Iceland produces some of the most beautiful and unique music in the world. The 2005 documentary Screaming Masterpiece takes a look at the ancient, magical roots of Icelandic music and the genius of Iceland’s contemporary musicians. The film includes live footage of Sigur Ros, Bjork, mum, Johann Johannsson, and many others.
Similarly beautiful and unique is Icelandic culture’s magical system of runic sigils (or staves).
Follow this link to a full directory of staves for later use.
The stave below is the Vegvísir, a symbol used to navigate to safe harbor in bad weather. An ancient Icelandic manuscript says “if this sign is carried, one will never lose one’s way in storms or bad weather, even when the way is not known”
Now have a look at this crop circle from 2009.
The people of Iceland are subject to incredibly harsh environmental conditions, dangers at sea, catastrophic volcanic activity, supernatural interactions with the huldufolk (invisible ‘Hidden Folk’ living inside rocks) and possible gateways to the cities of Shamballa and Agartha within the Hollow Earth. As such they have developed a highly advanced magical system of sigils to aid in protection, fertility, prosperity and access to remote realms.
Speaking of hidden worlds beneath Iceland, a recent study of the North Atlantic has discovered an ancient submerged landscape. The flooded land is complete with rivers and mountains,
The burning scientific question, according to White, is what made this landscape rise up, then subside within 2.5 million years? “From a geological perspective, that is a very short period of time,” he said.
Although Atlantis is pretty far of the mark, there is a chance that this near polar, underwater landscape may be connected with the mythical realm of Hyperborea
So how does one put all this information to use? It’s a simple recipe – consecrate your space, play some Icelandic music from the film that moves you, pick or create a sigil for safe navigation, and go on a voyage to realms unseen.
Let us know how it turns out. Sweet dreams.
