"Time Zero"


When the Dark Forces, in very ancient times, stole the Ancient Aryan Mysteries, they got hold of the Ancient Wisdom that had been built up over thousands of years, and which was (to them) a source of might and power which they could use to control situations and people, and to further an agenda that has come to fruition in our era. 

The rather idiotic term 'Woke Culture' has arisen, not surprisingly in an era of 'controlled insanity'. The term typically uses incorrect English in a way that suggests it stems either from an illiterate source, or is a kind of 'take' on what is right. These people are far from 'awake', but like the 'enlightened' or 'illuminated' they can dream! With this came the destruction of our past, our history, which started through 'Black Lives Matter', a front for a Marxist Revolution that would destroy the past, thus paving the way for a 'New World Order'. (No lives matter to these people, only how they can use others to further their aims.)

The French Revolution destroyed the Era of Kingship, and at this time the aim was to create a 'Time Zero'. This is a critical concept because this term has again arisen with the 'Great Reset' where the term 'Time Zero' is again being used. What this is can be summed up in the idea that in order to create a 'New World Order' the past has to be destroyed in order to pave the way for brand new values and concepts. This is, in fact, a 'New Creation', and thus has to conform with an Archetypal Myth and that is the Myth of Creation. Where most go wrong here is that they fail to recognise that 'Creation' did not happen at one time and in one place sometime in the past - Creation takes places at every moment, and at certain times there is a 'New Creation' that takes place that changes everything in an instance. This is what is happening today.




The crown on the top of the tower is falling off, blasted by the Lightning-Bolt; this is symbolic of the fall of 'Kingship' and its replacement by capitalism and mercantilism. The fall of the 'Twin Towers' of capitalism (World Trade Centre) was another change and 'new creation', from the Capitalist Era to the 'New World Order' and a Global Government. There is a strange 'coincidence' in the above Tarot Card because it is numbered XVI (16); it was Louis XVI whose reign was toppled by the French Revolution! 




The above is The Tower in a brand new version by Aleister Crowley, and this has some very interesting changes -

  • At the top, overseeing the destruction of the tower is the 'All-Seeing Eye' of the Illuminati.
  • Next to this is the 'Dove of Peace' (left) and the 'Lion-Serpent - Abraxas' (right).
  • At the bottom are the 'Jaws of Dis' belching flames of destruction that topples the tower.
'The picture shows the destruction of existing material by fire. It may be taken as the preface to Atu XX, the Last Judgement, i.e. the Coming of a New Aeon.'

Aleister Crowley (The Book of Thoth).

Crowley sees the 'All-Seeing Eye' as the Eye of Horus, or the Eye of Shiva the Destroyer. Crowley's Book of the Law was received in 1904, and this card he called 'War'; two world-wars followed this, wars that destroyed the Old Order, but which paved the way for the 'New World Order'. 

The Germanic Creation Myth is that the Giant YMIR (Chaos) is 'slain' by the Triple Creative-Godhead WODEN-WILL-WEOH, and his body is then cut into parts which make up the Cosmos. This is the Archetypal Myth of Creation and it entails a Blood Sacrifice, whether this seems right or wrong. The French Revolution brought into being the 'Third Estate' - Capitalism and Mercantilism - and this was brought into being by a bloodbath! It is doubtful indeed that the change from the Global Capitalism of today to the Global Communitarianism which the Bankers and Money-Lenders and their Marxist Agents want will become a reality without some form of bloodshed. The fall of the Twin Towers was the herald of the destruction of the Old Order (capitalism) and the change to the New World Order (Marxist Communism/Communitarianism but with a 'management of a 'Money-Elite' below the Hidden Elite). To put into place a 'New Creation' then a 'Time Zero' must be set.

This is true of every form of ritual whose aim should be to jump from the 'mundane time' into a Sacred Time and Sacred Space. This 'Sacred Time' is that of the 'First Time' or 'Time of the Gods', the era when the Archetypes and Archetypal Myths came into being. This is the Zep Tepi of the Egyptians, and in Norse Mythology it is referred to when using the phrase Ar var Alda, which has been covered in a previous post. The 'Sacred Space' is in fact the 'sacred place' where the ritual is undertaken; after hallowing the area this become a 'sacred place', but it also becomes a 'Sacred Space'. The aim is to return to a 'Time Zero' and thus to connect the time that it takes place with this Mythical Time, and thus the past and the present are made one. 

On August 11th 1999 the Solar Eclipse (Black Sun) heralded the conception of the Age of Ing; it also heralded the resurrection of Ingwe - the Divine Son. In May the following year (2000) there was an important planetary alignment; this took place NINE MONTHS LATER. Some time later the 'Foot and Mouth' disease resulted in a massive 'Blood Sacrifice' of cattle here in England, where white-clothed officials acted like a 'priesthood' over the slaughter of the cattle. In some cultures (Celtic is one I believe) the ending and beginning of a new world-age is brought into being through the sacrifice of a Bull or Ox - the 'Sacrificial Ox'





Sign of Ing - Sign of the Son of Man


When this happened I tried to explain the importance of our using the term Age of Ing and that this 'New Age' would start in the Year 2000, with the 'birth' after the nine-months 'conception period'. Thus we would have the sequence -

Year 1 - Age of Ing (2001).

Year 2 - Age of Ing (2002).

Year 3 - Age of Ing (2003).

Thus a new 2,000 year period would begin as 2001, starting from the ancient concept of Year Zero or Time Zero. Although I have stated the importance of this we have not really taken this up seriously, and because of the move by the Enemy to create their own 'Time Zero' it is now not just important but is essential if we are to counter their Global Agenda. 

The 'Age of Lead' which is the era that we are living through now, according to Don Miguel Serrano, is one of great oppression and suffering for everyone. We are seeing this now and this will not get any better soon; not until the start of the Age of the Water-Jug (Aquarius) when the Last Avatar will appear. But rather than dwell on an 'Age of Lead' and its negative form we can create a positive change in ourselves through the 'Age of Ing' or the 'Age of the Son', which in reality is the Age of the Heroes. This is the liminal period between world-ages, between the outgoing Age of Pisces and the incoming Age of the Water-Jug. This is an era when Folk-Heroes must arise to keep the Flame of Freedom alive through this tyranny. 

We are seeing growing opposition and resentment to what is going on, but we need to keep in mind that when the masses yell for 'freedom' they refer to being able to get back to their 'normal' which was certainly not 'freedom'. For things to go back to where they were would be no benefit to us either. The mass of people always resist change, and that is why the Global Agenda has sprung this on us so quickly this time. Gradual change has been the way so far, but now the change has been almost instant, and they would have known that this would create growing opposition - which they are well prepared for and as we can see the organised opposition has already been suppressed (for now). We have seen how the true opposition has been denied a platform to speak on YouTube, Facebook, and other social media etc. What is left, in the main, is a growing opposition without any form of organisation nor any ideology and ideals - which are essential for any positive movement for change. 

The doctrine and ideology of Marxist Communism has long been put in place, tried out, and then put aside for a later time - which is coming into place now. I use the term 'Marxist' because Karl Marx was the main proponent of Communism and its ideology, though there are various forms that sprang up. We are already aware that the Global Corporations are owned by a handful of people, and are thus already centralised; a Marxist Communist System would merely make this 'official' as a World State System controlled on these lines, with the money-powers remaining at a managerial level, whilst at the bottom would be a race of slaves to these people - producers and consumers. This system, already nearly in place, would be far better for the power-elite who could more easily control the world through it, and make it (like China) a very efficient slave-state. 

Whilst they are preparing a 'Time Zero' we already have ours in place - the Age of Ing is the 'Age of Heroes', an age running parallel to their 'Lead Age' or 'Warg-Age' when the Great Wolf swallows the Spirit of Man, and the Wolves of Loki swallow the power of the Sun and Moon. The Great Darkness is growing, but we have passed the Yuletide of the Great Year (1933 - 1939) when the seeds of a New Order were sown, and at this time (The Winter) we can expect a period of destruction, dissolution and chaos. The Yuletide or Midwinter is the time of the Longest Darkness, so our time is when the Light Forces are waxing again and even though this is a harsh and violent time the Forces of Light will grow and grow in strength until finally the Last Avatar will appear to destroy the Darkness and Chaos. 

The 'Star Wars' films were based upon the battle between Light and Darkness, Order and Chaos, between the 'Empire' and the 'Republic'. The military leader is Daath Vader, whose name is based upon 'Daath' which is the reverse-side of the Cabalistic Tree of Life - the Shadow Realm. 'Vader' is the same as our own 'wate' or 'wod' meaning 'movement'. Daath Vader uses a form of 'physical magic' through the 'Light Sabre'; above him is the Emperor who is an Evil Sorcerer. He is a 'Hidden Power' that uses Dark Sorcery, and he is the ultimate power in the Dark Empire. We should keep this in mind because this is the structure that we face within the Dark Forces. 



We are now in Year 20 - Age of Ing and in the present circumstances it is perhaps time to create a Magical Change through the use of the Holy Runes, using the Heilige Lines in order to awaken the White Dragon of Ing. But this cannot work alone because it needs 'earthing', and that can only be done through the use of the 'Time Zero' which was the Year 0 - Age of Ing and using the new time-structure from this date. This is the Age of Ing when the 'crown-less again shall be king'. 




From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A Light from the Shadow shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The Crown-less again shall be King.

(Lord of the Rings)

New Book Series & Magazine Relaunch.


 

My latest book is now available from BLACK FRONT PRESS and is Volume 1 of a three-volume set.

blackfrontpress@yahoo.co.uk

This is a work that puts together the posts on the Ar-Kan Rune-Lag Blog and is thus an esoteric work. I do feel that it is vitally important to put such articles into print as soon as we can, since the 'Electronic System' is more than capable of taking down what they do not agree with and ensuring that it is lost to us. Paper copies are longer-lasting and we should not lose the ability to save what we can in books. 




The Sword of Wayland is published twice a year as a glossy-covered 20-page magazine that covers the esoteric and exoteric side of Folkish Wodenism. This is a magazine for the Woden Folk-Religion and is now available to anyone who supports our Folkish Movement. The paper edition is ONLY available in the UK I am afraid, due to postage costs etc. but we now have an ONLINE EDITION that will go out to our Folk-Comrades overseas. This will be sent out as a PDF Edition.

Sword of Wayland - UK.

You will receive a Midwinter Edition 2020 and a Midsummer Edition 2021, and the cost is £15.00 for the two issues to be paid by PayPal please. Make sure you give your name and mailing address please, as well as an email address.

Widar58@gmail.com

Sword of Wayland - Overseas.

We can only do this through an ONLINE ISSUE which will cost £10.00 for the two issues. If you wish we can send you updates on important issues as well. Please give your name an an email address to send the PDF File to.

Widar58@gmail.com


I have to apologise for not putting some comments up very quickly because the system changed a bit and I did not notice at first. If anyone wishes to discuss any subject with me they can email me at -

Raedbad@outlook.com

This is an email address used for contacts but please do not inundate us with too many questions because this takes up valuable time. But please feel free to make contact and we'll try to answer your questions if we can. We would also welcome feedback on the blogs. 

This is just a temporary update on things and I will take this down after a few weeks since it is not the sort of stuff to be needed long-term. Please note the details down and the Contact Email Address for future reference. Thank you for continued support from wherever you are, this is so much appreciated. These times are very hard and it is good to see more people standing up against this Global Tyranny

Toten Heer - The Army of the Dead - Part Two

Loki's Brood.

The Midgard Serpent - This is the World Serpent that encircles the world, and as seen by the symbolism of the serpent devouring its own tail this is a constricting force that slowly binds as it devours itself. At one level (and there are many) this could be equated to Global Finance Capitalism and the Global Bankers who encircle the world controlling everything as they do so. This same image appears in the Vedas as Vritra - the Serpent of Evil. When he is slain even fiercer enemies arise out if him.  

The Fenris Wolf - This is the 'devourer' as can be seen through the image of his devouring Woden at Ragnarok. We find the same images in the two wolves that devour the Sun and the Moon. This same image appears in the Vedas as the Rakshasas who are the 'eaters', the 'devourers', the 'wolves', the 'haters' and the 'tearers' - they are the Agents of Destruction. The Fenris Wolf could thus be equated with Anarcho-Communists and other Agents of Destruction, for this is all that these people achieve in what they do. This force devours the Spirit of Woden, but he is torn from the Wolf's Jaws by Wid-Ar the Avenger, who then takes on the Spirit of Woden as the All-Father.

Hel - This is a far more complex figure since she is the daughter of Loki who is given a part of Hel to rule over - the Realm of the Dead. But this is only a part of Hela, since there are Dark Areas and Light Areas of this realm. But, as we shall see here, she is a most important figure to us today. We need to consider the figure of Mitothin who is an evil being who once usurped Woden's Power and was captured and slain. His grave was opened and his head cut off and a stake driven through his breast - all shades of the killing of a vampire. Viktor Rydberg sees Mitothin as Loki.

Now, out of the body of Mitothin arises a pest; this is important because Loki is the father of the female Demon of Epidemics and Diseases, Hel, who rules in Niflheim, in the home of the demons of disease. Hel, Loki's daughter, rides the three-legged Hel-Horse, the steed which appears when an epidemic breaks out. This is an ugly-grown horse which brings sickness, epidemics and plagues. There is also a figure called Leikin who is a horse-woman of torture and death. Hel has a 'stopping form' and was cast into Niflhel. 

There are two distinct and opposite forms of Seidh-Sorcery - one is Holy Seidh which is used for good purposes such as healing, the other Evil Seidh (sidha kyni) which is used for evil purposes, and no doubt the bringing of sickness, disease and epidemics. The first Great War of the Gods was fought over the slaying and burning of a figure called Angrboda who was a practitioner of Dark Sorcery, and whose counterpart here in Midgard was Heid, who introduced Dark Sorcery to Middle-earth. Loki, it seems, ate the heart of this Dark Joten and thus took in this evil female form himself. It seems that Angrboda still lived and dwelt in Ironwood, where she gave birth to the Midgard-Serpent, Fenris and Hel, and to all the Evil Wolves (devourers) in the world. 

A planetary alignment of Saturn-Jupiter and Mars in Aquarius occurred on March 20th 1345 with the outbreak of the 'Black Death'. There will be a planetary alignment of Saturn-Jupiter in Aquarius on December 21st 2020, so this is something to think about. Saturn's Day is Loki's Day. That is not to say that the planet Saturn is itself 'evil', but that it is usually considered a planet of ill-omen and death, far different than the original God of the Golden Age.

I have started with this because it is necessary to see how the Germanic Myths foresaw what was coming upon us long ago, and that this is not a struggle of today but an Eternal Struggle. We should be honoured to have been (re-)born into these times to wage this Holy War against the Powers of Darkness and Matter. 

The Great Reset.

This phrase has been banded about by those within the power-elite around the world; it shows clearly how their Global Agenda is unfolding. Most of it is based around economics, what else in a society ruled by gross materialists? But the part that I am going to look at quickly is that of a drastic decrease in the population of the world in order to be left with 'perfect people'. This sounds rather like eugenics but this is far from the truth; what it means, mainly reading in between the lines, is that what will be left of the 'human cull' (this would be a more truthful way to phrase it) will be the conforming masses who have done as they are told, had their microchips and vaccines (or both together), adhered to the 'lockdown' and 'social distancing' and have not 'bucked the system' throughout this time.

Of course, as with everything else that involves these people, they are far from being 'creators', so what we have is a sick parody of the natural evolutionary drive towards perfection through the breeding of a healthy and higher species of Man. The 'Great Initiation' that we are going through today is designed to produce these 'perfect people' - a race of mindless slaves. They are telling us what they are doing but as servants of the 'Father of Lies' they cloth it in false and deceptive language. They know what they mean, and we can see through the lies, but the masses are unable to understand something as big as this. 

It has always been the case that non-conformists have always been the genius's and the creators, whilst conformists change nothing at all. So the world will be no better for all this 'Great Reset' or 'New Normal'. And the way that they will rid themselves of anyone that opposes this is to deny them the ability of live in this 'New World Order'. This will be done through the Cashless Society where they will have ID and Microchip whence they can withdraw the ability to buy or to sell from any individual. There is no doubt that those who refuse a vaccine will also be subject to such restrictions, but they need to get rid of cash altogether to make it work effectively. 

If we look at this from this angle it is made clear why they are subjecting people to such evil practices as to completely wreck their lives, and in many cases it is the old that will suffer most. Why should this matter, since these will not be the people most able to work as slaves to the produce-and-consume society they are building. This will be expanded to others in a vulnerable situation, since it appears that the 'liberal-humanitarian' stage is passing now because it is no longer needed. They will have to put on a 'face' for now though so as not to reveal their true intentions. 

"...if there ever was a civilisation of slaves on a grand scale, the one in which we are living is it. No traditional civilisation ever saw such great masses of people condemned to perform shallow, impersonal, automatic jobs; in the contemporary slave system the counterparts of figures such as lords or enlightened rulers are nowhere to be found. This slavery is imposed subtly through the tyranny of the economic factor and through the absurd structures of a more or less collectivised society."

Julius Evola.

The Army of the Dead.

So where does that leave us in all of this? We should now look back to how Russian Communism managed to kill off anything up to 60 Million people (some say more), and this was done through mass-starvation, a typical part of all Communist Revolutions. In our times the process is already being started through the destruction of Rural England and the drive to urbanise larger and larger areas of our land. Forcing people into urban areas means they can better control the masses through surveillance CCTV and through an efficient urban police force which is well-equipped and no doubt nearer to being fully armed. (Whilst the rest of the people have been disarmed.) 

The 'Great Reset' seems to be designed to create a World State run on the lines of Communist China, which is a totally centralised state-system based upon a fusion of Capitalism and Communism. This may well be the most efficient slave-state around in our times, and it works well enough to supply much of the world's goods, notwithstanding the lives of the 'slaves' they use to create these goods. But we can see that they are shoddy, poorly-made goods that do not last, and never could last since they have to keep the wheels going forever in such a produce-and-consume world. 

Those who oppose such a system based upon gross materialism that devours the Spirit of Man will have no part in this new world of theirs. We should now stop and think about this, because it means that as far as these psychopaths are concerned we are dead. They will have no qualms about putting into place their plans that will mean that we lose the means to live our lives, in fact lose the means to live. To them we do not have the right to live at all because we oppose their sick ideas, and we do not wish to live in a world of slaves ruled over by such evil. Let us look at this another way - we now have nothing whatever to lose, because we are already 'dead'. If we accept this then we shall be in a far better position to face the hardships that are coming upon us. We are certainly becoming the 'solitaries' of Nietzsche and Sajaha - the Lone Wolves. 



We are now the Army of the Dead and our god is Woden Herian - the Leader of the Army of the Dead. This brings us closer to The Ancestors and to the Fallen Heroes in Valhalla, where they await us when we are called to join them after this great and glorious struggle. If we understand the concept of the Army of the Dead, that this is a Spirit-Army led by Woden Herian, then we are in a position to invoke this mighty force within ourselves, to become possessed by the Army of the Dead. Or, put another way, to become possessed by the Spirit of Woden




The concept of the Cultic-Warrior is becoming more and more important as this oppression worsens. In such times we may think too much of the physical survival rather than maintaining a balance between the physical, mental and spiritual. Yes, physical survival is important, but creating a Cultic-Warrior Brotherhood is essential if we are to recreate the Halidom within ourselves and a section of society that opposes this tyranny. 

Ek Im Unmordsa - Ek Thikskoad!

I am the Immortal - I watch you!





The 'sacrifice' entails three distinct phases -

  • Kindle the Nyd-Fire - the Divine Flame.
  • The Offering of Bread and Mead.
  • The Chanting of the Sacred Word - the Rune-Chant. 

By the Sacred Word and the Sacred Offering the gods are increased; they are said to be born, created, or manifested in Man. This is the mystery that we need to know and understand, because by making the 'sacrifice' (which is an offering of oneself really) the gods are brought into being or manifested upon the Earth. This, of course, also applies to The Ancestors - the Einheriar - who are also manifested upon Earth. 

Sceadu-Beorn - The Shadow-Warrior.

'...the Harii...black are their shields, their bodies painted; for battles they pick the blackest nights, and by their very dreadfulness - and more - the semblance of an Army of the Dead - they produce terror.'

Germania - Tacitus.

We know that 'All-Hallows' (Halloween) is a festival when children dress up in 'hellish' costumes, skeletal attire, wield an axe, sword or trident, dress in black and white in the semblance of 'The Dead'. This is clearly a remnant if a much more ancient ritual when the youth dressed as an Army of the Dead, and in doing so they invoked the Army of the Dead. They were not just 'mimicking' the dead, they were being possessed by the Dead Warriors. 

  • Black Garb,
  • The Black Flag,
  • Black & Red or Black, Red and White.
  • Weaponry,
  • The Sacred Mask of Woden.
  • The Death's Head Symbol.
  • The Wolf-Skin that invokes the Wolf-Fury in the Shadow-Warrior.
  • The Belt or Cord worn around the waist; the buckle or tie is over the Hara-Centre.

In any invocation it is necessary to take a ritual part through wearing the trappings of what one is invoking. Doing so creates a situation in which the one who invokes becomes one with the force being invoked. In this way the force that is invoked actually possesses the individual, and thus the full force of this power becomes one with the Shadow-Warrior. 

This is how the Heri or Army of the Dead were immune to fear and pain, because they had the Teuton-Fury or Wolf-Fury within them, and became, like Cu Chullain, of a 'hellish' appearance to others in battle. They were able to achieve super-human acts which others could not do. Now this is certainly not impossible, and has been recorded as fact even in our times. There have been so many cases of an individual being able to bring into being some form of superhuman strength because their state of mind became unbalanced due to some trauma. One case was where a small woman's child was trapped under a car and she actually lifted the car up so that the child could be released. On trying again at a later time she could not do so. This was because we have that latent power but in order to release it we have to have the will to do so. This has to be done as an unconscious act brought on by necessity




The Nyd-Rune is a rune associated with Death; it is also that of 'necessity', where an obstacle is placed in one's way, and through sheer act of Will the individual overcomes the obstacle. Far more inventions come from warfare than they do in times of peace, since necessity drives people to invent in order to survive such times. We can see how this is the Friction-Fire where a Steel-Striker (upright stave) is used to produce a spark by rubbing a knife down it (cross-stave). This is what we invoke - the Sacred Fire - when doing the first part of 'The Sacrifice'. 





On the Horns of Gallehus we can see that there are two distinct and different types of figures - one is carved as a solid, the other as a form of 'dotted' figure, as if the latter is not in the same reality, not in the same world, but is of the Spirit-World. 

The Sacred Centre.




We can see clearly on the 'Posture-Horn' of the Horns of Gallehus that the Peorth-Rune was used as the posture when playing the Taefl-Board. This can be seen on the top row, second row, fifth row and seventh row (the dice on this section). Today we think of this as a 'board-game' but originally this was not actually a 'game', but had a far deeper and more significant meaning. 

Taefl would have been played as a dice-game and game of chance (I will use the term 'game' here for convenience). The game centres around the 'king' who is positioned at the centre - the Sacred Centre. This is where Woden sits and sees all - Hlidsjalf. There would have been Black and White pieces as in chess, and Woden would have been the White King. The aim of the game is to capture the Sacred Centre. This is a most interesting point because it gives a hint as to what is going on around us in that the 'Sacred Centre' has been usurped by the Powers of Darkness whose control is centred there and radiates outwards around Midgard. Why else would the 'Holy Land' of the Slave-God religions be centred in Jerusalem? 

As I have said before, the Sacred Tablets mentioned in the Eddas are to be found in the Inner Earth, where they lie until after the Great Cataclysm and this Inner Earth arises to become the New Earth. This is the Idhya Groena which is the 'Ever-Green' or 'Very-Green' land also known as Greenland, not to be confused with the physical island named thus. Thus, when the Taefl-Game is played here in Midgard, there is a parallel world where this has an affect also. The Sacred Centre is known to the Teutonic Folk as Thule, which is a Centre of Initiation. 

"The submergence of Thule was not of the waters but of the Blood. Sooner or later its Adepts will seek to reawaken Thule once more."

Ultima Thule - The Vanished Northern Homeland. Bernard King.

Miguel Serrano talks again and again about the 'control of the centre', and it seems clear that today this control is held by the Powers of Darkness, which is why their power is so strong. But the true Sacred Centre is the Spiritual Centre in the North, where stands the Midnight Mountain and the Black Sun. This is not in this world, but is in a Spiritual World. This is where the true power is held, the earthly and physical 'centre' being a physical centre of power - and no more. 




The Black Sun is the Source of Infinite Power and the Dark Light; this is the Source of All. This symbol should be used as a meditation-visualisation, as a form of mandala. This is the Black Sun of the Shadow-Warrior and is so important to the Cultic-Warrior Brotherhoods. 

The Transformation.






The Long Man of Wilmington is in the shape of the Cweorth-Rune - the Rune of Transformation by Fire. The figure is that of Woden, but in a form which we call Waendal, a word that is usually said to mean 'to wind', or 'to turn'. This seems to be right, but there is yet another meaning to the word wandal and that is 'to transform'. This figure is that of the Great Initiator who transforms the Woden Initiate through Cultic-Initiation. 





The God of the Mannerbund is Woden, and the weapon of the Cultic-God is the Club, as shown above in the Herne Giant. The name 'Cerne Abbas Giant' is a very late term and does not stem from 'Cernunnos' whose image is found only in Gaul, and is certainly not 'pan-Celtic' as some seem to think. In fact, the only name that has come down to us of this hill-figure is the Saxon Heil, a name which has never been interpreted, but seen as a corruption of 'Helios'. It is Saxon so why on earth would it have had a Greek name? Indeed, there is a Germanic concept of the Heilbringer, which suggests that this figure is linked to this idea. (*)

(*) The Herne Giant has recently been desecrated by the agents of Amazon to promote a new film. This was done without the permission of the National Trust, who manage the site, and once again we see a Global Corporation insulting the Gods of our Folk. 




Here these morons have placed a face-mask over the Phallus of Heil and the words - 'WEAR MASK. - SAVE LIVE'. Not the right English but what can we expect from such idiots. This is not the only place this has been done, and other sites around England have been used to promote this obvious 'propaganda film'. I have not seen it, and will not do so I am afraid. 

Note: the term 'evil' stems from a PGmc. Root *abuxas- which means 'bent back' or 'inverted'. This gives credence to the use of the terms EVIL-LIVE, each of which is an 'inverted' form of the other. 

This Cultic Initiation is so important to the concept of the Cultic-Warrior Brotherhood; it forms the basis of such a Brotherhood because every individual has to become a part of the whole through such Initiation. This means a transformation in the individual, who passes through a Death-to-Rebirth ritual, being a form of 'play' in which the individual takes part in. The most important concept is that these are Oath Brotherhoods in which sworn oaths are made, oaths that cannot, and must not, be broken. This is where we today come up against a great problem, because from experience there are far too many people who do not hold true to the oaths they have made. Oaths are not trivial statements, they are binding and should not be broken. 

"The Souls of the Dead as the Army of the Dead which involves itself in the battles of the living."

Wikander.



Sacred Steal-Right.

The Cultic-Warriors had the Sacred Right to Steal since they had no property nor family (since they had been detached from society and family - as many have today). Laws should be there to protect a people and a Folk-Nation, and to ensure the well-being and survival of the Folk. When such laws oppress the people, and are aimed to destroy, then these laws must be rejected in favour of Natural Law and the Laws of the Gods - which we should uphold anyway. A different set of values must come into being when we are dealing with those who seek our destruction.




The Totenkult & The Ahnenkult.

"The consecrated members of the Bund are immortal and are one with the Spirits of the Dead."

Wikander.

The secret here is in the word 'consecrated' ('hallowed') since it is through the Cultic Initiation that the Cultic-Warrior becomes an Immortal and thus becomes 'one with the Spirits of the Dead'. Cultic-Initiation is necessary for this transformation to take place, hence the reason for a Cultic-Warrior Bund. 




The ancient burial-mounds (burghs) scattered around England are sites to visit and to 'sit-out' (utiseti) upon in order to commune with the Spirits of the Dead. Wayland's Smithy is a place where some individuals within Woden's Folk have experienced the presence of the Ancestral Spirits. I will not go over this subject again, but many years ago I was made aware that the Rune-Chant ALU was linked to the Ancestral Spirits, through an experience at Wayland's Smithy. This runic formula was certainly used on Saxon Burial Urns and is thus connected to the Dead. Since the word itself means some form of Magical Force, connected with 'Ale' and thus 'intoxication', then its use should be made within the context of the Cultic-Warrior Bund. 


AESC - THE ANCESTRAL RUNE


"Lo! There do I see my father. Lo! There do I see my mother, my sisters and my brothers. Lo! There do I see the line of my people, back to the beginning. Lo! They do call to me, they bid me take my place in the Halls of Valhalla, where the brave may live forever."

Hail the Victorious Dead!

Hail the Glorious Dead!

Toten-Heer - The Army of the Dead - Part One

 





Woden - The One-Eyed Wolf-God.

The One-Eyed Wolf-God known as Woden (English) Wodan (Germans/Frisians), Wotan (Germans), Odin (Norse and Wydion (Gwydion - most likely originating with the Belgae) was the Leader of the Wild Army who led the Army of the Dead across the skies of Europe. As I have shown before, this One-Eyed God was known here in England as far back as 2,250 BCE -



Dagenham Idol - Woden


The famous song Ghost Riders in the Sky is based upon the Army of the Dead riding the skies and this phenomena was seen over England before World War II. The famous English Hero - Edric the Wild - was one of the leaders of the Wild Army, and rode with his 'Fairy-Wife' across the English Skies. The other famous Leader of the Wild Hunt is Herne the Hunter who is so well known here in England amongst Folkish Wodenists and Odinists as to need no introduction. 




'In the Days of the Lion, spawned of the Evil Brood, The Hooded Man shall come to the forest. There he will meet with Herne the Hunter - Lord of the Trees - to be his Son and do his bidding. The Power of Light and the Power of Darkness shall be strong within him. And the guilty shall tremble!'

The Hooded Man Prophecy - October 31st 1993 (Horam, South Saxon Mark).

"The Power of Light and the Power of Darkness" - Woden loses one of his eyes; he sacrifices this eye in order to gain wisdom. This eye is placed in the Well of Mimir, the 'Well of Memory', and he is thus 'blind' in this one-eye. This is a crucial point because the word 'blind', when used in the Germanic Tongues, can also mean 'dark', or even 'hidden'. One of his eyes is 'Light' (because he can see outwards with it) and one of his eyes is 'dark' (because he is 'blind' in that eye); Woden thus holds within himself the Power of Light and the Power of Darkness. This should be quite clear when we look at The Hooded Man.






The name 'Robin' stems from 'Robert' a Germanic name meaning 'Fame-Bright'; the name 'Hood' is a corruption of 'Hooden' which is a name used of Woden, especially in Kent. Thus the name 'Robin Hood' means Fame-Bright Hooden - Robin Hood is Woden. The term 'Hood' can also mean 'Darkness'. Robin Hood is the One-Eyed figure wearing a Red Hood and Cloak who wanders the forests of England. In the above symbolism we have the Ger-Rune and the Ing-Rune, as well as a number of 'hidden runes'; the Ger-Rune is symbolic of the 'Light and Darkness' in balance.





The Germanic Folk originally seem to have split the yearly cycle into two parts - Summer (Light) and Winter (Dark). This is the symbolism of the above Ger-Rune, split by the upright stave. The Germanic Yeara-Rune has the same symbolism but in a cyclic movement. This idea fits with the ancient Vedic year which was broken into the Devayana - The Time of the Gods, from the Winter Sunstead to the Summer Sunstead - and the Pitrayana - The Time of the Ancestors, from the Summer Sunstead to the Winter Sunstead. We are today in the 'Time of the Ancestors' and approaching the time of the Ancestral Rites - October 31st (All Hallow's Eve - Halloween) November 9th/November 11th (Einheriar Day). Halloween is the 'Festival of the Dead' which seems quite clear by the symbols used for this festival - which have obviously been distorted by the materialists. It is from October 31st through to the Winter Sunstead that The Ancestors are honoured, and the two dates are when the veils between the worlds are thinnest and the dead can appear amongst the living. This is the time of year ruled over by Woden in his winter aspect as 'Herne the Hunter' - the Leader of the Wild Hunt -




The Herne Giant (Cerne Abbas) - Heil (Saxon)

(Orion the Hunter)




Long Man of Wilmington

(Cygnus the Swan)

The summer aspect of the god Woden can be found in the symbolism of the 'Long Man of Wilmington' which represents Cygnus the Swan. The Swan is symbolic of Thule, and in the above Woden (Waendal) is opening the Gateway to the Gods - the Gateway to Thule. 




The motif of Woden's Eye as the Eye in the Well or the Eye in the Spring is interesting in view of the various root-words connected to the term 'eye' and the word 'well' -

IE Root *wel- (1) - 'To see'

IE Root *wel- (2) - 'To will', 'To wish'.

IE Root *wel- (3) - 'To turn', To roll' (spring).

IE Root *wel- (4) - 'To tear', 'To pull'.

We have here the idea of 'see' (eye) and 'spring' (turn, roll, wind); but we have also a root 'to tear' which is always associated with the Wolf - the 'tearer'. Thus the One-Eyed Wolf-God. In Old Norse a pit full of water was called an auga meaning 'eye'. There is a Latvian word aka which means 'well' and a Russian word oka meaning 'eye'. The name Varuna seems to stem from *wel-uno meaning a 'seer' or 'wise one', and Kris Kershaw says that Weland the Smith was one-eyed, and the name 'Weland' may derive from *wel- meaning 'to see'. His son is Witega, a name which, in Old English, means 'seer' or 'prophet'. 

We have various figures who appear as one-eyed (haiha-hari = 'One-Eyed Hero) in European Mythology -

Hagen - Norse.
Svipdag Blindi - Norse. (*)
Blind Hod - Norse.
Lugaid (Light) - Ireland.
Ingcel Caech - Ireland.
Coll mac Moria - Ireland.
Cu Chullain - Ulster Hero.
Lykurgus - Sparta.

(*) The 'Dag' who slays Helgi Hundingsbane (Helgi the Wulfinga) is probably Svip-Dag, and as he wields the Spear of Woden we may see him as Woden himself, slaying his Germanic Hero who is then welcomed into Valhalla. Only Woden himself can slay his Chosen Hero. 

There is a Midwinter Myth in which the 'Old King' is slain when his hall is burned down at Midwinter - the change of the yearly cycle from the 'Time of the Ancestors' to the 'Time of the Gods'. This is found in the following -

Ingcel - Ireland.
Hjorvarth and Ingeld - Scylding (Denmark).
Bran the Blessed (Welsh).

It is very strange how such an Archetypal Myth plays out at various times of the Cycle of the Ages, Archetypal Myth is played out in historical events -



Robert Matthews - Bruder Schweigen

(Died in his burning hall December 8th 1984)



The Irish god Lugh is also a One-Eyed God since he closes one eye in battle; his counterpart in Wales is Lleu/Llew who is the Son of Gwydion and who has Woden's Myth of hanging upon an Oak-Tree. The myth of the 'father' has been here passed to the 'son'. When Tiw loses his Right-Hand (Tir-Rune) he becomes Woden who takes the Left-Hand Path, these mysteries being found in the Lagu-Rune, a rune which can be equated with Lug/Lugh obviously. In fact the name 'Lugh' may well be linked to the Greek lykos meaning 'wolf'. There is an Irish ruler of the Land of the Dead named Donn whose name means 'The Dark One' (modern 'Dunn'). There is also a Luch-Donn which then means 'Light-Dark'. Opposites are here held within themselves, even though this may not be first seen. 

Interestingly, Tacitus refers to a tribe called the Lugii or Lugi who some scholars deem to be Celtic, but Tacitus refers to them as part of the Vandals, a famous Germanic Tribe. These were obviously related in some way to the god Lug; it is time that this 'Celtic-Germanic' divide was dropped, hence why I use the term 'Germanic', since the Romans claimed these were the 'Genuine Ones'. 



Tiw - Right Hand Missing

The Wolf or Dog has long been associated with the Dead; the ghostly Black Shuck seen in East Anglia is an example of this. The Hittite word for the Wolf is UR-BAR-RA, which seems to derive from the Sumerian UR-BARA meaning 'Dog of the Outside'. Woden is the Son of Bor, the Son of Buri, and both the names 'Bor' and 'Buri' are connected to the wild animal, especially the Wolf. The word that the Greeks and Romans used for the Germanic Tribes was Barbarian (Bar-Bar-ian) and it is possible that they may have used this term due to the Wolfish-Howl used by these warriors in battle. 


Woden - God of the Dead.




'The Souls of the Dead as the Army of the Dead which involves itself in the battles of the living.'

Wikander.





'Woden himself is a spirited weapons-dancer in the imagination of Germanic Heathenism. Weapons-Dance and Woden-Religion go together as intimately as the weapons-dance of the Roman Salii with the worship of Mars.'

Hauck.

Here Woden leads his Ulfhednar in a weapons-dance; there may be a key to the way in which these dances were done in the German numbers system, when we match these to English Words -

Ein - 'In'

Zwei - 'Sway'

Drei - 'Turn'

'In-Sway-Turn' may well be a dance-form since we find reference to the idea of 'swaying' and 'turning' in various ancient dance-forms that have come down to us today. In her book Spellcraft - The English Heroic Legends Katherine Herbert uses such a dance (not exactly as I have done) in a 'fertility' rite - though war and fertility went hand-in-hand in Germanic Heathenism.

The Dead are the Honoured Ancestors - the Immortals - in whom the Life-Force, the Divine Spark, is far more potent than when they were alive. These are the Einheriar - The Immortal Warriors. 

Woden-Herian : Leader of the Heri.

The word heri stems from a Germanic *herjanaz and back to the IE Root *koryo-no-s which has the meaning 'to make a predatory raid', 'to plunder', 'to ravage', 'to destroy'. The English called the Vikings here due to their raiding and plundering - originally this was for cattle and the abduction of women, the Vikings later plundering gold and abducted women too. These are part and parcel of Germanic Law, as was the Stehlrecht - 'Right to Steal'. Everyday life was like this, making the Germanic Folk a strong and hardy people, freedom-loving with honour and loyalty to their Gods, Ancestors and Folk. Death was looked upon as a part of Life. Woden is Leader of the Heri - the Toten-Heer is the Army of the Dead.

The Germanic Mannerbund is the earthly counterpart of the Mythical Einheriar; they are the Cultic-Warrior Brotherhoods that existed throughout Europe, who were led by the One-Eyed Hunter-God, Woden. The Einheriar are Woden's Warriors whose role is to defend Midgard against the Devouring Wolf. Both Woden and Thunor are Mannerbund-Gods, as shown on the Horns of Gallehus. 



Ek Im Unmurdsa - Ek Thikskoad!

"I am Immortal - I watch you!"


The figure at the centre bearing a Spear and a Noose is most likely Woden Herian, depicted with the Stag and Two Wolves. The Twin-Warriors are probably the Divine Twins - Hengest and Horsa - also shown on another part of the horns. 

The Leader of the Heri is the Fuhrer because he is a special leader in the sense that he embodied the Teuton Fury - the Wod or Woda-Force. This is the force of Divine Madness, of Intoxication, of 'Possession' by the God-Force. This force is linked to the ALU-ULA Force, where the IE Root *alu- means 'put under a magic spell', more precisely, as shown in the Hittite *alwanza meaning 'bewitched'. This is the possession of the god-force Woden. Woden is the Ergreifer ('one who seizes), his initiates are the Ergriffener ('one who is seized'). Sometimes he can possess a whole nation who then work through his Divine Will. Woden is the Heerfuhrer. 

One of the terms used of those who plunder and raid is 'pirate', and the 'Jolly Roger' is clearly associated with the pirates. There is perhaps no coincidence that this flag - the Skull and Crossbones - has the symbolism with an eye-patch over one eye - the Symbol of Woden.




One-Eyed God of the Heri


There is a figure called King Herla who is said to be a 'British King', and yet whose name is clearly Germanic, and can be found in relation to the following -

Herel - Middle English.

Herilo - Old High German.

Herlewald - A bishop of Glastinbury 744 CE.

Herlefrid, Herlolf - Old High German names.

The PGmc *xaril would have become the Old English herel- and thus King Herla and the 'Herlathing', the latter maybe a corruption of 'Herla-King'. This is the French 'Harlequin' who is a jester-type figure (like the Dancing Woden) and the Leader of the Wild Hunt. 

"But the Harii, savage as they are, enhance their inborn wildness, over and above the strength in which they surpass the peoples just mentioned, by device and moment: black are their shields, their bodies painted; for battles they pick the blackest nights, and by their very dreadfulness - and more: the semblance of an Army of the Dead - they produce terror. No foe can bear their strange and, so to speak, hellish aspect; for in every battle the eyes are defeated first."

Tacitus - Germania 43.

The Heri was the Germanic Mannerbund, an age-set whose young warriors were bonded into Cultic-Warrior Brotherhoods, very much as were the Vratya who were found in India, and were Aryan Brotherhoods, even though some scholars have tried to erase this, as was done by Zarathustra in Iran, where these cults were suppressed and 'demonised'. Such cults produce fear and terror in others, since they are rather more chaotic than the formal 'army'. 


Robin i' the Hood.

The English Folk-Hero, Robin Hood, seems to be a memory of one of the oldest concepts of Woden as the Archer-God or Bowman. Here he has Twelve Comrades with him, and they dwell in Sherwood Forest as a form of Mannerbund, though in this case made of adult males (and Maid Marian). This tallies with the most ancient god Rudra who is a Bow-God, and also a Wild-Hunter God. We may well find that the Norse Saga about Arrow-Odd also remembers this aspect of Woden, since he too is a Bowman. 

Odd, which is so similar to Freya's lover, Od, that this can be no coincidence, is given a prophecy by a Seeress -

The snake will spit,
venum-full will stab
sharp from the age-worn
skull of Faxi:
the serpent will strike
at the sole of your foot,
when, lord, you have lived
your allotted time.

I think I have used this before but of the wrong person, however this refers to the death of Odd who slays his horse in order to stave off the prophecy of his death. In old age he treads on the horse's head and is fatally bitten by a snake, thus showing that one cannot buck one's fate. Odd leaves his axe on a ship and thus has to make a giant club - weapon of the Mannerbund-God. He earned the nickname 'Arrow-Odd' after shooting a Giant in the eye. 

Odd, at one point, slays a bear, a characteristic of many Germanic Myths, and he is also a poet and warrior, just like Odin. However, the Arrow-Odd Saga has him as a Christian who destroys a Temple of Frey; his tale has obviously been doctored to suit the era. But overall it may well recall the earlier form of Woden as a Bow-God.

Robin Hood has twelve 'Merry Men', and the Number 12 has associations with the Mannerbund. Amongst these are 'Little John' who appears to be the giant Thunor, and Will Scarlet, whose original name was Will Scathlock, who is obviously Loki the Trickster - the name means 'Shadow-Loki'. The figure of Robin Hood, dressed in a Red Hood and Red Cloak, having but one eye, is well known in legend; his association with the Dead I have experienced in a dream of a figure with a Red Hood-Red Cloak carrying a Red Flag, and he was clearly the 'God of the Dead'. He was also associated with a boundary - the boundary between the world of the living and the world of the dead.

We can actually find a figure like Robin Hood in the Swiss hero, William Tell, whose name means 'Simpleton' or 'Fool'. The figure of Waendal (The Long Man) is that of the 'April Fool'; this is an aspect of Woden, one which rules over us through this era of history. AEgil the Archer and Or-Waendal (Arrow-Waendal) are also linked to these ideas. 

The mythical 'Robin Hood' and other 'Outlaws' who fought for English Freedom against the Normans are much the same Germanic Archetypes, and the one thing that we do know that history leaves to us is that these concepts are based upon an order called The Brotherhood which does seem to have existed around this time. 

The Horns of Gallehus.

I have covered these before so there is no need to go into them again; suffice it to say that on the second row of the Rune-Posture Horn we find a Bowman, below which, on the third row, we find a pair of Wolf-headed or Dog-headed warriors facing each other, one with a Club (Woden), the other with an Axe (Thunor). Beside these figures are the Divine Warrior-Twins, and to the left is a Man-Horse figure (centaur) which is an image featured in the Vratyas of India. Also, on the second row is a Walkyrie (Alu-Bora = Ale-Bearer) with a Drinking-Horn. Below these are other features that are linked to the Mannerbund -

  • Horse.
  • Dog.
  • Board-Game.
  • Dice.
  • 'Joker' like figure.
The frieze around the top has Posture-Runes, some of which occur only in the English Runes; there are also dog-headed figures playing a board-game (Taefl), sitting in the Peorth-Rune Posture. This is a Cultic Horn most likely used in Cultic Ritual of these Cultic-Warrior Brotherhoods. 







The Totenkult - Death Cult.



The Army of the Dead is invoked by the Cultic Rites and wearing the Death's Head Mask; these are the Daemonic-Warriors of the Dead. The mask is the grima and the by-name of Woden - Grim - tells us that he is the Masked God. These Ecstatic Warriors are in cultic union with the Dead Warriors of their Nation's past, they are the Living Dead. In a dream many years ago Woden appeared to me as a masked figure with Flaming-Red Eyes, the transformation that he undertook was from a stag, to a dog, and he first had a frog-mask (the frog transforms from a tadpole (water) to a frog (land). The Totenkult starts with Nine Members (Sacred Number 9). 

The Ahnenkult - Ancestral Cult.

The Death-Cult and the Ancestral Cult are the same, for here we speak of the Army of the Dead as the Army of the Dead Ancestors. The Ancestral God is Woden, whose rune is here the Os-Rune, the Rune of the Source. The Word was all-important to our English Forefathers, which is why they chose to use the Os-Rune as the Ancestral God, and the AEsc-Rune as the Ancestral Rune. The Word-Source and the Asa-Tree. There is a piece about the Vratya from India which clearly shows how important the god Woden is -

"You are the Vratya, the One Vratya (Ekavratya), uncreated, the Abyss of the Gods, the utmost point."

Vratya is the Primordial God from whom the Gods emanate; Vratya manifests as the Wind (Woden) and is the One Rsi (One Seer). The 'wind' is the 'breath' and is the animating principle in Nature and thus in Man. Once the breath has stopped, Death takes over. 

Woden & The Mannerbund.

Woden is the God of the Mannerbund, the Cultic-Warrior Brotherhood found all over the Indo-European world. Thunor is a Mannerbund-God, though perhaps more for the actual fighting-warrior than the leader-role. 

'The consecrated members of the Bund are immortal and are one with the Spirits of the Dead."

Wikander.

These were age-sets and the Young Man was taken from the mother at an early age to be brought up in a male-bund in which he would be 'cast' into the wilderness to fend for himself (either alone or in a pack), to hunt, to fish, to survive on one's own initiative, and to steal for his survival. This involves the Sacred Steal-Right which was sanctioned by Cultic Law. (When one is forced to become a Wolf's Head the idea that stealing is wrong cannot be anything but folly; one's survival depends on surviving at all costs.) 

This was not merely a physical trial, but was linked to Cultic-Ritual and a Warrior-Initiation -

"The essential part of the military initiation consisted of ritually transforming the young warrior into some species of predatory wild animal....(which is)...a magico-religious experience that radically changed the young warrior's mode of being. He has to transmute his humanity by an excess of aggressive and terrifying fury that made him like a raging carnivore."

Mercia Eliade.

The Young Initiate would have worn an animal skin, wolf, bear, boar, stag etc. and also a mask, or perhaps a wolf's head covering etc. The Ritual Mask was all part of the Warrior-Initiation. This type of initiation is shown in the saga of Sigmund and Sinfjotli where they become Wolf-Warriors or Wer-Wolves. 

Separation - Transmutation - Integration

The following are associated with the Germanic Mannerbund - the Cultic-Warrior Brotherhoods -

  • The Death's Head.
  • The wearing of Black Garb.
  • The Black Flag.
  • The Mask - Black Ashes/White Gypsum as 'face-paint'.
  • Masked Justice - the Vehm (originally).
  • The Daemonic-Warriors.
  • Guerilla Fighters.
  • Yule Initiations.
  • The ver sacrum - theft of cattle and abduction of women.
  • The Bow-God - Woden.
  • The Dragon-Slayer - Thunor.
  • War and Death.
  • The Wolf or Dog.
  • Ecstatic states.
  • Light and Darkness.
  • Occult Knowledge - Woden.
  • The Warrior-Poet & Sacred Speech (The Word).




The term 'pagan' is from the Latin paganus meaning 'one who dwells in an enclosed area'; the term 'heathen' is from the Germanic Tongue and means 'one who dwells in the heath'. The former refers to those who live in the village or small town, the area of civilisation and order, whereas the latter refers to those who live in the wilds, the heaths, the forests, and the mountains, the areas of the wild, outside the boundaries which are 'safe' and give a more easy living. Since they took away our freedom we are becoming Wolf's Heads.




This young age-set are the Heri, and after a period of training and education they are reintegrated into the tribe as Teuta - the adult warrior or Weihekrieger. The Mannerbund was a form of 'Germanic Youth Movement' that prepared the young man for his adult warrior-hood. There can be found a distinct difference between the adult, mature warrior who had hunting as a pastime, hunting in the hours of daylight. The young Cultic-Warriors hunted in the darkness of night using nets and snares, though stealth and deception. They were thus prepared as Guerilla Warriors which we call by the name Shadow-Warriors - Sceadu-Beorn. 

One of the prime examples we have here in these islands is the Fianna who roamed Ireland in ancient times; here we have the Fianna (Young Cultic-Warriors) and the Tuatha (the Teuta or tribe of adults). Their leader was Finn ('White') who is the Gwyn (Wyn = White) of the Welsh, the Son of Nudd, Son of Nuada, or Son of Nodens (Gloucestershire). The latter name can be rendered in the Germanic Tongue as being related to hunting and to the hunter. 

One of the features of these Cultic-Warriors is their use of the Wolf-Fury or Teuton-Fury which can be found in the figure of Beowulf where he is said to be 'distended in spirit', using the word bolgenmod which stems from the OE belg/bolg meaning 'to bulge' and 'to swell in anger'. This is the root of the name Belgae and the Fir Bolg of Ireland. The most famous figure associated with this is Cu Chulainn where he 'swelled and grew big as a bladder does when inflated...and the valiant hero towered high above the Fer Diad...' Cu Chullain was a One-Eyed Hero. In regard to this 'enlargement', before sceptics dismiss this as rubbish, I have had experience of this phenomena when I visited a Folk-Comrade - Asbeorn - many years ago in the Scottish Highlands. One evening as we chatted around the wood-fire in his living room he showed me this by appearing to grow bigger and bigger before my eyes. I have no doubt that this was a 'trick of mind' and that he had somehow made me believe that this was so, although we could see it another way in that he could have used some form of method by which the physical being was altered. Who knows - but this is possible. This, of course, is shown in Lord of the Rings when Gandalf swells in size before Bilbo.



There is also what we could call the Warrior-Fire which we can connect to Ingwe as the Fire-God. The Aryan God Rudra was clearly a counterpart to Woden as the Wild Hunter-God; he later, like Woden took on a less aggressive and terrifying aspect as Shiva. One of his by-names was Ugra which is the equivalent to Ygg and means the same - 'The Terrible One'. The AEgishelm is the Symbol of Ygg, for it si the Helm of Ygg or the Helm of The Terrible One, and this symbol can be found in India, no doubt showing the Trident of Shiva -




Helm of Ygg



Helm of Ugra


This symbol was used as an 'active protection', i.e. it was used as an attacking device rather than a passive defence. 'The best form of defence is to attack'. My point of this is that Rudra has certain connections with Agni, the Vedic Fire-God, and they both share certain features and interact together. It is thus the case that we have -

Rudra - Agni

Woden-Ingwe


This seems to verify the curious link between Woden and Ingwe; in fact these two may well be equated with the Yearly Cycle of Winter-Summer, as the Ancestral God (Woden - Winter-God) and Ingwe (Summer God). 



We approach 'Halloween' and after that the Winter Sunstead; these two dates are significant in the 'Time of the Ancestors', for it is between these dates that the English Folk dedicated themselves to their Forefathers through their Ancestral Rites. The years 1933 to 1945 were the Yule-Tide of the Great Year Cycle, the period when the Wild Hunt rode across Europe. This period was prophesied by the Babylonian Seeress - Sajaha - as the 'Time of Hope'. There would be six years of peace and six years of war, after which HOPE would be destroyed by Fire and Blood. After this the Dark Forces would take full control over the Earth. At the end of Lord of the Rings it is the Army of the Dead that take a part on the Second Battle. 




Der Wilde Jagd - HOPE




The Wild Hunt - The Man to Come


Lo! - There do I see my Father,

Lo! - There do I see my Mother, my Sisters and my Brothers,

Lo! - There do I see the Line of my People,

Back to the beginning.

Lo! - They do call to me, they bid me take my place 

In the Halls of Valhalla, where the brave may live forever.

Hail the Victorious Dead!

Hail the Glorious Dead!


The key to what I have said here is the cultic union between the young warrior and the dead heroes; this was not merely a drama acted out for the sake of it, but designed to invoke the Fallen Heroes into the body of the young warriors in a kind of 'possession' that took them completely. Thus, being 'dead', they were impervious to the steel of weapons and became 'invincible' - even if they thought this to be so. In such a state all fear was lost, and all thought of 'why' or 'because' was passed over and their actions were instinctive and rose above reason and logic.


Today we have no nation nor tribe, only a soulless Global Order made up of 'producers ' and 'consumers', at the top being a bunch of lunatics lacking common sense and logic. Some of the masses are turning into a form of 'zombies' who have no power of thinking whatever, whilst others are becoming more and more aware of what is going on, but have no firm leadership to unite to gain their freedom. It is to the latter that we look to help and to give hope to in such times; the former are the result of a dying order. The Army of the Dead is not something of the past, gone forever, for the Ancestral Spirits are still their, looking over us and guiding us, but this is a two-way thing where we have to communicate with them, and once more bring them into the land of the living.
