The NRR “Chat By The Fireside” with Bryan Wilton: “Chapter 2 of ‘A Creation of The Mind’”

**A replay that seems appropriate in the current issues facing many in recent times**

Welcome to this edition of the NRR "Chat By The Fireside" with Bryan Wilton.

In this special episode Bryan reads a chapter from a book he is writing and explains the core message of what he wants to convey. The power of the human mind to create the reality we experience! This is not a new thing to understand, as it has been shared down through the ages. The indoctrination of our modern societies would have you believe however, that you exist to work, consume goods and die! This is the insidious nature of what thinking processes we have been raised with (the majority of us anyway) and why we MUST break this LIE we have all been fed.

There are many ways to do this, and Bryan talks about one of them in this episode. Please feel free to download and share this episode and to subscribe to our RSS feed which can be done on our site here by clicking the little "wireless" icon to the right of the "Share" button in the left column. Hail to each of you, and check Bryan out on Amazon as he has written a number of books you may want to get ahold of.

Until next time...

“Understandings in Becoming Through The Magickal Path” with Guest Host AGM Somnus Dreadwood

Welcome to each and every one of you to the flagship broadcast of the NRR – International Podcast Network!  This is a very special episode where we discuss the nature of connecting with spirits and moving forward to become more than what we were/are as people.  With us today is a special guest host, AGM Sommus Dreadwood, whom I have great respect for.

AGM Sommus is from a magickal order called "The Maergzjiran Cabal", and as well is the author of many books that talk about serious magickal practice in a very direct and powerful way.  This is different than any broadcast we have put forward on the subject matters than anything we have ever done before on the NRR.  You, our listeners are going to get to hear the perspectives of the Grand Master of an order talks about things in a very down to earth, and clear manner which will give you an inspirational snapshot into some of the topics relating to this type of spiritual growth that you may have never had the opportunity to see or hear before!

There is a big difference between Religion and Magick and in the approach that both take in moving forward in the growth of the soul.  One of the things that our podcast description itself talks about, is how we "explore the nature of consciousness" which is a pretty tall order.  There are many differences in esoteric/magickal practice throughout the world both in our present day and in history.  When you strip away the cultural connotations and different methods to the level of consciousness they are trying to achieve, you find that many of the differences are surface differences.  There is also much I believe you will take away from this broadcast in the understanding of what many people call the LHP is all about, rather than pre-programmed ideas from what others have said due to their own slanted view.

You can take a look at the Maergzjiran Cabal by going to their website: http://theblackcourt.com/ or by looking at them on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheBlackCourtOfficial/

 

By going to the NRR Facebook Page or to one of our other social media platforms that are linked below just above the streaming player, you will also be able to find a link to an Amazon list of books that Sommus has written that are available through that source.  You can also go when you are on their website to their reliquary and see books that they have available there along with other things that may catch your attention.  There is also a lot of information on their website, and you will hear as well on the broadcast that you can contact them through the website with any questions you may have which they would be delighted to answer.

This is an episode that you will no doubt want to listen to more than once and to share due to the subject material.  You can feel free as well to subscribe to our RSS feed through your podcast aggregator, or download the Podbean APP if you don't have one and be able to automatically receive new podcast episodes not only for us but our network partners as they are put up on the server.

Hail to each and every one of you and thank you for taking the time to listen and share the broadcast of the NRR – International Podcast Network!

The NRR “Chat By The Fireside” with Bryan Wilton: “The Power of Focused Thought”

Welcome to this week's edition of The NRR "Chat By The Fireside" with Bryan Wilton!  The episode that we have for this week is entitled "The Power of Focused Thought".

In this episode Bryan goes through some of the more difficult life experiences that he has had, and how he was able to climb out of that through understanding the power of focus thoughts.  The chain of events that this relates to is how thoughts (the ones that we are truly focused on) turning into ideas, plans, and actions which when implemented through hard work bring about the manifestation of those thoughts into our perception of reality in life.  There is a lot of very important insight within this broadcast which I hope you will catch on to.  When we are completely unfocused and undisciplined and our thought processes, we cannot expect anything but a mere reflection of that in our own life experience!  One of the things that Bryan mentions in this episode that is very, very true is: "everything that exists today was at one time a thought in someone's mind".  There does need to be the action taken upon the thought in planning, and working as hard as possible to bring it about, but without the thought focused on in the first place there is nothing to plan or work for is there?

Please feel free to share and download this episode is far and wide as possible.  Also feel free to subscribe to our RSS feed.  70% of our listenership are already on the RSS feed, and it is very easy to do.  Just click on the wireless icon on this page (which is next to the "share" button in the side column if you are on a computer) and you will have the option of either downloading the Podbean APP, or copying and pasting the RSS URL into your existing podcast aggregator.  You can also paste that into iTunes.

The Runic Series:”Tiwaz, Tiw & Tyr”

The episode that is being released this week is on their Rune Tiwaz, Tiw, or Tyr depending on the system you are using.

This is a Rune of great power and is the first rune of the third aett, meaning that it is the first level of the third degree of initiation into the Runic powers!  The last Rune that we dealt with in the second aett was Sowilo, Sol or Sig which was the culmination of the second degree of initiation bringing about the power to break free of the inertia holding us back in both personal and collective evolution.  The Rune Tiwaz is the next step which not only breaks us free from inner blockages in a more powerful way, but allows us to achieve our goals based upon the right action of our will, which is already connected to the higher aspects of our consciousness from our initiatory experiences with all the previous Runes we have gone through up till this point.  

The Rune Tiwaz or Tyr bears the name of course, of the god Tyr who was the bravest and most honorable of the gods.  He is famous for losing his sword hand to the jaws of the Fenrir wolf knowing that he was going to lose his hand beca
use it was held in the jaws of this wolf as a pledge when the gods bound him with a magical cord made by the dwarves.  That honor, the keeping of sacred oath even to one's own hurt, the perseverance of carrying on even though things are hard are all part of the energy of the Rune.  The very shape of this Rune is like that of a spear, or an arrow.  If you have moved forward building upon the initiation of each for rune in succession up to this point, the power of this rune can shoot you forward through the veil into levels of consciousness that you never thought possible!

This will definitely be a very interesting episode and one that will cause you to stop and think about the way things are done in this modern age of ours.

Byron describes this episode in his own words:
"Here we discuss the importance of oaths and the role of technology in ritual. We ask how much technology is too much, can it be a tool and when does it become a distraction."

I know I have always enjoyed the philosophical and deeply thought out podcasts that come from Hugin Hof Kindred, and I know that you do as well!  Feel free to take a look at their podcasts and their site: http://huginhof.org/ also the new archive site where their podcasts are housed directly: https://archive.org/details/HuginHofPodcastEpisode50
and also our network partners page which is linked at the side if you are on a computer, otherwise you can click here on this link and visit their permanent portal link on our network partner page: http://runesradio.wixsite.com/nrr-network

The NRR “Chat By The Fireside” with Bryan Wilton: “Go Give It a Shot”!

Welcome to this week's edition of the NRR "Chat By The Fireside" with Bryan Wilton!  The edition Bryan has for us today is entitled "Go Give It a Shot"!

In this episode Bryan talks about how important it is for us to have a proper mental focus.  It is important for us to remember that what we allow into our innermost mind is going to manifest itself in one form or another.  In all of the craziness going on in the world right now, especially with elections taking place in the U.S. there are all kinds of things going on promoting such concepts of failure and negativity that it is difficult not to be immersed in it if you are on social media of any kind.  It is important not to allow others to dump their mental and attitudinal "garbage" in our living room so to speak.  We shouldn't be doing that the others either.

Please feel free to share this broadcast and also to take the time to subscribe to the RSS feed.  70% of our listenership comes from the RSS subscription and the advantage of being subscribed is that you do not have to search for new broadcasts either from us in our flagship episodes or from the network partners who are podcast contributors.  Each time a new episode is uploaded to the server it will go automatically to your device if you have the RSS subscription.  You can use the Podbean APP which you can find your on this page, or you can use an existing podcast aggregator and even iTunes.  If you prefer streaming and downloading, and find us on several social media platforms where you can listen right from those platforms as well as the player that you have here on this page.  Feel free to spread the word!  The time for us to awaken is NOW!!

Hail to each and every one of you!

Until next time…

The Runic Series: “The Rune Sowilo, Sigel, Sol, Sig”

We are back again in The Runic Series this broadcast release. We are covering the last Rune of the 2nd Aett called in the Elder Futhark Sowilo; The Anglo-Saxon Futhorc Sigel; The Younger Futhark Sol; The Armanen Futhorc Sig.

This Rune is an extremely powerful and fortunate Rune! This is the culmination of this row, and as Wunjo was the culmination of the 1st row, it represents the reward and the fullness of the initiatory process that the row represents! When we look at the Rune poems we see that this Rune represents a ray of the sun (we must remember that in the northern mythologies the sun is feminine and the moon is masculine) and safety, victory, along with the breaking free of inertia. The Old Icelandic Rune poem describes this Rune as the "lifelong enemy of ice". Realizing that each Rune builds in the initiatory process of our awakening one upon the other, that the reward of the connection established through our successful understanding and assimilation of the Rune Elhaz which we talked about in our previous runic broadcast, is the breaking of the bonds which hold us back in our evolution! The balance of the soul complex, and the union with the fetch, brings about the ray of the sun which is a victory of epic proportions in our path of expansion and growth. Yes, this Rune can refer to physical victories in battle if you happen to be a military person, it can also refer to safety on sea voyages, but we need to understand that esoterically it means much more than that. Isa the Rune of ice which we covered earlier, has its positive points and allows us to contract into a better conductor of the runic energies. It also represents a force of inertia as a frozen river does not flow but is held in suspended animation. The Rune we are talking about today causes that ice to melt and movement, growth and expansion are the result. In the initiatory process represented by this entire row the full effectiveness that this Rune represents cannot in my opinion be experienced unless we do follow through with the work that is necessary with the preceding runes as the union with the fetch is the pivotal point upon which the doorways are opened in the depths of our soul complex to the energies of the divine in a very direct way.

One of the statements made in the Armanen row relates this Rune and to the 11th spell song of Odin where the galder of this Rune is sung into the shield of the warrior.

It says "safe he goes out to battle, safe he comes back from battle...” This can also refer to the perils that one faces in the battlefield of the mind where we are moving forward in the expansion of our awareness. There are many things that are undreamed of in the hearts of men and women that exist in the multi-verse whose chief joy is the destruction of the human spirit – – there are great rewards in esoteric practice and there are also great perils. These perils may not be physical but they can be just as damaging to the psychological complex of the individual. Union with the fetch gives you the authority to stand in the center of the circle of the multi-verse because now you are not just standing in your ego, you are standing in union with the very impulse which brought you into incarnation in the first place!

Until Next Time. . .

This is definitely an episode that you will not want to miss and something that will no doubt be of great interest to you.  Below Byron describes the topic they are addressing in his own words:

"Here Lore and I discuss magic in a historical sense asking weather our ancestors practiced it and how they may have done so. We look to the Lore and Sagas for possible examples and ask when and how it is appropriate to meditate from the Asatru perspective."

Find them on our Network Partner's Page: http://runesradio.wix.com/nrr-network or their main site: http://huginhof.org/

Also check out the NRR links at the bottom of this posting

The Main Focus to Remember

Welcome to this week's Flagship Broadcast of the NRR! This week is a bit different with the episode entitled "The Main Focus to Remember"

This is a shorter broadcast, but very important as what is discussed here is VITAL for growth to all who are serious about real esoteric practice. There must be a REASON for delving into the depths of consciousness or else one is only playing games. This core reason is discussed from the new headquarters of the NRR - from a cell phone no less!

Please feel free to download and share this episode and in spite of it's brevity take real note of it. We need to understand so much in terms of purpose in order to awaken ourselves as well as inspire others in their process of awakening!

Until Next Time...

TAC Halls on The NRR: “Frith”

Welcome to this weekend edition on the NRR International Podcast Network! This weekend we have a brand-new edition of the TAC Halls podcast entitled "Frith".

The NRR “Chat By The Fireside” with Bryan Wilton: “My Two Cents”

Welcome to this week's edition of the NRR "Chat By The Fireside" with Bryan Wilton! This week's episode is entitled: "My Two Cents".

In this episode Bryan goes into detail talking about how important it is for us to have strong foundations, not only individually but collectively. No one ever affected real change in their lives by changing the foundations of their belief every 30 days just because something was hard. There are many interesting things and important things, that need to be considered in this broadcast. It is my hope that you will take serious time to listen to this broadcast and absorb what it is that Bryan is trying to say.

The Runic Series: “The Rune Algiz, Elhaz or Eolh”

The topic of our new core broadcast released this week is the Rune known in the Elder Futhark as Algiz or Elhaz, and in the Anglo-Saxon Futhorc as Eolh.

This is the next stage in the process of awakening when going through the initiatory phases of each Rune in its particular order. Last week we went through how Orlog and the dice cup of Perthro indicates our taking of responsibility for our own actions and our lives in a conscious manner. In other words exercising our free will truly, something which very few people actually do (most people react to one situation or another and are always in a reactionary phase). When we reach this level of initiation and understanding, we are faced with the Rune Algiz which is a Rune of protection and of a special kind of initiation. It is an insulator between that which is negative and trying to hamper the evolution of the soul in the more esoteric sense, and although it can be used in a physical sense for actual protection in the world of Midgardhr, it has this power as well to insulate one against the inertial force that tries its best to resist growth. This accomplishes two things: First, it keeps that which is unhelpful on the outside; second, it keeps you inside enclosed within its protection. While you are enclosed within this protection the second level of its power is revealed in which because of your mastery of true free will, is a connection to the fetch or the higher genius! This is the Rune not only of protection but of the inner Valkyrie. We see a type and the shadow of this in the Saga of The Volsungs where the hero braves the ring of fire to awaken the Valkyrie Brynhild, who then teaches him the secrets of Runes and of many other wondrous things! This is a Rune that grants temporary protection from the forces that are unhelpful to one's evolution, in order that the individual may become energized through this connection to the inner Valkyrie. This connection being realized in the person's life gives them the power to step forth from this enclosure and move forward in victory!

"Here Lore and I discuss magic in a historical sense asking weather our ancestors practiced it and how they may have done so. We look to the Lore and Sagas for possible examples and ask when and how it is appropriate to meditate from the Asatru perspective."

The NRR “Chat By The Fireside” with Bryan Wilton: “A Life of Expectation”.

Welcome one and all to this week's edition of the NRR "Chat By The Fireside" with Bryan Wilton!  This week's edition is entitled "A Life of Expectation".

Bryan.jpg


In this episode Bryan talks about a new book that he is writing that is not only for the heathen community but for the general world at large.  He talks about some very important points that we also hit on in some of our flagship broadcasts that are vitally important for seeing change occur not only in our own lives but in the world we live in.  Many times we have talked in our broadcasts about overcoming the indoctrination that we have been subjected to since art birth, Bryan describes this in different words very accurately and although he uses different terminology the concept is strikingly similar.  People are beginning to understand more and more as they awaken that we have been enslaved, or more properly, that we have been trained to enslave ourselves both collectively and individually in such a way as the vicious cycle of failure, and settling for what has been decided on as the "norm" all of our lives.  We need to be able to break free from this in order to truly change our thought processes and allow ourselves to realize not only the negative consequences, but the positive consequences of taking responsibility for our own actions and thoughts.  I thoroughly enjoyed this broadcast and I trust that you will as well.

Please feel free to download and share this episode and also to subscribe to our RSS feed which has been made even easier!  Why subscribe to the RSS?  If you subscribe to the RSS feed you do not need to worry about streaming or downloading any episodes from players online, or wondering if the new episode has been released.  It automatically goes to your podcast aggregator the moment it hits the server and if you have your podcast aggregator set up in such a way as to give you notifications, it will even notify you when the new episodes have been put up on the server for your listing.  The majority of people that listen to the NRR are on the RSS feed already but if you are not already there yourself just take a look at the button on this page if you are on the server site, which looks like a little wireless signal next to the "share" button or go to our Facebook page which is linked in the NRR links section just above the player and click the use that button in the header of the Facebook page!  Once you download the app just use the app's search feature to search "NRR – International Podcast Network", add us to your favourites and your subscribed!  You can also use that app for any podcasts that you desire whether it is on Podbean or not simply by pasting the RSS URL of whatever it is you want to subscribe to.  I personally push this app because I have found it to be one of the best quality podcast "catchers" out there.

Let's hear what Bryan has to say…

The Runic Series: “The Rune Perthro or Peorth”

The Runic series being back in full swing again, we are approaching the Rune "Perthro" or "Peorth" in this episode. This Rune does not have a counterpart in the Younger Futhark or in the Armanen Futhorc. There are some aspects of this Rune that are absorbed where the latter Rune rows are concerned in the Rune Bjarkan (Younger), or Bar (Armanen). Seeing that this is the case, we are concentrating on the Anglo-Saxon Rune poem and the Elder Futhark and the Anglo-Saxon Futhorc.

Perthro.jpg

This Rune is one that talks about "fate" as its very appearance is that of the dice cup on its side. Casting the dice from a dice cup was a game that was played by warriors and nobles alike and was a game of chance. We learned that there are many positive connotations to this that can affect our lives, as our Orlog (actions) are a great illustration of the dice being cast from the cup-- our lives both individually and collectively being the "cup". There can be negative things as well as what story or adventure is filled only with sunshine and roses? There are always challenges to overcome or there is really no story to tell. This is borne out in the sagas of the heroes and the mythologies of our gods and goddesses. This Rune teaches us that we are responsible for what comes out of that cup as Wyrd through the actions we have put into it! There is no one else to blame or to point fingers at.

 

As we have been stating all along throughout this series, each Rune builds upon the other in the advancement of the initiatory process of awakening. The Rune we talked about the came just before this one is the key (along with every other Rune that we have covered so far) to understanding how we can control through our connection to the powers of the multi-verse, the ancestors, wights and gods what "dice" or Orlog we put into the "cup" that is our lives. This Rune can also be used as a means to understand what our Orlog IS, for it is a stave of mystery connected directly to the Norns. This dice cup could also be related to the "well of wyrd" in a sense because what is put into it and then cast out, like the dice in a game, is very similar in concept to our actions being woven forth from the well of wyrd by the Norns into the tapestry of our fate. Listen to this episode and you'll get the full story of what I'm talking about here briefly in this post.

Until Next Time...

TAC Halls on the NRR! Episode Entitled “FRITH”

Welcome to this weekend edition on the NRR International Podcast Network!  This weekend we have a brand-new edition of the TAC Halls podcast entitled "Frith".  This episode is definitely thought-provoking and is something that will carry through the weekend until we release our core broadcast on Tuesday during the noon hour.

Frith is such an important subject and one that is very often misunderstood in today's day and age.  I believe that you will find this to be an episode that challenges you and also encourages you to look after those that are closest to you and watch as well, how your actions affect those that are closest to you.  We can be something that is a positive and powerful force in our families and our communities, or we can be that which tears things down and makes them of no value.

The NRR “Chat By The Fireside” with Bryan Wilton: “Black Panthers Can Eat A…”

***Strong language advisory listener and viewer discretion is advised***

Welcome one and all to this week's edition of the NRR "Chat By The Fireside" with Bryan Wilton!  This week's edition is entitled "Black Panthers Can Eat A…" Which kind of sets the tone for the passionate episode that this is after the death of a police officer in Texas who was a bonafide Heathen.

Bryan.jpg

In this episode Bryan talks about how important it is for us to take a look around us in this day and age, making sure that we take care of ourselves and our families.  This is not an episode that talks about hating people but rather about loving those that are close to you and watching out for their best interests as well as your own.  So many times in our modern society, and the way media portrays things, people are afraid to stand up for themselves and to do what's necessary to protect those they love.  We are not doormats for people to wipe their feet on.  There is a language advisory in effect to this particular broadcast, so if you are sensitive to language because of the fact that your children may be listening you may want to exercise advisory caution.  The message of this broadcast however is very clear and very precise.  Others may have a different opinion and at the NRR we allow those opinions to be expressed throughout the entirety of the spectrum that we call Heathenry and each has its validity in its own perspective.  What is presented in this broadcast is one that I believe exercises a great deal of common sense when it comes to putting the emphasis and focus on those that we love and care about most; are inangarth, our family and friends over what might be politically correct in the eyes of societys gone insane.

Let's hear what Bryan has to say…

The Runic Series: “The Rune Eiwhaz, or Eoh”

This week we are returning to our runic series in our core broadcasts. Today the Rune that we are discussing is found in this form only in the Elder Futhark, and the Anglo-Saxon Futhorc. This Rune is called in the Elder row Eiwhaz, and in the Anglo-Saxon Futhorc, Eeoh. This Rune does not have a representation in the Younger Futhark or the Armanen Futhorc. It is however partially absorbed by the Rune found in both of those systems called Yrr. We will get to that at a future point when we are further along in the series.

Eiwhaz.jpg

This is a very powerful Rune because it means in a literal sense "the Yew tree" and as such is connected very much to the concept of death. This is not in a negative sense per say but in a transformative sense. If you are to picture the world tree, you can picture this Rune as being representative of its vertical axis reaching from the depths of Hel to the heights of Asgard. If you listened to the core broadcast on this subject you will have heard read to you the Rune poem and the cryptic words that are spoken out  regarding this Rune. The ideographic symbolism of this Rune is one that is a connection point, in the creative and destructive powers of the multi-verse, to the ancestral spirits and to the gods and goddesses themselves along with everything in between. Some people have postulated that the meaning of this Rune could be correlated to the "death" card of the tarot though this is a mere conjecture. What we do know is that even in post-Christian times the Yew tree in Europe used to be planted in many graveyards as an appropriate tree for that venue. This tree also bears a very beautiful type of fruit which is extremely pleasing to the eye – – but is as deadly to eat as it is to behold! In fact I have heard (as this tree does not grow in the same way in North America as it does in Europe) that if you eat one of the berries from this tree there is nothing they can do for you to save your life; you are done! There were also two trees that were equivalent in the mythologies to the world tree. One of them being the Ash tree, the other being the Yew tree. This is again conjecture on my part though some may agree/disagree, but I believe that this duality represents the concept of the world tree through religious eyes (the Ash tree) and the concept of the world tree through the eyes of the sorcerer or esoteric initiate (the Yew tree). The Yew tree may even have been the tree through which initiatory rites were performed, as this tree emits a poisonous gas which after prolonged exposure can cause hallucinatory experiences. Look into some of these matters yourself and come to your own conclusions.

Long story short this is not a Rune for the newbie but one for the person who has experienced enough self-control through experience with previous runes, to be able to withstand psychologically the window this Rune opens up to the ancestors and to the spirits (wights, gods, or otherwise). In other words, if one is not ready and successfully invokes the power of this Rune into their lives, it can really screw with their head and their concept of who they are as a person. Death is the portal that we all must eventually go through, and what is on the other side of that portal is not what many expect.


Until Next Time....

Shoemaker’s Hall on The NRR: “The Practice of Symbel (Sumbel)”

Welcome to each and every one of you to the NRR we can special edition!  This weekend we have a small video mini cast from our network partner the TAC.

This video mini cast is part of the Shoemaker's Hall serious and deals with a subject that is important to many people who practice Heathenry: "The Practice of Symbel".  Sometimes this is also spelled SUMBEL and is referring to the same thing

TAC_Banner.jpeg

This is one of the more informal aspects of high rites in Heathenry or Asatru and sometimes is it incorporated in part in the highest rites called Blot though not necessarily.  This is a pretty good synopsis of how Symbel is formed and as a point of trivia that you may or may not know, our modern day practice of "New Year's Resolutions" which happens at the end of the Yuletide season, stems directly from some of the practices of Symbel that took place at that time of year.

Please feel free to download and share this video and also to subscribe to our RSS and much more convenient if you live a life that is on the go!  You can either paste the URL for our RSS feed into your existing podcast aggregator, if you have one, or download the Podbean APP and do a simple search "NRR – International Podcast Network" or "NRR – Northern Runes Radio" once you have the app installed.  That's all there is to it!  If you have any questions about how to acquire this application or subscribe to the RSS feed please feel free to email us at runesradioGmail.com or through clicking on one of the social media platform links that are listed just above the streaming player on this page, and messaging us from there.

The NRR “Chat By The Fireside” with Bryan Wilton: “Keep Your Eye On The Prize”

Welcome to this week's edition of the NRR  "Chat By The Fireside" Bryan Wilton!  The episode Bryan has for us today is entitled "Keep Your Eye on the Prize".

Bryan.jpg

In this episode Bryan talks to us about the importance of avoiding distractions, as they can lead us on a merry goose chase to nowhere.  There will always be challenges, and different arguments along with different agendas that will rise up and face us no matter what it is we desire to do or accomplish.  If we allow ourselves to become embroiled in all of these things we will never see what it is that we truly desire accomplished and made into the flesh in the world.  The secret to making what our dreams consist of a reality in our experience is through focusing on those things that are the prize that we wish to see made manifest.  We also need to understand very fully whether the prize we are actually seeking is worth having or not.  There is some important information in this podcast episode that I think transcends what ever system or activity one involves themselves in whether it be mundane business, or any type of practice; endeavor; focus that we may put ourselves into.  Listen between the lines of speech so to speak, and understand with ears that can hear and eyes that can see.

Let's hear what Bryan has to say…

The Runic Series: ” The Rune Jera, Ger, Ar”

 The Rune we are dealing with today is called Jera in the Elder Futhark, Ger in the Anglo-Saxon Futhorc, and Ar in the Younger and Armanen Rune sytemss.

Jeraforms.jpg

This Rune is often overlooked as one simply talking about "harvest time" (which it does talk about in its most mundane essence) but it is also the Rune of the eternal cycle. In the 1st row we talked about a Rune called Gebo or Gyfu which represented the gift for a gift principle. The Rune we are talking about today is the "sowing and reaping" principle on the scale of the multi-verse and the human being. Patience is one of the lessons that this Rune teaches, as there is always a period of time that passes between the sowing of the seed, the growing of the desired plant, and the final harvest of the crop. It is the Rune that discusses birth, life, death, and rebirth – – the cycles that continue as a part of natural law. We can see this in the human being where our actions (Orlog) are planted into the well of Wyrd and eventually are woven out of that well by the Norns into our experience! Even the world tree itself is subjects to the law of the cycles as we hear of in the stories of Ragnarok and the rebirth into the new cycle that takes place after the massive destruction. The gods and the goddesses cannot escape the cycles, and neither can we! There is also a tremendous Vanic energy involved with this Rune and a link to Freyr indicated in the Rune poems. The gods and goddesses of the Vanir are the gods and goddesses of the cycles so there is little wonder of this influence within this runic power. We cannot escape the cycle that this Rune represents, but we can change the type of harvest that we will receive if we heed and pay attention to what Orlog individually and collectively, we are dropping into the well of Wyrd.

Until next time...

The NRR “Chat By The Fireside” with Bryan Wilton: “Revealing The Man”

Welcome to our listeners to this week's edition of the "NRR Chat By The Fireside" with Bryan Wilton!  The episode of the Bryan has for us today is entitled "Revealing the Man".


Bryan.jpg

This is an important episode that goes into some detail as to what underlies the concept so often talked about in Heathenry: "we are our deeds".  This looks like a simple statement if just spoken casually, but there is so much more to it.  There are the circumstances that we each face in life and our response to those circumstances.  There are also the thought processes that we have which give rise to our deeds.  One of the questions Bryan asks is "what kind of soil do we cultivate in our minds?".  The message Bryan gives here is one that really bears taking note of, because there is a saying in relationship to deeds and thoughts that most people know: "as a man think it, so is he".  There is another common quote out there as well "our focus determines our reality".  Why?  What we focus on and what we nourish within ourselves is what eventually comes out in our actions and words.  Success is not always about money and possessions, those are nice and there is nothing wrong with such, but the quality of who a person is shines forth as the greatest success of all.

Let's hear what Bryan has to say…

The Runic Series: “The Rune Isa or Is”

The broadcast released today is on the subject of the Rune Isa in the Elder Futhark, Is in the Anglo Saxon, Younger and Armanen rows. The appearance of this Rune is the same in all of the different runic systems. The general energy of this Rune is one of contraction. We talked in the last broadcast about the Rune Nauthiz being an experience of inertia, while this Rune is inertia itself. On the negative side this Rune represents the deceptiveness of ice which can be beautiful to behold but deadly to put your trust in. For example, the ice over top of the river may be beautiful to look at but unless it is truly frozen solid through you are taking a tremendous risk in walking over that ice as it could very easily crack open allowing you to fall into the icy waters never to be seen again until spring.

Isa.jpg
On the more positive side we see that this contract of influence is also one in which conduction can be increased. This is a Rune that one can use in their personal work to increase their ability to channel Rune might! It is not a Rune that one would wish to send upon somebody in an active sorcery unless there was no choice but to do so, for that could cause some pretty nasty things, but in personal use one has the ability to flip into the positive aspect of the Rune and increase their ability substantially.

The Runic Series: Nauthiz, Nyd, Nauth, Not

The broadcast being released today is on the Rune Nauthiz, also known as Nyd, Nauth and Not depending on which Runic system you are using. This is a Rune that is all about challenges and about obstacles placed in our path over which we have little or no control. It is often referred to as the "Nail of the Norns" and doesn't have very much positive associated with it at least when looked at just from the outside. This Rune also along with its challenges gives the solution to the problems at hand if one knows how to listen and understand what this energy is trying to convey to us in time.

Nauthiz.jpg

The energy represented by this Rune and as a window through which this energy flows, is one of challenge, constraints and hardship. Believe it or not, this is not to destroy the person involved with these challenges but rather to provide the resistance necessary for growth to actually occur. If everything happened without any problems or any challenges to overcome where would growth that into the picture? We are now in the 2nd level of initiation into the runic powers and in order for these runic energies to have any use to us we must grow and become something more because they are something more! This does not happen if there are not challenges to overcome!


Until Next Time...

The NRR “Chat By The Fireside” With Bryan Wilton: “The Cusp of Greatness”

A warm welcome to each and every one of you!  As promised here is this week's edition of our NRR "Chat By The Fireside" with Bryan Wilton!  The episode that Bryan has for us this week is entitled "The Cusp of Greatness".  This is the last new episode that we are going to be posting for approximately two weeks as I am going to be on a full hiatus finishing the book I am writing to be on schedule.  We have over two hundred episodes in the archives here that you can enjoy as well as episodes that are on our satellite YouTube channel!  Once all of this is complete everything will be back to normal on the posts and releases of the network.

Bryan.jpg

In this episode Bryan talks about some very important aspects of success in controlling our thoughts and seeing the ever increasing tide of our ways passing not only through our lifetimes but into successive generations!  This episode is a true encouragement for each and every one of us to continue to put aside those things that hold us back and move forward allowing the seed of greatness that the gods have gifted to us in our lives not only to see things expand and become more with our own lives but also with our descendents who will carry the torch after us.  This is something that I think we need to really understand as you listen to this broadcast.  We are not only looking to expand ourselves and the ideals of what we believe in this world in our lifetime – but we are being looked upon as examples by our children!  Do we want to see what we are reflected in their lives?  If we press on and continue regardless of the challenges that we may face then we can answer a resounding yes.  We do need to sacrifice the victim mentality, and the idea that success is just out of our grasp.  We need rather to have the attitude that we can and will succeed as long as we keep putting off aside those thought processes that hold us back and continue with the knowledge that we do have within us the seed of power to achieve our will!

Please feel free to share and download this episode.  Feel free also to subscribe to our RSS feed simply by going to the top right (if you are on a computer) column of the webpage and clicking the button just to the right of the "share button".  If you are on a device simply click the menu button at the top left corner of your device page and you will have the same column appear just on the left of your device.  Hail to each and every one of you and thank you for taking the ride with us on the NRR – International Podcast Network!

Hardcore Esoteric Series: “The First Key To Success”

Welcome to each and every one to this edition of the core broadcast of the NRR – International Podcast Network! This is the 1st episode in our hard-core esoteric program, and one that you will definitely not want to miss out on if you are at all interested in the esoteric aspects not only of our ways but the mechanics of how these things work across the board.

enlightenment2.jpg
The episode today is entitled "Altered Consciousness: The 1st Key to Success". This is a vitally important episode and the 1st of 3 major keys that one needs to master and understand – – and put into practice if there is to be any success in esoteric or magical work. Ignoring these 3 keys is the sure fired recipe of failure. The greatest challenge is actually presented within these 3 keys because it goes head to head with the indoctrination that we have all been subjected to in Western society for decades if not centuries. It does not matter whether you are dealing with runes, or with seidhr or with any other system in existence, if you do not master these 3 keys you do one of 2 things. 1st and most common, you find that everything you try to do ends in failure and in discouragement walk away feeling that it doesn't work. 2nd, though less common, there is a latent talent within you that partially allows you to access some of these keys unknowingly causing the opening of the door in your mind to things which you cannot control. I don't think I need to go into much detail into how dangerous that can be for a person's psychological makeup.

We have touched on the esoteric in very general ways in the past and have talked about some fairly benign methods in which you can deal with energies specifically with the runes. That was kindergarten, this is far beyond that and I do not believe you will find much of what is said here written in books and if there is something written it would be very difficult to find with all the great numbers of material that's out there. This level of indoctrination that has affected our lives in Western society whether one has grown up in a religious environment or not, grows stronger with each generation. Even in magical lodges the things that I'm about to talk about in this broadcast are not discussed in the same measure of detail because of the fact that it is assumed that through the practices given to you, it will become apparent to you. This is proving not to be the case more and more as time goes on and new generations begin studying these matters. That should be a big red flag to anybody sincerely teaching these materials that perhaps the old methods of instruction are not effective the way they once were with newcomers. This is been something that is been on my mind for a long time even while I was doing some of the esoteric work previously put forward on this station. What we are doing now, aside from the mundane applications of opening up time slots for our network partners, is providing a remedy for that problem. There are others out there that have some good things and I would encourage you to really search and find other voices out there as well as I'm sure there are others who have seen what I have seen here too. It may be difficult but not impossible to find such people. I have not found many in my own searches prior to doing this broadcast though there are some.

It is our hope that this is something that will strike a chord with you and inspire you to move forward on the path that you have chosen. If this is not the path you have chosen and you prefer to stay on the exoteric side of things, that's fine. Understanding the mechanics of how the esoteric works will still be a benefit to you as you will understand the dividing line much more clearly between the religious side of things and the magical side of things. The religious and the esoteric are not the same. Sometimes in the past we may have been guilty of blurring the lines a bit, that's due to the fact that we have tried to show both sides of the coin and there are overlaps which may confuse some. With our network partners doing such an awesome job in presenting the religious side of things, and more network partners coming on stream very soon, we have felt the freedom open up to us like a doorway swung wide to be able to present the esoteric side in this manner without blurring lines and with a far more powerful focus. May this be something that enriches your life!

The next episode that we release is going to be the 2nd key and it will be entitled "Self Control in Altered States". These episodes are so foundational to your success I truly hope that you will share them widely, download them, listen to them more than once because it will do nothing but help you understand some of the reasons why we have said the things that we have set in the past, and how you can implement things that you may already possess to further yourself in the understanding of your deep inner soul and its connection to the creation of your reality! Hail to each of you!

Until next time…

The NRR “Chat By The Fireside” with Bryan Wilton: “Boots On The Ground”!

A hearty hail to each and every one of you!  Welcome to this week's edition of the NRR "Chat By The Fireside" with Bryan Wilton.  The episode Bryan has for us today is entitled "Boots On The Ground".

Bryan.jpg

In this episode Bryan explains very poignantly how important it is for us to have connections with other heathens that are more than just what could be called "Internet Heathenry".  This takes overcoming the challenge that many face which is the fear of rejection.  It is true that sometimes we can contact somebody and there is no connection that will be there.  This is not a call to retreat back into a cave but rather to continue pressing on and meeting people of worth, because there are many out there who are.  If we give into fear or into laziness and just settling for what we can find online it will hinder our growth greatly.  There is something to be said about the special experienced of not only good conversation, but raising a horn with another heathen.  I think this is a very important thing to bear in mind because you do not really get a chance to know somebody if you never have any conversations with them other than text posts.  Even if all you can do is have a conversation with people through some of the video technology that is out there due to geographical distances and so forth, that gives you an opportunity to get to know someone far more than just posts on a message board.  All of these things work together for the growth of all!

Let's hear what Bryan has to say…

The Runic Series: “Hagalaz, Haegl, Hagal”

The broadcast that is being released this week is one of auspicious and powerful connotations. It is the 1st Rune of the 2nd Aett known in the Elder Futhark as Hagalaz, the Anglo-Saxon Futhorc as Haegl, the Younger and Armanen systems as Hagal.


HagalTrio.jpg

When you take a look at each of the Rune poems that are related to this Rune, you see that it is referred to in a destructive manner and in the creative matter. We see this most prominently in the Anglo-Saxon Rune poem but it is there in the Norwegian, and the Old Icelandic Rune poems as well where it talks about this Rune being “the whitest of grains” or the “the coldest of grains” – – a grain is a seed and in the Anglo-Saxon Rune poem it is referred to directly as a “seed”. Another interesting phenomenon about this Rune especially in its Younger and Armanen forms is that you can extrapolate it into a three-dimensional object from which you can generate every Rune in all the systems! This is what is meant when I referred to this Rune as the “Mother Rune”. Also it’s aspects of destruction (the meaning of the Rune is “hail”) are balanced out by its creative aspects for we are told in the Anglo-Saxon Rune poem that after it has been “whirled around in the vaults of heaven, it then turns to water”. Water is the life-giving substance to all things that live organically that we are aware of on our planet. It speaks to us of cycles – birth, life, death, and rebirth. Everything submits to this cycle except the Runes themselves which goes to show what place they hold in the multi-verse. In this episode we talk about the creative and destructive powers of this Rune and how this is the beginning of initiation into a new level of consciousness – – growing ever deeper and deeper towards the ultimate culmination to which even the gods aspire after.


Pursue the goal!  Follow the cycle!


Until next time...

The NRR “Chat By The Fireside” with Bryan Wilton: “Never Quit”!

Welcome this week to the NRR "Chat By The Fireside" with Bryan Wilton!  The episode Bryan has for us today is entitled "Never Quit"!!

Bryan.jpg

In this episode Bryan talks about how people need to continue to have a positive attitude, and in spite of whatever number of failures they may experience, keep going and keep pressing forward!  This is an excellent example in this show of the virtue of perseverance and industriousness.  Bryan gives some examples of people who have experienced a great deal of challenge and yet through their perseverance and continuing without succumbing to a failure mentality, have succeeded and ended up bettering themselves and their situation.  This is a very pertinent message for us today to remember and to put into practice in our lives.  One of the things I really like about the Chat By The Fireside is the fact that Bryan puts forth practical and down-to-earth messages that are valuable to each and every one of us, far more than we may even realize.

Please feel free to download and share this episode far and wide and also to subscribe to our RSS feed which can be found very easily by going to the top right corner of the page (on our podcast server site) and clicking on the button just to the right of the "share" button.  That will open up a page that will allow you either to download the Podbean APP for yourself, or copy and paste the RSS URL into an existing podcast aggregator.  You can also find us on iTunes and there is a link on the podcast server site to that as well on the right hand bar.

Hail to each and every one of you!

The Runic Series: “The Rune Wunjo, or Wynn”!

Hail to all of you wonderful folk!

The episode that is being released today is on the last Rune of the 1st Aett or row called in the Elder Futhark Wunjo, and the Anglo-Saxon Futhorc Wynn. This Rune is the climax and culmination of the initiatory process represented by this 1st level in the Futhark systems of the Runes!


Wunjo.jpg

As you will notice its shape is like that of a standard or a flag. This Rune is the realization of so many things: Tribal Frith; the balancing of the soul complex; the finding of one’s place in the Folk Soul itself; the joy found in living in harmony with one’s fellow beings! It is a powerful, positive Rune and is in a sense the reward of the self-sacrifice described in the Rune Gebo we discussed last week. All of the Runes build on one another and are a part of an initiatory process that leads one to a full awakening to who they really are, and where they fit in with in the universal consciousness! As this is the end of the 1st layer of initiation in the Runic systems, it is also the preparation for the 2nd layer of initiation which starts with the Rune we will be discussing next week: Hagalaz. From this point things just get deeper and deeper and more and more primal to the consciousness of the universe itself – that part from which even the gods themselves spring!


Until Next Time...

“Shoemaker’s Hall” on the NRR! “A Review of Norhalla’s Children’s Books”!

Welcome this weekend to the release of our network partners video mini cast "Shoemaker's Hall" from The Asatru Community!  The episode we have this weekend is actually a book review of Norhalla, and the wonderful books they have for small children.

TAC_Banner.jpeg

As Brett says there are a few liberties taken with the stories to make them easier for children to understand but as a general experience, they are wonderful tools to use to help your children get to know the gods and the stories that they are in.  There is even a section at the back of each story that deals with Runes!

This is something that definitely will be a positive influence in your home if you have a family with children that are of a young age, and something to add to your arsenal if you have grandchildren!  We want to give a special thank you to our Network Partner The Asatru Community for these wonderful little mini casts and we appreciate the time and effort put into them, as I know how difficult it is to process video!

Let's watch the video...

The NRR “Chat By The Fireside” with Bryan Wilton: “Take Possession of Your Own Mind”

A very warm welcome this week to the NRR "Chat By The Fireside" with Bryan Wilton!  The episode Bryan has for us today has been entitled "Take Possession of Your Own Mind". This is an episode that I believe each and every one of us need to really pay attention to it because it has some vital information in their for those of us that want to continue on the path of growth.

Bryan.jpg
In this episode, Bryan talks about how important it is for us to have control of our thought processes, and the way we view ourselves in the situations that we face.  Do we focus on those things that not only build us up as individuals, but help others along the way?  Is what we focus on that which tears others down and succumbs to the victim mentality?  We have the choice as to what we are going to place the emphasis on in our thoughts, plan making, and ultimately the actions that we do to bring things about.

Another note in this episode that I thought was really important was that we can have a positive reaction to failure.  How can that be you may ask?  Simply through taking the attitude that the failure is a teaching lesson, and moving ahead to achieve the goal successfully learning from the failure!

Let's hear what Bryan has to say…

The Runic Series: The Rune Gebo, or Gyfu!

The continuation of "The Runic Series"!

Gebo, Gyfu

This Rune is the symbol of the “gift for a gift” principle upon which the very tribal concept of “Frith” and one’s relationship with the earth, gods/desses, spirits of the land and the ancestors themselves (as well as relationships between living kin) is based. 


Gebo.jpg

In both systems the Rune looks like a big X and represents the gifts or sacrifice of man to the higher powers, and by this I am being all-inclusive of the intelligences I described earlier, and their gift in return back to mankind. In the Havamal it states that “a gift always demands gain” and that is the nature of the multi-verse as things must remain balanced in order for life to continue. In the past, among our ancestors, the sacrifice given to the gods or to the other holy powers varied and even included animal and human sacrifice – – usually with the two latter being hung on a tree, the symbolism of course being obvious. Today we do not engage in that extreme and I certainly don’t recommend it to anyone for obvious reasons! What sacrifice does mean however is the giving up or the “gifting” of something that is of value to you as a person. The response of the multi-verse and of all of the holy powers is then their gift to you in response to that sacrifice. In other words, when you gifts to the gods or to any of the other holy powers our ancestors, you don’t give something that costs you nothing or that you do not even like! The whole thought behind it is that you are giving something of value of yourself, something that is worthwhile and that means something to you. Giving something that means nothing to you is no sacrifice at all and is an insult to the gods and to all of the holy powers! This can cover a multitude of different possibilities, from (if you are using runes and magical practice) blooding the runes with your own life force, or perhaps swearing an oath to perform a certain act or deed and then following through with it – – it is not what the sacrifice itself is, it is that you are doing something or giving something that is meaningful to you as a person. 


In later episodes, after we have covered all of the Runes themselves individually we will talk about what they call “Bind Runes” and how one whether in the Bind Rune form or in the individual Rune form can carve, stain, call, send, put to sleep these powers – – basically the answers to all of the questions asked at the end of the Runic Quest of Odin recorded in the Havamal. In the meantime, one must learn the Runes themselves both in their individual and collective energy, as well as get a good and firm understanding of the mythologies which are the context in which the Runes can be understood in the personal soul complex. This, combined with dedicated practices such as what is shown to you in the meditational series that we have in our premium broadcasts, will help you a great deal in your connection to the Runic energies as well as your effectiveness and success in working with these energies. We take a “holistic” approach here because the worker of the Runes and their development is just as important as understanding the Runes themselves!


Until next time...

The NRR “Chat By The Fireside” with Bryan Wilton: “A Definite Purpose”

Welcome this week to the NRR "Chat By The Fireside" with Bryan Wilton!  The episode Bryan has for us today is an important one entitled "Definite Purpose"!


Bryan.jpg
In this episode Bryan talks about how we really need to have definite purpose in our lives when it comes to the approach we take too Asatru.  We need to have a desire to move forward and to succeed, building up everything we can not only for ourselves but for others!  Internet Heathenry often brings us to the place where we can get tied up in the endless and foolish arguments about "who is right and who is wrong" rather than trying to build something real.  I like one of the quotes in this broadcast were Bryan says "the intelligence of a man is expressed in his deeds".  This is of course the same for a woman and we use the term man to be an all-encompassing term as the actions of women are just as important!  We want to have something that can be passed down to our children and to our children's children that proves beyond any shadow of doubt the value of what we have chosen to accept as our belief system, not just empty words.  As I've said in many of the broadcasts that we have done on our core episodes, "the Power has the word, the word does not have the power" which means that when we line up our words and actions with what is deep in the it definite purpose of our minds there is little we cannot accomplish!

Feel free to download and share this episode is far and wide as possible and also to subscribe to the RSS feed that we have where you will no longer have to worry about missing an episode.  If you are on our podcast server site to just go to the right-hand column near the top, and you will see a little symbol just to the right of the "share" button.  That will take you to a page when you click on it, that will allow you to either download and install the Podbean APP or if you have an existing podcast aggregator, copy and paste the RSS URL directly into your program and you are subscribed!  You can also search for us on iTunes and subscribe to us that way as well.

The Runic Series: The Rune Kenaz, Cen, or Kaun

This week we're taking a look at the Rune Kenaz, Cen, Kaun, Ka depending on the runic systems that you are using. This is where the runic staves in the 4 systems start to diverge. You'll start to see a more stark contrast as we proceed further along in this series. From left to right we have the Elder version of the stave, next the Anglo-Saxon Futhorc, then the Younger Futhark and Armanen Futhorc version.  Note the the Younger Futhark and the Armanen Futhorc version is the same.

Kenazset.jpg

This Rune and its most mundane definition stands for "torch". A torch is something that lights things so you can see some of the importance that this Rune has right from the get-go, even in its most mundane definition. Whether it be a cave, a mead hall, a dark tunnel or an evening celebration, the torch makes things that would normally be invisible to the naked eye due to the lack of light, visible so that all may enjoy depending on the circumstances of what is going on. If it is an individual they get to see where they're going rather than stumbling around in the dark. It is a prize of Skaldic prose to ensoul multiple meanings into each stanza or line of the poem or tale. This has a profound impact on the meaning of this Rune when it is looked at in combination with all of the Runes that have come before it. As we stated in the last broadcast, each Rune is not to be seen merely as an individual stave but as a part of a whole, even as we express our individuality in the context of the collective consciousness of our people. That which casts light when it is placed after the Rune which represents a journey under control is very profound indeed!

Find out how this stave is the energy of illumination on our journey of expansion both personally as individuals, and collectively as a people! This refers to the power it has which temporal attachments to our perceptions of “R”eality cannot withstand, and at the same time grants protection from those forces (human or otherwise) that would attempt to topple us from the vibrant balance of our soul complex!

150

A sixth I know: when some thane would harm me

in runes on a moist tree's root,

on his head alone shall light the ills of

the curse that he called upon mine.

“Shoemaker’s Hall” from The TAC on the NRR! Video-Cast on “Labels”

Welcome to this special edition of "Shoemaker's Hall" from the TAC, otherwise known as "The Asatru Community".

TAC_Banner.jpeg

"Shoemaker's Hall" is a short video podcast, one of the few in video format that we put out there on our RSS feed, that is a resource of The Asatru Community and although shorter in duration than our regular podcasts in audio format, has a poignant message that is worth listening to.

In this episode which is entitled "Labels", Bret talks about how we can get bogged down with how we label others, and even how we label ourselves in regards to Asatru.  The most important aspect of Asatru is how we live our lives, and how we honor the ancestors, gods, and wights – not how we label ourselves in the process.  What kind of impact does this way of life have on you personally?  What does this do for you?

Brett also makes an important point that we do not need to always agree on everything!  What a boring world it would be if we were all the same, and if we were all in agreement with one another on every single point.  What would there be to learn?  It's time for us to stop infighting about things that really have little relevance to how this impacts the things in our lives that are really important and the things that we can do and be that influence our communities.

It is our hope that you will enjoy this short video podcast, and share it is far and wide as you can.  We appreciate all of our network partners including the TAC.  Take a look at their website for further resources and information as to what's going on with them as they are doing things actively in many places in the world not just the United States.  You can check out their Main website here: http://www.theasatrucommunity.org/ or you can go to our network partner page (the link on the top of the page you're looking at if you happen to be on our server site) and click the text below their logo and that will also take you to their Main website.

In this episode Bryan talks about how it is so important for us to grow up as people as we begin to embrace the higher aspects of what Asatru really means.  Brian also talks about some of the stresses that he has experienced with the loss of his father, the deployment of one of his children in the military, and having to start a new job all within three weeks of one another!  The importance of being an example of what it is that we hold dear to us in our hearts, yes – even a reflection of those principles that make Asatru so unique and powerful are part of this growing process that he talks about in this episode.

*Please note there is a mild language warning in this episode, listener discretion is advised*

Let's hear what Bryan has to say

Interview with DR. William Short of Hurstwic!

Welcome one and all to our feature interview with Dr. William Short from an organization called Hurstwic!  This interview was a lot of fun to do and has a lot of information packed into it, and I am sure that you will find it just as much fun to listen to as we had in recording it!

Hurstwig2.jpg
We have links posted across our social media networks pointed toward some of the things that Hurstwic are doing some of which will be placed in this post as well. It is our hope that you will check these links out and find out what Hurstwic is doing and if you could become part of it in any way should you have the interest!
Dr. Short is a very down to earth man and a great person to talk to!  These folks deal with everything from the old-style weapons of our ancestors and their use, to looking at the stories in the lore – – in Dr. Shortt's own words "we are interested in everything to do with the Vikings". They even have amidst all of the lectures and courses that they hold for people, something that particularly piques my interest as something that would be of great interest to all of you, and that was a course in old Norse which was not a long drawn out academic course but one that was functional allowing people to be able to pick up the sagas of our ancestors and read them in the original old Icelandic. As you know on the NRR we have always desired to see people inspired to read the stories of our ancestors, and to be able to do that in the original languages where this cultic poetry is preserved in its entirety is something that is truly exciting and is an opportunity provided by Hurstwic!
You may have noticed that we did not have the intro music on this particular episode. The reason for that is due to the introduction to the NRR being revamped to reflect some of the changes that have been going on with the NRR both as a network and as our emphasis between the network partners and our core broadcasts.  There are many exciting things afoot! 
Here are some of the links to Hurstwig we were referring to:

The NRR “Chat By The Fireside” with Bryan Wilton: “Revealing The Man”

Welcome to our listeners to this week's edition of the "NRR Chat By The Fireside" with Bryan Wilton!  The episode of the Bryan has for us today is entitled "Revealing the Man".


Bryan.jpg

This is an important episode that goes into some detail as to what underlies the concept so often talked about in Heathenry: "we are our deeds".  This looks like a simple statement if just spoken casually, but there is so much more to it.  There are the circumstances that we each face in life and our response to those circumstances.  There are also the thought processes that we have which give rise to our deeds.  One of the questions Bryan asks is "what kind of soil do we cultivate in our minds?".  The message Bryan gives here is one that really bears taking note of, because there is a saying in relationship to deeds and thoughts that most people know: "as a man think it, so is he".  There is another common quote out there as well "our focus determines our reality".  Why?  What we focus on and what we nourish within ourselves is what eventually comes out in our actions and words.  Success is not always about money and possessions, those are nice and there is nothing wrong with such, but the quality of who a person is shines forth as the greatest success of all.

Let's hear what Bryan has to say…

The Rune Raidho, Reidh, Rad or Rit

Hail to all of our listeners! Our continuation in "The Runic Series"!

The 5th Rune in all the 4 systems is known as a Raidho, Rad, Reidh. or Rit depending on the system you are using. 

Raidho.jpg

This Rune is another one of those runes that is passed over in the systems as somehow not being as significant as the rest yet nothing could be further from the truth. This Rune is the Rune of “the journey”. Yes, that can mean something as simple as a trip from one Township to another but it is more accurately describing “the journey” of life itself between birth and death. We can line up with the with universal law and have a journey of expansion and evolution, or use one fight against ourselves and really go nowhere. The choice is ours. You can see how as we have gone through the different runes up to this point in the series that each one builds upon the one before it and is connected! This is an important point to understand when dealing with the runes, that even though there are individuals staves that have purposes of their own, each one is connected to all the other runes as well in a collective power. The context of the individual stave is the entire Rune row in the same way that our individual expression of life has its context in the folk soul of our people!

Havamal Stanza 149--the spell song associated with Raidho (or Rit) is:

149.
A fifth I know: when I see, by foes shot,
speeding a shaft through the host,
flies it never so strongly I still can stay it,
if I get but a glimpse of its flight.

A Flashback to One of Our Newest Network Partners: Nordic Circle Kindred

A hearty hail to one and all!  Welcome to this week's broadcast from the NRR – Northern Runes Radio where this week we talk with very special guests: Joshua, and Corey, of the Nordic Circle Kindred!

Nodic_Circle_Logo_2.jpg
In this episode we get the hear Joshua and Corey speak from their hearts and describe the tremendous work that they are doing within their sphere of influence.  We also hear of the plight of so many veterans in the United States alone who after serving their country, find themselves homeless and unemployable in so many instances.  The statistic quoted to me was that in the U.S. 22 veterans per day commit SUICIDE! Something needs to be done! Nordic Circle Kindred do their best to try and help these veterans in their time of need.  I know when I was talking to these two gentlemen I felt what they were doing was truly inspirational and something that puts feet on the beliefs we say that we hold dear.  I believe that you will feel the same way as you listen to this broadcast.  It is people like these folk that are showing and lighting the way for the rest of us in so many ways regarding the living out of our truths in the world.

Without any further ado, let's get to that show!  Please feel free to share and download this is far as wide as possible!

The NRR “Chat By The Fireside” with Bryan Wilton: “An Excerpt From An Asatru Life”

Welcome this week to our NRR "Chat By The Fireside" with Bryan Wilton!  The episode Bryan has for us this week is entitled "An Excerpt From An Asatru Life".


Bryan.jpg

In this episode Bryan talks about how important it is to focus our intent on what we really want to see manifesting in our lives.  This is especially true when it comes to the matter of spiritual growth, and is attested to not only in our ways, but in many spiritual paths both present and in history!  The ways of our ancestors resonate with us the most closely, and these concepts are there as well with just as much flourish and glory.  Often we overlook these things in the day to day grind of our modern lives.  What joy we can find if we can step back for a moment and look at the bigger picture of what we could become!

Please feel free to download and share this episode and also subscribe to our RSS feed either through copying the RSS URL or downloading the Podbean APP.  This is prominently linked on our server site page here and both the download of the Podbean APP and the RSS URL are shown on the page that opens up when you click on that link.  Hail to each and every one of you!

The Rune Known as “Ansuz, Os, As”

The fourth Rune in all systems.  There are variant forms in each system that will be shown.

Ansuz_Os_Ase.jpg
The meaning of this rune is simillar in all the systems, and in the Armanen is ascribed to the spell song from the Havamal:

" A fourth I know: if men make fast 
in chains the joints of my limbs, 
when I sing that song which shall set me free,
spring the fetters from hands and feet."

The Rune Ansuz is a window to the creative power of freedom! It shows how when the ecstatic inspiration that comes from the energies of the multi-verse itself flows through an individual and their soul complex, that the fetters they have imprisoned themselves with can be cast off. This is the Rune of true awakening and freedom of the human spirit no matter what circumstance one may find themselves in outwardly. Wealth, success, popularity, fame, are all fine and good and if you can acquire them with what gifts are given you in this life than there is certainly no issue with pursuing these things. Realize however that this does not make you any more free than someone who lives under a bridge because the strongest prison is the one you built for yourself and is not made with hands! Freedom comes from within. Without that freedom one is either a slave in rags or a slave wearing a suit. This Rune teaches you how to be free through that connection to the higher genius known in the soul complex as the fetch -- -- there is another Rune that we will discuss later on that has more direct connections to the fetch, but it is of no value to you if you have not 1st liberated yourself from the prison of the mind that each of us has formed without hands.

Until next time...
