The Chariot of Ingwe


I am going to visit this subject again in the light of some new ideas which should help us to understand how important the Holy White Stone of Ing is to the English Folk-Nation. Also, when I first studied this I mentioned that the Ken-Rune was 'upside-down', but this may not be right since it seems that this particular rune-stave could be drawn either way. This does not change the meaning, of course, since it would merely read - Ing-Fire-Gift - having exactly the same meaning as if written Gift-Fire-Ing. Of course, the later 'Christian Cross' imposed upon it does suggest that the stone is the wrong way up, since it is doubtful that a Christian Priest would carve an 'upside-down' cross. Either way, this small fact should be noted but really seems to make no difference. 

The above runes found on Wikipedia show that the dating for the use of the Ken-Rune is between 450 CE and 550 CE, but could be dated later if the rune is the same way up as the stone stands - as late as 750 CE. But these rune-staves do show that this is some 400 - 600 years before the Normans invaded England, thus trying to infer that this to be 'Norman' is hardly logical. The local Steyning Museum told me that the stone was 'Norman'. The Church of St Andrew (which is today also named after the original Cuthman) was Saxon, but further built upon by the Normans, who have tried (no doubt) to completely erase the legend of Ing associated with the church, though somehow the name 'Cuthman' exists to link this 'Known Man' to Ingwe.

Ing was first among the East-Danes

Seen by men until he later eastwards

Went across the waves, the wagon sped behind,

Thus the Heardingas named the hero.

Old English Rune-Poem

In the legend of Cuthman we find that this 'Christian Saint' travels eastwards pushing a barrow in which his aged mother sits. No one but an idiot would actually see this as being a man pushing his mother in a barrow (some Judaeo-Christians obviously do). This is obviously exactly the same legend as that of Ingwe travelling eastwards, but Cuthman travels from Chidham to Steyning, possibly via Stane Street ('Stone Street'). What I intend to cover here is the idea that Ingwe-Cuthman uses a waen (wagon), though this would have, over a long period of time, become a 'barrow' which is not drawn but pushed. 

The Waene-Cult or Fiery-Serpent Cult appears to be more ancient than the Esen-Cults; at least that is what most historians think. One of the main features that seem to be associated with the Waene-Cult is the 'wagon' in which either a God or Goddess rides. The most famous example is that of a ritual recorded by Tacitus, in which a goddess is said to sit in a wagon and then drawn to a Sacred Pool where she is 'cleansed', and where the slaves that pull the wagon are offered up as a sacrifice to the goddess. What we are told is that the goddess is named Nerthus and that one of the tribes that worshipped here was the Anglii - the English. Another account of such a ritual, though no details are given, is that of one to 'Isis'; this would seem to be the Germanic Isais rather than the Egyptian - Greek 'Isis'. But Isis was associated with a boat and we shall see how Nerthus may also have been associated with a 'Wagon-Boat' or 'Land-Ship'. We should also recall that Isis weeps tears as she searches for the pieces of her lost husband, Osiris, just as Freya weeps as she searches for her Od. This is a trait of the Waene-Goddess it would seem. There is also yet another Germanic Goddess associated with the boat-ship, and that is Nehallenia of the Frisians.

The wagon is a typical means of travel for some of the gods and goddesses -

  • Thor has a chariot pulled by Goats.
  • Freyr has a chariot pulled by a Boar.
  • Freya has a chariot pulled by Cats.
  • Njord is called 'God of the Wagon'.
The associations here, or at least some of them, are perhaps linked to the Waen or Great Bear, since Ingwe is associated with Bootes and Arcturus. Odin is also called 'Mover of Wagons', 'Friend of Wagons', 'Protector of Wagons', and 'Ruler of the Wagin-Road'. To the Norsemen the sky itself was sometimes referred to as 'The Land of Wagons'. The ancient Aryans were known for their chariot-riding, and here in Britain chariots were used in war; since there were Germanic Tribes here this produced a continuation into later times. 

The name 'Nerthus' would naturally evolve into 'Njorth' - Nerthus = Njarthuz = Njorthus = Njorth. Njord dwelt in Noatun which is a word meaning 'ship-yard', thus his associations with the sea and waters. Ingvi-Frey had a ship called Skidbladnir which means 'assembled from pieces of thin wood'. Throughout Germania, including here in England, there are legends of a 'land-ship' being hauled around the land with a male or female figure in it. There is also the tradition of the 'May Queen' who is taken around the village in a cart or wagon, another ancient remembrance of this Waene-Cult. Then there is a legend of the 'Ship of Fools' which is a ship with wheels drawn around the land in medieval times. And we have a record of the Merovingian Kings being driven around in a cart or wagon pulled by bulls; a gold bull's head was found in the tomb of Childeric I and we know that the Merovingians descended from Meroveus when his wife was impregnated by a 'Quino-Taur' ('Five Bull'), a Beast of Neptune (the sea). Here we may find some ancient link between the Aryan Hero (Ing is said to be 'the hero') and the Great Deep, coming out of the seas. 

The Dagenham Idol is a wooden idol over 4,250 years old, and found in a bog; can we link this, and the 'Bog-Men' to these ancient Waene-Cults? The figure is one-eyed, but various figures in Norse and Irish Myth contain prefix-names 'Ing' and are one-eyed. There is also the figures found in Denmark (Ing was first seen amongst the East-Danes) which are also wooden idols from an area of bog. Then we have the Oseberg Wagon and also the Oseberg Tapestry in which is found a scene of a horned figure leading a procession of figures who accompany a cart/wagon. This is dated around 834 CE. 

Even today this very ancient tradition is upheld when the Queen, on certain functions, is driven around in a horse-drawn carriage ('carriage' sounds better than a 'cart' or 'wagon' but is the same). The body of King Rufus the Red is said to have been laid in a wagon and taken around the land before he was buried. In all of this we can see the very ancient idea of the Sacral King who is 'wed' to Sovereign (The Land). This is the Hieros Gamos or 'Sacred Marriage' of the King to the Land. 

Although we have the Ken-Rune version as shown earlier, we also have the Ken-Fusion of the Ing-Rune (shown above) on the White Stone of Ing, thus doubling the connection with 'Fire'. It was also called by the name The Firestone which has been rejected by scholars but seems nearer to the truth than they would have us believe. 

In the image above we see 'Jesus' bearing the central roof-beam, helping Cuthman to put this into place. Whoever created the above image used the Ing-Rune symbolism on the gaiters on his legs, which appears again in another image of 'Jesus' with his crook and by his sheep. The 'pillar' or 'beam' is a very ancient Aryan Heathen Symbol; both figures have a 'halo' around the head.

We have seen how Ingwe is the Son of Man and how he is associated with Bootes and Arcturus in particular, and that his name can mean The Anointed One, as does the name 'Krist'. We now seem to have a fairly accurate dating as to when this Holy Stone was carved, or at least we know that it was most likely carved between 450 CE and 750 CE, with the most likely being between 450 CE and 550 CE, which is around the time when the English were increasing their settlement here in these islands. 

The Old English Rune-Poem we have shows a later version of the 'Cen-Rune' (sixth from top, the picture is not clear), and not the version we have on the White Stone. We need here to remember that the stone was found in Sussex, at a place that has clearly been associated with this from its creation way back in time. This was in the South Saxon Mark, but has been under the influence of the West Saxons too, and this seems clear when we find that King AEthelwulf's tomb-stone stands next to it in the church. 

The 'two incised crosses' were in fact Templar Crosses and if it is true that the father of King Alfred was buried here the area must have been a very sacred place for the English. Winchester, of course, was the ancient capital of England, and even before that of the Belgae Tribes. There is a site outside Steyning, next to Bramber, which was an old Templar Castle, so they too must have seen this site as of importance on a spiritual level. The West Saxon Royal Line, through King AEthelwulf, could trace its lineage back to Sheaf-Ing, which is a strange coincidence in view of what I have just said. 

I have once mentioned that the stone itself may be associated with a 'ship' or 'boat' due to its shape. And then we have the Mayan Stela which shows a red-haired, red-bearded figure holding a 'hammer-cross' and sailing in a boat with serpents, with a White Stone in the boat. With the symbolism on the 'heads' at the side - XX-X - this fits with the White Stone symbolism perfectly. Clearly, the figure is a 'White God' such as Quetzalcoatl, Kukulkan, Viracocha and Votan. These were all associated with the Morning Star (Star of the Waene) and with the Fiery-Serpent ('Feathered Serpent').

Woden - The Left-Hand Path

Mead of Inspiration was made from Kvasir's Blood; Kvasir was created when the AEsir and Vanir made peace and sealed the pact by creating a human who was the original knowledge. Kvasir came to two dwarves, Fjalar and Galar, and these dwarves slew him and let his blood run into two crocks - Son and Bodn - and a kettle - Odroerir. There the dwarves mixed his blood with honey and brewed from this the Mead of Inspiration. The dwarves then slew a giant in an accident at sea, and then his wife, and thus Suttung the Giant seized them, took them out to sea, and chained them to a skerry covered by the tide. They begged for their lives and agreed to give Suttung the Magic Mead of Knowledge. Suttung took it home and hid it in the inner recesses of his mountain dwelling - Knit Mountain - and appointed his daughter Gunnloth as its guardian. From this tale we can see that the original owners of the mead were the Gods, and from there the dwarves stole it, and then the giants. 

Woden sets out on a quest to regain the Sacred Mead, trekking into Jotenheim to the dwelling of Suttung, Knit Mountain. There he finds nine giants cutting hay in a field. Offering to sharpen their scythes, he tricks them into a position where they slay each other, then seeking their employer, Baugi, his service to do the work of these nine giants in return for a draft of the Sacred Mead. Baugi's brother was Suttung, so although he agreed in principle it was not his to give. Woden did the work and was taken to Suttung, who bluntly refused the request. Woden then took out a hand-drill called Rati and told Baugi to bore into the mountain, which he did. Woden suspected a trick and blew into the hole; when some chips flew back at him he knew that the drill had not gone right through and he forced Baugi to finiosh the job, which he did. Shape-shifting into a Serpent, Woden flung himself into the hole and into the mountain. 

Rati is a title given to Hama (Heimdall), and it is also part of the name Rata-tosk which is the squirrel that runs up and down the World Tree. Since we find that Agni, the Vedic equivalent to Heimdall, has a similar role in regaining the lost Mead by breaking open a mountain, then we can assume that it is Hama-Heimdall who helps Woden get into the mountain. 

Whilst in the mountain Woden gets drunk, very drunk when he lay in Gunnlod's house; he also states that he was in the same condition at the 'wise Fjalar's', one of the dwarves that created the Sacred Mead by adding honey to Kvasir's Blood. It is not clear what he means by this, but it may be that he became drunk through the use of the Sacred Mead. In the Words of the High One we find this statement, which seems to bear this out -

Gunnlod sat in the Golden Seat, 

poured me precious mead:

ill-reward she had from me for that,

for her proud and passionate heart,

her brooding foreseeing spirit.

What I won from her I have well used:

I have waxed in wisdom since I came back,

bringing to Asgard Odroerir,

the Sacred Draft.

This is a most important piece of information which tells us so much about the role of Woden. The poet comments - 'Odin, I am sure, had taken the oath on the ring: who shall ever believe his word again? He swindled Suttung out of his mead and left Gunnlod to weep.' The breaking of an oath was a serious thing in Germanic society, and in doing so Woden would be deemed to be dishonourable. But we have to look more carefully at this, since in reality he did not 'swindle Suttung out of his mead' because it was not originally his, but was taken from the dwarves, who had slain Kvasir to get it. And Woden tells us why he had undertaken the quest to regain the stolen mead, so that he could wax in wisdom when bringing to Asgard the Sacred Mead. In a sense the end here justifies the means, but Woden had to work outside the law to regain it.

Woden tells us - 'The fraud-got mead has profited me well and the wise-man lacks nothing now that Odroerir is come up into the midst of men on earth.' This is clearly the reason why Woden undertook such a dangerous quest, in order to gain the Mead of Inspiration for men on Middle-Earth. In doing so Gunnlod had obviously fallen in love with Woden, and he deceived her; this seems clear since she aided his escape from Sutting when Woden shape-shifted into an Eagle. 

This was a Tantric Love Rite in which Woden transforms from a Serpent (Earth-Bound) into an Eagle (Heaven - Divine). This is akin to eastern Tantra which results in the rising of the Fire-Serpent which produces a kind of 'nectar' which floods the body, as found in so many accounts of this type of work. Hence the Golden Seat that Gunnlod sits in, and the Sacred Mead which is the Nectar of the Gods. Here the work of Hama-Heimdall (Agni) is also made clear, since he is the Fiery-Serpent. 

Woden here works outside of the norms of the society, he is thus, in a sense, an 'outlaw', working outside the laws of his society. But he has good reason to do so since the end result is that mankind has the Sacred Mead of Inspiration which is needed to defend themselves against the Giants. Not only does he trick Gunnlod and steal back the mead from Suttung, but he also acts as a trickster-figure in slaying the nine giant-workers, using cunning rather than the usual warrior way. 

In the last post I mentioned that Tiw had to sacrifice his hand in order to balance the trickery of the gods in binding Fenrir; again, trickery, deceit and magic had to be used in order to fend off the destruction of the Gods, even though this had to come in the end when Fenris broke loose again. In many cases it is Loki the Trickster who uses his wits to aid the gods, mostly when the gods force him to do so after his cunning gets them into trouble. Unlike Loki's tricks and mischief, Woden uses his trickery, cunning and magic to aid the Gods and Men by gaining knowledge and wisdom which holds them in stead for Ragnarok. 

In The Lord of the Rings we find a similar case in the way that the Battle of Pellinor Fields is won; this would have been lost had it been fought as it 'should' have been. However, Aragorn in a sense 'cheats' by raising the Army of the Dead who are 'oath-breakers' and not the usual warrior-type used in warfare. In this way Aragorn acts as the Wild Hunter-God, the Leader of the Army of the Dead, and in the book it clearly states that they bore the Black Banner which is symbolic of this phenomena. We have here yet another case where the 'norm' is not adhered to in order to achieve the end result needed.

Another case can be found in the Legend of Sigurd who rather than sticking by the Warrior Code slays the dragon Fafnir through trickery, in this case aided by Woden who shows him how to do so. Sigurd then cooks the heart of the dragon, eating the heart and drinking the blood, thus attaining an enlightened state of consciousness. He then slays Regin (his mentor) who represents sovereignty (Regin mean 'sovereign') and fecundity (Regin is a blacksmith). Sigurd here breaks the sacred rules of society in order to achieve his aims. 

The Archetypal Hero violates the rules of each caste of society -

  • Disobeys a ruler or a priest.
  • Uses trickery to defeat and opponent.
  • Acts out of lust or deceit against a producer.
This is clearly seen as an act of disobedience by a Magician-Priest-Sovereign, a Warrior-Hero, and a Producer - the three Aryan Castes. The hero has to take on much of the 'evil' of his opponent in order to defeat him. The more dangerous an opponent the more powerful the hero must become. This can then be projected onto the 'Initiation Rite' at whatever level we look at it -

Separation - Breaks the rules of society, is cast outside the bounds of society, working alone or in small groups.

Transformation - The hero becomes something 'different' or 'other'; he is forced by circumstances to fend for himself, to become a 'lone wolf', to look inside himself to 'find himself'. This is done through his having to face the unknown, to face his own inner fears, to face and overcome fear. To do so he has to have something to fear, to have something else induce that fear.

Reintegration - The hero returns as something new, a 'New Man'; in doing so he thus transforms the Folk as a group. As Ouspensky says - 'Changes in the life of the many, if they must come at all, will come as a result of inner changes in the few.'

'My insight: all the forces and drives by virtue of which life and growth exist lie under the ban of morality: morality as the instinct to deny life. One must destroy morality if one is to liberate life'. 

Friedrich Nietzsche.

This is why Nietzsche taught the 'transvaluation of values', that Judaeo-Christian morality was anti-life and had to be transformed into something positive. Where our problem lies today is that the Left-Hand Path is automatically assumed to be linked to 'Satanism' - which it should not be. The aim is not to break the rules for the sake of breaking the rules, not to try to be 'naughty' as some young people do when they take up 'Satanism'. Satan is Shaitan is Shaddein, and is the enemy of the Gods and Men - the Great Liar and Deceiver. The Hero breaks all the rules not for the sake of breaking the rules, but to gain some form of knowledge or regain some form of means to gain knowledge, and this is done for the Gods and Folk in order that they can combat the Forces of Darkness - the Shaitanic Forces if you like. 

Nietzsche is here not speaking of the ethics and morals needed to hold together an ordered and harmonious society, but the Judaeo-Christian 'morality' that is clearly anti-life. This is clear from their view of the sexual act which was heavily suppressed, and which broke loose at a later time with the so-called 'Sexual Revolution'. Prior to World War II the mystics and magicians in Germany tried to put things right by placing the sexual act where it should be as the Creative Act, a healthy creation within the Folk. The so-called 'Sexual Revolution' was a deliberate act to cause a degeneration in the European Youth and when linked to the drug-cults which were part of this it helped to bring into place the drug and alcohol-ridden society that we have today - ripe for mind-control. For a clear indication of how to combat the Judaeo-Christian 'morality' one must look to the mystics and magicians in Germany who clearly understood the problem. 

During the past twelve months we have been forced into a situation where we have no alternative than to become 'outlaws' in our own land and society, which is gradually pushing us out because we refuse to conform to rules and regulations that we clearly see as destructive towards our Folk. We have been going through the process of a 'Mass-Initiation' designed to create further control over our lives, but which we can clearly use to aid our struggle for freedom. The solution to the problem lies in the cause of the problem. 

In the last post I mentioned the idea of extending the idea of Byron's 'Cultured Thug' (put forward by Jonathon Bowden) into the threefold Divine Order -

The Thinker (Head).

The Warrior (Arms).

The Producer - Virility-Fertility (The Groin).

Here we have Woden- Thunor - Ingwe-Frey. But we also have the 'Triple-Godhead' of Woden (Inspiration), Willa (The Will) and Weoh (The Sacred). The latter is the Three-Fold Gods of Creation, the gods that created Man from Askr and Embla. Indeed, these concepts can also be equated with our own technique of the Three Cauldrons - the ALU-ULA Formula.

Odroerir - Inspiration (Head Centre).

Son - Solar Action - Solar Warrior (Solar Plexus Centre).

Bodn - Earth & Fertility (Hara Centre). 

Going further into this we get -

Woden - The Master of Wod or Master of Inspiration & Ecstatic Fury.

Willa - The Will. The conscious application of a desired plan, arrived at consciously.

Weoh - The Sacred. The spirit of separation in an independent sacred place, outside time and space. 

The Aryan Hero (The Vira) must also heal the 'Broken Ego', a concept inherent in the act where the hero pulls the Sword from the Tree, or the Sword from the Stone. The Nyd-Rune thus becomes the Is-Rune - the 'Broken I' is thus healed within the Aryan Hero. This is also the symbolism of the 'Broken Sword' (N-G) which is reforged (NG), and which the Aryan Hero uses to 'slay the dragon', and thus regain the Gold Hoard (Solar Knowledge and Wisdom). In doing so the Aryan Hero has to violate the 'rules of society'.

If Miguel Serrano is right in that the Widdershins Swastika (anti-clockwise form as above) shows a movement against time, the backwards movement towards the Source and the Origins then this form also symbolises the Left-Hand Path which uses a reversal of the norm in order to achieve higher states of consciousness. It is under the Widdershins Swastika that the Woden-Initiate must work, because this is the Way of the Shadow-Warrior.

Dumezil & The Three Functions

Georges Dumezil went deeply into the idea of the threefold nature of Indo-European Society, and I would here like to look at his ideas in the hope that perhaps shed light on how we can build a movement based upon the Divine Order of the Gods, and how this is relevant to the Eternal Struggle against the Forces of Darkness and Chaos. The following is a sketch of his ideas -

First Function - Sovereignty.

This is made up of the rulers, the priests, and the legal specialists. This level is broken into -

The Magical - the Magician-Creator rules by his creative violence.

The Judicial - The God of Justice rules by his organising wisdom. 

Second Function - The Warrior-Hero.

This function is that of the Warrior-Caste whose role it is to have the strength to put the decisions of the ruling caste into action. 

Third Function - The Generative.

These are the healers, the youth, of luxury and prosperity, of peace and plenty, of virility and fertility.

  • The Farmer-Provider.
  • The Craftsman.
  • Fertility, abundance & peace.

The First Function is that of command (The Head).

The Second Function is that of the fighters that defend the community (The Arms).

The Third Function is that of productive work and fertility (The Groin).

Through this three-fold system the harmony of the Cosmos and Society is upheld; here is where the Counter-Initiation have used the idea of 'equality' to break down this Divine Order, thus creating disharmony, confusion, disorder and chaos. Hence the importance of such a Divine Order to us today, without which order and harmony cannot return and the Heildom cannot be created.

Now let us look at the Germanic Gods and how they fit these roles, always recognising that this is not 'black and white' and there are 'grey' areas where their roles overlap.

First Function - Woden & Tiw.

Woden is the Sovereign Magician who rules through power and wisdom, and at times uses trickery to do the necessary work. 

Tiw is the God of Justice and the heroic legal expert; the God of the Thing. Tiw saves the Gods from the Fenris Wolf, and in doing so he makes legal that which is clearly not legal. The Fenris Wolf cannot be bound with the usual means, and the gods resort to trickery and magic to do so, thus making this 'illegal' in a sense. Tiw's sacrifice of a hand makes this a 'legal' act. 

We can see these roles in another way, for Woden sacrifices an eye which symbolises his role as 'The Head' (seat of intelligence), whereas Tiw sacrifices a hand, this being symbolic of justice (The Hand of Justice). 

Woden is a God of the Left-Hand Path since there are occasions where we see him working outside the bounds of society's 'norm', even acting illegally and immorally at times. Some scholars have thus seen him as an 'alien' god but this is certainly not so; he works thus in a sense of the 'end justifying the means' since when working with a devious enemy (The Dark Joten) there is no other way that they can be countered but at their own level. There is no doubt that such a god would never have been needed in the Golden Age, but in our Age of Darkness this has to be the 'High God' because his role is the counter-opposite to the Dark Forces, and he works at a much more 'sinister' level. But, he is balanced by the god Tiw, who acts at the legal level. 

Second Function - Thunor.

Thunor is the 'Defender of the Gods' and his role is to smash the tactics of the Joten and Thursar through his might and main. He fights at a physical level whereas Woden incites the ecstatic battle-fury through his magic. Tiw is also associated with battle, since he decides the time, place and manner of battle; law can be used to gain victory over an opponent or on war. We can see the role in Arjuna who is the physical fighter who is stirred on by the god Krishna, even though he does not wish to fight against his own kin. What is important to realise is that our forefathers saw the 'inner conflict' involved here, that some battles between kinfolk were incited and stirred by these Dark Forces. We can see this clearly in World War II. War was seen to be more of a 'spiritual conflict' and a 'hidden current' lay behind this as well as the outer physical conflict.

Third Function - Ingwe-Frey.

This is that of peace and plenty, of abundance of crops, of virility and fertility. But once more we have to recognise that war and fertility go hand in hand, because in times of war there needs to be an increase in births in order to replace the fallen heroes in battle. Every army would have both trained warriors from the Second Function with the vast number coming from the Third Function who would also bear arms in war. At all times a strong peasant-caste would ensure the defence of a nation when this was necessary. 

I think at this point it would be wise to note the difference between Ingwe and Ingwe-Frey, the latter being the 'Master of the Inga-Force'. Ingwe is the 'Fire-God' and the 'God of the Fire-Serpent', and it would seem that he was the force behind the very ancient Fiery-Serpent Cults which spread across many lands in order to aid and bring civilisation after a massive flood that created disorder and chaos across the world. These 'White Gods' that appeared came as peaceful, wise and creative men who gave their help to others. 

These three functions work in harmony to create order and stability, whether this be to the Cosmos, the Earth, or to any given society; this extends to that of any group or movement, since if we are to counter the Forces of Chaos and Destruction we need to recreate this Divine Order in microcosm, as best that we can in these times. But, there is also the need to recreate such a Divine Order within ourselves. The idea put forward by Jonathon Bowden of the 'Cultured Thug' can be taken even further, and beyond the 'Warrior-Thinker' (which unites the first two functions) to a stage when the New Man unites all three functions within himself

Woden-Tiw - The balance of the sovereign-magician with that of justice and that which is right. The willingness to sacrifice ourselves for something higher, for Truth and Justice. 

Thunor - The Warrior-Hero who fights for order and justice against the Powers of Darkness and Chaos. The gaining of strength, of might and main, of brute force that will crush everything that stands in the way of the final victory.

Ingwe-Frey - The striving for peace through victory, the virility and fertility of the Folk. The strength of hard work and toil in order to achieve what is necessary. Not enough emphasis is put upon the idea of hard work and struggle in order to achieve what we want, in order to overcome all obstacles. 

The one thing that is lacking here is the figure of Rig-Hama (Rig-Heimdall) who was the god who gave to the Folk this Divine Order. It is also true to say that the figure of Scef-Ing should come into this too, since he was the Divine Child who became Folk-King or Folk-Ruler after the Golden Age had ended. Like Agni of the Vedas he brought Sacral Kingship to the Folk. There is also the three-fold system of the Vedic-Gods -

Brahma - The Creator.

Vishnu - The Preserver.

Shiva - The Destroyer. 

Woden acts not only as the Magician-Creator but as the Destroyer in his role as the Wild Hunter-God. This is why I mentioned that things are not quite 'black and white' but that there are 'shades of grey' where the roles of certain gods overlap. Thunor certainly acts to preserve the Cosmic Order and the Divine Order, to preserve the tribe and the Folk. But Ingwe-Frey also acts to preserve the Folk, since he is the God of Fertility; and Freya has her role in this too, as that of magic and battle, just as the role of Woden has the same characteristics. But we can perhaps see in this the reason why Thunor is married to the Corn-Goddess (Sif), who is herself connected to Scef (Sheaf of Corn). Here certain roles are directly connected in the most mysterious ways. 

The New Feudal Order

Over many years our people have been warning about the futility of living in the past, especially in trying to go back to either 'Viking' times, or of going back to 'Anglo-Saxon' times. It should be clear to everyone that the 'English Awakening' failed because there were too many prominent people and groups who were trying to revive the old 'Anglo-Saxon' times in our times, at the same time totally overlooking the true nature of the threat not only to the English, but to all European Peoples, and going beyond this the many different peoples of the world. This is a global catastrophe of the highest level. We can learn from the past, and how our forefathers reacted to the threat of losing their freedom, and this seems to be the most important thing for us today. Let us look at this again.

Where did the problem lie in regard to the Normans? It was not the Normans themselves, since they were clearly 'Norsemen' and of the same blood-stock, but it lay in those who were the hidden driving-force behind them. They invaded England under the Papal Banner (Judaeo-Christianity) and were financed by the money-lenders (Global Bankers). And the system they brought with them was the Feudal System. Whereas the English up to this time had a system in which the individual owned land as a 'freeman', and worked this land for themselves, their families, and their tribes (extended families), the Normans imposed an authoritarian system which took the land away from the people, gave it to the Church and the State, the latter then having total control over the people. Rather than being able to work the land to keep their families, they had to work the land to pay 'taxes' (unknown in Germania) to the Church and State, having only what meagre food was left for themselves. This is the Feudal System.

This was not the first Feudal System to be imposed upon the peoples of Europe, since the Christian Franks had imposed this upon the Frisians much earlier, and had tried to impose this upon the Scandinavians after taking Frisia. However, the Vikings poured out of Northern Europe, effectively halting this invasion of the Northlands, and (for a time) reviving the Cult of Odin around Europe and elsewhere. That this seems to be true may be seen when we find that Denmark started to build fortifications against a Frankish invasion; they would not have done this for nothing. At this point I would like to point out that the revival of the Spirit of the Vikings would be most welcome today, since they had the strength and will (for a time) to oppose this tyranny with force and might, and things would have been different had they not done so.  

This, of course, also goes for the Spirit of the English who fought against the Norman and Breton Barons - the Church and the State - heroes like Harold Godwinsson who fought and died for his people and land, and then Robin Hood, Hereward the Wake, and other English Heroes who continued the struggle to regain their lost freedom. (We should always remember that Harold Godwinsson and Hereward the Wake were half Danish, the fusion of Angul and Dan in these lands). Robin Hood epitomised the Spirit of Woden which drove the English on to regain that freedom. Let us now look at this from a far deeper level.

As we can see in our times, the masses are led into believing that 'economics' is the major factor in driving this type of tyranny. Of course, this is a factor, since greed and envy are one of the main driving-forces behind this, but there is also a hidden factor that is invariably overlooked. If we look at The Vikings TV Series (not completely accurate) we find that the drive to acquire wealth is the motive given to the warriors to raid England. But is this the true motive? We see clearly how Ragnar Lodbrok is from the start guided by the god Odin into raiding England, and eventually setting up home in England. The first move was to sack the Christian Churches, just as the Anglo-Saxons did hundreds of years before this, so we have a clear motive for the 'hand of the Gods' in these invasions. I have often quoted the piece from Beowulf where Hengest is given the 'Hun-Sword', and it was Attila the Hun who faced and nearly broke the might of the Roman-Christian Empire. To me this is enough proof that there is a hidden hand from the Gods working behind this, or maybe we could call this the Hidden Hand of Wyrd. 

Unfortunately, far too many people were deceived into believing that 'Democracy' is the same as 'Freedom'. 'Democracy' is the rule of the 'Demos', the rule of the lowest over the highest, and it always leads to an authoritarian state, as we are seeing clearly today. Feudalism never left us, it was merely 'repackaged' in the name of Marxist Communism; and today it is being imposed upon the world in a very much stronger form. There will be no 'Utopia' as the Socialists and Communists would have us believe, because this is an illusion; what we are seeing is exactly the same Feudal System being imposed upon the world as a World State. At the top is an 'elite' made up of wealth and power, at the bottom will be a Marxist-Communist System for the masses - a huge produce-and-consume society, but no doubt scaled down greatly since - 'You will own nothing, and you will be happy' (Klaus Schwab). 'You will own nothing' because they wil, own everything, just as in a Feudal State. Nothing has changed, we are in the same position today as the English were when the Normans invaded.

I say 'nothing has changed' but this is not strictly true, since when the Normans invaded the English did not throw down their weapons and give up altogether, as most of the English have done today. 'We are the 99%' - not quite true since a good majority of the English, as soon as there was a local vote, rushed to the polling stations to vote for a 'conservative' party that had just taken their freedom away! Any 'Englishman' who tells the old 'French Gun' joke should take a good look at themselves today! We must not be led into thinking that we are stronger than we are, because what counts is not the numbers but the strength of Will of a small opposition. As Alexandra the Great once stated - 'I am not afraid of an army of lions led by a sheep, what I am afraid of is an army of sheep led by a lion'. 

When we look at the world today we are still being led to believe that this whole thing is based upon 'economics', and thus overlooking some of the most important moves that have yet to be made, one of these being a 'World Religion'. Yes, we could look at Covid-1984 as a 'cult' or 'religion', just as in a certain sense Marxist-Communism was led by a religious fervour. But this is not put out as such, and the main protagonists are economists - Klaus Schwab and Bill Gates being the two pushed mostly - 'The Beast' and the 'False Prophet'. Behind this we have the Hidden Occult, and going beyond this another and even more secret level. Like 'Star Wars' we have the 'outer' war being waged between 'The Empire' and the 'Resistance', and behind 'The Empire' being 'The Emperor' - a very Dark Sorcerer. This is the structure I believe that we should recognise because there are secret ways by which these people can attack us - at psychic and spiritual levels. We must not be led into thinking that this is being fought at an 'economic' level alone, there is a far deeper war going on.

There is an example from the past which we can learn from, and that is the example of Arminius the Cheruscan, the Germanic Leader who led the revolt against the Roman Legions of Varus, and brutally crushed these legions at the Teutoburger Wald in 9 CE. Arminius united the warring Germanic Tribes against a common enemy, and in doing so these tribes were able to utterly route the Roman Legions. However, as soon as this threat was over the tribes went back to their warring factions again, refusing to make Arminius their leader, since it was not their way to have one authoritarian leader except in times of war. Fair enough, this was the Germanic way, but in this case this failed the Germans in that the Roman threat did not end with this epic battle, and they took more and more power, although never conquering the Germanic Tribes fully. Sometimes it is necessary to drop what is deemed to be 'cultural' in times of dire crisis, and this was one of them. It is sometimes necessary for everyone to fall behind a good leader and to accept a role as subordinate, even when one has a high position in society. 

This is in fact why our enemies foisted 'Democracy' upon the masses, together with 'equality' and 'fraternity', whilst at the same time never adopting such a crude system themselves. They created a strict hierarchical system or 'Pyramid System' where they were at the top and the masses at the bottom. We can see this in Freemasonry and its strict grade-system, where the 33% Freemason is said to be of the 'Illuminati' (Hidden Elite). The 'Common Purpose' seems to be more of a 'people's' secret society, working on the very same principles, where those who were seen as fit to rule within the 'New World Order' were chosen to do so. There is no other explanation for how at one swift move the global corporations became 'woke' (not a word I like but this is well known), even though they were supposed to be 'capitalists' - the 'enemy of the people'. And at every level they were ready to switch into a higher gear in the destruction of our Folk through subtle advertising promotions and other sinister means. This could never have happened overnight, and had to be a process of decades of secret infiltration into every level of society - 'Cultural Marxism' is a term used for this, but this rather confused the issue than made it clear what the aim was. 

So what we are seeing is not a new thing, but a tried and tested method of control over people over thousands of years, probably going way back into the most ancient times. We are at the end of 'Western Civilisation' and can thus expect this type of thing to happen, as it has done again and again in past civilisations, not only the decay and decadence, but also the 'multi-culturalism' which has always featured in the fall of empires. Julius Evola noted that this did not just 'happen', it was preceded by a spiritual decay which created a situation in which these forces of subversion could work, causing the eventual decay and death of a given empire. Evola was one of those people who could see the 'hidden current' that worked behind what seemed to be material and economic forces, and we too must recognise this if we are to counter these forces. That is our role as a religion, to awaken our Folk to these 'hidden forces' and to create a new Folk-Religion that will counter these forces and pave the way for the Coming Man.

Recently I have been working on a post on the subject of Woden and how this crisis should be used to our advantage, rather than dwelling upon the negative side of these times. Woden was an entirely different figure than many scholars would have us believe, and the way he worked was entirely different, and it is important that we use the means that Woden used to counter the Dark Forces, because the means he used were often not 'conventional', and in doing so he broke many of the 'rules'. He has often been criticised for this by scholars, but in his case the 'end justifies the means', even if at first glance we try to reject such a concept. 

The individual heroes of our Folk - Arminius, Robin Hood, Hereward the Wake, and other 'Outlaws' should be held up as examples for our Folk at this time, since it is the great heroes who resisted oppression who we look to for a way out of this disorder and chaos. 'Order out of Chaos' is a Masonic saying, one which clearly shows the methods they are using today; they create 'chaos and disorder' and the masses cry out for 'order and stability', and in doing so accept the loss of more and more freedom, giving control over to those who had created this situation in the first place. This is a very clever ploy, and one which has clearly worked over and over again for them - but there will come a time when even such a clever plan can backfire on those responsible. There are stronger powers that await their time to manifest on Earth to awaken the Folk to the Final Battle. The Einheriar have been preparing for this in Valhalla, hence the importance of the Viking era because this produced a dearth of great Aryan Heroes to fill the Halls of Valhalla.

Covid-Vaccine & Animal Testing

One of the strange things in regard to the Covid-Vaccines is that there has been little opposition from Animal Rights Groups, especially since these vaccines have been tested on animals, and such tests on vaccines have been done for a very long time. 

'Animals are used in lots of different ways in the creation of the vaccines. Studies in mice, ferrets and primates showed that the vaccines were likely to work, and other animal tests showed the finished products were safe....'

Understanding Animal Research.

This causes a problem no doubt for vegans and vegetarians and in the Plant Based News we find -

'The Vegan Society added that in the 'unlikely event' that the vaccine is made mandatory a vegan would be able to request an exemption based on their beliefs.'

But they do not stand by their convictions -

'However, we would like to make it clear that The Vegan Society encourages vegans to look after their health and that of others, in order to continue to be effective advocates for veganism and other animals.'

There is opposition to animal testing, but when it comes to their own health this does not come into the question, hardly standing by one's principles. The problem lies here in that vaccines are seen as the be-all and end-all of stopping the spread of virus and bacteria infections, whereas the main thing should be to ensure that the immune system is strong enough to fight off infections. 

This is where I see the problem with all of this, and that is that Folkish Wodenism must recognise that plants as well as animals do have a form of consciousness, and are living, breathing beings just as animals and man. It has been recognised that plants respond to being cared for and treated with respect, and that they grow better for it. This is the secret of the 'Green Fingers' attributed to some people, which is in fact nothing more than the way in which some people treat their growing plants. If we accept this, as our forefathers did, then we should see all life as sacred. That is not to say one does not take life, which is all a part of the birth-life-death-rebirth cycle, but that when doing so it must be done with respect, whether that is a human being, an animal, a tree, or any other form of plant-life. 

Just because animal testing has been done in the production of vaccines for many many decades does not mean that it is right. But it would seem that this area has been completely overlooked by the 'Animal Rights Movement' who have concentrated on other sides of animal mistreatment. Any mistreatment of animals is wrong, and here we have to emphasise that this is also true of plant-life in food production. Where things go wrong is in basing all of this on 'rights' and thus trying to find some form of meaning for the term in regard to man and to animals - plants being left out, of course. This is not the point, what is the point is that 'rights' are a modern invention that replaces the true approach - duty and responsibility

We can see clearly in the Global Agenda as to how their aim is to stop the eating of meat, or at least for now to make it a 'luxury'. They can only do this by producing more and more plant-based 'fake meat' (which is already produced now) and the means to do this in such quantities would no doubt involve Genetically Modified Plant-Food. This is why vast areas of land around the world are being bought up by Global Corporations, so as to completely control the food supply. This move would eventually need to stop hunting and fishing too, since these would mean a freedom to catch one's own food. This would also prove a problem in that human food waste is used for household pets, so where would their food come from? Oops! I forgot, they wish to get rid of these too! 

If you take a look at some old buildings around the country, in ancient times, and even up to later times, some animals were kept in a part of the household dwelling. I had a friend and Odinist Comrade in the Scottish Highlands whose old Blacksmith's Cottage once had a section fo the cows and other animals that roamed around the household. This is how close the Germanic Folk were the their animals - but they were also close to their plants too, since their survival depended upon it. 

Where the problem lies is in Judaeo-Christianity and the other Abrahamic Religions which see mankind as the centre and dominant species of the Earth - to them the world is 'Man-Centred'. To Folkish Wodenists this is the polar-opposite to what we believe, since we see God-in-Nature - God-in-the-Blood which makes all life sacred and there is no difference between man, animals and plants except the degree of consciousness that each different species has in its essence and form. Seeing the world as 'man-centred' and that 'God' is separate and 'above' (in 'heaven') has caused so much misery and death upon the Earth, and has completely cut off the majority of human-kind from Nature and the Natural Order. 

Finally, rather than follow the path of some who are continually giving out false propaganda about Covid-19, which only serves to help those pushing this agenda by making them look stupid, there is a clear case for a backlash against the Covid-19 Vaccines on the basis of their being used in animal testing. There is enough false information from The System without taking notice of more and more outlandish claims that have no substantiation - we need to stick to what is understandable and true, and then the people may start to listen. 

"It is better to die with honour than to live with shame.' - Maybe we can gleam some truth from this, and stick to our principles no matter what.

White Dragon - Symbol of English Resistance


White Dragon of the English

In the late 1980s the White Dragon Kindred revived the symbol of the White Dragon as the Symbol of English Resistance. The White Dragon was the polar-opposite to the Red Dragon of Rome, the latter being the symbol of the oppression of the Germanic Folk through the Roman Empire and through Judaeo-Christianity which permeated the Roman Empire and spread throughout Europe. The White Dragon Kindred was absorbed into Woden's Folk which took over the role of awakening the English Folk through the symbolism of the White Dragon which is symbolic of the English Folk and their Divine Ancestor - Ingwe

Since this revival over 30-odd years ago the White Dragon has taken on a life of its own; the symbol has become 'alive' in itself and is now used by various groups and individuals, and is sold in various outlets not only here in England but also in other countries. The first depiction of the White Dragon was drawn for us by a Scottish lass who was a dedicated Odinist and as part of Odinism this symbol, from the start, represented the Heathen English and in particular Folkish Wodenism. The flag has even flown over Battle Abbey in Sussex, despite attempts by English Heritage to stop English Patriots from honouring Harold Godwinsson at the site where he was said to be buried. The flag flies amongst the enemies of the English People. 

Woden's Folk was not the first Wodenist Group here in England, but we were the first to create a Folkish Movement and a new Folkish Religion based upon the essence of the Ur-Religion but in a new form suited to the era in which we are living in today. The Woden Folk-Religion is in its infancy as yet, but it has taken hold in many parts of England and in areas where our Folk have settled over time. The Woden Folk-Community is the exoteric arm of Folkish Wodenism, and this not strictly speaking an 'organisation' but is something that grows organically from the seeds that have been sown in the past decades. There is no centralised organisation but there are groups and individuals that work for the same cause through the same struggle for freedom. 

The Ley-Lines said to criss-cross the land are sometimes called Dragon Lines and the Dragon-Pulse is the force that crosses our land. It is clear that the White Dragon pulsates through the Land of England, and its 'awakening' has come 500 years after the defeat by the Red Dragon - the defeat of Richard III by Henry Tudor. Richard III fought under the White Boar, the White Rose of Albion and the Cross of Fro-Ing whilst Henry Tudor fought under the Red Dragon and Red Rose. This was in 1485, and the revival of the White Dragon some 500 years later came exactly on time. It is no coincidence that the 'Great Red Dragon' of Revelation is the 'Dragon of Shaitan'. 

The Eternal Conflict between the Island Dragons has been mentioned by Gildas the Monk and others, and this is not something that has happened in the past, but is an ongoing Eternal Battle between the White Dragon (Germania) and the Red Dragon (Shaitanic Dark Forces). These islands are the centre of the Eternal Conflict and will be the hub of the 'Final Conflict'. This is the Unshaped Isle mentioned in the Norse Eddas, the place where the Last Avatar will arise to lead the Forces of Light in their destruction of the Forces of Darkness.

"And there appeared another wonder in heaven: and behold a Great Red Dragon, having seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns upon his heads....

....and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born..."

Revelation 12:3-4.

There are events unfolding that nothing can stop; the Web of Wyrd is woven by the three Sisters of Wyrd. Everything that is happening must happen, and though it may seem to be overwhelming, and that we fight against overwhelming odds, this is nothing less that what precedes what we have been preparing for - the coming of the Last Avatar. For the Avatar to appear, and for Hope to be kindled anew, these events must happen, they are inevitable. The concept of RAGNAROK and KORAN-GAR (Spear of the Koran) was the 'trigger' for all of this to happen, the foreknowledge of what was coming.The 'War in Heaven' that forced the Dark Powers to unleash their forces on Earth, because they know they have little time left, and they know that there is a far mightier force than they that will manifest itself here on Earth. Their pride will be their fall.

The symbolism of the dragon itself is of the greatest importance, since the original form of this is a Winged Coiled Serpent which in itself links to the meanings of the root-forms of the word 'dragon' -

'Dra' - To twist, to coil, to turn, to wind.

'Gon/Gan' (Kan) - Fire, Serpent, Fire-Serpent, Kingship, Kinship, Knowledge and Wisdom. 

The symbol of a coil has always been connected to the idea of communication between two worlds or two states of being - two dimensions if you like. This symbol, when whirled around, appears to show a 'tunnel', which is the entrance to another world. This has been seen by numerous individuals who have had 'after-death-experiences' or 'out-of-body-experiences'. Symbols can appear from another world and manifest here in Midgard; they then take upon themselves a life of their own. This is the power of the White Dragon; its ultimate power lies not here but in a Higher World. 

Too much is written of the evil side of the serpent symbolism; there is an evil side but this is just one side of this ancient symbolism. Of late I have been trying to put the case for the positive side, its links to our own Ingwe, and also to our National Symbol - the White Dragon. It is interesting to note the root meaning of the word 'dragon', which stems from the IE Root *derk- which means 'to see'. This root becomes *drk-on- from which we get the Greek drakon meaning 'serpent' or 'dragon'. Here again we find the subtle inference of the evil side in that this is taken to mean the 'dragon with the Evil Eye'. But the idea of 'to see' and 'seeing' would refer to the 'seers', the ancient Angiras Rishis or 'Seven Sages' and not to anything evil in essence. 

The ancient Fiery-Serpents would have been the original 'seers', those whose knowledge came from direct 'seeing' and 'hearing', and not from the same process of learning as we find in the 'academics', nor the earlier 'priests'. These were the Shining Ones and in Tolkien's works we find them as the Elves, and we find them inter-mating with humans, thus creating those of 'half-elven' stock. It was these people who built the ancient High Civilisation of Numenor (Atalante), and from which Aragorn descended. The High Kings always had supernatural powers over and above the rest of mankind. 

The Ing-Rune is the DNA Spiral which is also a glyph of Twin-Serpents; since Ingwe is the Fiery-Serpent this represents the Igneous Blood which is the secret held within the Blood Memory of the Folk. It is clear that our enemies are hell-bent upon destroying any vestige of memory of the Fiery-Serpent and the Secret of the Sacred Blood. The problem over this seems to lie in the distortions that are banded around about such concepts as the Annunaki and the ideas of 'genetic manipulation' which may well have some foundation in fact, but which have come down to us in a kind of mist. 

Genetics is neutral and could be used to enhance a people, to create a more healthy people, and to aid the evolution of a people. But it can also be used for the polar-opposite, to create a race of slaves; maybe this was the aim in ancient times of certain people, perhaps guided by the same Dark Forces that control the world today. The idea that comes through a section of the Occult in regard to the 'World Mind' - which I have mentioned before - has this as its aim, as do the ideas in Huxley's Brave New World. It is not that well known that one of the leading figures who has been driving the 'vaccine' propaganda here in England - Matt Hancock - openly claimed (at the 2019 Davos WEF) that he was involved in Genomics England, 'genomics' being the study of the human genes, and the manipulation of genes. Such people are more than 'politicians' and that they are is merely to further a far more sinister agenda. 

The White Dragon is thus far more important than merely a 'national symbol' because it is symbolic of our Divine Ancestor and also of the Sacred Blood and our connection to the Elves or 'Shining Ones'. It will become a unifying symbol of resistance to the tyranny of the Global Elite, and as such fulfil its role as the counter-resistance to the Red Dragon of Revelation. These symbols do not arise by chance, they arise as and when they are needed to fulfil their unique role in history.

Ingwe - 'The Anointed One'

I have covered some of the meanings of the name 'Ingwe', but will need to first repeat the basic IE Roots that the name stems from -

IE Root *egni- This is the root from which we get - 'to ignite', 'ignition' and igneous, and from which the Vedic name Agni stems from. The link to the ng-root can be found in the Angiras who are connected to Agni. The root means 'fire' in its animate form.

IE Root * ang(w)hi- This root means 'snake' or 'serpent'. Also IE Root *og(w)hi-.

IE Root *eng(w)- This means 'groin' whose symbolism has always been associated with virility and fertility. 

These three basic root-words tell us that Ingwe is the Fiery-Serpent and one of the Shining Ones (Elves). Whether we class the Elves as gods or not does not really matter, and it may well be clearer to see them as 'angels' or 'messengers' - Messengers of the Gods. This class of Divine Beings are thus the link between Gods and Men. Ingwe is the 'Lord of the Elves'. We may perhaps see these ancient beings as somewhat akin to the Annunaki of the Near East, but due to the many distortions that appear over this subject I will not dwell upon it now. It is complex and hard to unravel. 

There is in fact a fourth root-word that we can connect to Ingwe, and here we can see that this one is of vital importance. The IE Root*ong(w)- means 'to anoint', which is what the term 'Krist' means in Greek - it is the equivalent to the title The Anointed One. The word 'Krist' actually stems from the IE Root *ghrei- which means 'to rub', the same meaning as 'to anoint'. Thus, one section of the Folk have used "Krist' and the other 'Ingwe'. This explains how the English came to accept the Krist so easily, since he was already connected to them as a Folk. 

It is said that, in the sacred language, the Hawk or Eagle means a 'Solar-Spirit', whereas the Fish means 'The First Messenger'. We have various figures of the Apkallu who appears a fish-like, Oannes being the best known. Hence 'The Fish' as symbolic of the Solar-Krist, who is 'The First Messenger'. Perhaps this is why the Norwegian Rune-Poem says that 'Krist shaped the heavens in former times'. 

Ingwe is also the Son of Man(nus) and his name means 'Son of...' or 'Offspring of...' The Solar-Krist is said to be the 'offspring of David and the bright and Morning Star' - the Alpha and Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. This is a title used in ancient times of many different personages, or rather of the one true archetype behind these figures. He is actually described as Bootes in Revelation 14:14 -

'...upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of Man, having on his head a golden crown and in his hand a sharp sickle...'

The Golden Crown is the 'Northern Crown' or Corona Borealis which is just to the left of the, and as Hamasson pointed out once it is more like a 'fallen crown' being upside-down. Bootes is also - 'The Coming One'. In Bootes is Arcturus, from which we get the archetype of the Hyperborean 'King Arctor', and these seven stars of the Northern Crown feature in the Flag of Gondor -

Here the crown is back on the head of the Rightful King, where it belongs and where it was before it was 'toppled' (see 'The Tower' Tarot Card). It seems that the ancient greeks once called the Constellation of Bootes by the name Lycaon or 'The Wolf' whose name means 'Light of On' ('Light of the Sun'). Ingwe is the Crowned and Conquering Son in the form of Wid-Ar the Avenger; this is a complex subject because Wid-Ar is the Son of Woden, but there are hidden links. 

The Gift of Ing is Fire; here we need to look once more at Agni and especially the birth of Agni. I have quoted the following a few times but will do so again, to underline a very important point connected with the arguments above -

'Agni (The Fire) is the son incarnate of Savitri (Heavenly Father) conceived and born of the Virgin Maia and he had the carpenter Twasti (Maker of the Swastika) as his earthly father. In the cave of the One of Two Sticks, which has the name 'The Mother', lives the Goddess Maia, the embodiment of Creative Powers, and gives birth to the Son under the influence of Vayu (The Spirit), the breeze of the wind, without which the fire cannot be lit....

The first spark that came from the Cave of the Sacrum of Maia, by turning the Fire-Twirl Pramantha (The Swastika) represents the birth of Agni. This spark is called 'The Child'.'

This passage relating to the birth of Agni clearly parallels the birth of the Solar-Krist -

  • Agni is 'The Son' of the 'Heavenly Father'.
  • He is born of the Virgin Maia.
  • His father was a carpenter, but here in the sense of the Wooden Swastika or 'Fire-Twirl' which, when spun around, created the Divine Fire at the centre of its axle. (This was an ancient means to create the Need-Fire.)
  • The 'Two Sticks' are the means of creating the Need-Fire, another version of using the Swastika or 'Fire-Twirl'. 
  • In order that 'The Son' may be born it is necessary for the movement of air (Vayu = Spirit) to take place; this is the 'Holy Spirit' and Vayu is the Vedic version of Woden. Woden's role forms part of the Birth of Agni (Ingwe). 
  • The first spark that comes from the 'Cave of the Sacrum' (axle of the Fire-Twirl) is called 'The Child'.

The Holy Symbol of Ingwe

The turning of the Fire-Wheel or Fire-Twirl gives birth to 'The Son' or 'The Divine Child', who is born at the centre of the Fire-Twirl. He is born of the 'Virgin Mother' since she alone can bring forth the 'Divine Child'. 

The Holy Symbol of Ingwe

In the Vedas Agni is described as the supreme and original Angiras, and there are Seven Angiras Rishis who are the Powers of Agni. The Divine Flame kindled by Agni (The Sacrifice) supplies to Indra the lightning-bolt or 'heavenly-stone' by which he destroys the Powers of Darkness. Agni is sometimes called Agni Angiras so we have the root of Ingwe - ng - connected directly to Agni. There are two ideas within Agni Angiras - Knowledge & Action. This is thus the root of the figure of Ingwe, whom we should emulate in order to make ourselves more effective against the Powers of Darkness. 

Agni and the Angiras have the Divine Word - the Satya Mantra - which makes the 'lost Sun to rise in the heavens' (Sri Aurobindo) and bring the Dawn to birth. This is the 'Word of the Illumination' also called the arka a word sometimes used of the Sun (Black Sun?). 

'And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood; and his name is called The Word of God...and out of his mouth goeth a Sharp Sword...and on his thigh written KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS...'

Revelation 19:13-16.

 The Holy Symbol of Ingwe

There are various weapons deemed to be the 'Gift of Ing' and we can find the Gyfu-Rune ('gift') in the Chi-Rho which itself has been said to be an ancient Sumerian Symbol for 'The Shining Ones' (said to be from around 2,500 BCE from Sumer). The symbol has been said by Madam Blavatsky to represent the Skull and Crossbones. It is the Gyfu-Rune and the Wyn-Rune, as we can see in the above glyph. In this the Wyn-Rune, which has the usual meaning 'joy' could well represent the same idea of 'bliss' that we find in the Vedas; the term 'bliss' being given to the highest state of consciousness. This would explain the symbol as used for the Solar-Krist, just as the 'halo' represents both 'enlightenment' and the 'Shining One'. 

In regard to the connection between Ingus (I'll use this form to show the similarity) to AEngus there are some very strange 'coincidences' connected to these two. I think the best way to do this is through 'bullets' to show the points which are important more clearly -

  • AEngus is of the Tuatha de Danaan who some scholars have tried to link to the Danes, no doubt through the similarity of the names Danaan and Dan. 
  • Angul and Dan are brothers according to the Norse Myths.
  • The Myth of AEngus is very similar to that of Ingvi-Frey of Norse Mythology.
  • The Irish tale of The Destruction of De Derga's Hostel is a direct parallel to the tales surrounding the Skylding Dynasty of Denmark.
  • In the Irish Tale the hall is burned down at Midwinter by Ingcel (a one-eyed warrior), and in the Danish Tale by Hjorvarth and Ingeld. 
  • The Irish Celts do not seem to have had the Midwinter Festival as of importance as the Germanic Folk, which brings this tale into question as to whether it originated with a Celtic Folk. 
  • The Tuatha de Danaan were clearly stated in Irish Lore to have come down from the North. 
  • The tales centred around Midwinter are clearly linked to the 'Birth of Krist' at this time of the year. This is the death of the 'Old King' and the birth of the 'New King' - the death of the 'Old Sun' and the birth of the 'New Sun'.
  • The story of Diarmund is interesting in that it centres around Newgrange, and has images related to Ingvi-Frey - the Boar (his brother under and enchantment), the Wagon, and Macc Oc (the figure who looks after Diarmund) dreams of and pursues a maiden, as does Frey dream of an pursue Gerd. 
That we find the figure of Diarmund being slain by a Boar who is his brother under enchantment links this directly with yet another Danish Tale - Hamlet. Here we seem to have now linked the Myth of Ingwe to that of The Divine Fool or The Hooded Man. The Irish name 'Macc Oc' (or 'Macc Og') means 'Son of Og', not so far from 'Son of Igg'. In the English Saga Beowulf we find that Scyld (Skyldingas) is the Son of Sheaf (Scyld Scefing) - the Son of Ingwe. 

Totem of Ingwe

In regard to the idea that the Shining Ones (Elves) were the "Messengers of the Gods' I have in an old post linked the name Ratatosk (Rata-Tusk) with the name Rati which was the auger used to bore into Knit Mountain in the myth that parallels that of Agni using a Bolt of Fire to smash into the mountain to retrieve the 'Mead of Inspiration'. Rati is thus Hama-Heimdall who has connections to Agni-Ingwe, and is the 'squirrel' that runs up and down Iggdrasil carrying messages between the Serpent and the Eagle. Rati is the 'Messenger of the Gods, just as we know that Agni is the 'Messenger of the Gods'. 

Of course, through the root-sound 'Rati' we can trace this back to the Rad/Rat Rune and thus to the various meanings of this rune. This rune is connected to the Solar-Krist as we have shown in previous posts which featured the Dream of the Rood. The rune itself shows the figure of the Solar-Krist hanging from the World Column or World Pillar. Here he hangs not for some fictitious 'sins of the people' but to gain the Knowledge of the Runes - the Hidden Knowledge. I will not go further into this idea since it is something that can go into a new post on the Ar-Kan Rune-Lag Blog. 

When we see the term 'angels' used we can now assume that this refers to the Shining Ones or 'Messengers of the Gods', and this then could apply to the 'angels' who 'opened the Seven Seals' in Revelation. The 'resurrected' Ingwe was linked to the Black Sun (Solar Eclipse of August 1999) and this heralded the Age of Ingwe, the 'Age of the Son'. We can apply this to both Ingwe and to Wid-Ar, both of whom can be called 'The Son'. The problem with our mythology, mainly Norse Mythology, is the (as Viktor Rydberg shows) fact that those who wrote these down used many names for the same gods and heroes of old. There are both a name but also various titles, which we can see clearly in the term 'Ingvi-Frey' who is either 'Son of Frey' ('Son of The Lord' - an enlightening title) or 'Lord Ingvi'. The word frea means 'lord', but as I have said in the last post this refers to a 'Loaf-Ward' - connected to the Provider-Caste, as was Ingwe. 

From my writings there seems to be a lot of confusion about the Gods and the Shining Ones, and much overlapping of roles. However, I do not see this as a problem, since I feel that we do not need to 'analyse' these Gods and Shining Ones, and that the mystique surrounding them does not need to be penetrated - if, that is, we could do so anyway. Our world today, fuelled by progressive science, feels that it knows everything, and yet we know very little about the world and the worlds. We can never know everything, nor do I think we need to know everything; from the work of various Woden Initiates we can see that these things come together from very different angles, certain individuals seeming to be meant to find certain secrets. 

Two Roman historians held that England was in ancient times shaped like a 'diamond' - like the Germanic Ing-Rune. We have seen how the Danish influence may well come into Ireland through the Tuatha de Danaan, and the Danes certainly influenced the English by the place-names scattered across the East of England and the Dane-Law. We know that both Harold Godwinsson and Hereward the Wake were half-Danish, and we even have the equivalent to the old Danish capital here in England, in Leicestershire - Leire (Lejre). Hama-Heimdall is Rig-Hama or Rik-Hama who was the god who gave the 'Divine Spark' (Fire) to Man, and created the Divine Order of the Gods - the Caste System. At the very end of the tale we find a strange reference that does not fit the text - Dan and Danp

Apart from the IE Root *ghrei- which means 'to rub' or 'to anoint', and which gives rise to 'Christ', there is another IE Root *greue- which means also 'to rub', but which has the alternative meaning 'to grind'. Here I am reminded of the Ior-Rune which seems to (at one level) represent a mill, and which is like the Haegl-Rune with the X ('Gifu') further up. 

The Letter 'X' has the shape of the Greek Letter 'Chi' which is why we get the name 'Chi-Rho'. This letter is used as the first letter of 'Christ' or 'Xrist', and the name could thus have originally been pronounced with the 'ch' being like 'loch' or the Old English sound represented by 'h'. This in itself is interesting in that the Norwegian Rune-Poem mentions Kristr only once, and that is under Hagal. In fact we find the Old English and Frisian sound hr used in this very way, as in the name Raedbad (H-Raedbad). We find two women 'grinding at the mill' in the New Testament, and Hagal is mentioned as the mentor to Helgi, who dresses as a woman at the mill. Helgi is a very similar archetypal avatar.

With what is happening at a global level, many Christians are now questioning as to why their church is going along with what they see as being the unfolding of the 'End-Times' and the control of the Satanic Powers under a 'World Government'. Some Catholics have even come out against this and consider the Pope to be part of this world conspiracy. There is even a text in the New Testament that suggests this -

'When ye therefore shall see the Abomination of Desolation, spoken of by Daniel the Prophet, stand in the Holy Place (whoso readeth, let him understand)...

Matthew 24:15.

Now, the 'Holy Place' to Christians could either be Jerusalem, or it could be Rome - the Vatican. And the 'Abomination of Desolation' - Shaitan? Certainly, this appears to fit with what is happening globally since at the time great catastrophes and wars rock the world. The gap between our own ideas and the ideas of some of the Christians is thus coming closer, though I would say that many Christians still have not recognised the true nature of their faith and its roots. I think this is perhaps due to the nature of most of the opposition to globalism which tends to revolve around 'economics' and not on the ultimate aim of a 'World Religion' made up from the Abrahamic Religions united, and with the others being fused into these by various means. But some are moving back to the Krist-Religion which was the original form based upon the old Heathen Myths of Krist. 

For those pagans and heathens who thus reject any idea of a 'Krist' at all, even though both Woden and Ingwe have much in common, the root-meaning of The Anointed One suggests that Ingwe was indeed the Archetypal Krist who is the 'Reborn Sun' who arises at the Darkest Hour - Midwinter. Here again, we have a clue as to the nature of this archetype, for the Solar-Krist is born at the Midwinter - the Twelve Nights of Yule - and dies and is 'resurrected' at Easter, in the Spring (New Dawn) of the following year. Here we gleam a clue to these mysteries which have been/are being manifested in our times. The 'spring' period is associated with the Divine Fool (April Fool) as we know, and thus to the Coming Man - Parsifal. This is why the 'Second Coming' is spoken of, since this is of the Warrior-Krist as found in Revelation. This, of course, is the Mystery of the Once and Future King, who will clearly 'come again' at some time in the future - not too far distant future if these events are anything to go by.

Woden is 'swallowed' by the Fenris Wolf, and even here we find a link to a very ancient myth, for the 'Wolf of the Fens' is linked to Grendel in Beowulf, whose name means 'to grind' - we are back to the same root as 'anoint' or 'rub'. Woden is the Midwinter Sun who is 'swallowed by the Wolf', and who is replaced by the New Sun - Wid-Ar the Avenger. The term 'to grind' is thus linked to the Cycle of the Ages or the 'Precession of the Equinoxes' - 'two women grinding at the mill'. This clearly refers to our time. Also in Beowulf we find the idea of the Hun-Sword passing to the Engel-Kin and to Hengest when 'winter is gone', i.e. in the spring of the year. Hengest here represents the 'resurrection' at the Dawn-Time of the Age of Aquarius - the Geist of Ingwe. Ingwe is associated with the rising of the sap (blood) which happens in the spring of the year, and which brings back to life that which was dormant over the winter. 

Ingwe - The Awakener of the Blood

Addition (12th May 2021) -

In regard to the link between Ingwe & Krist there is yet another root which seems to confirm this theory. In the New Testament Krist is referred to as the Lamb of God which is a rather strange title, but one which seems to be rather the Ram of God (a hidden meaning). There is an IE Root ag(w)h-no which means 'lamb', from which we get the Old English eanian which has the meaning 'to bring forth young'.
