Ein absolute Musikempfehlung: Heilung! Eine dänische Band, die fließendes Wasser, menschliche Knochen, Schwerter, Schilde, alten Rahmentrommeln und Bronzeringe als Instrumente nutzt und deren Texte alten Runeninschriften auf Steinen und Speerschäften, von Amuletten und anderen Artefakten entstammen. Beeindruckende Soundwelten entstehen mit der tiefen Stimme von Kai-Uwe Faust und dem hellen Gegenpart durch die wunderschöne Stimme von Maria Franz. Aktuell gibt es das Studio-Album „Ofnir“ und das Live-Album „Lifa“. Bei mir war es Liebe auf das 2. oder 3. Hören, dann allerdings umso intensiver und dauerhafter. Laut Aussage der Band, soll die Musik den Hörer nach einer manchmal turbulenten musikalischen Reise geheilt und entspannt zurücklassen. Unbedingt reinhören!
An absolute music recommendation: Heilung! A Danish band that running water, human bones, reconstructed swords and shields up to ancient frame drums and bronze rings as instruments and whose lyrics derive from ancient runic inscriptions on stones and spear shafts, amulets and other artifacts. Impressive sound worlds arise with the deep voice of Kai-Uwe Faust and the bright counterpart through the beautiful voice of Maria Franz. Currently there are the studio album "Ofnir" and the live album "Lifa" available. For me it was love at 2nd or 3rd hearing, but then the more intense and lasting. According to the band, the music should leave the listener eased and relaxed after a sometimes turbulent musical journey. Be sure to listen!

#Repost ・・・ In the modern Western world, we think of the self as having two or three components: a body, a mind, and perhaps a “soul” that may or may not be identical with the mind. These few parts form a tightly coherent single whole that can be clearly and cleanly separated from its “environment.” The line that separates self and other is absolute and unalterable. In the worldview of the pre-Christian Norse and other Germanic peoples, however, the self is a much more complex entity. It’s comprised of numerous different parts that are all semi-autonomous and can detach themselves from one another at will, and the border between the self and its “environment” is highly porous and ambiguous. Precisely what constitutes the self at any given moment is a matter that’s constantly being negotiated and re-negotiated between various factions. The pre-Christian Germanic worldview has never placed much value on a uniform set of official doctrines, and, accordingly, it contains no comprehensive, systematic account of the parts that comprise the human self, to say nothing of other species. This present article makes no attempt to do such a thing either, and instead presents descriptions of six of the most important and commonly mentioned parts of the self in Old Norse literature: the líkamr(“vital processes”), the hamr(“shape/form/appearance”), the hugr(“thought”), munr (“desire”), the fylgja (“follower”), and the hamingja(“luck”). #nor#norse#theself. #norsemythology #norse #norseman#norseculture#vikings#vikingsoul#vikingstyle#vikingspirit#vikingsocial#vikingculture#history#cosmology
Meet Bodilla, which is Norse for ‘fighting woman,’ a named suggested by one of our Facebook fans, Marianne. This Persian kitty is certainly a fighter; she has a new lease on life after being found in a terrible state in a Target parking lot. After getting fixed up by our veterinary team, she’s enjoying the comforts of a foster home before she goes up for adoption. In case you missed the original story, scroll back a few pics to see her original condition. #norse#fightingwoman#persiancat#survivor#lifesavers#foster#secondchances

Om man finner en 1-2 meter lang stein reist på høykant, er tilfeldig? Snarere tvert i mot. Ifølge Snorre Sturlason (1178-1241) var skikken i tidlig middelalder å «brenne alle døde og reise bautasteiner etter dem». 1176 slike steiner er registrert i Norge, og har sitt opphav fra 400-1050. Etter denne perioden, måtte de norrøne, hedenske tradisjonene vike for kirkens jerngrep.
