On My Latest Project

Posted on April 2, 2009 at 9:28pm 0 Comments

So, because I don't have enough to do :) I'm a full-time writer. Except the past year or so I haven't been writing as much as reading, and note-taking, and, in short, researching.

Then I realized that what I had thought was one book was really three. This happens, but it still set me back a bit.

THEN I stared for awhile, overwhelmed. Then I got to outlining, and then stared some more.

Well, now I'm writing. Right now I'm basically blocking chapters with the… Continue

Thoughts on Godhar/Gythjur

Posted on December 5, 2008 at 7:32pm 0 Comments

Let me start off, O Gentle Reader, with a caveat and a definition. First, the caveat: I'm likely to sound a little bit Cranky with this blog post. You'll probaby see why, but I figured I should let you know at the outset, so you can skip right along if you don't want to hear it. Fair's fair. Second, the definition: Godhar is the plural of godhi; gythjur is the plural of gythja. Both refer to a very specific sort of leader in pre-Christian Iceland (and even a bit after), in charge of both the… Continue

Yule and Developing Traditions

Posted on November 14, 2008 at 8:25pm 1 Comment

The air grows crisp (well, aside from today, when it's been a murky-humid fifty degrees or so) and the holidays approach...

Yule is one of the most important - if not THE most important - heathen holy days. We have mention of it in all of our source material. It's a multi-day affair, generally beginning with mother's night and ending twelve days later (well, where did you THINK the 12 days of Christmas came from?), or beginning on the solstice and ending twelve days later, or even… Continue

Father of Storms

Posted on November 4, 2008 at 4:35pm 2 Comments

Father of storms can you hear me?

As into this battle I roar

Come tonight I shall sup in Valhalla

And raise horns with my kinsmen once more.

I have followed my lord, I have been a true man

I have taken and traded, I’m strong

I have thralls of my own, I have good farming land

I’m a warrior of no small renown.

Father of storms can you hear me?

That’s my husband you host in your hall

You have taken him far from his family

There’s… Continue

Oaths and Oathbreaking

Posted on October 28, 2008 at 2:50pm 0 Comments

This is one I've been mulling over in my head for awhile, and Skallagrimsson mentioned it in another blog post I wrote, so I thought I would blog out some of my thoughts...

Let's start here:

In Asatru/heathenry, one of the most important factors is Reputation. There are those who feel that this is because we come from a shame-based society, but I disagree with them. We are really a *reputation* based society. Considering ourselves shame-based means we focus on shame and/or… Continue

From Catholicism to Asatru

Posted on September 29, 2008 at 1:10pm 12 Comments

This article, by Ingiborg, tells of her story from Christianity to Asatru:

And reading it inspired me to put my own story in place on my blog. In some ways my tale is very similar to anyone who came from a monotheist faith into paganism/heathenry, and in some ways it varies - a thing I suppose we can all say, really. In any event, I don't hide much anymore, and I've told this tale in various other places, so why not do it… Continue

Learn to Breathe and Call Me in a Year...on Teaching Esotera

Posted on September 26, 2008 at 12:03am 0 Comments

We can probably also call this "The Seidhwoman Rants," but there's a lovely gentleman whose website is titled 'The Seidhman Rants' and I don't want o confuse me with him - nor to confuse you, Gentle Reader, any more than I already do...

For those new to me and this blog, I have been doing "the spooky mambo" for a long time. I had my first full-on possessory experience at age twelve. I'm a natural medium, and an empath. I've got the raw psychic that comes from prophetic dreams,… Continue

An Animist/Heathen Approach to Storms

Posted on September 6, 2008 at 3:17pm 3 Comments

This is going to have to be brief - unless I type fast - because Tropical Storm Hannah is travelling up-coast and I, suspicious of all technology, want to be off the computer before she arrives. Still - if you'll pardon the pun this has been swirling through my head these past few days, and it's a topic that comes up again and again (at least, in my brain it does!).

I once had an atheist friend of mine ask me if I thought thunder was Thor killing giants, or if I thought it was a… Continue

East Coast Thing 2008

Posted on August 26, 2008 at 2:01pm 2 Comments

This was the TENTH annual East Coast Thing. I'm proud to have been there, and as always am amazed by our local community.

I can only give highlights here - it's an event you have to be at to understand - but hopefully this will give a good flavor for our community-based religion.


Arrived early to lots of welcoming hugs. Set up the Freyja shrine next to the Uppsala Ve - Raven Kindred North (the host kindred this year) raised carved god-posts of Thor,… Continue

The Freyja Shrine

Posted on August 18, 2008 at 1:32pm 4 Comments

A bit of history...

Long but not too long ago, in a mind not terribly far away, there formed an Idea...

Denise Bowen, a good friend, bear-sister, and awesome fellow heathen, wanted to create a special something for Freyja. I'll leave all the details as to why and how that happened to her, since it's her story, but I will say this - Denise now has a loving husband and a fantastic son. Mmm-hmm, she says knowingly. In any event, Denise Bowen created the first incarnation of… Continue
