The Conflict Between Woden and the Desert Religions

For decades now the concept of World War II being a holy war, whether from an 'allied' or a German perspective has become well established. Mystics and intellectuals such as Miguel Serrano, Savitri Devi and Julius Evola have all in their own way given a spiritual interpretation to the war and the role of Adolf Hitler as a Wotan Avatar has been made known.

What has been largely been ignored is the way in which World War I fits into this theme. Establishment historians have drawn connections between the 2 wars, arguing that the unjust terms of the ignoble Versailles Treaty sowed the seeds of WWII. In a sense they are correct but as with all materialists they ignore the spiritual roots of the war, choosing instead to analyse the political causes.

WWI was the first attempt by a newly resurgent Germany in reversing the involution brought about by the Kali Yuga. This may not have been consciously perceived or fully understood at the time but nevertheless that was the spiritual reason. Spiritual decay had beset northern Europe following the Industrial Revolution and the increasingly mechanistic and materialist development of European society. The roots of this development can be traced right back to the enforced xtianisation of Europe where man was cut off from his natural environment SPIRITUALLY, being taught by the church to view the earth in purely material terms and this led to the beginning of the exploitation and ruination of Mother Earth which is continuing to this very day although people are starting to wake up to this and are opposing revolting practices such as fracking.

Only a heathen outlook views the earth as a living organism which it is and we should as with all other life forms live in harmony with Her. Today man is not only cut off spiritually from Mother Earth but in many cases PHYSICALLY so that many children living in concrete jungles have no idea even what a tree looks like. This physical ALIENATION increases the spiritual alienation felt by man and weaker people resort to drugs and alcohol to fill the void in their souls in this post-xtian multicultural and multiracial society. Attempts to end this alienation through political means results in censure by the oppressive establishment and laws are created in order to entrench our alienation and lack of effective resistance. Only by returning to our pre-xtians Gods and getting back in touch physically and spiritually with our natural environment can we end this alienation.

Mystics today view Adolf Hitler as an Avatar of Wotan with a mission to free German man, Germanic man and the wider Aryan community from this enslavement to the desert god jehovah who is effectively the same god as allah. Those who were spiritually aware on either side of the war were aware of this at the time and even before the war began. The Scottish occult writer, Lewis Spence (1874-1955) writing in Occult Causes of the Present War (1940) had this to say about Wotan:

"....the German god Wotan, who was probably the first Nazi." (page 51)
"Along with the Scriptures, the symbols of Christianity must be cast into the fire of Wotan. (page 107)
"Perhaps the saddest feature of this breaking away from the Faith of centuries is the bedevilment of the minds of the youth of Germany. In the privately printed literature of the Nordic Faith Movement prepared for the instruction of the young, the ancient pantheism of Germany is lauded and rites and ceremonies are devised to take the place of Christmas and other Christian festivals. It is particularly impressed upon teachers that no hope of a life to come or any idea of salvation must be allowed to obtrude itself upon the child consciousness. 'We are fighting', it is claimed in one of these publications, 'as our ancestors said, for the fashioning of the world by the side of the gods-that is, the German gods, not the God of an effete and outworn Christianity. It is urgently necessary that we should all, and especially the school youth, become well acquainted with the Early Faith. Not that we become worshippers of Wotan and Donar......."  (page 123)  

Spence's book focuses on WWII and National Socialism, trying to blacken the movement and present it and our native Gods as diabolical-a typical xtian ruse and one in which our ancient ancestors were well aware of. However he also draws a link to Kaiser Wilhem II and argues that "hidden and destructive forces of malign and Satanic character" hurried him into WWI. It is quite possible that he may have been influenced by Carl Gustav Jung's Wotan, published in 1936.

Canon Alan Wilkinson published his The Church of England and the First World War in 1978 and he identifies the spiritual source and origins of the conflict in the words of one minister at the time:

"This truly is a war of ideals; Odin is ranged against Christ, and Berlin is seeking to prove its supremacy over Bethlehem. Every shot that is fired, every bayonet thrust that gets home, every life that is sacrificed, is in very truth 'for His Name's sake'."

This was the thinking of many English clergymen at the time although it has to be said that some did oppose the war .Clearly the church did think of WWI in terms of spiritual conflict as we should too and this conflict continued into WWII and right up to the present time. Attempts have been made via political means to awaken our folk over the years, some more successful than others but all are doomed to failure until the founders of these movements, parties and organisations realise that any lasting success must be built upon spiritual foundations and that foundation is not a hebrew carpenter but Woden.

The founder of Woden's Folk revealed this anagram to us: Ragnarok=Korangar and I in turn, inspired no doubt by this, discovered the anagram Walhalla=Allahlaw. This my readers is a prophecy which we are seeing come to pass in our time. The spiritual dimension of this conflict is still there whether it be Woden against jehovah or allah: it is essentially the same semitic desert archetype that has no connection with the blood, spirit and soil of our folk. Until our people return to Woden the alienation which besets them will continue and many will still cling to their psychedelic crutches.

Woden will Triumph over the Dark




Whilst celebrating our Yule rite today I was very conscious of Woden's role as the God who presides over the Solstice, the God who is battling the forces of darkness in order that the light may triumph. As always when raising the mead horn I give honour to Woden first for He is the All-Father and it is to Him that we must give the first place of honour to.

Likewise His son Wid-Ar is also a God who will triumph over the forces of darkness. When the Fenris Wolf devours Woden who represents the sun, the light, Wid-Ar will exact His revenge and release the power of the sun who is reborn in Widar, for the father and the son are one. The essence of Woden will not die: He will be reborn in Wid-Ar, the Ar-God who comes again-wieder kommt.

Our folk are in the thrall of the dark forces of the NWO but the elite of the NWO realise now that their time is short-the Aryan peoples of Europe and other parts of the world are waking up from their deep sleep and becoming aware of the peril that threatens their biological and cultural existence. These blogs and Wodenism in general is not concerned with politics but with the spiritual order of things and the battle that we wage is against dark spiritual forces. We fight this battle with spiritual weapons-something that those who are more politically active mock but this is because they do not understand that our struggle is rooted in the spiritual world and it is there that the battle must be primarily waged in order that the minds of our folk may be awakened and they release themselves from the psychological shackles that the servants of the NWO which includes the British government, have placed upon them.


The shackles are not merely physical in nature but mental and spiritual. People are now so cowed by enforced political correctness-which by the way is getting worse year by year, that they are afraid not only to speak their minds but to think thoughts that have not been sanctioned by the NWO. Indeed the Doublespeak and Thought Crime of George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four is becoming a reality. The government realises that if it can control the thoughts of the population (through self-policing) then it can control not merely the expression of opinions but people's actions and it is this which makes it so insidious and the NWO with its national and local minions so evil.

Without a successful victory to this spiritual war there can be no happy conclusion but the sacred writings of our folk along with our folklore and legends make it most clear that the light will follow the dark and Woden will ultimately triumph.

Hail Woden!

The Eye of Sauron Update: The Royal Mail and Others




This article should be read in conjunction with http://aryan-myth-and-metahistory.blogspot.co.uk/2016/11/the-eye-of-sauron-britain-now-police.html

We are all aware that the UK government along with other governments throughout the world, not just in the western hemisphere, have been snooping on our Internet communications now for years. The passing of the Investigatory Powers Act last month merely puts their previously illegal spying on its citizens on a legal footing. What I have pondered about is the extent to which the Royal Mail (now a private company) snoops or allows others to snoop on our post. I came across this rather interesting article on the Internet: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/policy_on_monitoring_of_an_indiv

The Royal Mail refuses to answer the question as to whether they carry out monitoring of people's post and cites national security as the reason for not complying with this Freedom of Information Request:

"Our Security Department have confirmed that releasing this
information into the public domain would prejudice security."

It beggars belief that the Royal Mail which is no longer a public body should have a 'Security Department'! It is quite clear from their response that they do indeed monitor our post and I know of an activist who experienced this at his local Post Office and was carted back off to jail for sending unPC political material through the post which had been intercepted and opened at his local Post Office/Sorting Office. So it certainly does go on but the real question is, is it mass monitoring or only selective monitoring?

In addition to the recently passed legislation we also have the infamous Regulation of Investigative Powers Act, 2000 (RIPA) which allows not only organisations like the Royal Mail but also local councils to spy on their citizens. This is legislation that was intended to prevent terrorism but is being used to beef up the powers of all sorts of regulatory bodies for even 'crimes' as trivial as overfilling your rubbish bin! So we know that regardless of the grounds for introducing legislation it is almost always misused. Furthermore these organisations such as the Royal Mail even refuse to acknowledge that they make use of these powers, quoting the legislation to avoid answering the inconvenient question. Even BBC TV Licensing use this legislation but refuse to comment further. See http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/bbc-and-royal-mail-using-ripa-terror-powers-to-spy-on-public-8070057.html

The Post Office which is technically now a separate body from the Royal Mail but has a shared past is infamous for spying. See http://www.historyextra.com/feature/5-things-you-didn%E2%80%99t-know-about-secret-spying-arm-post-office

Organisations that can use the powers contained within RIPA include British Police Forces, MI5, MI6, GCHQ, SOCA, the Prison Service, HMRC, Office of Fair Trading, the Armed Forces, MOD, Environment Agency, Financial Services Authority, Food Standards Agency, all local authorities, all other government departments, all fire authorities, Food Standards Agency, Gambling Commission, Gangmasters Licensing Authority, Care Quality Commission, Health & Safety Executive, NHS bodies, Inspector of Education, Information Commission and the Royal Pharmaceuticals Society. Why the Royal Pharmaceuticals Society and the NHS should be given these snooping powers is beyond me! See https://www.liberty-human-rights.org.uk/sites/default/files/introduction-to-ripa-august-2010.pdf It makes for chilling reading!

As a footnote, whilst carrying out research for this article an attempt was made to hack into my PC (something which rarely happens). Fortunately I have decent Internet Security software, anti-malware software, a VPN and a C Cleaner but it goes to show that the powers that be will still attempt to monitor anyone who brings their nefarious actions to the scrutiny of daylight!

Woden, a God of Frenzy and Divine Madness




A study of Old English words containing the element wod can prove illuminating when considering the character of our High Lord Woden. For this article I have relied mainly upon J.R. Clarke Hall's excellent-A Concise Anglo-Saxon Dictionary.

Words indicative of madness and frenzy contain this element:

wodendream-madness.

wod-frec-madly ravenous.

wodheortnes-madness.

wodlic-foolish, mad, furious (as an adverb wodlice it also means madly, furiously, blasphemously).

wodnes-madness, frenzy, folly.

wodscipe-insanity.

wodseoc-mad.

wodthrag-paroxysm, madness, fury.

wed-fury, rage, foolishness, madness.

wedan-to be or become mad, rage


It is interesting to note that whilst all of the above words are indicative of connotations of madness, frenzy, fury and folly the adverb wodlice can also mean 'blasphemously'. I believe the reason for this unusual meaning is one of distortion by xtian clerics who by demonising Woden associated the adverb wodlice with blasphemy but this I contend was not an original meaning as the concept of blasphemy is both xtian and unGermanic and should really be disregarded for the purpose of this study but it is interesting to note nonetheless.

The God Odin is often associated with the intellect, with the left side of the brain but it is more than clear that our Woden is primarily associated with the right side of the brain which is concerned with the creative elements of the brain and the Unconscious. I believe that it is in the light of this that we must approach Woden, not with the intellect but with the so-called irrational, the Unconscious, with the dream state. It is only when we abandon our 20th century rationalism can we hope to find and indeed approach this God. This is why it never ceases to surprise me when our enemies try to defame us by labelling us as 'mentally ill' they demonstrate most clearly that they have not the slightest understanding of Woden or for that matter of us!

By contrast with Woden, Odr although derived from *wodaz has the meaning of  mind, wit, soul and sense, more indicative of the left side functions of the brain. The OHG wuoti (madness) derives from the Proto-Germanic *wodin which in turn derives from *wodaz. The Middle Dutch woet has the meaning of madness. The Old Saxon wodian also means to rage as does the OHG wuoten with the added meaning of to be insane.

In order that we may draw closer to our Woden we must consider much more than ever before that we embrace the irrational for that which appears to be irrational to modern man is in fact the true and genuine state of Germanic man which has been suppressed by the xtian churches and repressed by Germanic man himself. Through this mindset we will be able to connect with numinous beings and with the Gods themselves.

The Eye of Sauron: Britain Now a Police State


The enslavement of the masses in the United Kingdom reached another decisive stage yesterday when the Investigatory Powers Bill received the Royal Assent and became the Investigatory Powers Act. The United Kingdom is now the most intensively surveilled country in the world-all this from the 'mother of parliaments'!

What this Act does is provide legal legitimacy to mass spying of the citizenry which has already been going on for decades by the government via GCHQ and from assistance provided by American intelligence agencies, most notably at Menwith Hill, near Harrogate in Yorkshire. The lack of coverage by the mainstream media regarding this in the months before it received the Royal Assent demonstrates the amount of collusion that exists between the various organs of the establishment, the media being nothing more than a Public Relations department for the government. We have witnessed how western media to its great shame attempted to demonise the supporters of BREXIT in the months leading up to the referendum and the excessive anti-Trump, pro-Clinton slant of the American media in the months before the American presidential elections.

Ironically RT (Russia Today) has been labelled by western governments and media as little more than a mouthpiece for President Putin and yet what is the BBC if not a state owned and tax levying corporation which for years has consistently plugged the multiracial society and echoed the rhetoric of western hawks regarding Syria? Indeed my readers will be aware of the recent motion passed by the European Parliament which equates so-called anti-EU propaganda supposedly perpetrated by RT and Sputnik with the activities of the Jihadist organisation Islamic State! See https://sputniknews.com/politics/201611231047742985-eu-sputnik-rt-propaganda/
You couldn't make this nonsense up! So now any opposition to the liberal elite in the so-called free world is equated with 'terrorism'! You can express any opinion you like so long as it is the opinion of the ruling elite!

For decades now the United Kingdom has been subject to constant surveillance and from a survey conducted 5 years ago it was calculated that the country has 5.9 million closed circuit TV cameras which equates to 1 per 11 head of the population! See http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/10172298/One-surveillance-camera-for-every-11-people-in-Britain-says-CCTV-survey.html  This technology was predicted by George Orwell in his remarkable book Nineteen Eighty-Four, published in 1949 which I first read in the 1970s. If any of my readers have not yet read this prophetic work of fiction I would urge them to do so as soon as possible. I would not be surprised however if the elite got the idea of CCTV from this work. This was the beginning of the infamous Eye of Sauron which features in Tolkien's Lord of the Rings. Orwell called this proto-CCTV a Telescreen. It should be noted that the Telescreen served as a Television as well as a surveillance device. In 1949 few people owned televisions, radio being the TV of its day so Orwell quickly saw how this medium could be used not only for 'entertainment' and propaganda but also for surveillance purposes. The one thing that Orwell does not appear to have envisaged is the surveillance of the entire population. In his novel only members of the Inner Party (the ruling class) and the Outer Party (Civil Service, Middle Classes etc) were subject to this type of constant surveillance for it is from these two classes the intellectuals usually stem from and it is they who pose a threat to the one party state. By contrast the Proles (Proletariat) are largely left to carry on with their lives and they are provided with sufficient means of entertainment and alcohol to dull their senses and keep them happy as dumb animals (no change there then!).

Today however everybody is subject to surveillance in the United Kingdom and it is done under the pretence of combatting and detecting crime and keeping people 'safe' or so it is alleged! Why therefore they feel the need to have cameras in doctors' surgeries and sports centres is beyond me. The elite however does use entertainment to keep the masses quiet and the everyday lives of the masses are devoted to entertaining themselves and becoming wage slaves in order to fund yet more entertainment! The Romans called this panem et circenses (bread and circuses) and of course certain sports such as football are used as a safety valve to allow men to let off steam in a safe environment without it being directed at the elite which is manipulating them. Also they pay for the privilege of being manipulated! Another aspect of football in particular is the way in which loyalty towards the team one supports is a substitute for tribal, ethnic or racial loyalty. 

Other aspects of Nineteen Eighty-Four are worthy of discussion which I will reserve for a future article. Today I just wanted to bring to people's attention the passing of this iniquitous Act. In theory the Queen could have withheld granting Royal Assent to the Bill but her position as Head of State and the continuing prosperity of her family are clearly of greater importance to her than the well being of the people she has sworn to serve and protect. For this reason alone the Queen should be considered a traitor to the English and British peoples. She is little more than a puppet of the elite who really govern this land, albeit an extremely wealthy one at that. I hope to mention a few more salient points concerning Her Majesty in a future article. 

So now the government requires all Internet Service Providers to log the details of all websites visited and Intelligence agencies, the Police and many other government departments including the DWP, HMRC and the Food Standards Agency and even the NHS can now access your Internet records and emails. Here is the full list of snoopers:



  • Metropolitan Police Service
  • City of London Police
  • Police forces maintained under section 2 of the Police Act 1996
  • Police Service of Scotland
  • Police Service of Northern Ireland
  • British Transport Police
  • Ministry of Defence Police
  • Royal Navy Police
  • Royal Military Police
  • Royal Air Force Police
  • Security Service
  • Secret Intelligence Service
  • GCHQ
  • Ministry of Defence
  • Department of Health
  • Home Office
  • Ministry of Justice
  • National Crime Agency
  • HM Revenue & Customs
  • Department for Transport
  • Department for Work and Pensions
  • NHS trusts and foundation trusts in England that provide ambulance services
  • Common Services Agency for the Scottish Health Service
  • Competition and Markets Authority
  • Criminal Cases Review Commission
  • Department for Communities in Northern Ireland
  • Department for the Economy in Northern Ireland
  • Department of Justice in Northern Ireland
  • Financial Conduct Authority
  • Fire and rescue authorities under the Fire and Rescue Services Act 2004
  • Food Standards Agency
  • Food Standards Scotland
  • Gambling Commission
  • Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority
  • Health and Safety Executive
  • Independent Police Complaints Commissioner
  • Information Commissioner
  • NHS Business Services Authority
  • Northern Ireland Ambulance Service Health and Social Care Trust
  • Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service Board
  • Northern Ireland Health and Social Care Regional Business Services Organisation
  • Office of Communications
  • Office of the Police Ombudsman for Northern Ireland
  • Police Investigations and Review Commissioner
  • Scottish Ambulance Service Board
  • Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commission
  • Serious Fraud Office
  • Welsh Ambulance Services National Health Services Trust


Why the Welsh Ambulance Services and the Gambling Commission should be given powers to spy on its citizens is beyond my understanding. Although this iniquitous legislation has now received Royal Assent by the Royal Puppet legal challenges are being presented against it. However the citizens of this country should ask why their MPs have done nothing to prevent us becoming a Police state. I would encourage all my readers to sign the following petition to put pressure on Parliament to properly debate this issue:

How can we fight back and defend our privacy? Of course there are no shortage of idiots who plug the what have you got to hide? line. Following their logic then why do we have curtains? Why not let the whole world observe everything that we do in what should be the privacy of our own homes! My advice to people is as follows:

. Do not use Smart Phones: they can be used to track your movements. I have a simple pay as you go phone that can do nothing except make and receive calls and text messages.

. Consider purchasing special software such as VPNs (Virtual Private Network) which will or should prevent ISPs from collecting data. In fact there are quite a few reliable free VPNs which offer all the basics such as Cyber Ghost.

. Do not use instant messaging or Skype.

.Do not include any compromising information in email: use them sparingly. The postal system is much more secure although they can spy on your post as well.

.If you own a car do not buy Sat Nav-it stores collectable data about your movements.

. Do not buy a car with a black box or its equivalent. Alternatively have it removed.

, Be aware that Police cars are now fitted with ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition). A skilled driver may have the ability to avoid these.

.Do not use social media. I have no idea why anyone would want to use it but there are many who do and this is one of the main ways that the government-and criminals can obtain information about you.

The White Dragon of Hengist, Descendant of Woden



For those who doubt the validity of the White Dragon as a symbol of the ethnically English folk they would do well to note that the concept of the English White Dragon was revived in the late 20th century: it is not however a 20th century invention. That great poet and author Sir Walter Scott was already aware of the association between the White Dragon and the English when he composed his remarkable poem The Saxon War Song  presumably in the early 19th century. No doubt this was based at least in part on the story of the fighting red and white dragons referred to by  Nennius in his 9th century History of the Brittons and  Geoffrey of Monmouth in his monumental History of the Kings of Britain in the 12th century.

There are of course those who would disparage the work of these early historians and this disparagement is usually based upon nothing more than their own 21st century conceit. It is vital therefore that we make ourselves familiar with these works as they are important for the history of our folk.

I dedicate The Saxon War Song to my ancestor Hengist who was of course a descendant of Woden via Wictgils, Witta and Wecta according to Bede in his An Ecclesiastical History of the English People, completed in about the year 731 CE. So here we have a clear link between the White Dragon and Woden via his great great grandson Hengist.

The poem is also prophetic in nature for it appears to predict the demise of the English nation, a process which started in June 1948 with Windrush under the premiership of the traitor Clement Atlee.

The Saxon War Song
Whet the bright steel,
Sons of the White Dragon!
Kindle the torch,
Daughter of Hengist!
The steel glimmers not for the carving of the banquet,
It is hard, broad and sharp pointed;
The torch goeth not to the bridal chamber,
It steams and glitters blue with sulpher.
Whet the steel, the raven croaks!
Light the torch, Zernebrock is yelling!
Whet the steel, sons of the Dragon!
Kindle the torch, daughter of Hengist!
The black clouds are low over the thane’s castle:
The eagle screams-he rides on their bosom.
Scream not, grey rider of the sable cloud,
Thy banquet is prepared!
The maidens of Valhalla look forth,
The race of Hengist will send them guests.
Shake your black tresses, maidens of Valhalla!
And strike your loud timbrels for joy!
Many a haughty step bends to your halls,
Many a helmed head.
Dark sits the evening upon the thane’s castle,
The black clouds gather round;
Soon shall they be red as the blood of the valiant!
The destroyer of forests shall shake his red crest against them;
He, the bright consumer of palaces,
Broad waves he his blazing banner,
Red, wide, and dusky,
Over the strife of the valiant;
His joy is the clashing swords and broken bucklers;
He loves to lick the hissing blood as it bursts warm from the wound!
All must perish!
The sword cleaveth the helmet;
The strong armour is pierced by the lance:
Fire devoureth the dwelling of princes,
Engines break down the fences of battle.
All must perish!
The race of Hengist is gone-
The name of Horsa is no more!
Shrink not then from your doom, sons of the sword!
Let your blades drink blood like wine;
Feast ye in the banquet of slaughter,
By the light of blazing halls!
Strong be your swords while your blood is warm.
And spare neither for pity nor fear,
For vengeance hath but an hour;
Strong hate itself shall expire!
I also must perish.

Some Thoughts on Creating an Alternative Wodenist England



It is more than clear to me now, especially with the disgraceful and anti-democratic decision of the High Court today, denying the obvious right of the Prime Minister to activate article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty to give notice to leave the bastard European Union, that the indigenous English people have no real democratic 'rights'. Any 'rights' which we appear to have are then side lined by other organs of the establishment in order to preserve the status quo of the iniquitous system that enslaves us. As a side note I wish to point out that this legal challenge to the government has been brought by a secretive group of anonymous donors called People's Challenge. Many of these donors are  former residents of the United Kingdom seeking to meddle in our affairs in order to maintain their comfortable lifestyles abroad in the European Union. Others no doubt are those who cannot stomach this country regaining control of its own borders and laws. The public face of this campaign group is Gina Miller, a wealthy and FOREIGN born  self-promoting 'philanthropist' and wife of a hedge fund manager who seems to think that she knows what is best for the indigenous English people.

These challengers to the decision of the people to leave the bastard European Union will no doubt maintain that they are merely challenging the constitutional process of leaving or to use their euphemistic terminology, 'seeking clarity'. The truth of the matter is that they are attempting to delay and block the whole process for they know that the majority of MPs (who are a law unto themselves) will vote against the government to prevent the country from leaving and thus oppose the clear will of the English people who voted 53.4% against 46.6% to leave.

Leaving the European Union but agreeing to the 'freedom of movement' of people (read unwanted immigrants) is not leaving at all but a subterfuge, designed to hoodwink the gullible electorate into thinking that they have left. Surely what has happened today is confirmation that we are living in an oppressed and occupied land where immigrants appear to have more influence and power than the native English folk. As folkish Wodenists we need to carefully consider organising an alternative society, one in which we will create and enforce our own laws. The germination of this idea occurred to me a few nights ago after watching a documentary on Sharia divorce courts. It would seem that many muslim 'marriages' are in fact not recognised in English law because they were entered into in England and did not have an accompanying civil marriage. Thus the 'wives' who seek a 'divorce' are at the mercy of these councils who tend to be male dominated. They cannot seek redress in English civil courts as there was no legal marriage to begin with. This is an interesting counterweight to civil courts which tend to be anti-male and undermine the constitution of marriage.

As part of the process of setting up our alternative society we must recognise that we acknowledge no recognition of the authority of the anti-English court system or its iniquitous laws. Our loyalty must be towards first of all our native English Gods and secondly to the blood nation of England which is currently represented by the Woden Folk religion. Those of us who have sworn witnessed oaths of loyalty to the Gods, the Folk Warder and the English people will already be familiar with this concept which needs to be strengthened further in all rites of profession and initiation. We must realise that we have not just simply 'joined' a religion or a 'club' but have entered into solemn and abiding oaths which cannot be dissolved and that form the basis of the society which we are creating.

In our pre-christian past our laws were not written down but were oral in nature and were recited by the priests at all gatherings of the Thing. These laws were rooted in our Wodenic religion and were very much a part of true justice, not the dead and iniquitous laws that we are subject to in today's occupied England. I propose that a council of wise gothar be appointed to oversee all matters of dispute within our folk and all marriages must be considered first by the gothar and be consecrated by one of them in the presence of the Gods. This in effect means that we should not enact marriages in Registry Offices as this means we are consenting to the 'approval' of an alien and oppressive government and by doing so we subject ourselves to their laws and thus allow them to interfere in our lives as a consequence. The example of the muslim Sharia court system is one that we can usefully employ but should be moulded according to the beliefs, ideals and thinking of the nation of Woden.

As our Folk Warder has recently pointed out the fines which courts impose upon those defendants who are found guilty go straight to the government and not to the victim who is lucky if they receive any compensation at all. Thus fines are a form of taxation. This was not the case in pre-christian England where any exchange of money or goods was made to the injured party, not to the 'state'. This is a model which we should return to. My proposed system would make lawyers redundant-a welcome innovation! Justice would be both transparent and real as wrongs will be righted. There would also be no need for prisons. Prisons did not exist amongst the pre-christian Germanic peoples but were introduced after the christianisation or the enslavement of our peoples. Indeed israelite mosaic law, not Germanic law is the foundation of this evil system. People who were a danger to our society were cast out of it and made outlaws or were offered up as sacrifices to Woden. Again this is a system that hopefully will one day be reintroduced back into our Germanic lands once our alien occupation has been ended.

A feature of the Germanic justice system was the duel. This gave the wronged party a means of seeking vengeance or satisfaction for wrongs inflicted upon them or their kin. The current legal system does not properly compensate victims and neither does it right wrongs in the way that they should be righted. Legal systems in the occupied 'west' take a dim view of duelling because it realises that it bypasses the alien judeo-christian system which has been inflicted upon us. Duelling survived for quite a long time before the church managed to outlaw it. We need to reflect here that the iniquitous English legal system is based upon ecclesiastical law and precepts and thus is alien to the soul of the Germanic peoples.

When we have achieved the liberation of England and Germania we will have no use for the Houses of Parliament, that famous trough where the pigs gather around. Perhaps the buildings can be converted to living quarters or otherwise be demolished as we will no longer have any need for MPs-yet another welcome innovation!

As our Folk Warder has said, we live in this society but we should not be a part of it. I hope that this short article can be used to trigger a constructive discussion amongst Wodenists on how we can create and develop an alternative England right now in 2016.

Church of England Christianisation of our Heathen Dead

Today I wrote a letter to my local newspaper protesting against the christian reinterment of an obviously heathen Anglo-Saxon skeleton, discovered in Leyburn in North Yorkshire. The remains were dated to 399-544CE, predating the mission of Augustine by 53-198 years! It is incredulous to assume that this man was a christian and yet a Church of England priest presided over the ceremony. This amounts to the christianisation of the heathen dead, an insult to our ancestors who would of course have been followers of the old English Gods, Woden, Thunor and Frigg.

Some cursory research on the Internet revealed this to be more common than I originally suspected. I found this article dating back to 1999 concerning the reinterment of a Bronze Age skeleton by a Church of Wales priest: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/wales/480967.stm

Apparently it is also common for pre-christian remains not to be reinterred but kept on display in museums. So even in death our heathen ancestors are subject to an indignity not suffered by those who were adherents to the christian religion. So even in the 21st century there is still discrimination practised against non-christian remains. See: http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/ancient/archaeology/human_remains_01.shtml


"The excavation of human remains, of whatever date, from their place of burial, is regulated by law and requires a licence from the Home Office. But even after excavation has taken place there is the question of what happens to the remains. The divide is often between Christian and non-Christian, with Christians more likely to be re-buried while prehistoric burials more often than not end up in museum storage."

My readers may remember the furore over the refusal of English Heritage to rebury the remains of a prehistoric child found at Avebury despite opposition by the Council of British Druid Orders: https://historicengland.org.uk/advice/technical-advice/archaeological-science/human-remains-advice/avebury-reburial-results/  I wonder how the perpetrators of this disgusting decision would feel about their own child being kept on display in a museum? What on earth can the public gain from such a display apart from the same morbid curiosity which the masses used to derive from a public lynching? The same thing of course happened to the remains of the Amesbury Archer.

Even when our non-christian ancestors are reburied without a christian liturgy christian clerics still manage to get a showing: http://www.honour.org.uk/reburial-at-highworth/

This general lack of respect demonstrated towards our dead ancestors by subjecting them to christian burial rites or displaying them as objects in a museum is indicative of the Kali Yuga in which we are living today

The Aryan Origins of Genghis Khan

Several years ago whilst reading Savitri Devi's most notable work, The Lightning and the Sun (1958) I came across this passage regarding Genghis Khan:

"Hoelun also told him of his ancestors, the Borjigin, the Blue-eyed heroes, sons of the legendary Blue-Wolf. (page 69) 

"His mother's tales of the half-mythical Borjigin only stimulated in him the natural self-confidence which is the privilege of the strong. He too had blue eyes, like those ancestors who, visualised through Hoelun's poetic speech, appeared as demi-gods. And his thick hair had the colour of fire. He too was a son of the Blue-Wolf. " (page 70) 


It is possible that Savitri obtained this information from the historical records of  the Persian Ab ul Ghasi. The tribe which Genghis belonged to, the Borjigin were known as the Grey-Eyed Men. Grey eyes as well as blue and green are a natural characteristic of the Nordic race. This historical fact should not surprise us as light eyes, fair skin and red hair are still found today in Mongolia. From the Tarim Basin in China we know of the red-haired, tartan wearing mummies who more than likely spoke a form of Tocharian, an extinct Indo-European language. Our ancestors were great explorers and colonists and we must not assume that they were limited to the confines of Eurasia. In addition to having blue eyes and red hair Genghis also was noted for being of tall stature. He was also believed to have worn a protective Swastika ring.

Of course many establishment historians who are by and large indoctrinated with and enslaved by anti-white concepts have over the years scorned this physical description of Genghis Kahn but they have recently been proven wrong by the startling news that the Y haplotype group that Genghis belonged to is not the C, C2 or C3 haplotypes as previously assumed, but R1b, a haplotype which is specifically European and the most common haplotype in central Europe, particularly in the British Isles and the haplotype which I belong to. Historians now consider that R1b, more so than R1a or I is the primary originator or conveyor of Proto-Indo-European. 

Scientists have carried out DNA testing on 5 bodies of the Golden Family discovered in Tavan Tolgoi, Eastern Mongolia. As we are unlikely to ever recover the remains of Genghis himself then this is the closest evidence that we are ever likely to find. See https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27627454


My readers will also be aware of the claims that Tutankhamun belongs to the Atlantic Modal Haplotype, the same one that I and most other western Europeans belong to, R1b1a2. This has been established by the respectable iGENEA testing laboratories in Switzerland so I have no reason to disbelieve their analysis. The truth however had been wilfully suppressed by the Egyptian authorities just as China tried to suppress the truth about the Tarim Mummies. It is not convenient to their interpretations of history. Academics should never fear nor suppress the truth! We have further evidence to substantiate this fact as DNA testing on the remains of Akhnaton (his father) and Amenhotep III (his paternal grandfather) also belong to the same haplotype.

Interestingly the 3 historical figures discussed in The Lightning and the Sun are Genghis Khan, Akhnaton and Adolf Hitler! Savitri was always convinced of the Aryan origins of all 3 leaders and we now know that she was correct. We know that Akhnaton was of Aryan lineage not only on the paternal but on his maternal side as well. His mother Tiy was of Mitanni origin. We know that the Mitanni were either an Aryan people or a people who had an Aryan ruling caste (like the Egyptians) and worshiped Gods that had similar names to the Aryan Vedic ones. We know from Mitanni treaties that they worshiped  Aryan Gods under the names of Varuna, Mitra, Indra, Nasatya-nna and Agnis.

Genetics is proving to be a useful tool in our understanding of history but must be used alongside other scientific disciplines such as Archaeology and History.

Adolf Hitler's Childhood Home to be Demolished

This should not surprise us. If the race traitors who run the German and Austrian governments can desecrate the graves of the dead ( https://www.theguardian.com/world/2012/mar/30/adolf-hitler-parents-grave-tombstone ) then demolishing a perfectly fine house of historical importance is not beyond them. What these spineless cowards and fools do no realise is that what they are driving underground will one day soon erupt like a volcano and engulf them all. You cannot suppress a people for ever: they will and are fighting back.

http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/adolf-hitlers-childhood-home-bulldozed-9064386


Great movements such as National Socialism cannot be destroyed by such petty acts. Not even imprisonment and murder CAN DESTROY AN IDEA!

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.

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.

'Ari-' and 'Teut' and their Relation to Aryan and Teutonic Self-Identity

I have discussed the etymology behind the term 'Aryan' or 'Arya' before on this blog and do not intend to go over exactly the same ground.

According to Professor Jean Haudry the term ari means 'tribe' (see p.59, The Indo-Europeans). Indeed he draws a link between this root word and the name of the pan-Aryan God Aryaman:


"For the Aryans this national community, called ari-'tribe', was symbolized and embodied in an entity called in Vedic Aryaman-('Aryanhood' (Puhvel 1978: 336), cf. Dumezil 1949; 'Aryan name' i.e. 'Aryan people', Haudry 1990c). Aryaman presides over all relations which outsteps the limits of the clan, the host-guest relationship for example, but also marriage and what might be called the general good; he is as well the god of roads. All of this is outside the sphere of the clan but as a whole remains within the tribal (national) framework. It is the king who most has the duty of respecting and embodying the bond symbolized by Aryaman; 'father of the people', he belongs by birth to what has the most right to be called the nucleus of the community." (page 59)

"The ari- (together with its personification, the god Aryaman) denotes also the tribe or the confederation of tribes which make up the 'nation'; but at the same time it denotes the Aryan national community as distinct from the non-Aryans: moreover ari- signifies a person not belonging to the family, the village or the clan." (page 43) 

The Aryan Indian God Aryaman, derived from the PIE *aryo-mn is thus the divine embodiment of the entire Aryan community on a national level, not merely a local one and His cognates may be found in other parts of the Aryan world, such as Iran (airyaman), Gaul (Ariomanus), Ireland (Eremon) and Germany (Irmin):

"Aryan god (*h4eros). A deity in charge of welfare is indicated by a number of lexical correspondences (Skt Aryaman, Av airyaman, Gaul Ariomanus, OIr Eremon,.." (p 433 The Oxford Introduction to Proto-Indo-European and the Proto-Indo-European World, J.P. Mallory and D.Q. Adams) 

Whilst Mallory and Adams insist that "there is no evidence that the speakers of the proto-language referred to themselves explicitly as 'Aryans'." (p 266),  this argument holds no water in my opinion when one considers that both scholars appear to accept that the term 'Arya' is derived from the PIE *h4eros and thus WAS in the lexicon of our Proto-Indo-European ancestors but it is not popular, politically correct or conducive to the furtherance of the careers of 21st century academics to admit this obvious fact.

Mallory and Adams state that *h4eros means 'member of one's own group'. This term is also found not only amongst the Indians and Iranians but also amongst the Hittites-ara-'member of one's own group, peer, friend'. The Anatolian Lycian arus means 'citizens' and the Old Irish aire-'freeman'. Despite the evidence from various Indo-European languages and the belief that "The evidence suggests that the word was, at least initially, one that denoted one who belongs to the community in contrast to an outsider;" (page 266) there is continuing denial by academics that the term was used as a self-descriptor by the Proto-Indo-Europeans. The evidence from Ireland is particularly compelling when one considers that Ireland is the furthest west from India and Iran and thus demonstrates a lexical continuum over thousands of miles. 'Arya', is reflected in 'Ireland', 'Erin', 'Eire' as well as the term 'aire' and the Goddess name 'Eriu'.

The aforementioned two scholars however do not refer to the Germanic link. I don't know if this is due to a lack of knowledge or perhaps a denial of the link but one certainly exists in the name of the Germanic God Irmin. Just as the root word ari- signifies the 'tribe' or 'national community', the term Irmintheod (OS 'mankind') is derived from Irmin.

One scholar however does recognise this Germanic link-Puhvel:

"There is more congruence between *Tiwz and *Wodanaz and the Vedic Mitra-Varuna pair as the benevolent contractual patron coupled with the devious and sinister binder-god. There may even be a Germanic parallel to Mitra: Aryaman (and Nuada: Eremon in chap 10) in the Saxon coexistence of Saxnot and Irmin (a god whose name occurs in Irminsul, the cultic pillar razed by Charlemagne, and in Old Saxon Irmintheod 'mankind', literally 'Irmin's people'; cf. aryaman-in chap. 4)." (Comparative Mythology)

"The king of the Sons of Mil, Eremon, is etymologically the equivalent of the Gaulish Ariomanus, reflecting the same personified *aryomn 'Aryanness' as is seen in the Vedic Aryaman and the Iranian Airyaman. In addition, very specific traits connect Eremon with both of the latter. The dossier of Eremon in the Lebor Gabala involves his role as builder of causeways and royal roads. In the Historia Britonum of Nennius, the Book of Leinster, the Book of Lecan, and some other scources, Eremon arranged a protection against poisoned enemy arrows that consisted of pouring cow's milk into furrows on the battlefield. He also provided wives to his allies and arranged for hereditary succession in favour of the Irish, his own people."
There is thus not only a lexical but a mythological continuum between Ireland in the far west and Iran-India in the farthest east with respect to the root word ari-. Another scholar whose work I follow and admire is Alexander Jacob. He speculates that the Germanic tribal confederation Alemanni may be a corruption of an earlier form of the word Aryamanni (page 162, The Two Grails). This would draw a direct link between the Indo-Iranian terminology and the Germanic.  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 conjecture 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.

If the root word ari- means 'tribe', 'people', 'national community' which I feel that I have demonstrated here that it does then we also have a link in type with the Germano-Celtic term teut which essentially means the same thing and from this we get the word Teuton. The name Teutoburg could be interpreted as the fortress of Teut. Now Teut is cognate with the Old English theod (Proto-Germanic *theudo) and the Irish Tuatha (Proto-Celtic *touta) demonstrating an early Celto-Germanic shared word but it has an even earlier PIE root: *teuta. However Teut was also the eponymous deity of the Teutonic peoples. Teut may  be derived from Tuisco, referred to in Tacitus' Germania, the father of Mannus and the grandfather of the Ingvaeones, Herminones and Istaevones. He is the ancestral God of the Germanic or Teutonic peoples and He is thus honoured in the place name Teutoburg. How fitting that the Teutoburg should be the scene of Germania's triumph and Rome's defeat! From Teut we derive the name by which we call ourselves-Teutons which is cognate with Deutsch. So Deutschland is the land of the Teutons. The Tuatha De Danann, a mysterious and divine Nordic race who according to the Lebor Gabala Errren (The Book of the Taking of Ireland) are the Aesir of Germanic mythology in a different cultural setting and many of the Irish deities have direct counterparts in Germanic mythology.

Tuath in Old Irish likewise means 'people', 'tribe', 'nation'. Some scholars speculate whether the tribe known as the Teutones from where we derive the term Teuton was a Celtic or a Germanic one. Their original homeland was in Jutland in Scandinavia which strengthens the argument that they were Teutonic. However this in itself is not conclusive evidence as the Celts and Teutons did live close to one another and frequently exchanged territory as the result of conquest and/or migration. Gudmund Schuette in Our Forefathers the Gothonic Nations. A Manual of the Ethnography of the Gothic, German, Dutch, Anglo-Saxon, Frisian and Scandinavian Peoples Volume 1 refers to the Teutons as "comrades of the Cimbri", "the Germans" and "the entire body of our forefathers." (page 36). This is generally how they are viewed. He also confirms the link between Teuton and Deutscher:

"Teutons = 'Inhabitants of Thiuth.'
This academic expression used by German, French and English scholars really goes back to the Teutonic companions of the Cimbri who probably came from Denmark. The similarity of the name 'Teuton' to the form 'teutsche', i.e. 'German', is in essence responsible for its general use;" (page 12)   

"Teutons, literally = 'people', later = 'Germans'.
The root = 'people' is the same as in 'Deutsche, Teutsche' and therefore 'Teutons' is often used as a Latinisation of this name. There is, however, no direct historical connexion as the Teutons undoubtedly lived outside of Germany, most probably in the district of Thiuth on Zealand, perhaps also in the Jutland Thiuth, now Ty." (page 29)

He considers Teutsche and Theutonici to be intermediate forms of Teutons. In addition to the link between Teuton and Tuatha there is a further Celtic link via the name of a Gaullish deity, Teutates who usually appears in Classic writings in the company of two other Gods, Taranis, a thunder deity, and Esus.

"Teutates (Toutates, Totates, Tutates) is derived from *tewta 'people' (Old Irish tuath, Oscan touto, Gothic thiuda)...." (Comparative Mythology
Because of the etymology of Teutates it is assumed by scholars that He was a tribal protector God. His cult was popular in both Gaul and Britain and He was considered by the Romans to be the Celtic equivalent of their Mercury. However frequently the Romans prefixed the name of Mars to form the name Mars-Teutates on monument inscriptions. It is speculated by some scholars (e.g. Miranda Green, The Gods of the Celts) that Teutates was a descriptor of a God's function within a particular tribe rather than the personal name of a specific deity.

Why 'Meritocracy' has no Place in the Aryan Caste System



I read recently read some suggestions that the revived Germanic caste system should be based on a meritocracy, something which I cannot agree with and in essence is a contradiction of the concept of caste. Meritocracy is defined according to the Collins Concise English Dictionary as:

"rule by persons chosen for their superior talents or intellect."

In effect this is the system which is used by democracy which the aforesaid dictionary defines as:

"government by the people or their elected representatives." 

It is clear to me that we cannot have both; a caste system and a meritocracy. The caste systems of the Indo-European peoples were no doubt a reflection of the original Aryan caste system, something which I have discussed many times on this blog and on my Celto-Germanic Culture, Myth and History one. I do not intend to repeat the same arguments here. There was originally no mobility between the various castes. Only gradually with the onset of degeneration and intercaste miscegenation did this happen. This eventually caused the breakdown of the caste system and the loss of racial consciousness and blood memory. People were born into the caste which was fitting to their non-corporeal essence. There was generally no desire to be different to the station and caste that one was born into. This is a very modern and western notion and has no place in a traditional Aryan world view. To quote from Julius Evola's Revolt Against the Modern World:

"The castes, more than defining social groups, defined functions and typical ways of being and acting. The correspondence of the fundamental natural possibilities of the single individual to any of these functions determined his or her belonging to the corresponding caste. Thus, in the duties toward one's own caste (each caste was traditionally required to perform specific duties), the individual was able to recognise the normal expectation as well as the development and the chrism of his or her own nature within the overall order imposed 'from above'. This is why the caste system developed and was applied in the traditional world as a natural, agreeable institution based on something that everybody regarded as obvious, rather than on violence, oppression, or on what in modern terms is referred to as 'social injustice'. By acknowledging his own nature, traditional man knew his own place, function, and what would be the correct relationship with both superiors and inferiors;"

Thus in the world view of traditional Aryan man the caste one was born into was viewed as a natural station and obligation and the concept of 'social mobilty' was thus not of any relevance.

"Whatever the original class structure was, it is clear that it limited social mobility. (My note-'social mobility' is a non-traditional western notion) On all sides, in the historical period, a tendency may be observed among the upper classes to refuse intermarriage with the lower classes. As Pearson (1973) has remarked, the tendency towards endogamy, which reaches its maximum in the Indian caste system, has its root in the notion of family charisma (Jamieson 1983) which can be preserved only if people marry inside their class or caste.
"Among the Germanic tribes, for example, the issue of a freedman is fully absorbed into the class of freemen only from his grandson on, and this same principle is found among several other Indo-European peoples, either when passing from the condition of a slave to that of freeman or from the latter to that of the noble: the recently-ennobled, not having at their disposal the support of a powerful family group, are moreover in a position of inferiority. This is, according to Pearson, the proto-historical situation of Indo-European societies.
"Celtic society has three function-classes, as we have seen, but only two birth-classes or castes, since a Druid's son may become a warrior and vice-versa; in this way the caste-border separates the first two function-classes (the elite) from the third, whose position of inferiority is noted by Caesar. (B.G.6.13)  (The Indo-Europeans, Professor Jean Haudry)

This latter point is important as the first two castes-sovereign/priest, warrior/noble are clearly distinct from the third caste which relates to either production or trade (the mercantile or middle classes). The difference is most apparent when we consider the Rigsthula in the Elder/Poetic Edda. The third caste here is that of the Thralls and it is very clear from the description of this caste that they bear no physical (an in my opinion, genetic) resemblance to the Jarl or Karl castes:


"Edda a child brought forth: they with water sprinkled its swarthy skin, and named it Thrael.
"It grew up, and well it throve; of its hands the skin was shrivelled, the knuckles knotty, and the fingers thick; a hideous countenance it had, a curved back, and protruding heels." (Rigsthula 7-8, Thorpe translation)

By comparison the Karl is described as being a 'ruddy redhead' and the Jarl as having 'light' hair. Clearly the higher Germanic castes were of Nordic race whilst the Thrall is by definition a slave and is clearly of inferior physical, mental and spiritual disposition. As I have mentioned before the Thrall has no place in the true Aryan caste system for the Germanic is a degenerated form of the Aryan. If one studies Rigsthula one can see the original Aryan tripartite system: Kon (son of Jarl), Jarl and Karl. Thus the Kon (priestly/royal caste is biologically related to the Jarl (warrior/noble) and rules over the related but not biologically linked Karl caste. The introduction of the Thrall caste only occurred in my opinion when the Germanic peoples encountered, conquered and enslaved alien peoples. One lesson that history teaches us is that imperialism and slavery rebound upon the conquering elite with the pollution and watering down of the Aryan blood. We are seeing this sad state of affairs all around us today. It is of course likely or at least possible that the physical descriptions in Rigsthula are an exaggeration to emphasise the difference between the castes, no doubt to help maintain caste boundaries.

Let us now read what Caesar has to say about this issue:

"In the whole of Gaul two types of men are counted as being of worth and distinction. The ordinary people are considered almost as slaves: they dare do nothing on their own account and are not called to counsels. When the majority are oppressed by debt or heavy tribute, or harmed by powerful men, they swear themselves away into slavery to the aristocracy, who then have the same rights over them as masters do over their slaves. Of the two types of men of distinction, however, the first is made up of the druids, and the other of the knights." (The Gallic War 6:13, Hammond translation) 

Clearly the only castes which mattered among the Gauls were the Druids (priestly) and the Knights (warriors/nobles). Unfortunately he does not give us a physical description of the various castes. The Irish caste system is also worth examining in this context:

"We are again on solid ground with Gallic society, which according to Caesar is divided into druids, knights and commoners, a threefold functional division which is confirmed by that of the earliest Irish society, divided into a class of druids (with several sub-classes), a warrior nobility (flaith) and free peasant called 'cow-herds' (bo aire), like in Iran; in Ireland too a class of artisans (aes dana) was afterwards added.  

Interestingly according to Peter Berresford Ellis, the Chief Magistrate of each tribe was referred to as the Aire Echta. (p.194, The Druids). It is becoming increasingly clear to me that it was the highest castes of Indo-European society that were clearly Nordic in race and descended from the ancient solar Aryan race, semi-divine beings who brought culture and order to a chaotic and primitive world. At this concluding point I would direct my readers to my article http://aryan-myth-and-metahistory.blogspot.co.uk/2014/04/the-nordic-characteristics-of-higher.html which discusses this particular point in more detail. This would help to clarify why the  majority of 'white' people are degenerate, not only physically but mentally and spiritually as well. As Thralls they are acting according to type, according to their blood memory. This is why a meritocracy can have no lasting benefits. As a final point I wish to quote from Julius Evola's Revolt against the Modern World:

"In a society that no longer understands the figure of the ascetic and of the warrior; in which the hands of the latest aristocrats seem better fit to hold tennis rackets or shakers for cocktail mixes than swords or sceptres; (Revolt Against the Modern World)

Knighthoods and peerages are today doled out to political sychophants and wealthy donators to political parties. These modern day 'lords' and 'knights' are fake plastic impostors and undeserving of titles which belonged to those of superior Aryan blood and courageous deeds in warfare. Even those families with ancient titles no longer deserve the station that they hold. How many of these newly knighted parvenus can mount a horse and fight with sword and lance? This is just another example of life in the Kali Yuga.

Atland and the Futhorc





It has only been in recent years that academics and others have begun to accept that the British Isles were once part of what appears to have been a great landmass, bordering on the rest of Europe which one can call Thule, Atlantis or Atland depending upon your perspective. I have discussed this in part on this blog before: http://aryan-myth-and-metahistory.blogspot.co.uk/2013/03/reflections-on-oera-linda-book.html and http://aryan-myth-and-metahistory.blogspot.co.uk/2015/10/the-british-isles-and-atland.html 

Wulf Ingessunu has also explored this subject on his blog in a number of his articles, most notably in http://inglinga.blogspot.co.uk/2015/11/at-al-land-and-hale-bopp-comet.html

What is not generally known is that this argument that we are championing now has been around for a very long time, much longer than I had hitherto realised. It is only in the last few days that I encountered an interesting essay in the original German by Friedrich Bernhard Marby, published in Marby-Runen-Bücherei, reprinted by Bibioteca Esoterica Herrou Aragon, a specialist publisher or reprinter of obscure European esoteric literature including early 20th century German Armanen and Ariosophical works. The essay titled Die heiligen Schrift-Reihen der Menscheit, (The holy Writing Rows of Humanity) originally published in 1932 and first conceived as long ago as 1924 discusses the various Rune rows, both historical and the Armanen. In his essay he makes some remarkable and interesting observations about the 33 Rune Northumbrian (Anglo-Saxon Rune row or Futhorc) which her terms more accurately as Die friesisch-angelsaechsische Runen-Reihe (the Frisian-Anglo-Saxon Rune row).


Marby states:

"The 33 Rune Futhark has been left to us out of an area, that was the motherland of the culture of the entire world, out of the old Atlantis, the central seat of the Teutons of around 12000 years ago. Atlantis is today partly covered by the waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the North Sea, however the area has partly emerged again out of the sea.
"Underwater there lies the part of Atlantis, where the waters roll between Great Britain and North America, underwater lies in the North Sea the area of Doggerbank, now more and more it rises. Holland and Frisia and Lower Saxony, England and Ireland and Denmark have already snatched themselves away from the waters and are again settled by the descendants of the men and women, who once lived on Atlantis and who once in the eternal Spring passed through the lands round about and bore the blood and the God and the wisdom of the Teutons over the earth to distant strands.
"After the great flood the Germanic tribes from the border areas then returned again from the south and southeast, from the north and northeast and settled with the remnants of the Teutons, who had escaped the great flood, the re-emerged areas.
"The Doggerbank was at that time a high holy shrine that remained spared by the floods: Helgoland. Also a land bridge had survived: today's Schleswig-Holstein. Southern Sweden was under water. The countries, that lay there, where now the Baltic Sea is, is with the holy city Vineta until today still submerged. From today's Sweden looms only Uppland with some old seats of the Gods, among other things Upp-Sala and Sigtuna still out of the waters.
"In today's northern Germany lies the land south of the Baltic high ridge under water, so also parts of today's West Prussia and East Prussia, likewise were parts, which today we call Lower Saxony, which were covered by the waters.
"Everywhere however loom the mountains, the mountain ranges and their surrounding areas out of the water. And the land rises continually more (and continues to rise today) out of the waters of the North Sea.
"Then the Teutons moved their peoples back to the homeland, so far now it had arose again. From Finland and Russia, from northern Italy and Spain, from eastern Europe and France a return movement began.
"All of these events played themselves out not however in the course of a few years, but naturally embraced greater periods of time." (My translation)

Marby's account may be based on information contained in the Oera Linda Book which likewise attributes world civilisation to the Germanic peoples, most especially the Frisians.  In its accounts it talks of a great flood which Alewyn J Raubenheimer in his book attributes to a great tsunami which took place in 2193 BCE. (Survivors of the Great Tsunami, 2010). I don't recommend this book to my readers as it is written from a distorted monotheistic viewpoint with frequent references to the xtian bible. A far better but sadly out of print work which discusses the Oera Linda Book is The Other Atlantis by Robert Scrutton, published first in 1977 and again in 1979. This book should be read in conjunction with his very interesting sequel Secrets of Lost Atland, published first in 1978 and again in 1979.

"Unfortunately, the Oera Linda Book does not record what happened in Westland, the old name for Britain, isle of the exiles, when the holocaust that sank Atland struck. If such a cataclysm occurred, Britain's very foundations would have been rent asunder, leaving the dismembered remnants, the Orkneys, Shetlands and the Outer Hebrides. In the west, much land would have been submerged, perhaps forming the present North Channel, making Ireland a separate island. Irish, Celtic and Icelandic legends all tell of this age of fire and flood which ravaged the northern hemisphere, killing all except those who were lucky enough to escape in ships." (The Other Atlantis)

After the deluge which inundated Atland the survivors returned from the lands which they had fled to for safety. Quoting from  the writings of Rev R.W. Morgan he states:

"For a long time after the subsiding of the deluge the Kymri dwelt in the Summer Land, between the sea of Afez and Deffrobani [the peninsula known as the Crimea was once called the Kimria, land of the Kymry]. The land being exposed to sea floods, they resolved, under the guidance of Hu Gadarn, to seek again the White Island of the West, where their father Dwy Van had built the ship of Nevydd Nay Neivion."
I would like to point out that the veracity of Hu Gadarn as a British culture hero is disputed by academics and is generally considered to be a fabrication of the neo-druidic movement in the 19th century. He certainly seems to be of interest to Robert Graves (The White Goddess, 1948, enlarged in 1952). Graves refers to him as "the ancestor of the Cymry" (p. 35). Graves also states that "who according to the Triads led the Cymry from the East" (p. 83).  He also refers to this entity as clearly being a culture hero: " 'Hu the Mighty', who has been identified with the ancient Channel Island god Hou, was the Menes, or Palamedes, of the Cymri and taught them ploughing-'in the region where Constantinople now stands'-music and song (p.84)." Elsewhere Graves states that Hu Gadarn "led the Cymry into Britain from Taprobane (Ceylon)" (p.141). He further states that "The Welsh god Hu Gadarn and the Guernsey god Hou, or Har Hou, are likely to be the same deity: that Hou was an Oak-god is suggested by the same formula having been used in his mediaeval rites as in those of the Basque Oak-god Janicot, who is Janus" (p.328-329). It is tempting to see in the name of Har Hou a parallel with  one of Odin's heiti, Har. Hu Gadarn has been identified by some as another name or identity of the pan-European Horned God Cernunnos which as know is also an aspect of Woden. At this point I would refer my readers to my articles http://aryan-myth-and-metahistory.blogspot.co.uk/2014/08/towards-more-archaic-understanding-of.html and http://celto-germanic.blogspot.co.uk/2009/08/horned-god-archetype.html

Interestingly Anne Ross in her remarkable work Pagan Celtic Britain (1967) draws a link between Cernunnos and the Belgae who were a Germanic or mixed Germano-Celtic tribal confederation who introduced the cult of Woden into Britain from the continent under the name Gwydion:

"...the cult of a horned or antler-bearing deity closely similar to, if not identical with, the Gaulish Cernunnos will be discussed. This god may have been a direct importation from Gaul, for traces of his cult may in Britain are largely confined to areas of Belgic settlement." (p. 179)
"Traces of his cult are found in the British Isles, largely, it is true, from areas of Belgic settlement, but the slight, but interesting traces of such a god-type from North Britain (York, Traprain, Cramond, Meigle), and from Ireland, permit one to speculate whether the Gaulish cult in the south may not have been superimposed upon an already-established and closely similar cult, deriving no doubt ultimately from the same source." (p. 212) 

Indeed as I have demonstrated many times on this and my Celto-Germanic Culture, Myth and History blog, the presence of the Germanic peoples in present day England and other parts of Britain and the British Isles dates back thousands of years further than academics have hitherto accepted. The genetic evidence establishes that there was a constant migration of people from northern Europe to Britain and the English language itself is far more archaic than previously understood and there is an argument for it standing alone as a separate Germanic sub group. The Ancient Presence of the Germanic Peoples in England

".....but starts to look as if it could include some of the period of the Later Neolithic and Bronze Age, when, as we have seen, there do appear to be genetic and cultural influences coming into Eastern England from southern Scandinavia and North-West Europe." (The Origins of the British)
Thus we have a cult of Woden and a Germanic presence and thus a Germanic language already here in England hundreds if not thousands of years prior to the Anglo-Saxon invasion of the mid 5th century CE. It is commonly believed that the Anglo-Saxon, Frisian and Northumbrian Futhorcs developed from the Common Germanic Elder Futhark due to linguistic reasons. I consider that it is time that this theory should be examined again. By the same reasoning it is said that the various Scandinavian variants of the Younger Futhark developed due to linguistic reasons but this does not make an iota of sense. The shortening of the Futhark from 24 to 16 Runes does not facilitate the use of the Runes for purposes of writing; on the contrary it makes it much more difficult as some of these Runes has to accommodate more than one sound:

fe f
ur u/o/v

kaun klg/ng
hagall h
naudh n
iss i/e/j
ar a
sol s
tyr t/d/nd
bjarkan b/p/mb
madhr m
logr l
yr -

It is clear to me that the shortening of the Futhark was purely for magical reasons. Establishment academics will not accept this argument as they are often in denial about the magical application of the Runes despite the physical evidence and the evidence from various Icelandic sagas which demonstrates that this is a lie. Indeed Edred Thorsson has this to say on the matter:

"This system shows the overridingly magical nature of the runes in that, from a purely linguistic standpoint, it made the system more obscure, While the language that the writing system was designed to represent was becoming more complex, the system of characters was simplified. The total of runes was reduced from twenty-four to sixteen characters. Beyond this the signs themselves were simplified. This usually involved the reduction of two-staved runes to a single stave.
"It cannot be overemphasized that this reformation of the runic system really reflects a reformation in the ancient rune-gild order. The system became 'leaner and meaner' in the Viking Age, but it authentically retained the lore and mysteries of the elder futhark in more condensed form." (Northern Magic. Rune Mysteries and Shamanism, 1992, 2015) 

If the Younger Futhark's shortening from 24 to 16 staves may be attributed to a magical reason then is there a case for assuming a similar magico-spiritual basis for the lengthening of the 24 stave Elder Futhark to 33 staves? Indeed is it possible that the 33 Futhorc may in fact be older than the Elder Futhark? Marby was certainly of the opinion that the 33 stave Futhorc is an inheritance of Atlantis, or what we may term Atland and that this continent was the mother of all cultures. Did the 24 stave Futhark develop from the 33 stave Futhorc as the 16 stave Futhark developed from the 24 stave one?
Are the last 4 staves of the Futhorc, what we call Graal or Grail Runes a specific indicator of its Atlantean or Atlandic origins, in the same way that the 4 treasures or Hallows of the Tuatha De Danann have their origin in 4 major cities of the mythical Tir nan 'Og which may be a memory of lost Atland? If so then the antiquity of the Futhorc is far older than conventional academics will give it credit for. It is also interesting that the Oera Linda Book has a distinctive alphabet which closely resembles the Runes and contains 33 characters, no doubt a corruption of the original Futhorc and adapted for writing on parchment or paper.

One interesting work which discusses these issues in part is Tony Steele's The Rites and Rituals of Traditional Witchcraft (2001). 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.

So there certainly appears to be strong genetic, linguistic and runic links between the Frisian and English peoples. The English were clearly an important part of this Fryan Germanic confederation which had its centre and focal point in old Atland. What needs to be explored as a matter of urgency are the lands submerged beneath Doggerbank. Germanic and Celtic folklore is replete with tales of lost and submerged cities around the British Isles and this must have some basis in fact. One example of this is the mythical Hy-Brasil. We know from the Irish mythological writings that the Tuatha De Danann who equate to the Nordic Aesir travelled to Ireland from the 4 cities of Falias, Gorias, Finias and Murias.

"The Elysium of the Celtic gods was to be found on an island far to the west, beyond the setting sun, which was immortalized through many names, although Tir nan'Og or the 'Land of Youth' seems to have been its original name; while Emain Abhlach or the 'Isle of Apples' was another of its appellations, connecting it with Avalon in the Arthurian legends of later centuries. Like the lost continent of Atlantis, it seems to have sunk beneath the ocean,* as it later came to be called Tir fo Thonn, the 'Land Beneath the Waves', and was ruled over by the ancient Celtic sea-god, Manann mac Lir, long after the other gods of the Tuatha De Danann had forsaken it in favour of Ireland. (The Lebor Feasa Runda. A Druidic Grammar of Celtic Lore and Magic, Steven L. Akins, 2008) 

I don't believe that Tir nan' Og was too far west of Ireland as the whole of the British Isles along with southern Scandinavia, northern Germany and Frisia are surviving remnants of lost Atland. It is significant that the megalithic culture is particularly well represented in these areas.

The island of Heligoland (holy land) is especially sacred to the Frisian God Fosite who may or may not be cognate with the Nordic God Forseti; we must be cautious before we make any bold assumptions on this subject:

Wishing to assemble written lawcodes for all his subject peoples, Charlemagne summoned twelve representatives of the Frisian people, the Āsegas ('law-speakers'), and demanded they recite their people's laws. When they could not do so after several days, he let them choose between death, slavery, or being set adrift in a rudderless boat. They chose the last and prayed for help, whereupon a thirteenth man appeared, with a golden axe on his shoulder. He steered the boat to land with the axe, then threw it ashore; a spring appeared where it landed. He taught them laws and then disappeared.The stranger and the spring are identified with Fosite and the sacred spring of Fositesland. (Lex Frisionum)

There is a special holiness attached to the islands and lands of northern Europe which can be sensed by all those of Germanic blood. Indeed this perception is in the blood itself.





*My emphasis.
