Kinsmen, I'm going to briefly expand on a theme that I've covered several times on the blog - and that is on the importance of the plough as an Aryan symbol.
The Plough is a sign which is itself connected to the Swastika - perhaps it is the root of the symbol, as we will later see. The rune which we associate with the plough is the Armanen Ar rune - which is Ger to the Anglo-Saxons and Jera/Yera to the German folk. We find numerous words connected to farming and agriculture that are rooted in the Ar rune, such as acre, arable etc. The very first ploughs used by the ancient Indo-European folk were called Ards - again, the name is rooted to Ar. The Proto-National Socialist and Back-to-the-land movement, the Artaman chose the name for their movement, which was a combine word from Art and Man (Men of the Land). Indeed - I've often wondered if the title 'German' has a similar meaning. We can certainly see a runic element to the word - 'Ger' and 'Man'. This would be the same as Artaman or Armanen - as Ger means the same as Ar.
Farming is what has really separated us from the other races. It was the Aryans (Ar-yan) who invented both farming and the plough. (Though it must be pointed out here that ancient farming was nothing like the modern farming of today, modern farming practises are often cruel and damaging to the environment. Really, we want to adopt an approach to farming which has ecological based methods. We need to follow the pattern laid down by Richard Darré. His Erbhof design protected farmers from the international banker and helped them introduce sustainable practises.
I believe that there may be a cognition between the root Ar and the root Er. If we look at the word acre, we see it is very close to the name of the Saxon field goddess Erce. Tolkien was no doubt aware of this as he used the name 'Arda' to represent the earth - a name clearly based of the Germanic goddess Erda, but using the Ar root.
The Scandinavian word for plough was Arþr - which in English became Arthur. The English christians adopted the name and used it to refer to the Plough constellation - Arthur's Wain, thus replacing the old English pagan name - Woden's Wain. And as we already know, as the constellation rotates around the North sky it forms a Swastika. The swastika is a symbol of Thunor (Thor) which again links back to Ar-Thur or Ar-Thor. As a god of the farmer, Thor is married to Sif, who represents the corn field.
I'm going to go a little of subject here and talk about Sif. In the saga's we find a tale about Sif who loses all her hair, which was cut off by Loki. I believe there is a lesson here on GMO crops and messing with nature in the name of profit. Sif's golden hair represents the golden wheat growing in the fields. The story tells that Loki flirted with Sif but she rejected him. So whilst she slept, Loki cut of all Sif's hair. Of course when Thor found out he attacked Loki, who survived only because he promises to replace the hair with magical gold which would grow just like her original hair. The dwarves fashion a head piece for Sif and Loki's expense - but she is always reminded that the gold wig she wore was vastly inferior to the original. We mess with nature at our own expense.
What does it mean to 'worship' the gods? More often than not the idea of 'worshipping' conjures the images of kneeing before a god - very much in the christian sense of master and slave. I personally see the gods and goddesses a archetypal aspects of nature - nature being the divine and the essence of life being the manifest of Wr.Alda. * These manifestations are the gods and goddesses, hence this is why we see certain myths and legends repeat over and over again throughout time. Time is cyclic. We also have stories and saga's of gods who are born, and others who die, thus even the gods abide the ultimate laws of nature.
So what does it really mean to 'worship' the gods? If we have a look at the Germanic origins of the word 'worship' we see a different meaning to the one which is applied today.The Old English word was worðscip, wurðscip in Anglian, and weorðscipe in West Saxon. This is rooted in the word weorð which meant worthy. Thus to worship the gods meant to be worthy of them, to live a worthy life. Alien is this notion of humbleness and charity to the European! A worthy life is one to strive for!
*...and of course this is why National Socialism is ultimately a spiritual path not a political one as National Socialism is a Worldview which has at its very core the idea of Natural Hierarchy. Ours is a Natural World Order and is in direct opposition to the New World Order.
I've just received an email from youtube that some of my videos are now banned from being viewed in Israel (shock-horror!) While this is certainly no loss whatsoever, they have also been banned in Germany and several other European countries which is a shame. The app 'ummyvideo' can be used to download videos from youtube to your computer, so that when decent videos are posted they can be saved, before they are removed under some false 'hate' charge. Another easy way to save videos from youtube (more of you will know this little trick, but for those who don't) type SS (should be easy to remember) before the word youtube on the navigation bar - you will then be given the option to save it to your computer. for example
I would like to share some ideas regarding the relationship between the Anglo-Saxon Ear rune and the Irminsul. Many folk associate the Irminsul with the Tyr rune and there is a runic aspect to the Irminsul which connects it with Tyr, however I've come to see the Ear rune as the runic Irminsul. The Ear rune itself contains the Tyr (Tiw) rune but with a bend in the arms.
The term Ear derives from the Anglo-Saxon rune Ear, meaning grain or corn (the common English name for wheat). The word varied in English with the Northumbrian term being æher. What we find is that the word Ear has a parallel with Germanic words for Honour. Though I don't think the words directly cognate it shouldn't come as surprise when the term 'Aryan' mean't someone who ploughed the land, as well as 'noble' and 'honour'.
Wheat - Honour
Aar - Eer
Ähre - Ehre
The root word is the Proto-Germanic *akhuz which comes from the PIE word *ak- and this means to 'be sharp', or to 'rise out/up to a point'. Both the Ear rune and Tiw rune have this central point which rises up. It is also a fitting description of a Sword - and we find a connection here to the Ar-Kan Rune Lag rune Cweord, which means Sword. The Ar-Kan rune Cweord rune has the same form as Anglo-Saxon Ear rune.
Both Tiw (Tyr) and the Saxon god Irmin are Sword gods just as they are gods of the World Pillar or Irminsul.
In the emblem of the 24th SS unit Karstjäger we can see the symbol of a Tyr-rune inspired Irminsul but one that has a hilt running across the centre - suggestive of a handle, thus a sword. The unit used a Tyr rune as most of their soldiers came from South Tyrol.
"When we National Socialists speak of a belief in God, we do not mean what naive Christians and their clerical exploiters have in mind. …The power of nature’s law is what we call the omnipotent force or God. …We National Socialists demand of ourselves that we live as naturally as possible, that is to say in accord with the laws of life. The more precisely we understand and observe the laws of nature and of life and the more we keep to them, the more we correspond to the will of this omnipotent force."
Last night I had a deeply symbolic dream - so much so that I can't even begin to decipher all of its meaning.
The Sky was blue and clear, yet I could see the planet Venus shining, and another smaller star slightly above. Eight rays of light shone out of the Planet and I heard a voice from the smaller star tell me that Venus had been tasked with the protection of Hitler - who it seems was still alive. Two women, clothed in traditional German dress were standing in a lake and these two women alone knew the true destiny of Hitler - who appeared to me and spoke of death amongst other things.
I often see images in dreams which stay with me after I wake up, however I was unable to recall the words Hitler spoke in this dream, only that he referred to his own death and that the light of Venus will shine red (?) This is not the first time I have dreamed about Hitler - for I recall a dream I had (many) years ago - when I was a teenager. I have been a National Socialist ever since.
I will meditate and research the symbols further and share any ideas they bring. Heil Hitler!
In this definitive work by author Kristof von Kanwetzburg, the eternal truths of National Socialism are put forward in thirty concise chapters detailing the National Socialist Weltanschauung on everything from Race, Patriarchy, High Culture and High Politics, to Lebensraum, Economics, and Spirituality. But make no mistake, this is no ordinary book for the masses, but rather a Sacred Text for the true National Socialist Kämpfer of the Twenty-First Century… and Beyond...
The Unbroken Warrior, Richard Scutari - retells the glorious story of The Order (Bruders Schweigen) and one of its finest members, Richard Scutari. In its pages, we hear from more than 20 different contributors who have something to say about Richard Scutari and The Order - contributors such as Tom Metzger and Ron McVan. This book contains the writings of Richard Scutari, along with new material that has not yet been seen. Overall, this is a book dedicated to the noble life and actions of Richard Scutari who remains incarcerated because he remains "Unbroken". A must read for the Wotanist Warrior.
I wish you all a happy Sonnenwende! And I give thanks to the Sun-Goddess Sûnna whose light and energy grows our food, feeds our souls and lights our path. Upon this day the killing of Baldaeg is enacted out - that is the slaying of the light. Baldaeg (Balder) is the god of Light, Purity and Youth. He is the suns radiance who is killed by Loki the Joten-Juden.
In the above painting we see two goddesses kneeing at the side of Balder's horse. These are Sûnna and her sister Sinthgunt - goddesses of the Golden Sun and the Black Sun. The inspiration for the painting is from the Merseburg Incantation and within this script there is a clever word play where Balder is called Phol, and thus the foal (horse) himself. He is the dying light - and just like our Noble Race, who sink into the darkness - he will return after the winter sonnenwende, when the sun is reborn, just as our race will Triumph after this sleeping curse* is lifted.
Many of you may be slowly turning away from Red Ice as they transcend from a hard line towards a softer alt-right approach. I still watch their youtube videos if they are centred around our Germanic pagan faith - and I have a lot of respect for Stephen McNallen who has done so much to promote Germanic paganism - so this video may still be of interest to you.
There are a lot of subtle hints within this video with would suggest that the Wotan Network have already stirred a sleeping giant - the use of the Wolf Hook is a prime example of Volkisch Resistance - a symbol of extreme power. The phrase 'Wotan Mit Uns' is a play on the National Socialist 'Gott Mit Uns' and was first revived by the Heathen Front back in the 90's. And we all know who rides within the paintings of Franz von Stuck!
Here in England the Wodenist group Woden's Folk have, for the last 20 years performed rites and blots all around the UK with the intention of awakening the Folk-Spirit and the Will of Woden. I would urge those of you who live in the UK to think able contacting them.
The video above is certainly worth watching - if you are interested in both the Germanic faith of our ancestors and white nationalism/identity, then Woden's Folk and Wotan Network are the type of movements you need to search out.
I have been trying a new runic visualisation which some of you may be interested in. This is really a way to perhaps clear your mind or help 'prepare' your mind for more serious rune working.
The Runes are - Is-Lagu-Wynn-Rad-Beorc - I've used the Anglo-Saxon runes names here, but use the names you are more comfortable with as the rune forms do not change.
As you can see from the animated gif below, each rune evolves from the last. As you visualise the rune encourage the next rune to grow from the last. A very simple runic pattern which could be extended so that the runes rotate around the opposite side of the Beorc rune.

AFTER publishing a popular collection of articles from Sword of Wayland magazine, Black Front Press is now proud to present another selection of features from its esoteric sister-publication, Spear of Woden. Launched in 1998, around the same time that Woden's Folk was founded by Wulf Ingessunu, Spear of Woden has long served as an important contribution to the Germanic Heathen corpus and has built up a formidable reputation as one of the magazines at the very forefront of the English Wodenist revival. The book contains over sixty chapters and subjects include The Secret of Silbury Hill, The Holy Runes: FeUrTh, 33-Day Runic Workout, The Holy Runes, The Willow Tree, The Gift-Goddess, A Call to Action, The Yuletide, The Shadow-Warrior, The Aryan Archetype, The Wolfish-Rage, The Sacred Ring, The Sieðr-Witchcraft, Sig-Tiw, ALU-ULA, The Aryan Sun-Cross, Ancient Wisdom, Hyperborea-Atlantis, The Dream Rune, The Stan Rune, Out of the North, Rudra-Chakrin: 'The Wheel-Turner', The Race of Light & The Race of Darkness, Odin on the World Tree, Archetypes & The Aryan Caste System, Archetypes & the Cweord: The Rune of Sigurd & The Broken Sword, The Saxons, The Sunken Continent, Woden-Lithi, Runes as Symbols, The Prophecy of Sajaha & The Third Sargon, The Volkisch Black Flag, The Maypole, Parsifal: The Third Wave, The Symbel (Part One), A Dream of the Reawakening of the English Folk, The Symbel (Part Two), The Ear-Rune, The Spiral, Thunar as an Archetype, The Shadow-Warrior, Runic Postures, Rad, Robin i' the Hood, Bundish Movement, The Wyn-Rune, The World's Chosen, Sindgund & Hretha, Spiritual Healing, Conscious Awareness, Woden Folk-Religion, The Black Sun: A Simple Analysis, All Gods Are One God, Irmin, Tantra, Tree Meditation, Magical Warfare, Ragnarok and, finally, Road to Valhalla: A Tribute to Jonathan Bowden. The contributors are Wulf Ingessunu, Hamasson, Runebinder, Wotan's Krieger, Steed, Essex Jim, Siegfrith and Mike Smith. In years to come, seekers of mystical wisdom will reflect on this remarkable collection of essays in the way that we presently look back to some of the great runic writings of the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries.
"We will have to deal with Christianity in a tougher way than hitherto. We must settle accounts with this Christianity, this greatest of plagues that could have happened to us in our history, which has weakened us in every conflict. If our generation does not do it then it would I think drag on for a long time. We must overcome it within ourselves"
Tonight will be Walpurgisnacht - a thinly veiled christian and deeply heathen holiday which is observed by many Germanic peoples across Europe, especially the Czechs, Dutch, Estonians, Finns, Germans, Latvians, Lithuanians, Slovenians and Swedes. I'm not sure whether the Germanic English observed this holiday, though we do know that there was an British nun who took the name Saint Walburga, she was born in Devon (southwest England) and travelled to Germany to spread christianity. Like so many other 'saint's' the church deliberately infused pagan lore which christianity in order to spread their influence. This is of course why European christianity is so different to the christianity of South America or Asia.
To us, Walpurga-Walburgis is a Germanic goddess. Her name can mean Val (also Wal, Wael etc. ) 'Slaine' and Burga, hill, mount or castle. She can be seen as a goddess of the burial mound. A goddess who protects the fallen warriors who fall on this night (AH) thus she carries a role similar to that of the Valkyries. But in her name we can see a second meaning. Wal is the root of Wals/Walha or 'foreigner' (it is where the name Wales derives) and Purgis or Purge. The Purge of the Foreigner'. So she can also be seen as a goddess who is invoked to drive the foreign invaders from our shores!
Her holiday is still observed this night. It is connected to the celtic Beltane and the Germanic May day feasts. It is certainly a fire festival, but most of all it is a holiday that celebrates the cult of the Witch.
'Saint' George - the Dragon Slayer, is the christian conversion of our Sigurd~Siegfried, who slays the dragon Fafnir. The church supported observing his day on the 23rd April as it coincided with a pagan holiday celebrated by the Saxon English, that of Green George, a figure with historical roots that parallel the Green Man.
Aryan Sun, shine down on the land;
From icy mountains to margin of sand.
We've dreamed a dream of what must be-
-So open your mind and heaven you'll see.
One people, one blood-community
In roaring forests and on the sea;
The warrior's oath, the mother's smile-
-Soft winds on meadows, mile by mile.
And He is there, behind it all:
Purest Idea, commanding Call.
The fire of His Mind, the blazing eyes,
Gift of the Gods, from bluest skies.
Aryan Sun, shine down on the land;
From icy mountains to margin of sand.
We've dreamed a dream of what must be-
-So open your mind, His heaven you'll see....
This post is going to be a rant!! Thus far I have avoided negative comments on the blog, rather focusing on positive aspects but I have been wanting to write a post on this subject for months, so will use the current Syrian affair to get this subject started. If we look at the photo below we see the Italian nationalist CasaPound flying their flags along with those of Syria - in support of Assad who is fighting radial Islam with the support of Russia. In Germany nationalists are happy to fly the Palestinian flag at marches and rallies. However in England very few nationalists would think of supporting Syria or Palestine. No doubt because they are Muslim countries.
Here we have to look at a bigger picture to see what is going on. If we take the English Nationalist scene (which has almost totally collapsed) they held a civic nationalist view so backwards that they wouldn't even entertain working with Scots or (fellow Saxon) Germans! Their love of all things English mean't zionists like Churchill and Cromwell are hailed as heroes! They clearly learn't nothing from British Nationalism which peaked before it. Luckily the White Dragon symbol which was restored into use by the volkisch Wodenist movement Woden's Folk remains a volkisch symbol despite the civic attempt to alter that. Of course not all nationalist groups in the UK are like that. There are still few who hold volkisch ideologies, however the largest groups have always turned to supporting Israel. We saw this with the EDL, but why? The problem is a form of 'racism' based simply on skin colour. To be honest, the correct description would be 'colourism'. Jews are fine because they appear white, whilst muslims are darker, thus bad. Himmler said 'Germany was the friend of Islam'. Now - Himmler didn't have a one million migrant hoard to contend with, and if he did his view may not have been the same. But the war in Syria and Palestine are not over Islam. These are Nationalist causes. Assad is fighting a Nationalist cause. Nationalists in the West and Nationalists in the East have common enemies - the biggest being international Zionism. We should not confuse support for Assad or Palestine with supporting Islam or immigration because these are two different matters. My view on Islam as a religion is clear. I hold Islam with the same content as Christianity or Judaism -they are alien to the European mindset. And I think everyone who reads my blogs will share the same view as myself on immigration which is - No immigration into Europe - Fortress Europe now! But in regards to the 'colourism' comment I made - I know folk from southern Europe who have dark complexions, but these folk are still European. I have seen jews who are light skinned - but they are still Semitic and never 'white'. I know Indian Sikh's with bright blue eyes thus still carry the Aryan gene's given to them when India was an Aryan country. What matters to us is Race - and sometimes the enemy of our enemy is our friend, even if they are not from our race.
Why is it that Yggdrasil - the World Tree - is often seen as a horse? Many folk even translate the name to mean 'Ygg's Horse'. Ygg is a name used by Odin and Drasill is used to mean Horse.
The most common view is that the World Tree is an Ash tree. Here we may have a very old word play as there are many examples of the word 'Ash' being used as a name or prefix for horse. The (grand)son of Hengest was a king called Oeric. He used the title Oisc which was the same as Aesc which means Ash. Hengest and Horsa were the Anglo-Saxon chieftains who led the Germanic tribes to Britain. We know that Hengest and Horsa were war-titles and not real names, and it seems that Oeric continued this tradition. Hengest means Stallion, Horsa means Horse, as does Ash. To many English Wodenists Hengest and Horsa are viewed as Divine Twins, which itself is a recurring archetypal theme which runs throughout Aryan history. The Horse gods of the Baltic lands are viewed as twins and are called the Ašvieniai, in Aryan-Hindu lore they are called the Ashwins. Both set of names derive from the word Ashva which means Horse. What is interesting is that the word Ashva cognates with the Germanic word Ehwaz which means horse. The Anglo-Saxon word for horse was Eoh, and ēoh means Yew. Further to this the word 'yggia' comes from the root *igwja which again means Yew-Tree. It would seem that both ideas of the World Tree being Ash or Yew derive from older words meaning Horse.
Over on the Inglinga blog Wulf has posted two articles on the Helm of Awe and its connection to the Ario-Hindu Ashtanga Yantra symbol. Steed made an interesting comment regarding the English custom of placing a cartwheel on the side of the house for protection. In fact the Ario-Hindu's use a symbol called the Dharmachakra which is represented as an eight spoked wheel which symbolises the āryāṣṭāṅgamārga (Noble Eightfold Path -notice the root word Arya) - the symbol appearing as an eight spoked cartwheel.
The Sanskrit noun dharma comes from the root dhṛ, which means "to hold, maintain, keep" and takes a meaning of "what is established or firm" and hence "law". It is derived from the Vedic Sanskrit n-stem dharman- with the meaning "bearer, supporter" in the historical Vedic religion conceived of as an aspect of Ṛta. Rta is the root of Rite and Ritual via the word Rit. What is interesting is that this cognates with our own rune Rad (to rotate) which also gives the the words Road, which connects it to the Ashtanga Yantra.
“Halgadom - is the empire of all the Germans. Those who live between the Rhine and the Vistula, between the Baltic and the Alps, are only the heart of an immense territory inhabited by other heirs of ancient Thule. To this Halgadom belong not only the Germans, but also many other Europeans: the Scandinavians, faithful to their Nordic origins; the Netherlanders, more German than the Germans; the British, divided between Celts and Saxons; the French, heirs of the Franks and regenerated by the Normans or the Burgundians; the Italians in whose veins runs the blood of the Lombards; the Spaniards, who still carry many an imprint of the Visigoths. And also the Russians, whose country was founded by Swedish Varegs, those Vikings of the rivers and steppes…”
BORN in 1947, into a working-class family in Leicestershire, Wulf Ingessunu has risen to become the most prominent and well-respected figure in English Wodenism. Dealing with his early background in nationalism, as well as his ultimate disillusionment with party politics, this remarkable book describes the gradual awakening that led the author to embark upon a remarkable quest for self-discipline and personal refinement; both physically and intellectually. Travelling throughout the British Isles in search of ancient ruins and sacred sites, hungry for occult wisdom, Wulf first became involved with the Odinic Rite and then went on to unearth the mystical knowledge which, in 1998, eventually led him to found Woden's Folk. This is a tale of idealism and comradeship, militancy and martial arts, dreams and visions, runes and rituals. The book includes a full index.
Happy Spring! Frohe Frühling! Spring is here which means it's time to get outdoors and plant some seeds!
The name 'Spring' for the season is a newish term. The Old English called this season Lencten, which is where the church got the word Lent from. However this wasn't a christian term but derives from the Germanic *langitinaz meaning long-days. This was a reference to the length of daylight, which is now longer than the period of night. This of course lasts until the Sonnenwende which is the longest day.
I did a google search for an image for the previous post, I was looking for a natural inspired life rune form. The first entry for the search was the ADL's 'hate on display' interpretation of the rune. What do these people know? Who are they to demonise our faith? The runes are manifestations of Aryan Will. They are the Key to the Aryan Psyche. They are rooted in Aryan World History and a Gift from the Aryan-God Odin. The runes are Alien to all other peoples.
So lets ignore what the outsiders tell of our beliefs and have a look at the origins of the meaning of this rune.
The Life rune is widely used and understood to be a symbol of upwards growth, of spirituality awaking and racial well being - hence it became a symbol used by various National Socialist nursing and auxiliary movements prior and during the Second Brothers War.
Life rune emblem upon a red 'A' (for Apotheke or pharmacy)
The rune poems call this rune Algiz and Elhaz, but the most common name for the rune is the Life rune or Lebenrune. The gods bestowed life into our volk, and this is the position we stand in when we face our gods. We never bow or kneel, for we are not slaves nor sheep but equals before our makers. We celebrate life and choose to pursue higher levels of conscience and awareness. God dwells within all life, within our blood and we as Aryans celebrate our connection with the divine by choosing to live as close with nature as we possibly can.
The root of the word Life comes from the Indo-European word *leip, which became the Proto-Germanic *libam. This gives the Germanic world the words Old Norse lif -life, body; Old Frisian and Old Saxon lif - life, person, body; Dutch lijf -body; Old High German lib -life.
Already we can see the two major aspects of the rune - 'Life' and 'the living body'. The German word Leben (life) is rooted in Lieb (body) - thus the rune embodies the holistic and Germanic quality of life, which is living life to your fullest, eating and living a healthy lifestyle, being whole in body and in mind. It is this aspect of the rune that List expanded upon - for the Life rune is the 'Man' rune of Armanen runes. Man is the embodiment of Lieb. Himmler used the Armanen Life rune to remember those SS men who gave their lives to the National Socialist struggle.
“Pagans are those who say Yes to life,
those for whom ‘God’ is the word
that expresses the great Yes to all things.”
I know stories of some people using this rune - invoking this rune - and this is something you should never do lightly. Isa is a powerful rune. Its simplicity is the key here. A single straight stave, the icicle, the individual, being alone, the 'I'. Invoking this rune can leave those who invoke it feeling paranoid as friends and family desert them.
To invoke Isa is to invoke isolation. And this seems to be the very root of the rune. We connect the rune with Ice and the rune poems tell of its icy properties. But this is just a poetic translation, for the harsh winters of the North would have left the families and communities isolated.
Isolated is rooted in 'Isa' and we can see an example in the old French word isolé (Isolate). The word has evolved and used in English in the words isle and island, The name 'Iceland' is probably the best example of how the name invokes both meanings of the root - Icy and Isolated!
I've added a new link here to the Black Order. The original group from NZ was very similar to the White Order of Thule (USA) and I'm sure many readers will be interested in their work. I have some of their early publications somewhere, and will post some photos later.
