Ƒinding §elf, Ƒinding §eidr

People measure their self-knowledge by what the average person in their social environment knows of himself, but not by the real psychic facts which are for the most part hidden from them. In this respect the psyche behaves like the body, of whose physiological and anatomical structure the average person knows very little too. -Carl…

℞eading ℒist, and Ӎore

Since 1979 I have read my fair-share of books related to Asatru / Heathen studies, both lay and academic. It is often said that one should not dissuade another from reading a book, even if you think it would be ‘wasteful’ or ‘nonsense’. The idea here is that each must grow of their own accord,…

Дoctrine of the §oul

“The principal point of their doctrine is that the soul does not die and that after death it passes from one body into another. The main object of all education is, in their opinion, to imbue their scholars with a firm belief in the indestructibility of the human soul, which, according to their belief, merely…

℞une §tudy ~ Ųrur

#RuneStudy #Urur #Uruz It has recently come to my attention that one of the Wyrdlings on my #WiseHome page does not have a set of runes.  Or at least, some were lost and they felt it was an ‘incomplete’ set. The idea of 24 runes is both arbitrary and modern.  On the over 6,000 Runestones…

Эlder Бones – Ħarvest ₸ide

  September 27, #FifthNight Out-sat last night. Stars shone above through warm air, and the grass beneath me rustled as the arid leaves of the White Oak above me. I sang Gog Galdr, and as They have since I was young, gathered in Their galdr. As I sit here typing these words, I can ‘hear’…

Ħarvest in the ℭity

Harvest living in the city and burbs.  Whats a Heathen or Pagan to do? Yes, its ‘harvest’, signaled by the Autumnal Equinox, and across the internet Pagans and Heathens are “celebrating Harvest”, but what does that mean for those who have never even picked a blackberry from the vine, have trouble keeping a houseplant, and…

₸ripart §oul

  I feel the ‘nine soul’ concept is conflated; possibly due to the current societal ideas (and subsequent understanding / practice) of a/the soul as abased, other worldly, and religious in nature. For example: The Heathen Soul is never withheld, nor would it consider quivering in fear of a smiteful god. Alles geben die Götter,…

Ӎahavakyas

In that Jim Carrey is currently in the news for comments deemed “crazy”, “unhinged”, “suicidal”, “bizarre”, and other adjectives, I would be remiss as a practitioner of #RealYoga if I did not take notice, and/or attempt to explain what he *may* be saying. Certainly, no one Mr. Carrey can explain his words, and personally, I…

August 6th was the first day of Bron Trogain, the Tide of Lineage.  I wept as I drowned the Lady Poppet, and rejoiced as my hands gathered Her remains to be reincorporated into the Lord’s Poppet. Blood . Bodily Fluids The Ladle that Stirs . the Psoas that fetter the Upper to thel Lower Completed,…

VVeaving VVeal

On a seidr/magic facebook page I am on, someone asked: “Anyone ever heal their self, like really heal something like cancer? Ever wish you could selectively disable parts of your body to work differently? If so, what would be different? Have you? If so, how and with what results?” I replied, “Seidfolk should know how…

The Lady is dead. I drowned Her with my own hands .. The same hands I use to heal, and pull runes from the Well. I held Her down. She did not struggle. As I watched the air escape Her body, her limbs go limp, The Lord watched over and about me .. Swirling as…

“Being mind-sick and anxious, self-counseled thrall, Völva’s good words, slain newly fallen, their brother’s killer – although met upon the road, a house half-burnt, a horse too swift – that stallion un-usable if one foot broken. Watchful men are safe, before believing in all these. -Havamal 87, Wright translation völu vilmæli / Volva, and, kind…
