Days of the Week & Norse Gods BY: ThrivingViking

Hey everyone. Thriving Viking here! Welcome to my first post! (Yay!!!) Today I’m going to talk about some viking stuff. Little bits and pieces that you may not know about your modern world. The vikings had such an influence on our modern world and a lot of people don’t even realize it.

Days of the Week

Surprised? Don’t be. The gods of the vikings were able to survive Christianity in their smaller communities and enclaves and even within the borders of the Holy Church. They are the roots of most of the days of the week! So lets start with two of the more well known gods; Odin and Thor. “But there’s no days with their names in them!” You’re protesting. Don’t be so sure. Lets start with Odin…
Odin, the chief god of Asgard has many names. Like literally hundreds! The lore on him is extensive and changes with each dialect of European language. His day of the week is Wednesday. How do you get that from Odin…? Like this: Among the differing names, based on language, one of his names is Wotan or Woden. Does that look a bit closer?
Now we look at Thor. He’s a bit of a hothead and he got stuck with Thursday. Yep, that day when we’re all done with this week and just want Friday to fly by. Thor and Thursday already look pretty close. Now I’m going to bring the runes into it, those 24 angular characters that adorn all manner of viking and pagan art. The rune associated with Thor is Thurs. How about that! Damn near identical, eh?
Right now, you’re asking how these got by the church. Especially when they set up the calendar! Well, imagine you’re trying to integrate an entire culture into your civilization and the direct means are a bit…bloody? So instead you artfully integrate pieces of their culture into yours. Over the years they come around and join you, no war, no blood.
So, where were we… Friday! Surprise, this one’s viking too but, there is some question as to which goddess its attributed to. Frigga or Freya… I’m of the opinion (yours may differ) that its Freya as she is the goddess of magic, sex and

8 Facts To Know About Lughnasadh, Pagan Harvest Festival, By Antonia Blumberg

The holiday honors Lugh, the Celtic god of light

1. Lughnasadh, also called Lammas, falls on August 1, roughly halfway between the summer solstice and autumn equinox.

2. The name of the holiday derives from Old Gaelic and is a combination of Lugh, a Celtic god, and násad, or assembly.

3. The holiday honors Lugh, the Celtic god of light, but it also celebrates his mythical foster mother Tailtiu, who is said to have cleared the lands of Ireland to make way for the planting of crops.

4. Modern pagans celebrate Lughnasadh as a harvest festival, when the first crops of the year would traditionally have been reaped.

10 of the Incredible Benefits of Palo Santo

10 of the Incredible Benefits of Palo Santo

Cleanse Your Energy, Find Calm, Deepen Your Connection to the Earth with Palo Santo Wood

Palo santo is one of the most fragrant woods in the world. Its sweet scent of pine, mint, and lemon has, for centuries, been a harbinger of healing and good fortune. Shamans, saints, and those seeking a stronger spiritual connection with the world use palo santo to protect, experience, and heal. Here are ten of the incredible benefits palo santo offers:

 

1. Spiritual purifying and energy cleansing.

For centuries the indigenous people of the Andes have been using palo santo for spiritual purification and energy cleansing. When the wood is burned it’s believed to clear negative energy and restore tranquility and calm.

Form: wood burning

2. Inspiring creativity and bringing love and good fortune.

Burn palo santo sticks or use the charcoal for ritual smudging that will welcome creativity, love, and good fortune into your space. The wood can help brighten energy and promote feelings of positivity and joy. The scent is also shown to reduce stress and anxiety, and enhance clarity and concentration.

Form: wood burning or smudging

3. Bringing a deeper connection to the divine source.

If meditation is the yin, palo santo is the yang. The uplifting scent is the perfect partner for your meditation practice. Raise your vibration, and discover peace and groundedness as you sink into a deeper connection to the Earth and your inner consciousness.

Form: wood burning or smudging

4. Physical healing.

Palo santo is used to treat a wide variety of physical ailments including colds, flus, anxiety, depression, asthma, bronchitis, headaches, and emotional trauma. Use the oil to provide pain relief for arthritis and joint pain with its anti-inflammatory properties.

Palo santo tea (made by simmering the wood in hot water) acts as a natural digestive aid. The oil can be added to soaps, scrubs, and lotions to cleanse and moisturize the skin. The wood also contains high concentrations of a compound called d-limonene, which is thought to aid in the prevention of a variety of cancers.

Form: simmer the wood to make tea or apply oil as a topical tincture

5. Energetic protection and the removal of negativity.

When used for smudging or burning, palo santo can eliminate negative energy, creating a calmer, more tranquil space. Set an intention about what you want to clear out of your space, then move from corner to corner, removing any bad energy, uplifting your spirit, and filling your home with good fortune.

Form: wood burning or smudging

 

6.  The enticing and clarifying palo santo scent.

Can we wax on a bit here about the remarkable, lasting scent of a palo santo smudge? For our kitchens and bedrooms, vehicles and workspaces, the brightness of citrus, marked with the ancient notes of its natural heritage, bring a uniquely clarifying scent to every space. The benefit of burning palo santo wood in a smudging practice is its lingering scent.

Form: wood burning or smudging 


7. Mobility of use while in travel modes.

Unlike a sage bundle, palo santo wood is graciously proportioned for spiritual seekers who spend ample time away from home. Palo santo sticks are well-paired with car rides, hikes and other travel experiences. People are known to cleanse their hotel rooms before sleep for a more peaceful, deepened rest.

Form: wood burning or smudging

8. Vibrational cleansing and renewal for crystals.

Crystals do much of the heavy lifting in the work
