Fear of Friday the 13th is known as triskaidekaphobes.
When fear of the day started is up for debate. Some suggest little can be found about the day being negative or filled with bad luck prior to the late 1800s. But others link the phobia to older historical events and occurrences which symbolize the link between the number thirteen and Friday to disastrous events.
One thing many seem to agree to is that both the number thirteen and the sixth day of the week (Friday) have been associated with negative connotations from patriarchal societies and most definitely western cultures. Where as matriarchal societies associate both these objects with positive aspects and connotations.
Pagans Honor The 13th
We should begin with a short explanation for the layman about who and what are Pagans.
By academic definition, Pagans are any religion or spiritual path that does…

Written by a friend of mine – superb information!
Egg cleansing is an ancient practice, utilized in Mesoamerica, Europe and Africa, among other places. The symbol of the egg is a universal symbol of Life. The yolk inside cozy and protected by a seemingly fragile shell. The ancients found this symbolism and began using it as a tool for the spiritual practices.
The thought behind egg cleansing is that it acts like a spong, absorbing and neutralizing negative energy, diseases and the evil eye. Many today do not have the information readily available to instruct them on how the cleansing is done and the egg read effectively. Which is the reason behind this article.
For an Appalachian egg cleansing, you will need some form of “holy water”, either from a church, river water or stump water. You will also need a clear glass, a candle for the spirits, and a religious symbol (cross, rosary, etc.)
Wash the egg in…

Source: The Single Most Important Viking Trait
My new novel Jomsviking is now being published here in Norway, and many of you have asked when it will be available in English and other languages. It’s my 17th book and finally, 21 years after the publication of my very first novel, it looks like the sales are taking off. The pre-sale is at almost 3.000 copies as I’m writing this on the 7th April 2017, which is very, very good by Norwegian standards — the publishing company actually placed an order for the second print yesterday.
But the book is still only available in Norwegian. I get asked a lot when my books will be available in English, and it actually hurts a bit every time I get that question. But that is only because I feel I should be able to say yes! It hurts because I really, really want you to get to know the characters…

Norwegians are usually peaceful creatures. Much too peaceful, I would say, and way too patient. We rarely raise our voice while sober and most of us believe showing negative emotions are immature and childish.
But when it comes to wolves, everything changes. If you want to start a physical fight in Norway, you only need to bring up the subject of wolves, or more precisely, you need to say out loud that you want lots of wolves out in the Norwegian woods. If you do that, someone will probably stand up and call you names, while clenching his fists. Or, if it’s a woman, she will ask you if you want children to be killed by a pack of wolves.
Try bringing up the subject of wolves in a Norwegian dinner party. There is bound to be some idiot — I mean person — who will raise their voice and…

Love Bjorn’s blogs – always mindful, spot on and real. Truth!
Did you know that Odin’s two ravens Hugin and Munin are symbols meant to explain the duality of your mind? I have always been fascinated by this concept. As it often is with Norse mythology, the more you look into it, the more you learn about yourself and the world around you.
I’ve written about Hugin and Munin in my latest blogpost for Grimfrost. You’ll find it HERE.
