Folkish. What does it mean?

honor-your-ancestors

To be “folkish” means to be “of a folk”…a tribe, ethnic or racial group, or a nation (in the original sense of the word, as in “the Sioux nation”). To say that we are “folkish Asatru” means nothing more or less than to say that we see Asatru as a native religion – a religion of a particular people; specifically, Europeans.

The world is full of native religions, on every continent – to include North America. These hundreds – perhaps thousands – of tribes, bands and nations around the planet are each “the religion of a particular people.” Few if any of them allow participation in their religious rites by outsiders beyond a certain level. Take for example the Native Americans. Yes, anyone can come and watch dances at a powwow. But there comes a point where outsiders are excluded. This point differs from tribe to tribe and from culture to culture, but in the real world, indigenous people share their deepest rites rarely – or not at all. This is what being “folkish” is all about.

There is a common attitude among indigenous people that their religion is proprietary: that it in some sense “belongs” to the group in question. Some of the Sioux, in particular, have been especially vocal about the appropriation of their religious ceremonies and symbols by non-Indians. This attitude of ownership has been noted and approved by left-wing writers, and while I very much agree with them, I wish that the innate connection between the European people and their ancient faiths was likewise recognized…especially by European-descended people themselves!

Those who are critical of folkish Asatru seldom extend their criticism to Asians, Africans, South Americans, and the Native Americans of North America. Apparently, folkish religion is bad only if Europeans practice it.

The position of the Asatru Folk Assembly is that all native religions spring from the soul of a particular people. It is the distilled spiritual experience of that people, passed on to them by their ancestors. We respect that special relationship and stand in solidarity with all peoples, anywhere in the world, who seek to protect their spiritual and cultural heritage from appropriation, exploitation, or dilution.

Hail the Gods!

Order of Odalist’s Ritual # 1

How to awaken your hammer. You can’t just buy one and hang it around your neck and expect anything other than a simple decoration. You’ll need a few things first in order to perform the ritual. The hammer, preferably a black candle, a black piece of cloth capable of covering the hammer twice and A 2-foot piece of leather cord and a needle or razor blade or hallowed knife.

Step 1
Starting in the north perform the hammer Hallowing refer to the symbol and bloats opening ritual but this time you will go to all eight points. The 8-fold division of the sky North-Northeast East Southeast South-Southwest West North West and Midgard. Request the presence of all the Gods and Goddesses.

Step 2
Light the candle and sign the Kenaz rune 3 times over the candle while saying ” cleansing flame of ancestral Might, awaken and join the searching Souls so that strengthened they will be”Kenaz rune shape on the rightkenaz

Step 3
Holding the hammer high call upon Thor to accept you as a warrior for the folk saying ” Mighty Thunder God, my brother may this Hammer be filled with your power that I be marked as a warrior of the FOLK.”

Step 4
With a black cloth open and on the altar prepare to offer sacrifice. Call out ” Thor protector of the folk by this Blood offering do I join with your will, May our father Odin guide us along this path.” Make a small cut or prick your finger and place your blood on the hammer while saying ” Laguz, Laguz, Laguz, Blood of Kvasir be blessed, Rune might blooms in the blend.”

Step 5
Wrap the hammer in the black cloth and bind it with the leather cord while saying, ” into the den of the darkness deep wend thy way, undoomed yet, nights all night while away thy spell sleep gain and grow in weal and wealth.” Bury the hammer in the sacred land if possible, or place away for nine nights.

Step 6
Close the circle thanking the holy ones and ancestors bearing Witness. Close as you would have sambal or bloat. Put out the candle and withdraw from The Grove or sacred area.

Step 7
After 9 days and nights return. Set up your altar the same as before you will need hallowed Mead and any other ritual items that you wish to use or have present. Open with hammer Hallowing the same as before, all 8 directions including the sky and Midgard.

Step 8
The Awakening. Dig up the hammer from its slumber. Place the hammer in the center of the altar. Then walk around the altar nine times while saying, ” By the cycles of life you are Born”. Sit in the Holy Circle by the altar facing north. Light the candle or use a sacred fire in the center of the Grove. Make the kenaz rune above it saying, ” light of knowledge shine unto this newborn”.

Step 9
The birth. Unbind the leather cord and open the cloth slowly saying” Hail the day that you are born to Bear my will and that of the Gods. Go your way towards the light to work the laws of nature.” Hold the hammer to your mouth and breathe strongly out:” Odin, Vili, Ve”. Pass the hammer over the Flames 3 times saying” Holy cleansing fire, let the quickening begin.”

Step 10
The naming. Dip your finger into the hallowed mead , and sprinkle the hammer while saying ” I sprinkle thee with hallowed Mead and name the ___________ .” The name should be special and known only to you. Tell no one. Be careful when calling on your hammer by name especially in the dream Realm. He who knows the hammer controls its power but it can be influenced by other forces.

Step 11
Closing. Hold the hammer high and say,” Now the work has been wrought with the might of the mighty runes. So shall it be.” Give thanks to all those bearing witness to the ritual. Gods Goddesses and Ancestors. Close the circle.

Wednesday the Norse and Roman Days of the week and the origin of their names.

 wodon

The Old English word for Wednesday wodnesdæg “Woden’s day” ( indicates that the day was named for the Germanic god Woden / Odin. 

The name Wednesday continues The name is a calque of the Latin dies Mercurii “day of Mercury”, reflecting the fact that the Germanic god Woden (Wodanaz or Odin) during the Roman era was interpreted as “Germanic Mercury”.

In Norse mythology, Odin is the father of Thor and Tyr was the king of the Æsir. Odin sacrificed his eye at Mimir’s spring in order to gain the Wisdom of Ages He is a god of war and death, as well as a sky god and the god of wisdom and poetry. Along with being a god, he is the All-Father of all the Nordic Gods. Odin is associated with healing, death, royalty, the gallows, knowledge, battle, sorcery, poetry, frenzy, and the runic alphabet, and is the husband of the goddess Frigg.

Time for the Lion to feed!

“It is better to live one day as a lion than 100 years as a sheep.”

lions

You watch those nature documentaries on the cable?  You see the one about lions? You got this lion. He’s the king of the jungle, huge mane out to here. He’s laying under a tree, in the middle of Africa. He’s so big, it’s so hot. He doesn’t want to move. Now the little lions come, they start messing with him. Biting his tail, biting his ears. He doesn’t do anything. The lioness, she starts messing with him. Coming over, making trouble. Still nothing. Now the other animals, they notice this. They start to move in. The jackals; hyenas. They’re barking at him, laughing at him. They nip his toes, and eat the food that’s in his domain. They do this, then they get closer and closer, bolder and bolder. Till one day, that lion gets up and tears the shit out of everybody. Runs like the wind, eats everything in his path. Cause every once in a while, the lion has to show the jackals, who he is.

 

 

Wolves Don’t Lose Sleep Over The Opinions Of Sheep

Wolves Don’t Lose Sleep Over The Opinions Of Sheep!

 

neverlosesleep

If you are an Odalist, Odinist, or follower of Asatru odds are that you have adopted the Wolf mentality. Although wolves are happiest and most effective when we hunt and live within a wolf pack/tribe  Many choose not to form or join a wolf pack/tribe or there are not enough kin within their area for them to take such actions. So they must stay solitary, a lone wolf.  It is better to stay true to our nine noble virtues than to allow the de-evolution of your spirit and be like so many other sheeple.  The life of a sheep is easier than the life of a wolf. Sheep are given food and water freely by their shepherd and are protected from predators by shelters they did not build. They fatten themselves on the shepherd’s food, thriving into a multitude that outnumbers the Wolves

But these comforts bind the sheep into slavery. The sheep are bred to be weaker of mind and body, to require the shepherd’s protection so greatly that they can be free of physical chains but never stray. Theirs is a lifetime of servitude — one that is comfortable but ends at the shepherd’s whim.

Wolves have no masters. Though the wolf must hunt for its own food and search for its own shelter, it is free to roam where it wishes and requires no one to open its gate. Though the feeding trough of the sheep is filled, it is only with the grass and grain of its master’s choosing. A lion must hunt and chase its meals, but feasts on anything it catches.

Wealth and success never come to those who simply wait for them to arrive.

   Some humans choose to be sheep. They desire freedom but rely on others to provide their comforts, striving for riches but investing little effort to attain it. They scream in protest when they are fenced in and herded — angry that they are not free like the wolves — but accept the shepherd’s food nonetheless. Though they rebel by day, they always wander home to their cages by night.

Only a fool believes that all deserve equal rewards for unequal effort.

Leaders must have unwavering confidence in their decision to choose effort over leisure. As human sheep boast of their slothful lives of ease and criticize any who work to better themselves, the shepherds pay no heed.

Mockery is weak when shouted through the bars of a cage.

   Is it the Wolf’s stupidity that keeps it from a life of leisure? How can so many sheep be wrong as they grow fatter on the shepherd’s food? Why would any creature choose to run free in the dangerous and uncertain wilderness?

Humans are not born as sheep or wolves but must choose a path for themselves. Will you strive for what is easy and safe? To follow close to the multitude? To remain within the fences that protect you from the outside but imprison you within its boundaries? Or will you travel the path you choose, exploring freely in the dangerous forests of life, leading your own way in a planet filled with followers?

At sunset, the sheep are herded back into their prison and fed until they drift into sleep. The wolf enjoys no such promises, wandering upon the mountains in search of a meal: hungry, but free.

Though it lacks the comforts of a shepherd’s security, a wolf never wishes for the life of a sheep. A wolf may hunger while a sheep is fed, but the fattest sheep is the wolfs’s meal.

For Blood, Soil, and Honor

Winston Smith.

War is not meant to be won. It’s meant to be continuous.

neverwon

Before I begin this rant, Trump’s Foreign Policy is to WIN a war. Not blow up the place and pay Halliburton to rebuild. Conquer, Destroy, Create. Very different than the past puppets of power.  With the Perverted Virus of Islam removed from the earth. These countries will experience greatness like never before. A Volcano erupts, It destroys everything in its path. Does the mother earth not renew and become stronger that ever before? Does life not flourish and the predator/prey balance become aligned again?

“Attention! Your attention, please! A newsflash has this moment arrived from the Malabar front. Our forces in South India have won a glorious victory. I am authorized to say that the action we are now reporting may well bring the war within measurable distance of its end. Here is the newsflash –”Bad news coming, thought Winston. And sure enough, following on a gory description of the annihilation of a Eurasian army, with stupendous figures of killed and prisoners”

(The announcement of war in Oceania is so constant that Winston can almost predict it)

“Winston could not definitely remember a time when his country had not been at war, but it was evident that there had been a fairly long interval of peace during his childhood because one of his early memories was of an air raid, which appeared to take everyone by surprise. Perhaps it was the time when the atomic bomb had fallen on Colchester. He did not remember the raid itself”

(No matter how hard he digs at his memory, Winston is uncertain whether a time existed when Oceania was not at war with someone)

“Since about that time. War had been literally continuous, though strictly speaking it had not always been the same war. For several months during his childhood, there had been confused street fighting in London itself, some of which he remembered vividly. But to trace out the history of the whole period, to say who was fighting whom at any given moment, would have been utterly impossible, since no written record, and no spoken word, ever made mention of any other alignment than the existing one. At this moment, for example, in 1984 (if it was 1984), Oceania was at war with Eurasia and in alliance with Eastasia. In no public or private utterance was it ever admitted that the three powers had at any time been grouped along different lines. Actually, as Winston well knew, it was only four years since Oceania had been at war with Eastasia and in alliance with Eurasia. But that was merely a piece of furtive knowledge, which he happened to possess because his memory was not satisfactorily under control. Officially the change of partners had never happened. Oceania was at war with Eurasia: therefore Oceania had always been at war with Eurasia. The enemy of the moment always represented absolute evil, and it followed that any past or future agreement with him was impossible.”

(For as long as Winston can recall, Oceania has been in a constant state of war – with whom it was at war is of neither importance nor consequence.)

Quote by Admin. ” As long as a nation has a common enemy outside its border, it never looks for the enemy within. It is safest to keep the two minutes of hate drawn outwards than inwards towards the inner party. The enemy  we all know as Big Brother.”

Tuesday the Norse and Roman Days of the week and the origin of their names.

TYR’S DAY

tyrsday

Tuesday- comes from the Old English term of “Tiwesdaeg”  (Tyr’s Day) Tyr the god of Honour and Justice. Try is the glorious Nordic God of single combat and bold heroic glory in Norse Mythology. The name is based on Latin dies Martis (Day of Mars). Mars was the Roman god of war.

Now Tyr is a very special god, his offer of self-sacrifice is to forever be remembered and cherished. Tyr lost his hand to giant wolf Fenrir so the Giant wolf could be bound. More on that another day.

Why are so many followers of the old ways are “solitarty pracitioners”

 solitary

Several people have asked and myself at one time why so many followers of the old ways are “solitary practitioners” or working in clans of one or two families.

The current “crisis” for our people, in my humble opinion is a good thing from a perspective of separating the wheat from the chaff. If someone wants to engage in homosexuality, race mixing, universalism, christianity, etc; let them, just ask them to remove their presence from our sight. Turn your backs on them and spare no further thought. These behaviors remove them from our numbers, permanently. As they have engaged in these behaviors they have lost their honor, their hamingja and shall not be reborn with the rest of us honorable Europeans.

          The use of force and fear are kosher methods of control that have been used against us by our enemies all too many times throughout recent and ancient history and we lessen ourselves by engaging in the same. It is beneath us. Once this society of decadence has used itself up and falls, we shall we retrieve our kindred from their strongholds and places of power in the wilderness, dust off the golden tablets beneath Yggdrasil and rebuild for our people a new society forged in the values of our forebears and strengthened by our iron will. We cannot “save” any of them, nor anything from this society. It is sick, based in greed and avarice of foreign desert religions and their hunger for power. The “long walk through the institutions” has done irreparable damage to these misguided individuals. Often times a surgeon must cut in order to heal and I am sorry to say that a lot of our people will not be joining us in the new dawn of Europe as a genetic term. We only want those who are willing to remake themselves in the image of the gods of our folk, who are willing to stand up and do what is best for our people without thought of the cost. These are the men and women who will rebuild, there can be no room for the weak of mind, body or spirit.

   Time wasted arguing these points is time that would have been better spent studying runes, the eddas or learning skills to survive after the fall. Or better yet, time spent learning how to or taking action to quicken/deepen the fall of the decadent empire. There will not be a political solution available, EVER. Mantras of fourteen words or the idolization of twentieth century politics is the same as pushing a wet noodle uphill. The “left wing” and “right wing” are attached to the same vulture, and controlled by its masters. The only political solution is to snap its neck and throw the carcass in the flames. Trump, Duke, LePen, Putin and all their kind are lackeys of the system and will only serve it in the end. Our enemies are patient, they have spent generations blueprinting our destruction and are the puppeteers behind both sides. Divide and conquer is their favored tactic and they have mastered it. We must be willing to do the same no matter how many lifetimes it takes. They will lose in the end, Europe has awakened and the long nightmare of this world is nearing its end. We shall triumph in the end, we are the gods, and they are us. Live honorably, die honorably and you will be reborn into the kindred.

Long live Europa! HailaR WodanaR!

Norse and Roman Days of the week and the origin of their names. Monday

Monday  Moon Day

Lesson  2 Monday, This by far may be the most hated day of the week to more people than I can even count. Monday is Moon Day.  Yes,  you understood that correct, the same moon in the sky that is visible all over the earth. It come from the old English “Monandaeg” day of the moon and it is a translation from the Latin name dies Lunea. Monday is the first day of the work week. Like Sunday, it’s named after an object the Romans saw in the night sky, and being the second day of the week, they named it after the second biggest thing they saw when looking up

Norse and Roman Days of the week and the origin of their names. Sunday

sunday

For many men and women the Order of Odalists, may be their first introduction to the study of the Norse Heathenry. So we are creating this as an introductory lesson. This small example will show you just one of the many ways the Abrahamic faith, is nothing more but a recreation and theft of ancient Pagan beliefs, rituals, and holidays.

Now the days of the week are just one of the many things that we take for granted.  Do you really know what the days mean? Well give the Order of Odalists a few minutes of you time and you will learn. Maybe the blinders will begin to be removed from your eyes. Does the Bible not say, John 8:32 Seek the truth and you shall see, the truth will set you free? Are you ready for some freedom?

Lesson 1.) The Days of the week. 

How did those days get their names? You may be surprised to find out they are days to worship Roman and Heathen Gods. The Heathen Viking were the last pagan to convert to Christianity, or shall we say… be forced by the sword? The Catholic church was very clever in the way that they weave their web.

Sunday.  Is pretty easy, it comes from the Old English “Sunnandaeg” Day of the sun. Sun worship was one of the biggest rituals to exists since the dawn of time. So this makes sense as the 1st day of the week.
