“The Maid of Orléans”

I don’t tend to use this page for political purposes,
But seeing how fearless woman was shot standing up to a tyrannical government on the 6th I feel it is appropriate to mention how the 6th is also Saint Jeanne d’Arc “The Maid of Orléans” (French: La Pucelle d’Orléans).

Jeanne was a French farmer girl who lived during the 100 years war between Britain and France. During this period of turmoil she would go to her father’s garden. She would pray and said she had received images and messages from the St. Michael (Arche Angel Michael) as well as other saints and even God himself.

She was thought to be so in-tuned with God and these spirits that she had cried at the loss of their presence after their departure from speaking with her.

France at the time was losing the war and the people were fearing for the worse. After a few ordeals she joined the war effort as she said she was told to by God.

She inspired as a figured head and personally led victorious battles for her people. She was considered by many to be a savior figure, and a hero. Some think she embodied the spirit of the Holy mother.

That was until post war when they decided that her “usefulness” was up and her ability to talk directly to God and Angels was “witch craft”.

She was burnt at the stake.

Did she speak to Angels and saints?
Did she hear the voice of the Sky father (God, Deus, Gaut) ?

I like to think she was spiritually in-tune and may have heard voices of God and spirits, maybe the Earth Mother herself which she interpreted in the context of the local religion.

However the true question is ; was she a hero?
Absolutely.

It doesn’t matter that she was French and you are English, or German or any flavor of Indo-European or other It doesn’t matter that she was Catholic, and you are Protestant or Pagan. Her ability to stand up for what she felt was right, speak with the divine on her own, and fight against what she felt was tyranny and oppression.

For that she is a Saint, a Martyr, and a Heroine.

New Year 2021

Happy New Years to everyone!
I am working on a few more book projects and well as posts regarding Odinic and Vedic wisdom (and all other Indo-European or ancient traditions).
2020 was a doozy, but there are good things that came from it. I released my first book, and met many great people online whom I have learned a lot from. Hopefully more freedom will emerge from 2021. As always embrace the divine and self improvement in all things.
Let this year be the time to embark on your own spiritual journey, defend your culture, make connections with tribe and family, and self growth.
Wish you all the best.
Hammer and Vajra!

Indo-European Political Self-improvement

On Universalism versus Tribalism

The only universalism is the worship of the sun. All Indo-European religions are connected, but honoring your individual cultural interpretation is what is important for the tribe / folk / people. Connection is amazing and collaboration is wonderful. As is friendship and alliances. However, oneness and forced conformity is against true diversity. Sure, there is strength in numbers. However, when those amongst the numbers have lost their roots and their identity being told they are all the same, instead of true noble strength and individual strife for enlightenment, you have a slave mindset and a rat race not unlike those in the NHIM experiment. Society boils down to degeneration and ignoble strides for daily comfort and selfishness. When your people are the world it is too much of a burden to be empathetic. Instead self-centered hedonism takes place. When your people are the community around you or those who are of your culture it is much more conducive to having empathy and care for the improvement of others. That is not to say there isn’t a place for self-focused endeavors. The self should be focused on improving.

Much like the concept of self-sacrifice such as Odin’s sacrifices for wisdom, or Heracles’ 12 feats or the Buddha’s actions towards enlightenment. When you improve yourself, you will become more of a shining beacon and example for others in your community to look to in order to improve themselves. Then your enlightenment and actions will improve your tribe and community directly. This is one of the primary understandings and lens of which tribe and folk should be viewed. This is why the Hammer and Vajra’s goal is to create an awareness of the joint ideals and common origins of Indo Europeans paganism for enlightenment and awareness, but not as a universal religion. All cultures have their own community faiths and folk and a responsibility to them. Globalism that pushes individualism actually hurts the individual. And when the individual is weakened so is the community.

Praise the sun!
Hail the Gods!
Nourish the Divine within.
Study, Pray, Meditate, Lift, and Fight!
Guide your children and people to greatness.
Hammer and Vajra!

Post Post script because I have to. The swastika in the picture has nothing to do with Nazi Germany and everything to do with the Sun and Enlightenment.

Indo-European Language tree and multiculturalism

Recently installed a runic key board. Learning the Indo European languages that our cultures and faiths stem from is important to true understanding of the mindset of our ancestors whose blood flows through our veins. Be it Runic (Old English, Germanic), Old Latin, Greek, Sanskrit, Old Iranian, Balto-Slavic, ect. Find the language of your peoples back as far as you can go. Learn as much as you can about Indo-European and Proto Indo-European languages. It will help strengthen your ties to your peoples. It will open your mind to the expansive connection of Indo-European faiths. People who want to push multiculturalism should realize that before you can accept and understand others you should first accept and understand yourself. Including where you and yours come from. Pride does not have to mean hatred. But a man who loathes himself isn’t in the position to love others.
