The Raven's Song

Woden - The Frenzied One,
Carved runes upon my Inner Being;
Ancient runes of Fire and Ice -
Whence now shall we turn?

What ancient path must now we take
Masked One? Who will show the way?
For now the fateful time has come,
The time foretold in days of yore.

Read I now these Ancient Runes,
Carved long ago by Gods and Elves;
Runes of Might, Runes of Power,
Waking now within the Blood.

Deep, deep within the Well of Mimir
Lies hidden, lost, the Eye of Woden;
The Eye that sees, cannot be seen,
Now calls the Raven - 'I know something!'

What secret now the Gods reveal?
What runic power rises from the Deep?
A cold light from the Hidden Sun,
Now calls the Raven - 'I know something!'

Light from the Darkness, casting shadows,
Moving patterns in the mist.
Runes rising, falling, swirling, spinning.
Now calls the Raven - 'I know something!'

Runes weaved upon the Web of Wyrd,
Battle-Runes, carved on spear and sword;
Blood-stained banners, wolf and raven feed,
The Hunter rides, the Fury wakened.

Wake now the Eagle and the Wolf!
All that is weak shall fall -
All that is strong shall rise!

What says the ancient Head of Mimir?
What runes pour from the Ancient Head?
Who drinks not from the wise shall never know
The secrets that the Gods reveal.

Now sounds the horn that wakens gods and men;
Not all shall hear, too many sleep;
But deep within the Blood an ancient call,
A memory, a thought that stirs.

A spark that lights an Inner Fire,
Brought back to life by Ancient Runes;
Strange forces now awaken,
Woe to he who fails to hear the call!

The Edel-Rune & The Ing-Rune

The balance of Light & Darkness
I am going to study the Edel-Rune and the Ing-Rune here in some detail and try to unravel some of their mysteries. Firstly, we need to recognise that the Edel-Rune is itself a bind-rune made up of other runes; not so complex as the Stan-Rune but nevertheless with certain runes that give access to its hidden meanings. I will go through these runes -
Ing & Gyfu = 'Gift of Ing'. This comprises the Germanic Ing-Rune ('Diamond-Ing') and the Gyfu-Rune. These runes are 'fused together', some parts overlapping each other.
Ur & Ing = Ur-Ing (Iring). This is the Ur-glyphic Ur-Rune and again the Germanic Ing-Rune. These runes are separate.
Ur & Gyfu = Ur-Gift. Again we have the ur-glyphic Ur-Rune but this time bound to the Gyfu-Rune. These runes are separate.
Twin Sig-Runes which are a reflection of each other.
These runes need to be remembered since they will come up again as this work enfolds. We must now pass to the meanings we have found in relation to the rune -
1. Rune of the Ancestral Homeland - At-al-land. The shape shows the Ing-Rune on the Ur-Rune which suggests the 'Primal Ing-Land'. The meaning usually given to it - 'inherited property' came into use no doubt long after the sinking of At-al-land. The link to 'Blood and Soil', of course, at an inner level still remembering the Ancestral Lands and the Blood of the Ancestors. The Edel-Rune is usually seen as 'Soil', whilst the Ing-Rune is seen as 'Blood'. Their combination in the Edel-Rune itself gives us 'Blood and Soil' but it still contains the idea of Blood Memory.
2. Rune of The Hooded Man - Hamasson first suggested this to me and I see no reason not to think he is right on this. The rune-name itself (Od) suggests Odin (Woden) who is 'The Hooded One' or 'Hooden'. The glyph suggests a 'hood' which is the basis of the name 'Hooded Man'.
3. Rune of Atlas - Atlas is At-al-As which means 'Racial Ase' and he is associated with 'holding the world on his shoulders' - a reference to the 'globe' (Ing-Rune here) on his 'shoulders' (ur-glyphic Ur-Rune). This rune-shape, in a rounded form, is an ancient way of symbolising Atlas. This god is connected to the World Pillars in the Far North. It is interesting to note that the second vertebrae is named after Atlas because it holds up the head; clearly the head is the 'globe' but also the Ing-Rune. It is strange that the Ingwaeones were held to be at the northern part of Europe, the 'head' of Europe, by Tacitus.
4. The shape, as that of the shape of the Diamond-Ing Rune, to me also suggests an 'opening' or a 'gateway'. I am here going to suggest that this 'Gateway' is like the modern term 'portal', a 'Gateway to another World' (or another dimension in scientific terms). If this is right then this also applies to the Diamond Ing-Rune.
5. The Gyfu-Rune and Ing-Rune give us the 'Gift of Ing'; what exactly is the 'Gift of Ing'? From the White Stone of Ing we see that the 'Gift of Ing' is Fire, as shown by the alternative Ken-Rune. This is the Ur-Fire suggested by the Ur-Rune being bound to the Gyfu-Rune. Fire is expansion, energy, but it is also destructive in its nature (Loge) since as it burns it eats up physical matter. But put another way this fire is capable of transforming one substance into another, hence its use in cremation. The 'Gift of Fire' is also that of Sacral Kingship.
6. The Ur-Rune and Ing-Rune give us Ur-Ing or perhaps Ir-Ing, the name of a Saxon God associated with the Milky Way, known to them as Iring's Way. This I have associated with Irmin since it is the Irminsul, but we can also link it to Ing too. It is thus important to note that Iring's Way - the Milky Way - is reflected on these islands as the Royal Roads of Irmin (Ermine Street - A1) and Wade/Wate (Watling Street - A5). These are so-called 'Roman Roads' but they predate the Romans and it would seem were important around 18,000 years ago since activity in one part can be dated back that far ago. Their importance seems to be that they link England-Scotland-Wales, having the source in the Capital of England, London.
7. The Ur-Rune and the Gyfu-Rune may well represent the 'Primal Gift-Goddess' who is Gefion, an aspect of Freya. This is 'The Bride' whose father gives the gift of a dowry, and 'gives away the Bride'. She was well known here in England as the late tale of 'Lady Godiva' shows.
8. Twin Sig-Runes which may relate to the planet Venus as the Morning Star (Ingwe-Frey) and the Evening Star (Freya). This is a 'double-star' both male and female, a planet that heralds the coming of Light (Morning Star) and the coming of Darkness (Evening Star). It holds within itself the balance of Light and Darkness, and is the 'Beginning and the End', the 'First and the 'Last'. It also turns counter-wise to the planet Earth and has long been seen as our 'sister-planet'. The twin Sig-Runes could also refer to the Black-Sun & White Sun.
We now need to turn to the two main runes that make up the Edel-Rune, the Ing-Rune and the Gyfu-Rune. I shall break these down into three for convenience -
The Gyfu-Rune -
1. This has been associated with Ginnungagap (*) - the Primal Void - but as yet I have found no obvious reason to do so. I am not saying this association is wrong, just that no-one seems to have explained why this is so.
2. It refers to Gefion, the Gift-Goddess, as we have just shown. The twin staves suggest an exchange of gifts. Suggested too is the Divine Wedding since the staves cross over.
3. The Crossroads, which is always kinked to a liminal state, a state of 'in-between-ness', of a link between the worlds, a 'crossing-over' into another world. The Cross roads was also where criminals were hung, the Sacred Gallows set up to give the sacrifice to Woden.
4. 'X marks the spot' is a common saying because we use an 'X' to do so. It is also a sign used for multiplication, which is a form of increase. But on a negative side it is used to 'cross out' something, to destroy or erase it. It thus contains a kind of fusion of opposites - creative and destructive. 'That which gives takes away' could be a good phrase to use.
The Germanic Ing-Rune (Diamond-Ing) -
1. The Rune of Ingwe, also the Rune of England.
2. The glyph is that of two ur-glyphic Ur-Runes joined to make a diamond shape. One interpretation could be that this represents the Sacred Mountain and its 'roots' as the reflection. The 'roots' would thus be in another world - the Inner Earth? It is interesting to note that Mount Meru is often shown as being inverted.
3. Two Roman historians have stated that England was once shaped like a 'diamond' or 'two-sided axe'. The latter would refer to the type of stone age axe which looks like a diamond. The rune thus represents an ancient memory of England as it used to be.
4. The shape is like a 'hole' or 'entrance' - a portal or gateway (to another world?). If this is so then (like the Edel-Rune) it is a Gateway to Thule or Gateway to At-al-land.

5. It can also represent the 'Womb of the Mother' or 'Womb of the Earth' and is sometimes seen with a 'seed' at the centre (for example Bryn Celli Ddu in Gwynedd, North Wales). Its use as a 'lozenge' may also be related to this meaning, and it is a very ancient sign found across Europe, used mainly in the megalithic age. (This is one case where the rune itself has not been recognised for what it is.)

The Anglo-Frisian Ing-Rune -

This rune has two variations, where one is two X-crosses (Gyfu-Runes) placed one on top of the other, the second has two X-crosses placed side by side. The first we shall refer to as the Kan-Fusion and the second the Ur-Fusion.

The Kan Fusion -

1. This is Fire and its reflection; it is the Inga-Fire or Igneous Fire of the Black Sun.

2. This is also the Edel-Rune and its reflection and is a symbol used of the Divine Twins in ancient times. Here the Divine Twins are joined at the head - and as we shall see later these are Hengest and Horsa, the 'Horse Twins'. Using the same imagery this is the Racial Homeland 'sinking' and then 'rising' once more at a future time. This also refers to the 'sinking' of the Blood Memory, which would be awakened later.

3. Again suggested by Hamasson, this is the Edel-Rune which has been 'crowned'. It is thus the transformation of The Hooded Man (Edel) into Wid-Ar/Ingwe (Ing). This suggests that The Hooded Man appears before the Last Avatar, and in some sense transforms into the Last Avatar, or maybe appears as a Fuhrer (one who appears in times of the greatest need of his Folk) and then the Avatar enters him later (which has happened, and which occurs at a particular time of a Cosmic Cycle).

The Ur-Fusion -

1. This has clear sexual symbolism and is a glyph of the union of the male and the female. The Germanic Ing-Rune in the centre may well represent the 'seed' produced through this union.

2. The fusion of Heaven and Earth, the upward-pointing being 'heaven' and the downward-pointing 'earth'. Again, we see the fusion of opposites into a whole, in this case Ing. It is hinted at here that this represents also the balance of the Power of Light and the Power of Darkness. The same symbolism also applies as that of (1) since the upwards-pointing is symbolic of the male, and the downward-pointing as the female (the Phallus of the male and Genitals of the Female).

The Anglo-Frisian Ing-Rune as a whole -

This is two X-Runes, Gyfu-Runes or 'g-runes' and thus we have the hidden meaning of 'g-g'. This is interesting for two reasons -

1. 'g-g' is the name that children use (or use to use maybe) for the horse. It's use here on a symbol of the Divine Twins does suggest the Horse Twins - Hengest and Horsa. Hengest, of course, can be Ing-Geist or the 'Spirit of Ing', and from his legend we can gleam that he is the Immortal Twin whilst Horsa is the Mortal Twin.

2. In the Greek Tongue I am led to believe that the letters 'gg' written together are pronounced as 'ng'. This suggests to me that we can pronounce the name 'Igg' as 'Ing' suggesting that in the Ing-Rune we have a hint of the Return of Igg.

Woden's title when he hung upon the Sacred Tree was 'Igg' or 'Ygg' (Ing can also be written Yng) and here he was the Hanged God who sacrificed himself to himself and was pierced with the Spear of Woden. Scholars have commented upon this and suggested that this part of his myth was taken from the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. However, when we find that there is an ancient form of Rudra-Shiva named 'Ugg' the whole thing changes, and we can see that this part of the myth was far more ancient than the historical 'Jesus Christ' and refers to what we call the Aryan Krist. Indeed, when we find that the 'Spear of Longinus' is (through Frederick Barbarossa - Frederick Rotbart) linked to Woden's Ravens (his Ravens left him when he dropped the Spear) and is the famous Spear of Destiny, then this legend pertains to the Aryan Krist before his tale was distorted by the Judaeo-Christians.

Again, we get a link to the 'g-g' or horse since Iggdrasil is said to mean the 'Steed of Igg' ('Steed of Woden'). This steed is the Eight-legged horse named Sleipnir ('The Slipper' who 'slips' between the worlds) and in this version of the Ing-Rune we find that there are eight sections, four within each 'X'.

Now we move to looking at certain 'formula' which we can get from the Edel-Rune  and Ing-Rune -

Gyfu + Gyfu = Anglo-Frisian Ing-Rune.

Germanic Ing-Rune + Gyfu = Edel-Rune.

Gyfu (The Gift Goddess) + Edel (The Hooded Man) = The Ing-Rune.

Here I am going to go deeper into the last one of these (which was given to me by CMR from Vinland). Here The Hooded Man needs to be 'wed' to the Guardian Goddess of England (Sovereignty, who is Idunn, 'Britannia', the wielder of the Spear and Shield - a 'Shield-Maiden'). Through this The Hooded Man is 'transformed' into his 'Son' - Ingwe or Wid-Ar the Avenger. In a sense here we have a formula that I have used many times before over the years since WF was formed back in 1998 -

Tir - Tiwaz, the Sky-Father. This represents the Sacral King.

Beorc - The Birth-Mother. This represents the Guardian Goddess of the Land, Sovereignty, Idunn, Freya. The 'Mother of Earth'.

Eh - The 'Divine Wedding' of the Sacral King and the Guardian Goddess, of Frey and Freya.

Man - The Manu, Mannus, the one who comes prior to the Great Flood to save the Vedas and to renew the Ur-Law of Race, the Divine Order of the Gods. He is the Mystical Number 88 (this rune is two Wyn-runes, Wyn being the 8th rune). This can also be related to The Hooded Man.

Lagu - The Great Flood. The Great Deep in which the Wafeln sails bringing the 'Seed of Rebirth' or 'Seed of Resurrection', sailing upon the Waters of Chaos, the Waters of Dissolution (Dissolution of the Races through the 'Great Flood' of outlanders).

Ing - The 'Son of Man(nus). Son of the Widow. The Hero-God. Wid-ar the Avenger in this era. Wid-Ar is the Crowned & Avenging Son of the (Black) Sun. The Return of Igg as the 'White Krist' of Revelation - the Aryan Krist (**). 'The Father is The Son'. He appears after the Great Flood as can be found prophesied in 'The Short Seeress' Prophecy'. He is the 'Spirit of Woden' resurrected in his 'Son'. None would dare mention his 'dreaded name', for it was Igg the Terrible!

Daeg - 'Day' and the New Dawn, the Dawn of a New Order. Harmony of the Left-Brain - Right-Brain, the balance of the Power of Light and the Power of Darkness restored. Infinity-Eternity. The Way to the Immortals. Advent of 'The Radiant Ones' or Shining Ones'. Super-consciousness.

Edel - The Rising of At-al-land/Thule/Hyperborea. The sinking of At-al-land/Thule was also a sinking into the Blood. Here lies the Ancient Blood Memory of the catastrophe and also the prophecy of its rising again. But this was not the only thing to 'sink', for the Mind's Eye (Third Eye) was lost, 'sank', maybe was 'sacrificed' (in Mimir's Well) in order to create the Aryan Man and the 'I', essential for the final phase of the Resurrection of the Arya and the Return of the God-Man. The Edel-Rune represents the 'Lost Eye of Woden' revived in The Coming Man. It can be seen as the 'Rising of the Lost Eye of Woden' (the 'Eye' obviously being the Germanic Ing-Rune).

There is a secret hidden here which pertains to the Prophecy 88 again, where the 'Sleeping Goddess' has to be awakened by the Power of the Black Sun. It is necessary to recognise that in this Aryan Mythology it is a Goddess (Female Divine Power) that needs to be awakened by The Aryan Hero and it is she who gives birth to the Divine Child - Ingwe. It is the male who seeks his Valkyrie (SHE), unites with her (HE/SHE) and produces from within himself the Son of Man (Ingwe). (See Miguel Serrano's works to clarify this point). This is particularly clear in the Ur-Fusion form of the Ing-Rune.

(*) Ginnungagap. This has been given many meanings but in all it relates to a Magically-charged Void that existed before Creation. This is interesting since scientists have now postulated that the Great Void of Bootes existed before the so-called 'Big Bang'. We could break this word down into -

ginn - the beginning, to begin.

unga - offspring of (related to Inga).

gap - void.

Looked at another way this is the 'Beginning Gap/Void' (Void at the beginning)which is magically charged by the Inga-Fire. We can even find reference to 'Inga' prior to the Creation - a Primal Archetype.

(**) For those who may criticise me for referring to 'Krist' I would point out that we are dealing with Dark Forces that are in essence an 'Anti-race' guided by The Dark Lord (Demiurge) who is non-creative and who can only seek to 'create' by taking an already established form and inverting it completely. This Dark Force cannot create anything itself it has to use something already there, or use 'White Traitors' to do its work effectively in some areas. As such for a Judaic-Christian religion to have been 'created' means that there had to be an original form the predates this act - Aryan Kristianity. We can find the 'Hanged God' in so many different Indo-European traditions long before the so-called birth of 'Christ'. For us, Woden IS the Aryan Krist who hangs in a self-sacrifice in order to gain knowledge for his Folk. This is why his legend is the same! We can find (under the Hagal-Rune) reference to this Krist 'shaping' the Ancient World.
