Heil & Sieg!



'Hagal is cold corn/and driving sleet/and snake's sickness'. Icelandic Rune Poem

This is the 'snowflake' rune which covers both hail, sleet, frost, and the flakes of snow - the pattern is of Ice. The inference here is of a 'seed' ('corn'), but I have no idea about the 'snake's sickness' - however, the mention of the snake may be important, so we'll not dismiss that. The pattern is also of Miguel Serrano's HE/SHE concept, which we'll look at later. This is also a Life-Rune - Death-Rune bind-rune -

The pattern is one of 'wholeness' (Heil) since we have here the Roots - Trunk - Branches of a Tree. Wholeness, Holy, Harmony, Health and Healing. The role of the Ar-Man as the one who 'fits together' that which is broken asunder by the Shadow-Forces. In both the Welsh, Breton and Greek tongues the word for 'Sun' is haul, hoel and helios; 'haul' is pronounced 'heil' as far as I know. (These may be from the older tongues.) Rather than the 'H' the Germanic Tongues (including the Irish here) use an S - Sun, Sal, Sol, Solar, Sowel, Sowilo, Sig-el, etc. (The Irish form means 'eye'.) So the Hagal-Rune and the Sig-Rune are linked together, and both can mean 'Sun' - this rune-stave is that of the Sun and its rays. 

'Hagal is coldest of corns/Krist shaped/the original home.' Norwegian Rune Poem.

Again, the idea of a 'corn' or 'seed'; and here, as I have covered before, Krist was the shaper of the UR-Home (Urheim). Krist here is associated with Ingwe, and to the 'Holy Spirit' which is a 'Fiery-Spirit'. This gives us nothing new here.

'Haegl is whitest of corns/from heaven's height it whirls/winds blow it/it becomes water after.' Old English Rune-Poem.

This version refers not to 'cold corn' but to 'whitest of corns' and it uses certain terms - whirls, winds blow it, and that it turns into water. To turn ice or frozen rain into water again needs warmth and heat, so here we may have a hidden reference to Fire. That the wind whirls it suggests yet another reference hinting at Fire, which needs the movement of air to light and maintain its form. Maybe or maybe not, just some ideas here. The rune also shows HE/SHE but in the form of UR/RU, the Ur-Rune and its reflection. 

The aim of the Global Elite is to make themselves 'immortal' through the means of the 'Immortality of the Cells'. Once more, this is a sick parody and copy of the true road to the Immortals - the Immortality of the Soul. Miguel Serrano covers this topic in his usual style, and it can be found in the Manual of Khshnoom where the Male-Female Souls unite to create the 'Total Man' (Serrano). The Manual tells us that the aim is of the Perfected Soul - Magovan - who is I-e-Su, a passionless birth. It also tells us that this is the Will of God - AHU using their own words. This, then is the true Path of Evolution as set put by the God-head, as opposed to the false path of immortalising the physical body. There is no doubt that there have been some who have mistaken the process for what it really is - Spiritual Evolution. 

Way back in 1981 there was a film called 'Artemis 81' which I have covered before, since it features a battle between Light and Dark, and of a virus that affects the people of one area. It is a strange film which uses the word 'asexual' crossed out - as if emphasising this. The same night as I watched this I had a strange dream in which was a powerful symbol - A Five-Pointed Star (Blue-Black if I recall) and a Sig-Rune in Red. I was told that the Sig-Rune symbolised 'Magical Socialism' and the Five-Pointed Star 'Man Asexual'. I have never used the symbol, but it does seem to be relevant now after learning these things. The Five-Pointed Star is the Star of Venus, which tracks its movement through a cycle; it is also a symbol of Man. Five, according to Miguel Serrano, is a number of Hyperborea.

There are certain other words connected to 'Heil' -

Haele - Hero/Chief/Brave Man.

Hael - Omen.

Haeleth - Hero.

Haeland - 'Saviour' (*).

Halig - Holy (Selig, also Old English, means almost the same - blessed, holy).

Helgi - The Hallowed One - is a Wulfinga and 'Scion of Ingwe'; his Archetypal Myth is somewhat different than that of the more famous Sigurd-Siegfried. Sigurd-Siegfried falls from grace when he forgets his Waelcyrge-Love and takes on a mortal wife; even though he cannot really be said to be blamed, since he was drugged into doing so. Nevertheless, had he cemented the Sacred Marriage between himself and Sigdrifa-Brunhilde as HE/SHE in a Spiritual Union, he would have achieved Immortality. But he did not and his slaying by Hagon with a spear may well have been the judgement on this from the Gods. He also took the Rhine-Gold, which was then thrown back into the Rhine where it belongs. Helgi has a Waelcyrge-Wife and they are not separated even in death. Here we see that nothing in the future is set and here we have two different choices within one archetype. Tolkien reinstates Sigurd as the World Saviour in his version of the tale, which is quite interesting. I have used this here because it fits perfectly with the theme - Hagal-Helgi and Sig-El - Sigurd. 

The Sig-El Rune is the Rune of the Sun; it is also the Rune of the Serpent, as seen by the shape alone - the snake slithers in this form, and also it hisses which again can be seen in the S-sound. (There may be something in this, since some old tongues, including Old English, roll the Rs; maybe the use of a sssss sound for this rune does something in regard to vibration.) This is also the Lightning-Bolt, which we featured in the 'Heil and Luck' on the Inglinga Blog - the Hvarena again. 

The rune-name Sowilo/Sowalo refers more to the 'soul', since this means 'swift-moving' referring to the ability to send the soul out of the body. The names Sol (Sun) and Soul pair up in this respect. Armanen Masters and Adepts used these formulas -

Sal and Sieg!

Alaf Sal Fena! - 'All-Hael (*) and blessings to the Power-Born!'

Heil and Sieg! - 'Hale and Victory!'

(*) Sometimes 'salvation' but 'heil' sounds better to me.

Ingwe & HelgiH the Third.


Helgi Hjorvarthson is reborn as Helgi Hundingsbane, Helgi Hundingsbane is reborn as Helgi the Haddinga. Each one has a Walkyrie-Wife - Svava, Sigrun and Kara. The last name 'Kara' is an equivalent to the male 'Kari' of Niall's Saga, and maybe even to Kali of the Hindus. Kari and Kali are both related to 'time' in the sense of a 'movement of time' - wind. The 'Lay of Kara' was never found, only mentioned of, but maybe it has as yet not been written. Helgi Hundingsbane is called 'The Scion of Ingwe', and thus in a sense an 'offspring of Ingwe'. He is a Wulginga, close kin to the Wolsungas; indeed he is the Son of Sigmund, half-brother of Sigurd the Dragon-Slayer. 

We find a place in Norfolk, East Anglia, named Walsingham; this is named after the Waelsingas - the Wolsungas. The East Angles were ruled over by the Wuffingas - the Wulfingas. Just above Edinburgh in the Scottish Lowlands is a place named Haddington, clearly derived from the Haddingas; this area was one occupied by the Angles. We have here the Three Royal Lines of the Angles - Wolsunga, Wulfingas & Haddingas. The Old English Rune-Poem mentions the Heardingas (an alternative name) under the Ing-Rune, which has to be significant. In Spellcraft Kathleen Herbert has a chapter named The Everlasting Battle which features Heoden, King of the Wulfingas, and the Heodeningas, named after him. Whether this tribe is the Haddingas/Heardingas is not certain, but the name is linked to Hedhin meaning a 'short hooded cape' - usually something like a Wolf-Skin. 

Helgi Hjorvathsson found a sword at Sigarsholm with a Red Serpent on the blade and a Coiled Snake on the sword-guard. He was told of the sword by the Walkyrie Svava, and he did great deeds using it. Helgi had a brother named Heathin: Kathleen Herbert uses this in here tale about the Everlasting Battle. Heathen meets a 'Witch-Woman' riding a huge Wolf; she is ugly and asks Heathen to lay with her, which he does not. This is an old Aryan Tale in which an ugly woman asks a hero to lay with her, and the one that does turns her into a beautiful maiden. The Witch-Woman is the Fetch (Fylgja) of Helgi. But here it should be noted that the 'Witch-Woman' riding on the Wolf is the symbolism in a dream of one of the men in the Norwegian Army that tried to invade England. This seems to be a 'Personal Fetch' but also a 'Kin-Fetch', and is the Guardian Goddess of the English. 

Twas in olden times, as Eagles screamed

and holy streams flowed from the Heaven-Fells,

when in Bralund Borghild bore to the world

a hero high-hearted, Helgi by name.

At night in hall the Norns did come,

to the lord they allotted his life and fate;

to him awarded under welkin most fame,

under heaven to be among heroes first.

His fate-thread span they to overspread the world

(for Borghild's bairn) in Bralund Castle;

they gathered together the golden threads,

and in moon-hall's middle they made them fast.

In East and West the ends they hid:

the liege lands lay there between;

on the Northern side, Neri's Sister

did hang one end to hold forever.

One evil only the Wulfing threatened,

the maiden eke who the aethling bore:


Croaked a raven hoarsely, on high-tree sitting -

hunger gnawed him - 'I know something'.

In his bernie stands who was born at night,

King Sigmund's son now the sun is risen!

His eyes flash fire, aethlingawise:

he will feast the wolves fain let it be!

....Hail to thee hero! In happiness live,

Yngvi's Scion, hold sway over men....

First Lay of Helgi Hundingsbane.

The time-span for this appearance of the Archetypal Hero - Helgi - appears to be at the start of the Age of Iron; this is why his mother is concerned, because he has been born to kindle war and strife. This is why the hunger gnaws the Raven, and that he will 'feast the wolves'. Helgi was fostered by Hagal, and whilst with him he had to wear the clothes of a bondmaid and turn the mill wheel; this tells us that this is linked to the Precession of the Equinxes and to the change of one world-age to another. Helgi was slain by Dag ('Day') at Fetter Grove. Helgi and Sigrun are said to have been reborn as Helgi Haddinga and Kara, daughter of Halfdan, as told in the 'Lay of Kara'. 

That this is a Primal Archetypal Myth can be seen in the opening line where 'Twas in olden times' is translated from Ar var Alda which means 'Primal Time' or 'First Time' - the Age of the Gods. Thus we can say of this Folk-Hero -

"I was Helgi, Son of Hjorvarth; I am Helgi, the Hound-Slayer; I will be Helgi the Haddinga."

Helgi - The Hallowed One.

The rune-stave here is made from a piece of an oak-barrel given to me when I was in the Scottish Highlands; it comes from the 'Burning of the Clavvie' which is an old Heathen Festival held near the Moray Firth.

Apples and Glastonbury


The Cweorth-Rune is equivalent to the Celtic-Ogham 'quert', related to the Apple-Tree. Since the rune is related to Valhalla, then it is also related to Avalon - the Island of Apples. We can perhaps surmise that the Golden Apples of Idunn - the Apples of Immortality - are given out to the Einheriar in Valhalla, that they may fight the 'Everlasting Battle'. 

This alternative version shows a similarity between the arm-position and the leg-position of the 'Dancing Warriors' on the Sutton Hoo Helmet below -

Again, we can perhaps surmise that the posture used formed the basis for the shape of the rune, like the Peorth-Rune and the Taefl-Posture. The spears pointing to the heel and ball of the foot has to have some importance, but I have no idea what. 

It was Woden that brought Ritual Cremation to the Folk in the North, and that the ashes be laid in a Burial Mound of the Kings and AEthlingas. This is the Rune of Ritual Cremation, whence the physical is transmuted by fire into the spiritual - the spirit is released that it may travel to Valhalla. 

The Sword of Hengest is named 'Battle-Flame' (Hunlafing Hildeleoman) and is the 'Hun-Bequest', passed from AEtla to Hengest, from the 'Hun' to the 'Engel-Kin'. As  Sweorth this rune can be connected to the Sword of Hengest, since this is a Rune of Fire. Ingwe is a Sword-God, though this is not made clear in what little we have bout our own Divine Ancestor. We do know that Ingvi-Frey gave away his sword for the love of Gerda (Earth); and that he awoke the fire within Her in order to thaw the frozen ice that enchained her in the Ice-Ages. 

As the Fire-Twirl this is the means by which the worlds were 'whisked' into Creation by Waendal (Mundilfore). Waendal is the god that wields the 'Fire-Twirl', and an alternative rune-name gives us more hints of this role - TRIS. TRIS is the name SIRT spelled backwards, and Surt is the Fire-Giant who destroys the Nine Worlds in the Fires of Destruction, that a New Creation may begin. This is the Dance of Shiva, who has this stance which is most likely a Fylfot-Swastika when the symbol is spun around. 

The connection between the 'Island of Apples' (Avalon) and the Golden Apples of Immortality (Idunn) is rather obvious, and that Idunn has to give the Apples of Immortality to the Divine Heroes in Valhalla. Avalon became associated with King Arthur and Glastonbury Tor -

Whatever academia sees in the name 'Glastonbury' it translates literally as 'Glass-Ton-Burg' which relates to the Germanic concept of the 'Glass Mountain'. It is in the top of the 'Glass Mountain' that the Spear of Marduk is stuck fast, and when he rips it out he throws it to Earth for the Third Sargon to grasp and use to defeat the Powers of Evil. It is true to say that glass-working has been found at Glastonbury, but the name itself hardly points to this being the one and only meaning of the name of the place. 'Ton' means 'town', or originally a 'fortified place', and Burg means a 'fortified place', usually on a hill, for it relates to 'berg' meaning 'mountain'. 'Tor' is a Celtic word used for the hill, on top of which is an old decrepit chapel dedicated to St. Michael - a Dragon-Slayer. 

There is a connection to Woden here, through a legend that comes from a Celtic source whence the hill is said to be the home of Gwyn ap Nudd (White, Son of the Mist) who is the Wild Hunter-God in Welsh Lore. The site is in England and not Wales, and how and when this legend appeared I have no idea. The idea that King Arthur was buried there comes from a con-trick by monks of the Glastonbury Abbey who wished to make it a site of 'pilgrimage' - and no doubt make a 'bit on the side' in the process! These legends seem to be added on at a late date, so we have to strip them away to find the truth of the area - like Silbury Hill. 

In one Germanic Legend the Glass Mountain is associated with Siward - Sigurd - and the chapel dedicated to the Dragon-Slayer seems to suggest such a link here. Indeed, St. Michael is a typical 'Dragon-Slayer', though the symbol is used more of the later 'St. George'. There is no legend as far as I know of a 'dragon' here, but that does not mean that there has never been one. The area itself is full of old legends and full of ancient sites.

Many years ago, before I started out in Odinism in fact, I first (like many) came through the 'Celtic' side (which seems to be 'acceptable' to The System), and travelled from Leicester to Glastonbury to meet with a group on May Day. I made the journey and no-one turned up! I had no idea who they were but found them in a magazine, but after that I did not bother. However, to the more positive side; I used the day to look around the place, since I had never been there before. After a couple of pints in a local pub, and a good hot meal, I decided to camp at the foot of the Tor, so I made my way there.

I had only a sleeping-bag and a divvy-bag to crawl into, and slept beneath a large tree at the base of the hill. During the night I was sort of half-asleep and half-awake and felt something grip the back of my neck - hard. No panic, but felt very wary of what was happening! The grip came loose, and I got up to look around, no-one being there; but I had been sleeping on a tree-root - shades of Lord of the Rings. Anyway, I went back to sleep after some time, and awoke again just as it was getting light, to hear the sounds of a kind of monk's chorus. Getting up to see, I walked all around the Tor, and saw nothing. At a later time, whilst talking to Asbeorn when I was in the Scottish Highlands staying with him, and he said he had had similar experiences years before at the same place. Weird!
