In case you were drunk off mead or busy raiding some near by town, here's a brief overview of the headlines you missed today on Odin's Eye Media:
"There’s an interesting debate that I’ve seen drifting about the edges of the Heathen community for years, and (interestingly) it’s one of the only topics that I’ve ever seen debated more often in person than in the general Heathen “Blog’o’sphere”. Did the ancient Heathens have some concept of a “spirit guide” or “totem animal?” I’ve met plenty of Heathens who are perfectly happy to tell you all about their spirit animal, and I’ve also seen plenty who seem offended by the notion; claiming that such an idea is a holdover from Wicca rather than a “proper” Heathen practice. So what does the Lore have to say about it?"
A great article looking at totems in a different way I never will see like before.
Editors Note: This is an article from the Guardian. What would you expect to come from such a publication? This is why we titled this "a normies guide"... as there are deeper elements to these gods and their meaning to the ancestry of the people behind them. For the sake of information is why we add articles like this.
"As Iceland prepares to build its first temple to the Norse gods since the Viking age (link is external), we look at the deities that will be worshipped, including an amoral trickster and the blue ruler of the underworld"
You'll have to read this one to find out about these "Wolf Heathens" and whether or not they went "berserk" due to something they injected, or what.
Don't always believe in the fairy tales you've learned about in movies... for if you truly look into the stories what we know about elves may be more dangerous than one may believe.
"Present day movies show elves as beautiful beings who help people in their times of need. However, the original ancient form of these beings was quite hostile towards humans. Often enough, elves would lure humans to their death. The purpose of this article is to unmask and reveal the true identity of elves and to expose their hostility towards the human race."
We post articles every day, unless there was something else better to do. You can check them all out over at odinseye.media
We have tons of other content not being posted today because these overview posts for Steemit are to show only the days current posts... like for instance a few weeks ago we posted:
I won't even get into this one... lets let you go be brave and read articles we posted....
"I didn’t even know there were Viking cats."
Stay tuned tomorrow, for we shall be posting more. Hail the gods, hail the folk!! - Heathen Howl
