The Use of Music in Rituals-Donner Swings His Hammer



For a while now I have considered introducing music into my Wodenist rites. Some Wodenists/Wotanists/Odinists already do this and  if the music is chosen carefully it can add to the feelings of awe and reverence as we enter into the presence of the Gods.

Suitable music would include extracts from Wagner`s Der Ring des Nibelungen. One of the highlights of Das Rheingold and Der Ring generally is the latter part of Scene 4. The section of music in particular that I have in mind is Schwueles Geduenst:

"Schueles Geduenst
          schwebt in der Luft;
          laestig ist mir
         der truebe Druck:
         das bleiche Gewoelk
         samml` ich zu blitzendem Wetter;
         des fegt den Himmel mir hell.

         


          "A sultry haze
           soars in the air;
           burdened I am
           by its cloudy weight

           the leaden clouds
           I`ll collect into a raging storm;
           which will sweep the heavens clear.
           [Wotan`s Krieger`s translation]

Donner[Thunor/Thor/Donar] then climbs a rock promontory overlooking the valley and then He swings His hammer, gathering the mists to him.


"He da! He da! Hedo!
           Zu mir, du Gedueft!
           ihr Duenste, zu mir!
           Donner, der Herr,
           ruft euch zu Heer.


"He da! He da! Hedo!
           To me, you haze!
           you mists, to me!
           Donner, the Lord,
           calls you to be his army.
           [Wotans Krieger`s translation]

Donner then swings His hammer.

"Auf des Hammers Schwung
           schwebet herbei:
           dunstig Gedaempf!
           Schwebend Gedueft!
           Donner, der Herr,
           ruft euch zu Heer!
           He da! He da! Hedo!

"On the swing of the hammer
           soar here:
           misty vapour clouds!
           Soaring haze!
           Donner, the Lord,
           calls you to be his army!
           He da! He da! Hedo!"
           [Wotans Krieger`s translation]

Following this Donner disappears, completely enveloped in the thundercloud. His hammer then strikes the rock. Flashes of lightning appear, followed by the crashing sound of thunder.

The astute reader will observe Wagner`s nice play on words, rhyming [Donner der] Herr[lord] with Heer[army]. This is a common feature in Wagner`s work.

The most appropriate stage to introduce this music would be before the commencement of the Hammer Rite. In effect what we would then be doing is performing a rite already accomplished in the heavens by Thunor: "as above, so below." This should then set the right spiritual atmosphere for what will follow. 

The best version of this highlight-with words is probably that of Bernard Haitink and the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, featuring Andreas Schmidt as Donner. His vocals are some of the deepest I have heard for this role and the orchestral effects are nicely bombastic which is how this piece should be done!

Hypnotism, a Recovered Lost Aryan Mantic Art


As I have mentioned before on this blog and on my Die Armanenschaft der Ario-Germanen blog our task after awakening is to become masters of our Self. Our purpose in becoming masters of our Self is to equip us with the right state of awareness and knowledge in order that we can then become masters of others. This is what is meant by the term Herrenvolk. Not all who share our genetics are equipped to master others or even themselves. The vast majority of people, including those of our own biological race are sheep that require a shepherd, someone who has the capacity to tell them what to do and what to think. Before some of you raise an eyebrow at this statement give some thought as to the current situation in the world! In this age of mass media and mass surveillance by government agencies and corporations the individual is made to believe that he has the capacity to think freely but this is the last thing that is allowed to him by the chosen. Only the illusion of freewill is granted by Klingsor. The governing elite, the chosen, use the media and the idiotbox called television to influence the masses and they use governments who are financially manipulated by the chosen to enforce their will through laws.

What I am suggesting is that we use the same strategy. The masses are and always have been the cannon fodder of the powerful and we have to recognise that nothing will change this-and neither should it. Real power is exercised unseen and in secret.

One tool that can be used as a means of Self-empowerment and as a means of influence over others is hypnotism. This is something I studied a few years ago and one of the messages that was repeated throughout the course is that we cannot hypnotise others against their will. This is false. Now much of the training regarding hypnotism is part of training given in hypnotherapy but the skills that are taught are valid for all types of hypnotic work.

Hypnotic inductions are carried out usually by inducing a state of relaxation and the use of imagery, creating a state of mind where the inductee is open to the planting of a suggestion in their unconscious mind. Most trainers will tell you that the conscious mind acts as the gatekeeper to the unconscious and thus the gatekeeper has to be bypassed by being put to sleep. In the relaxed state the inductee is less aware of his environment and the only external stimuli comes from the hypnotist and thus they are more prone to suggestion. To a large extent this is true but people can enter a light trance like state without the intervention of a hypnotist. Examples include falling asleep on the bus, falling asleep driving or during a boring lesson or meeting. A state of relaxation can be induced without the intervention of a hypnotist or without the hypnotist formerly inducing a trance like state. To a great extent this is dependent upon  the susceptibility of the inductee. Some people cannot be hypnotised against their will, that is true but many can. It happens in all sorts of ways but these days in the age of mass communication with television and the internet it is much easier.

If anyone follows the workings of stage and television hypnotists you will observe that they are highly selective in terms of who they choose to hypnotise because they realise that some have a weaker will than others and can be more easily dominated. This is why they carry out suggestibility exercises first upon their audience, hence achieving seemingly remarkable results! 

In future articles I intend to explore the methods and tools that my readers can use to achieve their purpose. Please remember that hypnotism is an ancient Aryan Thulean mantic art and like all of our recovered knowledge should be used. Let us reclaim these tools to achieve the Aryan Imperium that we desire!

 Hypnotism can be used for both positive and negative purposes but it is effective. To understand how we can use these skills one only has to watch Leni Riefenstahl`s Triumph des Willens. Adolf Hitler demonstrated Himself to be a master of this mantic art-right up to the very end.
