Friggablót - 20th May


At the 20th of May, there is a celebration held by the Norse pagan folk and those who follow that path, called Friggablót. As the name suggests, this is a celebration in honor to the goddess Frigga and to better understand this celebration, we must frist be familiarised with this goddess and in what kind of ways she works.

Who is the Goddess Frigga?

Frigga or Frigg, is the wife of the god Odin, and queen of Asgard, also the mother of the god Badlr. She is also a goddess of fertility, but her powers go beyond that, she is the goddess of motherhood and protection, of love and of home, domestic affairs and ease of transition ( dying ) and the goddess of the family. It is said taht she can predict the future and from where she stands, she knows all about everything that goes on in the universe, she is often called the Silent Goddess for she does not speak of what she knows.

Frigga uses her spinning wheel to weave the clouds, and this shows her works in terms of weather, and the coming of seasons, the constant changes on earth and in nature, in order to have balance and prosperity.

In what ways does this goddess works?

At this blót, this goddess is honored in order to receive her protective powers at our homes, because each home is the defencive castle of each family, is the place where we can find peace and joy with our families, our folk, our ancestors. She is the protecter of our children, and nowadays we are all in need of this goddess, because the society and the political order are doing the best to destroy our homes and families and the goods energies taht we all should feel at home. Its like the neverending fight against the forces of chaos with the forces of balance and
harmony.

If there isn't balance at home, we shall never find peace in it, and if we don't, there is no other place to search for peace if first we dont find peace in our ourselves, and the family helps with that, the good cosy places of harmony indoors, going outside, with so much stress, and
turmoil, the constant pollution and the awful sounds of the city life, the only place where you are eager to go and get some rest, is at home, your hideout, your confort place, to run away from the conflicts outside.

Beautiful post. I wish there were more Heathens in my area to celebrate with. However, I am solitary yet still very content. :)

Sometimes it's hard to find peace at home with the constant noise...tv, or radio etc and I like to find peace in nature. When I lived in New Mexico it was at the Rio Grande river and here it is in the woods or at the beach. I wish I could find that same peace at home.

In understand Breda, its very hard nowadays to find people of the same religions that are not based in abrahamic believes, there are lots of wiccans though, but we cant consider those to be Heathens nor Nordic paganism followers. So it becomes really hard to find people iqual in believes in this matter, but we must stick together :)

Celticspirit, yes i understand you, when i was writting this post, i thought in the same thing as you. I have a great time at home and great people to give me joy and peace, but i know many people that cant find peace in their homes, but may one day, they make their own homes, their own families, and bring this family spirit into that place, and make it a shelter for generations to come.

Ontem tinha um comentário grande para enviar mas a app do iphone ainda está uma cácá e ao fazer login apagou me a mensagem :c

Bom tentanto recuperar o que escrevi, da maneira como descreves Frigga, parece-me uma mulher muito sensata e acolhedora, não sei se isso faz sentido mas é a sensação que me transmite :c
E quanto ao ambiente equilibrado em casa,precisamos desse equilibrio em todo o lado,seja casa,escola,trabalho...Quando vou a lugares em que o ambiente é um caos e um desiquilibrio total começo a passar mal xP tu sabes isso,tu vês isso infelizmente.

Quanto ao texto tens ali uns errozitos mas depois eu digo-tos :o para corrigires sim? Amo-te <3 vamos lá começar a trabalhar fotos para o teu blog ficar mais colorido e alegre :D

Sim amor obrigado hehe e fotos pois pode ser, mas claro que tem de haver um bom ambiente em todo o lado, mas onde tem de haver um começo de harmonia, é em casa, é de lá que partimos e é de lá que temos de levar os bons ensinamentos, a boa energia, para enfrentar a vida lá fora, nascemos e ficamos em casa durante um tempo a ser preparados para o mundo la fora, depois nós é que temos de arranjar paz lá fora, mas no lar, no lar doce lar lol, tem de haver equilibrio.
