Light in the Darkness

Light in the Darkness

It is a fact in this world that each year, each day, each hour brings struggle and challenge, whether the ‘enemy’ that we struggle against is without or within. Those who meet the struggles with joy are looked at as heroes and honored by friends and family and perhaps even the greater world as well. May we all show such strength in the face of adversity!

The Word upon the Winds

The Word upon the Winds

by Gothi Arinbjorn OR

When the shaman awoke, he called to the men and women of his tribe, roused them from sleep, and when they had gathered, he danced and sang his dream. His people sat enthralled and when he had finished, they asked what the dance was called. CHANGE! was his answer.

The above is a paraphrasing from The Circle of Ostara’s Odinic Mythology taken from the Myth of the Dawn Time. Continue reading

Shield!

By Anders B AOR

After I’da finished the hammer that were featured on this site a while ago, the itch to make something that were associated with both our ancestral past and our faith got the better of I, and so too, the need to return to me shed in Svartalfheim with me fellow spiritual dwarf smiths.

Resisting the Wolf Age

By Redwald OR

Ostara inspire us!

Ostara inspire us!

By Asrad CG

As the wheel of the year turns and the days grow longer and nights shorter our spirits start to lift. Without knowing darkness we cannot love the light and without experiencing the cold long nights of Winter we surely could not love the Spring and Summer as we do. Knowing and experiencing the harshness of winter means we make the most of the lighter nights and warmer days just as our folk have since the very beginning. Continue reading

Hama Status - A Journey

Hama Status – A Journey

By Redwald OR

It was Woden’s day in Horning 2009 when I performed the inaugural blot to celebrate my newly acquired Hama status – ‘Hama of the Golden Harvest’, named to honour and reflect my rural surroundings. Taking this new step forward, all I had to go on was an instinctive feeling that Odinism was something I felt in my gut rather than read in a book, along with an article by Eowyn OR on the Hama.
