The Mysteries of the Stone of Ing - Wulf Ingessunu.

A Pagan Stone which was used as a step in a Sussex churchyard was uncovered in 1938. Until recently this stone was a mystery, then a Woden's Folk supporter told me of it being in the Church in Steyning, and that it had an Anglo-Saxon Runic carving on it. After some investigation, and visits to the church I discovered that it held a mystery that was unknown up until now. This mystery concerns the Divine Ancestor of the English, and the connections of the Stone with the English Tribes of Angeln. The Stone is also connected to the Royal Line of the West Saxons and to King AEthelstan in particular.

The White Stone.

The White Stone is carved with the runes - Gyfu-Ken-Ing - which could be seen as Gift of Ing around the Ken-Rune which can mean Hero or Firebrand and which relates to the Divine Child found in European Mythology. This is emphasised by the name of the area - Steyning - which translates literally as Stone-Ing, hiding its relation to the Holy Stone of Ing. The legend surrounding the Christian "Saint" - Cuthman - has remarkable symbolism that appears to be related to the God Ing, also known as Sceaf, and to Ingvi-Frey of Norse Mythology.

In the very same church porch is yet another old stone, less ancient than the White Stone but just as important. This is said to be the coffin-lid of King AEthelstan, father of king Alfred the Great. King Alfred ordered a reorganisation of the genealogy of the Royal House of the West Saxons, and added the names Beow, Sceaf and Scyld. Sceaf is also known as Ing.

Around 990 CE a nobleman of Royal descent, Ealdorman AEthelweard, added this note to the altered genealogy,

" This Sceaf came to land in a light Boat, surrounded by weapons, on an island in the ocean which is called Scani. He was indeed a very clever child unknown to the folk of that land. However, they took him in and raised him as carefully as if he were one of their own kin and afterwards elected him king. And King AEthelwulf came from the line of his descendants." (my Emphasis).

From this we can see that King AEthelwulf claimed descent from Sceaf, who we know also to be called Ing.

Mystery of Ing

Ing is the God who gave his mane to England ("Ing-Land"); he has also been associated with the constellation of Bootes which revolves around the North Star. Bootes is shaped like a "bag" and it is thus perhaps significant that the sculpture of Cuthman outside the church has a bag. The connection appears to be that Cuthman left Chidham and pushed his wagon with his "mother" on it over to Steyning. The name "Chidham" would appear to translate as "bag-ham"; this, interestingly, is on a small sea-inlet which may well indicate that the journey of the White Stone came by sea originally. As Bootes, Ing is the power that pushes the Waen (Seven stars - Great Bear), which was called Woden's Waen by the English. In Greek Mythology Bootes is a culture-bearer figure (like Ing/Sceaf) who is also associated with the oxen (like Cuthman). The power of Ing (Bootes) thus lays in the Ur-Rune. This is the Primal Force and an Archetypal Force.

The name "Cuthman" is related to kith or kin, thus Kin-man, which is right in regard to the Divine Ancestor of the English. It is interesting to note that Bootes is also called The Clamourer which hints that Ing is the Awakener - this relating to the awakening of The Northern Mother (Mother of the Revolutions of Time) associated with the Great Bear. From this it is clear that the English Destiny is unfolding in the stars, and England has a leading role to play in the awakening of the Folk.

The Gra-El - Gift of Ing

The Gift of Ing is the mean meaning of the name Gungnir which is the Spear of Woden. This has its runic representation in the Gar-Rune of the Anglo-Saxon Rune-Row. Of interest the Celtic Root GAR means Stone. We have the runic sequence Calc-Stan-Gar which are the three Grail Runes hidden in the English Rune-Row. The Calc-Rune is the cup, but the Latin Calc can also relate to Stone through chalk (White Stone); the Stan-Rune has the meaning stone (White Horse Stone), and the Gar-Run is thus related to the Stone of Ing through its shared meaning with the Spear of Woden.

It is interesting to note that there are two stones at the White Horse Stone, there being a small coffin-shaped stone next to the main stone. Is this a coincidence, there being a coffin-shaped stone next to the Stone of Ing? The White Horse Stone is associated with the Divine Twins - Hengest and Horsa - whose lineage goes back to Woden. The Sword wielded by Hengest (Hunlafing Hidleoman - "The Hun-Bequest") was that wielded by AEtla the Hun; this was passed to Cerdic and Cynric - Divine Twins of the Royal House of the West Saxons (as Sigbrand). King AEthelstan is thought to have wielded this sword when he founded the English Nation. This is the Sword of the Wolsungas wielded by Wolsunga Kings and the Wulfingas, of which Helgi the Wulfinga is the Last Avatar (Kalki Avatar) who will arise in the White Island (Albion - England) at the start of the Age of Ing.

The Ing-Rune is associated with the Genetic Code and the DNA Spiral (Mystery of the Blood); the Gar-Rune, meaning Gift of Ing hides the mystery of the fulfillment of the Holy Grail (Gra-El = Stone of Light) which is the Evolving DNA of Man-Kind. This is linked to the new millennium - the Age of Ing - in which this will be fullfilled. The Solar Race is the Coming Race that will replace man after the catastrophic disasters which are already escalating, and which will reach their peak at the end of the Wolf-Age.

The Calc-Rune (as its name suggests) is associated with Kalki - the Last Avatar. This is HelgiH (Helgi the Wulfinga) who is The Hooded Man prophersied to arise in the "Days spawned of the Evil Brood" - the era we live in today. The mysteries of the Gra-El are unfolding as we enter Year 5 of the Age of Ing (2005).
