Graal Mysteries

It was Hamasson who had a dream that the Cweorth-Rune (above) was the 'handle' of the Broken Sword. The blade here is missing and thus 'broken', and this forms part of Germanic Mythology. We have to assume here that the Cweorth-Rune is also that of the Sword (sweorth) by a play-on-words. The word 'sword' comes from the Aryan Root *swar- which has the following meanings -

  • to murmur, hum, buzz, or speak (imitative origin).
  • to shine, glow, burn.
  • to string, to bind.

It is interesting to note that when we use the term 'Black Sun' we should really use Swart Sun which is from the Old English. The word swart stems from the same Aryan Root *swar- meaning 'to shine', 'to glow' or 'to burn' because the true and original sense of the word meant 'blackened by heat'. We here has a direct link between the Black Sun and the Sword, even though this is a very subtle link and not obvious without knowing the root-words.


This stems from the Welsh 'Caledfwlch' and Medieval Latin 'Caliburnus', and these stem from the IE Root *kal- meaning 'hard'. Since most of the words used in myth and legend have subtle inner meanings this name does not seem to give us anything to go by if we take this as the only meaning. But if we use an older dictionary we find the following -

Aryan Root *kal-/Teutonic Root *hal- meaning 'to hide' or 'to cover'. 

Aryan Root *kal-/*kar- meaning 'to cry out' or 'to exclaim'.

Aryan Root *kar-/Teutonic Root *har meaning 'hard' or 'rough'. Also meaning 'to curve' or 'to roll'.

Aryan Root *kar-/Teutonic Root *har- meaning 'to hurt' or 'to destroy'.

The last of these meanings seem to fit the role of the sword. It should be noted that the prefix 'Ex-' seems to have been added to the original name, maybe used to signify the 'X' in 'Xrist' since these legends were written down in Christian times. There is also a famous sword in the Ulster Cycle - Caladbolg - wielded by Fergus mac Roich. Excalibur was either the 'Sword in the Stone' or the 'Sword in the Lake'. 


In Beowulf we find a sword named Hunlafing Hildeloeman which is placed on the lap of Hengest. The name means - "Hun-bequest : Battle-flame" - and is the Sword of Aetla the Hun, passed from the Hunnish World-Ruler to Hengest, thus passing the Wyrd of Aetla to that of Hengest. This sword was used by the English Tribes when they rallied the Germanic Peoples of these islands and conquered the land to become 'England'. This sword could also be the same as that which Cynric wielded for the West Saxons. It is also likely that Tolkien used this as the 'Battle-Flame of the West" - Anduril - the reforged 'Broken Sword' used by Aragorn. This sword was broken and reforged by the Elves.

The Flaming Sword.

It is interesting to note that a 'Flaming Sword' is placed in the east of the Garden of Eden 'to keep the way of the Tree of Life'. This was placed there by 'God' because Eve and Adam, tempted by the Serpent of Knowledge, ate of the Tree of Knowledge - an Apple Tree is the usual symbolism. As I showed in the last article, the Apple-Tree is the Barnstock Tree of the Wolsunga House, and also the Apple of Frigga used to renew the House of the Wolsungas. The Ogham Quert is the 'Apple-Tree' associated with the Cweorth-Rune. The 'Flaming Sword' is wielded by the Last Avatar. 

The Stan-Rune in its 'Stone of Ing' version contains the English Ing-Rune within twin staves - 

I have mentioned before on many occasions how the letter ng (which it once way) has been broken into an 'n' and a 'g' and thus symbolises the 'Broken S-Word'. It is also interesting to note that the English Ing-Rune is made up of two Gyfu-Runes, but using the Greek spelling of 'ng' we get 'gg' which is two 'G's as in the runes. The 'Gift of Ing' is the Spear of Woden symbolised by the Gar-Rune, and the 'Memory of Ing' is contained in the sword Miming. Ingwe-Frey was seen as a 'Sword-God' who gave up his sword for the love of Gerda (Earth), and had to fight Surt (who wielded a 'Flaming Sword') with a Stag's Horn. The form NG is thus associated with the 'Flaming Sword' since Ingwe is a Fire-God just like Agni. (Note that an alternative name for the Cweorth Rune is Tris which is 'SIRT' spelled backwards.) 

Perhaps far more important than the actual meanings taken from the root-words is the meaning 'Ritual Fire' or 'Fire of Cremation' used of the Cweorth-Rune, and also its relationship with the Peorth-Rune or 'Rune of Wyrd'. Cweorth is a Rune of Transformation by Fire and Purification by Fire, the element that will destroy the worlds through the 'Fires of Surt' in order that they can be recreated anew for a new Cosmic Cycle. Cweorth is the Fire-Twirl, the symbol used by Waendal or Mundilfari to create the worlds, and used by Rudra-Shiva to destroy the worlds. 

The Nyd-Rune shows the Sword pushed into the trunk of the Barnstock Tree - Oak or Apple. When the Sword is removed the 'I' or 'Broken Ego' is renewed, which is the role of the Warrior-Hero. Richard Wagner, in his Ring Cycle, names the sword Nothung which is the 'Need of Ing'. We should never dismiss this symbolism as being 'late' and thus 'not authentic' because Archetypal Myth adapts itself to an era, and Wagner (like Nietzsche) was one of the foremost mystics and prophets of this era. Indeed, through Parsifal, Wagner saw past the roles of Sigmund and Sigurd (Siegfried) into the one who would create a renewal of Nature. The Nyd-Rune is associated with 'death' and the 'Mystical Death' of the Wodenic Initiation. 

Sigmund - World War I

Sigurd - World War II when the 'Broken Sword' is renewed.

Parsifal - Seeker of the Graal. Plunges the Holy Spear into the Holy Graal, an act of Creation that will create the God-Man. 

These mysteries are found in that of HelgiH Thrice-Born who comes as the Last Avatar. 

The "Word-Sword".

The play-on-words of the term 'sword' to 'S-Word' comes out in an interesting piece where the 'Son of Man' (Ing) has a sword coming from his mouth. This comes into the Graal Mythos through Wolfram von Eschenbach in a passage related to the 'Word-Sword'. In this the 'Word-Sword' has become old, atrophied, shattered, and lost its power. Only through discovering the source of this power can the 'Word-Sword' be renewed. The source of this power is hidden within the text of this mythos.

It is hidden in the Well of Kunneware which is the source of the 'Magic Spring'; above this Holy Well is a globe upon which sits a dragon. This whole text refers to the Base-Cauldron of the ALU-ULA Formula which is centred around the sex-organs (related to Ingwe) and Hara-Centre. 'Kunneware' is the 'Kan-Rune or 'Rune of the Dragon' which 'guards' this Holy Well. The 'Magic Spring' is the source or origin and thus the link to the Ur-Rune which is the rune of this centre. The symbol of this Sacred Centre is the Fylfot-Swastika which is at the 'foot' of the Sacred Tree, the Base-Centre. 

The 'Word-Sword' can withstand the first blow, but on the second blow it shatters; its renewal can only be done by taking it back to the source which is the Holy Spring below the Rock, where it can become whole again through the flow of water (Lagu-Rune). This must be done before the light of day has shone upon it. The Signs of the Constellations will then re-appear upon the blade of the Sword in their right order. Since we find that one of the swords is given by the 'Lady of the Lake' we can easily link this to the Lagu-Rune and to the flow of water that renews the Broken Sword, even if this is not actually stated in this saga. 

The Base-Cauldron is the 'Cauldron of Heat' or 'Golden Stove' in Chinese Tantra; it contains the Manipura Chakra which is related to -

  1. Fire.
  2. The Swastika - Force of Fire.
  3. The Ram (Agni-Inga).
  4. The Mantra - 'RAM'. 

We can relate three of the lower chakras to the Base-Cauldron - Muladhara (Earth), Svadhisthana (Water) and Manipura (Fire), although there may be some overlapping of symbols between the Three Cauldrons. 

There are three symbols here relating to the Kundalini or 'Fire-Serpent' - 'Kunneware', 'Magic Spring', and 'Dragon-Serpent'. There are also three runes that link to these ideas - Lagu (water-well-spring), Ing ('Spring', 'Rising' etc.), and Daeg (Light of Day). The source of the power of the 'Word-Sword' can be seen as the Fire-Serpent represented in Wodenic Lore by Ingwe as the Inga-Fire. This is also the Ur-Spring or 'Primal Spring' related to this Cauldron of Power. The source of the Water is in the Earth, and the source of the Fire is in the Water - 'Fire-from-Water'. This is the 'Fire of the Brisingas' (Brisingamen) which Loki stole, swam through the waters, followed by Hama who took the stolen necklace from him and returned it to Freya. Hama retrieved the Necklace of Fire from the waters. This is the same tale as that of Kau Khusrau of Persia when he retrieved the Hvarena ('Glory of Light') which belonged to the Aryan Nations and to Zarathustra. 

What is not clear is the link between the 'broken' "Word-Sword" and the Zodiacal Constellations, although we are not specifically told that this is the Zodiac. The 'Signs of the Constellations' could indeed be the Ancient Runes since certain runes do show constellations in the night-sky (the Cweorth-Rune is the Constellation of Signus the Swan, and Bootes is shaped as an Ing-Rune in one variant). 


Waendal can be seen as Mundilfore who is the 'World-Turner' who sends down his 'son' (Hama) to Earth bringing Friction-Fire at the end of the Golden Age. The Long Man of Wilmington is Waendal here seen in the pose of the Cweorth-Rune as the 'Fire-Whisk' that whisks the worlds into creation and which also destroys the worlds through the 'Fire-Dance of Rudra-Shiva'. The 'Tree of Waendal' is the 'Tree of Immortality' the Yew Tree (found in the churchyard in Wilmington and said to be some 1,600 years old). 

The Ear-Rune is 'Earth' & 'Water' whilst the Cweorth-Rune which shares a similar shape is 'Fire'. The concept of 'Fire-from-Water' is associated with Ingwe & Agni. 

The Long Man & The Graal.

I have gone over this before but will look again at the same details which I discovered in a book called The Wilmington Giant by Rodney Castleden. This is based upon a suggestion by S.F. Annett that the area around the Long Man features in the Petit Saint Graal which features Parsifal (Peredur). Here, again, I am not going into the tale, but will look at the individual features or symbols -

A castle with no inhabitants - Burlough Castle is a 'castle' with no trace of a building, it is a large mound. This was the home of the Sussex 'Fairies' (Elves).

A chessboard on which the pieces are moving themselves - here Parsifal loses and throws the chessboard into a river.

The River Cuckmere which runs through this area between the Long Man and a White Horse on Hindover Hill (High & Over).

The White Hart - An 'ill-favoured maiden' rebukes him and has to go to a nearby wood to behead a White Hart. He does as he is told, but a mysterious knight appears and takes the head. The nearby wood is a small grove of trees which surrounds Lullington Church. The White Hart and its hunting may be seen in another Comet-shaped long barrow east of the hill-figure - Hunter's Burgh.

A mound beneath which is carved the figure of a man - There is a Long Barrow called 'Windover Mound' just above the figure of the Long Man. 

A huge Black Man appears from the mound and Parsifal defeats him. This is the 'Wild Man' or Wuduwasa.

Unfortunately, as usual, S.F. Annett approaches the whole tale from a 'Celtic' point of view even though this is in the area of the South Saxons and before them another Germanic Tribe named the Belgae. Looked from a Germanic point of view it can be equated with Germanic Mythology. 

Here two players of Taefl sit in the pose of the Peorth-Rune, playing this game as a Game of Chance (it would have been played with dice). Thus the game is associated with Wyrd and the 'ill-favoured maiden' would be one of the Wyrd Sisters. 'Windover Mound' is a long-barrow with a difference; it has a cigar-shaped long-barrow and a round barrow at the hill-figure end. This may be a Phallic Symbol in all, or there is the possibility that the Long Barrow is the Phallic Symbol and the Round Barrow the Graal-Symbol. The Spear plunged into the Graal. The large 'Black Man' is the Guardian of the Gateway which is the hill-figure who holds open the doors, or holds twin-spears (originally). He is the Wuduwosa. 

It is interesting to note that the Peorth-Rune is the Beorc-Rune opened up in 'birth' and thus the 'Birth-Rune'. As I have said before, the whole area is a 'Time-Clock' set to be triggered by the last appearance of the Hale-Bopp Comet in the spring of 1997 (Hunter's Burgh represents the Hale-Bopp Comet). The White Horse, through the use of the term 'hart' and being on top of 'Hind-over' hill, would be the 'White Hart'. The small church found in the wooded area at Lullington stands on a heathen mound and was thus a heathen site originally. 

In the Horns of Gallehus (Denmark) we find in the third row from the bottom two figures carrying a Board-Game, underneath which is a dog-headed figure in the Peorth-Rune pose. On the bottom row, in the centre, are two 'dice', or what appear to be dice, each with 3 dots. If you look carefully at the top runic-stance poses on the bottom row there is a human figure and dog figure (on a leash to another human) in the self-same pose with a board-game between them. (To understand the dog-figure a look at Kris Kershaw's work on Odin and the Germanic Mannerbunde traces this back to Vedic India.)

The Number 16 forms a great part of the Graal Mythos, and this is associated with the game of chess which has 16 pieces on each side (this is a later form of Taefl and best known for medieval times when the Graal Mythos was around). A chessboard thus has 32 pieces and 64 (double that) squares (8 x 8). In another variant of this the 'ill-favoured woman' is a young woman wearing a red dress covered with stars - the 'Red Queen' of Egil's Saga. She is the ruler of the Number 4 which is the basis of the chessboard - the Star Woman. We are dealing with an area in the south and thus with the southern stars and thus the link made in The Sacred Triangle of Pagan Iceland (Einar Palsson) with Isis and Sirius. Emma Jung, again working through Celtic Lore, sees this Star Woman as  she who inherits the chessboard of 'Morgana'. This is very interesting in view of my dream of 1997 which stated that the Hale-Bopp Comet was 'sent by Morgana', especially as I usually work through Germanic Mythology. Whatever the case the 'Star Woman' is Wyrd and the chessboard is symbolic of the Conflict of Opposites that creates Wholeness. Since some scholars also consider that the original 'Holy Grail' was the 'Horn of Plenty' it is also relevant to record that at the same time as the Hale-Bopp Comet was said to have been 'sent by Morgana' it was also stated that this was linked to 'Capricorn - the Horn of Plenty'. (This was long before I ever read the book on Pagan Iceland.)

The Skapker Heidhrunar ("Measuring-vessel of Heidrun") is the 'Horn of Plenty, associated with the goat Heidrun (Capricorn in the Northern Skies and the Northern Gateway to the Gods). Note in the board-game where the players sit in the Peorth-Rune stance the right-hand player holds a horn. (The other side is not clear so both may do so.) The Horn of Heidrun sustains the Einheriar in Valhalla. The 'Horn of Plenty', it is said, is the Womb of the Great Mother, and here we can see yet another link with the Long Man of Wilmington. This hill-figure is symbolic of Cygnus the Swan whose main star - Deneb - is a pointer to the Dark Rift at the centre of the Milky Way Galaxy. This is sometimes seen as the 'Womb of the Cosmic Mother'. The idea of a 'black man' is thus symbolic of the 'Dark Rift' and the 'opening' is where the 'birth' takes place. It is also interesting to note that in Wulf's Prophecy Wid-Ar the Avenger (HelgiH) appears through the 'Triangle' and Cygnus the Swan is in the Summer Triangle. 

We need to look at the name 'Heidrun' which means 'bright' (heidr) 'secret' or 'mystery' (run) or 'Bright Rune'. She is the she-goat who eats from Yggdrasil, the World Tree and thus produces Mead in her udders which sustains the Einheriar in Valhalla. This is the Sacred Mead of Immortality taken from the 'Tree of Life' (which is also called 'The Measuring Tree'). The area of Capricorn in the Northern Skies is the 'Northern Gateway to the Gods'. 

Cygnus the Swan

What we should notice is that in the modern interpretations of these Grail Mysteries Morgana is seen as being on the side of 'evil'; this can be explained by these mysteries being set down through Celtic Christianity and the Norman-French in the times when anything English was being destroyed or suppressed where it could not be destroyed. In these legends 'King Arthur' was the good guy - the Christian - and Vortigern and Morgana were the bad guys, most likely because they were drawn from Heathen Lore. Morgana is the Irish Morrigan who were the 'Sisters of Fate' - Wyrd Sisters. King Arthur is often associated with the Red Dragon and Vortigern with the White Dragon - a reversal of Germanic Lore.


All of these can be linked to the ideas above since we have -

Cweorth - The Sword.

Calc-Stan - The 'White Stone' or chalk-hills of the South Downs on which the hill-figure stands. There is also the 'White Stone' in West Sussex. 

Gar - The Spear. Twin spears were once held by the hill-figure who is Woden as the Great Initiator

The Sacred Marriage & The Divine Child.

In 1999 there was an astronomical event in which the Sun and Moon were seen in the 'Sacred Marriage' through the Solar Eclipse of August 11th 1999 at 11.00am. The planet Venus (in the constellation of The Virgin) was in the same house - the 'House of the White Dragon'. But this was not all, for between the years 1998 and 2012 the Sun moved into the area of the 'Dark Rift' of the Milky Way; the Sun (Male) moved into the Womb of the Mother. This must be a sign of the conception of the New Age and the 'Divine Child'. 

"Of all the realms/empires one returns twice - and always in a different location. The vibrations derived of the Bab-Chomet causes this."

Prophecies of Sahaja (from Babylonia).

This prophecy refers to the return of Sargon as the 'Third Sargon' who will appear in the North at a time when the Sun blackens across Europe (Black Sun or Solar Eclipse 1999). The 'Bap-Chomet' reminded me of 'Bopp-Comet' and refers to the Hale-Bopp Comet which cycles every 4,000 years, the last time being at the time of the Great Flood, and the next time prophesied in the New Testament as the 'Second Coming' (of the 'Son of Man') and in Islamic and Jewish Lore. It is the 'vibrations of the Hale-Bopp Comet' which was 'sent by Wyrd/Morgana' that brought about these events. 

The Gar-Rune has within itself the 'Hidden Rune' which is the Fylfot-Swastika overlaid upon the Ing-Rune, thus the Fylfot-Swastika overlaid across the 'Land of Ing' (England). The Gar-Rune as it is represents the 'Sacrifice of Ing' or the 'sacrifice' of the English and of England for a higher destiny. Here in the 'Islands of the West' ('Land of the Dead') we find the Eternal Battle between the White Dragon (Goten) and the Red Dragon (Joten) which comes to a head at the End Time. The Gar-Rune in the above form can be expanded in all directions; it represents England (Ing-Rune) as it once was according to Roman historians (diamond-shaped) but when expanded it represents the 'Rising of At-al-land' from the Great Deep. The Land and the Folk are one - An land - An Folc!
