all the skies with blood. As a result the sun will lose its shine and winds will then be violent and will rage to and fro. Thus it says in Voluspa:
'In the east lives the old one, in Ironwood, and breeds there Fenrir's kind. Out of them all comes one in particular, sun's snatcher in troll's guise.
He gorges the life of doomed men, reddens gods' halls with red gore. Dark is sunshine for summers after, all weathers hostile. Know you yet, or what?'" (Gylfaginning, Faulkes translation)

It would appear that Managarm only appears in the Prose Edda. The suffix Garm means destroyer and thus this entity is the destroyer of the moon. Managarm may be the same creature as Garm:

"Garm bays loudly before Gnipa-cave,
           the rope will break and the ravenour run free,
           much wisdom she knows, I see further ahead

           to the terrible doom of the victorious gods." (Voluspa 49, Larrington translation)

There certainly seems to be an element of confusion between the exact roles of Garm, Managarm, Skoll, Hati and Fenrir!

The wolf is also a feature of Germanic legend and we know that certain members of the Volsung clan, namely Sigmund and Sinfjotli had the ability to transform themselves into wolves. Indeed the werewolf (man-wolf) legend is rife amongst the pre-xtian Germanic peoples. Those who lived outside the normal rules of society were known as Ulfhednar (wolf-heads) and certain of these formed mystical warrior bands known as Männerbünde, dedicated to Woden. In the Eddas Woden is pictured as being in the company of His two wolves Freki and Geri which both mean 'ravenous'. Why exactly this should be one can only guess. However His two wolves share a connection with His two ravens, Hugin and Munin: they are all feeders off the battlefield dead and Woden is lord of the battlefield amongst many other functions which He has.

The name of 'Wolf' or 'Wulf' appears as part of the names of many heroes in Germanic legend and history. Kris Kershaw in his Odin: Der einäugige Gott und die indogermanischen Männerbünde states: 

"It stands beyond question, that wolf names generally predominate amongst the Germanic peoples and especially with the Indo-Germanic peoples in comparison with dog names." (WOTANS KRIEGER'S TRANSLATION of the German translation of the original work in English!)

Even down to modern times this is still the case and we are reminded that the name Adolf is a contraction of Adalwolf-noble wolf. Clearly this relationship between Germanic man and the wolf is a reflection of the relationship between Woden and His wolves. Let us remember that man's best friend, the dog is basically a domesticated wolf with all the ferocious elements bred out of him although some breeds of dogs still resemble the wolf physically. The Wuffinga dynasty of East Anglia takes its name from their ancestor Wuffa, a descendent of Woden. The Wuffas are in reality the Wuffingas-sons of the wolf!

It behoves us to reflect on Germanic man's relationship with the wulf for it is a complex one containing both negative and positive attributes. This is most especially urgent because we are living in the Wolf Age prophesied in the Voluspa. It is inevitable and indeed right that we should explore the wolf part of our natures as a weapon to be used in the struggle that faces us. In folkish Wodenism many of us have adopted the name of Wulf and there is a reason for this and it is rooted in the Blood Memory.

Wulf Ingesunnu's Books Back in Print

Act now! Both of Wulf's books have kindly been republished by Troy Southgate's Black Front Press 
which can be ordered either directly from their blog via Paypal: or if you prefer both can be purchased from along with other titles.

The Meditative Paradigms of Seiðr

I wish to draw my readers' attention to a mysterious Odinist esoteric text which appears as an appendix to the The Asatru Edda (2009) as The Hugrunar and as The Hugrunes in The Odinist Edda (2014) which is basically an anglicisation of the earlier work. I have referred to this particular work before in .

Its correct title is The Meditative Paradigms of Seiðr and information about them and the text itself can also be found on 
Whilst I have read through the text several times I have yet to meditate upon them but full instructions on how to do so may be found on the afore-mentioned web page which is part of a most interesting website

Whilst most of us involved in folkish Wodenism are familar with working with runes some people tend to lack the same familiarity with  meditation. The system outlined on the above-mentioned links will ground the meditation in a folkish text as this clearly is and I would encourage my readers to give this a go. Any information as to the origins of the text (other than what is already given on the website) would be very welcome.

A Yuletide Message from Wotans Krieger

It is ironic that at this sacred time of the old year, the Yuletide which witnesses the rebirth of the returning sun that the xtian churches throughout the centuries have maintained that the adherence of our folk to the ancient ways is somehow a distortion of their Christmas festival and the 'work of the devil'. By renaming the ancient northern European feast of Yule after their unhistorical mythical jewish 'messiah' they then claim that any reassertion of the traditional heathen Yule is somehow a distortion of the feast which they have hijacked and stolen from us! Hence we see their desparate attempts of maintaining their lie with their pitful slogan of 'Keep Christ in Christmas!' They do this whilst hypocritically decorating their Yule trees, exchanging gifts and lighting their Yulelogs!

The truth of the matter is that their Christmas for the masses of human cattle has become little more than a season of over-indulgence, drunkenness and debauchery for the people now (as always) do not understand the esoteric significance of the season and like children with no understanding they follow their basest instincts, foolishly getting themselves into debt. Then come January they 'rue the day', swearing that 'won't get fooled again' but then like automotans they repeat the same behaviour in the following year, a marketing man's dream idiot!  For those of us who are part of folkish Wodenism and Germanic heathenry in general we have undestanding and follow this separate and third way. We observe the spiritual traditions that have survived the ravages of xtianity.

As we await the rebirth of the physical sun, the Lady Sunna so we also await the rebirth of the Arya in this devastated white island of Albion which is suffering from the human flood prophesied by our Folk Warder and founder of our Wodenic religion in the late 20th century, Wulf Ingesunnu:
"This land is sacred to us, not some 'Holy Land' in the Middle-East; our Ancestors worshipped the Gods at these places, places built by the Giants of ancient times - the Hyperborean Heroes. Their blood and their spirit still flows through the veins of those who feel the Call of the Blood through the Blood Memory. This is Albion - The White Island - The Isles of the Elven-Folk."

That Call of the Blood, the awakening of the Blood Memory which Jung secularised as the Collective Unconscious is accelerating. As we witness the heedless rush towards Ragnarok-Korangar we will be faced with choice of Walhalla-Allahlaw, a situation foisted upon us by the white traitors who are destroying this beautiful and sacred land. The real 'cult of death' referred to by Cameron is in fact the secret overlords, the evil cabal who are the hidden ones in control of the media and all arms of the establishment who having stirred up hatred in the muslim world have now caused a 'refugee' crisis which is the flood referred to in Wulf's prophecy. Fanatical islam is a sympton, not the cause of the present situation. That is an inconvenience that they do not wish for the masses to understand. As has been shown recently in Parliament if you oppose the insanity of constant war in the Middle East that makes you, in the words of Cameron, a 'terrorist', a word which has replaced 'witch' in 21st century England.

Yggdrasill, the Source of Life for the Aryan Race

The Eddas affirm Yggdrasill to be an ash tree:

"I know that an ash tree stands called Yggdrasill,
            a high tree, soaked with shining loam;

            from there come the dews which fall in the valley,

            ever gree, it stands over the well of fate." (Voluspa 19, Larrington translation)

"Trembles Yggdrasil's ash yet standing; groans that aged tree, and the jotun is loosed. Loud bays Garm before the the Gnupa-cave, his bonds he rends asunder; and the wolf runs." (Voluspa 48, Thorpe translation)

"The ash of Yggdrasill suffers agony
            more than men know:

            a hart bites it from above, and it decays at the sides,

            and Nidhogg rends it beneath." (Grimnismal 35, Larrington translation)

"The ash of Yggdrasil is the noblest of trees,
            and Skidbladnir the best of ships,

           Odin best of the Aesir, Sleipnir of horses,

           Bilrost of bridges, Bragi of poets,

           Habrok of hawks, and Garm of dogs." (Grimnismal 44, Larrington translation)

"The ash is of all trees the biggest and best. Its branches spread out over all the world and extend across the sky." (Gylfaginning 14, Faulkes translation)

The Eddas also tell us that the first man Ask was fashioned from a tree:

"Until three gods, strong and loving,
           came from that company to the world;

          they found on land Ash and Embla,

          capable of little, lacking in fate." (Voluspa 17, Larrington translation)

Whilst I in no way wish to contradict the Eddas scholarly opinion is in fact divided over the nature of the species of tree that Yggdrasill represents. It is considered by some scholars that Ygg is derived from Proto-Germanic *igwja, meaning yew, thus arguing that the word has been mistranslated in the Eddas. Runologists often connect the Eiwaz Rune with the world tree, thus connecting it with the yew. Indeed Edred Thorsson makes this connection in his book Futhark (1984) :

"Eihwaz is the vertical axis of the world that defines the central column of Yggdrasil, the cosmic tree. The world-tree of the ancient Norse was in most cases actually symbolized by a yew tree, not an ash as often supposed. This idea is supported by the old texts, which always refer to its 'evergreen' quality and its needles-the yew is a conifer. An alternate name for the yew in Old Norse is also barraskr (needle ash)."

On an esoteric level I am inclined to agree with Edred but just to confuse things further there is yet another candidate for Yggdrasill and that is the mighty oak tree. One of the supporters for this third candidate is the German Atlantis researcher and writer Karl Georg Zschaetzsch who posits the theory that the oak was the world tree in his Die Urheimat der Arier , 1922 (The Original Homeland of the Aryans).

Zshaetzsch states that Yggdrasil is described as an ash in the Nordic tradition but then goes on to disagree with this, stating that the prefix 'Ygg' or 'Yg' actually accords with the Nordic 'Eg' and the English 'Oak' and the suffix 'sil' means 'Seele' or 'soul'. Thus he defines Yggdrasil as the 'Oaktree of the soul' and thus 'Tree of Life' as soul = life.

 If this is the case that the World Tree is represented by the Oak then no wonder that this species of tree is so revered among the Aryan peoples of Europe. It was probably one of their few sources of nutrition after the catastophe of the Sintbrand (conflagration) caused by a comet that  burned much of Atlantis. This symbol is thus so burned into the Blood Memory of the Aryan peoples that it survives in their various mythological traditions.

The author goes on to say that among the Oaks there are different species which have edible fruits or acorns which can be eaten either raw or roasted. He believes that in Atlantis these were used as meal for bread.  If this is the case that the World Tree is represented by the Oak then no wonder that this species of tree is so revered among the Aryan peoples of Europe. It was probably one of their few sources of nutrition after the catastophe of the Sintbrand (conflagration) caused by a comet that  burned much of Atlantis. This symbol is thus so burned into the Blood Memory of the Aryan peoples that it survives in their various mythological traditions.

My readers should note that according to Zschaetzsch the Aryans were originally vegetarians as also speculated by Savitri Devi. This is something which we need to give thought to as in any breakdown of society-and the 'New World Order' which in effect is just the culmination of the old world order will eventually break down and meat will be in short supply. Zschaetzsch states that the surviving Aryans were supplied with milk from nearby animals (the suckling of the divine twins Romulus and Remus by the she-wolf comes to mind) and the animals must not have been afraid of the humans, thus strengthening the argument that the Aryans were vegetarians.

Woden, the High Lord of the Initiate

Woden is not a God that can easily be approached by the uninitiated and to do so carelessly is to court danger and chaos. This is why amongst the majority of our peoples He was the God of either the cultic warrior or the shaman-mystic. The masses of our folk instead served Thunor, who is our guardian, defender and protector. All of us at some time wear the Hammer either for protection or as a symbol of our Germanic faith but it is to Woden that we approach for wisdom and realisation of our Self for He is the God of wisdom, the Master of the Runes which He won in an act of Self-sacrifice. This is indeed the key to our spiritual development-sacrifice but not of animals and men but of our Selves as He, Woden , the High Lord has demonstrated to us.

There are various examples of Woden's suffering in the form of Self-sacrifice in the Eddas. These acts of Self-sacrifice include the sacrifice of one of His eyes for an exchange of water from the wise and ancient Mimir's well, His hanging from the world tree for nine nights to acquire the knowledge of the runes and even his suffering as the result of being tortured by His favourite protege Geirrodr. Pain and suffering feature as necessary prerequisites in Woden's never ending quest for wisdom and understanding and so it is with His followers then and now; thus to serve Woden is not an easy task and should not be entered into lightly without a consideration of the consequences.

One of the criticisms levelled at the High Lord is His supposed duplicity in 'betraying' His favourites. Those who make this accusation do not and never will undestand Him. They 'think' as mere human cattle which the masses essentially are. The vast majority of people-our own race included are concerned only with their petty comforts and give no deeper thought about spiritual matters. They are little better-indeed I would say they were of less value than the beasts of the field for at least they serve a function and do not wantonly cause havoc and devastation as human animals do. Ragnarok will dispose of these useless eaters and pave the way for an earth free of corruption-human and otherwise, an earth fit for the God-man, the redeemed Arya to walk with the Gods, the Shining Ones once more in a new and wonderful Golden Age.

Going back to the issue of Woden and His supposed 'duplicity'. Surely for Woden to cause the fall of His Chosen in battle (and life surely is battle if lived correctly) is nothing other than a blessing for He so values His Einheriar that He desires their company in His celestial hall of Walhalla. To be with Woden, to walk with Him, to learn from Him is surely our most profound desire? What is the cutting short of a corrupt physical existence by a few years worth in comparison with this? Rather it should be considered a blessing. As Woden-born initiates those of us who wear the Valknut, burned into our flesh have made a symbolic gesture, a sacrifice, an indication to the High Lord that we belong to Him, that we serve Him but do so freely, willingly and not by compulsion.

To serve Woden is thus to enter into a life of sacrifice, of Self-sacrifice in order that we may in emulation of Him receive wisdom and gain understanding and knowledge. The more sacrifices that we experience the greater this wisdom, understanding and knowledge.

The Englisc Scene by Wulf

A powerful commentary on the state of 'Englisc Nationalism' by the founder of the revived Woden Folk Religion. If any should doubt that Woden is moving today, as He has moved many times in the past in the blood of His people then one should consider that He has sent out his prophets as heralds of the Coming One from Above, preparing His Way. He speaks today through these prophets:

The Alemanni, the Aryamanni

I have discussed before on this blog the connection between the Indo-Aryan Aryaman, the Iranian Airyaman, the Gallic Ariomanus, the Irish Eremon and the Germanic Irmin, how they are all variants of the Indo-European racial God, the very representation of the Aryan folk before and after their division into the multiple separate folk groups that have manifested through recorded history as the Teutons, Celts, Slavs, Balts, Iranians, Indo-Aryans, Greeks, Latins and Hittites etc. All of these deities derive from the Proto-Iindo-European *aryo-mn. See my earlier articles  and

I have now identified a further link between this *aryo-mn and the Alemanni, a tribal confederation of Germanic peoples centred on the Upper Rhine and first referred to by Cassius Dio in the 3rd century CE. Their descendants are the native populations of French Alsace, Baden, Swabia, the Austrian Vorarlberg and northern Switzerland. They are responsible for the formation of the Old High German (OHG) dialect. Because the Alemanni were drawn from neighbouring Germanic tribes they became known as the "all men" or at least that was the explanation given by the 3rd century CE Greek historian Gaius Asinius Quadratus but Edward Gibbon in his Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire equated them with the Suebi, the name which they used as a self-descriptor. They apparently did not refer to themselves as Alemanni. That is the accepted historical view. However there is an alternative explanation which will be of interest to my readers.

Alexander Jacob states in his The Indo-European Origins of the Grail (published as part of The Two Grails, 2015, which contains an essay by Leopold von Schroeder, The Roots of the Saga of the Holy Grail (1910), translated by Alexander Jacob):

"Farther west, one of the oldest branches of the Germanic peoples is called the Alemanni, a name that may be a corruption of an earlier form as Aryamanni." (page 162)

He also briefly remarks that "the Germanic tribes may have formed a part of the northern Cimmerian Celtic race,", an exceedingly ancient Aryan people who he believes to have settled in the British Isles and Gaul, the original Druids being their priestly caste. The Alemanni my readers may recall are descended from the Herminones who I conjectured were named after their ancestral deity Irmin who is one of the Indo-European deities cognate with *aryo-mn.

The very fact that Indo-European peoples as widely dispersed as the Teutons, Irish, Gauls, Iranians and Indo-Aryans should have a common deity from which we get the term Arya is in itself sufficient evidence for the original common origins of these peoples. The realisation that the Germans should like the Iranians and Indo-Aryans call themselves Arya is further compelling evidence that this is a term which belongs not just to the Indo-Iranians but other Indo-Europeans. It is also interesting to note that the Alemanni is a term used of the entire German folk by the French, Allemands. The Alamanni, the Germans are thus the Aryan men. Likewise the ancient Irish in their caste system called their nobles Arya or more specifically aire:

"The ceile was the producer, the basis of the entire society. Above them came the warriors and nobles, the flaith, often coming under the title of aire (noble), which is cognate with the Sanskrit word arya, freeman. Then came the professional class, originally the Druids." (The Celts, Peter Berresford Ellis, 1998)

The British Isles and Atland

Over recent years I have written extensively on this and my Celto-Germanic Culture, Myth and History blogs about the ancient presence of the Germanic peoples in the British Isles and how English is now increasingly being considered as an ancient Germanic language deserving of its own classification as a distinct sub-group within the family of Germanic languages. See http://The Ancient Presence of the Germanic Peoples in England 

I have also made a case for the Germanic origins of the megalithic culture. 
In the light of this I have also widely discussed the Indo-European or Aryan origins of Phases II and III of Stonehenge.

Wulf Ingessunu, the founder and Folk Warder of Woden's Folk has also followed similar but independent lines of enquiry in his writings. I wish to add further light to these researchers by informing my readers that my research and conclusions have been strengthened in my own mind following my recent reading of Tony Steele's The Rites and Rituals of Traditional Witchcraft, published by Capall Bann in 2001. Mr Steele is the founder of  the Ordo Anno Mundi, a magical order which uses the Oera Linda Book as a foundational text. The Rites and Rituals of Traditional Witchcraft quotes frequently from the Oera Linda Book.

Tony Steele's book contains a lot of useful information regarding the lost Frisian and Aryan civilisation and land mass known as Atland which he derives from Oat-land and Aldland-Old-land. This land mass and its civilisation was destroyed by the Great Flood of 2194 BCE. He considers the cause of this cataclysm to be the appearance of the Hale-Bopp comet. Interestingly the reappearance of this comet heralded the formation of Woden's Folk by Wulf, to prepare the way for the final Avatar. There is a deep mystical truth and connection here that we need to meditate on.

Mr Steele comes to the conclusion (far earlier than many others) that Old English, which is closely related to Old Frisian is far more archaic than many scholars up until now have been willing to admit.  Stephen Oppenheimer in his Origins of the British: The New Pre-History of Britain: A Genetic Detective Story (2007) analyses the structure and lexicon of Old English and comes to the conclusion that it is not merely an offshoot of the West Germanic or Ingaevonic language group. Its genesis is more complicated than that. It does indeed share a close similarity in structure with Old Frisian but its lexicon is greatly affected by North Germanic-Old Norse. Now my readers must not jump to the conclusion that this is the result of the Viking invasions as these took place centuries after the advent of the Anglo-Saxons. So any Scandinavian influence on Old English would have had to have taken place before the Saxon invasions but this does not make sense as before these invasions there was no English presence in Britain-or so it would seem. Thus Oppenheimer theorises that there was indeed a Germanic language and thus a Germanic presence already here in England by the time of the Anglo-Saxon invasions.

The truth of the matter is that the ancestors of the English were present in Britain thousands of years before the accepted date of the Anglo-Saxon invasion of 449 CE referred to in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicles. Like myself Mr Steele attributes the Megalithic Culture to the Germanic peoples but he refers to the English as part of a Frisian confederation which covered most of northern and western Europe. It is no coincidence that Haplotype R1b is dominant in western Europe including the British Isles and is particularly common amongst the so-called Celts of Ireland, Scotland and Wales as well as the Western Germanic peoples (English, Frisians, Dutch, Germans). Indeed Wulf makes a similar point in his recent blog article

"These similarities may not be 'borrowings' since I would suggest they have a common source in the ancient land of At-al-land which was the northern continent much of which sank under the North Sea some 7,000 years ago in a catastrophe. This being so these myths are Ario-Germanic Myths (Northern European) originally. As we have gone some way to proving, these islands were not 'Celtic' at all but were made up mainly of Germanic Folk with a mixture of Gallic peoples from Southern Europe and migrations from the South."

To further prove this point 'The Destruction of Da Derga's Hostel' is based around the Winter Sunstead period of the year, and the four main points of the 'Celtic' (Gallic) calender are the X-points and not the points that include the Winter Sunstead, this being a Germanic Festival. We can find Germanic Myth throughout these islands since the peoples are a mixture, and the idea that Wales, Scotland and Ireland are somewhat 'different' and 'Celtic' is a modern invention - one suited to our oppressors who work through the 'divide and conquer' method. In very ancient times we can see that Ingwe-Inguz is a figure found throughout these islands (except Wales, but even there we find Woden as Gwydio/Wydion).
There is a particularly close connection between Germanic and Celtic mythology in the British Isles which goes beyond cultural 'borrowing' or exchange or indeed from their shared Indo-European distant past. It is indicative that the shared mythology and DNA of the so-called Celts and Teutons demonstrates that at one point they were a unifield folk and that the British Isles has always been Ario-Germanic.

For many years so-called scholars have been unwilling to admit to the possibility that Stonehenge, the greatest of our ancient monuments was of Indo-European origin despite research and writings on this subject going back to the 1950s. It is only now with the recent discoveries at Stonehenge that it is accepted as fact even though the likes of Peter Crampton and Leon Stover have been writing about this since the 1960s and 1970s respectively that Stonehenge was built by Indo-Europeans (the Wessex Culture).

What I find also of interest in Mr Steele's book is that the Picts, thought to be aboriginal to Britain may indeed have a Germanic origin. For many years they were considered to be either non-Indo-European or simply a subset of the Celts. It is argued that the language of the Picts was "a very archaic and somewhat degenerate form of Germanic." Mr Steele mentions that the original name of Britain was Albion meaning either White Island or more interestingly Elf Island. He points out that J.R.R. Tolkien demonstrated that cognates of the word 'Elf' are only to be found in Germanic languages! The Scots who colonised Scotland from Ulster renamed the Picts' Alba as Scotland.

The Frisian confederation was apparently divided into ten 'kindreds' which included the Angelarar (the Angles) along with the Juttar (Jutes) and Saxmannar (Saxons)which constituted the Anglo-Saxon tribes which returned to Britain from the mid 5th century CE onwards. The English therefore were an important part of this confederation.

I will be returning to this subject in future articles on this blog.

Germanic Rebirth, not New Age Reincarnation

In today's New Age movement there is a lot of nonsense spoken and written about reincarnation. The modern doctrine of reincarnation is the watered down Kali Yuga distortion of the Aryan and Germanic concept of the Eternal Return. Whilst it is true that the Germanic peoples and the original Aryans believed in the concept of Rebirth that is not the same thing as New Age reincarnation which seeks to democratise an ancient and valid belief.

The pre-xtian Teutonic peoples believed in Rebirth and their concept of the 'soul' was a complex one. As Dr Stephen Edred Flowers makes clear in his remakably informative books Sigurd: Rebirth and the Rites of Transformation (Runa Raven 2011, Lodestar 2015) and Runelore (Samuel Weiser, 1987) our ancestors believed that body-soul complex consisted of many parts: the lik (the body itself), the Hugr (the mind),  Hamr (shape-substance), Odhr (faculty of ecstasy), Ond (vital breath), Minni (memory), Sal (the soul), Fylgja (the Fetch-following spirit of the opposite gender) and Hamingja (luck).

I do not intend to go into any detail about the individual parts of the Germanic body-soul complex but the reader will notice that I have referred to 9 parts. This is significant and is related to the 9 worlds of Norse cosmology. Interestingly Anglo-Saxon cosmology knows of 7 rather than 9 worlds. Again this is not something I am going to elaborate on right now but these 7 worlds are divided between 3 realms. Ocultists relate the 9 and 7 worlds to a 9 or 7 chakra or wheel system.

Returning to the issue of rebirth it is clear that if the body-soul complex is divided into 9 parts, on their dissolution after death they will not all go or return to the same place and may not even survive at all. Germanic mythology curiously knows of many dwelling places of the dead and this subject is elaborated on in detail in Hilda Roderick Ellis's The Road to Hel (1943, republished by Cambridge University Press in 2013). Hilda Ellis (Davidson) examines the evidence for the Germanic afterlife from archaeology and literature and finds from their burial customs that in addition to Walhall and Folkfang the dead also resided in burial mounds, the halls of the sea Goddess Ran and the underworld of Hel. The dead as draugr (a form of vampire or zombie) also visited the living. Encountering the dead could have either beneficial or malignant results. This is why it is imperative that when undergoing any esoteric work the magician carry out the necessary protective rite which for us in the Northern Tradition is the Hammer Rite.

Dr Flowers makes it clear in his works that the different aspects of the body-soul complex depart on death to different regions. The Hamingja for instances continues by being transferred to the new born of the family, clan, tribe or race. It does not die and the naming of a child after a recently departed ancestor helps to assure the transference of the Hamingja from one generation to another. Families often used the same prefix in given names. He gives an example from the Sigurd book in the early genealogy of the Cheruscans: Segimer, Segestes, Segithank, Segimund etc. The luck of the individual was really the luck of the family, clan, tribe or race.

In terms of individual consciousness, for the greater mass of mankind death produces forgetfullness and loss of memory of previous lives in the Eternal Return, for the personality, that which makes them individual gradually fades away and dies. As Viktor Rydberg states in Teutonic Mythology Volume 1:

"In Saxo we find an idea related to the antique Lethe myth, according to which the liquids and plants which belong to the lower world produce forgetfulness of the past. Therefore, Thorkil (Thorkillus) warns his companions not to eat or drink any of that which Gudmund offers them. In the Gudrun song (ii, 21, 22), and elsewhere, we meet with the same idea." (Chapter 49)

Miguel Serrano in his Resurrection of the Hero states:

"Only in the Eternal Return of the demiurgic cycles, as we have herein seen, can one return without a soul."
The beast-man has no soul, no sense of who or what he or she is. They are mere cardboard cut-outs, robotmen with no destiny to fulfill and thus they are nothing but slaves of the demiurge but we as servants and children of the Aesir must waken those who are meant to be awoken for the number of the Einherjar is already known and foretold in the Eddas:

"Five hundred doors and yet forty more, that is what I think are in Val-hall. Eight hundred Einheriar will go at once through one doorway when they and the wolf go to fight." (Gylfaginning, Prose Edda)

In other words the figure is 432,000. I believe this is certainly a symbolic figure for reasons I have stated in earlier articles for this figure is the number of years in the Hindu Kali Yuga but it could represent an actual known number of Woden Initiates. Certainly the idea of there being a large but limited host chosen by All-Father Woden is clear from our sacred writings.

It is the task of the incarnated hero, the Vira to REMEMBER who he or she is, to AWAKEN and thus awakened, to ACT. On remembering who he or she is the Vira KNOWS what his or her life's work is and devotes himself or herself to it which in essence is the winning of personal immortality, a God-like existence and to break free from the necessity, the Not of Eternal Recurrence, which is the lot of the beast-man. In returning to the celestal realm of Asgard the Vira has a face.

The Good Religion. The Occidental Temple of the Wise Lord: a Review

I have just completed my reading of The Good Religion. The Occidental Temple of the Wise Lord by Darban-I-Den (Dr Stephen Edred Flowers/Edred Thorsson) and found it quite fascinating. This book may appear to signify a turning point for Edred as he is currently engaged in the formation of a Zoroastrian or Mazdan religious order in the West. This order is called The Occidental Temple of the Wise Lord, the Wise Lord being Ahura Mazda. This does not necessarily indicate to me that he is moving away from his Germanic and runic research. In the past he has produced for instance studies on the Celtic Ogham (The Book of Ogham, 1992), Hermetics and Alchemy (Hermetic Magic. The Postmodern Magical Papyrus of Abaris, 1995 and Carnal Alchemy, 1995) as well as forays into Freemasonry (Freemasonry and the Germanic Tradition, 2008) and his alleged involvement with the Temple of Set.

So this latest work follows a pattern of Edred examing and bringing to light Indo-European or Aryan sources of spirituality and making them accessible to a wider readership. In my opinion he is the ultimate modern day Germanic Faustian man and I commend him in his pioneering endeavours. My readers will be pleased to note that many of the now out of print Runa Raven titles are being republished by Lodestar. However a more mainstream publisher Inner Traditions Bear and Company is bringing out his Icelandic Magic: The Mystery and Power of the Galdrabok Grimoire in 2016. This may be a different work from his earlier Runa Raven book The Galdrabok. An Icelandic Book of Magic, 2011). This earlier work was originally published by Red Wheel/Weiser in 1990. Inner Traditions recently republished his groundbreaking and authorative Lords of the Left Hand Path: Forbidden Practices and Spiritual Heresies in 2012. In the same year Weiser published his ALU, An Advanced Guide to Operative Runology. See my review

In the book Edred sets out the history of Zoroastrianism and the life of the prophet Zarathustra and places this in an Indo-European context as he has done with his researches into the Celtic, Hermetic and Freemasonic paths. In this sense the book follows that pattern. Indeed there are three chapters on the Indo-Europeans, the Indo-Iranians and the Iranians in the Historical section of the book. After this section there follows an Ideological section with chapters on Theology, Demonology and Cosmology and finally a section on Ritual and Prayer. The first two sections of the book were the most interesting for me as I have no intention of becoming a Mazdan although Edred stresses that this religious path may run alongside any other that the individual is practicing. He demonstrates that this is an Indo-European religion built upon the tripartite system but nevertheless is intended to become a universal religion to counter the Abrahamic religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. However the Mazdan path allows for people to continue also in their original religious path if they so wish. This shows remarkable tolerance which is a known trait of Indo-European systems of belief.

In his book Edred stresses the communal nature of this religion although most of it can be practiced alone as an individual. I think in this area he may struggle as I can see that isolated individuals may adopt this religion but to find small groups or individuals coming together in a wide geographical area will be difficult as those of us who follow a heathen path know only too well. To sum up this book is no doubt to be regarded as a foundation text of this new revival of an ancient religion and is specifically intended for the western man as western Mazdaism will inevitably have many differences to Iranian Zorastrianism. It will also be of interest to anyone who is drawn to Indo-European religion and spirituality regardless of what particular path you may follow.

The Present Day Survival of the Volsungs-Light and Hope for the Future

These are dark days for the Aryan race but this should not come as any surprise to the majority of my readers who are aware of the Prophecy of the Vala (Voluspa, Poetic Edda). The time leading up to Ragnarok will be one of increasing conflict and this is mirrored in the very word itself R-A-G-N-A-R-O-K > K-O-R-A-N-G-A-R (Spear of the Koran, Gar being Germanic for the word spear). Islamic fundamentalism will be the catalyst for the coming world war for the two concepts cannot reside side by side-W-A-L-H-A-L-L-A > A-L-L-A-H-L-A-W (Sharia Law). Our Germanic and Aryan heathen spirituality and way of life over the millenia has been the object of attack by the followers first of YAHWEH, then of the Christ and now by the followers of Allah and his prophet Muhammad.

The western apologists who have not only allowed but engineered events for millions of Muslims to invade the west refer to Islam as a 'religion of peace' whenever the latest Islamist atrocity takes place. These are the true followers of Islam not the peaceful hard working citizens who are merely cultural muslims. The true muslim like the true Christian or follower of Judaism is a fanatic for fanaticism is encouraged in the holy books of all three Abrahamic religions. The word Islam shares the same root as the Arabic word salem which means peace but Islamists interpret this to mean that personal peace can only be attained by submission to Allah. If one doubts the warlike nature of Islam one only has to consider its history and the foothold that it gained in Spain and Portugal-by CONQUEST! The idiotic and traitorous politicians who control the west today are set to allow yet more floods of these fifth columnists (despite the apparent objections presented to the media) into our lands, first of all to leach off the rest of us and then to increase their growing militant cadre. So Ragnarok my readers is inevitable!

However dear readers there is light and this light I reveal to you now. There has been much talk and many books written in recent decades on the supposed bloodline of the Holy Grail. The book that sparked all this off was The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail by Michael Baigent, Richard Leigh and Henry Lincoln in 1982. This legend has proven to be a nice little earner for those involved in churning out this nonsense. The truth of the matter is that yes there is a Holy Bloodline and yes there is a Graal but they have nothing to do with the fictional characters of the New Testament. The real Holy Bloodline is that of the Volsungs. It is Germanic and it is Woden-born. The Volsungs are no more mythical than the characters of the New Testament and are actually rooted in history. What I reveal to you today is that their bloodline has survived!

Throughout the western world thousands of people with the blood of the Volsungs live and breathe and yet are blissfully unaware of their lineage! Indeed only in recent months have I become aware that two of my kinswomen are of the Volsung line through their maternal ancestry. I want to make it quite clear here and now that I am not of this lineage although my blood has become mixed with the Volsungs. Their maternal relatives have been made aware of this heritage. However being of the Volsung blood does not always guarantee a Volsung mindset. I suspect that 99.99% of them are unaware of their heritage and even if the majority were informed few would understand its true significance and even less would act upon it. Nevertheless this revelation should give us hope for the future for from this line will emerge the future leaders and heroes of our race. It gives us a focal point, even if symbolic that we can rally around.

My kinswomen trace their ancestry direct to our High Lord Woden via Aslaug, the daughter of Sigurd Sigmundsson and the shieldmaiden Brynhildr. Aslaug had had 4 sons via Ragnar Lodbrok: Ivar the Boneless, Hvitserk, Ragnvald the Mountain-High and Sigurd Snake-in-the-Eye. It is through the historical hero Hrolf the Ganger that my kinswomen trace their ancestry to the Volsungs via Sigurd Snake-in-the-Eye. It is conjectured by some scholars that the Germanic hero of heroes, Sigurd/Siegfried may be none other than the first century chieftain of the Cherusci and saviour of Germany, Arminius/Hermann. I am undecided about this and keep an open mind.

In the coming months I will write more about the Volsungs, possibly on my Celto-Germanic Culture, Myth and History blog. Here are links to some of my earlier articles about the Volsungs:,,,,

Mimir as Adolf Hitler: Odin Mimir Befragend (1905)

Does life imitate art or does art imitate life? Strangely there are instances where the artist can tap into the world of the numinous and become almost a prophet. I have already drawn my readers' attention to the 1889 painting of Die Wilde Jagd by Franz Ritter von Stuck which features Wotan with the face of Adolf Hitler. 1889 was also the year of Hitler's birth.

Recently I encountered another painting, this time by the wonderful artist Emil Doepler (1855-1922), entitled Odin Mimir Befragend (Odin Questioning Mimir) from 1905, when Hitler was an unknown 16 year old. Mimir's face bears a striking resemblance to that of an older Adolf Hitler! This painting is significant as my readers will be aware that I along with many others regard Adolf Hitler as an Avatar, a bodily incarnation of the German God Wotan. Wotan, or Odin if you prefer consulted with a much older deity Mimir who was regarded by Snorri Sturluson as one of the Aesir (Ynglinga Saga).

"Mit ihm sandten die Asen Mimir, einen sehr weisen Mann." (Grimnir Harbardson's translation)
WOTANS KRIEGER'S TRANSLATION: "With him the Aesir sent Mimir, a very wise man."
The context certainly does imply that Mimir was counted amongst the Aesir along with His companion Hoenir. How interesting that in Doepler's painting we have Wotan/Odin consulting with Mimir/Hitler for advice. According to Rudolf Simek Mimir means 'the rememberer, the wise one' (Dictionary of Northern Mythology). It may very well be that Hitler was an incarnation of the deepest memory of the Germanic peoples. In other words Hitler as Mimir represents the Collective Unconscious (to use a Jungian term) or the Blood Memory of the Germanic peoples. For those of you who are familiar with the wonderful film by Leni Riefenstahl Triumph des Willens (1935) Deputy Führer (and Aryan martyr) Rudolf  Hess spoke these words when introducing Hitler to the adoring crowds at Nürnberg (mountain of the Norns):

"Die Partei ist Hitler!
Hitler aber ist Deutschland
wie Deutschland Hitler ist!"
"The party is Hitler! Hitler however is Germany as Germany is Hitler" (WOTANS KRIEGER'S TRANSLATION)

Hitler truly was an exceedingly ancient and wise soul, the very embodiment of his people.

The Hammer of Thunor and its Popularisation

I have in the past discussed the significance of the Hammer of ThunorThonar/Thunar/Donar/Thor in previous articles, pointing out that it is not only a symbol which is holy to our folc but is an important means of awakening the Ario-Germanic peoples from their long slumber in order that they may ACT. See my articles Thor's Hammer: The Germanic Expression of the Aryan Swastika and along with my discussion with kinsmen on

The thorny issue (no runic pun intended) of Mjolnir becoming an icon of modern popular culture is something which I frequently meditate upon. The positive aspect of this is that our symbols become more widely known and this in itself helps to awaken the Blood Memory of Germanic and Aryan people. This is surely our aim? The negative aspect is that to a certain extent its poularisation lends to the sacrality of the symbol being diminished. There is no easy answer to this. It has been suggested or implied by some that the symbol become in a sense abandoned by us for everyday use whilst we adopt alternative sacred and esoteric symbols. This line of thinking is understandable but it would be a mistake.

Frequently when asked about the Mjolnir I am wearing at that particular instance (I have a predilection for collecting them) people assume that I am either a biker or a re-enactor! No doubt this is mainly due to my appearance, having a beard, long hair and a tendency to wear black. It is rarely assumed that I do so for political reasons-this is of course an advantage because the enquirer can be taken off guard as I then procede to implant our message-subtly into their unconscious mind! By appearing as a neo-nazi knuckledragger we achieve absolutely nothing and merely reinforce jewish Hollywood imposed stereotypes upon ourselves! This is a habit we must break! The more intelligent of our kinsmen are beginning to understand this.

What is important or should be important to us a practitioners of the Wodenist faith is what the Mjolnir symbolises to us on a personal and spiritual level, not just how others interpret it. For me the Mjolnir helps me to focus my concentration when communicating with the Gods, most especially Thunor who I regard as my personal guardian. (This fact was once communicated to me via a dream that someone conveyed to me 7 years ago). Mass produced Mjolnirs can be of variable quality but it is wrong to assume that ones made outside of Europe are necessarily of inferior quality. The reverse is often the case. With designs being copied left, right and centre it is extremely difficult to find out where and who made it. For those who appreciate Mjolnirs which are unique and have a known origin the website Etsy is an excellent place to go to. I recently had an iron Mjolnir of about 4 1/2 inches long crafted from old iron that had been struck by lightning and this came from a North American artisan. It can be worn as a pendant or used as a blot ritual Hammer.

Of course we can decide to wear other symbols in addition to the Mjolnir or indeed a Mjolnir that has other symbols, including esoteric ones crafted into it. These are not difficult to find and again Etsy is an excellent resource.

As discussed in previous articles Mjolnir is a representation of the Fylfot but one in which we can wear on a daily and open basis without concern or censure. The use of the Fylfot I reserve for secret rites and never use this openly. This most sacred symbol is largely misunderstood by 99.99 % of the masses and is also not fully undestood even by those who are concerned with the Aryan awakening. Its open and public adoption during the Third Reich had a powerful effect in the awakening of the Volk-an effect which had been considered and planned in advance but unfortunately it now has negative connotations in the collective hive mind.

Heinrich Heine in 1834 had this to say about our God Thunor and most certainly this was a prophecy regarding the coming Third Reich:

"(he will) terrible because he will appear in alliance with the primitive powers of nature, able to evoke the demonic energies of old German Pantheism-which there will awake in him that Battle-madness which we find among the ancient Teutonic races who fought neither to kill nor conquer, but for the very love of fighting itself.
".......then will come crashing and roaring forth the wild madness of the old champions, the insane berserker rage, of which Northern poets say and sing....The old stone gods will rise from long forgotten ruin, and rub the dust of a thousand years from their eyes, and Thor, leaping to life, with his giant hammer, will smash the Gothic cathedrals.
"German thunder is indeed German, and not in a hurry, and it comes rolling slowly onward; but it will, and when ye hear the crash as naught crashed before in the whole history of the world, then know that der Deutsche Donner, our German Thunder, has at last hit the mark....There will be played in Germany a drama compared to which the French Revolution will only be an innocent child.
"But once blood again begins coursing in the veins of the German people, once they again feel their heart beating, no longer will they listen to the pious chatter of the Bavarian hypocrites, or to the mystic murmours of the Swabian imbeciles; their ear will only hear the great voice of one man.
"Who is this man? He is the man whom the German people awaits, the man who will turn to them their lives and their happiness-the happiness and the life they have so longed for in their dreams. How much longer will you wait-you whom our old people have prophesied with burning desire-you for whom youth waits with so much impatience-you who carry the divine sceptre of liberty, and the imperial crown with the cross."(On the History and Religion of Philosophy in Germany)

What was accomplished in the past may be accomplished again but the Aryan Widerstand and Erwachung must be based upon a sound folkish footing.

Germanic Heathenism-a Living Faith

For many of us our faith in the Northern Gods is a living reality. It is not just a matter of dry book study but a living relationship with our native Germanic Gods and Goddeses. The deities who I am most strongly drawn to are Thunor, Woden and Frea. I turn to Thunor for strength, courage and protection. In the past where I would pray to the xtian god for this, I now turn to the mighty Lord Thunor who does not let His servants down. A quick prayer (this is a Germanic heathen practice despite the xtian connotations) and a grasp of my Hammer and I feel that all is well. As the Icelandic Sagas teach us He did not fail His servants even in the period after conversion.

To Woden I turn to for wisdom and enlightenment. It is He who speaks to us in the Runes and in our dreams. When seaking guidance from Him I will turn first to the holy Runes and I will also seek communication from Him in my dreams, after I have requested it. Not only does Woden communicate to us in dreams but so do the other deities and the shades of the dead (I know this from experience). Woden is the archetype of questing Germanic man as I have discussed before in my article

To Frea we turn to for reassurance and comfort. It is my opinion that Frea and Frigg are one and the same deity but with different aspects. I have already discussed this in my article
The fact that we turn to various deities and not just one is an illustration of the natural polytheistic nature of Aryan man. Even xtianity cannot escape this with its concept of the holy trinity or triune god and the deification of the 'mother of god' by Roman Catholics. Indeed this is also a heathen concept.

In addition to the enacting of our Wheel of the Year rites it is important that in some way we acknowledge our deities on a daily basis even if it is just a quick prayer to Thunor at the beginning of the day for protection, a few words to Woden before we drift off into sleep (His domain, being the great Psychopomp and mover between worlds and states of consciousness) or greeting Eostre with the rising of the sun in the east.

Some practitioners of the Germanic heathen tradition also use meditational beads which may or may not contain runic markings and amulets as aids to reflection, meditation and prayer. This has its roots in Indo-European pre-xtian cultures and we should not be afraid to experiment with different tools merely because the xtians have co-opted most of our practices. Likewise images of the deities can assist in focusing our minds, aided perhaps by incense.

Das Blitzbündel-an Update

Those of you who have read my articles on Das Blitzbündel on Die Armanenschaft der Ario-Germanen and Celto-Germanic Culture, Myth and History, inspired by Runebinder's article may be interested to know that this very same symbol is starting to gain prominence. Why, I do not know. Perhaps this is an example of Wotan moving in our Collective Unconscious, communicating with us in symbols rather than words as these are more potent.

I noticed today that Weltnetzladen is now stocking stickers which feature this highly esoteric symbol: The symbol is also available in yet another ring, a silver one this time from a German website

Huginn and Muninn, Symbols of the First Function

I have recently been dwelling upon the relationship between Woden and His ravens Huginn and Munnin and came across a most interesting passage in Edred Thorsson's Northern Magic. Rune Mysteries and Shamanism. I initially read this book many years ago but only recently have I begun to appreciate its full merits. The primary focus of the book is on the Younger Futhark, a rune row which is very much ignored in mainstream books on runology. Edred follows the Dumezelian tripartite division of the Aesir/Vanir into the First Function (Sovereignity), Second Function (Warfare) and the Third Function (Production/Fertility). He divides the First Function into law, governed by Tyr and magic, governed by Odin.

"The first function is that of judgement, rationality, law, and measurement (embodied by Tiw/Tyr) and of inspiration, intuition, and transformation (embodied by Woden/Odhinn). These two together form the sovereign and intellectual part of the world and of the human being-consciousness. They are the Gods of the ancient kings, judges, poets, and magicians." (Thorsson)

This division of the First Function has a direct parallel with Woden's two ravens, Huginn and Muninn (thought and memory). Hugin represents the rational and that which can be objectively observed whilst Muninn represents to the Collective Unconscious, the Blood Memory or Racial Memory. The synthesis of the two parts is surely the objective of the Woden initiate? An indepth study of our sacred literature and runelore supported by the development of the intuition and psychic abilities should be at the forefront of the initiate's endeavours.

"The true Odinist-that is, one who follows the particular path outlined by the character of the living god Woden-is a person who seeks to understand the deepest cosmic mysteries and then to put these mysteries into a communicable form to be expressed in the world at large. This is part of doing the work of Woden. The path of Odhinn is one which combines the intellectual with the intuitive-but which in both cases strives toward the objectively real and powerful. The highest aim of the Odinist is self-transformation-according to the mysto-magical model provided by Odhinn." (Edred)

Huginn and Muninn, the Mind of Woden

Woden's two ravens are symbolic of 'thought' (Huginn) and 'memory' (Muninn). The association of Woden with the raven is an ancient one and precedes the Viking Age with "Decorations on a helmet found in a Swedish grave of the Vendel period show Odin as a rider with a spear accompanied by two birds." (Dictionary of Northern Mythology, Rudolf Simek).

Indeed golden Migration Age bracteates also depict the same iconography. It has been suggested by some scholars that the ravens are bird-shaped valkyries and in this regard I am reminded of the Irish battle Goddess the Morrighan who was able to take the form of the crow on the field of battle and was the patron Goddess of Irish bands of warriors as was Woden of the Germanic Männerbunde.

Indeed according to J.T. Sibley (The Divine Thunderbolt. Missile of the Gods) the raven, vulture, crow or eagle are envoys of the sky/thunder God. In fact both Woden and Thunor are different aspects of the supreme Aryan sky God. Woden's spear Gungnir was according to J.T. Sibley "modeled on Tyr's spear, which in turn was derived from Zeus/Jupiter's oak-shafted spear." This is interesting as I have maintained for some time now that in order that we may understand Woden we must go beyond what is written of Odin in the Eddas which is a much later development of this divine archetype. What Jung wrote in his 1936 essay Wotan is of more relevance to us as Saxons and Anglo-Saxons. Let us not forget that this deity does not have His origin in Scandinavia but in the mountains and forests of continental Germania. He is our Woden/Wodan/Wotan.

"Wod/Wodan/Woden/Odin seems to have originally been a relatively local continental Germanic sky/storm god, possibly in Lower Saxony." (Sibley)
"The apex of Odin's victorious career is reached in the Migration Age. The story in Snorri's Hemskringla and the preface to the Edda tell us about this; they make Odin emigrate from Saxony to Scandinavia and, after various vicissitudes of warfare, force the Vanes to acknowledge him as supreme god." (Our Forefathers the Gothonic Nations. A Manual of the Ethnography of the Gothic, German, Dutch, Anglo-Saxon, Frisian and Scandinavian Peoples, Gudmund Schuette) 
"The primitive conception of Odin is the German storm giant Wode, leader of the 'wild army', O.H.G. Wuotis-her, i.e. the procession of the homeless dead through the air." (Schuette)

Woden's origins can indeed be traced back to the Germanic Bronze Age:

"Pictorial monuments: it is possible to trace depictions of Odin back to the Bronze Age if the large spear-bearing god-figures on some southern Swedish rock carvings may be interpreted as representing Odin." (Simek)

However H.R. Ellis Davidson is of a different opinion:

"In Tiwaz we have an early Germanic war god, an ancestor of Odin. He had great powers, and extensive sacrifices were made to him. He was a one-handed god, and a one-handed figure wielding a weapon is seen among Bronze Age rock-engravings in Scandinavia it has been suggested that his worship may go back to very early times in the north, and that the myth of the binding of the wolf is of great antiquity." (Gods and Myths of Northern Europe)

I tend to agree with Ellis Davidson. If the Cult of Odin is a later import from Lower Saxony to Scandinavia it unlikely in my opinion to date back to the Bronze Age but rather the Iron Age. Tiwaz is the one God who can be found in the most ancient Aryan period and was eclipsed by first Thunaraz and then Wodanaz. All three Gods Thunor, Tiw and Woden are aspects of the same deity who have developed in different ways amongst the Germanic tribes and peoples.

Going back to the issue of the two ravens Huginn and Muninn it is abundantly clear to me that in the reconstruction and evolution of our sacred Aryan Germanic religion we must bear in mind that whilst we are not imprisoned in the past as some glorified Viking re-enactment group we are nonetheless bound to root our 21st century religion on the bedrock of the past. Huginn as a concept of rationality and learning teaches us this fact. However Muninn also reminds me that our religion is not dry book study but a living and evolving dynamic spiritual path and what the Eddas, Sagas and Rune Poems do not tell us we can recover from memory, racial memory, blood memory, the Collective Racial Unconscious if you will! In Munnin there is room for inspiration and prophecy. Basically our Wodenic religion is or should be a fusion of Huginn, the rational and Muninn, the inspirational just as the human brain has two hemispheres, the left brain being objective, rational and logical whilst the right brain is subjective,reflective and intuitive. We need both sides of the brain to function in a balanced way if we are to be balanced as people. Huginn and Muninn are outward symbols of how our High Lord Woden operates in the nine realms and we as his children and servants should do likewise.

Great Civilisations, the Product of Race

Great civilisations are the product of a racial elite. Sometimes as in the ancient Egyptian civilisation it is a small caste of rulers that establish and maintain the civilisation. We must be careful here to distinguish between civilisation and culture which are two overlapping but distinctly separate concepts. Civilisations are human societies that have "complex cultural, political, and legal organization;  an advanced state in social development", whilst culture is  "the total of the inherited ideas, beliefs, values, and knowledge, which constitute the shared bases of social action, the total range of ideas and activities of a people." (Collins Concise English Dictionary).  I suppose one could say that culture is the intellectual and spiritual matrix that is the foundation of civilisation which is its external expression in the dynamic world of action. Culture may contain language, beliefs, ideas and is the expression of a particular folk, a nation in its truest ethnic sense (of which very few exist today).

Some may argue that civilisation and culture may exist outside of and be independent of race, ethnicity or nation. To a certain extent that may be true but that does not negate my argument that for the culture or civilisation to exist in the first place it must be rooted in a race. Where other races adopt or take over the civilisation or culture decay begins to set in and inevitably the whole thing ceases to exist after a while. We only have to look at the great civilisations of the past: Babylonia, Egypt, Aryan India, Rome etc to see that once the racial stock of the founders and maintainers of empire and civilisation is diluted the end is in sight.

The United States of America should in my view be considered as an empire for it has hundreds of military bases throughout the world, outside of course the great countries of Russia and China which it inevitably views as competitors for world dominance. The presence of American military bases are not there to protect the countries they are situated in but to remind the host country that they are merely vassals of the USA who dominates them. A good example is the United Kingdom which even shares its spy bases (eg Menwith Hill, Harrogate) with the Americans, allowing them to spy on millions of British citizens on a daily basis. This is all done under the Orwellian sounding phrase to protect freedom. In protecting freedom they attempt to make slaves of us all.

However even the seemingly powerful USA is beginning to collapse. A country that was founded by people of northern European stock has in the course of 100 years become a racially bastardised entity and it is this bastardisation which will cause it to fall. By bastardisation I am not just referring to miscegenation (which is surely a factor) but the large presence of people now of various races to be found within its borders so that eventually it will be the tail that wags the dog! This sorry state of affairs is of course not confined to just the USA but is to be found in Britain (most especially in England) and other northern European countries. This calamitous situation has been orchestrated by a faceless and powerful rootless elite whose  aim for centuries has been the corruption and bastardisation of nations in order that it may accomplish elite total world dominance. The countries of the world are to be reduced to compliant and indebted serfs of uncertain race. This elite understands why empires and civilisations fall. It is through racial corruption.

The problem with empires in the accepted sense of the term is that they become evermore multinational, multiethnic and multiracial. The Collins Concise English Dictionary defines empire as "an aggregate of peoples and territories under the rule of a single person, oligarchy, or sovereign state."  The lesson of history is that the more an empire extends itself (which its dynamic requires it to do) the less powerful the founding race becomes and has to rely on racially alien elements to hold the empire together. The Roman empire is a good example of over-extension. Rome sought to dominate the northern European Barbarians and started to heavilly rely upon them to be both its foot soldiers and commanders (eg Arminius) and eventually these Barbarians started to slowly take over the apparatus of power. In the USA the southern states relied upon negro slaves for economic purposes. The emancipation of the slaves then gave these former slaves expectations of civil rights so that eventually a negro became its President!

If the situation in our lands is not confronted and remedied then within another 100 years (this is a conservative estimate) our peoples will be living in racial enclaves in their own lands, virtually reduced to the status of the American Indians of today on their reservations. The question is how do we fight this? One thing we must not do is keep quiet or be cowed by the authorities who will use every trick in the book to silence opposition to our slow genocide. We must educate others, particularly the young who are subject to steady brainwashing at school, on television and other forms of media. A good example of brainwashing are the countless children's programmes which feature multiracial presenting teams, usually a black youth and a blonde girl, enticing young minds into believing that not only is this acceptable but even desireable, aiming their propaganda mainly at females who tend to be more susceptible and impressionable. Even programmes that have a supposed historical basis will feature people of different races as members of society, giving children the impression that England has always been a multiracial society, flying in the face of facts which these broadcasting companies do not care about so long as they seek to win awards for diversity and inclusivity, the latter being the latest of these Orwellian sounding watchwords and increase viewing ratings. We must combat this by engaging in counter-propaganda.

Not content with having created the disaster of the multicultural and multiracial society the government now is seeking to ensure that all public bodies including the Police are inclusive and representative of the diverse nature of the society that they serve. Of course this diversity and inclusivity are not just confined to race and gender but also extend to those who have what are euphemastically referred to as alternative lifestyles or to be more specific, homosexuals. Nothing pleases the establishment more than the prospect of an industrial or public sector leader who is female, lesbian, black (or inceasingly mixed race) and if possible disabled. Many public sector organisations have leg up programmes which aim to give homosexuals, non-Aryans and females a distinct advantage over the normal healthy Aryan male, who despite all denials by the liberal establishment are increasingly under-represented in many senior public sector positions. So instead of Aryan societies being governed by the racially fittest it is now truly the era of the rule of the Underman-or woman!

The tide however is beginning to turn. In the last year or so we have begun to see the awakening of Aryan youth in this country. Their boldness and courage is refreshing to see. The society which David Levita-Cameron espouses is one in which our youth are expected to conform and adhere to an artificially constructed and establishment imposed set of British values, whatever that may mean? Our Aryan youth, our Iron Youth reject these poisonous values for they are anti-values and are inimical to the interests and the survival of our Nordic race. Woden is stirring in the DNA of our Ario-Germanic folk whether our youth are conscious of this or not. More often than not these are unconscious impulses that are at work as this is how Woden manifests Himself. Alfred Rosenberg makes frequent references to Wotan/Wodan/Odin in his The Myth of the Twentieth Century and several times asserts that "Odin is dead". However Rosenbeg on the conclusion of his book makes this remarkable observation: "One form of Odin is dead, that is, the Odin who was the highest of the many Gods who appeared as the embodiment of a generation still given up to natural symolisms. But Odin as the eternal mirrored image of the primal spiritual powers of Nordic man lives today just as he did over 5,000 years ago." This observation is even more remarkable when one considers that this book was published in 1930, 6 years before Carl Gustav Jung's essay Wotan! This demonstrates that truths are eternal and not just the product of a single man.

There is an awful lot of hand wringing going on at the moment about the hordes of muslims going abroad to fight alongside terrorist organisations. Much is made of these terrorists as not being real muslims as Islam is supposedly a religion of peace. It is no more a religion of peace than is christianity. Both religions were the product of semitic intolerance and expanded through warfare, bloodshed and terror. All that is happening today is that the muslims have returned to their old methods of forced proselytism.  By opening the floodgates and allowing hordes of muslims to reside in the 'west' the muslims of today have managed to accomplish something that their ancestors failed to do in the Middle Ages. The enemy is no longer at the gates but within! This is something that the establishment now realises but is impotent to do anything about so instead it preaches about "British values".

This England is no longer the England of our ancestors and our youth have rejected the England that it has become. They reject the false anti-Aryan anti-values of Levita-Cameron and they assert the values of the blood!

The Oak, a Sacred Aryan Tree

Throughout the Aryan world, the oak tree was considered sacred to the Thunder God. Anything that has been struck by lightning was set apart as holy unto Him and regarded as such by our ancestors. People who were struck by lightning and survived according to J.T. Sibley in her remarkable book The Divine Thunderbolt. Missile of the Gods:

"were usually believed to have gained special powers from the sky god, especially the gift of divination or an ability to communicate directly with the gods, and especially with the sky/thunder god."

No doubt such people went onto be the shamans of their tribes. Apparently those people who died after being struck by lightning were not allowed to be cremated (the natural rite of our ancestors) as this would be considered a sacrilege to the Thunder God. Instead they were probably buried.

Trees are particularly vunerable to lightning strikes, most especially the oak tree. According to the author wood from a lightning struck tree is much sought after (and indeed still is) and was used for the "construction of temples, altars, tools of worship, amulets and charms, idols of deities or spirits, in folk medicine, and so forth." It would be a good idea for my readers to seek out such wood and use it as part of their rites and for the construction of amulets of protection. As an aside I am awaiting the delivery of a special Thor's Hammer specially hand forged for me from old iron taken from a lightning struck bridge. Such an item should be considered thrice holy, being of iron (sacred to Thunor), blessed by lightning and in the form of a Hammer. I can think of little which is more sacred than that!

The oak is 60 times more likely to be struck by lightning than for instance a beech tree. As I have demonstrated before the oak in etymologically linked to the name of the Aryan Thunder God, *Perkunos or *Perkwunos, *perk being the Indo-European root for oak, from which we derive the Latin Quercus. Some scholars including the author of the aforementioned book consider the central European Hercynian Forest (which includes the Harz of northern Germany) to be derived from this root via the Proto-Celtic *erquu(n)s. No doubt this great vast forest endured many such lightning strikes and in the course of time the Teutons, Celts, Balts and Slavs came to strongly associate the oak with the supreme Sky and Thunder God. This is particularly the case with the Baltic and Slavic names of the deity which more closely resemble the original name, ie Russian and Czech Perun, Latvian Perkons, Lithuanian Perkunas, the Prussian Perkonis but also the Estonian Pikker, Old Indian Parjanja and the Germanic Fjorgyn. 

According to Miss Sibley Odin's spear Gungnir was "modeled on Tyr's spear", a conclusion that I also came to independently some time ago. Tyr was the original Sky God and His presence can be detected back into the mists of pre-history. In turn Tyr's spear was based upon the oak-shafted spear of Zeus or Jupiter, oak of course being also sacred to this latter God.

In the Baltic lands bronze idols of the Thunder God would be placed under oak trees, a custom worthy for us to emulate today, providing of course that the tree is in a secluded place, out of the way of prying eyes and hands. Donar's Oak in Hesse was felled by the xtian missionary and cultural vandal Boniface in the 8th century CE. Wood taken from the oak was then used for the construction of a church.

Oak is represented in the Northumbrian/Anglo-Saxon rune Ac. The Celtic Ogham also has a few (stave) related to the oak-Duir, etymologically linked to Druid via *dru-wid, "knower of oak-trees." (The Book of Ogham, Edred Thorsson).

Symbolically the oak has long been associated with the German people and featured on the Iron Cross. It is of course also associated with England. However the following countries also celebrate the oak as their national tree: Serbia, Cyprus, Estonia, France, Moldova, Romania, Latvia, Lithuania, Wales, Galicia and Bulgaria.
