Wodenism - A religion recognised by UK Law.

This short post has been done in order to put onto paper the fact that Wodenism has full recognition in UK Law. This came about back in the spring of 2006 with the Royal Mail plc versus Donald Holden case which came before a Manchester Industrial Tribunal (March 9th - 10th 2006). The summing up of the case, where Royal Mail were ordered to pay a substantial compensation to Donald Holden - an Odinist - who was wrongfully sacked from his job of some thirty-three years. This is the text of the summing up -

“The first issue for the Tribunal is whether Odinism satisfies the definition of a religion or belief in regulation 2(1). Mr Davies contends that it does. Mr Peacock [barrister representing the Royal Mail] neither admits nor disputes it.” 

“The Tribunal finds that Odinism is a religion or belief within regulation 2(1). The Tribunal has considered the literature about Odinism in the Bundle of Documents (which appears to be principally a hard copy of material from the website of the Odinist Fellowship) and also the evidence given by Mr Harrison, the Director of the Odinist Fellowship. The Tribunal finds Odinism to be a belief system based on the pre-Christian heathen religion of the British Isles. It is polytheistic and honours the Odinic pantheon of deities with particular regard being paid to the deity of Odin or Woden. It has a concept of the secular and the spiritual worlds and the relationship between them. It has a broad code of ethics based on what are called the Nine Noble Virtues. It has rituals and ceremonies including the Cup of Remembrance, Naming, Pledge of Faith, Wedding and Laying to Rest. It does not have any sacred texts as such but it pays special heed to works known as the Prose Edda and the Poetic Edda which it regards as sources of information about the heathen religion. The Tribunal is not required to make any value judgment or assessment of Odinism as a belief system but to decide whether it satisfies the relatively exiguous definition in regulation 2(1) and the Tribunal is satisfied that it does.” 

The key words here are 'Odin or Woden' which clearly states that both Odinism and Wodenism (and by extension other heathen-pagan religions) is a 'religion or belief' within regulation 2 (1) - i.e. a religion recognised under British Law.
The Woden Folk-Community is made up of individuals and groups working on their own initiative, bound only by the use of certain rituals and ceremonies which are used to further the development of Wodenism -

Wheel of the Year Rites
Child Naming Rite
Seven-Year Initiation Rite
Fourteen-Year Initiation Rite
Profession Rite
Handfasting Rite
Bael Blot

Wodenism also recognises the Nine Noble Virtues as a Code of Ethics; we have expanded this somewhat for our own use. The Prose Edda and the Poetic Edda are important sources of information to us, but there is a growing list of sources that are used to further our Folkish Religion. Although Anglo-Saxon sources are far less than the Scandinavian and Icelandic sources there are many areas of interest that are used by Wodenists.
It is important to make a note of this tribunal ruling since it can be used in various ways to ensure that followers of Wodenism can follow their religious faith without being victimised or stopped from using their religious symbols. This, of course, applies here in the UK since this is UK Law.

Iceni & the Eye of Woden

Both this Wulfinga Blog and the blogs of Wotan's Krieger have posted articles on the presence of Germanic Peoples here in England (and other parts of these islands) long before the accepted view that the Anglo-Saxon invasions were the first Germanic Folk to come here. Wotan's Krieger has also studied the Iceni Tribe and here I am going to add further evidence that this was a Germanic Tribe and not a 'Celtic' Tribe as scholars harp on about endlessly.

An article appeared in the Coins Weekly showing a coin minted by the Iceni Tribe, a coin dated at 50 - 30BCE. The article suggested that this showed 'Odin's Eye'.

The Iceni Coin shows a figure with one eye missing or closed, together with a 'third eye' which is near to the mouth of the figure.

On the other side is a horse, the 'Steed of Woden' which appears together with what seems to be a wheel above it.

Dr Daphne Nash Briggs, author of Coinage in the Celtic World thinks that an 'ancient Germanic ancestry' may have influenced the language, iconography and coin inscription of the Iceni. In simpler terms we may say that the Iceni were a Germanic Tribe.

Next to the Ideni in Eastern England were another 'Celtic' tribe called the Corieltauvi, and this tribe used coinage bearing what has been termed 'Spirit Eyes'.

Even more glaring is the coinage of a tribe called the Suessiones who dwelt in the area now known as France and who are a Belgic Tribe. A coin found and dated around 60 - 30 BCE shows the Eye of Woden on one side and the Fenris Wolf biting off the arm of Tiw (or swallowing Woden) is shown on the other side.

The image on the left shows the Eye of Woden in the mouth of the figure, just as does the Iceni Coin. On the other side is a wolf-figure either swallowing Tiw's hand or swallowing Woden whose 'eyes' are clearly shown. Again, we have the image of a wheel on the coin. Since we also know that the Belgae occupied an area of Southern England, we can now see how the god-figure of Gwydion/Wydion (Woden) came here in very early times. The Cantii who gave their name to Kent were also said to be a Belgic Tribe.

It seems that the Iceni were a Germanic Tribe, and thus Boudicca was a Germanic Heroine Queen and not a 'Celtic' queen as we have been told by historians. Whatever language these people spoke matters little, since as in all times there would have been a Germanic Aristocracy over others, and this is what matters to us here. When the Angles, Saxons, Jutes and Frisians etc. came over they came to a land of scattered tribes who were Romanised and who had started to be infected by the Religion of Evil brought here by the Joten. The new invaders had to take back the land and its people and once again become overlords over a Heathen Folk. The later Vikings did the same when the English succumbed to the Religion of Evil.

There is also a continuum of the Divine Twins as Romulus and Remus, depicted here on an Iceni Coin; the Wuffingas (Wulfingas) continued this and within their own ancestral lineage is the figure of Caesar. This continuum seems to indicate that the Wuffinga Tribe were also here before the Great Invasion.

Here we have a very similar head to that of the Suessiones with a figure with what seems an open mouth on one side and a Solar-Horse on the other side.

The above bears the Fylfot-Swastika.

The Solar-Horse and other solar symbols are found on another Iceni Coin; the horse features strongly on these coins. An aethlinga and his horse are buried at Sutton Hoo which again suggests a continuum of Germanic Culture in the area of East Anglia.

The name Ygg/Igg could well be linked to the 'eye' and thus to the 'Eye of Woden'; it is also possible that an ancient god-name Og known in these islands also relates to Ygg/Igg. Maybe the term 'ogre' relates to this, and we still say 'ogle' when eyeing something. The ancient Vedic God Rudra, who became Shiva in later times, had a by-name Ugr which may be the same as Ygg. We need to recall that the Old English cyning is pronounced something like 'cooning', so 'Ygg' may be 'Oogg'.

There is a direct link between the eye and the mouth, both of which feature in the Iceni Coin 'Odin's Eye' (it is still being mentioned  under this name). The Rune of Woden is the Os-Rune which means 'mouth'; we can now connect the rune to the Eye of Woden too. It is significant that the author of the article on the coin suggested that this is a 'Third Eye' through which Woden looks inwards, obviously suggesting a working knowledge of the god Woden.

The Belgic Coin showing either Woden or Tiw is significant in that it shows an early knowledge of Norse Mythology and Germanic Mythology. There is one thing that suggests this may be Woden rather than Tiw and that is that it is the left arm which is being swallowed - Tiw lost his right arm. There is also the further evidence of the pronounced eyes on the figure, again suggesting Woden rather than Tiw. The wolf stands upon the Wheel of Time.

Once again we have the Solar Horse and the Wheel of Time and a symbol of seven dots beneath the horse.

The symbol of the seven dots is not unlike the symbol of six dots found on the above figure of Odin riding Sleipnir. The discrepancy concerning the number 6 and 7 may be linked to the Pleiades known as the Seven Sisters of which only six stars can be seen plainly.

Further evidence to suggest that Woden was in fact the chief god worshipped in these islands in ancient times is the widespread use of the Gold Torc. Rather than being the symbol of 'The Goddess' as is usually suggested, logic tells us that the Torc is a twisted cord worn around the neck, suggesting that it symbolises the Hangman's Noose of the God of the Hanged - Woden. The Golden Torc (Solar Symbol) worn around the neck of the AEthlinga Caste symbolised that they were fettered to Woden, that they were Initiates of Woden. Evidence can be found on the Sutton Hoo Mask to suggest a connection to Woden through the Wuffingas.

The coincidence or synchronicity involved here is rather strange for just yesterday I outlined the new WF Logo containing the Germanic Ing-Rune as the Eye of Woden. Woden was the Raven-God but he was also the Wolf-God and in this aspect he was known in East Anglia, obviously connected to the Wolf-Twins who were also Horse Twins - Hengest & Horsa, Romulus & Remus etc.

These are images from coins of the Corieltauvi Tribe who occupied Lincolnshire, parts of Yorkshire, Northamptonshire, Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire. They show 'hidden eyes' or 'Spirit Eyes'. The top row, far right shows a strange emphasis upon one eye over the other suggesting maybe a link to the One-Eyed God, Woden. Woden is the god associated with the eye - can all this be a coincidence, or proof that Woden has been worshipped here in these islands into very ancient times?

Styles of dress and fashions such as the wearing of beards or moustaches differ across Europe, and have always differed. The Germanic Tribes on mainland Europe would have differed in their garb and even slightly in language. There is no evidence to suggest that the Welsh language was spoken across what we now call England, Oppenheimer has shown how a Germanic Language was spoken into ancient times.

Angul and Dan were brothers according to Danish Lore, so is it a coincidence that the Danelaw stretched across most of the area occupied by the Angles? It was the Saxon areas of England that remained English under Alfred, from where the lands were united - but under a Christian yoke! A dual faith existed until well into the eleventh century but the English were on a downhill path under an alien yoke long before the coming of the Normans. It was the Judaeo-Christian faith that brought the English to their knees - literally!

'The Wise Ones' & the Founding of the English Nation

According to the Anglo-Saxon Chronicles there was a tribe known as the Gewisse who occupied an area which later became known as 'Wessex', named after the West Saxons. Indeed, what is less well known is that the name 'West Saxons was not used until the reign of Caedwalla (*) when the term 'King of the Saxons' was used rather than the previous 'King of the Gewisse'. Various attempts have been made to make the Gewisse fit a Romano-British form but the obvious still stands out clearly. Now, the Gewisse have been seen as related to another tribe known as the Hwicce.

The Gewisse - the name has been related to the German gewiss meaning 'certain' or 'sure' and their eponymous ancestor (which always tells us something about a tribe) was Giwis. The tribe were obviously a Royal Line of the Saxons, and they occupied an area around Dorchester on the Thames, though no doubt their influence went far further than this area. They captured Searobyrig in 522CE and Beranbyrig in 566CE. The conquests of the House of Gewisse in the seventh and eighth centuries CE led to the establishment of the Kingdom of Wessex, which led eventually to the creation of the English Nation.

The Hwicce - this tribe occupied a tribal kingdom in Anglo-Saxon England, established in 577 with the Battle of Deorham. The kingdom they occupied covered parts of Worcestershire, Gloucestershire, Warwickshire, Herefordshire, Staffordshire and northern Wiltshire. Their first probable kings were Eanhere and Eanfrith.

Right, we have the history of these two tribes or Royal Lines of the Saxons so now we need to discover the secrets hidden within the tribal names and the names of the tribal leaders or founders of the tribes. The German word 'gewiss' is said to mean 'certain' or 'sure'; now Wotan's Krieger is familiar with the German Tongue so he might correct me here if I am wrong. The prefix ge- is used in the Germanic Tongue and as we find in Old English is sometimes dropped leaving just the suffix. Thus Ge-wisse becomes wisse. The obvious stands out here, for the meaning of 'sure' or 'certain' may refer to someone who is 'sure' or 'certain', i.e. a wise man. The meaning of the word Gewisse means 'The Wise Ones'. Their eponymous ancestor Giwis ('Wis') is thus the 'Wise One'.

Now to the Hwicce. Again the name of the tribe seems to allude the historians and scholars, and yet it seems to stare us in the face. 'Hwicce' would seem to be the same as 'Wicce' which is an alternative word meaning 'wise'. Thus the Hwicce are the 'Wise Ones'. The first probable kings are named Eanhere and Eanfrith, names which should straightway link us to the Divine Twins or Founding Twins. We have here, like Hengest and Horsa, Cerdic and Cynric, etc. a set of twin-kings as founders of a particular tribe. In this case - 'The Wise Ones'. The title has also been used of the Visigoths or 'Wise Goths'.

The prefix Ean- also seems to allude scholars since it appears to relate to the Old English eane meaning 'lamb' and eanian meaning 'to give birth' (giving us the modern term 'yean'). These seem to stem from a Proto-Germanic *aunona meaning 'to lamb' or 'to yean'. These meanings have given rise to the word meaning 'fertility' which puts us straight off the mark. What we need to do here is to understand the background to the names, the times when this came about.

Eanhere would mean 'Lamb-Raiders' and Eanfrith would mean 'Lamb-Peace' (**) neither of which make any sense at all. So the names must here be used as metaphors for some hidden truth. These twin-kings had been converted to Christianity, though they do not appear as being converted by Roman Christians. As such the term 'Lamb' would be used for 'Krist' (***). This fits with the meaning of the term, but 'to give birth' brings up the idea of these being Founding Kings.

Putting this together we have two Saxon Royal Lines, the Gewisse and the Hwicce, who are the 'Wise Ones' who pave the way, and indeed are responsible for the eventual founding of the English Nation and the Land of England. We must not forget that it is through the West Saxon Line (and thus the 'Wise Ones') that we get the Legend of Scef-Ing who is the Ancestor of the English Folk. Looked at in this alternative way we can see that the creation of the English Nation unfolded around the Royal Line of the Wise-Ones. The eventual formation was really down to nothing less than the invasion of the Danish Vikings and the Norsemen who were also the 'Friends of Ing' (Ingwaeones). It was the merging of the Viking Raiders and the English Tribes that formed the English Folk-Nation, guided and lead by the 'Wise Ones' who were no doubt Woden Initiates akin to the Armanen of Guido von List. (****)

Another point of interest, and one which seems to confirm what I am saying, is that the Gewisse captured Beranbyrig in 556CE, Beranbyrig being the Old English name for Banbury. I have shown how the word beran (*****) means 'to bear' or 'to give birth' and that it is a word used of the Sacred Centre. Byrig is an alternative to burg or borough. It is at Beranbyrig that the Red and White Dragons fought for supremacy of the Islands of the Mighty, and this is thus the Sacred Centre of these islands. This Sacred Centre is associated with Ingwe and its capture must have been of some importance to the Wise Ones. Of course, the symbol of the West Saxons (and thus the Gewisse) was the Golden Dragon and an early symbol used by the Mercians (Hwicce) was the White Dragon (on a black background).

It would seem that Hengest wielded the Battle-Flame, the Sword of AEtla the Hun, whose Wyrd decreed that he wage a Holy War against the growing power of the 'Religion of Evil' and the Joten who created it. This sword passed to Cynric of the West Saxons who continued the Wyrd through to the eventual creation of the Folk-Nation of the English, guided by the 'Wise Ones' of the Saxon Nation. We should recall, in view of the mention of the Armanen, that the Saxons worshipped a pillar called after their chief god, Irmin or Arman, the god who gave his name to the Irminsul. This is an important point to consider when reading this post.

(*) Caedwalla is a name which means 'Caed'-'foreigner' and thus seen to be of British (Welsh) origins, although this is by no means certain since it could refer to anyone outside that particular tribal group.

(**) 'Frith' here I have translated as 'peace', though the term is a bit more complex than that.

(***) I have used the spelling 'Krist' since there seems no evidence to suggest that these twin-kings were converted by Roman Christians. There did exist a different form of Christianity so I have chosen to use this spelling to make clear the difference.

(****) If we view this as some form of hidden order which von List seems to speak of we may not be too far from the mark. It has been recorded throughout the history of the European Kings that most of them were members of some form of Hidden Order or 'Occult Lodge' (they mean the same). Even today some of the Royal Family here are members of the 'Order of the Garter' or some other 'lodge', though these, of course, are nothing at all like the ancient orders and indeed work through the Counter-Initiation. A more apt example would be Vlad Dracula who was of the 'House of Dracul' - 'House of the Dragon'. These orders were for the aristocracy, though the merchants also had their guilds etc. Even today, in the 'Age of the People' we see the hidden hand of power working through such secret societies as 'Common Purpose', another branch of the Counter-Initiation. We find the concept of 'The Wise Ones' being usurped by the Counter-Initiation through the Illuminati when we analyse the name of its founder - Adam Weisshaupt. The name means 'The First Man of the Wise' or 'The first man of those who know'. Evidence shows clearly that the Counter-Initiation does not create anything, it merely usurps for its own purpose.

(*****) Yet another synchronicity since we have the same meaning 'to give birth' as the meaning of the prefix ean.

In the above photo of a stone placed in the town of Banbury we can see the connection between the area and some sort of Solar-Cult, a clear Solar Symbol being carved upon the stone. This is no doubt connected to some old legend or maybe it is mere 'synchronicity', nevertheless it is obviously connected to the area. Unfortunately the original 'Banbury Cross no longer exists so we do not know what symbolism (if any) it had.

Gift of Ingwe


Ever since seeing this ancient stone which I have called by the name White Stone of Ing the design of the carvings has eluded me, even though I have always seen it as being familiar. The Ing-Rune in its English version can be seen as two Edel-Runes joined as one, which looks very much like an ancient symbol for the Divine Twins - joined at the head. Although the central 'cartouche' is rectangular and not diamond-shaped the 'arms' and 'legs' connecting at the top and bottom do suggest a very similar image.

I can now see some importance in the stone itself, which is a White Stone, since the three major religions of Judaism, Islam and Christianity are all connected to the Black Cube which suggests darkness and matter. Could it be that the White Stone is the counter-religion to the darkness and matter based around the Black Cube or Black Stone? I have shown before how Revelations shows how the finding of a 'White Stone' would lead to a 'new name of God', i.e. the name of the god or archetype who rules the New Age. In this case the god Ing is the name found on the stone. The importance is obviously that of the 'White Stone' which is the colour of purity.

The message 'Gift of Ing' is found on the stone, with this being linked to 'Fire' and to the meanings of the Ken-Rune. The Ken-Rune also represents the Fire-Serpent which is linked to Ingwe and the Rune of Ingwe. Agni of the Vedas is linked to the Aswins who are the Divine Twins; both are associated with friction-fire and the kindling of the Sacred Flame. Here we seem to have a connection between Ingwe and the Divine Twins, if I am right in seeing the twin-Edel-Runes in the symbolism of the stone.

There is of course a very strong connection between the Ing-Rune and the Edel-Rune since the former is the Rune of the Blood and the latter is the Rune of the Homeland. The Ing-Rune, as stated here, is in itself twin Edel-Runes which form the ancient symbol of the Divine Twins joined at the head. The Edel-Rune has the shape given to the Greek god Atlas, the God of the World Pillar. The globe is the world, held up by Atlas. Both runes also contain the message 'Gift of Ing', something which has never been explained. Both the Rune of the Blood and the Rune of the Homeland are connected to Ingwe.

Of course, with such figures as Hengest and Horsa we naturally assume that the Divine Twins are always both male. In the case of Hengest and Horsa, who are the founders of a nation, this is obviously true since they parallel Romulus and Remus and other 'twins'. But there are various different aspects of such figures, and there may be a case here to consider that Ingwe is the male 'twin' but the other figure is perhaps female. In this case we could guess at the sister of Ingwe - Freya. Twins are not necessarily both the same sex. There is also the legend of 'Od' to consider here, for Freya loses her 'Od' and searches to find him again. The name 'Od' forms part of the Od-al Rune.

Mercia Eliade hints that fire is held within the 'Eternal Feminine' where man may seek to find it. It is perhaps significant that the Ken-Rune on the stone is a variant used by the Anglo-Saxons, and not the usual rune-shape which has an upright stave with a downwards or upwards pointing offshoot. In fact the alternative can be seen as an ur-glyphic Ur-Rune with a vertical line above it - fire with smoke going upwards. We know that Freya is also associated with fire since she wears the Brosingamene Necklace, the word 'brosinga' being associated with fire.

The ur-glyphic Ur-Rune thus suggests the Primal Fire and the CGF version of the Ken-Rune is shaped as an Ur-Rune turned sideways. I have shown how the English Ing-Rune can be seen as either an Ur-Fusion or Ken-Fusion which parallels the ideas that I have looked at here. Indeed, the shape of the White Stone of Ing also suggests an inverted Ur-Rune at the top and Ur-Rune at the bottom.

Gyfu is the Rune of Gefion who is the Gift Goddess and an aspect of Freya; we have thus Ingwe and Freya shown within the two runes which make up the phrase 'Gift of Ing'. The 'Fire-Rune' (Ken) is actually linked to the Ing-Rune, suggesting a closer link between these two runes. This may be stretching a point too far but these two make the word 'ken(n)ing'. This is likely a coincidence though we cannot rule out that it is synchronicity.

Ingwe is of course also known as Frey, a title meaning 'lord'; Freya means 'lady' which makes up the pairing. Indeed, this is no doubt where Wicca gets its 'Lord and Lady' from originally. In the law of the Waene (Vanir) sister and brother can also be married through a Sacred Wedding. Both Ingwe and Freya are linked to the planet Venus which is the Morning Star and Evening Star. It is most likely that Freya is the Morning Star and Ingwe the Evening Star, though of course the planet is one and the same. Whatever the case Venus is connected to the concept of resurrection.

If the 'Gift of Ing' is the Primal Fire then Ingwe is clearly associated with the Vedic god Agni. Agni is in fact one of the original 'trinity' of gods prior to the later Brahma-Vishnu-Shiva. I believe that with the name 'Ingwe' we are going way back into very ancient times, maybe even linked to the title 'Igg' given to Woden when he hung upon Iggdrasil. Noting the following we can see a pattern emerging here -

  • Ingwe & Freya
  • The Divine Twins
  • The Rune of the Blood
  • The Rune of the Homeland
  • Ingwe was known in these islands well before the later Germanic invasions or incursions.

The 'Gift of Ing' is the Primal Fire or Creative Fire which provides not only 'Light' but also the heat needed to germinate new life. The White Stone of Ing has obvious connections to the creation of the English Folk-Nation through the idea of 'Blood and Soil'. The connection here between the Divine Twins - Hengest and Horsa - are obvious, for they are the 'Founding Twins'. The White Stone of Ing has obvious connections to the idea of the Resurrection of the English Folk-Nation. It is also connected to the White Dragon of the English. This 'resurrection' is linked directly to the sinking of ancient At-al-land. We know this through the importance of the Hale-Bopp Comet.

"In the end, K is something programmed into the computer code of the universe — a fundamental fore integral to the world, and designed to arise spontaneously, due to the designed nature of it. Once arisen, it guides the evolution of every self sufficient organism’s form and function. K may even be the fundamental force really driving the universe’s organizaiton, if not the underlying purpose of the entire Creation. In its most basic form, K is about the fostering of a specific quality within the Universe’s organization. The quality can be loosely be described as “greatness,” – encompassing such variables as complexity, ability, resiliency, sophistication, creativity, adaptability, etc.

If one examines the world around them, they will quickly come to the realization that, over the long haul, it favors K innately, and that this is likely an engineered design. God does not want to crack the hood on His Creation, only to look out upon a Universe of a worlds that all look like the world in the movie Idiocracy, filled with imbeciles denigrating the lone eloquent smart person. Indeed, were the universe designed to favour R-evolution would never have even made it that far. All God would see in a perpetually R-universe would be ever more rapidly expanding blobs of goo, each unit of goo competing fiercely with the others, to see which can expend less  energy on greatness and complexity, to focus on repoducing more of an ever less-evolved goo."

— The Anonymous Conservative, Chapter Twenty Six — What is K? — , The Evolutionary Psychology Behind Politics

I had just mentioned the word 'synchronicity' when I was beginning to run out of ideas that would complete this post. I had to look up my emails to sort out something for the coming Folk-Moot when I opened an email with a link to a site called 'Elfnationalist' which contained the above quote, and which compared what is termed R-evolution to K-evolution. What struck me so hard was the use of the 'K' which is connects directly to the K-Rune or Ken-Rune, and underlines yet another reason, and perhaps more important reason for the use of the rune on the White Stone. The basic meaning of what is being said is that 'R-evolution' is based upon quantity, equality, and the masses whilst K-evolution is based upon quality, inequality and an aristocratic order.

Again, speaking of 'synchronicity', the article here was about Tolkien's Elves, and the next section of my post was about Ingwe-Frey as 'Lord of the Elves'. The elves are depicted as Nietzsche's Superman or Overman, as the next stage of the evolution of Man. We are thus back to the idea of 'resurrection' and the ideas put forward here. The 'Gift of Ingwe' is thus the gift of Immortality and the creation of the Sun-Man or Sonnenmensch. It is the 'Fire of Re-Creation'.

The Ken-Rune is also the 'Rune of Kingship' and thus directly related to inequality and to the creation of the Divine Order of Caste. Ingwe is in a sense the Sacral King wedded to the land, to 'Sovereignty' (Freya). This is a very important concept since everything centres around Man and the Earth, to the mystical link between Blood and Soil - the Edel. The key to the 'awakening' is The Hooded Man whose rune is the Edel-Rune!

One last comment here. Does not the phrase - '...imbeciles denigrating the lone eloquent smart person...' ring true when we look at every form of attack upon anyone who stands up against this rotten, corrupt, degenerate system? We see this at every turn where anyone with a bit of common sense and intellect is ridiculed by the 'imbeciles' who make up the masses, the 'mob', the 'herd', the 'people' - the representatives of the multi-racial system that brooks no opposition nor criticism to its falling world.

This we must remember - they represent a falling world, a world quickly falling into decay and ruins, a world on the brink of destruction. Their own greed and foolishness will bring about their own destruction. The 'Black Cube' will symbolise their own destruction. The 'White Stone' and the 'White Dragon' symbolises the victory of Light over Darkness! The White Stone of Ing is held within the ancient Isle of Albion - the Isle of the Elves.

The Mask of the Terrible One - Part Two

Adding to the ideas in the earlier post I had the thought that there are eight staves pointing outwards from the centre. These could represent the eight directions of the compass, thus symbolic of throwing out this protective force in all directions. This would be a most powerful means of defence.

We can add to this though, for each stave has three 'cross-staves' which I suggested could be connected to the 24 Runes (8 x 3). But there is yet another possibility, for the Norse used such markings for 'hidden runes' through the numerical value of the runes. Thus, using all of the runic systems, including the Armanen Runes, the three cross-staves would represent the Thorn-Thurs Rune. This rune represents the Hammer of Thunor as a protective symbol; it is symbolic of the destruction of the enemies of Gods and Folk.

The Thurs-Rune is a 'Cursing Rune' and its use is made more powerful through the use of the Thrice-Thurs formula where three Thurs-Runes are used. So the number 3 is here used in a double way to increase the power of the active protection. There are also three prongs to the trident-symbols which are again used in the same numerical way, tripling the effect of this number.

The 'trident' is the Life-Rune known as Eolhx Secg which, according to the Old English Rune Poem, 'grimly wounds' (note the play-on-words here 'grimly'). This at first glance does not seem to fit the idea of 'protection', unless we see this again as active protection. When used in the eight directions as in the Aegishjalmr this would also reinforce the protection to all quarters of the compass.

There is a rather vague reference to the Thurs-Rune 'causing women's sickness'. attributed to the 'Giants'. This is never really explained, but it has to be said that giving birth is not a 'woman's sickness' (as some seem to suggest); the only thing that I can think of is the monthly period which certainly disrupts most women in some way or another. It is just possible that here we have a hidden reference to menstrual blood (the 'Blood of the Moon') used as a powerful magical fluid. In this case the 'Blood of the Moon' would be used in this magical defence through active defence by throwing back the curse or attack.

The Old English Rune Poem sees the rune as symbolic of the thorn which is again a very powerful symbol of protection, a defence against anyone who enters an area protected by a barrier of thorns. It is well known that in ancient times a barrier of hawthorn was built around an area to protect the people inside. The rose was used as symbolic of protection as in the story of Dornrose ('Thorn-Rose') which led to our 'Sleeping Beauty' tale.

Basically the Mask of the Terrible One is the protection of the Hammer of Thunor and the Thorn-Rose, using the Thurs-Rune in its powerful aspect of the 'Cursing-Rune'. It also uses the 24-rune Futhark which again is a powerful force. Since the Eddas tell us that the Runes cannot be used by the Joten, and are the bane of the Joten, then this force can be used effectively against the enemies of Gods and Men. It is also the protection of the Trident of Woden (Rudra-Shiva), which again is a powerful weapon of active protection. This is the most powerful force of Woden-Thunor combined!

The symbol contains the eight-spoked wheel when a circle is drawn around the outside. Here, again, we have the symbol of the whole, of a wholeness and thus the protection of the whole. The wheel also suggests movement and thus action, underlining the idea of active protection. How does one protect oneself when threatened with attack? The most effective means is to make an attack before your opponent can get theirs into play. So the symbol may seem to be 'static' since it is drawn before the threat of attack, but in effect its active power has been set up before an attack can be made.

The AEgishjalmr was used by Fafnir the Dragon before Sigurd slew him and took the Helm of Awe for himself. This suggests that the use by Fafnir was to frighten off intruders, and this was the power used by the Dragon in guarding the Gold-Hoard. Not only did Sigurd slay the Dragon and take the Helm of Awe, but he also drank the Blood of the Dragon and ate the Heart of the Dragon, which suggests that he took into himself the Soul of the Dragon (Heart) and the Spirit of the Dragon (Blood), thus becoming a Dragon-Lord.

In one of our magazines from a few years ago Offa Whitesun suggested that the 'Gold-Hoard' guarded by the Dragon was the 'Ancestral Memory' of the Folk, which had to be carefully guarded lest it be stolen and used against the Folk. If this is right then Sigurd would have slain the Guardian Dragon, taken upon himself the role of the Guardian Dragon, and thus become the most powerful Leader of the Folk in that he himself represented the Soul of the Folk. He was the Folk in its entirety.

This puts another slant on the whole thing, for if the AEgishjalmr was the protective symbol used to protect the Ancestral Memory, then its passing to Sigurd would be a most natural process since he would have need of it in his new role as Guardian of the Folk-Memory ('Blood Memory'). This would explain why he took the symbol and why he ate the heart and drank the blood of the Dragon, that it would make him become the Dragon-Lord whose role was the Guardian of the Blood Memory. It is thus Sigurd the Wolsunga who will awaken the Blood Memory of the Folk. We can guess that this was the reason why Woden spawned the Wolsunga Tribe as the Divine Race of Woden.

One more point I feel needs mentioning. If this is right then the AEgishjalmr is the Protector of the Blood Memory - the Protector of the Ancestral Memory. In this role it is not only a most powerful symbol, but a symbol that we need to adopt in a very effective way in today's world, a world where we stand alone and on the brink of destruction.

The Trident of Woden is also the Thunderbolt of Thunor, the powerful weapon of the Gods against the Joten. This is the weapon of the Lightning-War used as a defence against aggression.

In the above we see Woden wielding the Trident, riding his eight-legged steed Sleipnir. We also see the symbolism repeated on the top of his hat and on the back of his steed. Interestingly, both Woden and the horse are looking backwards which may suggest into the past. This gives further proof that here we see the protection of the Ancestral Memory - the past. The eight legs of the steed are sets of four bound by rings, which could suggest that they move together but in different worlds. Woden, we must not forget, is the Ancestral God. The Sun-Symbol shown on this picture suggests a connection to the 'Gold', since gold has always been symbolic of the Sun. Woden looks back into the 'Gold-Hoard', the Ancestral Memory of the Folk.

One last thought here. In many legends of the Arya the Serpent/Dragon is a very important symbol, usually a symbol of knowledge and wisdom. The Serpent/Dragon was used as a symbol of the High Adepts who brought civilisation to all areas of the world after a Great Flood destroyed it. The Dragon was to be found on the prow and rear of the ships used by the Vikings, usually seen as a symbol of protection again. This would seem to be based once more on active protection since it would appear that the Vikings always removed the symbols when reaching land, most likely in order not to act against the Land-Spirits of the land. This, it seems, was also done by the earlier Anglo-Saxons, and even the later Norman invaders. The Serpent/Dragon was itself used as a protective symbol.

Rudra-Shiva was certainly associated with the Hooded Serpent (Cobra) as this serpent is sacred to Shiva. I have shown how the Hooded Serpent is also linked to Woden, and we also know that the Serpent was sacred to Votan of South America, who was of the Race of Chan - 'Chan' meaning 'serpent'. (We should note that the word 'chan' connects to the Kan-Rune and thus to 'knowledge', 'wisdom' and to 'kingship', as well as to the Serpent/Dragon - the 'Fire-Serpent'.

This, as stated before, is the Mask of Igg the Terrible, the name Igg or Ygg referring to the Aryan God who offered himself up to the self-sacrifice upon the World Tree - Iggdrasil. Thus, when we dissect the word Igg-dra-sil we get the following inner meaning -

Igg - Woden as 'The Terrible One'.

Dra - 'to twist', 'to turn' or 'to coil', suggesting the Coiled Serpent or Dragon.

Sil - 'column' or 'Sun-Column'.

The name suggests 'The Dragon-Column of Igg'.

Wherever we find the 'Gold-Hoard' it is buried within the Earth; this is true of the finds throughout the land. This is also true of Smaug, the dragon who guards the gold of the dwarves in Tolkien's The Hobbit. The dwarves mine the gold from the Earth, and the gold is buried within the Earth, where it is guarded by the Dragon. This suggest something 'within', something hidden deep 'within' the Earth, parallel to that hidden deep within the human make-up, mind, or consciousness. The AEgishjalmr is used by the Guardian Dragon to ward off anyone who seeks to steal the Gold-Hoard (which the Dragon stole in the first place), and Sigurd takes this role from the Dragon, thus perhaps regaining the Ancestral Memory.

It is also significant that as a protective symbol the AEgishjalmr is worn on the forehead, i.e. at the point of the Mind's Eye (Third Eye). This is the point of the awakening into higher consciousness through the arising of the Fire-Serpent (Kundalini). It is also the point on the head, the head being the seat of the mind, and of the memory. This again may point to this being the Guardian of the Ancestral Memory. (In the Three Cauldrons the point of the 'Third Eye' is symbolised by the Ansuz-Rune which is the Rune of the Ancestral Memory.)

When Sigurd the Wolsunga burns his hand on the fire after taking out and cooking the Heart of the Dragon the eating of the Blood of the Dragon (on the heart) allows him to understand the Language of the Birds. This subtle symbolism tells us that in doing so he has regained the ability to communicate with Nature, an ability lost to mankind when we lost the use of the Third Eye. The Third Eye was lost in the Well of Mimir or Well of Memory. In guarding this 'Gold Hoard' or 'Ancestral Memory' the Dragon takes this role into himself, and so the 'Blood of the Dragon' has the ability to regain this Ancestral Memory, and this entails the opening of the Third Eye.

Before we lose track of the very basic meaning of the symbol, the Mask of Igg, we should remember that the mask refers to the change of role of the All-Father who is a shape-shifter who has many guises. This is just one of his many roles, but it is one that is becoming every more important today when our Folk have lost their way and their survival hangs in the balance.

One last and not least important idea that arises when we use the rune-name Thorn, for the Hammer of Thunor is not only a weapon of protection, for it refers to the role of Thunor as the Virile Male Hero-God, God of Fertility whose hammer is used to hallow the Sacred Wedding. Fertility is something that is of extreme importance when we consider that our Folk are not producing offspring for the future, and that the enemies of our Folk know this and realise that this will lead to the extinction of our Race. This Rune of Protection works at many levels and no doubt this has only scratched the surface.

Death and the Afterlife

Materialistic science denies the existence of spiritual realms, believing in the material world around us, the world which the majority of people see and experience. What cannot be seen does not exist - how many times have we heard this statement. There are plenty of things that cannot be seen, such as air, gases, electricity, magnetism etc. but these can be measured by electronic means, so to materialistic scientists they do exist. What about the 'Black Hole'? No-one has ever found a 'Black Hole' for this concept is merely a theory. Scientists can merely measure other factors and surmise that these are caused by a 'Black Hole'.

Quantum science has discovered that matter can pass in and out of the material world, and thus surmise that there must be other worlds. This is one step towards recognising that there are other worlds, and that these are peopled by other types of being. A step in the right direction. It has also been discovered that the universe is linked by threads, very mush like the Web of Wyrd which our ancestors believed in. Rather than a mechanical universe, it is more like a 'giant thought'. Basically, as the ancients knew, everything is linked, and everything has consciousness to some degree.

This is where the Aryan Science differed from today's materialistic science, for ancient science was based firmly on consciousness, states of consciousness, and how to attain higher states of consciousness. In the fabled Golden Age, higher beings would walk the earth of the Ur-Lands of Hyperborea, beings known as the Shining Ones because they were far more spiritual with bodies that were translucent and not dense as ours are today. After the Great Catastrophe the Ur-Lands of Hyperborea were removed into a different dimension; simply put the vibrations of this land were changed from that of the material Earth.

The cause of the Great Catastrophe seems to be the mixing of the Igneous Blood of the Shining Ones with the lower species of mankind upon the Earth. Thus the Shining Ones who mixed their blood with the 'daughters of men' became famous and renowned, but they had lost their true spirituality and their ancient powers would atrophy as the ages rolled by, until today these powers are at their lowest, and there are so few Higher Men here on Earth. Miguel Serrano suggests this was a deliberate plan by the Gods to counter the growing power of the Lord of Darkness - the 'Demiurge' as he puts it.

Those who remained pure would have remained in Hyperborea, but those who were left upon the changed Earth would have lost much of their power, and would thus have needed some form of spiritual training in order to hold on to what powers they had left. As the ages passed this training would have been more and more necessary, and only for the Elite of the Race. Only the higher castes were based upon the Sun-Initiation. The lost Hyperborea is probably the  same as Odainsacre based in Hela's Realm, a pure land of Light and Life where Baldaeg the Sun-God rules. This is the Inner Earth of Miguel Serrano, a world parallel to our Earth.

If we look at the Buddhist texts we find that the concept of the bodhisattva is that of a Higher Spiritual Being who incarnates at will in order to aid mankind at some stage. Whereas the Buddha achieved what is known as nirvana through his spiritual enlightenment, and thus reached a stage where he moved into a higher dimension, the bodhisattva moves to another world but awaits his time to resurrect upon the Earth in order to aid mankind. This concept we can find in our own Valhalla, which I am going to look at here.

Materialistic science insists that consciousness can be found only in the physical body; this seems to have been proven wrong through what are termed 'near death experiences' (NDE's) where the subject is clinically dead and yet later revives having a knowledge of what happened, or having seen things that would seem impossible to see unless consciousness was still present. The idea that consciousness exists only in the physical, and thus dies with the physical body, was totally alien to our ancestors who believed wholeheartedly in life after 'death'. The idea of a 'heaven' came into being at a later time through Judaeo-Christianity, and this had nothing whatever to do with Valhalla but more to do with a means of controlling the people. This concept of 'heaven' distorted the true belief in afterlife that our ancestors held to.

We can surmise that there are different realms of the 'afterlife', each of these being totally different -

Realm of the Gods - This would be where the Higher Spiritual Beings such as 'Buddha' would go to after attaining enlightenment. From this world mankind is still guided by the Shining Ones.

Valhalla - This is where the Fallen Warriors go, those who fought and died in the Eternal Struggle against the Joten. The Saxons and Vikings struggled in their time against the growing power of the Religion of Evil which had begun to dominate Europe at that time. The need for the Heroic Warrior to go to Valhalla, to train with the Gods and then to 'resurrect' again on Earth to continue the same struggle seems obvious. The Gods wage this war at a higher level - the 'War in the Heavens' - but there is obviously a need for the Heroic Warrior on Earth to fight the battle on the material plane. This is why Valhalla is such an important concept to us. This corresponds to the idea of the Bodhisattva or Tulka who incarnates at will in order to return to aid mankind. The Einheriar are the Chosen Warriors of Woden who fight the Everlasting Battle; these are the warriors that either prepare the way for a coming Folk-Fuhrer or an Avatar, or fight beside the Folk-Fuhrer or Avatar.

Ancestral Realm - The Solar Heroes would gain a place in Asgard or Valhalla, but there has to be a realm where those who do not struggle in this battle are reborn or reincarnated into their family or tribe. This seems clear from experiences people have had with being reborn into a family. It is usually said that the grandparent is reborn into the grandchildren, but we have no proof of this idea.

Hela - The 'Evil Dead' - the White Traitors and those who commit the most vile crimes, those who have been 'ground' by the 'Eaters of the Dead' (Eoten), will go to the Dark Hel where they return to the Primal Chaos, return to the source whence they came. This is not the place of 'eternal damnation' which the Christians distorted it into, but a return to the Chaos whence all things arise. We have to remember that Hel is said to be the offspring of Loki the Joten and is both black and white, light and dark, alive and dead. Hela has different realms of the dead.

The key to the idea of immortality is the recreation of the Astral Body or Star Body which has been lost through the mixing of the blood with lower-mankind. According to Miguel Serrano not everyone would have this Astral Body and only through an alchemical transformation can this be re-built. This, he says, is the 'Son of Man'. We can, of course, equate this idea with the runes Mann and Ing but this will not concern us here.

It is clear that the level of consciousness and thus the vibratory level that controls the 'afterlife' experience and entry into the realms of the dead. What we need to remember is that our own tradition shows us the way here, for the term Wyrd means not only 'to become' but also 'worth'. Thus, our lives are in a state of Eternal Becoming, and it is through our deeds that our 'worth' is assessed, and when we lead an honourable life, a life dedicated to the struggle of our Folk and our Gods, we can enter Valhalla and feast with the Gods. There we shall train with the Einheriar for the Everlasting Battle, and be resurrected upon Earth to fight again on this level.

Death is not an end but a new beginning; it seems to be a change in the vibratory level of the individual. There are those who will be devoured by the Primal Chaos - the White Traitors and those who have forsaken their race and their gods. These are not our concern. These we have no time for. It is the remnants of our Folk who are still open to new ideas, who are not self-centred and uncaring as to what happens in the future.

The Triquetra & Triskele

The Triskele is made up of three 'legs' or 'arms'; in the case of the above symbol it has three spirals. The symbol is not limited to Celtic Tradition as some would have it, so I am here going to make some suggestions as to its meaning to the Germanic Folk. A similar symbol is the Horn Triskelion which is made up of three horns. These are the 'Three Cauldrons' featured in another article, those of Bodn, Son, and Odroerir. This symbol may thus be linked to the Three Cauldrons which are Power-Centres or Energy-Centres of the body, connected to the awakening of the Fire-Serpent.

Since there are three spirals we can connect each one to an energy-centre, each centre working as a spiral energy. Each spiral is a coil which may symbolise the Coiled Serpent (Kundalini); since we have a form of three-armed swastika here there is a hint of the movement of energy.

The Triquetra is usually called the 'Celtic Knot' but again this is not restricted to Celtic Tradition and features in Norse and Germanic Tradition. It has been linked to the Valknut, but rather than  three triangles fused together this shape here is made up of three half-circles, which is symbolic of three circles, an alternative to the Valknut. The Horn Triskelion is the same symbol as the above, but made up of three horns. There is a hint that we have here a symbol of Three Worlds which are fused together, and this has the same meaning as the Valknut, which again is fused together as one. This concept is important since the ancient Germanic Folk saw the Nine Worlds as being linked together, and not as separate entities.

In the above we have the figure of Woden holding his spear, Gungnir, presiding over what seems to be a human sacrifice (the man lying over the 'mound'); above him are two birds (ravens?), and a Valknut. In the scene, to the left, is a warrior hanging from a tree by his neck. The whole scene seems to be dedicated to Woden as the Hanged God, God of the Hanged. It seems clear that the Valknut, as the Knot of the Slain, is connected to Woden as God of the Hanged.

I have shown in a previous article how the Three Energy-Centres are used at the point of death in order to gain entry into Valhalla, and thus for the Warrior-Hero to become immortal and live with the Gods.

The term 'Valknut' stems from -

WAL/VAL - to twist, coil, turn, i.e. to spiral, thus linked to 'spirit'.

KNUT - 'knot', 'twisted cord'.

It can also mean -

WALK - to choke, to strangle, i.e. the 'Wolf'.

KNUT - 'knot', 'twisted cord'.

The symbol is here clearly associated with 'strangling', the hangman's noose, and thus the Hanged God, who is Woden the Wolf-God and Raven-God. The idea of 'to coil' and 'spiral' takes us back to the Triskele which is obviously a similar symbol to the Valknut.

The Triskele Symbol can be found at the entrance to New Grange, a large mound associated with the Tuatha de Danaan ('Tribe of Danaan'). Since this barrow seems to be associated with the planet Venus and to the 'Resurrection of the Hero' then the symbol must be associated with this resurrection and to the Entry to Valhalla - the Home of the Immortals. The Tuatha de Danaan were said to have gone underground (into the Inner Earth according to Miguel Serrano) and become the Siddhe ('Shee'). The Siddhe were the 'Immortals' or 'Sages' (Siddhas of Vedic India).

The Triskele can be found as a four-spiral version on a pre-Viking stone at Martebo, Gotland in Sweden. On the same stone seems to be an S-Swastika and a Flower of Life symbol, as well as an eight-armed figure.
