As someone who is exploring their spirituality, if anyone out there could link me could resources on germanic neopaganism or just like/reblog this so I can follow you that would be lovely

(For background info; I thought of myself as wiccan but it didn’t fit and I tried more general pagan beliefs and that didn’t fit either but I have strong feelings about this so I know some basics)

Dauðra Dura - VI & VII
In old norse religion, it is believed that if you need to find answers which cannot be found in this life, you have to seek and acquire them from the realm of the dead. The most known gate into that realm is through the graves of the glorious dead. All the pictures of this album - Doors of the dead - have been taken at various gravefields in Sweden.

"There sits Sigurdr
Blood-besprinkled,
Fáfnir’s heart
With flame he roasteth:
Wise seemed to me
The Spoiler of Rings
If the gleaming
Life-fibre he ate.

There lies Reginn—sang another—
Rede he ponders,
Would betray the youth
Who trusteth in him:
In his wrath he plots
Wrong accusation;
The smith of bale
Would avenge his brother.”
— Prose Edda, Skaldskaprmal

Don't keep the Gods trapped in the past!

You know what I want to see more of? Images of our gods in the modern age. They’re not just our ancestors’ gods, they’re ours too.

I want to see Freyr blessing migrant farmer laborers. I want to see Freyja watching over sex workers. I want to see Odin camped out under an overpass, swapping stories. I want Tyr marching with protesters and Thor fighting tyrants. I want Frigga as a high powered lady executive or attorney, Eir as a nurse in an overcrowded and underfunded inner city hospital

Our gods our more than gleaming steel and mead halls. Humanity has grown and changed, and of course the gods have come along with us!

Heathen New Year (5th January 2015)

As Sól’s light falls on the final day,
A year on Miðgarðr is washed away,
A brand new chance to show Óðinn my deed,
In Yggdrasil’s branches a new year takes seed,
Hail Frey, prosperity and virility,
Hail Freyja, lust and fertility,
Hail Þórr, strength and protection,
Hail Óðinn, wisdom and intention,
Hail Skaði, valour and redemption,
Hail to the powers as the days start to lengthen.
