"South of Heaven"


Excerpt from pages 56-57 of 'Witchcraft Out of the Shadows - A Complete History' (Leo Ruickbie; 2004):

Christianization did not just reinterpret the witch. We have seen how the witch was already someone in close association with the gods of death and the Underworld. The gods of death and the realm of the dead in Pagan theology were not necessarily evil - death was an accepted and inevitable part of life. However, when the Christians turned the Underworld into the place of eternal damnation ruled over by the fallen angel Lucifer, the witch found herself associating with demons and the souls of the damned. The realm of the ancestors, the home of the dear departed, the place where knowledge could be found and power gained became the dungeon of God and the encampment of evil. Chistianization reinterpreted the entire cosmos. The "birthplace of all sorceries" became the "root of all evil" and East of Midgard became South of Heaven.


The Yoke of the Gospel

In Rome, in 381 CE, the Senate proscribed the "worship of idols" and in Gibbon's memorable phrase Rome submitted to the "yoke of the Gospel." The real turning point occurred in 313, however. It was in that year that the then emperor of Rome, Constantine the Great (274-337), decriminalized Christianity. After a series of battles he seized complete control of the Roman Empire in 324. Constantine was followed by Theodosius in Christian piety, who zealously undertook to stamp out Paganism. The temples were closed and their property seized. The contagion spread throughout the empire. In Gaul, Martin, Bishop of Tours, led and army of monks to destroy the temples, the statues of the gods, and the sacred groves of the Pagans.

The Nebra sky disc
European-Witchcraft was of the folk and the earth

It always bears repeating, again and again, that the pre-Christian, European, magical traditions---or for that matter, any of the earth traditions---had nothing to do with Satanism, Alchemy, Freemasonry, or the mystery schools. I suspect that the conflation of Druidic tradition with the mystery schools was an attempt by people of these secret cults in northwest Europe to tie themselves to their traditions in terms of ancestry. Still, I believe that there were positive aspects of certain Freemasonic groups taking on something of a Druidic style. What I would object to is Satanists obsessing with OUR ancestors' cultural loss and suffering from the Middle Ages. They latched onto our holidays, and conflated themselves with many other facets of the old religion. What could be more antithetical to traditions based on ancestry than Satanism? In that regard, Satanism--which was created first as an imaginary enemy by Christian inquisitors--has a lot more in common with Christianity and Islam.

Moon closer to Earth than at any point between 1948 to 2034.... right now!

Officially, the time for the current Supermoom was  at 8:52 EST this past morning. However, this phase is a very gradual process; and this Full Beaver Moon will be just as bright early this evening, and more bright than it was 24 hours earlier. In other words, pragmatically tonight is the better night to Supermoon gaze; and appropriately on a Monday... "Moon's Day." The Moon has been extremely bright for a number of nights now, and will continue to be for a number of night's more.

'When to watch the closest supermoonWhen to watch the closest supermoon' (Bruce McClure - EarthSky.org - November 13, 2016)

*************************

I've been trying to let people know that the full Moon phase of this supermoon event is a bit deceptive because the Moon is already and has been visibly larger for quite a while now and the full Moon phase is just one day out of this long slow close orbit. People are getting the mistaken impression that the Moon will be somehow extra large just on that one night and that's sad because they could have been enjoying the visibly larger view all along as I have been. I was looking at the Moon last night and the night before that and the night before that... because I've been aware that the Moon's close orbit has been going on for over a week and will continue for quite a while after the full Moon phase as well.

Unfortunately the way this event has been advertised to the public has focused their attention on just one particular day. That's sort of like calling just one day "Summer" when the Earth is exactly in the middle of that season or calling one particular minute of the day "high tide"... it doesn't work that way. These things all gradually come and go over long periods of time.

So wherever you are right now, if you can see the Moon from where you are, enjoy it because you are seeing the supermoon right now and that will also be true tomorrow and the day after that. There's no need for you to stand outside looking at your watch waiting for that exact moment, that moment is now.

Ghost programs and the metaphysical issue: Part 20

'Paranormal Lockdown'

I viewed their 2-hour Halloween special last Monday... an investigation of the "Black Monk House" in Yorkshire, England. Paranormal Lockdown, which first aired in the Spring, is conducted in the investigation style. I wasn't familiar with it since I don't get the Destination America network. Discovery Communications, the parent company, has so many of these channels and programs under it's wing that I'll pass on sorting it all out... but this was aired on The Learning Channel.

Paranormal Lockdown features Katrina Weidman, formerly of 'Paranormal State'.. which was a real pioneer of these programs. Amy Bruni, formerly of 'Ghost Hunters', is now featured on a program called 'Kindred Spirits'. It's nice to see them continuing on with these investigations and studies.

The current "Ghost Nights"... as I've come to call them:

Wednesday (Syfy channel)
Paranormal Witness
Ghost Hunters (11th and final season)

Friday (The Learning Channel)
A Haunting
Kindred Spirits (new)

Saturday (The Travel Channel)
Ghost Adventures
The Dead Files

I know the Destination America network has some of these programs, but I just don't get that channel. 'A Haunting' one the one which really kick-started this whole thing. Actually it was those two pilot episodes back in 2005, which inspired the two movies of the same name ('The Haunting in Connecticut' and 'Ghosts of Georgia') and soon a third ('The Haunting in New York').

The Arctic Home in the Vedas: Part 23 - Was Jötunheim the original Teutonic homeland? II

One obvious question which would seem to come to the fore from this series is, to overstate it a bit, were the proto-Europeans a culture of Matriarchal tree huggers who were invaded by a Patriarchal warrior culture? I would argue essentially yes; although I know that there are many Asatruar who would argue that Asatru--unlike Abrahamic religion--possesses a strong Matriarchal element as well. As bio-spiritual beings, we need both the Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine to flourish as a civilization. Those who invented "Feminism" did so with the idea that it would be a type of controlled opposition; the only game in town. It has operated like a computer virus; evolving over time with unexpected consequences for those who have adopted it. "Feminism" is not feminine, Matriarchal, nor the Divine Feminine. It was constructed to emit male energy, therefore destroying the Divine Feminine. As stated earlier, we all possess aspects of both the Divine Masculine and Feminine. For example, masculine kindness is a positive trait from the Divine Feminine.

There is no evidence that I am aware of, which shows any particular cultural-spiritual conflict as various pre-Christian Indo-European groups came into contact with one another. The various spiritual traditions just seemed to harmoniously merge together. Even the ancient Romans used religious-merger as part of their colonial policy. I know that the Etruscans and Celts engaged in some small skirmishes, and Olympian Greek culture pushed aside the earlier Hekatean tradition. Still, these conflicts--at least in terms of pre-Christian religious traditions--apparently were quite small. Would it be too much of a stretch to state that thousands of years ago, largely Patriarchal Mediterranean and Teutonic cultures migrated into Europe; coming into contact with largely Matriarchal proto-European cultures, which resulted in a very natural merging of the Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine? In other words, for example, could much of the Matriarchal aspect of Asatru be the result of the influence of that ancient cultural-spiritual merger?

Reviewing the discoveries of archeologist Marija Gimbutas, sociologist Theodore Roszak wrote:

In Marija Gimbutas’s influential formulation, it was the Indo-European incursion of warlike Indo-European nomadic tribes, worshippers of masculine sky-gods, that replaced the matricentric cultures of Old Europe with an “androcratic warrior” society and that henceforth claimed all virtues of “civilization” for itself. But before that there had been a “civilization of the goddess" marked by peace and high art. Under the spell of this original version of Gaia, there was even a different kind of "city," one that honored the Earth and rested lightly upon it.

-- 'The Voice of the Earth' (Roszak; 2001)


Even coming from people who may not exactly have our best interests at heart, some truth can come out. Wasn't it really Abrahamic religion which, in it's ever fear of the spiritual and healing power of many women, formed this particular negative-Patriarchy which the world has now witnessed for many centuries? Isn't "Feminism" really just that same negative-Patriarchy for women? Instead of being a Patriarchal Traditionalist or it's like-minded Matrio-Patriarchal daughter.... why not embrace Radical Traditionalism! Our ancestors had already done it, prior to Emperor Constantine's conversion. The merger of the Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine is really a union, and has nothing to do with the daily Rocky Horror Picture Show which so-called Western culture has embraced all-at-once overnight (government, media, education, sports and entertainment, the corporate world, celebrities, etc.). I certainly hope that what we're witnessing is not what the powers-that-be would call an "alchemical wedding." Knowing a little bit about these people, I'm not convinced that it isn't.

I think we can all think of at least a few strong but negative men and women, perhaps mistreated by certain individuals of the opposite sex, who met just the right person with noble qualities and all of their inherent positive instincts came back to them at once. Their dormant instincts were still there, as suddenly they became nurturing protectors after having been so self-destructive, negative, and critical. In the same way that our enemies are a coalition of many incongruent things, loosely tied together by the source of their funding.... we can and should be a coalition of at least different aspects of largely the same essential thing. Through a quirk of history, powerful aspects of both the Divine Masculine and Feminine came together to form the "original Western civilization" of our ancestors... then we were forced to give up the best thing we ever had.

The Arctic Home in the Vedas: Part 22 - Was Jötunheim the original Teutonic homeland?


For the most part, what is today known as the culture of Asatru came into being in northern Europe within the last 3,000 years. For example, prior to about 1,000 BCE, there were no runes carvings. It's at least possible that this culture was actually formed from a fusion between proto-Europeans and the incoming Teutons. Would it be a stretch to speculate that the legend of Jötunheim, and it's giants (the Jötnar), could have originated with the proto-Europeans regarding the early migration of Teutons? The original Teutonic homeland was likely located from the Himalayas to the Arctic Sea, not including later migratory outposts such as ancient Aryan Persia.

The average height of men back then was a little over five feet tall; and I'm guessing that the pure Teutons were at least a foot taller than that on average.... "Giants." I can recall reading of how the Greek Byzantines thought of the Langobards as "giants." Even today, the Dinka tribe in Africa has an average height of about ten inches taller than the surrounding peoples; so there is genetic precedent for this type of height disparity between basically similar peoples. Montenegrins are about seven inches taller on average than their Balkan neighbors. It may sound crazy, but the Teutons could have been 15 inches taller than the proto-Europeans... having now been diffused down to an average of 5'11".

The imcoming Teution warriors must have struck tremendous fear into the proto-Europeans of northern Europe. To put it bluntly... could northern Europe have been "Midgard" and northern Eurasia "Jötunheim"? "Nordic" is a regional ethnographic term, and the traditional Norse are themselves partly descended from proto-Europeans. Aspects from the ancient indigenous people could also have simply merged into what later became Asatru. What may sound sort've odd today, "different" types of Scandinavians, has at least some equivalent examples in northern Europe in the written record. For example, there were different "types" of Irish people a thousand years ago.... some Teutonic, some Atlanto-Mediterranian; some dark haired, some blonde; some tall, some short..... different cultures which later became "the Irish."

The worst and coldest winters blow from Siberia across northern Europe, that is from the east, where the frost-giants waft cold blasts of wind to blacken tender buds and chill the hearts of men, but it was in the far north, where the night reigned longest and the ice never melted that the entrance to Nefl-heim and Angerbode's Ironwood lay. In the psycho-geography of the Other World, Angerbode could be both east of Midgard in Jötunheim and in Ironwood; such was her reputation that she dwelt simultaneously in the world of places.

-- Leo Ruickbie, 'Witchcraft Out of the Shadows' (1988), 'East of Midgard: Witchcraft, Magic and Religion Amongst the Pagan Tribes of Northern Europe', page 43

I'm not suggesting that the entire legend originated with the proto-Europeans, but that certain aspects may have come from their long-ago culture and perspective. Other aspects may have been different. Some may have seen the Teutons as "gods" or some other mystical concept. I suppose that it's even possible that the fantastic Germanic "imagination of itself," from more modern history, may have been a long cultural carryover from the original indigenous people. I suppose that you could say that Dolph Lundgren could be sort've a modern representative of the original Teutonic element, and Mariska Hargitay a modern representative of the proto-European element of northern Europe... a perfect mixture. Even their names give a certain mystical clue; the powerful Teuton and the magical Alpine.

A new Viking song that goes straight into Norse Mythology! It's the longest and most powerful Viking song that I made so far, and we're one step closer again to the video of "1 Hour of Viking Music" that I promised. =) Hey, if you already know what the title means feel yourself high-fived by me, and if you can pronounce it then feel double high-fived!^^


Jötunheimr is the home world of the Giants from Norse Mythology (one of the Nine Worlds, more known worlds are for example Midgard and Asgard). Jötunheimr is definitely one of the lesser known worlds commonly, but for me it was always one of the most fascinating. Therefore since I started making those songs that are focused on Vikings and Norse Mythology I always knew that I would do a song specifically about Jötunheimr one day. And here it is!^^

Ah yes, the voice that you hear in the song is my own, and believe it or not: It's not edited. It's a raw recording, only hall effect was added.^^ People already asked me in the song „Einherjer" whether I edited my voice to make it deeper, but it's naturally like that. Maybe I'll show you once. xD

Also, adding this note again because I want no misunderstandings: (I know many people are very fond of Viking culture -- I'm one of them^^)

People were asking me how would I know what kind of music the Vikings really made, since they are gone since centuries. But I don't claim to know that, what I do is writing ABOUT Vikings.^^ I don't know what they played 1000 years ago, I simply compose music that I personally see fitting to tell tales about them. So if there are Fantasy elements or Film music-like parts included -- that's why.^^ I mostly try to keep it traditional though, as well as my knowledge about it lets me do that. =)

Composed and arranged 100% by myself as always, on keyboard.

*************************

The misty forest gave a sense of foreboding, that the warrior could not disagree with. But, he was a Viking; he would not run just because of the tales women tell while at the spindle. He removed his helmet, setting it down in front of him and drew his sword and a rag, wiping off the dark ichors of the last fight.

Thump.

He heard it, looking up. It was a loud sound, as if a tree fell in the distance. He quietly returned to work on his blade, hand gripping the hilt tightening.

CRACK!

He heard the splintering of a great oak. Closer. He stood, placing his helmet on as a dark shape towered over him in the mist, it was massive, at least as tall as a house. Two piercing white eyes illuminated the fog, watching him. “Norseman...” It rumbled. “These woods are not your place.”

“I shall not be cowed with words!” He declared back, sword in hand, “A brave one too...” The giant mused, cocking it's head. “And meat. There is good meat on you...” It crouched down to get a better look, gripping a tree, the wood straining under it's crushing grip. “What brings you to this cursed wood?” The viking weighed his odds. He had the arrow wounds from the last fight, his shield had been smashed, and his body ached. He smiled grimly.

“Victory, or Valhalla.”
