I have written about this ritual in the past, but wanted to re - post on this subject because I have tripled the amount of visitors that I have on my site these days, and wanted to share it with the newcomers. I also was literally horrified by the recent murder of a woman out in Montana ! This woman, her name was, no I am sorry, her name IS Sherry Arnold was out jogging when two men, ( both with prior criminal records), pulled up to her in a car, forced her so violently into the car that she lost a sneaker, and then the one man choked her to death. Then they took her body and buried it on some obscure farm in the middle of nowhere, without any rite of passage into the next world. These animals, ( sorry, I cannot call them human beings), showed no respect for the sacredness of life, the fact that she could not defend herself, or whether she had a husband, or children who loved her and needed her. These career criminals cared about nothing other than their bloodlust, and the " thrill " of what they were doing. Luckily they were caught. Unfortunately it was too late for Sherry Arnold.
I don't know why these crimes affect me so, but they do ! It saddens me to think of the husband's of these victims left behind, or the children who will grow up without a mother. I cannot imagine my life without my mother ! Or in the case of violence against a child, the grief that the parents will have to endure for a lifetime. I also wonder to myself: " Would that child have found the cure for cancer ? Maybe that child would have been the one who discovered how to harness nuclear fusion, or maybe become the first female president of the United States". Unfortunately we will never know because they were taken too early, and without cause.
I will not tell you how I perform the ritual because in additiion to honoring the innocent victims, I curse the souls of those criminals who commit such unspeakable crimes against their victims and the Gods. There is no place in my heart to forgive those who pick out the weakest in our society, and prey upon them. I know that Freyja and Frigga are greatly dishonored by such acts, ( actually horrified is my perception of their reaction ), and will take vengeance on their souls. I keep coming back to a saying the Gods and Goddesses gave to me years ago, " There is no honor in dishonoring others." These subhumans have no honor ! Frigga I know will take the little children into Fensalir and care for them, and I hope that Freyja will do the same for the women, though I have no perception of this. What the Gods from other religions do is not in the realm of my knowledge, but I am sure they will pay for their crimes in the afterlife.
For 2012, I am adding an end of the year ritual in which I will honor the victims one last time, and place their names on a " roll of honor ". I am sure that I miss quite a few victims, not all make it into the national news, but I try to search the web and find as many to honor as is possible. For the families, friends, and loved ones of the victims I have the deepest sympathy for your pain and your loss. May the God (s ) and Goddesses watch over those who are no longer with you for eternity ! I long for the day when women and children will be treated with the same respect that all human beings deserve as the children of the Gods ! On that day I will perform a happier ritual on the first of each month !
Go with Odin's wisdom, Freyja's love, and Thor's protection !
