The Birth of Mimir and Rune Wisdom Telesummit

The Birth of Mimir and Rune Wisdom Telesummit

This post tells of the Birth of Mimir, the First Being who plays and endless timeless roles behind the lives of the ancient Norse and also of their AEsir Gods. Understanding the Nature of Mimir actually underlies understanding of the nature of the Runes. You can enroll on my Runes Course at: www.rune-path.com
And I’m also telling you that there is also a wonderful free worldwide Runes Telesummit where I am one of the teachers. It’s run by Kim Wilborn of Guardian Gateways from Monday 22nd October to Friday 2nd November, and you can find out all about the free Telesummit and join in using this link: http://www.mcssl.com/app/?Clk=5626781

So, please watch this video where I tell the story of the Birth of Mimir, the First Being:

You can read all about Mimir and Odin and the gifts he won for humanity in my Novel Rune Magic. It’s available on Amazon worldwide, as paperback or Kindle, but it’s the Amazon UK link that I’ve just shown. And in this passage from my novel Rune Magic, Declan, the hero of the novel, tells about the birth of Mimir: Declan stared the challenge at his spell-bound audience, then continued to declaim the contents of the iridescently now flaring tablet.

The First World: Muspellheim is created

‘Eventually! To one side of the void, Ginnungagap, in the endless empty darkness,
There stirred a spark: The First Spark manifested: Elemental Fire
Spark was fanned to flame. Flame grew to inferno. Inferno turned to magma flare. And in the lava-heat and fire, the first world grew, The Fire World, first of Nine: Muspellheim.
‘Then forged from fire, Musspelheim’s great guardian arose: the Fire Giant:
Surt. Surt of the mighty flaming sword.
‘Would you know more?
And what?

The Second World: Niflheim is created

‘To the other side of Ginnungagap, a place of endless night and immaculate coldness: Niflheim was formed, Second of the worlds. Niflheim: realm of ice and fog.
And at its centre lay the roaring, seething tarn of Hvergelmir, from which twelve icy gelid rivers flowed.
‘Would you know more?
And what?

‘The emergence of the First Being: Mimir

‘Over endless aeons, the essences of two worlds leached. They met in freezing Ginnungagap.
‘Gelid waters flowed to the Abyss from Hvergelmir, Whose icy blasts created glaciers. Huge blocks of ice rolled downward with continual thunder
Into the impenetrable Chasm
‘Sparks of Muspelheim too, showered the Abyss
‘And from this slow union of opposites, of Fire and Ice, amid the ice blocks of the Chasm,
Arose The Primordial Being:
Mimir.
‘Mimir’s was the Dream Time,
Huge union of Fire and Ice, Mimir’s mind was mystic, submerged in dream. Not knowing past nor future. Giant consciousness, inexpressible, ocean-like. The eternal now.
‘And what sustained the Primordial Being in his timeless contemplation?
He drank the milk of Audhumla the Gigantic Cow, the Nourisher, who also formed from the melt. And Mimir drank Audhumla’s milk.

‘Young were the years when Father-Mother, Mimir, moved outward into Time.
Parthenogenous, he begat two children of himself: a boy giant and a girl giant.
Parents of the Frost Giants’ race.
‘Would you know more?
And what?

Rune Stance and Galdr

Rune Stance and Galdr and Rune Wisdom Telesummit

This post tells how doing Rune Stance and Rune Chant (or Galdr) can greatly increase your connection to the meaning of a Rune, and can greatly increase your growth in power and healing around the life area that that Rune represents.
You can enrol on my Runes Course at: www.rune-path.com

In this video we hear about the use of Rune Stance and Rune Chant (Galdr) to deepen our connection with the Runes. The runes are the alphabet of the ancient Norse and the Germanic peoples of northern Europe. Each Rune is not only a letter of the alphabet. It is also a Gateway to knowledge and insight about our life. Each Rune tells us something about a special area of our life. And each Rune can be used to tell us about how we are doing in that area of life: doing well, or doing badly!

So, you can enrol on my Runes Course at: www.rune-path.com
On my runes course, I teach the meaning of each rune, worldwide, using a presentation and a journey. But I also teach a deeper connection to each rune, to greatly enhanced our connection, by also practising Rune Stance and Galdr (rune chant). It is in this very real, deep, body and mind connection, that deep individual lessons are seen.

Rune Stance and Galdr We use each rune as a Gateway. You then email me how you got on with your work in each rune: the journey, the Rune Stance and Galdr.

You can notice especially the ways you are holding your body when you do the rune stance and Galdr, what your issues are and where you could usefully benefit by doing healing work, empowerment, magical will work, or by doing Past Life work for example to discover vows you might have made around the life area of that rune, or crucial experiences that are setting up major scripts for this life.

Odin Drinks from The Well of Wisdom
& Rune Wisdom Telesummit

This post tells you how Odin Drinks from The Well of Wisdom, and also tells you about the forthcoming Free worldwide Rune Wisdom Telesummit led by Kim Wilborn of Guardian Gateways which starts on Monday October 22nd and runs until Friday 2nd November.

At the Telesummit, I am giving a presentation of the way the Runes alphabet is divided into three Aetts, and what that means: namely that the first group of eight runes tells us about what it needs to be a successful human being, the second Aett tells us about how we must face adversity and become the Spiritual Warrior, and the third Aett shows us how we need to become Co-Creator with the Gods.

And you can read all about Odin and the gifts he won for humanity, in my Novel Rune Magic. It’s available on Amazon worldwide, as paperback or Kindle. Here is the Rune Magic Book on Amazon UK: Please Visit https://swa.ie/RuneMagicBook 

In this passage, Declan, the hero of the novel, tells how Odin drank from the Well of Wisdom:

‘Odin learned all this magic – and there’s loads more spells he lists that he learned in the Havamal, but Odin came to see it wasn’t really getting him anywhere, unless he had wisdom as well. Odin came to see this. That’s why he realised he needed wisdom: more wisdom, ancient wisdom, if he was going to be able to use his great magical powers successfully. That’s why he came to realise after he did the ordeal of the runes, that he must then go and do another ordeal as well! He would have to drink from the Well of Wisdom as well. Life isn’t easy! Once you’ve learned one thing, you realize you have to learn another.

‘Odin realised he needed wisdom to use his magic and to understand his own true nature, his true, deep self, and how his deep self moves and does what it has to do inside the whole great web: the play of fates and-,’ and here Declan looked to the Ravens, as if for confirmation, ‘that’s why Odin journeyed to Jotunheim to find the Well of Wisdom.

‘It’s interesting that the Well of Wisdom is in the realm of giants, not in the realm of gods at Asgard,’ Declan said. ‘The reason for this is that giants are rooted in memory. Wisdom comes from memory. The Aesir gods were new incoming conquerors. They were pretty short on memory. They were not rooted to the land. That’s the point. That is why Odin was always going after giants in his obsessive quest for wisdom that might save him and save the Aesir from Ragnarok.

‘When Odin got to Jotunheim, Odin found the Well was guarded by Mimir, the First Being. Strangely, you’ll note that Mimir was the same giant whom once Odin had actually killed. Already, once, at the beginning of time, Odin had killed Mimir. It was then that Odin divided up Mimir’s ancient wisdom of oneness with all things, his mystic unity-consciousness and oneness with the land. And, now, here we have Odin coming back to Mimir who is still living. I have thought really hard about this. What I have realised is that, although you can kill Mimir in your own mind, Mimir himself goes on forever. Oneness cannot be killed. He lives on everywhere, including in the land. That is why Mimir will outlive Odin. But even if you kill him some time in your life, you can come back to Mimir if you want to – to the Mimir state of mind.’

Again the ravens skrawked and screamed and wheeled. ‘Be still Hugin; be still Munin,’ commanded Declan, and they obeyed him. ‘My power is growing,’ Declan observed to himself with evident satisfaction.

‘So, when Odin got to the Well of Wisdom,’ Declan continued, ‘he asked Mimir for a drink of the water of the Well. Wisdom is what we get from the past, and the giants’ consciousness is far better at the past than men’s or gods’. Mimir granted Odin’s request. But Mimir only granted it on one terrible condition: that Odin was prepared to sacrifice one of his own eyes.’

Brosni’s little brothers all squirmed and shuddered at the thought.

‘Without hesitation,’ Declan continued, ‘Odin plucked out an eye.’ Everyone winced as they heard this. ‘Odin placed his bleeding eye on the palm of Mimir’s outstretched hand, then he drank of the water of Wisdom.

‘So, this was the second time Odin had to make a pretty terrible sacrifice,’ said Declan, thoughtfully. ‘Another thing I have realised, already, after only eight months of magic quest, ‘is that if you want magic and wisdom, you have to make sacrifice. But I don’t like it. And I hope there are limits to what I will be asked to sacrifice.’ Declan suddenly looked vulnerable and sad, then he shook himself and continued.

‘But the gain Odin won was tremendous,’ Declan continued sounding more cheerful. ‘Although Odin had lost an eye and so he could see less well in the material world now, what he had gained was that now he could actually now see into the inner realms better, as well as the material world. Odin could now see into the shadows where the well-springs lie of the things that happen in the bright world. He could see into the realm of desires and fates which drive us; he could see more clearly the future that his own deep self was driving him to.

‘Now, Odin could see how all things are interconnected. He could see all motives. He could see what was driving people and driving the universe. He could see consequences. He could see the past and he could see the future; he could see desires and fears. Odin had vast magical powers, now.

‘Odin was a warrior and leader before he seized the magic of the runes. But, now, he was a magician as well. And he was not just a magician. He was a shape-shifter too. When Odin seized the magic of the runes and drank of the well of wisdom, Odin learned the ways and the great wisdom of the animals. Unless you have journeyed, you cannot fully appreciate the special power each animal has.

‘Four animals in particular became Odin’s fylgja, his power animals that is. These were the four animals who shared part of their soul with Odin. And also they became part of his soul; these four animals became his allies in his great work. His special fylgja were the two Ravens: Hugin and Munin, and the two wolves Geri and Freki.

The runes are the alphabet of the ancient Norse and the Germanic peoples of northern Europe. I use the Elder Futhark of the ancient Norse people. The names for each rune vary a bit geographically, but each Rune is not only a letter of the alphabet. It is also a Gateway to knowledge and insight about our life. The meanings of the runes were seized by the great Warrior Magician God, Odin, as he led the Folk Northwards, when he hung upside down trancing in the World Tree for nine days, and on the last day he fell from the tree screaming the meaning fo the runes that he had seen in the twigs and branches of Yggdrassil. Each Rune tells us something about a special area of life. And each Rune can be used to tell us about how we are doing in that area of life: doing well? or doing badly! So, for example, the first Rune, Fehu, is the rune of value and wealth, and if we study and work with it we find out how we are doing with that principle in our own individual life. And this perception gives us a chance to heal and transform around that issue. I teach the meaning of each rune, worldwide, using a presentation and a journey. But I also teach a deeper connection to each rune, to greatly enhanced our connection, by also practicing Rune Stance and Galdr (rune chant). This is where deep, body and mind connection, that deep individual lessons are seen. In this video we hear how Odin not only seized the Magic of the Runes, he also contacted his own deep inspiration when he drank the Mead of Poetry:

You can read all about Odin and the gifts he won for humanity in my Novel Rune Magic. It’s available on Amazon worldwide, as paperback or Kindle. In this passage, Declan, the hero of the novel, tells how Odin drank the Mead of Poetry:

‘Odin was a warrior and leader before he seized the magic of the runes. But, now, he was a magician as well. And he was not just a magician. He was a shape-shifter too. When Odin seized the magic of the runes and drank of the well of wisdom, Odin learned the ways and the great wisdom of the animals. Unless you have journeyed, you cannot fully appreciate the special power each animal has.

‘Four animals in particular became Odin’s fylgja, his power animals that is. These were the four animals who shared part of their soul with Odin. And also they became part of his soul; these four animals became his allies in his great work. His special fylgja were the two Ravens: Hugin and Munin, and the two wolves Geri and Freki.

‘But even now, Odin realised that as the leader of the folk, his powers were not as complete as they needed to be. The next thing that Odin was driven to realise was that even magic and wisdom together are not enough. They can’t be operated in a vacuum. They must be communicated to others. We are all part of the Web. You have a duty to use your magic wisely for the good of other people.

‘It’s a long story, but by trickery and shape-shifting Odin also managed to swallow the Mead of Poetry: magical communication. This mead was the blood of the murdered dwarf Kvasir, into which the essences of the Aesir and Vanir – the races of gods – had also been mixed in. And the whole was then fermented with honey. Poetry is sweet!

‘Just to get to the Mead of Poetry, Odin had to go to immense lengths, immense lengths. He bargained, he exploited and he tricked the very shifty inheritors and guardians of the mead, then he shape-shifted into a serpent to get into the cave where it was held, then he shape-shifted again into a beautiful young man to trick the maiden who guarded it into giving it up. Then he shape-shifted again into an eagle to escape with his belly-full of inspiration.

‘Now Odin had seized the magic of the runes, he had drunk from the well of wisdom, and he had drunk the mead of poetry. That was how Odin became the god he is. And he is now helping me to follow him. This is the road I will now travel.’ Declan looked bemused and reached out to touch Magda’s hand.
