. . . From the mystical white hart sought by King Arthur, to Gwyn Ap Nudd, the horned lord of the Welsh Otherworld, deer have, since ancient times, been associated with the invisible world and the larger cosmic cycles, as seen with the stag’s shedding and renewal of its antlers each year. Deer were particularly sacred to the Irish druids, because out of all the animals, it was deer alone that could eat from the poisonous yew tree, known to the Druids as the Tree of Life. They also believed that deers, especially white deers, could pass with ease between the worlds. It has been proposed that a horned god, a well known example being Cernunnos, is perhaps one of the world’s earliest known gods. As “Lord of the Animals”, or “Lord of the Wild Things,” there is a shamanic element attributed to the hunt and the balance between humans and nature. One of the oldest antlered deities is the Sumerian Dara-Mah, meaning Great Stag, while in Britain, a long forgotten goddess, Elen of the Ways, is believed to find her roots in the Palaeolithic. She is old grandmother deer who knew the best pastures for the herd, and the pathways across the land. Later, Elen is glimpsed again in the Welsh Mabinogion as Empress Elen, associated with sovereignty and the fertility of the land. . .

#babyyoda is coming through with the esoteric facts AND the tea, okay?! 🍵💚 . DID YOU KNOW? : “Christmas”🎄✨ is associated with the celebration of Saturnalia, a festival held for the god Saturn in Rome around the same time of year. We can see the traditions of feasting, gift giving, merriment and music reflected in what we now know as Christmas. Saturn and Jesus were both spiritual beings that brought #abundance, order, liberation from bonds, and major changes in society; so it’s no surprise that they were venerated together.  Yule, the #pagan celebration of the Winter Solstice, would later influence the customs that Christmas adopted from its Roman counterpart, helping it morph into its own individual holiday. Though orthodox Christians banned the inclusion of pagan rites on this sacred day, the practices of decorating a Yule tree and covering the home with bright lights eventually found their way in as well. Santa himself 🎅🏾🦌 even has mythological associations!  So when you’re getting in the Christmas spirit, remember that you are celebrating a sweet blend of ritual practices and esoteric spirituality that stands for much more than the Western concept of a virgin-born Messiah. Millions have used the time of the Winter Solstice to purge and express gratitude for the year’s gifts. This is a season of reflection, sharing with loved ones, honoring the things we have, and embracing new transformation. . 🌟🌲 Happy Holidays Everyone 🌲🌟 PS: I love Christmas, I just like talking about spiritual shit cuz I’m a spiritual bitch ya know .

Взаимоотношения с богами в Северной Традиции ⠀ В Асатру (Троте) понятие «веры в богов» специфично. Помимо веры в существование богов и их способность влиять на человеческую жизнь, слово «вера» подразумевает ещё и нечто вроде взаимного договора между богами и людьми, позволяющего людям гармонично сосуществовать с природой и себе подобными. Таким образом, понятия “вера” и “верность” в Асатру (Троте) практически идентичны. Причастность к этому договору поддерживается у верующих в экзотерическом смысле посредством всевозможных обрядов, которые могут быть направлены на укрепление связей с богами, осознание божественных законов бытия, снискание божественной поддержки решений и действий, вопрошение воли богов и т.п. Духовность же асатруа составляет соблюдение однажды избранных божественных принципов и идеалов. Среди последних - свобода, уравновешенная личной ответственностью, верность нравственным ценностям и примеру божества-покровителя, активная жизненная позиция. ⠀ Духовный путь асатруа — это стремление к балансу между собственной и окружающей природой, под которой

To all the angry goblins, dementors, death eaters, and flesh eating slugs who didn’t take the time to watch the video or read the caption... - I’m NOT saying anything bad about vegans or a plant-based lifestyle. - I fully support however you decide to eat. - Because, candidly, I don’t give a fuck whether you’re vegan or paleo or keto or do intermittent fasting or weight watchers or south beach or Voldemort’s Death Inducing Detox. - Do what works for you. - That said... - I have a problem with deliberately deceiving people. - And there’s a meme circulating throughout the plant-based community saying broccoli has more protein than beef. - Specifically, it says 100 calories of broccoli has more protein than 100 calories of beef. - First...no. - That’s false. Don’t believe me? Google it. It’s really not that hard of a myth to debunk. - Second, even if it were true (it isn’t) 100 calories of broccoli is a fully grown mountain troll sized portion. It’s, literally, the size of my face. (Watch the video and you’ll see). - Whereas 100 calories of beef can fit in my palm. - So if you want to eat a metric fuck ton of broccoli to get your protein...cool. You do you. Your farts will smell worse than Hagrid’s asshole but maybe you’re into that sorta thing, in which case, god bless. - That said... - Don’t lie about how much protein is in certain foods in an attempt trick people into eating the way you believe to be superior. - Be honest. Give accurate information. - And let people eat way the way they choose to eat. - Odds are...the more open and honest you are, the more receptive they’ll be to your way of thinking. - Anyway. - Love you. - #vegan #veganfood #veganrecipes #veganbreakfast #veganweightloss #veganfoodshare #mythology #myth #foodporn #food #foodgasm

Mjöllnir  The hammer was Thor’s primary weapon. Thor (Þórr) was the god of the storm, and thunder was experienced as being the sound of his hammer crashing down on his foes. It should come as no surprise, therefore, that the Old Norse name for his hammer, Mjöllnir, probably meant “Crusher.” Follow @norse___mythology (me) #norsemythology #scandinavianmythology #vikings #viking  #valhalla #odin #heimdall #pagan #mythology #jotunheim #huldra #eikthyrnir #berserker #berserkers #warrior #warriors #midgard #asgard #jormungand #fenrir #loki #thor  #valkyrie #gameofthrones #ratatosk #shieldmaiden #shieldwall #axe #ragnarok #mjolnir.
Just finishing up a batch of ceramic bird ladies.. these beauts and some crown faces are gonna go on sale tomorrow (Tuesday 10th) at 1pm UK time. So favorite my Etsy shop and set your timers if you are after one as they are likely to sell out fast! • Again I will say although I will do my best I can not promise that orders will definitely arrive before Christmas, so please note that if you are ordering from outside of the UK (particularly outside of the EU) then please be prepared as there is always a chance that it may be delayed at customs, and although it’s unlikely, it could possibly take up to several weeks to arrive. I apologize for any inconveniences this may cause. • Small packages are sent standard delivery (not tracked) in recycled paper packaging and should be small enough to fit through your letterbox. • • #ceramicart #clay #playwithclay #ceramicbird #clayboobs #ceramicboobs #ceramicanimals #birdwoman #harpy #siren #alkonost #mythology #mythologyart #boobart #feministart #feministartist #manchesterartist #creepychristmas #christmasdecorations #handmadechristmas #claydecorations #tadaan #earthenware #christmasart #goldglitter #smallart #handmade #etsy

Lord Ganesha's elephant head symbolises the immense wisdom of a person of Perfection. Wisdom is something that comes out of manana , independent thinking and reflection. This manana can happen only when one has taken in spiritual knowledge i.e. the process of shravana has taken place. This process of shravana or intake of spiritual knowledge is portrayed as Lord Ganesha's large ears where one listens to a teacher. It also symbolises that even the wisest people are always open to hearing fresh ideas and opinions. In other words, the wise are those who always keep an open mind.  Emerging from the Lord's head is the elephant trunk. This trunk visually depicts a well-developed intellect that arises out of wisdom, the elephant head. Our intellect is of two kinds, gross and subtle. The gross intellect is used to discriminate between pairs of opposites in the world; black and white, hard and soft, easy and difficult. The subtle intellect, on the other hand, discriminates between right and wrong; permanent and impermanent and is colloquially called the conscience. In a person who has realised the Self, this intellect is extremely well-developed; both gross and subtle. Such people have clarity of thinking and a clear sense of right and wrong. At a relative level, even people who have made progress on the spiritual path experience this. Choices become clear and life becomes a lot simpler. Without clarity of thought, our worldview is bound to be confused and coloured by our own prejudices and preconceptions. Lord Ganesha's well-shaped trunk depicts a crystal clear intellect that a person of Perfection develops.! ✨🎨🌀🕉🐘👁🐘🕉🌀🎨✨ Om Shri Ganeshaya Namah ~ Hari Om Tat Sat Namah Shivaya! 🕉💙💟

Baldr | ᛒᚨᛚᛞᚱ •thanks to Johan Egerkrans for the art ✍️ •Baldr is the shining son of Odin and Frigg. He is married to Nanna and together they bore Forseti. Baldr was the most loved and respected among the Æsir because of his fairness and wisdom. All loved him except Loki, who tricked Baldr’s blind brother Hoth into killing him. Nanna was so heartbroken that she threw herself onto the funeral pyre, and together, they travelled to the realm of the dead. But, Baldr will survive Ragnarök and inhabit the heavens after his father is swallowed by Fenrir. •follow for more @neotericviking • •Skål my friends 🍻 • #vikings #ragnar #asatru #heathens #celt #helmofawe #sif #norsemythology #mitologia #mythology #norseculture #vikingspirit #bjorn #fenrir #midgard #vegvisir #northman #vikinglife #raven #baldr #vikingmythology #vikingo #vikingwarrior #vikingage #norseart
