I've been watching your videos for the first time recently and was surprised to see that someone I've been watching from YouTube actually has a deviantArt account. The first video I saw was on Álfablót. Some cultures around the world utilize alters with food offerings, so I was looking to see if the Norse had an equivalent ritual, which led me to blots. Blots in themselves aren't new to me, but I've been trying to find more information about them as I've never done them.
I like that you put references on your page, it makes me want to buy ''Witchcraft and Magic in the Nordic Middle Ages'' now, is that a good book for in-depth details? Money isn't in my life, so I'm just asking to make sure it's worth buying whenever I can. It has high reviews though.

Your webpages and videos have been great from what I've seen. I can't say when I'll get around to it all since I'm busy with university courses. Good luck to you and keep the research going.

Hello there! Thank you so much ^^ glad to know you enjoy the content I create on Youtube. Yes "Witchcraft and Magic in the Nordic Middle Ages" is a good book and I found it useful, but take in mind that in the academic field there is little knowledge about the religion of the Norse and magical practices, but you may find that book useful. Btw, thank you for the watch ^^ and good luck in university. Cheers!

I just watched two more videos, but I have no YouTube account to comment on them.
You described nature aspects of the gods in a video which made me think about some ideas that ran through my head years ago. I wanted to write about it but I never got around to it. I once saw an image on a website that compared the Midgard serpent to the mid-ocean's ridges, which made me imagine the gods in animistic ways. Ice giants immediately made me think of comets and Thor as Earth's magnetosphere as his connection with the sky. Freya I could see as biology. The cow liking the ice at the beginning could represent cattle ranchers migrating north as the last ice age was ending. It's fun to think about anyways, and you're more familiar with the broader view of Norse mythology, so you can take my idea and run with it. But I find this to be a bit too materialistic now, to be comparing the pantheon with nature and science. So it's just an idea.

The video on Rokkatru was interesting as well, especially when you mentioned Satanism because I was watching a video about Heka magic before, an Egyptian form of magic, where some satanists were describing the concept of internalizing gods instead of externalizing gods, which puts the gods outside of yourself, creating separation between us and the gods rather than bringing them to us. This video is around two hours long, but if you have time, you may find this good: www.youtube.com/watch?v=qFAmjR… They seem a bit like Santeria to me more than Satanists, but categories aren't important to me. Lately, I've been finding that a big problem in life comes from people tying to fit everything into categories. I often read posts online like, "you're a pagan, therefore you must do this and cannot do that," which really makes me think more about how absurd life really is. Also in my journey of trying to learn more, I find myself having to unlearn about just as much. But I'll save you from details so I don't end up writing a gigantic life's story.

There is so much more I need to learn about the history behind various types of paganism. My upbringing is actually Christian, typical American perhaps, but around the year 2010 was when I began exploring the Norse ways with a fascination in elves, runes, and Icelandic magic. Norse paganism is what I feel more closely with now but I enjoy learning about world beliefs and folklore. It's hard to grasp though because of all the names to remember. My memory is not good enough to be book smart. Then there is so much material not available in English, so I often reach points where I can't go any further. Hinduism for example, I find that to be lacking in information available in English. I took a course earlier this year on Medieval history and early Christianity, which was interesting because of how it began with mysticism and some deep philosophical writings, then eventually led to witch hunts and materialism. Odd turn of beliefs but it's funny to think about how Christianity used to be more like the occult when it was new in Europe.

I feel like I could ask you a hundred questions, but I'm sure you're more busy than I am, so I won't.
If you need any help on projects or research, I may be able to do so. Creating maps is something I can probably do for whatever, between digital art over the years and now with learning ArcGIS. Natural sciences and magic are subjects I might be able to offer advice on. I don't feel like an expert in anything but I might have the random answer to a random question.
