Valknut: Odin, work, and limits

After all, I’m an Odinsdottir too! Another pice on perspective from a good friend….

mainer74

The Valknut, the tree hangers sign, the nine worlds bound in a single will, the storm given shape, madness given form; the sign of the Victory Father, the Battle Glad, yet also the All Wise, the Wise Counsellor.

I can do reason, and most understand that I reason well, but to me it is a tool to use in its place, not a holy thing that must always be heeded.  Reason knows limits, reason needs information to act.  Reason is a thing of time, good lighting, sufficient information, and plans.  Reason in its place is king.  Behind the king stands a shadow, the shadow of madness.  In the darkness, in the fog, in confusion and fear it dances laughing and roaring in turns, always whirling never stopping.  At the heart of the storm it knows no hesitation, no regret, no remorse.  This is Odin’s place, the place where instinct growls…

4 Reasons Heathens Hate Lokeans: By a Lokean

A very good fried of mine wrote this piece. He nails it. HARD with a very large hammer. Thank you Mikki for your words!

Sacred Iceland will be back to you shortly after this special bulletin, which I fear is going to piss off a lot of people, but I want to say anyway, so please make sure your sense of humor is turned on.

Before too many anti-Loki people jump to “like” this article, and too may pro-Loki people start furiously typing an angry complaint letter to me over its title, let me quickly clarify my stance: I LOVE Loki. I have been a devout Loki worshipper since about 1994, and it was my love for Loki that brought me into Heathenry in the first place. I also love my Heathen community (I’ve been a Troth member since 2006), and have many friends therein of many various theological opinions. It is because I love these two parts of my life that I have grown increasingly concerned with how the definition of “Lokean” (a…

So, It’s been a Year….

WordPress tells me its been a year since i started this blog.  Lovely stuff blogging is. 

 

Many MANY things have happened during that year but at this point i need to address the current situation.  Its NOT good.  And I have not talked about Home stuff here before but I’m in a place of Dire need right now.

 

We moved here last year when my husband was teaching in this school district. He has since changed districts and the property management company (we are on a lease option) has failed to perform a great deal of required repairs and maintenance. Among those things are failure to disclose a sinkhole in the backyard leftover from the conversion of septic to city sewer, failure to repair any of the major plumbing issues – including a major leak from the bathtub onto the top of the water heater, a leak in FROM THE OUTSIDE, faulty duct work, subcontractors poured grout INTO the drains in the bathroom when they did the tile – THIS HAS NEVER BEEN ADDRESSED, failure to put the tile on the wall in the bathroom back in after one minor repair to the drain in the sink (which did not actually fix it). Additionally they have done nothing to actually provide the living space we contracted with them for – they told us we could build out the basement in order to make the home a 3-4 bedroom home instead of the 2 bedroom home it is and was. We cannot build the walls with no electrical outlets, which they said they would put in – but they can’t/won’t until they fix the leaks in the basement which they refuse to address. All this and they are STILL robbing us on rent charging us over 250.00/month MORE than the same 2 bed/1ba in our neighborhood. That coupled with zero transportation options outside of ONE taxi in town which runs a MINIMUM of 7.00 ONE WAY for a trip that is 1.1 mile from home for required medical and mental health appointments makes it simply unaffordable for just about anyone. So we are DONE. We are looking for a home in Lexington where I have access to public transit so I can at least get to my medical appointments.

Below are photos and video of the kinds of issues we are being faced with that necessitate this move.

We NEED to do this over fall break which is the first week of October but we need your help to do this! Please help if you can!

Ethereal Edition: To Sigyn

Beautiful Poem to Sigyn

Kvasir Amongst the Gods

In the writing of my last article, I found myself reflecting on some of the wrongs done to my own person that I have not yet been able to move past.  As I reflected upon this, I feel as though I may have touched upon something deeper and more meaningful.  It is with this thought in mind that I erect the following prayer.


SigynIn loss and in anguish,
In terror and horror,
In loss and betrayal,
You survive.

Your voice has no anger;
Your stance is not martial,
Your eyes are not hardened,
You endure.

There are wounds that Eir cannot see.
There are things that Frey cannot grow.
There are enemies that Thor cannot sunder.
Your frith is constant.

Sigyn, The Bride of Loki,
She that holds venom, yet poisons none.
She that heals what does not bleed.
She that might feel for all pain that she sees.

Lady…
