Only a very small amount of human DNA is human, meaning all animals and all living creatures on the Earth are also our ancestors. Even the space bacteria that started life on earth are our ancestors. All the animals that came before humans are our ancestors. Ancestors are also the humans of all ancient cultures who figured out how to survive as humans on the earth and then later on overcame that level, of being hunter-gatherers surviving to the level of developing complex human cultures once humans started to settle as farmers. All ancient humans are our ancestors as well as all ancient life. All of anyone’s line are the strongest lifeforms that overcome the struggle to survive long enough to reproduce. They represent the strength of uruz. They are the ones smart enough to have developed all human knowledge and culture we now have. All this is what it means to worship the ancestors, honoring that which they have given to us going back to the beginning of time from the space bacteria that formed life here to our direct family line to all that lays in between this. This heritage that the ancestors give us going all the way back to those space bacteria to what we have now, this is othala. Primal consciousness (fire) is fehu. The order of the runes represent the development and evolution of all life from the simplest to the most advanced. Life develops as a ladder taking steps higher and higher each laid down by those we came before.
Hail to the ancestors, the givers of prosperity, knowledge, culture, and the spiritual protectors of their offspring. Hail the Alfar and Disir!

★・・・・・・★・・・・・・★ Merry meet! Blessed be! 🌛🌝🌜 ｡･:*:･ﾟ★, ｡･:*:･ﾟ☆ ｡･:*:･ﾟ★, ｡･:*:･ﾟ☆ ☆Magickal Bio: I am a male Wiccan/Witch. I work with Norse deities mostly, but sometimes some of other pantheons such as Hindu, African, Greek/Roman, Buddhist, or Celtic deities. Even since my youngest days I remember sensing the magick in nature, and I had a strong knowing that witches could be either gender, and that most witches were good. Halloween has always been my favorite holiday. I first got into Wicca, tarot, and magick back around 1991. I went on to study the runes, and got strongly into Asatru (Norse Paganism) for a number of years. Later I focused on Hinduism, which is in many ways the eastern version of Wicca. I also had a Buddhist phase. I've also dabbled in astrology, Tantra, Voodoo, and yoga. Finally recently back into Wicca again after all these years. The spiritual journey is a path that can lead in many directions. I've always had a love for knowledge of spiritual topics, so have studied many things over the years. I really am fascinated by the older traditional forms of Wicca, but mixing in some modern innovations. I much prefer working skyclad. I see the beauty in the Charge of the Goddess, and feel it is also important to balance this with a Charge of the God. I love that traditional Wicca draws upon the potency of the sexual alchemy of attraction between female and male energies, represented as the loving union of Goddess and God, symbolized in the Great Rite. I feel that magick is an important tool in spiritual development. It is a potent way for any spiritual seeker to transform themselves in ways that foster powerful spiritual growth and self healing. Traditional forms of Wicca focus on this, on the development of the individual as a process. Wicca in it's more traditional forms is a powerful mystery school system. I also enjoy certain elements of more modern innovations within Wicca, such as solitary practice, and being able to learn how to become a witch through books and the knowledge to be found online, without needing to rely upon a group, since covens are not accessible for all people. 🌛🌝🌜 ｡･:*:･ﾟ★, ｡･:*:･ﾟ☆ ｡･:*:･ﾟ★, ｡･:*:･ﾟ☆ ☆More About Me: I am a non-smoker. I am vegan. I only mostly drink alcohol within rituals, rarely otherwise. I don't do any substances. I mostly prefer to use natural body care products. I like to eat organic and healthy as much as I can. I like fitness and exercise. I am child-free by choice, and that is something I don't plan to ever change. I am like a substance-free spiritual hippie with some gothic influences. I enjoy BDSM. My orientation within BDSM is as a Dom. I am unmarried and enjoy dating women of like mind. Other things I like: yoga, history, travel, camping, astrology, and online virtual reality (such as Second Life) . 🌛🌝🌜
