The Secret of Halloween

Halloween (31st October) is supposed to be a 'Celtic' festival but has an Old English name - it is a corruption of All Hallows Eve. This has become more popular over the past few years here in England, mainly because it has become yet another time of the year to sell to the consumer-masses. Nevertheless, it is an ancient festival and we are going to look into its roots - in  Germania.

There are certain articles associated with Halloween and these, when analysed, point to an ancient Ancestral Festival of the Dead Heroes. We shall look at these now -

  • The masks - these are a dim remembrance of the Cultic Masks used in Germanic Ritual by the ancient Mannerbunde or Cultic-Warrior Bands. Originally these would be of totem animals such as the Wolf, Bear and the Boar. 
  • The skeletal garb and the skeletal masks, which again were part of the war-band or Heri as told by Tacitus when he referred to a Germanic war-band known as the Harii who were dressed like skeletons and whose appearance was supposed to frighten their enemies. In reality their masks and war-paint would probably have signified that they were invoking their Ancestral Spirits into themselves
  • The weapons such as the Axe (Thunor-Forseti), the Trident (Woden) and the Sword (Tiw) which are still part of the regalia used by children for Halloween.
  • The Pumpkin, which is a rather more modern edition, but the symbolism is that of Light and Order - the role of the young AEthlingas. The hollowed out pumpkin may also be seen as a skull, with associations to the dead.
  • The Xtians have distorted this into a kind of 'devil worship' and the Trident helps this lie on somewhat, being the weapon of the 'Devil'. But the essence of an ancient Festival of the Dead remains hidden in the background. Woden (as the Horned One) was transformed into the 'Devil' and he is the Ancestral God. 
  • 'Trick or Treat' may not be a new thing imported from the USA because it could be a dim recollection of the Sacred Stealright where the youthful warriors were either given something for their role as protectors of the tribe or they would cause a nuisance of themselves in some way or another.
In Odinism, Wotanism and Wodenism we celebrate a festival called The Einheriar or in  WF we also call it the Ancestral Rite. This coincides with the 'Armistice Day' on November 11th, which is a modern corruption set on this day by the Dark Forces. Due to the calender changes by the Xtian Church 11 days , which suggests that this change made the festival of November 11th move 11 days back to October 31st. These are thus one and the same festival. 

We have also the date between these - November 5th - which is obviously some form of ancient Fire-Festival remembered and latched on to 'Guy Fawkes' at some time so as to keep it going. We have thus an 11-day festival with the dates 31st October, 5th November and 11th November as being the key points. 

We have the following ideas from this -

  • This is an Ancestral Rite based upon the Germanic concept of the Ahnenkult (Ancestral Cult) and the Totenkult (Death Cult). This is symbolised by the Deaths Head symbol or Skull & Crossbones. 
  • This is a Fire-Cult which held Fire-Rites remembered in the 'Guy Fawkes Night' festivals. 
  • The rites were held in the autumn period which was known as the Way of the Ancestors. This time of year was when the veil between the Nine Worlds grew thin and the Ancestral Spirits could one again join with the living. 
  • The regalia - masks, weapons, skeletal make-up etc. - were a dim remembrance of the Cultic Warrior Rites based around Ancestral Worship and the Rites of Woden (as the Ancestral God).

The Death's Head derives from the Skull & Crossbones which is clearly associated with the god Woden - the One-Eyed Hunter-God. We have here confirmation that the Ancestral Cults were part of the Woden-Cult

The Evil Brood

Baphomet - The Symbol of Evil

This is a picture of the figure usually called Baphomet which was supposed to be a  symbol of worship used by the Knights Templar. There is some doubt in this as their symbol was said to be a severed head, representing John the Baptist. Whatever the case the above figure would be seen by Christians as 'The Devil'. What should interest us here is the symbolism shown in the figure, which I am going to try to analyse -

The Horned Goat - this stems from the Egyptian 'Goat of Menses' and is a typical symbol of the 'Devil' of the Christians. 

Between the horns of the goat is the Flame of the Illuminati, a symbol that seems to refer to the 'Enlightened Ones' - a title usurped by the Dark Forces.A symbolism similar to this was used on a logo for 'VE Day' but it is doubtful whether many actually noticed who was promoting this - the forces of the Occult. 

Between the eye-brows at the Third Eye is the pentagram or five-pointed star which is an occult symbol.

The figure is androgyne which suggests the fusion of male-female, part of the plan being brought into being in our times. We are seeing the breakdown of the sexes in our era and this was planned long ago - it would seem.

The figure sits on the globe of the world, suggesting world domination. The root of this concept stems from the book of Genesis in the Old Testament. 

The Caduceus symbol suggests the use (or rather abuse) of the Kundalini Force; at the same time it is a male phallic symbol.

To the top left is a White Moon which I am going to suggest is symbolic of the White Man (the roots are the same), and to the bottom left is a Black Moon which suggests the Black Man. On the right arm (pointing upwards at the White Moon) is the term solve and on the left arm (pointing downwards towards the Black Moon) is the term Coagula. We are thus left with a sinister formula -

Solve (break down) the White Man and Coagula (run together) with the Black Man. This is a distorted alchemical formula for the destruction of both races. We can see now why there has been a mass flood of outlanders into the lands of Europe. This is a deliberate attempt to destroy our Folk. And here we have the occult formula given down to us from earlier times, before any of this plan was put into practice.

The figure is winged which would suggest these Dark Forces are trying to work at a spiritual level as well as the material level - though this cannot really work for them since they are the forces of Darkness and Matter. 

As I have stated these are alchemical symbols that have been usurped and then distorted for use by an alien force that seeks our destruction. I think this symbol was first used by Eliphas Levi (Louis Alphonse Constant) who was a French Occultist. Baphomet was supposed to be the symbol worshipped by the Knights Templar, but since this was said to be a severed head this may well not derive from the same thing. Whatever the case this seems to be an age-old plan for the destruction of our Race.

The Guardian-Goddess of England


The Guardian-Goddess of England


The above drawing shows the figure of 'Britannia', who is depicted as holding a Trident, a Shield (bearing the Union Flag) and with a war-helmet. She is usually shown on the waves of the sea which suggests the idea of 'Britannia Rules the Waves' - clearly this image being adopted as that of the British Empire. Clearly not an English symbol - or is it?
In 1066 a Norwegian army set out to invade England under their King, Harold Hardrada, and one of his warriors, just before he departed for England, had a very strange dream. He dreamt of a great witch-wife standing on the Island of England, with a fork in one hand and a trough in the other. He interpreted this as a sign that the Norwegian army would be defeated (which it was, at Stamford Bridge, by King Harold) as the witch-wife would use the fork to rake up the dead bodies and fill the trough with blood. 
Another Norwegian Warrior had a dream of a huge witch-wife riding on a wolf in front of the English army. The wolf carried the body of a man in its mouth from which blood was dripping. As the wolf ate one body, the witch-wife threw it another to eat.
Now, let us look carefully at the first image which has the following symbolism -
1. A witch-wife which is a Christian interpretation.
2. She stands upon the Island of England.
3. She holds a fork.
4. She also holds a trough which collects the blood in battle.
This image is that of the Guardian Goddess of England who is shown holding a 'fork' (trident) and a 'shield' (trough) and - as the Protector of England - she stands over the land. This is none other than 'Britannia' in a much earlier guise; the original shield may well have shown the English Cross.

In the above we see 'St. Cuthman' (Sceaf-Ing) pushing his 'mother' in a wagon; she is seen holding a forked stick like a 'pitchfork'. This scene shows Ing following his 'waen' (Great Bear), driving his 'mother'.
Now we must move to the dream of the other Norwegian Warrior, where we find the following symbolism which we need to analyse -
1. Another witch-wife is seen, this time riding a wolf in front of the English army.
2. She devours the dead of the enemy.
This symbolism is totally different, especially in one very important way, for this witch-wife does not stand upon the land, but leads the English army. This figure is that of the Guardian-Goddess of the English - not the land of England as Britannia is. She is a Wolf-Goddess and a battle-goddess, and is clearly the goddess Freya or Idunn but in her darker aspect. Many years ago, whilst sleeping in a caravan on the Sussex Coast, I had a vivid dream of a goddess-figure who was associated with the Cat - which is well documented as the goddess Freya. This dream happened on the Summer Sunstead, which is the turn of the year from the Light-to-Darkness. It is thus very significant that this Cat-Goddess (seen as a huge figure in the skies) turned into a Wolf-Goddess who was more blood-thirsty and a darker type of figure. This fits entirely with the dream of the second warrior.
So here we have the figure of the Guardian-Goddess of England seen as a warrior-goddess bearing a trident and a shield - the Protector of the Land of Ing. We also have the figure of the Guardian-Goddess of the English who appears here as the Wolf-Goddess who protects the warriors in battle and indeed, leads the English Warriors into battle. Idunn is associated with the Wolf since she sleeps under a White Wolf Skin ('Odin's Raven Galdor'). In the Norse Myth called 'Odin's raven Galdor' both Idunn and Nanna are the same figures.
Freya is the battle-goddess who has first choice of the warriors fallen in battle, taking them to Folkvang; she is also the same goddess as Frigg, and thus the wife/mistress of Woden (Od). Woden is the Wolf-God and she is the Wolf-Goddess in her darker aspect. She is Idunn who guards the Golden Apples of Immortality and is thus associated with rebirth and regeneration.
Here we have two of the most important images useful in our struggle for English Freedom, for these archetypes need to be awoken once more to protect the Land of England and the English Folk. The White Dragon is not just a flag, nor just a banner, nor even just a symbol of the English - it is a symbol of England, the land, and its Folk. Awaken the image of the White Dragon and the Land of Ing will awake - awaken the White Dragon and the English Folk will awake! This is the true importance of the symbol of the White Dragon, and here we have two more important archetypal symbols to awake!

The Winged Coiled Serpent of Germania!




The Winged Coiled Serpent as the Fire-Serpent

Woden's Folk uses the White Winged Coiled Serpent for the White Dragon, but this is done at an esoteric level, with the use of the normal White Dragon (which the original WDK revived back in the 1980s) at an exoteric level. Variants, as I have stated before, are other versions of the dragon and the wyvern which are sometimes used. The use of the White Winged Coiled Serpent will be explained now.
In Aryan India, through the later Hindus, the methods used in Yoga and Tantric Yoga were designed to awaken what is termed the Kundalini which is symbolised by a Coiled Serpent lying dormant at the base of the spine. This fits exactly with the Norse symbol of Yggdrasil where the dragon Nidhogg lies coiled at the base of the World Tree, with the Eagle at the top of the tree. This symbolism is an alternative to the Winged Coiled Serpent since the Serpent (wingless thus 'earthly') transforms into the Eagle (heavenly - divine - moving towards the gods), whilst the Winged Coiled Serpent also shows the transformation from earthly (i.e. material) into the spiritual realms (heaven). It is the role of Kundalini that we need to look at here.
As stated earlier, this Serpent-Force lies dormant at the Base Chakra ('Wheel') in most people, and the aim of Yoga and Tantra was to awaken this force and thus gain great power from it - the power to evolve. This Coiled Serpent was associated with the goddess Shakti, whose name means 'power'. Once awakened the Fire-Serpent rises and unites with the Crown Shakra where Shiva resides, but this uniting is not the ultimate goal. The ultimate goal is to go beyond this to the Black Sun and the Green Ray (Miguel Serrano).
There seem to be hints that this Serpent-Fire may be symbolised in both Norse Lore and Saxon Lore by the Brisingamen Necklace or Brosingamen Necklace. The names Brising/Brosing are usually said to mean 'Fiery', and the necklace has often been seen as symbolic of the female genitalia  (inverted triangle) - thus symbolic of the Root Chakra or Muladhara. This is also associated with the Hvareno or 'Glory of Light' which comes into the Zoroastrian Tradition and is the Light Power that belongs to 'the Aryan Nations, past and present, and to the Holy Zarathustra...' The awakening of the Serpent-Force would result in the 'halo' associated with the 'saints' - the Circle of Light around the head.
The key to the awakening of the Serpent-Force has to be linked to the 33 runes, since there are 33 'segments' in the spinal column, which itself is linked to both Mount Meru and to Yggdrasil-Irminsul. The symbol of the Irminsul shows clearly the 'wings' of some kind of bird, often like that of the Swan, but which can just as well be the wings of the Dragon. This also applies to the symbolism on the Sutton Hoo Mask. The spinal column is not straight, as usually imagined, but is an S-curve which is symbolic of the Serpent. At the very base is the 'tail' of the Serpent - the coccyx.

When the Kundalini is awakened it is said to open the Third Eye which is the 'Psychic Eye' or true 'Seeing Eye'.
If we study the above diagrams carefully we can see how the Third Eye is associated with the physical centre called the Pituitary Gland above which is the Hypothalamus (right diagram). The left-hand diagram is of the proposed Order Castle at the Wewelsburg Castle which shows the Spear entering the Gral, the point of the Spear actually being at the point of the Third Eye. This shows how advanced these people were in esoteric work, and that the object of the Order Castle was to awaken the Third Eye in the Initiates.
In this drawing, taken from David Icke, the hypothalamus area is shown as being the same as the Eye of Horus of Egyptian Mythology. The suggestion is that the Eye of Horus symbolises the Third Eye. In one sense we can see the loss of one of Woden's Eyes as being that of the atrophied Third Eye since this we know happened some time in the distant past. The aim of the evolution of our race would be to awaken the Serpent Fire and thus awaken the Third Eye once more, thus giving our Folk psychic powers beyond modern comprehension.
Contrary to this evolutionary process the Sons of Darkness seek to lock mankind into the material world, breaking us from the spiritual realms of Light. This process is going on from our birth to our grave, since all forms of 'education' are aimed at the use of the left-brain or 'rational brain' rather than a healthy balance of the right & left sides of the brain, with the use of the atrophied Serpent Brain and the balance held in the Corpus Callosum which acts as the communication between the two sides of the brain. The left-brain deals with logic, numbers as units, analysing, etc. whilst the right-brain deals with recognition, understanding of space, shapes, form, poetry, rhythm, music etc. and is the creative side of the brain.
The use of mathematics with numbers as 'units' and the use of language as 'letters' is done in nearly all forms of education today. Everything is geared to left-brain activity and the creative side of the brain is mainly pushed aside, apart from those who are good at artwork, poetry or certain form of drama that are akin to ritual. One of the main things that is ignored is the imagination which is being stifled now in children, since many of the old 'children's tales' and 'fairy tales' are no longer being read to children. If we study these there are so many that have no logical meaning whatever but have a deeper meaning that can only be 'felt' by the other side of the brain. This is much like the Zen Koans which are somewhat like riddles, a typical method used in Anglo-Saxon times to stimulate the brain.
The key to the awakening of the Fire-Serpent would seem to be the Vital Breath as we can see from the Sutton Hoo Mask where the nose-piece is the ondweg or 'Way of the Vital Breath'. Here the Serpent that is seen to come from the base of the neck (Serpent-Brain?) across the top of the skull, ending at the Third Eye where it contacts the Eagle-Dragon-Swan whose wings are the 'eyebrows'.
The Saxon Irminsul is an 'arrow' pointing upwards with the tip between the two 'wings', and which is something very similar to the symbolism of the Dancing Warriors -
1. Both symbols have the Solar Horns - upward-pointing 'horns' or 'wings'.
2. Both symbols have the Lunar Horns - downward-pointing 'horns' or 'volutes'.
On the Sutton Hoo Mask the ends of the 'wings' (eyebrows) end in Boar's Heads whereas the ends of the Dancing Warrior's Solar Horns end in bird's heads. The symbolism has to be of importance, as does the 'heel' emphasised in some of the 'dancing' figures. I have shown in a previous article how some figures are totally naked apart from a belt and buckle, which must emphasise the buckle as symbolic of the hara or Tan Dien which is around 2 fingers below the navel. This point is one of the Power-Centres of the human body and the seat of Odroerir - the Wod-Roarer.
Another part of the use of the Vital Breath is that of visualisation which is the important part of any magical operation or ritual, since it gives intent and purpose to what would otherwise be like an empty shell. I have on numerous occasions emphasised that runic gealdor is of no use without -
1. Visualisation.
2. One-pointed concentration.
3. Intent/purpose.
4. Will.
Gealdor and sound are also part of the process of awakening the Kundalini - called 'Mantra' in Yoga and Tantra. The actual movement of the Fire-Serpent could be likened to the S-movement of the serpent, moving around and activating the Chakras (Wheels). If this is so then each chakra would move in the opposite direction to that before and after. If we project the 33-runes onto the Spinal Column (Mount Meru-Yggdrasil) and start at the base with Feoh, then the Gar-Rune would represent the top of the Spinal Column as the 33rd sector from the base. Since the Fire-Serpent is said to reach the Third Eye, and we see this on the Sutton Hoo Mask, then this point (as seen on the proposed form of the Wewelsburg Order Castle) is the tip of the Spear of Woden, the Gar-Rune actually being the Spear of Woden.
The Spear of Woden is the 'Gift of Ing' which is a symbolism found in the Edel-Rune and on the White Stone of Ing. In all of these there is a link with the DNA and the Genetic Code, as well as the Blood Memory (Ing-Rune). There are clear links between the Ing-Rune (22), the Edel-Rune (24) and the Gar-Rune (33). Since the last four runes are seen (in our system) as the Gral Runes we can link these to the idea of the opening of the Third Eye.
We have earlier mentioned that today's world emphasises the left-brain function of rationality, whereas the ideal is the balance of the two sides of the brain. In order to understand where we are going wrong we need to look at something that is today either forgotten, ignored, or even suppressed - the function of the Heart Centre. Science has discovered that the heart has a consciousness of its own, set apart from the brain. This would seem rather strange but for the fact that we already have a number of sayings that suggest that the heart does have its own consciousness -
Take it to heart...
Learn by heart...
Has'nt the heart...
Heart and Soul - thus linking the heart with the soul.
Hale and Hearty - suggesting a harmonious working linked to the heart-centre.
He gave all his heart...
Heartfelt greetings...
She was heartbroken...
He broke her heart...
All of these (and more) suggest there is something special about the human heart and/or the Heart Centre. In The Final Battalion (55 Club - from there is a very interesting piece about the First and the Last or the Beginning and the End where the author gives the following key to this -
H-eart (the 'H' is here the first)
Eart-H (the 'H' is here the last, making the word Earth)
We have here a clear link between the Heart-Centre and the Earth, suggesting that the opening of the Heart Centre is the key to the awakening of the Earth - i.e. the Sleeping Goddess whom we can see as the 'Sleeping Beauty' or Idunn under the White Wolf-Skin, and even link this to the Sleeping-Goddess Kundalini. It is interesting to note that in Odin's Raven Song the gods try to awaken Idunn, unsuccessfully, until it is suggested that they 'sleep' on it and await the New dawn - i.e. await the correct time of the Cosmic Cycle. Miguel Serrano suggests that the Feathered Serpent (Kundalini) arose as far as the Heart-Centre until halted by the Great Flood, at which time it lost it's 'wings' and was thus transformed into the earth-bound 'serpent'. The aim of human evolution is to arouse the serpent once more which must regain it's 'wings' and fly upwards towards the Morning Star. From our own Folk-Tales and Germanic Mythology it is clear that it is the Divine Hero who awakens the Sleeping Goddess.
The Sanskrit kund means 'to burn' and kunda means 'to coil'/'spiral', hence the term Kundalini - 'Fire Serpent'. The roots of this word links to our term candle and also to the Ken-Rune or Kan-Rune - this is the Kandil-Force in Wodenic Lore. The Mayan Hurakan (from which we get 'hurricane') has been said to represent Kundalini. We have mentioned the Ken-Rune as linked to the Fire-Serpent and there is also a link with the Sigel-Rune too, which is a glyph of the Serpent as well as the Lightning-Bolt.
The above White Dragon has three and a half coils, as does the Fire-serpent, and is the one used by the Inner Order of Woden's Folk. This is a Winged Coiled Serpent which is the Ur-Form of the Dragon. One of the earliest mentions of the dragon as a Germanic Symbol is in the Welsh Mabinogian where mention is made of a Golden Winged Coiled Serpent from Germany. We need to understand the nature of the colour-symbolism -
Golden Dragon - Golden Sun - The Dawn.
White Dragon - White Sun - The Day.
Red Dragon - Red Sun - The Dusk.
It may be for this reason that the name Whitsuntide was used for the time around the end of May, this meaning White Sun Tide. It could also be why the name has been dropped and replaced by the meaningless term 'Spring Bank Holiday'. It should be noted how our 'Holy Days' have been deemed to be linked to the 'banks' and to money and materialism.

The White Dragon has the same symbolism since this has the body of a Serpent with wings and a tail; but this version is not coiled as the esoteric version.

This version is the two-legged Wyvern version which has exactly the same symbolism but has two legs rather than four.
This is the White Wyvern symbolism on a red shield which has been in use for some years by Woden's Folk. I have mentioned that the term wyvern could be a play-on-words for wif-earn meaning 'Eagle-Woman' or 'Eagle-Wife', this being associated with Wyrd and the Norns. This is further hinted at by the use of two legs, since the Eagle has two clawed feet.
I have mentioned the link between Kundalini and the Sig-Rune, so it is just a step further to note that when this force is awakened it is said to give a kind of 'electric' feeling up and down the spine, and the feeling of 'fire' (warmth) - which is something that occurs with deep, relaxed meditation. The Sig-Rune also represents 'electricity' because of its symbolism of the Lightning-Bolt. Kundalini has been said to reside in the triangular-shaped sacrum in three and a half coils - maybe this is why 'sacrum' means 'sacred'. Others say it resides in the coccyx, but the thing we need to understand is that the important thing is not the physical location - which is only a marker - because this is in what has sometimes been called the 'subtle body'.
The Serpent represents the 'earthly' aspect since it glides along the ground   and is 'earth-bound'. The Winged Serpent (or 'Feathered Serpent') is air-bound and moves towards the heavens and towards the divine. This is a very important symbolism, since the Winged Coiled Serpent represents the transformation of man into the God-Man. The White Dragon also represents our own Milky Way Galaxy which is a spiral form and which has 88 constellations - in two-dimensional form it is a curvilinear swastika.
The Winged Coiled Serpent is also the Feathered Serpent who was called Quetzalcoatl (Aztec) and Kukulkan (Mayan), both seeming to be associated with the Morning Star - Venus. It can be no coincidence that Quetzalcoatl sails across the seas in a boat, just as Sceaf-Ing sails to Scandi in a boat, and both are associated with Venus - Ing being 'Lord of the Elves' and as Ingvi-Frey he is of the Vanir-Gods, hence the association with Venus. Sceaf-Ing is the Divine Ancestor of the English Folk. Both arrive amongst a people as culture-bearers bringing the art of cultivation and science. We also have an account of Sceaf bearing a 'lighted taper' which obviously symbolises Fire which suggests a link with the Fire-Serpent and to the Nyd-Fire or 'Friction-Fire'.

 Many centuries ago, according to the legend, the Serpent came out of the sea and grew wings. ...It had started its journey to the stars, and particularly the Morning Star, when suddenly it was overcome by the waters of the great Flood, which waters inundated the earth. On this occasion the Plumed Serpent did not drown, but it lost its wings.Had these wings not been destroyed, the Serpent would surely have reached the Morning Star, and there in the spacious palace there would have been a meeting. The joy of that encounter could have been expressed only in tears, forming the fruit of eternity.”

The aim is to continue that upward journey to the stars..........

The Woden Mystery Religion.

I think that most people are aware that we need a new Folkish Religion that will bring the English Folk together, unifying the elements that are today broken into factions and split through constant arguments and inter-group strife. Where there was a growing unity of purpose this has now been lost, and the awakening English Consciousness has been distorted and the English Destiny diverted from its true course. In referring to a Folkish Religion I mean an exoteric religion that is clearly based upon a working knowledge of the Eternal Struggle that we are waging against the Sons of Darkness and Matter. It is not enough just to try to revive an old religion which has long been dead and gone, neither is it enough to try to attract the masses at this time - the 'numbers game' will only fail in the long term.
The key to the Woden Folk-Religion lies in its basic tenet that we are entering a New Age and that this requires a new god-form or archetype and that this new archetype is that of Wid-Ar the Avenger. The form of the 'hanged god' is no longer viable, whether 'Christ' or 'Odin' since this archetype does not correspond to the needs of our Folk today. There  were certain comments made in pre-war Germany such as 'Odin is Dead!' which did not imply that these people did not recognise the importance of Odin, but that they recognised that the Odin Archetype of the 'hanged god' was 'dead' and that Odin was to be resurrected as the 'Living God' who had climbed down from the Wolf-Tree and become a new Warrior-God, young and virile since he had resurrected as 'The Son'. This is why we call our religious movement Wodenism since the High God is still Woden but resurrected in the form of his 'Son' - Wid-Ar.
If we look at some different religions of the past - Greek, Roman, Egyptian - we find that each one of them is an exoteric religion aimed at the broad mass of people, but with an esoteric religion or Mystery Religion as a form of 'Inner Order', this being an Initiatory Religion aimed at an inner 'elite' whose role was to keep alive the Ancient Wisdom and pass it on to future generations. Above all, the role of these Mystery Religions was to keep the religion as pure as possible and avoid distortion and destruction from outside.
Now we can see the true role of Woden's Folk which has always been based more upon the esoteric side of the religion - as a true Mystery Religion. Wodenism was revived by Woden's Folk as an exoteric religion needed by the English Folk, and within this (from the start) was the Inner Order or Mystery Religion in one form or another. The emphasis (at this time) was towards the esoteric because such a new form of religion needs time to establish itself before it can be promoted to a wider audience. If this had not been done the whole thing would have become distorted and lose its origins within the Folkish Movement.
The first thing that any Mystery Religion needs is a connection to the Sacred Centre, the Gods and Ancestors. This has been aptly proven by many of the strange phenomena that have been either witnessed or photographed at our Folk-Moots, especially those that we have done at the Wayland's Smithy. Through the Hearth of Wayland (OR), the original White Dragon Kindred, and then Woden's Folk we have used this sacred site for the last 25 years or so - and we shall continue to do so into the future since we have had proof of the effect of our work at this site on many occasions.
There is another thing that sets WF apart from some Odinist and non-Folkish Wodenist groups is that we see the god Woden in a far different role than is usual given to him -
1. The Wolf-God and Leader of the Mannerbunde.
2. The Wild Huntsman - this is a far darker role than is usually attributed to Woden.
3. The Leader of the Einheriar and thus the god that leads the Forces of Light against the Forces of Darkness and Chaos.
4. The resurrection of Woden as Wid-Ar who is the Avenging God and whose incarnation we await in our times - an avatar role.
5. The Mystical Initiator into the Light of Higher Consciousness whose role is to aid the evolution of our Folk upwards towards the Superman. In this role Woden leads the revolt against the 'Dark Lord' that controls the world today, and has locked mankind into the material world and broken the link with the Spiritual Worlds.
6. The Avatar role, which recognises that Woden incarnates on Earth at certain periods of the Cosmic Cycle, and that He came down to our Folk from 1933-1945 to wage a Holy War against the Darkness and to expose the Great Enemy that seeks the total destruction of our Folk.

7. Woden as the 'Serpent-Slayer' the role shown in the Nine Herbs Charm the key to which is the 33-rune Atalland Rune-Row which goes back into very ancient times, and which has been revived by the Ar-Kan Rune-Lag within Woden's Folk.
These aspects of the Woden Folk-Religion separates WF from any other Wodenist group, hence why we stick to the term Folkish Wodenism to differentiate from those who do not take our line. We recognise the need for an initiatory Mystery Religion that will keep our work from getting distorted and 'watered-down' through a more 'populist' approach that will play the 'number's game' (this is always true of any movement, and a close look at the 'nationalist' scene of the past 50 years or so will verify that this happens). The strength of WF has always been in its Inner Order which has remained true to our weltanshauung, ideology and ideas and has kept the new religious movement from being distorted or destroyed.
What is most important at this time is to disseminate our ideas to a wider audience, since this is how we can establish our work at an exoteric level. It is well established that after around 2005 the original mainly-Christian based 'Englisc' scene moved towards the heathen religion of Wodenism and this was due to the work of Woden's Folk - the hard work of all WF Activists who took time and effort to work for this aim. Unfortunately, the 'Englisc' scene became full of internal strife and arguments, fall-outs over the most petty things, rampant egoism and the usual problem of 'too many chiefs and not enough Indians'. The fact that this scene was not Folkish in outlook made for a situation in which very few 'English Nationalists' knew anything about the world-situation and many followed the new street-movements that are clearly state-sponsored and backed, and whose aim was to continue the 'official' war on 'World-Wide Terrorism' at every level, in the process controlling the so-called 'right' as much as the 'left' had been previously.
The importance of the Woden Mystery Religion cannot be overemphasised, because since the original awakening of English Consciousness (through the awakening of the symbol of the White Dragon) the whole thing has been distorted and the English Awakening has not taken place. The only way for WF is to step back and to move towards the more esoteric Woden Mystery Religion with our work being aimed at the magical awakening of the White Dragon symbol within the consciousness of the English Folk. Through certain magical rites and talismanic rites the White Dragon was 'roused' so we need to return to this stage to start over again in the process of this awakening. This time the emphasis will be on the Folkish Movement as the basis for an English Awakening - Woden's Folk will keep the Flame of the Folkish Movement alive until such time as the Last Avatar arises here in England.
