YGGDRASIL - The Cosmic World Tree - The Tree of Life






vid descr
Yggdrasil is the tree of life in Norse mythology, the tree stands in the middle of the world. Only the Gods and Goddesses can see Yggdrasil, because the tree is invisible to everyone else. The tree Yggdrasil holds all the nine worlds in its branches.
norse-mythology.net/yggdrasil-in-norse-mythology/







The Upper Level

- Asgard – Located at the very top of Yggdrasil, Asgard is the home of two races of Gods, the Aesir and the Vanir. All of the Gods in Asgard have their own great halls. The greatest of them is Valhalla, the hall for slain heroes.
- Vanaheim – The Vanir lived in this realm while they were at war with the Aesir. Since the Gods made peace, the Vanir have lived in Asgard.
- Alfheim – The land of the light elves.


The Middle Level

- Midgard – This is the realm that we all know, the land of Earth and mankind. There is a bridge of a rainbow between Midgard and Asgard, called Bifrost.
- Jotenheim – An icy land of the frost giants.
- Nidavellir – Realm of the dwarves.
- Svartalfheim – Land of dark elves.
- Muspelheim – The fire giants live here, and it is one of these giants that will set the world ablaze at Ragnarok.


The Lower Level

- Niflheim – The roots of Yggdrasil emerge in this cold and dark underworld. The goddess Hel rules here, from her hall Eljudnir. Sometimes this realm is actually called Hel, and some sources consider Niflheim and Hel to be two distinct lands of the underworld.

You may want to look at the story of Gilgamesh which so much of the jewish tradition is stolen/built up from, How he travelled to the forests of the north to gain knowledge and cut down trees.

The conflict of desert and forest people is very old.

For me I see a (((people))) with hatred, driven by envy being their whole motivation.

Gilgamesh and Enkidu journey to the Cedar Forest. Every few days they camp on a mountain, and perform a dream ritual. Gilgamesh has five terrifying dreams about falling mountains, thunderstorms, wild bulls, and a thunderbird that breathes fire. Despite similarities between his dream figures and earlier descriptions of Humbaba, Enkidu interprets these dreams as good omens, and denies that the frightening images represent the forest guardian. As they approach the cedar mountain, they hear Humbaba bellowing, and have to encourage each other not to be afraid.

The heroes enter the cedar forest. Humbaba, the guardian of the Cedar Forest, insults and threatens them. He accuses Enkidu of betrayal, and vows to disembowel Gilgamesh and feed his flesh to the birds. Gilgamesh is afraid, but with some encouraging words from Enkidu the battle commences. The mountains quake with the tumult and the sky turns black. The god Shamash sends 13 winds to bind Humbaba, and he is captured. The monster pleads for his life, and Gilgamesh pities him. He offers Gilgamesh to be king of the forest, he will cut the trees for him, and be his slave. Enkidu, however, is enraged and asks Gilgamesh to kill the beast, because he knows that Humbaba is lying. Humbaba curses them both and Gilgamesh dispatches him with a blow to the neck. The two heroes cut down many cedars, including a gigantic tree that Enkidu plans to fashion into a gate for the temple of Enlil. They build a raft and return home along the Euphrates with the giant tree and the head of Humbaba.
From Wiki

My interpretation
They knew they were to commit an outrage. thus the dreams. They Kill the guardian of the forest however he pleads. They build the entrance to their temple, with the destruction of nature, Later Enlil has to die for the crime, Enil represents the animal natural side of the people, this is the rejection of nature in favour of Gilgamesh's wish to create an unnatural eternal. The foundation of the eternal city and the desert peoples unnatural religion and ways and the hate of the natural peoples of the north (((they will never give quarter))) are all represented in this story.

An ash I know there stands,
Yggdrasill is its name,
a tall tree, showered
with shining loam.
From there come the dews
that drop in the valleys.
It stands forever green over
Urðr's well.


Eine Esche weiß ich,

Den hohen Baum
netzt weißer Nebel;
Davon kommt der Tau,
der in die Täler fällt.
Immergrün steht er

“Our natural magic is but the ancient religion of the world - the ancient worship of nature.”

-W.B. Yeats


Among its neighboring isles and the rest of Western Europe, Ireland was one of the last pagan lands. And although today Ireland is Catholic by majority, Irish communities still shimmer with remnants of their pagan past. After all, the old religion is the native religion and had been, in varied forms, for centuries before the 5th century AD, when Christianity became widespread, and indeed centuries more before Celtic society, or written language for that matter, existed at all. From festivals to deities, to common customs and traditions, the native religion of Europe, paganism, that is simply non-Abrahamic in this context, didn’t die out in the 5th century. On the contrary, it is alive and well in Europeans to this day, and the Irish perhaps exceptionally so. The nationalist poet W.B. Yeats called for a return to Celtic values in the 20th century and wrote to romanticize a distinctive Irish nature by summoning spirits of old. He did this- as other European nationalists have- not to make a body of work equal to a museum exhibit but to demonstrate the perceived need for a tribe to embrace themselves as they once had. This philosophy, however, clashes with the Christian veneration of altruism and has since had difficulty regaining traction because of this. In a critical essay of Yeats, George Orwell points out “the profound hostility to the Christian ethical code” of the implications of Yeats’s proposed return to nature.[2]

The many tribes of Europe, ie. Norse, Germanic, Greek, Roman, Slavic, Celtic, Iberian, and so on, once had gods to represent the forces of nature that surrounded them, and as opposed to the Christian linear worldview of a beginning, an end, and a heavenly afterlife for well-to-do devotees, pagans had a circular worldview with no beginning nor end, and inter-tribal rebirth for honorable individuals.[3] Moreover, not only were pagan tribes devoted to the worship of nature but had a profound understanding of nature, represented by, for example, complex Celtic road systems based on the movement of the sun. While nature worship is implied by the nonexistence of modern science and technology, it’s also demonstrated in the concept of rebirth, wherein the protection of nature and the building of legacies have more vitality. Similar religions, those polytheistic and in praise of nature, existed all over the ancient world; today, Hinduism is the most similar religion to the Indo-European still widely practiced and officially recognized as a system and culture comparable to that of the Celts. Between all polytheistic tribes, specifically those of Europe, gods were in many cases analogous: comparative mythology shows us that the Roman goddess Venus is Aphrodite to the Greeks. Baldr, the Scandinavian deity of light is represented by Belenus to Celts. When in Gaul, Julius Ceasar was able to identify the “most worshiped” deity among the Celts as Mercury,[4] the god of guidance in travels, truth, and good fortune, which for the Celts is Lugh, the sun god.

Assumedly a result of Europeans’ lack of willingness to part with age-old traditions, and also tactful syncretism used by Christians, many aspects of paganism became part of what we now conceive to be Christian. Even if the original significance of pagan customs has been nullified or forgotten en masse over time, they are still widely recognized- some, like seasonal celebrations, more overtly than others. Evidence for this phenomenon lies partly in the shift in strategy of the Church from destruction to conciliation of pagans. Epona, the Celtic horse goddess, for example, was replaced by St. Martin, a Roman who’s life in the 4th century AD was devoted to the destruction of pagan temples and holy sites in Gaul or modern day France.[5] The most recognizable Christian adoption of a pagan deity is, of course, Santa Claus, wholly a figure of Scandinavian lore. His image hardly revised, Christians simply renamed him after St. Nicolas, a Greek saint from Byzantium. Santa Claus, however, is merely one detail of the Yule festival, analogous to the Winter solstice, from which Christians adopted the reindeer, pine trees, gifts to children, the divine child, AKA every significant and cherished feature of the so-called Christmas.[6] When one connects the dots of the old festivals, suddenly all the seemingly ornamental aspects of Christian holidays have meaning- and the festivals themselves, rooted in human nature and its environment, come to life when the foreign elements are removed.

Another example is Halloween, which is derived from the Celtic festival of Samhain at the Autumn equinox. Today it has degenerated into mere costume and candy purchasing for many, but at its root, adhering to the pagan circular worldview represented by the changing seasons, Samhain represented the end of the harvest and is associated with death and the return of the dead from the ‘other world.’ Even in its Christianized version, Halloween is a celebration of holy individuals who have passed on- this pagan ideal has steadily remained intact- however, the ways in which the honorable dead are remembered have lost their importance. In Celtic tribes, Samhain marked the opportunity for the dead to ‘reincarnate’ through newly initiated children, starting again the life cycle, which follows the stages of death, dying, and life. On the eve of November 1st, children of a certain age or point of maturity entered burial mounds, overcame a series of set obstacles, and if successful ‘became’ one of their dead ancestors, therefore embodying the concept of reincarnation by inheriting the name and belongings of the dead at the winter solstice, that is, the modern day Christmas. The customs of Samhain aren’t as abstract or grotesque as they appear in textbooks and mythology; in other words, the ghosts and goblins described in myths were not merely imagined- they were realized through reenactment, ritual, and purposeful customs which are still more or less symbolically practiced when children dress up as the dead, as they once would have done during their entry into the burial mound.[7] Perhaps Halloween is the ‘most pagan’ holiday still celebrated because it was the Irish American immigrants- those “natural visionaries”[8] from the countryside- who popularized its modern version.

In the case of Samhain, passage tombs, or burial mounds played a significant role. In County Meath near the river Boyne, a burial mound on the Hill of Tara, ‘Mound of the Hostages,’ is illuminated each year by the sunrise on Samhain.[9] This specific mound is dated at approximately 3,000 BC, making it a holy site that predated Celts. Burial mounds are gravelike megalithic structures have mostly been discovered in Western European countries, save the exception of Scandinavia in the north. In Ireland, there are about 300 recorded of them (not including the various other types of ancient monuments).[10] They are circular in shape, typically placed on the top of a hill overlooking land, and in many cases are surrounded, in a circular fashion, by smaller mounds, similar to the layout of the Egyptian pyramids at Giza.[11] Within the burial mounds were contents similar to what is associated with Egyptian tombs as well, that is, household items, tools, ornamental jewelry and clothing, and in Ireland’s case spiral designs on walls and stones done in a uniquely Celtic style. It is speculated that these goods were placed for the dead in ‘afterlife,’ but it makes more sense in the context of the festivals and beliefs of ancients that the grave goods were meant for the inheritor, or the child who symbolically becomes the dead upon successful initiation. Perhaps ‘grave robbery’ was not such a widespread phenomenon- instead, these excavated tombs were sites of initiation rituals.

At the peak of Celtic influence in Europe, Celts existed as far East as modern Turkey, as far north as Belgium, down to the Iberian Peninsula (modern-day Spain/Portugal) in the south[12] and “had more influence over the actions of individual states than the United Nations does today.”[13] It, however, lasted longest in pure form in Ireland, and arguably developed most prominently there. Until the fifth century AD and perhaps longer in hidden corners of Ireland, Celtic culture was the prominent one. The same cannot be said of lands close by, namely Gaul and Britain, that had been Christianized centuries before. Furthermore, Gaelic is the earliest form of recorded Celtic language, and therefore historians refer usually to ancient Ireland when discussing Celtic culture or society, as is most common in everyday historical conversation: when one thinks of the Celts, one thinks of Ireland and its neighboring Isles.[14] Its isolation as an island distantly westward from the Roman empire (by which it was never conquered) also contributed to its peoples’ way of life surviving long enough in Ireland that its influence isn’t wholly intangible or defined by Christian revision.[15] Well built Druidic temples, for example, were simply made into parishes, while “religious functions” of this Celtic priest class such as “consecrating temples, measuring boundaries, [and] counselling kings…were absorbed rather than abolished by the Church,”[16] which could in part explain the unique lack of bloodshed in Ireland’s conversion to Christianity. While Christians occupied holy sites dedicated to Lugh and renamed them in honor of a St. Luc and the Celtic goddess Brigid became a patron saint, her day of worship falling still on Imbolc,[17] one of the four seasonal Celtic festivals including Samhain as previously mentioned, such a process, by contrast, did not take place during the Scandinavian conversion which happened centuries later, over a shorter period of time, being less inclusive to deities like Óðinn and Þórr. This could be explained in part by the observable difference of Iron Age Scandinavian society from that of the Celts- they lacked a class system which for Ireland was vital to the lasting influence of the European worldview. The Druids, a high class of spiritual, educational, and political leaders and lawmakers, were the backbone of Celtic society, comparable to Hindu Brahmans.

The Druidic education was a twenty-year program based on oration and repetition with the philosophy that one can ‘burn a library, but not a people’ and that it only the most well-trained and disciplined mind would be able to store and recite information. When looked at objectively or in relation to nature, the impression of mystery so commonly experienced in reference to the Druids and Celtic society loses its prominence- on the contrary, what exists of Druidic history can inspire a grounded, realistic awe. Furthermore, outside of verses and law codes, which, like fairy tales, organically developed among people, Druids used Greek letters “for public and private affairs”[18] which goes to prove Celts were not an illiterate race, instead, they simply cherished their doctrine and wished to avoid it from landing in the hands of an enemy. Therefore, literature from Pagan-era Ireland is scarce, and what is available (fairy tales, legends, et cetera) was written down by monks who had already become Christian. These factors, naturally, are the basis for the mystique that surrounds Druids and pagan culture in general. We have artifacts, even corpses preserved in bogs, but the lack of literature makes for lofty scholarship, most of which sees Paganism and the Druids through the lens of Christianity. Whether or not the author is either Christian (or Jewish, or Muslim)- it is an Abrahamic culture in which he is researching and writing. One must use his common sense to cultivate his own theories that tie together loose ends of pre-history.

Regardless, only the remains of pre-Christian traditions are still recognizable today, and reviving them would only be possible after centuries of living tribally- simply an unforeseeable possibility in the current state of the world. Therefore, while the ability to connect dots of the ancient past through study and speculation is important, it seems more pressing to first identify and expand upon the Celtic spirit that still exists within historically Celtic people. This effort was undertaken by Yeats in the early 20th century alongside the Irish Nationalists’ push for independence from Britain, that is, while war waged, Yeats worked in the cultural realm; it has been said after all that ‘politics is downstream from culture.’ An Irishman himself, Yeats was able to recognize a distinctly Irish spiritual culture outside of the cities, which was and still is the vast majority of Ireland. He revered the fairy folklore and legends of the peasants and was part of the effort to record and publish them. Furthermore, Yeats admitted he was glad that the native Irish ways were preserved “by literature rather than science” in that “the very voice of the people, the very pulse of life” is captured instead of each ancient tendency toward superstition being explained coldly with charts and translations.[19] In the spirit of the Nationalist movement of the time, Yeats made a point of distinguishing Irish folk from the British as well, mentioning in his introduction to Fairy and Folk Tales of the Irish Peasantry the close vicinity in which the so-called fairies, changelings, ghosts, leprechauns, pookas, and banshees existed with the people. The ‘little people’ of the ‘other world’ lived amongst them, just as the gods lived among the people in all of Ancient Europe. However, in Yeats’s time, “nobody ever laid new milk on their doorstep for them” except for the Irish.[20] After centuries of persecution and up to the present day, the divine simplicity of the Irish peasantry lends itself to the survival of their native worldview, even through Catholicism.

Without being a theologian, one can notice the most pagan influence in Catholic peoples- specifically Irish Catholics, in comparison to their British Protestant counterparts, for example. They practice devotion to an array of saints, display idols in their homes, and generally, have more religious communities. This is so for a multitude of reasons- namely, their lack of Roman rule, their isolation as an island, and most importantly, their distinct nature. Historically, Ireland falls approximately fifty-or-so years behind the reformations of neighboring states. That is to say, the Irish are a people who operate amongst themselves, within themselves, and in accordance to the spirits that encompass them. The British, in their spirit of conquest, and excusable snobbishness, have clashed with the Irish over these differences of character as two brothers might. However- they are brothers- and if it was Britain, a less zealous people in superstition, who brought Ireland kicking and screaming into modernity, then perhaps it is the duty of Ireland to plant its feet in the soil and allow Britain to go no further, without righteous assessment, into a new modernity that ensures the complete dispossession of its native people.

Today, many sects of so-called neo-pagan and occultism exist, most of which confuse heathenism with hedonism, so to speak, and adopt a random amalgamation of world religions based on the same flimsy attraction one would have to a brand of soda or beer in order to “act in non-Christian fashion” and to ‘find themselves’ through self-indulgence.[21] This, needless to say, dampers the popular opinion towards paganism- but a single generation of well-disciplined youth in search of rooted identity could rekindle a native spirit in a time where spirit, identity, and faith are widely lacking in Europe. Not to proclaim, of course, a return to pre-scientific ignorance or irrational prejudice- simply a collective embrace of native Europeanness- one potential route being the way of pre-Christian Ireland, which even the countryside of today’s Ireland sparkles with. Although Ireland became independent, it’s own nation, through the efforts of nationalists of Yeats’s time, the modern socio-political and cultural landscape remains a threat to the “realistic naturalism” once possessed by the Celts. That is, “[the] love of nature for herself, [the] vivid feeling for her magic, commingled with the melancholy a man knows when he is face to face with her, and thinks he hears her communing with him about his origin and his destiny.”[22] Ancient Europeans inarguably had something we lack, which is the wisdom of barbarians- those who place themselves, as men, in the same plane as animals, spirits, and nature herself- and don’t deny themselves the ability to become godlike through honor and reverence. The pre-Christian Irish folk adhered to this natural doctrine in a uniquely charmed an unassuming fashion- which is exactly what kept them from the otherwise merciless sword of Christianity- and is indeed precisely why that doctrine is still animated in the blood of historically Celtic peoples.

Samhain Lore and Poetry :right: www.renegadetribune.com/samhain-lore-poetry/








Honoring the Ancestors


Once again, Samhain, or “Halloween” as it is known in modern society, approaches. The ancient pagan Europeans understood this to be a time when “the Veil” was particularly thin, and the spirits of the Otherworld were easier to communicate with. This was also a time when the dead were honored. People would pay tribute to their ancestors and commune with them. This was a time of feasting and celebration in honor of those who came before us – those who made it possible for us to be here now. It is a time when we meditate on how it is that our ancestors never really leave us.

Yule: Birth of the Sun God(dess)


"I saw the Sun and it seemed to me I was seeing a glorious goddess; To Her I bowed for one last time in this world of Time.”

– Sólarljód – the Song of the Sun st. 41

Over the years I have found myself time and again delving into the ancient Celtic holy days as a part of an intrinsic desire to further connect with my Scots-Gaelic (and probably Gallic) roots, which I see as part of my personal spiritual practice. Yet I am also a large part English, which is a component I had never really honored in the past. This is no doubt due to some anti-English sentiments I have felt because of the horrifically oppressive and even genocidal treatment of my Scottish and Irish folk at the hands of the English, a disdain for the seemingly degenerate monarchy that arose post-Norman conquest, and a general contempt for the British Empire. Interestingly I had ancestors that fought for the Colonists as well as an ancestor who was a major British general during the American Revolution. Personally, I feel that these ancestral “brothers’ wars” have an effect on us at a genetic and soul level, creating a source of internal division and conflict to be worked through.

First of all, a religion and what men have called God by many names over countless centuries are not the same. The simple fact that different religions have opposing beliefs is incontrovertible evidence that religions are the inventions of men, not the work of a higher power that mortals call God. Religions are created by men for specific purposes, always involving control or guidance of those to whom it is disseminated. That control or guidance may be for the benefit, or enslavement of the targeted population, depending on the design of the religion’s creators, the motives of its agents and the vagaries of historical circumstance. The major religions have all been created by the Adepts in the ancient “Mysteries,” so they incorporate similar structures. One of many examples being the 12 + 1: Odin with 12 Brothers of Zeus with 12 lesser deities at a given time, or Mithra or Jove, etc. In the alien religion forced upon our people, Israel has 12 tribes, and Jesus has 12 disciples. In all cases it represents the sun and 12 signs of the Zodiac to the insiders. Of course that’s also why Christmas is at the Winter Solstice of the sun, and Easter is at a designated time after the Spring Equinox of the sun. It is astrology and sun worship to the powers behind the scene. (...)

That overwhelming sex drive of the male must be directed toward women of their own folk. (...)

Finally, we must recognize the power of symbolism in our nature or indigenous religion. It appeals to our warrior soul, both through genetic memory and through its overt character. The three great movements of the last 2500 years have all been religious movements — Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. The first allowed the Son of Muspell to conquer and rule the world and sentence our folk to extinction. There is no greater power than a religion. We must now embrace a natural religion, true to the laws of nature and nature’s God, with the fanatical dedication of desperation. That religion is Wotanism!

It’s shows like these that give nourishment to my soul – especially during these dark months ( and times! ) Thank you Steed and HV for this very interesting information. It provides you with so much to contemplate.

Happy Mother’s Night, to our wonderful ladies. Whether you have children or not, you are still a mother to all of us. We are nothing without you.

Merry Yule to all Renegades for Thorsday 21st. Gain strength and courage from our sun; we will need it in the coming months.

Hail Victory!
