AESIR-VANIR MYSTERY - PART TWO


 




Frey and Freya were not only brother and sister but also man and wife; this was, we are told in the Eddas, a trait of the Vanir-Gods. The names 'Freya' and 'Frigg' seem to stem from the same root-word, so we can assume that Freya is not only the brother and husband of Frey, but also 'The Mother'. We find recorded the name of Frey and Freya's father, Njord, but not of the mother; yet Tacitus (Germania) tells us of a Goddess Nerthus who was worshipped by certain Germanic Tribes including the Angles. However, I am not a language scholar, but I have read that the name 'Nerthus' is male. This could be a misunderstanding, or perhaps another way to emphasise the lack of 'The Mother'. Whatever the case, Nerthus is a Goddess of the Underworld, as the name suggests. What we are dealing with here is perhaps not so much the physical 'waters' but the AEP (AP/AB) - the 'Waters of the Netherworld'. 

In the Vedas, Agni is sometimes referred to as Apam Napat - 'apam' being the 'Waters of the Netherworld'. Indeed, we have here Ingwe-Frey as almost always associated with the 'waters', and Agni almost always associated with 'fire'; and yet we can see here that both have association with Fire and Water, or more precise 'Fire-in-Water'. In Norse Lore Ingwe-Frey is associated with 'Water', and in Vedic Lore Agni is associated with 'Fire', linking the two together we see things in a different light. 

The word 'pyramid' can mean 'Fire-in-the Mid'; this has 4 sides, each one a unilateral triangle. The Number 4 can thus be equated with - Fire. There is another number equated with Fire & Kingship - the Number 27 (3 x 9). Man's ancestor is Ash and the Ash-Tree, Iggdrasil is known as a 'Measurer' - the 'Measuring-Tree'.We measure in numbers which hints of the importance of the numbers concerned with the World Ash. Firstly we have its 3 roots, which may be in fact 3 x 3 roots - i.e. the Sacred Number 9. Iggdrasil means, I believe, the 'Steed of Igg', which directly equates to Sleipnir who has 8 legs - the Sacred Number 8 (2 x 2 x 2). The Number 9 and Number 8, when multiplied make 72, a number associated with the Precession of the Equinoxes and the Circle. 

There is nothing in the Christian texts to suggest that their Jesus Christ has 'Five Wounds', and yet this came into Christianity later, used on the banner of Saint Cuthbert, so it must have originated somewhere. The 'Five Wounds' do however come into Njal's Saga where Hoskuldr Hvitanesgoti is cut down by five killers whilst sowing in a field. He wears a scarlet robe and is associated with a chest that contains the robe and the blood from the five wounds. (There is another Hoskuldr who has 16 wounds.) Scarlet, it seems, was associated with the corn and  corn-growing, and in these ideas we find a similar tale of Osiris in Egypt. Osiris is a 'God of the Corn' or 'God of Grain', who (in some versions) is cut into 16 pieces, put together by Isis and Nepthys after which Isis mounts the body and Horus the Avenger is born of this. (Osiris = As-Ar). 

In one Egyptian Text we find that Osiris is the animating-force behind the inundation of the Nile each year, this being the only way that crops could grow in such an area. In one version Osiris is cast away in a boat - this fits with our own Scef. As the 'God of Grain' Ingwe-Frey is also associated with the waters, as I have said earlier. Of course, going back to Part One of this post, the cutting down of the 'God of Grain' can be found in the famous Folk-Song, John Barleycorn. In this he is also associated with 'water' and with 'fire'. 




On the subject of Iggdrasil and the 'Measuring-Tree' we have also the Skapker Heidrunar which is the 'Measurer of Heidrun' - the Goat-Constellation of Capricorn. This, it seems, is the 'Northern Gateway to the Gods'. Capricorn is associated with the Winter Sunstead and Yule, the turning-point of the Solar-Year. In The Sacred Triangle of Pagan Iceland Einar Palsson outlines some of this stuff in far more detail, and sees both the chest holding the Scarlet Robe & Blood and the Skapker Heidrunar as the 'Horn of Plenty' - the Womb of the Great Mother and Womb of Creation. Without knowing any of this at the time, back in the spring of 1997 when the Hale-Bopp Comet was seen in the Northern Skies I had the dream that this was 'sent by Morgana' and that 'Capricorn - the Horn of Plenty' was important.

The Skapker Heidrunar is the horn that nourishes the Einheriar after their daily battle and dying-to-rebirth. This suggests that it is this that revives the Einheriar that they may continue the Everlasting Battle. The 'Horn of Plenty' is clearly associated with the harvesting thus directly to Ingwe-Frey. Einar Palsson may well be on the track here, but I cannot as yet see where this links to the 'Holy Grail', although this does act to regenerate the Royal Kingship and the Land. We may have to look a little differently at the Myth of the Einheriar, since this could be seen in a different way.

Valhalla, as I have said before, is a 'training-ground' for Woden's Chosen Warriors, where they fight each day, die each day and are 'resurrected' to fight again the next day. Here the Skapker Heidrunar contains the Sacred Drink that 'resurrects' the Divine Heroes. Maybe we should extend this to their role in the Eternal Conflict (Everlasting Battle), since they go the 'Way of the Gods' by going to Valhalla, and from there being reborn at will to fight again here in Middle-Earth. In which case we can see the Skapker Heidrunar as containing the draft that is given to them in order that they can be reborn again and again into this Eternal Battle. 



At some point in the Cycle of the Ages, Tiw lost his 'right hand' in order to bind (for now) the Fenris Wolf. It was necessary for Woden Initiates to take the 'Left-Hand Path' in the Warg-Age or Kali Yuga, since this is the 'Road to the Immortals'. During the Kali Yuga it seems that Sacral Kingship was lost to the 'Warrior Kings' who were thus lacking in the priestly side, and thus lacked the philosophical side of Sacral Kingship - the Priest-Kings. We can perhaps see this in the split of King and Priest (Magician) - Aragorn & Gandalf, Arthur & Merlin etc. We can perhaps see this in the split between the Right-Left Brains in mankind, which reflects what is going on at a different level. The balance has been lost in favour of the Left-Brain or Rational Mind. At the ending-point of a given civilisation ego-centredness takes control; but the ego is necessary and not to be destroyed, but has to be transmuted into the Absolute I (Serrano).

AESIR-VANIR MYSTERY - PART ONE.

 


We must remember when dealing with Ancient Religions that they always worked at two distinct levels - the Lesser Mysteries (Exoteric for the Mass) and the Greater Mysteries (Esoteric for the Initiates). The Lesser Mysteries would have been based around the physical cycles of Nature, the yearly death & rebirth, whereas the Greater Mysteries would have been based upon the Quest for Immortality - the Quest to become the God-Man. I think that we can find this in our own Germanic Mythology, and will try to outline this here. 

I will start with Ingwe-Frea here who is seen as a 'God of Fertility', a 'God of Virility' no doubt of both crops and within man too. But Ingwe is the 'Divine Spark' within Man, the 'Divine Son' sent by the Gods to mankind as Scef-Ingwe in the beginning, the God of the Grain, since he has a Sheaf of Corn under his head. Here we can see him as alike to the Egyptian 'God of Grain' - Osiris. Scef-Ingwe or Ingwe-Frea can be seen as the 'God of Grain', and his role within the Vanir-Gods or Elven Folk could be symbolised by the Serpent - the earth-bound creature. Thus the most ancient Serpent-Cults and their links to Earth, Nature and Land. 

It is usually accepted that these cults were of the Sacral King who was slain each year to be replaced by another Sacral King, thus the Yearly Cycle of the Earth, and maybe why Frea is called the Ar-God - though there is also another reason for this, as I will show. In this Slaying of the Sacral King we often find that he is slain by his brother, whose wife is then taken by the brother as his own, as he takes over the role of kingship. This is linked to Sovereignty where the Sacral King is 'married' to the Sacred Land, and when he is slain by his brother it is the brother who marries his wife - Sovereignty at one level. But....have we not seen this series of events before, but in an altered form?

Why does the author of Beowulf replace the native English Divine Ancestor - Scef - with the Danish Scyld? Because this is set in Denmark, or is there another reason for this? Scyld is the progenitor of the Scyldings, the Danish Royal Line that replaced the Cycle of the Death of the King with hereditary kingship. So, this was a different concept, and one it seems that was through the Cult of Woden. Since it is very doubtful that the 'new' cult replaced the old one because it was abhorred by the yearly (or periodic) 'king-slaying' then there has to be another reason for this. The author of Beowulf did, however, show the continuum here rather than a 'replacement' (as some would have it) by making Scyld the 'Son of Scef'. The Symbol of Scef-Ingwe is the Sheaf of Corn whereas the Symbol of Scyld is the Sun-Shield; this is a very important point since it represents a New Order and a change of era.

Where have we seen this 'king-slaying' before? The Myth of Hamlet (Amleth-Amlodhi) which, by Shakespeare, was set in Denmark. Here the myth is exactly the same, with one fundamental difference - 

The king is slain by his brother, and the brother takes the wife of the king and the kingship; but...the king's son vows to take revenge upon his uncle, and plays The Fool so that the uncle is not suspicious. 

This is the Mystery of The Hooded Man which forms the basis of Folkish Wodenism. This is the New Order that must have taken place at the end of a world-age, which changes things considerably. This is not the 'Nasty Aryan Theory' where these warrior-elites warred and defeated a peaceful, nature-loving people, for it is a change of order necessary due to the cycle of the ages. Ingwe now becomes 'The Avenging Son', and for very good reason as we shall see. 

The link between Ingwe and Denmark is important, since we know from the Old English Rune-Poem that 'Ing was first seen amongst the East-Danes'. Angul and Dan are said to have been brothers too. Also, Ing is said to have gone 'eastwards', the word est meaning either 'east' or 'back' - suggesting that his journey was not once but twice - perhaps eastwards after the sinking of At-al-land, and westwards back to England through Hengest & Horsa. 

Now, what appears to be the case here is that we have a change of 'world order', a change from the 'Peace of Frodi' to a warlike period whence the Warg Age sets in for real. This does not infer an 'invasion' from outside, nor a new set go gods, but an internal change in which the gods themselves transmute into a new form suited to the New Order. We may well see this in the figure of Helgi Hundingsbane whose birth is that of a Warrior-Hero, used in by the Wyrd Sisters (Norns), and prophesied by the Speech of the Ravens. Clearly, his mother is rather taken aback at the prospect, knowing that Helgi has been born to break the 'Peace of Frodi' and to wage wars and conflicts at the start of the Warg-Age or Age of Iron. This may also be found, perhaps in the Song of Rig where Rig-Earl's destiny is to take back the 'Eden-Lands' - the 'Eighteen Manors of the North'. This does not infer an 'invasion' in the sense of a new people, but in the sense of Germanic Folk under a new Folk-Leader taking control in order to enforce the New Order - necessary because of the Cycle of the Ages. 

In the Myth of Knit Mountain we find Woden shape-shifting into a Serpent in order to gain access to the mountain, where the auger - RATI - is used to do so. I have also shown how the term 'Rati' was used of Hama (Heimdall), and thus, like Agni aiding the gaining of the Soma, here Woden is aided by Hama (in this case Ingwe who is a similar archetype - as I will show). Woden sleeps with Gunnlod, who sits in the 'Golden Chair', for three nights in a Tantric Love-Rite, and thus gains the Sacred Mead from Suttung the Giant ('Son of Sutt'). To escape, aided by Gunnlod, he shape-shifts into an Eagle. Here we have the imagery of Iggdrasil - the World Tree, with the Serpent (Nid-Hogg) ate the base, and the Eagle at the top. The term 'Did-Hogg' would refer to the Underworld Serpent, but importantly here described as a 'hogg' - Boar. The 'Messenger of the Gods', who runs up and down the World Tree (here also representing the Fire-Serpent) is, I feel, Ingwe, which seems to be underlined when we see the name RATA-TOSK where 'tosk' is 'tooth' or more precisely 'tusk' (of the Boar, the Symbol of Ingwe), and RATA (like AGNI-INGA) is the reflection of ATAR which is the Aryan Persian name for the Sacred Fire. The imagery of the Serpent (Earth-Bound) being transformed into the Eagle (Heaven-Bird) is thus the transformation of the mortal into the Immortal. 

I believe that this is the key to this, that the shift from the Earth-Bound Cults to the Sky-Gods was a necessary change of order which had to happen at this particular time because of the evolutionary drive towards Man becoming the God-Man - the Quest for Immortality. This was perhaps why, in the first instance, there had to be the First War in the World, between the Aesir & Vanir, because they had to be a fusion of opposites in order to create a new form for the future transformation. We can perhaps see this in the Tir-Rune which is the Rune of Balance & Harmony; Tiw loses his Right Hand, and thus the Tir-Rune becomes Lagu which is the Left-Hand Path, the path we need to take to be able to undertake the Quest for Immortality - the Path of the Hero. 'Peace and Plenty' have no place here in the Warg-Age, as we can see today; struggle and strife are the norm in these times, and this is the only means that the evolutionary purpose can take place. The 'Gods of Peace and Plenty' have to transmute into the 'Gods of War and Struggle'. 

We can perhaps see this theme in the Myth of Baeldaeg, where the Sun-God is not the god of the yearly death-rebirth as found in the classical myths, but he is slain and will not return from Hela (Odainsacre) until after Ragnarok. Through the Merseburg Charm where Baeldaeg's Foal (Pol's Foal) has its legs 'broken' we can see that the symbol of Baeldaeg in the Underworld is the Swastika, which is here the symbol of the Black Sun since it is the Sun of the Former World. When the feet are healed by Woden, and Baeldaeg's Ring is returned, the symbolism will change to the Solar-Wheel. The 'broken' Fylfot ('Foal's Foot') will become the Sun-Wheel - an Eternal Circle without Beginning or End.

We can find a connection here to Idunn, the Goddess of Regeneration and of the Apples of Immortality. In the Myth of Idunn we find a strange statement, that she placed her 'splendidly-washed arms around her brother's killer', which suggests a link to the Vanir-Gods (Waene). Idunn is a daughter of Ivalde (Wade), so her brother would be Orwandil the Archer ('Arrow-Wandil') (*), whose son is Amleth (Hamlet). Thus, like Frey and Freya, it may be that Idunn's 'brother' is also her husband, a peculiarity of the Vanir-Gods. In the same lineage we find the change of order in that a little further down the line Amleth '('The Son') avenges his father to take the throne which is his by right. The Royal Line then passes from father to eldest son which remained in force until modern times of 'equality' when this is not seen as 'fair'. (**)

(*) Rydberg sees Orwandil as being Egil the Archer, which seems quite feasible; he is the brother of Weland the Smith. 

(**) In regard to this being 'unfair', this is not the point, since by passing it to the eldest son by right (unless, of course, he was not fit to take it) the land and property was held in the family to be passed on again. When the land and property were shared then it would be lost forever to the family, which is how things degenerated in time. Sharing it meant more likely selling it to share the proceeds - losing the land in the process. 

To sidetrack a little, it may well be that we have a link between the Vanir-Gods and the Wolsungas, since we find this 'sister-husband' chain used in order to keep the Royal Line going. There is also the 'Apple' given to Rerir by a handmaid of Frigg when he is old, which regenerates the line again. This suggests the Apples of Idunn. There is also another point here which concerns the Gral Mythos as given by Wolfram von Eschenbach; here he mentions the hero - Parsifal ('The Fool') - comes from Waels often taken as 'Wales', but more likely refers to the Waelsingas (Wolsungas). According to Richard Wagner's Ring Cycle the Wolsungas were a Divine Race sired by Woden. This suggests a change of role for the Vanir-Aesir, a transmutation into a New Order. 

The Royal Line of the West Saxons (Wessex) traces back past Woden to Scef-Scyld-Beow ('Sheaf' - 'Shield' - 'Barley'). This may not have been added for no good reason, for it gives a clue that Woden (AEsir) came at a period of transformation after the 'Peace of Frodi' and the Vanir-Gods rule. Obviously, Sheaf and Barley refer to the Corn-Gods or Corn-Spirits, and in the Lesser Mysteries to the Ar-Cycle - the Yearly Cycle. These are vegetative forces, and here may well be the clue to the Greater Mystery, since it is this vegetative force that the Aesir-Gods need in order to be able to transmute from the earthly state to the Immortal State. This is why Man developed the 'I' or 'Ego', in order that it can be strengthened and transmuted into the Absolute I (Miguel Serrano). This is the Left-Hand Path (Lagu) of the Divine Heroes - those who feel this in the Blood-Memory. 

Ingvi-Frey is actually associated with barley since Gerda sleeps with him in the Grove of Barri ('Barley'). It may also have been that Frey was seen as having a Barley-Wreath around his neck. There is a play-on-words when the 'Neck of the Corn' phrase is used, since the Old Norse word for 'sheaf' is 'nek' or 'neg'. In Norse Myth Byggvir means 'Barley-Man', and this become Pekko of the Finns, and a similar tale to that of Scef can be found in the Kalevala as Samsa Pellervoinen, who comes as a boy-child in a 'corn-boat'. 

We find the link with Scyld ('Shield') in the tale told of the monks of Abingdon, but here there is added that a 'Lighted Taper' is to be found at the head of the Sheaf of Corn. This is where the connection to Ingwe (Agni) can be found, since it suggests a 'Fire-God'. Hama (Heimdall) is also a 'God of Fire', and connected to the Brosingamen Necklace of Freya (Sister of Ingwe). We are not talking here specifically of a 'sheaf of corn', but the 'Spirit of the Corn' - the spirit or force that animates the germination and growth of the corn. The 'shield' is also found in the 'Winnowing Basket' used to sort the seed from the chaff - the 'wheat from the chaff' as we say. The 'wound in the thigh' (Ingwe has one meaning of 'groin' or 'thigh') is the separation of the seed (generative power) from the main plant. A good way to view this is the famous song - John Barleycorn. Of course, the name 'Beowulf' means 'Bee-Wolf', but Beow, Son of Scyld, means 'Barley', so the name Beowulf could also mean 'Barley-Wolf'. The author of the Beowulf Saga may well have had this in mind.

As the Ar-God Ingwe relates to the Black Sun - AR - and thus to the 'Former World' which was taken from the physical dimension after the Great Catastrophe, and is in the 'Inner Earth'. In the Armanen Rune System (*) the Ar-Rune is the 'Rune of the Aryan' and the 'Rune of the Eagle', and here we see the inference of a transmutation from the physical yearly cycle to the possibility of the Immortality of Man - from the Serpent to the Eagle (or Winged Serpent). Ingwe (Serpent) thus transformed into the 'Fire-Serpent' symbolised by the 'awakening' of the Kundalini (Ken-Force). Thus, in the Old Testament (which has been taken from heathen sources originally) we find the Fiery Serpent helping Man (Adam & Eve) to eat of the Tree of Knowledge (develop the 'I' or 'Ego' and thus know 'Good & Evil') and then of the Tree of Life (thus becoming 'as gods' - Immortals). The whole process was kicked in the teeth by Shaddain-Jehovah until the 'Solar Krist' came to give to 'him that overcometh to eat of the Tree of Life' - to carry on the striving for regaining of Immortality and the recreation of the ancient Solar-Man.

(*) This may indicate the High Knowledge known by the Armanen Initiates, since the Yearly Cycle at its physical level now becomes the 'Quest for the Immortal'. Linked to Ingwe again is the fact that the Ar-Rune is also the 'Primal Fire'. That this tells us that at this time, in this way, the rune-meanings were changed to suit a New Order, and this fitted in such a way as to adapt the system for the evolutionary change that was coming - the 'Coming Man'. 

In the Book of Sajaha we find the Babylonian Seeress telling us how the ancient magical powers were lost with the fall of the Primeval Empire (Thule). As the downward Cycle of the Ages progressed (regressed) these ancient powers became harder and harder to attain, and only Adepts and Masters could so such things. This is where the use of mind-changing plants were used to access higher (or lower) states of consciousness; the Red-Capped Mushroom was one way, as well as Belladonna and Henbane (Witchcraft), and also used was a mind-alterant and another highly poisonous substance - Ergot. Ergot is the basis of LSD and is a fungus found on Barley and Rye; it is possibly the basis of the Kykeon, the ritual drink used in the Mysteries of Eleusis. The final meals of some of the 'bog-men' found in Denmark contained Ergot. (The subtle sound-mystery ER-GOT and AR-God may also be relevant.) 




The image of the cross-legged horned god holding a torc and serpent, found on the Gundestrup Cauldron in Denmark is that of 'Cernunnos' - however, since the figure of 'Cernnunos' appears only once - in Gaul - then this one is more likely to be that of Ingwe-Frea. We do know of the worship in Dorset of a pillar, a stag and a snake but not of its origins. However, a horned god holding a noose can be found on one of the Horns of Gallehus. The figure here is of the 'Lord of Animals', a very ancient figure indeed. (The cauldron is actually thought to be 'Scythian' and not 'Celtic' as scholars maintain.) 

Ingwe-Frea is the 'Wagon-Borne God' and he is clearly associated with Bootes, Arcturus (Arctur - The Once & Future King) and the Waen (Woden's Waen) which is the Waen of Ing too. His father is said to be Njord, who is likely linked to the Goddess Nerthus - Goddess of the Underworld (from an IE Root *ner- meaning 'below' or 'beneath'). 

A vessel associated with Immortality and Regeneration is the Skapfer Heidrunar which contains the Sacred Drink given to the Einheriar in Valhalla, that which rejuvenates them each night. The name means 'Measuring Vessel of Heidrun', she being the northern name for Capricorn; thus, this is the 'Horn of Plenty'. I am here reminded of a vivid dream at the time of the Hale-Bopp Comet when I was told that this was 'Capricorn - the Horn of Plenty' and was 'Sent by Morgana' - i.e. Comet Hale-Bopp or the Bab-Komet (Baphomet). Capricorn is the 'Northern Gateway to the Gods'.

Racial Unconscious

 



The famous Swiss Psychologist, Carl Jung, started his fall-out with Sigmund Freud over an interpretation of a dream. In this dream he visited a room in a modern setting, then going down a flight of stairs to another room, this time in a much older setting, and thirdly going down a flight of dusty, old stone steps into a type of basement or cellar in which bones were scattered around and two skulls. Freud interpreted this as Jung have a wish to kill two people (the two skulls presumably), but Jung saw this as being connected to the three levels of the human mind -

  • The top room being the Conscious Mind,
  • The second room below being the Subconscious Mind,
  • The cellar or basement being the Collective Unconscious.
The problem we face in dealing with Carl Jung's work is that much of it has never been published, and what has been was in many ways altered to suit the growing reluctance to tell the truth. From what I have read Jung's 'Collective Unconscious' did not refer to that of the whole human race, which is how his work is today portrayed, but he believed that each race had its own 'Collective Unconscious', or what we would call 'Racial Unconscious'. This is a far different thing, and I think one of the reasons Jung and Freud broke their friendship and went their separate ways.

Before Ragnarok Woden consults the Head of Mimir - the Severed Head - which had been given the power of speech by the Gods. In an old Ulster Myth the Ulstermen are unable to defend themselves against an enemy because they have fallen under a curse. The only thing that breaks the curse and awakens the Ulstermen to their plight is when a severed head is brought into the camp on a shield. This reminds me of the 'two skulls' mentioned in the dream of Carl Jung, which were in the cellar with some 'bones'. 




The 'Death's Head' or Totenkopf is made up of a skull and crossed bones, hence the 'Skull & Crossbones' associated with sea-pirates (with the patch over the right eye, which suggests Woden). The crossed-bones is a Gifu-Rune or 'Gift-Rune', and here we need to look deeper into this mystery. In experiments on rats (which I certainly do not endorse) it has been found time and time again that they have a 'Racial Memory' which stores memory and passes it to the next generation of rats, and then to the next generation again. This suggests that this is so of mankind too, and that a kind of 'Racial Memory' is stored in the DNA Code and then passed on from generation to generation. 




The Ing-Rune is the Double-Helix of the DNA; this is made up, as we see here, of two Gifu-Runes - 'Gift of Ing'. The same meaning applies to the Edel-Rune and the Gar-Rune. Edred Thorsson (FUTHARK - A Handbook of Rune Magic) gives the following meanings for the Edel-Rune -

  • Ancestral Property.
  • Nature, Inborn Quality.

Both the 'Ancestral Property' (Edel-Land) and the 'Nature' or 'Inborn Quality' of an individual are passed on from generation to generation. This is the 'Gift of Ing', and is the concept 'Blood & Soil' which is the meaning of this rune; the Ing-Rune is the 'Rune of the Blood'. 




I suppose the Edel-Rune could also be seen as a skull (diamond) and bones (X), but this may be taking this a bit too far. The rune itself is also an 'enclosure' and again the 'gift' is that it is 'gifted' to the next generation. This goes also for the 'Gift of the Blood' (Blood-Memory) which is passed from generation to generation. Of course, if we only knew how to access this 'gift' then we would learn things a lot quicker in life. 




It seems obvious from Jung's dream that the Skull & Bones are thus symbolic of the Racial Unconscious (Race-Soul) and thus a 'gateway' into this level of consciousness. We could now equate these three levels with the 'Three Cauldrons' and add one more piece to the ALU-Formula -

First Level - 'Now' - The Head Centre (ANSUZ) - The Conscious Mind.

Second Level - 'Olden Time' - The Heart Centre (LAGU) - The Subconscious Mind.

Third Level - 'The Cellar' - The Hara-Centre or Base-Centre (UR) accessed by the Skull & Crossbones - The Racial Unconscious or Ur-Consciousness. We should note that the Ur-Rune can also be seen in terms of 'our', i.e. a collective, in this case the Collective Unconscious of our Race. 

In terms of the HALU-Formula we can see the Haegl-Rune as being the centre above the head, and thus representing the Super-Consciousness - this, of course, being Above Time - Eternity. 

The one thing about the dream of Carl Jung is that it can give us a means of trying to connect with the Racial Unconsciousness by using the images that he had in the dream, the three levels, each one with a different 'room'. It is noticeable that the third level (bottom level) was down a flight of stone steps, because this was exactly as the dream I had some months ago about Shiva the Destroyer. Here I went down a flight of spiral stone stairs into a 'cellar' (same image') where the god Shiva was starting the Dance of Destruction wielding a Mighty Sword in a kind of 'whirling-dance', spinning around and around. He was chanting a war-chant, the words of which I cannot recall, though I recall these being rather 'non-PC'. Also, of importance that I had forgotten, this dream came in the night after I had watched a YouTube video where a Hindu Guru was chanting a Shiva-Mantra! 

The Welsh version of 'The Son of The Mother' - Mabon, son of Modron - is the 'Divine Child', whose name 'son of' is the same as Ingwe. He is the Son of Sovereign - the Sacred Land - when he appears as the 'Divine Child'. He is 'imprisoned' 'hidden' or 'lost' and in a sense we can perhaps equate this with the 'Racial Unconscious' which is truly 'hidden' or 'lost' to us, until we access it through esoteric means. Mabon can appear in Middle-Earth as a Warrior-Hero, hunting down the corrupt, a Poet-Seer whose prophecies show a pathway in a confused world, or a Sacrificial King who brings justice to a war-torn land. To find the imprisoned Mabon it is necessary to consult a series of animals, (*) until the Salmon recalls hearing the sound of a child in a stone castle. The 'stone castle' itself is an Archetypal Image, just like the 'stone cellar' is an Archetypal Image. 

(*) This is a sort of regression where we are taken backwards through the Cycles of the Ages until the lost 'Divine Child' is found in the Stone Castle. In fact these ideas came to me yesterday when I did a meditation in which I went backwards through everything that I had done that day. Somehow this seems to have triggered these ideas, after seeing something about the dream of Jung. I am here reminded of the Widdershins Swastika which moves backwards against the flow of time, and which can be seen as a kind of 'regression' taking us back to the Origins, in order to fulfil our Destiny.
