For me, it's not a religion or a philosophy, but a way of life, something that makes my living reasonable
    The same is true for me also. I have always felt a ''pull' toward the natural world, which I believe is an ''inherent'' aspect of the germanic People.
    Growing up I was always the one to denounce the practise of a semitic faith in my own family, because its not a thing i could ever harmonize with my inner needs. Heathery, on the other hand, felt as natural to me as the world around, where I used to make-believe that I was in Mother Europe with my true People. I think its an awesome connection to ones origins, to be honest.
    I ''discovered'' Heathenry through a friend -well, through his brother actually- and I have been developing my interest ever since.

    well my mother was wiccan but with strong ties to the northern gods. as a child and even now i loved mythology and just kept getting more and more drawn into what is heathenry. is wasn't until a few years ago that i actually realized there was more people than myself who followed the path of the our ancestors and there were books on many peoples views on worship and such. i know without being there and seeing it i could never really create the religion of old but at least i will do my duty to the gods, and my kin.

    For me, it has pretty much been things I have always believed in, but I always thought that my beliefs were unique to me. I've always believed in spirits of the land and nature, the spirits of my ancestors, and that there were many gods and goddesses. When I was young I used to like to draw swastikas on things before I even knew anything about Nazis (as far as I can remember). I got in trouble in school in 4th grade for it. They thought I needed counseling! Through the years I looked into various spiritual paths, and none of them seemed 'right' to me. Eventually I learned about Heathenry, and I knew that it was for me.

    I have met with the Heathenry in my childhood and teenage. F.e. If you see a black cat, you must spit back above your left shoulder. Another things are that you must step above the threshold. If you must go back to the flat after you step out the door, you must sit and see you in the mirror. When you drink short drink, you must the last drop give the soil or the floor.

    With the Ancient Germanic heathenry I have met in the primary school's library when I borrowed a book about the Sagas of Germanic Gods. After it I have collected the information about the culture and belief of our ancestors, f.e. now here.

    "Remember that, even when those who move you be kings or men of power, your soul is in your keeping alone. When you stand before God, you cannot say, "But I was told by others to do thus,"or that virtue "was not convenient at the time." This will not suffice."
    /King Baldwin IV in the Kingdom of Heaven/

    It's interesting to read this ancient thread and to review my account of what happened. As we grow older, our perception of things change, and as such - with more distance thereto - I see my childhood as less damning now, and less loathsome than I did as a tender eighteen year-old, understanding its learnings much more closely.

    What is surprising though is that the moment of 'discovery' is still very vivid in my mind and that it feels as though it was yesterday (or at least the day before yesterday) and I frequently muse about that moment, especially when observing nature whilst hiking outside.
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    Well my first experience with Norse was from the game Valkyrie Profile. I converted to Norse after giving 5 other religions a chance and remembering my grandmother telling me our family came to the US from Sweden. I must have been 8 years old or so when she told me. The game didn't convert me it was just my first experience on finding out about the Religion.

    If this turns out to be a double post sorry. My wi fi is messed up.

    I have always been drawn to history and nature as far back as I can remember. These strong interests subsequently led to me delving into my family's past and roots, which in turn led me to the beliefs of my ancestors.

    Then in 2009 while researching the culture of the Norse, I stumbled upon a website that outlined Asatru. Reading through I was amazed at how the morals that I strived to live by were mirrored by Asatru. I was already familiar with the Norse Pantheon and some of its lore but had always looked at it as a dead religion. That notion quickly changed as I realized that all along the Gods had been with me manifested by my surroundings, actions, and now by my beliefs.
    All Gods. Are slavers, they use splendid names and promote their magnificence through stories and books praising themselves.

    They all look for slaves, servants, believers followers.

    If they are so great and powerful why would they need me?

    All I want is my freedom.

    And I do find that in nature


    What Jews did in the banking industry to make you a debt slave,

    The same is done in the spiritual world to turn you into a slave.

    All hat God business (no matter which religion) ends up enslaving people. It is a satanic scam. They use spiritual methods, special experiences, unusual conditions, insights, vision etc. it's all but gimmicks.

    The gods of the magnificent ancient cultures are the preternatural entities that the God of the gods, the Creator, threw out of heaven. These gods, so-called, have terrorized mankind ever since.

    First heard about vikings when I was about 5-6 years old. I got keen on their religion and have been more positive to it than christianity throughout my life.
