An Eddic Library

So, in my search of lore material revovling around the Northern Tradition, I often like to check and see what is available online. Today I found this

Which has a good accompilation of the Edda’s online, labeled by name.

Thank you whoever created it.

June 29, 2010 – Dagaz

Standard

Dagaz

Dagaz is the letter D

Anglo-Saxon Rune Poem (from ragweedforge.com)

Day, the glorious light of the Creator, is sent by the Lord;
it is beloved of men, a source of hope and happiness to rich and poor,and of service to all.

You might have noticed that I have not been posting comments with some of my rune of the day posts. I felt that I should keep some of my contemplations and musings to myself regarding what was going, as the messages coming through seemed intensely personal and private. I did post the runes themselves, as a means to share, and also allow my readers (all 11 of you, yay!) to have their own contemplations. Today still has a personal feeling to it, but I can share some of the thoughts with you all. Part of my understanding of Dagaz is that it is the rune that symbols change and transformation, or rather transmutation. While it is the day, it also encompasses the idea of Dawn and Sunrise, when the world quickens and changes, embracing new things, or for some being rudely awakened to things that one would rather ignore or just not deal with. Each day brings change, and change is what allows things to transform, transmute, and alter. It is, in a sense, a very alchemical rune, in the sense that by bringing in changes, the work progresses, and transformation of the base substance is continued until it becomes the lapis occultus, or Philsophers’ Stone.
Sometimes, the smallest and simplest of actions, can yield the most profund of transformations.

Good-ness Gracious!

Recently I have been feeling the desire to create some magical/condition products (oils, powders, incense etc…). Part of my training is in African American Folk Magic (via Lucky Mojo) and that is the system I prefer to use when I create such products. What has been calling me recently is the desire to create some products for general benevolence, and also attracting benevolent spirits. To that end I created two items, that currently only exist in an oil form.

The first one I call “All Good Things.” It is a very sweet scented oil that attracts benevolent affection, good spirits, and uplifted mental state. When I first created it the scent was nice, but after sitting for a few hours (and a good healthy empowerment blessing) the scent transformed into this wonderful odor. I have only used it once, but my experience after wearing it showed a general increase of helpful and benevolent experiences for the remainder of the day.

The second oil I named “Good Spirits.” Good Spirits name indicates what it is meant to attract. The attention and aid of good spirits, benevolent unseen helpers, spirit guides, helpful ancestral spirits, spiritual guardians and pretty much any kind of incorporeal intelligence that is beneficial, benevolent and well, good. I recently used it on a candy for a spiritual ally of mine, and I found our connection clear, strong and empowered. I think it also helped to strengthen the spiritual ally as well, and so it might figure as a way to anoint offerings and gifts to benevolent spirits that you may wish to call, or are already apart of your spiritual practice.
